Scratch Magazine

Some of you may know, I have working for Scratch Magazine as an Intern for just over a month now, I have created various different social media applications and would love for my blogger's to check them out.

Scratch Magazine website- (blog pages)*here* this includes daily updates on everything nails!

And a huge Pinterest page with 12 amazing boards *here*

Unfortunately Scratch is a trade magazine so public users are unable to read it, but by checking out these sites you can be up to date, and get the latest scoop on what's going in the latest issues.

Would love some feedback!

Point Rivets Pumps

After a wonderful birthday yesterday, I have many new additions to update you on. But I ordered these shoes in January and today they choose to arrive, right after my birthday and the Vogue Festival!

I think they are so chic and very rebellious! The first expression from my family was 'oh very bondage' - take that as you wish but they are purely sexy.
If your up for waiting around three months for them here's the website *here*
But I have another option *here*

What do you guys think ?

Vogue Festival 2012

Surely the title makes you wee your pants?

And yes considering it was the first year it was run, it was mind-blowingly fabulous.

Anything privileged enough to be sponsored by Vertu is ultimately deemed to excel, 

An impressive cover collection. Apologies in advance for the poor images,

Christopher Bailey for Burberry
Nigella Lawson on Women and food - ( absolutely gorgeous ) 
L/R- Russel Marsh, Marigay KcKee, Matthew Williamson, Lucinda Chambers
Domenico Dolce, Stefano Gabbana
L/R- Pixie Geldof, Anne Robinson, Edie Campbell, Laura Bailey, Mary Portas
Stella McCartney, Kate Hudson

After being rained on endless times and marching from the tube station, a well deserved 'free' makeover with Armani makeup made me feel a bit more, presentable. Click *here* for updates on today's show and all of yesterdays antics.

I hope if you were able to go, you enjoyed it as much as I did, if not its a must for next year.

Scratch Magazine

Today I went to an interview at Scratch magazine for a two month internship, all went well and the girls were lovely!

If you havent heard about the mag its all about nails, they explore all kinds of nail art and interview the hottest celebs including Nicole Scherzinger and Kimmie Kyees ( for those who dont no her- she is the creator of Rhianna's and Katy Perry's works of art. )

Nail prep; 
These gorgeous nail wraps from Topshop, I found them recommended in Look magazine and knew they would be perfect for my interview and the Vogue festival, ultimately they are not as easy as first thought, It took me half an hour of re-pealing and squishing onto my nails, but I got there in the end! 

To try my nail wraps click *Here*
They also sell them at Asos, Topshop and Amazon plus you can get student discount :) 

Look out for these magazines at your local salons and beauty shops, they are a great read.

Burgundy leather jacket

So after looking at endless hair inspiration images of the wonderful Rosie Huntington-Whiteley I decided I 'had' to have a burgundy jacket, totally off trend I know but I was instantly hooked, but with guilt in mind that Mrs Whiteley had paid $2,595.00 for her Balenciaga biker. 

Click *here* for Rosie's Jacket - its risky business tho girls, I was very close to landing very miserably into my overdraft.

After realizing summer was already upon us, what shop would be selling a heavy jacket with a deep wintry colour.... Ebay sprang to mind, and yes they had the exact (not a Balenciaga knock off ; unfortunately) but a very similar one.

Dress from F&F at Tesco, belt Asos.

After a bidding war, I won the jacket for £30 which was a good price considering it was £89 originally at Zara TRF section.

What do you think?

Happy Easter

Skirts over dresses trend

I'll let the images do the talking ( for now )


Sparking off a hot new summer trend, layering- consisting of a dress and skirt, Karolina Kurkova is possibly the only person able to make this look presentable, with the help of an outstanding pair of pins and a lusted figure oh and an effortlessly beautiful Alexander Wang dress. 
The comparison of a skirt or a dress, is dependant on the weather and mood, but comprising the both seems unheard of. 

It seems puzzling but it's great for those days when you are dying to wear both your skirt and your dress, but be sure to check the patterns and colours are suitable, it could very easily go disastrously  wrong girls.

I love this, its an easy way to dress up and old outfit and personally it has not been done in previous collections, I am a lover of new trends, sparkling new trends. Im hoping this hot new idea is here to stay, bold summer prints and an ambitiously bright fluoro will bond perfectly as a dress and skirt combo. Im excited already and I am almost certainly trying this out, outfit post will be added soon. 

Are you on or off board with this?
