Dr Martens Chelmsford Shop Opening

I love when there’s a new shop opening, I was invited down to Chelmsford for the opening of the brand new Dr Martens shop on Bond Street and the celebrations did not disappoint. People flocked to the shop with queues seeping into the town centre, to see the new products and the local band that were performing. With influences such as The Clash and The Streets, Ratboy had the crowd both inside and outside the shop working up a storm. People bounced, chanted and sung along with them as they enjoyed not one but two sets due to how many people there were.

There was cool art work and Dr Martens products also all around the shop for people to enjoy and I picked out a few of my favourite pieces.  First up are these gorgeous Magdalena Aunt Sally boots, they’ll go with anything as they’re so versatile. They’ll work fabulously with a dress and cardi for the Autumn and for the Winter they’ll go great with jeans and a warm jumper.

I love these Vonda boots – with the iconic Dr Martens flat boot and red embroidered roses, this stunner will make any outfit. They’re a stand out boot, and ones that you’ll want to bring out year after year. The Tassel Brando Leather Saddle bag is a roomy bag with a card holder slot inside. It’s a beautiful colour with an over the shoulder strap and is one that will get many people talking too.

Archive: Soap and Glory Supercat Eye Liner

Supercat eye liner pen in carbon black from Soap and Glory is a lovely product. It’s a felt tip liner with a hard nib and it can create both a thick lined dramatic look or a more natural look with a thinner line. I do love to wear a feline flick, and although I still have issues in mastering like I’m sure everyone does, I still wear it often. This eye liner I’ve found is the easiest to use on my quest to find the perfect eye liner. Although I find that it does have a tendency to smudge and transfer if I wear it without a colour or base underneath it. I find that the best way to use this liner is to hold it horizontally and to sweep it across the lid close to the lashes,  joining several dots together along the way. The liner dries very quickly, and has quite a lovely gloss satin finish. I have found that it does last throughout the day but it can fade some what so needs the odd touch up. I’ve only had this for a few weeks but it also hasn’t dried up yet either which is a great start. It’s great eye liner for beginners though as the pen nib is robust and it’s also a bargain at £6 from your nearest boots chemist.
