Give me colour- Outfit ideas with a boost of turquoise!

I wanted to share with you this latest purchase of mine- my big turquoise chunky necklace. I absolutely love it. It came in three shades- black, navy blue and turquoise. The black would have been a safer option but I opted for the brightest and a slight out of my comfort-zone choice. 

These are 3 outfit ideas I put together!

Who said I'm not fun look

I paired a tunic coral/watermelon pink top which has some gold detailing on the neckline with a brown jumper/cardi. I then added the necklace to give it that extra dimension and chic look to the outfit. 


I want a Holiday look 

Here's another idea with the same concept of wearing the turquoise necklace with a coral/watermelon pink.

In this instance I added a white longish top (so it can be worn on tights) with a coral/watermelon pink button up shirt with really nice detailing on the top and then added the necklace. This outfit really reminds me of the beaches or some tropical island where you can sit back and enjoy the nature. 

After work look 

My main concept behind this look was that when at work you have to be professional and it may be at some places you can wear statement pieces such as this, but in a lot of cases we aren't so lucky.

By keeping the necklace in your bag, as soon as you finish work and are ready to go out you can add this necklace to your outfit and there you have it- a more relaxed and fun going outfit is created with just the small hint of colour. 

Hope you guys found this useful! Let me know if you have any ideas like this. Keep smiling :)

Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye Cream Review

As most of you know I had blogged about purchasing a large amount of Bobbi Brown products when I was recently in NYC. One of the products I had purchased was this Hydrating Eye Cream. I have had a chance to try it out over the last 3 months and therefore I can do an honest opinion of what I think about it. 

I love Bobbi Brown products as most of you who follow my blog know. Absolutely love her foundations and makeup especially her SPF Foundation which I've done a review about.

This eye cream is quite 'thin' and not so thick in nature. It glides on fairly easily under the eyes, so you don't end up rubbing and tugging (which can cause further broken capillaries) at your eyes. 

Do I like this product? And will I be purchasing this again? 
Probably not. I'm sorry to say (sorry Bobbi Brown) that I did not enjoy this product and I actually didn't find any change in my dark circles or any effect around my eyes whatsoever. I luckily bought this in New York so it was half the price for what I would've purchased it here which is around $60 AUD. I did wear this product day and night. When I apply the product yes it feels hydrating but nothing like 'OMG MY EYES FEEL SO GOOD'. I think any other product has the same effect. Everyone's skin is different, this product didn't suit me and also I saw it didn't work for Allthatglitters on youtube.

I am yet to find the perfect eye cream. I was really excited and dying to try this product for a long time but unfortunately this product did not live up to my standards and I would not splurge out to buy this product again. 

This product may work for you but it didn't work for me.

What's your favourite eye cream?

My new MAC products!

I know Ive been MIA for a while but believe it or not I have not stopped my shoppinh fetish. I have bought so many new products over the past few months that it may take a while to get all the products on my blog. I wanted to start with my recent purchase. I have never tried MAC products before and I know that almost every youtuber/blogger has raved about MAC products and are religious users of the brand.

So I thought why not add it to my collection. I bought 4 products. These include:
Cranberrry Eyeshadow
Rubenesque Paint Pot
Hush Colour Cream Base
Fake Lashes 

In order from left to right: Rubenesque paint pot, cranberry eyeshadow and Hush cream colour.

Here are a few swatches on my skin colour. Im realy happy with the choice of the paint pot in rubenesque as well as the cranberry eyeshadow. Not so happy with Hush. I actually wanted another shade but the assistant at the MAC counter told me otherwise. I should have swatched it in store to see it on my skin tone, but I didnt and I actually think it's a bit too light for my skin and I look more 'oily' then 'glowy'.

Fake lashes! My first pair :). Im really unsure how I'll wear them. Question for those who wear lashes- do u apply mascara on them once you add them on?

Hope you enjoyed my mini haul of my new MAC products!

Keep smiling :)
