I have spent the last few weeks carefully considering the latest shocking news that has affected our style choices, lifestyle choices and how we feel about ourselves – from Abercrombie and Fitch‘s lastest saga through to so many people hating the fact that plus sized models are now donning our high streets. Not exactly positive news. On top of this you then have the everyday news where people are senselessly killed and the economy is not looking so great. So I have decided to take a stand. Fridays will now be devoted too all the good news from around the globe – from fashion, body image, sports, everyday people – anything good that makes us smile and reminds us that there is some happiness out there. At the end of the day a little positivity goes a long way!!!
Todays news goes to Bridal gowns that look effortless and are affordable too – if you don’t need a wedding dress then skip to the end for a cute picture!
Over the last few days American store Target has been the focus of many fashion reviews, the majority have surrounded a new designer shoe line to hit the everyday items store, but they are not just offering shoed, they are also offering wedding dresses. I don’t know about you, but I love the idea of picking up my washing up liquid and a wedding dress at the same time! Ok, so some of you may be thinking,’No I still have my sight set on that designer beauty with the price tag to match’. However, if you are planning your wedding on a budget then this is excellent news and the dresses are REALLY cute too.

Well I am officially off on holiday in a few weeks and have spent a lot of time considering my travel, style and ultimately luggage needs. You see the problem is, I don’t pack light! I went to New York a few years ago, it was a ten day trip and I took enough outfits for 20 days – yes I am not joking. Out of those outfits I wore 9 of them and of course, I ended up buying ore clothing while I was there. This spurred my on to discovering the secret art of packing for holidays, looking at everything from destination, lifestyle, weather and the obligatory comfort factor.
I am not neat! There I said it, I am messy and the majority of my cloths will come out of my suitcase with millions of creases, but this doesn’t mean that I don’t make the best use of the space available to me when I am packing for my holidays. So, too help you out as well, here are some of my top tips for packing up your wardrobe to be displayed in foreign climates.

Do we all have beauty regrets? I am not sure that I do, the pink hair days were interesting, but that is why I liked it. However, some people have gone to the extreme in the pursuit of ‘beauty’ of the conventional kind. What happens when the surgery, injections or treatments that you have had make you more upset than you were before. Well I would personally say that you should take the regret and turn it into a positive, let it go and discover a new kind of beauty in myself – I know this isn’t true for everyone and a new Channel 4 program looks set to uncover some of the worst beauty mistakes ever made.

Today I am looking at the notion of beauty, what is beautiful? and how do we view beauty? We have all heard the phrase “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder” but I feel this doesn’t always stand up in modern society. I, like many of us, see beauty many times over in an average day; from the differences in flowers through to the sheer amount of variety in the vegetable isles of the supermarket. Now I know that sounds funny, but isn’t it wonderful how nature has created a wealth of beauty in so many forms. This raises the question though, why, if we see beauty in variety, do we still believe that beautiful faces all have to have the same qualities?
I find it sad when people constantly strive to be beautiful in the conventional sense, when in reality, we are all beautiful in many thousands of different ways. Now, don’t get me wrong, I use make up tricks to accentuate my eyes and wear certain clothes that flatter my figure. However, this I do this to project my beauty that I truly believe comes from inner confidence. It has taken many years to believe that I am beautiful and too this day I still have my doubts. I now recognize though, that these doubts come from media projected views rather than my own inner demons So today I want to celebrate all that is beautiful and steps that you can take to take back your beauty and celebrate it.
Look in the mirror

With festival season fast approaching in the UK, I have started to think about the essentials you need to take with you and for me, by far the most important thing is a jacket. I have spent so much money on jackets whilst I have been at a festival, I simply wouldn’t want to calculate it. Staying warm and dry is the key for me, when it rains all day long, why should you miss out on all the fun just because it is wet. So, today’s post is all about the best jackets for festivals and any outdoor pursuits you may be up to this summer.
