Kylie Jenner Lip Kit: Colour Inpiration & Where To Buy

'Been dreaming of this day for two years now'- Kylie Jenner
Kylie Jenner Lip Kit
It's her lips that made her the present day beauty icon and now Kylie Jenner is capitalizing on the hysteria her pout has caused. After years in the making, Kylie has unveiled a new matte lip kit range featuring a lip-liner and it now has it's own Instagram page which has already nabbed more likes than we could possibly imagine- And I have to say that this is a rare celebrity make-up launch that I am genuinely excited about! She may only be 18 and already admitted to having fillers, but her make-up skills are undeniable. You can tell she has a true gift for the make-up in the form of artistry and would understand the need to put her all into one of the most highly anticipated beauty products of the year. Young girls look up to her and adults are in awe of her. We want to nab tips and tricks from her without the horrors of the #KylieJennerLipChallenge and her new range of lip kits are a perfect safe alternative. 

Kylie teased fans with a sneak peak or her lip kits 24 hours prior on Instagram and now they are available to buy at in the signature Kylie shades-True Brown K, Dolce K, Candy K.

GRANDMA Film Screening Starring Lily Tomlin, Julia Garner & Marcia Gay Harden

'What's he gonna say, 'Sage's grandma beat me up?'- Elle Reid
Grandma Lily Tomlin
Set to release on December 11th in the UK, 'Grandma' is one of those films that takes you by surprise. I was invited along to a special screening at Sony Pictures Europe where all I knew about the film was that it featured a stellar female line-up. Essentially, the film is a simple one day tale of a fragile soft spoken teen Sage (Julia Garner) who turns up at her grandmothers house Elle Reid (Lily Tomlin) in search of $630 to abort an unwanted pregnancy. Elle by no means is the typical cookie baking, knitting grandmother. In fact she is a sarcastic, impulsive, once successful poet who's just broken up with her much younger girlfriend Olivia (Judy Greer). Weakened by her granddaughter's cries for financial help and not having the ability to donate herself, they set off on a journey to gather cash from old friends and former flames, causing turbulence and spilling secrets along the way.

Golddigga AW15 Press Day with Brand Ambassador Ashley Roberts

'Every young woman wants a collection of clothes that are versatile and express the different aspects of her personality. This collection gives her the opportunity to be whoever she wants to be.'- Ashley Roberts
Golddigga, a brand I am incredibly familiar held a press day for their Autumm/Winter collection last night where former Pussycat Doll Ashley Roberts stepped out in full force as their brand ambassador. Roberts, let me tell you fits the brand like a glove. Golddigga holds an ethos of being edgy, unique and individual and Ashley more than parallels that. She also stars in their A/W15 #girlsnightin photo shoot where she looks stunning wearing pieces such as a faux fur trimmed coat and 60's printed monochrome co-ord.

Who Should Kylie Jenner Date Next?

'Ten years from now-in 2025-I hope I have a kid.'- Kylie Jenner
Kylie Jenner Tyga
It only seemed like yesterday when Kylie Jenner hit 18 and suddenly had Tyga by her side day and night, proving truth to the months of 'are they, are they not dating' rumours. But now the pair have split. That to on Tyga's 26th birthday. It seems like Kylie's monumental interest and residence in the spotlight seems to have gotten too much for Tyga who has been blamed for the separation due to his interest in other girls. But let's face it...this was bound to happen. Let me remind you- Kylie Jenner is eighteen. She is still so so young. This is her time to have fun (and she sure is judging by her social media posts) but she doesn't need to be tied down to someone. There are plenty of young hot options out there who would still allow her to chase those dreams of hers. After all, she does have the world at her feet. Let's take a look at her best suitors!

