Samantha Cameron is Chic

I'm going to take a break from talking about Kate Middleton to talk about another Brit who's style I might just like more than Kate's. Samantha Cameron was in the US last week and she looked ladylike and totally chic. I haven't really paid too much attention to her fashion choices apart from seeing her hatless at the royal wedding last April. Let's be honest, the only reason I know what she was wearing is because it was THE royal wedding. Prior to David Cameron becoming British Prime Minister she was the creative director at Smythson and her sister Emily Sheffield is the deputy director of British Vogue so I guess fashion is in their genes.

I think my favourite looks are the pink blouse above and the blue and green dress below.

Kate Middleton wears LK Bennett

If you have been reading the blog for a while you will know that I have a slight large obsession with Kate Middleton and all things royal. I don't always love her outfit choices but I thought her choice for yesterday's appearance with Queen Elizabeth and Prince Phillip was kind of perfect. The dress and jacket are still conservative but a bit more fashion forward than she usually goes for. I love the peplum detail on the jacket and I think she looks chic and glamourous which I suppose is exactly what a princess is supposed to look like, right?

You can get Kate's dress through L.K.Bennett  for £225  and the jacket through L.K.Bennett for £145

Butter London Wallis

This is another of the polishes that my friend Lauren sent me over Christmas. I had seen Wallis online and thought it was a really unique metallic so I was excited to try it out. I love the way the colour seems to change and it is a great alternative to a gold or rose gold nail colour.

New Hair!

Last week I decided to cut my hair. I have a bad habit of cutting inches of at one time and then not cutting it again for a year or more. I once went 2 years without cutting it because I chopped it into a bob on a whim and was so upset after I actually cried. I usually have a really laid back attitude when it comes to hair cuts because it's hair. It grows back! But it turns out when you decide in under five minutes to chop off all your hair you just might regret it. Anyway, the last time I chopped my hair was last April so I decided it was time to do it again.

Here I am with 3-4 inches less hair.

RMS Beauty Lip Shine in Bloom

I've recently taken an interest in more natural beauty products after reading about all the toxic chemicals that are in most of the products we use on a regular basis. I'm far from using all natural products but one step at a time. I recently read about RMS Beauty which is a line that uses all natural and food grade ingredients in their products and is also certified organic. I decided to try their lip shine and I kind of love it. It is very moisturizing and surprisingly pigmented for a lip product in a pot.

Here is a swatch with flash
