Pantone Spring Colour Forecast - Marsala

Pantone have released their Spring Colour Forecast for 2015 and topping the bill is the colour Marsala. Its a hit in the fashion and home decor department and has already been big on the red carpets (Image via E Online!) over the past few years. This warm dark red tone is a bold and confident colour that is unexpected in a Spring line up, far more interesting than the usual pastel or neon tones we expect in spring. With a brown base tone it has an almost ethnic feel to it, adding sensuality and passion to an outfit. Continue reading

by

Best Mascara

Here with another instalment of ‘According to Bloggers’, if you’ve missed the last two then why not check them out after this post, you’ll find the links at the bottom.

This post is packed with the blogging communities favourite mascaras and lots of posts and reviews from the lovely ladies who’ve helped me put this post together. I hope this helps you find your perfect mascara, or maybe introduce you to a new one! If you already have a favourite why not leave it in the comments below, or link me to your own blog review.

by

Reading ListJust incase you don’t follow my instagram (although you should!) I am a massive book lover and read as much as my spare time permits (which sadly isn’t enough!) Each year I set myself a challenge using my Goodreads account. 2011 was 30, 2012 was 35 as was 2013, and last year I upped it again this time to 40, and I just scraped that last book with a few days to spare. So I thought I would share what I spent my time reading (or listening to in some cases as I use audio books when I commute!)  last year. Continue reading

Top 10 Netflix Drama Series for Winter Evenings
by

netflix drama seriesJanuary is still winter time in my books, it gets dark early, it’s blinking cold…and wet…and windy (or at least it is here in Wales) and generally just pretty miserable all round, everyone is pretty sluggish and has yet to get out of the Christmas time time-off rhythm and really get into their ‘new year, new me’ moods.

So here are mine and Jon’s top 10 netflix drama series picks for what to watch on Netflix this winter. Continue reading
