OPI . Dulce De Leche .
Okay, so I need your opinion. What are we thinking of this nail colour? I'm on the fence at the moment, I don't want it to look like I'm just all finger and no nail?! I like a nude nail, it's good for elongating your fingers, which is great for me as I think I have quite stubby little ones. I'm just a little worried this is a tad too close to my actual skin colour? The reviews so far have been mixed, so come on, what do you think?
Dulce De Leche is a lovely muted pinky-brown, with a subtle gloss that becomes opaque after 2 coats, I'm thinking it would work really well with an ombre glitter effect over the top...

Dajana Basic, wedding dress collection launch.
Wow. What a stunning collection. Wouldn't you agree?

As of late I was feeling rather blue that I hadn't been a part of the London Fashion Week buzz this September, and have been itching to go to a show for quite some time. Completely out of the blue, I received an email inviting me to come along to Dajana Basic's first wedding dress collection launch night, at Blackall Studios, Shoreditch. Naturally I jumped at the chance! 
The collection was based around macarons, and the idea that wedding gowns don't have to be pure white all of the time, a concept that I hadn't even considered for my own dress, until now. The 8 dress line up included delicate lace, incredible tailoring, unusual pattern cutting techniques and sweet accents of pastel colours and pearls - it genuinely made me want to get married tomorrow just so I can parade around like a princess fairy all day in one of her dresses.
My favorite has to be the lilac, I just love the lace overlay and detailing, what do you think? 
Nothing in this collection has been over-looked and based on the reaction of the guests, every aaaah, and aaawwww, suggest that this young designer going a long, long way, so watch this space. And if wedding bells are ringing in your life right now, I'd definitely go and check out her gorgeous designs. And make me a bridesmaid. Thanks.

A big thank you to the lovely Marta for getting in touch, and everyone I met for being so darn lovely.

Now... where's my ring Matthew?!

I've been on the hunt for Sleek blushes ever since I saw them being hyped around the bloggersphere. I'd been in Boots a few times and had a search with no luck, until yesterday in Westfield, when I happened to be in Boots again, I thought I'd ask. Yeah, so Sleek is exclusive to Superdrug. Akward. That would make sense as to why I couldn't find them then...
When I finally got to the concession, I had forgotten completely which shade I had originally wanted, so did the standard 'lets just swatch everything on my hand and look insane' blogger ritual. 
I settled on this gorgeous pinky-brown shade, aptly named Pomegranate. It's a strong berry colour with slight flecks of gold that give a very subtle shimmer to work as a highlight. 
I've never used them before, so completely underestimated how pigmented they actually are. Lets just say when I first put it on I looked like I'd just been slapped across the face with a wet fish. Not so good. Needless to say a lot of buffing was done. In the lighting of my bedroom, it looks a lot subtler than in the flesh, but the darker images made me look ill. So this will do! I've never been much of a blush girl, I'm more of a bronzer-holic, so maybe I just need to work on my technique a tad... Any tips?
On a second note... I really, really need to dye my hair dark again, not really feeling this yellow look so much. Thoughts?
