Burberry @ NYFW

New York Fashion Week

Burberry Prorsum

I'm not sure how strongly everyone feels about leather, especially leather jackets, but I'm slightly obsessed, whether they have fur, studs, feathers, you name it I love it!

Which is why I've decided to do a post on Burberry Prorsums new line of leathers. Strutting down the catwalks in New York, they came in all shapes and sizes, cropped gillets, studded snakeskins, but my favourite has to be the leather sleeved belted trench, I WANT IT!!

With Paris Fashion Week starting tomorrow I'm sure there will be hundreds of things on our wish lists, but for now it's clear that the stand out trends so far in fashion week have been:

Pleats - As seen at House of Holland

Prints - As seen at Erdem and the good ol Vivienne Westwood.

Feathers - As seen at Betty Jackson (think this line had every trend going, beautiful).

Shorts - As seen everywhere from John Rocha, Betty Jackson & Twenty8Twelve.

As if looking at all of this wasn't enough, I have to then swoon over all the celebs in the front rows and drool over their beautifullness!

At Laaaaaaaast.....

H&M Goes Online!

Considering they opened their 1st store a staggering 63 years ago, have 2000 stores in 37 different countries and have 76,000 employers, you'd have thought H&M would have grasped hold of the whole Internet thing a while ago.

However I am no where near complaining, as someone who uses her well earned lunch hour at work to click through the online shopping sites we have to choose from, I am more than thrilled to add these to my favourites bar.

I always find that when I'm out shopping I always discover hidden gems in this store and now I don't even have to leave the house to get them!

With their range from Women's, Men's, Teenager's, Children, Accessories, Cosmetics and Footwear this is a loved and well known brand that is not only there for the well priced basics but for the chic work wear and cosy yet luxurious laid back items.

Here are some of the new collection pieces that are now available online for us to buy and drool over. Let's face it, what on earth took them so long.....

The New Reality Celebs...

Our world has become full and obsessed with the whole 'reality show' saga. My statement sounds as if I mean it in a negative, but I assure you I don't. I live for reality shows and thank God for Sky+ otherwise Series Recording The Hills, The City, Pretty Wild, Keeping Up With The Kardashians (my list is endless), would stop me from watching these shows in awe.

Some shows get criticized due to the amount of drama that occurs, "it must be scripted" they say, quite frankly I don't care if it's scripted or not, IT IS BRILLIANT! As a true follower of The Hills, when I watched the last ever episode I was a tad confused as to whether or not the last 6 years of watching this little crew go out, grow up and do pretty much everything rich kids do, was all completely acted out, I gave my self 3 seconds before I thought, again, I don't care, I've loved every second of every episode!

These shows produce so many people who are now incredibly famous and some have gone on to do amazing things and stay normal, however some of these shows produce manufactured, plastic beings, i.e Heidi Montag. Again I find it hard to not love all these people because I just find them hilarious, even Spencer who was an evil genius, who then just turned into an insane crystal freak (who by the way now lives in the UK I hear, WHOOP, I pray we meet one day)! I do feel for Heidi thoug, as from the beginning she was a normal young American girl and to what she is like now is a completely different person from several years ago, sometimes that's normal, obviously I'm no longer at school studying and riding my roller blades outside anymore, but to think the Heidi who was once introduced to us on our screens years ago would undergo 10 surgeries in one day, I wouldn't have gueesed it. That is the price of fame for you, however I do believe that it doesn't turn all people into bubblegumpop freaks, instead these shows occasionally turn out, beautiful, elegant, down to earth, stylish beings, a la Lauren Conrad!

Now I could talk about this amazing woman for days on end. Not only is her style completely impeccable but as a person she is so nice! Throughout watching The Hills she came across friends who came and went, but she always made new ones, to this day I only think the genuine one was Whitney Port, I even had my doubts on Lo, but I could be wrong. Lauren has brought out a style book and a string of story books she has written herself. I would buy almost anything of hers, as I believe everything she picks just looks completely flawless. She would be one of the celebs that I would like to meet the most out of all my little obsessions! This/She is why I love all these reality shows, they have taken over our era and I think no matter how many shows are filmed, aired, viewed, as long as there is one person out of a pack of thousands that comes out and has done what Miss Conrad has done, then I am more than happy for our T.V screens to be taken over completely by them......well as long as The Hills is put on loop (not sure my Mum could stand their whingy voices)!

