Bespoke Accessories: Cooper and Hill

Richmond Purse £59.00 by Cooper & Hill *

Recently I got the chance to be part of a focus group for a newly launched brand called Cooper and Hill. Cooper and Hill offer bespoke and made to order accessories all made in Britain. The purse seen above was the result of their #crowddesign in which we all contributed to the design of the perfect purse.....and it certainly is that! The Richmond Purse fits my money, iPhone and a lippy so can be used as a clutch bag too which I love. So reasons to fall in love with their designs; firstly they are stunningly chic, secondly their prices are more than reasonable for the quality you are getting and lastly the leather used is a byproduct of the meat industry.

I haven't come across a brand like this before in the sense that the customer is fully involved with the process from design to finish. Could this be the future of fashion design? Would you like the chance to be more involved with the products you purchase? Let me know below!

In the meantime do head over to their website here and show them some love!

Be the Revolution: Free Wallpapers!

Ahead of Fashion Revolution day on the 24th of this month, I've created some inspo wallpapers to paste all over your devices to raise awareness for this event! #FASHREV raises awareness of unethical fashion practices within today's fashion industry and aims to increase transparency within clothing supply chains. 

"Together we will use the power of fashion to inspire change and reconnect the broken links in the supply chain."

So here's how you can get involved.... On the 24th take a selfie showing one of your clothing labels that you're wearing that day, tagging that brand on Twitter using the hashtag #whomadeyourclothes. We have the right to know where our clothes are being made and we also have the right to challenge today's current fashion model...so make sure your voice is heard!  To find out about more ways you can get involved head to their website.

The Perfect Nude: Givenchy Le Rouge

Le Rouge Intense Colour Lipstick in 107 Beige Caraco £25.00 at Feel Unique

I've been searching for the perfect nude lipstick for quite some time and I finally found it thanks to Givenchy! The shade I chose is not too dissimilar from my actual lip colour, so it's a perfect match and is wonderful for those days where you want to fake it to the world that you're actually wearing any makeup.

The pigmentation of the lipstick is fantastic and I've found it lasts a decent amount of time especially if you powder over it. What I love most is that it feels really moisturising and doesn't dry out my lips after multiple applications... it also has just the right amount of shine! All in all it's a winner for me and will certainly become a regular fixture in my makeup bag!

Are you a fan of any Givenchy beauty products? If so, let me know which ones you love below!

Nourish Vita Boost Body Cream

The weather has been gloooorious of late and as I become progressively more excited for summer, I begin to shed my winter beauty regimes (i.e maintaining hairy legs for warmth) in aid of more summer friendly ones. Keeping my body moisturised and protected is particularly important in the warmer months and this latest offering from Nourish does just that.

The Vita Boost Body Cream contains Apple Glycans to improve cellular messaging, skin elasticity and suppleness and is full of peptides to give the appearance of firmer and smoother skin. Another great ingredient in there is East African Shea Nilotica which softens and protects the skin from moisture loss. This body cream also smells of apples which I think is a perfect scent for summer!

You can certainly see the moisturising effects of this cream after one use, but I'm really excited to continue the use of this cream to see what long term effects it will have on the areas of my body prone to cellulite.

Have any of you began changing your seasonal beauty regimes? If so let me know below!

Free Downloadable Wallpapers!

Hello everybody! 

Today I come bearing wallpapers for your laptops, phones and tablets.....because who doesn't love free stuff?! 

The past few months have been really hard and I find myself constantly repeating to myself "just keep looking forward...just keep going Hannah" and so I thought I would remind myself this by creating a wallpaper I can see and carry around with me everyday. Then I thought hey, why not share it my blog. I know when times get hard sometimes the smallest things can have the biggest inspiration and guidance. So whether you need a little pick me up or just a new wallpaper, hopefully this can help!

Share and enjoy!
