My love affair with Chanel

I’ve always adored Chanel, there’s something just so classically chic about this heritage brand, something that screams elegance and style. It’s not just the clothes, the opulence spreads through the entire brand whether you’re looking at shoes, bags, sunglasses or even perfume. I’ve admired Chanel from a far for years and am still waiting for the day where I’ll have enough money to walk into Selfridges and pick myself up a 2.55 classic quilted bag – I get excited just thinking about it.

Benefit They’re Real Mascara Review

For me the search for the perfect mascara has been a life long journey, as a fair skinned girl I suffer with blonde eyelashes which also happen to be short and straight.

Brightly coloured hair – to dye for or not?

Over the last year there have been several coloured hair trends with 2012 seeing lots of pale pinks and purples and then the more natural colours done in an ombre fashion over Winter and now it seems pretty much anything goes. I have had most ‘natural’ colours in my hair ranging from white blonde all the way through to black – since then I have grown out my actual natural colour which is a dark blonde shade but have never really experimented with other colours. So I thought I’d do a blog to see what you all think – brightly coloured hair – to dye for or not?
