Sporty Spice

Dress: Wal G
T-Shirt: Primark
Shoes: Max Star

It's rare that I would choose to wear trainers with a dress, but this dress just screamed 'dress me down' when I tried it on. The block colour design leaves it open to any kind of accessorising so I decided to wear a clashing printed tee underneath and some statement chunky trainers to complete the 'Sporty Spice' look. 
A little bit away from my comfort zone, this outfit proved to be ideal for a weekend stroll around my local town... it's kins of comfy casual at it's best. With the added top knot because I couldn't be bothered to wash my hair, I added a bright red lip to the look just to jazz it up a little.

The best thing is how versatile this dress is when it comes to styling... I'm planning on wearing it dressed up for the races with a baby blue blazer in a couple of weeks too!

How To Style A Kimono #3

Shirt: New Look
Jeans: Mango
Necklace: Primark
Boots: Topshop

You may have seen my first blog post wearing this kimono a few weeks ago (here) and my second look (here) where I told you about my challenge to style this up three different ways. This is the third look that I have styled, and here I have gone for a more daytime/smart outfit.

I have gone for an all black base for the outfit again, but if you know me at all you will know I do love black and grey so this is a very true to life outfit for me.
The buttoned up shirt, skinny jeans and statement necklace are simple and chic, while the kimono adds a 'pop of colour' and a bit of fun to the look.
I'm really enjoying layering of sleeve lengths lately too... is that weird?! I think it looks quite edgy and cool!

Let me know which look you like best!

Pixi Eye Bright Primer

As a sufferer with oily eyelids whenever I want to wear eye makeup a primer is a must and there is only one product that really does the trick for me. Pixi's Eye Bright Primer is the one I reach for every time as I know it will guarantee me long lasting eye shadow for the entire day.

It is a nude/flesh coloured cream which dispenses from an angled sponge applicator - which makes it really quick and simple to apply, the tip fits around and into the socket of the eye and blends gently as you go. The slightly tinted product conceals the eye lids so you have the perfect, flawless base to apply makeup onto and it also brightens the eye area because of a light reflecting ingredient - when I'm extra tired I sometimes just wear this on it's own!
It has a matte, almost suede like finish which is very light on the eyes and dries really quickly, so there's no waiting around when you're trying to get ready... by the time you've finished priming the second eye, the first is ready for eyeshadow.
I've used cream and powder eyeshadows on top of this and liquid, gel and pencil eyeliners, and none have ever creased, smudged or faded, without primer my eye makeup is usually gone within an hour or so, which proves how great this really is.

An extra plus of this is that it is fragrance free and hypoallergenic, so if you're anything like me with terribly sensitive eyes, you should be okay with this one.
