Accessorize 2015 Summer Sale Top Picks!

Leave a Comment
Accessorize is one of my all time favourite shops, not only because I could buy everything but they also do a darn good sale. Some items left nearing the end are sometimes reduced by 70%. We don't even need a reason to justify a few purchases!

 I had a snoop around their website this morning and came across these 6 items that may have been added to shopping cart! The Stud Earrings are an essential in my eyes as the colour combination will go with most things in my wardrobe. I almost had them bought full price, thank goodness I waited a few weeks!

Secondly, I love everything with french splashed all over it so how cool is this 'Bonjour' clutch bag? (You can also get it in a mega-sized beach bag version). I can't see me getting much use out of them though so I might have to resist temptation! The Chanel-esque pumps are another matter though, it would probably be difficult to find anything that these WON'T go with.

FASHION // River Island Peplum Jacket

Just a short update today to show you all this little lime green number! I have had these photos on my camera for wayyy too long and totally forgot about them. I always do that, this taking photos in bulk thing can all get a bit too confusing at times!

I love a good peplum myself and I have countless peplum tops, so this little jacket really caught my eye in my local River Island. Who doesn't like this style? It is a great 'in-between' jacket for this funny weather where it is raining one minute and all over sunshine the next. Not too heavy and not too light is what I mean!  

As for the suede lace heels, I found these in the drawer under my bed a few weeks ago and I had totally forgotten about them! I remember buying them when I worked in Next (totally missing the fab discount!) and they are super comfy so I will be keeping them out for Spring/Summer '15. That stone/grey colour goes with errrythang, especially the 'tricky' colours like black, navy and tan.

The black skinnies are my all time favourite skinnies from River Island! I mean, they are proper skinny and don't stretch after washing. I have them in the regular denim Molly jean too which I absolutely love. I wear these time about and would literally cry if any of them ripped. 

Have you seen my coral summer dress by wearall.com and this this coral swing dress from River Island? These two will definitely be packed in my holiday bag this year... 


Hope you are having a good week, speak soon!

A photo of a sports luxe wishlist

a photo of a sports luxe wishlist


We all love comfortable fashion, I just can't be bothered dressing up some days! In saying that, I don't want to look like I've just finished a gym workout in my gym gear or loungewear so the items on this week's wishlist are a great middle ground. If I'm going for this look I would always stick to the monochrome colour palette with black, white and every shade of grey. Soft jersey or floaty fabrics are also a must with this trend!

I love the first print sweatshirt simple as I love anything with French on it, I don't need to know what it says, I just buy it anyway and I'm not sure if that is a good or bad thing haha!
I have also been tempted by New Balance for a while now. Again, the bright colours in them are fab but if I was to invest I would definitely just go for a black or grey pair that aren't so in ya face. New Balance sneaks and rolled up ripped knee jeans? Sounds perf.

ALSO, I love the warmer weather as I like to throw my jeans aside when I can and opt for harem pants/ tapered trousers or ankle grazers. I purchased these blue tile mosaic trousers from Wallis last week and oh my word they are just like wearing pyjamas. Super comfy and I am able to dress them up with a navy blazer and heels or I can dress them down with a vest top and embellished sandals. 

As for the sweatshirt tie skirt... hmm, I'm not sure what I think of this one? I had to include it though as the model on the Missguided website definitely pulled it off! I have a feeling it would magnify my hips (which would NOT be good!) but if you have a figure like this girl, this tie sweatshirt trend could be one to try!

That's all for this week, I hope you like my wishlist picks and you can let me know what you think by tweeting me @thefashionsix or posting a comment on Facebook

Wishlist-ing - Summer Brights from Oasis, River Island, Dune & Nars

1 comment
Summer brights wishlist
Summer brights wishlist

So saying as it isn't getting any brighter or warmer out there I've had to bring the summer shades to my blog! I'm not one for wearing 'out-there' clothing so I like to add a pop of colour in my accessorises and makeup. I have a little coral satchel which is similar to this one from Oasis and I love it, it's officially summer when I get that out! The only thing is, it isn't anywhere near big enough to hold all my junk and I need to scale everything down, that does't go very well I must say. I'm also a big lover of bright n' bold matte lipsticks in the form of MAC or Illamasqua. I have a super matte pink shade by the latter and I adore it! Check it out on Instagram

Watches with coloured faces are my new thanggg. I have a gold Michael Kors one with a turquoise face and its fab if your looking for something a bit different. Getting more into the holiday vibe, how fab are the scrappy sandals from River Island? Those with white skinnies, I can see it now! Not to mention the coral caged sandals from Dune. Coral is my bestie in summertime, it makes the most pasty legs look that little bit tanned. Hurray!

