Valentines Day 2015 Gifts for Him & Her

Valentines Day, the one day people hate, loath or enjoy ! For me it is a bit of both and being generally crap at gift giving my other half is either surprised completely (fluke) or  possibly underwhelmed. V Day the day where both halves of a new relationship are trying to get a non- awkward gift for each other that isn’t to creepy and for seasoned couples who aren’t sure if they should bother or not. Then theres the other side of Valentines Day where singles either cry into their wine and eat chocolate while cuddling up on the couch with their cat, or really simply don’t care. But no matter what everyone needs adorable love themed gifts and no matter if you have left it to the last minute I have complied some sure fire gift ideas for HIM and HER. Advertisements

Karen Murrell Lipstick Review

It’s Suited to a variety of skin tones, porcelain, olive or chocolate brown and one application of Coral Dawn transforms lips to welcome the warmer months with sunshine-like brightness and head-turning happiness.  I have never used this brand before, but the designer in me is so in love with the beautiful packaging it’s very floral and feminine.  <br></br> The lipstick finish I would describe as a Demi matte finish and the orange tones and the  demi matte- matte finish are currently a very in thing on the catwalks with the likes of Nanette Lepore, Donna Karan, Prabal Gurung, Rag & Bone, and DKNY using it in their recent 2014 shows. This will be an on trend colour its perfect for the warmer months as Karen Murrell creative director …

Brightening up my home – Splash of Green

“We have a beautiful fireplace, ever since we moved in  I have had the vision of having a big fluffy rug in front of the fire with colourful cushions, great company, a winter night and a bottle of wine…maybe just a little bit 70’s” So……with the purchase of a giant rug for in front of the fire I am gathering ideas for a pop of green in the living room, I can’t wait! It looks like a big fluffy green pea! So I decided to put together some ideas that would carry the green accent colour through the room. I didn’t want to pick just one colour as picking a few colours gives more depth to the space and gives you a broader palette to work with.
