Top up your wardrobe

By Elaine Scully Styling

Girls we can never have too many tops!!!! Excluding accessories, a new top is the simplest and most cost effect way of creating a new outfit. As our upper half gets the most attention most admirers won't even notice that you're wearing the same old jeans or skirt again. Tops are in the wash more often than any other item of clothes (apart from our undies of course) so I think that's plenty of excuses to top up your wardrobe with some figure flattering styles!!

Red Lippie on Teeth?

If you're toothy (like me!) it's easy to get red lippie on your teeth when you smile. Avoid this by simply rubbing a little Vaseline on your front teeth, just like the celebs and models do. It gives you teeth a little shine too :-)
