Can technology and fashion unite?

When visiting a new Country, I always like to experience everything new, whether that be trying new foods or visiting new places. I am currently in Rome for a few months and this has allowed me to really explore the City and find some hidden gems. So in a way, what I’m going to write [...]

Indeed, they say fashion [...]

Dare To Bare? Jaimie Did!

            Too much chest? Too much leg? This has always been a dilemma for many women around the world but luckily for me, I always had my mum to guide me in the right direction and remind me that some things were better left to the imagination. This was obviously [...]

Winter Boots

While some may be irate over the falling temperatures, I look forward to the changing seasons. Some ladies prefer laying on the beach in flip flops and flats but, when the weather becomes chillier, I look forward to modeling my attractive scarves, beanies, blazers and, of course, my boots! To make sure you have the [...]

Primark Proves Its Worth

Despite Leeds bursting with culture, I’ve convinced myself yet again that shopping is the only way to pass the time and this week I found myself with a few hours spare rummaging through the rails at Primark. Primark or Primani to a few is best known for their affordable fashion on a budget and although [...]

Autumn Attire

I hate the cold weather, dull, dark and dreary, it’s not something I particularly welcome. But you know what they say, every miserable grey cloud has a silver lining…. that being the excuse to buy more clothes of course! Whilst I don’t like the weather I do love the autumn/winter fashion, burgundy, deep fiery colours, [...]

Everyone Needs A Muse

I have a shameful secret…until recently I didn’t like fashion. Well, perhaps not as strong as didn’t ‘like’ but certainly didn’t ‘get’. I was the girl who would feign family duties, lack of cash or even a smear test to get out of a shopping trip with friends. I didn’t understand why girls – in [...]

You may not like shopping very much and when it comes to shopping for accessories…well, it may just not be as interesting as shopping for things like electronics, books or sporting equipment!

GRUNGE + MATHEMATICS = UNIF

Many moons ago, when I first began filling those fleeting moments of spare time with the inspiring and delightful act of trawling through page after page of hip ‘n’ trendy fashion blogs, I discovered a blog called ‘Christeric’ and the blogger behind it – Christine. When I first unearthed this visual sartorial treat, I was [...]

The Party Season Countdown!

It’s mid-September. The last quarter of the year is almost upon us. October, November, December – my three favourite months for various reasons, including Christmas cheer, cosy hot drinks and of course, it’s party season.

HEAVY DUTY: THE ‘BLOKE COAT’

Luckily for us British island dwellers, (British being the operative word) a dominant outerwear trend featuring on the Fall/Winter 2013 catwalks is considerably heavy duty. This year, we will have no reason to fearfully dodge the blistering cold and bitter winds of winter because fortunately, the principal coat style of Fall/Winter 2013 is big and blokey. [...]

Browsing Through History

Full yet effortlessly groomed eyebrows perched above large doe eyes dominated Audrey Hepburn’s signature look. It wasn’t just her symmetrical beauty and deep heron eyes that her eloquently arched brows represented; it was her strong presence in a post-war world of class mobility and a burgeoning popular youth culture, where she was she was able [...]
