Ivy Park by Beyonce

The new Ivy Park by Beyonce collection has landed! Have you guys seen the pieces? I managed to get my hands on a pair of the Ivy Park Y High Rise 3/4 Leggings and think they’re just fab. I also adore these full length Ivy Park Y High Rise Leggings. They’ve almost sold out already though, so if you love something from the collection, snap it up! I like that you can return things to Nordstrom for a refund, I always shop and then send anything back I don’t love – so easy. Check out the whole Ivy Park by Beyonce range, they’re continuing to add lots of new styles.

Sport luxe has been a major trend and it’s set to continue. Speaking to workout wear, I thought I’d also share LaVanila Healthy Deodorant. Over the last year I’ve become so much more aware of what I’m eating and using on my body, there are so many chemicals in products and until you start learning more, you don’t even realize! I love this deodorant because it’s all natural and actually works – I’ve tried so many different ones and some did nothing… this is by far the best. I came across it through reading reviews and forums online and also discovered earth mumma Kourtney Kardashian wears this deodorant too. Have you used an all-natural deodorant before? Is there one you’ve tried and recommend?

To complete the perfect sport luxe look, a pair of mirrored sunglasses (I love the Beach Riot shades in silver flash, as below) and a carry-all tote bag are essentials! You’ll also find some more gorgeous sport luxe pieces from the adidas by Stella McCartney range.

What do you think of the new Ivy Park by Beyonce collection? I love being comfy and find when I’m running errands or relaxing at home, I am often in leggings – so excited for this new Beyonce venture!

2016 Oscars Best Dressed – You Vote!

Who tops your 2016 Oscars Best Dressed list? I always love seeing the red carpet arrivals and as the crème de la crème of award shows, the Oscars never disappoint.

From the stunning gowns a girl can only dream of wearing, to the perfectly painted faces and immaculate hair that comes with having exclusive access to the best glam squads in town. Our favorite stars truly turned it on!

A familiar face on the red carpet is of course veteran awards reporter, Giuliana Rancic. Did you see her gown? Stunning. The clean lines, crisp color and feminine details made for an effortless elegance synonymous with the Oscars. Oh and that back is everything…

Trends to take away? Green was a popular color of the night with Rachel McAdams, Saoirse Ronan, Cate Blanchett and Sophie Turner and Stephanie Bauer wearing this fresh hue that ranged from a rich emerald to a soft seafoam shade. The stars proved black is anything but boring, with Jennifer Lawrence, Julianne Moore, Jennifer Garner and Kerry Washington wearing this sophisticated color. The twist? They upped the ante with luxe textures, lace and embellishments.

Fashion fails? Floral appliqué also seemed to be a thing with Cate Blanchett and Heidi Klum wearing this statement making feature, however I can’t say I’m a fan. I also don’t think Kate Winslet wore the most flattering dress, I love a good metallic, but her liquid-look Ralph Lauren didn’t win me over.

I’ve rounded up my 2016 Oscars Best Dressed, but want to know what you think! Cast your vote and comment below to share your thoughts. Who is your pick from my top five list? Is there someone else you loved that I haven’t listed? I’d love to know!

Fab Favorites: Signature Style – Olivia Palermo Nail Polish

I hope you’ve all enjoyed a fabulous week! I’m so looking forward to the weekend… my Mom, Dad and I are flying to visit my sister and spend a family weekend together. Then I’m super excited for next week, it’s the start of NYFW! I can’t wait to see the shows and new season fashion – and of course share it with you!

When I think of New York Fashion Week, the eternally chic Olivia Palermo always comes to mind. Regardless of the season, Olivia is renowned for making red nail polish her signature and she’s rarely seen without it…

Olivia Palermo style red nail polish

I’ve been hunting down the perfect shade of red for longer than I’d like to admit and after finally tracking down which nail polishes Olivia Palermo wears, I found it! Her favorite shade is Essie Lollipop – and let me be the first to excitedly say, it’s ahhmazing.

The thing I love about reds is they’re universal and can be worn all year round. Summer or winter, breakfast or black tie, you’ll always look perfectly polished in this chic hue. If you’d love a little red in your life, these are the nail polishes Olivia Palermo wears… Olivia Palermo style Red Nail Polish essie lollipop clam bake really red

Steal Her Style – The Best Lauren Conrad Outfit

Over the weekend, I stumbled upon some old episodes of The Hills and adored every minute of it. All that drama… Lauren and Brody, Heidi and Spencer, Audrina and Justin Bobby. Back in the day, I remember I watched it every week! So following this little blast from the past, my love of all things Lauren Conrad has been reinvigorated.

