  • HOW MUCH DO YOU SPEND ON MAKEUP?

    Posted on 03/12/2014 by | 0 comments

    I’m a chemist makeup gal. I’ve bought department store brands in the past (usually because highly skilled salespeople convinced me I had to have the product), but I’m not convinced the pricier brands are worth the money.

    Drew Barrymore is also my favourite makeup spokeswoman.

    On the other hand, I’m a complete gadget fiend. I love my Clarisonic and my epilator. So if the Temptu system really works as well as it says, I’d be tempted to pay the £200+ price.

    I’m putting together a post on my favourite chemist products, but in the meantime, how much do you spend on makeup? What’s your routine? Do you wear it to work every day?

    I am celebrating a friend’s success this weekend and plan to visit the enchanting new flowers website floristsecrets.co.uk to check for Florist discount Codes and sales before I order!

  • SATCHELS OF GOLD

    Posted on 22/11/2014 by | 0 comments

    I’ve always admired the satchel style of handbag, and the classic lines and structure make satchels great bags to wear to the office. Lucky for me, satchels are everywhere these days. I love the gold hardware on these latest versions I’ve rounded up.

    Bonus: Did anyone recognize the Real Housewives reference in this post’s title?

  • Let’s Talk Nails

    Posted on 04/10/2014 by | 0 comments

    I don’t fuss much with nail polish. I never seem to have the time or inclination to get manicures, and I get frustrated that once I do my nails myself, they’ll chip or grow out within a week. Yes, maybe I’m just too lazy.

    I also find easier to just have clean, short nails for work. I gotta say, though, lately I’m into the new fall neutral nails trend. The beiges, greiges, greys, plums, slates, nudes.

    Lets Talk Nails

    So here’s what I’ve been coveting. I dig these looks and colours, but I’m also at a loss: Where’s the line for appropriate work nail polish colours? Are any okay? Just classic colours like red and nude, or can we go bolder with dark reds or the new neutrals?

    I really love the Chanel “Khaki Vert,” but I’m thinking that’s a no-go for work. What’s your usual rule for wearing nail polish to work? What colors would you never wear?

    And in other news, I had a great birthday weekend. Apparently, having a blog really helps with the birthday presents — my boyfriend got me a Kate Spade bag that was on my wishlist at lanalou style. I love it!

  • App for Foolproof Sunglass Shopping

    Posted on 01/10/2014 by | 0 comments

    Love to shop but can’t always find time to spare in pursuit of that perfect new pair of sunglasses?

    Fear not! I recently discovered that iPhone 4 has a new app that uses augmented reality to allow you to try on different styles of sunglasses without ever stepping into a store.

    I have spent many months shopping for a pair of sunglasses that suited my face. I wish I had known about this app before spending countless hours perusing the shelves of every Sunglasses shop in the area!

    Using eBay’s Fashion App in conjunction with the iPhone 4, you can utilize the front facing camera to interactively try on different styles of sunglasses. I must say, I was skeptical at first. I wondered if it would simply be a flat image with what looked like the equivalent of a paperdoll image with cut out glasses pasted on top of my face. On the contrary, the augmented reality allows you to move and you can see the glasses from different angles. Perfect for those of us who are too busy to go from store to store.

    I’m always in favor of new and easy ways to shop. Have you tried it? What did you think?
