SS14 | Pretty in pastel

i2style

It isn’t often I wear a hue of blue, but today I dared to be different, well…sort of! This seasons pastel trend is huge, consequently, my interest in rocking an item of clothing, evoking this magnificent pastel tone, has rapidly grown throughout the past couple of months. I have had this pastel Blue coloured full length playsuit, just sitting in my wardrobe for almost a year now and was a lovely little find from Asos. I knew the structure of the outfit was enough to make a statement on its own, so I was quite pleased that the colour was so delicate, which I thought was very wearable.

In this post, I wanted to prove that paired with a paler complexion, it most certainly can be worn all year round. Most peoples perceptions of pastel colours, is one that is seen to suit more of a tanned skin tone. However, with some complimentary makeup, hair and accessories, anyone can wear it!

I hope to do many more Spring, Summer 2014 trend/outfit posts within the next coming weeks, so do let me know if there is anything in particular you would like to see me post/style up. I have really enjoyed creating this post for you style lovers, and look forward to making the most of the more perhaps un-loved items with my wardrobe, as I know there are some treasures in there, I just have to delve rather deep :).

What are your favourite pastel colours? Leave me links, i’d love to see your outfits too.

Bloggers Love Fashion week | No.1 Leicester Square

Hello beauties! How are we?

I wanted to write this post to let you know about a blogging event I attended in London, Leicester Square…No.1 to be precise! The incredible Danielle from Bloggers Love (check out @Bloggers_Love on Twitter), hosts and organises events every month, and last month was a very exciting one. The first ever Bloggers Fashion Week came to London, accompanied by some spectacular Beauty & Fashion Brands.

I only managed to get down to London for one of the days, which was the last one and from what I could gather, was the most Beauty orientated day, which being a Fashion & Beauty lover, suited me down to the ground. Some of these oh so talented Beauty Brands that showcased their latest ranges, skills and creative work included The Parlour, Umberto Giannini & HiBrow!

I met some fabulous ladies with terrific Style and Beauty advice and I felt rather privileged to be a part of such a buzzing and refreshing atmosphere. I went to the event with fellow Blogger Sophie, from Eskay Beauty. We also vlogged the event, as we both have new Youtube Channels, so if you’d like to go and check them out, please do! (My channel is hollysi2style, if you didn’t know already)!

My favourite part of the event was getting glittered up by the lovely ladies from The Palour! They focus on glitter Art, if you will, and they sure did make a statement with all that sparkle! I chose to go for a slightly gum metal piece, to match my monotoned, greyish outfit, and was very pleased with the result…I even went to Bella Italia sporting the fine glittered look, post event! :D. There was also a Catwalk show, Photo Booth with Motilo and photos on Marshmallows by Boomf! What more could you wish for, for a fun filled time with fellow Bloggers.

Sophie, from Eskay Beauty also had the opportunity to try out a new sensational way of gaining back a natural eyebrow, if you’re an over plucker’er or just suffer from the case of a patchy eyebrow. The talented lady demonstrating this used eyebrow extensions, and they were incredible! I helped sophie film some of the work she was carrying out on her brows and I must say, they looked mighty fine!

I met some terrific ladies that night and got to have a good chin wag with Bloggers who I’ve been meaning to do so with, for a good while now! Those included AJ O’dudu, Beth & Katie! (Click the names to link to their Blogs). I hope to bump into them again very soon.

I’d like to say a huge thank you and well done to Bloggers Love, for putting on a fantastic array of events so far! I can’t wait to attend more of them in the commencing future. Please see the images below for my OOTD and snaps from the event.

Big Loves,

Hollybobs x

Pucker up Princesses! Revlon’s Colourburst balm swatches

As an addition to my last post, as promised, I stated that I would show my latest lip product purchases in its true form upon the lips, so you can get a really good idea of the colour pigmentation and finish. I am so happy with all of them and can see these becoming a favourite of mine, when needing to whip one into my bag, in a rush!

I would wear all of these on different occasions, some are more night time appropriate than others, but I love that, as it gives me versatility to switch them up every now and again. So, below are the Revlon Colourburst Matte Lip Balms, swatched upon the lips. Let me know which one is your favourite colour, as I literally can’t choose! I’m really looking forward to the next coming months too, and hopefully the Sun will brighten my complexion, as I think these would look even more stunning with a sun kissed, natural glow!

Colours shown from top to bottom are – 215 | Shameless – 220 | Showy – 210 | Unapologetic – 245 | Audacious

P.s do excuse the little programme tabs up placed at the bottom of each image, I filmed this, then screen shotted and must have caught the names of the programme whilst doing so, oopsie :). Also there is one of the colours that I think I have left at work, but will be sure to post a pic whilst wearing it upon my twitter or instagram when I’ve re located it!

Big loves, Holly x

My chosen Valenties Day makeup

i2style valentines

i2style valentines

Last week I asked you guys on here and on twitter, what Valentines look I should go for out of the showcased options (all inspirational images from Pinterest). I was very happy to recreate the second look, with a deep dark lustrous lip, and a golden eye. It’s a very pretty look yet it has an element of intensity, which I love and felt was very appropriate for Valentines day/night.

I created a soft smokey golden eye using my Naked 3 palette, which I adore! And I used Nars for creating the deep lip, with a bit of Tanya Burrs lipgloss over the top, to add a slight hint of sheen to them, the lipgloss I used was called exotic island, and the colour is stunning on its own, let alone ontop of another lip product! I have also created a video tutorial of how I created the look, and aimed for it to be up today but I’m having technical issues exporting and uploading it, for some reason, but it hopefully will be up soon, once technology decides to play ball! I hope you all had an amazing valentines day whatever you got up too!

What Valentines look of love shall I go for? | Pinterest edition

i2stylevalentines3

i2stylevalentines3

I can scour the wonders of Pinterest, daily! The inspirational images of beautifully perfected hair, makeup and lustrous outfit looks, have swallowed me up and now, my heads in a bit of a spin…in a good way. I love how inspiration and iconic photographs of others can enable yourself to adapt, admire and to become influenced and intrigued in more ways than one!

Valentines Day is just ONE day away! (woop woop), and despite me still not knowing what me and my boyfriend will be getting up to, it’s a perfect excuse to get dressed up, embrace my femininity and enhance all my favourite features, and you should too! However, I am in one little pickle. Due to our magical, procrastination tool, Pinterest, I decided to create a board, inspired by the loved up looks of others and choose a look from one of the images/a little something from a few of them shown below, all for the purpose of re creating my own lusted up look, specifically tailored towards this special occasion. And, I would like your help!

Below are just a few images i’ve taken from my Pinterest board, with makeup looks that I would like to choose from. I could go with a girly nude lip and smouldering smokey eyes, a Hollywood glamour red lip and exaggerated eyelashes, or finally a more natural complexion and a deep, dark, wine stained pout! Which one should I go for?! (Which ever one I do, will be filmed for my next youtube video :), so let me know in the comments below which one you think would suit me best.
