Bradley_151126_8020Through my work i’ve used many different types and makes of Lashes.  From high glam, advertizing, portraits and drag artists. Seems they never go out of fashion. Just think back in relation to Hollywood films with leading ladies like Clara Bow in the 20’s and Gene Harlow in the 30’s ( one of the first blonds in movies) they wore false lashes to accentuate their eyes on film to lure and engage the viewer.  Ardell invited me to celebrate 45 years at the Langham Hotel in central London with a glamorous event to show off the new Press On Lashes and natural styles. Certainly Oscar Winners.

The Little Black Dress & Avon’s Christmas make-up favourites 2015.

If you’re looking for glamourous affordable party dresses & make-up ideas for Christmas, then read on.  Party dresses from under £50 & make-up items from Avon to suit your budget easily for 2015.

The company Little Back Dress had bit of a bash recently at the Cafe Royal in one of the most beautiful rooms i have seen for a long time. It’s worth a visit with your friends if you get a chance to visit town before Christmas.   It was full of press, bloggers, pop stars and soap stars.  Typical of me to sit in the reserved spot and was quite quickly removed by a PR with a smile,  ( I know my place :)).

Real hands on fashion advice from Alicia/Kay helps to engage and develop your own fashion style.

CaptureAlicia and KayA quick update about the fabulous fashion duo Alicia and Kay. They invited me to visit one of their morning workshops at the Pestana Chelsea Bridge Hotel & Spa  and found the experience very helpful with lots of hands on friendly advice. These workshops help to reinforce, add and back up all the useful content online that clients individually subscribe too. I met some great women who’d really benefited from their service and couldnt wait to come back for another hands on future workshop.

Here’s the original post from the initial launch in February 2015.

Everyone suffers fashion disasters over the years.  It just gets complicated knowing what works for you at different phases of your life when there’s so much available in the shops and online.  A Government campaign   Love your clothes  have stated that there are an estimated £30 billion worth of clothing sitting in the backs of our wardrobes for over a year.  That’s just incredible to think that many people buy clothing in the wrong size, shape, style, and colour to add to already unworn clothing in their wardrobes. I find it completely shocking that we would want to waste our money and time in this way.

Recently I visited the Hoxton Hotel in Holborn to meet Alicia and Kay the founders of aliciakaystyle.com   who are absolutely passionate about utilizing clothing you currently own by finding key items within your budget to add to your wardrobe. The idea is to create a capsule collection for spring/summer and autumn/winter so eliminating any future dilemmas of what works for you in wearable clothing, footwear and accessories. It’s teaching simple styling techniques that really work for you personally and it totally makes sense and brings women together.

Click here aliciakaystyle to see where your nearest styling classes will be running and maybe you have what it takes to become a fashion stylist yourself.

“A Stylish Woman Makes Fashion Her Own.” says Alicia and Kay and I tend to agree. Fashion style is completely personal and wearing clothes you feel comfortable and confidant wearing is everything no matter where it’s from or what budget you spend.
