Dream Closet – Inside Khloe Kardashian’s Fitness Closet


I’ve seen some amazing closets in my time (thanks, Pinterest), but I’ve never seen anything quite so exquisite as Khloe Kardashian’s fitness closet!

This 150 square-foot closet is like being in an incredible boutique. Created by LA Closet Design, this space has it all… from the Fiji water fridge, to the glass accessories display case and the L-shaped shelves for her ahhmazing collection of sneakers (I was pretty chuffed with my four pairs, Khloe’s is on another level!).

With multiple closets in her sprawling LA residence, she’s living a fashion-lovers dream! Kardashian says this closet is one of her most adored rooms, “I’m in love with my fitness closet! It’s my favorite closet. I genuinely show it off to all of my friends when they are over,” she said in an interview with Self magazine.

After discovering this, I simply had to share it with you! So ‘pin’ away gals, you’ve never seen anything like Khloe Kardashian’s fitness closet before…

Fab Favorites Link Up: The Denim Edit – Premium Jeans on Sale


Happy Friday! I hope you’ve all enjoyed a beautiful week. There’s lots of sales on at the moment and one thing I always shop for is premium denim. It may seem unusual, but I actually often shop online for my jeans – sometimes one store doesn’t have the size you need and it’s just annoying. Yes, occasionally it can be hard to know what size you are (I order two if I’m unsure), but I love that so many places have free returns (it’s so easy!). There are a lot of jeans on sale and here’s the edit you need to see… I own quite a few of these pairs and I can vouch they really are amazing.

Style Sessions Link Up – The Best Gold Metallic Dress


Welcome to the Style Sessions Fashion Link Up! This week I’m sharing a little flash back to one of my favorite dresses. I adore all things metallic and as soon as I saw this gold metallic dress, I was in love!

With a statement dress you don’t want your accessories to compete, so I chose neutral heels, stud earrings and added a little color with bright lipstick (it’s also Kourtney Kardashian’s favorite color). If you’re after a little metallic of your own, you’ll find more gorgeous dresses here.
