Winter Edit: Perfect A/W Flat Boots

Hiya Girlies, Hope your all well and starting to indulge in the Autumn weather!? Cosy knits and layers anyone!? I'm really excited about the weather turning colder as it was getting harder and harder to dress my bump - there was only so many maxi dresses I could wear!

Seeing as I can't indulge in the Autumn Winter styles I'd like since I'm pregnant - boo! So instead I have been obsessing over Boots! Mainly flat styles as I don't want to be wobbling all over with this extra weight in front of me. Oh yes its very glamorous being pregnant in Winter! Anyway here are a few of my favourite styles this season...

Topshop AUGUST Classic Chelsea Boots £60 - Here

These boots will look gorgeous this season with some skinny Jeans for everyday cool! Pair with this season's must have - The Pink Coat! You really cant go wrong with these little ankle boots.

Oasis Sophie Leather Riding Boot £85.00 - Here

I love the suede panelling on these boots - you can also get the same boots without the suede - they are so classic and would go with so many outfits. Very versatile and in my own opinion they look a lot more expensive than their £85.00 price tag.

Topshop ARRIVA Heavy Chealsea Boot £62.00 - Here

Love these boots! You can also get these boots in Black however I'm kind of in love with these Oxblood ones - perfect colour and can see myself wearing these loads if I was to get them. Want!

River Island Black Zip Trim Biker Boots £45.00 - Here

These Boots look fab on and at such an affordable price too. They will really add to any outfit and would look great with skinny jeans, leggings, skirts and dresses. These are definitely a good buy!

ZARA Flat Leather Boot £99.00 - Here

I ended up going to ZARA for some boots this season and while I was in there I then saw about a million that I then wanted too - typical! And these are on my want list. I love the deep chocolate colour and think they would look really lovely over Christmas - Sorry to say the C word but it's not actually that far away lol! There is also a gorgeous heeled pair of boots in ZARA that I've fallen for but think flats are the way to go for now. 
Tory Birch Kiernan Riding Boot £430 - Here

They might be pricey but these are so worth it. Perfection in a boot I'd say. They would no doubt see you through to future seasons and the quality is fantastic too. I have had Tory Birch boots and shoes in the past and I can say they are extremely comfy and the quality were second to none. These are on my want list for sure.

What style is your favourite? What boots have you picked up this year? Or what are you lusting after?

Thanks for reading and speak soon

London Fashion Week SS14: Burberry Prorsum

For me the Burberry Prosurm Show was the highlight of London Fashion Week Spring Summer 2014. The show was so very me and as extravagant as some of the pieces were I can completely see myself making them my own. A Burberry Trench has been on the top of my wishlist for a long time and so I look forward each year to see what twist has been put on the forever classic.

Christopher Bailey has gone all girly with the pretty pastels and cute details, yet the cuts ensure the looks are more grown up than little girl. Check out the detailing on the embroidered trench! What a beaut.

The Makeup Look

backstage at burberry prorsum spring summer 14 show

The inspiration behind the look was 'English Rose' which to me sums up the overall look of the girls brilliantly. Obviously Burberry Beauty was used to create the stunning looks.

Eyes - to recreate this look you need the new Pink Rose eye quad lightly washed over the lids and also below. Mac and Nars would also have complimentary eye shadows that would suit this look. I would also recommend Tom Ford and YSL.

Face - To get the youthful, glowing complexion Burberry Fresh Glow Golden Radiance was lightly applied to the models faces. Apply in areas that need more coverage and for an extra glow mix with a liquid highlighter. MAC Strobe Cream would also work perfectly for this look mixed with MAC face and body. Cheeks were flushed with Earthy Blush by Burberry - a suits all kind of shade. 

Lips - Lips were left in their natural state - if you like adding a subtle nude colour would set this look off perfectly. Something like MAC Freckletone would also work for this look. I would add a nude lip liner to blend the look together. 

To bring together the whole look ensure you add pastel coloured nails from pinks, yellows and violets. 

What did everyone else think of the show? What was your favourite show of LFW?

Recent Favourites #5

Miracle bump oil and balm
*Sent for review*

Oh my goodness I adore these!! I'm currently doing a full review of these two beauts but so far so good! When I've finished them a full review will be available. But I'm really enjoying using these and the smell is out of this world!

L'oreal 3 in 1 purifying Micellar Solution

I've been using this for a while now although I have gone through it quite quickly it has to be said and its really lovely. I prefer it to most of the other solutions I have used I only use these every now and again as no matter what people say they will never give you a proper deep clean like a 'proper' cleanser would. But I got this on offer in Superdrug for about £3 so you really can't complain for the price. If you fancy trying this just wait until it goes on offer as I always see it in Boots and Superdrug on some kind of offer.

Shu Uemura Cleansing Oil
450mls £59.00 

This one I have had for ages but only just got round to using quite recently and to be honest I don't know what took me so long!? I am in love it's so quick and easy and I can't imagine not using it now. I pop on 2 pumps of oil all over my dry face and then ad water and hey presto make up free face. This one is a keeper and I would recommend for those of you who find removing make up a chore. I have the 'green one' which is good for most skin types and anyone looking for an anti-oxidant cleanser.

Neal's Yard Remedies Mothers Balm

This is one thing I really love it's a little greasy but great for massage! I can imagine this will be a godsend when that itchy belly syndrome kicks in. The thick waxy consistency is really comforting on the bump, and I tend to slather this all over my thighs, bum, bump and boobs. I plan on doing a full review of this item shortly, maybe after pregnancy.

Nars Blusher in Luster

I love all nars blushers so they can't put a foot wrong with me to be honest! But this is one on the blushers that I've been reaching for loads recently I usually layer it with an illamasqua blusher as it adds a gorgeous sheen. This is a versatile number and Im sure i'll continue to use this loads in the colder months to add some warmth to my cheeks.

MAC Amplified Lipstick in Up The Amp

I'm a huge lipstick fan in general and find I have a lot of MAC Lipsticks. Up The Amp is a perfect Autumn shade and is a good shade for so many skintones, so if you're yet to dip your toes into the berry hues of lipstick then this is a good place to start.

Illamasqua Lipstick in Shard

As I've said before I am a massive fan of Illamasqua and their products and this colour is just perfect for the season! Its so rich and pigmented, and can't think that anyone wouldn't love it! I find that Illamasqua lipsticks are very long lasting, most are a matte finish which may contribute to their longevity however they are not overly drying considering the finish. This colour is part of their 'sacred hour' collection also.

So there you have a few of my more recent faves! What have you been using lately? Any of these?

Hope everyone is doing well? I'm just enjoying a lazy day today before a full weekend of work... Oh the joy! But only 2 more weeks until I break up for my maternity leave, can't believe how quick its coming around. I'm also going to be popping up a pregnancy update soon too! 

Thanks for reading Dollies
