Crisp White Crochet

I love wearing crisp white in the summer. I just have to stay as far away as possible from kids, animals or any coloured food and drink :D 

This gorge crochet two piece is so dainty, girly and fresh. 

Teamed with my favourite statement, fluffy clutch and classic stilettos.

Birds of paradise

Summer time my favourite ever fashion season is fast approaching :D. For me this means print, colour and crisp whites. 

I love this printed skater dress because the colours and so vivid and the print so interesting with a birds of paradise theme. Skater dresses are a great way of pinching in at the waist and skimming the stomach bloat. This shape is best suited to my frame. 

I have then coordinated the pastel pink with a cute pair of classic courts and my favourite ever satchel bag. 

Keeping things on trend Ive added a sleeveless waistcoat, plus you never know what way the British weather will turn.

Wearing a work of art

I was so excited with the news of this exclusive collection. Fashion for me has always been a work of art so the Oasis collaboration with the Victorian and Albert museum of art and design sounded like a dream. The collection is bursting with colour, interesting ceramic prints and gorgeous cuts. I love this 1950s inspired, skater shape with a modern sheer panel twist. 

Teamed with an equally vintage inspired hat and some classic pastel courts. 

A summers art vision.

How To Create My Holly-Beach Wave

I love experimenting and over the years I have had black, brown, ginger and blonde hair. Pixie cut, lob and full on mane with extensions. Now I have gone back to my roots, (quite literally growing it out) and natural length. 

So instead of experimenting with cutting or dying, I am trying new hair styles. 

This wave for me is in-between a Hollywood 1950s wave and a modern day beach wave. I like to call it my Holly-Beach wave and its great for that day to night look. Its really simple and can be done in less than 30 minutes. Here is my step by step guide. 

You will need:








Step 1

Use your brush to comb out any knots and separate hair. 


Step 2 
Using your hair clip separate your first section of hair. I would recommend sectioning your hair into four rows overall. 


Step 3 
Part your first row into two/three sections depending on the thickness of your hair. Before tonging rub your fingers through the section to gather the hair together. 


Step 3 
Using your wand facing downwards wrap the hair around the top of the wand in a anticlockwise motion. Hold the hair for 10 seconds on the highest heat before realising. Take care with fingers when using the appliance. When wrapping the hair do so at the thickest end of the wand, to create that loose wave look.


Your first row should look like this.


Step 4 
Repeat this step with the second and third row parting your hair into around four sections each time, depending on the thickness of your hair. The bigger the sections the loser the wave.


Step 6 
When you reach the top of the head, the section of hair that frames the face. Gently rock the wand back and forth at the root to iron out any fly aways and smooth the hair then follow suit curling with the wand.



Your hair should look something like this. 




Step 7 
Comb out the hair to separate the sections, which will make the hair frizz. Then using the ultimate oil dispense one pump onto the palms of your hand, rub together and gently comb with fingers through the curls to tame.


Step 8
Spray the hair all over so the style holds.


Voila, there you have it my Holly-Beach wave.
