The Budget Silver Shampoo

When I dyed my hair into a blonde ombre 'do, I went out and bought the cheapest toning shampoo I could. I wanted to test out a cheap one to see if it worked before splashing out on anything else, but I've been so impressed by Pro:Voke's Touch of Silver Brightening Shampoo that I think it's going to stay!

Finally Mastering Liquid Liner?

Now, anyone with hooded eyelids will understand how painstakingly difficult it is to do any form of liquid/gel liner, particularly if a wing is involved. But, I may have found my answer in the form of Soap & Glory's Supercat Eyeliner Pen.

Summit of Style

After being gifted Essie's Summit of Style by my sister for Christmas, this bronzy gold glitter in different sized particles hasn't left my nails. Sometimes I go for an accent ring finger, sometimes all over glitter. Or sometimes I go something a little different, this ombre glitter idea I knicked off Vivianna Does Makeup. I'm very much of the opinion that glitter can be worn all year round, so I can see this being a staple of mine in the months to come...

Faux Fur

It's fair to say my taste has changed pretty rapidly over the past year or so, because previously I would never have gone for a leopard print fur coat. But, clearly, I fell in love with this Forever 21 sale number, and took it with me to London (baby). It's so cosy and instantly adds some chic to a previously "normal" outfit - I've been converted!

London Photo Diary

Last week two of my flatmates and I headed to London for a little trip. Complete with three nights of musicals (Billy Elliot The Musical and Wicked... twice), Madame Tussaud's, Ripley's Believe It Or Not, Warner Bros. Studio Tour and plenty of wandering about the town, it was a great time! So, I thought I'd compile my favourite photographs of the week...

The Revisited... Stila In The Light Palette

When writing my Top 5 2014 Discoveries, I realised that I hadn't actually written a full review of the Stila In The Light Palette, despite having taken photos as soon as I opened it. Seeing as it has been a bit of a rediscovery for me over the past month or so, I thought it was time I jotted down my thoughts.

This is just a quick post to share the love - the baking love. I made a batch of Lily Pebbles' Brookies (that's a delicious mix of a brownie and a cookie) for NYE, and they went down a treat. These bakes are incredibly light and fluffy, and they are equally as easy to make as they are to eat... like, five in a row. What's more, they're also dairy-free. The recipe is here, and I would highly recommend you give them a shot!

My Top 5 Beauty Discoveries of 2014

Okay, this isn't the most original of ideas, but I couldn't resist. 2014 has been a year of beauty discoveries for me, and so I thought it would be fun to look back on the best of the bunch!

My NYE Outfit

It's time for me to talk about my NYE/Hogmanay outfit! I was just having dinner and drinks at home with my family, and so I didn't really need to dress up too much. I did add some glam, though, with this beauuutfiul silver midi skirt. Every time I wear this I feel like some kind of fairy/mermaid/unicorn hybrid - I love it.

emiloue's One Year Anniversary!

Happy New Year everyone! The title says it all, I've now been writing this little blog for a year! I wanted to say a big thank you to everyone who supported me, as I genuinely don't think I would have kept this up for so long if it wasn't for all of you!
