Loving right now - Red

Lately I've been really loving the colour red, but worn only in small accents to brighten up an outfit whether in the form of jewellery, nail polish or a great lip. Or all at once! Here are 3 of my favourites right now.

On my lips: MAC Impassioned lipstick.
While technically it's not a red, the warm watermelon shade is perfect to satisfy my red cravings. It's my absolute favourite lipstick of all time, and I've blogged about it a lot in the past.

On my nails: Sally Hansen Insta Dri in Sonic Bloom.
This is like Impassioned in a bottle. It's a bright watermelon red shade that dries in no time at all (I wouldn't say instant, but 5 minutes tops for a single coat) is fully opaque in a single thick coat and lasts about 4 days on my nails without chipping.

On my neck: Red bib necklace by Colette Accessories.
I'm a huge fan of Colette as they have the latest trends in accessories but at a tiny price. This fabulous bib necklace was only $16.95. I was hoping to get it in another colour too but red seems to be all they had in this style. Potential DIY maybe? {edit note: I've since found out this is a knockoff of the JCrew Bubble necklace, and guess what? I've found different colours on ebay which I'll be getting soon! Thanks for the heads up Natalie!}

    1. I refuse to acknowledge that summer is over, and red still lets me hang on to the warmer weather.

  5. The necklace is a rip-off for the J.Crew Bubble necklace - run that as a search through eBay and you'll bring up heaps in other colours for under $30. I have a black but the turquiose is nice too.

  6. These lipstick and nail polish shades are pretty. I love Insta Dri nail polishes - they dry quickly and one coat will do!

  11. I can wear bright orange backed reds to bring out my eyes, but anything too "cold" makes me look pastier.
