Loves it

Glow-baby, Glow-baby, Glow!

Not womens wear but gorgeous never the less.


If my boyf wasn't such a typical, messy, doesn't care about 'stuff' boy I'd seriously consider getting them for him.

Finger Gloves

One of my favorite blogs is Bleach Black, they post every day and are a lot more reliable when I comes to getting your fashion fix than I have been of late *hangs head in shame*.


I was so chuffed when I saw Kristin had posted these palmless? (is that right?) leather gloves. I've wanted these for soo long, since seeing something similar on Kylie Minogue I was ecstatic to find that the Patricia Field site ships to the UK! Woo only problem now, working out what size I'll be.

Very Viv Topshop

Another Topshop designer look alike Vivienne Westwood wannabe Red Label at Topshop for a mere £35.


It doesn't look great on the mannequin but on a real person it would cling and drape in all the right places.

Topshop does Gareth Pugh

Well sort of... what do you think of Topshops Cosmic dress?


yours for £38

Be quick though they are already out of size 8 :( boo!

I couldn't believe it when I saw it as I was thinking this morning about the same shoulders but on a blazer, seeing the Balmain ones I'll never afford and that shape it a little too distinctive to replicate just yet.
Topshop if you are listening I'm hoping you'll bring out a blazer with these shoulders, and I can guarantee you, you'll have at least one customer

The most beautiful man

I need me this issue!


London Clothes Show Review

Though I did my placement the week before last, Sip kindly invited me up to the London Clothes Show Live on Friday.

I've never been to LCS before because it's normally hosted up in Birmingham and London Fashion Weekend twice a year is normally enough for me, so I was excited to see how the two would compare.

I have to say I was disappointed, this might be me being unfair as we all know with the recession etc companies aren't spending as much and are cutting back on shows, but given this even is called London Clothes Show I expected there to be . . . well, more clothes. There was loads of make up/hair and body stands

Lush's Never to busy to be beautiful
Fake Bake

London college of Beauty Therapy

It was like a giant Superdrug

From the clothing exhibitors they only brand I recognised was Religion, and they weren't selling the greatest stuff either.
Other clothing stands had some ok bits, Elegantly Waisted, a great name for a brand, but sold vintage like band tees which looked just like the amplified ones from 3 years ago, just not as good.

Lots of jewellry stands, some nice pieces but nothing that I'm looking for at the moment.
For shoes there was Steve Madden which had some great shoes but were still expensive, jewel and sparkly encrusted gladiator sandals for £65. . .erm no, not when Tk maxx will have them next summer for £24.99.

The highlight of the day for me was catching a gimps of George Lamb, I think he's lovely, and getting my Ray Bans standard classic aviators for £63, I was a bit worried about if they fake but I've done my research and they are real, which is fab because they retail at £109.

There were lots of magazines stands, if you bought company you got a range of stuff with it including a coral rimmel nail vanish, good on toes would have never bought it otherwise, green mossy rimmel eye shadow , actually nice. Sanitary towels, voucher for 20% of new look, Maybelline foundation sachet.

With Hair Ideas you got some expensive shampoo and spray worth £18, so I got that and gave it to the boyf. He loves a bit of pricey shampoo.

With another hair mag you got a can of dry shampoo, going Reading Festival this year so thought might as well.

On the way out there was a ‘free’ goodie bag which consisted of a T shirt: with clothes show live 09 written on it, I’d rather a canvas bag, a kit kat senses, a new imperial leather wash called skin bliss < it’s amazing and I will be buying again, more sanitary towels, eye drops, freederm face wash sample size, a pouch of fabric conditioner, various flyers, a foot spray and other sachets of make up/creams.

It wasn’t a bad goodie bag if you think its free but the ticket price for CSL was £32 and London fashion weekend is £15/£20. It was also a pain in the arse to get to as the tube wasn't running, If I got free tickets I’d go again but I wouldn’t pay the £32.

Sip Placement

So as I said I have been busy.


I did a placement at Sip drink which was fantastic. It definitely helped me work out what kinda of stuff I'd like to do in the future when it comes to marketing.

I'll tell you a little more about them:
Sip is a natural flavoured water, I know you think you've heard it all be for but Sip is the only drink on the market which is enriched with botanical ingredients to benefit your skin, it's all natural, there really are no nasties in it, not even preservatives and better yet
everything is sourced from the UK, green credentials check.

Now this is where I would direct you to the website but because it's not all correct, not their fault, honest.
You are better off adding them on twitter and getting some lovely tweets from Genna.
She's great, and will help you source out where to get Sip.

Something different

Is it just me or are you already bored of the washed out bleached denim thats over saturated our high street? I am.
Looking for something new I found this mesh dress from TOPSHOP.
I like it, because it kind reminds me of a line that Lip Service did, when I was going through my grungy, gothy, slutty phase, but minus rivets, bondage like straps and exposed zips.
