What is there not to love about Victoria Beckham? She was once apart of the worlds biggest girl band, she is married to one of the greatest football players of all time, she also has the best looking family ever, she is very invested in her charity work and she is a woman of style who has her very own line and is well respected throughout the fashion industry. In addition to releasing her very own affordable collection with target, her collection is going to also cater to the plus size market which is amazing!
Victoria Beckham – “I want to empower women and girls, and make them feel like the best versions of themselves. The fact that I can offer plus size is really exciting, it’s a first for me, and it’s something important that I’m proud of.”
Target has revealed that her upcoming high-street collection which is to hit stores early this April will reflect her “very honest” relationship with her daughter Harper. In an interview with InSyle magazine Victoria said ‘This is fun, easy, cute, all of those things. Very honest. Very me’. In the interview Victoria also spoke about being finally accepted as a “credible” fashion designer, which she says equals her Spice Girl achievements. “I’m really proud of what I achieved with the Spice Girls, but I’m also proud of everything I have done with my brand,” she continued to the publication. “So that meant a lot to me, you know? That’s Tom Ford saying, ‘We look at you as a credible designer,’ which was very cool.”
Lets talk skincare routines! Every women at some stage in their life is conscience about their skin. We spend hundreds of pounds every year looking for new ways to get clearer and better skin. And spend years trying to perfect our skin care routines. Sometimes they work and sometimes they don’t, it’s a win or lose kind of situation.
As a teenager my skin is so important to me so I try maintain it as best I can. Who has the effort to wear makeup every single day, especially when they’re going to school or college? Definitely not me. That is why I have spent the last few months trialling a range of skincare products looking for my favourite ones. And I think I may have finally perfected my skin care routine (hopefully).
Recently I have been getting a bunch of comments from people on how glowy and clear my skin is, So I thought that i’d share my secret with you because a healthy glow is a way of life!
My Skincare Routine;
- To start off I use my Neutrogena Hydro Boost Cleanser, this is extremely hydrating and is a great way to remove excess oils from the skin and makeup residue .
- Next I go in with my Neutrogena Visibly Clear Cream Wash, this is my holy grail, this is amazing for preventing spots and it makes your skin feel so fresh!
- After I use the Garnier Pure Active Charcoal Anti- Blackheaf scrub, I only use this 4 times a week as it is very intense and can be quite harsh on the skin but it is excellent for getting clearer skin and removing impurities, you can also use it as a mask.
- To finish off I use the the mint temptation scrub from scrub love, this is the key to my glow, it’s moisturising, refreshing and just overall amazing, you can even use it on the rest of your body too, especially to lighten stretch marks.
- Lastly I use the Sanctuary Spa Illuminating Moisture Lotion which has spf 15, if you’re looking for something to help get rid of dark marks and hyper pigmentation, this is what you need! Over that I use the Body Shop Vitamin C Glow Boosting Moisturiser to awaken my complexion and enhance my natural radiance to give me a healthy glow. Both of these products are great for awakening dull skin in the winter months!
Just less than 2 months ago Clare Waight Keller officially resigned from her post at Chloe but last week the house of Givenchy announced that Ms Waight Keller would become their new creative director. This makes her the first woman to run the creative side of the house founded by Hubert de Givenchy in 1952 and the second female designer to take the creative lead at an LVMH couture house after Maria Grazia Chiuri at Christian Dior. LVMH is slowly changing perceptions of roles in fashion, the largest luxury group in the world is increasingly focused on the talents of female designers, and changing a historical pattern. This news comes after the departure of Riccardo Tisci in January after a 12 year reign at the famous fashion house.
“I am very happy to have Clare Waight Keller join the LVMH group,” said Bernard Arnault, chairman of LVMH. “I believe her widespread expertise and vision will allow Givenchy to enter the next phase of its unique path.”
Philippe Fortunato, CEO of Givenchy Couture, who said: “I am very excited to see Clare bring her singular sense of elegance and modernity to Givenchy. By exploring our maison’s 65-year heritage and the outstanding savoir-faire of its ateliers, I am convinced Clare will help Givenchy reach its full potential.”
