Curl Power!

I absolutely love my new Remington wand, I purchased the my new addiction from Amazon a few weeks ago and I have been hooked ever since. I use them on a Monday for example and the curls are still noticeable by the Wednesday even after I have slept on the hair. This is a must have and definitely something you should purchase for your favorite females this Christmas. They were only £19.99 and it came with free delivery... no catch whatsoever! All you do is wrap your hair around the wand, YouTube for tutorials if you get stuck. When I first got them I burnt my hand five times at least, but they do come with gloves I was just being stubborn! lol.

Happy Shopping! x

Straight after I curled the hair with the wand

This is three days after I curled my hair and the curls dropped

My Remington wand from Amazon

My Remington wand, I'm so in LOVE

Smoke and Pout

I am so in love with smokey eyes, the way I do mine usually is quite different, after browsing through YouTube tutorials as you do lol, I came across this one below and I thought it would be interesting to do my own version with the utensils I already have at home. Unfortunately I don't have a picture of how it ended up, I will do it again in a few days and upload a picture. Have a look at the video and the utensils I used to recreate my own smokey look.

Fraulein Palette

Eye shadow brushes from H&M 

Eyeliner Gel

Topshop lip glaze and Barry M lipstick

Natural lashes or MAC lashes 

Shopping + Bargains = Happy Days! ♥

I love shopping, who doesn't? But what I love more than shopping is bargains! Any regular readers of La Bella Vita Hearts will know that I'm a mini eBay addict... YES, send me to rehab! But before you do you need to understand why. After showing a few of my closest friends my buys they too have become eBay fiends. There are some items I think are really essential to invest in, but some things, especially things that are simply current trends I leave to eBay and Vintage/Charity shops.
Have a look at some of my most treasured purchases, some from eBay, Charity shops and well known designers. ooooooo I cannot wait till my Chanel quilted bag is on this list. *tears* I've wanted this bag for four years now :(

Perfect My Bust!

Source: Alexis

Hi Guys, I was sent this message by someone who is a regular reader of my main blog La Bella Vita 9, I felt like I should dedicate a whole blog post addressing this because I have had a lot of people come up to me and ask me how do they solve a fashion problem like big boobs lol!
Having big breasts when you are someone who is really into high fashion can be tricky, take me for example; my ample bosoms are a 34F/36E (That will be the first and last time I disclose me bra size lol) and I have had times when me and my chest have had disagreements especially when it comes to me wearing fitted shirts.

But the biggest tip I can give to you hun... Work with what you have!
Always stick to your own personal style, but below I will show you ways you can make big breasts work.

Me: Rami Coco

Wear a statement necklace! Perfect because they are in trend now, my sister bought me this two years ago from Topshop and it sits on my chest and is an eye grabber as you can see. You don't need to hide your breasts, you can just team with affordable items like this to make an outfit work!
Especially since it's the holiday season, all things glitter, sequins and beaded detailing are in; perfect for us chested ladies right? Wearing embellished tops with a rounded neck cut similar to the one pictured is very ideal. All eyes will immediately be drawn to the delicate pattern.(first image)

Me: Rami Coco

When I first saw this jumpsuit from Topshop last Christmas; the first thing I could think about was how it would flatter my boobs. Mainly because it diagonally crosses and folds over the front of the jumpsuit.

Wearing things accentuate your waist line are really important, take Kenke pictured above, she has a larger chest but that is not where the main focus is, it's her waist. Whether it's dresses that come in at the waist or outfits similar to that pictured above. This trick will definitely draw attention to your waist rather than your breast. Do not wear with a tight top, because that's where your breasts will be the main focus.

Me: Rami Coco

Here I am wearing a jumpsuit from the lovely Marks and Spencer's which is so perfect, the frill detailing sits directly above my breasts, literary cutting my chest in half. Because the frills are so pretty, that's where the focus will be first and foremost. 

Hope this has helped, just remember to love your chest, plenty people have surgery to enhance them! Avoid too much cleavage because it can come across a bit tacky/page 3 especially when you have a chest like mine.
Good luck! Stick to the style you love but just make sure it suits your body before you make the big purchase.

Happy Shopping x

I bought the shoes and two other pairs!


Bikini Beach Fun?

As a lot of you may know I am travelling next summer to Miami! I would've reached that legal age of 21 so I can party and party and party loooool. I got carried away with my deep lover mr eBay lol and shopped some bikini's here they are. Now I have a lot of bosom so I'm just praying that as I loose weight my breasts decrease in size also because these bikini's are quite teeny!

Here they are:

Channel 4 Talent

I was lucky enough to get invited down to channel 4 Talent for a workshop. I took my good old mate Suzette with me. We learnt so much and built links with presenters, journalists and so forth. Very inspiring day! They bought us pizzas too ^,^ thanks channel 4!

We didn't get to take much pictures as we were tied up in talks and and workshops all day! But I urge you all to get involved. 

Rihanna Fever!

Me and my babes Jessica went to Rihannas concert on Monday the 14th of November. Can I just say how fantastic it was? We queued outside from 2pm even though the doors were opening at 6:30pm. We met some amazing people in the queue whilst we were sitting on the floor camping out side. They shared our love for Joey Essex! We stood at the very front and Rihanna touched us! She did come on very late but her performance made up for it. Because me & Jessica knew all the dances they kept putting us up on the big screen infront of those thousands of people! Lol. My friend even came to tell me at the end that he kept seeing us. Overall it was a fab night. She has a fab body! And her vocals have MOST definitely improved! She sang hits like; Umbrella, Breakin' Dishes, Unfaithful, Hate That I Love You, Cry, We Found Love, Only Girl, Skin, Man Down, Hard, California King Bed, Cheers, Disturbia, S&M and more.

Can't wait to see her next year!

I want to be in the Rihanna Navy PLEASE :D

eBay is your friend!

So I have a confession to make.... I am an eBay-a-holic! I just cant stop shopping on the thing, and the more I use it the better I get at using it. The key is be specific with your search, go through all the pages and you WILL find that amazing item, bid in the last minute. eBay is like an online market... rummage through it. 
I'm just going to quickly show you some of the things I have recently bought off there... hope I don't get you addicted.

Above: This was a bidding item, I won this fur vintage hooded jacket for £18. Check out the detailing at the bottom. I reckon I will look 10/10 if I wear this in the snow this Christmas.

Above: This brown tote bag is divine, I first saw the bag in Zara, I wanted to buy it there and then but I though 'i'll wait'... went back and it was gone :O. Then I saw my girls Alexis and Jessica with it and I must admit I was extremely jel. Lucky for me... theres EBAY! In Zara the plaited shopper was going for £79.99 but I got a similar version for £19 saving myself over £60. Happy days.

Above: I have wanted a gold crucifix necklace for a very long time (not for fashion) Now I forgot how much I got this for from eBay exactly but I know the quality piece was very affordable.  The second picture gives you an idea of how the 20" necklace sits on my neck.

Above: Vintage handbag £2.54 and casual shoes £4.99

Above: Rihanna T-Shirt I purchased for her concert, I got it for £9. When i received it I cut off the sleeves. I plan to wear it with the leather sleeveless biker jacket (in one of the pictures above) and denim shorts. I'll show you guys pictures!

Above: This jacket was on a buy it now for £29 or make a best offer, i offered £22 and it got accepted.

Above: Packet of 100 studs approx £2

Above: My jacket studded and altered.

Above: iPhone 4 case... 99p

Because I shop so much it benefits me if i'm saving at the same time. Made so much savings so now i can afford to buy more... but i wont..well i'll try not to. lol
