So the much anticipated video from Kanye West has been leaked, and I must admit… I’m always impressed by Kanye’s styling but the styling in this video as a whole is VERY impressive!! Especially Nicki Minaj’s ‘on trend’ lace body suit *girl crush*!!
So here’s the link!! Take a look!!
From Me to you.. I pucker up! and shout…..
A CLEAR REASON WHY YOU SHOULD
NEVER TAKE A SNAPSHOT AFTER
So, I hope every one has had a wonderful Christmas day.. not forgetting what its TRUELY about..
But one of the biggest questions I have to ask is.. “What did you wear?”
With Great inspiration from H&M’s amazing use of Rich colours and textures.. I chose this Maxi Dress for my Christmas dinner Outfit
I accessorized this dress with a thick Black belt to tie in with my Full Topshop Unique inspired Hair which models like Jordan Dunne (below) rocked out for their Spring Summer 2010 Fashion Show.
Jourdan Dunne Looks A-MAAAZIING!!
This is my translation (Below)
Message me what you wore… I would LOVE to feature you!!
GET HER HAIR!!
As you all know.. I am a HUUUUGE fan of Rihanna, She is one of my FAVOURITE style icons… And I feel I’m right to say we are all loving her ever-changing hairdo’s!! *grin*.
She looked absolutely gorgeous last weekend on X factor in her thigh high split Maxi dress and her gorgeous curl bob framed her face amazingly! So.. I researched a quick and ‘easy’ way to GET HER GORGE’ HAIR!!
For those who find it easier to follow a step by step plan, this is for you:
But then.. for those of us who find it easier following something visual I found this GREAT tutorial on Youtube which ‘funnily’ enough gives a step by step guide for a *whispers* Beyoncé Inspired hairstyle *covers face*, at the end of the day.. you still get the GORGEOUS look!
A GUIDE ON HOW TO LOOK 13 AGAIN… IN EASY STEPS 1,2,3…!
LOL… are you surprised? You were probably expecting a step by step guide of a home facelift.. or Botox injections LOL!!
I have an EASIER alternative!
I want Santa to wrap me up a gift that can help me keep my youth for as long as possible, and ask ANY Beauty expert.. you can lose YEARS with having the PERFECT EYEBROWS for your face *crowd of women cheer*
The first time I saw one of Shavata’s concessions was in my current work place House Of Fraser.
“Shavata has worked in the beauty industry for over 20 years and has now launched Shavata brow studios and Lash Lounges across the UK. She has become a leader in her field and has forged a reputation as THE leading authority on eyebrows. No one shapes and grooms brows in quite the same way.
Shavata truly believes in the difference professionally manicured eyebrows can make and all her clients can verify this instantly! It is equivalent to a mini face lift, which takes no longer than 15 minutes. Using a wax, tweeze and threading method, eyebrows are groomed to create the perfect frame for the face. Shavata says “Eyes are the most important feature on your face” so having them perfectly framed with beautiful brows only makes sense.“
So let’s get to it!!
STEP1 – The Shape:
THANK GOD.. Shavata has answered our prayers.. we all see eyebrows on celebs or in the magazines and say “I want those brows..” and Shavata offers a ready-made stencil so you can EASILY change the shape of your brows to suit your face and get that hot celeb look!! ‘The stencil kit (£12.50) helps you to create the perfect arch every time by either by filling in or tweezing. The kit includes 4 different eyebrow shapes (with 3 pairs of each style) as well as a double-ended (light and dark) pencil. By simply shading and or tweezing using the eyebrow stencil, you can create the perfect brows.’ HOW EASY IS THAT!!
STEP 2 -Tame those Brows
So after you have your desired shape… you need something than can maintain them and tame those devilish fly-away hairs! ‘ The eyebrow mascara clear gel ‘click pen’ tube (£14.50), tames unruly eyebrows and gives a manicured look, great for in between appointments’.
Step3 – Glam it up
So you have your beautifully shaped brow’s all in place… now its time to glam them up for daywear or nightwear. ‘The three eyebrow creme shadows (£19.50) in a sleek mirrored compact that can be used individually or together to create the perfect shade when enhancing your brows. What i particularly like about this kit is that people who don’t like to wear a lot of make up can easily use this palette to just brighten the eyes.
AND THATS IT!
In three easy steps , you can look 13 again lol.. and why not take a look at my post on how to get this seasons model ‘power brows‘ look?
I’m not sure about you guys.. but when i see this sign, my face lights up like a kid who’s walking into Mcdonalds… *grin*!! It’s one of those ‘if you haven’t tried it, you haven’t lived!’ type of snacks!
WARNING: DO NOT OVER INDULGE! YOU ARTERIES AND THIGHS WILL NOT BE HAPPY, LOL!!
