Accessory update: Bodychain jewellery

Say goodbye to long pendant necklaces and welcome body jewellery into your wardrobe. Now, you may be wondering why on earth you would want to adorn your body with chains. At first I was a little apprehensive about this look but like all trends, if it's done well it works. 

Layer over a white tee for an edgy day-time look or accessorise your LBD for evening glamour that is simple yet effective.

I love the elegance of each piece and my favourite has to be 'Aeon' worn with the heart-shaped black dress.

If you are likely to invest in statement accessories but have a smaller budget, these high street numbers should be on the top of your wish list:

Hope you all have a very Happy Christmas!

My Week with Marilyn Beauty Tutorial

Here's my first attempt at filming a beauty tutorial which is based on the film,My Week with Marilyn. I've been a little Marilyn mad recently (see previous post) and decided I would try to encapsulate this iconic beauty look. The bold brows,shimmering eyes and statement red lips are perfect for parties over Christmas time, and this make-up routine can even be worn during the day. Tone down the lipstick to a rosy pink shade or wear a lip balm if you want to reduce the impact.

Watch Sali Hughes Video via The Guardian for how to create the perfect red lips:

So here's a list of the products I featured:
Dior Forever (Shade 23)
Clinique Airbrush Concealer
Benefit Georgia Peach powder
Mac Prep and Prime powder
Estee Lauder Blusher in Nude Rose
Eye Palette and Highlighter by Elizabeth Arden
Dior Red Lipstick in Dolce Vita (bold statement lips)
Chanel Rouge Coco Mademoiselle Lipstick,05 (lighter shade for daytime, if preferred)
No.7 Beautiful Brown pencil,colour 10.
