I am pretty much obsessed with painting my nails, I have so many polishes it’s becoming a problem. I decided to go and get my nails done professionally for a change, but nothing too extravagant i love a neutral tone and i initially went for a very pale pink, i loved it and thought it looked so elegant, but they started getting quite nasty after a couple of weeks because my makeup started to discolour them (i know eww) so i painted over them myself…And then, the most awkward thing happened- I was lighting candles in my room and then the thumb nail literally caught fire but i blew it out and shook my hand crazily and it was alright in the end, i survived the ordeal.
I decided to go and get them re-painted, I went for another pale pink but a little darker this time and i got aztec designs on two nails =) I went with my lovely cousin Glor, who also got her nails did and they looked amazinggg. We’re going to see Jay Z and she thought it would be nice to get her nails re-done before hand. I really love the shape she went for, they are so pretty! I think i might do something similar next time, but for now i am sticking to my natural looking nails- lets pray that they don’t catch on fire xo
For my Birthday I got my hair done at HoneyHand hair salon. I had heard good things about it and i never go to the hairdressers which is terrible so i decided to go and treat myself for a change.
I had a lace closure done because I am always straightening my natural hair which is really bad for it, so i thought the closure would give it a nice break, i am really keen to see if the closure has grown the front of my natural hair out.
I am using my Queen Collection Malaysian extensions which i love, it’s such nice hair and really silky and very low maintenance.
The hair was really curly but the hairdresser and i decided looser curls would look good, she blow dryed it straight and then used tongs to curl it. I really loved it, on my actual birthday I ended up using bendy rollers because i wasn’t able to get it re-tonged but i was still very happy with it. I did really like the hairdressing experience, they were really sweet and gave me a cute little cupcake.
Seeing how much better my hair looks when done professionally makes me want to go to the hairdressers more often. =) xo
It was my Birthday recently and I had a few of my friends and family round with music, food and drinks and I had the most amazing time. I wore a dress by the designer Gerda Truubon, who i interviewed for stylefoqus. The dress was amazing and so unique, I loved the colour (Burgandy) it sort of goes with the whole Fall/Autumn thing. There were amazing pearls and chains on the back of the dress so i decided not to over accessorise, I wore chunky stud earrings and a chunky gold bracelet that my mum got me from Paris.
It was my first time wearing a backless dress and I died trying to find a bra that would go (Awkward) but eventually I found one of them stick on backless and strapless bras from Primark, which worked really well =)
My Mum and I went to Paris together as a Birthday treat, which was really sweet of her,we went to Disneyland which was so good, but the only thing is that it was such a short trip, I will upload more from the trip soon x =)
I’m quite late to upload this, but i thought it would be quite nice to share my London Fashion Week experience with ya’ll. I interviewed quite a few interesting people and got some snaps of some amazing streetstyle whilst i was there. It was so cold and rainy during the week but people still came looking amazing, it was a lot of fun and there were loads of really good shows.
I couldn’t tell you what the best bit of LFW was for me but there were some really cool moments. I actually saw Anna Wintour, Tom Ford and Andre Leon Talley outside Tom Ford’s show which was so surreal! I also got to go back stage at fashion scout and see Models getting ready which was really cool as well. All in all despite getting rain in my shoes (waaaa) it was such a good experience and such fun! I met some lovely Bloggers, gurus and other fashion figures that i Lovee! All the fashion was soo inspiring as well. Hope you enjoy the pictures =)
I had an amazing time interviewing the lovely makeup artist and YouTube Guru The Queen Hadassah, make sure you check it out!
I decided to play around with day time and night time makeup looks on my beautiful friend Courtney.
For the evening look I went for more dramatic makeup. I used my Sleek mineral based eye shadow palette ‘The original 594’ and used the greens,blues and some gold. I also used my collection 2000 eye liner pen and winged the eye liner out to give her eyes some more pop. I used the false lash flutter mascara by L’oreal paris. I blended two of her foundations for this look to get the right tone for her skin, I went with Studio fix NW43 and Match Master #7
For the day time look I used my Sleek mineral based eye shadow palette ‘The original 594’I used the gold and copper colours and blended them for the look. We used her 2True plumptuous lipgloss in colour #1. I decided not to use any foundation for the look, because it’s a subtle day time look and because It’s been really hot lately. Keeping the make up minimal and giving her a touch of bronzer on the cheeks to give her a shimmery glow made her look so natural and sun kissed.I used the same eye liner and mascara for this look but i used a much more subtle hand and didn’t put as much on =) x
