Wear | Life | Eats: London Fashion Week

I attended London Fashion Weekend yesterday for the final day of shows.  The most exciting part of fashion week for me is choosing an outfit and I normally spend the few weeks leading up to the event making decisions.  This time around I wanted to go for a more androgynous look so I wore a black t-shirt which said 'More Issues Than Vogue' on it with hot pink running shorts, black tights, brown cowboy boots and a grey boyfriend coat.  This may sound like a bit of a mish mash but I think it actually worked.

We attended the trend show where they told us that florals were going to be a hit for spring (duh?) but actually I really liked the floral look because they weren't too girly with blues and greens on show.  They also said 70s were going to make a come back so think flares, suede and fringes.  I've actually been debating whether to get a black suede fringed jacket for a while now so that's made my decision for me!

After the show and some much needed retail therapy we crossed over to STK, a restaurant in London famous for, well, steak.  Being a vegetarian I wondered whether there would be any options for me but I had a really lovely tofu and mushroom broth followed by a delicious Snickers cheesecake.  They also serve really nice cocktails in here and had a really good atmosphere.  I would definitely recommend it to a meat eater but for a vegetarian there wasn't too many options.  However, it was a really nice restaurant and the staff were super friendly and attentive.

My Favourite Looks From Fashion Week

Last month was 'Fashion Month' with showcases and catwalks taking place each week in different locations across London, New York, Paris and Milan.  Although I have been attending London Fashion Week for several years now, this time around I was in California and unfortunately could not attend any shows. However, that did not stop me from catching up once I was back from my trip to check out all the latest trends.  I was also browsing the   Esprit website   and noticed they had some awesome pieces just like the trends seen on the runway last month. Here are some of my favourites that I think are going to be hot this season and where you can copy the looks for less! Floral prints at Gucci.  You can shop the look for less here . All black at Marc Jacobs.  Shop the look for less here . Bows at Chloe.  Shop the look for less here . Sparkles at Alexander McQueen.  Shop the look for less here .

New Year, New You

As with every New Year, we make resolutions (you can see mine in my last post) but I think for most of us it's about becoming a newer and better person than we were last year.  I've come up with a few ways we can make little changes to become a newer and better you. New Hair I've said in many of my posts how much I like to change my hair and you can read about my hair dying experience here and my hair extensions experience here .  However, it needn't be a drastic change, just a little trim and some subtle highlights .  Whenever I change my hair I always feel like a new woman! New Wardrobe The New Year is probably the best time to invest in some new clothes because there are so many sales on.  You don't even have to spend a lot of money, I love affordable brands such as Esprit which do really on trend pieces at high street prices.  With a new wardrobe you will not only feel better but look better too! New Hobby The New Year is a gre

How to Wear a Pink Lip

Wearing a pink lip can sometimes be quite hard, especially if it's a rather bright and vibrant shade but I think it looks so lovely for this time of the year. My favourite shade of pink is Impassioned by MAC .  It's very bright and has such a creamy texture that it glides on really well and stays put for quite a few hours.  I find I never have to wear a lip liner with this one either. When wearing a pink lip I think it's important to get the rest of your make up right so that you don't look washed up and colours don't clash. So starting off with the skin I would get myself nice and tanned.  My favourite tanners at the moment are the Superdrug Solait tan in dark and also Tan Truth which you can get from Sally's Salon Services.  Where I have just come back from Ibiza I have still got a bit of a tan so every few days I use the St Tropez Everyday gradual tanner and this helps top up my tan slightly. Then you've got to get the make-up right so
