The Red Statement Blazer

April 5, 2017

I for one am a sucker for a blazer; I have a dozen different colours/styles hung up in my wardrobe (or say packed in my suitcase, depending on where I am jetting off to).

And lets be honest, we all love the classic black blazer. I mean, it is sophisticated, timeless and forever classy…how can it ever do you wrong? BUT now summer is approaching I think it is time to give the loyal black blazer a well deserved rest and maybe swap it for a statement piece instead… how about RED?

This is one of favourite blazers I bought from Zara not so long along. I like to style around the blazer or even rock it as a suit (I have the matching trousers of course).

OHHH and I don’t suggest walking around in nothing but a bikini and your blazer… just like I did for one of my most recent photo shoots. It was a lot colder than it looks… trust me.

Classic Chanel

October 15, 2015

Classic Chanel

A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous

This year marks the revolutionary Chanel shoulder bag’s 60th anniversary, and it is just as popular now, if not more than it was in 1955.

I think I speak on behalf of billions of fashion-obsessed girls when I say a classic Chanel flap bag is something you aspire to own from birth. The bags are timeless, elegant and ooze high fashion glamour.

A classic Chanel bag is one of those must have items, like Louboutin heels or a Burberry trench.

 

‘I NEED this bag in my life’

 

Here are 10 reasons as to why you should own a Chanel flap bag.

  1. Chanel regularly increases it’s prices so the bags tend to hold their value well for years. This means that buying one now isn’t too risky and can be considered an investment.
  2. You can always sell the bag and recoup most, if not all of your money.
  3. Owning one makes you feel like you are in an exclusive elite.
  4. The flap bag has ‘inspired’ so many designers to date. If you are going to buy one, you might as well get the original.
  5. The Chanel flap bag in caviar leather will last a lifetime.
  6. The bags are still price-prohibitive so not everyone will be able to own one.
  7. The Chanel Boy Bag was a game changer
  8. There is a wait list for Chanel bags which no one speaks of.
  9. There are so many Vintage Chanel bags still available on the market because they never go out of fashion.
  10. It is Chanel!

Paris and the Eiffel Tower with Chloe…Parisian getaway!

July 20, 2015

Check out Paris and the Eiffel Tower with Chloe. Dreaming of a Parisian getaway!

Four years ago this summer I found myself being whisked away on a romantic getaway to Paris. If there is one thing you MUST do whilst exploring Paris it is to visit the magnificent Eiffel Tower.

The Eiffel Tower is an iron lattice tower located on the champ de mars in Paris, France.

It has become a global cultural icon of France and is one of the most recognisable structures in the world. As well as being the tallest structure in Paris, it is also the most visited monument in the world.

It is not surprising that the Eiffel Tower witnesses so many marriage proposals. It is a magical 324m Parisian icon, scaling three floors with panoramic views of the city.

If romance is what you are after you can chink glasses in the top floor champagne bar overlooking the city and if you wait to visit the tower after dark the tower sparkles every hour on the hour with 20,000 gold lights… Heck, it doesn’t get more romantic then that.

The Avocado is officially Queen Green

July 16, 2015

Avocados – Sorry Kale you’re no longer Queen Green… All Hail the Avocado!

Now before I go any further, I would just like to point out that I have been obsessed with the avocado since day one (it probably helps that I am a vegetarian/pescatarian)

Why should you be eating them?!

  • Avocados help aid weight loss
  • Boosts your brain performance
  • Incredibly nutritious
  • Avocado help control blood pressure
  • Improves your heart health
  • One of the cleanest produce around
  • Contain more potassium then bananas
  • Loaded with fibre and antioxidants
  • May help prevent cancer
  • Easy to incorporate into your diet
  • THEY ARE DELICIOUS

Here are some of the most abundant nutrients, in a single 3.5 ounce (100 gram) serving (3):

  • Vitamin K: 26% of the RDA.
  • Folate: 20% of the RDA.
  • Vitamin C: 17% of the RDA.
  • Potassium: 14% of the RDA.
  • Vitamin B5: 14% of the RDA.
  • Vitamin B6: 13% of the RDA.
  • Vitamin E: 10% of the RDA.

Then it contains small amounts of Magnesium, Manganese, Copper, Iron, Zinc, Phosphorous, Vitamin A, B1 (Thiamine), B2 (Riboflavin) and B3 (Niacin).

This is coming with 160 calories, 2 grams of protein and 15 grams of healthy fats. Although it contains 9 grams of carbs, 7 of those are fibre so there are only 2 “net” carbs, making this a low-carb friendly plant food.

There is literally SO much you can too with these green babies. You can have avocado on toast, add them to smoothies and salads… You can create a stuffed avocado by adding a flavourful filling of your choice say tuna, egg, goats cheese, prawns, smoked salmon, vegetables, couscous… AHHH I’m hungry again.

Avocado's rule!

 

On that note I will leave you with some mouth-watering pictures of avocado dishes that you could try out at home.

365 Days Of Happiness

Day2

January 5, 2015

Something that made me Happy:

Meeting up the girls for a yummy Nando’s and then a quick drink in town! (Except I had diet coke and cranberry juice due to Dry January)

A random act of kindness:

Continuously refilling my friends glasses with soft drinks… Could this possibly count as exercise? I was up and down like a yoyo 😛

Banana Baby

October 23, 2014
banana

I going to be loud and proud and admit I am obsessed with bananas! I am not about to go banana crazy but I do blend one or two almost everyday (that’s if I am not chopping up the little yellow fella and chucking it into my baobab cinnamon porridge.

