We Love Colors has the best colors and quality of tights.
All of my solid opaque colored tights come from We Love Colors

They have a wide selection of other items including their elbow length and wrist length gloves!

During this week and the following week, I will show a variety of styled outfits 
Which showcase the gloves and tights in my favorite color combinations.

For some, colors are hard to choose online, or pairing together in general, so let me do the work for you!!

Each post will include the color name on the We Love Colors  website...

At the end of 2 weeks
I will be doing a giveaway
With 2 chances to win!!!!!
The giveaway is a collaboration between We Love Colors and Fashion Forestry, 
Which means decorated elbow length gloves!!!

Korres

This is my personal Korres make-up artillery.

Along with liquid eyeliner - which Korres doesn't carry - these are my few absolute essentials.
I feel compelled to confess a couple of things though.

First, if you have been reading my blog for a while, you probably know that I'm not really a cosmetics person. I mean, half the time I leave the house completely bare-faced (today is one of those days actually), I skip the make-up section in magazines and I really find cosmetics stores claustrophobic. Hell, I never even paint my nails. All that doesn't mean I hate make-up. I just don't feel compelled to use it all the time and I treat shopping for it the exact opposite way I treat shopping for clothes and shoes, meaning I use very few things and only replace them when they run out. Generally the things I use the most are compact powder and mascara. These last couple of years, I have also taken on using blush and I have replaced eye pencil with liquid eyeliner, as I find the clean-cut cat's eyes line more appealing than the smokey effect of smudgy kohl. However, when I find a soft pencil in a shade as great as this blue petrol above, I give in.

Second, I'm sure many of you are wondering "why an all-Korres make-up bag"? Here is the part where I must admit I actually didn't pay for all these. My mum is a pharmacist and I shamelessly take advantage of that. And I know that's probably a waste of resources for a person who's not that into make-up. Life is unfair, what can I say?
