DENIM BOILER SUIT – FIRST EDITION…

Boiler suits are just the dream. The effortless style, while feeling comfortable is heavenly. Denim is one of my favourite materials for the Spring months, denim will forever be a classic. This boiler suit is boyish and slouchy in an elegant way; juxtaposed with rose gold stilettos gives a luxe yet relaxed look perfect for a smart casual evening out. The blue wash of the denim is perfect with just enough distressing to keep the boiler suit smart enough for most occasions.  The cut of the pants are relaxed for comfort but keep an on-trend look with a feminine edge. I favour the way masculine fashion paired with feminine statement pieces somehow give a sultry effect.

STELLA McCARTNEY LIP PHONE CASE

phone9phonephone-4phone3phone7

Stella McCartney’s unconventional style nevertheless conveys modern chic. Graduating Central St Martins with a fashion degree ensured her a colossal future in design. I enjoy a browse through the Stella McCartney website, always being infatuated by the exclusive phone case designs. On a visit to London I spied a Fashionista with an uber-cool phone case, which I discovered was an incredible Stella McCartney design; oversized lips in a bright red. I knew I had to buy this quirky design. I bought the light pink colour – it possesses the girly edge which I idolise, while the oversized lip shape grabs attention. Not only does the case safeguard me against smashing my phone, it is merely impossible to misplace it and it is most definitely a conversation piece!

FITNESS FEVER

New years resolutions… no one ever sticks to them! Keeping fit is a love of mine, I’ve danced since the age of three and I love the odd intense workout and my new found passion is spinning. I attended my first class around December and honestly I can say it is the most intense form of exercise I have come across…burning 525-625 calories per 45 minute session. It is a great way for me to keep fit with my tight schedule. H&M have released yet another fab workout range called ‘Beyond Sport’ this range is stunning aesthetically. The two outfits I bought are the grey/black/white sports tights with the matching grey/black/white sports bra and the dark blue/powder pink sports tights with again the matching dark blue/powder pink sports bra. The sports tights have pull in and waist shape technology making you feel supported. The sports bra has a great fit and feels well supported especially for a high intensity work out such as spinning. The sports gear makes me feel confident allowing me to work out in comfort while feeling stylish.

LULU GUINNESS DIARY 2017

As you all probably already know I am totally in love with Lulu Guinness designs – especially the stationery. To accompany my notes journal I got for Christmas I bought this 2017 diary in my attempt to become a super organised person this year… I have to say my favourite aspect of this dairy is the personalisation.

Each section of the diary includes a ‘title page’ with a Lulu pattern; red and white lips, black and white stripes and plain red each with a subtitle giving an insight into the forthcoming pages.

One of the opening pages is for personal details – a space to write your name, telephone number etc. alongside the quirky ‘favourite lipstick colour’ section – the perfect section in case the diary is misplaced.

The following pages include a ‘Year At A Glance 2017’ showing month blocks which you can circle or highlight. The next section ‘Month At A Glance 2017’ gives a miniature calendar for each month, labelled with the date and day of the week for easy planning.

Following this is the ‘Week At A Glance 2017’ giving each day with a date and a space to write, as well as a notes page on the right side of the double spread for extra notes and information. You can also enter contact details so it is an ideal tool for when you are out and about to record all those important new business connections.

One of the most unique points of the diary is the notes and doodles pages; the pages leave space for random doodles, a shopping list, a to-do list, International dialling codes and 2017 National Holidays. These elements – especially the last two pages – are cultural and global. The front cover is undoubtedly chic and stylish; the perfect handbag accessory for an organised fashionista. The black and white striped string ensures that you can keep your place in the month within the diary.

GREY FUR GILLET

One of my favourite Winter pieces at the moment is this grey fur gilet. The luxury feel and aesthetic of the fur spices up the plainest of outfits. Grey plays an essential part in my Winter pallet; grey is one of my favourite’s alongside black, cream and red – the perfect shades for the winter closet. Here I have paired the fur gilet with my white shirt dress with statement cuffs and my berry red thigh high velvet boots – giving off a total fashion vibe. The gilet would perfectly compliment an all black outfit also, crafting a très chic look.
