Christmas Haul

Thankfully, we were able to spend another Christmas together (due to the slightly later occurrence of Russian Christmas, more on that later) and enjoy the day with family and friends. As you can imagine, the day consisted of spending hours sorting out the house and preparing the food, several minutes eating it and feeling like a beached whale afterwards. We were also lucky to get some pretty sick presents, which we hope you will enjoy seeing :P
From the top:
Top - Asos
'It' by Alexa Chung
Layering Necklaces - Urban Outfitters
Beauty Set - Superdry
Air Max 'Thea' - Nike
Lurex Crop Top - Topshop

Nail Polish - Marks and Spencer & Topshop
You probably won't see us until 2015 but a resolution will definitely be to try and blog more instead of procrastinating and being inconsistent. We also now have a Bloglvin account (here) and a Lookbook account (here), so make sure to  check out some of our latest OOTDs. 
We hope you had a good Christmas and will see you in the New Year!

Winter Makeup + Music Favourites

Eye cream - Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye Cream 
Moisturiser - Korres Wild Rose 24-hour Moisturising and Brightening Cream (great for a more healthy-looking complexion and smells great)
Mask - Origins Clear Improvements Active Charcoal Mask to clear pores (non-drying and you skin will feel amazing afterwards)
Serum - Murad Perfecting Serum (You need this! Completely non-greasy oil which you can incorporate within your daily skincare routine. Add a pump to your moisturiser and your skin will feel silky smooth even throughout the cold winter months) 

Blush - e.l.f. Blush in Mellow Mauve (great autumn/winter colour with subtle highlight)
Highlighter - Too Faced Highlighting Powder Duo (champagne colour when mixed together)
Contour Palette - Smashbox Cosmetics (great for travel with a perfect cool coloured contour powder, warm coloured bronzer and matte highlight)
Lipstick - Dior lipstick in 386 Mauve Fascination (pinky/purply undertone with subtle sheen)
Lipgloss - Bite Beauty Lush Fruit Lip Gloss in Currant (very moisturising and an amazing autumn/winter colour)
Lip liner - Sephora Retractable Waterproof Lip Liner in Mauve (perfect for Kylie Jenner looking lips! Stays on all day but is still so moisturising)
Eyelashes - Eyelure Pro-Lash Short, Medium and Long Length Individual Lashes (ideal for adding volume and length. Add a couple on top on your lash strip where extra "attention" is needed)
Eyeshadow palette - Too Faced Chocolate Bar ( wide range of matte and shimmery colours. Great for travel and smells like chocolate! Who wouldn't want that?)
Mascara - Shu Uemura Stretch Xtreme Waterproof Mascara (AMAZING! One of the best mascaras that I've tried in a long time. Give your lashes volume and hold a curl for an unbelievable amount of time. Makes your eyes look awake and so much bigger!)
Brow pencil - Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in Taupe (Makes your brow game so strong. All I need to say)
Eyeliner - Sephora 24h Wear Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner in Black Lace (super thin sponge applicator helps create a very thin line, but at the same time very buildable)

Brushes/Makeup Bag
Brushes and makeup Bag - MAC Cosmetics Mineralise Brush Kit (very useful brushes come in a gorgeous case for an amazing price! Includes Duo Fibre Face Brush, Short Duo Fibre Brush, Duo Fibre Tapered Blending Brush and a Duo Fibre Eyeshadow Brush. The handles are short making this set ideal for travelling!)

From rap to electronic to boy bands, here are some of our music picks this winter. We hope you enjoy them and have a happy holiday

Silver shoes and other things...

Loafers and Heels (kindof new but not really) - Out From Under at Urban Outfitters
Bodysuit and Socks - Urban Outfitters
Trousers - Topshop
Jumpers - Mango
'Oh look at the spectrum of colours', said no one, ever, about this post. When getting into the colder months edging towards cooler, darker, more subdued colours seems like the easy way out. In London, winter weather is not film-like with fluffy snow and happy faces, but instead a period filled with rain, sleet hail gloomy skies etc.., so for me, the colour palette normally reflects this time. Obviously dressing in darker or even more neutral colours is not for everyone and if you feel like going out dressed like Barbie then be my guest :)
The jumpers are mainly rather basic essentials for keeping warm during winter, while the other stuff does not really fall into the category of necessity, but general temptation and likability,

'Saatchi 'Saatchi (OOTD)

Top and Hoodie (worn around the waist) - American Apparel
Jeans and Shoes - Topshop
Jewellery - Asos
A couple of weeks ago we had the opportunity to visit the Saatchi Gallery, a modern art museum in Chelsea, London. The photos seen above are just a few examples of some of the fantastic pieces which we saw around the gallery, which boasted several rooms and floors of artwork, for example, the 'Oil Room' (last photo, above) where the floor of the room is covered in oil, making a really cool and trippy reflective effect (see Google for more details as this is not the best description).

If I was a rich girl...

(Clockwise from top left)
Shirt-Dress - Topshop Boutique
Jumper - Acne
Bag - Celine
Backpack - Sandro
*nana nana nana nana nana nana nana naaaaa*
AW14/15 Is sadly, tragically finally here, so that means new season wardrobe. As one can imagine, being more-or-less normal teenagers basically means you are living off the five to twenty pound notes handed to you from your parents, hence not being able to afford the items above. Most of these are dark colours (apologies to anyone neon/pastel fans out there) and are more of the edgier products from a few higher-end shops. 
Feel free to comment and tell us which item you like best, how it could be styled, and even leave a link to a good dupe or similar item that will not cost an arm or a leg :p

London Fashion Week SS15 - OOTD and Street Style

Outfit 1:
Top - Zadig and Voltaire
Jacket - Dansk
Shoes and Bag: Zara
Outfit 2:
Top - Cheap Monday
Skirt - Topshop

 This ear we got the opportunity to go to check out Somerset House during London Fashion Week. We didn't manage to get any tickets for the show but the courtyard was open to the public and some of the catwalk shows were put on a big screen. Amongst all of the people tottering about in high heels  and swapping cards, we managed to find a few people to photograph for this post (our favourites are the two girls near the beginning of the post). We hope you enjoyed this post and manage to get some inspiration from these people (and will try to blog more consistently ...)
