new post on the new blog - incase anyone has forgot i've moved :) 



I have moved my blog over to word press now, so please keep reading and commenting.




As I'm not in the UK, I'm missing out on the Topshop make-up launch. So I'm researching from my laptop looking out upon the gloomy weather I had not expected although the colours of the lipsticks and nail varnishes are making me very happy indeed.  
All the SS10 make-up items used lots of bright tones that have been seen on the run way complete with glitter pots which would be perfect for summer festivals to natural eye colours and highlighters which are good for daytime. The basic make-up collection includes a bit of everything for everyone - girly pink lipgloss to black nail varnish to understated natural colours perfect with this seasons bright coloured lip trends. The collection includes main make-up essentials like blushers, skin tints, nail varnish, Kohl eye liners, Eye crayons, lip balms, lipsticks, lipgloss and other bits in a massive range of this seasons favourite shades.  I'm sure these items will become make-up bag favourite's and with there cute packaging who wouldn't want a make-up bag full! 
These are some of my best picks, I really could have picked at least 20 products. 

nail varnish: 1. Parma Violet 2. Pillar Box 3. Hide and Seek 4. Gyspy Night 5. Gone Fishing 6. Grey
Lipstick: 1. Rio Rio 2. Vamp 3. Brighton Rock 
Lip Balm: Rose.
Skin Tint: Medium
Eye Liner (Kohl): Coal



Bon Voyage

The day I have been mentioning over and over has finally arrived!
I'm off to Capetown, South Africa today to visit all my gorgeous family. I'm so excited its unreal! I'm gone for 3 weeks and I'll to get a few posts in, but I suspect I will either be busy or tanning. I'll make sure to take lots of photographs to do a mega post of the whole trip when I come home (and share all the goodies I bought as well ☺)
Well my suitcase is packed and ready so I'll see you soon. 


Personally I love the styling for this photo story, I think the hair and make-up has been done to perfection aswell. The features has designs from Prada, Burberry & Lanvin.
