Gaultier and Food









This Easter for me was all about two things- Gaultier and Food ;)

The talk between Jean Paul Gaultier and Fashion Editor, Suzy Menkes at the Barbican Hall was awe-inspiring! The guy certainly has character and carries himself in a way that is charming, down-to-earth and insanely passionate!

I was also working throughout the whole holiday, which absolutely did not suck when you have an Easter hunt happening in the stock room! Oh yes, I indeed got my hands on a milk chocolate egg with mini jelly beans...ah sure did taste good :D

Plus we had a little bake-off, which obviously meant my Oreo cupcakes had to make an appearance! Google the recipe and it will definitely change your life :P

And lastly ordered my very first graze box!

I'd love to hear what you guys got up to during Easter! Hope you had a great one :D

Another guilty haul

Bag: Zara 
 'I love using this as a grab handbag.
The shorter straps placed on the shorter sides of the rectangle causes a crashing leather dip'

This month I decided to treat myself to a couple of cheeky purchases...placing quite a bit of emphasis on the 'couple' in that sentence! For some odd reason, it has taken me 8 long years for me to eventually find myself drooling over the Balenciaga Harness Platform Boot; and so after a serious pry on ebay, I got my hands on these amazing dupes!

 
Body Souffle: Boots
'Smells amazing!'

 
Face Moisturiser: Boots
'All time favourite. Should steer away...but not just yet...'

 
Gel Foundation/ Serum: Boots
'Light coverage foundation which feels great on the skin!'

 
Shampoo/Conditioner: Boots
'Leaves your hair shiny and silky (believe it :D)'

 
Book: Amazon
'Can't wait to read this!'
 
 
Biscuit: Tesco
'OH MY...this is like frickin heaven!'
 
Hope you guys are all well,

Viva Glam I



It is a stolen item. But before you dial 999, it's actually just my sisters! I wanted to style an outfit around this name, which is 'Viva Glam' by Mac. It is a matte carmine red, which actually appears a lot darker than what it actually is, due to my poor and deceiving photography! Sorry! (Below is a true-to-colour swatch)

 
 
 I absolutely love this colour, though every time I wear it, I feel way too dressed up! Therefore, I steal it just for the evenings for an outfit like this ;)
 

Top, Skirt and Heels, ASOS
Earrings, Forever21
P.S Let me know what your favourite Mac evening shade is!
