Label.m Fashion Fix - the Bardot

I’ll admit it – I’ve fallen into the ‘boring hair’ trap. Day in and day out, I blow-dry the front and leave the rest to air dry, occasionally scraping it into some sort of bun, depending on my energy levels that day. 

But with Christmas parties fast approaching, it’s time to start paying attention to my hair and find some new ways to shake up my routine. Label.m have created ‘Fashion Fix’ kits that contain everything you need to create a current look. With clear instructions on the back of the box, copying the hair look feels incredibly simple. I tried the Bardot and was so happy with the results. I think these would make amazing Christmas presents for any girl looking to shake up her routine. Look out for my impending trial of the Nouveau Knot - I'm saving that one for my first festive bash!

Wash and use the Volume Mousse

Rough dry - already the volume is getting there!

Put the lower half into a low pony and backcomb the top section

I pulled mine out a bit to make it bigger - don't look at my greys!

Pin the top section around the pony with the grips in the kit

Brides Show 2015

I am not engaged (nor am I likely to be anytime soon) but that didn’t make me refuse a ticket to Brides 2015 when I was offered one. Does that make me a psycho? No. It makes me a woman who loves looking at beautiful things and is slightly, just ever so slightly obsessed with weddings.

Anyway, craziness aside, the Brides show was held in the Business Design Centre in Islington and there were stands for flowers, accessories, dresses, make-up and more – it was a true girly paradise, as I’m guessing you will be able to tell from my photos…

The Corinthia Spa

I had an incredible time at the Corinthia Spa, courtesy of the lovely Laurel Waldron. It was one of the most glamorous, relaxing times of my life and I’d highly recommend it to anyone needing a break in this big city of ours. My bikini is by Monsoon - it's on sale at the moment.

Pearly Queens

Imagine my surprise when I happened on this colourful surprise in Trafalgar Square – Pearly Kings and Queens! Don’t they look great?

Little Black Dress Party

I’ve long been a fan of Little Black Dress – the website is the perfect destination for cocktail and special event dresses. I own two of them – the Diana and the Kate.

I was invited to London’s Café Royale (where I attended their party last year) to see what the new collection had in store. There were some true show-stoppers – one of my favourites was a lace wraparound which I think would be perfect for work drinks with clients.

Miss Great Britain and Alesha Dixon both attended and we enjoyed some drinks and canapés together as we perused the new dresses. A portrait artist was on hand to capture the guests in watercolour.

It was a lovely evening and the website is going to be my number one choice for some new Christmas party dresses.