Thee Olivia Palermo...


The locks, the clothes, the attitude, THE LOT!

I look precariously at so many celebs pictures, attempting to recreate their hair, make-up, clothes, THEIR LIFE, failing pretty much each time, making me feel pretty inadequate, but then when I see the odd picture of them with a huge sweat patch or the old cabbage in the tooth scenario, greasy hair, crack on show, any body part on show in fact, it makes me feel that tad bit better and think WOW THEY ARE NORMAL!

This girl is perfect, it's as if she is descended from heaven each morning, groomed by gods. I'm amazed by what she wears all the time. From the beginning Olivia had a very prim and proper style, which I think is still her signature look, however slowly but surely I am seeing more casual pictures of her, still working it and kind of making casual have a prim and proper side.

Not only is she the most wanted fashionistas everywhere at the moment, mainly due to her fabulous catty attitude on The City, but as I was flicking through the October 2010 Issue of Marie Claire, The Palermo is only modelling for Hogan :O!! Check her out below in the lush khaki number (SPOT ON YET AGAIN). Is there anything this dainty lass can't do, and yes she has a handsome model boyfriend. I'm not jealous, I swear!

I just love LADY GAGA!! In my eyes she can pretty much do no wrong, however I'm a little disturbed by this.

Now I'm all for weird new invented shoes, like table legs as heels and studs all over them that they actually become a weapon but raw meat with fat, stringy bits, the lot, I'm just not sure!!! She always pushes the boundaries which I love but is this one step to far?? I thought she may have already done it when she donned coke cans in the hair and a lobster on her head, which I completely loved, but this, mmmmm I'm not sure. She looks fabulous as always, never thought I'd say that someone donning raw stringy meat looked hot but she seems to pull anything off, even though it's a more than a tad evil. Wonder if Beckham could pull this off?? Doubt VB would like it!

These Are A Few Of My Favourite Things...

This is my first ever blog and I am pretty psyched about doing it, so I hope you enjoy.

I love reading and looking at pictures of tops, jumpsuits, scarves, nail polish, you name it, I look! So what better way to share what I find that I love as well as things I've bought that I love. I'm always one for a bargain, so I will be sharing with you everything I find that is from the bargain bin, however I am a sucker for one or two designer pieces, so I'll be posting all sorts as sometimes a key piece that costs a lot is defo worth it as it usually lasts you forever!

Even better! I'd love you to comment with any bargains you've found that you love or even something that's priced lower than what I've managed to find. I'll apologise now if a lot of things are creams, nudes and pinks as I am obsessed and I love my clothes rail full of white and creams, makes it look classic and vintage, even if it's not ;D!

First off.....

ASOS Cowl Neck Jersey Dress
Was - £20
Now - £17
Such a bargain for a gawjuss nude dress. I bought this recently and team it with a thin weaved tanned belt and nude heels.

River Island Beige Cowl Neck Top
This Cowl Neck Top (I swear I'm not obsessed with cowl necks :S, well maybe I am :D) to be fair it looks a thousand times better than what it looks on the website. I team this with skinny light jeans and brown wedges. This looks great if your a fan of a major mini dress, as the material is slightly gathered at the bottom. So technically £24.99 for a two way piece is a bargain!

Rococo Nail Polish
In a gawjuss range of colours.
Space NK and probably anywhere online!

Now I know this is a large price tag for a nail polish and usually I pay out £25 for gels but this is brill for the in between skint weeks we all have. Not only does it come in a billion different colours, but the packaging is so nice and the bottle has a funky little shape. Plus it took a few days to chip unlike a couple of hours for my normal nail polish. Buuuut....for those of you that are Chanel fans or obsessed people this is the exact shade as the Chanel Jade

This is my favourite colour, JADED! Not only is it amazing, but it's the same as the mega popular Chanel colour that is pretty much sold out everywhere! Plus you save a mega 18.49!!!

ASOS Pastel Colour Block Tote
Don't really have to say much other than a mega huge bag to fit all your stuff in for only £22.00. Bought this for my Mum for her birthday and it looks mega expensive which I lurve :D!!!!
