FASHION | BOOHOO FASHION RESOLUTIONS

I'll come to writing my 2015 reflection posts even though it is the end of January, but 2015 was a big year for me. So I have a lot of reflecting to do, so bear with me peeps. One of the things that evolved last year was my style, yes I experimented a hell of alot and entering my 25th year on this earth, made me want to embrace the woman that I am.  What I really wanted to do was embrace my sexy, but in a classy way. One way I will do this is, is  show off my shoulders and chest area more. I have always covered these areas up, not consciously, but my fave clothes don't really show off these areas, and with a new year and all, I wanted to change that. So, my friends over at Boohoo, gave me the challenge of taking the plunge and challenging myself to actually do this. So, with my nifty budget bestowed onto me, I opted for this monochrome playsuit and the velvet bodysuit, to embrace the sexy that I hidden for too long.

The Lissa stripe, off the shoulder playsuit is a wonderful piece, and versatile, with it's monochrome colour palette. Not to deviate too hard from my edgy personal style, I paired the outfit with my sparkly tights worn here, and my patent red boots worn here.

Now this playsuit can be dressed up or down and I decided for a casual look, but I definitely will wear this for an evening out with my strappy H&M blue heels, that I rocked last summer. Now, I have been looking for  a bodysuit, ever since I saw my girl Bunmi rock one on a night out! My goodness did she SLAY, so I wanted to emulate that in my own, Jess way. Pairing the  Jess bodysuit ( it's named after me, it was meant to be) with my blue jeans and patent boots, completed the understated sexy I was going for! 

BOOHOO VELVET BODYSUIT

I had a bit of a wardrobe malfunction, as the jeans nearly slipped off during shooting, so next time I will wear a belt. But overall, I am happy with the outfits. I think I will revamp this with a bomber jacket and my notorious leather skirt next time!

All in all, I am liking this new fashion resolution, like most resolutions I'll try and keep to it, but I can't promise I will.  How about you, do you have any fashion resolutions?

BEAUTY | MAKE UP REVOLUTION BEYOND FLAWLESS PALETTE AND COLOUR BLOCK GIFT SET

The holidays bring a sense of calm, and a  sense of appreciation for those around you. Before my blog break, I was asked by beauty brand, Just my look with a Christmas themed project. This project,  had key bloggers partnered up for a beauty blogger secret Santa themed giveaway. Now I am a sucker for a good project, and giving back to other bloggers is what I love the most. With a budget of £20, I was paired with Helen and after having a sneaky peek through her blog, I realized that this girl was a lover of nail polish, eyeshadow and mascara. So I got her mini opi nail polishes, a nude eyeshadow palette and Max Factor mascara. I am glad you loved it Helen!

I have to say the presents Helen got me were on point! Everyone knows I love my eye shadows and red lippie and my goodness did this girl go to town. Choosing my gifts from Make Up revolution, my girl got me the beyond flawless palette, a beautiful collection of nudes with shimmers and mattes. Perfect for the smokey eye look for the day time and night time. You did well Helen! I have heard so many good things about this palette and I cannot wait to create some fabulous creations with this.

Next, I received the make up revolution colour blocks gift set in propoganada. The gift set includes 1 lipgloss, a red lipstick and red nail polish. Now if you know me enough, you know I am a red lip girl, and I am so happy to have received this, as you can't have too many reds right? Anyway, thanks Helen, you are the real MVP.
