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.

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!

Soft, beautiful, easy to wear, the Blanket Cape goes with everything and adds a certain put together chic. Combining elegant elements of the traditional Cape -yet with more coverage and giving you a touch of Boho that looks so wonderful this Autumn.

It’s Autumn. The leaves are turning a golden red and we are back in our skinny jeans, layering up with knits and tailored jackets. It’s also the perfect time to give your hair an elegant update. After the carefree feel of Spring Layers and Summer’s Bad Girl Bob – the next step is the Autumn Chic Bob. Smooth, sleek, blunt cut beauty. This look is all about full, fierce cool. Take it shorter at the back if you still crave layers or keep a little movement around the face, but the overall feel is simple and super classy.
Britney looks amazing with her Chic Bob
