MY MID-WEEK MOMENT #ROCKS&CO


This week's MID-WEEK MOMENT is devoted to the DEBUT of ROCKS & CO.'s  collaboration with the effortlessly cool label, PPQ at #LFW. When it comes to jewellery, I'm a bit of a magpie – and the bigger THE BETTER. Precious stone retailer, Rocks & Co therefore, really (ahem) ROCK my boat (sorry). Showcasing SERIOUSLY statement pieces in bold jewel tones at PPQ's 'Forgetful Dynasty' #SS16 runway collection, it was the perfect pairing; allowing the slick contemporary womenswear to really POP against the treasure trove of gemstone art.

Our S/S16 collection encompasses the classic, elegant style of the 1950s against the edgier, regal aesthetics of the 1990s. Rocks & Co.’s statement gemstone pieces added to the drama of our bold looks and finished the designs perfectly.”

10 THINGS I LOVE ABOUT ASOS


NO.1
The utterly INSANE amount of choice and variety. I just know that when I step forth onto that DREAMY digital shopping shelf (probably whilst wearing mismatched pyjama's, ridiculously large glasses and drinking from a VAT of wine) I will fall in LOVE with something. Or (in the majority of cases) a LOT of things. NOTE: My ASOS order history is one of my most closest guarded secrets.

NO.2
ASOS Premier Delivery. Now if you haven't got this, I'm afraid we can't be friends. It's £9.95 for the YEAR. That means FREE NEXT DAY DELIVERY PEOPLE. So, when you've DESTROYED your Beyonce-like ball-gown in the washing machine and are PANICKING by groaning, flinging clothes haphazardly up the walls and unproductively trying to sew your own. JUST STOP, and calmly log on to ASOS. It'll be here tomorrow. Good grief.  


NO.3
#AsSeenOnMe – because we all #LOVE a hashtag and nosily eyeing up what others having bought and chosen. What? I'm a fashion blogger – I can't help myself. It's like some weird scanner in my head: I look at someone and it's like: 'new season Prada, H&M shirt, Topshop jeans, Sophia Webster classiiiccccs...aw!'...*bend down to pet shoes like dog*

SHOP: Nude shoes (HERE) / Pink shoes (HERE


NO.4
Their ability to deliver on the HAWTEST, on-point styles of the season...and which, most importantly, come in ON BUDGET. Yes, I can freely admit there has been times when, seduced by the sight of a new Charlotte Olympia clutch or Michael Kors tote, I have thought: 'Who needs food or petrol? I'll just eat dry cereal and scoot to work!' But ASOS, luckily, brings you back to your senses with a new season drop that instantly channels what's out there on the catwalk, at an affordable price *HUSBAND groans sigh of relief*

NO.5
SALE/MONEY OFF! There's always a GEM of a bargain to be had! Often enough, a cute little email is waiting expectantly in my inbox declaring that I'll get 25% off faux fur this #AW15! Or 15% off new shoe drops! Eek! *cue spilling of coffee/green tea/vino/cereal into lap*  
NO.6
ASOS MARKETPLACE. It's about discovering new and emerging brands that you'll love. Want something original that means you won't have to run ten blocks to avoid the girl you just spotted wearing the exact same sweater dress? Me too! Hop on to ASOS Marketplace and discover brands like House of Sunny, Handpicked and many more! Living the dream people, we're just LIVING THE DREAM. 

SHOP: Ciaté Make-up (HERE) / Black shoe-boots (HERE) / Pink glittery faux-fur shoes (HERE


NO.7
Because it's an INSPIRATIONAL HUB OF DREAMS. Cue it's trend-looks and 'Going out-out' etc pages! If there ever was a time to bring out the #INSPO hashtag it would be NOW. 


NO.8
THE WEBSITE. Because it's just a dream to use. I don't get frustrated by it and I've never felt the need to throw my laptop out of the window! And the styled images are sublime, funky and on-point, whatever the season, whatever the trends, WHATEVER. 



NO.9
It makes finding my husband's gifts a whole lot easier. Why are men so difficult to buy for? And then when I do have a good idea – I let it slip! *FAIL* ASOS has helped me out a number of times and calmed my inner present-buying nerves. 

SHOP: Ciaté Make-up (HERE) / 'Too glam to give a damn' phone case (HERE) / Faux fur clutch (HERE) / Red faux fur clutch below (HERE)

NO.10
Because COOLNESS just reverberates from every angle of the brand. CLICK HERE to SHOP. It's a NO-BRAINER PEOPLE.

My LOVE AFFAIR with Estée Lauder


So, I don't know if you know, but I'm a little bit in LOVE with Estée Lauder. The love affair started when I tried the make-up brand's DOUBLE WEAR foundation (find it HERE), and from then on, the little beauty hasn't left my side (or my face). I wore the lighter version for my wedding day, paired with the brand's delectable (almost edible) DayWear moisturiser (HERE). It smells like cucumber, and is the perfect little number for awakening even the most stubborn of sleepyheads - myself included. One of the brand's signature scents, Modern Muse, has also taken my dressing table and fragrance collection by STORM. There's something extremely both LUXE and sophisticated about it and it's proved itself to be the ideal, go-to fragrance for anything from that greatly-anticipated board meeting, to post-work cocktails. It's floral, yet soft and alluring, and debuts beautiful 'Sleek Woods Accords' - the perfect mix for 2015's sophisticated, confident woman...

Stay tuned for more Estée Lauder LOVE coming to the blog...

THE BALMAIN ARMY IS COMING #H&M


Say hello to the SERIOUSLY LUXE print campaign from H&M's latest collab with Balmain (did I mention that I CAN'T WAIT FOR THIS?!). Not only is this a COLLABORATION I will cry over if I miss it, but the brands have got models and fashion icons of the moment; Gigi Hadid, Kendall Jenner and Jourdan Dunn as the faces of the campaign. Shot by Photographer Mario Sorrenti, the three models appear alongside male models, Hao Yun Xiang and Dudley O'Shaughnessy in a futuristic, out-of-this-world, subway scene where each model leads their own crew (reflecting the different (and much-anticipated) themes of the Balmain x H&M collection). Including womenswear, menswear and accessories, it is with BAITED BREATH that will await it's drop in selected stores and online WORLDWIDE from the 5th November...*argh!*

“When you love the Balmain world, you love the models that are part of it too. Kendall, Gigi and Jourdan are my friends, and they are the perfect choice to star in the Balmain x H&M campaign.” Olivier Rousteing, Creative Director of Balmain
