Look Book 04: Plum Two Piece

What do you think of this look I put together?

This two piece from Pretty Little Thing is a beautiful plum shade, a warm colour for the colder months! This look would be perfect for a birthday party or night out with pals! I paired the outfit with my scrappy black heeled sandals!

I think the two piece design is always a good way to pull you in at the waist and the exposed midriff makes the outfit a little bit different when comparing it to a dress!

With my makeup I went for a brown and gold blend of eyeshadow, I also added a small amount of plum along the crease of my eyelid to tie in the outfit a little further! For the Lips I thought I’d give the look a colour pop with a deep red shade.

What do you think of this look? I’d love to hear your comments!

Lots of Love

The Psychology of red lipstick 💋!

Red lipstick is a statement. We all know that. We tend to save this shade for a night out or date night so what is it about this shade that women love?

First of all, studies conducted by Psychology Today have found that both men and women find the opposite sex to be more attractive when they are wearing red or even standing against a red background. Red is seen as daring and sexy. So wearing this lip colour boosts the confidence of females because they instantly feel more attractive and assertive.

Some women say that this colour helps them to re-assert their femininity on days when they aren’t feeling their best. Others say it’s just plain HOT!

Red is well known as the colour of love, a red rose is signified as the ultimate valentines gift. So if you’re headed out this valentines make sure you put your red lipstick to good use!

I, myself don’t tend to wear a lot of red lipstick. I tend to go for more plums and nudes. With this blog post in mind today I went with the red theme and It did actually make me feel amazing and indeed confident!

What is your go to shade?

LOOK BOOK 03: Bringing Sexy Back

Hey hey beauties!

So first off let’s tackle the title of this post. Yes I called it bringing sexy back! Why? Because why the hell not!.. The dress I’m about to talk to you about Is SEXAYYYY!

That doesn’t mean I think I look super sexy or want people to have sex with me when I wear this dress. To me, what it means is it’s a bit daring, sassy and sometimes reveals parts of your body you wouldn’t expect from a dress! It makes me FEEL sexy!

And here it is…

This is little black dress gone bad! As you can see the length is modestly sitting below the knee, however the tie detail at the side takes it to another level! Indeed making it a little less boring and a little more daring!

Because you can tighten and loosen the straps wherever you wish, you can really tailor this dress to your body shape, which I think is amazing!

I chose to pair this dress with a simple black sandal heel to fit in with the tie detail. With the hair I went for a slightly messy look to fit with the un-tamed dress!

What do you think of this look?

Would you wear this dress?

I would love to hear from you! And if you enjoyed this post, don’t forget to subscribe!

Colours that suit light skin tones.

Hey hey people!

If you’re anything like me, unless you have a whole bottle of spray tan on you, the colour black is not your friend.

My skin is very fair and freckled, so sometimes wearing dark, harsh colours, actually makes me look ill. So I wanted to share some of the colours I’m loving on me at the moment!

WHITE 🐭

When I wear white, my skin looks considerably darker than normal! (Let’s pretend white is a colour for a moment please). You can wear it any time of year, and literally pair it with any other colour! So you can’t go wrong there really can you!

PINK 🐙

I just love wearing pinks, peaches and nudes at the moment. It seems that when I wear them I feel warmer. I’ve realised it’s also a good colour match with the ginger hair I have going on at the moment.

This isn’t just restricted to clothing by the way, because I’m also rocking the pink eyeshadows at the moment too!

What?!? You say… It’s not as bad as you’re imagining, here’s an example:

What do you think? It’s possible I’m just looking forward to the summer too much but I am really feeling the lighter colours at the moment! Velvet reds are a distant memory!

The last colour I’m going to share with you today is this beauty!

ROYAL BLUE 🌃

You might think that blue could only look cold on you but I find this colour actually works really well with my skin, it doesn’t make me look more blue! The harshness of it actually serves the purpose of making me look more pink!

What are your favourite colours to pair with your skin tone?
