Shoe of the week.

Sometimes you just have to buy out of season ! But optimistacally we have just had the shortest day here in NZ , so summer is on its way.

The Brigstock sandal from HUSH is gorgeous. It combines comfort with style and will transition from day to night with ease.

My fave glow to products!

How do  you get your glow on?

I have a mixture of skin care products and make up products that I use. I also have an oily complexion so I do tend to get my shine on ( which I knock back with blotting papers, no powder for me!)


So my skincare products are not products that I use in my skin care if that makes sense. I take these two skin care products and use them  mixed in with foundation or alone on high points.

Tom Ford Radiant moisture souffle


 Very rich and creamy, but oil free so used in moderation my skin can tolerate this vs me getting breakouts. And I truly love this, its gorgeous. Worn alone with a very light concealer/foundation it gives a beautiful radiance or I will mix it up with foundation for an evening out .

A recent find and a lighter alternative is the Elizabeth Arden Illuminating emulsion.

I will probably use this as a moisturiser during the day as it does have skin care benefits but I will also tap it onto high points over foundations at night . Its light and boy does it give glow and you get a lorra lorra product.Saying that I haven’t been using it long enough to comment too much. I will keep you posted.



So my go to makeup bases are light and dewy, they include Charlotte Tilbury, Mac Face and Body, Hourglass Georgio Armani. In theory all products I am advised not to use because I am oily, but I love em .

So I like dewy stix highlighting balm from Ciate London. It brings glow without colour or shimmer and again isn’t too heavy My go to shade is glow and I also like to mix it with powder eye shadow for a dewy wet look.



My latest find is the ltd edition MAC face and body from their Mirage Noir collection shade light pearl. I have only tested this in store, but it was must have a first sight.


It comes in two shades and I will mix mine with MAC face and body  N3 and also apply it as a light bronzer over the top.

So all of these products give glow, are not shimmery and  are all light weight.


I still have the Daniel Sandler watercolour fluid blush in rose glow on my radar to add to the glow, but in the meantime my Bobbie Brown rouge pot in Fresh Melon does the job very well.


So what are you go to glow products

My recent mini MAC haul.

A recent trip to my local MAC counter saw me walking away with three new products.

MAC face and body is a staple for me ( cant wait to see how the new Dior compares!) but apart from that product I tend to dabble with MAC vs having daily staples. However this might just change .

Lots of you  know MAC eye Kohl Teddy, weirdly I have never used it. I do tend to gravitate towards black instead, but I know it is more harsh. So when this was suggested I thought ” go on then” And yes it does make my blue green eyes pop. Its a lovely soft kohl that glides onto to the water line and the colour is beautiful. It gives you intensity without  hardness and it compliments all of my eye colours beautifully. This is a stunning deep rich bronze that is a great all rounder and I suspect will remain a feature in my makeup collection.


The reason I actully went to MAC in the first place was to look for a new balm/gloss. I’m not a fan of lipstick, I’m a bit of an eye gal !

So let me introduce you to Patentpolish lip colour.A perfect creamy yet sheer texture that is great for day to day wear or a soft lip if pairing with a bold eye.There are a range of colours in this lovley range but “Its really me” met my brief.A soft wrm nude that is almost a perfect match for my lip colour, so me but only better! This chuncky pencil is a twist up so it ticks all my boxes for day to day conveniece and great for travel too. I don’t need a mirror to apply this fabulous product. It’s not sticky and give great colour payoff too considering the teaxture.

mac its really me


And finally a gorgeous glitter pigment that is stunning , shade Bronze.

mac glitter

What I love about this is it versitility, my preference over a nude cream shadow base this gives a hint of sparkle. Great with Teddy and and a coat of mascara.

Lightly pressed over darker shades this is more intense and perfect for a party eye. A quick spray of MAC fix and applied with my real techniques insta pop brush this packs a glitter punch !

I adore this limited edition glitter.

 I love this trio and soft subtle shades are gorgeous.

Teddy and Its really me are regulars. If you get chance to check ou the bronze glitter, its stunning and wont dissapoint.

Who I’m loving and what is irritating me!

“What I’m not gonna Buy.”

If you are singing this in your head as you read you will know exactly who I’m talking about. Kimberly Clarke, loving her right now, keeping you in check and saving you from the marketing hype  If you want to stop parting with your cash or reaching for your credit card every two freakin minutes to buy the latest makeup release, then see here for the entertaining anti haul videos. She’s talking a whole lotta sense is Kimberly 🙂 , she not saying don’t buy, you just don’t need to buy it all !!!!Anyway I love her , I hope you enjoy.

What is irritating me , this…..

I saw this jacket the other day and thought, I like this 🙂 Would I buy it, I could see myself buying it … but then …..

So  this is the jacket I saw Trelise Cooper : The Strokes jacket from her Cooper 2017 collection. Not everyone’s cup of tea , but I like it. Think weekend off duty and just an edgy bomber.


$499 here 

Now to be fair this is reversible


but then whilst looking on line I came across this ….

The Letterman patch fur jacket by Mother.


Revolve here 

Errr hello !

Now don’t get me wrong, I know 2 leather biker jackets from different companies look the same… or high street fashion is a blatant copy of cat walk.  But this is different, parting with $500 to get something a wee bit different only to find , it isn’t, is just irritating.

So in the words of the fabulous Kimberly Clark , What I’m not gonna buy ! 

Happy shopping !

Cheers .

Military Jacket

I love a good jacket, invest well and these pieces will stay around season after season. My next investment piece is a military jacket. I know exactly what I’m looking for, I loved the Burberry jacket last AW16, but it is way out of my price range at £1500 +. Zara  also produced a great jacket, but it was navy and I definitely want black.

Anyway….Today I saw the new Cooper Urban Military Jacket.It’s kinda what I’m looking for , but not quite, its a bit more blazer like, but I’m might keep my eye on it !

$509 here

I’m looking for something more along these lines


This is a french label I believe, oozes simplicity and style 🙂 In fact a few I like on on pinterest appear to be french

So I think I will just keep looking 🙂

Happy Shopping!
