I thought I would share a different kind of post with you today. For me, everyday begins with a three step process so I though I would do a little get ready with me post to show you what I do. Of course there’s the outfit and the make up, but possibly one of the most important steps is the first one, preparation. get ready with me | Step One Prepering the skin for make up is super important for me. As you know by now I’m a huge fan of the Clinique pep-start under eye cream – total life saver. This is a step that I never skip but something I do less regularly is a polishing mask. This just helps to prep the skin for putting your war paint on and make’s you look fresh as a daisy. I always say to myself I don’t have time for face masks – especially in the morning, but honestly it’s totally worth it even just for the smell. This one from OLEHenriksen smell’s like heaven. get ready with me | Step Two Step two is all about the face, my favourite foundation will always be the Mac Studio Sculpt, I’ve still not found one that gives such a flawless finish for the same length of time. Nothing compares. I recently got my hands on one of the Urban Decay Naked eye palettes and let me tell you now, it did not disappoint. I’m still a fan of the nudes so I did a bit of a smokey eye using the lighter brown shades, a barely there smokey eye. I need to have a bit of a play around with it and watch a lot of youtube tutorials! I’m such a novice! For this look I used the shades; thirteen, combust and whiskey with a little bit go high in the corners of my eyes to brighten them. This was with the smoky Naked palette. get ready with me | Step Three The fun part of course. . getting dressed. I was challenged by Debenhams to create a monochrome look, I wouldn’t say that’s much of a challenge for a monochrome lover like me. I decided to play around a bit with sleeve lengths, normally I’d be super against wearing long sleeves under short sleeves, whoooooo? BUT, I’ve tried it out and I have to say, I don’t hate it. The frilly details on this top is always a winner and gives the look a more fun feel. I had to have the nude shoes, they’re super similar to a black pair I have from Zara and wear all the time. Rude not to. It’s definitely the coatigan that pulls the look together, monochrome all the way! What do you think to the long sleeves short sleeves dilemma?  *Top : Asos *Coatigan : Debenhams Jeans : Topshop *Shoes : Debenhams *Pep-Start : Clinique Bra : Elcy Clothing *Polishing Mask : Debenhams *Urban Decay Naked Smoky Palette : Debenhams Don’t forget to follow me on Bloglovin’ so you never miss a post!

5 Ways To Waste A Sunday In Bed

To me, Sunday is the day of rest aka you should spend all Sunday in bed. There’s plenty of ways to be productive from bed and why shouldn’t you treat yourself to a day of nothing but netflix and chill every once in a while? 5 Ways To Waste A Sunday In Bed Sunday is Netflix Day Sunday was created for Netflix, or was Netflix created for Sunday? It’s the age old question of the chicken and the egg but either way, a Sunday well spend brings a week of content and it ain’t well spent unless you’ve binge watched 10 episodes of Homeland. Force Your Pet To Love You One of my favourite Sunday activities involves dragging my puppy to bed for cuddles and play time. Usually I can manage to trap her there for a good few hours if I bring toys and treats . . do I sound like some form of pet peodophile? There’s nothing better than spooning your dog and watching Netflix. Be A Bookworm I used to love reading when I was younger, I still do but I always think I don’t have time. Sunday is for reading, i’m calling it! I’m currently reading #GirlBoss by the owner of Nasty Gal, if you’re lacking motivation this will change your life. I’m on my way to girl bossing life, so just you watch out! Have A Bed Picnic Sunday snacking in bed is life. Bed picnics are the best, finger food is essential, left over easter eggs could work. Basically, indulge. Stalk Social Media Endlessly My daily routine goes like this, wake up, stalk instagram, eat breakfast, stalk instagram, play with the dog, stalk instagram . . you get the picture. Who doesn’t love staying in bed and stalking your fave social media? Loungin’ There’s nothing that grinds my gears more than knickers that get stuck up your bum. After falling in love with my Calvin’s I’m now converted to the jersey style pants with the elasticated waistbands . . yes french knickers are pretty but they ain’t too soft for a day in bed. If you’re spending your Sunday in bed then you’re gonna want to invest in a pair of these pants and maybe even a matching set from Lounge Underwear. A phone that doubles as a mirror? Isn’t it a fashion bloggers dream? I’m currently torn between my everlasting love for the iPhone and the pure practicality and super sleek finish of the new Sony Xperia. Sure the Sony Xperia’s practical with its waterproof-ness, 2 day battery life and mega wow camera . . but will I still be cool if I don’t have an iPhone? What does one do when torn between two phones? I’m half tempted to walk around like some important business woman with two, I just can’t choose between them.

Payday Treat

So, I don’t know about you but I think after a hard month’s slog the least you can do for yourself is indulge in a little retail therapy, think of it as a payday treat from you to you! Personally, by the time my bank account is refilled I already have a list as long as my arm of things I need to buy! Don’t get me wrong I shop all month too, but there’s nothing like some guilt free shopping when you can actually afford it and don’t have to justify why you need a suede a line skirt ( you definitely do). Below I’ve put together some of the things I actually do need, I promise!!                                     Those Russel & Bromley loafers are going to be mine one day, I swear to you! In the mean time I’ll settle for the rest of it.. and doesn’t everyone need some marble jewellery in their lives?!

Hello!

Welcome to my brand spanking new blog! For my first post I thought I would keep it simple with a little intro to me and the blog. I’m a fashion stylist/personal stylist based in the UK, and have decided to set up a blog that focuses on my two main loves; Styling and Mindfulness. To save this post from being a boring essay on me and who I am and what I do, I thought I would make it fun with a magazine-eque questionaire so you can get to know me a bit better! Favourite Colour? Yellow What did you have for breakfast? Fruit with natural yogurt and a cup of tea! Starsign? Gemini Whats your idea of a good night out? Pizza and wine with good friends Cats or Dogs? It definitely used to be cats.. we have three.. but then we got a puppy (cockapoo) and I’ve never looked back! What one meal would you eat for the rest of your life if you could only have one thing? Curry!! Secret Talent? I can pick up a mug with my toes Can’t live without? Cake! My weakness! If I wasn’t a stylist I would be..  A graphic designer, I love photoshop! What makes you laugh? EVERYTHING! I’m always laughing and I’ve been told that it’s a fairly aggressive laugh! I will be keeping the blog updated three times weekly on a Monday, Wednesday and  Friday with the odd post thrown in here and there! Sinead x
