Red lipstick can sometimes be scary to wear out on a daily basis as it feels very flamboyant and dressy but I’m a strong believer that it can be worn in a casual way. Red lipstick will always look pretty and classy and as we begin to transition into autumn, where darker lips are all the rage, a red lipstick is a good thing to include in your daily makeup routine.
For me, my favourite red lipstick is Bourjois Rouge Edition Lipstick in shade 13. It has a blue undertone which suits my complexion, compared to lots of other red lipsticks which have a more orange tone. It also goes on incredibly smoothly and stays put all day. I love it!
This post is not sponsored by Bourjois I honestly just love this shade and I think you will too.
You can buy your own lipstick here.
Sorry this post seems a bit rushed, I’m going on holiday later this week and I’ve been very busy so this had to be written very quickly. My longer, more extensive posts will be back to normal tomorrow!

Outfit Inspired By Freddy
The Chanel Shoes That Broke The Internet
Freddy is one of my biggest style icons and so I thought I’d wrap up my collection of posts based on her as my style inspiration with an outfit inspired by her pretty, girly style. I headed down to London, where Freddy takes most of her blog photos, to really get the Freddy vibe going and trotted round the capital in this beautiful outfit, which was pink and white of course.
For us Brits the summer holidays are about half way through and elsewhere in the world people have been off school for weeks. Weeks off school sound great (just think of all the lie ins) but all that free time can get boring. It is getting to that point in the holiday where it can be hard to think of things to do to fill up all the time so I thought I’d suggest a few free or very cheap ideas.
Have a picnic
Having a picnic is a cute, cheap idea. Arrange to meet up with friends and tell everyone to bring one piece of food each – soon enough you’ll have a whole picnic spread for next to nothing!
Go for a walk
Going for a walk is a great way to explore your local area as well as being a fab way to get exercise. I personally love going walking in my local park as I’m a fan of walking in nature but you could also go for a walk in a more urban place; go and explore your city!
Go to the cinema
Going to the cinema has been a classic meet up idea for decades and nothing can compare to watching a film with your friends on the big screen. Cinema tickets, if you get offers, can be cheap or alternatively you could set up your own ‘cinema’ at home. Choose a movie, invite your friends round, buy a couple of bags of popcorn and you’re sorted!
Visit another town
There’s often hidden gems mere miles from where we live which we spend our lives unaware of. Research into beautiful places in and around your local towns and cities – you’ll be surprised by what you find; there’s a treasure trove of beautiful places to discover out there.
What’s your favourite thing to do in the summer? Tell me in the comments below!

Why It’s Important To Treat Yourself
The Importance Of Mindfulness
I admit that I haven’t perfected the art of taking a flatlay, like a lot of things to do with blogging and the photography that comes with it, I’m still learning. However I have collected together a few tips and tricks to boost up your flatlay game and show off your products in the best way possible.
It’s no secret that I’m a terrible cook – I can hardly make toast and I once burnt chocolate whilst trying to melt it. However, I’m determined to learn and I thought I’d take you guys along on the journey. I’m starting a new section on my blog called ‘Cooking With Chloe’ where I will show you my culinary creations (oh lord, honestly this could turn out a disaster). I thought I’d start out with something I know I’m pretty good at – decorating cakes (although I’m using packet cake mixture because I’m not that good yet…plus it’s very yummy!). For a tea party cute little cakes are a must and these adorable tea cup(cakes) and flower pot fairy cakes are perfect, read on for instructions on how to make them.
I did my last ‘what’s trending right now’ post on the colour yellow but there’s another colour which is equally as in style – red. Classic, pretty and awfully sexy, red never truly goes out of style. I’ve collected my favourite red pieces I’ve seen online and in store and there is also a new addition to my posts – different pieces I’d style them up with. Click on the links to shop!
Up until earlier this year I wasn’t dressing in a way that presented me, my new outlook or my style at all. I have always been interested in fashion but I let the opinions of others affect my style choices instead of going with what I wanted to wear. So, today I’m going to walk you through why I think it’s important to find your signature style. Continue reading
