Hi, I am a little obsessed with Missguided at the moment and also a little obsessed with this dress!
First of all it's velvet... Say no more!
Secondly I love how versatile and easy to wear it is. In the pictures above I've styled it very casual with over the knee socks (you could also double layer and add tights under the socks) and a thick coat and scarf.
I feel it's a casual look whilst also making a bit of a statement with it being velvet and electric blue.
Whilst this dress looks cute as a casual outfit, it also looks pretty damn cute for a night out!
I've teamed it with my trusty river island boots and a slick of MAC 'up the amp' lipstick.
This lipstick is another obsession of mine at the moment and I love the slightly clashing contrast of the colour of the lipstick and the blue of the dress.
Its been so miserable here in England the past week or so, as it hasn't stopped raining and its so cold! I am very much indeed looking forward to some warmer weather.
Getting bored of my winter coats now so I pulled this khaki coat out of my wardrobe, which is very thin so I decided to layer it with (the also very thin) lace cardigan. I lived in this lace cardigan during the summer so it was nice to get some wear out of it even though its freeezing.
Looking back through these photos, I thought it had kind of a Free People vibe (maybe, I don't no, I wish) anyhow I really love Free People and if I could afford it I would have everything off of there website. If you are not aware of Free People you should definitely check them out.
I'm also still obsessed with my Dr.Martens and I'm even thinking of getting another pair of the more traditional lace up ones.
P.S Excuse the dirty old trainers in the back ground!
My first post of the year is a review of the guerlain terracotta 4 seasons bronzer in moyen 05 brunette.
Who doesn't love a bronzer in the depths of winter, especially a bronzer as fabulous as this little beauty. Never before have I been so impressed with a product and so excited to use it.
First off the packaging is so beautiful and it even comes in its own little pouch. It is delicately scented which just adds to the luxurious feel and the consistency is so creamy which makes it super easy to blend.
The four shades means that you can use this bronzer in many ways whether for contouring, highlighting and even as an eyeshadow. In fact because the bronzer is completely matte I really love using it to contour.
Here's a swatch of all for colours, the furthest one being all four mixed together. Guerlain recomend using the top half of the bronzer during the winter as these two are the lightest shades and will give a subtle bronzed glow, during the spring they recommend using all four colours for a more intense colour.
Lastly during the summer when the skin is darker they recommend using just the bottom half of the palette for a dark summer glow.
Here I mixed all four together as I must admit I am a bit of a bronzer addict and even though we are unfortunately not yet blessed with spring weather I still love a tan!
The bronzer contains SPF 10 and is enriched with pure gold which gives the skin a gorgeous glow without using shimmer or glitter.
I've heard that every 30 seconds at least one terracotta bronzer is sold in the world and although at £46.50 it's pricey, it really doesn't surprise me. It's certainly the best bronzer I've ever used and I can see myself owning a few more geurlain bronzer's by the end of the year. I'm a fan for sure!
Do you have any guerlain products that you recomend?
So here is a quick little outfit of the day of some clothing that I've recently picked up. Tartan is everywhere at the moment, who doesn't love it?!
I thought instead of going for the traditional red or green print, I would mix it up and go with grey. I know I will find a lot more clothes to wear with these as I can mix them with colour as well as black, white or grey, which is probably a bit harder with red or green tartan.
I'm thinking a beautiful cropped, pastel, fluffy sweater would look cute, so if any of you know where I can find one please let me know. I'm so happy with them and they are hella comfy!
I'm still obsessed with my river island boots and even though its cold now I just layer them with thick socks, which makes it super acceptable apart from when its raining. Wet feet... never a good thing!
As soon as I saw this necklace I knew I had to have it! I love the fact that it looks like it could have been picked up from a street market in Morocco. Unfortunately this is not the case!
Lately I've been swaying more towards silver jewelry, which is very unusual for me as i am normally a devoted gold wearer but i think i may have been turned!
Hope you like the outfit!

I just wanted to show this smokey eye that is a staple look of mine. I'm definitely a smokey eye girl over any other look and I achieved this look by using just 3 products!
Firstly I used shimmering copper eyeshadow all over my eyelid from the NARS Isolde palette. This is such a lovely warm colour and and blends perfectly. NARS eyeshadows are my absolute favourite, they have great shades and they last forever.
After applying eyeshadow I lined my eyes with MACs power point eye pencil in 'duck' concentrating on flicking the line out slightly at the corner of my eyes to create a slight winged effect.
I then took a blending brush and smudged out the liner to soften the line and create that smokey effect.
After I was happy with the look I then applied lashings of the BOURJOIS volumiser mascara in ultra black.
If you prefer a more intense smokey eye then you could always swap the brown liner for a black kohl liner.
I apologise for my spotty chin guys, it's Christmas, I've been indulging and my chin clearly doesn't approve. Also I'm waiting for my eyebrows to be threaded so I'm aware they are looking a little crazy.
What are your favourite make up looks?
