Rimmel Kate Moss Lipsticks Review



Hello my Stylish Bows. Today I have a very picture heavy post for you, but when I was photographing these products I was really pleased with the results. Today I am going to finally review the Rimmel Kate Moss Lipsticks, I know I am a bit late on these but I haven't had chance to review these lately. I have two original lipsticks and a matte lipstick to review, I hope you enjoy.

First up, the matte lipstick. This is my favourite as I am a matte make-up fanatic. The colour of this is #111 Kiss of Life, The matte lipsticks are easily recognisable by their red packaging. This colour mixed with the amazing pigmentation and formula of the product makes it my number 1 red lipstick. I use it all the time and has become my go to product. The product glides on effortlessly and stays there. When I first got this product I wore it without a lip liner and it didn't move, and at only about £5 it is my favourite beauty bargain.

The original formulas are no exception. They also have great pigmentation and smooth formula, but have a little more natural finish. These would be perfect for anyone who is a bit shy of matte lipstick or bold colours. I have these in #10 which is an orangey red and #03 which is a bit more of a nude colour with a few brown undertones. I don't wear these colours as much, only because I prefer a bold lip but they are equally impressive.

Johnny Loves Rosie Bow Necklace




Hello my Stylish Bows, today is the first time I will share with you one of my amazing Christmas presents that I love. One of my presents this year from my parents was this gorgeous bow necklace from Johnny and Rosie. The brand sells accessories and is sold on many sites including their official site and Asos.com. 

This necklace comes in silver and gold, both have matching rings and earrings available. It is plated in 14ct gold and has baby blue gems. This piece is absolutely gorgeous and I am currently considering purchasing the matching ring. Normally this piece is sold at £18 on the official website, but is currently on sale at only £5.40. Unfortunately for my parents, they paid full price but oh well. This necklace is now part of my every day wardrobe and my statement piece. I definitely recommend getting this as a little sale shopping treat.

You can find the product HERE.

Favourite Red Lip Combo Winter 2013

Rimmel Kate Moss Matte Lipstick #111 Kiss Of Life £5.49 Boots and e.l.f Matte Lip Colour # Rich Red £3.75 E.L.F 
Hello my Stylish Bows. Today I wanted to share with you my favourite red lipstick combo at the moment. I have really been loving a matte lip this season and my favourite combo is the Rimmel Kate Moss Matte Lipstick in 111 Kiss Of Life and the e.l.f Matte Lip Colour in Rich Red. I like to use the e.l.f product as a lip liner and to fill in my lips to make my lipstick last longer. I then apply the Rimmel lipstick over the top for a rich colour. You could use either product on it's own but I prefer to use both to achieve a bold look.
What are you loving this winter?

NARS MATA HARI Review


Hello again my Stylish Bows, today I have a review for you. I am sorry I have not included any swatches of this product, but when I tried to upload the images they looked dark and patchy so I chose to leave them out. The review today is of one of my new favourite blushes, NARS Mata Hari. As always with NARS products the quality and pigmentation is excellent. This product blends beautifully and looks natural, giving a gorgeous flush of colour. I like to describe this colour as a dusty rose kinda colour. It is a really pretty pink, which I love, but is a colour completely unique to my collection. As you can see from the last picture the packaging gets really messy quite fast, but the product inside is amazing. Definitely a product I wish to repurchase. If you are looking for this product you can pick it up from quite a few places but I picked mine up from Asos.com at £21. I bit pricey, but definitely worth it, I am absolutely loving it.

My Favourite Winter Candle



Hello my Stylish Bows. Today's post is only quick, but I wanted to share with you my most loved candle of winter 2013. It is by a brand we all know and love Yankee Candle and is part of their Winter/Christmas collection called Sparkling Snow. The scent is a mixture of sweet and spicy, great for a cold winter evening watching a Christmas movie with hot chocolate (marshmallows included). My favourite thing about this candle is it has a sparkle to it which is really pretty. I only wish it made the flame sparkle, Hopefully those candle geniuses at Yankee Candle with make one that does it next year. Finger's crossed.

How to get inspired to write a blog post

How to get inspired to write a blog post.

Hello again my Stylish Bows. Today's post is something I have been thinking a lot about the last few months. Sometimes I really lack inspiration to do things, even blog posts which I love more than anything. When I lack inspiration I can feel really depressed and it gets me really down, but over these last few months I have found a few tricks that help me out which I would love to share with you.

1) Inspirational songs.
I love listening to songs that really inspire me and make me think while writing a blog post. I would definitely recommend Adam Barnes' songs 'Come Undone' and 'She will Stay Beneath The Moon' which you may recognise from a video Zoe from Zoella put up a while ago on YouTube, which is where I first heard it. These are both songs that make me want to write and every time I hear them I think of my blog. It makes me smile. :)

2) Blog Photos
I love looking at photos from blog posts, especially some earlier ones. I really love looking at ones that never made it into posts as it gets me thinking "How could I use these?". Here's some examples...
This photo is one that has never made it into a post as far as I know. It is of a necklace from Primark which I played around with in Photoshop. 



I made this a few months ago and I am super dooper proud of it. Every time I see it, I remember my childhood bedtime stories.

3) Yummy Snacks
This is definitely a common theme with blog posts. I will be sat in front of my laptop with a coffee, ear-buds (in my ears obviously) and a yummy snack. Often not very healthy but oh well.

I really love Marshmallow fluff with pancakes. Ever tried it?

4) Warm Environment
Finally my most important. I always write my posts in my bedroom. It always feels much easier to get posts out when I am surrounded by the things I love and in a room where I don't have to worry about people reading over my shoulder. I can write whatever I like without anyone butting in. Peace. Also surrounded by pink, how could I complain?

That's all from me.
