Foxes (real name Louisa Rose Allen) is a 24 year old singer from Southampton. I first discovered her when I saw her supporting Marina and the Diamonds in Wolverhampton last October and I immediately fell in love with both her voice and her gorgeous style. I’ve been waiting ages to get a chance to see her again and it’s finally going to happen on Friday in Birmingham, I’m so excited!
I love everything she wears, her outfits always look so stylish yet so effortless at the same time – something that I wish I could pull off. Her hair and make up is always perfect and I have to admit that she’s one of the main reasons why I got my fringe back. I’ve got terrible hair/face/wardrobe envy. When I saw her last October, she was wearing a Justin Timberlake/Christina Aguilera tour tshirt and she even looked good in that. To be honest, I think Foxes could look good in a bin bag.
If you’ve never heard of Foxes before, I recommend you get yourself on YouTube and listen to a few of her tracks. My personal favourite is Beauty Queen which is the first song that she performed in Wolverhampton and I had to wait seven months for it to be released!
I was recently contacted by the people at Marc B who had seen my review of the Liberty Cloud Blue that I won a few weeks ago and I was asked if I would like to choose a bag off their website to review. I had a hard time choosing just one as I love them all! Eventually, I settled for this one, the Tori Soft Tan.
The Tori is pretty big, even for me and I always carry big bags! It has two compartments with pockets for your mobile phone and keys and a zipped pocket on the inside and on the outside there’s another zipped pocket on the back. I couldn’t decide between the black or the tan but eventually picked the tan as I have a lot of black bags already and I think tan is better for the summer. Of course it comes with the signature Marc B leopard print lining and has a gorgeous twist lock closure. I love that this bag is big enough to carry A4 folders in so it means I can fit all my usual stuff in there and still have room for more. The quality of the bag is amazing and I can see this lasting me a very long time. I’m planning on taking it to Paris with me in October.
This khaki jacket is such a bargain at £14.99 and I have in fact already bought it! I think it’s a great alternative to a denim or leather jacket and I can wear it with jeans without having to worry about committing the terrible double denim fashion crime. I can’t wait for it to arrive, I just hope I like it as much in person.
I love the cat tee from These Folk
– I can’t believe I’ve only just discovered this shop! I love most of the items there and now feel like I need to own everything.
The sunflower dress is perfect for summer but I think it would also look great with a cardigan and jacket for the colder months. I don’t usually like things from River Island but this really caught my eye when I was in store.
I seem to have a thing for floral bras at the moment after recently buying one from New Look. I saw this in Topshop and now I’m completely in love with it. I’m going to have to treat myself after my holiday if they still have it in store.
I’ve been eyeing up this Illamasqua blush for ages. Every time I go to Selfridges I have a swatch of it but I never get around to buying it. There’s something about cream blushes that I’m not too sure about. However, I might actually pick it up tomorrow when I’m at a beauty event in the store.. it’s either that, the new ESP lipstick
or a MAC lipstick. It’s a hard choice!
