Christian Louboutin Nail Varnish Collection

Christian Louboutin is famous for the red leather soles of his incredible shoes, accompanied by leather handbags and clutch bags, he has branched out into the beauty avenue by launching a range of stunning nail varnishes. 

At present there is the signature red, Rouge, that is available and the rest of the collection to be showcased next month in September.

The brush handle is an unusual 20.5cm, the same height of the iconic 'Ballerina Ultima' the highest Louboutin ever made! 

As a pair of Louboutins, the varnishes are pricier than average at £36 a bottle, but you are buying into a piece of unique history with this first collection!

Victoria's Secret Bluewater Grand Opening

I adore Victoria's Secret ever since I stepped foot in one of their stores in America. So pink and pretty but sexy and luxurious. We all wish we could be a VS angel don't we?!
I am yet to visit a store in the Uk and have been meaning to take a visit, but tonight, Victoria's Secrets sprung a surprise on me! 
Myself and Kelly nipped into Bluewater after work to buy my husbands birthday presents, in our routine way, we enter the centre and walk to the right, but tonight we switched it up and walked to the left! Daring I know!
Before we knew it we had stumbled across something amazing!!! There in front of us with all it's glossy beauty was the UK's next addition to the Victoria's Secret family, a massive store in Bluewater! 
We rushed up to the roped off entrance asking when the store was opening, she replied that it was friends and family but we were allowed in!!! 
Eeeek! We were so excited! The store was amazing! It was like stepping back to my holiday in America, winged maniquinnes, diamante encrusted bras and a whole beauty and fragrance area. We were greeted by at least 5 members of eager and equally excited staff. I could have spent thousands, but had to restrain myself! 
I picked up a few cute bits and treated myself to the new frangrance brought out this week. 
Next door to the main VS store is the seperate Pink store, the only stand alone Pink store in the UK.
We can't wait to visit again and treat ourselves to some cute bikinis, sexy pj's and some stunning underwear!
VS is located on the ground floor of Bluewater.

Sixties Gucci Glam

Frida Giannini brought the swinging sixties to the catwalk with her use of Jean Shrimpton lookalike models for the Gucci show at Milan Fashion Week. 
Her use of era style pastels, mixed with textures of leather and jewels made this collection transport you back to London with the sophistication of Monaco in the Sixties. A line dresses made from soft Napa leather in shades of cornflowers blue and sage green were twinned with luxurious fur coats. 
For the evening, the dresses were plainly cut but embellished with jewels and worn with knee high boots.
This show really took me back to the The Swinging Sixties but with all the Gucci glam!

Balmain Army Fever

Paris fashion week goes off with a bang with the fashion crowd flocking over to the french capital for the next installment of what's hot in fashionville! 
I'll keep you updated of shows that catch my eye and pieces that I can see will be instant hits for the high street.
First up is French born fashion house Balmain with current head designer Olivier Rousteing.
I absolutely loved the army inspired colours mixed with the bondage style leather skirts and baggy sweatpants.
Sexy as ever, Rousteing brought flashes of colour to the collection in the form of orange feathered jumpers and canary yellow bondage dresses. Worn by Rosie Huntingdon-Whiteley and Joan Smalls, this show was full of expence and luxury that spilled from the models into the fabric and along the catwalk!

Kate Moss for Lui

40 clearly has no boundaries, as my absolute idol Kate Moss, poses naked again for French men's magazine Lui.
With her sun kissed blonde hair and tattoos designed by Lucian Freud, Kate looks amazing in the fold out three page cover! 
Incroyable Miss Moss!

Testing testing, one two.

I would say that I am a really keen photographer, I take pictures of everything whether it be on my iPhone, my Canon compact or with my new amazing Canon EOS M Compact system camera!
My sister bought me a great book for my photography bug called Photocrafty, I just need to sit down and have some quiet time to read it and take it in so I can teach myself about light, depth and different shot styles.
Here's some photos of me testing out shots with my new love!

Flower Arranging

Fresh flowers in your home really add a air of elegance to your room and I try to have at least two bunches in the house at all times!
I picked up some beautiful roses from a local market on Saturday in stunning pale pink with green tinged edges and at only £2.50 a bunch! An Amazing price for such pretty flowers. I believe the man said they may have fallen off the back of a lorry and he got them cheap! He did whoever give me good advice regarding the water for the roses, to use lukewarm water, not cold!
With their super long stems, I just wanted to keep them natural and show off their beauty in a plain vase. I also bought a bunch of 'babies breath' for a more vintage look in a shabby chic jug. 

Slack no more!

Christmas has been and gone, winter seems to be on its way out and the bulbs are pocking their heads through soil. Spring is on its way!
I have been a bit slack with my blog, too interested in reading everyone else's and sitting on my bum in front of the fire, but that's not just what I've been up to though! 
My best friend Vicky is expecting her first baby in 3 weeks so Amy and I decided to throw her a small baby shower last week. 
Her house is amazing and really retro so we decorated it to suit making home made crepe paper bunting and the classic helium ballons.
We had home baked biscuits, crust less sandwiches and a luxurious cream sponge cake, glasses of wine and copius amounts of tea in cute china tea cups! In between all the cake eating and tea drinking, we played a variety of fun games, these consisted of guessing the baby food (hideous stuff), identifying the substance in the nappy (yuk) and trying to guess the size of Vicky's pregnancy bump!
It was a lovely relaxed fun afternoon which we all thoroughly enjoyed! So excited to meet baby Emmerson!
