Working in the cosmetics industry for over five years now, my passion still lies with experimenting with different makeup techniques and looks.
This Spring/Summer makeup trend is all about the pops of colour with hues of orange, pink and blue. Bold lips and liner is an easy way of sprucing up your daily makeup looks and bringing yourself right up to trend. Pair an electric blue liner with the easy to wear golds and browns to create this easy Spring/Summer 2014 look. Also experiment with bright pinks and oranges on the lips.

Feeling Nautical…


Feeling a little bogged down with emails and catching up with work, what better place to clear the cobwebs than with a stroll along the pier, coffee and phone in hand. Penarth Pier has always been one of those places in Cardiff that I have taken for granted, always a place that I was excited to visit as a child but slowly forgotten as clothes shopping became more of a hobby than eating ice cream and chasing waves.

Having recently purchased a Stella Mccartney style pinstripe sweater, what better place to show it off than the runway of the pier.

It’s all just Black and Grey…


After a few days of gorgeous sunshine last week, the promise of summer has quickly faded. Back to an icy breeze, relentless drizzle and grey skies. The sweaters are still well and truly at the forefront of my wardrobe, teamed with a leather pencil skirt as not to be too pessimistic about the prospect of sun. ‘The Sweater’ is one of my favourite garments, versatile, cosy and timeless.

I would also like to send a special thank you to all my readers that have followed me over from PHAZElifestyle. I’ve made the decision to pursue my love of fashion, after all life is my runway…
