Pink Manolos x TONI&GUY | GLAMOUR Retro Curls Video

One of the most fun and exciting parts of collaborating with TONI&GUY that I've started trying different looks on my hair and using amazing products that make my hair look and smell magnificent. My latest project with TONI&GUY featured making a little how-to glamorous hair video for all my followers using their Extreme Volume Hot Rollers - which are incredible. I opted for a look that can be easily achieved and recreated: super glamorous retro curls, with lots of volume and bounce.

Watch the video above to see how to get the look (the process is given in more detailed steps in the Info section on YouTube). Using the hot rollers and spraying my hair beforehand with TONI&GUY Glamour 3D Volumiser, I achieved gorgeous, full, luscious curls with movement. If you also loosen up the curls like I did in the video, you'll see it can easily be a hairstyle that can take you from day to night. But it is most definitely a glamorous evening look that I will be recreating for my next night out in London. A big thank you to Romanda Sevelle (make-up artist and hair stylist) for doing my hair and to Mayssa Kachicho for filming!
In a couple of days, I will be hosting an incredible giveaway featuring some of the products used in this hair video - so stay tuned!

Lots of love

Top 5 Picks for Autumn 2014


With September in full swing and October approaching (my favourite month - not only because it's my birthday!), London's landscape has already started changing, its velvety green parks are slowly being transformed into collages of ochre-hued trees and soon the streets and pavements will all be carpeted in an array of dry Autumn leaves.

I've put together my Top 5 favourite picks for the season; of course, a comfy, cosy knit is key - this Zara one in sandy beige can be easily worn over skinny jeans (cause I'm definitely a sweater and skinnies kinda girl) or with a pencil skirt in black leather and those gorgeous burgundy ankle boots from & Other Stories. Loving the deep red colour and the design is very Chloé chic.

The caramel cape channels Hermès', Chloé's and Ralph Lauren's blanket cape creations that took to the catwalk in February. Wear it thrown over a chunky knit and some caramel leather shorts or with a shirt and some jeans for a casual day out. I wore it with a palette of similar, beige colours for Day 1 at LFW and added a pop of bright orange Manolos.

The perfect accessory for me this season is the crystal ear cuff. It looks like it's OTT but worn with chunky knits, nude make-up and sleek hair, it's styled to perfection. Finally, I'm totally crushing on this half-daisy faux fur clutch from Shrimps - pink and fluffy, it was made for me!

This season, there's no need to scrimp on your wardrobe essentials; with Raise.com, an online marketplace, you can buy gift cards to your favourite high street shops at discounted prices and - get this - you can sell your unwanted gift cards for cash! Win-win. Raise is currently available in the US only, but it is coming to the UK soon and that's why I have already signed up and have found fabulous gift cards for H&M, Topshop, Diane von Furstenberg and Helmut Lang (to name but a few!) up to 25% off - and it's not limited to fashion. You can find gift cards for MAC cosmetics, iTunes, your favourite restaurants, even Amazon. It's superb - get started here.
