hallowe'en



Each year, I leave my Hallowe'en outfit 'til the very last minute. And each year finds me digging out the old cat-ears and donning a black body-leggings combo... et voila! A kitty cat! This year I tried to think of something a little more original (nothing to do with the fact my cat-ears can't be found), and went as Natalie Portman aka Black Swan. It really didn't take much effort at all, I simplified her heavy eye make-up and found a silky top and tutu and some feathers for my hair. Had I had more time I would have definitely bought myself some amazing red contacts for the added scary factor.

falling leaves

Today was a perfect autumn day, crisp air and the orangey glow of the sun. My beautiful girly Diana and I went for a walk around our secret garden and filmed some scenes for her new fashion film project. Dreamy stuff...

i'll be rockin' this b-eat

Sure, we hear all about super skinny, size zero models and celebrities in the press almost daily, and the term 'anorexic' is now just a very a widely used adjective in the fashion media. But for people who suffer from this illness, it's not one to be flung around so loosely. 

B-eat is an amazing Eating Disorders organisation who want to change the way people think and talk about eating disorders. Their vision is to improve the way services and treatment are provided and to help everyone see that the illness can be beaten.

They have just designed this pretty t-shirt exclusively for New Look!


It is such an amazing cause to support.

T-shirt's cost £8.99 with £4.50 from every sale going to the B-EAT charity.

the x-factor

One of my favourite parts about the X-factor, even more so I'd say than the cringe-worthy auditions, is the after-bootcamp make-over!!

Without fail you notice the contestants' teeth those few shades whiter, hair that bit smoother and sleeker, and since it is a multi-million pound TV show, you'd expect some show-stopping outfits too. Since (now ex-X-factor) stylist Grace Woodward got axed over some previous dodgy outfit choices, this years newcomer should find things pretty easy. Or maybe not.

I loveeeed Amelia Lily's original look and at just 16 she's obviously still experimenting, but by putting her in that pink leather jacket with the out-dated pink hair just made her look so much older trying to be young. It didn't make sense. And cute wee Janet Devlin suddenly turned into Florence Welsh/Nicola Roberts? Of course the guys all got their standard grey V-neck down to the belly-button t-shirts and don't get me started on Kitty's eye make-up....

God, the X-factor really brings out the bitch in me and my girl babes, the claws are out! Probably 'cause we may be stylish kittens but sing like drowning cats.

stella's sleepover

My beautiful and talented girl-babe Holly has just returned from Paris Fashion Week, where she was doing all the backstage workings at Stella McCartney. She met stunning models Miranda Kerr and Natalia Vodianova... very jealous! I am so proud of her though, and the show itself looked amazing- like a perfectly polished pyjama party!

wish list

I need this sequin playsuit in my life! Just imagine twirling around in this on the dance-floor in some super-high Jeffrey Campbell heels. I'm thinking perfect for a Christmas night out, which gives me time to start saving up as it's not exactly cheap... 


Playsuit, River Island, £60

playing house

The past few days have been crazy busy! I've just moved into my beautiful new flat, which unfortunately also means I've been unpacking boxes, boxes, boxes.  The last one has just been emptied though, and although my room still needs some finishing touches, I've lit a scented candle, scattered cushions and blankets on the bed, and got my favourite mug ready for a cup of tea - already feels like home sweet home <3