Jack Wills Lip Balm Trio Review

Jack Wills Lip Balm Trio Review

When I think of Jack Wills I think along the lines of branded hoodies and joggers, not beauty products and makeup brushes! So of course it was a nice surprise to see these beauties and just as any curious person would do, I decided to give them a try. I 'purchased' these in Boots on Boxing Day and I say 'purchased' because I actually got them with my advantage card points. Yay free Christmas present from me to me along with a few Ted Baker sets. If you haven't got an Advantage card yet I highly recommend you do, save up your points all year and have splurge at Christmas time. It's just delightful. 

Anyway, it is just ridiculous the amount of lip balms I own. That's lip balms, not including lipsticks etc.  I counted 12 half used Vaseline tins in my makeup case last week alone. I seem to like to open one, use it once and throw it aside. HOW BAD IS THAT? I'm being good with these beauties though, the only one I have tried is the berry one as I am trying out a new tactic, to not be so wasteful and finish one completely before opening another. This will go well.


Jack Wills Lip Balm Trio Review


In the tin the balm is raspberry pink in colour but when it is applied it goes on clear. They have quite a creamy consistency which I like as I feel that it is more moisturising. That's possibly why I keep tossing my Vaseline tins aside. I'm not a huge fan of lip balms that have a oily texture, yuck. As for staying power I feel like the balm stays on for a good amount of time. To compare to Vaseline again, that just seems to disappear on my lips whereas these Jack Wills lip balms stay on well and definitely work as far as keep chapped lips at bay-goes. 

To be honest, I'm not sure if I will like the rose one or not. That smell just reminds me of grannies perfume! But putting the actual product aside, even if I wasn't a fan of the balm themselves I just couldn't deny the packaging, I'm a sucker for it! I just love the pink and navy colour combo and the Wills branding. I also got a beaut makeup brush set which came in the little zipped case and I must say, I am impressed with all of those but one. There is always one, but I can deal with that!

No doubt Jack Wills will have something similar in a giftset this Christmas too, keep an eye out in your local Boots! In the mean time have a little nosy here at all of Jack's bits n' bobs. You know you want to.


Thank you for reading and do let me know what you think of this little trio if you own it on Twitter @thefashionsix - I'd love to hear from you!

Trend // Mix n' Match Missguided Co-Ordinates

Mix n' Match Missguided Co-Ordinates
Mix n' Match Missguided Co-Ordinates


Good morning everyoneee!

Now this is something I don't own and I have no idea why because they are are versatile. Holiday season is coming up and I'm forever stalking Missguided, Boohoo and ASOS  to pick up some new bits before I head away in August. Needs must eh? I'm all for easy style and I like something that is comfortable but still super fashionable.

I especially love the leaf print and the gold buckle tapered leg co-ords, you could definitely mix n' match these and you'd easily have three different outfits for a night out. The yellow floral one would be perfect for a sun holiday with this white lace crochet trim kimono from New Look and these beige block heel sandals from River Island. 

The only thing is, these are usually sold in two parts so depending on where you get your co-ord, it could turn out rather expensive! Not to mention trying to get your size in both parts. That is a nightmare, especially if you are like me and are two different sizes top and bottom!

What's your thoughts on these? Tweet me @thefashionsix - I'd love to hear from you!

The perfect tan-enhancing summer dress by Wearall.com

Wearall coral summer dress

Good morning everyone! I just have quick update for you all today, I just had to show you this dress! I love coral in the summer so I can't wait to get wearing this when the weather picks up (hopefully!)  This is from wearall.com which I have become obsessed with recently. I always find myself browsing their website as their clothing is so affordable. They have some gorgeous dresses, some less than £15. You heard it first here!

