Spring 2014 - Pastel Madness

Erm, so I may have gone a bit overboard with the pastel trend. But working in retail means I'm seeing all the amazing colours coming in, and getting to style them on mannequins in everything I want to dress in myself.

Spring 2014 by erinjainex 

Although pastel isn't really a new trend for Spring, the different thing for this year is clashing them. Don't just pick one, pick a few! I particularly love this mint with lilac combination, and the lemon socks would be so cute poking out of the top of these boots - keep the boots a bit sturdier to toughen up the look. I've also included this cute jewelled collar top (in the sale!) to put on under the dress - just a sweet little touch that adds extra depth to the outfit.

What do you think to the pastel trend? For someone who normally wears black with an extra helping of black, I'm getting suckered in.. big time!

My Nail Polish Collection

If you asked me what my makeup must haves would be, nail polish doesn't come anywhere near the top 5. Or 10. It comes bottom of the list - my nails aren't that nice so I don't paint them as I feel it only highlights them! I prefer fake nails if I want them to look nice - however, I've still somehow managed to build quite a little collection. If you fancy a nosy, read on!

Blogger Addiction: Candles!

If you've been reading beauty blogs for a while now, then you'll know almost every one is obsessed with candles. Diptyque, Yankee Candles, Jo Malone.. all lovely and sadly all very expensive. I myself do have quite the addiction to candles as well but not quite the money to match it - enter Ikea's Tindra.

Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture (The Mats 205) Review

I know that some people think high end lipsticks are a rip off, but I just don't have the heart to agree. I mean, look at this lipstick. Look at it. It's beautiful. And that's just the packaging - you haven't even seen the colour yet.

January Blues

So, I don't think I'm the only one feeling the full blown, depressing effects of January - am I right? Everything is miserable, everyone is poor, and after having Christmas everything just seems to have lost it's sparkle. If like me, you find it really hard to motivate yourself then I've tried to think of a few tips to help us all out - which I'm taking myself and already seems to be helping a bit.

Face of the day feat. Chanel

One of the lovely gifts I got for my birthday was the Chanel Rouge Allure Luminous Matte lipstick (and breathe!) in La Sensuelle. It was a shade I had asked for after swatching it in Selfridges and falling head over heels in love. And as one of my New Year's resolutions is to start posting more actual pictures of my face - I thought I'd use this in a face of the day.
