Ariana Grande On Cosmopolitan UK May 2017 Issue

The cute Ariana Grande covers the May issue of Cosmopolitan UK and she looks lovely as always. I love her signature ponytail hairdo, and her makeup is always on point. This is a fab cover!

I can clearly see myself reading this issue. From the topics on the cover, it looks like it would be a great read. I would love to read the “Dress like a Boss” article, “How to join the 150k Job Club”, and “Beauty Bloggers: Can we trust anything they say” articles. They sound interesting.

I do find it funny that magazines editors are mostly threatened by bloggers in general, I find it extremely flattering. I am not sure if this Beauty Bloggers article is a positive or negative article, but it is funny that many of these magazine bosses are having sleepless nights over bloggers.

I think there is more than enough room for magazines and bloggers, there should be no competition or bad blood at all. I celebrate the magazines I read, and I truly enjoy writing about them. I have been reading magazines long before I started reading blogs or writing on Fashion and Style Police, and I have a separate place in my heart for magazines and blogs. They feed a different part of me in different ways.

I like blogs because I can relate more to them, and I like magazines because I can’t relate with them, if that makes any sense. I do prefer reading blogs to magazines and that could be because I am a blogger and blogs are free!

 

 

Anyways, back to Ariana Grande. She looks gorgeous on the cover and I want to read this issue now.

What do you think? Have you read this issue? Please sound off in the comments section below.

Thanks for reading and enjoy the week!

Mother’s Day Gift Guide

Mother’s Day is on Sunday, March 26, and  I know many of us struggle with gift ideas for mothers on Mother’s Day. Sometimes we are also left feeling overwhelmed and even more confused with the many gift options available, so I am going to keep this short and sweet.

Henry London Shoreditch Mesh Strap Watch with Trio Dial

I am a sucker for anything Rose Gold. I think it is a very pretty shade, and I am naturally drawn to it. I guess that explains my forever growing collection of Rose Gold items.

This elegant Shoreditch watch from Henry London, available on the AMARA Website, is a great gift idea for Mother’s Day. It features a Milanese mesh strap and luxurious rose gold casing merging effortlessly into a domed lens. The dial boasts soft rose-pink tones with a trio of sub-dials to depict the time in 24 hours and time the seconds.

You can also add a personalised message at the back of the watch.

This beautiful watch currently retails for £165.

 

Elie Beaumont Personalised Stone Leather Watch

Still on watches, I love the attention to detail with this Elie Beaumont Personalised Stone Leather Watch. The luxury packaging is superb as you can see, and the watch itself is a classic modern beauty.

The stunning watch available on the PrezzyBox website, features a thick stone coloured leather strap made from genuine quality leather with a large 38mm cream dial, and rose gold detailing, to give it that beautiful finish I love so much.

You can also include a personalised message at the back of this modern vintage watch by Elie Beaumont.

It currently retails at £54.95.

 

Perkins and Morley Wild Wood Cushions

Here is another fab gift idea for Mother’s Day; Perkins and Morley Wild Wood Cushions are great for Mothers who have a quirky sense of humour, and love their wildlife. It is also great for Mums that love updating their home decor.

I adore the beautiful and colourful designs!

This is the Wild Wood Rabbit Cushion

This is the Wild Wood Squirrel Cushion

They would make a great present this Mother’s Day. They are available from £29.99.

What do you think of these items? Are you sorted for Mother’s Day?

OOTD: One Spring Day

I am loving the cool spring weather at the moment. The weather is no longer painfully cold, so my bare legs are out for as long as possible. How are you enjoying spring? Has spring sprung where you are at?

 

 

I love wearing dresses in the spring/summer months, I guess that is due to the fact that I have been stuck in heavy coats, jeans and tights all through winter. I find dresses comfortable and easy to style.

Take this black dress I have on for example; all I had to do was to throw on a few accessories and I was good to go. That is the beauty of a little black dress, it never goes out of style, and it is dead easy to dress up.

 

 

This black embroidery smock dress is a new wardrobe addition; I got it some few weeks ago. I love the floral embroidery detail a lot. It is a perfect piece, and it is great for transitioning from winter to spring (just pop on a blazer and a pair of tights if you need one), and from day-to-night (with a change of accessories).

 

 

“I’ve always thought of accessories as the exclamation point of a woman’s outfit.” -Michael Kors.

I saw this quote online some days ago and it hit the nail on the head, with regards to the major role accessories play in an overall look. I think accessories are very important; they determine how good or bad an outfit would turn out, so I like to pay my accessories special attention, even more than my pieces.
