abit of fun . . . elle colour test


OMG I just took this test on www.elle.com
where you have to answer questions on your personality
I thought lets see what weird and wacky info it comes out with I could do with a laugh if you know what I mean.
but the results were surprisingly accurate
the picture above is my result
the description is spot on as you will have seen on previous blog posts
and also the pictures are spot on too
Foundation is my most important makeup item, I do like rings, with precious gem stones.
Although my gold hoop earring are my signature jewellery item!
I actually own a black dress with white polka dots and i also have a pair of louboutins
and I love scarfs, dupattas and pashminas!

Royal wedding inspired patriotic nails, my thoughts fotd and info



Ok so like the millions of people world wide, I too watched the royal wedding of Prince williams and Katherine Middleton.
What an Amazing Cinderella story!!
A poor/common girl meets and falls in love with a prince and they have a grand wedding for the land     (. . . and world to see)
and live happily ever after 

My expectations of the wedding was for it to be very british and very classic and ofcourse high end the best of everything or rather the best of british!
I expected to see Kate middleton in a very classic and elegant wedding gown and I was not wrong or dissappointed at all.
Her jewellery was very classic and elegant perfect for her complete outfit
The perfume used by kate middleton as well as the prince williams was also not just standard
both wore fragrances that were custom made to suit their individualities and to complement each others fragrances so as not to clash each other but to make a complete fragrance when the two were put together. 
Kates fragrance is said to be classic whilst prince williams fragrance is more sporty and masculine.
The bottles again are very classic and made to compliment each other, kates fragrance is in a white bottle whilst willians fragrance is in a black bottle.
The perfume was created by the perfumer that has been used before by the royal family.
If you are feeling let down at not being able to duplicate her perfume do not worry 
the fragrances are rumoured to hit the high street soon -so watch this space 
She looked amazing and classic
its nice that even the day before the wedding she went to pick up her own laundry and has been spotted out driving herself.
It is said that she has done her own makeup herself 
(since I did the same for myself I really cannot hold this against her)
its such an important day its sometimes better to be safe than sorry
and go for a tried and tested look
and was also rumoured to have been shopping at the lancome counter and picked up three items 
-hydra zen moisturiser, hypnose mascara, artliner liquid liner.
I have to add that these are three things that I do use which you can find by typing in the names and search previous face of the days and hauls.
