Kendall Jenner // Vogue January 2015

How insane does it sound to say 2015?! Where has this year gone? I have noticed my fashion posts get more attention than my beauty posts here on Magazines and Dreams so today's post is about an editorial Kendall Jenner did for Vogue US in the January 2015 (!) issue shot by David Sims. This post features my favourite looks from this editorial, let me know what type of fashion posts you would like to see in the comments!

Proenza Schouler

Hilfiger Collection



Michael Kors

This editorial was to show this seasons crop jackets so I have added underneath the designer/brand of each crop jacket. I love this shot especially the second image that snake skin skirt is to die for ($890 is abit out of my price range). Kendall also had a editorial in Vogue US December 2014 and I am so proud of how much she is accomplishing considering all the hate she gets. Hope you enjoyed this post, I want to start doing posts on editorials I like considering I buy an unhealthy amount of magazines.

Christmas Spirit

As Christmas is quite literally around the corner I thought I would do a post on Christmas. To start with do you like the new blog design? I realise this is not Christmas related but I love it and its alot more professional than my old one and its main colours are pink & blue which are my favourite colours so its pretty much perfect.

Today I got my first official Christmas present from one of my friends in college as we did secret santa and I received Love & Wilde hand cream in honey & vanilla, Baby Lips & Barry M nail polish in 'Berry Cosmo'. I was beyond happy with these gifts because they are all my favourite things and I actually don't own that Baby Lip's which is surprising. I also featured my Kate Moss nail polish in this post because I am currently wearing it and its very festive, its also my first Kate Moss Rimmel product and I love it! Definitely going to pick up the lipsticks sometime.

I wanted to get some super christmassy photos for this post but honestly my room doesn't look that festive, I have a blue tree with tinsel on it as I broke my lights for it (oops) but I love having colourful trees, for the past few years I've had a pink christmas tree but sadly its legs broke. I also have pear baubles which I've had for years now and I absolutely love them.

I never normally wrap presents to be honest, I'm more of a gift bag person because its less hassle but I decided I'm going to wrap all my presents this year in adorable Disney wrapping paper, I'm still waiting for alot of presents to come as I ordered them off Amazon so when they come I'm going to have so many gifts under that tree! I'm feeling the Christmas spirit now as I wasn't feeling very festive at the beginning of December like I normally do but I cannot wait for Christmas to come now and of course the January Sales!

Rimmel // Brow Products

In August I posted a review of the Rimmel Brow This Way Clear Gel and it became one of my most popular posts for a while. I repurchased the same brow gel last week with 2 other products as Rimmel were offering 3 for 2 and if you bought 3 Rimmel products you got a free Kate Moss nail polish which is gorgeous. Today's post is about these products as they all relate to brows and I have been getting really into brows lately because I never used to bother with them but how your eyebrows look can change everything, hate to sound that dramatic but its true!

Firstly I bought the Rimmel Brow This Way Styling Gel in clear and this has become such an essential in my everyday make-up routine, I honestly don't know how I lived without it. My eyebrows can get a bit crazy when I haven't had them waxed in a while and this gel is such a saviour for around them times. I just had my eyebrows done about 3 days ago and they are quite thin but this gel is still essential because it just keeps them in place and it weirdly smells amazing, plus its only £3.99 which is a bargain. Down side is its quite small and it gets dirty quite quick.

Next up is the Rimmel Professional Eyebrow Pencil in dark brown. This is also a repurchase as I first bought this is May as mentioned in this haul. The pencil has not ran out but the brush is ruined completely and I needed a new pencil as I had previously bought the wrong shade but you can pass it off if you blended it with some eyeshadow. This pencil is the only eyebrow pencil I have ever used and I love it! It works perfectly for me so I don't feel the need to buy any other eyebrow pencils because this one is affordable and does the job really well.

Lastly is the Rimmel Brow This Way Eyebrow Kit. I am super excited to have this because I have just been filling my eyebrows in with a pencil and some eyeshadow (and doing a terrible job may I add) but this kit comes with proper brow tools to define your brows and make them look smooth. I love this so much, it fills my eyebrows in gorgeously and doing that it really defines my whole face which is a bonus. I am so happy I got this because my brows look better than ever with them.

