Spring Denim Trends

When I was younger I hardly ever wore jeans, I am not sure why I just didn't like the way they looked maybe I just saw them as too casual after being in School uniform all day. Since my 20's denim jeans have made a permanent home in my wardrobe and become and essential staple in my weekly fashion choices. They make my curves look pretty darn good.

I thought I would talk about the only brand of jeans I ever wear ‘Topshop’ sharing my favourite style and some newbies that will be perfect for spring. 

Topshop has such a diverse range with many shapes and sizes there are one for everyone from Jamie, Mom, Cropped, Leigh and Joni, you won’t be out of style with one of these.

1.  Say hello, to the MOTO Ecru Leigh Jeans. Leigh has been a favourite style of mine for a while and is one of Topshop’s most popular styles but I thought I would go out of my comfort zone for spring with a new colour. I would not usually go for cream but once on I fell in love but these are not a good in a white top! They are the perfect pair to wear with heels for a night out or a casual outing so I partnered them with some kitty flats and Topshop knit (similar one here) and was ready to hit the golf course but put on a pair of stilettos and I am ready for a night out. The Leigh is mid-rise with a skinny fit, not too skinny you have to move around to fit your body in though and the fraying at the bottom adds a stylish twist.The ecru fabric used means these are super soft and uses stretchy fabric so you can wear them all day long.  The MOTO Ecru Leigh Jean cost £38.

2.  Can we just take a moment to appreciate how amazing these jeans are...they have a freaking glitter flamingo and palm tree on them, getting me in the mood for a holiday. These jeans are based around the ‘Mom’ style jean from the MOTO range.  They are a great fit and feel super comfortable, maybe because they are made of pure cotton. The denim is a faded blue with a high waist to tuck any tum away with a tapered leg; you can also roll up the legs for a cooler style. These would go great with a pair of stilettos or my Lacoste LT Spirit Elite trainers. Partnered with a tight fitting top such as Topshop body. TheMOTO Flamingo Sequin Mom Jean cost £55.

3.     Add a bit of edge to your style with the MOTO Washed Black Raw Hem Joni Jeans. Compared to Leigh these are on another level of skinny and when I wear them I get so many compliments they really do hug the figure well. The washed black with a cut hem adds a bit of edge and with them being ultra-high rise a fun jumper (like this Joanie one) and a cami or tucked in shirt makes the outfit on point. The fabric is made from spray-on black denim with super stretchiness. The MOTO Washed Black Raw Hem Joni Jeans cost £40.

4 Pairs of Designer Spring Shoes You Need Right Now

Hello Fashion lovers, do I have a post for you. From being back in the US and re-watching countless episodes of Sex in The City my desire to own 124342534 pairs of designers heels is through the roof. Whilst hunting the internet I got to see all my usual faves from Jimmy Choo, Miu Miu etc but there was some newbies that I just need to shout about and they are oh so Sex In The City.


To my delight when I came back to the UK and started getting back into the blogging world, luxury online retailer Farfetch is now selling them! Farfetch is one of those website I gaze over at least once a week and dream of all the things I could buy…back to Manolo’s, Farfetch are not just selling the shoes they have launched an exclusive collection: ‘SCIPIOS’ and they are calling to me as I dream of a wardrobe like Carrie.

This exclusive capsule collection is bringing colour back and making me think of the summer. The collection consists of  five vibrant shades all with a heel of around 4.1 inches (so not too high). If you look closer at the heel you can see it is not your ordinary stiletto, the Manolo Blahnik SCIPIOS heel is exclusive to Farfetch and it has been specially designed  creating the ‘SCIPIOS’ style, a mix of Manolo Blahnik’s iconic ‘stiletto’ design and artist Mark Rothko take on the heel to create a piece or art in a sculpted heel. All styles are in patent leather and have a slightly pointed, closed toe look.

The collection was designed to place a personality to each shoe with:

Pink: The Romantic One
Nude: The Playful One
Black: The Mysterious One
White The Modernist One
Orange: The Wild One

Manolo Blahnik: SCIPOS

I think I would go for nude or ‘The Playful One’, I just love the pop on colour inside the shoe.

If you’re in the market for a new heel for the season make sure the Manolo Blahnik SCIPIOS is on your list. 



With the weather getting warmer a little mule never hurt nobody and these Marc Jabobs beauties are divine. Encased in gold or silver leather with a snakeskin effect this is definitely another one on my lust list.

Keeping to typical mule style it is backless and features an open toes. I do find mules are usually very comfortable, so if you can't cope with heels usually a mule is the way to go with that thick block heel. The cross-over straps add an elegant touch and these would be perfect to wear to a day event and keep on to party into the evening, very versatile.

Guide price is £319 


I am such a sucker for Choo, so a new style just had to feature on my list and I am drooling over the image of these with mom style jeans on the Farfetch website. These heels although perfect to dress up in a casual outfit I am thinking these would be a perfect addition to nearly every type of wedding guest outfit maybe even if you are the bride to be.

The heels are made from pink leather and embellished in glitter in Jimmy Choo typical pump style with a slight pointed toe and a not too crazy heel.



  
Nothing says spring quite like flip flops and these embellished ones are lovely with a bit of an edge being in black so they will go with anything. I don’t actually own anything from Tory Burch as every time I pass the store the queue is out the door…is the brand really that good? Although this is when I am in New York (where the brand was born) and Houston, maybe the hype hasn’t crossed over to the UK yet.

Anyways these flip flops are based around one of Tory Burch’s iconic flats, the cult classic: Reva it features the classic logo of a double TT in a medallion and although I am featuring the black pair for my roundup your can get these in a variety of colours and patterns.


