The Road So Far



Hello everyone!

We haven't been posting much lately due to university work, but we are currently on a 4 day week-end so we're making the most of our time off! We went out to shoot these photos by our street, the road around the corner. It was surprisingly warm despite being in November : Summer is wearing these black cigarette trousers from H&M, with this basic long-sleeved shirt from Mango. We don't usually wear those type of pants, but I just thought these ones were really cool, and they look so good with chunky jumpers! You've probably noticed that we don't wear figure-fitting tops very often, this jumper however is just the perfect fit: it isn't tight under the arms or across the neck. Loveee it. I decided to wear this black blouse from Mango paired with this new quilted skirt from H&M. What I like about this skirt is that it's really well fitted, and I love the texture of it. Since it was warm out I decided to wear my lighter suede jacket from Mango, one of my all time favourite buys, it's seriously so nice! Summer wore this longline coat I bought from Next a couple of years back. Both bags are from Zara!

A little beauty post!



Hello everyone!

In Chicago a few weeks ago, I went a little crazy when we went shopping. Although you can order a lot of make up products online in France, there are still so many that are impossible to get hold of here! So as soon as we walked into Sephora, my jaw dropped and I just stared at all the beauty products that I had been hoping to buy for so long. I actually made a list of the ones I wanted beforehand, & we were able to get pretty much all of them! I wish I had bought more, but money soon adds up, so hopefully I'll be able to buy some stuff in London this Christmas! Hopefully we will do another beauty post soon so you can see how we wear the products. 

smashbox camera ready BB Cream in shade fair
  • First of all, the Smashbox BB Cream is incredible. It feels so light and fresh on the skin, & it gives a slightly dewy look without going greasy after 1 hour or so. It also offers great sun protection, SPF 35, so perfect for wearing whilst on holiday. It really does cover my skin perfectly, it doesn't go cakey or a strange color like most BB creams I've used!


NARS Contour Blush in Olympia
  • We also decided to buy our first contour, we chose the NARS contour blush in the shade Olympia, because we've heard so many positive things about it! We haven't used it yet as we're hoping to buy some new brushes soon! Normally I just use bronzer under my cheekbones to give a bit more definition to my face and to give it a little colour. I'm pretty happy I have quite prominent cheek bones, so I always make the most of them by wearing blush & bronzer.


NARS Dual Intensity Eyeshadow in Himalia

  • I fell in love with this eyeshadow. I haven't used it in any recent posts, but it truly brighten's up your eyes, all you need is a coat or two of mascara and you're ready to go! Although I usually wear this shimmery colour in the summer months, it looks great with f/w looks as the colour is pretty subtle. We decided to buy the NARS wet/dry eyeshadow brush with this as we didn't have one for this kind of eyeshadow (which can be applied with a dampened brush for a more "intense" look!)




MAC eyeshadow in Mythology & Satin Taupe

  • Ok. Time to talk about my personal favourite. I heard so many good things about the MAC eyeshadow in Satin Taupe (on the right!) I had been looking for a taupe eyeshadow for this autumn/winter, & I can honestly say this did not disappoint! The colour is gorgeous, I love wearing it with a flick of eyeliner or just on it's own with a nice coat of mascara (which is what I usually do for uni!) I think it really warms up my look as I usually wear alot of neutrals & browns, so in winter I tend to "warm up" my make-up, because otherwise my face is just as pale as a sheet! Mythology is also beautiful, it's a lot more daring I think, it's great for a night out or any special occasion.



NARS Pure Matte lipstick in Tonkin & Montego Bay

Nars "Montego Bay"
  • Recently I've been trying to wear lipstick more often. It's amazing how it can change a look in an instant, whether it's a dramatic evening look or just to add a little "more" to your everyday look. I personally love wearing pinky & "natural" looking lipsticks, so it looks as natural as possible. Montego Bay is just amazing. I will probably do a more detailed post on some of our make-up looks!

September // October in film - Part 1


Hello everyone!

One of the things I love the most about film photography is waiting for them to be developed. We always forget what we shot, so it's such a lovely surprise when you look through them for the first time and discover a moment that you forgot you captured!

Mustard



Wait, is that mustard?!
 I spent ages in the dressing room trying to decide whether I should buy this or not. I usually shy away from yellow colors as most of the time it clashes with my hair. but since I have this weird naturally dark roots situation I thought it didn't look too bad. (Plus my Mum told me to buy it & mums always know best.) This was the first time Holly & I shot some outfit looks since Chicago, deleting the pictures off my memory card was a little depressing, but it was such an amazing experience so we can only smile that it happened! Soo the weather is so cold now & night falls alot sooner. Taking pictures in this kind of weather is always a little challenging, especially when your fingers go numb and you can't press any buttons!

Chicago - Part II



Hello guys!

Ok, I'm in such a good mood today. Summer, Kate & I had a big presentation to do in front of our class at Uni and nailed it, and got a good note. Oh, and One Night Only's new song is out, and it feels so GOOD to hear some new music from them!

Chicago // Part I


Hello everyone!

    It was mid-december when Holly ran into my room to tell me that Mum had bought us Chi-Con tickets. I can't believe how quickly time has gone past these last few months. We decided to stay an extra day in Chicago after the convention, and so, on Monday, we got up early to explore to city of Chicago. We have been to the states before, we used to go to Florida every year when we were kids, but never have I been to a huge city filled with skyscrapers, busy streets filled with people... I fell in love with this place the moment I walked out of the train station. I wasn't sure what to expect, but the atmosphere was something entirely different to any other city I have been to. Everyone seemed laid-back and carefree. It was wonderful. We started the day off by going to the Millennium Park, because I reallly wanted to see the giant bean, (I just had to see it!) which was succeeded by a little shopping on the Magnificent Mile where I was finally able to purchase some beauty products that are impossible to get hold of in France. (Look out for a beauty post soon!) & the customer service was so incredibly helpful! For lunch, we chose Burrito Beach, simply because it smelt so, SO good. This pretty much fueled me for the day! After our lunch, we wondered around the city before going to the Navy Pier, where my parents went to on their honeymoon!  For those wondering, Chicago is known as the "The Windy City", but we were so incredibly lucky with the weather that day, it was sunny, warm & clear all day. It may not have been windy in the city but on the Pier was a different story! Nonetheless, it is truly beautiful there and worth walking around. The skyline view of the city is breathtaking. Unfortunately they were doing some construction work on the pier, so a few shops were shut, but it didn't disrupt much, and we were still able to appreciate all it's beauty. 
In this PART I, I've put pictures from Millennium Park until our Burrito Beach lunch stop as we took so many pics! ( And of course more details on our looks!) Enjoy x

SUPERNATURAL CHICON 2014!



Okay guys. Let's talk about Chicon.

Last wednesday, Summer & I traveled to Chicago to experience the Supernatural Convention. For those of you who don't know, Supernatural is an American tv show currently in it's 10th season on CW! I can honestly say it was the best week-end of my life. Summer & I are so passionate about film & television, we're currently in our second year of studying film and theater at university! So this is something we've been looking forward to for a VERY long time!

*In this post you will see all of the PHOTO-OPS we had with the cast & a couple of pics we took during the panels. Unfortunately our camera doesn't take the best pictures in low light. The reason we're sharing these is because we wanted to show you guys what it was like from our perspective, not just pictures from the front row taken by a professional. *
