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,

New Youtube Video | The Fashion Tag

i2style

i2style

I actually uploaded this video a couple of weeks ago, however for some reason or another, I didn’t think of posting it onto my blog to let all you Fashion style lovelies know about it! It was my first ever video to be uploaded to my new channel ‘hollysi2style’ (except for my intro), so I was a little nervous! Yet in true i2style form, I soon became more comfortable and due to my passions for Fashion, I adored talking about my one true love!

I spoke about a number of Fashion related thangs, from what my signature style is, to which trend I would like to see come back or stay, and of course, all answers are true from the heart and I can’t think of doing anything more enjoyable than being able to talk to you  lovely people in a more personal and visual way!

Since this video, I have uploaded a couple more and would love to know your thoughts! What sort of videos do you love to watch? And who are your go to Youtubers, when needing a little Fashion/Beauty ‘inspo’? I’d love to know. Thank you again, in advance to anyone who has watched, liked, commented and more importantly, SUBSCRIBED so far! I’m ecstatic that even 1 of you wants to watch my early youtube day ramblings 😀 – It honestly means more to me than you will ever know and I can’t wait to do more!

Huge loves, Hollybobs x

Introducing Rosalina Nacken | Luxury lusting!

I2style

i2style

With Valentines Day commencing shortly and a number of luxurious items catching my eye, I wanted to bring the new Rosalina Nacken collection to your attention! If you’ve read my recent luxury Christmas lust list, or watched my recent Youtube Video, where I took part in ‘The Fashion Tag’, then you will certainly know how much of a fan I am of high quality, statement, accessory items! Within ‘The Fashion Tag’, I actually stated how Phillip Lim was my current favourite designer, in regards to his heavenly designed handbags…yet I may very well have just found myself a new one.

Rosalina Nacken is a new discovery of mine, and a quickly ranking favourite! Rosalina specialises in luxury Italian leather handbags with combined tablet pouches, named The ‘Shelle Classica’ & ‘The Shelle Futura’ – ‘A two in one elegant solution’. Perfect for your everyday needs, these beautifully handcrafted bags, ooze Italian couture, which, lets face it, would excite any Fashion enthusiast! I would adore something so practical, as an addition to my everyday working outfit. It’s sleek, chic and sophisticated look gives it that professional feel, which would not only impress visually, but would make my organisational necessities much more of a joy to sort out!

Personally, with an on the go, day to day working life, I couldn’t think of anything better than carrying around with me something so aesthetically and practically functional. I find myself struggling on a daily basis, whilst attempting to fit in my much needed iPad/life, as well as my diary, various other means of technology, and of course, my little makeup bag! I dislike purchasing bulky bags & really need something easy and exceptionally organised, where I can quickly pull out an item with ease and efficiency, so, something like this is sure to be my number 1 item on my next luxury lust list.

Rosalina’s website is also a pleasure to navigate around. With background stories about her passions behind the innovative design, a link to her online store and a full description & video showcasing her exquisite, enriching and inspirational ‘movement’ idea, plus more…Rosalina quotes – “Move your life and life will move with you”. To me, this evokes a clear, intelligent and simplistic idea about the forever changing environment, which many professionals and on the go Ladies will know all about! Consequently, I am sure this new concept of Fashion and function will excite and intrigue, and has certainly caught my eye!

Do make sure you keep an eye out for my up & coming Valentines lust list, where this will be sure to show, and if you’re aware of any new designers, which you have found to ooze qualities of innovation, yet still acknowledging todays Fashionable needs and styles, let me know, I’d love to see them.

Black & Gold Luxe Outfit

i2styleheaderblackngold

i2style

This look is something that i’ve wanted to put together for a while now. I wanted to create something that showed off that sense of sophistication, an element of luxury and something that’s still bang on trend, using predominantly black with a hint of gorgeous burnt orange or gold.

I created a makeup look to compliment the look, using my recent Naked 3, Urban Decay palette. It’s such a beautiful palette, filled with rose golds, which have a pure warming undertone. I also wanted to use a contrasting and statement lipstick, so I chose to use this vibrant orange from the Makeup store (Carnaby Street).

The coat shown within my images, pulls the look together, and, for me, is my favourite item of the whole look! From River Island, this chic, faux fur, feathered, black and gold embellished piece, not only screams occasion, but it elicits something of a richer quality and design. I adore it! I paired it with a simple black shirt, from Topshop, and a similarly embellished black and gold skirt, also from Topshop (in their HQ sample sale). My belt, featured before within this blog post, is also from River Island.

To me, an outfit like this should be worn at a special occasion within the winter months. It’s not too formal, yet is still very elegant, classy and has an edge of high end fashion to it, despite all the items being from the hightstreet! It just proves how inexpensive an outfit can be, just with the right accompaniments and a striking lip!

If you’ve found any classic black and gold items recently and have posted about them on your blog, leave me a link…i’d love to see them! :)

Big loves, Holly x
