London Fashion Week Edeline Lee A/W Collection

Turned out collars, oversized jackets and square brocade designs... the Edeline Lee A/W collection really caught our eyes at London Fashion Week. We have only started to put away our heavy jackets and boots and prepare for the coming spring months and now we can not wait for the winter time to roll around again. 

Canadian born Edeline Lee is a firm favourite of women in the art world. Her collections incorporate feminine shapes with clean modern lines and precise attention to detail are shown through her range. 

Her A/W 2014-2105 line brings a range of bold prints, block colouring and asymmetrical lines to the catwalk in a collection that is both modest and yet contemporary. 

All hail the beloved plimsol... the fashion God's have been good to us this year and this winter our feet will be forever grateful. This means that we can all put away those stilettos and pull out our comfy and now stylish plimsols. 

We have one more day until we say goodbye to London Fashion Week. Have you been inspired by what you have seen on the catwalk this year? Or have you fallen in love with a new designer?

Bobbi Brown Old Hollywood Lipstick Review

I don't know about you, but I am normally not a big fan of red lipstick. If you don't find the right colour to suit you.... it can go disastrously wrong... trust me!

Over the past couple of weeks I have heard a lot about Bobbi Brown's Old Hollywood range and in particular their red lipstick. So I thought I would conquer my fear and try it out.

I love Bobbi Brown makeup! The packaging is beautiful and they have a timeless elegance to them. Looks great in my makeup bag too!

Before applying lipstick, I always make sure that my lips are in a good condition i.e not cracked or dry so that the colour will stay on all night long. I usually exfoliate my lips by mixing Vaseline and sugar. This works as a great DIY exfoliator to remove dead skin cells and leaves your lips feeling soft and smooth.

To make my lips look fuller I used a red lip liner and gently outlined my lips. Next I applied the lipstick. It is extremely easy to apply unlike other lipsticks and covers your lips very well. With the lipstick now firmly on, I used a clear pressed powder (miss sporty £1.50- bargain) to help it set and last longer..... and voilĂ !

I would definitely purchase a Boobi Brown lipstick again. For £19.00 they might be a bit pricey but you can't put a price on quality and this product is definitely worth it.

Bobbi Brown have a wide range of lipsticks in all shades and colours. Shop today! Don't miss out... you won't look back.
