Summer fun

Ah summer's here and holiday time has officially begun (yay)! It's one of my favourite seasons for shopping because there's so much bright, fun colours around and the accessories selections are second  to none. This summer I'm feeling a little more adventurous with my wardrobe, especially in terms of jewellery that I'll be wearing, so I thought it would be only fitting to share the summer accessories I've been absolutely loving at the moment, that I think would look great whether you're at the beach or chilling at home in the sun. Read on to find out what they are!

2.Body Necklaces

Grazia x Facebook: A Chance to (Literally) Live Edit The Magazine!

Guys I just came across this brilliant event happening this month (13th - 17th June) that would be perfect for any budding journalists and future magazine editors out there! Well Grazia UK, which is a popular weekly fashion and lifestyle magazine, is collaborating with Facebook to create an event called 'The Live Edition' giving you an opportunity to really shape how the magazine issue of that week will be, such as deciding the cover and editing the fashion pages. 
The Grazia editorial team will also be setting up shop in the Facebook offices for that week and with special events in the pipeline, you'll also have the opportunity to watch the magazine take shape through a live stream. If that wasn't enough, the magazine is also going to be giving some lucky readers the opportunity to join them for two special events at the Facebook HQ (ah exciting times)!

As this will be in conjunction with Facebook its super easy to get involved! If this definitely sounds like you're cup of tea, for more info all you have to do is simply like the Grazia Facebook page for updates and follow the other Grazia UK social media like twitter for special announcements!

Kenzo x H&M Collab Confirmed!

Today has definitely been filled with super exciting fashion related announcements being reported left, right and centre, but honestly I wouldn't have it any other way! The latest announcement from high street staple H&M is that they will be releasing a designer-highstreet collection in collaboration with one of fashions recently most in demand brands....(brace yourselves) KENZO.

Yeah Kenzo, the brand famed for their colourful prints and ingenously turning the tiger sweatshirt into a staple amongst many a fashion blogger, catapulting the brand into further success, will be teaming up with H&M for a collection that's slated to arrive in stores on 3rd November 2016. We can't wait!


NEWS Just In: Rihanna x Dior Sunglasses

Rihanna and Dior have been great collaborators which started with her first campaign in 2015 for the brand titled 'Dior Secret Garden'. Now a favoured ambassador of the brand, Riri can now add another string to her fashion bow because her new futuristically designed sunglasses collection with Dior has now been unveiled (yay)! The sunglasses are a flat-top shape with the frames featuring cut-out details along the sides with high shine metallic accents.

Back and better with new changes!

Hi there! remember me? Just kidding, but seriously I just haven't been blogging as regularly as I've wanted to because of a lot of factors including work and health and just a lack of good old inspiration. I started this blog as a way to express my love for fashion, share my thoughts on topics I'm passionate about and interact with people like you who enjoy talking about the same things! I think all things considered I've come to the realisation to not compare my blog to the fabulous blogs which I love, because it just ends up stifling you creatively if you let it, but to just continue writing about what inspires me personally and everything else will just hopefully fall into place: I hope you understand what I mean because I feel like rambling here! Anywho, what I'm trying to say is, be prepared for fresher and more inspired content and maybe a total redesign (definitely stay tuned).
More importantly I hope you've all been well and thanks :) Xx

Get the make-up look: Amanda Steele

Make-up and fashion youtuber Amanda Steele is this week's make-up look inspiration. Although she's only 16 she's a pro when it comes to her make up looks; guys her winged liner looks are literally on Adele status. Take a look below on achieving this look exclusively with drugstore products!


Eyebrows:


Eye's:

Primer


Base + Inner Corner 
(Base: The shade that's on the bottom row second from the right)
(Inner Corner: The shade on the top row first from the right)


On the crease

Eyeliner 



Base:

Highlighter:



(I always prefer to set the liquid highlighter with a light dusting of a powder formulation).
+
(This is also a perfect under brow highlighter!)

Contour:



Blusher:


(I would use the far right shade lightly for a healthy colour to the cheeks!)

Lips: 

(I prefer dabbing this on bit by bit for build able colour because I think it's quite nice to have a barely there lip to complement the pop of highlighter and keep the focus on the eyes!)




And that's the look guys! I'd love to see how you put your spin on this look so comment down below or post your look to twitter with the hashtag #ASteelemakeuplook!

Purple Reign 👑


I'm sure by now you've all seen the news that the music legend and fashion innovator Prince passed away yesterday. To me, he really was an inspiration in because he didn't conform to conventions both in his music and how he dressed. One of my all time favourite pictures of him is on the purple rain album cover (you know the one with the purple suit and curly faux hawk hairstyle) and being a big fan of his fashion I wanted to share my all-time favourite Prince fashion moments, so here goes.
