Halloween Inspo

Wednesday, 29 October 2014



I've never personally been one for going trick or treating (as my parents were both against it when I was a child) but I love the whole concept of dressing up and having an legitimate excuse to generate multiple costume/make-up ideas.
 If you go back through to my old old old videos on my Youtube channel... my skills have improved dramatically since then and so has my filming/editing equipment so as you can imagine I was so excited to create these looks!
 I'm not going to lie, obviously this week collection of halloween videos was a lot of fun, it was also a lot of work - late nights, messy bedroom and fitting the filming in around work and attempting to have a social life... hehe - but let's move all that to the side shall we and get through the 7 halloween looks that I created!

You can see the videos here! 


Which look is your favourite?









The Bold Lip & The Effortlessly Cool OOTD

Tuesday, 28 October 2014




If you haven't been living in a bubble from the blogging world you would of heard of a fantastic website called 'thebloggerprogramme' which is a great way for bloggers and brands to join forces, which I just think is fantastic. You should really go and check it out!

Any who....

I'm always one of those girlies that although I do love to feel all glam in dresses and high heels, i'm always looking for pieces that not only are nice looking but super comfy too! So when myself and the lovely Sara (marketing from MissRebel) discussed working together, I was delighted to find stylish/affordable and bang-on-trend pieces on their site. I originally picked out this cardigan and a beautiful bright yellow dress - however; I wanted my blog post to be something a little more weather appropriate and two pieces that I could style together.

The cardigan that I picked out is the 'maxi cardigan in slate grey' and is super soft but light so it would be perfect for a layering piece when the weather gets colder (which I'm sure it will do pronto!).


The top that I picked out instead of the dress is perfect! It's a really nice length as it's slightly long so you could either wear it long over leggings, tuck it into a skirt or even just tie up one corner. Statement t-shirts are always something that should be in a lot of wardrobes, as it's easy to make a quick 'i want to look fashionable but i totally can't be bothered' kind of outfit! ;)

Top - Miss Rebel
Cardigan - Miss Rebel
Jeans - Topshop
Pumps - Primark
Lipstick - MAC 'Rebel'

I genuinely love these pieces from MissRebel and shall be sporting them a lot this season, really good quality too!

MissRebel kindly gave me a 10% off code for my readers which was so lovely of them!
You can get 10% off Miss Rebel with the code: SHIVON10



What pieces do you have in your wardrobe that are 'effortlessly cool'?
I'd love to know!

Lots of love,


Majorca Getaway OOTD

Monday, 20 October 2014

I was in major need of a quick getaway following a very busy, hard working couple of months and what a perfect way to surprise my boyfriend with a trip to Majorca for five days for a little break!
We stayed in a little hotel in S'illot which was 5 minutes walk from the beautiful white sand beach! I've never actually been on a proper beachy type of holiday before so this was something I was really looking forward to! 

It was such an amazing getaway for the both of us and was so romantic, I definitely recommend booking a quick getaway if you're in a couple! I was enjoying myself so much that I only brought out my camera once! However I managed to get a few snaps as well as Ryan on his go pro.







Playsuit - The End Sandals - Primark Necklace - Local Majorcan Shop




I didn't wear any make-up for the entire holiday apart from one day and my skin cleared up so much! The locals are so lovely and hilarious! The drinks though - the exotic looking drink in this photo isn't even a cocktail it's just a strawberry and apple smoothie! It came with gallons of fruit around the edges... mmm!


I had such an amazing time in Majorca, have you ever been? Link me to posts! I would love to reminisce!
