Colour Crush Nails from The Body Shop

On Sunday I attended an event at the Preston branch of The Body Shop hosted by the lovely Rachelle to celebrate the launch of their new Colour Crush nail varnishes which go on sale in their stores and online today!

The Colour Crush nail varnish collection comprises 24 shades inspired by nature including a clear top and base coat to protect your polish. They're cruelty free and 100 % vegan. The polishes are quick drying and boast a high gloss shine similar to the shine you get with shellac polishes.

Rach kindly let us choose our favourite shade to take home.. after much deliberation over the colours ( I want them all!) I was drawn to 'Peach Babe' but couldn't resist picking up 'Got The Blues' too, it's the perfect blueberry shade for the winter months. The polishes retail at a purse friendly £5.00 and I'm sure I'll be adding to my collection soon.

We also got chance to test out some of the products in the new Argan Oil range enriched with Fair Trade Argan Oil from Morocco including the Miracle Solid Oil to give a moisture boost to dry skin and hair, the Bubbling Bath Oil which creates rich bubbles for you to relax amongst whilst the oil soothes you and the moisturising Argan Oil Body Lotion.

Thank you to Rach and The Body Shop for another great event.. I can't wait for the next one!

What They Wore... Golden Globes 2014

The 71st Annual Golden Globe awards held in LA last night saw the red carpet awash with a mixture of colourful gowns, metallic hues, red lips and statement jewellery. These are my top ten looks from the evening.

Caitlin Fitzgerald went straight on my best dressed list in this vintage style powder blue Emilia Wickstead gown with a mullet hem. Relatively new to red carpet scene Lupita Nyong'o stood out in a red off the shoulder cape dress by Ralph Lauren. 

Anything but a standard LBD, Cate Blanchett wowed in an Armani Prive lace couture gown. She accessorised with diamond Chopard earrings from their Green Carpet Collection. Not only was she a winner in the fashion stakes, she took home the award for 'Best Actress' in 'Blue Jasmine.' Also opting for black lace, Leslie Mann stepped out in this striking peplum dress from Dolce & Gabbana.

Michelle Dockery and Zooey Deschanel both chose Oscar de la Renta to create a fairytale look for the red carpet. Michelle paired her pretty jewelled gown with a simple red lip. I loved Zooey's embellished cropped top styled with a full tulle skirt and studded Oscar de la Renta pumps. Renowned for her love of nail art she opted for a daisy manicure for the awards. 

The Downton Abbey ladies certainly know how to party in style with Laura Carmichael also looking effortlessly elegant on the red carpet in a monochrome Viktor & Rolf gown with a sweetheart neckline and a simple silhouette. Margot Robbie wore a plunging white Gucci dress with a thigh high split which revealed emerald green Christian Louboutin's matching her emerald and crystal lined gown.

Helen Mirren looked stunning in a bespoke draped gown from one of my favourite British designers, Jenny Packham. I loved the beaded detailing across the emerald fabric. To compliment the dress she wore emerald and diamond earrings. The metallic trend was popular on the night. Naomi Watts stood out in this metallic Tom Ford gown with a statement gold chain necklace.
