3 Gothic Makeup Trends to try this Fall/Winter


There is something about the autumn months that just scream out "gothic," and "baroque" to me, and maybe it's because of Halloween end of this month, Bonfire Night beginning of November. Maybe it's just nostalgia, as this time of year reminds me of those dark, winter train journeys - and just to add to the mood, I remember reading Bram Stoker's Dracula to kill time!

Keep it Simple with Olivia Palermo!

Olivia Palermo, one of the most effortless style icons out there, shows us how to wow in a chic yet wearable look.

I love black and white together, and whilst I am used to wearing suits for work (which involves either a pair of trousers and blazer or pencil skirt with blazer), it is refreshing  to see how a suit can still be worn outside of the office!

An embellished jacket, white blouse and super short skirt is also perfect for a Saturday out with the girls. Whether it's shopping or lunch, don't forget the pumps!

Bronze Smokey Eye For Everyday

A bronze smokey eye can be so versatile and wearable, and apropriate for everyday or even for a date!
For this look I am mainly using matte brown eyeshadow and a hint of shimmer. Then to accentuate the shape of the eye, I am using eyeliner and kohl.

Autumn Wishlist

Autumn has quickly come round, and as the temperature is cooling and the leaves are turning orange, I welcome the new season with a new wishlist! This might sound strange, but I am looking forward to autumn events such as Halloween, Bonfire night, Thanksgiving (if American hehe) and ultimately the Christmas season! It might be too soon to think about Christmas, but considering it is almost the end of September, let's face it, it will come round in the blink of an eye!

Here, I share with you which products I am looking forward to this Autumn.

Cute Hairstyle : Side Braid

Whether it is a super sleek, super long fishtail braid, or a traditional mid length loose braid, I think that the side braid is one of the most versatile hairstyles out there.

It can be worn simply for every day at work or college as a smart look, or it can be wild yet cute for a casual everyday look.

Rihanna has even taken the side braid to the red carpet!
Here are my favourite side braid looks and my attempt recreating this with Bombay Hair Extensions.
