Trend Tip: Oxblood

Introducing the hottest new colour trend for Autumn/Winter 2013 (and where to find it)…

Oxblood: the "in" shade for AW13

Oxblood: the “in” shade for AW13

Oxblood is in, so say the fashion masses. It’s a deep red wine colour that is reminiscent of drinking mulled wine as the air grows crisper and the leaves change colour (my favourite time of year), making it perfect for Autumn/Winter. It’s deep and luxurious, with a lush richness that makes it super striking.

I’m loving oxblood knits – keep your eye out for warm snuggly sweaters or luxurious infinity loop scarves (something definitely on my wish list!), or add in a little colour with an oxblood lipstick or nail polish. Oxblood is perfectly paired with black, charcoal, white and other neutrals – a jump away from the garish neons we have been seeing all summer.

Here are a few of my fave finds (and where you can get them) – what do you think? View Post

What a wonderful week #6

Blueberries

1. I’ve been eating blueberries by the bucketload! Super sweet and delicious, and pretty healthy in terms of snacking. If someone would plant me a blueberry bush (tree? shrub?) or deliver me fresh blueberries on a regular basis, I would be so happy. View Post

I’m a big fan of matte nails, and they’re super on trend right now, so when I went to see Jess at Monaco Nails & Beauty this week I knew that I wanted a matte manicure! After Jess talked me out of having black nails (what? It goes with everything in my wardrobe, and looks fab with a glossy French tip!), I decided on Artistic Colour Gloss in Privileged – a deep purple with a heavy dose of glitter that looks absolutely amazing in matte. Thanks Jess, it looks fantastic. View Post
