3 bloggers that changed my life

In the last decade Fashion blogs have exploded, with more and more online websites set up every single day. Since the day that I came to know and love the online fashion community there are some who have and always will inspire me. From their uniqueness to their strong sense of self- these bloggers or should I say online Curators have , unknown to themselves, truly inspired me.

The following list showcases some of my favourite fashion and beauty bloggers:

Stella’s Wardrobe

One of my first ever blogs that I came across on the inter-web.Stella Kattermann, a creative and social media manager, grabs audiences with her unique and approachable style. In my opinion, she has not changed her goals or content to fit with the latest online trends through out the years. That is what I truly admire about her ; she has always put out content that I love and I believe that I will continue to love. Continue reading “3 bloggers that changed my life”

Mr Nietzsche in the convenience store (Review)

Salut mes amis !

Weeks have gone past since I have been able to sit done and indulge without feeling the guilt that comes with procrastination. However, I did manage to complete a whole drama during my procrastination sessions which ,if I may add, is very impressive.

Mr Nietzsche in the convenience store is a Japanese drama that seems to be at the top of the Must see list this Spring. To be honest, I never knew that such brilliance existed until it buzzed into all my social media platforms and ,as you do, I decided to follow the crowd. I am pleased to say that Mr Nietzsche in the convenience store was far better than I expected.

Brand Highlight: Leighton Denny

Salut mes amis !

After receiving Leighton Denny nail polishes last Christmas I  became curious about the brand and what the nail polish offers. As a nail fanatic I was delighted to hear that the brand actually care about the condition of our nails and sell many products to aid our nail needs .IMG_4430[1]

The award winning brand was founded, yes you guessed it, by Leighton Denny himself . The beauty expert  has spent most of his years in the beauty industry and knows exactly what we want . Each nail polish is roughly £11 each but believe me they are worth the price . They last pretty well on my nail polish resistant hands (about 3-4 days) but the real price is in the quality of the products . You only need one coat of the nail polish for it to be fully opaque!

I absolutely love what Leighton Denny has created and I can’t wait to see what else he has for us .

Oaffing around with Lazy Oaf

cropped-wp_20141217_0015

To quote myself  “Lazy Oaf is a graphic fashion label founded by Gemma Shiel , who after leaving University with a degree in textile design and screen printing began making t-shirts and selling them on a market stall. . This eventually turned into turning it into a business (an amazing business). Read more about it here.”

Salut mes amis!

Lazy Oaf is a brand that I have been acquainted with for a few years now . They are visually inspiring and weirdly brilliant . They have recently released a collaborative collection with internet sensation “Don’t Hug me I’m Scared”. With previous collaborations being absolutely amazing I was really excited to witness what genius creations Lazy Oaf have been up to . If I do say so myself they did not disappoint !

3 ways to add your inner princess to your look

Salut mes amis !

Like most people I grew up (and I am still growing up ) surrounded by Disney and inevitably Disney princesses . I absolutely love Disney princesses and sometimes I want to copy their style without looking like a creepy 15 year old in a Halloween costume. So  enjoy my 3 looks inspired by a childhood favourite :

1.Mulan  

I still refuse to accept Mulan as a true Disney princess but she is still one of my favourite characters ever ,so it would be wrong not to add her in .

“Mulan is a loving girl who is always brave and bold. When her country needs it most, she disguises herself as a man and goes off to fight. She uses courage and determination to win the day.” – Disney

I call this look : A-part from the Men (get it , because she dressed up as a man … oh forget it)

2. Pocahontas

One of my main reasons why I love the Pocahontas movies is to do with the music , I could sing along to the songs everyday and not get bored of them .

“Pocahontas loves nature, and she spends her time exploring the land. After she falls in love with a man named John Smith, it’s up to her to discover her destiny and bring peace to her people.” –Disney

I call this : In tune with the wind

3. Belle

Sweet ,Sweet Belle – enough said.

“Belle’s name means beauty, but she often stands out in town because she loves to read. She dreams of adventure in the great wide somewhere and believes there is good in everyone, even the Beast.” – Disney

I call this look : A sweet adventure

Summer nail trends 2015

Salut mes amis!

It has been a long time since I have done a nail inspiration post ; but here is my Summer nails trends (2015 edition ) .

1. Natural glitter

This is one trend that I have loved trying this summer. Glitter on bare nails is so simple yet so glam at the same time . Why not try this as your last minute nail look this summer!

2. Pale glam

This is very similar to the trend above but it is a mixture of glitter and a base colour.



3. I’ve got the blues


4. Negative space

Yes , this trend just seems to not want to go away ;with more and more adaptions for it growing everyday!


Thank you for reading, I hope that you gained some nail inspiration 🙂 .

4 ways to reinvent Sports Luxe

Salut mes amis !

Sports luxe ,one of the most prominent trends around this season an
d last . Many blogggers have adapted this trend to suit their own style as designers cut & paste some sports luxe elements into their designs . All this created a reinvention of the track suit trend, something new but also borrowed from the past . Let’s face it our world is fitness based right know and I don’t mind joining them if I can look good trying to look good .

Before the looks are revealed we need to decide what our staple piece will be (every look virtually has one). For today we have an Atlanta Braves wool fitted hat from Fanatics.

About the company: Fanatics is an online retailer of licensed sports apparel and merchandise, formed in 1995 and headquartered in Jacksonville, Florida.

New Era Atlanta Braves Classic Wool 59FIFTY Fitted Hat Navy Blue

I’m not one for a baseball hat but I actually love this one , maybe it is the simplicity of the logo or the red + black combination ; either way Fanatics have loads of hats and sports clothing  to mix and match and create the perfect sports luxe look .  I think we are almost ready to unleash the looks ; here is my reinvention of the Sports Luxe looks : (Click on the first look for a slideshow)
