COACHELLA: Celebrity Fashion Picks 2015 - Bella Thorne, Kendall Jenner and more..

Hey loves,

 It's that time of year where me and my best friends wish we were at Coachella rather than studying *cough* I mean, procrastinating. This was the first year I really paid any attention to any youtuber's vlogs and being able to watch and pretend to experience what they experienced was fun. Hopefully one day, I'll be able to go.

One aspect I enjoy looking at, apart from the line-up is the fashion. Even though, home girl Vanessa Hudgens i.e Fashion Queen of Coachella wasn't there, there was still plenty of gorgeous pieces to admire.

Bella Thorne's style this year was something to admire this year at Coachella she wore this colourful, floral patterned dress with sandals and a flower crown. Other accessories entailed an arm of bangles, several necklaces and a teal, fringed bag.

Kate Bosworth brought chic into the mix with a cowboy-feel to Coachella. The white short dress accompanied with the tribal and Aztec jacket. Her tan, pointy boots add to the cowboy-look. Although I suppose she couldn't really fit that much in that tiny bag.

Kendall Jenner dominated Coachella candids with her "too-cool-for-this" expression and occasional smile. All of her Coachella outfits had that same bohemian vibe that others had but there was something high-fashion about her pieces that I admired. Teaming a white, off the shoulder, cropped top and split sheer trousers she also rocked a grey fringed bag and alligator styled pointy bags.

Rosie Huntington Whiteley killed it with this beautiful bohemian dress, the cut-out, patterned detail was wonderful. Adding simple pieces of jewellery without layering too much brings your eyes attention onto the dress and rightly so, it's gorgeous.

Victoria Justice can rock absolutely anything. Can someone tell me where she bought her skort from? I need it in my life. This bohemian patterned skirt teamed with a cropped white top makes the skort pop. Her lace up gladiator sandals match her large, floppy hat and the yellow fringed bag ties the look together. The statement necklace matches the teal on her skirt and compliments the white top perfectly.

Julianne Hough was one of my favourites for fashion at Coachella last year and this year she still didn't disappoint. This mustard yellow and white patterned play suit had dimension to it, courtesy of the tassels and frills. Pointy toed, tan boots were evidently an essential this year and I'm not complaining.

Alessandra Ambrosio (in fear of misspelling her name) wore a beautiful low-cut, light, tie-dyed maxi dress which looks absolutely beautiful on her. With gold and silver bangles on each arm and layered, tribal, silver necklaces she added a head piece as well.

My absolute favourite outfit at this years Coachella was worn by Bella Thorne, ever since seeing these styled pants I have wanted some but I just can't rock it to Bella's level. She's paired it with a top of my favourite cut, off-the-shoulder and cropped she did well to finish off the look with black sandals, bangles and a beautiful necklace that pulls the look together.

I hope you enjoyed this post guys,

I saw youtuber Gabrielle Lindley purchase it and she said that she thoroughly enjoyed it. It's been getting pretty raving reviews recently and I'm excited to try it out. Nail-wise I had to buy something new that was the complete opposite of my usual black nail varnish so I opted for Barry M Gelly Shine's nail paint which is one of my favourite and most affordable nail varnishes that has a beautiful finish. I wanted Spring colours, bright colours and colours that complimented my skin tone. Who else is excited for COLOUR?!

Kids Choice Awards 2015: BEST DRESSED!

Hello lovelies!

I'm a sucker for a good old Kids Choice Awards show, partly for the fashion and then for the slime. I grew up watching the Kids Choice Awards online and have adored every aspect of it. It normally happens around Spring time so this year you just had to expect vibrant colours. It's great to note that if you were to take anything away from the awards show, it's some great fashion inspiration. I picked out some of my most favourite looks with a bit of commentry. Comment with your favourite picks as well, hope you enjoy this post guys!

