As we gear up for Round 2 of Coachella this weekend, we look forward to what style await us (and in my case, admiring this from very afar!). Last week’s winner was definately Kate Bosworth in her beautiful Topshop ensemble… Images: MailOnline
Beauty Crush: Leighton Meester
Gorgeous fresh dewy complexion, babydoll lashes and a striking red lip…. what red carpet beauty should be! Stunning. Image: l-meester.org

Crazy for Cheryl
As I am off to the Girls Aloud Ten Tour in London tonight, I figured it quite fitting to marvel at how beautiful Cheryl’s new L’Oreal shot for their Sublime Bronze Dry Mist Tan is. Am I right in guessing that those God Awful tattoos have been airbrushed out? Or just hidden?! Either way, I think we can all agree everything about this image is completely stunning. Image: The Daily...
Noah Noah Noah
Ladies and gents, Noah Mills… Just because. Could he be any more beautiful? Mr Mills has shot many stunning campaigns but his Calzedonia 2011 one will always be a firm favourite of mine! Image: The Fashion Spot
Go Girls Go Go Go
Yes! This is happening, Tonight. In The O2 Arena, London. Cannot wait!! Image: Digitalspy.co.uk
ELLE loves Rihanna!
I loooooooooooooooooove coming in from a long, busy day and seeing new ELLE waiting for me in the hall (being a subscriber is great!). And wow, look at this one! Rihanna is this month’s cover girl and she looks strikingly beautiful with her pixie crop. The above is the subscriber edition cover which is a super dramatic, super sharp and super sexy look for the Barbados songstress. With 5...
My next two purchases shall be… YSL Touche Eclat Foundation, £29. I have been contemplating buying this for some time now, and after hearing nothing but amazing things I shall bite the bullet and give it a go! I like a slightly dewy look (can dust some MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural on top) and sometimes need some help looking alive in the mornings after five 6am alarm calls in a row,...
Absolutely IN LOVE with my new Topshop floral bodycon dress, £29. I spotted this online a few weeks ago and finally ventured to the Marble Arch store (one of the few in London stocking it) and low and behold, they had one left - in my size! It was a sign! Meant to be. The fit is perfect and it’s very different to anything else I have bought recently. I plan to rock it with some booties,...
Joy for Jennifer
After spending a good hour catching up on all Oscars-related goss today, my star of the show is the lovely Jennifer Lawrence who picked up BEST ACTRESS for Silver Linings Playbook. The 22 year old (yes she is ONLY 22) is having a hugely successful award season and now has a coveted Academy Award to add to her collection. The witty young one suffered a little tumble over her white...
It’s true these March issues have been out a few weeks now BUT I have only recently started blogging again so am a bit late to the party with declaring my love… My favourite magazine covers this month are all UK counterparts. Elle - Victoria Beckham There is very little Vicky B (as I like to endearingly call her) can do wrong in my eyes. I love her style, her ambition, her humour,...
Rosie Miss Rosie...
Not going to lie, I have a LOT of catching up to do with New York, London and Milan (so far) Fashion Weeks. Gone are the days when I could follow each show in real time via social media and live streams as they happened. Now my manic London lifestyle means I usually have a whopper 2-3 hour catch up some Sunday afternoon once all four weeks have ended (which I very much look forward to). But one...
Cannot bear to live without...
…. my bottle of L’Oreal Kerastase’s Elixir Ultime oil. I bought this online when my beloved (or so I thought - until now, that is…) Moroccan Oil ran out and Feelunique,com had 20% off one day. It IS very pricey but as only a small amount is needed every time, I figured it would last a long time - which it has. Cannot begin to describe how amazing this is! I comb a little...
Ok so on a fashion-only note, the ceremony was a bit of a flop this year. So many shocking errors (I am looking at you Rita Ora, Katherine Jenkins, Lana Del Ray, Little Mix, Jessie J, Lisa Snowden and don’t even get me started on you, Gemma Arterton and Stooshe!) but there was one star who really nailed it and put them all to shame…. Little Miss Taylor Swift. Taylor’s stunning...
