Finders Keepers

AW4A9760

Sup beauties? Hope you’ve all been enjoying some of the gorgeous sunshine we’ve been experiencing over the last few days.. even if it has been sporadic!

Carrying on from my last style post, here is my second look featuring the divine Aussie label, Finders Keepers.

I promised you some posts ago, that I would blog more day to day looks as apposed to always posting looks comprising of ridiculous shoes or over the top accessories. I think this fits perfectly into the category of simple day wear that is still stylish and eye catching.

I teamed up the gorgeous First Light top from the Finders Keepers ‘Westsider’ collection with a pair of super skinny jeans from Levi’s. The photos I have up just don’t do the print on the top justice.. it is absolutely stunning!

I accessorised with a couple of birch bangles I bought in a charity shop some time ago and my much loved YSL arty ring.

I wore my GORGEOUS pointed heels from Windsor Store, matching them with the splashes of mint in the top and finished the look off with some gold tinted aviators and camel clutch from Next.

I loved this look for a day out and about in town, perfect for my lunch date and some shopping in central ;)

I’m excited to tell you guys that in just over two weeks, I’ll be blogging full time for a while!

The Londonite started out as my little creative outlet and it is so amazing that every day, it is growing more and more and that I keep getting the most amazing opportunities as a result of it, so I am over the moon to be able to have 8 weeks of solid time to dedicate to my baby and hopefully help it grow just that little bit more! As always, thank you for your endless support <3

Right, I’m going to get back to the match now.. here’s to hoping we score!!

Thanks for reading my loves… until the next post!

FaceTools

IMG_9914-1

Like most girls, I’ve always had a passion for makeup – I love experimenting with different looks, trying out new products and drooling over the skill that some bloggers naturally possess by watching countless YouTube tutorials. Clearly not a pro but not exactly considering myself a novice, I’d labelled myself as a ‘make-up enthusiast’. With that in mind, I was completely over the moon when I was contacted by celebrity make-up artist, Natasha S, about the launch of ‘Facetools’.

Job_2832-1About 4 months ago, I sat down for a cup of coffee with Natasha in Selfridges and the first thing that struck me about her was how strikingly beautiful she was. The globe-trotting MUA is a natural beauty who’s skills were hard to doubt judging by her own flawless makeup. The second thing that really stood out to me was how incredibly warm she was. Five minutes in to the conversation and I already felt like I’d known her for years! Coffee’s and cake ordered, we got straight down to business.. Job_2550-2Over the years working with various clients, Natasha was constantly being asked the question of what brushes she would recommend that would not only be great quality but wouldn’t end up breaking the bank. Having no answer for them, she decided to create brushes of her own and thus, ‘Facetools’ were born. Natasha created a set of 13 brushes in a black leather cylinder made up of the finest quality goat, sable and synthetic hair. The clever design means that the case opens up and sits on any surface – great for doing your makeup on the go! Job_2559-EditBased on the success the brushes had with her own clients, Natasha decided to branch out and launch Facetools globally.

According to Natasha, the secret lies in the cleansing formula where, before the brushes are assembled, the bristles are soaked in olive oil to soften them and then infused with Rose & Chamomile extract making them gentle on even the most sensitive skin types.

IMG_9912-1 But the proof is in the pudding.. All those months ago, Natasha handed me my own set of Facetools which I have been using every day since and I am convinced that she is on to a game changer. At £175 (2,300 HKD) for the entire set, that works out to be a mere £13.40 per brush.. which is INSANE for the quality you are receiving.

SO, considering the brushes have only JUST been released to the public, I HAD to do a post to share them with y’all. You can buy the brushes directly from the Facetools website and shipping is free worldwide. :) You can thank me later..

Until the next post..

HARD WEAR

AW4A9659

Hello my lovers. Hope you’re all well. First off, let me just quickly apologize for the gap since my last post! If you follow me on Insta, you’ll know I was away for a while and I started moving house the moment I stepped off that plane! It was totally worth it though and I can’t wait to show you my new place once it’s all set up.

Now, with that out of the way.. I’m so excited to share this post with you, since I just happen to be wearing two amazing brands I have been massively lusting after for a while now..

This AMAZING over-sized tee is from Australian label ‘Finders Keepers‘ and I completely fell in love with it (along with every other item in their entire collection). The simple but bold animal print on the tee is not only bang on trend but is perfect for making a subtle statement this summer.

I teamed it up with a pair of coated jeans from Wildfox Couture, another brand that has been high on my wishlist for a while now! Their signature Marianne jeans are incredible at squeezing you in at all the right places and make your legs look longer and slimmer. The Onyx pair I’m sporting here have a transparent coating on them, giving them a slick leather effect.

I opted for some white pointed heels from New Look to balance out the black and white and to add a pop of colour, I grabbed hold of my stunning cobalt blue blazer from Nasty Gal. One of my best ever sale purchases!

To accessorize, I slipped on a pair of Ray Bans to match the blazer and added a touch of bling with my YSL arty ring.

Sooo.. What do you guys think? Do you like the pop of colour?

Keep an eye out for more Finders Keepers on my blog later this week ;)

As always, thank you for reading my lovelies.. until the next post!
