A MILITARY COMBINATION

A MILITARY COMBINATION

Since seeing an array of dark green military concepts travel down the runway for AW16 I have been dying to rock this look. Holding back through the summer season until the trend was in full force. The soft slouch of the top against the strong statement fedora sees the transition of the cold-shoulder through to Autumn. Making the most of the mild change in weather before the icy air sets in for Winter and baring skin becomes the distant past. With trends and fashion week being the hot topic here – let’s talk about the inevitable. Our fashion calendar works…

STYLING HAIR EXTENSION

STYLING HAIR EXTENSION

I’m the kind of girl that in my down town rocks a messy bun. If it’s a quick outing a Kate Moss style naturally dried unkempt hair-do is my go-to. However when I’m looking for that extra wow factor for an evening out or an event I always turn to my trusted hair extensions to create volume. With naturally thin hair it’s impossible to create anything like this on my own! I ordered my current extensions from a brand called Lulla Bellz. I’m usually so skeptical about ordering hair online as colour matching is so difficult, however they colour matched my hair…

THE ESTÉE EDIT

THE ESTÉE EDIT

– THE MAKEUP CASE – Five trains, two hotels and one very sticky tube ride – that’s been my week so far. You may think it’s because of fashion week but this is my weekly routine and it kills me. Packing and unpacking is monotonous and you would think I would have got used to it by now but somehow I always forget something! THANKS TO ESTÉE LAUDER THOUGH, I HAVE MY TRAVEL BEAUTY ESSENTIALS NAILED. Hot pink is all the rage at the moment and I would like to personally thank Chanel for making it fashionable once again! Pink…

SUMMER IN THE CITY

SUMMER IN THE CITY

– LONDON FASHION WEEK – London Fashion Week brings up so many different memories for me. For years I worked as a fashion journalist and I was that person in trainers running between shows and sweating profusely whilst wedged on a bench full of fashion goers. Fifty shows in five days – I sat watching glamourous men and women stopping for photographs pondering how on earth are they not looking in a similar dishevelled shape to me? For me fashion week was about stamina, perseverance, endurance and a great supply of blister plasters. Those where the early years when I…

COUNTRY LIFE

COUNTRY LIFE

– BY ALICE TEMPERLEY – Some time between August and September there is a definite change in the air. The warm winds turn into crisp cold air and summer days turn into winter weekends. Fashion Week, Halloween, Bonfire Night, Christmas & New year are just around the corner and Summer dresses are swapped for Winter warmers. The smell as the first leaves fall to the ground. The warm tea in your hands as you stroll down the streets – everything about this time of year excites me. More importantly lazy weekends no longer make me feel guilty as they are a…

GONE GIRL

GONE GIRL

Sometimes being a woman is hard and I mean physically. The skyscraper heels which destroy your feet, the spanky pants which restrict your breathing, the makeup which suffocates your face all day long and the bra that as soon as you walk through the door needs to come off – for comfort reasons only. So styling a new way of dressing for those days when you just don’t want to, well, be feminine, is my coping mechanism for life. Scrape your hair back off your face tying it in a knot and reach for the biggest darkest shades as today…

THE SEPTEMBER ISSUE

THE SEPTEMBER ISSUE

Each month there are a few key products in my beauty collection that I like to rave over. I take beauty very seriously and have spent years trying and testing products before beauty blogging even began. I have EXTREMELY sensitive skin so maybe that’s why trial and error is so important when experimenting with new products or brands. First is the Guerlain Terracotta Bronzing Powder which has  a unique formula ensuring a fool-proof natural make-up result every time. I am not a fan of contour kits as I think in broad daylight they can make your skin look dirty, so instead I…