I did a little research online and found 25 awesome Banana ‘facts.’

Due to my kind hearted nature I thought it was only fair to share all the banana facts/uses below:

ENJOY

  1. Bananas help overcome depression due to high levels of tryptophan, which is converted into serotonin — the happy-mood brain neurotransmitter.
  2. Eat two bananas before a strenuous workout to pack an energy punch and sustain your blood sugar.
  3. Protect against muscle cramps during workouts and nighttime leg cramps by eating a banana.
  4. Counteract calcium loss during urination and build strong bones by supplementing with a banana.
  5. Improve your mood and reduce PMS symptoms by eating a banana, which regulates blood sugar and produces stress-relieving relaxation.
  6. Bananas reduce swelling, protect against type II diabetes, aid weight loss, strengthen the nervous system, and help with the production of white blood cells, all due to high levels of vitamin B-6.
  7. Strengthen your blood and relieve anemia with the added iron from bananas.
  8. High in potassium and low in salt, bananas are officially recognized by the FDA as being able to lower blood pressure and protect against heart attack and stroke.

    Eating Bananas Aids Digestion

  9. Rich in pectin, bananas aid digestion and gently chelate toxins and heavy metals from the body.
  10. Bananas act as a prebiotic, stimulating the growth of friendly bacteria in the bowel. They also produce digestive enzymes to assist in absorbing nutrients.
  11. Constipated? High fiber in bananas can help normalize bowel motility.
  12. Got the runs? Bananas are soothing to the digestive tract and help restore lost electrolytes after diarrhoea.
  13. Bananas are a natural antacid, providing relief from acid reflux, heartburn and GERD.
  14. Bananas are the only raw fruit that can be consumed without distress to relieve stomach ulcers by coating the lining of the stomach against corrosive acids.

    Natural Cures From A Simple Banana

  15. Eating bananas will help prevent kidney cancer, protects the eyes against macular degeneration and builds strong bones by increasing calcium absorption.
  16. Bananas make you smarter and help with learning by making you more alert. Eat a banana before an exam to benefit from the high levels of potassium.
  17. Bananas are high in antioxidants, providing protection from free radicals and chronic disease.
  18. Eating a banana between meals helps stabilize blood sugar and reduce nausea from morning sickness.
  19. Rub a bug bite or hives with the inside of the banana peel to relieve itching and irritation.
  20. Control blood sugar and avoid binging between meals by eating a banana.
  21. Eating a banana can lower the body temperature and cool you during a fever or on a hot day.
  22. The natural mood-enhancer tryptophan, helps to relieve Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD).
  23. Quitting smoking? Bananas contain high levels of B-vitamins as well as potassium and magnesium to speed recovery from the effects of withdrawal.
  24. Remove a wart by placing the inside of a piece of banana peel against the wart and taping it in place.
  25. Rub the inside of a banana peel on your leather shoes or handbag and polish with a dry cloth for a quick shine

Greasy hair beware!

October 20, 2014

Have you ever found yourself in a grim and ‘greasy’ situation and you’ve finished the last of your dry shampoo?!? No stress… baby powder is the perfect cover up! You can sprinkle it onto your roots or brush it throughout your hair.  Not only does it remove the oil but it smells clean.

Baby powder works wonders for blondes/grey hairs. QUICK TIP: You could also add a little bit of cocoa powder to the baby powder if you are brunette… Redheads try cinnamon… brush it throughout your hair.

Other awesome uses for Baby Powder include:

Ant repel

Pet shampoo

Removes Sand and grease stains

Loosen up playing cards

Ease waxing pain

Freshen up your shoes

Add to plastic gloves to fit into them easier (eliminates moisture) 

Freshen closets

Cool your sheets during the hot months

Makes a good deodorant and keeps your fresh

Soothes your skin

WHAT!? You are out of baby powder too :O ooooook… how about adding some translucent powder to your powder brush and brush that onto your roots/tzone. This is also a clever substitute for dry shampoo 😀

LFW14 Basharatyan V SS15

September 16, 2014
Basharatyan

BASHARATYAN V is a newly launched label by the talented, young fashion designer, Veronica Basharatyan.

http://www.basharatyanv.com

I was honoured to have been chosen as one of the models to walk in the Basharatyan LFW14 SS15 show.

Backstage was relatively relaxed, well organised and warm. The design team, hair and make-up artists were hardworking, focused and friendly..

The SS15 Collection showcased Suits & Stilettos, Coffee Bean inspired designs, Chiffon Delicates, Sweetheart Necklines, Ruby Red and Sparkly Gowns and Mafia Chick Outfits. The Collection has elegant and feminine pieces you can wear in the day but also jazz up in the evening.

The Show was packed out and plenty of photographers were bunched together at the end of the runway aiming to get that perfect shot. The scent of freshly grounded coffee filled the room as the first two models walked out in old school italian pinstripe suits clutching espresso cups.

My favourite outfit had to be a dazzling chiffon golden and dark coffee inspired gown that skimmed the floor beautifully on the runway. Any woman who wears this dress would have the world at her feet. Every man and woman would stop, stare and admire from all distances.

The makeup consisted of black flicks, nude smackers and popping cheekbones whilst the hair was a dreamy but retro Sophia Loren Bob.

The Basaharatyan woman is effortlessly cool, stylish but fierce.
