NASTYGAL

NASTYGAL

– SUMMER OCCASSION WEAR – Hopefully by the time you finish reading this post you will have occasion wear nailed, or hopefully I can inspire you to go glam in some way this Summer. My colour of the moment makes a comeback with two new red hot numbers. Starting with this Nastygal jumpsuit – sophisticated, feminine and the perfect silhouette to flatter any figure. With it’s subtle flared sleeves and crochet detailing its nodding at a couple of trends without being over the top. Pockets are perfection when it come to trouser suits and a common theme throughout the Nastygal site. I’m not sure…

A WEEK IN DENIM

A WEEK IN DENIM

– HOW TO STYLE JEANS – It’s safe to say that jeans are the one item of clothing every one has in their wardrobe. I’m not sure when jeans were invented but I have a feeling they’re going to be around for decades to come. Why are jeans so popular? Is it the comfort, durability, movability, flattery or all of the above? I wear jeans so much I really have to force myself out of them but somehow I always end up right back in my comfiest pair of jeans – which right now are these lush pair from Factory-Fashion.com.  SINCE…

NIVEA X MATTHEW WILLIAMSON

NIVEA X MATTHEW WILLIAMSON

– #LOVE IT FOR LONGER – Every once in a while as a blogger I get a real pinch me moment and thanks to NIVEA this was definitely one of those moments. I have been addicted to fashion since my art days at high school, whilst everyone else was painting pictures of fruit, I was sketching dresses and playing around with fabrics. Soon I discovered fashion designers and Matthew Williamson has always been a firm favourite of mine since his days of dressing Sienna Miller began. I was invited down to London to meet Matthew and discover his ‘Love It For Longer’ collaboration…

TIMING OR FATE

TIMING OR FATE

– IF IT’S FATE, HE’S LATE – Do we live our lives impeccably playing out our fate or is timing simply a bitch. Ever heard the saying ‘it wasn’t meant to be’ – our minds trying to convince us that fate plays an important role. From the storybooks (Cinderella a personal fave) we assume that Prince Charming will come riding in on a horse in our mid to late twenties just in time for us to have a perfect happily ever after. Fate. What if I have to have children by the time I’m 35 (biological clock and all that),…

GIRLBOSS GENERATION

GIRLBOSS GENERATION

– BY OURSELVES, FOR OURSELVES – Welcome to generation Girlboss. For the first time in history as we know it, we stand alone able to do everything by ourselves, for ourselves. Well, everything except conceive so maybe we’ll keep the men around a little while longer. The past few weeks I’ve been blessed to attend some wonderful blogger events and aside from the beautiful atmosphere one thing never fails to impress me – being surrounded by girls standing on their own two feet and basically killing it at life. I reiterate – absolutely KILLING IT! I always laugh when people…

LIFE LESSONS

LIFE LESSONS

– FROM A WOMAN WHO HASN’T GOT A CLUE – Did you know last night I cried myself to sleep? Today I cried hysterically from laughter. I’m a girl, that’s what we do. Sometimes, my friends that don’t fail to have me in fits of giggles are the ones that suffer from depression. What you see on the outside doesn’t always match what’s going on inside. It’s quite easy in this day and age to look at someone’s life through, in particular, a rose-tinted Instagram and feel that they have it all, small dog, hot hubby, marble staircase and all.…

SPRING BREAK

SPRING BREAK

– DAYWEAR AT DEBENHAMS – A ‘shopping day’ – a rare excursion where I tear myself away from my online shopping addiction. My immediate venture leads me straight to a department store – the ultimate female playground – Debenhams being one of my favourites. LIKE A KID IN A CANDY STORE I COULD SPEND HOURS BROWSING THE NEW-IN MAKEUP ON THE GROUND FLOOR THEN FINISHING OFF IN THE SHOE DEPARTMENT. THE SMART CASUAL So I’ve teamed up with Debenhams to show you exactly how I’m planning on tackling Spring/Summer dressing this years. When it comes to daywear I go one of two…

LADY IN WHITE

LADY IN WHITE

– A HORROR STORY – We all know the 80’s horror movie ‘lady in white’ all too well and as I walk down the street in a crisp white outfit I can assure my victims are horrified. Each woman gives me a knowing glance – the danger, the empathy, flashes across their faces as they wonder how long it will remain, well, white. We all shy away from a world of white when it comes to casual attire for a number of obvious reasons. I advanced out with a shield of white armour knowing I was about to head into…

THE INDUSTRY

THE INDUSTRY

– WHAT I’VE LEARNT SO FAR – Two years ago I was in my final year of university – a ‘mature’ student obviously. I was a bit late to the game when figuring out what I wanted to do in life. It was right about now actually that I could just about see the finish line in April 2015. Everybody had jobs lined up and knew where they wanted to go and what they wanted to do but I still hadn’t got a clue. I had a CV of journalism, PR, styling and design internships under my belt, years of…

LAST NIGHT IN PARIS

LAST NIGHT IN PARIS

 – SHOPS & CHAMPAGNE – My final night in Paris was spent at the Hôtel Etoile Saint Honoré by HappyCulture perfectly located at the west end of the Champs Elysees and a five minute walk from all the shops. Of course I had to wander along down my favourite road in Paris – Avenue Montaigne – scattered with the world’s most influential designer flagship stores. It’s worth having a look just for the eccentric and magnificent window displays and a browse the latest ‘IT’ bags of the moment. I’d done my fair bit of sightseeing so when the porter escorted…
