Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bon Eyeshadow Palette & Hangover Primer

P1000826 too faced chocolate bon bon P1000833 P1000835 too faced hangover IMG_4477How beautiful is this Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons Eyeshadow Palette*? I've never had the chance to try a Too Faced eye-shadow palette before but I love how cute and creative they are, so I was so excited for this delivery to arrive! 
As soon as I opened this palette, the first thing I noticed was how it smelt like Chocolate, such a nice touch as well as the colours being everything you need in an eye-shadow palette.
This palette is a new online exclusive to Debenhams which launched on 15th December so would be the perfect Christmas gift for all those beauty lovers (and for those who have left their Christmas shopping to the last minute)! Don't forget to check out Debenhams Gift Guide if you're really stuck for gift ideas too! 
The packaging and quality of these eye-shadows are something I'd love to receive under the Christmas tree this year along with the Too Faced Hangover Face Primer*. I hold my hands up and say I do not always use a primer as I hate feeling as those I have layers upon layers of unnecessary products on my face but this primer is different! It's non-silicone based, is infused with Coconut water and skin revivers in a lightweight formula to give radiance to the skin. This felt amazing when I put it on and gave my skin a little boost of hydration before applying my foundation and making it apply better.
I created a look using, 'Mocha' all over the lid and a mixture of layering 'Bordeaux' (my favourite shade!) and 'Malted' in the crease and outer corners to create some definition. To add a little festive sparkle, I finished my patting in, 'Molasses Chip' all over the lid. I'm so impressed by the longevity of these shades, they lasted all night and all day - with no creases. 

Have you tried the Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons Eyeshadow Palette yet?

Be Boho Chic - 4 Things You Need

A perennial favourite amongst fashion girls is the bohemian chic style. For some, nailing the trend is easy. These girls’ closets are full of fringe, posy prints and psychedelic patterns, and they're mixed in with lace and other Western-style wear. Other women have a harder time mixing and matching the right fabrics and pieces to create this “effortless,” yet carefully constructed, look dubbed boho chic.
This post is for those fashionista—the ones who love gazing at Free People campaigns and lust after Vanessa Hudgens’ OOTDs on the regular, but only from afar. After all, creating a flawless boho chic style is much harder than it looks. A keen eye is needed to combine feathers and lace without looking like you came straight from frolicking in the fields (unless you want to look like that, which is cool too!). But all it takes is a little practice, constant inspiration and the right pieces to make bohemian chic your own reality. To get you started, here are four things you need:

1. Lots of Earthy Colours CAMEL OOTD
The colour palette is crucial in the world of bohemia. The Chic Fashionista gives a quickrundown of the essential tones, stating, “Typical boho colours are rich and warm in colour. So focus on black, brown, cream white, khaki and olive green as your main fashion colour palette.” Once you have this basis, you can then mix in vibrant violets and deep reds.
2. Something With FringeSUEDE & CAMELWhether it is a bag, booties, a vest or even a suede jacket, you need something with fringe. Fringe is a telltale feature of Western-style garb that will immediately transport your style to another era. Not to mention, it’s a fun detail that moves with you. You can browse a whole host of fringed booties in Lyst’s edit if you’re looking for a little inspiration to get you started.
3. Something With FlowersFLORAL MAXI OOTDJust like you need fringe, flowers are just as, if not more, important when dressing bohemian chic. Since much inspiration is drawn from the “flower child” of the ‘60s, it’s only right that you find some floral. If not a floral-printed pair of pants, slip on a flower crown like Fashion Gone Rogue mentions: “the flower crown has become ubiquitous with bohemian style.”
4. Chunky JewelleryBLUE PAISLEYTo put the cherry on top to any whimsical, bohemian wardrobe, you’ll need the right accessories to match. College Fashion suggests chunky, earthy jewellery as one of the “must-have items” for girls looking to go boho chic. Leave the shiny gold at home, because wood and metal materials work best here. Also, “the more unique the better,” so feel free to get a little funky with your picks.

Grey Rollneck Dress

GREY ROLLNECK DRESS GREY ROLLNECK DRESS GREY ROLLNECK DRESS GREY ROLLNECK DRESS GREY ROLLNECK DRESS GREY ROLLNECK DRESS GREY ROLLNECK DRESS GREY ROLLNECK DRESS GREY ROLLNECK DRESS
Rollneck Dress: Primark | Gilet: Oasis Fashion via Debenhams* | Boots: Red Herring via Debenhams* | Bag: Primark

My new obsession is over-sized roll neck jumpers, knits and dresses. I've been looking for a few roll neck dresses to add to my wardrobe as they're perfect for this time of the year being warm and you can just chuck them on with some tights and you're done. I found this jumper in Primark and bought it quite a few sizes up so it became dress length on me. I love the colour of this especially matching with this Oasis Gilet*. Luckily, its surprisingly mild for December weather so I can still get away with just wearing a gilet on top of this jumper and feel warm enough. 
To add a different tone, I paired this outfit with these Burgundy Leather Red Herring Boots*. I love that Debenhams have a range of Winter Boots and styles from different brands. I've seen Burgundy boots doing the rounds on blogs, Instagram and from endless hours of shopping online. This pair really caught my eye as the heel is just the right size for me to be able to wear this casually day to day and the colour goes with so much of Autumn/Winter wardrobe so I know these will be worn to death into the new year!

