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.

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..

Jeans is a staple for any male, female or child wardrobe. Its simple, it can be dressed up with some heels (ok not if your a child!) it can be dressed down with some sneakers and just an easy solution for going out with friends or staying in- EVERYONE loves jeans and they are one of those items that are here to stay- however the colour is what is up for discussion today.

I think with the delayed summer everyone is getting rather ancy in London so I have noticed the burst of colours that have been coming out despite the grey and rainy weather we have all been subjected to over the past YEAR!

So with that said- we thought we would do a little post on the multicolour jean phenomenon  that has come into pass over the past months gradually.

Blue jeans just do not cut it any more- so we can mix it up with a bit more colour.

 

1. Red

I am on a hunt for a vibrant red pair of jeans- I’m talking about shocking Violent bloody red! A nice skinny red jean.

fergie red jeans

Fergie and Jessica Alba have supported the vibrant red jeans with a simple top and boots/ heels- Red is not worn very much in real life, for one it might be because red is seen as danger, fire, beware and alerting- I remember  being at high school being taught the significance of the red dress worn by the Curly’s wife in Of mice and Men- in the book for those who have not read it- means DEATH- she dies!

But I guess this is just one of those things- its being brought back and so far I think its safe! It certainly looks good!

Of course the rogue sister to Kate Middleton (Pippa)is a fond of the red jean as is Kloe Kardashian – (found here)

Orange

Orange is a summer colour- fruity vibrant and oh so pretty- one of those colours that really stand out on tanned skin- I love it!

Katie Holms has been spotted in a pair of Capri cropped orange skinny jeans and it looks cool, calm and relaxed- she combines it with a large complimentary over sized jeans shirt and some comfy shoes and of course some dark shades… she looks good!

Yellow

Yellow is never worn at all- however the rare occasion it can be found I think it can look very innocent and sweet- its such a soft pastel colour and ultimately if most houses cover the walls in a soft magnolia aka as yellow why don’t we wear it more frequently, its seen as a spring colour but I think as a jean it can be really refreshing and bright.

Ashanti yellow jeans

Ashanti was spotting shoe shopping in her yellow jeans the other day- she looked good in the very strikingly bright colour with a blue bra and sheer over top. BET star Lala– she combined it with a low cut top and cardigan which looked sophisticated and very pretty!

Green

HMMM.. this is an odd one- green the colour of vomit and puke! ha! bogey and the bogey monster! ha- I apologise it is also the colour of some fabulous jeans!

 

What do you think? Depending on the shade- a pastel is easier to get away with but with the right shade like these cute skinny jeans from Ms Selfridge- They are rather cute!

Cheryl Cole was spotted in some green jeans back in the day with her bob- they look rather smart with a blazer and could eventually turn into the new black? – naa I did’t think so either!

Blue- ok

I know that 99% of jeans worn are either blue or black so I won’t focus on the traditional blues but for instance the pale pastel blue- which again is something rather different- bright and fun.

Kim Kardashian has been spotted in a pale pair of skinny jeans which look fabulous its very much holiday-ware or if your brave enough – wear it into the office! You will be noticed in them!

Summer is on this week – its your chance to bring out all the clothing you have stocked up on and the pale blue jeans should be in this list!

Kim just mixed this with a safe beige top bag and shoes- basics of fashion sticking to two colours- it usually works!

Purples

Purple is an odd colour- I know rather popular in the wedding industry but in fashion and particularly jeans – its different.

I rather like purple- very striking colour and comes in such a wide variety of shades from lilac to cadbury.

Actress Hayden Panettiere choose a strong purple which contrasted her blond hair really nicely with a biker jacket and biker shoes- shes got the entire biker chic bad ass look going here and WITH purple jeans! who would have thought..

Other Randoms..

Cameron diaz peach jeans

Cameron Diaz, actress of the hit film bad teacher choose these pastel coloured skin tight skinny jeans which is very subtle colour calm and soothing with a beige jacket. Looks simple yet effective.

pink jeans celebrities alexander burke

Alex B– also choose a coloured jean with a jacket- its like the go to number with a pair of coloured jeans- its simple to assemble and looks smart

I quite like these pink jeans- good job..However not sure about the bra combo-

The billboard awards took place this weekend which saw a flurry of stars on the red carpet in their best finery- some of course looked nicer than others but today I wanted to make note of the singer actress and once upon a time childhood sweetheart Miley Cyrus.

Recently she has been all over town and newspapers/blogs showing off her new slim figure which she claims is down to a gluten allergy, we blogged on this a few weeks back also as it is quite a substantial bit of weight she has lost. To be fair to her it does look good.

So she was on the red carpet with… not much actually!

miley cyrus white jacket red carpet

A simple white Jean Paul Gaultier jacket and the usual red pumps, some simple Jacquie Aiche jewels aligned her neck and fingers and thus the look was complete!

