Our New Year, New You fashion shoot!

“It’s As Cold as Ice” - By Yolande Letshou

So yesterday we shot the cover for our up and coming issue themed "New Year, New You" at London's Butlers Wharf.
The photographer was Pete Warburton, the make-up artist was Charlotte Barry and the model was off course the stunning Sharika Wells.

One word to describe this shoot would have to be "Icy"
It was freezing cold and despite the layering my toes still froze :(
But in return the shots were fantastic and well worth freezing my butt off for :)

The team worked really well together and Charlotte Barry’s expertise touch really enabled us to achieve the looks we wanted from the shoot.

Don't forget to read our tips on how to achieve Sharika's Look using a fantastic range of Mary Kay cosmetics!

Pete was a patient and down to earth photographer really getting down and into the shoot. Last but not least I have to congratulate our amazing model, Sharika Wells, for braving it in the cold. She looked absolutely stunning and we often had to wonder whether she was actually feeling the cold as she held it together really well J

Bargain Hunters be prepared...

By Yolande Letshou

It all started on Saturday evening...

I was getting ready for a night out to a close friend's Birthday Party when my Stunning friend Mary turnt up at my house - dead on time!!

As I opened the door I was immediately wowed by her amazing dress. The dress was gorgeous and looking a million pounds. With excitement I asked her where it was purchased so I could bag myself one. The answer was a mere "ASOS"- (As Seen On Screen)

What was even more pleasantly shocking was the price she paid for it. It only cost her £6 in their clearance range- What a Bargain!!

That was it for me I was determined to buy one even if I never get a chance to wear it, like most my clothes in my 3 ridiculously cramped wardrobes.

So today was the perfect day to take a break and browse the wonderful goodies on the ASOS website.

I selected the below fabulous clearance goodies as the top bargains in this range!- all for £5

Enjoy :)

WAS £25.00 NOW £5.00
Halterneck dress with side split detail

£5 - Retro print Shirt - Scroll down for more £5 Goodies :)
