Personal Style // Peach Lace

Happy Friday everyone! I hope you've had a great start to your Bank Holiday weekend, I've certainly had a productive day I've filmed two videos (you can see the first one here) and took two lots of outfit photos ready for Glambeautys. Unfortunately the photos I took ended up to be a waste of time as I had my camera on the wrong settings and when it came to editing them they were too grainy to do anything with which is annoying but not to worry I got the camera back out and snapped away again. 

This is the first outfit I captured and what a stunning one it is, I actually have a wedding to go to in a few weeks time and I just think this would be perfect. The dress itself actually looks white online but in person it's actually a really gorgeous soft peachy pink, such a delicate colour and goes so well with the lace detailing. I really love the length of this dress, certainly wedding appropriate and the overall  design and fit is just stunning. With regards to sizing I went for a size 10 which is my usual size for this particular style, I think I could have gone a size smaller possibly but this fits me comfortably and I love it. 

Totally in love with this dress, I even managed to pop my wedding shoes on again it's been quite a while since I wore these... too long in fact! The shoes are Carvella for those wondering and they are actually super comfy! 

What do you think of this dress, have you got any weddings coming up this Summer?

High End Birthday Wish List

It's my birthday next month and I have been lusting after a few high end items so thought I'd share them with you and hope that my husband has a read too as he always says he never knows what to buy me, men ay! I have been searching my favourite sites and have found some gorgeous items, there are also a few here I have been wanting for quite some time so let's hope I get at least one of them this year that would be fabulous. 

First up we have Glamglow Youth Mud Treatment I actually got reminded about this product whilst searching the other day, I tried this treatment a little while back after receiving a sample in a beauty box and I have to say it's the best mask I've ever tried! My skin felt absolutely amazing after use and I'm looking for a pamper me mask as pampering is something I rarely do.. every girl needs an expensive face mask right? If I don't get this for my Birthday then I'm definitely going to buy it myself, it's £40 but if you spend over £50 at Feel Unique at the moment you can get and extra 20% off your order which obviously gives me the excuse to buy even more! If you want to know about this great offer then click here to read morethe site Voucherbin has so many great offers and deals that you don't want to miss out on, who doesn't want to save money right? The other beauty item on my wish list is this gorgeous Shimmering Sands Palette by Bobbi Brown , I mean I don't really need another eye shadow palette but how can you resist those gorgeous shades it looks like a palette that you could use for all occasions so I really think I'd get a lot of use out of it. 

Onto fashion, I have been wanting a Mulberry bag for so long now after getting my Louis Vuitton Speedy B 25 I have been on the look out for yet another gorgeous bag to add to my collection. I really love this Mulberry Small Bayswater Satchel  it's the perfect size for me when I'm out and about on my own and I love the long strap it's totally a bag you could use all year round and is number one on my wish list! The final fashion find I've been obsessed with lately are these gorgeous Valentino Rockstud Ballet Flats I absolutely adore the fact that Valentino have come out with a pair of flats that look so gorgeous, with most high end brands it's all about the heel and to be honest it doesn't appeal to me all that much so when I saw these I was like 'oh my gosh, need these in every colour!' I really love these, they are perfect for summer and look super stylish!

Lastly I have been eyeing up a new iPad, I actually have the original iPad already but Vinny has taken to it quite a lot and I usually get 'That's mine mummy!' whenever I'm using it or attempting to use it so I thought I should get myself the iPad mini 3 or maybe someone else could.... This one is super cute and it's gold! How gorgeous!

What do you think of my Birthday picks, do you have any of these already?

Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Collection

You all know I'm all about the Bronze Goddess look so when a few items from the Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Shimmering Nudes Collection popped through my door I jumped for joy! I hadn't actually tried any of the past Summer collections from Estee Lauder but it always looked so good so it was an absolute delight to be given the chance to try some of these products. The collection includes a mix of powder and gelee bronzers, creamy highlighters, a gorgeous eight colour eyeshadow palette, glossy lip and nail shades plus fabulous fragrances!

Bronze Goddess Illuminating Powder Gelee  
Let's just take a look at this stunning design, it reminds me of the sun shining through the window on a glorious summers day. I have never tried a Gelee Illuminator before, I have to say I'm super impressed. Although not as pigmented as I would have thought it to be it's still a stunning product, this powder is finely milled and super lightweight on the skin it has a sheer yet subtle shimmer to it that's just so delicate and pretty. Despite the product not being super pigmented with one swatch it's actually super build able and the peachy glow just adds a stunning effect to any makeup look, it's certainly a must have if your after a hint of sun kissed prettiness!

