Happy Birthday Louboutin

As a lover of the iconic red sole, I was super excited to receive my first Louboutin nail varnish. This gorgeous nail varnish is in the infamous red shade, complete with striking spike lid. The luxuriously thick yet easy to apply red polish provided a rich, glossy colour in just one coat, and I was so impressed I went to Selfridges this week and purchased another bottle in Me Nude shade! I was shocked to discover that the Christian Louboutin Beaute range is only a year old as it feels like a beauty hero already! So I wish you a happy birthday...

Alexander McQueen

I recently visited the Alexander McQueen Savage Beauty exhibition at the Victoria and Albert museum and was truly blown away by the talent and style on display. We’re all familiar with the McQueen’s icons- the armadillo shoe, skull prints and tartan dresses, but his work was so much more than just fashion. McQueen’s world-renowned designs and eccentric shows incorporated art, architecture, feminism and style. His designs were as much about empowerment as they were about looking and feeling great, he understood the needs of women’s fashion and...

I make no secret of the fact I adore bunnies, in fact my house has become a bit of an homage to our long-eared furry friends.

Florals in full bloom

Posted by on Jun 20, 2015 in RECENT TRENDS | Comments Off on Florals in full bloom

Florals are back for summer and are literally everywhere. I first saw the floral return at this year’s London Fashion Week. There is a strong 70’s vibe this season, with fringing, suede and prints dominating the catwalks. However, unlike the 70’s florals, this year’s prints are more sparse, less overpowering and incorporate subtle pastel shades alongside the brights. Everyone from Victoria Beckham to Ted Baker has included these more subtle, fresher florals in their collections, available in stores now. While I am usually more classic...

Afternoon tea just got a make over

The uber trendy W Hotel in Leicester Square has added fashion forward afternoon tea to their menu. The Power Women afternoon tea includes a tasty selection of sandwiches, a glass of prosecco and most importantly- incredible power women themed cakes! The cute little cakes represent iconic women in culture through the years and look as good as they taste. There is a marbled marzipan cake to represent the Lady Gaga Meat dress, a candy floss topped chocolate mousse that replicates Vivienne Westwood’s wild red hair and a pearl draped cake with...
