All the Fashion Related Reality

Recently there has been a lot of incredible TV shows and documentaries on TV representing the world of Fashion, retail, design, modelling and all. Being a total Fashion addict, of course I have found and have been keeping up with them all.

The first one of the lot is a reality show; Dash Dolls. It is essentially about the running and girls who work at the Kardahians sisters’ store; Dash. I’ll be honest at first about this show I thought ‘Oh Lord another thing on the Kardashians, although I do have a secret love for them too! But…since watching it I have been loving it! It is of course about the managers and overlookers of the store, as the Kardashian sisters obviously cannot always been there, twins and best friends of Khloe, Malika and Khadija. As well as all of the other girls that work at the stores, as sales assistants, as buyers, as managers and as visual merchandisers as well as their social media and advertising campaigns. So a lot of the little bits about the store are amazing as well as a team of people who work in fashion get on together. Plus the fact that all of the girls are stunning and dress incredibly makes it pretty amazing to watch as well…plus of course the dramas and gossip; alwaus makes a show.

The second show was a documentary I watched on London Fashion Week which was on BBC as well as still avaliable on BBC Iplayer as well as BBC catch up. It featured successful model Abbey Clancy going to three main catwalk events at London Fashion Week a few weeks ago as well as a lot of famous faces within the likes of designers, fashion PR mavens, journalists, models etc. The three shows included Hunter, Sibling and Giles.The documentary showed all of the shows as well as the creativity behind them and thoughts of Abbey as well as others on the hot pieces straight off the catwalk. It also focused on the opinions of high-end fashion and the importance of keeping high-end fashion in the industry as well as high street and less bank breaking brands. As well as speaking about the excitment of Fashion Week, British Fashion and the creativity and interest of runway shows. I have actually just found out whilst writing this that there is another version of this documentary featuring Grace Victory and her top favourite shows from London Fashion Week 2015; so I am definately off to watch that.

The final show is again on E! and it is a brand new series of show again, House Of DVF. In which 10 young fashionistas compete for the dream job to work and design for legendary designer and fashion icon Diane Von Furstenburg. This show is a real insight into not only these young fashion lovers trying to break into the industry and what to do to be professional and what not to do, in a sense learning about how to break into the career and make people interested in you. As well as learning about working as a team and getting along with them, as well as being entertained by their drama. However it also features a lot about the House of DVF brands, how they design, their image, how Diane has created her successful house, how she operates the brand as well as herself, insights to campaigns, photo shoots, fashion events etc. One of my favourite moments from the show was when Diane sat the girls down to look at and essentially criticise their designs; which was incredible to see how their designs were recieved as well as the imagery and inspiration behind them as well as what Diane is looking for within her clothing for her brand. Some of the other moments including them pitching their ideas, giving great ideas for fashion communication and campaigns as well as market research for trends and representation of the DVF brand. The best thing about this show is that Diane actually features in the show as well as the girls; giving her opinions and private voiceovers with her. I cannot wait for the rest of this show to envolve; right now it is up to episode 4 so not far along at all, so make sure you go check it out!

Rating for Drama – 9/10  Ratings for characters – 8/10    Ratings for Fashion – 10/10

So go check out some of these shows and let me know what you think of them or whether you know of any other fashion related shows, documentarys or even clips or videos on youtube; I love a good youtuber. Until next time, live, breathe and now watch fashion.

Colour Me Right;Max Factor CC Colour Corrector Review

We all get them patches of skin that we just don’t like…whether it is redness around our nose, veins, under eye circles or anything else we can pick ourselves apart for. Recently all over the beauty tutorials, Instagram 1 minute makeover accounts and of course the Kardashians (How else would they look so flawless?) I have been seeing all this colour correcting, people going way beyond contouring into putting pink, green and yellow all over their faces. I questioned whether this method actually worked, so I decided to find out for myself.

I went into Superdrug and purchased these three CC colour correctors by Max Factor, green for redness, yellow for under eye and dark circles and a highlight. I have now been using these for a few days and decided to give my opinion for those of you out there like me who need a real girl’s opinion. ccI’m going to review each corrector separately taking into consideration, where I used them on my own skin, the blending ability, reaction with other products e.g foundation/powder as well as the sensitivity, packaging, price and all that jazz.

