The Style Icons – Mary-Kate Olsen & Ashley Olsen

I just took a ‘Who Is Your Style Icon’ test on Buzzfeed and my result was a SOLANGE. Now why am I not surprised with the result at all.

Who Is Your Style Icon?

  1. You got: Solange

    You’ve got amazing boho-chic style, and work bright colors and bold patterns and prints like no other.

Now I am not sure about the working of bold patterns and prints bit, I usually shy away from prints as much as I can but I love Solange’s style so I guess there is a bit of her in me. She is a Style Icon and a Beauty Muse.

Now to the style icons of the week, say hello to the stylish Olsen Twins – Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen.

The multi-millionaire Olsen twins need no introduction. They have taken the fashion industry by storm and they are not stopping anytime soon. I have been a fan of their style for as long as I can remember and they always step up their game every time they step out. These women are trend setters in the fashion industry and I am interested in every accessory and piece I see on them.

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen refuse to be defined by fashion or style rules; they break fashion rules quite regularly but it works for them. They make fashions donts doable if that makes sense. Their signature styles amaze me.

The Olsen twins are regularly spotted wearing neutral pieces and little or no makeup. Their signature style is boho-chic, minimalistic, and always fearless. They take fashion risks on and off the red carpet, they know what pieces and colours suit them best and they stick to them religiously.

Product Review: Geluxury Moisture Replenishing Leopard Slippers

IMG_3057

I was recently sent this Geluxury Moisture Replenishing Leopard Slippers by Simply Feet some weeks ago to review. My feet is usually OK, I don’t suffer much from cracked heels or damaged cuticles but I couldn’t turn down a golden opportunity to pamper my feet. I love pampering myself at home, so I am usually on the lookout for products I could use at home by myself.

Here is what Geluxury has to say about this moisturising slippers:

Our dematologist-tested slippers feature our patent-pending SmartGel lining, which is scientifically formulated to transform dry, damaged skin. The deep-hydrating gel lining delivers therapeutic botanicals and oils that heal, intense hydrators that nourish, and ceramides that seal and protect. With regular use, you will restore, repair and rejuvenate your cracked heels, calluses, and damaged cuticles.

How To Use

  • The Slippers work best when used regularly (20-30 minutes at least 2x per week).
  • Daily use is recommended for optimal results.
  • The Slippers should be worn for light, indoor use only.
  • Slip them on while relaxing at home, doing light housework, or just sitting at your desk.

Here are my thoughts on this product:

PROS

  1. No mess or preparation required. All I needed to do was to put it on. I applied a mosituriser on my feet after having a shower, before wearing it for a more intensive treatment.
  2. This slippers made my feet smooth and soft in a couple of days so it works!
  3. After wearing it for about 15 minutes, it starts to feel nice and warm, I could feel the moisturisers and oils release and start to work.
  4. I love the leopard print design, so chic. It also comes in a ‘cuddle cow’ print design

CONS

  1. It felt kind of weird the first time I wore it. It wasn’t what I was expecting. I expected a regular indoor, comfortable slippers but this feels nothing like that. It has a gel like lining that feels like rubber when worn initially. I guess it has to feel like this to do the job.
  2. I choose a medium size as I am a UK 6 and the medium size is meant for UK 5-6.5 but this was a little small for me, only if that is how it is meant to be in order to do the job?

Overall, I recommend the Geluxury Moisture Replenishing Slippers, it does all it claims to do in a matter of days. It will repair, replenish and restore your feet, leaving it feeling and looking smooth and soft.

The Geluxury Moisture Replenishing Leopard Slippers costs £30 and you can grab it on the Simply Feet website (link in the first paragraph). So what do you think of this product? Have you tried it?

OOTD: Goodbye Summer

IMG_3142

Summer is over, and the layering season is now upon us. I love Autumn and Winter fashion trends because I get to show off my layering styling skills. It is super easy to look stylish this season, a lot easier than in the summer. Just throw on a scarf, beanie hat, a blazer or a cardigan to step up your style game and you are good to go. It is all in the layers girls, remember that.

This outfit post features some new wardrobe additions; gifts from family and some items from my recent shopping spree. Let’s just say I have been very busy.

IMG_3152

This Molly Jeggings is one of my favourite pieces in my wardrobe at the moment. It is a perfect fit and it looks amazing. I got another in blue and I can’t wait to start rocking it. I am a sucker for a good pair of jeans, you can never commit a fashion crime wearing the right pair of jeans.

