COLLECTION COSMETICS

Sunday, 27 July 2014 | Comments: 0

I was lucky enough to be able to receive a few Collection products to review recently. A few things: I can guarantee you that these opinions are my own and are my upmost honest. I know it's difficult to believe what anyone online says about any product but you're just going to have to deal with that. I've always been very intrigued about Collection as YouTubers/British bloggers have raved about it since forever ago - I didn't know whether it was worth the hype seeing as it is at such an affordable price - so affordable that it's almost unbelievable to match up the price with its quality - but I gave it a shot anyway. I tested these products out for over a week now and I think I can give my two cents in now. Naturally, there will be some pros and cons to each product, so if you're here to see praise fully, then you're at the wrong place but if you're here to see if the products are worth purchasing at your local Countdown, you're at the right place. Take a look at what I think about these three products.

THOUGHTS INTO WORDS #2

Tuesday, 22 July 2014 | Comments: 1

Above is just a bad random picture I took at a tile store. Post inspired by Katherine is Awesome.
I think that these past few weeks I've lowered in self confidence but I just need to learn that life is life and everything happens for a reason - as cliche as it sounds. I'm having trouble learning that at the moment but it's in the works. I can't keep expecting good things to come my way because in reality, life doesn't work that way. This post is for me to vent and tell someone about what I'm going through - it may not look like a huge deal when you read it but my emotion is much more complicated than what I write. Even if one person reads it, I'll will feel a lot better - there are times when you just need someone to talk to and when you're stuck at home doing school work, you don't exactly have the time to have a proper conversation with someone. Here's me rambling on about my problems.

COOP BY TRELISE COOPER S/S15

It gives me great pleasure to present to you some of the pieces from the new COOP by Trelise Cooper  Sping 2015 collection. When I found out that the collection was dropping soon, I wanted to get in as soon as possible to see what was going to hit the stores as I've always loved this range by looking through it online - so I had emailed and requested to take a look at some samples at the Trelise Cooper headquarters. I was surprised to have been accepted to take a look since I'm such a new blogger, so that is something I appreciate very much about Trelise Cooper as a whole - they are always so open and happy to give up-and-coming media a chance. I've come by several occasions where I've heard people say "Trelise Cooper... this", "Trelise Cooper... that", how great both the service and how kind the staff is and I can see why. So, I went over to the headquarters and couldn't believe what I saw. COOP by Trelise Cooper is aimed towards a younger demographic, but it's mature enough to be elegant and fun at the same time. I picked out a few of my favourite pieces from the line so that I could take photographs for you on what is coming up next in the line. The first capsule of the Spring 2015 line dropped today - these pieces that you are able to see aren't in that capsule. It's so new that I don't even know what they're called yet, so you'll have to keep your eyes peeled on their website/social media for the next capsules!

I'm quite ashamed that I didn't find this artist earlier - I must admit that I, like many other people discovered Diplo through Lorde, then after looking through some of Diplo's material, I came by MØ - Thank you Diplo for collaborating with her, or else I would of never discovered this set of wonderful music. Karen Marie Ørsted is a singer-songwriter from Denmark and goes by her stage name, 'MØ' (Pronounced as 'Moo', but not as long of an 'oo' as you would like it to be). I've always been fond of the song she had collaborated with Diplo and had it on replay for a while but i've never looked into who this artist actually is - I thought she was just a DJ of some sort that just remixes, i'm also ashamed of this. This album, No Mythologies to Follow (2014), is sort of electronic which may not fit some of your music standards but if you get the time, flick through some songs and cross your fingers that you'll like it - I'll be crossing mine for you.

CURRENT FAVOURITES: JUNE 2014

Monday, 7 July 2014 | Comments: 1

I know this post is a little late as it's already seven days into July but, I wanted to get this in for you guys anyway because I already promised you beforehand - Now, I rarely have any new favourites as I mostly just stick to the same thing over and over, but I realised I've been on the 'oh natural but healthy looking' look lately. I've realised as I've grown through time, not only do I become more mature, but I also have grown into myself where I've learnt to accept my appearances and if I'm truly unhappy with it up to the point that it affects my mood, I work on it like eating healthy (Eating healthy solves all problems - Okay maybe not, but it does help a lot). Since I feel more comfortable, I feel more comfortable in going natural on a day to day basis. Winter is a season of coldness, but it's also the season of sucking the colour and moisture out of you so although this may not seem like a lot to you, it makes the world of a difference. My favourites this month is all about keeping that moisture, shine and colour locked even during Winter.

FFS #3

Jean Paul Gaultier Spring/Summer 2014
Opening: Manon Leloup
Closing: Bianca Li

This show is unlike anything i've seen before, not your typical fashion show with just a catwalk and robotic models. Don't get me wrong, I love the classic shows, but this one stood out to me like no other. What makes this show so unique to me is that Mr. Gaultier made sure the models have fun - and it shows that they did have fun - Strike a pose, then work. The walks aren't perfect and that's what makes it so beautiful. You are able to see the clothes flow beautifully and naturally, without having it forced. The past 2 'FFS Series' have funnily had Karlie Kloss in it, and I can't deny that she is one of my favourite models out there, but it's also funny that she's picked the most amazing shows to walk it when she could easily have denied the appearance. Jean Paul Gaultier's clothing is also fun, powerful and bold, I know this for a fact because my Mum owns a few pieces of his in which they're all strong in colour and design. These designs from this show are both structured and delicate which is one of the reasons why I love this show. Take a look at a few of my favourites from the collection.
