Waking up this morning feeling the chill in the air, my first thought is to crawl back under my duvet and hibernate for winter. This bleak weather deflates my energy to even lure myself out of bed, let alone have … Continue reading
After waiting what seemed like an eternity, the postman finally delivered a little black box of goodies to my door yesterday. With its distinctive markings and the massive ‘Customs Fee To Pay’ sticker sprawled across the front it was obvious that … Continue reading
Let’s just talk about the ultimate fashion sin for a second. Socks & Sandals How is this even still a thing? Who wakes up in the morning throws on some horrible off white socks then intentionally teams them with some … Continue reading
It’s no secret that I love lipstick. My collection consists of every shade, even though I haven’t been brave enough to rock the black yet. I have been loving the Topshop beauty range for a while now and wanted to share … Continue reading
Prairie Charms approached me a while ago to collaborate with them on their new themed box. I’ll be honest, it didn’t take much convincing for me to say a quick yes and start the process so I could receive a customised … Continue reading
Once upon a time you couldn’t find me without a needle and thread in hand or an oversized paint splattered shirt on. Then the real world hit, work and life in general took priority over creative ventures. It’s time to … Continue reading
Well that’s another Oscars down and more designer dresses for me to envy and wish I had the privilege of wearing. I have to admit that the carpet was fairly tame and this years fashion was sadly forgettable. With this year … Continue reading
I have to say that I was really impressed with the fashion choices at this years Golden Globes. As usual some stylists should be sacked following the star studded event but most did an amazing job. It seems as if … Continue reading
It’s that time again, awards season has arrived.
Some may watch and follow these events to see the artists hard work be acknowledged – my reasoning, the outfits. The pure joy I have in waiting for the celebs to walk the red carpet and to see there outfit of choice. Of course it is fantastic for people to be nominated and receive an award for there achievements but we all know that the minute they step out of that black tinted car the whole world will be judging them on how they look.
Do I have the right shoes on to coordinate with my outfit? Am I wearing the right colour for this season? Is this outfit edgy enough for people to remember my choice tomorrow? How many millions are my earrings worth, I hope I don’t loose them? Can I remember what designer I am wearing?
All really important questions of course.
In five minutes the Golden Globes live from the red carpet on E! airs here in the UK. I will wait eagerly to see who has made a bold, brave choice and who has underwhelmed with a forgettable ensemble.
Of course I will report back to you all with my favourites but if you want to catch up sooner head over to my Twitter account for some live feedback.

Who are you most excited to see? I cannot wait to see Emily Blunt and Emma Stone.
Bring on the fashion!
It seems I have a lot to tell you since I’ve been absent from the blogging world.
I’ve changed jobs. I can now call myself a London commuter, Mayfair to be precise. Not as glamorous as some might think. Squabbling to get a seat then the crush, heat and hysteria that is the tube. If you have ever been on a tube during rush hour then you will know that you have to wave goodbye to the luxury that is personal space. One of the frustrating parts is that I can be having an amazing hair/makeup day, however when I actually get to work it looks like I’ve just run a marathon. Sweating, frizzy and NOT attractive. All things considered I bloody love London and all of it’s quirks.
My hair colour has changed 3 times in my time away. It’s now a burgundy that looks vivid in the light. As much as red dye is a pain to maintain I have a weakness and seem to keep coming back to that same colour.

Unless you bleach your hair first I do not know how anyone can get the colour this bright. I have been pillar box red once but had to bleach my hair beforehand, won’t be doing that again anytime soon. Hair = straw.
Over the years and experimenting with most high street hair dye brands I really rate the Loreal range. I’ve found that the colours are really pigmented, long wearing and you can usually get some form of special offer if you buy two or more. Perfect for someone like me who needs a couple of boxes for my thick mane.

One of my most exciting adventurous was London Fashion Weekend. Of course being a fashion addict I watched as many shows at LFW as I could, far to many amazing collections for me to mention. Let’s save that for another post shall we?
I have so much more to tell you but will keep you in suspense until next time otherwise we will be here for hours.
I’m glad to be back. More posts coming soon.
