1. Love, love loving the ever favoured Diptyque Baies candle in a gorgeous dark finish, this looks amazing burning next to one of their smaller classic white candles for a beautiful monochrome detail to finish off a room.

2. I’m becoming increasingly obsessed with the Lulu Guinness lips clutches, this black snakeskin version is a sophisticated version of the fun classic.

A pretty little dose of Thursday inspiration. Off for a meal with some ladies tonight, I’m feeling plenty of tanned Louboutin-ended leg and a punchy red lip.

Bright Eyes and Orange Pouts..

When it comes to beauty, its so often preached that bare is beautiful. Quite rightly so. But, every now and then so is a bit of colour on your face. Orange has become one of the biggest beauty trends we’ve seen this summer, appearing on the gorgeous and fashion conscious (myself included, of course..) has been sporting it everywhere from toenails and talons to the ends of your hair in a crazy dip-dye craze. You already know I love a good statement lip, to me its the easiest way to work a bright pop into your visage without having to do too much to the rest of it.

Cast your mind back to the SS13 shows last September in Milan, where Moschino models took to the runway breaking all of the beauty rules your Mum had taught you; there was long fluttery lashes, bright orange lips, statement brows and white liner lining each beautiful eye. I’ve been drawing inspiration when “doing” my own face, and when putting my say into styling a shoot or look.

Unfortunately, not many of us look like Cara Delevinge nor feature regularly in high-fashion campaigns where this kinda look is commonplace – even I admit the full on re-creation is a little much for a trip to ASDA but why not channel your inner Cara and go all out for a night of cocktails, there are so many orange tones out there that work for almost any skin tone and paired with a slick of white liner the look is young, fresh and polished.

Mad for Matte Lips..

Luckily for me, as a mad-about-matte-lips-lady, matte lipsticks in bright and punchy shades grazed SS13 catwalks everywhere from always OTT Prada to always understated Erdem.

Two of my favourite shades to create a summer-friendly pop of colour are from the genius that is Francois Nars in the form of the famous Semi Matte Lipstick; first up we have the perfect blue-toned pink Schiap and the orangey-red Heatwave which isn’t far from Mac’s Lady Danger but brighter in the orange department.

Draw your inspiration from the ever-gorgeous Miss Delevinge – keeping the visage naturally flawless and dewy, concentrate on simply contouring and highlighting your cheekbones, eyes and high points of your face for supermodel definition and of course – tidy up those brows but leave out any colour to allow the lips do the talking. Fresh yet dramatic perfection.

With a neat slick of lipliner and carefully applied matte pigment, these Nars lippies should see you through the hottest of summer nights.
