L'Oreal Mythic Oil

For those of you who follow me on twitter, you will probably already know that I signed up for glossybox and got my first box this month.
I've been a fan of the whole idea behind it since I first heard of birchbox (the American version) nearly a year ago so was really excited to learn that there was going to be an English version. Like most people, I waited a few months to see what it was like before signing up myself.

I was going to do an open box post, but I'd seen a lot of them about and wanted to bring a different kind of post to the mix. So, I've decided to talk about my stand-out product from September's box: L'Oreal Mythic Oil.

I am in love with this product, honestly. I only received my glossybox ten days ago and already I've used so much of it.
I use it on wet hair after I've washed it just like I would a serum, but I also use it on dry hair to give my ends a boost and also just before bed as a mask.
The products claims to leave hair 'instantly more supple, tamed and glossy.' I completely agree with this. My hair has been unmanageable for ages, with constant dying, heated tools and teasing so I've had problems with dry/split ends. But after using this product, it was a lot easier to comb. 
Also the scent is gorgeous. It is made from avocado oil and grape seed oil. It smells really fresh.
This is something I would definitely buy. 

I was not paid for this review. I bought the glossybox and honestly believe this product is amazing. 
sorry for the webcam pictures, I'm having problems with my PC and camera atm.


LFW: Antonio Berardi

The bulk of this collection to me seemed to be about relaxed power dressing: boyfriend blazers and loose-fitting trousers. 

 That jacket needs to be in my wardrobe now! I'm in love with this red! <3

 I could honestly look at this dress all day. Definate stand-out piece of the whole week for me!
I have so much love for these dresses!

I think out of all the collections at LFW this season, I was mostly drawn to Erdem.
I can't think of anyone that does floral like Moralioglu.
 I love the matching gloves with this dress; really channeling the 50s.
 This is my favourite piece. I love the length, the colour, the collar....I could go on.

Another aspect of the collection I just loved was the romantic, floaty and sheer pieces.

 This skirt is also one of my favourite pieces.

NYFW: Threeasfour

Threeasfour's SS12 prints and fabrics are just gorgeous, their message simple: connection. 
Style.com explains: 
They made prints that wove together iconography from Jews and Arabs, Israelis and Palestinians

These are my favourite pieces.

The dresses are beautiful, but what really caught my eye was the swimwear. 
I NEED them in my life right this second!

I love colour-blocking. If it's done right, it looks amazing on anyone.

I've been browsing the nyfw collections and came across a look from Alexandre Plokhov that brings this trend to a new dimension and is perfect for SS12.

LUSTLIST: Illamasqua

Theatre of the Nameless

>>I'm lusting after Nail Varnish in 'Faux Pas' and 'Kink', Intense Lipgloss in 'Belladonna' and Powder Blusher in 'Morale'.
What are you buying?



For September, I'm setting myself a challenge: to only buy basics. Things I can wear for a long time.
So far on the list, there is

  • Blazer
  • White shirt
  • Tailored Shorts
  • Ankle Boots
What are your favourite basics?



When in doubt, go black and white.
