A Guide to Living Like a Celebrity in 2020

Ever wondered what it would be like to live like a celebrity? Maybe as your favourite singer or actor? Well look no further, in this guide we’ll look at ideas you could implement to do just that. 

Even if it’s just for a short time, everyone can live like a celebrity by following these helpful hints and tips. 

Book a Luxury Holiday

Why not try a destination you wouldn’t usually go for? You don’t have to spend big to get a luxury holiday. Take a cruise, for example; you can find some fantastic deals on luxury cruises. Holidays with Celebrity Cruises offers exceptional culinary experiences, top destinations and the world at your service. 

If that doesn’t give you the celebrity experience then nothing will. Imagine it; you’re on a lavish ship being ferried to some of the world’s most exclusive destinations while being treated like royalty. That would definitely be classed as living the high life! 

Drive Luxury… on a budget!

You’d be surprised at what luxury car deals are out there. You don’t need to be a millionaire to drive a car that oozes style. After all, new doesn’t always mean better, and this is especially true when it comes to cars.  

You can even get a luxury car on finance, where you pay a set monthly price. You could bring home a BMW or Jaguar that sits on your driveway or curbside! Do the calculations and see if you can stretch your budget, as nothing makes a statement like a swanky car – new or used!

Mix-up your Style

This one is pretty simple. Have a look at your wardrobe and then compare it to some of the clothes your favourite celebrity wears. Can you take any tips off them? 

Go unique. Go outrageous. And you don’t have to blow your budget on designer clothes to do this. Check charity shops or places like TK Maxx. You’ll find a treasure trove of brilliant items on sale that could mix-up your style. Charity shops often offer some great vintage pieces that will make a statement. 

According to Elite Daily, 80 percent of fashion is wearing something outrageous and just saying, “This? Oh, this is fashion.” So why not do just that? All the celebrities are doing it, why can’t you? 

Look Polished for Less

Never be afraid to go high-street to get your clothes and makeup. You can grab some great high-street makeup and beauty products for very reasonable prices these days. And they do just as good of a job as the expensive brands. So, you can always look great for less. 

Appearing clean and polished is an inexpensive way to look classy! Hold your head up high and be proud of the way you look, like your favourite celebrity does. 

And Lastly

Be confident! Dress in your new style, take some selfies of your getaway and post them to social media. If you want that celebrity experience, then go outside your comfort zone. It’s your life, live it. 

7 Tips For Fashionistas Who Want To Wear Shorts This Winter

When you think summer fashion, you probably have shorts on top of your wish list. These garments have a cool and comfortable vibe that makes them just apt for the sweltering months of the year. Obviously, most of the fashionistas end up packing away their shorts when the winter sets in. But is there a way you can wear your favorite garment even when it is freezing cold? Yes, there is! This is a great thing is for women who want to flaunt their shorts during winter as well. Here are some style tips to help.

Wear a pair of tights underneath

The biggest problem with wearing shorts in winter is that your legs are uncovered and you may feel very cold. But this should not stop you from making a style statement with the garment that you love the most. Just wear a pair of warm tights underneath and rock the winter look like a style diva. In fact, a pair of leather shorts worn with black tights beneath makes a great outfit for a night out in the winter season.

Step up your style with boots

Another way to accessorize your shorts and make them winter-ready is by teaming them up with a pair of high boots. Try knee-length boots made in leather or suede if you want to feel warm and look stylish. What’s more, you can wear warm woolen socks inside and beat the chill in the air. The best part is that your socks will not be visible at all and neither will interfere with your fashionable and chic look.

Pair with a long coat

Wouldn’t it be a smart idea to pair your shorts with a stylish long coat? You can pick one in tweed or wool and slip it over a tee and your favorite pair of shorts. The ensemble can be worn day and night to give you all the comfort you need and add to your style quotient as well. Besides a classic long black coat, you can also try playing with colors such as red, pink and green with the piece you choose for layering.

Flaunt the denim look

If you are a true denim lover, you need not pack away your denim shorts for the season. In fact, this often happens with women who want to wear denim all year round. They get confined just to jeans during the colder months. You can still step out in stylish denim short shorts that you love so much. Wear it over black stockings and team with a simple pullover in a vibrant color that adds an element to your winter look. If you love the denim-on-denim trend, add your favorite denim jacket to create an ensemble to die for!

