Nail trends by the seasons can be pretty predictable: soft watercolours for spring, candy-hued brights for summer, and moodier reds, blues, and greys for autumn and winter. However, this year in the spring/summer runway shows they seemed to have hundreds for us to obsess over
As my waistline continues to expand I'm looking for more ways to express my personal style without caving in to maternity wear which seems to instantly transform me in to a pregnant Charlotte from Sex And The City. Cute and feminine but not very me. One trend this spring that I'm loving is the patent vinyl jacket.
Prague has been on my bucket list for a while. It's a city I’ve always been curious about with its contrasting cultural and historical significance and its reputation for riotous stag weekends. We came with mixed views and expectations.
Take one wardrobe staple and style it up in a new way.... it's as good a policy as any for spring and this is exactly what the designers were doing on the SS/18 catwalks with the humble trench coat. It also became one of the star pieces of the street style battles outside the shows too. So if we could all pretend that it's not currently baltic cold and snowing outside let's look forward to the new season and the perfect cross over piece to carry us through.
Having spent years experimenting with the colour of my hair during my teens and twenties I had finally succumbed to the 'au naturale' look and then the dreaded greys began to set in.

After taking my mother on her 70th birthday I just had to shout about the Victoria Grand Afternoon Tea. You can enjoy sea views in their opulent, newly designed refurbished Victoria Terrace and indulge indulge in their famous Traditional Afternoon Tea. The staff are warm and friendly and the cakes are to die for! It's a must if you visit Brighton or have a special occasion where you want to spoil someone.
This series of portraits taken in the 1970's documents sex workers from the former red light district in Tehran, Iran. It gives a fascinating and slightly harrowing insight in to the inner-city ghetto where approximately 1,500 women lived and worked.
Call Me by Your Name is a coming-of-age romantic drama film based on the 2007 novel of the same name by André Aciman. Set in the summer of 1983 Elio (Timothée Chalamet) is living an idyllic existence in Italy with his parents. One summer, his charmed life is disturbed by Oliver (Armie Hammer), who comes to spend six weeks with the family, helping Elio’s father. They're six weeks that will change Elio’s life forever. It's the best film we've watched this year.
