Dreaming of Knitwear

Happy new year MIW beauties!- It’s been a while since my last blog, but I hope you all had a fab Christmas, and got lots of goodies x With winter still in full flow, and the temperatures far from warming up, I thought I would write about what is inspiring me this season…….knitwear, and lots of it! It’s no secret that I love a good knit and any excuse to wear one. What’s not to love? they are easily accessorised with black skinny jeans, boots, and a statement bag. Whilst January may not be everyone’s favourite month of the year, you have to admit it is a good time to hit the sales and grab yourself a winter bargain (or… Read More →

The Kardashian Kollection Part 2

Following the Kardashians’ successful collaboration with Lipsy last year, they are indeed back with another ‘kollection’, and you can imagine how eagerley anticipated their new AW14 line has been this year.  The Kardashian Kollection, with Lipsy, has been their most successful celebrity/fashion team up ever, and it’s no surprise, with a fan base as big as they have (including moi) What can I say,  I love the show, I love the hair and of course, the CLOTHES!           So what can we expect from this ‘kollection’? Well in typical Kardashian style, we can expect lots of figure hugging LBDs, (perfect for Christmas of course) monochrome, femme peplum cuts, jumpsuits galore, so all in all, plenty to… Read More →

Frightfully good fashion

With Halloween just around the corner, there will be plenty of you planning your entrance to halloween parties with a daring costume. If you have not yet found inspiration, or have a last minute invite to a great party, you don’t want to miss out because of the ‘I dont know what to wear dilemma’. Possibly some of you will be thinking ‘how far should I actually go with a costume’?.  You dont after all want to be embarressed, showing up to a halloween party, with the scenario where you are the only person in the room in a costume, let alone, in a cat woman costume (yes this is my story, this happened). The utterley cringe moment, where you… Read More →

Made In Chelsea-the look for less.

For those of you hardcore fans who adore watching Made in Chelsea as much as I do, when you’re not being shocked by Spencer Matthews latest antics, you will probably be taking note on the girls glorious wardrobes. I love this constructed reality show and can only dream of being invited to one of Mark Francis’s swanky shindigs. Chelsea definitely captivates it’s audience and it seems every episode there is an excuse to get their glad rags on and do what they do best… look fabulous! Even though we admire their style, the cast are kitted out in designer gear that most of us cannot afford to splash out on. I will be showing you how to achieve this look… 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 →
