And In Milano We Wear Maxi Dresses

After a very pleasant plane ride (Emirates is the best hands down) I arrived in the fashion capital of Milano and my first thought….. Holy Hell is it hot!!!

The history, the culture the punks, the hipsters, the old women that are so classy, but first my friends… An outfit post!

When in doubt wear a maxi dress and causal tennis shoes (I am obsessed with Bensimon’s – Level shoes district peeps) with far too much gold ghetto jewellery and a pastel cross bag! *Info on where to buy these high street bargains below)

The New A/W15 Adidas Stella Sport Collection

Let’s be honest I don’t work out or go to the gym, my version of cardio is getting up from the couch to the fridge to see if anything new has arrived since the last 2 minutes I checked the fridge.

But the new Adidas Stella Sport collection almost (key word almost) makes me want to parade in the gym while I spend 5 minutes on the elliptical machine.

The use of fun jungle patterns, bright neons and of course the ever sexy Stella/Adidas logo (without having to actually cough out the funds needed to buy Stella) makes this collection perfect for the young and the young at heart! Who knows I might even give yoga another chance!

Get Your Feet Summer Ready…

Solemate Dual Sided Foot Smoother2

I hate feet. Let me just make that statement very clear, if I could cut my feet off and walk on stumps I would. So any new thing to make my tootsies look slightly more attractive I am in there like swimwear!

Well folks I think our summer feet prayers have been answered! Introducing; Tweezerman The Soul Mates Duel Sided Foot File.

This baby features two specialised tools for expert pedicure maintenance: a professional quality, safe-to-the-touch stainless steel micro-file and an equally high quality finishing file. The stainless steel micro-file quickly, easily and very gently removes calluses and rough dead skin, while the finishing file buffs the skin to soft, touchable smoothness.

And it’s pink!!! Hello TAKE MY MONEY!!!!

Marimekko Secret Summer Dinner

I attended an intimate Scandinavia-inspired dinner hosted by the Finnish fashion brand Marimekko  in collaboration with The Mine art gallery. It was full of inspiring ladies, from hand selected designers, socialites, instagrammers, stylists… And me and my light up shoes. It was like a Pintrest board come to life, thanks to swings for seats, the iconic prints by Marimekko, the ivy and of course the hanging chandeliers.

All the food was courtesy of the newly opened Marimekko cafe located in box park. Fashion and food… What more could a person ask for?

Where Did You Get That Bag?

When I go to events or FAS-UN shows I always get asked, “Where did you get that bag?” Or “Where did you get that hat?” Usually it is the same answer, a little high street shop called Aldo. Every month there is something new that takes my eye, where one would think it was from a more expensive shop *Cough S*uce* when in fact it cost 250 AED. Here are some of my top picks of “Must Have Bags” to instagram / make other well jell of you this summer from Aldo (and they won’t break the bank)

Aldo Guide To ParisBonjour… Even if you aren’t traveling to the city of love this summer, you can still take a little bit of Paris with you (even if it is just to Mall Of The Emirates)

FERENTINO_86_220AEDRG

Always a fan favourite and it will get people that have never met you telling you “This bag is amez!” Who wouldn’t want a soda bag?? GORRETO_55_RG80AED

Nothing cuter then a coin purse.. That is unless it is in the shape of an ice-cream with sprinkles on it!!! Perfect to take to a festival (where all you need is change and a phone)GORRETO_65_RG80AED

 

Mango flavour coin purse anyone?

 

Photoshop In Real Life

Laird+Partners; Shoot Dates: 5/24/12 & 5/30/12

If you are like me, you read glossy fashion magazines and see those skinny, perfect bitches models who are photoshopped within an inch of their life and think “Why Can’t I look half as good as that?” Well until someone invents real time photoshop (until then we will have to make do with Instagram filters) my one go to product which I use when filming or on shoots is… Sally Hansen Air Brush Legs…

It’s like magical foundation for your legs, it covers every unsightly scars, pasty legs, freckles and makes them look almost perfect! It comes in an aerosol can, and you will need your girlfriends help to spray the back of your legs (don’t be that girl that forgets about the back of her legs). Once you spray it on slightly blend with your hands and you are good to go! Now available at Wojooh AED 62 (one can’t put a price on perfection).

*Secret Tip – To stop it from running down your legs due to heat, seal your legs in hair spray before heading out – It’s an old 1950’s Hollywood trick, it locks the product in*

Bloggers Do It Better

You don’t need to spend $1,000 to make a statement thanks to high street stores like H&M and Springfield! I’m loving the rad statement jumpers – Which you can add your boyfriends business shirt underneath so you are never seen in public wearing the same thing as another person (the perils of high street cheap jumpers)
