An homage to Stella McCartney

Sunday, 30 March 2014



The name Stella McCartney has become synonymous with effortlessly chic British fashion. She has crafted a brand which has become one of the biggest fashion names worldwide. A huge factor in her success is as Tom Ford says,"her ability to be her own customer". She constantly stuns in outfits that look like they are...well made for her! Stella herself said in Vogue that "I'm always designing things I want to wear" and I think I can speak on behalf of a lot of women ... we want to wear them too! She designs not only for glamorous runway models, which is refreshing and her infamous silhouette dress has got to be one of the most copied looks ever.

Stella's success has not gone unnoticed and in 2013 her efforts were recognised by her Majesty the Queen! She received an OBE for her contributions to British fashion, dressed in a suitably spectacular suit.

My revolutionary product for long voluminous lashes

Thursday, 27 March 2014



Mascaras are a tricky thing to get right. No one wants clumpy spider legs for lashes but neither do you want a mascara that makes pretty much no difference. This random purchase from a frantic, super market sweep-esque Tesco shop has actually turned out to be a revolutionary product for me.


Bloggers Fashion Week Day 1 | OOTD

Wednesday, 26 March 2014

I was absolutely thrilled to be invited to the Bloggers Fashion Week. It was such an amazing idea to host an event where brands can interact directly with bloggers and showcase their creations, coupled with a beautiful location and delicious cocktails...what wasn't there to like?!

The theme for this particular evening was a "Summer Garden Party". For me this meant lots of bright, light, summery colours. This is the outfit I went for (please excuse the not so chic background!)






Kick start your health regimen with Juicing!

Friday, 21 March 2014

Juicing has become a popular phenomenon within the world of celebrity culture. Pictures have been circling for years of glamorous women running around LA with huge cartons of seemingly disgusting concoctions of green gunk! But what are these concoctions and why are they so good for you?!





OOTD - Little London Shopping Trip

Thursday, 20 March 2014

Here is a little outfit of the day post. I am slowly easing in to the world of fashion blogging, another passion of mine. So what better way to start than with a little shopping trip outfit from the other day!





Avène Hydrating Soothing Serum

Sunday, 16 March 2014

In the past couple of weeks I had noticed my foundation not applying properly - looking a bit patchy and sticking in all the wrong places. I hadn't changed my skin care routine at all and could not think of a reason as to why my skin was so dehydrated. Then, just in the nick of time, along came a parcel from fabulous team at Escentual containing the answer to all my skin woes: the Avène Hydrating Soothing Serum.





Style muse - Kim Kardashian

Tuesday, 11 March 2014

Kim Kardashian is the ultimate marmite figure in the world of celebrity. People feel so passionately towards her, with either intense love or seemingly more intense hatred. Countless people exclaim "she has no talent" "why is she even famous". Well, it seems her "talent" is her looks and *ahem* derrière, to put it nicely. But is this really hugely different to models, paid to front campaigns due to their looks? Personally, I admire Kim, not only for her enviable looks but for her incredible work ethic. She has created a hugely successful brand through sheer hard work and determination.

Monday, 10 March 2014

Fashionista of the day - Victoria Beckham

Monday, 3 March 2014

There is something so inspiring about an underdog who climbs to the greatest heights and overcomes peoples' preconceptions. Victoria Beckham has successfully shed her previous cheesy "wag" image and progressed in to a fully fledged fashion designer, with Anna Wintour's seal of approval to boot!




My secret beauty tips and tricks!

Sunday, 2 March 2014

I have followed beauty and fashion magazines pretty much since I learned to read! Although this meant over the years instead of analysing Shakespeare I was experimenting with at home hair masks, it has given me a fairly good knowledge of little tips and tricks (if I do say so myself haha..!) There are so many I don't want to turn it in to a marathon read, so this is part one, enjoy!
