I wasn't aware that my friend took this picture of me but I just found it on facebook and thought it summed me up very well, in the photography studio doing a photoshoot - where I belong :)

Myself and the gals are doing a project on 'Body Issues' for uni. We are required to make a short, contemporary film and we have decided to do it with a twist. Here are a few Pics that I took that will be used - modelled by the beautiful Miss Helen Dixon.

Cheryl Cole Foundation

Chezza is launching her own charitable foundation with The Prince’s Trust following a meeting with The Trust’s President, HRH The Prince of Wales.
The Cheryl Cole Foundation will provide vital funds for The Trust in the North East, helping disadvantaged young people from Cheryl’s own region.

There is a short clip of cheryl having her pix taken with the Prince Of Wales and she is clearly quite nervous, this is what I love about Cheryl, she is so down to earth...

Chez said:

'Too many young people grow up thinking no-one cares and don’t believe they can make anything of themselves. They have so much potential – but can go off the rails without the right care and support. I want my Foundation to help them realise their potential and get their lives on track.

I have always been a great admirer of the work The Prince’s Trust does with disadvantaged young people across the UK. It’s the perfect charity for my Foundation to support.'

What an absaloute hero, love love love this woman x

J'adore Paris, J'adore Michael Kors...

Paris Fashion Week has celebrated Michael Kors 30th anniversary and it was celebrated in style. Here are a selection of my fave outfits and people who attended the much celebrated event.

Giovanna Battaglia rocked a Michael Kors Cocktail dress with a pair of over the Knee Boots, not a look I would ever think of but I think it looks fab!
This is my ultimate favourite outfit of the evening. The Russian beauty wears Michael Kors, I adore the simplicity take to the outfit and love how the notorious Kors Fur jacket makes simple, sensational!

Elisa Sednaoui has come a long way from modelling H & M clothes in this gorgeous Michael Kors cocktail dress

New heels put to the test

The New heels were put to the test on a night out, a night that that consisted of 5 hours of lots of dancing. I would love to report that they were 'so comfy I could have been wearing flats' butttt I would be lieing.

I teamed them up with a pair of Leather shorts from Topshop and Lacey top from Urban Outfitters

I was a little upset that my new pride and joy did not live up to the comfort that I believed they would but I did manage a whole night without slipping on the flats (perhaps because I was to stubborn to admit that I was in fact, in agony). However, I still stick by what I said on my earlier blog, I would have been stupid not to have bought such a beautiful bargain - the pain was 100% worth it :)

Summer is on its way and so is the new wardrobe...

I know it is only March, but it is around the time that everybody is thinking about booking their summer holiday. I am heading to Sunny Spain for 10 days with the Gals and then am travelling around Bali and its fellow islands for a month in August with the Boyf.
Travelling and holidaying are one of my main passions in life as is shopping for the new bikinis, summer dresses, sandals, sunglasses etc that are required for such a summer. However being the holiday hogger that I am the bank statements are always a little scary to look at so I aim to get as many bargains as humanely possible!

The Classic Bando Bikini. I love this floral one from H & M which is only £9.99 for the top and £7.99 for the briefs.

I am a bit of a leapord print fan and this bikini is top of my wishlist from River Island. Bikini: £14.99, Brifs £9.99

As I said I am a bit of a leapord print fan... I love the simplicity of these sandals, the print gives a little oomph to the classic style, these beautys are from River Island £29.99

I really love this style, River island
  Primark: £5

I got this Maxi Dress as a xmas prezzy, it was in the Topshop sale for £10

This dress is actually an oversized top from Urban Outfitters. I will also pair it up with some short shorts or leggings if it gets a little chilly

I bought this top from Australia last year and have worn it for so many different occasions. It is perfect for a night out and for a day walking around in the sun.

Every girl needs a pair of denim Shorts. These are a boyfriend fit from H&M, I wear them with a skinny brown belt as high waisted shorts or just sling them on over my bikini.

Another Urban Outfitters bargain

Topshop Sale

Sheer shirts are a must have in the sunmmer wardrobe. I find them so versitile and they look stylish when worn in any way shape or form.
Primark £10

The Baggy T-shirt is ideal in hot, sticky weather.
Topshop sale

Oversized sunglasses. I dont care what anybody says these will always look great and in fashion. They are perfect for when you have been sunbathing by the pool or on the beach with a makeup free face and don't really fancy being seen by the world!
Primark £1.50

I am in love with this summer dress from the 'Love' collection at Topshop £34.00

America's Next Top Model is back!

To say that I am ANTM fan would be an understatement, so when the chum told me that the first episode of cycle 16 was available on YouTube all other activities were pushed aside as the new American beauty's were revealed on my small laptop screen...

There is a slight twist to the new cycle ( I won't reveal to much for those of you who haven't seen it yet) but all I will say is that emotions are most definitely tampered with.
The first guest judge of the season is none other than the beautiful Erin Wasson, who offers great advice to the final 14 and we also get to see her new jewelry range - we also get reminded of how beautiful this woman actually is!

Love this style Miss Wasson has going on


The chosen 14 on their first catwalk assignment.
They wear  Alexandra Wang accompanied with  Erin Wasson Jewellery
Tyra Banks, in true Tyra Banks style introduces the new cycle in a very amusing manner. We see her dress up as 3 different characters that are stereotypically the type to enter the competition, it is so humorous because it is so true!

The chosen 14 are thrown straight into deep end for their first catwalk assignment where they are required to walk on water in an air bubble! They are also photographed backstage by top fashion photographer, Russel James.

A sneak peak at one of the backstage pix

As usuall there are some very big characters in the new cycle and within the first couple of nights in the Malibu Penthouse several catty comments are muttered, its going to be great!!!
