MIW Reviews – Sparkling Jewellery

It’s the most wonderful time of the year!!   Thanks to the internet & late night shopping there’s endless of hours to shop in the lead up to Christmas, however if finding the perfect gift for your bestie/girl friend hasn’t been easy, this might just be the gift to mark the sparkle of your friendship. I came across Sparkling Jewellery on Twitter earlier this year when their  iconic double coin necklace captured my attention. After visiting their website and seriously crushing over the entire range, I was super excited that Sparkling Jewellery kindly sent me some lovely pieces for our MIW Review feature. They arrived gorgeously packaged in a bright orange bag full of goodies including a pen, the jewellery itself came individually… Read More →

Trending this season

So much to talk about when it comes to Autumn girls. This is the season we work fashion the best, a sweeping statement I know, but we really do just relish the cosy and the cuddly things in life. We may not like all the weather that goes with it, but we do love the winter coats, the layering, the cashmere knits, the list goes on. What are your Autumn must haves? everyone has their winter wardrobe faves. Here’s a few of my must haves. x This season is all about the Autumn golds, and glittery metallics are going to be big this year. Try Mac shimmer pigment pots. They highlight features brilliantly, and are multi-use products. Apply to eyelids,… Read More →

AW14 makeup

The latest trend to watch out for on the catwalks, doesn’t just translate to your wardrobe, but also your makeup bag. Yes the time has come to update your makeup look, to see you through the winter, and this season its all about teaming a nude, matte face with a bold statement brow (a la Cara Delavigne) as seen on the catwalks.  So how do we get the nude look, without actually going nude with the makeup (I can hear the sigh of relief girls, you still wear makeup, just less of it) so there is no need to get drastic, lets see how we get the understated look just right. Remember, this look is not about having a flat… Read More →

AW14

Now its the start of September, lets take a quick fast forward to AW14. As the summer comes to a close, and the nights draw in, it will soon be time to stop clinging on to your maxi dresses in the hope of some last minute sunshine, but instead, embrace the colder weather (as hard as it is) and wrap up in some cosier, snug fashion items. So what are going to be the big trends coming up for AW14 you ask? well think, blankets, oversized knits, tom boy tailoring and glitter (yes lots and lots of glitter) Lets firstly take a look at the fashion blanket, set to be a big hit next season. Take a look at the… Read More →

It’s all about the nails

Nail Art  Now I love nail polish but seeing all the different design and bling on offer there is to use, looks scarily detailed and off putting if you’re wanting to create this look yourself. DONT BE SCARED! There is hope. The problem is we all live busy lives and don’t have time to sit down and create all these different designs as much as we would like to. So it is easier to book a slot at a nail salon and have them create the look for you, right? Well we are all guilty of this, myself included, but this can be expensive to keep up and I hadn’t realised how fun and none time consuming this can actually… Read More →

Dress to impress

With Madamrage.com What is it us girls go for when shopping for an outfit online? Are you dressing to impress, or are you simply trying to update your wardrobe? Personally I look for outfits which are versatile, of course glam but they need to have that element of affordability. Having come across ‘madamrage.com’ I have found there is some good choice on offer, spanning from casual to evening wear, there is something for all.  You might remember the lovely Nicole Shcherzinger wearing this black dress earlier this year, one of Madamrage’s own. This sexy black cut out dress is very reasonable at £16.00 and can still be purchased via the site, also available in blue. It oozes fun and flirtation,… Read More →

The Kardashian Fashion

Keeping up with the Kardashian’s…..fashion When I say the name’s Kim, Khloe and Kourtney, you probably already know who I am talking about. If you don’t, where have you been?! The Kardashian clan are swiftly becoming a well established brand in the UK following their already successful line with Dorothy Perkins released last year. They have since broken into the Beauty business, releasing their own make up line. However, you will probably know them firstly for their own reality TV series ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashian’s. Fans of the show will already know they started their journey into retail opening up a number of shops in the US called Dash. It is this passion for fashion which has lead them… Read More →

Christmas Jumpers

Now everyone should have at least one staple Christmas jumper in the build up to the big day. Whether you prefer the understated ones or an explosion of colour, there is a lot of choice out there to suit all tastes. Even my dog Clyde wears his jumper with pride every year. I was out with my friends only last week having an early festive gathering and the dress code was simply a ‘Christmas jumper’ it was great to see how everyone went all out with this theme. What is it you go for when picking these items? Would love to hear your thoughts. Either way we should remember to not take this trend too seriously, the jumpers should above… Read More →

Christmas LBD

Well girls, its that time of year again, yes we are near enough to the end of November to realise its time to get all glammed up for the Christmas party season. As if you are not bombarded enough with all the yummy food adverts out at the moment to get your appetites enticed for Xmas, which by the way is very unhelpful if like me you are trying the Little Black Dress (LBD) diet to get in shape for the festive season. The pressure is on! And I for one am determined to find the perfect LBD for me. Every year I try and find the best dresses on the market to suit my shape and style. There is… Read More →

How to create a messy braided chignon

So below I have put together a step by step on how to achieve a messy braided chignon seen on Jessica Alba, Lauren Conrad and Audrina Patridge. If it’s good enough for these Hollywood starlets then it’s good enough for us!   For this look I would always recommend for your hair to be at least one day old. This helps to create a lot more natural texture through your hair and it will also help give it oomph and hold. Step 1 I would start with slightly wavy hair, this just helps to create volume and movement in the bun. ( I will do another post on ‘every day waves”) Step 2 Split your hair in half starting from… Read More →
