Scones: My first attempt!

15 Jun

My second favourite thing to do is bake. I love all things to do with baking, I’ve had to restrain myself from buying the whole baking aisle in ASDA. No joke. Over the past few days I’ve been having the biggest craving for scones. So instead of buying them I thought why not bake some! Ok, I’ not going to lie, I did use a ready-made batter but I did add milk! Anyways, I hope you like the pictures and trust me they taste amazing! Especially with butter (  alternative to clotted cream) and jam. Enjoy! Nothing like fashion & food!

Post rewind: Cupcakes+Last summer

9 Jun

* One of my favourite things to do is bake. I’ll try and bake anything! Now that I have some more spare time on my hands I’m going to get back into it. Check out my cupcakes from last summer. Nothing goes with fashion like food!

I had that summer feeling today and it took me right back to last summer when I made ( yes I did make them!) these cupcakes.I was so proud of myself I went through a baking phase and baked at every moment I could.! I really should get back into baking asap.Nothing goes better with fashion than food!

Rag & Bone look

28 Apr

I need this whole look! I love the slightly cropped turquoise jeans and the black sheer shirt. I don’t think I’d be brave enough to wear just a bra underneath it though. I’d opt for a bubblegum pink fitted vest top. Bubblegum pink + turquoise = me drooling!

My H&M orange cropped jumper which I’m in absolute love with ! I’ve got so many outfits in my head already.I need this in about 5 other colours!

We trekked down Oxford street then Regent street,Soho,Leicester square,Bond street and back to Oxford street again ! The reason why my feet are aching ! Who told me to wear wedges ?!

First post ! Spring/summer 2011

2 Jan

I don’t think I’ve been so excited for spring/summer to come ! The trends this year are truly the best and i can’t wait to get my fingers on a few key pieces!

Colours:This year we’ll be seeing a lot of citrus tones.The runway saw a lot of tangerine,yellows and limes.Fuchsia has been huge as well twinned with coral.The biggest of all though has been white.As seen on the Givenchy runway.I love white in summer, it adds a certain freshness,a certain calmness which i can’t really explain! Neon is also making a big comeback.

Decades: 60/70s are the inspiration for this S/S .We see clogs,bell bottoms,tunics,silk blouses with billowing sleeves,kitten heels and jumpsuits making an appearance.If you don’t want to go full out with this trend you can go with a pair of cat eye sunglasses,which are hot!

Miu Miu

Cateye sunglasses

Dresses: As every year the maxi dress returns but with an added twist.Sheer ! Which adds a whole level of sexiness.Shift dresses are a key item as well.

Prints: Floral patterns is the biggest print this S/S.From Erdem to Paul smith.

Biker: One of my favourite trends for S/S is biker chic.Tough leather jacket adorned with studs,leather trousers and skirts.Burberry have the best pieces of biker chic this S/S,following on from their successful Autumn/Winter aviator jackets.

Androgyny: Androgyny means having both female and male characteristics.I love how the designers have portrayed this on the catwalk.The cigarette pant,the clean cut blouses and tailored blazers.

Shoes: My other obsession are shoes ! My favourite designer has to be Christian Louboutin.His shoes are literally works of art.His S/S collection is his best by far.He plays around with studs,polka dots,stripes,checks and there is even a tape measure inspired shoe! Creative or what ?!

The best collections in my opinion : McQueen & Prada.Timeless and effortless.
