Sweet and sizzzling summer interiors
I love décor and interior design and feel that every fashionista needs a beautiful space where she can be herself and express her sense of style. My favorite room to spruce up and make my own is my bedroom because it is the one place where we spend so much time. So why not make this our own fashionable haven. Fill it with the things you love and style it a decorative theme.

At the moment I am loving soft pops of color that inspires white floating fluffy clouds and whimsical day dreams.

Give the cold shoulder

Written by

This season loves the bardot style - the off-shoulder. Whether you're going somewhere fancy, or just hanging out with friends, there's pretty much a bardot suitable for every occasion.

The off - shoulder style is definitely flattering; but if you don't enjoy baring all shoulders and collar bone, you can opt for ones that hang on the hinges of the shoulders or the cut out styles.

Although today workout has become cool for all of us and everyone wants to be get the right body shape all the time yet most of us are unable to follow what we are required to do for regular workouts. On the other hand, being in activewear all the time provides a kind of motivation for people and forces them to follow their daily routine. Moreover, it can also be used as a casual wear at any place.

Would you be willing to work out wearing a boring and same activewear all the time? Obviously, you won’t. You need motivation not only in your mind but also with a few external motivating factors and your activewear is one of them. Wearing colorful, charming and attractive activewears will definitely allow you to keep your motivation for workout and to be in the perfect body shape. So choose a fancy activewear which has pockets or have a spare jacket while working, so you can easily put your important belongings such as money, keys and smartphone. Don’t try to text or hold your belongings while working as it will distract your attention

Cool Monochrome

Written by


So we are officially in Spring, although the weather is not playing along yet, we can look forward to, hopefully, some great summer weather. But while we are not there yet, and we are still working on our bikini bodies. HELLO!! Monochrome, one of the best styling tricks to hide those pesky areas that you are conscious of, while at the same time adding inches and making you appear leaner.

Monochrome is often associated with black or white but there are more colors that you can wear to create that elegant monochrome look. Here are my favorite 6 colors, that if chosen in the shade that compliments your skin tone, will carry you through spring and summer for all those cool monochrome looks.

Denim Blue

Cool and tranquil the perfect color for your casual street style, as we all have a denim jacket, cutoff shorts, jeans, chambray shirts, and button-down skirts in our closets.

White, the classic summer color. Although most women find it challenging to wear because the all-white shade, as it is not very flaw flattering. The trick is to pick the right fabric and to make sure that it fits your silhouette and that the design flatters your shape. So if you do have a muffin top, pair a structured vest with a dress, as the lapels of outerwear slims down your shape and defines your waist.

Grey, not always a summer color, but definitely a good choice for a slimming monochromatic look. Just be sure that the color does not drown you out so add splashes of complementing color like blueberry blue, red or fuchsia.

Nude, depending on your skin tone this is a very flattering monochrome look. But like grey it can drown you, so make sure that you pick a shade that is in contrast with your skin tone.

Love, love Hawaiian/tropical prints with its bold blooms, leafy botanical prints and vibrant colour. It reminds me of beautiful white beaches, sunny days, cocktails and the joy of island life.

The trend that was big last year is back and brands like Proenza Schouler made quite a splash on the catwalk, taking us into the equatorial jungle with their Resort 2016 collection.

My new Perfect Cleanse

Written by

It's official I have found my perfect cleanser.. Oh wait, it's meant to be for my professional kit to use on my clients before makeup application.. Hmmm I'll get another.

Last night I tested the Perfect Cleanse Omega Cleansing Jelly by Nude Skincare for the very first time, and I'm so glad I did. I really tested this product to the max, having a full face of makeup on with gel eyeliner and waterproof mascara this product needed to be pretty special to remove all that...

I squeezed the tiniest amount out of the light mauve tube onto my fingertips, a gel type jelly and spread onto my fingertips on my right hand.. I could see this tiniest amount of product suddenly expanding into what I can describe as a silky gel serum oil. I started to massage this jelly formula into my skin then BAM.. I added water to my face as you do and this jelly/serum/oil texture turned into a soft creamy milk..this tiniest amount of product covered my whole face and eyes and I felt the heavy makeup underneath melting away. I must of spent a good 3 minutes massaging my face because the product just felt so damn good on my skin!

I rinsed away with warm water and NOT to my shock all my heavy makeup had been removed. My skin was clear and felt so smooth, it didn't feel tight just soft and fresh. I quickly added some moisturiser and headed straight onto the Internet to do some research on this product.

What I found out was just as amazing...

My Perfect cleanse is rooted in so much nutrition for the skin. Containing sunflower oil, which is rich in omegas 6 & 9 it nourishes and protects the skin while gently removing dirt & impurities while the Great Burdock root Extract moisturisers the dry areas and purifies the oily areas. There's even Annato seed extract added in to strengthen and shield the skin from daily stressors.

There's so much more in this product that is fabulous for our skin as well as not containing any harmful substances.

We need good nutrients for our body why not have it for our skin also!!

