A pretty little dose of Thursday inspiration. Off for a meal with some ladies tonight, I’m feeling plenty of tanned Louboutin-ended leg and a punchy red lip.

Loving this very lovely short four day week, one more day until Saturday? The boy and I are trying to come up with something new and exciting to do.. any suggestions bar running away to Vegas are most welcome. Actually…..

Rosie for Autograph..

Ask any girl who loves clothes how much she loves underwear. The right underwear with any particular outfit is crucial to finishing off the look to perfection, as Coco Chanel once said; “it should appear that you are naked beneath your clothes”. For the last year Miss Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has been creating the most beautiful vintage inspired lingerie sold in your Mums favourite local M&S, that not only look seamless and flattering beneath all manner of clothes, but make you feel beautifully feminine and sexy from within.

A new collection launches each season and I always end up scooping most of it up, I seriously cant get enough. The latest collection for Fall brings the two-piece sets, silky teddy’s and fabulous prints we’ve come to love but with the introduction of beautiful soft cup lace bras and a fabulous grey silk pyjamas that will give your £350 pair of Olivia Von Halle sleepers a run for their money.

The full collection is available here, with a full set of smalls for about £35, up to £89 for the silk pyjamas. If you’ve tried anything from the range before, I’m certain you’ll agree the quality is true of a set four times the price.

The Love Affair Continues..

I already devoted a post to declaring excitement/infatuation and a load of other way too excitable ramblings for a new season high street collection last week, but these little beauties have filtered their way under my Zara-radar and left me too hot to not share with you;

The dress is yours for less than £40 and the beautiful palest pink coat will set you back £180, which I think is very reasonable, it’ll ultimately cost you more in dry cleaning..

When it comes to beauty, its so often preached that bare is beautiful. Quite rightly so. But, every now and then so is a bit of colour on your face. Orange has become one of the biggest beauty trends we’ve seen this summer, appearing on the gorgeous and fashion conscious (myself included, of course..) has been sporting it everywhere from toenails and talons to the ends of your hair in a crazy dip-dye craze. You already know I love a good statement lip, to me its the easiest way to work a bright pop into your visage without having to do too much to the rest of it.

Cast your mind back to the SS13 shows last September in Milan, where Moschino models took to the runway breaking all of the beauty rules your Mum had taught you; there was long fluttery lashes, bright orange lips, statement brows and white liner lining each beautiful eye. I’ve been drawing inspiration when “doing” my own face, and when putting my say into styling a shoot or look.

Unfortunately, not many of us look like Cara Delevinge nor feature regularly in high-fashion campaigns where this kinda look is commonplace – even I admit the full on re-creation is a little much for a trip to ASDA but why not channel your inner Cara and go all out for a night of cocktails, there are so many orange tones out there that work for almost any skin tone and paired with a slick of white liner the look is young, fresh and polished.

I cant help stopping and staring at stunning bouquets on the roadside of our local florists, the summer always brings the most beautiful flowers out.

After a few too many drinks on Saturday night, my skin was desperate for some TLC and a decent sleep. The Super Facialist Tea Flower Pore Purifying Clay Mask (which is amazing to use once a week) and a good night sleep had my face back to its previous state come Monday morning.

Sunshine and almost anything make a pretty good combination. Sunshine and a fruit-filled glass of Pimms is literally a little glass of heaven.

Testing out some amazing new products at the office while skimming my way over the delicious images in an old French Vogue made for a very pleasant Monday.
