WINTER WARMERS

have been wrapped up in bed all weekend with the cold! I figured a small winter warmers wish list post would be beneficial, especially at this time of the year when we need to start layering up for the winter. I have been looking at lot's of capes and blanket scarf's as of late, and really like how easy they are to en-corporate into every day style, and off course evening wear for those long chilly nights ahead. 




You might have already noticed that most of the items on my wish list are from ASOS, I always find myself browsing the website when I am bored and save everything I like into my saved items, and it always piles up to the point I can't bear to even look at it anymore, ha,ha!! I always go through everything and mentally ask myself, do I really need this? 

Some of these pieces are winter essentials and I always like a good pair of leather gloves to keep me warm, I have a couple of basic gloves that are easily washable for everyday wear, but I do find leather/suede gloves more appealing for evening wear and they look very luxurious too. Another thing that has recently caught my attention are these "Swing Earrings" very popular in the US at the moment but they go by a different name, this however has slipped my mind, but in the UK they are "Swing Earrings or Ear Cuffs" they make the perfect accessory for pierced ears and swing around the back to show different designs at the front. You can get a large variety of pearl, crystal and ball studs but most of the crystal ones are currently out of stock at ASOS, Boo! :( I noticed Zara are selling a similar pair here, but hopefully other brands get these stocked soon as they look super chic. 

Blanket scarf's are always a life saver, more so on frosty windy days to cover your face and body to keep you super snug! I love this one from ASOS and it comes in a soft fluffy fabric. I also really need a "Camel Coat" and looking for that perfect piece to add to my winter coats! However they are pretty hard to come across and I have my eye set on two from Missguided and French Connection with a massive price difference, but I might wait it out for the sales and see which I prefer! Away from clothing and onto something I love for winter and that's candles, Yankee candles always smell divine and the scent lasts ages after burning! I recently went into my local Yankee store and noticed "Candy Cane Lane" the smell is incredible and smells like candy canes with a mixture of mint and candy combined together. Very uplifting and perfect for any sweet tooth this Christmas! I actually just bought myself one from Amazon as they are hugely discounted! :D can't wait to burn this baby! x


*This post was much longer than expected and make sure to enter my current Chi Chi Dress Giveaway and I will also be introducing my yearly Christmas Giveaway during the first week of December so keep your eyes peeled for that :) Hopefully I feel better tomorrow, and I will get replying to all the lovely comments left on my blog since Friday evening and catch up on everything soon. 

P.S Black Friday sales start this week! So excited!! :DD

SLEEK EAU LA LA LINER

This isn't the typical shade I would normally go for as I like to stick to basic blacks for a smokey eye, but this shade really is pretty and makes for a good neutral shade if you want to keep your eye make-up simple and natural. 


Shade aside I will definitely be getting my hands on the same eyeliner in Noir! I like how creamy the formula is and this in return makes it a dream to apply and even easier to remove. This eyeliner is surprisingly very pigmented and the colour lasts hours, however I would not apply this to the waterline as it's not creamy/soft enough, and I find the colour pay off much better when applied to the upper lash line. 

The formula doesn't tug or pull the skin when applying, and I have experienced this problem numerous of times with some pencil eyeliners, especially from The Body Shop range. The Eau La La eyeliners are water and smudge proof, making them perfect for winter! I don't find the eyeliner fades over time and stays in place all day with it looking just as fresh as when I first applied the eyeliner. I think this makes a great everyday eyeliner and does the job, even better for the price and it's definitely a must have, and I can't wait to try it in shade noir

Have you tried the Sleek Eyeliners yet?

PAISLEY

Following on with another style post and this one actually features a piece I was sent from Lavish Alice, as part of their "Style Off Competition". I was super excited to see what the mystery item was they sent out to be styled, and loved the unique detailing on these paisley embroidered shorts I received.

Shorts: Lavish Alice c/o | Shirt: South (Similar) | Jacket: Y.A.S (Similar) | Shoes: Chi Chi c/o | Necklace: Orelia c/o

At first I was worried how on earth I was going to style these, purely because the weather has been so miserable and dull here the past few weeks, but luckily it started to clear up by the end of last week. I figured these would look great for drinks or a dinner date paired with sky high heels and a classic black shirtI really like how the shorts come with pretty paisley embroidered detailing in a smart tailored fit, they are very fitting around the waist and legs to flatter the body, and look incredible paired with black heelsI also like the fact they're not too short, making them great for A/W paired with tights or worn alone. 

You might have noticed these heels in my last style post here, from Chi Chi Clothing and they are so chic with the cut out detailing to the sides for a unique twist on the classic court heelI finished the outfit off with my favourite gold zip shirt and really like the detailing and fabric used for this shirt, its slightly loose fitted with two large zip pockets to the front for decoration. The fabric feels light and looks crisp almost like a matte black satin fabric, which feels so luxurious against the skin and it also looks expensive, but it's not really! ;) For added warmth I knew this leather jacket would look perfect and add character to the outfit for evening with the ribbed detailing to the shoulders.
