GOLDEN GLAM - NEW YEARS EVE PARTY DRESS INSPO

It's nearly New Years Eve - and it has to be my favourite night of the year. The one night where you can dress as glitz and as glam as you wish, and reflect on all the positive moments from your year. 2016 has been one of the best years yet; and I'll definitely be celebrating that when the countdown comes along.

'TIS THE SEASON TO WEAR CHRISTMAS JUMPERS

As each year passes I grow more and more fond of Christmas jumpers. This year I have picked up a sparkly reindeer number and also one which says, 'Sleigh My Name, Sleigh My Name' - LOL. I thought it would be fun to shoot my Christmas Jumper look, in a beautiful little street in Sloane Square, to round off my festive season.

MY SECRET TO PERFECT LEGS - THE SMOOTHSKIN BARE

During the party season my legs are constantly out - I live in skirts and dresses around this time of year. I've always been very religious with my hair removal, I shave near enough every day so my legs are constantly smooth. But now my life is getting a whole lot easier since I've just been introduced to the SmoothSkin Bare IPL treatment. This little magic device is SO incredibly fast and easy to use, and gets to work on reducing hair up to 92% in four weeks! Honestly, it's the dream. Here's all the deets and don't forget to check out my Leg Routine video below too...

INVESTING IN LUXURY - A CLASSIC LOOK THAT WILL NEVER DATE

Spending excessive amounts on evening dresses or winter knits isn't my thing. I dress from the highstreet for my every day look - I would prefer to buy three wearable knitted jumpers from the highstreet rather than a luxury cashmere one. It's just the way I have always been. When it comes to luxury shopping, I love to invest in a classic pair of heels or a beautiful handbag.

TROPICAL PRINT VIBES / MY TROPICAL SUMMER LOOK


Tropical prints - YES. Wearing a print like this instantly picks you up and puts you in a good mood.

I've gone for a hint of tropical, but you can go for full-on exotic glam with a jumpsuit or two-peice.

A STAY AT THE ME HOTEL


The ME Hotel is one of my favourite London Hotels. I've ate at both of their restaurants before - Cucina Asellina and STK - which I love, I'm a huge fan of their Radio Rooftop bar and their lounge bar on the ground floor is so perfect if I need to work on my laptop in-between meetings. BUT, I have never had the chance to stay there until Garnier invited me to their Ultimate Blends event.

THE POWER OF WEARING WHITE

Some people may call the colour white a bit 'bland', 'boring', 'plain'. But when I see a girl wearing white I think POWER. The elegancy, purity and power of white is so understated. It's my go-to shade (especially in summer!); and the great thing about it, is that absolutely anyone and everyone can rock it.

NEVER QUESTION YOUR INSTINCT

There's been moments in my life where I know deep down the reality of what is going to happen; but I've chosen not to believe it. You have that 'gut' feeling, but it's not what you wanted or expected to happen. What I've learnt? To always, always trust my instinct - because it's never been wrong. So maybe the next time you get that feeling too; go with it and prepare yourself for what you feel might happen. In more cases than one, you'll be right and at least you'll be prepared.

Since leaving the magazine industry to concentrate on my YouTube channel, and now start up my website; I've spent a lot of time getting to know bloggers who started their working career doing just this.

NOONE IS YOU, AND THAT IS YOUR POWER

Gaining inspiration from others is so important. It helps you to create something in your own way, with your own twist. I am not trying to copy another blogger with this website, this is simply an outlet for me to tell you what I've been up to, what I'm loving right now and hopefully give you a little bit of inspiration. And the best part about that? Noone's website will be like mine! Keep in mind, no matter what path you're taking in life, that noone is you and that is your power.
