A festive theme seems to have creeped into my daily makeup look and I’ve been loving a red lip teamed with a golden/bronzy eye. Usually I still for one, either a coloured eye with a neutral lip or a bright lip and neutral eye but I actually think this look has been working quite well and I can’t stop recreating it! 
I discovered Clique Matte Crimson in my collection a few weeks ago, it hadn’t had much use as I don’t use reds quite as much in summer but I am so glad I rediscovered it. Although it’s a matte lipstick, it doesn’t dry out the lips or cling to dry patches which is very rare. It’s a beautiful classic blue red, which applies evenly and whitens the teeth. Teamed with that I have one of my favourite eyeshadows, MAC Woodwinked. Although it’s a bronze colour, I find it’s quite close to my skintone and therefore doesn’t look too made-up, I also find that I don’t really need a crease colour with this makes it all look a little more effortless. I do however find that this eyeshadow requires a little bit of eyeliner to really define the eye and lash line for which I turned to Estee Lauder Double Wear Liner.
For the rest of the makeup I keep it fairly simple, Chanel Vitalumiere Foundation teamed with a quick brush of Eyeko Brow Gel and a sweep of Illamasqua Contour Powder under the cheek bones. Depending on how I am feeling I also often add a touch of Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector powder in Moonstone which is the most perfect highlighter I own, beautifully fine texture and I love the colour. 
Another item I have been wearing a lot recently my new Vashi Pearl Pendant Necklace which I find to go with most outfit as it’s beautiful, classic and quite dainty. If you have heard of Vashi, he is the man who lots of celebrities go to for diamonds and beautiful Jewellery and you may have recently seen his work on Cheryl Cole on the X Factor. You can purchase the items from Vashi.com and it’s a worth a look if you are looking to purchase something special this Christmas.
What has been your recent go to makeup look?

 Although I love Jumpsuit’s on other people I can never seem to find one that fits me perfectly, I recently discovered this one from Lavish Alice. I love the colour, the material is very light and I think the cut at the top with the spaghetti straps is particularly attractive. I did find that is is still a little short but I can just about get away with it however after wearing it for a couple of hours it became very static and started to cling to every inch of my body (as you can see above isn’t very flattering) which has never ever happened to me and washing it hasn’t helped. I was really looking forward to wearing it during the summer so I’d love some tips on how to stop this happening if anyone has any?

Accessories wise I kept it quite simple with some strappy Primark Sandals and gold hops. My glasses are a new pair from Triwa and are the Midnight Thelma Oversized design which I actually thought would be slightly bigger. That aside I love the shape and colour but it’s the barely noticeable pink tips that really finish these glasses in my opinion and at only £52 from MyBag.com I think they’re actually quite affordable. 
As it was Easter I also felt it was only fair that my Gold Plated Jana Reinhardt Bunny Rabbit Necklace also get an outing. I absolutely love this, the chains quite dainty but the bunny is so adorable and I received so many compliments on it. Finally I also wore my new Gold Plated, Arrow ring from Kris Nations at Cadenzza which has really led me to want to purchase a few more better quality rings as my normal ones from H&M simply fade too quickly. I also love that this is a little more unique and a little more special and all for just £28.

 Watch is Michael Kors… as always.

 Last week I received a super pretty package from Link of London. Inside I found a stunning Star Dust  Toggle Bracelet which I feel automatically in love with! Although it’s not something I would buy very often I love having a few stables in my jewellery collection which are a little more expensive but versatile and well made. It’s the perfect bracelet to accessories any outfit wether it’s paired with a stack of other bracelets and a chunky watch or worn elegantly by itself.
I love how sparkly and pretty this is and although it’s beautifully dainty and elegant it still remains very modern, I’m sure I’ll get lots of wear out of it throughout the year! I love the rope effect contrasted with the sparkly details and it is perfect if you are still looking to drop some Valentine’s hints.

Have you got your eye on any Link of London items? What accessory are you currently loving?

This bracelet is available for £150 from Link of London stockists.

Earlier in the week I spoke about the TK Maxx items of Jewellery which I picked up for this post and thought I would share a few tips and tricks to shopping in TK Maxx as it can be a bit of a treasure hunt.  and share some of the current jewellery trends reflected in TK Maxx’s stock. 

I currently love big chunky jewellery especially studs, crosses and spikes- I picked up the beautiful necklace above with all the spikes which looks perfect teamed with the chunky watch. The stand out thing for me in TK Maxx was the watches and how affordable they were. The one I visited didn’t have too many lady ones but there was a few I fell in love with particularly the two above.

I will undoubtedly return to TK Maxx just before christmas as they had beautiful Christmas Party pieces such as statememnt necklaces and little diamond rings and earrings. I also love the gift sets such as the pearl one above which I am sure my mum would love!

Every where is clearly separated by department and then category and then size for example women, trousers size 10 or mens, shoes, size 10.

Delivery arrive daily and sometimes even more in some stores so be prepared to see new things arrive constantly and pop in regularly. Everything that is in store goes straight to the shop floor as there are no stock rooms. I’d say if you like something try it on and decide if you want to buy it as it may be gone the next time you come in.

And most importantly don’t be scared to have a good long rummage its not as daunting as it seems! They have really upped their game with a new jewellery section but I love them for amazing handbags and discounted beauty bits. Check out their new ad to see just how great something of their pieces really are!
