Botanicals + Butterflies

Right now I'm totally inspired by this incredible dress printed with hearts and butterflies from Givenchy's AW/14 show. To go along with the them I'm sharing some of my favourite products inspired by botanical gardens, roses butterflies.

1. Korres Wild Rose Compact Powder has a slight rose hint that brightens the skin and feels weightless and velvety smooth.
2. Rosabotanica Eau de Parfum by Balenciaga is one of my favourite scents, its fresh and feels like you are in an enchanted garden. {I promise this is not an old lady rose scent}
3. Black Rose Precious Face Oil by Sisley is pricey but is rich in omega 3 & 6 and makes your skin feel like velvet.
4. Charlotte Tilbury Kissing Stoned Rose Lipstick is the perfect nude pinky shade that is perfect for most complexions, and is my go to colour for everyday.

3 Fashion Faux PasTo Avoid

Wearing head to toe designer duds attitude. Style is not about the labels you wear but more how you put items together and having your own ideas on styling. Mixing high and low labels is a good palette to work with.

Over accessorizing - unless you're a fashion editor, stylist etc at fashion week , in the normal day to day lives of most of us overloading on accessories can look a little tacky, so go with less is more.

If you can't walk in the shoe then don't wear it. The countless times Ive seen a women wearing either sky high heels or just plain uncomfortable shoes is just painful. So in order not to embarrass yourself wear shoes that fit and you can walk in.

Vamp Lippy

Loving a vampy lip right now, especially with a very minimal eye and clean and fresh face.

Get the look:
Tom Ford Bruised Plum
Chanel Rouge Allure in Rouge Noir
Laura Mercier Rouge Nouveau in Sin
Nars Audacious Lipstick in Charlotte
Kat Von D Studded Lipstick in Vampira
YSL Rouge Volupte Shine in Violet Incognito
Buxom Full Bodied Lipstick in Menace

3 Steps to a better lip:

1. Foundation is the first step in making it last. Just like eye shadow, lipstick has better staying power when its applied on top of a base. Prep your lips for color by very lightly coating them with concealer or foundation—or a primer made specifically for lipstick.

2. Exfoliate your lips before you apply that lip color. Just like the rest of your body, you need to exfoliate your lips of dead skin cells. Smoother and softer lips will create the perfect canvas for bright color—and there are a variety of multitasking products and scrubs to chose from on the market.

3. Lipliner should be used to keep lipstick from bleeding. The only thing worse than getting red lipstick on your teeth (and not knowing about it), is having it swiped across your face. Lining your lips with a similar color will not only help keep the pigment in the correct spot, but also can make your lips appear fuller and increase the staying-power of a tube of lipstick. Apply it in thin steady strokes around the perimeter and then continue to use the pencil to fill in your lips before applying your actual lip color.

Thursdays Thoughts = Anna Wintour's Unapologetic Quotes

What people hate the most is indecision. Even if I’m completely unsure, I’ll pretend I know exactly what I’m talking about and make a decision.

On the whole, people who say demeaning things about our world, I think it’s because they feel in some way excluded, or not part of the “cool group.

Create your own style. Let it be unique for yourself and yet identifiable for others.

I worked for Harper’s Bazaar. They fired me. I recommend that you all get fired; it’s a great learning experience.

People respond well to those that are sure of what they want.

I’m very driven by what I do. I am certainly very competitive. I like people who represent the best at what they do. If that turns you into a perfectionist then maybe I am.

In the end I do respond to my own instincts. Sometimes they’re successful, and obviously sometimes they’re not.

I surround myself with a talented group of people that are opinionated and interesting. I try to remain very open to what others have to say.

It’s all about timing. If it’s too soon, no one understands. If it’s too late, everyone’s forgotten.

You can’t really worry too much about what the competition is doing or what other people in your field are doing. It has to be a true vision.

I’m very good at delegating. People work much better when they have a real sense of responsibility. But at the same time, I don’t like surprises.

Fashion goes in only one direction – forward – and I am a firm believer in thinking that way too.

I never think of myself as a powerful person.
