19 days, 11 hours, 3 minutes till Christmas...

I am such a hopeless romantic especially when it comes to Christmas, love the romantic lovey dovey movies, Mariah's all I want for Christmas and there are lots of other Christmasy things for us to enjoy all around us. To Quote Hugh Grant in Love Actually "Christmas is all around us!"

Xmas Make Up

Giorgio Armani make up
I am so in love with this look and their make up, using a slightly warmer colour than my skin tone in the liquid foundation and contouring with a peachy blush and to die for red lipstick which stays on amazingly...I want it all.

A breath taking collection with Film-clips, news reels, music and photography that reflect not only the spirit and the style of the decades but also the wider social and cultural changes of the century.

My favourites pieces are featured, the collection was so inspiring it made me want to quit my job and become an artist! on from 03 November – 06 March 2011.

Sparkle Sparkle...

Right now I am obsessed with glitter nail polishes! This one is No.7 in Siren with a 'sally's' glitter top coat. I'm so in love with the nails inc 'all that glitters' set and their crystal caps range - oh so Christmas chic! what are your fav glitter polishes?...

"What is it you REALLY like to do? Eat!"

I recently watched the delightful film Julie and Julia (2009)and it really inspired me. It tells the story of two rather inspirational women who's lives become intertwined, even though in two totally different times, they both find their success in cooking; "they discover that with the right combination of passion, fearlessness and butter, anything is possible."

Whilst the plot unfolds with both women using their passion for cooking to get their dreams, this light hearted comedy drama captures the beautiful relationships of the supportive and loving husbands; "You are the butter to my bread, you are the breath to my life." Love this movie...

Feeling Festive...

I love that feeling when you start to feel festive, the Starbucks Christmas menu has arrived, beautifully decorated stores, Christmas gift guides, the dark cold nights where you can snuggle with some mulled wine....
I am such a kid when it comes to Christmas and I love preparing lists and organising gifts early! How are you preparing?...and what is the one thing you are wishing for this year?

Velvet High Waisted Short

I recently purchased these pretty little shorts and I have to say, I think they are my favourite piece this season. Ideal for A/W layering, perfect for a Christmas party. I'll be teaming mine with black polka dot tights and a uber cute sheer blouse, so chic. I just adore the jeweled buttons and the soft velvet fabric...so cute.

60's Vintage Vixen

My style crush of the moment; Georgia May Jagger.
Her signature pieces; jumpsuits, leopard print, city shorts, uber cute blouses, printed tees - think rock n roll glamour.
Georgia's essentials for her look; red petal pout, undone hair and flawless nude skin.
My look; The Rough
diamond trend is all about following the fun of the girls in the 60's, mix and match and throw on whatever you fancy! Smudge your eyeliner and team with coral red lips and leopard print and you can't go wrong...

Faux Fur Frenzy...

Right now I am little bit obsessed with my vintage inspired faux-fur coat from New Look. It's so me and totally captures my 60's rough diamond ambiance. I love it! That's another 'must have' item crossed off my autum/winter wish list. The coat features in October's Vogue.

"It's so nice to let girls look like girls again"




My new Style Crush is Florrie Arnold...
Florrie is only 21 and already she has written songs for Cheryl Cole, played drums for girls aloud and is putting the finishing touches to her own untitled album as we speak. Not only does she have all this under her belt but she is the ultimate new style crush of the season. With her golden bedhead curls, porcelain perfect doll skin and soft rose lips, whats not to like;
"It's so nice to let girls look like girls again"

Her style is classic chic and she opts for fit over colours or trends for her look.

I think her style icons would be Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn.
Florrie is the star of Nina Ricci's latest advertising campaign.

I thought there would be no better way to end the summer in style in a LWD..following the celeb craze this season of taking over the LBD, I teamed mine with my fave tangerine lipstick, grey peeptoe shoes and a curly updo for instant glamour. Team yours with navy, black, grey and camel for this season's winning colour pallete. "Winter white says im expensive" Vogue.
