Painted fingers

Hello Loves!

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.

The ‘natural’ look

Hey Loves!

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:

Nails Galore

Hello Loves!

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.

They can be ordered here: http://www.zara.com/ca/en/sale/woman/shoes/glitter-booties-c541568p2381517.html

TIPS:

– 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

Happy shopping

BACK IN 2015

I’M BACK!

Well it’s the first Monday of 2015, which means for most of you it’s back to the daily work grind. For me being self employed, this means attempting to get my chocolate and turkey filled butt to the gym!

I admit I am NOT a gym rat… in fact I hate it! I am envious of people that love the gym.

Yoga = hate it gives me a headache

Running = apparently I have a weird run

Swimming = I might drown

Anyway 2015 is my year to turn myself into a definite GYM RAT.

Day one:

Well my progress so far is my outfit… got that sorted!

CHICAGO

indexHey Guys!

I am so sorry I have been MIA… however my life has taken over … SUCKY! I do hope to get back into the spirit of writing as I was loving it.

But just a little update I am currently in Chicago and LOVING it… I mean who doesn’t love Chicago???

So as I am in Chicago I thought I would let you into my TOP 5 things to do while your in the windy city.

 

1. BILLY GOAT TAVERN

The famous Billy Goat Tarvern is DEFINITELY a place you have to go. Established in 1934 this place has seen it all. So take it from me YOU GOTTA EAT HERE… oh and order a double double.

2. CLOUD GATE

Cloud Gate or as I (and many many others) like to call it ‘The Bean’. Is just a really cool sculpture by Anish Kapoor’s located in Millennium park. Great place to take some ‘selfies’.

3. NAVY PIER

It’s hot, it’s summer, you want a beer or a margarita? Head to Navy Pier located right on the water (obviously) this place has some serious people watching and guess what! You can walk around with a drink… epic!

4. JOHN HANCOCK OBSERVATORY

You can’t go to the city and not see the city from the sky. The 360 views at the John Hancock building are unreal… and if you dare try the TILT. Which is basically a glass window which you stand in and it TILT’s to scare the crap out of you. AWESOME.

5. MAGNIFICENT MILE

Or MAG MILE as ‘us’ Chicagoan’s say, is the PERFECT place to get your shop on… stuffed with high street names such as TopShop and High ends names such as Burberry… this mile of shopping has something for everyone!

 

Hopefully you are heading to Chicago at some point and if not… set a date! You will love it.