New York Fashion Faves
My personal faves from the New York Fashion Week S/S 13 Collections… Charlotte Ronson DKNY Herve Leger by Max Azria Michael Kors Monique Lhuillier Victoria Beckham Zac Posen Jason Wu In general, I wasn’t blown away though, which was a bit disappointing. Roll on London…. Images: Style.com
Smoke & Jackal
Obsessed! When two of my favourite musicians get together I know it’s going to be good! Smoke & Jackal is the side project of Kings of Leon bassist, Jared Followill, and Mona’s front man, Nick Brown. The two have been friends for years and the EP (to be released on October 16th, with ‘No Tell’ being released on Aug 28th) blossomed over a few drinks at Brown’s...
Totally crushing on this photo of Nicole Scherzinger from September’s British ‘Cosmopolitan’ magazine. She is definately a hair and beauty inspiration of mine! Gorgeous. Image: JustJared
Loving this shot of Lady Gaga by Mert & Marcus from American’s Vogue prestigous September issue. Yes it’s airbrushed of course but for Gaga, it is simple, classy and beautiful. More of this type stuff please Lady - although maybe with clothes on next time. Image: Vogue.com
Maith thú Katie!
Very very proud of Ireland’s Gold medalist, ladies boxing light champ Katie Taylor! I admit I know nothing about boxing, but following her Olympics journey has been so exciting and it warms my heart how our nation near and far have united in supporting her! It was a great moment for our little country and a fanatastic achievement for our World Champion! GO KATIE GO!!! Image: RTE.ie
Every now and again, a cover will come along and make me go WOW! And this month, it’s Gwen Stefani on American Harper’s Bazaar shot by Terry Richardson. How beautiful is Ms Stefani?! SO doll-like! Just Wow. That is all I can say. It’s fun, it’s fresh and it’s cute. There are very mixed reviews online but I LOVE it! Images: tumblr/wearethebelievers1
This month, I am completely lusting after the Isabel Marant Dicker Boots in Taupe! The much-coveted boots, retailing at £325, were such a hit a few seasons ago that Matches in London brought them back in stock last month (only for them to sell out again!). They have graced the feet of pretty much all my style icons including Miranda Kerr and Kate Bosworth… Sigh, so beautiful and...
After a few months of no laptop, I am back in action!! And my first post goes to the beautiful Ashley Greene and her amazing Nylon covershoot. Along with her stunning DKNY campaign and these additional photos on the magazine’s website, Miss Greene is proving to be quite the model! And here are my two favourites from the magazine spread… Dreammmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmy! Photos:...
So British Vogue have popped Kate Moss on the cover yet again - this time for their Olympics-based edition. Out of interest I need to research just how many times she has appeared now. It is a bit of a yawn-inducing choice at this stage…. but… Look how seriously amazing the cover is??? Probably my fave. Everything about this is utterly breath-taking! Image: Vogue’s Twitter
Coachella Coolest Of All
I know I should probably rename this the ‘I Love Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’ Tumblr at this stage, but how amazing did she look at Coachella in her Style Stalker blouse and Christopher Kane shorts?? Image: Instyle UK
Hair & Beauty Winner
Miss Ashley Greene rarely gets it wrong where her hair & make-up are concerned… Image: Daylife
Apart from a few very low-neck tops, is David Gandy officially the best dressed male model? Sigh…. I think so! Images: The Fashion Spot
Beauty Crush: Nina Dobrev
My two style favourites from the California music festival that I NEED to attend some year… Diane Kruger. Emma Watson Images: Marie Claire UK
I watched The Ides of March last night and was VERY impressed. Really good movie full of twists and great acting. Lives up to the hype. I recommend. Also a huge fan of the very sweet chemistry and mutual respect between Ryan Gosling and George Clooney at the various premieres and press conferences for the movie. Seriously. How cute are they?
Just a few of my faves… Model, Karlie Kloss Actor, Liam Hemsworth. Model and actress, Rosie Huntington-Whitely. Model, Noah Mills. Actress, Gillian Zinser. Kings of Leon’s Followill brothers. Model, Adriana Lima. Actress, Frieda Pinto. And my current personal favourite… Actor, Ryan Gosling.
