Caseapp Macbook Pro Skin Review

Personalised Macbook Pro 13" Skin - Caseapp (link)*

Caseapp are a brand that I feature fairly regularly on the blog and will be beginning to feature more of their products this upcoming year, as I now work with them as their brand ambassador. They are also a brand whose products I genuinely enjoy using and featuring/writing about, as I love how you can add your own personal touch of style to your devices such as your iPhone or Macbook and many more...

One product that I have been meaning to try out was their skins, as I have always wanted to accessorise my mac with something striking. That being said I decided to choose one of my favourite photos of the desert that I took a couple of summers back on my trip to California. I just adore how something so simple as picture can instantly bring back those joyful summertime memories, and with it being on my laptop it can act as a subtle reminder of one of my favourite places.

The lovely people over at Caseapp are also offering an exclusive 20% off discount for readers of Style Peaches, just type in PEACHES20CA to enjoy!

Leopard Print Coat

I spied this leopard print coat whilst browsing through the sale section on the ASOS website and completely fell for its 70s rocker vibe and faux-fur texture. A leopard print coat has been one of those items which I have been forever lusting over owning, so when I saw this one was a mere £29.99 I couldn't quite believe my luck, especially as the last size left was mine >_<

I also managed to score this (gorgeous) pastel pink bag in the sale too from a visit to my local New Look for only £6.50, it reminds of something that Charlotte Simone *faux-fur accessory queen* would design, and for that price how could I not resist.

Wardrobe Staples

A classic "I don't know what to wear so I'm going to just wear all black" kinda outfit today, as sometimes you cannot help but wear the wardrobe basics that you adore-a la band tee, black skirt and that trusty bomber jacket. It is also one of those outfits that remind me of my somewhat indecisive "ootd moments" with wanting to wear both a roll neck and band tee at once, so what better way to do so then by layering them on top of each other. In fact I am quite surprised with how well it turned out, if I do say so myself. Needless to say you can definitely expect some more roll neck layered under *enter band name* tee's outfits to come, subsequently turning up the 90s aesthetic a notch.

The Craft Inspired Make-Up Look


The Craft has been one of those films which I become immediately captivated with, from the intriguing and thrilling story line to the "witchy/coven" aesthetic. One character in particular whose style I love is Nancy Downs. There is just something about her slightly paranoia personality that you are instantly drawn to and her iconic make-up and style has been the inspiration behind todays blog post. The make-up look I have created is by no means an exactly replica of Nancy's, but in fact my interoperation taking notes from key elements of the look-smoky eyes and dark lips, to form something that suits my personal style.
Nancy Downs eye make-up is based on a very dark smokey eye-using black eyeshadow as I wanted to make this more of a 'wearable' look I took it down a shade by opting for browns and taupes. I first begin by applying the lightest shade from the palette all over the lid, as a base colour and to block out an uneven skin tones along my lid. I then began to apply the taupe brown shade all of my lid and begin to intensify the colour along the crease. To define the eye further I take the darkest brown colour (which also doubles up as a brow powder) and apply it my crease blending it slightly out towards the outer corner of my eye. I also added a light dusting of the "Champagne Pink" shade by adding it to the centre of my eye and blending the colour outwards, for a subtle hint of shimmer. 

As I wanted to keep the lips as the statement look for the make-up I skipped eyeliner (which coming from an eyeliner addict was a strange step to take) and went in with lashings of mascara. 
Now onto the lips, for this berry inspired colour I used two products to create this. I first lined my lips with the KIKO Lipliner in "515" which is becoming a new favourite lipliner of mine due to its intense pigmentation and striking deep berry colour, as well as how its incredibly smooth to apply. I then added the Max Factor Lipfinity in "17 Always Elegant" to the centre of my lips for subtle ombre effect, which again is an amazing lip product that is extremely pigmented and easy to apply. 
So there you have it my take on one of my favourite characters make-up look.

Lilac Skies

This jumper feels like I'm channeling my inner "Kawaii-self" thanks to its lilac shade and Japanese cartoon inspired cloud print. In fact a lovely friend gave me hers after receiving two by mistake in a recent OASAP order. I just love how girly it is and how the jumper injects a shade of pastel colour to my outfit, which is normally along the lines of all black/"gothic". For todays I look I wanted to add a harsh contrast to the jumper, both colour and fabric wise, with that in mind I opted for a pair of my ripped high waisted Mom Jeans from Boohoo to pair with the jumper. Keeping along the "harsh contrast" feel I also paired the jeans with a pair of my beloved Dr. Martens which I think I have managed to *finally* break in. For those of you who have ever owned a pair of DM's know exactly what I mean when I say that your feet will have to suffer for a couple of months before the pleasure of wearing them kicks in...Needless to say I've binned the plasters and embracing the DM's.