I was drawn to this dress because of the colour as in the natural light it makes me look a little less pale, well I think (hope) it does! I also quite like the style of the dress at the top, a high neck is my thing but could you imagine the tan (or red) lines if I was to wear this on holiday? Haha, I must remember to get the factor 30 on to prevent myself looking like a zebra. 

Secondly, I know I have platforms on here but looking back I think it would be nice with a pair of sandals and a fringed kimono to keep the chill off the shoulders, that's more stuff added to the wishlist! 

Wearall coral summer dress

Don't forget to give Wearall aa visit and I will be talking to you soon! Make sure and tweet me your thoughts @thefashionsix. I'd love to hear from you.

Real Techniques Nic's Picks 5 piece brush set review

Real Techniques Nic's Pick 5 piece brush Set review

Just what I needed, another set of makeup brushes! I saw this this little Real Techniques Limited Edition 5 piece brush set in Gordon's Chemist for £19.99 (originally £29.99) and I just can't resist a good bargain. I have been debating the 'Bold Metals' collection since they were released but these look similar and the price was far more appealing. My thinking is, if I test these babies out and I love them then I will definitely invest in some of the Bold Metals collection! After all, a good makeup brush last for ages right?

So what brushes are included in the set?

1. Real Techniques duo-fiber face brush

This is basically just a larger version of my MAC 187 Duo Fibre face brush so I knew it would be a winner before I ever tried it out as I really LOVE my MAC brush! Even my best brushes can leave foundation brush strokes on my face but these stippling brushes blend them right in and create a smooth and flawless finish. I literally wouldn't be without this, it is an essential for liquid foundations. It is especially good around the nose and eyes to prevent the product from sinking into the 'cracks' sounds lovely but you know what I mean!

2. Real Techniques cheek brush

I already own the own the normal Real Techniques blush brush and I love to use it for blush so I think I will use this one for cheek contouring. I usually find that contouring with a smaller brush can result in harsh lines that aren't easily blended as the product is so concentrated. This brush seems like a good size for quick contouring to avoid any unsightly dark lines! Aside from that, this brush seems to be very similar to the Expert face brush, only a bit bigger in size. So I suppose I could also use this one for foundation if I wanted to. I love how Real Techniques brushes can be multi-purpose. In fact, I have so many brushes that I use in a different way rather than how they were intended! 

3. Real Techniques base shadow brush

I suppose you can't really go wrong with this one, a simple brush that can effortlessly apply eyeshadow all over the eyelid. I like to use a light mate shade just under my brow bone and in the corners of each eye to reflect light and to cover dark shadows which can make me look so tired at times! I will 100% use this brush for this as my current eyeshadow brush is N07 and it has definitely had its day! 

4. Real Techniques angled shadow brush

This beauty is exclusive to the set and I think it will be good to use when I want to create a smokey eye look. The angled head of the brush will make it easy for me to apply a dark eyeshadow colour into the crease of the eye socket like below! the bristles are quite tightly packed in this brush so that will create a really intense look with a highly pigmented colour. perfect for creating a look for going out at night!

5. Real Techniques eyeliner brush

This little brush is also an exclusive! All I can think of is how great would this be to create a cat-eye with some winged gel eyeliner? The line is so harsh and with a bit of scotch tape just think of the amazing look you could create. Ahh, can't cope! Aside from that, I like to apply some colour not only on my eyelids but also along the lash line. I find that this opens the eye up and it just results in a more 'finished' look. 

To summarise...


pros:

  • The price. FIVE Real Techniques brushes for £19.99 at Gordon's Chemist  You really can't be bad to that. The set is available to purchased on the Boots website but you'll have to fork out £29.99 there. In saying that, you could always treat yourself with your Boots Advantage points and they won't cost you a penny!
  • The duo-fibre and eyeliner brushers in particular are AMAZING.
  • You get two exclusive brushes that you can't purchase anywhere else.
  • How good do they look? I'm not going to lie, part of me just likes nice things to sit on my dressing table! these fit the bill 100%.
Cons:
  • I can't help but feel like they are a bit..... cheap? (GASP) What I mean is, they definitely don't have the same weight in them as the original brushes that you buy separately. 
  • The three smaller brushes can be kind of hard to hold and keep steady as they are so thin. It won't stop me from using them though, i'll just get used to it!
