A SINCERLY 'ROGUE' MOMENT



Rihanna's new Rogue scent seems to be the perfume of the moment that has sent many fans and fashion lovers tongues-a-wagging. Launched in mid-October last year the perfume is still high in demand and is selling fast in a select few UK retail establishments. 

I managed to snatch one up for myself a few weeks ago and I'm literally obsessed with the smell. I've worn it everyday since. 



Rogue eau de parfum embodies demure feminie qualities but yet carries into an audacious new moment. Rihanna created it will all women in mind for every kind of mood because "we all want to project our true selves". The scent is flirtatious and sensual containing accords of lemon blossom, cyclamen. jasmine, rose, plum and suede over a base of musky, woods, patchauli, vanilla and amber. It's quite the cocktail. Went I first caught wind of this scent I instantly fell in love. Its soft, sweet but yet zingy; very reminiscent of Gucci Rush by Gucci which is another one of my all time favourite scents.

Get or Try 'Rogue' by Rihanna at your local Superdrug, Perfume Shop or at Selfridges.

NEXT NEW IN | BLOGGER EVENT


The Next 'New In' Event was loaded with all the fabulous pieces a girl could wish for to build a perfect Spring Wardrobe. Hand-picked by the Next buyers themselves, wardrobes ranged from a floral and pastel selection to electric summer brights and a gorgeous holiday range. I particularly liked the floral printed pair of shorts and the pale pink knife-pleat skirt was simply delightful and bang on trend for the season. Summer knits were in full force in a range of yummy pastel candy colours and I loved the soft and fluffy look of the sky blue loose knit jumper that can be worn with a lighter fabric for spring or summer...



With all that gorgeous fashion came along some amazing food and delicious cocktails and nobody quiet does it like Next do. In a separate room was a lovely Nail and Hair bar hosted by Blow Ltd. I of-course jumped on the first opportunity to get my nails done and the coolest thing about it is the Nail artists were painting nail designs that matched the prints from the collection from an item of your choice.


As the day went on, Afternoon Tea was served and some music came on to liven up the atmosphere and see us into the evening for a few more cocktails and a bit of a boogie before it was time to call it a day. 

Fabulous times with the girls from Next as always!

MAKE A STATEMENT!


I absolutely love accessories as I believe they can change any look and transform it into something more interesting and different.

Statement jewellery is here to stay and statement necklaces are stronger than ever before. with more and more new and unique creations being made; I've never been more in love with the idea of putting something simple on and jazzing it up with some gorgeous neck candy.

Best places for Statement jewellery on the high-street at the moment I find to be Zara, Topshop, Miss Selfridge, Forever 21 and of-course Accessorize and all at a reasonable price point. Check them out a score some great pieces for yourself this Spring!

ARE HEELS DEAD?


As much as the question begs; the answer is quite simple....No! Heels will never die! Have a read as I give you the low-down on why that is....

There was a time when I would never set foot to any event, meet-up or even go shopping without wearing a pair of heels. Like most girls, I love shoes (heels mostly) and I don't know whether its because of the fact that they instantly change the way one looks and stands making a woman's posture more feminine and legs longer and sexier or merely because I'm 5 ft tall and its a way of compensating for my height.

However, the invention of heels completely revolutionised the fashion industry and women's dress and has evolved drastically over the years with various styles, materials and heights being thrown into the mix. The footwear industry alone particularly 'Stiletto's' is worth billions with coveted labels such a Christian Louboutin, Jimmy Choo and Manolo Blanik on top of that pyramid and every girl wishing they owned a pair or blowing their wages on a single pair of red bottoms.
