Beyonce covers Ebony Magazine

Beyonce Knowles graces the cover of Ebony Magazine's April issue where she discusses home life with Jay Z among other things. The photos are very visually dynamic, Beyonce's never been one to go for the generic when it comes to styling. Her look for the photoshoot is a departure from what it has been while promoting her new album 'I am...Sasha Fierce.

Slumdog Millionaire Dance Craze

Looks like this movie may start a Single Ladies -esq dance craze. This movie in my opinion changed the Oscars this year - it's far from the usual borefest associated with oscar nominated films. If you haven't seen the movie, go see it NOW! If you have seen it, well...go see it again. Enjoy x x

I've been shopping around for a new scent and as fun as that sounds, it's so hard to choose from the millions of brands on the market. I've narrowed it down to these four:

Sarah Jessica Parker has created a signature look and fragrance that is ultra-feminine and timeless. tastefully hip. This, in my opinion is the best perfume ever created by a celebrity (I'm not a big fan of celeb fragrances). The perfume has been described as one which blends a scent of pure innocence with the exotic nature of a precious oil and the sophistication of a fine perfume. That is no lie. This one is a must-have if you love all things feminine, elegant and classic. I'm sad because I've got about 2 sprays left till it's finished.

Chemistry: Top notes sparkle with Fresh Mandarin, Bergamot and Radiant Rosewood rushing into Lush Lavender and Crisp Apple Martini. Middle Notes Blossom with Exotic Patchouli, the perfume of paper whites and creamy orchid. Bottom Notes Seduce and Linger with Sensuous Cedar, White Maber, Sultry Musk and Woods.

I reckon 'Elle' is the perfect name for this fragrance as it conjures up the right images of what it really is. I adore the design of the bottle - very chic. An audacious and feminine fragrance for a cosmopolitan girl - vibrantly feminine and ultra contemporary. It fuses woody and floral notes to create a perfume for a woman with no reservations.

Chemistry: A blend of Peony, Pink Berries and Patchouli

Euphoria By Calvin Klein was launched as a Fun, Enticing (I hate that word, lol!) Scent for Women. I love it for not being too over-powering and it's a really great fragrance in a humid environment. I think this is going to be my present to myself on my birthday. Apparently, the bottle design was inspired by an orchid about to bloom.

Chemistry: The Beautiful Fragrance has top notes of Pomegranate, Persimmon, and a Lovely Lush Green Accord. The Heart then blends into a sensual Lotus Blossom and black Orchid. Bottom notes are Amber, Violet, Cream And Woods.

'Simple yet sensual, comforting yet captivating'. This one is a strong and bold woman's perfume. I imagine a powerful and sophisticated business mogul. She has a mysterious and seductive nature. I'm not too familiar with Armani's fragrances and I hear their women's perfumes are not as popular as the males (this one was created from the male version) but this is a good attempt.

Chemistry: Orange flower note with fresh ginger accents and the caress of honey-sandalwood accord.


Aww...too cute.

This really made me want to go and get the perfume (only thing stopping me was the price tag)

I Think this has a lot to do with the CSS track.

Perfect which shoes?

Hello fashionistas. For my post today, I thought it might be helpful to give some advice on which shoes go with each style of jean - I myself used to find it tricky.

It seems most of us are not quite ready to give up on the skinny jean yet. It's the go-to item of clothing for those 'I have nothing to wear' situations. You can never go wrong with Skinny jeans and a cute top. The best shoes to wear with skinny jeans are ballet flats or thin-heeled/stiletto pumps.

Faith Red Patent Heels

Tory Burch Reva Patent Flats


Personally, I find boot-cut jeans the hardest to wear. They are best suited to cowboy boots or knee-high boots which is fine if you are in live where the sun don't shine (lol!). The wider leg will allow the shaft of the jeans to hang comfortably over the boots. However, these jeans are not very good for those who prefer tucking jeans into boots (skinnies are perfect for that) because the excess material will keep spilling over the boots.

My advise for fashionistas in warmer climates would be to try strappy sandals.

Georgina Goodman Suede boots


These jeans are a throwback to the 70s and always make a reappearance. So if you are skeptical about making the investment, don't worry! The appropriate shoes for this type of jean are platform heels or wedges. I know some people suggest cute flats but it can be a little tricky to pull off and usually results in a frumpy look.

When choosing this style of jean, you should make sure that they are not too long or short - go for something that falls an inch to the ground. Also, I find that the slightly high waisted versions are more flattering. Keep the top either fitted or short and slightly loose paired with a platform peep-toe for some va va voom or wedges paired with big sunglasses and stacked bangles to keep the overall look funky.

Tory Burch Julianne Wedge

Tory Burch Cerise Canvas Wedge (Perfect for Summer!)


Thick heeled- court shoes generally look good with straight cut jeans. Depending on the length (if they are ankle swingers), flat pumps are also acceptable. I think they look a little weird with boots.

Sheer Delight

Spring is almost here and with that comes the early predictions of what's going to be hot in Spring/Summer fashion. The sheer trend was around in 2008 but it is really hotting up for 09 - lots of celebrities wearing it.

Designers featured sheer fabrics in a multitude of ways to create ultra sexy and feminine outfits without the wearer having to sacrifice all their dignity. The Spring/Summer 09 runway collections feature lots of cool and sexy sheer pieces, layers, and delicate, feminine draping. Soft and feminine or hardcore sex-kitten? Whatever your taste, there's bound to be a piece you'll love.