Shopping aside, I am looking forward to the bank holiday break tomorrow. Last week was quite busy for me, blog and family wise so I am looking forward to spending the bank holiday relaxing with family and friends, which is what we do best together. However, I will probably still reply emails and blog at some point during the day, I am addicted to Fashion and Style Police, I can’t help myself.

5 Great Unisex Accessories

Unisex Clothing

I am not what you’d call an androgynous-looking woman, quite the opposite in fact; for the good or the bad, I can be described as having a highly feminine appearance. However, every now and then, I really like adding one masculine-looking item of clothing or accessory to my outfit, because I love the air of rebelliousness it can add to my overall look. Items and accessories which are mostly intended and designed for men but which can be worn by women too are some of the most valuable additions to a wardrobe, especially if you’re actually a couple of sharing one. Sometimes, I find myself raiding DH’s wardrobe to see what I could add to my look to make it different.

Therefore, this is my favorite list of such men’s items which can be used as unisex accessories for a great effect. If you don’t particularly fancy wearing one of them too often, you can just gift them to your boyfriend and then borrow the item from them, when you think it would work with your outfit. Also, keep in mind that you get extra points when you use such an accessory in an unconventional way (such as a neck tie worn as a belt, for example). I for one love such combinations (and am a fan of all new things happening in unisex fashion in general).

1. A leather messenger bag for men

Whenever you dress up casually, but still pretty feminine (or not), one of the easiest ways to take your outfit out of the ‘basic’ zone is to add a men’s leather messenger bag to it. It will be double the fun since it’s functional as well – who doesn’t need to carry their laptop or tablet around these days (and often much more than gadgets)? Choose a high quality one, preferably with vintage and classy tones. I like this classic vintage leather briefcase the most.

2. A black tie

As I said earlier, a man’s tie can become quite a versatile accessory: you can either wear it as a belt, simply tied around your waist, or wear it as a tie (but loose) over an otherwise causal outfit and so on. There’s no limit, so feel free to experiment, but I’d suggest sticking to a black one (over lighter-colored clothes).

3. A men’s fedora hat

Yes, there are plenty of fedora hats out there for women as well, but if you actually go all the way and wear a more manly looking one, the air of carelessness and rebelliousness that you’ll be adding to your outfit will be all the more intense. Choose one colored in dark tones, like sandalwood or black. Be careful though not to pick one too large, for best results, the hat has to be a perfect fit.

4. A heavy belt buckle

Another classic and vintage men’s accessory which can be easily used as a modern unisex one is the belt buckle. Choose one with a cute or historical carving and a silver finish. The major retail hubs like eBay, Amazon and Etsy are full of vintage buckles to choose from.

5. A men’s watch

Last, but not least, never underestimate the ruggedness and rebel feel of wearing an oversized men’s watch. It’s the stuff dreams are made of when trying to achieve this look of just of a few unisex touches, and it makes your hands and body more delicate by contrast with the watch’s size.

 

Beauty Muse – Solange

The stylish Solange is not only a Style Icon, she is also a Beauty Muse. This woman is always steps ahead of any fashion or beauty trend. She is a force to reckon with in the fashion and beauty industry. She is a trendsetter and my Muse.

tumblr_mfx1iwfkPU1rps7q5o1_400

I love the fact that Solange is so confident, confident enough to play with her looks and she nails every look. She inspires me to step outside my comfort zone and try various beauty products and looks. She is the coolest kid on the block.

I love the fact that she does not have the regular next door beauty, she dared to be different and she stands out from the rest. She has the most beautiful, and natural hair I have ever seen and she knows it. Solange is a breath of fresh air.

Here is what she told Elle about skin and hair care routine:

“I use a really great line; it’s called Epicuren. I had breakouts and I did everything you could think of and then I just stopped doing everything and then my skin just started getting better and better. So, I do that, and I’m really adamant about my sleep that’s the one thing, if you ask anyone who knows me I’m like I must have 10 hours of sleep.

Lately I’ve been really relying on coconut oil. I actually just go to the grocery store and buy organic coconut oil and put it on before, during, and after I shampoo. I let it air dry. Sometimes I blow it out with low heat. Sometimes I’ll twist it and take out the twists the next day.”

Coconut Oil is apparently the holy grail of beauty and hair so I am looking forward to trying out a sample I have recently received. Maybe I can get my hair to grow as long and shine like Solange’s.

What do you think of Solange as a Beauty Muse?
