One thing I love about this season and the weeks coming up to Christmas are the makeup collections on offer in most department and beauty stores. When it comes to makeup I prefer buying individual pieces throughout the year. My fav lipsticks are M·A·C lipsticks and have been for many years. They have a new winter holiday collection out which i'm swooning over. Romantic and glamorously rich, each collection is infused with dazzling colours and are made up of beautiful palettes. Glitters and golds, pinks and reds, there's hues to suit every glamorous woman. I have so much respect for brands who collaborate with charities and donate to good causes and a percentage of the sale of the VIVA GLAM lipstick and lipgloss go towards helping women, men and children everywhere affected by HIV/AIDS. Strike an air of sophistication this season with these fabulous collections.
Autumn has provided me with the best excuse to declutter, rearrange my bedroom space and buy a few lovely winter knits and accessories. This is a beautiful season to redesign and give your room a perfect makeover. Autumn is a transitional season which makes it a perfect time to make these same changes to your living space, for me that's my bedroom. There are many different ways to add space to your room, walk in closets are a favourite of mine as they provide a glamorous personal retreat to your own stylish hideaway.
Walk in wardrobes are a very contemporary space to have within the home because they are super versatile and can stylishly store many things from clothing to shoes and accessories. Walk in wardrobes also declutter your bedroom as the space made for fitting a wardrobe or a chest of drawers is now available and provides the room with a great air flow. The storage gets transitioned to another space providing privacy and a retreat to a place of pure deluxe.
It were only celebrities and those in the fashion and design industry which incorporated a separate storage space for apparel from their bedroom but this is becoming a highly desirable trait with many houses now being designed with this function in mind.
The space below provides a glamorous and classy space for most homes but would look particularly fabulous in a bachelors apartment. The clean lines and open space incorporated with a beautiful leather fabric finish oozes with style.

Another favourite of mine is sliding door wardrobes. They can beautifully enhance space within a room. It provides a clean and sophisticated ambience which is versatile and looks fabulous in small spaces such as a loft room, as seen below.
Influenced by asian and oriental decor, sliding door wardrobes provide a good air flow within a room and highlights an atmosphere of zen and tranquility, perfect for any bedroom. The design and decor of a room can easily be moderated with these wardrobes as they are quite neutral in design and have so many hidden functional features such as an abundant storage space which is magically hidden behind beautiful doors.
I haven't done a beauty post in a while but with so many autumn and winter events coming up it's necessary right? The thing I love most about autumn is that we can start wearing the red lip and the smokey eye, together. It's a look that has always been glamorously stylish and can be toned down during the day with winter jumpers or dressed up for a stunning evening look.
During autumn and winter, the best colour to compliment both the winged liner and red lips is gold. Shimmery golds look elegantly fabulous with winged liner and smokey eyes and as christmas is approaching there are many eyeshadow palettes with golden tones available in many beauty and department stores. My favourite eyeshadow palettes are from Urban Decay, they are long lasting and super durable. Below is some inspiration for your next evening out. Get gold and get glamorous! ♡
Hope you're all having a great week. I've recently joined Tumblr and I absolutely love it. It's quite similar to Pinterest. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Pinterest, it's a platform where you can create albums of things you like which inspire you from repining images already on the website or from any webpage on the internet. I highly recommend signing up if you haven't already. It can bring hours of fun. Tumblr is a blog in itself, the only difference is it is imagery based. I find this really inspirational and somewhere I can escape to for a couple of hours. Below are some images from my Tumblr, I hope you find the images as pretty and inspiring as I do.
Scandinavian design emerged in the Scandinavian countries Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Finland in the 1950s. It was a movement of design which highlighted simplistic design, function and minimalism. Scandinavian design arose from a cultural movement where Realism was replaced by Modernism as an escape from the Realism that dominated the art world during the 19th century. Affordable, beautiful objects were able to be implemented within design schemes, bringing a fresh new, contemporary outlook on interiors and its space.
The Scandinavian way of living is portrayed through it's designs and interiors. Most Nordic designers are very passionate about this way of minimalistic living that their designs are inspired by nature and are kept clean, simple and easily enjoyable whilst being beautifully functional.