Because I ALWAYS have my eye on things in that store… Fantasy Fabric Blazer Leopard Shirt with Collar Maxi Pleated Skirt Wooden Wedge Shoe Cross Strap Sandal Leather Clutch

Ad Love: Coco Rocha for Longchamp
Hands down my FAVOURITE campaign of Spring 2012, Longchamp’s latest shots feature models Coco Rocha and Liisa Winkler dancing through the streets of New York. As an animal-lover, my favourite two portraits are the ones of Coco playing with the equally-very-handsome dog. The chemistry between the two is adorable, and they make a very striking pair. The campaign was shot by Dane Shitagi. ...
Album of the Month
Lana Del Ray - Born To Die I am OBSESSED with this album! Since stumbling across ‘Video Games’ last month, I have pretty much had this lady on repeat. Her voice, haunting melodies and honest lyrics are refreshing and different to anything else around at present. In short, this ‘wan lives up to the hype. Check her out. Image: Digital Spy
The Brit Awards 2012
I had the honour of attending The Brit Awards this week for the first time. It’s an award show I have always wanted to go to and it didn’t disappoint - lots of banter, great performances and even better frocks! Miss Rihanna stole the show for me in her Givenchy number… Also big love for Adele’s new locks and Abbey’s pale pink minidress… And my woman of...
Beautiful portrait of Kim… LOVE this shot of Kylie, Khloe and little Mason… So pretty! And finally…. could Miss Kendall BE any more stunning? Little beaut!
Is Noah Mills the best looking man in the entire world? Possibly… Sigh…. Dedicating my 100th post to him.
My favourites from last night’s Screen Actor Guild Awards are: Lea Michelle in Versace Wow! Lea has set the standard for best award-season look VERY high with this thigh-slit little number… She looks amazing, and stole the show. Rightly so. Giuliana Rancic in Basil Soda I want this dress! The colour, shape and fabric is so flattering, and really elongates her figure. Images:...
Ka-ching Miss Chung...
I adore Alexa Chung but have always thought her legs could do with a tiny bit more meat on them. However, could they look any better on the new ELLE UK’s subscribers cover?! This arrived in my door on Saturday morning and I think it’s STUNNING. As Lorraine Candy said, she has been putting Alexa on the cover for seven years now and it ALWAYS works. Beautiful.
Suits Officially the coolest thing on TV. I have only seen two episodes of this witty legal drama so far but am already hooked. Plus how cute is Patrick J. Adams (on right)? War Horse Obsessed doesn’t quite cover it! I went to see this movie last week and I still can’t stop thinking about it. It was incredibly moving and hard work at times but really touching and incredibly...
Golden Globes Girlies
My style-faves from last night’s shenanigans in Beverly Hills… Jessica Alba in Gucci My number one.She ticks every single box with this look and was really sweet and down to earth in her red-carpet interview. I dig this girl. A lot. Plus, I loved her body shimmer. Reese Witherspoon in Zac Posen The hair and colour of this dress are to die for. She really is a blonde Jessica...
Just because. She is Amazing. Serious style/girl crush. Images: Daylife.com
Congrats to Lily Aldridge and her husband Caleb Followill on the announcement they are expecting. One thing is for sure, that baby will be blessed with good genes! Images: twitter.com/nomadrj and Just Jared
A little bit obsessed with Ashley Greene’s DKNY Jeans campaign… LOVE the fringe! What a beautie. Image: The Fashion Spot
Marlon Teixeira… Because let’s be honest, he is just ridiculously beautiful… Image: The Fashion Spot / malemodelscene
Happy New Year!
Time to get back to some blogging. What better way to start 2012 than with one of my beauty icons - the immaculate Miranda Kerr! What a little stunner! Images: Daylife
I am a huge fan of the UK’s Marie Claire but I must admit they have been massively trumped by their US counterparts in the cover department this month. Here is Angelina Jolie on the US January 2012 edition… Completely flawless, stunning, beautiful, immaculate, breath-taking… you get the message. I love it. Now here is Kelly Rowland on the UK January 2012 edition… ...
