Glitter and Gold

Thank you for taking a look at my first ever FASHION post. So I recently went to Body English at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas for a fun night with friends. What I love about Vegas nights out is that, when it comes to fashion you cannot be overdressed.

None of these pieces are new, in fact the gold sequin top is what I wore for my 18th birthday! (I am about to turn 26!)

So here is the #OOTD: As mentioned before the top is almost 8 years old and I bought it at Oasis  but I found something similar on Forever 21.com  and Asos.com

The belt is a recent sale purchase from Asos.com which can be found here: Belt

The skirt is about a year old and from Bershka and I found something similar on Asos.com here.

My shoes and bag are two of my favourite sale finds ever! I used to work in fashion retail and have collected some fantastic sale finds over the years.

The shoes are Yves Saint Laurent , I got them in the Harvey Nichols sale about 2 years ago.

The bag is Jimmy Choo and is a mix of Gold and Pewter metal discs and really goes with EVERYTHING! Again I got it in the Harvey Nichols sale.

I am NOT a make up artist, but I do follow some amazing professionals online for inspiration. Also I only have my iPhone camera so the picture quality is not very good but here is the general look I was going for:

On my face:

  •  Laura Mercier Silk Creme foundation in Sand
  • ELF Shimmering Facial Whip in Lilac Petal
  • Trish McEvoy Flawless Concealer
  • Rimmel Stay Matte powder in Transparent
  • Wet N Wild Pearlescent Rose
  • H&M Bronzing Powder


  • Trish McEvoy Eye base Essentials for primer
  • Urban Decay Naked 2 palette
  • Revlon Eyelashes
  • YSL Shocking Mascara
  • L’oreal The Super Slim Liquid Eyeliner
  • NYC Browser Brush-on Brow kit in Brunette

Inspiration for my smokey eye from Vegas Nay



  • Rimmel Exaggerate liner in Eastend snob
  • Rimmel Kate Moss lipstick shade 14.
  • Inspiration  from BeautyntheBronzer

Even though I live in Vegas and I am still super pale so to get a bronzed glow I mixed two Sally Hansen tans: Airbrush Leg Lotion in Tan glow and a little bit of Airbrush leg in Deep glow.
