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!

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!

Subtle ombre sunset lip

i2style

i2style

Recently, I’ve been reminiscing about the Illamasqua Ombre pink lip, I created around this time last year! Consequently, it was only a matter of time before I tested out a new one! Seeing as we’re currently in a slight transitional, seasonal period, it can be a little tricky knowing what to wear, let alone what lip colour to rock! So, as a salute to Summer…as, let’s face it, Mr Sunshine has definitely not got his hat on anymore, I decided to create a subtle sunset ombre creation.

Using x4 of my favourite lipsticks, as well as a lip liner and a dap of eyeshadow shimmer, this look can be created in under 5 minutes, with ease! Making sure your lips are marvellously moisturised, simply line them with your nearest, darkest colour and work the lipsticks in from there! I wanted to create an almost metallic/light reflecting effect, upon the lightest part of the lip, so for this I used my perviously stated gold eyeshadow cream formula eyeshadow, (this one was from illamasqua) – proving great versatility, within a product, most would only imagine being good for one purpose!

I love this subtle look. I can imagine wearing it on some of the last Summer Evenings, we’ll hopefully encounter. I also like how it matches my red sparkly dress, (of course I planned that one) and new ombre hair! If you’ve created similar looks this Summer, or are experimenting with lip colours for fall already, let me know in the comments below. I’d love to know!

Styling up with Smiley!

i2style Smiley

i2style Smiley

I have been a fan of Smiley since I was a wee little nipper! Its 90’s nostalgia, fills me with fun and fabulous memories! Yet, since I attended their AW14 press day at Boxpark – London, whilst interning, I was able to see a huge transition, where Smiley’s design concepts, incorporated more modern day trends, in a much more unique manner! The pieces I saw were wearable, fresh, and still managed to elicit the true Smiley stamp, throughout! (Mentioning that I dribbled over almost every garment and accessory, is possibly an understatement)…I was impressed to say the least.

Since then, I have not only included some footage from the press event, within one of my latest vlogs, I decided to style up two of some pretty sassy Smiley caps! The colours of the caps worked perfectly, with the outfit I had in mind for this shoot. Where I live; in Birmingham, England, we are currently in the seasonal transitional period, where by our Summer days are no longer filled with bright and bold block print cocktail dresses, or warm and hazy pimms Summer evenings…no sir! They are beginning to feel more crisp and much, much cooler! Consequently wearing a more monotoned combination, seemed the best way to go, and with the slight pops of colour the caps displayed, the outfit became complete, (in a much more complimentary fashion, than I had originally envisioned)!

Take a look at the images shown below, to see the clothing combo and slight colour flashes. I feel they work great when moving from a Summer wardrobe, into a more Autumnal one. The greatest element to an outfit such as this one, is being able to layer! Plus, with the added awesomeness of a Minion in Chanel on my top, my life is complete :p. I hope you’ve all had a beautiful Summer so far, do let me know what pieces you’ve been putting together for this current season, and what brands you’ll been heading for, for AW14, i’d love to know!

– Caps | Smiley – Minion Top | Camden Market – Long Cardigan | River Island – Skort | Topshop – Shoes | Tamaris Shoe Party – Lips | Mac Russian Red –

Fashion interview with Rosie Fortescue!

i2style and Rosie Fortescue

I was recently approached by the magnificent McCann PR team, and given the rather opulent opportunity to interview Made in Chelsea star, Rosie Fortescue, and Joseph Massie; a five-time Chelsea Flower show, award winning Floral Artist! The interviews were to take place in my hometown of Solihull, for the purpose of launching Touchwood’s Spring Summer Fashion Season, (Solihull’s go to Shopping Centre), and one of Joseph’s latest Floral creations!

Focussing more on ‘horti-couture’, rather than horticulture, Joseph Massie hand made one of the most divine fresh Floral gowns, for Rosie to unveil! The detailing, the colours and the whole composition of the piece was brilliantly breathtaking…and I can’t believe that I also got to interview the Man behind the vision.

Being an avid Fashion Blogger and fellow creative, I have always been a fan of Rosie Fortescue’s Blog, ‘atfashionforte‘, and her overall style, as seen on reality show, Made in Chelsea. So, when I had the opportunity to speak with her, about all things Fashion, I was in my element! We shared our interest for mixing up High Street & Designer items, styling the Floral trend and genuinely got very excited about an exclusive Clothing & Nail line, that Rosie will be launching in the near future! i2style readers, you’re hearing this first! (I know, I feel privileged too!). Sharing an additional love for Beauty, I couldn’t help but throw in a couple of questions regarding Rosie’s go-to products, to pair with this Season’s fab Floral trend.

See the video posted below, to find out more and make sure you’re subscribed to my Youtube Channel to be the first to be notified of my commencing interview with Joseph & more!
