The Textured Bun

I love a bun but without a bit of texture it can sometimes look a little old fashioned. So this week I’m showing how to get the textured bun that also leaves you with hair looking great once you have taken it down!13.2.15 No 1
So if you have straightish hair like me, you need to get that tousled effect in the hair before you start to put things up.13.2.15 No 2
This can be done really easily with the BaByliss Curling Wand Pro which has a nice narrow barrel that curls the hair super fast.13.2.15 No 3 Click here to read more

What made you start blogging?
I wanted to share my enthusiasm for all things lifestyle with the world and blogging seemed the perfect outlet. I didn’t think much would come of it. I just wanted to keep a sort of online record of what’s what…and then it transformed into a different animal entirely.

How has your site evolved over the years?
It started out as a fashion news site and in the last six months has transformed into more of a personal space where I share my own interactions with the world of fashion.

What do you love most about it?
I get to be my own editor, my own boss and my own timekeeper.

Are there downsides and how do you deal with them?
Being your own boss is also the downside. Running a blog is running a business these days and I find I spend more time running the business than writing the blog – something I would have never predicted.

What advice are you most asked for?
How the blog grew.

Which post has been the most popular one so far, and do you know why?
My most popular post of all time was the post about the bag I designed for Coach. I think people were just really excited to see a blogger creating a piece with such an important and historic brand.

What are your tips for aspiring bloggers?
Work hard. Be original. Question everything.

Who are your favourite bloggers?
Mademoiselle Robot, Coco’s Tea Party, Red Carpet Fashion Awards and The Chic Geek.

Stay tuned for the second part of Emily’s interview when her next video airs in April!

4 Tips for Stronger Hair

Right about now, in the middle of winter, people often start to notice their hair getting dryer and feeling weaker. Winter weather takes its toll on hair just like it does our skin so here are 4 tips to keep it feeling strong and looking great.

Oil Your Scalp
"wella hair oil"
I am a huge believer in the theory that a healthier scalp will mean healthier hair. I see the scalp as the soil and the hair as the flowers – sounds silly but the better you treat your scalp, the more able it is to provide adequate nourishment for strong healthy hair. Click here to read more

Jessica Chastain’s Glam Waves at the Golden Globes

Jessica Chastain’s gorgeously glamorous side swept waves was definitely one of my favourite looks at the Golden Globes this year.23.1.15 No 1
This is my take on it! It’s such a beautiful and sophisticated look, but actually very simple to achieve using the BaByliss Boutique Soft Waves. Here’s how!23.1.15 No 2
I started off with just washed hair that I combed into a side parting and dried using the BaByliss Diamond Dryer. I smoothed it out with my fingers as I went. Because my hair doesn’t naturally settle in a side parting, I clipped the front section back to encourage it in the right direction.23.1.15 No 3 Click here to read more

What’s New in Contouring?

I thought to make a change, I’d do a post for you on a really hot topic in makeup right, contouring! It was big news before, but there are so many new kits and products launching soon, that it is set to be a focus for some time to come. Here are 3 new products that will help you get that Kim K look (or much more subtle if you wish!).

Laura Mercier Flawless Contouring Palette19.1.15 No 1
This kit is just gorgeous! It has been created to suit all skin tones, so even the palest of the pale can get a softly sculpted look if they want it. The cream texture is super soft and blendable and all the shades melt into the skin, leaving a very natural finish.

It’s a great value at £35. It is available at Harrods only right now but goes nationwide from February.
