WHAT TO WEAR AT CHRISTMAS: WEARABLE PARTY WEAR

Although I love a Gin and tonic as much as the next, I've hardly been out this season. I've much preferred sitting in watching Christmas films with my niece and nephews than painting the town red. So what happens when you're going out but you're not in to the whole 'party wear' look?

BRAND SPOTLIGHT: PARKA & KENZO WITH VERY EXCLUSIVE

If there's one thing I love, it's finding a new place to shop and discover new brands. Very Exclusive has been on my radar for a few months now, home to brands such as House of Holland, Rag & Bone and Saint Laurent you'll be sure to find exactly what you're looking for.

HOW TO WEAR: LAYERS IN WINTER PART 2


In a post last month I talked all about how to wear layers in Autumn/Winter, but since the days have gone colder I thought I'd do a quick update outfit that's really simply to recreate.

FIVE REASONS BEING SINGLE AT CHRISTMAS ISN'T ALL BAD


I've seen so many comments about everyone wanting a boyfriend when it comes to the colder months, but is it really that important for somebody else to make you happy? Obviously it would be great if everyone had their fairytale ending and was madly in love, but for some of us we've not quite made the first chapter yet. That's why I'm determined to enjoy Christmas as much as ever, just me myself and I!

HOW TO WEAR: LEATHER ON LEATHER WITH OASIS FASHION


You know that over used quote you see on Insta pretty much every day 'excuse me do you have this in black?' Well that's the story of my life! Black has got to be the most easily wearable colour, there's nothing worse for me than a clashing outfit of colour and prints - I'd look ridiculous!

WHEN DOES BEING HEALTHY BECOME UNHEALTHY?


If you've followed The Fashion Rubiks from the start, you'll know I've always struggled with my weight. Back in 2013 I decided to finally make a positive change in my life and cut out bad food and join the gym. At first it was fine, the weight dropped off and I really began to enjoy fitness classes and learning about nutrition and what to eat but that soon changed.

HOW TO FIND THE BALANCE BETWEEN WORK AND PLAY


So here I am, after weeks of not finding the time to shoot or blog and I'm at a complete cross-roads. How is it possible to find the balance between work, more work, blogging and a social life and what's the key to getting the balance right?

BRAND SPOTLIGHT: CALVIN KLEIN FOR VERY EXCLUSIVE


So the news is out, Very Exclusive have seriously stepped up their brand game by becoming a Calvin Klein stockist! Think oversized crop tees, skimpy jersey bralets with matching briefs and denim pieces are branded with the super iconic CK logo - drooling yet?
Share:

HOW TO WEAR: LAYERS IN AUTUMN/WINTER


The best thing about Autumn; layers! There’s nothing I like more that slipping on an oversized knit and long coat, there’s just something so cosy about being all wrapped when the temperature's so cold outside!

#MAKEYOURMARK: MARK HILL IN MARBELLA, THE DETAILS


As you've probably seen on Instagram (if not follow me NOW :) ) I headed off to Marbella for three days to host the Mark Hill new-look product launch. Shepperding 13 press and bloggers through Gatwick airport we made it out to Malaga to reveal the brand new packaging and products that have been in the making for years!
Share:

HOW TO WEAR: LONG COATS IN WINTER WITH MISSGUIDED


YEYYYYY it's coat weather!! Honestly I'm such a Winter lover there's something I just love about the colder days and darker nights - the moment it's acceptable for leather pants I'm all over it. Give me a hot chocolate over a Pimms any day!

Share:

BRAND SPOTLIGHT: LYST.COM RETAILER




So there's a new website I'm a little bit in love with and it's Lyst.co.uk! You can shop from Alexander Wang to Topshop and everything in-between. No matter what you want you'll be sure to find it by simply searching specific items such as 'grey skinny jeans' or by selecting the brand/designer... Pretty cool isn't it!

WHERE TO EAT IN LONDON: BREAKFAST EDITION, BILL'S RESTAURANT


If you're a serious foodie like me, there's nothing better than picturing a runny egg over fresh salmon and a toasted muffin -  mouth watering yet? APPROACH WITH CAUTION! The next few images will make you extremely famished and you'll be wishing it was time for brunch!

LONDON FASHION WEEK | OUTFIT TWO: H&M OVERSIZED KNIT DRESS


As the second part of my London Fashion Week experience, I opted for my usual casual look. There's something so draining about FW or it might of been the fact I'd not had a day to myself all month so I opted for something easy to throw on.

