Review: Very.co.uk & Love Label

Hi All!!

I was kindly contacted by Maria at Very the fashion website http://www.very.co.uk/ and she offered me the chance to order and review any item I wished (within a budget) from the popular site on my blog.

I ordered what I fancied straight away and was looking forward to receiving them quickly, however when my order did arrive Very had mixed my items up with another customer oops! My order was quickly replaced and here is what I ordered:


♥ Love Label Canyon Extreme Platform Heels ♥
£32



As soon as I saw these I knew they were meant to be mine. I have always wanted red heels but have never found any that I really liked. Like many I have admired the extreme platforms you see in shops such as Office, Topshop and River Island but I never had the confidence or determination to buy any because they just seem too high. Luckily these Love Label heels are easy to walk in even at 5inches!

I didn't know what to expect when my order arrived but to my surprise the heels are of the patent, shiny material then the matte look they appear on the website. However I was very happy with this but others may not be?! I think these heels are perfect to finish off a party outfit, even if its a plain black dress, no one will miss these babys!!! I was weary at first of wearing these heels out on thursday night (yes i've worn them already) but I have to say they are SO comfortable!

Take a look at what I wore on Thursday:




Top: Topshop
Bodycon Skirt: Primark
Belt: Primark
Heels: Very.co.uk


Here is a photo of them from my camera..





I also ordered...

♥ Love Label Lace Panel Bodysuit ♥
£18 in current sale


I haven't had the chance to wear it out yet but when I do I'll be sure to make an 'Outfit of the Night' post. I love the perfectly placed panels on this bodysuit and teamed with a cute lace bra to wear underneath and a bodycon skirt, skinny jeans or leggings it will make a sexy outfit.

All in all I am happy with my items and these are the first two items I have ever owned from the Love Label brand. I didn't realise this brand so many cute items.. I reckon I will be ordering some more items in the near future. *Thumbs Up*

Site of the Month: Alex Styles Photography

Hi All!


Website: Alex Styles Photography


So who remembers when I had this photoshoot for my 23rd birthday September 2009?







Wicked aren't they? Well these were taken by the talented photographer Alex Styles. He is a Wolverhampton based photographer with one of the cutest studios i've ever had the opportunity to be in. With a wide range of props, great facilities and also a very friendly character it's no wonder Alex is one of Wolverhampton's most popular photographers.

My photoshoot with him is what made me want to pursue modelling on a professional level. I enjoyed the shoot so much, Alex made me feel so comfortable and I was able to explore a range of styles and poses.

If you visit many peoples facebooks from Wolverhampton, it's not surprising that their default photo is an Alex Styles product!!! We just can't get enough of him :o)

I am naming his website as 'Site of the Month' because I love his work and would love to work with him again in the future. If anyone is local to him and thinking about getting some cool images whether it be for modelling, family portraits, products and soon enough weddings then don't hesitate! The website has just recently been revamped so I suggest you go take a peek..... oh yeah also.... my mother and I are featured on there hehe!!

NEW: Video of the Week

Hi All!

I've decided from now on I'm going to post a video that I love; not only for the song but its video content and what fashion style it has.

This week:
Madonna: Human Nature (1995)

"Express yourself, don't repress yourself"

As one of my favourite Madonna songs I love everything about it and everything it stands for; plus the video is WICKED!!! The pvc, the bushy hair, the whip and the chihuahua..... oh me oh my I can't get enough!!

I think for the year 1995 this was quite risky to say the least, the sexual innuendos and the pvc.. but that what makes this video great! And the choreography is fantastic!

What are your thoughts?

My fab leaving gift & outfit of the night

Hi All!!!!

So I left my job at the funeral directors last week and I am now back in the Recruitment industry (where i belong) as a Recruitment Administrator. It's a full time job, based in Birmingham and theres room for career progression which is what I really need in my life at the moment. I'm 23 years young and still living at home with the mother.... I need to get my own place so bad!! I need to learn to how to drive.. to be honest I just need to grow up haha :D

Well as a leaving gift the guys at the FD's gave me a River Island £15 voucher to which I bought this dress in the sale......


Dress: River Island
Heels: Bertie
Clutch: Topshop

This photo does it no justice but it is aztec designed bodycon with silver chains which hang across the shoulders. I decided to wear it out thursday night and got quite a few compliments on it. I was slightly worried that someone else would be wearing it also due to the sale only starting this week at my local River Island but luckily there wasn't!

Bath Time!!

Hi All!!

So the weather's getting increasingly warmer now, well apart from the rain we are having this week, and my cat Gizmo is constantly maulting EVERYWHERE! So I thought i'd give him a bath to get rid of the mess he calls a fur coat and well I shan't say anymore....



What I will say though is that he was however a very good kitty and stood still for me the whole time! How cute ♥

Katy Perry Chris Moyles: Wolverhampton Girls

Hi All

First off I would like to say:
Yes I am a Wolverhampton girl.... and proud ♥

I know this is a slightly delayed post and you may have already heard it, but I wanted to put it in my blog! Chris Moyles and the one and only stunning Katy Perry recorded a parody version of her new tune 'California Gurls'. Listen to it here, but the video is not the actual vid....





So what do you think?

I know their taking the mick but I find it very funny, and the area Low Hill she mentioned is right around the corner from my house haha.

Stop... strike a pose!

Hi All!

So I promised you a lil look at the images from my Pin Up syle photoshoot and here they are, you can click them to enlarge...






As you can probably tell, i'm trying to get into modelling at the moment. I love being in front of the camera and thought why not?!! I'm no size 6 or 5ft8 but i have a passion for the industry and love potraying a style or image for photographic form. I unfortunately am not agency represented but you never know what the future holds ;) I have approached some local agencies with no luck of signing but that wont stop me from getting shoots on my own... paid or unpaid im enjoying it and thats the main thing.

This is not the only photoshoot i have taken part in, i've been doing this since April now!! Here's some other images....
