NYE- Beauty Insta Inspo!

Hiya Guys! 

Hope you had a great Christmas! 

I've been spending mine seeing family, eating non-stop and am heading up to London tomorrow for a couple of days to shop shop shop! 

Bliss. Bloody love Christmas hols! 

Next up though, we have NYE! New years is actually something again I will be spending with my family this year and don't really party, but that doesn't stop me looking at new make up styles or buying shed loads of glittery stuff! :) 

Here are some of my fave beauty trends that I love at the moment & want to try for this new years/perhaps try in 2016. Whether you are going out or staying in this NYE,I guarantee you will def wanna check these out! 

1) Glitter Roots

First seen on the Ashish SS16 models earlier this year, this trend has gone down a storm on instagram with hella loads of people giving it a go! 

Personally, I love it best on coloured hair though there is no reason why us blonde, brunettes and redheads cant give it a go whether we have dyed out roots to cover or not! This trend looks so much fun and is one I really want to give a go! 

Creating glitter root styled hair is easy - click here for a tutorial. As we don't have a Sallys drugstore here in the UK a good alternative glitter to use is glitter injections from Dolls Kill. 

2) Nails 

One of my beauty resolutions for 2016 is to get more creative with my nails as I had my first ever shellacs done a couple of months ago - though to me, I felt they were pretty pricey!

I love this nail DIY as its glittery (duh!) and the numbers look pretty cool - maybe just if I used my right hand I could do it was when I paint my nails with my left is never as good! 

I saw some amazing Nail art stencils in superdrug a while ago but can't find them online, Here are some Ebay dupes though for just £2.99! 

3) Colour Pop Eyes

I am a huge fan of eye make up and trying out different colours. At this time of year I really love using Collection 2000 glam crystals eye liner on my lower lashes as above. Its one of my fave looks and gets loads of compliments, 

The are just £2.99 and available in sooo many colours!! :) I have been buying these for years and can honestly say they are one of my fave beauty buys for the party season and I am never without one in my bag at this time of year. 

Not a glitter fan or just experiment with colourful eyeshadows? Check out the latest Urban Decay Palette - a limited edition collab with one of my all-time style and music heroines - Gwen Stefani. An exciting palette that not only includes your fave go to nude shades, but also some incredible jewel tone colours that are perfect for NYE eyes!.  

4) Face Mask

Obvs you don't want to be wearing a face mask to a party, but they are brilliant for the post party pick me up / pre party skin prepping! 

I've really got in to using Lush's face masks lately and they leave my skin feeling fab and in great condition to pop a fresh face of make up on to an hour or so after applying and rinsing off. I'm really bad at taking all my make up off so these are great to make your skin feel better if your having a bad skin day before getting ready for your NYE party. 

A good thing to know is if you buy 6 of these little pots over time and keep hold of the packaging, than you get a free one if you give them back to Lush to recycle..brilliant! 

What are you planning to do with your NYE make up - hit me up with your ideas or faves from my picks above! :) 

Love, Sarah x

Velvet Lux

Draped Asymmetric Skirt // Boohoo

I tried velvet last year and have realised I have gone for very similar look here again only this time instead I have gone for an almost top-to-toe asymmetric ensemble! 

Whether there are any rules of wearing two asymmetric pieces together, I'm not sure - I just picked these two out because I love the shine of the velvet and the draped skirt together - makes me feel more christmassy going for festive colours! :) Asymetrics always give a nice hour glass illusion  and are super flattering for everyone to wear. 

This bodysuit from Missguided is a stunning velvet piece if you want to try something different that's velvety and shows abit of skin - just be sure if you do order it to order a size up - this is an 8 and its super tight on me as it is! 

Velvet always makes me feel wintery and I think it is perfect for evening wear ...not for wearing on a farm as I found out later (blogger issues 198 - working full time & with it being winter taking any opportunity to shoot whenever possible..even if that means stripping off in the countyside and shooting whilst the suns out and daylight!!) 

I got pretty muddy but these platform beauties from Boohoo somehow survived! One of my fave shoe purchases this year! I actually bought the silver glitter version of these as well, they are so comfy its unbelievable!

Merry Christmas Everyone! Hope you all have a fantastic day! :)

Love, Sarah x

Handbags & Gladrags

Rose Frill Evening Bag // old! 

This year for my winter wardrobe I really wanted to carry on the 70s trend but wanted something a that was different to my short skirts and high highs I have accumulated. I went in search of a winter style 70's maxi dress and stumbled across this amazing dress from Asos!

Long sleeved dresses have been really popular since Kate Middleton wore her sleeved McQueen wedding dress a couple of years ago and I'm really pleased these have stuck around since as I for one don't like retreating in to trousers and jeans for the whole of winter. A long sleeved maxi allows you to be comfortable as well as means you don't have to fuss about with tights or too much with footwear as no one will see them. - result!

Its been so warm here (hence the unfestive backdrop!) you can also go around without a coat on a the moment so luckily for now I don't need to cover this fab dress under layers :) The pattern is quite festive though don't you think?

To try and give it more of a wintery feel, I also added in these faux fur cuffs. I first saw these during Boohoos Charli XCX drop not long ago but didn't get in there quick enough to get them, however, there are loads of these beauties on Ebay in different colours if you too missed out on getting a pair.

Faux fur instantly makes any outfit feel glam - just adding these cuffs, a evening clutch and a slick of lippy and you're there already! This outfit oozes 70s glamour - It's all about accessorising and taking it from day to evening wear simply by swapping accessories! :)

Love , Sarah x