So this christmas i would looooove for santa to deliver me a dozen (12) Krispy kreme doughnuts *perve smiles and rubs stomach* LOL!!
Doughnuts at Krispy Kremes cost from £1.10… but when choosing a Dozen box of Krispy Kremes it’s a real BARGAIN! You can either choose a box of 12 Original Glazed doughnuts which cost a Delicious £7.45, or a box of 12 assorted doughnuts which costs £9.45… (see above for selection) They also have a cute festive selection!!
The Dozen box is perfect for sharing with the family this christmas.. If you want a large selection of doughnuts you can get TWO BOX’S FOR £14.95!! WHAT A BARGAIN!!!!!!
Krispy Kremes also do delivery… check out their website for more details. But if you happen to stop in one of their shops, make sure you get yourself a looovely hot beverage to warm yourself up in this cold winter weather, perfect to eat with your doughnut!!

So i would LOOOVE for santa to help me wrap up this Winter with some gorgeous fashion tights so that when I wear my gorgeous A/W trend tailored shorts or even my embellished or textured skirts, it will help my ‘elevens’ to stay look gorgeous and warm!!
I have featured some of my personal Favourites.. but be sure to browse their websites.. There are sooooo many more to choose from!!!
Wrap up Fashionably warm!!!
So apart from tonight’s Xfactor being the moment when the (moany) british public complained about Rihanna and Christina dancing being to provocatve and showing WAAY too much skin (you should have changed the channel then you old hags)….
When Rihanna entered the stage to sing along finalist Matt Cardle… I believe this was also the moment when the WHOOOOLE of Britain & Ireland’s stood still.. and then their jaw’s dropped.. funnily enough.. even CHRIS BROWN (Rihanna’s Ex) happened to ‘coincidentally’ broadcast on twitter STRAAAAAIGHT after her performance.. (tut tut…) his Tweet said:
“got damn you sexy!!!!!!..”
To then be deleted in the next 30 mins *puts on columbo detective face*.. hmmmn??
ANYWAYS! Rihanna was showing of her gorgeous legs in a Tre Chiq long sleeve maxi dress with spiced up with the ‘on trend’ thigh high split.. *gasssp of jealousy*… SHE JUST LOOKED ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!
We DO NOT blame you Matt *LOOOOOL!!*
Get Rihanna’s HOT look:
Try these 4 options:
You REALLY can not go wrong when it comes to Barry M nail Varnish… They offer all the colours of the rainbow and MORE!! My attempt to fit all of them into one picture would result in an EPIC fail *covers Face*.. I took a selection of some of my favourite shades that I would LOVE for santa to wrap up for me this christmas!!
If your someone who prefers online shopping, the Nine West UK website is coming soon. So the perfect place to find Nine West online would be on the Kurt Geiger website. In my opinion Nine west does one of the best seasonal sales and have such gooorgeous shoes!! I am a shoe addict and whats better than having a bag that can match them? and yes!!… Nine west is perfect for that!! Since it’s the Season to SPARKLE *harp sound* I have picked some of my favourite bits from Nine West Online in festive red, glam’ black and the daring Leopard print with a splash of nude!

Does this look familiar?
Wether it’s when you got your Simon Cowell straight face on.. or your laughing your guts out and these 8+ talons creep up on the corners of your eyes, every beauty brand is claiming to have the answer to banish these devilish crows feet. I am a huge fan of Clarins products and I would LOOOVE for Santa to Bring me some of…
Clarins Beauty Flash Balm
Clarins Beauty Flash Balm turned 30 last month and to celebrate Clarins teamed up with Swarovski and created this gorgeous crystal studded cap *grrr*.
This Beauty Flash Balm brightens and tightens. Clarins describes it as an exceptional beauty booster which immediately eliminates all signs of fatigue: facial features appear rested and smooth. The cream in contact with the skin, remains soft and pliable to fill out fine lines. While the cream in contact with the air, sets to a firming film which gives skin a radiant glow. It promotes a radiant complexion and long-lasting, incredibly luminous make-up. The ideal treatment before a busy day or an evening out. Also the great thing about this product is that it works for all skin types.
This product sounds amazing! and seems perfect for this cold weather that can be quite harsh on model like skin *side eye* and from testing it at the House Of Fraser counter it left my skin feeling smooth and soft!! I’m all for fighting signs of skin aging as young as i am.. so If santa doesn’t deliver this… maybe it will be a gift to myself!!
I haaaad to post this up randomly as i am a member of #teamrebel (part of Jamelias support group on twitter). I love Jamelia (ESPECIALLY IN THAT STUNNING DRESS). She comes across as such a down to earth girl.
