We Heart Paul’s Boutique

On 25/07/2014 by Bonafide Supernova

Recently Paul’s Boutique London have had an insanely good re-brand, if I’m honest I was not a fan of Paul’s Boutique in school and I have never owned anything from Paul’s Boutique until now. The brand has recently updated their look, it’s super chic, a little more simplistic and as always still very high quality.



I’m currently lusting over the new collection. I was lucky enough to have the team send me this bag to review.

We ladies carry handbags everyday, they go through a lot with us, from work and play so it’s important to have a bag that adds to your outfit, goes with pretty much everything, and most importantly is really good quality, as it’s got to stay in shape, come rain or shine.

My advice when buying handbags is to ditch the over shopping and invest in a few key pieces. You will get more value for your money if you spend a little more, it won’t make sense to keep buying cheap handbags, if you have to keep re-buying them.


My bag is called Natasha Neutral Neon Yellow, in blue and you can purchase one at http://www.pauls-boutique.com/ for £70.

This statement tote has been revamped for HS14, with powder blue tones and hint of neon yellow making it the ultimate piece of arm candy for the summer season. It looks really expensive and I often get admiring glances, followed by “I love your bag!” compliments, whenever I wear it.

I styled my bag with:

ASOS pastel blue coat £70
Warehouse Fluro Jacquard Dress £85
Boohoo Silver Pointed Heels £25

Thanks to Paul’s Boutique for my bag – I adore it!

TOWIE megababe Lauren Pope will be kick starting the celebrations in style, to mark the launch of hot new designer shoe hire boutique, Cindys Choos, at Westfields in Stratford.

On Thursday, July 31st Cindy Choos will officially open their pop up shop as well as going live with an online boutique hiring out shoes from the likes of Christian Louboutin, Jimmy Choo, Manolo Blahnik, Gina, Charlotte Olympia and Giuseppe Zanotti.



Lauren Pope will be Djing and meeting and greeting to celebrate the launch of the Cindys Choos which is sure to be a hit with those who want A -Lister style but don’t have the budget to match.

Whether it’s a party, a prom, a wedding or just a fancy day at the office, with Cindys Choos, women can make a killer entrance in some killer heels from as little as £65 for the weekend and £85.99 for the week.

The designer shoe hire service will also be available online at www.CindysChoos.com from 31st July. All the styles are from current seasons, they’re brand new and delivery is made via private courier. In addition to the fashion focused range, they will also have a special Bridal collection. Each pair is hired out for a maximum of four times before then being sold on in a private sale with clients.

The pop up store promises to be a perfect slice of pampering heaven. As well as renting designer shoes , Cindys Choos will offer a beauty bar which will be managed by Buster Knight and Joel Benjamin who are both celebrity hair and makeup artists.


You can then buy an outfit from your fave shop, head to Cindys Choos, pick a pair of shoes to match your dress, use their changing rooms and get the ultimate makeover by the celebrity make- up artists.


And if that wasn’t enough to get your glamo-metre off the scale; a concierge can book you an Uber taxi to take you to your event; and if you don’t have any plans they will recommend events, restaurants and other activities taking place in London that night!

The shoe hire service is the brainchild of, 24-year-old Cindy?? (add surname), a former city financier. As a self-confessed designer shoe addict, Cindy initially rented shoes to celebrities such as Kelly Rowland while she was a judge on the X Factor. She also rented shoes for photoshoots and for countless stars.
Cindy said: “I’ve always wanted to make fashion affordable for every day women like me.”

Looks like it’s going to be fun!

Fight the shine this summer!

On 19/07/2014 by Bonafide Supernova

With all the lovely weather we have been having this summer, wearing makeup may not always be an option. Many of us find that our makeup gets very shiny; producing too much oil, and the
powders that we are using in our makeup routine just isn’t working to battle the shine. With temperatures this summer being scorching hot in Britain I wanted to find a powder that does the job keeping my makeup intact all day without feeling like my face is melting.

Fashion Fair kindly sent me their oil control loose and pressed powder in sugar. I have previously used Fashion Fair products so didn’t expect to be disappointed. Fashion Fair is well known as one of the leading brands for women of colour. The oil control is made up of fine powder which mattes the skin and sets makeup for the whole day.

After using this product for two weeks I can honestly say that it does the trick. No need to go without makeup ladies. After applying foundation, apply the oil control powder with a powder brush to get your matte finish without it looking cakey. The oil control powder by Fashion Fair is formulated in order to reduce shine by absorbing excess oils and helps to minimise the appearance of pores on the skin. The perfect formula for these summer months.

Sugar is a sheer silky translucent powder that sets foundation in an instant, leaving no grey colour to the skin for my complexion. I generally have oily skin so it was good to see how well Fashion Fair powder could work with my skin type. I was surprised to say in the last couple of days where the weather has hit numbers like 28 degrees and more that my makeup stayed in place, and to my surprise I only needed to blot my nose again by late afternoon/ early evening.

I usually have a battle with shine on my whole tzone, so was instantly pleased that not much effort was needed to keep control of my makeup throughout the day. Sugar is the newest addition to the powder range of Fashion Fair. As you can get Fashion Fair powder and oil control powder in other shades, such as Pure Brown, Pecan, Bronze, Toffee, Amber and Golden for £23.

Fashion Fair products are available in Boots, Debenhams and Morleys throughout the UK as well as online.