She has no experience in haute couture so It will be interesting to see Keller’s vision for the brand come to life. Waight Keller will present her first collection for Givenchy in October in Paris, for Spring/Summer 2018. She is the complete opposite of Riccardo, she is known for her femininity, modernity and elegance, whereas, Tisci was a man known for cutting edge street wear fashion notoriously achieving distinctive graphic sweatshirts, sneakers and sportswear-inspired garments.
Mom jeans, another trend from the 90’s that is currently dominating the world right now! Recently fashionistas everywhere have been swapping out skinny jeans for Mom jeans. But who can blame them? Mom jeans are incredibly flattening and extremely comfortable, whether you have hips or not they will hug you in all the right places. The skinny jean is officially dead!
Over the last two years numerous fashion retailers such as net- a- porter and Asos have reported an increase in sales on jeans, however not in skinny jeans. Last year alone Asos sold over 12,000 of it’s blue ‘Farleigh’ Mom jean, which are priced at an incredibly £35. Bargain right? Although skinny jeans may not be as popular as they used to be, we are buying more jeans than ever before!
But where did it all go wrong for skinny jeans? ‘Jeggings ruined them,’ says Donna Wallace, ELLE’s Accessories Editor, who currently favours a pair of Lee straight-leg men’s jeans that she’s cut off at the hems. ‘As soon as they started bastardising the denim and putting in too much stretch, it became trashy.’
Fashion and the way that we shop has changed so much in the last few years and our perceptions of what we once thought of as cool and stylish have shifted in a big way. People and designers are experimenting more and it’s truly amazing to see. The new wave of denim only proves to us that fashion is constantly changing, becoming more and more daring everyday which is so exciting. With thousands of influencers out there showing us how to rock our denim it’s almost impossible not to cop their style.
Social Media has allowed us to see how real people make clothes and trends work for them. Inspiration nowadays is everywhere, it’s right at our fingertips. This has undeniably allowed us to be more adventurous and more confident in our fashion choices. No wonder denim is so diverse now!
My favourite source of mom jeans;
Topshop and Asos are my holy grail when it comes to denim! You will never find jeans as comfy as these on the high street, trust me.
If there is anything that I love in this world, it’s bags, more specifically designer bags! The material, the design, the quality, just everything about them! I still haven’t received by first designer bag as of yet and until that day comes I will continue to add bags that I cannot afford to my ever growing and never ending wishlist. if I had the money I would probably own more designer bags than the Kardashian sisters combined! That is no lie.
My love for bags probably began when my mum bought me my first ever tiny denim hand bag at the innocent age of 4, I took it everywhere I went and ever since then I have adored bags. I have always envisioned that the first designer bag I will ever buy myself will be a Chanel, more precise a boy bag, there is no doubt about it!
Spring is coming and I cannot wait to be done with winter. Spring may not be my favourite season but it is one step closer to summer and that means brighter, warmer and longer days for us here in the UK. And as much as I love a good quality knit I cannot wait to get my legs out and embrace the sun. I am ready for spring, I am ready for brighter and warmer days, I am ready for summer!
Last season embroidered bags were everywhere and this year is certainly no different. For this coming season of spring designers brought out so many bold designs with the brightest of colours. Spring has never been so colourful!
My favourite bags for the season;
Knowing what to wear to any type of interview can be quite a task. For one you want to make a good first impression but you also need to feel comfortable and let your personality shine, that way the person your sitting in front of can get a sense of who you are as a person.
What to never wear to an interview:
- A Short skirt
- Bright Underwear that is visible through clothing
- Wet hair
- distracting jewellery (keep it simple)
- Visible body piercings and huge tattoos
- Anything casual; jeans, t-shirts, trainers etc. Whether or not you’re applying for a job that will require formal dress, you should always choose something formal for the interview.
The rules of what to wear to a job interview;
- A smile
- Colour (but not too much)
- And of course a great pair of shoes