Guide price: £122

Luxury Gift Guide: Mother's Day

I am never usually with my Mum on Mother's Day, as you may know she lives in the USA but I still like to make her feel like a Queen even when I am miles away. So below are some luxury gift I would buy my Mummy!  
Luxury Gift Guide: Mother's Day
These little pink balls are just pure indulgence!
Aldi, the little cheeky monkeys have created a pretty identical candle to Jo Malone, the main difference is its 90% cheaper - be afraid, Jo Malone be very afraid. It’s a pretty large size of 290g and has a burn time of 48 hours. So far I am very impressed!
This is the perfect gift for my Mum as she loves a glass of fizz and with a Bubble Club subscription you get two new fizz’s to try from around the globe each month with some snacks to go with them. ‘Because life is better with Bubbles’.
As luxurious treats go a mini bottle of Moët would go perfect with breakfast in bed with some organise juice for a mimosa.
Luxury Gift Guide: Mother's Day
My mum is a whizz in the kitchen and now becoming a health bunny, this pizza oven would mean she could make something a little bit naughty but on the healthy side. Who could say no to a handmade pizza is just 5 minutes?
Luxury Gift Guide: Mother's Day
For the ultimate luxury gift if you have the Money why not buy a Roja Parfum. This one is ‘A Goodnight Kiss’. The sent is a blend of Aldehydes, Bergamot, Carnation, Rose, Jasmine, Ylang Ylang, Orange Blossom, May Flower and Violet for a spicy yet floral scent and it looks divine on any vanity table.
Luxury Gift Guide: Mother's Day
    Clairns – any product really!  
Clarins is a favourite of Mummy Kay so any products would do but I have gone for Supra Volume Mascara, 4-Colour Eye Palette in Rosewood and BB Skin perfecting cream as my top favourites right now.
Luxury Gift Guide: Mother's Day
Dr Murad has done it again with a powerful serum using the exclusive Tri-Retinol Technology to fight against lines and wrinkles. My mum is beautiful inside and out but sometimes even the best of us need a helping hand.
Luxury Gift Guide: Mother's Day
    S+ ResMed, £99
Sleep is one of the most important thing is my life and the S+ is the world’s first (talk about luxury) non-contact, sleep tracking system to analyse and improve sleep without the need of a clunky wristband. The S+ is available from Amazon.

I am gifting one of my favourite coffee scrubs which you can also see featured in 7Natural Beauty Products. Coffee scrubs have so many benefits for the skin to renew, hydrate and exfoliate all over leaving you feeling like a bit of luxury.
Luxury Gift Guide: Mother's Day
Cooper is the trend that keeps on giving so you can’t go wrong with this Salter set and who can have enough pots, really?
Luxury Gift Guide: Mother's Day

And then it can be wrapped up in some personalised wrapping paper straight from my social media account from Wrap.me

6 fragrances for Spring

6 fragrances for Spring
Are you ready for Spring? the days are getting longer and the UK is getting warmer so it is time to not only refresh my wardrobe but my scent collection as well and these six beauties smell delicious and look oh so pretty! 


My obsession with Jimmy Choo is back with L'eau. The brand have kept to a similar style to Jimmy Choo, Exotic but the bottle has gone on a diet. Jimmy Choo brings sensuality into this bottle with fresh top notes, hints of citrus with bergamot and hibiscus flower (FYI if you try a hibiscus flower is a glass of Prosecco it tastes amazing!) and with the addition of nectarine you get a fruity twist. My favourite flower tops off the sent and adds a sweet note, the peony and of course cedarwood trails throughout.

Overall this fragrance wins again being sexy, floral and a tiny bit fruity!


If you can’t get Cartier jewels the fragrance Baiser Fou is the next best thing. The scent has been inspired by lipstick, with the phrase ‘with a taste of a kiss’ etched through the campaign. This fragrance has an irresistible chocolaty scent that lingers, orchid that adds a touch of floral which ensures this is a sensual but a feminine scent.


Again, Narciso Rodriquez fragrances have been integrated into my fragrance collection for a while (check out 4 Summer Scents) and the new pop of bright pink draws you in at first sight. As the name suggest this is a floral based fragrance based around the signature scent of musc with pink peppercorns, adding spice and then the delicate touch of rose, amber and patchouli for a soft scent. 

The scent lingers for hours which is a bonus and it was an exclusive to Selfridges but just launched nationwide on the 13th March 2017.

Now this is a fragrance I have never tried before but the girly bottle pulled me in. I see the brand and bottle channeling confident women, I have no idea why but it links in with the branding of a ‘Modern Day Goddess’.

The scent is strong and sexy and perfect for a night out or date night with oriental tones: vanilla amber accord, orange blossom and white pepper with floral undertones seeping through.

Victor & Rolf, Flowerbomb has appeared several times on this little lifestyle blog, most recently on finding the perfect gift for a friend. I see this as my ultimate luxury fragrance and only use it for special occasions. I remember when my bestie wore it at University and I fell in love with the flirty and girly scent. I can’t even explain what it smells like it’s just like a ball of lush.


Jean Paul Gautier is my sister's favourite scent, she is one of those people who never ventures far from her favourite fragrance and why would you when it smells this good. The Classique fragrance has only a few subtle changes keeping with the classic Jean Paul Gautier style.

The refined scent has a bit of spice with ginger and chilli accord as key top notes with orange flower and a subtle hint of jasmine at the heart. Finishing off the scent there are woody and amber tones at the base. 


This is an Classique and irresistible scent.
