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

– 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!

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.

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:

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:

“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.”

“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.”

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?!

KardashianЖKollection – The Dorothy Perkins Preview

30 Aug

I would like to say a swift THANK YOU to Dotty P’s for getting us even more Keen for this Kollection to arrive! On their Style HQ blog [  http://blog.dorothyperkins.com/style-hq/2012/08/kardashian-kollection-your-sneak-peek.html  ] they released behind the scenes snaps from the exclusive Kardashian Kollection preview last week…

Hold your breath:

How’s your wishlist coming along?

Kardashian Kollection FINALLY Gets To The UK!

13 Aug

I   COULD   DIE

Literally trying my best not to FUREAK OUT but I just saw on Khloé’s Facebook page that Kardashian Kollection is here!!!

Kim, Kourtney and Khloé have teamed up with Dorothy Perkins to bring their clothing line over to the UK as early as Autumn this year. FINALLY I don’t have to pay more for shipping than the actual product!

Being such a hardcore fan-girl over in the UK is difficult, especially when everyone you fawn over are exclusive to the US! So I’m soooo excited that this is happening!

Khloé released this statement on her website earlier today;

“I am beyond excited to finally be able to share this exciting news with my dolls overseas — my sisters and I are launching Kardashian Kollection at over 250 Dorothy Perkins stores across the UK! WOOOOHOOOOOOOO! This is a huge step for us and for our line and we could not be happier about it. I am literally counting down the minutes until I get to make my very first visit to the UK and meet some of our fabulous fans there :)”

Credit cards nationwide will be getting a battering come Autumn!

xx Peace xx

4th Of July Tribute Blog!

5 Jul

Even though I reside in the United Kingdom I’ve been getting the itch lately. Ever since my 3-week tour of America back in 2010 I often get these overwhelming urges to just pack up and get back there even just for a few days.

However, this is financially impossible for me right now so instead I spend my time fantasising and planning future trips! What I’ve been LOVING lately is all of the patriotic apparel trending both sides of the pond. In the UK we’ve just had the Diamond Jubilee, we are currently hosting Wimbledon as usual and we are busy putting together the finishing touches for the 2012 London Olympics so I expect every British person rocking the Union Jack in some way this summer! Some celebs have jumped on the bandwagon proving that it’s super-stylish to be proud of your country!

UK reality star Ollie Locke is known for his patriotic style;

National Treasure Kate Moss poses in her Union Jack blazer;

& young Willow Smith kills it with these Union Jack leggings;

But nothing really brightens my day more than receiving a pair of American Flag espadrilles on the morning of the 4th of July; INDEPENDENCE DAY!

I couldn’t have planned it better myself, but, YES there they were in all their glory, on my feet this very morning! Thank you www.chockers.com!

At only £10 these are the steal of the month and have set me off on an American style voyage;

How far can I take this style though? Well I could keep it simple like Kylie Jenner and bust out some super-short-shorts;

 

Go skimpy a la Rosie Huntington-Whiteley;

Or just over-kill it just like Katy Perry, Solange and Ke$ha!

Oooh dear, that’s not Ke$ha’s best look ever, mind you, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen Ke$ha dressed at a socially acceptable level. Anyway, the point is being patriotic can be sexy, trendy and most importantly fun! It’s colourful and screams P R I D E so everyone should hop on board! My favourite suppliers of such apparel are obviously Chockers shoes (see link above),

HAPPY SHOPPING, HAPPY TRENDING AND HAPPY 4TH OF JULY BLOGGERS!
