New wave of brave brides

October 14, 2015

New wave of brave brides…

Something old, something new, something borrowed, something… see-through?

New York’s Bridal Fashion Week saw near-naked models strut down the runway in some rather risky designs. It seems the desire to wear these raunchy gowns have grown from the start of the year and now sheer translucent bridal gowns are being welcomed onto the isle. Some of the gowns have a deep plunging neckline, whilst others opt for super thigh high splits or even complete nipple exposure. It is one way to demand the crowds attention and another to push bridal wear into the next millennia.

Is it time to wave goodbye to the big puffy under skirts, long statement trains, lace veils and tiaras??? Surely not… but for those brave another to wear these daring gowns make sure you kitted out with nipple covers and maybe some heavy duty tit tape.

Prague Castle

December 2, 2014

Prague Castle – My visit and experience

Prague Castle – the ancient symbol of the Czech state – is the most significant Czech monument and one of the most important cultural institutions.

Prague Castle is definitely a magical place to visit; especially in the Winter. I really enjoyed my trip to the castle and the architectural is a must see; very beautiful decor and atmosphere. I was also lucky enough to see the change of the guards at noon; this was pretty cool.

It is a lovely building steeped in history; luckily my entire tour was accompanied by the Director of the foreign Department from the Office of the President of the Republic PaedDr. Hynek Ravi. In short, I was told the history of the Castle throughout the duration of the tour whilst the Director also shared a couple of humorous stories related to the castle’s history.

I was also lucky enough to visit the rooms which tourists are not allowed access to.

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.

Knowsley Suite Hotel Review

August 11, 2014

My friends got married over the second weekend in August 2014 (Saturday 9th August). I stayed at the Knowsley Suite Hotel with my partner. The drive from London was long and due to weather conditions took us over 4.5 hours to arrive (without any stops). All you look forward to at this time is a warm welcome, a nice room and a cup of tea!

We booked two nights at the Knowsley Suites Hotel in an ‘Executive Suite’ which proved to be spacious, clean and close to the reception area. The suite was perfect for my partner and I as we were able to get ready in separate rooms if we wished to. There area few mirrors dotted around the suite so you can do your hair/makeup in either the bedroom, living room or bathroom.

There is a decent sized living room which has a desk, office chair, sofa, separate television, mini table and a small area with a kettle, coffees, teas etc. The bedroom was again roomy with a well-dressed bed, cushions and neat sheets. The bathroom was an average size had a shower curtain as opposed to a screen which I personally prefer. All in all the room was perfectly clean and much better than other hotel bedrooms we have stayed at before.

In the morning we made our way to the breakfast buffet. The full English breakfast was tasty and I even managed to get some vegetarian sausages on the sunday morning. You can help yourselves to cereals, cooked English food and many varieties of eggs and continentals pastries. Again very good for the unconventional breakfast feaster like myself as I like to have a random assortment of foods!

The only disappoint we had with staying in the hotel was that the rooms were quite hot (no air con) and there was a loud noise that sounded like a broken machine/fan that lasted about half an hour on Sunday morning around 8:00am; to our annoyance this woke us up. I did notify the staff when I checked out. Late night (early morning) room service took around 20-30minutes to arrive which consisted of tuna and cheese, and egg and cress sandwiches. The ironing board was also broken which was slightly annoying as my partner needed to iron his shirt desperately on the morning of the wedding. The staff said they would get another ironing board but it never came. After a few phone calls later they confirmed they did not have one they could lend us. When we returned after the wedding reception around 1:00am there was an iron board propped up against the wall in our room. Our room was not made on the Saturday morning which was a shame. Other than a few issues I would stay at this hotel again and did enjoy my stay. The breakfast was good and there was another choices to choose from. I wish I had time to check out the spa and gym facilities but unfortunately I had to leave early Sunday as it was a 6hour drive home. Overall I would recommend the hotel 🙂
