The Week #70



The Week in Instagrams @nanawintour: *Pretty blossoms on a sunny Spring day. *A change of season calls for a new pinboard. *The current eye product rotation. *The fruity, fresh and floral Perfume Roster. *Weekend's off are the best. *Nouvelle Daily is a rather rad blog.

Must-Watch of the Week: I'm a fan of flawless makeup. The whole 'no makeup, makeup' look that actually takes a lot of time to get right? I'm all over that. It seems that Alix is also a fan of this minimalistic approach to beauty. She shared this video of a Drew Barrymore inspired look on her channel this week and I love it. If you've visited my Facebook page recently you'd know I am obsessed with glossy red lips at the moment. More on that below..

Product of the Week: After seeing some of the stunning looks Mac have been creating at Fashion Week the standout lip at Zambesi caught my eye. I recreated it yesterday using; Mac Redd Pencil, Mac Scarlet Ibis Lipstick (limited edition) and Hourglass Liquid Lipstick in Riviera. For the glossy finish I just used a little bit of a sheer pink Bobbi Brown lipgloss (also limited edition) but you can use whichever gloss you fancy.

Must-Read of the Week: Most of my reading this week has been of the local Fashion Week coverage. As I write this Day 3's shows haven't even started but my favourite collection so far has got to be the one presented by Twenty Seven Names. The collection was inspired by Surrealist Rene Magritte, hence the bowler hats. Each of the looks are classic, elegant and definitely have wearability factor. Check out Katherine's other nzfw posts as well. She does the best coverage of all the shows and backstage happenings.

Added to the Wishlist: Other than the satchel I take to and from Uni most days I don't really own any other handbags. That's not entirely true. I do have handbags but they're on the smaller, flimsier side and aren't ideal for long days. The Zara City bag seems to be the handbag of choice for the fashion and blogging sets alike. While it isn't the smallest of bags it is more practical and still manages to look chicer than the hobo style handbags that were trending not too long ago. I'm off to Melbourne in November and I'll definitely be heading to Zara to have a look at their bag selection. Check it out here.


*Have an amazing weekend everybody. I am next level tired so I don't have any major plans other than celebrating the fact that it's the holidays! xo
