A Visit To The Vogue 100: Century Of Style Exhibit

sss I am someone that doesn’t always abide by the rules; and by that I don’t mean any ground-breaking criminal activity. One being trying to take a photo when it says “no photography allowed.” For once I understood the rule. Why ruin this exhibition for anyone? Why should I ruin the hard work of six years curating the exhibition and the 100 years of Vogue itself?

All I can do is simply recommend to high heavens for you to see this exhibit.

Enough about my guilt ridden tendencies…

This exhibition should be devoured by all. Whether you think fashion is somewhat a mimsy subjective thing and you are oblivious to the fact fashion and filters an element of your day. Otherwise, you may be like myself grace the floors that fashion provides us with daily. You will leave there feeling inspired, enlightened and awakened.

One thought I had when I left the exhibition was…What potential does Vogue have over the next 100 years? It is truly remarkable how they have set the standard and influenced cultural trends and lets face it they set the bar for the “cover girl”. Continue reading

These Are A Few Of My Favourite Things #5

acWhat feels like only a few days since the turn of the new year, we are now greeted with a new month. My mind cannot comprehend with the idea of the first month of 2016 being over…

The month of mantras and resolutions, and for once I have actually stuck to mine. Maybe.. it’s the age of maturity, have I finally blossomed into a mature woman? I use the word blossom, my parents favour the idea of me being abducted by aliens.

I have managed to read some books this month, discovering new loves – or you could say binging on certain series on Netflix and Amazon Prime. I have also hit the January sales HARD this month. A spending ban is definitely in order this February.

2015 Make – Up Favourites

IMG_0377.jpg

Let’s rewind to January 2015. I was quite the make – up… well beauty novice. Prime example being that I used a matte foundation when I have dry skin.

I didn’t use products that would help warm my face and give it that extra umph. It’s so bizarre looking back over the year, I cannot think about commencing with my routine without a highlighter or primer.

I often got told “You look tired” or “Are you ill?” – No, unfortunately I wasn’t aware of what products emphasize my features and qualities.

Let’s get the ball rollin’ and discuss my make-up favourites of 2015.

IMG_0144

2015 was the year of discovering highlighters (and no, not the neon based utensil for school and college). Yes, it’s the year I turned 20, I am slowly yet surely becoming a master at what products my skin needs. Prime example of my lack of knowledge being; at the start of the year I was using a matte foundation and powder everyday… and guess what, I have dry skin. BIG NO NO!

After switching my make-up routine and opting for a more sheer and dewy finish, I found myself receiving more comments on how great my skin looks. I was one of them people that people used to go “You look so ill” and there would be nothing wrong with me. Now I know it was the wrong make-up products.

So Ladies and Gentlemen as we all know a lot can change in a year and I’m not just talking about the weather, I now have an obsession with glowing skin. My Top 5 favourite products are: Continue reading

These Are A Few Of My Favourite Things #4

abcdA post dedicated to my loves of fashion, music , London and whatever else takes my fancy.

Oh my, oh my, oh my! I swear every favourites post has started with some summary of how quick the month has gone. It’s true though, only one favourites post after this and it will be 2016….. CRAZY!

October was the month where I added more A/W winter pieces into my wardrobe, this led to many more shopping breaks, rather than lunch breaks on Oxford Street, deadly for my bank balance! If you checked out my recent ootd you would know I have been loving these bronze metallic loafers. Continue reading

These Are A Few Of My Favourite Things #2

IMG_8876 copyI confess… When it comes to dedicating myself to write about my monthly favourites you could say I have become a bit of a commitment phobe. I believe it’s still expectable to create this post, as it’s not even half way through the month ! However, soon with a blink of an eye it will be October so I better get cracking on.

I’m quite the indecisive person, which could some up also how vast and eclectic my favourites are with beauty, fashion, music and whatever else falls onto this page. Continue reading
