River Island does plus size
As a plus sized lady, I'm incredibly excited to see that River Island will be offering plus size clothing from March in a range called "River Island Plus". There are 75 items available in sizes 18-24, offering everything from party dresses to work-wear classics. The items will start at £6 and will be priced up to £80. The range will be available in selected stores and online! Yay!

The Campus Idol collection from KIKO
I'm starting to wonder when KIKO might run out of ideas! The Campus Idol collection is available now and it takes inspiration from college and street style. The collection is designed to be fun and colourful and it's taking inspiration from school uniforms! I personally love the KIKO coat of arms which is on the front of the makeup mag, but I also love the double ended Double Dare Eyeshadow and Eyeliners which only cost £7.90. 

Introducing Brandstorm - your chance to work with La Roche-Posay
Brandstorm is L'Oréal's unique business competition for students to unleash their creativity. Each year Brandstorm includes one of L'Oréal's international brands, and this year it's the turn of year La Roche-Posay. Undergraduates will work as a team of three students and take on the role of innovation, taking part in a four to six month business. It's a journey to create an "exciting and disruptive digital idea, aimed at 15-25 year olds".

The Marilyn Monroe Lipstick Collection
The Marilyn Monroe and Max Factor "partnership" caused a lot of controversy in 2015 but they have just announced the first collection. 
The Marilyn Monroe Lipstick Collection launches this month and features four shades of red. They say that the at "least one red to will suit every woman" - using a collection of different undertones. The lipsticks are infused with grape seed oil and avocado butter to stop the formula from drying out. They will retail for £7.99 each at Boots. 

The new Candleglow Soft Luminous Foundation from Laura Mercier 
The beauty world tends to get pretty excited when Laura Mercier launches something new. The Candleglow Soft Luminous Foundation aims to "recreate the warm ambiance and flattering effect of the glow in a candlelit room" - which just sounds incredible. The foundation reflects light and offers a medium coverage formula. It's a buildable formula and it comes in 24 shades. It will launch in February 2016, priced at £35.
