Interview with a vampire

Robert Pattinson, star of Twilight and the object of most women over the age of fourteen's obsession covers this month's GQ magazine. The interview was certainly interesting (check out the interview on the GQ website). I love the outfit choices for the photoshoot, although he could probably wear a bin bag and still look hot.

My favourite shot...but smoking is really bad for you

Ha ha ha, that hair!

Stepping out

I spotted these fabulous shoes on ASOS and i'm totally lusting over them.

Just Cavalli Croc T-Bar Platform Wedge Sandals
I love the Delicious shade of orange and the mock croc effect. I'm drawn to platforms because they are comfortable but you still get that super high heeled effect.

ASOS Premium Snake Lace Front Platform Peep Toe

Hot, hot and hot! Really like the lace-up front with peep toe and the buckle detail. Go-to item for adding some edge to your outfit.

Colour Clashing

Confessions of a shopaholic....a masterclass in colour clashing.

Ok it's not really a brand new trend but yes! Clashing is good this spring/summer...there's a right and wrong way to clash colours of course. Boring matchy matchy has gone out the door folks. Try new combinations and variations of hues - think outside the box. Green/pink, Purple/Blue, Red/Yellow, Brown/Pink, Blue/Red, Orange/Peach ... just get the hues right. What I liked the most about the wardrobe from 'Confessions of a shopaholic' was the presence of colour. Not just the wonderful bright colours, but the way they were put together to create fun and sometimes quirky outfits.

I've created a few examples with fresh ways to pair colours and more traditional colours that go well together but are not matchy matchy.

Tip: Be careful with the temperature of your outfit. Hot pink with Neon green is never a good idea, Ugly Betty is only adorable on TV. I find that pastels are a lot easier to play around with especially if you are not used to colour coordinating.

Official Report and details on the Rihanna and Chris Brown Incident

I decided against commenting on this incident until the REAL facts in the case became available. This is a CNN report which includes details from the affidavit filed by the Los Angeles police department.

Chris' attack is even more violent than i originally imagined, he tried to push her out of a moving car and had her head in an arm-lock!! I wish her family might have been able to make her get some counseling because getting back together with Chris is clearly not a good idea.
