A step back in time with Vogue

The magazine I can't do without each month is Vogue. I do hate to part with my old copies as it's fun looking back through them seeing how the trends have changed over time so I try to keep them for a while then I recycle them. 

When I was in America and in Paris, I made sure I bought a copy of  the American and Paris Vogue to keep. I think it's a nice way of remembering my fun trip! I do regret not getting a copy of Italian Vogue when I was in Milan, I know you can get the different editions in the UK, although for me, it's just not the same as when I purchase them on my travels. 

Check out how the Vogue Covers have evolved over the years:-











My how time has changed. The main thing that strikes you is with the early covers, it's only the image that does the talking where as now the cover image plays background to the various slogans that grab your attention.

Being a true Vogue fan, to my delight I recently discovered that similar to the Elle Collections publication that a Vogue Collections publication exists too. At £24.95 your bank balance will be glad it only comes out twice a year for a Spring/Summer edition and Autumn/Winter edition but I can tell you it's worth every penny (even better when my Fiancee treated me to it!!)

Vogue Collections Spring/Summer 2011

Vogue Collections Autumn/Winter 2011

Elle Collections Autumn Winter 2011

The Autumn Winter style bible is now on sale! I've been getting the Elle Style collections for the past few years and I love it. If you haven't heard of Elle Collections then basically its a collectable guide to the seasons catwalk shows. Elle collections has two editions throughout the year with your Spring/Summer guide then Autumn/Winter guide and both are packed with pictures and reports from the catwalks, the seasons hottest trends and who wore what on the front row, basically this is one style guide you can't do without!

Get down to your local newsagents now and grab a copy!

Mr Porter

NET-A-PORTER has to be one of my favourite online shopping destinations as they really do have it all (I especially love it when they have a sale on!)

Mr Porter, the new mens style destination was launched earlier this year. Not only is this online store packed with current on-trend clothes, shoes and accessories, they have the 'Style Directory' section where you can get inspiration from various style icons like Steve McQueen and valuable style advice on Black Tie, Seasonal dressing and storage............Lets just say it's the style bible for all fashionable men out there!

So, if you haven't already logged onto Mr Porter, what are you waiting for............oh and the sales on now too so it shouldn't be as tough on your wallet!

The New Season's Alexander McQueen Scarf

Wrap up this Autumn / Winter with this trendy wool scarf from Alexander McQueen's fall collection. 
Unlike the original classic skull scarfs, this navy scarf only features one large iconic McQueen skull in a clean, contrasting grey shade.

The sizing of the scarf is around 26" wide by 80" in length so it's a great long scarf to keep you warm although priced at £260 it is a luxury winter treat!

Glasgow's Vintage Gem

If you are a vintage collector and haven't yet been into Mr Ben's Vintage store in Glasgow then you really are missing out. 
The store is packed full of quirky vintage pieces. From 1960 dresses to military jackets this store has it all. 
The prices are really reasonable too. I recently saw a nice army green ribbed knit jumper for just £10!! Ideal for wearing in the colder months with my skinny jeans, heels and some vibrant red lipstick! In fact, I forgot about that, I must take a look in to see if they still have it.

Egyptian Magic Cream


I have seen this Egyptian Magic Cream feature in a lot of magazines recently. To see what all the fuss was about I had a look on the website (they are named to the main stockist in the UK of this cream) and here's what they say about it:-

"This must-have multi-purpose moisturing cream improves your complexion, heals scars and bruises, relieves chapped skin, leaves your hair with a lustrous sheen, and can be used to combat many other skin ailments" 

Priced at £29 for 118ml, if this cream does what it says on the tub, then it sounds like it's  a must have product. 

This cream has an ever-growing celeb following including Kate Hudson, Rachel Zoe and Madonna. 

To learn more about this cream and its followers visit: -


Red Robin

Take a look at these beauties by Alexander McQueen
See in Autumn / Winter 2011 in these gorgeous Fire Engine Red ankle boots called 'Robin'. 
I have also seen these boots  in a classic Navy and a Barbie pink, both of which are stunning, however who can say no to Fire Engine Red! These will look beautiful with your Little Black Dress or with your jeans, a knitted jumper and some red lips!