I quite like the chic look of the ice white jacket- if you are wanting to power dress, no doubt this would be a great option with a pair of matching trousers! BUT not so much on its own.. especially not to the office! However Miley has chosen to wear it as a dress anyway.

 

I have to mention the nose ring- REALLY not a big fan- with the trout pout and big hair it just does not look nice- looks rather trashy!

The jacket is nice though as are the shoes- if she wants to come across as a new woman – and mature why didn’t she choose to wear this as a suite combo instead of going against the grain once again?!

We found this smart jacket by paul smith which looked rather dashing for £700.00

On my daily prowl of the shoes online I happened to stop by one of my favourite shoe designers Mr Atwood. I witnessed the latest in his new stunning collection of shoes- and I simply had to inform the world of them! This isn’t the first post and devotion to the Atwood and is not to be the last- but they are simply too good to miss! I think his shoes are ooze femininity and appeal to the masses.

In the collection there are some marvellous shoes but these are the top three of the beauties I loved and paid close attention to today.

3)Aliyza Open Toe Pump Red:

 

These red Dorothy “There’s no place like home” fusion mix with a little tribal African inspired flavour really captures the eye and the heart! With the Aliyza open toe pump. I simply Loved the colourful and vibrant feel that the shoe exudes and how great would these look with a simple summer dress!Simply Divine Darling! Retailing at $1,185.00 A certain investment into the shoe collection.

2)Neela in Black/Cappuccino Nude.

These Jack sparrow pirate jacket inspired shoes are also on the must have shoes list this month. Loving the sling back and peep toe ideal for the approaching summer days and the late warm summer nights- be it a friends BBQ or outdoor party these shoes really are statement pieces for an outfit. Turning something plain into that extra edge. RRP $915.00

1)Glamazon T Strap in Pomice

Oh yes- GLAMAZON indeed it is!- No doubt wearing these Will make you feel untouchable, on top of the world and very very sexy. Ankle cuffs are very cute, I like to call jewellery for the ankle and with a short flowing dress or even a pair of skinny jeans it just WORKS. The Beige colour means it can be worn with practically anything and the peep toe makes it perfect for the summer months. The Glamazon is my favourite of the three because of the power these shoes have- amazing that an item could have power but these certainly give the impression of presence and glory. Who run the world? women in great shoes!! $1,350

Ex high school musical star has all grown up and is looking fabulous in this bright color blocking dress for the premier of her ex costar and friend Zac Effron’s latest film “The lucky one”.

Ashley looked stunning and noticeably very slim in the silk dress by Naven (Revolve clothing) which retails at $286. Looking very refreshed in the bright peach and sky blue combo dress she happily posed for pictures.

I think what works really well in this outfit is the simplicity and the simple bright colours. No doubt this would work in sunny LA- dull city like London- not so much! especially not today- but hey summer still has to come right!
I loved Ashley’s shoes which went perfectly with the peach of the top by Christian Louboutin called the Burlina retailing at $895.00.

Well here is more is the Tisdall in her cute outfit

It appears as if Miley has stripped off her demons as she reveals a new slim svelte and happy figure as she was spotted leaving a pilates class in West Hollywood (LA) today. She has recently tweeted about her weight loss claiming it was because she is going gluton free however nutritionists claim this is just a fake answer and will in fact cause weight gain- we all know she must be on a type of diet that doesn’t involve eating- Atkins or equivalent clearly cutting carbs and exercise I would guess is her method.

Its not particularly easy to loose weight so my hats off to her it has left her looking back on form healthy and sane!

I rather like this look she has adopted the skull jumpsuit and round shades is rather cute- her accessories and black boots are simple and cool. She at last looks like a happy healthy 19 year old! what do you think? good summer sun outfit?

Solange Knowles seems to be everywhere at the moment, her modelling career is taking off, her fashion has had a complete 180 and it seems as though people are finally paying attention to the other Knowles sister. She was at yet another press event this week in a very bright and vibrant outfit from the Ferragamo Spring 2012.

Salvatore Ferragamo had held an event to celebrate the reopening of the flagship store on Fifth Avenue New York city yesterday evening and Solange paid homage to the designer turning up in his fresh 2012 collection which is full of very bright colours and colour blocking.

With summer around the corner- colour is very important and with any of these pieces a incredibly vibrant ensemble can be formed.

Including that worn by Solange : She arrived in a very shocking cadbury purple over sized suit jacket alongside bright shiny red slim fitting cropped trousers, which worked to highlight the Blejan bi-colour sandals also by Ferragamo. The socialite wore a Ferragamo Spring 2012 look with a Maki Oh blouse.

To be honest, I am not keen on this look- the trousers the colours the over sized jacket, it just makes me think 🙁

But Solange seems happy as she posed with models throughout the night.

The collection is a fun and colour shocking mix of loveliness : here are some of my favorites!

My Saturday night ritual began with some light entertainment tv from the American Idol 7 contestants and judges and one in particular that caught my attention was the opening introduction. Jenny from the block strutted her stuff in a very  revealing yet demure Catherine Malandrino dress in last nights show.

