Valentines wish list <3

valentines wishlistHave you been playing cupid for your friends recently or dropping hints of what you want to the boyf? Well most probably because the lovey dovey 14th of February is very much around the corner. And if you aren’t with someone-  why not treat YOURSELF to a cheeky shopping spree.

Anyways I decided to drop my hints a bit more obviously with this cheeky wishlist I created of all the gifts I wouldn’t mind receiving this valentines day. These wishlist gifts are also my dream wardrobe at the minute (items that are currently in my online shopping basket that I’m waiting to afford to splurge on!)

The slip dress: I have wanted a cami dress for ages but they always seem to be too long on me- being 5ft 3 is never an advantage for buying clothes. Firstly you can’t always reach the items you want to try on and secondly even the smallest sizes are too small. That’s why I am very grateful petite collections were invented.

The scarf: I have a huge love for thick and chunky scarfs, especially when we are currently experiencing weather like one of the ‘wettest Januarys on record’. I just love having fluffly scarfs to keep you cosy and also brighten up or add something extra to an outfit.

The bowler hat: Ok putting this item on my wishlist was a bit of a gamble because in all honesty I don’t reckon I would suit one but I just think say are sooooo damn cute! I haven’t actually been brave enough to try one on yet, I think because I am embarrassed too incase people look at me and think, ‘you look like a wannabee Kate Moss!’ Which I guess is true because I do wish I could pull off everything she does!

The nail polish: I’m always painting my nails a new color, often to match my mood or outfit. The current trend is the nude shade and Barry M is one of my fave makes, so I really want to get my hands a bottle and test out the color on my nails.

The heels: Omg aren’t these shoes just to die for! Not like I’d have any room whatsoever to fit these beuties on my shoes rack (I designed it to look like Sarah Jessica-Parker’s in Sex & The City!) but I would find an even better place for them. I’m just in love and I keep picturing different outfits to pair them perfectly with!

The statement necklace: I am a statement necklace addict but my excuse for one more to add to my collection is that I haven’t got a summery pink one yet and coral is my absolute favourite color ever. It just makes me feel happy and think of the lovely hot and sunny weather!

The other dress: I saw this dress and I thought what an absolute bargain, I want it! Forever 21 always have such lovely clothes and at mega bargain prices!!

The bag: Ok this was really cheeky but ever since I laid eyes on this Michael Kors handbag I just could not stop picturing putting my purse and phone inside and carrying it around with me proudly on my arm. I love the tan colour in it too and when I get paid I might just have to treat myself!

The GORGEOUS Grammys

The Grammys looked a very glamorous one this year- everyone looked phenom!

Watching YouTube clips and writing reports on the Grammy Awards made me wish I was there just to see all the beautiful dresses and hair and make-up in person.

From glittering gowns to Pharell’s famous hat many celebrities shone on the red carpet but a top five caught my eye:

5. Miranda Lambert

Miranda didn’t even look close to reaching her fiftees in this gorgeous red floor-length Pamella Roland gown.

4. Rita Ora

I was particularly loving Rita’s curly hair-do. Her lush ankle-strapped heels were a great pair with her metallic dress.

3. Nicole Trunfio

Didn’t she look fab in that Nicholas Oakwell floor-length dress?! I could only dream about pulling that dress of as well as she has.

2. Taylor Swift

I absolutely adored Taylor’s Gucci dress. She looked so classy- her figure looked fab and you can never ever go wrong with a bit of sparkle on the red carpet.

1. Beyonce

The sheer white Michael Costello gown could not have looked as amazing on anyone else other than Queen Bey. Who would have thought this sexy lady was once pregnant!

The steamy opening performance of Drunk On Love with hubby Jay-Z was hard not to have on repeat for a day- she just looked incred!

I’m an ASOS Insider whoop whoop

ImageImage

On Thursday I found out some amazing news- ASOS emailed me to say I had been accepted as an ASOS Insider and today I received these cute gifts in a little package sent to my home.

In a cute box filled with mini stars, I found a  hand-written note, a notepad, a fortune cookie and some ASOS sunglasses.

I am so excited to be welcomed into the #AccessAllASOS family and I can’t wait to meet other people who love fashion as much as me. I am so buzzing to be invited to the first ASOS insider-only event- maybe I will get to try on ASOS clothes or get a sneak peak of the Spring/Summer 2014 collection.

Eeek exciting times.

Purchase of the day!

Purchase of the day!

I am loving my new kimono at a bargain price of just £16. I did not expect to find this cheeky number on my casual weekly food shop at Asda, so I just couldn’t resist throwing it in the trolley.

I love my black and white kimono from H&M but this colorful one with tassels is just as perfect for a Spring/Summer style, chucked over a bikini, as it is pairing with skinny jeans in this winter weather. The tassel trend makes it a fab item to add to your festival rucksack checklist too.

Kimono- £16 George at Asda. Not bad eh?!

Statement necklace heaven!

Since moving to London I’ve been doing a hell of a lot of shopping. If you are looking for a statement necklace or have an addiction to them like myself, then have a look around Spitalfields Market in Shoreditch- so many lovely fashion and accessory items to add to your wardrobes.

A new biography marked Kate Moss’ 40th birthday

A new biography marked Kate Moss' 40th birthday

The British and beautiful supermodel doesn’t look a day old after turning the big 40 last week.

She wore her famous leopard print coat and a can’t-go-wrong little black dress to celebrate her 40th birthday is style and with a bunch of other famous and gorgeous celebs around her.

The book explores the highs and lows of Moss’ supermodel career, life on the catwalk, her celebrity relationships along with hundreds of photos of style queen.

We all can’t wait to get my hands on this.

My first week at ITN studios working with ITV News

On January 13 I pretty much grew up. I am now living in the big city of London and am working as a Digital Journalist for the ITV News website. I was so lucky to have been offered the apprenticeship for the year and apparently out of about 1000 people, what is that all about?

A cute studio on Holloway Road is where i’m currently living, and yes that is the road where a couple of scenes in Luther were filmed. Remember, in that weird shaped modern-looking building? I say this because I was quite excited when I found out. I got pretty addicted to the programme and ended up finishing all three of the Luther series in one week! With my new job, maybe I could grab an interview with the director and beg him to make a fourth series.

I’ve already met some lovely people, got my own desk in the newsroom, found stories and published some reports for the site. I still can’t quite get my head around the fact that some of the copy I’ve written is actually on the ITV News website.

I am so excited for the year ahead!

Oh and my director, Tom Hill, from uptospeed had a lovely message for me on his own uptospeed blog.
