Rio Ready Nails from Elegant Touch


Elegant Touch have a couple o' limited edition nails to make even the stubbiest and ugly looking hands (like my own) look somewhat presentable. To celebrate all things Rio Olympics Elegant Touch have a v. festive, colourful and crazy duo of nails out this summer. Brightly coloured and in your face prints they sum up the energy of Rio really well. Well as well as a pair of nails actually can.

The blue and tropical print of the Rio Ready ones reminds me of a dress that I had a couple of summers ago from Zara. It's legit the same concept and colours with the clash of prints... you could say Elegant Touch ripped off Zara for a change. None the less the two go together really well considering they are supposed to be clashing prints. 

Other others are not quite to my taste as a set of nails because they are super duper print heavy. However as an accent nail complimenting a bright plain set of nails it'd be pretty sassy.

The nails themselves are almond shape which isn't my personal favourite shape for nails as I prefer a more shorter square look. However that can be achieved with a bit of effort and a nail file. I adore Elegant Touch nails as they are super thin and  not heavy or hard to wear. As someone who loves false nails they are pretty much faultless. 10/10.

Flow Festival

CELINE shoes

CHLOE sunglasses

Flow Festival, or as we know it - the sweet Finnish festival that can’t be missed, the last stretch of our Nordic summer. The epic and infamous three day extravaganza took place last weekend, and this year I had the pleasure of experiencing it with Zalando. The online store has been big on the festival scene this season. Big enough to host their very own scene in the form of their very own Zalando Factory.

On deliberating what to wear, it occurred to me that hardly anything would look out of place at this city festival. Even a white shirt and jeans would work, so that’s what I did. A festival version of course - crocket replaced crispy cotton, with again relying on a oversized sleeve. With the opportunity of some flower embroidery on my jeans, how could I not? This is coming from someone that owns both a designer and a high-street version, needless to say, you better have some sticker-type patches on your jeans this year. The selection that we are being offered is already too big to choose from, so channel your inner 70’s/80’s kid before we get all serious and with the fall wardrobe.  

On day two I brought a little bit of darkness with some dramatic floor length florals, that seems to still be my favourite festival get up. As fun as a jumpsuit but way more practical, a factor that is underrated at festivals…

But so another successful Flow festival is over. Satisfied over the gourmet food that once again outdid itself - This weekend is a foodies day dream. You can literally have a wheatgrass shot in between your every cider, just the fact of knowing this already reduces the hangover. Happy about the amazing memories I made with my loved ones, some while dancing to Sia’s beautiful performance, some while tasting my way though the drink stands - no wheatgrass shots in sight.

See you next year sweet Flow Festival.

Style Update: The perfect little white dress

If we're talking addictions, I have a big one when it comes to little white dresses. They are the perfect summer style solution when you're in a hurry, need to throw something on and be out the door looking stylish and ready for warm weather in a jiffy. 

Last month I came across one of my favorite little white dresses in H&M... of all places! This breezy number was screaming my name from the window. I ran in and bought two. I told you I had a problem. It fits perfectly, has great balloon sleeves that are all the rage this season and it's incredibly comfortable for travel. Enough said!

Shop Waiting on Martha
If you've been following blogs for a while, you'll be very familiar with the American blog that is Waiting on Martha. I am, in fact, obsessed. So when the blogging superstar opened her online shop - Shop Waiting on Martha- I nearly lost all ability to scroll.

So, I thought it was time to share my online shopping secret. You'll find everything from clever matchboxes to stationary that's truly drool worthy. Here are my 11 favorites on the site right now.

Style Update: The perfect summer bag

Ladies and gents, allow me to introduce you to one of my favorite hometown bag designers...

There's a reason these gorgeous bags are a favorite of Oprah...they are simply fabulous and perfect for travel, a day at the beach or just a run to your local grocery store. Every single place where I've carried this bag in London, I've been asked where it can be purchased, so, I thought it was about time to come out and shout about it. This neoprene necessity is available to purchase online and comes in every colour way you can imagine. Get one in now! 

Ok, so about the rest of the look. Well, you're more or less looking at a preppy moment in head to toe J Crew. You can take the girl out of the preppy southern states, but you can't take the southern states out of the girl!

Gettting Lip Fillers


I posted a video over on my Youtube Channel all about my new Lip fillers! I really hope you guys find it helpful and understand lip fillers aren't as crazy and unnatural as it seems to be presented to us. You can get natural but effective results without going too large or crazy. I think they look natural but plumped and full which I love.

You may or may not know but I got them done last year with a very minimal change but I feel like this time round I went a lot fuller than I expected to - I actually had double the amount put in compared to what I got last time! When the lady suggested it I was a bit nervous as I was letting someone I didnt know take my look and face in their hands. However I really trusted Allison (her contact info is in the down bar of the video) and she did a perfect job! While I'm pretty swollen right now I cant wait to see the finished result!

I go through the whys what and where's over in the video so if you want to know a little more in depth about them then as well as covering some points about surgery and why Im sick of people being looked down on for changing their bodies.

Watch it above or check it out over on my channel! Make sure you like & subscribe if you havent already!

French Riviera Cocktails for two in London at Tredwell's by Marcus Wareing

Finally, we have a British summer to speak of. Ok, it wasn't monumental in length and we've had heatwaves that were promised that never made their grand entrance, but I'm confident we have at least a few more days of brilliant sunshine ahead. So, let me introduce you to a cocktail option for a warm sunset or two in your future.

This is the Summer Terrace at Tredwell's by Marcus Wareing, in the heart of Soho. Blue and white nautical vibes reign supreme, with the goose being the main name of the game here. Yes, the whole French Riviera scene is sponsored by Grey Goose and the cocktails reflect a rather optimistic view of sweet summer nights ahead. Feeling peckish? There are plenty of delish nibbles on offer as well. From fried chicken to triple cooked chips, you'll find something here that will peak your interest.

The terrace is open until the start of October, so get yourself in there speedily!

To make a reservation call 0203 764 0840.
