THE HANDBAG ESSENTIALS

THE HANDBAG ESSENTIALS

As many of you know who follow me on Snapchat (TheLauraBlair – excuse the plug) I am constantly on a train, up and down the country for work. So the importance of having the right key ingredients in my handbag is essential. First and foremost I reach for my Lancôme products, there’s just something about them that is so reliable. The Lancôme Hypnose Doll Eyes Mascara is a firm favourite, especially for long days as it doesn’t flake off or leave marks underneath my eyes. It manages to get into the very corners of my eyelashes elongating them for a dramatic eye –…

KNOW YOUR WORTH

KNOW YOUR WORTH

Fashion. The word fashion has such a frivolous attachment connected to materialism and vanity. A degree in fashion is sometimes laughable when compared to a law or business qualification to name a few. If only they knew the reality. Fashion (que cliché quote) is the art of self expression.

SILVER LOVE AFFAIR

DON’T LET ANYONE EVER DULL YOUR SPARKLE I’ve alway had a certain love affair with jewellery, it some how brings life to dull outfits and gives sparkle to lacklustre souls. Although understated jewellery can be very effective that inner show girl in me likes to wear statement jewellery to stand out from a crowd. By adding a touch of silver it can turn a once boring outfit into something wonderful and simply turn day attire into evening wear. Most of all I love the way jewellery captures the light especially in the warmer summer months. When it comes to jewellery…

– WHEN NORMALITY JUST ISN’T ENOUGH – I’ve never been one to adopt trends, I like to find pieces for my wardrobe that are different to anyone else. So for this I venture off from the high street and usually find myself in small online boutiques looking for really individual pieces. I stumbled across Ali Express. For those of you who have never heard of it AliExpress.com is an online retail service made up of mostly small Chinese businesses offering products to international online buyers. Random fact – it happens to be the most visited e-commerce website in Russia. Well if Ebay…
