My random impulse buy at work the other day when I was out covering another local store - Love it! It also comes in blue and pink.... think I may need the pink one in my life aswell. I've had lots of compliments about it already - great bright piece for the summer! Yellow Jelly Tote Bag, New Look £15.99
The summer season and hot weather may not have hit us yet but the bold colour tropicana prints sure have, they're all over the highstreet - take a look beloe at my favourite key items from Topshop, Matalan, River Island, Oasis & Urban Outfitters.
I am a massive fan of bold prints so the Tropicana trend is right up my street - here below is my new tropical print halter neck maxi dress, that I teamed up with a green bandeau and pink waterfall blazer - all of which are from New Look. Recently I've also added a bodycon dress and vest in other tropical prints from New Look to my wardrobe - they may appear later on a what I'm wearing blog post.
So me and my best friend have been asked to model later this week for a collection of hats from milliner Ashley Pearce, I've also got to help style last minute and throw some outfits together. There's some amazing shapes and colourful pieces that flip between modern and vintages styles - should be fun.
Here's some of the collection images I've been sent to work from, I will reblog with the final images at a later date after the shoot.
Take a pinch of a Gwen Stefani, Rihanna, Marilyn Monroe and mix it up with the new London music scene and you have new artist Rira Ora! At the age of only 21 the singer from West London is on her way to big things with the help of her manager Jay-Z and his record label Roc Nation along with a few other new industry friends including Drake, Beyonce, Kanye West, Will.i.am just to mention. She took to the charts a few months ago featuring on DJ Fresh' track of 'Hot Right Now' helping t get her now out there but it's her new single R.I.P. featuring Tinie Tempah which shows more of the way Rita's music will probably be going. Her style takes a heavy influence from Marilyn Monroe as you can see for the big bold curls and red lips, teamed with a grimey West London street end feel on the clothing choices. She is also being linked to Rihanna's double - even though Rita had the big blonde hair way before Rihanna hit the bleach bottle. For me her new song is for sure catchy and going to do well in the charts but I can't wait for some new material from her album which really shows off her vocals which she has been hiding so far. Roll on the rest of Rita's fabulously sport ghetto looks - I love them!
Gone are the days of Emma Watson playing the well mannered, goodie-to-shoes and brain box Hermione Granger from the Harry Potters sequels. The 22 year actress was snapped on the set of her new movie Bling Ring in LA the other day baring a lot of flesh - all of wearing a pair of short hot pants daisy duke style, a white bralet and stiletto snakeskin sandals. The Bling Ring were a group of mostly teenagers based around Calabasas, California who burgled the homes of several stars, including Paris Hilton, Orlando Bloom, Megan Fox, Rachel Bilson, Ashley Tisdale and Lindsay Lohan. Emma plays a character named Nicki who has an ex-Playboy model mother, played by Leslie Mann, who schools her two daughters on the importance of finding fame. Emma was filming scenes on the VeniceBeach boardwalk and her character was seen selling designer bags.
With nail art is becoming more and more popular these days I thought I'd do a bit of research on some designs and I was totally drawn to the fruity designs ready for the hopefully hot weather coming our way soon. Below is some random designs and have found and some tutorials from CutePolish. I'll reblog about some great products to use to create these designs later this week.
Here's a couple of great tutorials from CutePolish with some fruity ideas to snazz up your nails this summer. Make sure to check out her other videos for my fantastic designs.
So I've just seen Jessie J's new video Laserlight feat. David Guetta which has to be said isn't one her best tracks and neither is the video. Although I have fallen in love with the leather biker jacket covered in silver studs and spikes she is wearing for one of the looks within the video - someone please help me find where it's from???
It's finally here! H&M bring us their new Exclusive Conscious Collection of Red Carpet looks - available in 100 stores around the worldwide. The collections help to push forward the campaign for greener fashion with the collection made from more sustainable materials such as orangic cotton, hemp and recycled polyester.
There has already been a massive celebrity following of the collection over the past few months including Michelle Williams, Amanda Sefried, Kristin Davis and Viola Davis showing that red arpet glam doesnt have to always cost the same as that of a desposit on a house.
A couple of photos from Saturday night out in Peterborough for my friend's birthday.
It was a rather interesting night - with fights kicking off in every place we went to - girls mostly dressed like they were from My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding and then clubs with full on ghetto grimey rooms which made me feel like I should have been in the Bronx of New York - but still a great night was had.
Left top - silly antics of finding an entrance ramp a challange
