Schuh Spring/Summer 2014

Last weekend I attended the Schuh SS'14 Press Day to take a look at what they have on offer for the coming season.

The first thing I noticed when I walked into the room was the amount of beautiful colour, print and texture and some incredible statement heels. Nude, yellow, coral, pink and cobalt blue seemed to be the biggest colours. 

There was also a lot of metallic going on with chains, zip details, gold hardware and buckles.  It was great to see a heel height for everyone as I tend to stay well away from very high shoes, although I can appreciate how gorgeous they are at 5'9" I'm already tall enough and my feet plus high heels do not go well together. 

There were some beautiful lower court shoes as well as a lot of block heels, including an incredible pair with a lucite heel which I absolutely loved.

There were some amazing flats and sandals too including printed canvas shoes from Bucketfeet, metallic brogues from Red or Dead, black and white Schuh own brand sandals and the old reliable tan which is my go to colour for summer sandals.

I had my nails done with NCLA nail wraps in this amazing print by the lovely Pamela Laird. Thanks so much to Dom and Lucy from Schuh for a lovely afternoon, it was so much fun. I'm excited to take off my winter boots and get shopping for sandals. Although not yet because it's still freezing! 

What was you favourite pair?

I just recently joined Instagram and because I have been missing writing more personal lifestyle posts I thought I would start a bi-monthly feature where I post some of my Instagram photos so that I can share my day to day life with you. I always love these posts on other blogs and so I thought you might enjoy my version. Let me know what you think!

The Lipstick Tag

I was tagged to do this post by the lovely Sleep and Water. I don't usually do these kinds of things but since it was all about one of my favourite beauty products, I couldn't resist!


1. How many lipsticks do you own? 

You know it's bad when you have to go and count them. I have 42 of what I would consider lipsticks which includes liquid lipsticks but not balms, butters, stains or glosses.

2. What was the first lipstick you owned?

The first ever lipstick I owned was this crazy frosted blue colour that I think was from Miss Selfridge. My friend gave it to me when I was maybe 10/11. Very Joey from Friends. The first lipstick I bought myself was probably Rimmel Heartbreaker or Revlon Really Red, I'm not sure which was first. I was a gloss girl up to that point.


3. What is your favourite lipstick brand?

Definitely Revlon for the more inexpensive lipsticks and Estée Lauder for the higher end ones.

  4. What is your most worn lipstick?

MAC Russian Red or Revlon Really Red.


5. What is your favourite finish?

I definitely tend to prefer Mattes but mostly because they last longer and are less prone to bleeding, smudging and getting all over my teeth.

6. What was the last lipstick you bought?

Surprisingly this Kiko one when I was in Paris last November.


7. How many lip products do you currently have in your bag?

Two- the Kiko lipstick above which I wore today and my Caudalie Lip Conditioner. I rarely have more than two in my bag.

8. What is your favourite red lip colour?

See question 4, but more recently I've been absolutely loving my Lime Crime Velvetine in Red Velvet.


9. How do you store your lipsticks?

At the moment I have them in a Glossybox, but I'm constantly on the look out for the perfect lipstick storage that allows me to see them all better.

10. What lipsticks are you currently lusting after?

Chanel Suspense, Guerlain Rouge G L'Extrait lip Colour in Orgueil, the new Estée Lauder Pure Colour Envy lipsticks, Givenchy Rouge Interdit Voluptuous Nude and any of the Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks.


What are your thoughts on lipstick?
