Golden Globes Fashion Faves and Fails!

VBest Dressed
Oh JLo!! Can you do no wrong?? In my eyes she is the Queen of the red carpet and she doesn't fail to live up to her title in this Zuhair Murad beaded gown. Her bombshell hair and makeup finish the look perfectly. 

 I just adore the cut and shade of this powder blue gown, against Amy Adams' red hair,it's stunning. Her luminous fresh skin and nude makeup give the overall look an angelic soft feel.


Smokin hot!! Kate Hudson is rocking this Versace number, Versace was prominent on the red carpet and I loved every piece but this dress should win an award all on its own! Kate's body is insane! Obviously a very sexy dress, The right decision is made to keep hair and makeup understated.


Not So Much...


I love Melissa Mcarthy so I feel bad having her on my worst dressed list. However this dress is awful. Apparently it's a blouse and the skirt is from another dress and the two have been sewn together... A+ for creativity and thinking outside the box but really?? All the designers in the world and then this?  On a positive note her hair and makeup are gorgeous, loving the deep berry lip. 

I am just not getting this Vera Wang number on Rosamund Pike.. I find it I'll fitting and a totally wrong shape for her figure. Her hair and makeup are divine though and she looks glowing.


I actually love this Alexander McQueen dress but I think it's all wrong for 2 reasons. Firstly I think it's a tad bridal looking and the hair and makeup add to that bridal feel, secondly it's totally over accessorised!! A cuff, rings, a belt, a bag, chandelier earrings and a flower in her hair?? With a big gown this is total overkill for me which is a shame as its a beautiful dress.

Who is your and who's look are you not really feeling?

Love,

Sarah.

January Healthy Eating Plan:Day 1

Hi all!

First let me wish you all a very Happy New Year I really hope 2015 is everything you wish and dream of.

So, after a very indulgent few weeks I have decided that I really need to cut down on alcohol, eat healthily and exercise more. I am by no means embarking on any extreme form of diet, Just choosing my meals more carefully and including lots of fruit and vegetables in my daily meals. I had the idea that if I blog daily and maybe share my daily diet with my readers, hopefully with your feedback it will keep me on the right track, and in turn I will help to motivate you guys also! We are in it together ladies!!

I started on Monday as for me this was my 1st of January.... Ok, so I cheated, but it was the weekend and I still had alot on and... well I just decided Monday would be MY first of January!

I am a day behind so I will post yesterdays meals today and today's meals tonight to get me up to date. I would greatly appreciate your comments and feedback.

DAY 1

BREAKFAST

2 slices of polish rye bread, with low fat butter, cup of tea and small glass of orange juice.





I am not one of these girls who can go carb free!! It makes me a tad crazy.. So instead I have switched to yeast free polish rye bread, its extremely good for those wishing to avoid wheat but still enjoy a sandwich! Its extremely high in fibre also and very low fat. it has a moist, rich flavour. Best of all it does not cause blood sugar to spike which is linked to weight gain.

LUNCH

Small tin of tuna, drained and a banana with a bottle of water



Bananas are one of my favorite fruits, they have to be fresh though so I like to buy them a tad green, this is just a personal preference. I love the small tins of tuna also as they are quick and easy and provide a high protein hit, a dash of salt and pepper and right from the tin is the way I roll!

DINNER

Homemade turkey burger with lots of salad and sweet potato fries.


This is one of my fave eat clean meals and a super healthy take on burger and chips and lets face it, on a Monday we all enjoy a bit of comfort food.

Its super easy to make and very tasty! Here's how I make it. Place a packet of turkey mince (thigh mince is a tad tastier) in a bowl with a good pinch of paprika, garlic, chilli flakes, dried parsely, tarragon and a good sprinkle of salt and pepper. Mix all together thoroughly, make burger patties out of even quantities of mince mixture, I usually get 4 burgers, and set aside in the fridge for 15 mins to chill whilst peeling and dicing your sweet potato. I popped the potato in the oven at 180 degrees for bout 25 min with a drizzle of olive oil and salt and pepper. Whilst these are cooking I cooked the burgers with my George Foreman grill and served them altogether with a fresh crisp salad, yum!!

In the evening I had to have a treat so had a mini caramel bar with a cup of tea... im slowly easing myself in. I walked alot yesterday and drank alot of water too so a wee treat cant do too much damage!

What do you think of my first healthy eating plan?

Have you gained any new ideas?

Lots of love,

Sarah.

Festive Fashion that’s Purse Friendly/ 3 Looks 1 Little Black Dress.

Festive Fashion that’s Purse Friendly/ 3 Looks 1 Little Black Dress.



