'ello lovelies! I've finally taken the plunge and set up a blog. This idea most definitely wasn't a New Year's resolution that I've only just gotten round to do... in February. Because that would be silly. Ahem. 
I think my next resolution is to buy some fake tan because, day-umn, I didn't realise just how pale I was until I took these photos. Crikey. I'm on the verge of taking Casper on Jeremy Kyle for a paternity test.

The lipstick is one of my absolute favourites. I'm a sucker for a purple lippy and this one is just perfect. Even though it's such a strong pigment, it's still creamy and lovely, and doesn't dry up your lips which is always a bonus when it's so cold out your face is drying up like a prune. I couldn't recommend Illamasqua more for a good lipstick.

I best be off now anyway. I've got to find a pool of St. Tropez to dive into.

big love,

  4. Welcome to the blogging world! Your title and signature images are so gorgeous first of all. The softness of the splattered colors are such a lovely touch, I wish I had thought of something like that! I'm really digging the color play you have going on in this outfit. That statement necklace and the purple shade go so well together and the structure of your bag and shoes really balances out this outfit. Great first post! Hope to read more soon.
