Playful Prada inspired banana Nail Art

The Prada fashion house is known for its rather reserved styling, so their spring summer banana designs are a breath of fresh fruit. London Nail salon WAH nails has used the print as inspiration for a matching manicure- banana-licious!

Royal Wedding Prince and Princess scents from the Perfume Shop

The Royal Wedding bandwagon rolls on, but this time it stop somewhere I vaguely like. You can get your own mini Princess or Prince scent to spray on, and they’re placed in adorable bottles, think Gwen Setfani’s Harajuku range of scents. Kate is resplendent in her wedding naughties and William has a mini military uniform.

Princess (Kate) smells of green leaves and white flowers, whilst Prince (Wills)  is cedar, and spicy nutmeg.

These are available online from now till stocks run out and are £20 for the 28ml each pair, or £10 each at the Perfume Shop.

DD+ Bikini Delights

I happen to be rather well endowed up top, and despite what Playboy would have you believe find it rather hard to find swimwear that looks flattering- and young and fun. Thankfully in the last few years brands have cottoned on to this, and here is my slection of bikini options for women who are more than a D cup handful.

La Senza’s 50s style Polka Dot bikini:

Looks lovely in the larger cup sizes and the colour is so fresh and fun. £22 for the set (separate top and bottoms) from La Senza


Leopard print Bikini Top from ASOS

Va Va voom. That’s pretty much it! £18 from ASOS

ASOS animal print halter top

This is ultra cute, and I love animal prints! This is from the ASOS D+ range. £16 from ASOS.

Pour Moi Azure Bikini

Can you believe this is a D+ bra (all the way to F!). No, me neither- haven’t things changed. £24 from ASOS.

Freya Riveria Tankini Set

Tankinis can be a great option if you’re tummy conscious and this style is so cute! £43 from Figleaves.

Ruffle red bikini La Senza

This is a very cute set, and I like how it makes you look so dramatic and Spanish (or that might be the model!). £32 for whole set

Loving Christina Aguilera’s hair extensions

So many hair extensions look tacky and fake and I have to give Christina Aguilera the thumbs up for her hair look. Sure, the length may be a little phony (OK, a lot) but the hair looks in nice condition, is well cut so it doesn’t fall in an odd ‘one layer’ divide, and her real hair is expertly blended into the mermaid blonde locks. Kudos Christina- if only other celebs could take note of this!

The $850 Linea Pro Swarovski hair straightener

I’m a big fan of bling, so am rather attracted to the Linea Pro Swarovski Crystal C2 iron. Sure, it’s hideously expensive, but if you have a Paris Hilton budget why not?

It features over 2500 Swarovski crystals applied individually (OMG, the time) and has titanium, plates, a PTFC heater ( uses far-infrared heat which gives even heat and has an instant reheat feature, plus safely penetrates the hair and protects it whilst styling it) , a digital temperature control and torumaline ceramic plates.

Get it for $850 here (made to order). [via the Luxist]

Get the celebrity hairstyle from Annabelle’s Wigs


I’m a big fan of wigs as they’re a fun way to radically change your hair colour and style very quickly, without all the stress and faffing around of salons. Annabelle’s Wigs offers a HUGE selection of styles and colours with prices to suit every budget. I recently attended a press day and was impressed at the variety and styles the company offered. The hair is all synthetic yet feels very soft and they offer everything from celebrity inspired hair (loving the Katy Perry blue version) to 3/4 length pieces that add volume to your real hair.

Apparently the Kate Middleton hairpiece has been selling fantastically possible because of all the themed parties soon to take place? Prices range to about £30 which is amazing value for a full length wig! I have my eye on the Dita Von Teese version.

Get your wigs from Annabelle’s Wigs here.
