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.

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 »