Name: Jamelia Niela Davis
Job: Singer, Songwriter, Model, Entertainer, Actress and television presenter *go girl*
I loved watching Jamelia on the documentary where she was researching to find where and who the hair weave she used had come from . Which to be honest is so interesting to me because so many of us freely go and buy hair weave in the shops and not think twice about where the hair REALLY comes from.
But apart from that including her lovely, warm, strong character and her beautiful voice.. she is on my list of TOP 10 Legs i would steal in a heartbeat… She deserves to be featured!!
Go on GIRL… SHOW’EM LONG LEGS OOOOWWFF!!
The first thing that came to mind for me was English heritage. This trendy gal reminds me of the goooorgeous florence with her fiery red hair.
I spotted this lady in office… yup again i say it.. OFFICE CROYDON!! funnily enough her colleague calls her ‘charity shop’.. tut tut. Any fashionista knows that the best things come from vintage. all these vintage boutiques we shop in were inspired by our very charity shops that sit on our streets. Forget embarrassing, like TK Maxx some charity shops are time-consuming to look through but you can reeeally walk out with some unique bargains..
Her use of Autumn/Winter key trend pieces make this outfit stand out! especially with her use of colour and texture. The faux fur scarf and khaki tailored harem trousers look absolutely gorgeous together. She has paired the tailored trousers with a sheer top which has a gorgeous leaf detail on it (gawwwsh i love attention to fashion detail!!). The outfit is perfectly garnished with her boy lace up shoes in a warm brown colour and her goooorgeous fiery red vintage updo!!
I am WON over with this look.. I just HAAAAD to stop her!!!
If you want to know how to do this quirky ‘Vintage Updo’ then take a look at this video… apologies for the long intro but i LOVE how this girl does it. You can also swap the chosen ponytail in this video for a bun or a like the above fashionista a twisted pony updo!!
I chose this six button Cape from High Street store Dorothy Perkins as the perfect gift.. this colour can easily be paired up with Winter accessories i.e. warm chocolate brown scarf and hat.
The best thing about it is that Dorothy Perkins offer free Postage and Packaging when you spend over £75 soooooo in shopaholic language you need to CLICK CLICK CLICK!!!
Celebrity Clare Watson showed me that the colour Camel works best when using it on Statement Pieces i.e. a jacket, bag etc. There are SOOO many Stores to get great camel pieces but my favourite item is the camel coloured Cape!
As i featured on the Fashion Trends Page, Camel is one of the main trends which should be incorporated into our wardrobes if we want to have that fresh Autumn Winter 2010 Look! The Military Look is also another hot trend must have this season and the six button detail on this cape help to create just that kind of look *grr* and I would LOOOVE for santa to give me this gorgeous Camel Cape for christmas to keep me stylishly warm this season! I think this cape is perfect for days and nights out as well as tea with the girls!! *grin*
Tis’ the season to sparkle.. and why not do it BIG!! I wouldn’t cut it down to diamonds being a girls best friend… I say Jewellery FULL STOP is a girls best friend
I remember when i set my eyes on my first pair of Mikey’s London Earrings.. and I HAAAAD to buy them!! *screeeam* It is a bit pricey for costume jewellery but they do such intricate pieces which have every girl in the room doing a super head turn!! I would absolutely LOVE for santa to wrap me up at least even ONE of theses pieces!!
I believe that you can find the perfect jewellery for everyone from Mikey. So i decided to give suggestions of the perfect 5 piece sets for different skin tones because naturally some stones compliment different complexions more than others.
Pale Skin Tones
So.. it’s not EXACTLY the perrrfect weather to wear sunglasses, but admit it.. the moment the sun shows its face we all grab our FAVOURITE sunglasses and wear them like the diva’s we all are. I am a HUGE fan of everything Vintage and I would LOOOVE for santa to wrap me up some gorgeous sunglasses especially a pair from http://www.giantvintage.com
The best thing about having vintage sunglasses are that they are unique and hard to find again. So many of us spend hundreds of pounds on sunglasses which can be found in any store.. on anyone *booo*. I say STAND OUT and have a few people ask “oooh… where did you get those sunglasses they’re gorgeous!!”.
The key thing about sunglasses is getting the right shape for your face. So below I have given a few sunglasses suggestions for different face shapes using my FAVOURITE selection of sunglasses from the Giant Vintage website.

Square Face Shape
Face has a strong, square jaw line and usually there is an equally square hairline.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TYRA!!
BEAUCOUP, JE T’AIME. À suivre dans votre I TRACES ASPIRE

One of my favourite supermodels Tyra banks (saggitarius)
turned 37 TODAY!!
Her body clock MUST have stopped at 24!! *Grin*
Tyra is a big inspiration to me, she has come from being a model to owning her own business Tyinc.
Tyra never gave up.. and pushed to be where she is now. The road was never smooth for her.. and to think tyra was rejected many times.. but i keep this in mind:
