We all need them once in a while and today I need one in a big way....

My weekend was filled with so much excitement and fun that it is difficult to need to rant but my Sunday was frustrating and clumsy and I hope that by venting my terrible day I will get rid of whatever malevolent cloud it was that seemed to follow me around yesterday!

Soooooo  here goes!

Firstly, my best buddy cancelled our day trip to Bluewater, this was no biggy but what it meant was that I ventured there alone!  I know what your thinking .. I spent money I did not have and now regret it..  WRONG!  It took me 20mins to get to the shopping Mecca and then 30 minutes trying to find a space!  Yes I said 30 minutes of driving in and out and up and down various car parks only to be greeted by other shoppers driving in aggressive manners stalking other shoppers who had bags back to their cars!  I felt I was above this option and instead drove in and out a total of 4 car parks before actually finding a spot!
I then ventured inside the shopping centre only to be run over 4 times by various buggy's and in fact fall over not once but twice in House of Fraser!  This however did not perterb me I went to H&M and did the shopping that I needed to do well about 1/3rd of the shopping I needed but hey!

I then venture home and begin to put some tester colours on our bedroom wall (we are thinking about re-decorating)  All of the colours are disgusting and it was a total waist of time so i decide to take the testers out to our shed!  But on route I drop them and my Uggs, Sweaty Betty trackys and my car wheel now resemble a Jackson Pollock painting.  Defeated I retreat to the comfort of my basement to snuggle up with a glass of vino and a hobnob to watch Strictly and X Factor results....

What a travesty that was, rather than cheering me up, my eyes and ears where offended by the reality that the big bird impersonator is going to be returning to my screens once again.  This means that next Saturday I will be glued to the TV with morbid curiosity, just so I can see what terrible outfit they come up with to top the BIG BIRD look of this week!

Then I switch to X Factor hoping that tonight will be the night that we finally see the back of Wagner and his talk singing and hideous style but instead Paije who I thought was a real cutey is out!  
Outraged and hormonal I ask could this day get any worse! 
Then like the answer to my prayers the aromas of cooked apple pie waft down the stairs from the oven.
Suddenly the Jackson Pollock uggs seem bang on trend, the fall in House of Fraser earlier feels like it could have popped my back in rather than out, the drive round the car parks gave my car good turn over!  I smile, I relax, I take the pie from the oven in an excited frenzy and..  it drops from my hands and lands upside down SPLATTERED all over the clean kitchen floor!

I hate full moons.  RANT OVER!

Fashion Sushi

Some of you may remember the maternity wear post I did a few weeks back.  If so you will remember me talking about the fab brand Isabella Oliver.  Well last night was the Isabella Oliver preview evening for the Spring Summer 365Collection, and despite the drizzly London Weather it was easy to feel instantly summery when viewing the collection.  Not just because the collection had some fab summer staples, but because the Isabella Oliver offices are light, bright and beautiful, any girl in her right mind would love to work for them with the fab clothes and gorgeous surroundings.

I thought the collection was like great sushi (which by the way we munched on while sipping champagne).  The reason I say that is because it's full of great basics and interchangeable fashion pieces!  So like sushi some garments work really well on their own..., like this fab one shoulder dress for example its so great why would you add anything to it?
Yet other pieces will work as a great capsule wardrobe from which you can create your California roll of choice!  Mix the cotton twill shorts with the perfect tank and add in the everyday biker jacket for an easy day look or swap out the tank for the gold sequin vest for a great summer evening glamour.

As soon as the collection goes live (which is next month), I will be spending this fab 30% off voucher on the black one shoulder dress and the gold sequin vest.  I suggest you all keep your eyes peeled as these are great summer staples that a girl should not have to live without!

Reveal Photoshoot

Check out the gorgeous Katie Piper, who I had the pleasure of working with again.  These are the pictures from the fab Reveal shoot that took place last week!  It is so refreshing to see Katie styled in a more young and fresh way, the styling has been kept very feminine but you can see that Katie has the potential to be very much on our fashion radar in the future.

I loved this next shot of Katie as it shows her with her hair straight which we don't often see and the styling is gorgeous, Katie kept this top from the shoot and was rocking it with a pair of skinny's and some killer heels as she left.
At the shoot Katie was saying how she loves to experiment with clothes and implied that there is a real rock chick hiding underneath the beautiful blue eyes and blonde hair, that is why I love this shot of her so much.
Check out more of the pictures and the article in this weeks Reveal, as there is some fab fashion and a great interview with Katie.

The best garment from the shoot was TopShop and we used Aussie take the heat range on her hair.

Fireworks night - Can you take the heat?

Last friday was Guy Fawkes night and instead of standing out in the cold watching the fireworks with damp and frizzy hair, I was on a fab VIP experience watching them all over the London Skyline from the London eye!  Yes, Friday night saw the launch of a fab new hair care range from Aussie.  The new products are called Take the Heat and help protect our luscious locks from heat damage like hair dryers, straighteners, tongs and even central heating!

It was a great day for the launch and, having been sent the products a few weeks in advance, all the aussie angels turned up with gorgeous locks despite the weather.  In the pods we drank champagne and nibbled on canapes, whilst watching London's skyline fill with fab firework displays.  It was oh so glam and was followed by a stretch hummer limo ride across the river to Jewel bar, where a glamourous fire dancer was performing; more cocktails and champers awaited us.

My sister was my plus 1 and also waceystyle official photographer and here are the amazing pics that she took of the evening, I think you will all agree she is one amazing photographer...

With Zoe of Londonlipgloss...

Here are some of the gorgeous shots big sis took on our trip!  I am going to put some of them on my wall because they are so beautiful!

Here is a little pic of big sis and I with our gorgeously Aussie Take the Heat styled hair!  The stuff really works ladies.  Not only does it smell gorgeous and feel silky it is a great styling product.  Next week I will have pics of some styles I created at a photoshoot today using the products!

Loving your style!

I saw this guy on the tube on Saturday and thought his style was great. 

His hairstyle was fab with long curls on top and then short at the side, he had turned the collar up on his great Tweed blazer and the blue shirt made the colour of his eyes pop!  I am not sure if they were on a date but I interrupted them to take a picture anyway because I thought their outfits really complimented each other and on a train full of sad looking jeans and 't' shirt's it was really refreshing to see such a stylish young pair.

He has definitely inspired my next shoot..
