The woman herself talking about the story beyond her collection:

Model, Georgia-May Jagger (20), known as the hot face of Rimmel, Hudson Jeans and the 'golden girl of British fashion', is featured in a beautiful and intimate spread in the March issue of Harper's Bazaar, shot on the stunning shores of Biscayne Bay in Miami.
The stylist of the shoot, Vanessa Coyle, combined metallics (my favourite), luscious prints and 'barely-there' sheers from brands including Paco Rabanne, Jimmy Choo & Aurelie Bidermann, to create the ultimate sensual and feminine edge to some of this seasons hottest pieces.
Photographer, Alexi Lubomirski, does well in portraying the way Britain's favourite Rock and Roll princess has blossomed into the 'it girl' of the season! Job very well done from a fantastic team... No wonder they named the shoot 'Guilded Youth'!

Ford Model 'Kate King' features in this months Vogue Japan and images have blown me away. The editorial spread named “The Road to Tijuana”, features amazing colours, textures and was shot by world renowned photographer, Tommy Ton. Favourite brands featured include Missoni, Chloe & Micheal Kors. I absolutely love the safari inspired collection and was very happy to see some of the pieces featured here. Aurora Sansone did a FAB job styling, thumbs up!

Images of Beyonce post birth have been released after she attended a club in New York this week. 
She looks absolutely amazing and I'm loving her style, especially the clutch and jewellery! She wears a Red Alice Temperly dress, Ofira and Lorraine Schwartz Jewellery, an Alexander McQueen clutch and Christian Louboutin heels says popular blog RapUp.

These have grown on me, I love these new style of shoes called 'night  walk'. I saw images of these floating around last year and did a little research, surprisingly they are extremely comfortable!

I was recently going on and on about my recent purchase on my Twitter account, my Jesi Knomo London laptop bag. I absolutely love it, I literally prance around all day with it in my hand, it's my new baby lol!
Luckily, I was able to get it on discount as they were having their winter sale but they are still available on-line. It normally costs £115 but I actually bought mine for around £30-40 on the day, I'm still shocked because I wanted this since the day I saw them in Westfield's House of Fraser nearly 1 year ago!
Delivery was amazing too, it literally was there waiting outside my door 2 days later :)

Some more love designs they have are below:

Briefcase in Black Pebble
Black quilted laptop sleeve


Pippa Middleton also knows the way forward holding their Slim Laptop Sleeve with Strap lol! Love the styling!

1. MAC Brow Finisher - £11.50
This is a great tool for grooming your brows and provides a great hold so pencils/shadows used stay in place. I love this so much, but unfortunately my little sister (who is only 8 years old) watches my every move, tried to used it when I wasn't watching and broke it recently lol (she's so cute)! But its such a good product that I will be purchasing it again very soon.

2. MAC Select Cover Up Concealer in NW45 - £13.50
I was in need of a matte concealer with great coverage to use as an under eye cover up and heard alot about select cover up. After using it for about 3 weeks, I can say that it is the best concealer I have used so far. I like using it after applying my Garnier Caffine Eye Roll On. Initially, I worried about how long it would last due to the size of the package, however just a little drop goes very far and it tends to stay in place and lasts all day on my skin, so I am very pleased!

3. Hug Me Lipstick - £13.50
4. Ruby Woo Lipstick - £13.50

I have found my top 2 MAC lipsticks so far! One with a lustre finish and the other with a matte finish however they both roll on so smoothly, smell lush and are highly affordable for how long they have lasted me.

5. Mineralize Skin-Finish Bronzer in Gold Deposit - £21.50
I love bronzing powders alot more than blushes so I am very open to finding new ones, I just feel that they add a lovely glow to my skin and this one in particular glides on so smoothly and leaves a frosty metallic finish. I also use it as a subtle highlighter when contouring my face.

6. Blush Ombre in Azalea Blossom - £20.50
After having this applied to my skin, I fell in love! It is a new blush from Daphne Guinness' MAC make up range. It looks so flawless. I like it very much because it is a medium coverage blush and I am still on the way to feeling comfortable using blushes, perhaps because I haven't found a colour that I am in love with(lol) I combined the two (below) and got a very subtle, radiant but still very natural looking finish.

Just a little update! I was completely tired of the usual black hair so I decided to do another dye at the end on January. I ordered two packets very light coloured human hair extensions (they were literally a dark blond colour) from Additional Lengths and coloured them at home using Live Color XXL hair dye by Schwarzkopf (which I also used in my Ombre Hair Dye post)

I used 4 boxes of Live Colour XXL in the color Dark Spice 52
I absolutely love the colour! It's been about 2 weeks now and the colour hasn't faded at all. I decided to do a deep condition to soften up the hair yesterday and it came out even more smooth and silky! Thumbs up to Schwarzkopf hair dye again (Available in Boots/Superdrug)
