For spring 2016, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana spoke to the tourist in all of us. They set up the show with four large screens hung above the audience displaying one word: “Selfie.” As the show began, the screens read, “The models walking the fashion show will be taking selfies with you, which will be published online. Be part of this unique fashion moment!”
The collection entitled “Italia is love”, presented a 1950s picture-postcard view of Italy over a very 90’s looks. Places included Amalfi, Capri, Portofino, Taormina and of course Rome!
My Instagram feed was full of the pictures from the models and DG, I loved the whole idea and the collection is so fun and colourful.

Here are some real easy makeup tips to add your routine, or to help you cut down your routine in summer.
In the summer months I only use a few products because wearing too much makeup in summer is just a bad idea. I also like to limit the amount of products so I’m not spending all day painting my face.
Start with SPF protection. Its summer, its sunny! I normally buy a BB or foundation with coverage however in summer I use a dedicated SPF cream because it’s much more sunnier and I find that I sit in the sun more often. I’m using SunSense Daily Face SPF 50+
Using a BB Cream or Tinted Moisturizer is a quick & easy way to even out your skintone and its not to heavy. I’m currently using Garnier Miracle Skin Cream Day cream
Mineral powder over the top of your tinted moisturizer or BB cream will smooth out imperfections & cut back redness, giving your skin a beautiful satiny finish and set your “makeup”. I’m using Nude by Nature Natural Mineral Cover
Blusher is an instant face brightener, it warms the face. I’m using MAC pro longwear blush in Blush all day
In summer a long wearing eyeliner is always a good idea, I use the Maybelline eyestudio master precise ink pen eyeliner. It has a really thin tip that I use to build up my look depending on how I feel that day
When applying mascara take care to layer it on to the lashes while they are still wet to avoid ‘clumping’. I’m currently using Maybelline Lash Sensational Black Pearl Waterproof. I like using waterproof in summer because you never know when I might drop by the beach or end up just sweating up a storm.
Light to medium lipsticks are the most flattering, as bright colours exaggerate imperfections like yellow teeth & lines round the mouth. But Red lipstick stick can add that touch of glamour to your look. Remember to use a lip liner to prevent bleeding. I’m currently using Rimmel Dare to go bare! New Nude collection from Kate Moss in 42

Sometimes you should have cleaned your place weeks ago but you still haven’t and now you’re living in your own filth. I know I have a habit of just throwing my clothes all over the floor and when I’m going out and rushing around my beauty products are everywhere. So here are some tips and tricks to fake it.
Things to focus on are bathrooms and lounge area.
Stuff of the floor?
Shove it in a basket, once your guests leave, you can empty that basket right back on the floor.
Stuff on tables/counters?
Books and magazines can be stacked they look cuter this way. Everything else put them in a basket or bag, you can empty that basket right back once they leave.
If you have dishwasher LOAD IT. If not, neatly stack your dishes and stash it all in the refrigerator or oven.
Wipe down sink and mirrors, top and underside of the toilet seat, the flusher button, and the top of the tank. Clean your toilet by spraying it, let it sit, brush it then flush it. Finally put out fresh towels
Finally my favourite trick:
Light a candle
A candle does many things. It makes your house smell amazing and it mask all the dirty musky smells, and it gives your home a feeling that it always smells this nice.
Air wick life scents jar candle in winter moments
If all fails start vacuuming before they come and just apologise that the house is a mess and you were just cleaning it
I’ve been there its 5am, it’s been a long night of dancing and drinking. All you want to do now is just lie down and count sheep. We all know that sleeping in makeup is bad for your skin. Yet we all keep doing it but NO we must stop!
Sleeping in makeup is one of the worst things you can do to your skin! It blocks your pores, leaving oils trapped inside. Which guess what ladies…. leads to bacteria build up, breakouts, and enlarged pores!!! Not only that it can cause aging ladies…. aging!!
So next you plan on skipping your skincare routine before bedtime think again.
If you know your gonna have a big one prepare yourself for your lazy self, put makeup wipes/remover and at least a good moisturizer by your bed. So you can at least remove the makeup in bed and do a little skin loving.
The best makeup remover you can use is micellar water. It removes all traces of make-up – even eyeliner and mascara. To get the most out of your micellar water, squirt a generous amount on a soft cotton pad and wipe your face repeatedly until your skin is clean and clear of any traces of dirt and make-up.
