A hog roast / copious amounts of caffeine / dogs / crazy hair / copious amounts of caffeine

So I’m off on holiday! It may only be for 3 days but I’m planning to rock the beach and bar with some of my new finds!
Asos.com tends to be my first port of call – mainly as its bargainalicious and with this whole working in fashion malarkey you need to be stringent with the old pennies.
So I’ve found this amaze jumpsuit! Only £40 – and go with some beautiful tan wedges that are currently £22.50 as they are in the sale!
Now since I feel like a total tight-wad I’ve invested in a key piece of jewellery from

A whole new wardrobe consisting of black is needed (You see I work in the wonderous world of PR where you must 'blend in' at fashion shows - as not to show up all the other fashionistas out there!)
So where to start? New shoes thank you very much! However, LFW consists of standing/running around like a lunatic for hours on end. How will I ever find shoes that are chic and yet practical??
Here's the best bit - some lovely beauties from Ash.
A mere £55 reduced from £150 - thanks to the wonderful Cocosa.com
Not only will the wedge make the hours of standing bearable, but they will also go wonderfully with my new Hareem pants!
This has been a gooood shopping month! :-)

Unfortunately I am not blessed with Elle McPherson legs and peachy svelte bum – am the opposite, a pear shape, with 'child bearing' hips! So the thought of making my bum look even bigger is not so appealing.
So in a bid to get the perfect pair of hareems, I headed to Topshop (the meccah of the high street, or so I thought!) Faced with a selection of not so flattering cotton based hareems (you need a jersey for sure in this instance!!) clinging to all my lumps and bumps – not a fan!
So thinking, budget – New Look called me. Well budget it definitely was, a jumpsuit with a removable floral broach, 'oh no!' I hear you cry. I left New Look rapidly.
So I turned to River Island – the chav turned chic store in my opinion.
I remember the days when River Island was emblazoned on every item of clothing, as though you're proud to say 'look my bag is from River Island, the oh so exclusive shop!' Yeah, not so much!
But it has moved on – with copious amounts of trend led pieces, lace blazers, billowy blouses, military jackets – and of course Hareem pants!
So I turned my eye to several pairs.
Following the print trend, I love these animal print trousers, at £34.99 a pop not so bad!

A few of my faves
Peter Pilotto's prints are to die for - as is the price tag, a mere £795.... maybe i should continue with the high street!
I can't get enough of summer maxis, even though i seem to own them in every size, shape and colour! Topshop's maxi scream summer garden party and costs a mere £35 - bring on the Pimms.
Love a bit of culotte action, even if it does remind me of the Brownies! L.O.V.E these ones from asos! and only £25!! Officially amaze!
Best Behaviour http://www.bestbehavior.dk - This Danish brand has got some great, eccentric pieces! These trousers being my fave -
So I cannot wait to rock a few of these looks, I already have my snakeprint hareem pants - but its defo time for some skull prints, a bit of floral and of course the trusted leopard print to finish off my summer wardrobe!

Now here’s how to do the American flag.

Bad that I'm not obsessing over the page like I should be, but I've been busy with a brand new job in the old PR world.
But something made me remember this wonderful page - a little gift in the post (it was my birthday on Monday so I'm considering it a gift!) A Lipstick ring – sounds like a horrible concept and something you might have got free with Sugar magazine many years back. But this little ring from Arbonne is simply amaze!!
This chunky ring with pearl detail is something I will most definitely be wearing out on the town. With a handy mirror and rose coloured lipstick enclosed it is officially my new favourite thing!

So why oh why did Katy Perry dress like a Barbie circa 1987? (spot the difference below)
Alexa Chung, looks more vampire/bull fighter – but then again, when was the last time Alexa actually pulled off a look. All I can ever think when looking at her is 'eat a frickin sandwich!'
Ok, so i'm in a bad mood, hence the insults, but finally this ghastly look is just wrong in so many ways. Kristin Stewart is wearing a beaded curtain around her waist!? What has happened to the elegance of a simply cut ball gown?
So who got it right?
Blake Lively – wow wow wow. She is stunning Marchesa, and manages to look classy even though it is a slutty hemline. Shame about the shoes (yes I couldn't be that nice!)
Emma Watson – She has come along way from the old HP years. Elegant Burberry dress, check. Ever so trendy designer on arm, check. Succeeded in making me very jealous, check.
Kate Hudson – Sunkissed tan and a killer leg on show, Kate shines in this Stella McCartney number.
Overall, I'm not so impressed with the selection by the celebs.
I mean come on Mary J – did you pop into Debenhams on your way to the ball?

These temporary tattoos already have a wide celebrity fan base including Lily Allen, Daisy Lowe and Sarah Jessica Parker. SJP was spotted wearing a Chanel tattoo as an accessory to her Oscar outfit.
Inkwear provides fashionable temporary tattoo jewellery in a vibrant range of colours, designs and sizes.

Bring on wellies, not washing and general lack of social decorum.
As for the clothes - even better - every girl at a festival seems to be rocking a look, even if you are just standing in a field covered in mud and other varieties of beer and cider.
Now as much as i hate to admit, there is one celeb who manages to get festival dressing right - the not so lovely Sarah Harding - i'm loving her effortlessly cool look here.
Get the t-shirt from any Topshop, lets be honest its quite generic.
Or be a little different and get this great cropped number from Brat and Suzie - only £22
Available online at www.bratandsuzie.com or in selected boutiques nationwide
Rock a pair of levi vintage denim shorts, and throw on some limited edition hunters (£145 from hunter-boot.co.uk) to finish it off!
I on the other hand am praying for non welly wearing summer!
Let the fun commence!!

This spring H&M has a women’s collection of floral and feminine fashion in sustainable materials, called The Garden Collection by H&M.
Pieces from the collection are in stores now and the entire collection will be available by the 25th March.
I love the floral sheer blouse, teamed with these fab cream shorts. It just makes me want to dress for summer, but I’m not going to be some crazy person dressed in flip flops just yet! What is it with Brits and the summer weather!? I saw someone wearing flip flops in the rain yesterday?

So its 2010 and women continue to be the talking point of the headlines, whether it be Cheryl Cole rise and Ashley Cole’s fall – or Michelle Obama’s amazing support of Barack Obama’s rise to presidencency.
Now Red magazine has revealed the 20 most influential women who will be setting to shape our futures. Rising stars from industries across theatre, politics, media, business, the environment, food, technology, fashion, the voluntary sector and social enterprise have been selected.
These include, Chloe Smith , the youngest MP in the House of Commons and the Tories’ secret weapon’, Gemma Tuley, Susie Bubble from Stylebubble.com, and actress Sheridan Smith (28), the star of West End. Their achievements to date have been remarkable, with one woman awarded an MBE and all of them paving the way for other young aspiring female professionals.
According to Sam Baker, “These women are an inspiration to us all,” with leading figures across the industry speaking out to agree with this accolade.
However my favourite choice is the wonderful Louise Goldin, described as ‘Fashion Power House’. Her edgy and yet girly designs have brought her to the forefront of British designers, really outshining the others and my most favourite thing – that she has brought out a range of shoes for Topshop. (shoes pictured £110 topshop.com) Affordable chic!
What’s not to love!
For more details on these inspirational woman pick up April’s issue of Red Magazine.
