Jo Malone New Fragance Mimosa & Cardamom

I was recently invited to Jo Malone, to try out their new fragrance which was launched for Autumn. It is the perfect Autumnal tone, although I will talk abit about the fragrance, I wanted to talk more about the experience that the lovely people at Jo Malone give. I took my mother with me for a little treat, and for a well earned shopping expedition. When we arrived we were greeted by a friendly,bubbly lady, but to be fair, if I was breathing in the exotic fragrances daily, I would certainly be happy bunny!.

We were offered a refreshing lemon,lime and mint ice water, and then the lady took us through their new range. Mimosa and Cardamon comes in a body wash which the lady washed our arms with and then with a hot flannel wiped away the suds. The smell of the fragrance hits you with the warmth like a fake fur throw blanket, which is perfect note as the season changes.
She then massaged in the fragrances body lotion, which was very relaxing, and we discussed the ingredients of the new fragrance. Mists of honeyed, golden mimosa float above the spiciness of freshly crushed cardamom, creamy tonka and smooth sandalwood woven under powdery heliotrope and Damask rose picked at dawn. After receiving this amazing speech I was thoroughly excited about trying the next stage of the experience, but although the lady did her best to sell the product to me, I could not help but feel that this fragrance just didn't do it for me. I think Jo Malone outdid themselves last year with their Wood Sage and Sea Salt Cologne, which I literally bath myself in daily, I simply cant get enough.
It was such a relaxing experience and I would recommend it to anyone to give this service ago, why not swing by and have a smell of the new Mimosa and Cardamon, you never know it might be your next fragrance!.

We had a fabulous time at Jo Malone, why not go on in and give it try.
Have you tried their new fragrance? What did you think of it? I would love to hear from you.

Autumn/Fall Look- Orange is the new Black featuring - Luxemme

I think we can safely say Autumn has arrived in the U.K. There has been a chill in the air each morning, although officially its not till the 23rd of September, nature it seems has other ideas. It looks like the 1970's trend is not leaving us as we move into a new season. With this in mind I wanted to share with you this fierce Lilou Jumpsuit from the Limited Edition, in Orange, which I recently picked up from a new fashion brand Luxemme. Luxemme is a forward thinking fashion brand combining Parisian chic with Manchester street style. The brands clothing is made in Manchester and they have really got their style down to a mixture of chic, luxurious fabrics with those fine details which sets them apart from other brands and as a added bonus with a realistic price tag. I chose this colour as there is no getting away from bold colour's this Autumn / Fall. I decided to style this 3 ways so you can see how versatile this outfit can be.

I teamed up with the Jumpsuit layered gold necklaces from Topshop, Black clutch from Topshop (see my review) and Stone coloured sandals from New Look. Great outfit for a night out or a Autumnal wedding.

My second outfit I teamed with a Navy blue trench coat from Primark for the change is seasons, and Navy Wool Hat from H&M Fashion to give it a polished yet more casual feel. This look is perfect for shopping or just going out for afternoon tea.

My next and final look is for a laid back weekend feel, mixing Converse Hi-Tops, Leather Jacket (my own from nearly 15 years ago) Black Beanie and Topshop Tote Bag in Black to complete the look.

So there you go my take on styling this seasons Jumpsuit. Don't forget to enter naybeautymua in the promo code box to receive your 10% off any items . What do you think of this outfit? Have you checked out Luxemme uk great style pieces? Let me know in the comments I would love to hear from you.

Baking and Shaking Make Up Trend

Baking, and no I am not talking about the Great British Bake Off, baking is a make up technique. Its been used for years by the drag queen community and has found its way down to the highstreet. It has also become more popular of late with the likes of Kim Kardashian sporting this make up technique.
This make up technique is not for the faint hearted though. It can make your skin look flawless on photos, but in real life its very obvious you are wearing A LOT of make up. I would though give it a go as it looks great in photos.

Heres how I achieved this look. Take a cream concealer, I used Collection Lasting Perfection concealer and draw a triangle shape under the eyes, a line down the center of the nose, cupids bow, forehead and under the cheekbones.
My impression of a Badger

Blend with a sponge, I used my Beauty Blender (see my review) or for a budget sponge Real Techniques Miracle sponge is a good alternative, and then press transulent powder over the top, I used Illamasqua translucent loose powder and let it sit on there and then "BAKE" said in my best Sue Perkins impression (this is the baking process) and get on with applying the rest of your make up. At the end take a Fan brush or a big fluffy brush and sweep off the excess, then you are ready for any photo opptunity that may come your way.

Been aware though this can be abit addictive if you like wearing alot of make up, you will like this as your skin is FLAWLESS.

So, thats my take on Baking, a classic make up technique. Have you tried this look yet? Why not have a go, afterall its only make up.
