Rose Golds

Rose Gold

Topshop Earrings // Topshop Playsuit // Saint Laurent Handbag // Michael Kors Watch // Love Necklace // Balenciaga Ring // Michael Kors Bangle // Naked 3 Palette // Michael Kors Ring // Bebe Necklace // Mac Tan Pigment // Balenciaga Wallet

Lately I've been loving Rose Gold. I never really purchased any Rose Gold Jewelery until I was given the Michael Rose Gold Watch for Christmas, and ever since I've been loving matching the jewelery. I try and stay away from mixing and matching golds and silvers but lately I've been only wearing Rose Gold jewellery.

The Topshop Pastel Stone Drop Earrings mixes pastel colours and rose gold at the same time which I love. I'm usually not a fan of earrings, but I think these would look nice for a special occasion or in the summer time. I also love this White Playsuit from Topshop. I don't own enough white clothes {does anyone else have this problem?} so I came across this when browsing the site and thought it was great for daytime wear. Topshop are also having 20% off for Students so its the perfect time to get shopping if you have anything on your wishlist (here).

Saint Laurent, I don't know where to start. *One day* I will get my hands on this bag but until then it'll forever be waiting in my checkout bag on Net-a-Porter. I tend to do that a lot and end up feeling depressed when you look through your shopping bag and realize none of the products in it are at all realistic. Speaking of high end items, the Balenciaga jewellery line does not seem to fail. This Balenciaga ring is an absolute dream. I love the simplicity and design of it. Michael Kors also do a great range of rose gold jewelery in which I've purchased before. I love the Matchstick ring from their collection and think it would look perfect to wear in the evening.

Sidenote: I purchased a beaded bracelet from Michael Kors that was made from elastic band and it ended up breaking very soon after the purchase. I recommend that you're very careful if you are thinking of purchasing their beaded bracelets as I much prefer their solid bangles and cuffs!

I came across this cute 'love' necklace which I noticed is on sale for $5 from Aeropostale. I've never shopped with them before but I thought it was adorable and fit perfectly into the rose gold theme. Grab it whilst its available!

Onto the beauty products. I'm sure most of you have heard about the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette by now  which saves me rambling on. The palette features mostly rose gold and copper tones eye-shadows that compliment any skin tone. My favourite is 'Trick' and 'Liar' from the palette and I love using them together to create an almost smokey but golden look. Mac's Tan Pigment also delivers the same results: a rose gold shimmery eyeshadow. I recommend using some spray or Fix+ before applying any pigment to ensure longevity and no fall out.

What do you think of Rose Golds?

Must Have: Spring Edition

Must Have: Spring Edition

With Spring quickly approaching, I've been loving pastels and patterns. The weather is finally getting warmer and the brights are replacing the blacks. I have a lot of items on my wishlist, but I think these are perfect for Spring and the upcoming warmer months.

I've fallen in love with these Saint Laurent Classic Tribute Heels. They come in a variety of colours and are perfect for Spring/ Summer. I love the T-bar on the heels which are always flattering on anyone. Layering necklaces has been really popular lately and I love these ones I found on Forever 21.They are extremely cheap and would go really well with this pale nude Topshop Skinny Tailored Blazer (here) . If you're anything like me, the only blazers I own are black - which is why I loved this Tailored blazer from Topshop in this colour. These Topshop Monochrome Shorts (here) are perfect for warm days out and would look amazing paired with a white tank top. In addition to all the fashion items, of course there have to be some beauty staples. Chanel Lipstick in 'Boy' (here)  is one of my all time favourite lipsticks. Its a warm nude that is on the rosier and pinkier side so it adds some colour to the lips whilst also moisturizing and keeping them hydrated. Bobbi Brown Bronzer (here) is one of my go-to's in the warmer weather as it is so lightweight and gives a very natural glow, which is perfect for when you're under the sun beam constantly.

What are your must haves for Spring?

April Wishist Featuring Mulberry, Zara, etc

April Wishlist

Mulberry Bayswater tote here // Mac Lipstick in Pure Zen here // Ray Ban Oversized Avaitors here// Zara Red High Heel Shoes here // Mac Blush in Desert Rose here // Oh My Love Floral Playsuit here

I don't know how April has come by so quickly but nevertheless I've already started shopping for Spring/ Summer essentials. My wishlist is a mixture of both high end brands and high street beauty products that I've been lusting over lately. I've had my eye on the Mac 'Pure Zen' lipstick and 'Desert Rose' blush for a while so I'm hoping I'll get my hands on them this month. The Mulberry Bayswater tote has been an absolute favourite of mine for years - I love how simple yet classic it is. This bag holds a permanent spot on my wishlist! 

Adding some colour and variety to your wardrobe is always the best way to transition into the Spring/ Summer months and to brush away the Winter blues. I've heard the weather in London has been getting warmer and Spring has finally arrived {New York is still battling the cold weather with frequent snow showers and blizzards} so its time to take advantage of the warmer days!

Most brands and online stores have already brought out their Spring/ Summer collections so its the perfect time to go shopping for the upcoming seasons before everything becomes limited in sizes!

Whats on your April Wishlist?
