Golden Globes: Who wins best dressed?

The Golden Globes took place yesterday and along with the majority of my Twitter feed, the dresses have been judged and the best dressed ladies of the evening have been chosen. Having scanned through as many pictures as I can, I hereby conclude Sienna Miller, Emily Blunt, JLO and my ultimate girl crush, Emma Stone as my favourites. Nude and blush tones are a great prediction for the season ahead, whilst Emma’s trouser combo stood out in the sea of full-length gowns! Who wins your best dressed gong?

The Saturdays – The next girl group to hit the dust?

Frankie Bridge, one fifth of The Saturdays announced she is pregnant with her second child last week and this once again has left fans wondering if this is the end of the girl group. The band seem to working on a rota basis deciding which member can fall pregnant next it seems. Rochelle has had a baby and now  both Una and Frankie are pregnant with their second children. So, could this be the end? Rochelle Humes is making a name for herself thanks to a clothing range at Very!, a presenting career with husband, ex-JLS member Marvin and as a panellist on BBC3 show ‘Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff’. Whilst Mollie King has a clothing range with Oasis and both Una and Vanessa regularly frequent the Daily Fail pages. The news of Frankie’s pregnancy came just a week before the start of the Strictly Come Dancing tour and just weeks after she made it to the final of the series. The band released their Greatest Hits back in August last year and a tour followed in …

Celebrity workout DVDs: Worth the investment?

Charlotte Crosby, known best for her residency in the Geordie Shore household often makes her way into the weekly mags,but recently she has been hitting the news for a totally different reason – her epic weight loss. Now, before I get into this post I must stress my opinion doesn’t come from that of a keyboard warrior. More from a bemused point of view, following the trend of celebrity workout DVDs hitting the shelves every January and whether they are selling us unattainable results or a path that should be followed. Viewers of the MTV show will know that Charlotte’s weight has fluctuated over the past couple of years but in December, Charlotte unveiled her petite size 6/8 body and her new 3 minute belly blitz DVD to boot. Her exercise plan and food swaps have been provided in many of the weekly magazines, but is this a realistic representation of achieving a healthy lifestyle? The old saying goes that it takes one months to make a habit and one month to break. Celebrities such as …

Kylie Jenner – The cool kid on the block

Kylie Jenner. The youngest of the Kardashian/Jenner clan is making waves on social media thanks to her babein’ Insta pics of the lips, the boobs and the stand-out green hair and I am loving it. When the Kardashians hit our screens our screens  back in 2007, the air time was firmly focused on the older three, however it’s time to pave the way for the younger Jenners sisters to emerge. Whilst Kendall strides ahead, taking the fashion glitterati by storm on the catwalk,  Kylie is the sister to take note of. Khloe Kardashian has for many years been my favourite sister by far. No nonsense, sassy and speaking up when necessary, she makes Kim and Kourt look pale in comparison and Kylie is fabulously following in her footsteps. The firm friendship between the two is often displayed on Instagram. Complete with cliquey pictures of the two, minus the rest, my favorite two have united and Kylizzle and KoKo are on the rise. Kylie has denied any cosmetic enhancements but those lips can’t be missed and …

The time I artraved with Lady Gaga…

In the midst of Hurricane Gonzalo on Tuesday night I met up with two of my favourite people and headed to Manchester to catch the latest leg of Lady Gaga’s Artrave tour! One of my lovely friend’s Caro, who I used to work with, booked tickets for herself, our friend Kat and I earlier in the year. It was so lovely to see them both and catch up on Kat’s gorgeous wedding news and get back to what I do best – mithering Caro and bug her about reading my blog:) So after many months of waiting.. we headed off to marry the night and experience Gaga at her best! I’m actually really annoyed it has taken me so long to see her as she put on one hell of a show. One of my favourite things about going to gigs and watching artists perform live is when they love it as much as the crowd and Gaga gave it her all. Hit after hit, she just kept delivering! With many, many monologues to the crowd on …

