In recent years the links between art and fashion have become more and more apparent. I have always felt that fashion is art - it is how we express ourselves everyday but i love that designers are really embracing this and creating pieces that really are wearable art. The designer that has really caught my eye recently is Sophia Webster.... i had never heard of her before but every since i saw her collaboration with American super brand J Crew, i have seen her designs everywhere and my Instagram account went crazy with shots from her latest press day and i was so impressed with the variety of pieces and the playful nature of the styles, especially the use of slogan's (not something usually used on footwear) on such feminine shoes. There are a couple of styles i would have loved to have worn at my wedding, so much so i am considering a pair to go with my maid of honour dress for my little sisters wedding - watch this space....


1. Oprah - "Sweet Talk" Slogan heels £395. 2. Jerry - the perfect flat partner to Oprah £290.
3. Jemima - Striped and jewelled, a great combination £445. 4. Peron - who doesn't love a pair of shoes covered in hearts? £295. 5. Rosa - the fashionista's, grown up jelly shoe £210.
6. Chiara - my favourite, statement butterflies, enough said! £410

The mix of styles within the SS14 collection are amazing - from the simple slogan ballet flat to the ornate butterfly heels. With some glamourous everyday choices and some much more intricate and flamboyant pieces, there really is something for every occasion and these beautiful shoes really are like wearing a piece of art. The above is just a small selection of the range, the styles that grabbed my attention and that i would love to wear.

Alongside the gorgeous current collection, Sophia has collaborated with J Crew, with some beautiful styles, especially loving the polka dot Mary-Jane (Primark have done a version that has been a great seller), all three below, a modern take on a classic shoe, sadly though most of the styles are now sold out!


1. Penelope - a Mary-Jane with a modern twist £460. 2. Alicia - a simple bar shoe with a pretty update £480. 
3. Anneka - the classic court as you have never seen it before £395

Whilst browsing the sophiawebster.co.uk website, i also discovered the new Mini range, it is nice to see a designer who is thinking about not only the fashionista but also her mini me. I am totally in love, with this adorable selection - i really want the little leopard print sandals called Gaga (wish they came in my size!) - image taken from the brands Instagram.


Also worth mentioning the great slogan clutch bags that are also available on sophiawebster.co.uk - with a variety of cheesy one liners, a great quirky addition to a fashionista's bag collection, although a little on the pricey side at £340.

Which of the amazing shoe collection is your favourite?

The summer sun can only mean one thing - time to paint those toenails and don your sandals.... and with such beauties available on the high-street there is no excuse not to find your perfect sunshine partner. Some people love plain styles that will go with everything, others prefer a touch so sparkle or pattern but with so many great options around you are sure to find the pair for you. Personally I like the option of having both - classic and simple, a no brainer option,easy to add to any outfit but I also like something a little more fun especially when jewels and on trend colours are involved.

These are my favourites from the highstreet, with a variety of prices for every pocket and budget - which would you choose?


1. Dahlia - Kurt Geiger £180 - a beautifully simple style but in a great bold colour.
2. Malibu sparkle - Accessorize £37 - simple nude base with pastel jewels.
3. Kayla - Carvela £55 - every girl loves a little bit of sparkle and the summer is no exception.
4. Leopard - Next £28 - embrace your inner animal, with this calfhair pair.
5. Camden - J Crew @ Net-a-Porter £200 - have seen these gorgeous sandals everywhere, they seem to be the fashionista's favourite choice, simple with a touch of J Crew sparkle.
6. Studio Punch - Clarks £49.99 - something beautiful from an unexpected source, Clarks have really stepped it up in the style stakes recently and this pair is a great example.

So my feet are all ready for summer - are yours?

Like most people these days, technology is a big part of my life - i am one of those people who would be miserable without my phone and access to the world. So apart from the obvious everyday apps such as Instagram, Twitter & Pinterest, I wanted to share the other app that has become a must for me:

STYLEBOOK


Always intrigued by organisational tools, I was so pleased when apps designed to keep track of your wardrobe first appeared and very excited when I discovered Stylebook, after reading an online review. The only sadness at the time was my lack of Apple technology compatible with the app, as a Samsung girl this just wasn't available to me. I have tried many of the free options from the Google play store and have been disappointed, with the limitations of the app and the amateur feeling of the graphics. So when my husband recently decided to give in and buy an iPad I was on board especially because I knew I could finally catalogue my vast wardrobe and as soon as it was out of the box, Stylebook was loaded and I spent an entire weekend adding all my pieces (amazing how much time it takes when you are photographing every item). Unlike many apps that have a limit to the number of items you can load, Stylebook appears not too which makes the price of the app totally worth while, especially as i am forever adding items.

Once you have created your closet and added in all your items, you can then take advantage of the additional features such as the calendar, packing lists and style stats (helps you to see the items you wear most/least etc) to name a few. This app has revolutionised my dressing experience, especially as i am not a morning person and i can plan a week of outfits whilst sat watching the TV and without having them all piled up on the bed for the cat to fall asleep on, it also helps you to incorporate items you forgot you had, or come up with new combinations. Watch out for outfit posts/updates on social media....

