Topshop X BLOW

Topshop X BLOW

LFW Day 1: Marsha Marsha Marsha.

So London Fashion Week is over, and I for one miss it already. Yes, there were blisters, last-minute city mapper panic attacks, shivers and the occasional wind messing up the new bangs but, I loved every single minute of it. The themes, the fringing, the colourways, the cuts, the people...
The Truth about Orange Hair.

The Truth about Orange Hair.

In my case, Orange is the new Blonde. Since first starting on Instagram – approximately 153 weeks ago – I have been sporting statement bright ginger locks. Little did I know, with such locks came great responsibility, with a plathora of FAQ’s headed my way related to my Barnet. From which dye...

Girls that wear Glasses – Alain Mikli Life Lessons.

Metal frames. These two words have been completely exempt from my glasses vocabulary for the past 10 years, but somehow have re-entered with a flash of a designer. I only recently came across the work of Alain Mikli but when I found out  his work was regularly seen on the...

Texture Dreamin’ with Aymee Chartlon

It’s been a fair wee while since I’ve showcased some shit hot Scottish design on here. And although we’re in Tropical Storm season here in Scotland, everyone knows it won’t be long till the chill returns and we need to pull out dem jumpers again.

Caledonian Chic at Guerlain Spa, Edinburgh

If you’re one of those people who considers spa treatments a luxury and not a regular occurrence, you’re not alone — a gal’s got to pay dem bills after all. Even so, there’s no denying the benefits of a good rubdown or deep pore cleanse. So, if there was ever a time to ‘treat yo...

Doing double denim (again)

Doing double denim (again)

Some people say less is more but when it comes to denim, I think those people didn’t get the memo. As far as I’m concerned,  denim is a neutral, so matching like with like is kind of a no-brainer. You really can’t go wrong with it — unless the year is 2001 and you’re Britney Spears with...
