Dior Addict Extreme 756 Fireworks

I have always loved Dior make up and have used it for years, it was my trusted brand that i knew what i get so i have never really veered away from it until you lovely Beauty Bloggers showed me there is more to make up than Dior.  So over the last year i have been cheating on Dior with MAC, Benefit & YSl.  However for my Birthday my wonderful Hubby bought me a new Dior lipstick and I’m back on Dior train.  If you have never used Dior cosmetics i would highly recommend them, yes they are a little pricy but 100% worth it.  I apply my make up around 07:45 in the morning and don’t touch it throughout the day.  In fact when i finish work and go to the gym i wipe my makeup off because it’s a little too much for the gym, the colours stay vibrant, and the foundation is light to apply and enhances my pale complexion with natural glow without the shine. Perfect!  

 Over the years i have become more adventurous with my lipstick colours, once over a lip balm would have been all i needed but now i feel naked without a splash of colour to my lips (i wonder if it’s an age thing?).  This colour is a vibrant red/orange (on me), i like the colour as it’s not too dark and is great for work. 

 I always feel i babble a little when trying to review a product so i will also incorporate their own words as i feel i don’t do the product justice.  I would give this product a 10/10 because it’s perfect for me.  Let me know what you think about Dior cosmetics and also if you have any trusted brands.
 Dior’s Bumf!

I really don’t know if it’s a girl thing but I love stationery. From a young age I was obsessed with all things stationery, I used to have one of those post office windows with stamps and stickers, it was one of the best toys I remember.  I also remember begging my Mum for animal stationery for my birthday, when other girls wanted Barbie’s I wanted stationery.   I always thought I would grow out of it but no, I’m 32 and I still LOVE stationery, note books, cute little accessories etc.  I really can’t get enough!   My stationery obsession is Kate Spade because everything they make is just stylishly adorable.  Here is my current wish list that will no doubt turn in to my Christmas wish list.

What your obsession? 

New York, New York

New York…what can I say, it was AMAZING, like seriously crazy good.  We started out our adventure in Times Square.  Thinking back I never expected it to be as busy, yes it looks busy on TV but seriously don’t wear expensive shoes because your feet get trampled to death.  There is so much awe and wonder around you that you can’t help stopping every two minutes to look up or take a picture, I'm sure I was peeing people off but what the hell I was in New York I wasn't going to miss a second of it. There was always something going on, naked cowboys singing in the street, superheroes on every corner, a random tennis tournament.  Seriously New York is the city that never sleeps.

 Riding the Subway Is pretty much the same as the Underground apart from the random people who start dancing and singing or selling cereal?!?!  

We did all the tourist stuff like, Lady Liberty tour, Grand Central, Central Park, the Empire State Building, Moma, 911 Memorial, The Museum of Natural History, watched the Yankees & took in a show.  I took over a thousand pictures that I am sure you don’t want to see but I have added just a few below.

 This was the view from our room, the ball looks much bigger on TV!

Ellissa and i both got excited because we had saw this on Glee!


We flew to Texas for a week then returned to New York for two nights before flight home.
On our second leg in New York we stayed at the Waldorf Astoria which is a truly amazing hotel, it is stunning inside, pure elegance.  We spent our last two days shopping on Park Avenue and Lexington. 
I love Bloomingdales, I visited my first store a couple of years back in San Francisco and fell in love,  who doesn't love the “little” “Medium” Large” Brown Bag’s?
I would recommend New York to anyone, it really has something for everyone!

The Fashion Book

Two of my favourite and books!
 I was over the moon when i received this amazing book as a birthday gift. yes i have the best friends.

It's seriously HUGE, it's spanning almost 200 years of the fashion world and the people who created and inspired it. It’s a wonderful addition to any self-respecting fashionista.  Quoting Vogue "it's the Fashion Bible".
