Boost your mood by looking amazing!

There really isn’t an easier way for a person to communicate who they are to the rest of the world than through their clothes. By carefully selecting the pieces we choose to wear on a particular day or in a particular way, we are sending a message about how old we are, what we like, where we work, and what we dream about. One of the easiest ways to express oneself has always been through clothes and accessories, but what is more, our clothes can affect the way we see ourselves as well.

The Eco Fashion Movement of 2013…

garyharveynewspaperdress feature

“Being green is the new black”…. I know this has been said many times before, but I completely agree with that statement! I don’t think sustainable fashion will ever go out of style. I think we’re just now starting to see more and more evidence of the “Eco Fashion Movement” becoming more popular over the last few years. From the quirky challenges on Project Runway to the noted “true pioneer of eco-chic” Stella McCartney to the increasingly popular DIY fashion and accessory creations on such global websites as Etsy.com… we have seen the idea of being “fashion conscious” take on a very new concept.

My Nail Files Challenge!

Nail files image feature

So this is the newest challenge I have given myself for the next 20 weeks (basically Spring to Fall). I want to try to do weekly posts of new DIY manicures that I have tried, establishing “Nail Files”. I feel like I’ve added a unique and creative accessory to my hands when my nails are painted. With that logic, I would have a new accessory to wear every week right?

Gem Party Nails

Even though the idea of unique manicure colors, nail shapes, and DIY designs have been increasing in popularity over the past three years or so, there is always something more that can be done. I recently watched NYLON MagTV’s latest “Beauty Queen: DIY GEM PARTY NAILS WITH BUTTER LONDON”, Tutorial video by Katie Hughes really caught my eye.

In last year’s blockbuster movie The Hunger Games nail design lovers everywhere could not stop talking about Effie Trinket’s 3D embellishments on her nails. It is now Continue Reading

The New Denim Short

Feature image Ragged Priest short
One of my favourite items of clothing to wear is shorts! Whether that is Denim, leather, sequin, studded, printed, or Aztec, for me shorts always win hands down. Shorts are a big trend this summer and there are so many cute shorts kicking around at the moment.

My favourite shorts are denim cut off shorts as they are just so versatile and can be dressed up or down. This season denim shorts have been customised to the max with studs, spikes, print, dip dye and embellishment, such as these bad boys pairs of spiked shorts from cool vintage brand-The Ragged Priest.

Good girl gone bad studded shorts, The Ragged Priest,    £95.

Or these fab denim Levi shorts, customised with printed fabric… Continue Reading

Style me up at ZARA!

It was a bright Saturday afternoon and massive end of season sale time. I couldn’t think of anything better, but a day out in town with my girls, frolicking around, shopping and styling. As we hopped from one mall to another, one store to another, I came up with the bright idea of playing “style up”. My friend happily agreed and once we started, there was no stopping.

We first hit my favorite high street store, Zara! Zara has been my shopping paradise for the past 5 years now. I almost always find everything I need in that store. With the mercury rising, I first picked high waist vintage shorts in Continue Reading