My love for lie locks

After spending a good three years yo-yo’ing between having red and browny-red hair, earlier this year I took the plunge and went blonde at the hairdressers. After years of box-dying, I am a full head of highlights kinda gal and a true convert to blonde. But recently I have missed that little touch of colour so enter dip dye. I have been introduced to the wonders of Manic Panic semi-permanent hair dye and have embraced the purple dip dye with the help of lie locks. When it comes to hair colour, Kelly O is the ultimate idol in my eyes. I lust after her wardrobe and her choice of hair dye even more. She rocks the grey, looks amazing in lilac and blonde so well. Who says the lilac wash and grey is just for grannies! *Images taken from Google Images

Kelly Brook for New Look: The verdict

Just how is it September already? 2013 seems to be passing by in such a blur and before I know it my holiday to Rome will be here- not that I’m counting down or anything…..But September brings a new season and the shops are starting to roll out with Autumn and one email that hit my inbox in particular got me excited. Kelly Brook for New Look. Now let  me explain, when I think celebrity collections I think small sizes that won’t cater for my body type and skin tight bodycon dress, but the Kelly Brook range completely dispels that. Kelly is one of the women who dominates column inches in the weekly magazines with chatter about her love life and her dress size, but one of the reasons I like her and her collection that it is so wearable. The A/W drop features two gorgeous dresses that I just need! The cut on the dresses aren’t too short, there are a couple of long sleeve blouses which would be perfect for work and a …

The Kardashian Effect

Khloe Kardashian Odom. I have been a fan since I first discovered KUWTK during my 3rd year of University. After spending my younger years growing up in a house with with bog standard channels 1-5 until the launch of Freeview, the trials and tribulations of the Kardashian sisters and Jenner family was alien to me. Well until Virgin TV was introduced to my life in my 3rd year student house. Ahh memories. But, back to the matter in hand. Khloe quickly became my favourite character. Loud, outspoken and a ‘takes no prisoners’ attitude my kinda woman some might say. She told the truth to her sisters and has a quick, witty personality and a loving relationships with the younger Jenner sisters, who are now hot on the heels of the three K’s. Kim, Kourtney and Khloe. But, like I say Khloe has always been my favourite sister. I have been meaning to write this post for a while, but after a conversation with one of my friends whilst watching an episode of ‘Kim and Kourtney Take New York’. It was missing one thing in my opinion Mrs …

Rihanna for River Island: What Women Want?

Well, it has been a while since I last posted. The truth is, I kept meaning to but then life got in the way and I forgot or just didnt have anything blog-worthy to write about. Alas, I am back and determind to rediscover my blogging space and get back into a routine of regularly writing. With it being Mother’s Day, the usual routine of card and chocolate orange-giving has taken place and now its lazy Sunday time, until I take the ma out for a meal this evening. I thought I would focus this post around the new Rihanna for River Island collection and offer my thoughts. First and foremost, I’m a Rihanna fan, a huge fan. Yes, over the past year or so she has made some crazy choices with her image, styling and one boyfriend in particular, but I continue to like her. I believe she does have her head screwed on, but is enjoying having the whole world at her fingertips at the tender age of 24. I mean if Beiber is supposedly cracking …

London Fashion Weekend- Round Up

Just how is it Friday already? My week off seems have to flown by so quickly, but I promised easrlier in the week I would be back with an update, so here I am! Yesterday I went down to London for London Fashion Weekend. Being an avid follower of Fashion Week and reading the many posts in the blogosphere, I thought why not take a trip to Fashion Weekend to live a snippet of the lifestyle and a cheeky shopping trip to London! (Warning- this post is very picture heavy!) The event is being held at Somerset House and runs from yesterday to this Sunday (I think!). I went all out and booked the Shop The Lot ticket, which basically meant I could browse round the many stalls in Somerset House, enjoy a Catwalk show and enjoy a complimentary glass of bubbly, which you’ll agree is always nice! Many high-end brands were in attendance so I got to coo over beautiful Vivienne Westwood clothing and fell in love with a couple of Lola Rose pieces. Diet Coke, …
