Bring on the Bootsale!


On Friday I scuttled down to Westfield White City, after accepting an invitation to check out their current Car Boutique event which has been in full swing since Tuesday. The Atrium has been transformed, housing extremely lavish looking, customised Mercedes and selected stores are showcasing their hot picks for AW11. The finest in men and women's fashion, footwear and accessories are amongst this modern day twist of the traditional boot-sale. 




Although I have a love for fashion, I have to admit that it's coordinating make up looks to my outfits, that really get me excited. If you appreciate my love for all things beauty-related, then you'll know that as soon as I spied items on the rails that I took a fancy to, I was already teaming them up with various beauty products, which were running through my mind. 



I figured this would be the perfect opportunity to share some of my favourite pieces which I spotted at Westfield's Car Boutique and alos let you know some of my make up must haves for AW11. 

Lady in Red 


These shoes screamed out to me the moment I saw them! Such a perfect red, with the right balance of brightness and boldness, just beautiful. The suede finish instantly had me dreaming about red matte lips, enough to make a statement yet still classic and classy. My shade? MAC's Lady Danger together they make the perfect pair! Check them out on the River Island website now.

Animal Mania 



Animal prints have made yet another comeback this year, with leopard print majorly on the prowl. Available in every colour, texture and on almost every item - coats, scarves, shoes, whatever goes I say! 
I have always been a fan animal prints, regularly injecting it in my outfits and I think this Autumn/Winter will be no exception. Why not flutter these lashes with fun feathers, whilst rocking the print of the season.


Leopard lashes available from Shu Uemura/House of Fraser, Westfield White City. 

Lashings of Leather 



Leather never dates. It's timeless, and can be either edgy or sophisticated - depending on the look you wish to achieve. From the sight to the smell of it, leather makes me want to grab for my eyeliner and release my inner rock chick! And what other way to do just that, than with my favourite gel liner by Inglot available in Westfield White City and now HERE on their new online store. It's such an intense, vivid black, which glides on effortlessly and stays put throughout the day. I can't get enough of it!



Looking to take eye liner to the next level? Then check out Christian Dior's Backstage adhesive Velvet liner. Not only is velvet one of the key fabrics for autumn, these eyeliner adeshives give you that fun, fierce finish without the fuss. Available directly from Dior.

Gaga for Gold 



I was so excited to see gold was a prominent, focal colour for this autumn. I love everything about gold, it's just so luxurious and glamorous. I enjoyed viewing the different finishes on show, which had me reaching out and taking a closer look.  My thoughts ran away with me and Sleek's Molten Metal in Pewter/Gold Leaf came to mind. The texture and finish of this is so smooth and the colour is beautiful. Although this is marketed as a creme eye shadow, I like using it to accentuate my cheekbones, so they glisten with radiance when they hit the light - gorgeous! 


Sleek Molten Metal is available to buy HERE.



What other way to accessorise than with a new fragrance for autumn. My pick? The ever so dark, mysterious and deliciously sexy Black Orchid by Tom Ford. With notes of Bergamot, Ylang-Ylang and Orchid, complimented by Sandalwood and Vanilla, Black Orchid is definitely the one. This sensual scent is enough to make you give your other bottles the boot!

Tom Ford Black Orchid EDP 50ml is available HERE at House of Fraser.

Oh and let's not forget our nails, ladies! Admittedly, gold polish can be a bit tricky to wear for some, but I defy the gold Nail Glitter by Gosh, lot to leave your nails looking fabulous. With Christmas just around the corner, it makes nails look fun and festive when layered over a polish shade of your choice.



Available from Superdrug

Wrap it Up 


Nail art is here to stay and won't be taking a back seat this season. Want to make an impact with your nails? Then look no further than Nail Rock Nail Decals. These printed paws are all you'll need to make your nails stand out from the crowd. I am loving these wraps - they're effortless, long lasting and look great.  


Available to buy HERE at Topshop. 

I hope you've enjoyed my beauty hot picks for AW11. Here I am, in what should be autumnal October with a scarf wrapped around my neck. Instead, the sun is shining furiously and I'm dressed as if I'm sat on a Caribbean beach! Autumn couldn't feel further away right now, but there's no harm in preparing for the colder days, which will no doubt arrive when we least expect them to. 

Lots of Love