Let’s start with the green colouring for redness. I personally do have quite a warm and red toned skin so I was really curious as to whether this product would satisfy my skin. I used this colour on the sides of my nose, under my nose just above my cupids bow as well as on any spots I had. I blended this in with my finger instead of a brush as the warmness of the skin on the hands tends to make consistencies such as this product blend better on my skin personally. It blended incredibly; I have to say I was a little worried I was going to end up with green blotches on my face where I had used the product and no real redness recovery at all. It really has reduced the redness on my skin.

The yellow colouring for under eye circles is incredible! This has to be my favourite, I used this under my eyes which meant I didn’t have to use concealer, as well as it lasting all day which sometimes my concealers don’t. It also acted as a natural highlight under my eyes giving me that under eye look that the Kardashians really do have, which I thought I would never be able to achieve with a drugstore product. I also used this on my brow bone to conceal the line of my brows which worked amazing as well as blending in incredibly to my brow bone leaving no excess dramatic colour.

The highlight, I have to say is the one I was least impressed with as I don’t think it really did anything, I was lucky enough to purchase these colour correctors during a Max Factor 3 for 2 deal meaning I got this one free however if I hadn’t, I don’t think I would have bothered with this one, simply because I felt like it didn’t really show on my cheeks although it did do a good job at highlighting my nose and underneath my bottom lip but the main area I wanted it to highlight (my cheeks) it just wasn’t noticeable.

ccc2The whole set of colour correctors as a whole, I love the packaging in the fact that they are a crayon as well as loving their sensitivity as I do have rather sensitive skin to a majority of products and using a product with a creamy crayon consistency such as this did worry me, but there was no trouble whatsoever. The colours lasted all day and didn’t fade away leaving me with blotches or patches like I thought they might. More to the point they really do what they say on the packaging which a lot of products of this nature don’t. The only thing I would suggest is that although I think that having them to buy separately is great as not all people would need all three due to different skin types, but if like me you did want all three, to pay £8.99 per corrector seemed rather a lot, I would love to see these three in a set to save people like me who need all three buying them individually.

Overall I love, love, loved these three correctors and am happy to save I am now on the colour correcting wave and am loving it.

ccc

Let me know if you have any tips for colour correcting, I am always looking for new make up tips or if you do purchase this product, let me know what you think.

After 5 years of waiting, Pretty Little Liars have finally revealed that A is….

[MAJOR SPOILET ALERT AHEAD]

 We don’t know whether to be extremely excited or extremely disappointed on last night’s Season 5 finale of PPL but we do know there is one word to describe ‘Welcome to the dollhouse’ Creepy…

The suspense has been killing us and thousands of fans across the globe with the trending hash tag at the end of last weeks episode revealing #BigAReveal

But was it really a reveal?

On one hand we know who A is but on the other we have no idea who the hell they are? In case you don’t know Pretty Little Liars is a hit TV series following the lives of four teenage girls involved with a few others who are being targeted and harassed by someone, they have no clue who and neither do we – A.

So after 123 episodes, 123 texts from A and 9 deaths, this was meant to be the Big A Reveal.

So what did it reveal?

This episode revealed that A in fact has a nAme, and it is ChArles. Charles most likely appears to be Alison’s brother Jason’s twin, therefore also half-brother to Spencer. With likely motives on Alison and Spencer for their parents hiding him away. It’s all very confusing but now we have to wait until summer and the final season of Pretty Little Liars to finally understand the mess.

So what does Pretty Little Liars Boss Marlene King have to say about the whole affair?

Marlene King reveals that she is excited about the whole motive of this A as well as the identity and having the audience finally getting the answers as to why?

She also reveals that she has been dropping hints throughout the seasons featuring season 3 episode ‘Now you see me now you don’t’’ the mime’s name is Charlemagne, hinting at the name ‘Charles’As well as a string of twitter hints such as ‘Get ready for a bromance’ etc.

However it also has been revealed by Marlene King that this may actually not be the end, revealing that this is the #BigAReveal but not the #UberAReveal

Why O Why would they do this to us?

So I guess we will just have to be patient, but for now go ahead and follow @ABCFpll as well as @imarleneking for all the official upcoming news on your favorite suspense story. And if you haven’t yet watched pretty little liars, get started with all 124 episodes on Netflix…Get addicted like the rest of us.

Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award!

sisterhood-of-the-world-bloggers-award

After less than two weeks of blogging, i have been nominated for the Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award! by Mimi’s Beauty. She’s amazing, check out her reviews and beauty tips here http://beautyandmi.wordpress.com.

