Winter Nails

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.

Time to Sparkle!

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!!

Babylights – New Colour Trend

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…………

Fall for Fringe

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!

Gorgeous!

Chic Bob

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.

Blow dry upside down for height at the root and then use flat irons for poker straight style. Use a serum to tame flyaways.

 We love Lee Stafford Poker Straight shampoo and conditioner.  They smell amazing, actually reduce the negative charge on the surface of your hair  and leave your locks silky and gorgeous. Boots – £5.99

Barbie Mania!

Fashion has always looked to  ‘unusual’ sources for inspiration, and this season’s most surprising muse was…Barbie. Yep that’s right, the plastic doll you and your sister fought over as children is now a key style icon. Jeremy Scott at Moschino designed an entire collection around everyones favourite blonde, and the fun, bright results are selling fast, having been made available to buy immediately after the collection previewed in Milan.

Jeremy Scott wasn’t the only designer to work with Barbie- the pocket fashionista was ‘Karlified’ by the legend himself, Karl Lagerfeld. The resulting doll sold out on net-a-porter in under one hour, although you die-hard fans can still get your hands on one over at eBay…for a steep mark-up.

Finally, Barbie joined Instagram under the name @barbiestyle a month ago and has nearly 400K followers enjoying her style everyday. From shots of her by the Eiffel Tower during Paris Fashion Week, to nostalgic throwback posts of Barbie and Ken in the 80s, this official account is a must follow for the style obsessed- she might be tiny but Barbie is always impeccably turned out.
