Topshop Make-Up Celebrates Its First Birthday

Topshop make-up has recently celebrated its first birthday (just in case it passed you by). So a big congratulations is in order! You know what they say, time flies when you're having fun.

The make-up collection has become one of my go-to brands on the high street since it launched.

The biggest sellers are lips and nails which is to be expected as both offer a fantastic range of striking colours which have great lasting power. My favourites are Gone Fishing and Dust Storm nail varnish, and Nevada and Oh La La lipsticks.

The collection has been really well executed from the start; from the minimalist packaging to the affordable prices, and adventurous colour palettes to the breadth of every-day products.

Current Hair Loves

Here are some of my favourite hair styles at the moment
from the model perfect top knot to the fishtail as seen at Erdem A/W 11.
I'm currently thinking of changing my hair style/colour for the summer.
I will keep you posted on what I decide...

Whistling Cow: A Whistles and Cowshed Collaboration

Essie nail varnish range at Cowshed
Last week I attended 'Whistling Cow' launch,
celebrating the collaboration between Whistles and Cowshed.
'Whistling Cow' is a combination of gorgeous beauty products from,
one of my favourite organic beauty brands Cowshed,
and Whistles' first ever swimwear range.
The brands are a great match, and I love the Whistles 'love' print
(which looks like a series of cow hooves, non?)
that is featured on the beauty range and swimsuit!

I can't believe it has taken Whistles this long to launch a swimwear range.
The collection is a fantastic array of print bikinis and a retro 'love' print swimsuit.
I've recently become a convert to Whistles and have been really impressed with their last few collections, so I'm sure this will be a big success.
Just make sure to get stocked up for the summer!

Kirsten Dunst by Mario Testino, V Magazine

This is a fantastic photo of Kirsten Dunst taken by Mario Testino for V Magazine.
I have never been drawn to Kirsten Dunst like most of the fashion crowd,
however I think that she looks amazing here
laying everything bare in this raw shot.

Lady Gaga, The Edge of Glory

Lady Gaga's 'The Edge of Glory' is top of the
T-Shirt and Tails weekly loves list!
'The Edge of Love' has topped 'Judas' in airtime (on my iPod)
and I can't stop playing it over and over again.

Things Organized Neatly

I am a fan of organisation, hoarding and artefacts, so naturally the Things Organized Neatly Tumblr would appeal to me.

I’ve just discovered this blog and I think that visually these images are amazing!

I love how the mundane is transformed into art by simple organisation.

Long live organisation!

Terry Richardson and Friends

Terry Richardson, the photographer, has a fantastic blog which is one of my favourite sites at the moment.

He photographs his sitters and the people he meets in a fun and energetic way, with either an enthusiastic thumbs up or pretending to be the person he is featured with and them vice versa.

My personal favourites are Kate Moss, Lily Donaldson and Freja Beha Erichsen shots.

Colombia Road Flower Market

Whilst walking down Colombia Road Flower Market last Sunday morning I spotted this foxy character hanging out of a first floor window.
The fox was sitting on the windowsill doing a spot of sewing - very surreal!

Polka Dot Nails from Nailease

Here is my polka dot Nailease from the Talk Store PR press day.
Nailease is a nail art transfer that is easy-to-apply and you don't have to worry about drying nails and smudges - perfect!

Havaianas Wellie Launch

Havaianas timed its launch of the wellie perfectly to coincide with the start of the festival season! I had the pleasure of attending its festival themed launch event at Selfridges.

I've always been a big fan of Havaianas', they have got me through my student days and several travelling trips. However, outside of the beach I tend not to wear my flip flops anymore, but I'm much more inclined to buy a pair of the brightly coloured wellies.

The night featured all of my summer favourites from hay bales and grass flooring to fruit cocktails and live music (courtesy of Jamie Woon and DJ Daisy Lowe). Just as we were about to leave on came the Brazilian samba dancers, which inspired us to dance the night away. I spent the next day day-dreaming about being back in Brazil...

There is Only One Kate Moss in London

I couldn't agree more! Kate Moss featured in this Agent Provocator bridal collection a couple of years ago.
