Beauty: Demi Lovato Launches Skincare range

Devonne by Demi
Demi Lovato has always been a promoter for looking after you, both on the inside and the outside, now she is here to help you “Express your best, most beautiful self,” with her new Devonne skincare line.
Demi Lovato has always been a strong voice in the world of supporting and offering help to those with confidence and mental health issues and she has now taken it upon herself to create a skincare range that can help those who struggle to accept the skin they are in.

There are three products from the collection; Deep Facial Cleanser, Hydrating Radiance Mist and 3-in-1 Moisturizing Primer, it is recommended then you use all three together for optimum results but each product can you help you in its own special way.
The facial cleanser does what it says on the label, it removes make up and dirt but doesn’t strip your skin from its natural oils. It is a rice derived formula that features apple extract to give your skin a boost and mushroom extract to help promote clear skin.
The hydrating mist is a lightweight treatment full of marine and botanical ingredients to help encourage moisture, fade imperfections and also feature liquorice extract that can promote even looking skin.
Finally the primer is a skin clearing product that is both lightweight yet luxurious and features numerous natural elements including rosemary and sunflower oil to help reduce excess oil, rice extract for healthy cellular turnover and like all the other products is paraben free.
The website is full of tips and information in regards to the products, Demi’s ideas and plan as well as how to order, costs and much more.

It seems that at the moment they only ship within the U.S but rumour has it worldwide shipping is close on the horizon.

Fashion: October 2014 Best Dressed

Autumn is in full swing and although I haven't been able to update my blog recently here we have best dressed from October (the best month of course what will Halloween and all)

  • Dakota Fanning is looked radiant in a red, tassel detailed Valentino dress and studded pumps at the ‘Effie Gray’ World Premiere. Her icy white, pale blonde locks and those blue eyes really are a striking combination
  • The younger Fanning sister Elle is equally as stylish and beautiful with her new chocolate hair and a nude Rochas gown as she made an appearance at the Mill Valley Film Festival
  • Leighton Meester attended the same event and wore a pretty and chic monochrome ensemble by Narciso Rodriguez, a hint of cobalt blue offered a modern edge
  • Kristen Stewart is back on the red carpet and she is back in Chanel Couture, she wore this beautifully quirky yet wonderfully classic black and silver dress as she went to the screening of her latest movie in New York

  • Odeya Rush was looking every inch a princess in this sparkling Christian Dior dress at the 2014 Princess Grace Awards Gala. The lilac silver dress is beautiful and I love that she kept her hair out of her face and away from the neckline to showcase the glittering bodice
  • My ultimate girl crush Demi Lovato looked super hot in a bright pink Philip Armstrong bodycon co-ord as she attended Vevo CERTIFIED SuperFanFest. The black accessories are enough with such an eye-catching dress and that awesome turquoise dip dye and undercut. 
  • Annasophia Robb, ever the young fashionista wore a grey Markus Lupfer skater dress at FFANY Shoes on Sale Event. Annasophia is always on point with the styling and the sleek ponytail, mint box clutch and simple silver bangle simply prove my point.
  • Kate Mara shocked me in the lime J Mendel number, in a good way. As she made her way to the Jimmy Choo New Bond Street Townhouse & Vices Launch Party she wore a fitted mini dress with khaki heels and a matching clutch, a step out of her comfort zone but gorgeous as always. 

  • The always beautiful Lizzy Caplan wore a super cute Elie Saab dress at the 2014 Variety Power of Women Event. I'm so used to seeing detailed, extravagant gowns by Elie Saab that this pretty, little collared dress is a lovely change. Lizzy paired with soft up do and nude heels to offer a pretty perfect ensemble
  • Megan Fox continued to amp up her vixen factor as she wore this glorious deep red Versace full length dress as she attended Ferrari’s 60th Anniversary In The USA Gala. I love her hair here, wonderful length on her and the make up is spot on too.
  • Lily Collins wore a stunning purple ombre strapless dress from the Elie Saab Couture collection as she bared the wind for the ‘Love, Rosie’ Rome Film Festival Premiere. I was a little put off by the black platforms but you everything is too beautiful to let that ruin it.
  • Taissa Farmiga wore a fabulous metallic ML Monique Lhuillier dress to the ‘The Judge’ LA Premiere. The yellow gold metallic against the dark pink makes it almost look like fire. The neckline and shape is perfect on Taissa and muted styling lets the beautiful dress take centre stage.
My best dressed for October goes to Demi Lovato. I know there are a great deal of gowns, glitter and drama on this list but when I saw Demi I thought she looked absolutely wonderful!

Life: Update

My laptop decided to die on me!
I was without it for about six weeks, oh the torture. I haven't been able to write, in any way, nor have I been able to download new music or catch up on TV! Lost without this beauty. 
It turns out the motherboard was knackered but it is all fixed now, thanks to Papa Vierke. Having said that the battery is on it's way out too!! Brilliant.

Anyway, I feel like I've been super busy throughout September and October, I didn't manage to do ANY of my journalism or anything! Now it's November!

Anyway I'll be back on track now, new fashion, news etc all coming soon
