How to make a statement

HOW TO MAKE A STATEMENT- THE LOW DOWN
STAND OUT FROM THE CROWD
Add a touch of colour to your wardrobe, be the one in the middle of the dance floor, do what others are afraid to do, just remember to always be true to yourself. Don't focus on what others are thinking and never explain yourself.

LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD
Are you registered to vote? Are your opinions known? Do you use your platforms to their full potential? Never let anyone take this away from you, it is your most powerful tool, use it. Say it, and mean it.

BE BOLD
Being bold does not mean you have to be the centre of attention. Make decisions and stick to your word. Be kind but honest. Be the one who inspires and influences those around you. Being bold is about risk taking, and more often than not it pays off.

MAKE YOUR ACTIONS YOUR OWN 
Take responsibility for your actions. Take pride in your work and don't be afraid to show the world how proud you are. Ambition is motivating, but being grounded keeps you striving. Keep your head out of the clouds.

ADVENTURE
Embark on an adventure, and don't get bored. Bordem leads to laziness and wander leads to exploration.

BE GRATEFUL
In everything you do show you are grateful. There is a reason you got there. Never hold a grudge, what will you gain from it besides negativity? After all Beyonce did say, 'always stay gracious, best revenge is your paper'. If you want something you will work for it no matter what gets in your way, just be grateful to those who are around you on your path to success.

Make a statement.

Do you dare? | SHOP MY LOOK

Making a statement when it comes to style is elaborate, extensive and requires experimentation. Is it worth it? Absolutely. Here are my four fail proof rules when it comes to overstepping boundaries and experimenting with your look. Whilst these are simple, and can be interpreted as you please, they may require a touch of bravery if they deviate from your comfort zone. 

Darlings, do you dare to make a statement? 

#1 Experiment with colour. Black is classic but will it stand out from the crowd?
#2 Be outrageous. Take your favourite trends off the runway and onto the streets. 
#3 Always accessorise, it can change the way an entire outfit is perceived.
#4 Embrace your look and let the world know it.

Fashion is the central aspect to this city and inevitably prime to the aesthetic of Hotel Indigo.

Eyes on the prize | SHOP THE LOOK

As you may have guessed my darlings I jetted off to Germany, one of my favourite countries in the world. Visiting Düsseldorf has been bittersweet as I spent a significant amount of my childhood growing up in this area.

Königsallee is Düsseldorfs answer to Champs Elysées with Hermès, Versace and Harry Winston all within a steps reach to each other. This is a place where
people are blissfully unaware of their surroundings. One where people come to shop, relax and enjoy
without a second thought. It's famous art district means that as you wander the streets not only do 
you come across it's flawless landscape and impeccable sculptures but also some of the most chic
outfits your eyes will ever lay on, think Commes Des Garçons takes the city. 

Whilst the hustle of Paris is constant this city emerges itself in laid back vibes during the day however, like many other European cities, comes alive at night all the way through to the next day.
After all they do say work hard, play harder my darlings and nothing is stopping you if you have earned it.

This is the place that reminds you exactly just what you are working for.
If you work hard enough you will get it, but you won't stop there.
Keep your eyes on the prize.

Make a statement

We live in a world where freedom of speech and expression is at the centre of society, despite many trying to repress it. Today’s revolutionaries are more prominent than ever and fighting for what you believe in magnifies and exemplifies with each cause.

Now, it is important to remember that you do not have to be a Political mastermind to engage with change however whatever you stand for, you stand with reason. 

‘Whatever you do will be insignificant but it is important that you do it’, Ghandi.

A fight for what you believe in doesn’t always provide you with the immediate results you desire but it paves the way for them, whether they are visible or not.  

Have you ever had something you feel so passionately about that you will defend it to the ends of the earth? 
Do you have an opinion that you are proud to express to the world?
Is there a thought that you are too scared to share? 

Regardless of your passion your opinion matters and this applies to everything you do in life. 

We always talk about expressing your personality and experimenting whether thats cause, travel, culture, style … it’s an endless list and it's in everything that you do whether you are consciously aware of it or not. 

Being bold doesn’t always mean you have to be the centre of attention, an idea that is misunderstood by many. Instead being bold is down to expression. Expression is down to you.  

You may find people telling you that your opinion does matter. This is not the truth. 
Ask yourself, are the decisions you are making to please others or are they for YOU, because they are what you believe are right? 

It's time to put up that fight.
It's time to stand for what you believe in, regardless of how you do it.
You are part of this world, and you deserve it more than anything.
It's time time to show the world how you do things. 
It's time to make a statement. 

... and i'm going to help you with just that.
Let's get it my darlings.

WEDDING FEVER | SHOP THE LOOK

Darlings, wedding season is here and it's already to die for.
Over the past decade weddings have turned from your traditional white wedding into something a little more meaningful and inevitably experimental.
So whether you are walking down an aisle covered in florals, eloping to Vegas or getting married at your local city hall the opportunities are endless and ultimately chic.

Perhaps you are shopping the new Topshop bridal collection? Or maybe inspired by Olivia Palermo's lace shorts and blue Manolo's? Or maybe you spend your days browsing Pinterest for every inch of inspiration? Weddings are all about you, so it's vital you make it everything that you dream of whether that's expressing your wanderlust desires or making history in a place you call home. 

I seek inspiration in every surrounding and find myself torn with my favourites as the next is always so different from the last. 
The details are down to you and your wedding day is your chance to place your mark on this world and inject your personality into a setting that you fabricate based on everything that you love in your life.

I recently attended a dream Spring wedding. Think florals, pastels and all your Pinterest desires merged into one. Not only did the Bride & Groom, Rebecca and James look flawless but the time and effort placed into making their wedding their very own was unprecedented. The attention to detail was like no other. From getting married in an ancient church to celebrating in a 17th Century manor house, these settings did not fall short of character and spoke for themselves. A navy and pastel green colour combination, paired with a gorgeous array of the finest spring florals provoked nothing but effortless Spring vibes. This was apparent in every inch of detail, from the table settings to the personalised plaques found throughout each destination, epitomising perfection.

I am forever talking about experimentation, and overstepping the boundaries so when it comes to your wedding day why wouldn't you do just that?
It's time to inspire, influence and succeed, a mantra we live by. 

So the next time you dream of running away to Santorini, running to the registry the next day or inviting those hundreds of guests to your castle,
make sure you do it. 
Make your thoughts a reality.

Do we have Spring fever, wedding fever ... or both?

Day dreamer X Nails Inc


Now there is no denying that I have no desire to pretend that I am fascinated by all things Unicorn, like many (unless it's the new Starbucks frappuccino we all want our hands on). HOWEVER, some things are just too good to resist.

Unicorn nails by Nails Inc. are everything. The dream duo featuring a rose shimmer and marble lilac bring our wildest fantasies to reality when it comes to a show stopping manicure. The range is completely over the top and completely unnecessary however brings experimentation into a whole new realm that is carefree yet far from understated. 

Nails Inc. are infamous for their reliable brushes and iconic bottles. Their, 'sparkle like a unicorn' range combines one of our favourite nails brands with an idea that is fun and feisty. Not only do these colours apply like a dream but their colours change in every inch of light.

The holographic presence of Dream Dust and Rainbow Wishes is complimented by its long lasting sheen and 3D pigment meaning reapplication is unnecessary. Whether worn together or individually these colours will never fail to impress. 

If you are seeking something dramatic, powerful and ultimately ravishing these are for you my darlings. After all Spring fling has begun, embrace it.
