Kit faves!

Some of my current kit faves...

If you want to achieve super shiny hair you need this finishing spray in your life, my No.1 for shine!



Micellar waters have been popular for cleansing in recent years and these new one's by L'oréal come in nice big bottles to suit different skin types, a big thumbs up from me.



I love this hairspray! It smells good, achieves long-lasting hold without clogging hair and finishes with a nice shine to boot.  I like the handy 1.5 oz handbag size too : )



In love with Nars blushers at the moment. Shade 'Orgasm' has always been a favourite but both 'Deep throat' and 'Desire' are great for creating a fresh pink flush.  Shade 'Nico' is a stunning highlighter I use it in combination with these pinks to achieve a gorgeous glow.



I love Kiko lip products in general for packaging, price, longevity, colour choice the list goes on ... This 3D Hydra lipgloss in shade '04' creates a stunning glossy full lip.  I have been applying it over all different lip shades and it always looks amazing.

February Update!

I spent the beginning of the month on a break in Yorkshire, my first visit and I fell in love with Yorkshire's natural beauty.  Celebrating my hubbie's birthday we visited Wensleydale for Cheese https://www.wensleydale.co.uk and the Black sheep Brewery for Ale! https://www.blacksheepbrewery.com









We also visited http://saltsmill.org.uk a great space for all things art and especially good if you are a fan of David Hockney's work.  I also visited his new exhibition at http://www.tate.org.uk/visit/tate-britain this month which is just fabulous you must go if you can! I am a little obsessed with him at the moment, currently reading his biography too.







Whilst in Harrogate we had to do afternoon tea at https://www.bettys.co.uk
Literally everyone we had told we were visiting Harrogate too said "you must go to Betty's" and it certainly didn't disappoint!


I saw these old vintage beauty tools in a shop window and justhad to take a snap!



A busy month for wedding trials ahead of spring/summer weddings, lots of last minute March weddings booked as well.

We also spent some time in London this month and finally visited the shard, the views were spectacular.

Be Inspired - Pantone Colour of the Year 2017 'Greenery'

Spring is just around the corner... hopefully!

What better way to put a spring into our step during gloomy January than with an inspired fresh start to the New Year.

The Pantone Colour of 2017 is shade 'Greenery', let this 'nature inspired' colour give you inspiration to style anything from your home to your clothing.



Style your home:
Accessorise with accents of green including cushions, throws, vases and ornaments.











Style your Wedding:
Hair crowns, flowers and bouquets can all look stunning in shades of green.
Go bold and choose green shoes, jewellery or even bridesmaids dresses.













Fashion Styling:
The spring summer shows had many versatile green looks, if you aren't feeling that brave why not opt for a green belt or handbag instead.









Inspire your beauty regime:
Green shadows look great on brown eyes and pretty good on blue eyes too for that matter, it makes a gorgeous contrast so will make your eyes really stand out. Be bold with eyeshadow or go subtle with a little green liner.  If green makeup really is too much for you why not brighten your day with a green nail polish.
