Sex and the City 2

The amount of hype and hysteria surrounding the Sex and the City 2 film, which was released yesterday, is overwhelming. Not only is everyone organising girlie dates to watch the film with cocktails in hand whilst being pedicured, manicured and exfoliated at the same time (slight exaggeration), but the advertising has gone mad too; every billboard, magazine, newspaper and website I come across seems to feature the New York quartet.

Now, perhaps this is a contentious issue and I will receive hate mail for months to come I the only woman not to be excited in the slightest about Sex and the City 2? Now, don’t assume that I have a huge dislike of Sex and the City and everything it stands for, I don’t, it’s just that I’m not that interested in the ongoing saga of the will-they, won’t-they, love affairs of Carrie Bradshaw and the neurotic tendencies and shrill tones of Miranda. I also think that the Sex and the City content has been done to death and stringing it out to a second film is too much. However saying that, count me in on the pre-film cocktails, I’ll just slide away before the curtains open.

Orly - Pastel Perfection

I love nail varnishes and am one of those people who can never go out without having nail varnish on and can't bear to see chips or bad workmanship. Anyway, enough about my idiosyncrasies, I am having a love affair with pastels at the moment and this also includes nail colour. I’ve spent the past few weeks trying to find the perfect pastels for my fingers and toes and have struck gold. I’ve found the ‘Sweet Color Collection’ by Orly which has the perfect shades of pastel with delicious names like cotton candy, lollipop and lemonade. Not only are these colours perfectly on-trend, and eye-catching but also incredibly easy to apply and hard wearing. The ideal choice for the summer!

Hennes bikinis

Every London bus that seems to pass me has a bevy of bronzed beauties (including Daria Werbowy, Julia Stegner, Erin Wasson, Sasha Pivovarova and Lara Stone) in H&M’s bikinis, from its summer collection, on the side of it. I simply love these bikinis, not only are they bargainous, prices start from £3.99, but they are simple, available in a selection of cool colours and safari and ethnic patterns and also have lots of bandeau styles which I love. I always find difficult to find bandeau bikinis unless you’re on a beach in Rio. Bandeau tops are perfect for ease, style and most importantly limit tan marks – bonus. I’m rushing down to Oxford Street on my lunch today to pick up a selection before they sell out! To see the models speak of their favourite summer experience see their video courtesy of H&M.

Pastels are back, and they're here to stay! I've suddenly found a new found love for pastels this time round. Perhaps because it symbolises the start of summer, which cannot come soon enough, or that it adds a welcome relief to my black/grey/navy wardrobe, but whatever it is I like it! Top of my shopping list are these pastel denim shorts in salmon and mint from Topshop, a must-have for any festival this summer.

I love espadrilles. I think that they are the epitome of summer chic and are incredibly easy-to-wear and go with just about everything in my summer wardrobe. Now, what I’m confused about is that this inexpensive Spanish summer shoe, which can be found for a couple of Euros all across continental markets, is being sold for ridiculous prices in England by various fashion brands/shops. For instance these Jaeger espadrilles are £90. I could travel to a Spanish market in person and purchase a pair of espadrilles for less than this.