Opt for the right fabric

While it is a good idea to repurpose your summer shorts for the fashionable winter look, you can opt for ones made in warm fabric. There are plenty of styles in tweed and wool shorts that are specifically crafted for the winter months. You can look around online or in stores and probably find some great stuff. Layer the warm shorts with leggings to keep yourself extra warm, particularly during the chilly evenings.

Go with long length

Another good idea for wearing shorts in winter is by picking long length pieces instead of just sticking to the short shorts in your summer wardrobe. Like the ones made in warm fabric specifically for winters, you may also find long shorts for the season. Opt for the longer style that you can carry even without additional warm layers underneath. Long length shorts make a great option for winter day wear as you can easily bear the winds but you will surely have to layer them in the evening.

Don’t just overdo the layering

When it comes to wearing shorts during winter, the best advice is not to overdo. If you are willing to experiment with the winter look, be ready to test your endurance. You may be able to bear the cold weather more easily than you think. Wearing too many pieces of thermals beneath the shorts may actually defeat the very purpose of wearing them in winter. Rather, just try to start with minimal layering and see how it works for you.

Wearing shorts in winter is easier than you think, provided that you are willing to experiment with your look. So just don’t pack away your summer favorites this season as you can still rock the winter look with them!

A Complete Style Guide For an Office Party

Office parties are the perfect occasion to let your hair down and have some fun at work. Whether it’s the annual Christmas or Diwali party or a drink with your colleagues to celebrate a deal, times like these give you a real window of opportunity to express yourself, especially when it comes to your sense of style. The gathering is not only a reason to blow off some steam but also to make a lasting impression outside of work. Whether you’re having a party at the office or celebrating success at your favourite bar, dressing well will help you stay on top of your game. Dress to impress with our curated office party style guide.

Outfits

The first step is to decide what you’re wearing. Tricky, we know. Here are some styling ideas to put together a dazzling ensemble.

 

  • Choose Your Attire Based on the Occasion

 

If you’re having a get-together Diwali party at the office, sport an elegant kurti for women. Accentuate your look with a pair of silver oxidised jhumkis and a pair of beaded kolhapuris for a traditional touch.

If it’s a Christmas party, get into the spirit of fun and merriment. Keep things simple with a quirky green and red Christmas sweater over your white shirt and a pencil-fit skirt. Add some funky Christmas-themed accessories into the mix and give an otherwise formal work outfit a casual, breezy touch.

 

 

  • Keep it Business Casual

 

If you’re heading out with colleagues to celebrate the success of closing a deal, it’s important to dress the part. For a cocktail party, opt for a silk or satin gown. The fabrics will add an air of sophistication whilst keeping your look professional. Add finishing touches with dainty gold jewelery and a pair of neutral pumps.

If it’s a casual get-together at a bar, dress in an outfit that you can take from day to night. Keep it smart with party dresses in solid colours. A classic LBD, when paired with a cropped blazer, can work as a major power look. Ditch the blazer for the party to create a chic, effortless look.

Hair and Makeup

Once you’ve nailed the outfit, the next step is to focus on hair and makeup.

 

  • Party Casual Looks

 

When putting on makeup, keep it minimal. A nude lipstick with rosy cheeks will work with most outfits. This will give you a natural flush and add a classic, chic vibe.

Let your hair undone with a basic middle parting. If you want to look extra corporate-chic, gel your hair. Short-haired women can opt for beach waves for an edgy touch.

 

 

  • Glam Up Looks

 

When meeting high-powered clients for a cocktail party, your look can be more experimental. Choose between dark smokey eyes and bright scarlet lips. Don’t end up doing both though; you’ll just end up looking over-the-top.

Go with a simple up-do that will complement your look. A sleek low bun with a party gown is a glam but elegant look. A half up-do like twisted braids and flowing hair at the back is perfect for a more understated, fresh look.

Now that you have the best styling tips for your office party, charm the pants off your colleagues and unveil your fashionable self!

The “Roadster” in particular has become my “go to”- if it’s clean, I’m wearing it.

The “Cuz She Said So” was also comfortable and preformed well, and kept it all together.  The company is so passionate about their bras, they even have a program to help get them to girls in underprivileged communities.

Great Gifts for an Active Mom

This time of year, I’m always seeing lists about the best gifts for mom. See, I’m even making one. But the truth is, not all moms are alike, and you know best your mom’s personality. A “makeup and jewelry” kind of mom? Flowers, chocolate? Maybe she wants to sleep in and get a massage. (Hint, that’s pretty much everyone, all the time.) Some of that stuff can be sort of a “cop-out”, just going through the motions. Your mom did (and likely still does) a lot for you- make her feel special on days meant to celebrate her. (Dads, if you have very young kids, you are in charge here. Do something besides that macaroni necklace they made in school, yeah?)

