Good morning my beauties!

If you haven’t already guessed by now, I’m a bit of a smoothie lover…

Smoothies are such a great way of packing in nutrients and your 5 a day, not to mention that they taste great and are super quick to make!

Today’s beauty smoothie is a green one, using an added ingredient – Kale.

Oh no…. kale!” I hear you say… Well this smoothie is great if your not a fan as there are so many other yummy things in it, you will hard,y notice it!

But before I tell you that, let me tell you a bit about kale

1. Full of fibre and low in calories
2. Filled with iron
3. Has vitamin k and a load of antioxidants that help protect against some cancers
4. It is high in calcium
5. High in vitamin c
6. Lastly a great detox food!

Phew…. See it has its benefits.
So to make my beauty smoothie all you need is…

2015/01/img_1299.jpg

2 bananas
Half an avocado
A handful of blueberries
2 cups of Kale
A squeeze of honey
A cup of water (or more depending on how thin you like it)

Mix this all up in a blender until smooth and there we go!!!

Girl Talk: What makes you…. YOU?

Art, Beauty, Beauty, fashion, makeup, Fashion, jewellery, Makeup, Uncategorized

Grab a cup of tea, a warm blanket and enjoy my little heart to heart with you girlies….

So I turned to my Q&A a day book to answer my daily question…..

“What makes you, YOU?”

It really got me thinking about who I actually am and what I am actually like as a real person…

My blog is my passion, and I adore every single blog post I read. By starting this blog, It has made me a lot more confident, committed and focussed which in turn reflects on my daily life!

But even before I began my daily doses of beauty, I have always been caring, kind and mindful of others. It’s definitely in my nature to put others before myself and that is one quality that I pride myself on.

2015/01/img_1298.jpg

This question really helped boost my confidence and helped me realise what qualities I could perhaps improve on.

If you guys do one thing today to help yourself, ask yourself this question and have a real good think about the answer.

If you would like to own the Q&A a day diary, you can find it in my previous posts!

Live, love, cherish.

Red eyes at night- Paris inspired

Art, Beauty, Beauty, fashion, makeup, Fashion, jewellery, Makeup, Uncategorized

Good afternoon gorgeous people!

Ive been feeling very colourful lately, and inspired by the lights of Paris. When I think of Paris, I think of the Moulin Rouge and romance.

I created this look using a mix of reds and browns, using a brighter shimmery white in the corner to make my eyes pop!

I finished the look with my favourite black liquid liner and mascara.
Its super easy and quick to create but the key is to blend blend blend!!

Neutral chic nails

Good evening my beauties,

I just had to show you this gorgeous colour I recently bought for my nails.
Its by the amazing brand, NailsInc and looks flawless with any skin tone.

The shade is called “Sao Paulo Streets” – grey, pastel, glossy

As I have quite pale skin, it elongates my fingers and makes them look classic and elegant.

Inspiration: Parisian Chic

Art, Beauty, Fashion, jewellery, Makeup, Uncategorized

Good evening honeys!

As you are well aware, I’m going to Paris very soon and I am so excited about being in the city of fashion and romance.

I decided to look for some fashion inspiration and I fell in love with this gorgeous style of hat…

2015/01/img_1208.jpg

I’ve always admired people who can wear a floppy hat, it’s a great statement piece that makes you look instantly glamorous. And since I am going to Paris, I wanted to look the part!

I came across this gorgeous hat in New Look, I’ve been in search for one for quite a long time and this one was perfect.

2015/01/img_1201.jpg

2015/01/img_1202.jpg

It’s super soft and fits like a dream. I love the sandy beige colour as it will go with most outfits and looks, dressed up or down. I love how detailed the bow is giving the hat a chic and elegant look.

2015/01/img_1206-0.jpg

I bought this hat for an amazing Ā£14.99. The quality is outstanding and I highly recommend this for this winter/ spring season.

Keep posted for more daily doses of beauty,

See you all tomorrow,
