Funny Face

Recently, i've become a sort of Audrey Hepburn fanatic. I've watched all the films including the oh so famous "breakfast at tiffanys" and bought a poster to go in my room off her. I've even visted the V&A to see the outfits she wore.
I wasn't sure at first what it was that made me take a shine to Audrey but now i look on it, i think it was to do with her charming nature and wit. Not to mention her great style of Fashion!
So, yesterday i was casually looking for magazines to add to my daily collection, and i came across the new Tatler magazine. I hadn't actually read that publication before. Naturally, i decided to take a cheeky peak.
Not only does it have great journalist pieces in it but it also had lots and lots and lots of unseen photographs of Audrey. Every single photo captured her innocence and beauty.
Oh Audrey, you and your stray cat might not have belonged to anybody but you certainly belonged in the media industry!!!

Alice In Wonderland

You know that crazy obsession you have that nobody understands? Well Alice In Wonderland is mine. Ever since i was a little girl, i loved everything about it. From the Mad Hatter and his tea party to the purple and pink stripes on the chesire cat. Oh, and if you haven't seen Tim Burtons recreation of the book, then i suggest you do right NOW! 


So i got thinking, my 16th birthday is coming up soon..........why not have an Alice In Wonderland theme? Which sounded perfect until i decided i was turning 16 not 6. So as a result i am now having an itallian meal with friends. But, i still like to keep a bit of the child in me, so im looking at ideas for different designs of Alice In Wonderland cakes.

Here are a few images, let me know which one you think is best and why?

Oh I do like to be beside the seaside

summer! And you girls know what that means, it's time to wack the legs out! Denim shorts, bralets and floral dresses, yup it's all coming back! So start tanning, relaxing and just soak up the sun. However, if your like me, tanning isn't always easy. Yarika for spray tan! I'm going to be posting a few numbers of what I think will be in all of your wardrobes, and make up bags this summer! So let's get started. Let's start with dresses, Asos are doing a beautiful collection of them at the moment, that are all perfect for summer and nights out. Take this one for instance, http://www.asos.com/ASOS/ASOS-Printed-Summer-Dress-With-Collar/Prod/pgeproduct.aspx?iid=1993801&cid=8799&Rf-300=1924&sh=0&pge=39&pgesize=20&sort=-1&clr=Print. Looks like something fitted for a tea party. It's yellow and floral! How styled for summer could you get? And ladys its also in the sale for £20.00 so get buying!!! Xoxo

Vogue is my bible, and amen to fashion!

And Sarah Jessica Parker couldn't be any more right in my opinion! My dream in life is to become a fashion writer/journalist for a fashion glossy magazine. If i could work for Company Magazine or Elle or Vogue, my life would be complete. I believe fashion is simply something that nobody can live without and its brilliant that we can explore new and lovely ways to make people feel comfortable, pretty and happy in what their wearing. I believe that sometime your clothes can represent parts of your personality. Fashion is just simply what makes the world go round (and money and love of course)

To pastel or not to pastel? That is the question.

href="http://http://www.topshop.com/webapp/l/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay? So many pretty candy colours are hitting the catwalks this season! With florals and lace too, pastel colours are the ultimate girly girl feel. If your not so much into all of these light colours, you can always team it up with something grunge! Like a leather jacket, studs, whatever you like really! But let these lovely pastel colours make you feel pretty too! Like this Beautiful baby blue blazer from Topshop for only £40. So go make yourself feel like the wonderful women you are!

Stars and stripes

This summery season is all about florals, lace, pastel colors.... pretty much every girls dream! However, i've found that there is one type of fashion trend that has been following us around for quite some time. That my fashionable friend, would be the american flag. The stars and stripes patterned over anything denim. This season i know what ill be wearing (asides the lace, florals, and pastel colors)

Here is a lovely denim jacket i spotted that has summer written all over it
From Topshop for £45. A little pricey but i reckon its worth it.
Besides you can't go wrong with a bit of denim......

Do what makes you laugh!

It's true what they say ya know! Your never fully dressed without a smile. Recently, I've come to notice how so many people are worried about actually being themselves! Usually, in most cases it's because of fitting in with friends but it's also because so many darn people are unhappy! When I was younger I had the exact same problem. However, as I've gotten a little older I came to the conclusion that I couldn't care less what other people think of me. If they didn't like what I was wearing, then that was there opinion. Don't get me wrong, everyone is intitled to an opinion! Nevertheless, sometimes it's good to keep opinions to yourself. I went through a depression trying to live up to other peoples expectations and now I look back thinking what an idiot I was to have wasted so much time being unhappy, I could kick myself! Worrying about what others think of you is like holding up an umbrella, waiting for it to rain. As my dad would always say "it's pointless like a pencil". Life is too short to be unhappy. I know my friends will kill me for saying this (because I say it all the time) but You Only Live Once! So make the most of it while you can. Let the small and big things in life make you smile! Like the image here did for me. The moto is- Be yourself, after all, everybody else is already taken!
