THE JUMPSUIT
It's hard not to admit that Rosie Huntington-Whiteley on the Balmain catwalk just looks like a goddess, she totally rocks that red jumpsuit! This is a keen staple for any girls wardrobe - an all in one outfit for those last minute arrangements.

The Sheer Dress
I ADORE this trend, I absolutely love the sheer look. I see this a lot on the high street actually the sheer overlay dresses seem to be trending everywhere at the moment! But this is definitely a look that can add dimension and a sexy flare to any outfit.

The Monochrome Tuxedo
Appearing on the Dior, Celine S/S 2015 catwalk, the womenswear tux is a fun way to spice up an outfit. You can wear with tailored trousers for a smart, professional look - perfect for a job interview! But it can also be paired with a skirt or a pair of high waisted shorts with a bright coloured clutch and high heeled pumps for a more feminine, fun look. The world is your oyster!

Khaki

Khaki is wear its at. It's that classic, timeless colour that has a mix of androgyny & sexy. Easily matched with deeper tones such as blacks, browns and greys. Chanel, Marc Jacobs, Gucci, Micheal Kors and Ralph Lauren have featured it within their catwalks in various textures from suede's to silk it is definitely the must have colour for S/S 2015

Aztec Secret: Indian Healing Clay Mask

The Indian Healing Clay Mask by Aztec Secret claims to be the "worlds most powerful facial" some reviews I have read even rated it higher than the renowned GlamGlow Mud Mask (which is triple the price) known to be a keen favourite amongst celebrities. One of the key features of the Indian Healing Clay Mask that motivated me to purchase over the GlamGlow range was the fact that it is all natural with one listed ingredient - 100% Natural Calcium Bentonite. 

"100% Natural. No additives. No fragrances. No Animal Testing. No Animal Products" 


The mask in its original state is in the form of a green powder, so be careful when opening as I didn't know this and silly me spilled it all over my laptop. But you get a ridiculous amount in this 1LB tub for £12.75! So what you have to do is dilute the powder with apple cider vinegar (ACV) or water to form it into a clay consistency - remember to use a non-metal bowl and utensil as metal can interfere with the Calcium Bentonite and we don't want that! I choose to use water as my face is quite sensitive and I thought ACV may be a little harsh on my skin. After I mixed for around 5 minutes, I lathered a thick layer of clay on all around my face, left it on for around 15 minutes and then rinsed off. 


When I had the clay on I could feel my face literally pulsate like it says on the tub! But it wasn't uncomfortable or painful - it just felt like a slight cooling sensation. After I removed the mask, my skin definitely felt thoroughly cleansed and refreshed and much less oily. After a few days I noticed my pores appeared tighter, my usually very oily T-Zone was not as oily, my skin was just much more refined and smoother in general and some of my pimples had really settled down and I have not had a fresh spot (as of yet).  I think this clay might just be a new bathroom staple for me so I am definitely going to continue using it once a week. 


The only thing I would note is that your face may get a little dry after using this product so remember to moisturise after use. I like to use it before I go to bed so to ensure my face is moisturised for the morning, I mix a few drops of 100% Argan Oil with my Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream Daily Moisturiser to my face and neck area (you can also use on the ends of your hair as an overnight treatment) and this will make sure you wake up radiant!

My Top Nude Nail Polish for Under £5!

Hi guys! Sorry for not posting in a while, I have just moved house and on the process I lost my DSLR camera .. so I have been spending my days non-stop crying  (only kidding) but I am very upset because I can't afford to buy a new camera so I am having to use my iPhone at the moment. I have been wanting to write this post for a while as I found the most perfect nude nail polish and just HAD to share.

Firstly, who doesn't love a good nude nail colour that will look ever so chic and match any outfit ? I would describe the perfect nude as one in which flatters your skin tone. To be fair, my skin tone changes depending on the season so it can be hard finding the perfect nude for my brown complexion. But for this winter period I think I have definitely found a winner! It's the Collection (formally Collection 2000) gel nail polish in Almost Nude (below) which I got from Superdrug for £3.19. 


There were a few other close contestants which are also such a bargain including the 2 True Nail colour in Shade 11 £1.99, & Collection Work the Colour £1.99 Collection in Stormy Grey £3.19 (from left to right)

#ARWOMAN | Kumbear Xo

AtterleyRoad's #ARWOMAN is a campaign that commemorate's inspirational women which is a wonderful idea and something that I am more than happy to be asked to participate in. So when I first thought, who inspires me? I immediately thought of women inspirational to my life and my career in the fashion and I thought of fashion icons such as Aubrey Hepburn, Coco Chanel, Vivienne Westwood. But I have to say.. I probably sound like the majority of the female population right now (cringe) and it feels strange for me to admit to but Beyonce is someone in who is inspirational to me - not because of her looks, her fashion or her lifestyle but just because of her raw musical talent and her sense of empowerment as a performer, I find it admiring. I first seen her live in 2013 at the Chime For Change (which Beyonce is a founder of) concert which is global campaign to convene, unite and strengthen the voices speaking out for girls and women around the world, many of the stories presented on stage that day were truly heartbreaking and brought to light how grateful for the life that I have. Beyonce's live performances are definitely what I turn to when I feel like am run down and having a bad day because they always pick me on my feet and put me in a buoyant mood. My favourite performances from Beyonce are definitely Run the World, I Was Here (below), Scared of LonelyI Care and Resentment.


Her amazing talent and humility make her a woman to inspire to be like and I feel that she definitely worthy of the #ARWOMAN hashtag. She once said: 'I think a beautiful woman is someone who is confident but not competitive with other women - someone who is warm to everyone. Because my mother told me ever since I can remember that beauty is from within, that looks will fade, I have always been aware that you have to have something deeper to be really beautiful.' 

So, WHO is your inspiration? Join the conversation, nominate your inspirational women by tagging a picture of her instagram and don't forget to tag #ARWOMAN 

Much Love,
