Niki Pilkington

25 Sep

This is a name you might not have heard of, but you should get used to it because Niki Pilkington is a super-talented, super-stylish, welsh fashion illustrator. She works between her studios in North Wales and London and has drawn beautiful, fashionable pictures of clothes and girls for Topshop, Dolce and Gabbanna, Ted Baker, MTV, fashion magazines and more. Every girl should be jealous of Niki, especially as she has met famous people to draw their children’s shoes, she has been interviewed often by magazines and websites, she’s been to London Fashion Week and seen some models on the catwalk. There’s no denying it; her job is so cool! To know more about her and to see some of her work, head to Nikipilkington.com or Nikipilkington.blogspot.com. She even has bags, diaries and notebooks of her work on them on sale on the net! The drawings below are only some of her many pictures of girls wearing pretty clothes, and she adds writing to the images, like welsh sayings and idioms. Awesome!

Violent Lips

16 Sep

Seen on celebs such as Jessie J, the Violent Lips wraps are a new, cool trend that you have to be confident and daring to pull off as everyone will be staring at the crazy ‘lipgloss’ on your lips! But why not where them? Fashion and beauty are supposed to be fun so buy your Violent Lips from Violentlips.com or stores like Boots or Selfridges. From the rainbow coloured style to the cheetah to little red and white hearts to the South African flag, these wraps are perfect for a party or a special occasion and will sure to get you noticed! Two of my favourites, pictured here, is The Gold Glitterati and The Pink Giraffe, both for £9.28. But some wraps are priced lower, such as £4.96 and £6.20. Mwah!

Remember Me

11 Sep

On September 11th, 2001, thousands of good, innocent people lost their lives when the Twin Towers were hit by an aeroplane. It was one of the most traumatic happening in the history of the world, and today we must remember those who were killed. That’s why I thought of this film: Remember Me, starring Robert Pattinson, Emilie de Ravin and Pierce Brosnan. It is only £3.82 on Play.com, and so a perfect, cheap buy!  It is a superb romantic drama based on the lives of two lovers; Tyler, who’s parents have split because of his brother’s suicide, and Ally, who lives every day to the full after witnessing her mother’s murder. Set in 2001 at the time of the Twin Towers’ attack, Remember Me is shocking, thrilling, emotional and an eye-opener for everyone over the age of 12. Yes, you will cry, but you will also experience how it was like for those poor people on September 11th, 2001.

Slipper Mania

10 Sep

Surprisingly, slippers have become a sort of footwear that you can wear out and about, not only in your bedroom. Perhaps it sounds odd at first but when you see the slippers they have on sale in shops, you’ll fall in love! Everyone are starting to wear these slippers and I really like them! Even celebs enjoy wearing them, like Rita Ora in her cool red and black studded ones, or Alexa Chung in her cute cat ones (I also love Alexa’s outfit here; casual but perfect like always.) To copy Alexa’s fab style, I have found a similar pair of cat slippers on Missguided.co.uk for £23.99! Also, these are other three of my fave slippers: leopard print ones from Matalan for only £10, light pink studded ones from Republic for £25, and houndstooth ones from New Look for £15.99.

      

     

          

Too Cool for School

9 Sep

It’s that time of year again when school, college or work starts. Oh the joy! There will be competition between the girls for the best bag, of course, so here are some of my favourite high street picks. I think rucksacks and satchels are the best buys and this brown leather rucksack from Matalan is only £12 and perfect for school. A colourful satchel is a fun, unique option and this colour-blocking one from Daisystreet.co.uk is £24.99 and different to what anyone else may have. But if you want a big bag to carry all your school stuff, then a rucksack would be best and this heart print one from Accessorize is cute and practical for £32. Lastly, a simple choice for a school bag is this black satchel from Chelseadoll.co.uk that is £25 but looks so much more! Oh, so cool.
