Let's play dress up with ASOS & Nivea ♥

Ladies some exciting news, ASOS & Nivea have teamed up for a competition which gives you the chance to win their new capsule collection. To celebrate the launch of Nivea's new 2Black and White" deodorants, they teamed up ASOS to create a timeless collection of dresses.

The dresses are very monochrom, black and white, to represent Nivea's new deodorant. The new deodorants have aptly been named Black and White as they have been formulated to minimise white marks on black clothes and also to reduce yellow staining on your white clothing. Great right? With two lovely scents Clear and Fresh, and they available in both a spray and a roll on. I bought both the sprays about 2 weeks ago, and have to say they really are great.

So put your styling hat on and go create your outfit! I will be posting my creation later on this evening :)

Do you have lovely lips? ♥

Elemis launched a new skin care range target for us young guys and gals, who fall in between skin care 'brackets' teens to 20s. I will be reviewing each of the products but I wanted to start with the Lovely Lips Quenching lip balm.

After a cold winter my lips and skin have both taken a hit, I have been struggling to find something to fix my sore and chapped lips. Some lip balms may be great but the taste/smell often puts me off. Enriched with passionflower oil, sweet almond oil, peppermint oil and vitamin E, this packed full of goodies to soften, condition and thoroughly hydrate your pout. With the yummy scent of peppermint, and I finish that is glossy, I have found myself reaching for this at every moment to keep my lips looking tip top.

It is a little pricey for a lip balm at £8.00, but I've spent a lot more than that on lip balms here and there that turn out to be no good and a waste of money, this works which is why I would buy this again.

You can buy it on-line here

Chelsea girl ♥

River Island is a brand with great British fashion heritage and a founding
member of the British High Street. Originally starting out as Lewis
Separates, the brand became Chelsea Girl in 1965 before evolving into
River Island in 1988.

Inspired in the 60’s by our King’s Road store in Chelsea, Lewis Separates
became Chelsea Girl and lead with a fusion of fashion and popular culture
to become the UK’s first fashion boutique chain.

So River Island will be celebrating the launch of the Chelsea Girl collection by offering their followers in the  Facebook community the chance to be a stylist for and River Island on an all expenses trip to London.. Sounds amazing doesn't it?!

Each week the creator of the most individual outfit of the week wins £200 in River Island vouchers. An overall winner will be chosen at the end of the four weeks. This winner will get to style a fashion shoot in London, all expenses paid, which will appear on and  

Head over to for more information on how to enter.

The new Chelsea Girl SS11 collection has a heritage and vintage spirit inspired by the original brand, but with a unique 21st century twist. Floral and geometric-inflected prints, wispy fabrics and sinuous shapes bring together a discernibly bohemian aesthetic that captures the Chelsea Girl mystique.

I have been a big fan of their Chelsea Girl range, and I always try to get one of their Chelsea Girl Tshirts. Let's hope I nab one again this year. I am currently uploading a video to youtube showing you a blouse from the range, and how I styled it so keep your eyes peeled for when that uploads. 

For now this is the blouse, I love it!

I'm a little bit toxic ♥

I'm going to be splitting my posts on the Illamasqua Toxic Nature products as I want to give them their own little posts as I think they are just fab. As I'm sure you've guessed this post will be on the new cream pigments  that they launched with this collection. 

They were super lovely and sent me two of the colours, Hollow - A cream/nude colour and Mould - A deep blackened plum.

I am really impressed with these products, I have been using Hollow on my eyes, cheeks and lips and Mould has been my go to shade for creating a smokey eye. They give a matte and very pigmented finish, that is crease and water resistant. 

If you like your multi purpose cream products then do check these out!

RRP £17.00

Current lip combo love ♥

I have been switching between an uber bright lip then going back to my safe nude lip, when I reach for my nude colours I've been sticking to these two. Topshop Tawny gloss and MAC Myth lipstick, they work perfectly together. If you love your nude lip combo's like I do then I suggest you check both of these out.