App features:


I am looking forward to using the packing list feature, as when i travel i always take too much and still end up struggling with what to wear, but with this feature i can plan outfits including accessories before hand and pack accordingly.

Check out the video below for a full tour of this amazing little app:

In my never ending quest for finding the perfect furnishings for my new house, i have developed a love for the H&M home range, something i was aware of before but had never really looked, until one boring afternoon when I found several items that caught my eye. The frustrating thing is that this range is only available in the Oxford Street store (selected items) or online and i have had bad experiences with ordering online, so this may well just be something that i lust over but never buy! 

A fairly small range but a good starting point, the brand covers most soft essential items - from cushions and throws to bedding and storage plus a small kitchenware offering but its main focus is textiles. A good range of price points too with many items coming in at under £20. The current range is a great mix of grey's and neutrals with pops of colour, great for me as these are the colours I need! These are my favourite pieces, and I may have to give in and order online, unless I find better elsewhere. 


Cushions: Boucle £7.99, Boucle metallic £12.99, Textured Moss Knit £14.99, 
Linen stripe £12.99, Twill block stripe £6.99
Duvet sets: Butterflies £29.99, Vintage £34.99, Polka dot £29.99
Jacquard weave blanket £24.99

Have you heard of / seen the home range? Would love to hear from you if you bought anything.

The Met Gala is one of the most important events in the fashion calendar and following last year's world of punk theme, this year saw a return to a more glamorous dress code. Like so many events, the evening had winners and losers in the style stakes, with most pulling out all the stops to steal the night but a few sparkling horrors have made the worst dressed lists today. With such a wide array of designer gowns gracing the red carpet, alongside a few unexpected appearances like Kendall Jenner in a customsied Topshop dress and a great mix of shapes, from elegant slinky numbers to full on princess ballgowns with the jewels to match there really was a look for all tastes. The Met Gala ball is the ultimate event for fashion and this year's attendants did not fail to bring the glitz and glamour.

These are my favourites dresses from the evening, in particular Emmy Rossum - with such a bright colour and bold floral print she looked amazing and was a nice change from the pallete of monochrome that seemed to rule the event. 


Emmy Rossum - Caroline Herrera gown. 
Hayden Panettiere in Dennis Basso. 
Leighton Meester - dress by Emilio Pucci with Jimmy Choo heels. 
Karoline Kurkova - Marchesa ballgown with Harry Winston diamonds.  
Reese Witherspoon - Stella McCartney gown. 
Kate Mara - Valentino SS14 couture gown.

- ♥ -


Sarah Jessica Parker - custom-made Oscar de la Renta gown. 
Felicity Jones - bespoke gown Olivier Theyskens. 
Hailee Steinfeld - gown by Prabal Gurung with Van Cleef & Arpels jewels. 
Kirsten Wiig - Balenciaga by Alexander Wang dress and trousers. 
Blake Lively - custom-made Gucci Premiere gown. 
Agron - bespoke Miu Miu dress.


Who gets your vote for best dressed? And which group do you prefer - the ladies in monochrome or those who chose colour & print?

Finding the perfect nail polish is for me is just as important as finding the perfect pair of jeans, it can be time consuming but well worth it in the end. Up until last year I was a Barry M addict, with no real favourite shades but at less then £4 a bottle i was always trying something new, including some collours I will never repeat! I remember seeing the Essie brand in magazines and mentioned in my favourite coffee table book, by Emily Schuman from the amazing blog cupcakesandcasmere.com and to my surprise and happiness I discovered the brand finally came to the UK last year and is now stocked in both Boots and Superdrug stores. How I survived before Essie I will never know, even though it is more expensive than a lot of polish brands the extra pennies are well worth it - such glossy, rich colours and I could never make a set of nails last more than 3 days without chips developing, but with Essie I get a perfect set for more than a week. My favourite product is actually the rapid dry top coat "good to go", it drys almost instantly and means I can paint my nails just before bed and wake up without the horrible duvet dents in my manicure, that I get from every other brand.

With a colour for every occasion and outfit, it is not surprise that the UK is loving Essie.
I really enjoyed the quirky story/poem in the about section on the Essie website, a great way to introduce the brand and its' history to new customers - extract taken from Essie.com

"once upon a time… a mademoiselle just out of ballet slippers, had an a-list idea. why should a damsel in a dress settle for nails au natural? from this stroke of brilliance, Essie Weingarten created smokin’ hot colors that were cute as a button and haute as hello. with blanc and really red in her carry on, she headed to Vegas, where she mesmerized the limo-scene with her stylenomics.
soon, every scarlett o’hara was jamaica me crazy for essie colors, from blushing bride and prima ballerina to bahama mama and big spender. even the devil’s advocate was sew psyched. it seemed there were no boundaries to mini how high this leading lady could fly.
in lady like fashion, essie sold good as gold, from the coat azure to fifth avenue – all while keeping merino cool. the secret story to success? sure shot chic color with a master plan that’s a cut above the rest, leaving the glamour purse set proclaiming, “it’s genius!" brazilliant essie color has become the shine of the times, proving that beauty is not just a pretty face."
-♥-
With so many gorgeous shades to choose from picking my favourites was hard work but I have narrowed it down to my top 6 colours:


