Lohan Moves In

Hi Fashion Friends!
So apparently, Lindsay Lohan, is out of rehab, has done an Oprah interview, partied with The Wanted, and is now moving to The Big Apple. Phew… its been a busy few weeks!
And according to this article she has moved in round the corner. Her sister, Aliana, was spotted helping her move in.
Perhaps Lindsay, is vying for an invite to Wintour Towers and a post rehab, Vogue cover, to boot. She should get some tips from Kanye and Kim, who have reportedly been round for tea before.
Well only time will tell. Watch out for more  gossip from New York’s most fashion forward street very soon.

Kanye makes a follow-up appearance…with some famous friends in tow…

Hi Fashion Friends

A quick update on my latest indulgent celeb spotting in my NYC ‘hood.

So, it seems Kanye can’t keep away. I mentioned in a previous post that he, along with his beau, and mother of his week old baby, Kim Kardashian, were spotted in my street not so long ago.

houstonWell, a couple of Saturdays ago (sorry for the slightly tardy post, it has been a fashion filled few weeks!) the tuxedo’d hunk and I were walking home from a delicious super at Cocette in Soho. As we were approaching our street, I looked up and spotted Jay-Z getting out of a car. I have to admit I had indulged in a glass of vino with dinner so I snatched a double take just to be sure, but I knew my uber accurate celebrity radar hadn’t let me down.

The Empire State star was swiftly followed by a very petite Beyonce who looked stunning in a cool black and white striped skirt and top, displaying her very toned tum.

A small crowd quickly gathered as they hurried into a ‘too cool for school’ Jamaican restaurant on the corner of our street.

The next morning, still basking in my celeb spotting glory, I scoured the gossip pages for proof of the previous night’s events and quickly discovered that the popular couple were heading into Kanye’s birthday party. Check out Beyonce’s outfit here.

Seems the world famous gold digger rap star likes this neck of the woods. Perhaps it will be the last time for a while, what with nappy changing duty and all.

5 Essential Beauty Tips For Yummy Mummies To Be

Are you, like our favorite Duchess, soon to be a yummy mummy? Take a look at our simple but heavenly top tips too help you bloom with style. 

We all know Kate Middleton is a few weeks away from her due date, and as always, there is a baby boom in celeb land with The Saturday’s Rochelle Wiseman, her band mate Frankie Sandford, Kim Kardashian, Coleen Rooney, Jessica Simpson (the list goes on.. and on…) announcing their pregnancies and due dates.

There’s no doubt that pregnancy takes its toll on your body. From the raging hormones to the morning sickness to the swollen ankles, with all this going on how do these celebrities get up and face the cameras every morning? I’m sure the answer is plenty of water, plenty of ginger biscuits (for the sickness, not the cravings) and very clever makeup!

BB Cream

Here are our top 5 products for surviving pregnancy in a dignified manner…

1)    Tinted Moisturiser. Instead of caking on foundation to make it appear like you have had a full 8 hours sleep, (instead of the 5 hours trying to get comfortable, and 30 minutes of sleep either side of the baby waking you up at 5.30 by playing drums on your bladder), use a fresh and sheer tinted moisturiser – will keep that dewy and awake look whilst hydrating your skin without clogging pores like a heavy foundation. Also great as a foundation replacement in hot weather. Try our Sleek Be Beautiful Blemish Balm (can be used as tinted moisturiser, primer OR concealer, available in 7 shades from light to dark, a steal at £8.99.

Botanics2)    Body Cream. Hormone changes during pregnancy can wreak havoc with your skin so a daily routine is essential. Also, lathering yourself in cream after a nice warm bath can be a fantastic way to relax before bed. So take the weight off your feet and use our Boots Botanics (totally organic – the power of plants) Purifying Body Soufflé, £4.99.


3)    Bright Lipstick. Every woman needs her shade, and a bright pink lipstick can draw attention away from those other blemishes to boost your confidence and make sure you are always ready for those pesky paparazzi (we wish). Maybelline The Satin Collection in 163 Fuchsia will suit almost every skin tone and cheap too at only £2.79.

dscn05224)    Mascara. There is nothing like opening and applying brand new mascara, and when is a better time to treat yourself? Instant glamour and fluttering your beautiful lashes is an immediate mood lifter. Our favourite is Rimmel Glam’Eyes in Midnight Black, and won’t break the bank at only £5.99.

5)    White Eyeliner. The benefits of using white eyeliner are numerous: it makes you look awake, refreshed and can also make your eyes look bigger. A great way to combat the ‘heavily made up look’ and to achieve a fresh faced, natural look is to line your upper lash line with a regular eyeliner, and line the lower lash line in white. Still dubious? Try it! L’Oreal Infallible Eyeliner Pencil in Sheer Fidelity, £4.99.

Plenty about those nine months isn’t all that fun! It is however the perfect time to indulge in some serious pampering.

Keeping up with Anna and Kim

Rumour has it that reality show guru, Kim Kardashian, has never been invited to the pinnacle fashion event of the showbiz calender – the Met Ball in New York City.

And the person who allegedly blacklisted her? Vogue Editor and fashion industry consort, Anna Wintour.


Well, until Monday night’s annual event.

Kim was on the arm of her boyfriend, Kanye West, in an unpalatable floral number, reminiscent of my great aunt’s curtains. It has been reported that Kim was allowed to go this year’s fashion parade because her music mystro beau and fashion insider fav, Kanye, was performing.

Apart from my serious guilty pleasure for showbiz goss, you may wonder why I am interested in this chitchat?

It just so happens that I live across the road from Miss Wintour in New York and Kimye were spotted in our street on Sunday. A day before this year’s uber glam punk themed event. They were reportedly on their merry way to dinner at the Wintour residence. I wonder who was buttering up who?

Perhaps Kim should have asked the Vogue queen for advice on which outfit to wear…or perhaps she did…

Check out the full story here and you may just be able to see me waving in the background!
