POPPY LUX

Finally I managed to get my new Ray-Ban Clubmaster sunglasses out the case for a spin. Lucky for me the sun was shining all day, which rarely happens at this time of year! 

Top: Poppy Lux c/o | Boots: Daniel Footwear | Jeans: ASOS c/o | Suede Jacket: AllSaints 
 Lipstick: Nars in Jeanne | Sunglasses: Ray-Ban

My first pair of Ray Bans where the classic 'New Wayfarers' with a slightly smaller frame to the originals, and I find these suit me great, but when it turned to trying the 'Clubmasters' a good six months later, these are definitely the ones! I say the ones, because these just suit my face shape perfectly. They really stand out with the black tinted lens and thick black frames, they just add a certain something to every outfit and really bring it together. I just wish I picked these up in the first place, and can't wait to wear them more in the summer!

  I was lucky enough to grab this gorgeous suede AllSaints Biker Jacket in the sales with an extra 20% OFF on top! I also picked up a blazer, and just love the quality of these garments. I will definitely be investing in more pieces like these as they will most definitely last the test of time, and I can see myself wearing them constantly once the weather picks up for Spring/Summer. I had to size down in the jacket and blazer to a size 6, and feel this is the normal for me now when shopping for jackets and coats, where as tops I would size up depending on the brand to a size 8 or 10. 

The Poppy Lux Sarai Tee Top really is something, and I have totally fallen for the beautiful pattern and the quality of the fabric! Such a nice structured piece that really amps up your everyday style with the boxy fit, and it looks great against the all black attire, and really stands out. I don't normally do prints but I have featured a couple of pieces on my blog over the year, but normally stick to block colours, but I am definitely wanting to play around more with prints and colours this year, and move away from the 'all black' outfits.

SLEEK DANCING TIL DUSK PALETTE

This is a beautiful everyday palette packed full of neutrals and a large pretty pink shimmer blush; perfect for blending and creating subtle daytime looks, but you can also take this palette to night or mix with other shadows. 

Sleek MakeUP: Dancing Til Dusk Eye and Cheek Palette c/o

It comes in the usual matte packaging with magnetic closure and cheek brush, also included in this palette is a sponge eye applicator (but I don't use this much, and stick to my usual Real Technique eye brushes). There are two blushes; Mirrored Pink (pink with Silver shimmer) and Sahara (a matte orange that reminds me of the desert, with the pretty deep sand shade). Sahara is one of those shades just like 'Antique' that I also use as a bronzer, as the shades can easily be used both ways and still look natural.

From the eyeshadows we have Cappuccino (beige/tape matte), Mineral Earth (cool-toned brown shimmer), Taupe (champagne shimmer) and Regal (cool-toned purple/brown matte) all from the 'Au Natural Palette'. The colour pay off really is impressive and just like other sleek products I always love how pigmented they are and how long lasting they can be once applied. You can view my recent review of the 'Midnight Palette' here, they make for great palettes if your a sleek beginner or want to trial run the products, before committing to a particular shade.

What's your thoughts on these palettes? Have you tried them?

TWENTY TWO

So, Krystel Couture has reached the two year milestone this month! Not only this, but yesterday I turned twenty two! Ahhh where does time go?!  My blog has opened up so many doors for me since I first started out back in 2013, I have experienced some incredible opportunities, and back in June I traveled to London for the Company 2014 Blogger Awards after being nominated under 'Best Blog Design' which was surreal!! I really want my blog to grow more this year and work harder on my photography and content. 


I have met so much incredible people on this journey, and found so much inspiration since starting out, and this has really made me grow as a person and developed my style and view on things. My blogging year has been beyond anything I could have ever expected. I am incredibly proud of the work I've put into my blog and the amount of hours per day/week I put into writing up posts and trying different photography techniques .. Hopefully 2015 will bring more exciting/amazing opportunities in my life and my blog, I love growing as a person and learning so much from you all and always love the sweet comments you leave, it just makes my day :') 

I am so happy with the way my blog/personal space has evolved and look forward to bringing more exciting things this year to share with you all :-) Having a birthday so soon after Christmas can be daunting, but it's always something I look forward to, especially when it involves cake ;-) I am now eagerly awaiting the delivery of my cake from the bakery, but me being me I ordered it to late for it to be ready in time for my actual birthday, so I will be collecting it tomorrow alongside food and maybe a little drink or two to celebrate Twenty Two years on this earth :D 

I have been a little inconsistent this week with blog posts and just thought I'd take a little step back over my birthday to relax, and I will now be posting every second morning around 7-8.am, as my sleeping routine has now changed as part of my New Year's Resolutions so I can fit more things in during the day, including my new workout routine :-) trying to start a healthier lifestyle with more sleep and a good routine. I say every second day because I have decided to stop posting everyday, purely because I was finding it difficult to reply to everyone and do other tasks throughout my day, so for now I will be back posting 3-4 times a week instead.

QANTAS

I've been dying to get this outfit up, and feel it's perfect for the colder weather! Polo necks are my number one go to when it's chilly outside and find them perfect for wearing alone or layering with. This outfit has been put together as part of the Qantas Fashion Project, and what I would wear on my flight to Melbourne Australia

Cape Blazer: Style Moi c/o | Jeans: ASOS c/o | Boots: G-Star Raw | Vest: ASOS | Bag: Love Moschino | Polo Neck: Marks and Spencer | Lipstick: Nars Annabella c/o

When traveling, comfort comes first and I figured since it's so cold here it's best to layer up and have a vest on underneath for when it gets warm. The cape blazer comes in perfect for layering with, and the fabric is great for keeping you cool and warm depending on the temperature outside. I always love a good blazer and feel it brings an outfit together very nicely with the chic tailoring! 

Ripped jeans are always a great option for off duty cool, and I find these the perfect pair for traveling with for comfort and style. They really make the outfit stand out, but still keep it relaxed with the torn element and keep the outfit lively. Again I just love these boots they're so versatile and come in perfect with the large heel, yet they're so comfortable with the incredible suede/leather mix.
