#B1turns10 and a make up question!

I think this may be my new favourite OOTD location. Not only is there nobody around to throw quizzal glances at you whilst you prance around but the light is perfect. Expect to see it many more times!

To kick off the weekend I thought I would wear my new Zoe Karssen tee and some sloppy jeans. I feel like Zoe Karssen is grown up Wildfox. It's not quite so cutesy but still appeals to the part of you that likes those quirky printed statement clothes.

I got this from Boutique 1 to commemorate 10 years of them being in business. Their favourite designers have created a special item for the occasion and Zoe Karssen came up with this Kiss Your Heart Out tee. In honour of the occasion I threw on some other items I have got from Boutique 1 in the past:

* A Vanessa Bruno broiderie anglaise jacket I picked up in the summer sale; and
* My By Sophie necklace

Tee: Koe Karssen - Link!
Jacket: Vanessa Bruno
Jeans: Zara
Boots: Isabel Marant - Link!
Bag: Alexander Wang - Link!
Sunglasses: House of Harlow

My hair is currently mourning the loss of Oribe Texturising spray. We are still in that phase where we cannot quite believe the can is done and so spray air into our roots.

Today I will make a Space NK (and possible Selfridges) beauty order in time for Xmas and that's one thing I will definitely be adding to basket along with:

* Mac Candy Yum Yum - no stock in Dubai/denial of it's existence by sales assistants
* The Ciate nail polish advent calendar - I was very jealous of all that had this last year so this December I am getting my own :)
* Charlotte Tilbury something....although not sure what exactly.

Are there any must haves that I cannot miss out on? Let me know before I checkout! :)

Happy Saturday!


  1. The jacket looks great and the top looks really cozy!


  2. Dude, your skin/make up looks flawless!!! I need this slap on my face!! :)

  3. Clarins Extra Comfort is what you need :)

    1. I am sooo getting involved!! Hope they have a good shade match for me!! x

  4. Same here about Charlotte Tilbury. I know I want something but don't know what! The lipsticks looks specially luxurious... But so do the blushes, and the eyeshadow palettes. Aaaaaaah decisions!!!

    P.S. You look absolutely stunning here, this hair suits you incredibly well.

    1. Check out my comment below, I've put in my recommendations for the Tilbury line. Personally, I'm a Nars girl when it comes to blush, so I wasn't too keen on the Tilbury ones at the counter.

  5. Hi Laura! Enjoy your online shopping! You made me giggle when you said 'denial of its existance' in Dubai-so Dubai! I am putting a review on my blog today of the Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks-I have reviewed the Uptown Girl palette as well-would be delighted if you came over and had a look! xxx

  8. A nice casual outfit and the location and lighting is gorgeous, such a beautiful post :)

  9. The bag looks great in that colour! A nice change from the usual black.

  10. Wow the lighting really is perfect! I love your "sloppy" jeans and that tee. I have been wanting a Zoe Karssen top since the "Creme de la Creme" sweatshirt!

  11. You can probably get this in Dubai, but you need the new chanel holiday eye palette. I wasn't wowed online but its an-mazing

  12. I wish we had such warm weather in London.

  13. I love this look of yours! <3 Gorgeous place to take photos at, too! You are so lovely, Laura! :)

  14. Clarins Extra Comfort foundation is not sold in the US. :-(

  15. Great outfit!

    As for your upcoming haul, I thought I'd share my Charlotte Tilbury wishlist, maybe it'll give you an idea or two: Filmstar Bronze & Glow, the eyeshadow pencil in Dark Pearl, one of the lipglosses (can't make up my mind, they all look lovely), and the Flawless Finish Powder...


  16. i'm such a lover of quirky tops with young (but not quite childish) slogans on them so this one was an absolute hit with me! i'm definitely going to have to have a look at zoe karssen's stuff after this post to see what other lovely things she has to offer! i'm not a huge fan of designer clothing but sometimes there is that one thing that i cannot get out of my head and these isabel marant boots are an example of this. i loved them when i first saw them and would probably do anything to get my hands on a pair! the ciate advent calendar is something i NEED as well! i was so jealous of all those with it last year so i am determined to get my hands on one this year! :) X


  17. Fantastic looking forward to my Ciate advent calender too!


  18. The Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids in Fuchsia Flash is very similar to Candy Yum Yum, maybe not identical, but if you can find it, it could hold you over until you get Candy Yum Yum :)

  19. I like your style. The blue jeans looks great. I think you should buy a hermes birkin bag to fit this style. I know a website http://www.macybags.com which have huge selection of hermes bags. Check out the website if you interest in it.

  20. Such a lovely outfit.. you look so nice :)


  21. Have you tried the bumble and bumble dryspun? I've got dead thick hair and it manages to give me some airy lift - love it!

  22. I absolutely LOVE the t-shirt! Gorgeous photos!

  23. I just got back from London a couple of weeks ago and lemme just say, my bank account doesn't like ms. Tilbury as much as my face does! I did a double sweep on the make up counter in Selfridges! The girls at the counter are especially lovely so you want to buy even more (I'm a sucker for nice makeup counter staff). The girls were also saying they are talking about bring the brand to Dubai :O *excited squeal*

    My must haves are the Mascara (I ended up asking for a friend to bring me back up stock), Lipsticks (I love the shades Marilyn and Love Bite), Lip Pencils, Liquid Liner and Kohl Pencils (i wore this combo to Sandance for 12 hours last weekend and it did not budge!) and the eye shadow pencils (in shades amber haze, which is an antiqued gold and black pearl, a shiny mauvey taupey color).

    The nice to haves are the eye shadow quads, but I found that most shades have dupes and the fine gold highlighter. The fine gold highlighter is why I went to the counter in the first place, but after using it I find that it is a beautiful product (It makes you look like there is a real dewy glow on your face) but its not really wearable, often people ask what product you are wearing cause its so shiny! But it is awesome for evenings in dimly lit restaurants and bars.

    I have one regret though, and that is not buying the magic cream :( Hope this helps you decide!
