It seems like its been such a long time since Shia Labeouf became such a huge success in Hollywood, scoring the lead role in the much anticipated Michael Bay film. But in time for Christmas he will be back on screens, with his great sense of wit and geeky charm.

With superb action and CGI (computer generated images) effects, see good verses evil, when the Decepticon robots land on Earth causing mass destruction, fight against the Autobots, good robots who try to stop them.

Buy your copy Amazon for £12.98 for great entertainment or a great Christmas gift.

Purple Crazy

Thursday, November 29th, 2007

Topshop Purple DressForget black this party season ladies, it’s all about the purple. You can already find stars modeling this seasons alternative to black on the red carpet so it’s going to be a must have colour!

As with every colour there are rules that must be obeyed in order to create the desired look. Basic rule number one, pick a dark purple frock and pair with a black clutch for maximum impact. You have to be careful not to add other bright colours for fear of pushing you into the hippy side of purple so just stick to the one shade.

Oasis Purple DressThe right shoes are essential with purple and you must resist buying matching shades of heels. The best option is black patent or maybe a glittery peep-toe pair for the ultimate party feel. Also, be careful with your make-up, if you go too dark you could end up looking like a try-hard goth – not a good look!

There is plenty of purple already out there on the high street like this Disk Cami top from Topshop. It’s pricey at £50 but is certainly a top that will get you noticed. For the more formal occasion I found this Jet flower halter neck dress from Oasis for £75. It’s the perfect party piece.

Python Arm Candy

Wednesday, November 28th, 2007

Topshop Metallic Bow ClutchIncoming news just updated this week – the metallic pythons huge on the bag radar. The time has arrived for everyone to snap up a fake snake.

Basically all super shiny snakeskin looks the same so there’s no need to have to spend a fortune and there is great opportunity to fake it on the high street this season. The scaly look is a great all rounder come day or night but the key is too keep the rest of your outfit to a minimal so the metallic shine can do the business!! From what I’ve seen in the celeb mags this week, size doesn’t matter when it comes to fake snake – clutch or tote as long as its metallic and scaly!!

Topshop have got a great collection of fake skin arm candy on offer, but my favourite has to be this Metallic Bow clutch. It’s a great size, it shines in all the right places, would brighten up any outfit and it’s just £18.

Fancy Feathers

Wednesday, November 28th, 2007

featherbag.JPGWith the party season fast approaching, we are all in need of that unique party accessory to make us stand out in the crowd and according to all the celebs this season, the accessory to be seen with is the fancy feather.

You can guarantee that every accessory you can think of is now available with a feather touch. So far this season we have seen Sarah Harding in a stunning silver feather dress, Sarah Jessica Parker with a gigantic multicoloured feather bag and not forgetting Melissa George who has been spotted with fancy feather head wear.

If you fancy the feather look for yourself then make sure you keep things simple otherwise there is always the risk of ending up looking like drag queen – and no one can think that is a good look!!!

I have found some great but simple feather accessories to get you started. This Locked luggage bag by Laguna London is made of ostrich feathers and has a fab diamantes lock. This bag is a sure winner to accompany any glam evening frock.featherrose.JPG

If you just wanted the more subtle approach then this Feather Lace rose from Johnny loves Rosie is perfect. It can actually be worn as either a corsage or a hair clip and costs just £18. It would add the finishing touch to the classic black dress.

The range caters for all our beauty needs but for half the size.