American Music Awards 2015 Red Carpet

'Tonight's the night!'- Selena Gomez

Ahh nothing like a fashion-filled, beauty enduced, diamond encrusted red carpet! And this time it was  all about the American Music Awards. The event which took place from LA's Microsoft Theatre featured an epic display of performers such as Gwen Stefani, Ariana Grande and Carrie Underwood. It's like everyone's idea of the American Dream- The country which gives birth to a lot of fantastic musicians and performers and welcomes international talent to hone their skills for world domination. As always before I start my tribute to the best dressed of the night and my mood boards for months to come, I want to say a huge congratulations to the winners and nominees of the night. They are at the peak of what millions across the world dream of. These are the people who have unlocked the secret formula and hopefully will inspire many more to crack the code.

Kardashian & Jenner Beauty Regime: Products They Swear By

'I have so many friends who don’t wear make-up and hardly ever do their hair. I feel really blessed because I genuinely love the process of getting my hair and make-up done.'- Kim Kardashian
A slightly 'crazy' family who's life we started chronicling in 2007 has now turned into a multi-million dollar empire. The Kardashian sisters were quick to churn out their 'brand' with numerous business, appearance and television deals under the ever-changing culture of Hollywood. Whilst the '15 minutes of fame' category applies to most who try to make it, these sisters have raked in that staying power- which has notoriously not sat well with many. And let's not forget the Kardashian's once baby-faced half sisters, Kendall and Kylie who have managed to pursue their own versions of fame to dizzying heights- playing hand in hand with society's nosy curiosity of growing up in the limelight. Needless to say, love them or hate, you have most definitely heard of them. With their stunning make-up looks and picture perfect skincare you can bet there would be many companies endlessly attempting to market their products to them to promote. However, over the years there are a few products that each sister has tried and now swear by. If you're willing to spend a little extra, let me introduce to you the Kardashian and Jenner's favoruite skincare products!

Friday the 13th Special: 2015's #AllBlackEverything Red Carpet Looks

"I love black because it affirms, designs and styles. A woman in a black dress is a pencil stroke." — Yves Saint Laurent
 Witness Ruby Rose above at the EMA's this year. How stunning does she look?! The all black outfit signals the start of an incredible eye for fashion and talent,. Topped up with those tattoos- it solidifies the current social media trend of #allblackeverything. However this morbidly stunning trend doesn't come without its critiques. Abercrombie & Fitch reportedly banned employees from wearing it in stores *never working there* and Anna Wintour hates it. Erm yikes. But the likes of Coco Chanel, Johnny Cash and everyone's favourite alter-ego Wednesday Addams can't be wrong. Sure for me the 'slimming trick' is great and a bonus, but I feel put together, unique, comfortable and on-trend wearing black. The following celebrities have also given into this deathly yet demure expression of fashion and nailed it on the red carpet this year. Killing it...

Blogosphere Magazine x Samantha Maria Issue 7 Launch Party‏

'I can't believe how surreal it feels to be the face of a magazine, I feel overwhelmingly thankful for the support of my readers and viewers, as without you all it wouldn't be possible.'- Samantha Maria
It seems odd that in today's day and age of digital success, I would be championing a print magazine. Enter Blogosphere Magazine- a high quality print magazine written by bloggers for those foraying or showing an interest in the world of social media which culminated last night in a stunning Issue 7 Launch Party at Motel Studios, Hoxton. Sure, many would be hesitant to spend money on information they could very easily find on the internet, but Blogosphere holds an element of substance that goes further than the 'read & bin it' culture of traditional magazines. Reading it, I am informed, my interests are held 100% and my blogging opportunities seem heightened with what I have read. Needless to say, this magazine will be a coffee table fixture, holding the notion of a 'collectors item'.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 London Premiere

'It would be impossible to go four years with this character Katniss and not be inspired by her.'- Jennifer Lawrence
Jennifer Lawrence The Hunger Games
 Oh imagine what it would be like to be Jennifer Lawrence right now! Or any of The Hunger Games cast for that matter. This successful franchise has been at the forefront of popular culture and has catapulted the careers of its stars. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 brings this film series based on Suzanne Collins' mighty novels to an end, which many of its crazed fans will not be taking lightly. Jennifer Lawrence made sure to bow out in style last night at the London premiere with her gorgeous Dior gown and talked extensively about what an honour it was to play Katniss. The rest of the cast looked equally red-carpet ready (hello Chris Hemsworth!) whilst enjoying their years of hard work, friendship and dedication to the series. It'll be fascinating to see how they use their experience and fame from The Hunger Game series to mould their future careers- However, I'm pretty sure it'll be nothing short of award-winning. In the meantime, let's enjoy the moment and fawn over the pictures from the London premiere.

