Trending: The Bomber

This season is definitely bomber season. Editors continue to love the trend. If you don’t own a bomber yet…you need to buy one. If you already have one…you need to buy another one! This trend is here to stay.

Bombers are the ultimate style saviour! They are great for this transitional weather too. Throw on with Skinnies for relaxed weekend chic or team with a body con dress to add some sass to your outfit.

With the addition of a bomber, your outfit will elevate to that of being aspirational! #Goals

Silk bombers are by far my favourite bomber trend, it mixes both boudoir and baseball all in one. If you are going to opt for a silk bomber, a dusky pink one is definitely the way to go. This bomber is the perfect shade and would work well with white skinnies, nude heels and nude coloured lips.

Embroidered bombers infuse oriental intricacy.  Designers such as Gucci and Saint Laurent embraced the Japanese inspired theme. This pattern works with almost anything. The detailing of this bomber works especially well with a white Tee and blue skinnies for a relaxed luxe vibe.

The classic bomber is a wardrobe stable. This addition will make off duty dressing a breeze! A contemporary streetwear classic that celebrities such as GiGi Hadid continue to model.

With the ultimate bomber list compiled you have no excuse but to embrace the trend. How do you style the bomber? Which style is your favourite?

Desk To Dinner

Make your transition from desk to dinner effortlessly sublime. Whether its cocktails with the girls or a dinner date, I have compiled a look which I believe is extremely versatile! Taking you from your 9-5, into the late evening.

Just Swap Your Accessories

Accessories are heaven sent! A killer pair of heels, a gorgeous clutch and some statement jewellery are all things that you can keep in your drawer. A strong dark lip will have you ooze into the starry night. I have so many gorgeous heels but I always reach for these white heels from Zara. Its all in the details, the chrome finish on the tip of the heel allows me to incorporate my chrome jewellery. My clutch is from French Connection and is the perfect size for my phone, my purse and my lipstick of course! The white and red mesh clutch actually inspired me to create this entire outfit.

White On White

The stunning recent weather has given me the perfect opportunity to showcase white on white. White is such a simple, subtle yet powerful colour and works so harmoniously with a range of colours and tones. My white jeans are from Zara and my white blazer is from Mango. I always find white on white exudes classiness. Be it cocktails or a date, you can rest assured white will have you looking confident and classy!

Bold Colours

Keeping a bold colour central to the outfit allows you to mix and match your attire. My top is from Zara and again the neck detailing is what drew me to buy it!  A central bold colour can help you to bring in accessories that will complement the colour too. Elegant cuts and formal finishings will mean that struggling to find an outfit to wear to work and dinner will no longer be the case.

So ladies, its time to say YES to cocktails with the girls and YES to a date with your latest tinder match! Put those drawers under your desk to good use and stack them with ready to wear accessories.

Thanks for reading.

Kylie Jenner $tyle $teals

Kylie Jenner has effortlessly cool style. Inspired by her style and dominant 2016 trends, I have found some dupes in order to recreate her edgy look from www.misstempted.co.uk.

Screen Shot 2016-03-09 at 14.02.50

Kylie is a huge fan of the colour Khaki and boy does she love a bomber jacket. This dupe bomber jacket is almost identical and even has the coral lining! Kylie tends to throw this jacket with a multitude of looks – from a tight bodycon dress and boots, to a more relaxed ripped jeans and heels vibe. That is why it is so versatile because the colour Khaki goes with everything. The bomber jacket has been a 2016 trend, for that on-the-go military/off duty look. A definite must have because of its versatility and a style steal!

IMG_5128

Ripped skinny jeans are an essential, for a Kylie Jenner look – she incorporates them into the majority of her looks. These jeans are an amazing fit and If you are a fan of super super skinny jeans – these are a must have. Black ripped jeans incorporate well with that ‘off duty’ day look but can also be teamed with a glam top to take you into an evening vibe.

The lace up front top is an additional dominant 2016 trend and one of my favourites! The stitched up look was among countless catwalks in Spring 2015 including Gucci, Louis Vuitton and Givenchy. Kylie wears the lace up trend in both tops and dresses and this dupe will be sure to give you her style (at at a steal).

This jewellery is the cherry on top to finish off your look. I cannot express how obsessed I am with this ring and bangle. Step into the wild with this incrusted tiger ring, it oozes ferocity. The ring is also adjustable to fit even the smallest fingers.

