QUEEN OF THE JUNGLE

This Autumn-Winter, as the weather gets wilder, it’s only right that you trust your animal instincts and wrap yourself up in printed furs and detailed leathers to keep the cold away. Think olive greens, safari-inspired silhouettes and mixed animal prints embellished with rich golds and strong hardware.

Time to update your RAWRdrobe? Shop our ‘Queen of the Jungle’ trend here.

HOW TO DO VAMPY LIPS FOR HALLOWEEN

We all know that a dark vampy lip is a Halloween classic. But, if worn with a flawless base it’s also incredibly wearable and a subtly sexy alternative to a bold red for AW.

how to do vampy lips

Here’s how to get the perfect lip look for All Hallows Eve – try teaming your plum toned lip with a sleek cat eye flick or take it to the next level with black kohl rimmed smoky eyes and LOADS of lashes!

Step 1

how to do vampy lips

When you’re applying your base all over your face and neck, go ahead and apply it over your lip area to act as a matte base – this will really amplify the colour.

Step 2

how to do vampy lips

Line the lips with a dark plum colour, this will stop the colour from bleeding out – we know its Halloween but that’s just TOO scary.

Step 3

Apply the berry shade with a lip brush rather than directly from the tube or wand. This will give you more control and give a neater finish.

Pat it into the lip lines if necessary.

Step 4

Place a blotting paper or tissue over the lip area and gently press to take off any excess.

NICOLE X MISSGUIDED AND BELLABOX

This month, to celebrate the launch of our second Nicole x Missguided collection, we partnered up with Australian beauty box brand, bellabox, to bring our Australian customers something special…

If you’re anything like us then you’ll hate having to sort the best beauty products from the bad.  That’s why we love bellabox because they do the hard work for us, scouring the world for the best products all sourced from well-known, cult and emerging brands and delivered straight to your front door.

The babes at bellabox sent us a sneak preview of the exclusive box created especially for the Nicole x Missguided launch and we can tell you that it really is a beauty.  Our tip, get it quick before these exclusive boxes sell out.  We just received our box and here’s what we thought…

exclusive missguided bellabox

We might be a bit biased but this box is the perfect pack to help you get ready for your night out.  What better way to prep for a party than with a long, hot soak in a bubble bath with the help of the sweetly scented Lush Comfort Bubble Bar.  This might just be the most amazing bubble bar that we’ve ever smelled.

Post-soak, the Nivea Stress Protect Deodorant and Premium Spa Firming Lotion came in handy to help us get ready for a night out with the girls, and of course we wouldn’t go out without painting our nails.  There’s nothing we love more than a mani and this smokin’ shade of red from Kester Black was the perfect colour to match to our outfits.

We even got sent Le Tan Fragrance Free Tanning Oil but that’ll be of more use to our Austrailian friends than it will us right now (not jeal of the super-hot weather at all)!

With our party prep complete, we’re ready to pull on our fave Nicole x Missguided dress and head out!

If you fancy testing out the exclusive Nicole x Missguided bellabox for yourself, be quick because we don’t think they’ll be around for long.

AN ULTIMATE GUIDE TO LONDON

the ultimate guide to london

It’s been said that if you’re tired of London, you’re tired of life. The Brit capital is a bustling, multi-cultural, cosmopolitan magnet for tourists from all over the world – so if you want to see more of the real London, we’ve teamed up with vintage maven and style blogger Sara Waiste to create the perfect guide for you.

What to Wear

There’s more to London than Big Ben and the Queen’s Guard – although we give them major fashion snaps for rocking those tall fur hats. London is well established as one of the most stylish cities in the world with any anything goes attitude, the bolder the better.

“I love anything furry and faux for autumn and a great leopard print faux fur is hard to find. I love how this one looks like it could easily be vintage but it’s the perfect fit. London weather is very changeable so it’s all about the layering for the colder weather, although I’m not ready for black tights just yet!”

Sara is wearing the Missguided Kylie Leopard Fur Coat, Dharma turtleneck top, Tacita Crochet Cardigan, Carri Paisley Skirt and Camilla Brogues.

Two Top Tips

1. A chic and comfortable coat is going to be your best friend.

2. If you’re going to see the sights, leave the heels at home. No matter how beautiful they are, stilettos are less than ideal for the escalators on the tube or for the amount of pavement you’ll pound whilst sightseeing.

Where to Shop

ultimate guide to london

‘Broadway market is a great place to hang out on the weekends, it has an incredible market on Saturdays (lots of cheese and cakes) and on Sundays it’s a great place to go for a coffee or brunch, there’s so many little cafes and independent shops. There’s lots of great pubs for evening drinks too.’

‘It’s a short walk over a pretty east London canal to Columbia Road flower market, which is open every Sunday, and full of every kind of flower you can think of. It’s best to go either really early or really late (for discounted flowers) as any other time you can’t move for the amount of people in the street. There’s a few little side streets full of vintage and antiques too.’

‘One of my favourite places to go on a weekend is Princess May Carboot on Kingsland Road, which is great for vintage clothing and furniture and it’s on every Saturday or Sunday, you can grab anything from here from peacock chairs and penny lane coats to rare records and art pictures. It’s great if you love hunting for treasure!’

Where to Hang Out

‘I love walking through London fields, it’s great to have such a big expanse of greenery in the big city, and right around the corner too, they’ve recently even grown a meadow in there which is so pretty and a lovely place to walk through.’

‘Right next to the flower market is Hackney City Farm! Such a fun place to visit, they have so many animals including donkeys, pigs, sheep and chickens, giving you the chance to feel like you’re in the countryside, sometimes you almost forget you’re actually in the middle of London!’

‘If you wander down Kingsland Road afterwards there’s a couple of great cafes and bars. I love the Harvest Organic cafe, perfect to sit in for a coffee and a yummy cake or shopping for any organic products as it’s also a massive healthy supermarket too.’

guide to london

‘The best pizza in town is Voodoo Rays opposite, they sell pizza by the slice in the most incredible toppings, being veggie my favourite is the Giorgio Moroder (goats cheese, tomatoes, courgette and basil) and the tequila frozen margaritas are amazing too.’

guide to london

‘Hash E8 is a brand new brunch place at the end of Ridley Road. My new fave there is called beets and sweets – it’s beetroot and sweet potato hash with kale poached egg and hollandaise, perfect after a night out! Next to Hash E8 is Healthy Stuff, a great place to grab a smoothie to go, and they also do brunch too when you’re feeling in the mood to be a little more healthy.’

guide to london

‘A little further along down Kingsland road there are some great pubs including The Fox, and my favourite little sushi place called Brilliant Corners. They do the best vegan tempura and great wine – it’s my favourite place to hang out with my boyfriend when we want to grab something delicious to eat.’

What to Listen to

Goldsmiths College graduate Guy Baron is delivering a quietly beautiful new take on the art of sampling. Semi Precious reharmonizes his samples, switching up the pitch with eerie vocals to craft something slick, silky and mesmeric.