Love this product.

Stage 4 Bond Jewellery & Diamonds

Written by

Stage 4 is all about the creation of the piece. Jake who I am sure you all remember hearing about in stages 1,2 & 3 but if you do not I will refresh your memory. Jake is the wonderful gentlemen who wanted to find the perfect ring for his future wife.

After Jake made the decision on what he thought to be the perfect diamond, the people at Bond could now create the piece exactly how Jake had designed it. It would be the exact image.

Bond utilise’s various techniques in their manufacturing. They ensure that the highest quality and precision standards are upheld. Where some pieces are created entirely by hand others are created utilising CAD 3D mouldings and sometimes a mixture of both, these are worked and crafted by Bond’s expert craftsmen.

Jake’s ring will be created against a CAD 3D rendering with a wax mould which will be created initially to ensure perfection. This is then created in platinum before diamonds set in the piece and all finishing and polishing is then carried out.

Thai Kosai Massage Therapy

Written by

IMG 7167 HDR sm

The weekend before last I was in London for my first Fashions Finest show so I knew I would need something to help relax me, as I was nervous.

When I arrived in London with my friend Kirsty we visited Thai Kosai for a massage. Kirsty opted for the Thai Aromatherapy Massage and I chose the Deep Tissue Massage as I suffer from backache.

The atmosphere as you enter Thai Kosai is an ambient and warm. It has a Thai themed reception area with a welcoming hostess who offered us both some herbal tea and then led us down some stairs to a hallway which continued the same Thai theme in an effective way.

Kirsty was shown to her room and I was shown to mine. I was asked to prepare for the massage and was handed a towel to place over my body after I had undressed and lay on the bed. As I lay on the bed I listened to the soft audio that played.

After a brief wait, the masseur entered the room and introduced herself then asked if the room temperature was to my liking and if so was I ready to begin?

I was more than ready every bone in my body was aching at this point. The massage was amazing and she made sure that every part of my body was taken care of. I was all I expected and more. The massage was truly enjoyable and my once achy back felt free from pain. The pressure she used to massage me was just right, not to soft but careful not to be to rough.

She was very thorough and spent a good amount of time on each problem area and I was so relaxed I nearly fell asleep a few times during the 60-minute massage. The massage is definitely worth the £90 that it will cost you.

The massage was a pleasant experience and the surroundings were beautiful, the staff there are friendly and welcoming and I would definitely recommend that you visit and see for yourself.

The slip dress, another one of the 90’s style staple pieces are back in a big way this SS16. This is a tricky item to wear and you really have to be bold to wear your slip outside the house. The trick is to make this little piece of intimate wear look like any other piece of clothing you would wear during the day. It needs to look natural but polished. If done right, it can be quite naughty and sexy!!


Try out these three looks next time you slip into your little slip!!

90’s grunge for an edgy sexy look tie a flannel shirt around your waist and complete the look with a pair of edgy boots.

What stood out to me the most about Stella&Dot is it’s universal element: you can get some ladies together across different generations and everyone will find something to their liking. The timeless qualities inherent in these pieces is the sophistication and simplicity of the gold, silver and copper colours; attractive to anyone who appreciates effortless and easy-to-coordinate jewellery.

Face Care No7 Protect and Perfect

Written by

face care 1

I love looking after my skin and using good skin care products, whether it is products I DIY from my kitchen cupboard or buy instore.
My motto is and has always been that, “beautiful skin begins with exceptional skin care”

face care 4

I recently attended a No7 skincare event where I learned a bit more about the No7 skincare range, specifically the Protect and Perfect range. This is not a range that I would have used before but after learning more about the range I was quite impressed with it.

We have all seen the television advertisements about the wonder serum that gives you younger and more radiant skin with a visible reduction in fine lines after just a few weeks of use.

face care serum

Now having received the Protect and Prefect Advance day cream, Early Defence and Protect and Prefect Intense eye creams in our goody bags. I have been using the products for about two weeks now, since the event, and am loving the it.

face care 2

And although I do not have a lot of visible wrinkles just yet, apart from fine lines around my eye area, which is a problem for many women as you enter into your mid to late 20’s. I have seen an improvement in the reduction of those fine lines around my eye area.

So if you are in your early to mid-20’s, I recommend that you invest in skin care products that works to prevent the early onset of those pesky early aging signs. “Prevention is better than cure”

After two weeks of use my skin is smoother and softer, “just as it says on the tin.” On application the products just melt into my skin and leaves no oily residue, leaving it glowing.

For me the best feature is that it has UVB SPF factor 15 plus 5 STAR UVA giving your skin greater protection from the sun and environmental stresses as you go through your day. Because it is important, especially if we want to prevent early ageing of the skin, to protect it against the sun and outside environmental factors.

These are greats products to start your anti-ageing skin care, keeping that fine lines at bay, for as long as you possibly can.

Best used in conjunction with the Protect and Perfect Advance serum and night creams available in store at Boots or online @
