All that glitters is rose gold

I love gold but sometimes it can look cheap and lacks a certain class and elegance.  For a while I've been lusting after rose gold, it was the warmth that gold does not.    Asos has some beautiful rose gold jewellery and of course the Michael Kors watch is to die for, but Fossil was an equally beautiful dupe.  As well and accessories there are gorgeous nail polishes by Deborah Lippman and Essie.

Sadly I don't have the money to spend right now but I've been dropping less than subtle hints to loved ones just in time for Christmas

Tis the party season

I love to dress up, sequins, feathers, glittery door knocker earrings, tacky neclaces, embroidery, embellishment, lace and velvet.  The more over the top, the better!

Topshop are the masters of party outfits, here are a few of my picks for the festive season.

Red hair appreciation

Auburn, strawberry blonde, titian and of course the word that makes my blood run cold, ginger.  Red hair doesn't go unnoticed, which leads to some rather unwarranted abuse.  For year I was ashamed of my own red locks, going as far as dying it the blackest black imaginable.

But as I got older I realised just how lucky I was to have such an usual shade of hair and i'm proud as it makes me different.

So many celebs have such gorgeous hair, people such as Julianne Moore, Nicola Roberts of Girls Aloud fame and Christina hendricks have jumped on the auburn bandwagon.  Nicola Roberts in particular has embraced her natural beauty having spent years trying to adhere to the tanned, brunette stereotype of beauty.

So lets say together "I am auburn and I am proud!"

If you want to recreate the red look yourself I recommend this absolutely gorgeous colour