Share:

AUTUMN/WINTER READY | FAVOURITE TRENDS SO FAR

I'm so over Summer, bring on the roll necks and floor length coats. I've never really been a fan of Summer fashion, I'm all about layers and autumnal tones. I can't wait until that first bit of frost that allows for hats and knitted scarfs!
Share:

LONDON FASHION WEEK | OUTFIT ONE: MONKI LONGLINE DENIM JACKET


Don't you just love Fashion Week? For me it's a chance to catch up with all my faves down in London for the weekend. Although I practically go down every week anyway, but this is my time to relax and enjoy seeing everyone I practically speak to everyday!

WHAT TO WEAR ON HOLIDAY: POOLSIDE EDITION


Whilst in Marbella earlier in the month with Mark Hill Hair I finally got chance to shoot with Emily Cocklin, after a hectic few days I made sure I woke up super early to fit in a mini shoot before heading back to rainy Manchester.

HOW TO WEAR: MISSGUIDED MONOCHROME STRIPE CULOTTE CO-ORD


FINALLY a chance to snap this stripe co-ord! The babes over at MG sent me this to shoot whilst I was in Marbella, given the jampacked weekend I had to push it back slightly but I managed to take a few shots whilst down in London for the weekend.

KAREN MILLEN STORE LAUNCH PRIVATE DINNER | HAWKSMOOR, MANCHESTER

 
So not only did we get chance to preview the new store layout last week at Karen Millen last week, we were also taken for an exclusive private dinner at the newly opened Hawkmoor in Manchester, Deansgate. 
Share:

KAREN MILLEN STORE RELAUNCH | MANCHESTER, TRAFFORD CENTRE


Last week I was invited along to the store relaunch of Karen Millen at the Trafford Centre, after the brand changed direction last year I couldn't wait to see how the store looked. I always felt like Karen Millen was a more 30+ womenswear brand, like my Mum would go there to get an outfit for a special occasion. But Karen has almost been reborn again into a new, younger, cool Millen.

HEALTHY EASY MEAL: HOW TO EAT A HEALTHY BREAKFAST AT WORK


As I've mentioned before on my Eight 20: Fitness Plan post way back in 2013, I've literally tried every diet under the sun. It wasn't until I'd decided for the last time I was going to change the way I thought about food and start to eat the right stuff. In a four part sequel I'm going to talk you through some of my favourite healthy easy meals to make at work, starting with the most important meal of the day: breakfast.

HOW TO WEAR: LACE UP DENIM DRESS BY LAUNDRY BOUTIQUE

There's just something about a denim dress that takes me back to being seven again, although I decided to leave my stripy tights and suede Kickers in the memory box this time! So when I spotted this little number on Laundry Boutique I knew I had to have it.
Share:

BRAND SPOTLIGHT: SIZE? #LADIESTHATLACE LAUNCH

Last week I was invited along to trainer specialist size?'s latest event to celebrate the new womens flagship Manchester store launch and ongoing #LadiesThatLace campaign. Hosted at the Foundation Coffee House in Manchester's Northern Quarter, the event was not one to be missed.

HOW TO WEAR: ASOS TAN SUEDE TRENCH COAT | #ASSEENONME

Is it possible to be in love with a coat? Although it is August so I should probably still be in summer dresses and sandals but it's completely freezing up here in Manchester (as expected) so I thought I'd treat myself to this Tan Suede Trench Coat from ASOS.
Share:

BRAND SPOTLIGHT: ASOS WHITE COLLECTION

Let's just all take a minute to think about the ASOS White collection. Simple, minimal, clean and chic; what more could you possibly want? There's literally not one piece I wouldn't wear, from the oversized white parka coats to the Beetle Juice-eqsue shirt dresses as shown above, I'd happily donate my wardrobe to charity to have the entire collection. And with London Fashion Week just around the corner, I can 100% guarantee I'll be spotted in a piece!

FITNESS | WHICH GYM TRAINERS SHOULD I BUY?


Half of the battle at the gym is choosing the correct sportswear to enhance your workout but most importantly protect you from any injuries. Now I'm not talking 'do I wear my pink or purple kit?' I'm talking the trainers you choose. Whether it's for cardio or weight training, Metafit or HIIT training, trainers support you differently so make sure you choose the correct ones for you.

WORK | SWIMWEAR365'S NATIONAL BIKINI DAY PARTY : MOET TERRACE


As National Bikini Day approached there was only one way we planned to celebrate; champagne, sunshine and Swimwear365 of course!

