Perfect Summer Shoe

098acb16b631ad4fcee25fb207726e7e

I have been looking for a new summer shoe, and have had my eyes on the Chanel espadrilles for a long time.

They are the perfect summer shoe… wear them with jeans and t-shirt, bikini or summer dress.

Now I just need to save my pennies as these puppies have a price tag.

Nailed It

Nailed It

So I received an e-mail from Pinterest the other day, about how nail art is trending. After seeing the e-mail I started to notice on my days out that nail art is trending, on the hands of old and young alike.

I have tried to do some nail art before, and failed drastically so I tend to stick to the, boring one color (fav color… Chanel Black Pearl). However I do think nail art is super cool and would love to practice again.

So after searching I came across a blog called ‘nailed it’ (www.blognailedit.co), there are so many different styles of nails for you to try out along with step by steps.

My goal is to follow at least a few of these nail tutorials, to jazz up my summer wardrobe.

How do you wear your nails?

Beauty… You’ve been HACKED!

I was hanging out with my friend over the weekend, and we got to talking about… beauty hacks. These little ingenious notes are taking over the internet space like crazy! So I thought I would jump on board and give you my top 5 beauty hacks.

1. To set your lipstick, hold a tissue over your lips and dust your fav translucent powder over the tissue.

2. Dust baby powder over lashes in between mascara application for ‘false’ lash look

3. Conceal dark under eye circles by using, orange eyeshadow before concealer.

4. Use school glue as a base coat, before applying glitter. This makes it A LOT easier to remove.

5. Heating up your eyeliner pencil creates are more intense ‘gel-liner’ like pencil…. remember to let it cool down.