1. Lilacism - a satiny smooth lilac
2. Tart Deco - a dreamy coral with an artistic burst of colour (currently on my toes)
3. In the Cab-ana - self assured aqua azure *a new shade for me
4. Mint candy apple - a crime de menthe mint
5. Under the twilight - provocative smokey plum
6. Lovie Dovie - a perfect true flamingo pink (currently wearing)

"A good snapshot keeps a moment from running away." Eudora Welty

Of all the social media out there, Instagram is truly my favourite and I am obsessed! I love nothing more than posting beautiful images and seeing those posted by others, it has become my morning ritual to scroll through and see what moments have happened whilst I have been asleep, and as most of the bloggers I follow are in the US there are usual quite a few to catch up on. 

So here is my snapshot of my April moments....


* A new summer season deserves a new pair of sunnies - not my usual style but so fun, with pastel animal print - newlook.com. * Crazy about lips, love this Lulu Guiness inspired print from Matalan is just gorgeous and looks great on this simple silky cami top. * The tester cake for my birthday, one of the perks of being married to a chef - yummy treats. * My favourite way to wear a scarf, with a vintage pin. * Lands' End getting trendy with a mention in Look Magazine for the beautiful floral mac, part of the current SS14 collection, take a look - Floral Raincoat* New bedding I couldn't resist, something cute about all the glasses especially when Willow spends ages trying to move them! Primark really do have some good home stuff and great for £12.99. * My Highstreet Haul - bargain shopping with some fabulous pieces and prints. * The latest view of my house - it nearly has a roof! This waiting game is killing me as I am not the most patient of people and I am so ready to get in it and start making it a home. * Part of one of my favourite quotes used on a simple grey t from Primark, Yves Saint Laurent was right "Fashions fade, style is eternal"


* The sun has arrived and so have my legs!! My three favourite outfits from this month: 1. H&M midi skirt styled with a striped sleeveless blouse and fringed sandals. 2. Primark printed midi skirt and slogan t with my faithful flat tan sandals. 3. My New love - H&M striped pencil skirt teamed with a open shoulder t and ethnic inspired jewellery. * My April Pinterest favourites, such a great mix of images this month with a fabulous pastel palette, really love the beautiful intricate necklace and floral embellished coat. * My new home decorating inspiration, absolutly in love with this colour mix - check out the full post Grey&Yellow. * The new Puuuuuuurfect piece in my wardrobe, a great new take on a stripe t with an almost French twist. Topshop really do have some amazing quirky basic pieces at the moment. 
* Willow felt like a furry fashionista one evening and was having trouble deciding which scarf to wear! I believe she decided on the leopard print - such a little poser. * New spring shoes, perfect shade of mint and a very cute sling back style, also available in other colours on newlook.com. * My favourite way to relax when I get home from work, with a good book from my vast array of fashion & Style titles.


 * BIRTHDAY!!! So where to start..... first off is the stunning Oliver Bonas necklace I received from the ladies at work, so me and I love. Next up is the sparkle fest that was my desk, I am still finding stars and the occasional happy birthday dotted around. * An early celebratory Chinese buffet meal with my amazing best friend - note to self don't wear a tight fitting skirt when you visit and all you can eat restaurant! * The beautifully view from round my mum and dad's house, perfect setting for walking off all the cake. * The final cake from hubby, yummy chocolate with buttercream topping. * My birthday outfit, had I realised the country outing would happen I would have been a little more appropriately dressed but oh well. * A saying that I have always found to be true and will always live my life by. * Parisian kitty chic, teamed my new t with a pencil skirt and pearls - felt very grown up in the office, but with a me twist. * Finally a late birthday treat to myself - spent some of my birthday pennies on this amazing rainbow statement necklace from EBay, that I cannot wait to wear!

So that was April - May here we come!

My April

Next up is the sparkle fest that was my desk, I am still finding stars and the occasional happy birthday dotted around. * An early celebratory Chinese buffet meal with my amazing best friend - note to self don't wear a tight fitting skirt when you visit and all you can eat restaurant! * The beautifully view from round my mum and dad's house, perfect setting for walking off all the cake. * The final cake from hubby, yummy chocolate with buttercream topping. * My birthday outfit, had I realised the country outing would happen I would have been a little more appropriately dressed but oh well. * A saying that I have always found to be true and will always live my life by. * Parisian kitty chic, teamed my new t with a pencil skirt and pearls - felt very grown up in the office, but with a me twist. * Finally a late birthday treat to myself - spent some of my birthday pennies on this amazing rainbow statement necklace from EBay, that I cannot wait to wear!

So that was April - May here we come!
