Vintage life magazine!

I have been getting a fab magazine called Vintage Life, I found this on a trip in Cornwall. The magazine has fantastic vintage content, such as a fashion section where you can explore the latest vintage fashion. I love these pages as they show affordable finds that ooze vintage beauty!
You will also find a section that covers beauty, makeup and hair, showing how to create a vintage look step by step such as creating a rockabilly inspired hair flower and a lifestyle section that covers real life gorgeous vintage inspired weddings and scrumptious recipes!

Nails and lips!

I have been loving these latest additions to my collection! My July favourites!

In my eyes lips n nails which are groomed makes a lady tres chic!

Nails- nails inc basil street! A nude shade that is subtle and sophisticated! Love it! Lasts a long time even after doing the washing up! And this is without a base or top coat!

Lips- firstly MAC kinda sexy in a matte finish. A peachy shade with a hint of pink. A moisturising lipstick that lasts. I love MAC though a little pricey. Add lipgloss for an evening look.

Lips- a gorgeous organic lipsalve from balance me. A rose scent that adds so much moisture! I love it!


Brights! fashion love!

Here is a collection of inspiration for the bright fashion trend....cheryl cole has shown how to work it in her new video....love love love it!!

Whether you go all out on a whole bright outfit, mixing various bright colours...or just add a splash by painting your nails or smudging your lips with a lushious shade you will look fab and work that neon/bright look!!

Fashion obsession!

Hi everyone!
                    Hope you are all well! My baby is now a month old! my golly it has flown past quickly! I am finding that I still cant go out to vintage fairs or my little trips of joy for vintage finds! So at the moment i am trying to get my wardrobe in order and see what i can fit into and wear as i am breastfeeding....and my golly is it hard to wear the latest trends when i need to consider feeding my little boy.

Here are my latest obsessions that i am longing to purchase!

Studded jacket...

I love blazers, leather and the rock it out look with studs galore!

Team with skinny jeans, and stunning high heels for a sexy look! I love red lipstick, so slap that on with eyeliner and glossy lips!


I am loving these soft colours, such a pretty look! Reminds me of a sweet shop! yum!! If you dont want to do the whole look then just paint your nails a pretty shade or smudge your lips with a lushcious colour!

Well i am going to try and make sure i blog when little one is asleep! Hope you enjoy this post! I am going to try and incorporate my love for fashion, makeup and home interior a bit more......ciao! x
