So the Bold and the absolutely Beautiful Rihanna stepped out last night for the CFDA awards in New York.

She wore a transparent dress with matching briefs to the ceremony and it really has left social media buzzing with excitement.

Basically naked Rihanna posed confidently for photographs clutching her winnings.

Later on that night a video appeared on instagram of her Twirking after winning her award.

Adam Selman was the creator of the eye catching gown- adorned with 230,000 Swarovski crystals with matching gloves, hat scarf and pink fur stole (I guess they forgot the bra!)

So the other day my mother came over with a sly look on her face and a bright red l.e.d light on her wrist. I say sly because she has a small addition with buying electronics and knows I will ask for the reason for her latest purchase. I will admit I behave more like a financial guard than a daughter when it comes to her buying decisions.

After a short while of ignoring the massive red watch elephant in the middle if the room I go ahead and ask her how much it was. Choosing to ignore my normal barrage of question she presses the button and shouts “I’ve walked 3000 steps today”

Slightly intrigued with the bright red display I listen on..

“it tracks my activities, it’s waterproof (not that she swims)” I quickly interject and say it’s waterproof not heat proof you cannot wear it in the sauna.

My mother likes to purchase waterproof mp3 watches for when she’s at the gym sauna..and she has gone through about five of these quite expensive pieces of equipment and it occurred to me the other day is that they are waterproof but not heat proof to such a degree for them to survive the extreme conditions in the sauna which is why they give up hope after a meer two months..
I digress!

She happened to mention it was a polar and then my own knowledge of polar then assisted me in potentially finding out more;

I like to train at the gym with my polar watch. I’ve had two in my life time in six or seven years they have served me well. In fact I cannot workout in the gym without it as I feel I’m not able to track my workouts so it is wasted but of time!

So now I’m more open in listening.

I do some research on the watch and discover it does a fundamental thing the polar F9 doesn’t do.. Tracks every day activities to get a complete overall calorie expenditure.

“I like it already “I think in my head..
It’s sleek design and illuminating red led display which lights up when pressed.

The trophy and congratulations you get for the completion of your daily tasks.
It all seems pretty nifty.
We watch the promo ad which adds to my excitement and it retails at about £80.00 from amazon. Not bad.

To cut a long story short my polar is on it’s way! I’m not sure if I will keep it as I like having my heart rate monitored at the gym and having everything stored on the watch to tell me how hard I trained over the week but the loop is meant to connect to my iphone and keep everything in a more modern manner. It seems like a fantastic idea.
My mum loves telling us how many steps she’s taken in a day so for her she loves it.
It’s aesthetically pleasing on the eyes and mixed in with the right amount of technology it seems like a good purchase for a sport and lifestyle watch.

So.. This leggings trend that has been going on for the past 5 years seems to be staying and not going anytime soon..

I quite like leggings because they are easy to wear the type of item you don’t need to iron just put on and go.. thats my kind of fashion on a lazy late day.

However whilst having a discussion with my friends she believed that leggings shouldn’t be worn without a long top or dress as it is pretty much a thin piece of material that doesn’t cover much. I have to agree with her on the cheaper imitations of leggings that I have seen whilst out and about in London which are really bad and terribly thin and next to nothing..In the light almost turning transparant.

YUCK..

However in my opinion the thicker leggings can be really cute sexy and such a great way to show off slim toned legs.

Paired with a cute set of heels black leggings can look top model.

Since this leggings trend has been around for such a long time the designers are trying to switch it up with more unique creations.

Rihanna back in the day with beige leggings..even though they are casual items rihanna spruces it up with narrow toed heels and it looks smart.

Leggings are versatile and now that you can get such crazy and unique designs the styles are endless.

So its finally here… winter..blah! I m not a winter wonderland girl, I am more of a super summer chic..happy go lucky.. less (clothing) is more! and winter doesn’t really allow you to adopt that motto unless you live in LA.

London is more of a layers thick coat, balaclava and multi layering of gloves! so with that said this post brings us nicely onto the mother of the moment Kim Kardashian with her latest accessory (The baby) and her knee height brown boots.

On closer inspection we found these to be a Phillip Lim brown £875.00 leather back strap boot.

She choose to comfortably wear the boots with jeans but knee highs work especially well with leggings.. I would say stay away from mini skirts as you’ll probably look a bit like you have been taken from the Pretty woman set! That’s not a good look during the day! or outside ANYTIME. (KK

Its great when you get to see celebrities just walking about minding their own business and running errands like the rest of us. Today we are positing a few of the celebs that were doing just that in New York City.

The big apple is a great place to catch random actors and A list celebrities.. you never really know who is behind the next pair of large sunglasses..

Today we have..:

 

Sarah Jessica Parker

The sex and the city star is always about NYC looking rather casual in jeans and boots.. She popped into Duane Reade for some much needed essentials.

Our British beauty Lily Cole was seen leaving the Bowery Hotel at the Upper East Side looking fresh faced without make up in a large oversized cardigan.

jessica bielCasual Fridays are clearly popular New York!

The last spotting we decided to tell you about is Olivia Palermo, in a lovely coral peach coat perfect for spring as the weather starts t turn and blue skies are above.

Olivia+Palermo+seen+walking+dog+BrooklynRipped jeans and a dog in tow its the perfect accessory.. Cute!

I love the glasses.. as summer slowly comes round here in London I’m looking for my next pair of glasses and these look awesome.

I personally love jackets, I love how they can instantly make you look smart when paired with a tidy skirt or suite trousers and make you smart casual when matched with jeans. If cut the right way the jacket can really be a statement piece and we have done a few searches to come up with a few of our favourite on sale at the moment.