She’s well and truly cemented herself as a style icon. I adore that Lauren’s outfits are so easy to wear. One of the best Lauren Conrad outfits is this leopard and black look below – so perfect for fall! Here’s how to steal her style and recreate this gorgeous outfit yourself…

 

Steal Her Style – The Best Lauren Conrad Outfit:
2.  X-Ring (I also love these gold rings)
3.  J.Brand 915 Skinny Jeans – they have over 90 five-star reviews!  (find lots more black skinny jeans here)
5.  Prada Cats Eye Sunglasses (I have these, they’re stunning!)
6.  Moschino Flats (there are so many cute ballet flats here)

 

What do you think of Lauren’s style, is this a look you would wear? I’d also love to know, did you ever watch The Hills too?

 

Steal Her Style – Nicole Richie Outfit Favorite

I’m always inspired by what celebrities are wearing and Nicole Richie outfit’s are consistently on point. From a somewhat rocky start, she’s firmly cemented herself as a fashion icon. I believe that great style is truly timeless and this outfit below was worn by Nicole a few years ago – proving well chosen pieces never go out of style and are worth the investment.

Every girl should own a chic white blouse, fabulous blue jeans and classic heels. Here’s your ultimate styling inspiration to create an effortlessly polished outfit… I’d love to know, is this a look you’d wear? I definitely would – I adore it!

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…

Beauty 101 – Lauren Conrad Makeup Favorites

From her teen years in Laguna Beach to current day as one of Hollywood’s favorite fashionista’s, the lovely Lauren Conrad always looks stunning. With down-to-earth style and a relaxed, golden, girl-next-door vibe, Lauren’s definitely one to watch for beauty inspiration. I adore discovering which makeup products celebrities use to get their perfect complexion and if you’ve ever found yourself wondering, “what makeup does Lauren Conrad use?” this is the guide for you…

Beauty 101: Lauren Conrad Makeup Favorites…

FOUNDATION
Lauren loves Kanebo Sensai Collection Fluid Finish, explaining she uses this foundation during the day because it’s so lightweight and moisturizing. The brand says it has 55% water content, giving skin a silky sheen.

 

CONCEALER
I can agree with Lauren on this one, I also personally use Cle de Peau Concealer and it is fantastic! The coverage is brilliant, without being too heavy. You don’t need much and I found it works really well under the eyes and to also cover any blemishes. It isn’t cheap, but once I tried it nothing else compared. I tend to spend a little more on critical makeup items, such as foundation and concealer to get the base right and then less on the products like eyeshadow.

 

BRONZER
Lauren always includes this gorgeous bronzer in her make up routine, Chanel Soleil Tan Bronzing Makeup Base. Or for a less expensive option, she also recommends Benefit Hoola Bronzing Powder.

 

BLUSH
To create that pretty peachy glow Lauren is known for, she sweeps a little of the best-selling NARS Blush in Amour on the apples of her cheeks.

EYELINER
Describing it as ‘simply perfection’, Lauren’s all time favorite eyeliner is mark Waterproof Eyeliner.

 

MASCARA
A cheap and cheerful addition to her makeup routine, Lauren likes Maybelline Full n’ Soft Mascara for luscious lashes.

 

LIPS
When the occasion calls for a statement lip and stunning pop of color, Lauren chooses Dior Addict Lipstick. She also loves to keep a lip moisturizer such as Kiehl’s Lip Balm in her bag (I’m also a big fab of that balm, it’s my favorite!).

 

Tell me… are you a Lauren Conrad makeup fan? What do you think of her girl-next-door beauty style? I adore it! If you’ve ever used these products too, please comment and share your thoughts on them.

 

Monday Makeover – Biggest Celebrity Hair Cuts 2015

After Kim Kardashian sparked quite a controversy over her new platinum ‘do in Paris last week, it got me thinking about all the celebrity hair cuts that have taken place in the last month. There has been a lot! It seems everyone wants a fresh new look for 2015. Some are gorgeous, whilst others I definitely won’t be talking to my hairdresser about anytime soon.

While I was looking at the different celebrity hair cuts, I noticed one thing in common – so many have chosen to rock a ‘lob’ (that’s a long bob).  Generally, I think it looks stunning – and obviously Margot Robbie can do no wrong. I’m not sure about Nicole Richie’s new pink pixie, I loved her with a simple blonde lob.

I’m sharing a few of the biggest celebrity hair cut transformations below, I’d love to hear your thoughts. Which new ‘do is your top pick and which makeover can’t you stand?
