With the release date for the new Disney movie Maleficent, the untold story of 1959 Disney ‘Sleeping Beauty’ villain, fast approaching(May 30th 2014), news that jewellery designers Crows Nest has teamed up with Disney to bring a collection is fast spreading.
So if your a little to old to collect the classic movie souvenirs the Disney store has to offer and have a butt load of cash, then maybe Crows Nest is the answer for you.
Inspired by the movie designer Daniel Belevitch used: fire, thorns, dragons and feathers as his pattern to create a seven piece collection, consisting of rings, bracelets, and ear cuffs. Each piece is made from rhodium and black diamonds, and feature a pear-shaped onyx stone.
Although these items are completely out of my budget, with prices ranging from $4,500 – $24,500 … a girl can admire them from afar.
Summers in the office can be DEADLY… the heat, the smell, the stick.
Finding summer office attire can be a hard transition as you don’t want to give off the wrong impression. However, thanks to our friends at H&M, Zara, Forever 21 etc finding summer appropriate items to mix into your office attire is a little bit easier.
Melting in your shirt and pants ensemble? Try switching those pants out for a cute pair of shorts, or a flowy skirt.
Sizzling in the structure of the classic office dress? Wear a slightly less form fitting dress, and try wearing summer friendly materials, such as cotton and linen.
Just by switching out various items in your outfit, can guarantee you a better cooler summer working experience.
After a great Saturday night with some amazing friends, drinking in the moonlight… it was pretty simple to figure out what I wanted to talk about today……ALCOHOL.
Last night I figured I would let my Canadian friends in on a British summer treasure… The Pimm’s Cup. May I say… THEY BLOODY LOVED IT!
The Pimm’s cup is an incredibly refreshing drink consisting of:
You can also add things like: raspberries, strawberries, oranges, apples, mint etc. It’s also a cute idea to serve your Pimm’s cup in a mason jar.
So if your looking for a new summer drink, do try out the British classic…. I know you’ll love it. But do be warned it can be deadly.
My style crush of the week is the gorgeous Rosie Huntington Whitely. My British sister RULED this 2014 Cannes Film Festival with her effortlessly chic looks.
I want to wear EVERY single outfit… waaaaaaa
She wore a slinky black Cushnie Et Ochs dress for the De Grisogono party she finished it off perfectly with a pop of color in her earrings.
For the premiere for ‘The Search’ she wore a perfectly fitting embroidered Gucci gown with minimal accessories.
To top it off she killed it by wearing a Emilio Pucci gown to the amfAR Aids Gala… although pointer I did hate the black shoes.
Well Miss Rosie Huntington Whitely a massive congratulations to your talented stylist… and of course you for creating yourself some show stopping Cannes. STUNNING!
For my first fashion Friday, I wanted to talk about something that is a staple in my closet!
I have pretty much been OBSESSED with jumpsuits for the past year and I am so happy that they are now accessible to purchase thanks to our wallet happy friends … H&M, Forever 21, Zara etc.
There is something about a jumpsuit that is so chic… they are so comfortable.
Wear it casual with a pair of flats or your fav converses for a casual everyday look or spice it up for a night out with a pair of heels.
However you wear your jumpsuit just know you look chic … without the effort! (shhh)

Well if your breathing then you know it is currently Cannes Film Festival. All of our fav actors, actresses, models, producers, directors etc all gathered in the small but luxurious city of Cannes.
Last night while we were sat in our pj’s watching the premier of the new show ‘I wanna marry Harry’ (separate blog post to come), most of our fav people gathered at Hôtel du Cap-Eden-Roc for the de GRISOGONO event.
However what jumped out at me was obviously the fashion… unlike most of the events this 2014 Cannes Film Festival where we have seen an array of rainbow colors, everybody who is anybody seemed to be rocking the classic and chic white/black palette. Was there a secret decision on the matter?
Whatever the deal while the super models partied with the Hollywood stars they all looked stunning doing so… uch!