Christmas can be an expensive time. A time where the shopping list grows and the pennies diminish. Of course, we all want to enjoy ourselves over the festive season and as women we want to look great whilst doing so. So when the calendar is packed full it doesn’t mean your wardrobe has to be. Here are my tips on looking fabulous whatever the occasion using a piece most of us have in our wardrobe, the Little Black Dress. Both slimming and versatile it can being classy or fun depending on how you style it, the LBD is this seasons saviour!


Asos Shift Dress £30
The classis shift shape is one that suits most figures, if you do not wish to show off your legs a slim fitting pair of black trousers still looks sleek and stylish.

Office Party
Casual work drinks where you want to make an effort but not go OTT? Some simple tweaks to your LBD and you will have your work mates dishing out the compliments! A pair of glitzy earrings, sparkly flats and an embellished jacket is the way to go. Add opaque tights to keep the look minimal.
   Clockwise: Jacket, Primark £23, Earrings, River Island £10, Pumps, Zara £49.99
 



   





Christmas Night Out

Here is where you really want to up the glam factor, A pair of killer heels are a must have along with a luxe looking clutch; finish the look with a statement necklace.  Dare to go bare legged for a sexy look or opt for a sheer black tight to show off those pins! Add a cocktail and you’re ready to dance the night away…




Block Heel Glitter Shoe/ £16, Matalan.
Clutch Bag/ Primark, £10
Statement Feather Necklace/ New Look, £14.99
 





Christmas Day

When the big day finally arrives you will no doubt want to be comfortable yet Christmassy, whilst visiting family and being busy in the kitchen your outfit should be practical, but it is Christmas day, so you should feel good! Add some patterned tights and layer a Christmassy knit over your LBD for when visiting, a pair of knee high boots will finish off the look nicely.

 
                                         
                                                                                               
                                                                                           
New Look Boots £39.99


Pug Jumper H&M £9.99


Assorted Price, Topshop.

Autumn Wish List!!

September is here! Whilst I am grateful for the mild weather we have been having I am also a little dismayed as I am so ready to get my autumn fashion on! Time to put the legs away and get the tights out,oh the joy... I love this time of year when we see the emerging collections on the high street of A/W fashion signifying a seasonal change and bringing with it an air of excitement for whats to come and all the fashion possibilities for my favorite time of year, I am a December baby after all.
I always tend to up my makeup game at this time of year as you can get away with more glamour as the long evenings draw in...

I have already seen quite a few bits on the high street that I am loving. But before we go there, can we just take a minute to appreciate Dolce&Gabbanas stunning A/W collection??

Regal and Red.

Safe to say the hot colour this season is scarlet red that will be sure to have you looking like a sexy siren. We will be sure to see plenty of this look represented across the high street this season.


Must have A/W 14 Pieces!!

This dress looks like it could have come straight from a runway in Milan... only its Primark! £17!
Wear with tights and boots for daytime glamour and killer red heels for evening.

H&M

That khaki fur jacket is to die for! Its definitely on my wish list. And I am so in love with the fact that knee high boots are back in a big way. I have a bit of an obsession with boots and especially knee highs. I think they can add a bit of sass to any outfit. I am lusting after the red pair.

Zara 12.99

As a lover of statement earrings,these are (as Cheryl would say) "MY CUP OF TEA". 
Use them to dress up your chunky jumper or of course add some extra sparkle to your evening look.

Whats on your A/W wishlist?

Comment below.

Lots of love,

Sarah G.

Smoky Eye and Soft Pink Lips!

Hello all!! Hope you all had a fabulous Easter weekend. I certainly did. I ate alot and indulged in a cocktail or two... My little one had us up at 6am Easter Sunday morning, so excited for the easter bunny! She was super happy with her eggs as well as some other little toys and treats, she was spoiled! Over the weekend I also enjoyed a meal and some cocktails with a girlfriend. I opted for a smoky eye and pink lips which looked quite pretty.


My favourite product from my range right now is my Crayon Dombre in Monochrome I love how it adds depth and highlight to the eyes and enhances any eye looks. You can see in the picture I used the white to highlight my inner corners and browbone and I used the black to line the water line, I also smudged a little across my upper lash line. Full Product list:

Eyes: Golden Brown shadow, Crayon Dombre,Defining Mascara, I used my eye pencil in Chestnut to fill in Brows.
Skin: Concealer Palette, Blush Palette,Pro Finish Pressed Powder in Canvas.
Lips: Longstay Lipstick in Honolulu Pink. This lipstick lasted amazingly well all night even through out my meal and whilst sipping on cocktails! 

Speaking of cocktails, I had the most amazing Cosmopolitans, they were yummy!!


Nails in Kiss Chase by Ciate. Earrings, Primark.
