Trying out Nars Skin

BEAUTY
March 16 2017

Apart from the fact that the all white and minimal packaging spoke to my soul, I was quite interested to try out NARS Skincare. Being a fan of their makeup, I wanted to know if the skincare matched up. I enlisted my mum, who was also very excited to try out the products, and she and I have similar thoughts.. ~~~ The Gentle Cream Cleanser, 125ml, £21 {UK Link | INT Link} As soon as this goes on the skin it feels cool, smooth and soft. I like it cleanses very well but gently! I can use this everyday. It even… Read More »

I’ve been itching to let you all in on these amazing products I’ve fallen in love with recently! It’s summertime (although the cool and cloudy weather today is making me question this, sun better come out tomorrow) and holiday season too, and they are serving very well! ~ ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS “Sweets” Glow Kit | £30.00 (sourcing link!) ~ Oh and what a glow this kit gives!!!

My Love Affair With… La Mer

BEAUTY, Uncategorized
March 14 2016

Some time last year I mentioned my new discovery of this brand, Creme de La Mer. I was very excited to start using the products as I’d always wondered if they would be great, and with the higher price point, if they were indeed worth it. I’ve been using them for a couple of months now, and a few of their products have become staples in my beauty wardrobe. The name Creme de La Mer translates to “Cream of the Sea”, and the Miracle Broth, which I later learned, is the foundation of the brand, and is found in most… Read More »

New In

I purposely didn’t take my makeup/beauty bag along on my last trip to Paris, as I wanted to try and discover some new brands and products. I knew Sephora was on the horizon, and it’d been long since I got the chance to peruse it’s wonderful shelves! I also thought to myself “hmm..what ever I buy can remain in my travel/gym beauty bag” ..that way I don’t have to keep reaching for the stuff I’ve already laid out at home to use while getting ready. Smart huh? It now just means that my travel/gym beauty bag has more Chanel than… Read More »

 Hello lovelies! So I thought it’d be fun (and hopefully helpful) to make this video, as I’ve discovered so many tricks that have been working so well for me, right from hair styles through to bras that work perfectly with various garments! I also had a little camera play, hence the shots! 😉 My top is a gorgeous number from Reiss. It reminds me of a dress that Beyonce wore to an awards show recently… white, lace, elegant…what more could you want? I hope you enjoy the video!

Pssst! Notice anything different?? A brand new Blog Design! Woohoo! I am so excited to bring you the new Shirley’s Wardrobe. In the last months I’ve been working on making a few changes here and there, to be able to express my creativity more fluidly. Shirley’s Wardrobe as you all know has been part of my life for a very long time, and it has evolved so much since the first day it begun. It started off as an offshoot to my YouTube Channel, where I’d share little snippets of my life, photo diaries and such. Today it is recognised… Read More »

NEW LOOK Dress / H&M Rings / RIVER ISLAND Watch / BARRY M ‘Coral’ Polish How lovely it would be to have someone to photograph the many outfits I’ve been sporting recently, outside in the open! *Sigh* My siblings are so busy these days, and I haven’t had the time to take to the streets, my tripod and remote control in hand to do it myself! But one of these days I will. For the time being, I’ll film, and update the blog with indoor shots. Hope you don’t mind too much! I’ve been listening to this song by K.… Read More »

Balance Me Cleanse and Smooth Face Balm

BEAUTY
March 28 2013

I wanted to share with you a product that I’ve recently incorporated into my skin care regime. It’s the Cleanse and Smooth Face Balm by Balance me*. Now I’ve had a fair share of face balms in the past, none too worthy to mention here on the blog, but this, this is amazing. I’ll talk you through the process… I warm a small amount of the balm in my clean hands, then I gently apply it on my face and neck, massaging the balm with my finger tips in circular motions for about 30 seconds. A sweet zesty scent hits me… Read More »