She certainly knew she looked fabulous in the gown as she posed alongside her male co-judges for the seventh season of the live performance show last night.

The dress has some very revelling aspects about it- that being a sheer net lace veil which bared cut outs of flesh her toned and buffed flesh to the world whilst stripes of  horizontal black leather covered the rest of her. To be fair, Jennifer Lopez had everything was hidden, heck you see less on any children’s advert these days. I thought she  was very elegantly put together and she combined the black dress with a smart Louboutin spiked heel and subtle understated jewellery. The dress was rather short but ultimately she sits behind a desk and you cannot see much else!

She has a good body so why not show it! I also think it looks much better on her than the model at the runway show. It also looks as though it had been altered to have been made a tad longer on the legs.

The Catherine Malandrino dress is from the 2012 collection, however after doing a quick search in the Malandrino store I happened to spot this gown

Mixed Pointelle Maxi Dress

Which has a lot of inspiration of the Jennifer Lopez dress- retailing at $600 the dress is the maxi version – and it is for those who want a similar look now!

Its very much spring here in London- (despite it feeling like winter) but we can’t help getting ready for summer as the days continue to grow in length and the temperature SLOWLY rises. With that said- everyone is out looking for their next bikini or swimwear for this years summer beach holiday. No doubt the ladies are all at the gym working on getting that body back- I know I have been attending the gym like a minor addict trying to work off the winter migration weight I have gained so with that said- this post has been created after seeing an abundance of the American ladies out in their droves by sunny beaches or gorgeous swimming pools in their unique swimming suites.

Beyonce:

We all know the queen Bea has just had her baby (supposedly) and she is one for the beach, she has been quoted she loves boats and the sea as she is able to escape, well, with that said- here she is spotted yesterday in a rather demure black swimming costume which hid the correct areas whilst showing off the rest.

She looked good in her dark round shades hair pinned back and minimal jewellery. She took a quick dip in the pool then returned to her husband to sun her skin. The black swimming costume came with a little mini skirt to cover anything she did not want the world to see, which I think is a good call and an awesome bikini.

Kim Kardashian:

Well, after much crowd control from her 70 day marriage it seems as though Kim is on the up again, she has been spotted back and forth to the gym in recent weeks in the terrible leggings, but it seems as though its paid off. The Kardashian clan took another filmed holiday to the Dominican Republic where she debuted her awesome extremely curvy figure in a two piece bikini.

She was later spotted in an alternate light blue bikini which complimented her skin very well. With the hard work she has put into her body- there is no doubt that most bikinis would suit Kim at the moment. The halter neck white trim navy blue bikini is my favourite- as it really suits her shape and accentuates her figure to the best its been in months.

Ashley Tisdall,

High school musical actress, now 26 Ashley Tisdall was also one to take to a swim suit this past week and she also had a good figure to show in a mini bikini with a cross over back- she looked very glam in glasses and a tan sitting pool side in Santa Barbra she opted for a pair of aviator sun glasses and a simple updo and took to the water to flaunt her good shape.

Naomi Campbell

naomi campbell black bikini slim body

Naomi, has maintained a stable weight for a lifetime now, and she still looks good at the age of 41, good genes, height and the odd master cleanse diet helps her keep her great figure. She was spotted hanging out with her Russian partner on yet another vacation in a tidy black simple bikini. Her body is that good she does not need to bother with all the thrills of crazy coloured bikinis. The simple halterneck tie did the job perfectly.

Evelyn Lozada

I’m not a huge basketball fan wife, in fact I have only seen a few of the episodes but even one of the ladies from the show Evelyn took to the beach in a two piece bikini and sarong to show off her buff figure.

She went for the most colourful option out of the women seen on the beach this week, opting for a pink and leopard skin bikini which I personally found grotesque. It looked more like a bra than something to wear to the beach- (may have been!) She too adopted aviator glasses which always looks great..

Kim Kardashian seems to be taking a media break recently, at least from our eyes- we try not to blog too much on the Kardashian sisters simply because they don’t really do too much- but today is an exception.

Kim was spotted earlier the day before with suspecious red botox marks on her face as she left one of the best botox locations in LA- and it makes sense- she was heading out to the Valentino opening launch party on Rodeo Drive.

The 31, year old reality star turned up in a black and white dress by Lela Rose and it was rather demuour and sophisticated for what Kim usually wears.

lela rose black and white gown kim kardashian

Some may say boring but I rather like the gown, it has the right amount of intregue and confusion with its simple A shape body and skirt.

A real eye catcher with the pattern and it has been taken from Lela’s fall 2012 collection. The queen of reality was keen to show of her intense diet and twice a day workouts in the gown and it shows her work has paid off!

Having a look through Lela’s other collections really highlighted how awesome this womans designes are.

We loved the other monochrom dresses she had on the runway..

What do you think of the other dresses in the collection?
