NYE Looks

30 Dec

It’s New Years Eve tomorrow and somehow the passing of the old year always feels significant. Some will be wanting to move on, forget the troubles of 2014 and some will never want it to end, treasuring their own special moments. Whether you’re saying farewell to 2014, welcoming 2015 with open arms or both… I hope you have a wonderful evening and look fabulous too!

Here’s a couple of ideas for pared-back party looks.

Just make sure you use a foundation with good coverage and that eyebrows are groomed, pop on some statement jewellery and you’re set.

Happy New Year & thank you for being part of my 2014.

Almost January Sale Shopping

29 Dec

I tried to avoid the crazy atmosphere of Liverpool City Centre in the midst of a sale hurricane but it seemed quiet after work tonight so I braved a couple of shops.

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/8e0/39497198/files/2014/12/img_3129.jpg This stylish mac from high street bargain heaven Primark was reduced from £28 to £10 and will make a perfect trans-seasonal jacket come spring. I adore the buttoned epaulets with pink piping.

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/8e0/39497198/files/2014/12/img_3135.jpg I also picked up a houndstooth skirt in Primark marked down from £10 to £3, it will look great with a black turtle neck jumper.

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/8e0/39497198/files/2014/12/img_3127.jpg To finish off my sale shopping I headed to Forever 21 and got this lovely little skirt with nice pocket detailing that was £7.99 (originally £13.50).

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/8e0/39497198/files/2014/12/img_3128.jpg Very pleased with my sale purchases and happy I saved over £30!

Early Christmas Present

21 Dec

My best friend and I exchanged Christmas presents a little early and I was so happy with all of the lovely gifts from her but there is definitely a favourite.
My beautiful little Carrie Bradshaw style name necklace, I’m totally in love with it and I’m going to run around the city in heels just like Carrie! Well maybe walk…

And if you find someone to love the you you love, well, that’s just fabulous’ Carrie Bradshaw, Sex and the City.


I’ve Got a Thing About Knits

16 Dec

I think I’m addicted to knitwear, especially turtle neck jumpers. They are taking over my wardrobe one purchase at a time.

Fell in love with this thigh split chunky number from fast, inexpensive, fashion experts Primark for £12.

I Declare This Mary-Kate Monday

8 Dec

I am mesmerised by Mary-Kate Olsen. Captivated. Obsessed. In love with her. She is it, whatever it is and what better way to break through a miserable Monday than by channelling her chic.




Dark eyes, grunge hair, black clothing and a moody filter. I use Oil Elixir for Colour Treated Hair by TRESemmé to keep the ends of my hair silky soft and give a good spray of Salon Finish hairspray, also by TRESemmé, to keep my style in all day.


You can find a short video clip on my Instagram page @ShotsThroughTheHeart for how I get these beachy waves using my GHD styler.
Happy Monday everyone,
