‘Tis the week for Christmas parties! I don’t like to show off but I have three. (There were a good few years when I was self-employed and had none so indulge me a little).
I love a high low mix when it comes to dressing – sparkles with jeans, a cheap tee with a designer heel, you get the idea. So what about the fuzzy roll neck for a party? Hmmm… it can work but you better be bringing your A game with the party feet. I saved a shot of these Kurt Geiger beauties a while back and I’m so excited they’re on my toes and out to dance! Yep, my toes are gonna be cold and nope, I don’t care.
The weather has been presenting some serious challenges this past week or so with barely an hour of sunshine and what feels like 20 hours of darkness a day. Indoor locations are kind of a new thing for us but it seemed crazy not to try shooting at the Kelvingrove Art Gallery when it’s virtually on our doorstep. And my gosh is it beautiful in there. The lighting brought it’s own troubles but I’m pretty happy with how the shots turned out – I hope you like them.
Right… I’m off to take these feet dancing! Enjoy your parties.x
Last week I had the chance to visit Merili at Eden Beauty Garden to try out her eyelash extensions – I’ve been after these bad boys for a while so I couldn’t get myself booked in fast enough! Well I have to tell you it’s been 5 days now and I love these new bambi eyes of mine. They took some time to apply as they’re individual lashes, each attached to one of my own, but I lay back and just took some time out to relax… and fall asleep (sorry Merili!). They completely eliminate the need for mascara or anything at all really which is a huge win. Maybe I’ll amp it up a little with some shadow or liner for a Christmas party but for an everyday look like this, they’re good to go just the way they are.
How will I ever live without them? Good news is I should be golden for another few weeks if I take good care of them. If you fancy your own bambi eyes I can’t recommend Merili enough – gorgeous city centre salon (just next to Glasgow’s central station) and 20% off this month. If I didn’t mention it already – I LOVE mine.
What to say about the look? Keeping warm with the leather legs and lots of layers (there might even be a thermal under there too…). Avoiding the bulk with cuffed sleeves and a bit of a ‘half in half out’ tuck for a touch of detail. Easy. And when it’s this cold, all we care about, warm!
Friyay! Wow this week has been, well, kinda wintry and grey. I mean I’ll be honest, there was one day when I fought a hailstone blizzard on every single dog walk… and there were 4… in one day.
Winter whites and neutrals layered up (and belted in – always) are some sort of medicine for all those dark skies. But take it from me, just one soggy dog shake will bring your winter white dreams to an abrupt end, hmm. So maybe not practical, but a little feel good factor injection at least.
Hurrah (yep, I just did that) for the weekend – I’ve been dreaming about this hot chocolateall week. My rich, naughty friend… I’m coming for you. Rich and naughty friends are always good are they not?
