Moscow Fashion Week

So I know this is a little late now as the event actually took place a few weeks ago now, but I just thought I would share with you some photos. My brothers girlfriend, Arina, is Russian and is currently studying to be an English and French translator. During the Moscow Fashion Week she managed to get a job working backstage translating for some designers. She managed to get some beautiful photographs of the shows and some cheeky backstage snaps. I am so jealous, it looks like she had an amazing time. She has invited me to come to next years shows, now that is an offer I cant refuse!

Looks like heaven!

Mac giveaway winnings

A couple of weeks ago I won Christine's from Starry Eyed Beauty (http://belges.blogspot.com) giveaway. The prize was a Mac lipstick of my choice and a Mac eyeshadow of my choice! Great prize! I chose the lipstick in 'blankety' and the eyeshadow in 'gleam'. My stuff arrived last week but I've only just got home so only got to see them today! Both colours are gorgeous so I am really happy with my choices.



You cant see too clearly from these photos but the eyeshadow is a pinky gold colour. I always seem to buy brown eyeshadows so it was nice to have something a little bit different.





The lipstick is a nude colour although it looks quite dark on me because I have quite pale pink lips, however when my mum tried it on it looked really pale on her! Crazy! Here are the two colours on my hand, I took some pictures of them on me but the photos came out horribly!

So a huge thank you to Christine for my products, I am so grateful! And Happy Easter to everyone, hope you have a lovely weekend! :)

I Went Shopping Again...

Although I am meant to be saving for my Europe travels this summer (more on that another time) I can't resist but to do a bit of shopping with all of these gorgeous summer clothes in the shops at the moment. Without intention I seemed to have been drawn towards dresses and bought a grand total of 4 in the last 2 weeks! Although I must add that they were all very cheap so I have still been very good with my savings! 

Also just FYI in case you didn't know, River Island have got 50% off their sale stuff at the moment and they have got a few nice things in there so definitely worth a look, its soooo cheap!

Dress- River Island, reduced from £45 to £7.50!!!

Dress-River Island, reduced from £27 to £7.50

Dress- Primark, £15

Dress-New Look, £15

Shoes- Primark, £14

Work, Work, Work

So I have finally completed and handed in my brand book after much chopping and changing and blood, sweat and tears (well no blood and not so many tears but maybe a little sweat- I like to be dramatic!) My book was on the brand Neal's Yard Remedies and I must say I kind of enjoyed doing it. I love doing projects on a specific brand because you really get an insight into them and feel like you know everything about them.

Now that I have got that project out of the way its time to move on to my next big assignment- writing a report for a brand to launch into the U.S market. We were given a choice of about 6 or 7 brands to choose from and I still don't know which one to do! I have cut them down to 2 - Bravissimo and Whistles. Any ideas on which one I should do, completely stuck on making a decision!

Bikini Time

I know that anyone living in the UK right now is  probably sick of everyone mentioning the weather and how sunny it is, as it seems to be the only topic of everyones facebook status at the moment, but anyway, I dont care, isn't this weather AMAZING!! :) I have spent most of the last few days catching some rays on the trampoline in my garden and catching up on some 'homework' (vogue). However I am still as pasty as ever, I just cant tan, its not fair.

Anyways, all this sunshine has gone to my head and I find myself window shopping for a new bikini for the summer. There are some beautiful bikinis around this season and I cant wait to make my first purchase. I always get so excited when I see all the swimwear coming into stock, although it does also fill me with dread to know that soon I will have to wear this tiny piece of material in public, the bikini diet must start! Here are a few of my favourite, now just to decide which one (or two) to buy!

Topshop

River Island

ASOS

Ted Baker

Accessorize

French Connection
It does annoy me how most places sell tops and bottoms separately nowadays. Not many people are just gonna buy the top or just the bottom, seems very silly! Anyway rant over, enjoy the sun everyone!! :)

7 Things about myself:

  • I have a weird obsession with eyebrows. I think a great eyebrow shape can make you look amazing and really envy people with big defined brows
  • I love musical theatre and enjoy nothing more than going to the theatre. I also love to dance and sometimes sing (in the privacy of my own home)
  • I am addicted to chocolate, and cheese... and hash browns... basically I just love food
  • I have caught the travelling bug and want to go everywhere. I have been lucky enough to travel to quite a few places but that has just made me want to see more of the world.
  • I have the most amazing family and friends in the world!
  • I have a phobia of balloons popping
  • My idol is Johnathan Creek and I used to want to be him when I was younger. If my fashion career fails I want to be a detective! :)

Night out outfits from last week

I keep meaning to do some outfit posts but never seem to get round to actually doing it, mainly for 2 reasons. Firstly I find it very cringey taking photos of myself, don't know why but I just do. And secondly I just don't know how to do it! I cant seem to find the right location, or the right lighting in my room, and I can never seem to get my whole outfit in my webcam. Such dramas! However I started to take a few of the outfits I wore for nights out last week. These photos are very amateur and generally terrible so please bear with me while I get to grips with it.. but oh well, you get the idea!

Playsuit- 202, Waistcoat- a shop in Australia (sorry cant remember the name!) necklace- Topshop


Top and Skirt- H&M 

Dress- Topshop, Belt- Primark
