The Hottest New It Shoes

Friday, March 16th, 2007

It Shoes from Life and Style Magazine

This season celebs seem to love chunky platforms with peep toe fronts that are either sling backs or have a delicate strap around the ankle. This print from Life & Style Magazine shows Beyonce, Eva and Penelope all looking fabulous in this style of shoe. It also seems that the bigger the platform the better so if you’re quite short then this will be great for you.

I think the group of red shoes are my favourite and Beyonce looks so stunning in that red dress. The strap around the ankle makes her look so elegant and tall. These are definitely a must have of spring 2007, see more It Shoe Styles over at Life & Style Weekly.

Anything Is Possible

Thursday, March 15th, 2007

Michelle DewberryIf you enjoyed last year’s series of The Apprentice but were left wondering how a checkout girl from Hull managed to turn her life around so dramatically, I’d recommend reading Michelle Dewberry’s autobiography. Titled ‘Anything is Possible’, it really makes you believe well.., anything is possible.

I didn’t realise just how hard Michelle’s life had been – with the loss of her sister, a violent and abusive dad, her battle with depression and bulimia – but somehow she decided she would not be a victim, rather she would believe in herself and reach her unbelievably tough personal goals. I found myself inspired by her story – if you work hard enough and believe you deserve just the same as anyone else then you can turn your life around.

Michelle believes you can be anything you want to be, never give up and you will succeed! In the back of her book are 10 tips to success – if you’re lacking motivation or want to make a career move but are too scared, give this book a read.

Available from Amazon for £8.99

A Bit of Sparkle!

Thursday, March 15th, 2007

Platinum Clad Diamoniqe RingI absolutely love rings and have just bought this one for only £17.90 (inc. packaging). It is called the Epiphany Platinum Clad Diamonique SS Princess Anniversary Ring from QVC which is fantastic as you get a 30 day money back guarantee, so if for some reason you don’t like it (which I can’t imagine you won’t) just pop it back in the box and follow the easy return instructions.

It’s made from sterling silver but clad in Platinum with 5 diamonique sparklers, so looks really impressive on your finger. Sizes range from I – V and it comes in a lovely box so it’s great for a gift if you can bear to part with it! For more info go to www.qvcuk.com and see item no: 658204.

The Future of Fashion

Wednesday, March 14th, 2007

Shoes by Christian LacroixI have just been over to the Vogue website for my weekly dose of the latest fashion news and saw these very unusual platforms in the Spring/Summer 2007 Collection. I think they’re fantastic, not sure if I’d have the confidence to wear them out in front of other human beings but if you want to make a statement then this style is definitely in.

The shoes were designed by Christian Lacroix, a French fashion designer, for his summer collection, they have wonderful jagged edge heals and pom poms and tassels on the top. With a pair of dark cropped trousers and matching big beads you’ll be the centre of attention for sure.

Cotton Candy Sleepwear at Graffiti Pink

Tuesday, March 13th, 2007

Cotton Candy SleepwearI recently discovered Graffiti Pink; a website dedicated to selling top quality lingerie, sleepwear and accessories for women. They have a great selection of items and really do have something for everyone. I purchased some sleepwear from their Cotton Candy range and was really impressed with the presentation and delivery of the product.

The garment is baby pink and comes packaged in a cute pink bag with the words Graffiti Pink embroidered on the front. The sleepwear is extremely soft and very comfortable and also reasonably priced. If you have a raunchier side then check out their Carol Malony Range, to view all their lingerie items click here.

Scarlet Hearts RBK

Friday, March 9th, 2007

Soon there will be no professions of actress, singer, model, presenters, there will just be one single job of “Celebrity”, which is a bit sad I think. Scarlett Johansson has been the latest victim of “I want it all syndrome” by stepping into the growing industry of celebrity modelling. She is not only appearing in Reebok’s campaign but has designed her own line of the sports wear called “Scarlet Hearts RBK”.

According to Scarlett her range is designed as more than just gym wear – something you can slip on to go and meet your friends for coffee. Her designs feature plenty of neon colours which are seen all over the catwalks this season, and feminine cut hoodies baseball t-shrits and leggings as well as sneakers. Reebok are thrilled to have Scarlett on board, Paul Harrington, president and CEO of Canton, Mass.-based Reebok commented “Scarlett embodies the pulse points of our brand—individuality, authenticity and a life lived to the fullest in perpetual motion.”

Alton Towers Adrenalin Week

Wednesday, March 7th, 2007

Alton Towers LogoThe first Alton Towers Adrenalin Week will run from Monday 19th March to Friday 23rd March and apparently you are guaranteed to get on the four most popular rides three times. That means three goes on Air, Rita, Oblivion or Nemesis if you can fit that many in. Personally I think I’d be feeling a bit ill after all that time being hurled in the air but I’m sure there’s many of you who will love it.

Last Minute currently have a great offer on tickets, £20 for adults reduced from £32 normal entrance fee and £16 for children (usually £22). If you haven’t been to Alton Towers before then this is a great chance to see what all the fuss is about.

Naomi Campbell Mopping Floors

Wednesday, March 7th, 2007

Supermodel Naomi Campbell has pleaded guilty to assaulting her housekeeper and has been punished with five days worth of community service. Naomi threw a mobile phone at her maid in anger and will begin the community service later in March.

The job will involve cleaning the floors of a sanitation warehouse, if that doesn’t bring her back down to Earth, I don’t think anything will. She has also been advised to take some anger management classes, I do actually feel quite sorry for her. Read more over at BBC News.
