Issa S/S2015

September 16, 2014   -   0 comments   -  

It’s no secret that Issa has gone through a drastic make-over. After her second season, Blue Farrier is keen to show that Issa is no one-trick pony. The models sashayed down the runway in graphic printed separates with splashes of colour in poolside worthy mules. The recurring curve pattern looked like it had come straight from a Clyfford Still painting. Fast-forward a few looks and a graphic horse pattern appears (she previously worked at Chloe after all) which surprisingly marries the curved line incredibly well.

Review: bareMinerals BareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation

September 16, 2014   -   0 comments   -  

Foundations scare me. There’s just no way around it. I find faces caked in foundation hideously unattractive. To me, beautiful skin has different tones, freckles and signs of life.

I have never tried anything from bareMinerals; their powders just never appealed to me. I prefer a more dewy look then matte finish so it was only after hearing lengthy rave reviews on their latest liquid foundation that I began to take note. I picked this up on my final day in California from Sephora (find it here) with the accompanying brush and after two weeks of using this religiously I am the newest member of the club.

Review: Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz

September 8, 2014   -   0 comments   -  

Apparently I’m late on the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz band wagon.

I’ve always had good brows; I’d go so far as saying on par with Cara Delevigne. After spending my early teen years trying to tame the beast and recreating what can only be describe as a Marlene Dietrich brow I’m lucky enough to say that they’ve grown back with a vengeance. Day-to-day I don’t do anything with my brows other than use a clear gel to keep them in place, however on weekends I sometimes feel the need for added drama. I used to reach for my trusted MAC Brun eyeshadow to do the job however after taking the plunge and picking up this god-send in Sephora I’ve found a new holy grail brow product.

Review: Girlactik

September 2, 2014   -   0 comments   -  

As soon as I got wind of this hot new beauty brand, I had to get involved. Girlactik is little known in the UK right now but not for long. During my annual summer pilgrimage home to California I was inundated with reviews, magazine articles and tweets about various holy grail products courtesy of Girlactik.

I’ve amassed a good selection of products to give me a real idea of what the brand has to offer and after using them religiously for a few weeks I’m ready to share my findings with the world (aka. the readers of SLSstyle).

REVIEW: Sara Happ The Lip Scrub

If this little box doesn’t bring joy to your heart, you’re loitering dangerously close to Scrooge territory. I’ve been longing to test out Sara Happ’s lip scrub which is practically impossible to find outside of the US. I assumed that lip scrubs were all the same; flavoured sugar that ended up becoming a light snack. I used to swear by Lush’s lip scrub (I still highly recommend this) but could never quite talk myself into spending $25+ on a pot of sugar when a toothbrush could do the trick for a fraction of the cost. I couldn’t have been more wrong.

Buckle up girls, autumn is swiftly approaching and whilst I’m not ready for the start of another grim and gloomy London winter I am excited for transitional dressing. Summer should have left us all with a healthy glow and the turn in weather should be no reason for us to hide the beautiful tan that we spent months nurturing over summer. Miniskirts with sandals and a light jacket is the perfect way to slowly wave goodbye to summer, as the days get shorter, the nights get darker and the temperature drops just be sure to add a few extra layers (tights, a cardigan, maybe even a woven scarf).

Summer Beauty Favourites

August 10, 2014   -   0 comments   -

For most of us, summer means our beauty routine goes back to basics (unless you were the girl I was sitting next to on the beach in St Tropez kitted out in fake lashes, a full red lip and more clip in hair extensions than at a Haifa Wehbe concert). Even for a night out I prefer letting sun kissed skin shine through and using minimal products. I have a small selection of favourites that I’ve been toting around the world with me this summer that haven’t let me down thus far.

The Real Thing

August 8, 2014   -   0 comments   -  

I’ve gone through some enormous milestones in the past few months, a lot good and some devastating. It’s all lead me to the same conclusion; that we need to value the love we have in our lives and treat everyone with kindness and respect.

We live in a world filled with daily atrocities both on our doorstep and in the farthest away corners of the globe. I’m ashamed to say that at some point in my life I didn’t have the knowledge, understanding and compassion to view all people as equals, after all we are all cut from the same cloth regardless of our skin colour, race, religion, nationality, income and sexual preference. What makes us all so amazing is our differences and the choices that we make. It is our responsibility to celebrate our differences, learn from them and teach others the importance of respect. These things are lightyears more important than swinging the latest Chanel bag on your arm and buying a new pair of $1,200 shoes every week. So next time you find yourself consumed over what you read in the pages of Vogue, just stop and remember to show an act of kindness and love, it truly is the only thing that matters.

Psycle London

July 29, 2014   -   0 comments   -  

Something inexplicable has happened, I have become a gym addict. My mood slumps on my off days which I often have to force myself to have. Gyms have no longer become a place of pain and dread for me but a tool to feel fantastic, improve my body and release a boatload of stress. My gym routine varies from taking various pilates classes, boxing, spinning, weight training & conditioning and barre classes however after making the daily pilgrimage to my gym, it’s often nice to have a change of scene.

Barry’s Bootcamp was my first choice but the horrendous location, lack of parking and issues of paying to be yelled at quickly crushed that notion (on a side note it’s definitely time to open a location that doesn’t make you want to want to move to rural Shropshire after spending hours searching for a parking space or stuck in bumper-to-bumper traffic outside Euston). My next port of call was Psycle. I’m no stranger to spinning classes, one of the first places to visit on my list in Northern California was Soulcycle over Napa and in Dubai it was Flywheel over indoor skiing. Both were incredibly fun but tough workouts (the best kind).
