Fashion Wish List: Fun at the Fair with Farfetch

Posted on June 27, 2017

Hi Guys!

Now I have to say, I don’t usually do competition posts any more, just because the chances of winning are so small, they never seem worth it. BUT, I was invited to take part in FarFetch’s latest competition, and with a £1000 prize up for grabs, I thought it was definitely worth a shot!

So, if you’re not aware of Farfetch, they’re a massive online store selling pretty much every designer fashion item you could want or need (plus they have some pretty awesome sales too). They’ve recently launched a new online magazine called The Style Guide, and in celebration of their beautiful editorial content, Farfetch have asked me to create a blog post inspired by one of their articles.

The article which particularly caught my attention was Brighton Fashion: Your Ultimate Guide. I went to Brighton a few years ago for my hen party, and I absolutely love the place. I really can’t rave about it enough. It’s such a wonderful city – dubbed the LGBTQ capital of the UK, Brighton is home to one of the largest Pride events in the country. It’s also full of quirky independent shops, vintage boutiques and of course the famous Brighton Pier. It’s definitely a place worth visiting if you haven’t already.

In terms of style, you’ll find a real eclectic mix in Brighton. There’s an underlying sense of fun and escapism – which I think is why I love it there so much. So with this in mind, I’ve put together a little wish list inspired by Brighton…

I’d love to hear what you think? I hope you enjoyed my post xxx

Cohorted May Beauty Box | Review

Posted on May 11, 2015


Hi Guys!

My May Cohorted Beauty Box has literally just arrived, and I’m so excited I had to get everything photographed straight away so I could share it with you! This box is easily the best beauty box I’ve ever had, it contains four high end products, and I love them all!

  • Cargo Cosmetics Vintage Escape Eyeshadow Palette – Full size worth £35.00
  • Michael Kors Lip Lacquer in Dame – Full size worth £23.50
  • Dolce & Gabbana Lace Nail Lacquer in Perfection 220 – Full size worth £19.00
  • Too Faced Eyeshadow in Enchanted Garden – Full sized worth £15.00

Total value – £92.50.

Just WOW. I can’t get over how amazing this box is! For £19.99 this really is the bargain of the century! I’ve decided I’m not going to review the products individually right now, instead I’ll just give you an overview of each of them –

The Cargo Cosmetics Vintage Escape Eyeshadow Palette is easily the stand out product here, I’ve been wanting to try Cargo for a while so I was over the moon to find this in the box. It comes packaged in an unusual faux leather casing, with a magnetic closure and an internal mirror. This palette contains a selection of neutral shimmer and matte eyeshadows, and the shade selection is just beautiful. The 12 shades include smokey nudes, browns and charcoals in a range of light through to very dark colours. There’s no shades too bright or out there in this palette, so this would be perfect for natural day-to-night eye looks. I definitely want to dedicate a post to reviewing this palette properly so look out for it coming up shortly!

The Michael Kors Lip Lacquer lipstick is also beautiful, it comes in a metallic gold case, with the Michael Kors logo embossed in the lipstick bullet. This really is a beautiful luxury product. The shade Dame is also right up my street. It’s a lovely deep berry red, with tiny flecks of glitter – perfect for a statement lip.

The Dolce & Gabbana Lace Nail Lacquer looks to be the perfect nude shade. Perfection 220 is a light creamy beige. It looks fairly thick and opaque but I’ll have to try it out before I can let you know my final verdict. The packaging is of course beautiful, with Dolce & Gabbana’s logo in metallic gold over a lace printed lid.

And lastly the Too Faced Exotic Colour Eyeshadow. You may remember one of these in March’s box. This shade is Enchanted Garden, a high shimmer coffee brown shade. Again this looks beautiful, and it’s a completely universal colour so it’ll definitely suit all skin tones. If the formula is anything like  Copper Peony from March’s box, I know I’m going to love it.

Cohorted really have pushed the boat out with this box, I’m still stunned by the amazing brands and products that they’ve included. I will be reviewing everything separately over the coming weeks so please keep an eye out!

You can check out Cohorted’s previous boxes here – AprilMarch and February.

Did you sign up for May’s box? I’d love to hear what you think!