Share:

HOW TO WEAR: STRIPE CAPE BLAZER | LINDSAY LOHAN x LAVISH ALICE

One of the serious perks of the job is finding out about all the latest news first. So when I heard about the potential collaboration between Lavish Alice and Mean Girls star, Lindsay Lohan I nearly fell off my chair! Known for her controversial past, Lindsay is surely a name we all know... But fashion, really?
Share:

BRAND SPOTLIGHT: FIVE MINUTES WITH RIANNA PHILLIPS

You've probably noted the reappearance of my first Rianna Phillips clutch in many of my posts and Instagram pictures, there's something about these hand designed clutches I just can't get enough of. So when I managed to score five minutes with Rianna herself about her upcoming London Fashion Week debut, I thought it would be fantastic idea to share this with you guys!

WHAT TO WEAR TO A PROM: YY EVENING PROM DRESSES


Now I love being set a challenge, so when YY Dresses approached me to create a piece around evening dresses, I jumped at the chance... It is prom season after all!

WORK | TRANSFORM GLASGOW NON-SURGICAL BEAUTY BLOGGER EVENT

Last month we held our second blogger event for the UK's leading provider of surgical and non-surgical treatments, Transform. After the success of the New Cavendish event we hosted back in November, where bloggers such as Lulutrixabelle and That Pommie Girl began to enquire about surgery, we thought we'd head up North to see what they thought of non-surgical procedures. 
Share:

HOTEL REVIEW | WHERE TO STAY IN GLASGOW: CITIZEN M HOTEL

On a recent trip to Glasgow for the Transform Non-Surgical Event (post to follow) we spent the night at one of six Citizen M hotels. Known for quirky decor and interior, Citizen M was not one to disappoint... But then anywhere with a giant portrait of Kate Moss in the entrance gets two thumbs up from me!

WORK | LYDIA ROSE BRIGHT LAUNCH EVENT

As some of you may have seen on my Instagram, just a few days after my trip to Marbella we headed to Wales with Label PR to launch the Lydia Rose Bright collection at the Celtic Manor Polo. In Lydia's own words 'It seems the perfect idea to launch my SS15 collection, the same way I met the love of my life, seven years ago. At a Polo event! All good things happen at the Polo!'
Share:

WHAT TO WEAR TO THE POLO: WHITE ON WHITE WITH ESPERAR BOUTIQUE

So earlier in the month, precisely 6 days after getting back for Marbella we headed off to the Celtic Manor Polo to launch Lydia Bright's new collection, Lydia Rose Bright. Set in Wales you can never be 100% on the weather, but I wanted to go for something bright given the occasion.

WHAT TO WEAR IN MARBELLA : POOL PARTY EDITION

As the last snippet in my What to Wear in Marbella guide, I thought I'd share with you a look I wore to the Ocean Club pool party.

WHAT TO WEAR IN MARBELLA: WHITE COLD SHOULDER MISSGUIDED DRESS

Ohhh to be back in Marbella! I don't know if you've seen my last post about Where To Go In Marbella but I literally had the BEST time! So much so me and my friends are looking at going back next month.

WHERE TO GO IN MARBELLA | SUMMER GUIDE 2015

Now I'm no pro on Marbella but I physically couldn't handle another trip to Ibiza - 'physically' being the prominent word in that sentence. If you've not been to Ibiza you probably don't know what I mean, but if you have - you must definitely do! So this year we decided to give Marbella a go, something I was quite worried about at first but I'm SO glad I did!
Share:

WORK | SWIMWEAR365 x THE SBCOLLECTIVE FITNESS EVENT

At Label PR we like to get creative and host unique events that really accentuate the client and align them with similar brands. So for Swimwear365 we decided to treat a small selection of bloggers to a 'Get Bikini Ready' fitness class with celebrity personal trainers Russell of The SBCollective. Who could resist a private session with Millie Mackintosh and Suki Waterhouse's personal coach ey?
Share:

PLACES TO EAT IN LONDON: THE NATURAL KITCHEN, BAKER STREET

So before our event with Swimwear365 and The SBCollective (post to follow) we'd been researching yummy but healthy food we could provide for the bloggers who attended. Coming across the The Natural Kitchen through my work buddy, I knew I had to try some more of the menu. So as I prepared myself to eat out alone (something that us Northern girls don't do often) I headed down to The Natural Kitchen to see what all the fuss was about.

HOW TO WEAR: BLACK TAILORED CULOTTES

So here I am, just days before I fly to Marbella for a week in the sun with my girls and Manchester was ridiculously miserable, like when you don't want to get out of bed and the thought of the coldness outside makes you get back under the quilts and snooze your alarm... There's only one thing for this mood 'all black everything!'

INTERLACED: THE GROWTH OF WEARABLE TECHNOLOGY

HOW TO WEAR BOHO CHIC: H&M WHITE LACE UP TUNIC
