It’s no secret that I’m a lover of the high-street and the vast array of fashion and beauty products available, season upon season. When I found out H&M were set to launch their brand new AW15 beauty range, I must say, I was immediately impressed. From the stunning product photography, to the simplistically chic packaging, I’m intrigued to find out more about the product quality themselves!

 Inspired by seasonal trends and colours, the launch includes a full range of make-up, haircare, body care and beauty styling essentials. The launch comes at a time when it is easier than ever before to create a personal style statement with beauty products, whether the desired look is natural, classic or more dramatic. There will be new, dedicated beauty areas in stores for customers to experiment with the latest make-up trends and develop a personal and unique look.

We are very excited to launch H&M Beauty. It’s an opportunity to be inventive, creative and to have fun with colour that inspires us,” says Sara Wallander, Concept Designer, H&M Beauty.

There will be over 700 beautifully packaged make-up products in the collection, with seasonal drops of new and limited edition colour palettes throughout the year.  The new assortment, which will replace existing beauty products at H&M, will also include two subsidiary collections: a premium beauty line and a conscious range of Ecocert-approved sustainable products.

With Topshop usually being my no.1 go to for high-street make-up, could H&M shoot to the top of my future wish lists? Either way, I’m excited to find out! What beauty products do you go for from the high-street and are you looking forward to the new aw15 collections? Let me know in the comments below!

Be summer ready with the Netatmo June

i2style netatmo june

The summer season is almost upon us and many plans are being made, that admittedly, revolve around the sun! Whether it’s a holiday you’ve got booked, or plans to attend a festival, it’s now that we really need to think twice about the potential damage being done to our skin. With the health and wellness industry on the rise, and the wearable technology world set to boom, it’s products like the Netatmo June, that are truly going to make an impact!

i2style wearable technology

As a health conscious nation, we are aware of the implications the sun’s rays can cause to not only our insides, but on the outside too. It’s no lie that us beauty lovers have a strict skincare routine, to prevent those lurky lines and dry skin, and part of that routine includes putting on a number of anti-wrinkle creams and SPF included moisturisers, but probably don’t take as much time to put on that all important high factor sun cream…unless we’re beginning to feel the burn.

Sending notifications to your smart phone, the June is an incredibly exciting new wearable device. With an opulent outer aesthetic and a killer inner intelligence system, using UVA and UVB sensors, the June is able to measure the amount of sun exposure to your skin, making it a pretty sassy way to monitor when you should be topping up on your sun protection and staying in the shade!

To my delight, the June is now available to buy in the beauty haven we call Space NK. Priced at £118, this nifty wearable piece is available in three classic colour ways, including gold, platinum and gunmetal. Using the free downloadable app, June is able to tell you when to re-apply SPF and at what level. A pretty valuable purchase if you think about the long term health benefits. This sort of device is something I know i’d check as much as my emails, especially when spending more and more time outdoors this summer.

Vogue’s Sarah Brown: If you were stuck on a desert island forever and allowed one product, what would that product be?

“On a desert island: Sunscreen. And every other week a new delivery would be airdropped, probably by drone”.

I’d love to know your thoughts on the beauty industry meeting with wearable tech and if this type of product is at the top of your summer wish list!

New Jewellery Finds

When a good piece of jewellery catches my eye, it has a delicate yet statement quality about it – a piece that can be worn from day to night, with a little helping hand from an outfit switch up. I’ve been after a few new pieces for a while now, yet nothing grabbed me as much as these two.

I’ve lusted over jewellery designs from the likes of Lily-Kamper and such, predominantly over the perfect cyber world some call Pinterest, yet nothing I had seen in a while, which was in my price range (aka high street or nothing), seemed quirky enough. Then on a fantastic weekend to London with my girls, as Topshop as the first pit stop from Oxford Street tube station, an array or jewellery such as this screamed at me at first glance. (It was love).

The marble details within the design, combined with its unusual shape and simplistic choker all work harmoniously…and I’m thinking how I can harmonise it with that wardrobe of mine :p. With jewellery like that, I think it’s important to remember that less is more’. I’ve already worn this piece to work over buttoned up black and white shirts, with crop tops and long skirts in the evenings and even over jumpers. It’s an item I know I can wear time and time again, season upon season. And for just under £15 – I think I found a right gem. (ha ‘gem’ lol).

My next item, is something I’d been wanting to get my hands on for ages, however went back and forth continually, contemplating whether something like this would suit me and if it would be appropriate to pair with my everyday looks. The only way to find out, was to bite the bullet and just buy one. So, Asos – the heaven of online shopping, came through again, with this little beauty.

Now, I must say, it was a difficult choice, as Asos have SO many to choose from, but I wanted to try something more diddy and delicate, so for under a tenner, this piece was purchased. It did take me a while to get the hang of how it actually fit on my head, as I kept letting go of the chains when gripping them in place, but I soon learn’t and absolutely adore it!

I can’t wait to wear it on a night out soon. Have you got any new statement jewellery that you know you’ll be wearing time and time again? I’d love to know! Big loves, Holly x

Monochromes v Citrus

After a little break, I’m delving straight back into some of my favourite trends for Spring, Summer 15. Today I want to talk about monochromes v citrus! Being an avid monochromatic lover, subtle pops of additional colour is the way I like to do things – and this colour way is possibly one of my favourites ever!

Gemini-Woman are one of Masai Clothing’s largest stockists in the UK & EU…and being lucky enough to work closely with the brand daily, I wanted to share some of my most loved pieces from their most recent collection. This citrus combo fabulousness is included within everyday essentials, from dresses to jackets, to super on trend culottes and leggings.

Mix your prints and focus on statement jewellery to give your simplistic looks an edge that will take you from day to night. Festival Season is also just round the corner, which some of these pieces would be perfect for! Have you seen Masai’s new collection? If so, have you spotted anything that you fancy adding to your new season wardrobe? I’d love to know :)

The latest shoe trend

i2style

i2style

I recently wrote a guest post for Kovert Designs where I expressed my love and interest for Festive Fall Fashion. One of the trends that I spoke about, is undoubtedly a wardrobe must have for this celebratory Season. Ofcourse, I’m talking about the classic over the knee boot! Offering endless versatility in terms of practicality and wearability, these signature boots can be styled with skinny jeans, oversized jumpers or mini skirts – giving you a powerful twist to an every day look.

Being a delicate 5ft2, with size 3 feet, I wondered if the over the knee boot would swamp someone of my height and shoe size, however after some thorough ‘research trips’ to the shops, I can confirm, that to my delight, they flatter most! These boots are everywhere, and since we’re nearing the January Sales, I suggest hunting for your perfect pair. I ended up purchasing some from New Look – priced at £44.95 – however I’ve found ones much cheaper and more expensive online, so heeled or not, go with what you’d be most comfortable in.

I also decided to head to Pinterest, to see how others were Styling theres. It was here where I looked into Ad Campaigns, Catwalk looks and Celebrity outfits. I’m now pretty confident that whatever the occasion, anyone from Madonna to you CAN rock this look! Take a peek at some of the images below to see this latest trend in all its editorial and catwalk beauty!
