Back in Business

3 Jan

Readers, fellow bloggers, people of the net – we are 3 days in to 2014 and I’m still without a calendar, own no diary and ate a whole pack of cookies before my chicken and chips tonight.

My hopes and aspirations for this year are supposed to be to grow up. I’m going to learn to cook a few healthy meals, dabble with a bit of box room interior design and I may even begin that novel I’ve been scribbling in notes since last Summer!

To be able to achieve all of the above I am in need of three very important factors:

1) Inspiration: – Excuse the boring old cliché but it’s true. On those days when willpower just isn’t enough to kick you into gear you need something (or someone) to remind you why you’re doing what you’re doing. SO..What exactly is my inspiration? Or who..?

This is my 2014 mood board – in all of it’s hope and glory! From Vegas to a new bedroom to my boo Bey…this year is the year I get my shit together.

2014

2) Plans: – Keeping busy is the key to a happy life. Some people keep on the ‘No New Friends’ path but I’m not about that hermit life anymore. This year will be my busiest yet…

3) #WERK: – Without working my arse off I won’t be able to do all the things I dream of doing to get my big-girl life set up! Hustle on!

The Comeback Post

23 Sep

Apologies all round are due as I haven’t blogged in a really long time. Technology is oh-so-fab when it works…

Anyway a major catch-up is needed! Whilst my laptop was in rehab I’ve missed London Fashion Week, a load of Miley Cyrus flavoured bullshit and the weird Kimye life-overs. BAD TIMES!  I’m back now, though, and ready to roll…

London Fashion Week Street Style [Via Cosmo]

Last Fashion Week I was all over it, loving the trends, the snaps, the blogs, the news…everything! The difference between then and now is the lack of interweb research and constant clicking on new links emerging as they were posted! SO I’ve skipped all the nitty gritty and gone straight to Cosmo for the Street Style LFW Guide. Let me tell you… I like what I see!

– Boyfriend Jeans: Forever searching for a Fashion Week-approved style that’s comfy and wage-friendly, I’m delighted to find boyfriend jeans back in the Autumn/Winter trends to keep!  I’ve found these three pairs for under £30! Which pair is your fave?

Zara Loose Fit Jeans £29.99 / Internacionale Midwash Jeans £22.49 / Punkyfish Ripped X-Boyfriend Jeans £25

boyfriend jeans

 

– Perspex Bags: Ever filled your bag with such awesome crap that you wished everyone could see?! Well now you can coz it’s cool:

The Beckton Transparent Clutch by LYDC £22 / Large Klear Klutch £59.99 / Nasty Gal Eye Candy Satchel £31

clear clutches

– Cool Headphones: Who cares if general members of the public are staring at you with Hipster Envy?! You look awesome coz Cosmo told you so:

Beats Solo by Dr Dre £169.95/ ASOS Metallic Gold Headphones £18 / GOJI Tinchy Stryder Over-Ear Headphones £49.99

Headphones

I forgot how much blogging makes me lust after stuff I didn’t think I even needed, let alone want. It’s good to be back. Tomorrow I discuss Miley Cyrus…if you’re a fan you may not want to hear what I have to say!

Aluna Francis: Fashion Profile

1 Aug

When you hear Aluna Francis sing you are transported into a futuristic daze, chilling with the beat and hearing what she has to say.

Having read my blog yesterday on AlunaGeorge’s debut album, Body Music, on Your Desirables you already know that I’m obsessed with everything this band has to offer.

It doesn’t just stop with the music – Aluna’s personal style is something just as special. I hate the word quirky so will avidly avoid it – Aluna does effortlessly sexy sports chic like no other.

With a lean supermodel body she certainly dresses to work it: short hems, shorts and crops all show off impressively long limbs and a washboard stomach.

Aluna always looks confident and comfy yet super stylish and bang on trend without looking like she’s trying too hard!

Kourtney Kardashian: Fashion Profile

11 Jul

Kourtney Kardashian has recently been awarded ‘Fashion Icon’ status from the Fashion Bloggers of the Twittersphere and it’s clear to see why. Her style overhaul since having her babies, Mason Dash and Penelope Scotland, has a touch of boho mixed with tailored luxe.

One of my all-time favourite Kourtney looks is this summery ensemble:

kk

Shopping around on Stylight I have managed to find an up-to-date version of this look! Check it out, I would DIE if I could shop this whole look:

kk 1

Hugo Boss Tunic

Odd Molly Shorts

Jeffrey Campbell High Heeled Sandals

Dolce & Gabbana Purse

Nina Ricci Glasses

Marc Jacobs Cuff

What a designer overload! But what a dream outfit! Stylight is my new obsession – it has everything you wish you had that you’ve seen on your fave celebs and then shows you where to get it! Knowing how much it all is may give you goosebumps at first but at least you know how much to save up! Plus, if you’re in no position to be having a gander at £800 purses then don’t fret – there are more promising brands on there too, such as AX Paris, TFNC and Vero Moda.

So, do what I just did…stare lovingly at the Fendi bag and Prada Glasses then shop at AX Paris! All shopping fixes are fixed!

