Ashley Graham Covers Harper’s Bazaar July 2017

Hey peeps! A new day, a new magazine cover. Today’s cover is all about the latest issue of Harper’s Bazaar, and Ashley Gralam is slaying on the cover.

I really like this magazine cover. It is a great shot and that beautiful smile is sure to attract thousands if not millions of eyeballs on the newsstands. I can’t wait to see it in flesh.

Ashley Gralam kind of looks like Eva Longoria on this magazine cover. I had to take another look to confirm it was really Ashley Gralam, and I am sure I am not the only one that would think that. Do you think both ladies look alike? I think they do.

I am a fan of anything Ashley Graham. I think she is a phenomenon woman and astonishing beauty. And I truly admire her.

Ashley Graham prefers to call herself a body activist, rather than a plus-size model – but labels are less important than her bold confidence and voluptuous curves, along with her campaigning message of female empowerment, self-acceptance and the compelling beauty of diversity.

On the subscriber’s cover, Ashley wears shirt by Marina Rinaldi, shorts by Good American, earrings her own. This is also photographed by Alexi Lubomirski.

One thing I really admire about Ashley is her carriage. I think she carries herself really well. She is the definition of a strong, beautiful and body confident woman.

Graham is a size 18, and proud of it. “I love my body,” she says. “When I look in the mirror, I see a woman who is strong and ambitious, satisfied with who she is,” she says.

This Harper’s Bazaar July issue is now available on the newsstands. Have you read it? Will you be reading it?

5 Ways to Add Some Luxury to your Bedroom

Ever looked at your bedroom and wondered how to make it look as luxurious and stylish as half the rooms on your favourite Pinterest board? Over time, it’s common for your bedroom to feel dull, boring and in desperate need of an update, but figuring out the best way to transform your bedroom often feels like a mammoth task. If you want to give your room an update but need some quick inspiration, have a read of these easy tips to help give your space a sophisticated, luxurious makeover in no time.

Think about lighting

The type of lighting you use can have a big impact on the appearance of your bedroom. Ditch your worn out light shade for some chic hanging lights or tasteful chandeliers to easily insert some glamour into any room. As for bedside lamps, consider wall lights as a more sophisticated alternative, with the added bonus of being cord free which is a great way to keep the bedroom looking minimal, and minimise the appearance of clutter.

 

Consider your bed

The bed is typically the focal point of any bedroom, meaning you should pay special attention to the frame and bedding used. Investing in a 6ft Divan bed is the perfect way to add some luxury to your room, with simple yet stylish designs, and space to store all your bits and bobs to avoid clutter. Go for bedding in beautiful colours and designs, and pay special attention to layering up your bed with soft throws and lots of cushions. They might be a pain to rearrange each morning, but the results are well worth it!

 

Optimise your space

 Making your bedroom look bigger can be a good way to give it that hotel room feel, and is easier to achieve than you’d think. Placing a large mirror across from the opposite of the room can work wonders, creating the illusion of more space in an instant! The colours you use in your room can also play a factor. Try painting your walls in light shades such as white, grey or beige, and then opt for a darker colour for the ceiling to create the illusion of higher ceilings by drawing the attention upwards.

 

Find some statement pieces

While you don’t want to over clutter your bedroom with too much furniture, it’s definitely worth hunting down some perfect key pieces to bring everything together. A stylish rug, bedside cabinet and chair with a bold colour or pattern are just a few items that can easily give your room a quick update. A beautiful piece of framed artwork should also not go amiss, being the perfect way to add personality and character.

 

Add some florals

Once the majority of the room has been transformed, create some final finishing touches with a selection of beautiful bouquets. Flowers are a lovely way to decorate your home, and give you the chance to get creative in arranging your bouquets just how you like them! Place florals in elegant vases on bedside tables, dressing tables or shelves for a really easy, quick and cost-effective way to spruce up your space.

What Would you do with a Self Driving Car

As some of you may know by now, I am yet to pass my UK driving test. I have been learning to drive on and off for over 6 years now, and it has been an exhausting experience. I had to move from learning to drive a Manuel car to an Automatic car, but still no joy.

I gave up on it some years ago, but I am ready to start my driving lessons and pass my driving theory and practical tests quickly, so I can get the car of my dreams. This Transport of the Future Around the World infographic by Aceparts below has left me wishing I didn’t have to take a driving test to drive a car legally. Just stop and imagine that for a second. Everyone being able to drive once you are of age, and the car literally driving itself. That would be so cool!

I have been following The Lutz Pathfinder project closely and I am really looking forward to seeing it on the roads. For someone who has struggled to pass her driving test for so many years, having a car drive itself would be the best thing ever! I just hope it comes in a great size for car seats, buggies, bags and the rest. The current size I see looks way too small for busy families like ours, but I guess the development team is still testing the waters with this LUTZ pods.

For those who have never heard of these self-driving car development; The Lutz Pathfinder Project, which began developing autonomous technology in 2014, is all about having cars drive automatically without a driver controlling the car. It is the most highly anticipated technology and I can’t to see what these cars can do.

I know what I would if I had a self driving car.

  1. I would be able to drive everywhere I need to, which would be amazing.
  2. I would be able to apply my makeup on the go, which would mean I would never be late anywhere again.
  3. I would be able to go out more, and see more of my city, which would be fun.
  4. I would be able to save my money and time from learning to drive, which would be great.
