Add a splash of colour to your day.

Posted On January 22, 2015| 2 Replies

I really struggle with this time of year.  I hate what feels like endless days of gloom.  Today fleetingly the sun peeped its head out from behind the clouds, but it disappeared as quickly as it arrived.  I love looking at all those great instagram shots from far flung places, reminiscing of our time spent in Australia secretly wishing I was back there and wondering why we ever left.

Alternatively I like checking out the array of colourful blogs and bloggers out there.  There is no end of colour inspiration to brighten your day.  Here are some of my rotating favourites.

DESIGN LOVEFEST I literally love this blog.  Whenever I visit this site I just lust after everything about it not only is she beautiful it is so sleek and well put together.  I love the regular COLOURFEST posts.  What better way to brighten the day than with a splash of pink.


Capture by Lucy : I am slightly addicted to this beautiful blog, but more so Lucy’s instagram feed and her weekly #capturingcolour.  I love that each week there is a different colour which you can tag along with, there are always so many amazing photos.  It really makes you look at what is in front of you and search out for the colour of the week.  Some weeks are easier than others.  Last week it was the colour purple.  This week is the colour Orange.


Oh Happy Day : Just the title of this blog cheers me up.  It is full of great ideas and party inspiration like these stars.

A Beautiful Mess : I love reading their blog post about living an inspired life.  It is bright colourful, thought provoking and insightful.  A Beautiful Mess is packed full of colour and inspiration.  You could also check out their post about embracing Winter.  It is packed full of useful tips some of which I am going to try and embark upon.

Everything Red

Posted On December 7, 2014| Leave a reply

I have always had a penchant for red shoes and handbags and when I was younger I used to dye my hair pillar box red but just lately this obsession has spilled over into Red Lipsticks and Red Nails.  Until the summer I rarely wore makeup and whenever I did my eyebrows or wore lipstick I felt very self conscious.  Then I had my makeup done at the Bobbi Brown counter and now I am a convert to the Red Lipstick and matching Red Nails.

Here are some of the best Red Lipsticks and Nail Varnishes I have recently found.  Perfect for the Festive Season.



Bobbi Brown Lip Pencil

Bobbi Brown Hollywood Red Lip Gloss

Bobbi Brown Creamy Matt Lip Colour – Red Carpet

MAC Ruby Woo Lip Colour

Bobbi Brown Art Stick – Harlow Red

Bobbi Brown Scotch on The Rocks – Sultry Red Lipstick

A trick I have discovered is to wear a Matt Lip Colour and then add a flick of lip gloss over the top.  It looks amazing.  The only thing when wearing the red is to be careful when drinking out of a wine glass that you don’t accidentally end up with a ridge of lipstick on your nose.


Opi Dutch Tulips

Topshop Nails – Brights, War Paint

Opi Reflection – Designer Series

Nars High Gloss Nail Polish Paradiso

Essie Really Red

What is your favourite colour?
