Russian Red lipstick from MAC is an absolute favourite of mine, albeit a recent rediscovered love of late when rummaging about for a red lipstick to wear in my latest outfit post. I would say it is the perfect ‘classic’ red lipstick, with a matte finish and amazing staying power! I would definitely recommend applying this one with a lip brush and double check those teeth for that lipstick mark faux pas. I certainly feel foul to this!

My earrings are from Gogo Philip – gorgeous and gold with intricate etching and little baubles that tinkle when you walk! I hadn’t really been that aware of Gogo Philip before I was sent these, but I actually really like the look of some of their pieces. They have a store at Westfield Stratford as well as a concessions in Topshop and an online selection with ASOS.

Today I went to see my ever-patient hairdresser to discuss going blonder! I vowed I would never go blonde again, especially in the midst of my red spell when I thought a fiery mane was the only way to go. But I had a change of heart and now have my sights on keeping the golden base but adding some soft blonde highlights. I am thinking a warm, creamy blonde so it isn’t too harsh and blends in nicely. My bouffant is being bleached next Friday and undoubtedly I will share my latest transformation with you all.

I am attending the Motel Rocks-slash-Glossybox event tomorrow evening which seems like quite the extravaganza of the moment! I am really looking forward to seeing everyone that is going. If you are attending, do let me know so I can say hi 🙂