Belstaff Jacket

A brand that is a new one brought to our attention due to their luxury linens and shapes in jackets and coats.

green belstaff jacket

Very military inspired the double breasted button and contemporary leather trimmings make the jacket striking whilst the moss green colour can be combined with a multitude of other colours.green belstaff jacket

Timeless and can be worn throughout the approaching spring, summer and autumn weathers- perfect for the approaching months.

Retailing at £699.00

Joseph 

This powerful jacket really creates a showpiece item for any plain pair of jeans- again very military styled – enter a room in this and you will dazzle and shine! The jacket is available from the Joseph site for £695.00.

Holland Cooper

Tweed is sexy and its timeless- this is a strong jacket very British made with tweed- modernised with its shape and style, the autumn winter 2013 jacket can be combined with skinny jeans and knee high boots- london glam.

holland cooper jacket

Certainly pulling from equestrian fashion Holland Cooper is renowned and this lovely jacket is no exception. The coat is retailing at £699.00

Belmain Pink Jacket

We chose this solely for the colour, its not often you get to see a pink jacket thats actually..cool!

belmain pink jacket

This Belmain luxury cotton silk blend with the ultra structured silhouette and ice cream hue and sexy curve enhancing layers can be a fab choice for fashion lovers. Retailing at £1,500 match with a plain pair of jeans and heels.

Donna Karen

Donna Karen asymmetric black jacket is our favourite due to its shape and diamond embellishment  last year we wrote about the popularity of drop hem dresses and this coat matches that theory. This is certainly a dressed up jacket compared to the rest and the collection we chose. The drop hem also means it slims your waist and reduces your hips.

So Justin Bieber has been in the news a lot this past week, what with his birthday that ended horribly with it closing due to underage guests, his tour visiting London arriving 2 hours late for his angry screaming fans and random freak outs at the paparazzi. So the teenager has to be in the top clothing and accessories whilst out and about.

Whats caught our attention, due to its bold print is his Leopard print backpack he choose to wear whilst leaving his self proclaimed “worst birthday ever”

If you have not noticed sneakers are currently the way forward for a lot of celebrities that are doing the natural casual relaxed look at the moment so we had to post on the Giuseppe Zanotti italian shoe genius and the creator of these dazzling sneakers retailing at $600 a pair

The silver metallic reptile skinned shoe is not only eye catching but a true modern day “I here to kick butt”  shoe. With bright neon green accents and hints these shoes are sure not to be missed by anyone.

The zip is a major focal point in these shoes as when unzipped it releases even more of the accented colour.

The shoe is also available in the a black and silver version which has been popular with singer Cassie.

You know that feeling when you walk past someone, be it on the tube, whilst walking down the street, in a shop or just in a small confined area and you take in a great big whiff of their perfume and think “oohhhh she smells nice” We all love that feeling, and the other day a randomer happened to say those exact words to me and it is the foundations of this post on my top 5 perfumes at the moment.

 

5.

Kimora Lee Simmons- Fabulosity

 

Yes- the queen of fabulosity has generated a really beautiful scent, I am never a fan of big celebrity endorsed perfumes but this one is actually really nice- and the perfume the randomer commented on last week. With such a good price tag I lovingly squirted a lot of the perfume over my clothes, hair and my “aura” which is spraying the air and walking through!

A good 6 or 7 squirts did the trick to create my beautiful surrounding of smell!

The scent is sweet lovely and at £18.00/ $25 its worth the beautiful glow and the oohh she smells nice face you get whilst walking in close proximity to any stranger!

4.Dune

This count down is prooving very hard as my perfumes all mean the world to me! A slight dramatisation but they are all pretty nice smells that I adore.

So choosing number 4 as Dune by Dior, came pretty hard.

Its a classic perfume, very rich, wealthy scent which warms to you as you wear it, I find it to be long lasting throughout the day.. It is a perfume that I wear on realy nice occasions as it is simply delightful.

Due to the branding of the Dior it retails at £37.00 however you will only need a few squirts of the perfume to get the desired “mmm” effect.

 

dune dior perfume3. Tresor by Lancom

 

Tresor is another favourite- very very similar to the effects of choice number 4, Dune- wealthy, warm smell which everyone always responds well to. It’s longevity and distinct nature of the perfume really makes it a favourite of mine. Retailing at £40 and up  it would be a good choice for yourself or as a gift to your mother, girlfriend, other half or friend but you only need a few spritz to make yourself smell as though you have bathed in roses.

2. Cartier Delices,

I was given this perfume as a gift which was rather surprising as I had not really noticed Cartier for perfume but on pumping the first spray it was music to my nose! a melody to my nose and really just a sweet perfume, so sweet I wanted to eat it ( of course I wouldn’t in fear of death or at the very least a very bitter mouth) but this was a very sweet perfume- its young its fruity and really  a nice choice for going out for drinks or the cinema-  £35.00 a bottle.

1. Gucci Rush

has to be my old time favourites- one of the first perfumes I ever purchased as a young teenage- at one stage I felt it was my own signature scent! A good friend once told me when ever he smelt the Gucci Rush smell it instantly made him think of me.. I guess that shows how much I chose to wear it- Instant love, only thing with it- is that it is a bit on the popular side that almost everyone has worn it and I guess for my friend he would smell it on a lot of people and I guess think of me a lot..

gucci rush perfume smells nice

Again due to branding it is not the cheapest of perfumes retailing at £29.00 and up.

 

 

It is amazing how smells can conjure up emotions and thoughts and people- so its important you get the smell correct- No one wants to be known for smelling bad HA! Any one of these perfumes will leave beautiful thoughts in a strangers mind about how amazing you smell.

So stop buy the stores and pick your favourite today..
