Cara Delevingne. My new Favourite model

My heart will always be with Kate Moss and her amazing career, but Miss Delevingne has caught my attention with her 'no fuss' attitude and effortless beauty.
20 year old, London born Delevingne is signed to Storm model Management and is currently the face of Burberry.

Being described by British Vogue as "star face" of the autumn/winter 2012-2013 show season, she has appeared on the catwalk for Chanel, Fendi, Oscar de la Renta, Dolce & Gabbana and Burberry. She has also been hand picked to walk down the catwalk as an 'Angel' for the 2012 Victoria's Secret fashion show. Pretty impressive for a 20 year old, who also won Model of the Year at the British Fashion Awards.
Keep up the good work Cara!

Christmas Spirit

Had an amazing time in London this weekend, really got in the Christmas spirit and now can't wait to put up my tree! Our first port of call was the sophisticated and eclectic Liberty emporium. Established in 1875, it is, in my opinion the most beautiful store I've ever seen. With all of its original oak staircases that creak with every step and it's old fashioned glamour, it really was a dream to browse through. The top floor Christmas shop really got me in the mood for our afternoon matinee at The Palladium to watch Scrooge! All in all an amazing Christmas fuelled, family day out!

All That Shines

Finding good costume jewellery is sometimes hard to come by, the choices seem to be high street tat or overpriced Pandora styled charm bracelets.
On a recent trip to London, I stumbled across Butler and Wilson and was in bling heaven! So much sparkle and glitz I didn't know where to start first. But London is 90 miles away from me, I needed somewhere closer, on my doorstep in fact!

I'm a sucker for anything that sparkles and shines, so when I was introduced to a new shop in Peterborough that sold just that, I couldn't say no!
Natasha Fierro and her mum started up Tahlias Closet, a dedication to Natasha's daughter, last year, and have just launched their amazing new website.

Tahlias Closet stocks beautiful jewellery that is sourced from all over the world alongside their own label, which is currently being stocked nationwide in boutiques salons and department stores.
Natasha and her family want the jewellery you buy from them to provide you with Something magical, unique and special, and this is definitely what you'll receive once you have checked out their website!

From Cocktail rings and skull necklaces, to elegant jewelled earrings, there really is something for everyone. Prices starting from £10 and there is currently free delivery on all orders over £150. Perfect for some sparkly Christmas presents for all ages!

Check out the chic website: or visit their shop on Cowgate, Peterborough.

Custom Cons

I am an avid fan of the classic Converse and own many colours, but none as amazing as the ones I purchased in Office last week!

Bluewater was the culprit for this random purchase that I didn't even need! I was sucked in by their window display and quite clearly couldn't resist on this occasion!
Soft black distressed leather with silver studded sides and a leopard print panel running down the back! Amazing.

Within five minutes they'd been on my feet and in a bag and out the shop without a thought to their £85 price tag! Double the cost of a normal pair of Cons, but my god they're worth it. I believe they'll be a limited number of them produced and will sell out fast, being only available at Office.
They also do two other styles, a full fur leopard print version and a leopard print and studded.
Giving the Converse a run for their money are Nike's latest offering, the Blazers. They have brought out the Pony Skin swoosh exclusive edition. The black with pink swoosh are amazing! These are slightly cheaper at £69.99

Autumn outfit

The time has come to partake in the shoe switch over. My boxes of winter shoes and boots have been waiting patiently under the bed until their season. We have been graced with fog, rain and a damp atmosphere for the past week and its pretty damn depressing. This outfit was put together last week when we still had some sunshine!
I like the seasonal colours with the tweed. There is a lot of tweed in the shops and the moment, for both men and women.

Gold pumps : Topshop
Tweed Trousers : New Look
Top : Boutique in Sheffield
Jacket : New Look
Bag : Boutique in Stamford
Spike hair tie : H&M

Love for Louboutins

If I could buy a pair of Christian Louboutin's every week, I would be an extremely happy, and lucky girl. French designer Louboutin has a shoe for everyone, from classic and understated to rich and full of glitz. The acclaimed red leather sole is recognised worldwide and can been adorned on just about every celebrities foot that steps onto the red carpet. I am lucky enough to have been bought a pair of Louboutins from my husband, and definitely want to add to my collection. Louboutins are timeless and classic and with the correct tlc, they could last you a lifetime!
Here are a few of my favourites from the new collection!

Kate Moss : My style Icon!

Kate Moss has been my absolute icon for as long as I can remember. I love just about everything about her, and the fact that she was never the 'perfect' supermodel, makes her even more desirable!
Moss was born in 1974 in the un glamorous city of Croydon, UK, and was discovered 14 years later at JFK Airport by the founder of Storm Model Management, Sarah Doukas.
Moss's career began thanks to photographer Corrine Day, who shot black and white photographs of her for The Face magazine when she was just 16.
Her career sky rocketed after this shoot and everyone wanted a piece of Kate. She became part of the supermodel elite, but in contrast to the curvaceous figures of Cindy Crawford, Claudia Schiffer and Naomi Campbell.
Kate Moss will go down in history as being one of the worlds biggest models and her career is still going strong 24 years on.
I am lucky enough to have one of the original copies of her book - Kate. It's a beautiful picture book of some of the most famous photos ever taken of Moss. A true collectible.
Here are some of my most favourite photographs of my fashion icon!
