Outfit of the Day (#OOTD)

Ciao I'm back today with my first #OOTD post of 2015. Whoop! There's going to be many stylish and fashionable times ahead :) 

I wore this outfit a few days ago when I went for a bite to eat and a spot of shopping at Westfield. The weather was absolutely miserable that day, as can be expected at this time of year. As we were indoors I opted for my faux leather jacket and an oversized fur gilet. Unfortunately, the latter was a spur of the coldness kind of moment and so was not photographed. I decided to pair this greyish-black outfit with my favourite orange bag and a pair of white converse trainers. Both helped to inject some much needed colour and brightness to my muted outfit and really helped to add that casual shopping vibe. What do you guys think of my outfit?

 

Ripped Jeans from Topshop
Funnel Neck Top from Topshop
Faux Leather Jacket from Primark
Trainers from Converse
Bag from Zara
Earrings from H&M 
Necklaces from Urban Outfitters

I hope you guys have a lovely weekend. I'm sure that many of you are beginning a long and enjoyable night ahead, what with it being Friday and all. I have no doubt that it'll be filled with cocktails, twirls and lots of make-up touch ups. If your night involves none of that and is more along the lines of a fresh pair of pjs, your laptop and a hot cuppa... join the club :P

Ciao ♥ Xx

Rodial's Sculpting Bar and Make-Up Range

Ciao Despite us being almost one week into January let me begin this post by wishing you all a Happy New Year. I hope you enjoyed celebrating the last few hours of 2014 being surrounded by those people you love as I honestly can't think of a better way to welcome the New Year.

I'm very excited for what this year may bring both blogging and YouTube wise as I've got lots of ideas that I'll be implementing over the next few months. Whoop! Exciting times :) Now onto today's post...

At the beginning of last month I was kindly invited to the launch of Rodial's sculpting bar at Harvey Nichols in Knightsbridge. The event was launched by Daisy Lowe who is the face and ambassador of Rodial's new make-up range. It was also attended by the Founder/CEO Maria Hatzistefanis who I had the privilege of interviewing. I also managed to unknowingly photobomb one of her photos. Check me out in the background admiring her amazing make-up collection. Ha! Not your typical week day, ey? :P
I was first introduced to the brand about a year ago when one of my work colleagues suggested I give the Dragon's Blood Eye Gel a try after I was telling her about my dark undereye circles. Ever since doing so I've been a massive fan and probably even more so (if that's possible) after incorporating some of their make-up products into my everyday make-up routine. All of which I will come to in a little bit.

The Rodial sculpting bar is the first of its kind within the UK and offers customers a selection of bespoke services including Paparazzi Day Sculpt, The Model Brow, Malibu Bronze Look and LA Strong Lip. I was offered a complimentary treatment of my choice so opted for The Model Brow. You can see the final result in the picture posted below. Don't they look oh so defined?


All of the make-up products used for these treatments have been specifically designed to sculpt and define the face. In other words, you're one brush stroke away from having Kim Kardashian's razor-sharp cheekbones. Yes, really!


I was kindly gifted the Instaglam Compact Deluxe Illuminating Powder, Instaglam Compact Deluxe Contouring Powder, The Powder Brush and The Highlight Brush. One of the great things about these products, such as the first two mentioned, is that they are of a universal shade meaning they're suitable for all skin tones. The second thing that I am absolutely loving about this make-up range is the packaging. Isn't it gorgeous? As you can probably tell I'm a real sucker for packaging. I think it helps to add character to a product and I'm that whole bunch more likely to purchase something if I'm attracted to the exterior of it. As you can see both of the compacts look elegant and sleek.

I will be posting a make-up look within the next two weeks featuring all four of these amazing products so make sure you keep an eye out for that :)

 
 
What are you thoughts on the Rodial sculpting bar? Have any of you guys tried any Rodial products and if so, which ones?

Ciao ♥ Xx
