Clean Eating Made Easy - What I Eat in a Day

   I see so often people falling short of their goals because they're either constantly dieting & depriving their bodies of what it truly needs, or they just feel at a loss as to what to eat. So I thought today I would share with you exactly what I eat in a week, to show you just how easy it is! So ditch those naff diets - its time to fuel your body with what it needs, to enjoy what you're eating & to understand why you're eating it!
   Before I begin, there's a few important things to note...

AW 16/17 Trend Report - Part 3 - Concept

   This season I have noticed 4 recurring themes, inspired by culture, OTT personas & locations. These have included the overly feminine, minimalism, Eastern florals & Western fantasies. My personal favourite is the overly feminine. Take a look & see what inspires you the most this season...
Twin Peaks
If you have never seen the David Lynch TV program, Twin Peaks, then go watch NOW! This surreal crime drama, set in a small American logging town, is anything but usual. It is an eerie, disconcerting & extremely addictive classic that you'll never forget. Anyway, enough of the program, it is it's styling we're interested in. This is small town early 90's American fashion, where diner dresses, bulky hand knits & your boyfriends letterman's jacket are your style staples. Watch the program & you'll understand!

AW 16/17 Trend Report - Part 2 - Cut & Fabric

Tie It Up
This trend is all about adding layers & texture to a garment, through knots, twists & ties, to manipulate the look of a classic garment. Fabrics with a weight or a certain stiffness are best here, as they allow for more extravagant silhouettes & creative sculpting of the fabric. This is quite a unique look, so if you can't find anything like this, try manipulating simple garments yourself, to create something much more memorable!

What To Expect? AW 16/17 Trend Report - Part 1 - Colour

   What do they say? Some things are worth the wait... And this is one of them! I have scouted all the shows from AW 16/17 to bring you an edit of the most creative, individual & spectacular pieces the designers have to offer for this season. So sit back & enjoy this 3 part series, that I hope may inspire you to explore fashion, even in the most bleakest of weathers!
A 70's Hue
There's no mistaking that when the weather turns cold, we find warmth in our colour choice. My particular favourites are the burnt umber, coppers & fiery oranges seen this season. This colour palette combined with a nod to the 70's - which was hugely popular in the summer - offers us a range of beautiful dresses, suede boots & statement knitwear.
