So it’s Saturday… it’s time for a night out… PARTY, and this week’s Ciaté polish ‘Knee Highs’ is a perfect combination for any party outfit.
Knee Highs is a glossy deep blue…my fav kind of colour.
So makeup is NOT my forte… but I love it. I love to experiment with makeup, and make myself look different. I have learnt a LOT of tricks over the years as a wardrobe stylist, from my lovely makeup artist friends.
Although I am not as fabulous as them and never will be, I wanted to start documenting some of my makeup looks and start to experiment with you.
Look 1… I am going El Natural… basically because I have NO clue what I am doing.
Here are the products I used:
FOUNDATION: CHANEL – PERFECTION LUMIÈRE #40 BRUSH: REAL TECHNIQUES – EXPERT FACE BRUSH
BRONZE: CHANEL – LES BEIGES #40 BRUSH: REAL TECHNIQUES – BLUSH BRUSH
PENCIL: MAC – SPIKED SPOOLIE: N/A
LIPSTICK: CHANEL – ROUGE ALLUE 108
A ‘natural’ glow.
This week I have been rocking and LOVING the Ciaté London Mini Manor colour ‘Talent Scout’.
Not only do I love the name…It is this amazing purple that really seems to change its intensity in different lights… it can be really bright or deep purple… weird!
Anyway I love it!
However I have found that with the flat colours (none sparkle) they are very streaky, and I will list the colours I didn’t like in a future blog post… rant over… enjoy the pics.
After receiving this fabulous pair of Doc Martens, it seems that my shoe obsession has gone a little stir crazy!
Doc Martens are a British heritage… a MUST HAVE item… So quite obviously they are GLUED to my feet this winter.
With my lust for my Doc Martens so ever strong I put together a lookbook with 3 (and a 1/2) ways to wear your Doc Martens in the winter… enjoy.
Sweater: H&M White T: Zara Velvet Leggings: H&M
Dress: River Island Jacket: Vintage Tights: Who knows!
Jacket: Vintage Dress: Topshop Tights: Still no clue!
Dress: Topshop Tights: Aaaaaa
So it’s week two of my Ciaté London Mini Manor 2014 blog post.
This week I decided to use two colors… you know being all trendy at that!
These nails make me feel like a sparkly Barbie, using ‘Mineral Love’ and ‘Strawberry Milkshake’…. YUM!
Enjoy the pics… BTW sorry about the bad paint’man’ ship.
Hello my loves!
This morning I finally received my shipment from Zara. I have been DREAMING about these shoes, well the Saint Laurent version… but what a dupe! What a bargain!
These Zara glitter booties are such a staple in my closet already… and it’s only day one!
Here are some pics of my outfit of the day!
They can be ordered here: http://www.zara.com/ca/en/sale/woman/shoes/glitter-booties-c541568p2381517.html
– Comfort level 8
– The glitter stays on
– No grip on sole so can be slippy
– They had sold out of most sizes, I am a small 7 but ordered a 6 1/2, they fit perfectly

I was lucky enough to receive the Ciaté London Mini Manor 2014 calendar as a Christmas present… it’s a NAIL POLISH ADVENT CALENDAR!!!
What’s included? 24 GOSH DARN AMAZING NAIL POLISHES!
I love the Ciaté calendars as it’s a way to try different nail polishes without forking out an absolute fortune.
However just a note they do usually retail in Canada for about $75… which cheaper than buying all the colours. But is still an expense … so here’s a hint … if you wait until after Christmas, this set is dramatically reduced, you can get them as cheap as $25!!!
Anyway I have decided that every Friday I am going to do a swatch… I am going to paint my nails my fav colour of the week.
This week its:
ESPADRILLES, it’s a stunning ruby red. Perfect for the snowy time… it makes me feel all wintery and Dorothy like. We’re not in Kansas anymore!
