London Fashion Weekend Virginity

I lost it!  Woo hoo.

As a keen follower of all things fashion, it has always been a dream to attend Fashion week and this year I did.  I woke up in the morning stressing about what I should wear (usually I’d plan an outfit before hand but for some reason I didn’t and was heavily relying on my fashion instincts to choose me an outfit).  Make-up was applied in 20 minutes and then I decided to paint my nails in my favourite charcoal OPI nail varnish ‘Suzi Skis in the Pyrenees’.  I  don’t know why I decided to paint my nails before I got dressed but of course today was the day it would take my nails an age to dry, so my mum ended up getting me dressed- you can always rely on mum to save the day!

 

I spent the hole day getting lost in the pop up shops whilst keeping hydrated with a delicious champagne and elderflower drink… (okay drinks).  The pop up shops included Pringle (who were the main sponsors of the show), Toni and Guy, Maybeline, Marcus Lupfer and many more.

 

Later on in the day I took my seat at the catwalk which featured the upcoming trends.  Suede, flares, metallic’s and good old monochrome made is appearance on the models that strutted their stuff on the catwalk.

 

I kept my outfit for LFW pretty simple.  My trusty black leather trousers and black polo-neck (both from Zara) made an appearance which I teamed with my fab new black studded Zara boots which are very Christian Louboutin esq as well as a royal blue waistcoat, also from Zara- I don’t tend to stray too far!

Fifty Shades of Amazing

This year I spent Single Awareness day aka Valentines Day with my besties in Bournemouth.  We spent the weekend drinking, eating and laughing.  We also of course were being predictable and watched the new ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ film!  The weekend started off with strawberries, chocolate, cream and pancakes at Sprinkles Gelato restaurant- pure finger lickin’ goodness!

I like to dress to every occasion, and Valentines Day was no excuse.  I wore my ‘I don’t need a Valentine I need Valentino’ jumper for the Fifty Shades of Grey film #girlpower.

I read all 3 of the Fifty Shades books back in 2011 so was very excited to see the books come to life on the big screen.  Before watching the film I read some of the reviews and the movie had got mixed write-ups.  Well my review is that it is AMAZING.  The movie was everything I wanted it to be and more.  I now have huge JDP (Jamie Dornan Panic), he is so sexy in the film it is untrue  His body is so amazing that my face probably went 50 shades of red (thank god the cinema is dark).  Dakota Johnson played the role of submissive Annastasia Steele fantastically.  The film was raunchy and sexy but also had a very endearing and complex love story which drew your intention in and made you really invest in Christian and Anna’s relationship.

The ending of the movie was amazing and leaves you wanting more.  I’ve never come out of a movie theatre before and said “I want to go and see it again tomorrow.”

Roll on Fifty Shades Darker!
