Farfetch Discover - Win a £400 voucher!

Farfetch is a great company where you can find thousands of luxury designer items, all in one place. With huge names such as Michael Kors, Chloe and Valentino from 300 independent boutiques in some the world's most fashionable cities. Recently, they have re-launched the Farfetch Discover app for Apple devices, making it easy and fun to search for designer items on the go or in the comfort of your own home. Keep reading to find out about the app, a wishlist full of new season picks, and how to win a £400 voucher to spend on the app!

This new app is super easy to navigate and faster to browse. As soon as the homepage is loaded, you can go straight to clothes, shoes or bags. As well as that, you can find the newest items which are updated weekly. There is also seasonal trends and themes such winter items or pre-collections for the next season! I love how there's so much to access just from the homepage, making it easy and saving time (depending how much time you spend browsing the amazing clothes!).

Let's move on to the wishlists. It can be tempting to splash out on a beautiful piece of clothing, its up to you of course. However, I think investing in a classic accessory can be just as valuable, and more wearable. As well as that, a basic t-shirt with a designer logo on it can be used over and over again, but still make a fashionable statement. Therefore, I created a wishlist of some key wardrobe staples. Black is a safe choice as it can be worn with almost every colour and look so sophisticated, but if you want to add a pop of colour that still goes with your wardrobe and style then go for it!

 - Saint Laurent 'Paris' Shoulder Bag - Chloé 'Drew' Shoulder Bag - Valentino Garavani 'Rockstud' Pumps - No.21 logo oversized t-shirt - Balmain logo print tank top - Michael Kors Medium 'Gracie' Tote - Chloe 'Lauren' Ballerinas - Burberry 'House Check' Scarf -
Last but not least - competition time! If you click this link right here you could win a £400 giveaway to spend on the app. What more could you ask for?

Have an amazing new year!

Christmas Reds

Nothing beats a red lipstick at Christmas time, it's the ultimate colour for Christmas. Here's a selection of reds from my make-up collection. Most of them are from the drugstore so this post is fairly budget  friendly - handy at this time of year!

There are two matte shades, and two that are more glossy. The Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in 'Standout' is a beautiful cherry red. It lasts for ages which is great for those Christmas parties. For £7.99, you can't really go wrong for an amazing (affordable) Christmas red. I wear this one the most so it's my personal favourite.

If you'd like to opt for a brighter red, Bourjois' Rouge Edition Velvet in 'Hot Pepper' is a great alternative. The applicator makes it really easy to apply and you get plenty of colour with one coat. It's not as long lasting as the Revlon balm, but nothing to worry about too much. Luckily, one thing both of these products have in common is that they don't dry out your lips, nothing worse than chapped lips in the winter! (But it's probably best to apply lip balm beforehand anyway!)

Moving onto the glossy reds, I love this No7 High Shine Lip Crayon in 'Statement'. It's shiny and has tiny flecks of glitter, which can be nice at Christmas. However, the shimmer is very subtle so don't be too put off. The colour is obviously red but I've noticed that it has a slight pink undertone to it. As well as that, the formula feels nice and moisturising on the lips.

We finish with the only high end edition to the collection. This is one of Clinique's Colour Pop Lipsticks in 'Cherry Pop'. It's amazing. As you might be able to guess, it's a pure cherry red which is so gorgeous. The creamy formula is so nice and the packaging looks really sophisticated. I got as a gift from a magazine about a month ago, but you can by the full size one here.

Christmas Sparkle For Your Nails

The build up to Christmas is well and truly here, (I've even got the festive tunes blaring out whilst writing this post!) and it's so exciting. This time of year, there is glitter everywhere in time for the party season. Clothes, decorations, make-up and even your hair. As well as that, we can't forget nails - there are so many different colours and textures to experiment with. Here are some of the ones in my collection...

Of course, you can't beat red at this time of year, and this is basically Christmas in a bottle. Look how sparkly this China Glaze nail polish is! 'Ring in the Red' would look amazing with a number of colours: red for a classic Christmas look, white/cream for a Santa or candy cane inspired look, dark green like a Christmas tree, or black for a little bit of colour. Red is probably my favourite colour to wear because it's so traditional.

The next colour is perfect for the rose gold lovers out there. 'Bijoux' is from H&M's fairly recent beauty range (I'm sure you can purchase them separately as well). This is so pretty, I'd pair it with a neutral colour for a more sophisticated look such as cream or beige.

It's no surprise that there's a Barry M nail polish here, and this adorable light pink is called Princess. They couldn't have had a better name! This has a textured effect, so feels quite rough and is really interesting. Shifting from pretty pink to deep purple, this glitter polish from Leighton Denny looks so luxurious. The flecks of blue and silver glitter are memorizing. This has another regal name 'Party at the Palace'. How do people pick such accurate names? Genius.

We finish with this incredible dark silver glitter from China Glaze in 'Tinsel Town'. Yes, Tinsel Town. I seriously can't get over these names. It's a slightly edgier alternative to the typically girly colours in this post, but still so beautiful.

Which one is your favourite from this selection? Do you like a bit of sparkle at this time of year?

Barry M x3

Barry M is no stranger to this blog - they're my favourite drugstore brand for nail polishes.
I saw this set of three nail polishes for £10 in River Island. It would make a great Christmas present, perhaps for someone who isn't a fan of bright nail polishes, or just simply really suits these colours! This little set contains nail polishes from the different ranges that Barry M offer: Gelly Hi Shine, Speedy Quick Dry and the original range. I think you really get your money's worth in this nail polish set, and you save nearly £1 compared to buying these separately in the drugstore. With the expense of Christmas, any money saved at this time of year can help!

I really like the colour range of this set, three different colours that are great if you want more of a neutral, everyday look. The first one is from Barry M's amazing Gelly Hi Shine range (£3.99), in the shade 'Almond'. This is a lovely light taupe shade, nice and neutral, but the formula makes it extra shiny.

The second nail polish is a pretty pink called 'Ballerina' (£2.99). How cute is the name? I like the fact that it's not too light, bright or dark. However, it's still noticeable and a more sophisticated, neutral shade of pink. This is my favourite nail polish from this set. The original nail polish range is still just as good as the others!

Last but not least is this adorable baby blue from the Speedy Quick Dry range, with the name 'Eat My Dust' (£3.99). With a cute colour and a quick dry formula, this nail polish is surely a winner.

I think this set is such good value for money and would make a perfect little Christmas present for someone special. Or you can treat yourself to a few new nail polishes this year. I remember seeing a set of brighter nail polishes as well, so there's something for anyone.