Khaki on Leather

KHAKI ON LEATHER OOTD KHAKI ON LEATHER OOTD KHAKI ON LEATHER OOTD KHAKI ON LEATHER OOTD KHAKI ON LEATHER OOTD KHAKI ON LEATHER OOTD KHAKI ON LEATHER OOTD
Jumper: H&M | Skirt: Missguided | Hat: New Look | Boots: Warehouse | Bag: Marc B* | Necklace: Happiness Boutique*

The awkward moment when you and your outfit blend into the background - what can I say I love Khaki at the moment and this jumper! I love the colour and the fact it's not overly thick as it's not too cold yet but it's also not exactly warm either. I've been searching for a perfect leather skirt for maybe a year and finally found the one on Missguided, it fits me perfectly and I think it makes even the most casual of looks look put together and classy. You can't really go wrong with a leather skirt!
A new recent addition are these Warehouse boots. These are exactly what I wanted! A mid-heel leather pointed boot with no Silver or Gold hardware. I'm not really a fan of boots with buckles and details anymore as I like to wear these with whatever outfit I want without worrying about if the hardware clashes with my jewellery. I've practically worn these everyday as I just think they look chic and classic with all outfits.
Adding a little accessories is this Happiness Boutique Geometric Drop Necklace. I love the style of dainty, layered necklaces and I don't have any in Gold so this was a lovely to pair with this Marc B 'Rita' Bag as it also has gold hardware. Everyone has complimented me on this bag. It's the perfect size, not too big or small and fits all you need. I love that this bag holds it shape and has a timeless feel about it so I know this won't ever go out of style!

ASOS SS16 Press Day

Say hello to a image heavy post! On Thursday I had the privilege of attending the ASOS SS16 Press Day and I was so excited. ASOS has been and still is one of my favourite places to shop as I feel they nail all the upcoming trends and styles and as well having free next day delivery and free returns which is a life saver of course!
I fell in love with so many pieces from their Spring/Summer 2016 Collection. The colour palette includes a lot of dusty pink, brights and neutrals which I wear all year round. The bags especially drew me in with the gorgeous embellishments, beading, suede and different textures. You can never have enough bags, right?
The Men's Collection I also loved with it's neutral base and warm colour palette, also very inspired with Kanye West himself! Not only this, next year sees the launch of ASOS's Bridal Collection, so keep an eye out brides-to-be when this makes it's launch.
Obviously my favourite part was eyeing up all the new shoes. Shoes are my biggest shopping weakness and I already know that I will be purchasing a few I saw at the Press Day. Particularly a few pairs of suede mules that will definitely be reaching my wardrobe just in time for Spring/Summer.
Is there anything that's caught your eye from the ASOS SS16 Press Day?

White Lattice

WHITE LATTICE OOTD WHITE LATTICE OOTD WHITE LATTICE OOTD WHITE LATTICE OOTD WHITE LATTICE OOTD
Dress: Boohoo* | Heels: Boohoo | Clutch Bag: Next

My final styling of this Boohoo dress is the simplest look and the smartest. This dress is so comfortable and light-weight so it would be perfect for a night out when you want an outfit you can just chuck on and not think about too much. Going with more of a formal, party look out of my three ways to style, I thought that the dress didn't need much other than a pair of heels and a statement clutch bag. This clutch bag is usually my first pick for a night-out outfit as it goes with practically anything I choose to wear and adds a bit more glamour to a look with it's reflective mirror effect. These Boohoo White block heels are also my go-to for any night out outfit purely for the fact that I love wearing white and these are so comfortable! I'd definitely recommend these, I need to get these in Black too!

Beige Faux Fur

BEIGE FAUX FUR BEIGE FAUX FUR BEIGE FAUX FUR BEIGE FAUX FUR BEIGE FAUX FUR
Dress: Boohoo* | Gilet: New Look | Bag: Boohoo* | Shoes: Primark | Hat: Primark

Back with my second way to style this Boohoo Dress! I'm loving neutral shades even in the colder months and recently started wearing my faux fur beige gilet that I bought from New Look last year. I love this, and need to get as much wear out of it as possible before it gets too cold not having anything on my arms! I love the mixing of textures with this look and the lattice detailing on the dress. The bag matches perfectly with the colours and the pop of white of the dress makes it stand out. I don't think you can beat Autumn for styling up outfits. Nothing looks better than mixing of layers to create a look that makes it seem as though you've put more effort into it than you have!

Khaki Hues

BOOHOO DRESS OOTD BOOHOO DRESS OOTD BOOHOO DRESS OOTD BOOHOO DRESS OOTD BOOHOO DRESS OOTD BOOHOO DRESS OOTD
Dress: Boohoo* | Duster Coat: Boohoo* | Bag: Boohoo* | Boots: Topshop | Hat: New Look | Sunglasses: Ray-Ban

So I have not blogged in so long and I have missed it! The last few weeks have been totally hectic and I just lost my blogging mojo. I would rather post something I'm proud of rather than post something for the sake of it and not be happy with it.
I'm coming back to you with three ways to style this Boohoo Dress*. I chose this White lattice detailed dress with bell sleeves as it really stood out to me as it's the type of dress you can wear in the daytime but also style up for evening. The wide bell sleeves also give it a boho feel which I love. 
I've been searching for a Khaki Duster Coat forever too, so thought for this look, the two would compliment each other well. I love Autumn for the fact that you can just get away with lighter layers, rather than cover up in a huge coat and conceal a beautiful outfit!
I accessorized this with this cute little Brown Bag which reminds me of the stunning Chloe bags but for a fraction of the price. I love this bag as it fits all I need and complements the whole Autumnal feel of this look.
