In just three days the Kardashian Kollection will be available to buy from Lipsy but until then you can check out the pieces and start planning on what you're going to buy!
It is exactly what you would expect from the three glamorous sisters; a great deal of black, splashes of colour, a dash of sparkle and some leather staples.
Lipsy have always been a go-to for the party girl and the perfect place to pick up an outfit for a night out or a special dress for a Christmas party so of course the Kardashian ladies are the ideal choice. They have most certainly hit the nail on the head, check out my fav garments below:
I love the sequin jacket as it will glam up any ensemble; pair with a camisole, jeans and heels or throw over a simple black mini dress.
This leather mini is great as it can be worn for day or night and you could even wear it work with a shirt and pumps or with flats and a tee for laid-back cool.
The lace jump-suit speaks for itself, it is a show-stopper for sure and when Kourtney was photographed in it recently she turned everybody's heads.
Nothing says Kardashian quite like an eye-catching body-con and this printed blue number is to-die for, I love the quirky graphics and the mix of bright blue shades.
This feather jacket is amazing! I love the colour with the dashes of deep green, I am a massive fan of fur coats but I definitely think that feather coats are the way to go.
Finally Khloe rocks this faux-leather black dress so well and I cannot express how much I adore it, its such a flattering shape and I can tell that PU dresses are here to stay.
This collection if all over the internet but you can check it out here. As with all Lipsy pieces prices vary from £50-£150, high end high street.
So ,what do you adore from this collection?

Revisit your childhood with cute and quirky jewellery By Emily
Emily Sidwell was born and raised in England and takes inspiration from her childhood to create jewellery that has heart, soul and a lot of love.
Having studied Fine Art at university and graduated in 2008 Emily Sidwell, the creative mind behind By Emily, travelled around the world for a year before settling down in London and starting up her own business. Now in 2013 By Emily is available online and is receiving rave reviews from everybody who has managed to snatch themselves up a charming piece of delightful jewellery.
Made by hand in her studio at home, the By Emily collection comes together by the use of the lost wax casting process, following this each piece is then cast into the desired metal to create a one-off sentiment. Although the designs may be the same the fact that Emily sculpts and moulds every individual article herself means that each differentiates in one way or another, all of them stamped with the mark of Emily.
As Emily invites you to recall your childhood experiences you are also invited into hers, the wonderful thing about By Emily is the intimacy of the brand, you can see all of the memories injected into each piece of jewellery and it’s hard not to fall in love.

Mariah Carey and O.P.I; The Holiday Nail Collection
The Queen of glitter partners up with the ultimate nail polish company to creatively a perfectly festive collection of shimmering paint to make your fingers suitably stylish for the coming Christmas season.
World-class diva Mariah Carey is known for many things her stunning vocal range, her demanding diva behaviour, her love for all things glamour and of course that Christmas song. So who better to create a range of festive nail lacquers for us all to fall in love then the songstress herself? Teaming up with Californian Nail Company O.P.I Mariah Carey has designed eighteen delightfully Christmassy pots of colour that will have you feeling jolly and festive in no time. Famed for working with celebrities and being inspired by popular culture, O.P.I clearly understands how much everybody adores Mariah Carey’s iconic Christmas album and her classic songs remind us all of the season (and the reason) to be jolly.
The eighteen piece set is a visually stunning collection of reds, metallic, shimmers and sparkles. Stand out shades include ‘In My Santa Suit’ a metallic berry as well ‘Visions of Love’ which is a dark seductive burgundy, ‘I Snow You Love Me’ a scattered silver sparkle that looks just like tiny holographic snowflakes and also ‘All Sparkly And Gold,’ which is exactly as it says on the label, a party read gold.
There are also six ‘Liquid Sand’ varnishes in a sparkling cobalt blue, off black, gunmetal silver, pearly peach, shimmery champagne and frosty silver. These six bottles are created with the latest technology so that a topcoat isn’t required; they have a textured, matte finish to offer an edgy style that differentiates from the normal nail polishes.
O.P.I consistently makes top-notch nail varnishes with long lasting colour, shine and sparkle so this selection of jolly shades will, hopefully, follow in the same path.
Available next month for around £6, Mariah Carey’s enchanting O.P.I polishes will be online for all to buy either as a cheeky Christmas treat for yourself, a little stocking filler or even as a Secret Santa gift for that glamour puss colleague you were struggling with!

Are you madly in love with thsi collection as much as I am? I have so much love for the 'Batty for Pandora' clutch as well as the 'Trick of Treat' pumps and 'Midnight Dolly' platforms. What do you have your eye on?
As with all Charlotte Olympia pieces the price vary but are around £400-£1000 totally worth it for a piece of Halloween fashion that will still work once the haunting season is over. If only I had £1000......

I think when it comes to Bellatrix's costume the first place to check out is ebay or charity shops. Her ensemble is, of course, all black with rips, tears and is totally falling apart-reflecting the insane, sinful character that she is.
Many fancy dress sites stock her costume for about £25-£50 but I often think a home-made one is much cooler!
You need a black gypsy skirt which is full length, a black corset, a black long-sleeved top and some black shoe laces or black ribbon, if you're up for some sewing grab some black lace too in order to create a skirt overlay. Simply cut the sleeves of the top and intertwine the laces then re-attach to the shoulder, you can also cut along the seam down the arm and do the same.
Hair, Face & Nails
Bellatrix has one crazy-ass hairstyle going on, curling tongs are required with some serious back-combing and a spray of white hair colour to showcase the greying in Bellatrixs' hair.
Make-up is key here, Bellatrix has dark eyes both in colour and surrounding, defined cheekbones
Make-up wise you need a pale foundation, a mix of brown shadows that can be used for contouring as well as darkening around the eyes and this affordable eye-shadow palette By Little Mix is perfect to create the dark, sallow look of Bellatrix. I have even found an awesome tutorial online by Michelle Phan, check it out here
As for her nails, all you need is a bit of chipped nail polish and to dirty them up to create the grubby, disheveled Bellatrix Lestrange look.
