Prom Season – My Pick of Dresses

I know all too well that it is coming up to Prom season, as I was in that position this time last year. Although those about to have their prom will have probably picked out their dresses by now, I decided to do this feature for those who have a special occasion coming up or simply love dresses! To my own prom last year, I wore a dress by ‘Lipsy’ because they were so easy to wear and there was such a variety to choose from. I loved my dress for prom, however I think next time (next year) I…

Just how expensive is life for our generation?

I’m at the age whereby I’m learning to drive, thinking about universities and possible career choices as well as considering future finances. So curiosity got the better of me and I decided to work out where I’m headed. Learning to drive is optional of course for students, but considering the price of buses and trains in London (I live 20 miles from London and it’s around £24 for me to get a train ticket unless you spend another £20 on a separate train student saver card) it is handy to be able to get yourself from A to B independently.…

For many years now, the 9pm watershed has protected young eyes from seeing scenes of sexual content, ‘foul language’ and scenes of a violent nature however TV companies are now in talks about making the watershed stricter as regulator OFCOM regularly receives complaints about television programmes that are too explicit. Programmes such as the X Factor regularly show raunchy performances, BGT has recently had a Britney lookalike strip down to a thong and programmes like Eastenders often show violent scenes. In many other countries the watershed is notably later than in Britain, perhaps judgemental of ‘minors’ bedtimes. In Austria and…

What I'm wearing today – Lou Makes Necklace.

I absolutely love jewellery and own a lot of it, however I prefer having something a little bit different and unusual now and then alongside your typical ‘new look’ jewellery. So when I came across ‘Lou makes’ jewellery I couldn’t resist taking a look! I ordered the ‘dapper gent necklace’ which is a really pretty bow-tie silver necklace that is really light weight to wear and always receives great comments due to its uniqueness. I couldn’t believe it when I looked at the website and it was only £5.50! I think it looks really pretty and due to its colour…

What I’m wearing today – DP Lace Dress

As I am blogging more about fashion, I thought I would do a feature today about what I’m wearing (and why). Today, I’m wearing one of my favourite dresses that I have had a while now and bought in the sale at Dorothy Perkins, but still love it. The featured photograph shows me wearing the dress at the BBC television centre and I am with Joe Calzaghe (who was on Strictly Come Dancing) the photo was taken about 5 months ago, but I’m wearing the dress today so thought I may as well stick the feature up. What do you…
