Pretty Summer Trainers (especially for those on a budget)

Definitely a different one for me today, as I don't tend to talk about clothing much on the blog, but I wanted to dip in occasionally as I do spend an awful lot on clothing; specifically accessories and add-ons, as I like my basics and I tend to stick to a summer uniform of easy t-shirts and skinny jeans (particularly loving these cropped ones from ASOS here - link - they're awesome if you have little legs like me as you can get the shorter length[...]

Quick Pick Tuesday: Linziclips

Linziclips are cute, handy, well-designed hair clips that are useful if you're like me and like to wear your hair up a lot, as they're very easy to use and comfortable to wear.  They're available in a host of designs and three different sizes depending on what your needs are. They've been designed with a hidden springs so the metal doesn't intrude on the attractiveness of the design.  They're also non-slip and cylindrical, so they grab th[...]

Charlotte Olympia Online Advent of Glamour

Well, it's snowing on the blog now and that can only mean one thing...the countdown to Christmas has started and it's officially December! Exciting! And mildly terrifying! Slightly outside of my usual content, but I thought this was  a good one to flag up for you guys to get you into the Christmas spirit, since there's an opportunity to win some lovely Charlotte Olympia goodies.  For the next 24 days, there's an everyday chance to win something[...]

Emma Lomax SOS Kits

I absolutely love the concept of these Emma Lomax SOS Kits, as they fill a gap in the beauty market for being practical, cute and extremely handy kits, in all different variants depending on what you fancy.  They're little kits of basic essentials, all of which are themed around particular needs, so you have various types of travel kits that contain travel essentials such as mini hairbrushes, tampons, hair clips, phone charger and wet wipes among[...]

LFW: Felder Felder SS15 with Schwarzkopf

Felder Felder was my first ever experience of London Fashion Week, so the brand holds a special place in my heart for several reasons including that one.  I always love what Felder Felder create as they take their inspiration from things that I personally love, and their SS15 collection is a really good example of that;  I was fortunate enough to be on the front row this season which allowed me to get a very good look at both the fash[...]

Lily’s Yellow Hair

I'm a little bit in love with Lily Allen's look from the Brits last night: head-to-toe in a black, sparkly dress with dark, vampy hair.  The last third of her hair was dyed bright yellow and this coordinated well with her gold Chanel bag.  I love, love, love Lily's yellow hair! I wouldn't have a hope in hell of pulling off this look myself, but I'm always impressed when anyone manages to create a hair look that's interesting and original yet wearabl[...]

Halloween Face Lace – Broomchicks and Va Va Tomb

I haven't been "out-out" (as in, dressed-up-and-drinking out) since March this year, for the obvious reason being that I'm pregnant and going out-out in my condition is inappropriate, apparently.  Nothing has made me more jealous of you non-pregnant party-goers than the arrival of these amazing Halloween Face Lace designs - BroomChicks and Va Va Tomb. There is nothing I would enjoy more than throwing on some theatrical make-up and finishing th[...]

Guest Post: Favourite Autumn Footwear and Feet Treats

While autumn can be an excuse for neglecting your feet, stuffing them into winter boots where they can’t be seen, the festive season will soon be upon us when you’ll probably want to show off your tootsies in a pair of gorgeous party sandals. So, with that in mind, here are some of my favourite new-season shoes, and beauty treats for your feet, to make sure you’re party ready from top to toe. Colour-block high-heeled sandals I’m swoo[...]

My Visit to the Handpicked Media LFW Suite

I realised fairly early on in my pregnancy that LFW SS14 would clash with my third trimester, and knowing how hard I'd found it last season (on my feet all day running from shows to events) I realised that actively partaking in it this season would be a bit unwise.  Therefore, there will only be two posts regarding LFW for this season; this one and an *amazing* competition that I'll be launching over the weekend, so keep an eye out for that! E[...]

My Day at LFW AW13 in Summary

I'm doing things a bit differently and starting with a summary of my experience at LFW first whilst it's all still fresh in my mind! I had an absolutely amazing day running around like a lunatic on Friday which was the first day of LFW AW13.  I attended courtesy of Glaceau vitaminwater and Toni & Guy which allowed me to get a real experience of what LFW is all about.       My day started (after fort[...]
