Getting our Lipstick Pink on !

Half way through Winter and I was already over it before it even started ! ha ! So I’m dedicating this post to a POP colour – LIPSTICK PINK !

I’m a big fan of the summer colour palette’s – turquoise, orange, the citrus and neon’s, pinks and everything that’s a lovely S/S Bright !

Adding Bold and bright colours livens up any dull little black dress outfit or a casual palette look ! So I’ve decided to forget winter, dig through my wardrobe and get my Lipstick Pink on with last years Stock !



Pink Coat from Ladakh – It’s an old one from last year but If you find a great fitting bright coloured coat – BUY IT !


Lipstick by Bourjois – You can’t really see it in the picture but it’s worth a check out.


Shoes from Betts – They are from Summer at the beginning of the year so if you don’t have a pink pair yet, not to worry because it’s in the S/S colour pallet’s and will come back in again this year !


Keep your eye out for Bright coloured Coats, Lipstick, and shoes ! Those were mine…. so where’s yours ?

Let Fashion Show Your Beautiful Side

Women are bombarded everyday with slick magazine covers of perfect women looking stunning in today’s fashions. The reality is that most of these women have the same flaws as everyday woman. Today, you can learn to love your body and feel confident and beautiful with the right clothes and accessories whether you’re tall or short, skinny or curvy. Beauty comes in all sizes, colours, and shapes!

Candy Couture

Pastels, bright colours, bold, and whimsical prints are the highlights of this summer’s fashion trends. Not to be ignored is the breezy and spunky bohemian look with a chic flair. Choosing a great handbag and the right women’s shoes will smooth out that great outfit. A great outfit will make you feel confident and ready to take on the world. Feeling confident should be a 2012 summer movement allowing all women to bring out their inner fashionista for the world to see.

Neon colours are also going to be all the rage. These fun colours along with a fabulous pair of shoes to match are sure to make you feel upbeat and outgoing. Don’t be afraid to be daring and bold with a little colour this summer. Nudes and beiges are fabulous and soft, but step out of the box and show summer what you’re made of.

One of this summer’s hottest colours is bright orange! If you’re a curvy woman, choosing a slightly tailored dress or pant suit in a soft pastel or small floral print will give you a slimmed look. Show the world that you can still wear orange by adding an orange handbag and heels. You will love how you feel with some bold colour accents. Accents make an outfit and you make it absolutely gorgeous!

San Torini

Maxi dresses are fantastic for women of all sizes. These flirty, long, flowing dresses will make you feel both comfortable and chic. Large, soft floral prints compliment any figure. Choose a smaller handbag and low heels that will keep your look breezy and carefree.

Have fun this summer and step out of your comfort zone by trying something new and trendy. When you feel beautiful, you project that confidence onto others and they will see your beauty too. Step it up a notch with fun prints and bold colours. When you look good, you feel good, but when you look great, there’s nothing you can’t do. The new you is waiting, so lets show her off to summer!
