Everybody has mental health.

Physical health. You have it, right? Yeah, me too. In fact I don't think I've ever met anybody who denies they have it. It just exists in all of us... Sometimes we're in good health, sometimes our health worsens, sometimes we take steps to restore our health to a happy medium.

Mental health, though... "Oh no, I've never been depressed. I don't have mental health". But its exactly the same. Look at those two words... MENTAL HEALTH. Not mental ill health, not poor mental health, not mental illness. Just simply, your level of wellbeing. The health of your brain, mind, emotions, stress levels, mood, sleep levels, happiness levels, contentment, your state of wellbeing... we all have it.

Please stop denying you have it or getting it confused with mental ill health, because mental health exists in all of us regardless. And recognising that can lead to a whole host of great things... Firstly, people who are experiencing mental ill health or distressing and debili…

Candyfloss Obsession...

Image
So I spend a lot of time on Instagram & Tumblr, and I am a self-confessed addict when it comes to pictures of pastel coloured hair!

Then you add into the mix the unicorn and mermaid obsession that dominates beauty companies and brands such as Wildfox, Tarte, Missguided and many more... and this only adds fuel to the fire for pastel hair inspo on instagram!





The originals in stand out pastel do's has to be BLEACH London, who run a hip salon in the capital, and regularly churn out candyfloss hair! Good news: they now have an affordable Superdrug range so that you can recreate their looks at home.


The final straw for me, is Christina Aguilera's new video for her song 'Your Body', where she debuts a range of pink hair & make up looks that I am in love with! I was literally pausing the video at every look... she SLAYS!


Bring on summer festivals, and some semi-permanent pink because I wanna join the candy-floss club!

A little spell of spring sunshine, and I am getting SO excited for summer....And one of my favourite accessories for summer is beautiful headwear!

Today I am sharing two beautiful sites, with some gorgeous items...

First up, Lullabellz, which has the hugest product range of hair accessories you could imagine.

My Bollywood obsession is real, and the beautiful 'amienettes' and of course the bindis, were giving me full Aishwarya Rai vibes. The jewelled headbands are so intricate and beautiful.

I'm sharing with you some of my favourites, though it is so hard to pick...they start from £18 and go up to about £50. These would be so lovely for a summer outfit, for a festival, or even to add something special to a smart occasion!

Austrian Crystal Chunky Silver Headpiece

Gogo Philip

Image
GOGO PHILIP Vintage Bijoux is an exciting name on the jewellery scene right now, and it rightly has prime position in Oxford Street Topshop and online at ASOS. The business, which is the brainchild of an Italian banker Georgi (Gogo) Philip Pekinov, combines vintage detailing with tribal elements and chunky chains.

Gogo Philip jewellery is full of attitude, and mixes up textures with playful quirks- and all under £40!
Have a look at the ad campaign & some of my favourite pieces!






And here are some of my favourite pieces, though it was sooo hard to pick!


 You probably already know how much I love turqouise from my Vamoose blog post, but I loveee the combination of the Sphinx head on the stone, so unique!


 This is kind of the classic Gogo Philip piece, and what originally got me loving the brand, as I love a classic heavy chain.


 Gorgeous vintage style!


These are slightly more unusual, but I love the block shapes, and the imagery- so fierce!

Aztec Nail Tutorial with Polly!

Image
I am SO excited to featuring my good friend Polly on my blog...this girl is a nail genius!
She constantly transforms her own nails into little works of art, and does it all herself at home. When I asked her to come and share her talents, she immediately whipped up this gem of a tutorial on Aztec nails!

The nails are so gorgeous, and it's so exciting to have this original tutorial on my blog...I hope she comes again soon! So here goes, over to Polly...

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hi, I'm Polly and I love doing my nails. That's all you really need to know about me, well I also love pink, glitter, fashion, Beyonce, clothes, bags and dancing (in that order). I always paint my nails when there is something more important to do, mostly work, so it has become my favourite thing to do. Hopefully this will be the first of many nail tutorials that you will see from me so hopefully you will a…

Cambridge Satchel Company

Image
I was very lucky to get a bright pink satchel from the Cambridge Satchel Company for Christmas, and wanted to share this amazing brand on my blog!






The satchels are so eye catching; they keep the traditional shapes, but use bright colours, metallics and fluoro  to bring the satchels bang up to date. They are playful and fierce, but still qualify as an investment buy because lets face it, when have satchels ever gone out of style!

These satchels are so versatile, as they classically fit a preppy, androgynous vibe, but the candy colours, and glamorous metallics give a girly twist- transforming a classic staple into a show stopper!







 I love these primary colour satchels, but the metallic gold at the top is my favourite (after mine!), and I love the more casual shape of the top two satchels, really nice for a more comfortable, slouchy weekend look.

The satchels start at £74 for a classic in the smallest size and range upwards from there.

Alice Vandy

I have been so excited about the thought of featuring Alice Vandy on my blog... I've followed and obsessed over her designs for ages!

She creates clothes that are show-stopping and fierce; they wouldn't look out of place on Gaga! Her signature items are playsuits and leggings, which she sells online in crazy prints... I am IN LOVE with the playsuits, particularly the Golden Leopard Bodysuit, and the Swarowski Crystalled Black Bodysuit which has a swooping V, crystalled shoulders and long sleeves (both pictured below.) I need them in my life!



Prices start from about £74.99 for a bodysuit, and £45 for leggings, and they range from there.


Alice Vandy pieces are undoubtedly stand-out investment pieces. In my opinion, they are worth every penny as they're beautifully made, unique designs, and so different to anything from the highstreet.

It's so exciting to have some upcoming design talent from Cornwall, and I think Alice is going to be huuuuge news!!




Alice is also a part t…