MOBO Awards 2015: Winners, Fashion & Performances

'Tonight was special.'- Rita Ora
Rita Ora
The 2015 MOBOs were held in Leeds last night and music's hottest new faces came out to play. Dominating the event were Rita Ora, Elle Eyre (who racked up a win for Best Female) and FKA Twigs. The girls put on a show in terms of fashion and also with their fierce designer gear on the red carpet. Speaking of the red carpet, I have to give it to the men of the night who I think slightly upstaged the women in terms of looking good! Well done boys! All in all the night was an incredible celebration of rising and cemented ethnic talent. Equality is key in creativity and that showed at the MOBOs!

Victoria's Secret Fashion Show 2015: Model Line-Up

'Victoria's Secret's newest recruits. Oh and I get to do it with my best friend Gigi."- Kendall Jenner

The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show is a spectacle each year. The beauties, the themes, the bikinis- topped off with the incredible performers. It's the hottest ticket in town. The show which is being taped this year on the 9th and 10th of November (airing on Dec 8th), will also feature two of the hottest new rising supermodels- Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner. The people over at Victoria's Secrets sure know how to rake in the #kerching. Nonetheless, for a model to earn her wings is no easy feat. You need that something special, the charisma, the spark along with the flawless features and toned body. There is something about an Angel which is unattainable to us mere mortals- And for this occasion that's perfectly fine. However, for some models it takes years of hard work to bag this job role, because after all walking in the Victoria's Secrets Fashion Show is the ultimate dream. It transports you from a model drowning in a sea of beautiful faces to celebrity stardom. Women such as Adriana Lima and Alessandra Ambrosio who have walked this particular catwalk for years have built mega-fortunes. Needless to say it'll be the same for the fresh tidal wave of beauties. I mean, just look below at this years gorgeous line-up. Easy on the eye, eh?

The 'Emoji': History and Inspiration

'Stay hungry. Stay foolish.'- Steve Jobs 
Emojis History
It's interesting to see the categorical rise of the 'emoji' and the way in which we use them to communicate with each other. Needless to say, such endearing forms of expression has been traced back to nineties Japan, where the emoji was initially given birth at a Japanese research facility. This was after mobile phone companies noticed people were using pictures as a way to communicate more often and needed to support the needs of 80million technology users. The solution? Emojis! Users were quick to embrace the 'emoji' as regular word text messages took up way more characters than an emoji which took up a single one. It was then when Steve Jobs visited Japan to promote the iPhone and check out the Japanese cellphone market that he realized the iPhone was missing a crucial photo element feature. He made a deal with a company called Softbank to get a piece of their financially successful 'emoji' market. And boy did it pay off!

Best Celebrity Halloween Costumes 2015

Yes, I'm committed to Halloween- Emily Ratajkowski

There was an article in the Daily Mail about the carnage associated with Halloween this past weekend. Pictures engraved in the content depicted hundreds of people- male, female, young, old, running riot on the streets of the UK dressed up in their ghoulish alter-egos. Many had drunk themselves to shreds and others had been arrested due to altercations- however it did seem to depict a completely different type of make-believe society, where all we wanted to do was be someone else for one night. It looked like a scene from the classic film Halloweentown (childhood memory alert!). And whilst Hallows' Eve (which traditionally stemmed from the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain where people would light bonfires and wear costumes to spook off roaming ghosts) isn't everyone's cup of tea, it acquires a certain enigmatic presence that ironically brings the notion of happiness and togetherness within our society today.
