Ok don’t get me wrong here…
1) I love Jessica Biel. She is an unbelievably beautiful woman and I usually adore her sense of style.
2) JT and her are such a great and fun couple
3) I thought their wedding photos looked amazing; a stunning romantic location in Italy and overall it looked lots of fun!
…But sorry what was shethinking with that pink, fluffy, prom style wedding gown?
The Olde Bell is not a hotel where the rooms dominate, but where the common spaces are the heartbeat of the place. It has a lovely pub area where you can sit down for a casual lunch or enjoy tea and cakes or a glass of wine by the fireplace.
After arriving at the hotel we checked into our room, dived onto the bed and did a big ‘whoooopie we’re here!’ and then headed downstairs to enjoy a delicious parsnip soup with freshly baked breads in the pub.
The Modern Coaching Inns rooms are designed by the celebrated designer Ilse Crawford (portfolio includes Soho House New York, Grand Hotel Stockholm, Cecconis and more). I loved the design and style of the hotel; a perfect mix of old and new. Old beams, wooden floors, wool and fluffy blankets and modern furniture. The bathroom featured an amazing claw foot bath and lots of Aesop goodies!
Here a recent outfit of the day featuring my beloved new burgundy jeans! When I was in New York City I fell in love with the shop Aritzia. Aritzia is a women’s fashion boutique that offers a mix of beautifully designed clothes that are on trend, high quality, and good value. They have boutiques across the US and Canada. Me and my flat mate spent quite a lot of time in their dressing rooms trying on clothes and from there deciding how much damage this shop would do to our bank accounts because we seroiusly wanted to buy it all! This scarf is one of the items I just had to have, the colours are perfect for fall and a girl can never have too many scarfs right?

For you curvy ladies out there, check out this great little video by Simply Be showcasing their latest Anna Scholz collection that is available online now. I think it’s great to see an increase in fashion retailers offering a wide range of fashionable and on-trend items for sizes 12-36. Because no matter what size you are you should be able to feel beautiful and find clothing that make you feel amazing and confident.
I was also happy to read recently that Australian model Robyn Lawley has become the first plus-sized model ever to score a major campaign for high-end fashion designer Ralph Lauren. In the past, Ralph Lauren has been highly criticised for airbrushing its models to unrecognisable versions of thin. I mean these beautiful girls below for example have been photoshopped so much they look alien-like….
The 23 year old plus-sized model is rapidly making a name for herself in the fashion industry! Robyn Lawley’s curves have already been featured in Vogue Italia and French Elle and now Ralph Lauren’s move to book the size 12 model is a hugely positive step forward to reshape people’s ingrained thinking that bigger can’t be beautiful. I mean look at her….this girl is STUNNING!
I spotted the following quote on the Simply Be Pinterest Page: “I never worry about diets. The only carrots that interest me are the number you get in a diamond.” ~ Mae West. Haha I love it.
