Ted & Muffy Event

I was recently invited to Ted & Muffy a boutique designer boot store in Bath, their mission to make you look and feel amazing. Their boots are designed to your calf & width measurements, meaning you don't have to settle as they say 'for anything less than perfection' 

I attended the event with fellow Cardiff / Bristol / Bath Bloggers, and above I'm pictured with Tara @Englishian , Clair @AllAboutClair_ and Amy @fourcatsplusus who are all absolutely lovely! Clair had me in stitches for most of the evening, whether it was our shared clumsiness or our indecisive choice of boots. Together we opted for the Althea, Clair went for the Dove Grey & I choose the Black Suede. I of course will feature these in a post soon. I've been wearing them non-stop, and have had so many compliments. I even had a lady chase me of the train asking for me to write down the details... 

I was completely torn between the Althea as I own nothing like them but also the Nightshade ankle boots in again the Black Suede, they are still on my wishlist as they were so comfy but with a little height. A girl can not own enough pairs of ankle boots. 

The evening was wonderful, it involved lots of chatting, a little bit of fizz and of course drooling over some incredibly beautiful boots. We were each assigned our own personal fairytale fitter who helped us choose the boot best suited to us. Everyone was so helpful and lovely, I had such a wonderful evening, and of course can't thank Ted & Muffy enough for their generosity. 

I can't wait for next season as they have absolutely kicked A/W 15

Christmas 2015 Wishlist

I absolutely LOVE Christmas, and can't wait to start my Christmas shopping. But whilst present buying I do tend to stumble across a few items I wouldn't mind Father Christmas delivering under my Christmas tree. As you can see a lot of the above is make up/ beauty related. I'm a beauty fan, some may even say an addict. But I live, breathe, drink anything make up related, and the above are just a few things I'm lusting over. Nars, Chanel, Charlotte Tilbury to name a few. The rest are items I particularly like, you'll normally find me in a checked shirt on my day off, and I've been looking for a small black handbag for ages. I think Fleur de force featured the Zara messenger bag in a recent video. I attended an event at Ted & Muffy (Bath) recently and was torn between over the knee boots and my forever love of these Nightshade Ankle boots. I still dream about these boots everyday. And then finally on my wish list is the Bobbi Brown Make Up Case, I absolutely love this! And may have to purchase this as a gift to myself. But we will see. 

What are you hoping for this Christmas? Are you spending it with Family or Friends?

SS16 Beauty Roundup - It's all about the colours. Whether you're wearing it on the eyes, under the eyes or on the lips. SS16 make up is about the statement, and I love it! The skin is as always flawless, but now with the influence of strobing it's all about the dewy, fresh flawless skin. I've noticed that the cheeks take a back seat so I recommend opting for a subtle peachy colour. Brows are natural but defined, and of course brushed up for natural lift to the face. Then this is the fun part, you either go lips or eyes. Lips are deep ox blood tones if paired with a natural eye. If you're opting for a bright pop of colour (hello blue) then opt for a nude lip. The eyes are fun in SS16 with colour concentrated under the lower lash line for a pop of intensity. Make it wearable by opting for soft yellow tones, or make a statement with turquoise or coral. 

What are your thoughts on SS16?

Birthday Wishlist 2015

So here's my little birthday wishlist, I can't believe my birthday is so soon, and that a year has already passed.

1. Real techniques Bold Metals collection is absolutely gorgeous, if I could have one of each that would be great? 
2. Chanel Les Beiges #20 this is my favourite setting powder, and who doesn't love a Chanel compact. 
3. Escentric Molecules is one of my favourite fragrances, and it is such good value for money. 
4. Topshop dress, I thought this dress would be super cute for summer, styled with converses / sandals. 
5. Bobbi's Browns Palette is the perfect quad of colours, and even better they are my favourite shades from Bobbi. 
6. Muji storage, just because my collection is ever expanding. 
7. Deep Sleep Pillow Talk, because we all need our beauty sleep. 
8. Chanel Eau Tendre, again another firm fragrance favourite. 
9. Warehouse Dress, how cute is this dress? I have two weddings in the Summer, and this dress looks perfect!

Review - Hyalual WOW Mask

Skincare is definitely something that interests me and I absolutely love trying new products and learning about different brands in particular learning about how different ingredients can affect the skin. 

Recently I was given the opportunity to try a Hyalual WOW Mask (link) rrp. £99.99 for 5. 

My skin suffers from irritation and is normally quite dehydrated so I was excited to try a product that claims to give 200% more hydration than other collagen-based moisturising and provides deep skin hydration. 

After cleansing my skin I began to take the mask out of the packet, I'm used to standard cream based masks and have previously used sheet masks (Shu Uemura being a firm favourite) so I found the application of this particular mask to be slightly tricky. I guess because I wasn't used to a gel based mask. But once it was on, it took less than a minute to settle in place and I was able to relax for around 30 minutes (they recommend a max. of 40 mins) The only side note I can make is that I have a relatively small face and found the mask to be quite large in comparison (I guess that's great if you have a slightly larger head, but did mean I had to fold the mask around the edges) 

After half an hour I really didn't want to take the mask off, my skin felt so comfortable and hydrated. A feeling when you suffer from dehydration is rare. I was excited to see the results, unlike a conventional mask it was easy to remove, and dispose of. Sometimes I get so frustrated attempting to remove a mask I avoid doing them, but I found the WOW mask to be simple. 

Once removed my skin felt great! Really hydrated, blemishes & redness seemed to have calmed down, and my face felt super smooth. I was really impressed with the results. 

I would say this mask would be perfect for women / men who are concerned with ageing, as it certainly helps to plump and smooth any fine dry lines in the skin. I can imagine if used regularly would really benefit the skin. Of course the price tag is steep, and in comparison to others I have tried I feel I had similar instant results. It may be that this particular mask is great for the long term benefits. I would definitely love to use these masks again, because they really do feel luxurious. 

Have you tried WOW Masks before? What are you favourite face masks?