Valentines Inspired Beauty

Don’t wait to be treated, treat yourself this Valentines Day with some beauty must haves. Sticking with the romantic theme, these beauty products are definitely ones to add to your collection.

Firstly, the NYX soft matte lip creams are essential to your make up bag. The shades (left to right) are: Tokyo, San Paulo and Beunos Aires. San Paulo is absolutely my favourite and these lip creams last really well. Simply apply clear gloss or vaseline if you aren’t a fan of the matte lip. These shades are also great to mix for a subtle obré look.

The eyeshadow quad is by Kleancolor. I first came across the brand whilst in Barbados, a few girls there recommended it to me and I totally understand why they are hooked. The shadows are so pigmented! Dont be afraid to blend some shades of pink into your eyeshadow, when blended it can look really pretty.

This perfume is by Kim Kardashian, its called Glam (partly why I love it) and is a perfect blend of musk and florals so fits the romantic inspired beauty theme well.

My ring is by Pandora and I am O B S E S S ED with it. It is so dainty and subtle yet really catches the light. Its a heart shape so its super cute.

My make up bag is by Ted Baker and is the perfect size for on the go. Its a lovely dusky pink with a rose gold zip so I love the combo.

Thank you for reading and remember to treat yourself! Go on, you deserve it!

Live On Air Talking Annieshahblog

Last weekend I had the most incredible opportunity being live on air talking all things annieshahblog! I had so much fun with the fantastic radio presenter Stephen Whitton.

Being live on air was certainly an experience, the studio had to be completely silent as the mic’s pick up on every little sound. Hearing my voice during the mic testing was soo weird. I thought “gosh is that what I sound like”! It definitely took some time getting used to!

I have to admit, at the very beginning I was so nervous! Being live I had to ensure I made zero mistakes. The first 10 minutes of the hour slot I was conscious of what I was saying but as the radio show went on, my nerves completed eased and I cannot express how much fun I had!

For those of you that didn’t get a chance to listen live, the link below will take you directly to the podcast. If you are having difficulties reaching the radio podcast – copy and paste the link into your browser. Simply click play! I hope you enjoy listening to me as well as Beyonce, among others.

Minimalistic Chic In Marrakech

I adore the all white look; the simplicity of chiffon and the excess of draping material gave this look, a very elegant feel. Inspired by Victoria Beckham and her minimalistic chic style, I teamed this long line white chiffon dress with white heels. Both are from Zara and worked effortlessly well together. The gold on the heel worked well with my simple gold jewellery. My bracelets are from Next and my necklace is from Miss Selfridge.IMG_4249During my time in Marrakech I wanted a look, which would not only compliment the heat but also, incorporate some of the traditional look of Moroccan gold jewellery – this look did both!IMG_4224This dress could easily be teamed with skinny white jeans to continue the theme or black skinnies perhaps for the evening. I wore a simple black bodycon dress underneath but this white dress worked efficiently as a bikini cover up by the pool too! There are endless ways to wear this dress and that is why I love ZARA!IMG_4312The only advice I would give to anyone braving an all white look – stay clear of coloured drinks- that will be a tall skinny glass of iced water for me please!

Thank you for reading – have a great day!

The Kylie Jenner Lip Combo

If you haven’t heard about Kylie Jenner’s lips, well… where have you been? Her lips have been the talk of the nation ever since the Kardashian half sister, had her lips plumped.

Screen Shot 2015-12-12 at 19.41.26

Despite the stir, her lips always look amazing and she recently launched her Kylie Lip Kit. In honour of her launch, I was inspired to recreate her lip look and believe I have found the products that can do exactly that!

Large, plump lips ensure your pout is ‘selfie ready’. If you would like your lips to look bigger, you can over-line them very slightly to give your lips a fuller look. Additionally, you can ombré your lips, which give them a more plumped look. To ombré your lips, means to use a lighter colour in the centre of both lips, with a darker shade on the outer corners and blend the two together. The key to this being successful is to find shades that are almost identical but just a shade or two lighter/darker.

IMG_4122.JPG

The lipsticks that will have even Kylie Jenner jealous of your pout are by Helen E Cosmetics. I loved the shades ‘Raspberry’ and ‘Dusk.’ The Kiko ‘Automatic Precision’ lip liner in 508 works perfectly to give lips (the top lip especially) a defined look. This lip combo is everything! Give these products a try, to recreate that Jenner Pout, and be sure to take some selfies!
