Beauxoxo At The Stables Behind The Scenes Autumn Winter 2016

So yesterday what you can see in the photos above actually happened! Yes that's right: I had a photoshoot at a Stables. Context?! For months and months now I have been daydreaming about the possibility of having horses in a photoshoot. I spotted some a advert in Teen Vogue with Kendall and Kylie Jenner and a collection they modelled for Pacsun. It just looked stunning and I immediately thought how amazing it would be to create something like this with my hair accessories, and in particular something as rich as opulent as my velvet turban headbands.

I knew the perfect team for this would be Laura, Naomi and Kaja because I really wanted that gorgeous boho look they do oh-so-well. For the make up, I was really inspired by Anna Sui Autumn/Winter 2015-2016 show because I just adore the 70s bohemian element Anna brings to her collection, and this sort of look is so beautiful on Laura.

We all headed to The Stables together in the heart of the Dorset countryside. Our horse was so gentle, so sweet and the perfect second model! Our helper even placed a flower crown on him!! At first he seemed a little confused as to what was going on, and the reflector was certainly something totally new to him, but soon enough he became so intrigued with it all! Laura was an absolute star with him and we were kindly helped along with the staff at Stables.

I cannot wait to see the outcome and a huge thank you and beyond to my dreamiest team who go along with my zany thoughts and who make my ideas come to life. I’m so lucky to meet and work with people as wonderful, talented, creative and just darn kind as Laura, Naomi and Kaja.

A huge thanks to the Rushall Park Riding Stables in Dorset for having us and helping my idea become a reality!

REVIEW: Fairydrops Scandal Queen Mascara

The Fairydrops Scandal Queen Mascara is something that has been on my wish-list for the longest time, and in fact almost a year, as I read a review on the wonderful Vivianna Does Make Up back in August with a post titled 'The Cutest Mascara Ever'. I had to know more.

But as it turns out, Fairydrops Scandal Mascara is still the buzz of the beauty and mascara world right now and it all started in Japan. I adore Japanese fashion, art and culture and the Japanese cosmetic world is something I've been longing to try. The story of Fairydrops mascara leads back to Japanese celebrity Aya Yasuda who realised that to create a strong impression on TV, she needed to make her eyelashes stand out. After much experimentation, Aya realised it was the long, upward slopping alluring kind of eyelashes that made such a beautiful impact on our screens.

After months of research and experimenting, Aya's 3-teardrop wand, 'Fairydrops' was born. The wand aimed to catch and lift even the shortest of eyelashes, giving Aya the big, doll like, photogenic eyes that she dreamed of for so long. The results were stunning, and Aya knew she had to share her new secret mascara with other women back in Japan. And now Fairydrops Mascara is not only one of the bestselling mascaras in Japan, but it's also incredibly sought after throughout Asia, and it's becoming pretty loved here too!

But just what is this '3-teadrop wand' all about? Basically it is created with three curves to firstly fit the lashes and secondly,  to deposit mascara and lift lashes in all the right places for maximum volume. I found this a little tricky to get my head around at first, but if you use the outer edge of the first bobble, this will create gorgeous defined top and lower lashes without the smudge.

'Fairydrops' mascara formula is also enriched with five different treatment essences to improve lash condition which are: 1. Squalene, 2. Jojoba seed oil, 3. Panthenol, 4. Hydrolised Collagen and 5 is that that one moisturising ingredient you see everywhere: Hyaluronic Acid. These luscious essences are then added to fibres that build volume and length in your lashes whilst film-forming polymers create clump-free, defined, beautiful lashes that hold all day long.

This is a mascara with a LOT going on and so it's easy to see why it's just so, so good. It really packs in everything you could possibly want from a mascara and therefore I too, like many, do proclaim it as one of my favourite mascaras ever as well! It just makes my lashes look so doll like and fluttery and I have been asked a lot what I've been wearing which doesn't often happen with mascara. Plus, I love the conditioning elements so it's almost as if you're are getting double for your money. And the money being the only downside as this mascara will set you back £18.50 which is at least what I paid on Beautymart. Is it worth it? Well, considering it out performs other high end mascaras I've paid for at a similar price I'd say it definitely is.

My one and only problem with it was the fact it is quite 'wet' at first, and it takes a little while to get used to the wand, but if you use it correctly, as it was intended, it just gives such a gorgeous look.

Has anyone used Fairydrops mascara? This has definitely furthered my need and desire to try a lot more Japanese cosmetics. To purchase it from UK click here to get it from Beautymart  but for more brand information, do visit Fairy drop's own cutest website. What mascara do you love right now?
