5 Wardrobe Must Haves for the Office

We all have those “I don’t have anything to wear” moments and theres nothing worse when this happens when you are rushing off to work… with this in mind I wanted to share with you all my five key wardrobe ‘must haves’ that you can rely on to get you into the office looking fabulous!

1) Black Blazer

I swear that every girl should invest in  a decent black blazer. It’s one of the most versatile items in the wardrobe as you can dress it up (teamed with a shift dress) or dress it down (with a pair of flats & skinny jeans) I personally love my trusty black Zara Blazer.

2) Pointed Black Stilettos Heels

Pointed Black stilettos will never go out of fashion and guarantee that wearing these beauties will instantly glam up your outfit! I personally love my pointed heels from Boohoo take a look!

3) Crisp white shirt/blouse

Another key item for the wardrobe and the one you can always rely on when in a rush is your white shirt or blouse! Team this with a statement necklace to give a professional yet trendy style to this outfit.Screen Shot 2015-02-26 at 21.53.56

4) The SHIFT Dress

I recently purchased my black Shift Dress from Next (£26) and I can’t believe I haven’t bought one sooner! Its perfect to wear to work with a pair of heels and a nice statement necklace and always looks smart and flattering regardless of your shape or size! A true classic – ladies buy yours now!

5) Tote Handbag 

This is the one that I personally believe finishes off any outfit and the bigger the handbag the better (in my opinion). I always find that a big tote handbag is also very practical as you are able to fit your entire life inside it! So it looks good and is practical its a win win!

SIMPLY THE BEST Concealer Ever: Benefit Boi-ing

IMG_0126Ok so saying that this is the best concealer is definitely a BOLD statement to make… (as I am the first one to admit that I haven’t tried EVERY concealer out there)! However I still stand by this little gem! It truly does exactly what it says on the box…. its industrial strength properties really do give you a great coverage and will cover any blemish with a natural but professional finish.  I tend to apply this under my eyes and around the nose and chin area. This makes for an excellent base to then apply your foundation for a flawless look. I have tried many other concealers in my time but this is trusty one I always go back to and although it may be a little more pricier compared to other products on the market it will last you a good while!

Boi-ing is priced at £17.50.   To buy your Boi-ing Concealer click here to visit Benefit’s UK website

Have you yourself tried this product, I would love to hear your thoughts & comments

Thanks for reading & happy concealing!

Beauty Storage Ideas

d003bd56c62e1f152cb78f21226e21df

I love creative ways of storing makeup – probably because I own far too much of the stuff….. So I love it when I find a clever creation to store my makeup brushes, eyeliner pencils/pens and lip-glosses. This ingenious idea is not only cheap to recreate but it is also is a more organised approach to storing such items. I love the fact that you can experiment with any shape, size or colour container/vase/pot and you can use all manner of glass beads, crystals, sand to stack any makeup item or brush – simple & effective!!

Benefit: The POREfessional

IMG_0103If you are anything like me by lunch time my makeup needs a little care & attention. So I was delighted when I was told that Benefit’s POREfessional doubles up as a pore-minimising balm and can help touch up any areas during the day! What a bonus! A little dab really does go a long way.

I use a small dot on my t-zone, chin and across my nose. As far as I am aware there is only one shade created by Benefit but it blends nicely into any liquid foundation or powder and can be worn alone if preferred.

Definitely a must have handbag essential!

Benefit: Roller Lash Mascara

Benefit’s Roller Lash definitely has to be on the ‘bucket list’ of all mascara’s to try! It doesn’t clump and the brush is excellent at seperating your lashes to give a natural effect. This is the ideal ‘day time’ mascara and it really does last the duration of the day. If you want to create a dramatic ‘night out’ effect you can build these layers up and applying a second coat of Roller Lash for a more intense look.
