Good morning. It’s time for Moodboard Monday again! This week Jen and I chose to do the theme of James Bond. Have you seen the new one yet ? I haven’t… but went on the hunt for some image stills from the movie. It was mostly action shots, 007 style but I wanted to create something original and fashion orientated. Hmmmm…
Then I stumbled across this gorgeous picture of Adele and a wonderful rooftop still from the movie and I was inspired! I adore the soft, muted colour palette, with a touch of warm coppery tones. It gave me the feeling of mystery, intrigue, softness, sophistication, luxury and understated glamour. Perhaps essential qualities for a bond girl?
I set to work collating items that captured the mood which is so much fun to do, especially when there is no budget. I figured I could splash out a bit this week and I think I’ve found some real beauties to strengthen this board. The top photos are in fact the moodboard itself, setting the scene for the tone, colour palette and look I wanted to create and underneath I have translated the look into tangible pieces to wear. I think you will agree it creates a sophisticated, soft, mysterious, glamorous look.
Are you inspired to make your own James Bond moodboard too? Or a moodboard on any other theme? Great! Hunt around for some inspiring imagery to set a mood. You can stop there or you can add a fashion or interiors slant on it. For more tips check out my tutorial on how to make the perfect moodboard.

The trend for lace is not going anywhere… in fact it is even spreading to our face! This Halloween why not opt for a stylish take on dressing up with some facelace of your own? We made our own DIY facelace with black facepaint and a fine brush. You could even use an eyeliner. Make more »
The trend for lace is not going anywhere… in fact it is even spreading to our face! This Halloween why not opt for a stylish take on dressing up with some facelace of your own? We made our own DIY facelace with black facepaint and a fine brush. You could even use an eyeliner. Make up a pattern or take inspiration from the very beautiful original facelace available at www.harveynichols.com
Team your facelace with a little black dress and add a touch of Halloween with a skull necklace and these FAB skulls boots by Jeffrey Campbell now available at Office. Cool, classy Halloween. Now this is the kind of dressing up I like :)
My friend told me last week she spent an astonishing 800 euros in one go on creams for her face. I nearly died on the spot.
I swear my husband does not know how lucky he (or should I say his wallet) has it, although I do like reminding him! Nivea face wipes, that is my beauty regime :/
Call it lazy, call it slovenly… I can and do leave the house regularly without makeup. Recently this is starting to change though.
I’ve found a new makeup – Bare Minerals. I was introduced to it on a “look 10 years younger night” that I attended with my mother. I felt rather awkward as I was definitely the only one below the age of 50 there and I could feel the seething eyes scanning my wrinkle free skin, oops. It was a great night for freebies as they invited several members of the audience to have beauty treatments to make them look 10 years younger. My mum had her teeth whitened and spent the rest of the evening looking like gromit, sitting in front of a laser with a mouth piece in (snigger).
I did not DARE put my hand up for anything and just listened ;)
Anyway it was on this evening that they demonstrated Bare Minerals and I was sold! For 40 pounds I received a starters kit of 3 brushes and 4 pots of mineral powder, 1 concealer (amazing at covering the dark circles under my eyes), 2 base foundations, 1 powder for warmth and 1 mineral vale (not sure what this does apart from make my skin look awesome!)
Bare Minerals is a beauty product unlike any I have ever known but what I do know is that every single time I wear it I don’t even recognise myself in the mirror! My skin radiates with dewy perfection and I get compliments that make my head swell :) I haven’t been asked to endorse Bare Minerals but I do so totally wholeheartedly. It makes me feel great and I want to introduce it to you too. I also just read it is clinically proven to improve the appearance of skin over time, what more could we ask for?
My sister said last week that I looked so young that I actually looked like I had stolen a child’s face. Which is rather odd but made me laugh.
