Seventeen Stay Pout Lipstick in Just a Fling - Mac Dupe

It’s a sure sign that ladies love their lipstick that when the recession hit, sales of the stuff continuously soared. I for one am living proof of this phenomenon – when those Topshop boots or suede jacket seem so very out of reach, I, without fail, hit the lipstick counters hard. Further proof, in the fact I now own about fifty lip products – sticks, pencils, lacquers, glosses, the works! I’m always looking to add to my collection, and who can blame me? Nothing beats the glamourising power of a strong red shade, the fun factor of a fuchsia pink stain, a sultry, sexy nude lip or the fun of collecting every shade in between.

Monday Mix and Match

Monday again, can you believe it? Time to share some of my favourites in fashion, beauty and food for the week…

Fashion

Primark Gold and Turquoise Choker and Cuff - Festival Fashion

Is there anything that evokes the feeling of summer more than turquoise jewellery and white cheesecloth? Not in my book anyway! I’ve always had a soft spot for the rustic, vintage charm and vibrant colour of turquoise and this choker and cuff from Penneys have retro style, not to mention festival season fashion, written all over them! For now, I’ll be styling them to suit the decidedly more grey weather we are having by throwing ’em on with all black and maybe even a bit o’ fringing for a nod to the seventies trends that is currently dropping onto our fashion radars in a big way. Trust me, turquoise, fringing, cheesecloth, suede, flares – we will all be wearing some form or another by July… And I ain’t complaining! If I can nonchalantly channel my gal Stevie Nicks in any way, then it’s all good – wish me luck with that one, yeah?
