Lipstick: what’s in a name (part one)

I don’t know about you, but when I layer on my favourite red lipstick (Urban Decay’s Vice Matte in the colour "Bad Blood"), I feel like I can conquer the whole world! And rightly so! Lipstick and make-up represent a form of female empowerment and expression.

Festival Fashion: brands that will enhance your summer

Spring is here in full force and as summer approaches, shorts, tank tops, and sandals all start moving towards the front of our closets. Along with warmer weather and sunnier skies, this transition also brings about music festivals all across the globe.

A key component in all of these festivals is the fashion. Over the past few years festival fashion has grown into a staple in most women wardrobes, as not all pieces are covered in sequins and ribbons. Many pieces by themselves are easy to get away with in an everyday outfit or for just going out, while others would make you stand out in the crowd. As the demand for festival fashion has grown, many brands have surfaced, each with its own unique style and flair.
