Celebrity Style – Fashion Under $100


As most of you know, I adore seeing what celebrities have been wearing, not just on the red carpet, but also out and about in daily life. I’m starting a new feature to share the latest celebrity style – fashion under $100, with the kind of things we actually wear day-to-day… perfect jeans, a cute dress, fabulous sunglasses or super stylish flats! It’s capturing the latest trends that suit ‘real life’, at an affordable price.

STYLE Q&A WITH RACHEL:

How would you describe your style?  I would describe my style as colorful! I love to mix colours in my outfits, pairing colours that perhaps people may not have thought to have tried. One thing I know is that my style is ever evolving and i don’t think I’ve found my ‘signature style’ just yet. I love to try new trends and remix old items with new pieces.

Which fashion trend are you currently loving?  I recently bought my first Jumpsuit (here) and I am absolutely loving wearing this item. It’s just so easy to dress up with some statement jewelry and heels or style casual with some flat shoes and a scarf.

What inspired you to start your blog?  I wanted an outlet for my love for fashion, at the time I worked in a male predominant industry where nobody even cared what i wore each day. Starting the blog and finding like minded ladies to talk fashion with was just the outlet I needed.  I also had just had my son Neo and felt i needed a push to get out of my comfy sweats and back in to real clothes. It worked too,Ii started to look forward to getting dressed again and then sharing with the blogasphere!

Name three beauty products you couldn’t live without: Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch (Touche Eclat equivalent) amazing for my tired eyes! Eyebrow pencil (I am severely eyebrow challenged after being an over zealous plucker in my teens.. plus it was the 80′s.. thin was in!) Maybelline BB cream. So great for evening out my skin tone and is a great spf too!

What is your best beauty trick? Red lipstick! Every time! I swear by it. If I have a business meeting or an appointment and I immediately want to look put together, red lipstick does the trick. It also makes me feel chic and ladylike!

What is your favorite (or dream) vacation destination? I’m a Travel agent by day so this changes quite often for me. I’m also quite fortunate to have been to some lovely places too. One of my dream holidays was Borneo to go to the baby orang-utan orphanage.. that would be awesome! But then on a different day I would probably say anywhere (or multiple stops would be even better!) in Italy. I love Italy very very much. The food, the culture, the fashion… it’s my favourite place.

Tell us something not many people know about you?   Um, well this is very new and hardly anybody knows, but I’m currently working on a a brand new venture.  Yosa, is my new online boutique launching soon selling statement jewelry and accessories. I’m so excited!

Fab Favorites Link Up: Beauty Talk – Physicians Formula Makeup Review


Happy Friday and welcome to the Fab Favorites Link Up! I hope you’ve all enjoyed a wonderful week, I’ve been counting down the days until the big Nordstrom anniversary sale… and it’s heeeeere! Check out my rather long wish list below, I snapped up a few my favorites already (the good things always sell out quick!).

BEAUTY: Physicians Formula Makeup Review

As most of you probably know, I’m also completely obsessed with hair and beauty – I absolutely adore makeup and trying new products. I’ve used Physicians Formula for years, the first time I was away on family vacation and forgot my bronzer (ugh, don’t you hate when you forget things!), so I just wanted to buy a inexpensive one to get me through. Well, it was so lucky I forgot my bronzer – as the new one I chose was amazing and I’ve had it in my repertoire ever since.

So when Physicians Formula sent me some of their new products to try, I was delighted! I’m going to share a little makeup review of my favorite ones with you today – and if you’re a Physicians Formula fan too or would like to try it, Target currently have Buy One, Get One Free on the entire range (until the end of tomorrow, Saturday July 19… although even at full price, they are not expensive and I find the quality is brilliant, just as good as most of my really expensive makeup).

12 Fab Favorites Link Up: Beauty Talk   Physicians Formula Makeup Review Organic Wear Curl + Care Mascara   |   Concealer and Highlighter    |    Kohl Kajal Eyeliner Trio   |   Shimmer Palette for Eyes & Face   |   Beauty Balm BB Bronzer

Over the last year in particular, I’ve become so much more aware of what I am actually putting on my skin. Aside from the glam factor, I must say I love that there is a real focus on natural ingredients in the Physicians Formula range. A few of the stand-out favorites for me are…

ORGANIC WEAR MASCARA
Firstly, I love that 100% of the ingredients used in this mascara are natural and taking it one step further, 70% of them are organic. I always look for a mascara that can give me not only length, but volume too – without the clumps. This one certainly delivered! It went on smooth and lasted all day, which is so important for me, I don’t like carrying makeup around and I was so impressed when I got home to find it was still beautifully black and intense. How fab is the tube too, I love the unique shape and found it fit in my hand perfectly when applying (it aligns with the curve of your index finder as you brush it on!).

SHIMMER STRIPS
Oh my gosh, how cute is the packaging!! I love love LOVE it! This glam little compact is magnetic and has the 12-color palette in the front, then the back opens to reveal a mirror and two applicator brushes. I adore fresh, natural, golden skin and found this a genius set for both the eyes and dusting on a little face glow! I used it as an eye shadow, bronzer, blush and highlighter on the top of my cheek bones and the bridge of my nose. If you’re like me and fairly new to contouring, there is a fabulous guide in the back of the palette… so no matter where you are, you can just follow the steps. I have to say this is one of my favorite new makeup finds, as mentioned I don’t like carrying a ton of makeup in my handbag, so instead of bringing a bunch of different products during the day, I just carried this.

BEAUTY BALM BB BRONZER
So we’ve all heard about the skin nourishing benefits of BB creams, now this is the first ever BB bronzer! It’s difficult for me to describe just how excited I am about this… as mentioned, their bronzers were what got me hooked on Physicians Formula years ago – and this newly released one, it’s on another level. I am so particular when it comes to the bronzer I use, it needs to look super natural and have none of that dreaded organgey hue. This one gets a massive tick in the box on both accounts! It even has SPF 20, vitamins C and E, plus other natural extracts to help with smoothing and brightening. Oh and the color itself is just divine. I’m so excited to have tried this, it’s without doubt my new go-to bronzer!
