By Niya

So I'm obsessed with bracelets and bangles at the mo. The more jewellery the better I say. Jewellery brand By Niya jewellery is my new obsession.

Using mesh tubing and an eclectic selection of loose precisely cut crystals including vintage Swarovski and Czech glass. It looks high end and luxe. I wear the necklaces as bracelets -  it looks like sparkling crystal rope.

Prices start from £60.

Isabel Murant Wedge Trainers

Wedge trainers are everywhere at the mo, worn by the likes of Beyonce in 'Love on top' video.

I decided I need to get myself a pair - but the Isabel Murant versions aren't exactly in my price range.

So I popped along to and got these wonders for only £39.99! A ridiculously good copy!

Marc Jacobs and Louis Vuitton Exhibition

In my recent trip to Paris I got to visit the Les Arts Décoratifs which held the Marc Jacobs and Louis Vuitton Exhibition. It paid tribute to Vuitton's career as a trunkmaker and eventual path into dressmaking. Then fast forward to the 90s - when Marc Jacobs headed up the designed team and the massive fashion house. Punchy colours, prints, textures - the exhibit was anything but boring - fascinating mannequins made out of leather, mechanical legs and lime green affros, obvsies!

Excuse the photo quality - I wasn't blessed with the best camera.

Sugar StripEase

Oh gawwwd - the sun is out - my legs need to be out of my comforting black tights. HELP ME NOW.

Hurrah for Sugar Strip Ease - this pain free sugaring system is ridiculously pain free. I was in shock when it genuinely didn't hurt. Plus the sugary consistency is really easy to take off with soap and water

Definitely a 10 out of 10 from me!!

So all the pics have been invading the papers and online - Cheryl Cole's dip dye being the most recent.

What are your thoughts on the Celebs below?

Cheryl graced the red carpet in Stéphane Rolland Haute Couture

Lily Cole's dress isn't exactly my cup of tea, but love the wedges - and she looked graceful in the rain. 

Diane Kruger and Joshua Jackson actually kill me! Alas they are so beautiful - Diane shines in this Vivienne Westwood Couture dress. 

Eva Longaria wowed in this amazing Marchesa creation. 

The winner for me though - Jane Fonda - graceful and elegant. Please let me look like that at 74.

Sheer Cover Base Perfector

Sheer Cover's Base Perfector is just what I need right now. As it says on the pack, it smoothes imperfections, minimizes the pores and fine lines - brill. All the things a girl could wants right?

With a silky consistency and light effect this base primer is great to help your make-up stay on for longer.

H&M for Water

H&M is launching H&M for Water, a collection of Hawaiian-inspired resort wear pieces for all the family from which 25% of sales will be donated to WaterAid, helping to provide clean water and sanitation in some of the world’s poorest areas.

The sun-soaked collection captures the ease of the Hawaiian lifestyle, with dresses and skirts for women in a palm print, alongside bandeau tops and matching skirts in a nostalgic floral print. There’s also retro swimwear and a whole range of accessories such as a see-through beach bag and bandanas.

The palm-print shirt for men is a summer essential, combined with printed shorts, sunglasses and sandals. For children there are tops with matching skirts for girls, and shirts and shorts for boys, all in the same prints as for the grown-ups. The H&M for Water collection contains garments made of organic cotton and other more sustainable materials, and will be sold from 31st May online and in around 200 stores worldwide.