Sexiest Bikini Bodies of 2013

10 Jun

Well we are finally into the real Summer months and we still aren’t seeing sunny results! All this depression from cloudy days to sad news stories to real-life boy trouble – I can’t believe what a non-starter this year has been! NEVER one to be down for long, I’ve solved my issues…I’ve booked my Summer holiday to the one and only…

ibiza rocksYes, as predictable as Ibiza sounds you may all be surprised to know that I’ve never been before! Hearing SO much about this crazy Balearic Island, I’ve decided to pop this said cherry and take the Ibiza plunge…

Of course booking a holiday doesn’t just come with palpitations of excitement and anticipation…it also carries a certain amount of pressure – especially in the looks department! I’ve been getting sharp hits of inspo from some of my fave, sexy celebs to get me workin’ out – check out this kinky lot:

britters

Mmm! Britney is smokin’ in this turquoise bikini! Pictured at a Californian resort last week this is living proof that working out and going hard pays off…She always has a stunner of a belly bar in, too! I need to get on the blingin’ belly button band wagon! < SO much alliteration…please don’t applaud the genius while she’s typing… 😉

This may be the hottest selfie EVER taken! Made In Chelsea star Millie Mackintosh whacked a few summery snaps on her Instagram page which were taken…in ENGLAND! Yayy for our brief stint in the sun! According to Look Magazine she counts on Pilates to get her super flat, super toned, super delicious bod.

abi clarke

This little devil is Abi Clarke. I briefly saw her on The Only Way is Marbs (DON’T JUDGE ME I WAS FLICKING THROUGH THE CHANNELS!) and was actually more fixated on her fit friend, Jasmine – who, by the way, won Miss Marbs or whatever that ghastly pageant was – BUT as far as I’m concerned, Abi is the sexiest of the two as she has some booootiful curves and is rockin’ such amazing swimwear! Need this suit in my life!!

angela

Sooo…Angela Simmons has also been takin’ sexy selfies in her hotel room – albeit back in March. Expect this sort of thing from me – live from Ibiza. Probably more blurry.

rita

LAWD HAVE MERCY. Rita Ora has the world’s most perfect arse. Nuff said…

I’m guessing you catch my drift?! If I keep staring at all of these pictures for long enough it may get me up and moving! I started the 30-day squat challenge today, as well as the sit-up challenge as well as receiving the Bun & Thigh Wave exercise machine. Oh…and the dog is appreciating these new power walks…WATCH THIS SPACE FOLKS!

Where are you all going this year?! What’s your workout?! Tweet me @sheldan2207

Twinspiration

30 May

I’ve been watching Tia & Tamera on Style channel (in the UK) and literally can’t get over how flawless they both are, inside and out!

I have a lot of catching up to do but I’m so far up to the point where Tamera has just given a motivational speech to 1,000 young women at a university (she is still without child) and Tia just wrapped on a movie and is taking baby Cree to sign classes.

Putting the emotional therapy sessions and hilarious antics of the ‘Sister, Sister’ actresses aside, the dynamic duo always look so beautiful, too, and I want to find out how I can shop their look here in the UK.

tia and tamera

On a stroll out in the sunshine with the little pooch, Tia and Tamera look equally as stunning but in two very different styles. Searching online, here are my carbon copies:

 

tia and tam hi st.

1] Yellow Julia Box Pleat Sleeveless Skater Dress – £12 Boohoo.com

2] Leather Plait Detail Gladiator Sandals – £30 Barratts

3] Authentic Wash Slim Jeans – £50 Rihanna for River Island

4] Market T – £12.95 Gap

5] Lauren by Ralph Lauren Cardigan – £100 House of Fraser

Not only do Tia and Tamera’s clothes always shine, but so do their perfectly made faces! Luckily for us Style Network already interviewed Tia on her go-to items and these were her beauty picks:

[ READ THE STYLE NETWORK INTERVIEW WITH TIA  – CLICK HERE]

“I like to wear mascara, just the regular Maybelline in the pink and green tube. It’s  not expensive. A great mascara always makes me look bright when I’m feeling  tired.”

£4.99 – Available at Boots – Click HERE to buy

Maybelline-Great-Lash-Mascara

“I have an amazing vitamin C skin booster from Murad. Whenever  I feel like I look exhausted or tired, I just apply it and my skin just glows.”

Murad products are available at FeelUnique.com – Click HERE to shop for Murad

Tamera has thankfully been interviewed by Curly Nikki and this is what she had to say about her natural hair styles:

[READ THE WHOLE ARTICLE AT CURLYNIKKI.COM – CLICK HERE]

“I was born with very, very curly hair.  And as a kid I didn’t know any different. I was just like, okay, this is my hair.  I never noticed that other girls had straight or wavy hair, it was just my hair and I liked it.”

“I love Terax Creama Hair Conditioner and the entire Komenuka Bijin
line.  These are all sulfate and paraben free products that are helping me pamper my curls.”

Terax Creama Conditioner is available on Amazon for £44 – CLICK HERE

SO as shopping for celeb style goes, this feels like a valiant effort! Not only can us UK fans dress like them but we can also cop their beauty look, too!

Not too shabby for Shelby..

Who do you all have style crushes on right now?!

Cara Cokes Up!

6 May

She’s used to everyone bitchin’ about her brows, not her nose…

cara d

For someone who allegedly drops a bag of cocaine on the floor in front of a million paps, Cara Delevigne seems in HIGH spirits as she jets to the US from Heathrow today (had to be done…)!

Taking after the one and only Kate Moss in more ways than one, Cara was returning home from a night of hard partying with her one and only wifey, Rita Ora when the little bag of white powder casually falls out of her handbag.

According to a source speaking to the Daily Mail Cara ‘very discreetly put her foot on it and then rolled her handbag across so it looked like she was just kind of bending over.”

It seems H&M are suitably unimpressed with Clumsy Cara saying, “We  have a zero tolerance policy towards  drugs, and  this also forms part of our advertising policy. Our team will evaluate the evidence over the  next few days. If the story is true, then we will take action.”
