Dream Christmas Party Outfit

Christmas is fast approaching and the party season has truly begun! Dresses and accessories can be very expensive so I've put together my dream Christmas party outfit on my Polyvore (for if money was no object).

Christmas is all about golds and reds. I absolutely adore this gold dress from Oasis! Sleek, chic and totally stunning! You'd be drop dead gorgeous in it!

Dream Christmas Party Outfit

Oasis wrap dress
Charlotte Olympia red pumps
£575 -
IaM by Ileana Makri cuff bracelet
£580 -
Gucci gold bracelet
£640 -
Irene Neuwirth ring
£6,115 -
Lips makeup
Bobbi Brown Cosmetics eyeshadow brush
£46 -

You can completely the look with gold accessories with red accents, such as this exquisite ring!
For hair, have gorgeous, effortless chic, half up half down loose curls and for make-up, natural eyes with a bit of eye-liner or brown shades of eye-shadow. But accentuate with bright red lips for traffic stopping effect.

Liebster Award

Thanks to the wonderful Lula-Belle blog, I've been nominated for the Liebster Award! You can check out her lovely blog at:

The Liebster Award (meaning 'love' or 'favourite' in German) is an award targeting new blogs with small followings but huge potential and is awarded by other bloggers.

Here are my answers to her questions:
1) Lipstick or Lip gloss?
Definitely lipstick for me! I feel it always lasts longer. Also, where I live it's often windy and my hair's so long it's always blown into my face and gets stuck to my lips if I wear lip gloss! And it's not sticky for kissing ;)
I usually wear a peach gold colour for everyday looks and like deep pinks or reds for special occasions.

2) If you were stranded on an island and you were only allowed one beauty product, what would it be?
Definitely foundation! You can get away with a cute pony tail or bun for your inevitably messy hair but I feel much better knowing I have an even skin tone. Plus, mine from Max Factor has SPF in it so good protection for your skin.

3) What are your New Year resolutions? 
I know you hear it a lot but it is actually to go to the gym. I usually work out at home and go for runs but I think I'd get more done if I actually made time to go to the gym instead. Keep me more focused.

4) What is your dream job?
My dream job is modelling which I'm lucky enough to already do. That's just part time though while I study at University. Would you believe I'm actually a scientist?! I'm studying a BSc degree. My dream would be to get a doctorate and travel the world with that. 

5) A person who inspires you?
Definitely my Grandfather. He's a great inspiration for me. He's always instilled in me how vital education is and all my other life values. 

6) What is the first thing you would buy if money was no object? 
Good question...Probably tickets for a trip around the world with my boyfriend. What an experience?!

7) Favourite time of the year?
I'd have to say summer, because that means holidays and I love to travel.

8) Five words that best describe your personality?
Oh dear... um.. chic, sophisticated, conscientious, empathetic and athletic.

9) Where do you hope to be in 5 years time?
I hope I'll be working in Australia.

10) Your favourite place?
Probably Rome. It's definitely somewhere I'd love to keep going back to. So much culture, history, lovely people, gorgeous buildings...
I went there for the day whilst on holiday with my family when I was a child and then went there for a week this summer with my boyfriend and I still don't think that's enough for seeing everything. It's a must for everyone's bucket list!

11) Your most embarrassing moment? 
Oh too many to possibly say! Probably... the first time I brought my boyfriend home to introduce my family to him and my Granddad thinks it's a grand idea to show THE most embarrassing home videos. It's funny now but at the time I just wanted the ground to open up and swallow me whole! Haha!

Christmas Nail Art

Forget just painting your nails Christmas colours for your Christmas parties like burgundy, gold and blue. The fashion is definitely to give your nails a Christmas make-over!
Here are some of my favourite designs I put together on Polyvore:
Top Christmas Nail Designs

For cuteness I love the super adorable penguins but I think my ultimate favourite would have to be the red and gold one. Would love to be talented enough to do this! Think it's going to take a lot of practice though!

Thankfully nail art pens and kits are available to make it a LOT easier. You can get one yourself from places like Amazon:

 Or even some adorable transfers!

Have you tried any yet?
