Colour Pop or Flop?


Hey Everyone!

This is something I have been wanting to do for a while as I have a range of Colour Pop products and just cannot seem to workout whether or not I rate them or not!

I brought 14 different shadow pigments and highlighters as well as matte liquid lipsticks ( I will show swatches and thoughts of lipsticks on a different post ) I will also do a full swatch post and my thoughts on each individual shade too.. this is just an overview of my thoughts on the overall brand.
 
Here are the swatches of the shadow pigments I brought.. all from Colour Pop Cosmetics! I brought these for my sisters wedding and summer festival season ( which is why I have some bright pinks and a random blue ) something that I love about Colour Pop is that the shadows are fun, bold and super pigmented. A few of these shadows are from the Super Shock range and OMG WOW they really are shockingly bold and beautiful!

Please ignore the tv in the background I did not realise I had that it would come up in the recording, Whoops! anyway so here are the swatches of the highlighters I brought .. I always prefer to do highlighter swatches on video because it really shows the true pigmentation and actual highlight it can give!

Personally I love Colour Pop Cosmetics for the Shadows, Blushers and Highlighters. They are so pigmented and the texture is something like no other brand. Its creamy and almost feels wet to touch but dries to a powder finish! Colour Pop is also very VERY affordable. 

Unfortunately I am not so keen on the Lips range from Colour Pop but again I will be doing another post on them soon along with a blog post on all the swatches!!!!

How to Holiday


Hi Everyone, if you have been on any of my social media you will see that I've just got back from a week in Crete for my sisters wedding!  ( I will do a special wedding post soon ) but i want to show you the top 3 essential items this summer - well my top 3 anyway!

Sunglasses is a must, especially ones with UV protection.. so a pair of polarised sunglasses is essential, but also a few extras like mine above that are 'just for fashion' with a little bit of protection.


This one is a bit of a two in one a swimsuit/bikini with a sarong! I have gone for a deep plunge red swimsuit from ASOS with a Marks and Spencer's short white Sarong with a small elephant print in black along the bottom. 


Finally a summer outfit that you can wear to any hot weathered occasion. I got both this skirt and the sleeveless blouse from Dorothy Perkins. This can be warn for any Summer Occasion.. for example: a BBQ, a Beach Day, a Lunch out or a Picnic or even just to go shopping.


Man Cave Vs She Shed


So as we all know everyone needs there own place to chill out and have some 'Me time' as I call it...
everyones heard of 'The Man Cave' but have you heard of the 'She Shed' well take a look at some of these amazing 'She Sheds' ..

MAN CAVE - basically a personal pub with a playstation

SHE SHED - a place for listening to music, painting nails, relaxing and reading a magazine..




Tropical Trends


Tropical Trends are very in this summer, I love getting outfit inspirations from different world cultures, destinations and seasons. 


Baby Pink is one of my go to colours this year ( and I am not a pink person ) this Dolce & Gabbana Women's Tropical City Collection dress embraces its sense of fun for Summer '17.


Say Aloha to tropical Swimwear this season, with vibrant floral prints, fruity fun and leafy motifs there is definitely something for everyone! The tropical trend is perfect for making you feel and look beach ready.


If you're looking for a statement pair of shoes.. tropical print is perfect this summer. Add a pair of tropical Mules like this pair from Gucci to a plain white tee tucked into a pair of MOM Jeans and you're ready to go!


Finally a summer must have this season is a tropical shirt that you can bunch up, tie up or even tuck in to your favourite denim shorts.
