I LOVE, Kotur Clutches

I recently discovered the brand Kotur, and fell in love with their quirky selection of chic and colourful clutches. The brand itself was founded by Fiona Kotur in 2004, specialising in clutches and bags (although they do nice heels too!).

Curse of The Chipped Nail Polish: How to Avoid A Nail Nightmare

Painting your nails is a great way to freshen up a look or to make yourself feel good. However, I don't know about you but I find that I can only have perfect nails for at best five days before they start chipping - and it's not a good look. 
My nails painted with Rimmel London's LYCRA. Pro 500 Peppermint - I LOVE this shade

If you've ever had to hide your chipped nails in shame, here are my tips on how to keep your nails looking amazing (some of them are obvious):

Be Mine: Valentine's Day Outfit Ideas

I may be single this year - but that doesn't seem to stop me lusting over Valentine's day themed clothes. If you're celebrating it this February, make sure you embrace the day with what you wear.

Top Ten Celebrity Wedding Dresses

The wedding dress is traditionally the most important outfit in any women's life - ranging from the traditional white floor length to the more daring non-white alternatives. Here are my top ten favourite celebrity dresses in no particular order:

1) Grace Kelly became royalty when she married Prince Rainer III of Monaco in 1956, and her dress designed by Helen Rose of MGM was certainly fit for a princess.



2) Megan Fox looked effortlessly beautiful when she married Brian Austin Green in 2010, in  their ceremony that took place on a Hawaiian beach. She wore a simple chiffon gown designed by Armani Prive.

I LOVE, A-Morir's Flower Frames

I have to admit I have a little obsession, ok a big obsession with A-Morir's flower frames. They've been 
popping up everywhere - notably Anna Friel wore them recently in her latest shoot for In Style UK.

Started by Kerin Rose Gold, A-Morir is a luxury eyewear line inspired by Rock and Roll, with daring trend-setting designs. A-Morir eyewear has been worn by countless celebrities - Lady Gaga, Rihanna and Lana Del Rey, to name a few. Whilst the floral frames are among the more tame of the designs, I love the versatility of the way A-Morir has used flowers in their designs. My favourite has to be their pretty Cass Pastel sunglasses - that also come in a gothic black colour. Also, their Donna sunglasses in red are the perfect Valentine's Day outfit accessory for anyone who wants to make a statement.


Cass Pastel $500
Phillips Pastel $300
Donna $200
Cass Black $500

Goddard $600
McDowall Gold $280

Should Disney create Plus-size Princesses?


Follow my blog with Bloglovin







A petition was recently made by teenager Jewel Moore, urging Disney to create a plus size Disney princess, so that plus-size girls have a character they can look up to.






I agree with her, I think that as it stands the Disney princesses we see are hardly an apt representation of anyone - with Barbie proportions that are far too idealised. We need healthier looking Disney princesses, not necessarily plus size but they should reflect a real body type not one based entirely on fantasy.

As someone who is an average size (UK 8-10), I have always been incredibly anxious about my weight. Even now after watching Disney's newest film Frozen, I found that at the age of 17, there was still part of me that wanted to be like Princess Elsa. I wanted her perfectly small waist, long legs, glossy hair and beautiful big eyes. And if I'm honest, things like that make me want to lose weight, they make me question if my body is beautiful enough. Let's face it lots of women (me included) associate our own worth with our weight and beauty. I can't tell you how many times I've thought that if I was just skinnier or prettier that I'd be 'worth it.' We live in a society that tells us that Beauty=Skinny, and the Disney Princesses reflect this ideal, just like runway models and actresses.
