Mademoiselle Prive at Saatchi Gallery

Last weekend I attended the Chanel and Lagerfeld exhibition at London's Saatchi Gallery. This was the same venue that I attended London Fashion Weekend (which you can read about here).

What I love about this venue is that most of their exhibitions are free.  However, the only problem with that is then the world and his wife decide they want to go and you end up queuing outside for 90 minutes in the cold just to see it.

However, we decided to brave the cold and queue because I was really desperate to see the exhibition and knew it was only on until the end of the month.  Chanel is probably my all time favourite designer so I didn't want to miss my chance.

Luckily it was worth the wait and inside we were able to see some beautiful pieces of work from Mademoiselle Chanel.  Everything just glittered and sparkled and I think that's maybe what I love about her work.

The exhibition was set out well rather than being your average walk round and look at displays.  They had a little screening room which played a short film directed and starred in by Karl Lagerfeld.  They also had a room with lots of iconic Chanel fabric hanging from the ceiling that you could quite easily get lost in.

They then had a rather unusual sort of 'chill out' room with seating and walls made from leaves.  There were 3 different floors to look around so lots to see.  They also had workshops running, however, we didn't have much time for that after queuing for so long.

If you get a chance to see the exhibition I would definitely go, however, if you can get there during the week it may be less busy!

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 . Not only does   Esprit   do runway trends for

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
