Red lips sink ships

So I was sat at work today staring out of the window onto a cold and rainy London fantasising about laying in a hammock in blistering heat, smelling of coconut and sipping a pina colada (then nipped to the ladies, definately not to cry about my longing for the summer?!).  It got me thinking about how depressing January is (unless you have your birthday in Jan so congrats to all you out there fortunate enough).  January: Cold, if not snow then most definately rain, no more Christmas to look forward to and paler than pale skin.  So we need something to perk us up right?  A little sunshine in the form of bronze and gold make up with a red hot lip, sounding good?  Well this is the look that I have chosen to guide you through this evening and who wears this look better than the goddess that is Kim Kardashian.  Whether you love or hate the woman you can't deny that she is a seriously hot piece of ass (quite literally in her case). 

  • Honey-bronze complexion- CHECK
  • Lusterous glossy mane- CHECK
  • Curves in all the right places-CHECK
  • A nice bit of dollar stored away in the Bank of America (GOD BLESS AMERICA)- CHECK
So yeah basically the girl has it all (apart from a husband) and that definately makes her one of my top lady crushes, just look at her!!:
