Taylor Swift for Vogue

18 Jan

Things have been crazy busy at More! when I’m currently doing work experience. If I’m not writing news features for the web then I’m sourcing celeb gossip or out interviewing the likes of Wayne Hemmingway. It’s all incredible and I’ll do a longer post next week about my experience.

Just wanted to blog about the stunning photos of Taylor Swift for Vogue that have hit the web today. Taylor has always been one of my favourite celebrities; she’s beautiful, has stack loads of talent and comes across as really down to earth. And now, if I wasn’t jealous of her enough, I have serious hair envy! That fringe, the gorgeous highlights… I think I need to pay a visit to Toni & Guy ASAP.

What do you think? Would you go for the chop?

Flirting with the 40s

6 Oct

I’m suddenly captivated by 1940s style- the fur stoles, the polkadots and the shocking red lips are all very on trend and very authentically 1940s. My style has become so much more ladylike, especially since I’ve lost nearly 2 stone and a lot of inches (hello, waist) And whilst I think going vintage shopping is wonderful, I’m turning to the High Street to get my perfect 40s look with a little modern update. What era are you loving at the moment?

I’ve wanted to dye my hair pink for ages. Indeed, purple or blue would do. Can you imagine the admiring looks you’d get from passers-by for being so brave as to don a candyfloss coloured do?

Alas, working in the fields of B2B PR and modelling kind of restrict my hair colour options- and I’d miss my signature ginger locks far too much! It was when pondering how to transform my barnet into something rainbow coloured that my lovely mother discovered Lee Stafford’s Colour Extreme sprays.

The Colour Extreme spray comes in a wide range of colours including ultra violet (which I’m currently sporting now), passionate pink, rockin red and azure blue. I’ve taken to plaiting my hair and then spraying the braid a pretty pink or purple for a slightly bohemian look.

The best thing about the sprays, apart from their super reasonable £3.99 price tag, has to be the fact that they’re wash-in/wash-out. So if you’re in a slightly “sensible” job like I am or you don’t fancy keeping the colour, you just pop your head under the shower and you’re back to normal!

The Colour Extreme sprays are brilliant for weekends, parties or festivals. I’m planning on adding blue to my collection!

Priced at around £3.99, the Lee Stafford Colour Extreme sprays are available at Boots and selected online retailers. Get colouring!

Cherry & Joy.

I discovered Cherry & Joy when they added me on Twitter and, after a peek through their current collection, I knew I had to blog them. They have such a feminine range of costume jewellery and it’s all reasonably priced. If you’re looking for something a little bit different, something floral, something girly and contemporary, then look no further! Personally I really love the peacock feather hairband. It looks like a pretty butterfly made from peacock feather and, well, that just makes me smile quite a lot!

Priced at £15.95, it can be bought through the Cherry & Joy site.

Have you heard about Cloth Ears?

29 Sep

Starting in 2007, Cloth Ears has gained mass success as the sweetest, most cute, most darling online company around. Ever. Their folksy designs add a nostalgic touch to any home or outfit. And there’s so much to pick from too- vintage looking signs, incredible satchels, bird houses, bunting, wall hangings, soft toys, badges…

I first discovered Cloth Ears in a magazine a few weeks back and contacted them just to tell them how super incredibly fabulous they are. I’ve actually yet to make my first purchase, too torn between one of their Paper Planes satchels for university or one of their fifties style flasks. Do you think anyone would mind if I bought the entire shop? Thought not!

It’s such a struggle to find vintage looking pieces for the home, garden and the wardrobe but Cloth Ears have really come up tops in the chart of everything retro and pretty. If you’re in need for something utterly different from anything on the High Street, take a look at my favourites and then check out the website. Trust me, you’re about to be totally spoilt…