Ariel Winter looks amazing in this speckled dress and nude heels, the colour palette of this dress contains all of the bright colours you would expect Spring to bring: oranges, yellows, greens and blues. In many ways it's almost as if an artist flicked his paintbrush onto it in the most beautiful manner.

Laura Morano's purple/blue dress with awesome cut-outs and silk fabric was beautifully worn and adorned with gorgeous pointed metallic grey high-heels, she looked fabulous!

Megan Nicole is one of my favourite Youtuber musicians and it's always so great watch that journey unfold - there is a more personal element to it. Her halter-neck crop top complimented the fullness of her matching skirt and her white strapped heels break up the amount of yellow she's wearing and it looks wonderful on her.

I have admired Sarah Hyland's hilarious performance on Modern Family for a while now and she always brings the house down with her glorious fashion sense and here she really pulled off a gorgeous look that brightened up the path towards Spring. 

TREND ALERT: A Spring fashion trend that hit the runways recently was in fact white-on-white and she pulled it off wonderfully from the subtle pattern on her midi-skirt to the strappy heels and plain tee.

Iggy Azalea also carried the brightness of Spring on her top half with a white crop top but finished it off with a blue, metallic, exotic printed maxi-skirt. The fabric appears stiff and ridgid but I love how it is cinched in at the waist and just flows out. 

TREND ALERT: Another fashion trend hot for Spring is Eastern Influence and this outfit portrays that beautifully.

Fifth Harmony are my favourite regardless of what they wear! Their outfits tied in so beautifully together playing predominantly on white, silver and black, their stylists need a raise because each look is fantastically put together so much so that I cannot pick a favourite. However, the pieces that I particularly adore Ally's embellished jacket, Normani's beaded playsuit and Lauren's jacket, leather skirt and black strappy heels.

I hope you enjoyed this Kids Choice Awards 2015 fashion post, comment if you agree with me on this best dressed list and comment if you disagree with me, I'd love to know your thoughts!

All my love,
God bless,

Hello April!

Where are these months going? We are already four months into 2015, it feels like it was just yesterday that I was recovering from my Christmas food baby and now I guess I have no excuse for it. 

April's arrival means that Spring is here which means flowers, warmth, sun (she hopes) and a noticeable uplift in everyone's temperament.

Along with a new season comes new clothes, new nail trends, hairstyles and colour palettes so I wanted to answer a few questions that I found on Caroline!

1 . What three colours remind you of Spring?
Yellow, Green and all forms of pastel. I'm so excited to wear even more colour than I already do - which on some days, is too much.

2. What is the first thing you add to your Spring wardrobe?
Florals, florals and more florals. Or vibrants prints normally in scarf-form. I'm obsessed.

3. What is the first item that you ditch from your wardrobe to make it more Spring-like?
I'll let go of black. Or will I?

4. What are your ultimate nude and bright lipsticks?
I don't wear nude lipsticks because I feel like I suit colour a lot more and seeing as it's Spring and I have to let go of my more darker colours. I am on the lookout for fuschias. It's bold, and something that I've never tried before but I'm ecsatic to try them out.

5. What is your signature Spring fragrance?
Victoria Secret's Daydream is a favourite of mine.

6. What do you add or drop from your skin care routine?
Lighter foundations is a must, I've been wanting to have a break from heavy foundations that I've been wearing in the Winter.

7. Do you change your hair up in Spring?
I haven't been to the hairdressers in years, my hair is almost down to my butt so I shall change it up by cutting it, I hope to cut a few more layers into it for a lighter touch as well - this will all be worth it and easier to handle.

8. Are there any exciting beauty releases that you can’t wait for?
Revlon's Ultra HD Lipsticks and Lip Lacquers and the Tarte Tartelette Shadow Palette.

9. What are your three favourite nail colours for Spring?
I currently have Turqouise on my nails from the Barry M Gelly collection. I can feel myself getting into White and a light Blue this Spring.

10. Who do I tag?
Karla Vargas! :D