That concludes my post on brows! What eyebrow products are your favourites? I still need to try the Benefit Gimmebrow but not sure if its worth the money.

Favourite Looks from VSFS 2014

Aloha, a fashion post here today as I haven't done one in ages! As you probably know the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show was filmed last week and aired yesterday and I saw the photos online and as per usual they were drop dead gorgeous. I have seen every VSFS and every year I obsess over the models, sorry the ANGELS and the outfits are insanely beautiful. I was particularly excited this year as Ariana Grande and Taylor Swift were performing, two of my favourite singers and they looked flawless. Not to mention Taylor also performed last year so she is killing it! Here are my favourite looks from the magical night, enjoy 

How amazing are these ladies? I need to go the gym right now! What looks were your favourite?

Rimmel // Extra Super Lash Mascara

I absolutely love mascara, it was the first make-up I ever used. After using so many different mascaras I realized I have never actually wrote a post on one so I thought it needed to be done. Currently I own 3 mascaras and the one featured on my blog today is the Rimmel Extra Super Lash Mascara.

I picked this up because I needed a new mascara as I had had mine for about 6 months and it was getting all disgusting, I saw this mascara for £4.99 so I thought I would give it ago. This mascara is amazing for its price and it does the job, it extends my lashes as you can see. What I hate about this mascara is how it can come out quite thick leaving some lashes with a load of mascara on and others without. It doesn't always separate your lashes that well but I find that with most mascaras.

I would definitely re-purchase this mascara because its handy to have in your bag or take on holiday with you because it makes your lashes look natural yet beautiful. Not to mention its super affordable and does the job! I am currently wanting a Lancome mascara, hoping to pick it up in the January sales! What mascara do you guys use?

Tea Tree Face Wash // Lemon & Pink Grapefruit

As I have mentioned on this blog I pretty much only use tea tree face wash because it does my skin the world of good but I hate the scent of tea tree. I used The Body Shop tea tree face wash for a few months but I wanted a change and I knew Superdrug did these scented tea tree face washes that are so much nicer than The Body Shop one.

I went in and they were buy one get one free which was such a steal. I like that they opted for citrus fruits with these face washes because that is the wake up you need in the morning, I'm not the biggest fan of pink grapefruit scents but this face wash isn't that strong and its good for your skin so I'm not complaining! However, I do love lemon. Lemon scented anything, I guarantee I will love so I obviously had to pick up this lemon facewash and lemon is also good for your skin so its a win-win situation.

These foam up quite alot compared to The Body Shop one which is the downside of these because its so annoying and it goes in your eyes which is not enjoyable. I will probably be repurchasing The Body Shop tea tree face wash when these are gone because although the scent is 10x better, The Body Shop one lasts a hell of alot longer and is probably more beneficial to your skin which is the priority. What tea tree face washes would you recommend?

Bourjois // 3D Effet Lip Gloss

Yes I've bought more lip products but I couldn't resist these gems. Bourjois are a brand I love and I hadn't tried anything from them until a few months ago and I have been impressed with every product I've tried. I picked up these 3D effet lip glosses last month and I realise they have been around for a while, they are not a new thing but I only just discovered them and I'm in love.

Firstly I got the Les Cocktails/Cassis Tropical one from poundland, YES POUNDLAND. A massive steal considering they sell the exact same lip gloss in Superdrug for about £6.99. I got it because it was £1 basically and I didn't expect much but its one of my favourite lip glosses, the application is so easy. The next one I got, I have no idea what its actually called but its from the nude collection I think. I got it from eBay for about £3 which, again, is such a steal. These lipglosses are amazing and I need to pick up more they last a long time, the application is easy.

Pick them up here in Boots. I am so impressed with these and I need to explore Bourjois more, I will be visiting the Bourjois counter in the January sales! What Bourjois products do you recommend?
