Blake Lively Style

Blake Lively

 I am really enjoying Blake Lively's outfits at the moment. Chic and sophisticated but also
preppy. Blake lively is a style icon, she is amazing when it comes to fashion she always looks classy. I really like her old Hollywood look. Lively is known for not having a stylist which I think is really amazing. 
Today I would like to share some of my favourite outfits with you :)

Essie - Sand Tropez


                                         sand tropez - a soft sandy beige


Essie's Sand Tropez from the spring 2011 French Affair collection, is a beautiful very wearable shade of beige. The application takes concentration, it could be streaky if you aren't careful but even if you have an imperfect first coat the second coat can easily conceal it. I took this into consideration as I applied it and had an easy time overall with the application. Sand Tropez is a beautiful cool toned nude cream polish. One of Essie's best works in my opinion. Classiest shade of nail polish I own. I sometimes pair this up with an awesome gold glitter polish I have by OPI, and it really does give that posh, glamorous but neat Saint Tropez feel to it.
Just gorgeous!

Breathing meditation for stress relief

With its focus on full, cleansing breaths, deep breathing is a simple, yet powerful, relaxation technique. It’s easy to learn, can be practiced almost anywhere, and provides a quick way to get your stress levels in check. Deep breathing is the cornerstone of many other relaxation practices, too, and can be combined with other relaxing elements such as aromatherapy and music. All you really need is a few minutes and a place to stretch out.

The key to deep breathing is to breathe deeply from the abdomen, getting as much fresh air as possible in your lungs. When you take deep breaths from the abdomen, rather than shallow breaths from your upper chest, you inhale more oxygen. The more oxygen you get, the less tense, short of breath, and anxious you feel.
  1. Sit comfortably with your back straight. Put one hand on your chest and the other on your stomach.
  2. Breathe in through your nose. The hand on your stomach should rise. The hand on your chest should move very little.
  3. Exhale through your mouth, pushing out as much air as you can while contracting your abdominal muscles. The hand on your stomach should move in as you exhale, but your other hand should move very little.
  4. Continue to breathe in through your nose and out through your mouth. Try to inhale enough so that your lower abdomen rises and falls. Count slowly as you exhale.
If you find it difficult breathing from your abdomen while sitting up, try lying on the floor. Put a small book on your stomach, and try to breathe so that the book rises as you inhale and falls as you exhale. Continue the practice until you feel calm and relaxed.


Do you have a ritual that helps you to relax?

Mac - Chatterbox Lipstick



 Recently I added another Lipstick to my fast growing collection of lip products, and being a huge fan of Mac, I decided to splurge a little and bought Mac's Chatterbox. 'Chatterbox' has been on my forever growing wishlist, and when visiting my local Mac counter, I finally gave into temptation! I can't tell you how pleased I am that I did!

The only way I can think to describe this colour is as a very wearable hot pink, it's bright, but not too loud and in your face, very pretty! This is one of my favorite lipsticks from MAC as it's the perfect pink.
I think this colour would suit almost anybody, it goes with everything and I would buy it again and again! Sometimes I don't wear it to its full 'amplified' status, I apply it lightly and blend with my finger so it looks more like a glossy stain.

  Even if you don't have time to exfoliate your lips, this lipstick will still look great on your lips- with or without lipgloss. The formula is pigmented and super moustrizing! This does not highlight any dead skin on your lips and makes your lips look fantastic. The light vanilla scent is so nice (unless you don't like vanilla).
