Silk Blouses and Shoulder Pads


Take me back to the 80's with this patterned blouse complete with shoulder pads! 


A silk blouse is the ultimate wardrobe staple for sophisticated style; a vibrant coloured silk blouse with shoulder pads may scream more Pat Butcher than Victoria Beckham (For those born post 80's/90's just Google and laugh) but they really have come back in style thanks to Zara. 

Zara have an array of these blouses in at the moment and the best part being that they are actually body suits,  no more trying to keep them neatly tucked in all day with one stray edge working its way loose flapping around all creased. Snap fastening at the bottom makes it easier to use the ladies too, no more stripping naked.. or pulling far enough to the side.. don't pretend you haven't done that. 

 This beautiful Zara blouse is just £29.99 and will see you through day and night and is perfect for upcoming parties.

I used a broach to stop from showing too much clevage during the day.

New blog name


Why the name change? 


Some of you may have noticed the name change from 'Charlene and Leanne' to 





When the blog was first started it was with myself and my twin sister Charlene, we used to meet up to create content but due to different work schedules it was getting increasingly harder to do this so I have been taking over the postings for the last few months now. Charlene will still feature on her and on videos for YouTube so you will see her around. 

I chose the name 'Styled with Lipstick' as it represents me. I love fashion and styling and I'm always finished with lipstick, lipstick of the red variety. (Charlene is more of a nude twin.. lipstick nude that is)


Thank you for following me thus far and I hope you continue to follow me through my blogging journey.

Aldi Luxury Candles





At this time of year when the nights have drawn in and you are starting to feel more of a chill than you like there is nothing better than hibernating at home. 
Warm baths and snuggling on the sofa in your favorite pyjamas, hot chocolate in hand, box sets at the ready and a candle burning is obligatory. 

I have over the years I feel tested every candle there is. I  have a candle in every room of my house and in some places groups of candles in different sizes; to my horror earlier this year I found out that allowing blown out candle soot to just rise in the air will leave lovely white walls with a grey tinge and wiping it off causes more problems! (The living room and bedroom needed re-painting) 

You would have thought the above would have stopped my candle obsession but I have now found some obvious solutions; place a candle lid over the top to stub out flames and leave your white walls in tack, also keep wick trimmed so you don't have such a flame to cause rising soot, you'll thank me later. 

Now you would have already seen the 'look a like' candles and diffusers in Aldi and if you haven't, where have you been? 
I was introduced to these after a client brought me the Pomegranate candle into work one day. It smelt absolute amazing, it is by far my favourite smell, it's warming and heavy with a hint of fruit. 
The candles are large with 2 wicks and a silver lid and priced at £3.99 wont break the bank. The design is simple and stylish. The reed diffuser's are also £3.99 and both come in the same scents; Numbers 1, 2, 3 and 4. 

No 1: Lime, Basil and Mandarin
No 2: Blackberry and Bay 
No 3: Pomegranate
No 4: English Freesia and Pear





Quality 

Now the price may be very low in comparison to its high end version but don't be fooled on the smell.   
The smell is strong but not overpowering and lasts for the full burn time. Once you have lit your candle if you allow it to burn until the top layer becomes completely melted you will be able to burn your candle completely down to the bottom of the jar. 
The reed diffusers are also strong smelling, I turn the sticks every few days to keep my living area smelling of No 1 (I have two in my living area) 


Stylish Storage 

Along with candles I can never have too much storage, It helps me keep everything in order. These candles once burnt out make great storage containers too. 
To clean for storage use I filled with boiling water and allowed to cool. Once cooler but not cold I then used an old spoon to lift out the wax that has set on the surface of the water and placed in a bin. I then wash the jar inside to to remove residue and polish clean. 


An empty jar makes great brush storage... mine are a little dirty. 


Another jar keeps my jewellery safe from the cats
