Grey was always the go-to colour for classic chic handbags – but recently Orange has taken centre stage. Seen everywhere as an all season colour pop with elegance and a real sense of fun.
Perfect for the start of Spring – and working well all year……
Michael Kors Selma Saffiano Tote – £315
I love this bag with it’s generous space, clever zips and solid ladylike structure. Looks good in every light – night or day and works for both formal and casual events. The shoulder strap gives you great mobility and the bag fits well against the body – the boxy shape is just flat enough.

Have you found yourself wanting to escape the city and venture somewhere new? Well I may of just discovered a hidden little gem just perfect for that weekend getaway – The West Park Hotel in Yorkshire.
Nestled in the historic Yorkshire town of Harrogate this Award Winning elegant and spacious boutique hotel is located a high-heel stroll away from retail and spa heaven. With ten individual chic suites and 2 elegant duplex penthouses, every room has gorgeous super king-sized beds, wide screen tv and free wifi. The luxe bathrooms have underfloor heating and speakers for your own music and are filled with L’Occitane products.
Enjoy a glass of champagne at the bar of this stylish lavish hotel or sample one of the bar manager, Marks exquisite cocktails. If you are feeling a little more adventurous why not visit one of the many spas in the local area. Harrogate is famous for their baths after all!
This hotel is all about the little details with excellent customer service. There are two restaurants to choose between at the hotel, both have exceptional food, I can highly recommend the brasserie classic, East Coast Haddock and Chips which tasted divine or the melt in your mouth fillet of beef & black truffle ‘rossini’ An added bonus for me was that my pooch companion was even welcome to join me for dinner .
After a long relaxing day there is nothing better than walking into a beautifully decorated room and slipping between the sheets of a 6ft bed. Heavenly!
A fabulous stay – luxurious, elegant – highly recommended.

Rich colours, classic tones – Winter nails are all about perfectly polished CHIC. I love the gorgeous rounded stilleto shape, which adds a really decadent feel to your manicure. Also known as Almond – the Rounded Stiletto works so well with darker berry shades and adds a fierce femininity to your hands.

Keep your feet gorgeously cosy this Winter with the latest additions to the Ugg Sparkle range.
This years it’s all about animal magic – with leopard print taking centre stage. There’s also an icy focus – the new cool blue joining the classic silver and black shimmer. The short shape flatterers the leg and they add a glamorous touch to the start of the season. As we move into Winter, these will give you that Christmas sparkle while also brightening up January. You can wear them all year round and they add a statement look to a simple outfit. Perfect!!

Super fine, super chic – Babylights are THE new hot colour trend.
Delicately weaved pieces of sunshine scattered beautifully all through the hair – exactly where the sun hits – the effect is similar to wonderful make up and just lights up your face instantly. It’s really subtle and such a wearable trend. Unlike all over colour, ombre or elegant muti tonal lights – colour you can really see – this technique is finer – giving you the seriously radiant , multidimensional and just ‘born with it’ glow from our childhood.
The technique takes time and is on the pricier side for highlights – but looks amazing and really is low maintenance. With babylights you avoid harsh lines as the colour grows out. Like ombre – we predict huge things for this gorgeous natural trend…………
Get the Glow!

Fringe is Fall’s hottest trend! Tying into the New Boho feel and adding a certain laid back chic to simple pared down basics- it’s the more carefree way to accessorise this Autumn. The texture is important too – soft leather and stud details add a luxe quality that works so well in the colder weather. Whether you picked up your pieces in the souk in Marrakech or went straight to Michael Kors for this stunning shoulder bag – the look is simple – chic, global glamour.
Michael Kors Rhea Studded Bag – £280
It’s also directional – fringing was everywhere for S/S 15, showcased beautifully at Proenza Shouler and Prabel Garung so this bag will work so well across the seasons!
