I love how simple this cover looks. And Emma Watson looks very beautiful in a natural way as always. I am happy to see she is back to acting after taking a year out to focus on her activism. It feels like I haven’t seen her in a movie in ages.

Speaking with Lorraine Candy, Watson talks about her new movie – Beauty and the Beast, taking time off acting for activism and everything else. Here are some quotes from her interview –

 

On taking a year off acting

‘It wasn’t about me necessarily proving anything… I was just thinking that I have this year to myself, so let’s see what we can do to ‘move the needle’ and make a difference.’

Good for her. We all should try to make a difference in our everyday life.

 

On her role in the new movie – Beauty and the Beast

‘For me, Beauty was the perfect, most joyful thing to do… There was something connected about Hermione and Belle, and it was good to be reminded that I am an actress; this is what I do. The film is pure escapism.’

It sounds like a great movie. I can’t wait to watch it.

On dealing with critics

‘It really toughened me up…There is a level of criticism that comes with being an actress and a public figure, which I expect, but once you take a stance on something like feminism, that’s a completely different ball game.’

One thing I know for a fact is that you can’t please everyone. So I live my life and do me unapologetically. And you should too.

This new issue of ELLE magazine sounds interesting. I will be looking out for it.

What do you think of this new issue? Are you a fan of Emma Watson?

Elle Fanning Covers ELLE UK February 2017

The lovely 18-year-old Elle Fanning is the cover girl for ELLE UK February 2017, and she looks beautiful.

I love how colourful the cover is. Her hair and makeup is on point (love the red lippie), and her blue outfit is very stylish. I really can’t fault this cover. ELLE ticked all the right magazine cover boxes.

I read a few excerpts from Elle Fanning’s interview with ELLE, and it sounds like it would be a great read. Here are some of them:

 

Limiting her social media presence

‘I recently turned my Instagram public on my 18th birthday, but I still don’t post everything I do, and I’m not on Twitter or Facebook. You have to leave a little mystery. With old movie stars, all you saw were rare interviews where they only shared what they wanted to – that’s what made them so interesting. You could separate the characters from the women, so if you watch them on-screen you’re not thinking about what they had for breakfast.’

I am impressed to see she is not as social media crazy as the rest of her peers. The deal with social media is to run it and not let it run you. She sounds like a smart young lady.

 

The power of silence

‘I’ve just finished shooting with Sofia Coppola and she’s one of the quietest people ever, but there’s a real power to her silence. When she just stares at you from across a take, you know you need to get the shot.’

 

I agree, there is real power in silence.

I would love to read this issue. I don’t see myself buying it, but I would grab it if I see it lying around in a waiting room for example.

What do you think of this issue? Will you be buying? Drop me a comment, let’s talk.

 

 

 

 

Keeping Up With the Kids: Winter Fashions

Dressing a baby is about as much fun as putting an octopus into a string bag sometimes, and while babies are not fashionistas, your talking toddler is likely to have an opinion on their own wardrobe. Little girls like to demand sparkly dresses and glittery shoes, and little boys love looking dapper in little shirts and dungarees. However, when winter rolls around, sparkly dresses and shirts need replacing, as they don’t hold up against snow and strong winds.

Party On This Season

Winter warmers of chunky knit cardigans, thick fleecy coats and matching hat and scarf sets are always on the rails as the colder days draw in and keeping the kids warm is the priority. Fashion-conscious little girls need not worry, though! Sparkly dresses can still feature in the winter months when paired up with patterned tights and smart winter boots. With parties for Halloween, Bonfire Night fireworks, Christmas and New Year filling up your child’s social calendar, you’ll need sparkly colourful wellies and sturdy shoes to keep those toes warm and brighten up even the coldest evening.

 

Snow Is Falling

Santa is coming again with Christmas patterns, special Christmas jumpers and ice-blue knits and thick tights on the agenda. Pair a thick pair of woollen trousers with a reindeer Christmas jumper for a smart warm look on your little boy this Christmas. Those Christmas party dresses won’t wear themselves, and joining a gorgeous red dress with a glittery faux-fur wrap can jazz up any little girl’s Christmas day outfit. Wrap up warm with toasty fleece-lined gloves and bobble hats for girls and boys and watch their faces light up in the glow of the fireworks at New Year.

 

Drab to Fab!

Winter fashion doesn’t have to be drab, with bold colours decorating knitted clothes and thicker leggings and glitter twinkling through the thread. There’s nothing like splashing out on a special Christmas Day or New Year’s Eve outfit for your little one, and finding kids designer wear with great prices attached doesn’t have to be difficult.

 

Layer Up

Looking for kids designer wear doesn’t have to be taxing when there are so many options to keep them toasty this winter. Finding fluffy onesies or all-in-one winter outdoor wear for your newborn baby isn’t difficult, and making sure they’re wearing the right number of layers gets easier when the vests and baby sleepsuits they wear are brightly coloured and thermal to keep the heat in. Children can rock the snowflake look this winter with designer clothes that keep them warm. Splash out on fleece-lined pyjamas and slippers for cosy nights at home. Summer may bring out the sunshine colours, but winter brings in the cool greens and blues that scream cosy. Dress your kids for the season and keep them stylish and toasty at the same time this winter!
