Spring Fashion: Bold Patterns From River Island

Image
Our winter woolies have served us well over these past few months, but it's now time to give our wardrobes a bit of a spring clean and slip into something a little more colourful.
The High Street is full of beautifully bold (and totally wearable) designs at the moment that will take you all the way into high summer. So, here's a little edit of a few of my favourite pieces from River Island that I am completely in love with.
Culottes 
I've always had a love / hate relationship with culottes but this season's styles are so sassy I just couldn't resist! With a tie waist and loose, wide legs, their a trouser style that suits all shapes and sizes. A perfect summer alternative if you don't want to flash too much flesh.
Stripes

Stripes are back - and this season, they're all funked up! I love this hanky hem vest because it requires minimal effort but is still bold and interesting. With a V-neck front and key hole detail on the back, it's a little bit more than you…

Spring Beauty Picks: Joan Collins Timeless Beauty Range

Image
It's officially Spring and I couldn't be any happier! It's as if the whole world has suddenly woken up from its winter slumber. The days are drawing out. The sun is shining brighter. Strawberries are in season... Life is good!
With vibrant colours brightening up my days again and a glorious spring in my step, it occurred to me that my makeup bag would appreciate a new splash of colour.
Being such a beauty addict, I'm always on the lookout for new brands to try and during a recent beauty haul, I discovered the Joan Collins Timeless Beauty Range. Like a magpie, I was instantly attracted to the range by the beautiful gold art deco packaging, which simply exudes elegance and glamour. 
After testing some of the Divine Lips Lipstick shades against my skin, I admired how creamy they were and how gorgeous they looked. My favourite shades were Bella and Lara; two of the new fun, fresh and flirty shades in the collection, which are available as lipsticks or nail varnishes. Ther…

Body Beautiful: The May Fair Spa, London

Image
In our busy, chaotic, London lives - time is precious.
We constantly rush around and it's not often that we stop and think about our wellbeing. We may look fine on the outside, but many of us are internally harbouring tiredness, stress and anxiety, which can impact our health.

Health is all encompassing and human evolution has taught us that there is a definitive link between physical health and psychological wellbeing. So, last week I decided that I'd take a little bit of time out of my busy schedule to work on my mind, body and soul at The May Fair Spa, London

A short walk from Green Park underground station, The May Fair Spa is located on the lower floor of The May Fair Hotel. On arrival, I was warmly greeted by the receptionist who handed over a health and safety consent form and gave me a tour of the spa. A cosy and intimate setting, the facilities include a wet spa area, several treatment rooms and a relaxation room. With plenty of time before my spa treatment, I got biki…

Weekend: Kesgrave Hall, Ipswich

Image
An evening away from reality can work wonders for your inner peace.
Last weekend, my boyfriend and I left our home comforts in Essex in exchange for a Grade 2 listed boutique hotel, set in the relaxed Ipswich countryside. Part of the Milsoms group, Kesgrave Hall offers a very charming welcome - a fabulously white manor house surrounded by acres of beautiful open lawns - that encourages you to forget all your worries and surrender to the calm.

On entering Kesgrave Hall, it is evident that this is not just your average hotel. Modern and luxurious but sprinkled with colourful personality, Kesgrave Hall boasts 23 en-suite bedrooms and is perfect for those who prefer an intimate hotel setting that still has plenty of wow-factor.


After a very warm welcome in the lovely open reception area, we ascended the curving staircase and were shown to our room. We were booked into one of Kesgrave's TOP rooms and boy, was it worth it! Complete with a super-kingsize bed, matching his-and-hers sinks,…
