A new season, a new colour palette, a new trend. I am so excited for the autumn and winter months. Not because it cold and blustery weather, but because I love wearing scarves, layers and pants. I’m so in love with ponchos and capes which are definitely on trend this season, especially the more structured style of cape that has been featured in many runway shows lately. I am not the most fashion conscious person in the world but I make sure i have loads of essential pieces such as plain long tops, tights and cardis that can be mixed and matched in heaps of different ways. Layering for me is the most important tool to stay warm and look great during the colder months. This post I have looked at statement pieces, essentials and accessories to brighten up the dull winter months. I have created three different looks that can be rocked in different places. I have used a combination of my personal style and some current seasonal trends that are coming through on …
Valentines Day, the one day people hate, loath or enjoy ! For me it is a bit of both and being generally crap at gift giving my other half is either surprised completely (fluke) or possibly underwhelmed. V Day the day where both halves of a new relationship are trying to get a non- awkward gift for each other that isn’t to creepy and for seasoned couples who aren’t sure if they should bother or not. Then theres the other side of Valentines Day where singles either cry into their wine and eat chocolate while cuddling up on the couch with their cat, or really simply don’t care. But no matter what everyone needs adorable love themed gifts and no matter if you have left it to the last minute I have complied some sure fire gift ideas for HIM and HER.
I first discovered Vanisha after coming across her vibrant Instagram @vanishalifeunstyled it’s filled with gorgeous images of her style, travel, food, books and tropical adventures. Vanisha leads a busy lifestyle, is torn between two countries, and is an all action kind of girl. I was naturally intrigued by her energy and I was curious to know more about the sophisticated lady behind the photos. I talked to the lovely Vanisha about life, work and travel.
Springs here and summers coming! So what better way to celebrate than with a beautiful bright lipstick from Karen Murell! <br></br> These lipsticks come in a great range of colours I tried Coral Dawn perfect for my olive skin, but still wonderfully pigmented for a pop of colour. It’s Suited to a variety of skin tones, porcelain, olive or chocolate brown and one application of Coral Dawn transforms lips to welcome the warmer months with sunshine-like brightness and head-turning happiness. I have never used this brand before, but the designer in me is so in love with the beautiful packaging it’s very floral and feminine. <br></br> The lipstick finish I would describe as a Demi matte finish and the orange tones and the demi matte- matte finish are currently a very in thing on the catwalks with the likes of Nanette Lepore, Donna Karan, Prabal Gurung, Rag & Bone, and DKNY using it in their recent 2014 shows. This will be an on trend colour its perfect for the warmer months as Karen Murrell creative director …
Summer is on its way and I wanted to celebrate with a little bit of a cute dusky pink mood board! I think its safe so say that anyone can rock the slouchy T-shirt and jeans look. I am vibing the peachy toned, pastel and light colours this season. Awesome colours to make those summer tans pop.