As an active mom myself, and one that wears pretty much zero makeup or fussy things like that, I wouldn’t personally love a bottle of perfume or nail polish. I also try to be as eco-friendly as possible, and my family knows that’s important to me. I’m guessing to a lot of other moms out there as well.

Since many “idea” lists focus on candy and makeup, we here at [email protected] thought there should be one with other options out there. This list is for the active mom, eco friendly mom, who is a little less traditional, but pretty cool in her own rights.

Sand Cloud, an environmentally aware company that donates %10 of it’s profits to #SaveTheFishes (help protect and preserve marine life) offers a wide array of items that are sustainable, adorable, and environmentally friendly. From super useful items mom will love like reusable glass bottles with beautiful and fun designs on them to metal straws that you can take anywhere (avoid those unnecessary plastic ones that end up in the nostrils of poor sea turtles and washed up on beaches), soft towels with lovely artwork, or organic tees and tanks, there is something your earth conscious mom will love.  These items are not only beautiful, but useful. In addition, a percentage from each purchase is given to a charity- I can’t think of a mother that wouldn’t be pleased that Mother Earth is also gifted on this special day.  Visit https://www.sandcloud.com to see their collections, and pick out a perfect gift for the moms in your life.

reusable bottle

Yoga lover? Me too, we hit the mat almost daily, it is one of the best ways to center yourself and have a few minutes of peace. It’s fantastic for both mind and body, and if you haven’t yet tried it out, there’s always today. The hype is there for a reason. It’s good stuff. Slightly Buddha is a yoga company for yoga lovers, by yoga lovers. The items on the site are simple, pretty, and express the ideas of living a zen lifestyle. They make, as they describe them, “well made, cute clothes” that offer value to the customer. As the owner describes the collection, “Slightly Buddha is a manifestation of my love for yoga, art and clothes.”  The clothing is soft and comfortable. Pay attention to sizing, as I find that they don’t run typically. Some say that they run large, so you will get the “heads up”, so to speak. Others don’t mention, but you can tell that they run slim. Joggers, for example, are less loose then any others I’ve had, and fit more like leggings, which you can see in the photos. They are perfect for a yoga class, however, so that may be why the design is different. The tanks are also a slim fit, but are a nice feel. Pay attention to the photos and the reviews, they are honest and helpful.  Visit https://www.slightlybuddha.com to see what strikes you- your mom will love the graceful designs that are easy to mix and match, and go from the studio to the couch to errand running and beyond.

yoga gear

Title Nine has everything the active woman needs, from running gear to swimwear to undergarments and more. Dresses that move with you, skirts that shake the rain off, leggings that actually stay in place. I can’t say enough good things about the company, which is run by amazing women for women, so they know what women want and need. It may be unseemly to talk about getting mom a bra for Mother’s Day, so maybe choose an awesome dress or sweater, and give her a gift card so she can choose her own, because these will be the only ones she will want from then on. I recently tried out the Roadster Convertible Underwire Bra and the Cuz She Say’s So Underwire Bra and I have to say, I’m in love. The :Roadster” in particular has become my “go to”- if it’s clean, I’m wearing it. Comfortable and keeping everything where it needs to be, even during vigorous workouts, this is the one to beat in my opinion. The “Cuz She Said So” was also comfortable and preformed well, but it was hard to compare to the “Roadster”.  The company is so passionate about their bras, they even have a program to help get them to girls in underprivileged communities. They know it’s hard to preform your best when you are being hindered- and that’s pretty cool. They do a lot of good work in the community. They even use “real life” models, who have regular jobs and live “regular” lives, no retouching the already impossible to achieve looks of supermodels here, and I love that. This company is all about celebrating women, and any mom would love that. Visit https://www.titlenine.com and see what mom would appreciate.

Healthy Hair As You Travel- Top Tips

Travelling is a time to explore new horizons either alone or with your friends and family, but for many caring for your hair whilst spending days on end in the sun can be a challenge. With people experiencing hair loss as a by-product of overexposure to the sun and sea water it can lead to other issues such as breakages or in severe cases hair loss. When experiencing hair loss many people will often opt for natural alternatives, to help the hair heal naturally but with some hair loss being rather drastic the cost of a hair transplant procedure is worth paying to have the hairline fully restored. This is the perfect solution for those that are experiencing this level of hair loss however, there are a number of other options that you can use to care for your hair if your hair has not been experiencing this level of fall out and we have the answers here.

