Canary Wharf Fashion Shows

So I work in Canary Wharf doing the day and starting today all through the weekend they are having up to 25% discount across a lot of the shops. I like Canary Wharf for shopping as it is not as crammed as Oxford Street, I think and less annoying tourists who just want to block your path. Most of the shops are in the 20% discount bracket including Aquascutum, Aspinal of London, French Connection, Warehouse, LK Bennett, Gant and Karen Millen. There are different discounts in different shops so please check before you go. For a little preview, here are the fashion shows which are taking place over the weekend showcasing the hottest summer looks.

By Larin shoes - Customize your shoe

Now by now, you know I am a shoe addict so I am always on the lookout for my next pair of shoes. Ladies, I found them. By Larin is a Spanish brand, with a slight twist. The shoes have a unique feature as there is a magnetic button on the shoe meaning you can change the ornament on the front of the shoe to match your outfit and event. Perhaps you are at work and want to tone it down so you add a small ornament. For a night on the town, change the ornament to a sparkly number. So here are a few of heels from the current range.

Amazing heels from Lollipops

I recently came across a French label, Lollipops, who do the most amazing shoes and jewellery. I went to a store launch in Spitalfields, London and some items blew me away. Thank god I had no money in my account as I would have spent every last penny in that shop. Lollipops have bags, clothes, shoes, jewellery and more. The pieces are girly and with a quirky factor that is adorable. They have been around for 10 years so not quite sure how I missed them but I am so happy I have discovered them.
 How do you not love these heels, hmmm?

Nobody Jeans

For many ladies, the quest for decent jeans is never-ending. Some do not fit right, others are not the right colour. Well I have come across a brand that you may well like. Nobody is an Australian jeans label who love, love, love their denim. They have been around since 1999 and source some of the best possible fabric from Japan, US and Europe. Having felt some of the jeans, I fell in love with the quality. What makes Nobody different is you can customise your choice for you. Like a certain fit but want it in a certain colour. No problem!

 This is the Cult Skinny fit. Cult is their high-waisted type of jeans and sucks everything in.

Warehouse collaborate with Brat & Suzie

I love a good collaboration and the latest one is Warehouse and Brat & Suzie. Warehouse is a staple shop for me so I am super excited about this. Brat & Suzie have exclusively designed some tshirts in various fits and cute animal designs. The designs are intricate with lots of quirky detail and include a bespectacled squirrel in a turquoise colour which is perfect for spring and my personal favourite.


Join me on Pinterest

Pinterest seems to be the word on everyone lips right now. I have found it to be one of the most addictive and inspiring new social networks. Essentially, it is place to create 'board' or a collection of your favourite pictures. How many times have you seen a makeup look or a hairdo that you want to remember or tell others about because it is THAT stunning? I have created 3 boards so far which are quickly filling up with some hairdos and outfits that I have to try. I have seen variations on the fish braid that I would never have come up with by myself. I have also just seen a look that has given me a way to use a product I was never going to use but it is going to look amazing.
So if you see a picture you like on the internet you can pin it to Pinterest. For bloggers, it is a very powerful tool as I can pin pictures from press days that do not make it on the blog, outtakes if you like. I see so many gorgeous pieces that I want to share but just do not have the time to post something about it. So this is perfect for me. You can 'follow' your favourite pinners for a constant stream of inspiring piccies and repin pictures to share to your followers.
Well I hope you like my boards or moodboards as I like to call them. You can follow me and see all the pictures by clicking Tell me what you think or is there you want to see?

Radical Skincare Launches in UK

Radical Skincare is a brand that has been around in the US for a while and now it is coming to the UK. People in the US rave about this so I was very interested to try it. It the brainchild of sisters, Liz and RachelEdlich who have worked in the skincare industry for years. Liz started to see some ageing effects and found nothing on the market that gave her the results she wanted so Radical Skincare was born.

Happy 1st Birthday!!

One year ago I published my first article and The Glamorous was born. I can't believe it has been a year already. Time flies when you are having fun. I have learnt so much over the past year, met so many interesting people and came across brands that I have fallen in love with. It has been hard work maintaining the blog but it is well worth it.

One of the highlights for me was meeting Flavia Cacace and winning an E>One. That night was amazing and I had so much fun. The E>One has been a dream to use and you know what, it actually works. The E>One is one the best at-home Laser Hair Removal machines so right now I am semi hairless on legs and armpits and very soon hair free forever! (although I need to get more gel to finish the treatment). Me and Flavia, wow I am really short...

Another highlight was seeing Emeli Sande perform at a spectacular press event. She is simply incredible and took my breath away.

NOTD: Topshop Dead Ringer Polish

I have not done a Nails of the Day for a while so I thouught I would show you one of the new spring colours from Topshop.

This colour is called Dead Ringer and is pinky, red colour. If you want something so quite so bright as red this is good compromise. I have received a few compliments when I have worn it. It has quickly become one of my go-to colours for spring. My other colours are definitely starting to feel neglected.

It glides on really well for a glossy look and I used two coats for this. It started to chip after about 3 days. So there you have it. What do you think of the colour?

Stylistpick Popup Shop

I am a huge fan of Stylistpick so when they opened their popup shop, I was literally first in line. I popped down on the very first day it opened and bagged myself a gorgeous pair of heels from the Louise Roe collection. I had been eyeing it up since the new collection was announced so this was my chance to get my mitts on them.
Here's Louise doing a much better job...
