Black and Nude

I got my other Alexandra Grecco things in the post last week. I got The Magic Petit Puff in Black and the Medium Helena Bow in Nude. The Magic Petit Puff comes in black and champagne and the Medium Helena Bow comes in yellow, black, nude ivory and teal so far. I didn't get these for any special occasion, but now I'm thinking of wearing the bow in my hair for my sister's wedding. I've found the dress I want to wear, I'm getting it made to order by a dress maker on etsy (hopefully) and I've also found the shoes I want to wear so I can't wait to show you what they all look like! Check out Alexandra's etsy shop if you get a chance, she has some gorgeous Spring accessories at the moment!






I wanted to show you one of my favourite nail polishes at the moment. It's by a German brand called Catrice and it's called 'Clay-ton My Hero'. It's sort of a taupe/mink colour. Catrice are a great brand for inexpensive nail polishes and cosmetics in general, I haven't tried any of their make up yet but their nail lacquers are really great, the colours are amazing. I have blood red, silver and mauve colours too which I'll show you at some stage. I'm a bit obsessed with Nail Polish at the moment!

Also I died my hair again last week with L'oréal Casting Creme Gloss in Amber. I really love how the colour turned out, it's sort of an auburn colour because my hair is naturally medium brown so obviously it didn't turn out exactly Amber. You can see the colour really well in the photos above, it's a semi-permanent so it only lasts about 8 weeks, but that's as long as I care to commit to a colour right now!

Hope you're having a great weekend, Donnacha will be home soon and I can't wait to see him!

  11. Emma, you are so photogenic. You look absolutely stunning in those photos - I know I should have been focusing on the fascinators, but you're just so pretty! The fascinators are gorgeous - it's so nice to find something so unusual and handmade. I look forward to seeing the dress you're having made at some point in the future too.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I appreciate every single one!
