Winter Jumpers & Christmassy Nails

So while doing my Christmas shopping this year during the cold snap we had a few weeks ago, I may or may not have bought myself a few treats too...


pink jumper - Primark

cream jumper - Primark

Peace earrings - New Look
Collar necklace - Primark

pink stone ring - Primark
gold spike necklace - Primark
(l - r) Jo Is In The House Nail Polish - H&M
SLE 2012 - Barry M
Snowflakes - Models Own
Red Glitter - Barry M
Stick on Gems - Primark
I was in serious need of comfy, warm jumpers, and not so much the other bits!! But I am loving all the Christmassy nail varnishes and will definitely be rocking festive nails over the coming weeks until Christmas Day! I'm thinking of experimenting with the holographic glitter polish from H&M and the Primark gems for an OTT New Years nail look...
Have you picked up any bits for yourself while shopping for others? We're all guilty of this! (I hope!!)

No 7 Stay Perfect Nail Colour

Just a mini blog post to say - HOW Christmassy and fab is this nail colour! I love it!

This is a nail polish by No 7, its called Salsa and it is a deep red, with a kind of metallic finish. I wore this while putting up my Christmas tree this weekend and felt super Christmassy!!

Have you put your tree up yet? Are you excited for Christmas?

Victoria's Secret Show 2012

So as I am sure most people are aware, the annual Victoria's Secret Fashion Show aired last night.

I just wanted to share a few of my favourite looks of the evening - and as every blog, news station and VS fangirl is covering the blonde, blue eyed lovelies Karlie Kloss, Cara Delevigne, Candice Swanopoel, etc etc, I want to really big up the three women of colour represented in the show - the three fantastic Js... Jourdan Dunn, Joan Smalls, and Jasmine Tookes.

Here is Jourdan Dunn's look:

She even bucked the trend of a cutesy blown kiss or a wink at the end of the catwalk and actually DID THE ROBOT. I loved it!
Joan Smalls <3
Jasmine Tookes
It is shameful how many pages of Google I had to scroll through to reach these. Says a lot...
Anyway! Here are a few of my other favourite looks of the night!
Izabel Goulart

Jacqueline Jablonski
Alessandra Ambrosio
Doutzen Kroes
Barbara Pialho
And.... Barbara Palvin!

UrbanFit Fashion Show

Earlier this month I joined forces with a group called UrbanFit to help them coordinate and put on a fashion show fundraiser. UrbanFit is a fitness group put together by Emma Martinez-Lamkowski and Kate Woolgrove, taking place in Easton and St Pauls to help girls from the area with their fitness, confidence, and helping them to mix and make new friends. As well as working on fitness and body image, the girls receive sessions learning things like self defence, design, and now, event planning and modelling!

The show took place at the event suite on the top floor of Bristol's M Shed, featuring clothes kindly lent to the group by St Peters Hospice, American Apparel, Blue Banana, and Cox & Baloney. I worked in a kind of dresser/backstage coordinator/all round peace keeper capacity, and the day, although super hectic and busy, went so brilliantly and a fantastic time was had by each and every one of the girls!

Here are some photos I managed to snap on the iPad throughout the day - everyone looked so fab!!

The calm before the storm... organising the rails and rails of clothes before the girls got there and chaos began!
The venue before... Erin walking the catwalk to test the length
The group's only boy, the fantastic Kieran - he went to get his hair done with a full Afro and returned like this!!
MUCH later that day... some of the group ready in their first looks.

The venue dressed, lit and ready to go!
Final Flash mob practice
And some of my favourite looks....
Dress - St Peter's Hospice, shoes - Model's Own
Body and Trousers - American Apparel
Whole outfit - Biba at House of Fraser
Dress and petticoat - Cox and Baloney
Dress and clutch - Biba at House of Fraser
Many thanks to UrbanFit for having me, M Shed for hosting us, Blue Banana, Cox & Baloney, American Apparel, House of Fraser and St Peter's Hospice for the clothes, Dior for the make up and Duke and Scarlet for the hair!
