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.

November Update!

My husband and I visited Madrid over halloween and into the beginning of November.
We stayed on Gran Via the main shopping street and stayed at The VincciMint hotel http://en.vinccithemint.com which we highly recommend. We enjoyed exploring the city visiting various art galleries and shops, bars and restaurants as you do...I am not going to lie it was a pretty exhausting trip!

Plaza Mayor



Primark on Five Floors!



Retiro Park



Royal Palace of Madrid



My favourite painting of the trip by Artist Robert Delauney, Thyssen Museum.



I couldn't resist this cute little makeup shop!







The highlight of our trip was dinner at the fabulous La Candelo Resto http://www.lacandelaresto.com If you are ever in Madrid you should definitely make a special evening here.  You will be completely "wowed" with the creative food combinations, it was a culinary experience!











Some of the stunning clients I have had the pleasure of doing hair and/or makeup for during November.