The Rules:
– Thank the blogger who nominated you, linking back to their site.
– Put the award logo on your blog.
– Answer the ten questions they have set you.
– Make up ten new questions for your nominees to answer.
– Nominate ten people

These are the questions that Mimi asked me:
What is your favourite eye-shadow palette?
my favourite eyeshadow palette would be the bodyshop brown eyeshadow palette as i think they are great colours for everyday that blend so well with each other as well as other eyeshadows.

Drugstore or High-End make-up brands?
I really do think it depends on the product. Due to my sensitive skin i usually end up using more high end make up brands rather than drugstore brands simply because they use better ingredients for my skin but i do believe that their are some products in drugstore brands which are far better and far more effective than higher end and more importantly more expensive brands.
Favourite Concealer?
I don’t actually wear concealer frequently but when i do i believe that the mac moisturising cover concealer is amazing. it really blends well with your skin, foundation and powder as well as not getting stuck in the creases of your skin especially under the eyes. My favourite thing about this concealer is that you only have to use the tiniest bit for coverage and it isn’t thick and gloomy either but still covers the areas you need it to.
What’s the best mascara you own?
Although it is expensive the best mascara i own by far is the benefit real eyes mascara! It is amazing. i’ll admit i have only been using it recently but i can notice a change in my eyelashes and have been told by other people since using it that they look longer as well. It provides a thick cottage without being gloomy like it literally glides on. I actually bought mine for £2 at a benefit charity event where as the smaller size is actually £9 in boots. But omgoshhhh! so worth it chicks
What’s the best product you own under £4?
The seventeen wet look liquid eyeliner. omgosh this is literally the best glide on mascara i have ever had, it literally glides on and stays on all day! I’ve tried number seven, chanel, mac eyeliners and none are as good as this, for under £4! BARGAIN BUY!
If you could only wear one type of product e.g. foundation, mascara, lipstick etc. for the rest of your life, what would you choose?
definitely MASCARA! all the way, my lashes would be pin pricks without it, then again i am a lipstick lover
Biggest weakness when buying make-up? Definitely lipsticks, you can never have to many shades of lipstick
What’s your favourite shade of lipstick/gloss? This is difficult, last year i was really into my reds however this summer i’ve been very hooked on my pinks so i’d go for pink at the moment but that doula all change.
Coloured eye-liner – yay or nay? Depends on the event but i’m gonna go yay, why not?
What’s your everyday skincare routine?
I use my blue corn 3 in 1 skin mask by body shop twice a week but in between then i wash my skin with dermalogica ultra calming gel every day and then moisturise with aveeno cream and occasionally Jo malone vitamin E. Although some of these are expensive products you can get cheaper versions. The most important thing for me is keeping my skin clean and moisturising as i have rather dry skin rather than spotty.

BodyShop Review

So today me and my best friend went shopping for some bits and we went into the body shop to look at their products, as I’ve been advised to recently. 

We went in there to look at the BB cream and primer which is actually amazing, it automatically adapts to your skin colour, although i didn’t purchase this today due to having to finish my recent bb cream/foundation. However i need to get there quick as at the moment their doing a deal in which you get the primer and the bb cream for a total of £20. 

So today i purchased the ‘blue corn 3 in 1 deep cleansing mask‘ I’ve just used this face mask which i was told was good for dry to oily skin and would exfoliate and purify skin whilst preventing spots to a minimum degree. The mask felt so smooth whilst still exfoliating whilst putting it on. It was a tad tingly, i’m not going to lie. However it feels incredible on my skin, then when i took it off, my skin felt even better! 

My skin is quite dry and i suffer from eczema so finding a product that has natural products in and doesn’t mess with my skin is rather difficult for me, as usually all the products are rather expensive. However for this pot of face mask i paid £10 and received 30% off with my body shop rewards card which i also received today. 

IMG_2014

When i took this face mask to the till, the assistant asked me if i wanted to purchase a rewards card for £5. Although it seems like a lot, every time you use this card when you purchase a body shop product you receive 30% off as well as receiving a free body wash. Not only that but when you receive 4 stamps you receive a £5 product free and 8 stamps is a £10 product, as well as free gifts on your birthday! DEFINATELY worth it.

IMG_2018

i really love do love the body shop at the moment, not only because their products are perfect for my skin type but also because they are good for any skin type and are of such a reasonable price.  I really do urge yo to try them, also they smell amazinngggg!
