November Favourites (Video)

Without sounding too cliché, I actually can’t believe that it’s almost December; my favourite month of the year by far! (Squee!). But in all honesty, where has 2014 gone?!

Okay, so you know the drill by now. Without further ado, here is the video in which I share all of my favourite things of the past month! Hint - beauty junkies, you’re in for a treat with this one!

Styling: The Oversized T-Shirt

Anybody who knows me is aware of the fact that I’m a huge lover of the baggy tee. It can either be dressed up with a pair of heels for a relaxed night time look or worn with pretty much any type of flat shoe during the day.
This is the Fall 14’ Black/White Tron T-Shirt from ByWekafore and I absolutely adore it. As you can see, I’ve styled it with a chunky jeweled necklace which I bought from East a while ago and pair of Nike low denim Air Force 1’s for a relaxed yet edgy daytime look. I’m also wearing a black body con skirt underneath the shirt to avoid any Marilyn Monroe moments from occurring if a gust of wind happens to blow my way.  This is a perfect day to night transitional outfit, all I need to do is throw on a pair of heels and a lipstick top up and I’m all set for a night out – perfect!
I love this brand as the clothes are unisex and edgy yet wearable, plus they can be styled in an array of different ways.
You can view the whole collection on the ByWekafore website and take a look at their Instagram page @ByWekaforeDubai for some cool outfit ideas.

Dubai | 3 Outfits (Video)

In this video I share with you three outfits that I have been sporting recently in Dubai. Outfit 1 features an oversized T- Shirt from ByWekafore (full blog post here) and is my casual, yet slightly edgy option. Outfit 2 is my smart casual option and it consists of a simple black maxi dress with a knee length side slit to add an extra bit of glam. Outfit 3 is my dressy option and it features a jeweled crop top, nude patent leather heels and a deep purple chiffon maxi skirt (which has an above knee length under skirt, no need to worry about hiding my modesty!).

My Winter Makeup

I love the change in weather at this time of year, even in Dubai I can feel the cooler evenings beginning to set in and I’ve taken this as the perfect opportunity to whip out my favourite winter eye and lip colours. Recently I’ve spiced up my signature cat flick by using warm purple based eye shadows teamed with either a berry lip if I’m feeling like rocking a more glammed up look, or a beige nude lip for a more subtle effect.
In this tutorial, I take you through the application of this look step by step.
