Birthdayyyyyyyyyyyy!!

A note from Joelle...

Well, well, well! I am officially 17 and feel FABULOUS! Not only did I get the most amazing presents, I also got the chance to go to London Fashion Weekend  with my mum. It was cold and wet in London town today, but we pulled through just about. When we arrived, we were given our special £1 March issue of Elle magazine, a catwalk goody-bag and entry into the eclectic world in LFWE.
It was absolutely amazing and there were so many freebies and tasters to get our hands on. Speaking of hands, I went into the Rimmel London room and got a manicure for £10!! My talons are a beautiful plum pink colour and look fierce!
We then went into the catwalk tent and saw the amazing new SS11 fashion trends fresh off London Fashion Week: William Tempest, Ossie Clark, Bora Aksu, Mark Fast, Halston, Bodyamr, Charles Anastase were all there!
After that, we went shopping for bargains and boy, did we find them!! I bought this tan coloured aviator jacket for £30 - and it had been reduced from £200!!! WOW!!
I took over 200 photos, but I cannot fit all of them into this post obviously, so here are a few of my faves...
Mother Goose and I then trotted off to China Town for a very quick bite to eat and then to the Patisserie Valerie across the road in search for some French Macaroons - they did not have any :(. But I have a fabulous day and can't wait for the 18th next year!!

A few presents: Elle magazine, Diana F+ vintage camera, LFWE goodies, Elizabeth Arden cream, nail gems, gift vouchers, juicy couture stuff, aviator jacket, etc.

Bargain finds: New bag post!

A note from Joelle...

OK, so I am one of many people who would have to seriously save in order to afford the 'It -bag' of the century: The Mulberry 'Alexa' satchel bag. I couldn't afford it (£766) so I decided to look around the web and find a fabulous alternative - and boy, did I do that!

 I bought it from a shop in eBay for only £30 brand new - such a bargain! This just proves that you can stay chic for much much less! What do you think?

You give a little love and it all comes back to you...

A note from Joelle...

HAPPY VALENTINES DAY!!

Well I guess it's that day again... The 'Single's Awareness Day' as my sister put it today. I found that really funny actually. I find it odd how people get worked up about this one day of the year, whether they have a Valentine or not. It sounds strange to say, but I know that some people actually take joy out of venting their Valentine's Day anger at cupid/the rest of the world (via social networking sites), just to make a witty point.

Friendship is real love - the people who care about you and are always there for you no matter what. To be honest, most real friends last longer that an relationships anyway!
So...BE HAPPY THIS V DAY. EAT SOME CAKE, SPREAD SOME LOVE TO EVERYONE AND BE THANKFUL FOR YOUR WONDERFUL FRIENDS!!!

Keep it real,
Joelle

Style Post 1: Loafer Heels - Yay or Nay?

A note from Joelle...
 I first came across these amazing shoes in a popular chained shop last year and now, I see  them everywhere! I thought that the old fashion loafer trend was too out outdated and would not catch on but thank God it did! The 'old-fashioned' loafer style adds a touch of vintage elegance to any outfit! Here are a few of my best finds:

This is why I love London...

One of the greatest cities in the world (In my opinion anyway). The bright lights, cultural festivals, street performers.

Quirky times...

A note from Joelle...

I have been a huge fan of vintage and kitsch jewellery for a while now and have discovered many different websites and boutiques that sell amazing pieces. One of my favourite online stores is called 'ElsieBelle'What I love about this store is that every piece is totally unique and so beautifully made, even with it's own tag name! The Elise Belle has jewellery to match every single mood you are in with it's quirky yet sophisticated trinkets. If you haven't already headed over to the website, here are a few of my favourite jewellery pieces which can also all be found on the site: http://elsiebelle.bigcartel.com/products :)

Bye for now,