When travel you are exposed to a number of elements such as humidity and heat but most importantly the chlorine that is present in swimming pools. When you have been swimming for a long amount of time it is vital that you use plenty of conditioner on your hair to nourish the ends and keep the hair from becoming brittle. This will be a godsend particularly if you are spending long amounts of time travelling as your hair can become difficult to maintain the longer that you travel for. By keeping a single conditioner and shampoo on hand you can ensure that your hair is kept in check throughout your travel time.

Invest In One Shampoo For The Whole Trip

Another reason to invest in a shampoo throughout the course of your trip is that your hair will be used to this formula and using the free samples can lead to your hair becoming brittle or cause an allergic reaction. By using the travel sizes of your favourite shampoo, you can ensure that there are no changes to your hair and you can stick to a normal hair care regime. If you have a specialist brand for your hair that is not in a travel size simply transfer some of the product into a 100ml clear plastic bottle. This will allow you to get the product on the flight without breaking any restrictions.  

Remember A Hair Tie

When travelling a hair tie is the one thing that you should never leave without. By having this kept around your wrist or in your bag you can tie your hair up when in the heat. This will also protect your hair from becoming matted when swimming in the ocean as your hair will be tied up in one place. This can also be used for other elements such as opening jars or fixing a broken zipper on jeans making this a very successful accessory in more ways than one.

Make The Most Of Your Natural Hair

Travelling is a time to be enjoying the location you are in, not worrying about your hair. So by learning a few simple hairstyles to keep your hair healthy whilst looking nice, you can enjoy your action-packed day without needing to adjust your hair every five minutes.

How To Make Your Winter Wear Look Chic

Here in the UK, we are getting ready to brace ourselves for the much colder weather that is fast approaching. December is almost here and with it the long, dark days and freezing cold temperatures. However, as you wrap up warm this winter, this does not mean that you will also have to compromise on your style and there are lots of ways in which you can still look chic over the winter season. Here, we are taking you through our top tips as to how you can make your winter wear look chic this year and into the next.  

 

Play With Proportions

The winter season is the perfect time to play around with your proportions. For example, why not layer a gilet over an oversized sweater? You can then pair this up with some fabulous high waisted trousers and a big roomy coat. These roomy coats are very on trend right now and we would recommend going for a fun teddy bear coat as this is the perfect coat to keep you warm this winter whilst also looking chic.

 

Include Colour

Winter can be an extremely dreary month and we tend to reflect this in our clothing with darker colours. However, bold and bright colours are not just simply reserved for the summer months as adding a bold colour in the winter can really add a touch of warmth, whilst looking stylish. Go bolder than you would normally dare to and pair up some thick and cosy gloves with a bright fleece or coat.

 

Go For Volume

Looking to get the va va voom effect this winter season? Then these are some fantastic top tips that you need to follow. We would recommend pairing an oversized sweater with a voluminous puffer coat to really make a statement. Ditch your trousers with this look and instead opt for some black tights and a pair of cool statement boots to really finish off your outfit.

 

Invest In Boots

You will be spending almost every day of winter in boots and so it is important that you invest in a chic and stylish pair. Biker ankle boots are a staple and the ankle boots found here at Dune London are a great collection to browse through if you want to stay on trend. There are lots of amazing designs for you to choose from on Dune, so no matter whether you want a plain pair of black heeled ankle boots or something a little more edgy and cool with buckles and diamantes, you can find what you need. These ankle boots can then be teamed up with everything from jeans and jumper to your favourite winter dress.

 

Layer Up

Winter is the perfect season to layer up as much clothing as you possibly can, so really commit to this look and load everything on. Pop on your sweater, pop a fleecy vest over top, and then finish off with a big coat. You can then throw on a pair of leggings, some chunky socks and combat boots. Gloves and a hat will finish off your outfit and keep it looking chic.

 

Mix And Match Textures

Over the upcoming winter months, we would recommend elevating your cold weather look with a pair of chic leather leggings. Leather leggings are fantastic as not only are they incredibly stylish and look amazing, they also keep you warm when the temperature drops. Mix up your textures and team up your leather leggings with a cable knit jumper to create an edgy but cool look.

 

Winter is almost here, so if your closet is not yet ready for the fast-approaching cold weather, now is the time to invest! Fill your closet with these fun fashion trends that are sure to help you stay looking chic, but warm over winter.
