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:

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?!

Zooey Deschanel & The Chapmans Have Me Telly Obsessed!

12 Aug

I’ve given myself a break from my Journalism course and since have been glued to the telly! Other than obvious faves like Keeping Up With The Kardashians and Holly’s World on ‘E!’, my TiVo has been set to record some other unlikely shows that, for some reason, I can’t get enough of!

E4’s ‘New Girl’ starring Zooey Deschanel as ‘Jess’ is a quirky 30-minute blast of awkward comedy that can quite literally have me LOL’ing into my Ben & Jerry’s! If you haven’t seen it yet get on it! US Weekly used the word ‘adorkable’ to describe the show on their website and I couldn’t have put it better myself. Not only is it a TV triumph, Jess’ style is the epitome of ‘Vintage Geek Chic’. I’ve been doing a spot of my own ‘Steal-Her-Style-ing’ trying to find bargain-ish pieces to match her look:

The £33 High Street Version of Jess’ classic skater dress outfit:

‘CeCe’ played by Hannah Simone also wears a stunner which can also be found on the UK high street too:

Love these two girls! Like chalk and cheese but make such cute BFF’s!

Another show I’m obsessed with right now, bizarrely, is Dog the Bounty Hunter!! Tim, Dog, Dog’s wife Beth and their grown-up kids Leland, Lyssa and Duane-Lee go and catch the bad guys on the Hawaii islands. That’s basically it but it’s done in that dramatic, American reality show way which just captures you and never lets you go!! It’s so addictive and often repeated all day on Sky!

I’ve heard that ‘Baby Lyssa’, Dog’s daughter, is releasing a book soon to clear up any untruths which may have surfaced when she was ‘drugged against her will’ the night she was arrested for harrassment and property damage last year. Lyssa became the youngest ever bail bondsman in Hawaii at just eighteen (she is now 25), has two little girls and has been through a ‘somehwat violent’ marriage which resulted in a ‘messy’ divorce. Looking forward to the book!! Watch this space.

So if you haven’t seen New Girl or Dog the Bounty Hunter get involved! Have you seen them? What do you think?!

I found out about Lyssa’s book via her Twitter – you can follow her too at @BabyLyssaC

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),
