Make Up Mirror Review

A couple of months ago I was approached by a lovely company called Make Up Mirror with an innovative product to review. As someone who is constantly bemoaning the fact that I don't have the right light in which to apply my make-up, this product was really something that I was excited to try.

The Make Up Mirror itself is beautiful to look at and would make a great addition to any bedroom. It has a stand or it can be hung on the wall (very useful, since I'm not great at DIY) and it consists of a white frame with 12 bulbs, a plug and a dimmer. The company also sells the mirror in a variety of different colours to suit your taste, including pink, black and leopard print, as well as in slightly larger sizes.

The first thing that I noticed when turning the mirror on was how even and flattering the light was—there's obviously a reason why most make-up artists and famous dressing rooms all have this type of mirror. And if you haven't got a natural source of light in the room where you do your make-up, this will really come as a very useful tool. Being able to fade the lights up or down is also a great feature as sometimes, you don't need the full force of the light bulbs (and, truth be told, they tend to get a little hot at full pelt). Ultimately though, it's one of those products that you don't realise how much you've missed in your life until you've actually used it—I definitely find it hard to do my make-up without this mirror now.

Overall—I absolutely love this mirror and would recommend it to anyone wishing for the perfect make-up light. Not only that, but it's so stunningly crafted that it really sets off any kind of decor you may have. For more information on the Make Up Mirror, check out their website here where you will also be able to shop the product.


Autumn Tartans

Autumn is coming and with it a more muted wardrobe—although tartan red still remain a firm winter staple. Photographed here by the talented photographer Dik Ng (who you may remember from the Francoise Hardy shoot we did a while back) catching the last of London's summery rays. Check out more of Dik's work on his website, Facebook page or Flickr.


Italian Turquoise

A few snaps from a recent trip to Italy with this super summery Zara shirt/dress which, while perfect to wear for those cloudy days, is a nightmare to wash...Enjoy the warm weather!


Pure White

Nothing says summer like pure white and this dress from Primark is my latest obsession—perfect for cool summer days or garden parties with a pair of high strappy sandals. Bring on months of glorious weather!


Stripes & Sunnies

It's high time we got a bit of sunshine in our lives and for me, this outfit is the perfect transition from Winter to Spring. Nothing beats stripes, skinny jeans and some funky jewellery for easy, get up and go style!



Really enjoying my new favourite jersey top, courtesy of Dresslily—I got sent this item a few weeks back and have since enjoyed wearing it and finding out a bit more about the online store. Definitely check them out, they have a great range of everything from party dresses to casual tops and accessories! For me, this top is perfect for those days when you want some simple, casual and easy to wear and goes perfectly with a comfy pair of jeans and trainers.

Being Francoise Hardy

Thanks to a talented photographer, I had the chance of becoming '60s icon Francoise Hardy, if only for a few hours! Apparently, I bear a striking resemblance to Francoise, which can only be a good thing in my books, as she was considered such a big influence on music and pop culture back in the day. Looking at old pictures of her, I also absolutely love her timeless and elegant sense of style and her (sometimes quite moody!) photo sessions. Thanks to the amazing Dik Ng for making this shoot happen—you can check out more of his work on his website here, on his Flickr here and on his Facebook page here.



Leather Sleeves & Pinks

Finally, the first post of 2014 is here! Hope you all had a fab Christmas and New Year and are ready for new (fashion) adventures this year. I'm wearing one of my current favourite winter coats with leather look sleeves from Primark—perfect for the mild-ish weather we're having right now. The knee-high leather boots are a purchase from Bulgaria and I can definitely see them taking me right through to Spring. The furry-looking vest is great to throw on with pretty much anything for that extra bit of snugness. Hopefully more regular posts to follow from now on!


Festival Fun

A few photos from a recent shoot based around the theme of festival fun. Very strange to be dancing around a studio with music, balloons, light and sound effects, but also a lot of fun. And I think the pictures have come out great!


Wayward Maiden

A few photos from my recent shoot with a wonderful new clothing company called Wayward Maiden. If you're into silky slips and gorgeous girly dresses full of colour, you'll love this brand! I personally fell in love with the slips (which can be worn on their own or under a dress) and we had a lot of fun on set (before the stormy weather!). Check out the website, which launches soon, here.
