Tuesday's Girl Crush...

T4 presenter Jameela Jamil is one of my favourite presenters, she's hilariously fun, sexy and cool making my hangover T4 Sundays bearable! Jameela also has a column in Company magazine and I love how honest and open she is about her past trials and tribulations such as bullying, weight loss, and teaching days before she became a presenter.

She is also one of my style inspirations as she knows how to work her gorgeous giraffe legs in a bandage dress, always use her make-up must have eye-liner, and show everyone that she's a style crusader to be reckoned with!

Jameela Jamil...I salute you xxx

Candy Girl

Pink hair....Absolutely gorgeous

I'm Gunna Marry The Night...

This has to be my favourite video of 2012...

I don't know what it is about this song, but it's one of the few this year that I have really related to in terms of living, breathing, sleeping a dream, and having that one passion and not stopping until you achieve it...

Lady G touches on creating her own beautiful memories as opposed to the harsh reality of her struggle to succeed, and I for one know how much of struggle it takes to live your dream. But enough of the philosophical mumbo jumbo the fashion and choreography is AMAZE this song has me shimmying, hair flicking, singing into my hairbrush in the mirror or getting ready for a night out for sure because lets be real this is like something out of fame right now! But please note that I do not agree with the waste of Cheerios that has taken place in this video...

Dear Santa...

In order of apperance: Faux-fur Parka coat: Topshop. The Hills DVD Boxset 1-6. OPI Nail Polish:Lilac. It's A Shore Thing: Snooki. Onsie Pyjamas: Topshop. Nikon SLR Camera. Jeffrey Campbell: Lita. Dior: Cherie.

Dear Santa....

Pretty self-explanatory right? I know it's a lot...and I don't expect to receive all of it, but this is my current wish list. If I had to put them in order of importance, the Nikon camera would DEFINITELY be first, as my Blackberry camera just isn't cutting it as stunning photography for my blog, the Topshop faux-fur parka worn by the gorgeous Alexa Chung, and last not least Jeffrey Campbell Lita's which I have craved and lusted over for many years now even in my previous post here but still do not own!
Also just in case your wondering Snooki aka Nicole Polizzi is my guilty pleasure from the hit TV series Jersey Shore, and knowing that she has brought out a fictional book on life at the Jersey Shore, this will be a great laugh and fun book to read over cosy nights in over Christmas time!

I finish for Xmas with Esquire soon, and I can't wait to get home as I miss my family and dog Maximus so so much! And of course to finally tick off some of these items off my wish list ;-)


Paige Denim Launch

Lacy body: Primark. Chiffon maxi skirt: Zara. Faux-fur leopard coat: Topshop. Earrings: Urban Outfitters.

It was a very wet, rainy day in London town, but I wasn't going to let it dampen my spirits after work as I headed straight off to the Paige Denim S/S12 launch at 59 Great Marlborough street on Thursday.
The venue was in a gorgeous penthouse on the rooftop with marquees, cocktails, mini hotdogs and mulled Cider!
DJ Alice Gold was on the decks giving a mixture of 80s and 90s soul, combined with a lovely overview of the city of London :)
Owner and creator Paige Adams-Geller was there herself promoting her new spring/summer 2012 line, and the collection was definitely bright and fun with pastel blues, yellows, and greens to brighten up your wardrobe, with the likes of Reese Witherspoon, Blake Lively, Gwen Stefani and Kate Moss just to name a few celebrities seen snapped in her creation under her belt!
Me personally I've never been a jean lover, but I do believe you that one pair of jeans that will take you through season to season and is your 'go to' staple piece for any dressy/casual outfit, and Paige Denim most definitely fits the mark with its fine detail, sex appeal, contoured waistband!

Wednesday's Girl Crush-DJ Yasmin

DJ/Singer/Songwriter- Yasmin Shahmir is by far one of my favourite style queens, inspiration and overall one HOT CAKE. Her sexy urban-chic style has me mesmorised everytime I see her....
Catch her beautiful new video for 'Light Up (The World) set in the gorgeous destination of Cuba here;

Seeing Stars...

Star Embroidered Midi Dress: Topshop £65

Dolce and Gabbana have most definitely inspired the high street as Topshop have now brought out this stunning star-printed number in stores this week...
This dress left me starry-eyed when I first saw it in Topshop on Monday, I grabbed it straight away and power walked to the till!

This item is perfect for the party season, bringing a cool, relaxed party look to the dancefloor, but for me personally, I plan to rock this star dress casually with some ankle boot platforms and black opaque tights for a chic everyday look and of course a hint of that designer Dolce vibe!

Love Coco

It's The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year...

Fairisle Knit Blazer Jacket: Junya Watanabe. Fairisle Knit Jumper: Gant

These were my favourite handpicked items from the Christmas shoot with Douglas Booth in this months issue of Esquire magazine.

This shoot was so much fun to prepare for, it was set in a derelict location in the forest, with none other than reindeers and snow! I got so excited, it really did get me into the Christmas spirit :)

I called in a range of designers from Paul Smith, Gant, Hackett, Levis, My Wardrobe, Asos, and Louis Vuitton for this shoot, but these items are most definitely my favourite and really caught my eye with the fairisle detail, and thick knit material. It was just perfect for walking in a Winter Wonderland!

Sunday Girl For Firetrap Launch Party

I just want to say a big thank you to Firetrap for inviting me to the Sunday Girl For Firetrap Launch at 33 Portland place a few weeks ago.

I was informed the venue was in fact where they shot The King's Speech! The event was absolutely phenomenal, with Mahiki coconut cocktails (literally) flowing, Pizza Express, Pink Berry frozen yoghurt and a stunning performance from Jade williams (Sunday Girl) herself!

Laura whitmore couldn't get enough of my headband which in he-insight looks like devil ears, and I congratulated her on her new job co-hosting I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here.
I also greeted Chloe Simms as I've met her a couple times now, as in my previous job we hosted an FHM event and we invited her.

Professor Green I'm still a bit undecided about...lets just say he doesn't have the warmest personality!
All in all it was a fantastic night, and the fashion was amazing, we spotted a familiar face wearing the faux-fur fox scarf and I crowned him my best-dressed male of the night!

Check out some other celebs that stopped by that night in my first picture and here are the highlights from the night :) x