Bronze Goddess All Over Illuminator 
Now this little Stick Illuminator is a little deceiving huh? I actually thought it was a blush when it arrived so I popped it onto my cheeks as you do with a stippling brush and blended away. It gave a pretty rose golden finish and an almost dewy glow, since finding out it's actually an All Over Illuminator I've been popping it onto the tops of my cheek bones and other places I'd like to accentuate rather than just the cheek and it still adds a pretty amount of colour and shine, it's a gorgeous dewy product that just makes you look like a goddess and the texture blends so easily on the skin. (Also amazing on the d├ęcolletage!)

Bronze Goddess Eau Fraiche Fragrance 
I love Summer fragrances, there's just something about them that makes me feel like I'm on holiday and when your a mumma that hasn't been on a Sunny holiday in over 3 years it's something I crave. The packaging is super simple, Summery with a pretty gradient effect and gold accents the scent is nothing fruity or floral in fact it's a little like coconut sun cream! I absolutely love amber based scents and this has a heart of golden amber, creaminess of coconut milk and unwinds with sandalwood and vanilla. The perfect combination of scents for a gorgeous Summer fragrance, just perfect to throw on whilst your on your holidays or if your like me and craving a holiday!

What do you think of the Bronze Goddess Collection so far? 

Make sure you check out the rest of the collection it will be available from the Estee Lauder website and counters Nationwide from June.

What I'm Wearing & What's New From Anastasia Beverly Hills

anastasia beverly hills summer 2015

Lately I have been thinking that I never really get to experiment with makeup and fun colours so when the Anastasia Beverly Hills Summer collection popped through my letter box I just knew I had to get creative and have some fun! As a mother of a toddler I rarely get 5 minutes to even put makeup on in the morning and I find myself wearing less and less these days so it was really fun to take some time out for myself and get glammed up with these fun products. 

What I'm Wearing
Waterproof Creme Color Ice Blue
ABH Artist Palette: Dusty Rose & Phresh
Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes Mascara
Girls With Attitude Lashes: Notice Me
Brows: ABH Dipbrow Pomade Blonde

Mac Studio Fix Fluid

Too Faced Bronzer
The Balm Mary Loumanizer

ABH Gloss: Flame

Let's talk you through what's new to Anastasia Beverly Hills this Summer, if your a fan of ABH I'm sure your all very excited to see this colourful collection. 

7 New Eyeshadows
Surface of the Sun - A warm, shimmery gold (satin)
Star Cobalt - An electric, galaxy blue (metallic)
Labyrinth - A smouldering, deep orchid (metallic)
Fawn - A soft, neutral olive (matte)
Cognac - A dramatic, coppery brown (satin)
Peach Sorbet - A sultry, rose champagne (metallic)
Amber - A rich, multi-dimensional gold (satin)

6 Waterproof Creme Colors
Barbie Pink - A true hot pink
Ice Blue - A cool, aqua blue
Coral Reef - A warm, orange
Sunset - A deep, minky pink
Yellow - A canary yellow
Ocean - A Pacific blue

2 Liquid Lipsticks
Unicorn - A gorgeous lavender
Craft - A deep yet wearable plum

As you can see there are quite a few new products, I really don't know how they do it but each and every one seem pretty special to me. I haven't had a chance to try them all out properly but what I've tried so far and everything I've swatched is pretty cool. The Waterproof Creme Colours really are waterproof, they do not budge and also work well on the waterline which you can see in the images above. The shadows are all pretty neutral Summery shades although I do wish they brought a couple more colourful shades out like they did with the Creme Colors, they do all work well together though which I guess is what they were working on. 

The two new Liquid lipsticks are gorgeous too, Unicorn is not really a shade I'd wear but it's a little more wearable compared to some of the Liquid Lipsticks they already have. Unicorn is a very pretty Lavendar that I'm sure will sell pretty quick, and Craft is a shade I've seen all over Instagram lately and I think it's the perfect shade all year round. I really love berry shades and this fits into my collection beautifully! 

The new Summer collection will launch May 15th and will be available from the Anastasia Beverly Hills Website and Macy's Website/in store. Both sites do ship to the UK so go check them out!
