Toxic Relations

We have either been in a bad relationship or have known of others who have. A toxic relationship leaves most unhappy and feeling as though the world is on their shoulders. Most, probably all, relationships will go through bad patches and it is more than likely couples will argue. However, these arguments should not leave [...]

Olympic Shoes

Charlotte Olympia Dellal, a Cordwainers graduate, launched her namesake footwear label in 2006. The half-Brazilian, half-English designer’s creations are inspired by the glamour of the 1940s, and all ooze a uniqueness.   Her heels range from animal printed to fruit inspired platforms, suede and a variety of colours, themes and textures.   Her statement making [...]

RESPECT

Gaining respect in a relationship is a must. It concludes how your partner will treat you and more importantly, how you feel about yourself.   Ultimately, a partner cannot truly love you if they do not respect you, thus you cannot truly love yourself if you let another person disrespect you.   In order to [...]

Mulberry Spring Scarves

I am in lust with Mulberry at the moment, especially after covering their Spring/Summer 2012 collection for our very own Manchester Fashion Week.   Currently on trend are their lightweight scarves that are ideal for this weather we are experiencing. The scarves are perfect  being light enough for Spring and can add intrigue to an [...]

Mulberry SS12 at Manchester Fashion Week 2012

Mulberry Spring/Summer 2012 is visited by the British seaside this year.  Think of your memories of visiting the seaside as a child. If you imagine ice-cream, candy floss and candy cane stripes then you are on the right path. The campaign is inspired by Mulberry’s creative director Emma Mill’s and is styled by Edward Enninful. [...]

Dana Lorenz Spring/Summer 2012 Jewellery Collection

Over-sized rings, magpie attracting earrings, armour-esque necklaces and tough cuffs, I own almost every piece of costume jewellery going.   This infatuation is beginning to get out of control however, and at times I do scare myself. Needless to say I have found another collection of jewellery to fall hopelessly in love with that goes [...]

Wardrobe Malfunction

My wardrobe was starting to get rather cluttered I noticed. I reached and pulled out a jacket that I had not worn since I was in my teens! With a grim expression I decided to dedicate my afternoon to sorting out my wardrobe.   Jeans that were too big, jackets that no longer suited my [...]

Perfection Lost

When it came to the opposite sex I always thought that I had to appear perfect, make-up done immaculately, hair brushed without a strand out of place and teeth always gleaming. Little did I realise it was when I thought I was not perfect that I would actually be at my most, well, perfect.   [...]

Introducing Alejandro Ingelmo

When it comes to shoes I think only a certain amount of us will only ever understand their significance. Some men seem to think it inappropriate that we own over fifty pairs of shoes, and never seem to understand the importance of defining the difference between sandals, wedges, peep-toes, court shoes and stilettos!   Spring/Summer [...]

A Different Shade of Blue

‘Feeling blue’ seems to have a whole new meaning this spring/summer 2012. No longer will it be associated with sad moods but with striking colours that would even put a peacock to shame!   Spring is inviting the Mediterranean and cobalt blues, as well as the aqua’s and navy’s to bring a sense of freshness [...]

Living In The Past

It is sometimes easier going backwards for some, rather than taking the more healthy approach and moving forward. Many of us tend to go round in a cycle of going back to an ex, leaving them and returning once more.   I myself have never been one to go back to an ex or a [...]

Loud Statement Rings

When it comes to jewellery I am anything but subtle, in this case, less is not always more. I love wearing chunky chains, having rings adorn my fingers and wearing earrings that are big enough to rival the great Pat Butcher.   One of the looks for this year is again going to be tribal, [...]

A Tough Nut To Crack

It is as though I walk around with armour, a bullet proof vest or a brick wall, maybe even all three combined.   When it comes to opening up in a relationship, my thoughts and words get tangled and my heart races hard. It seems to be the most difficult obstacle to overcome. You hope [...]

Winter Survival

A dark sky, the sound of rain or the crazy wind usually greets me every morning, I am just waiting for the snow now!   Long gone are those warm, sunny days where the sun shone down on us, we will not be seeing that for quite a few more months! With that said, why [...]

Loving Yourself

Before contemplating a serious relationship with another person, I believe you have to have a healthy relationship with yourself first. In all fairness I think it is okay, to an extent, for a person to love themselves without being too big headed about it!   You have to love yourself before you learn to love [...]

Questioning Fur

Witnessing anti-fur protestors on King Street (Manchester) recently made me think more about the ethics of wearing real fur, and whether or not it was okay to see celebrities such as Jennifer Lopez, Keira Knightley or Kate Moss parade around in dead animals.   For me personally, fake fur has always been the right answer, [...]

Shattered Mirror

Like a mirror, once trust is broken it is never the same again. No matter how many times you try your best to fix it, you will never see a clear image.   That is why so many people find trusting their partner so difficult and at times scary, as no one wants their trust [...]

When Heels Became a Must

I have been wearing heels since the age of sixteen, which is nine years in total. I can remember my first ones, a dark fuchsia in satin material with a strap around the ankle, worn to a family christening. It seems since that day, heels have been glued to my feet whenever there has been [...]

The Gentleman and The Lady

I am in love with old fashioned romance! The days where men use to open doors for women, surprise them with flowers and chocolates and make an effort to connect intellectually.   I cannot help but feel that many women are lacking the gentleman, the man who would go to any lengths in order to [...]

Jewelled Clutch Bags

It is always easy making a statement in a dress for Christmas, however, this winter I also want to be remembered for my accessories, especially my little clutch bag.   Jewelled clutches are anything but subtle, they stand out, represent Hollywood glamour and catch the envy of nearly every woman. Whilst browsing online I came [...]
