It has never been easier to make a statement with fashion, Nail art is proving to be ever popular and a trend that looks to be staying with us for a while.

We are all aware, when it comes to accessorizing, the finishing touches are often the most important, it’s often the small things that can make a big difference to any look.  Wearing a colour popping  fabulous pair of shoes, or a statement necklace is enough to transform a little black dress, from simple to unforgettable in a flash.  Bright red lips made popular in recent times by singers, Gwen Steffani and Xristina Aguilera, both famed for being trend setting fashionistas will glam up any daytime look, in one swipe of a lip brush.  This season we have seen a creative theme across the board with clothes, makeup and shoes,  but the most popular is right there at our fingertips, Nail art.

The colour choices we have  to adorn our nails in is infinite, but now ladies, its time to go that one step further, our nails have become a blank canvas for imagination, colour, and art.

A trend that was only once possible to achieve by taking ourselves to the nail salon, and most likely costing us a small fortune, has now become a trend that we can experiment with, in the comfort of our homes.  More and more labels and cosmetics companies, are being brave and producing a range of nail art products made easy for us to use at home. From a simple high shine metallic silver or gold nail colour, from the likes of Benefit and Channel, to art pens, from Sally Hanson, and L’oreal, which have slim tips, making it easy for us to add a splash of colour, using polka dots and stripes, and lets not forget the magic of the nail foil, Rio nail products and Barry M have a range of intricate patterns already printed on a thin foil that easily coats your nail leaving your nails look like they have had a professional makeover.

The possibilities are endless, from chic to grunge, sweet to quirky, there are no holds barred when it comes to ideas, we have seen nails transformed into strawberries, tuxedo’s, and even computer game characters.

So whatever the occasion, whatever your style, be bold, get those fingernails popping.


WHEN the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge formally open The FA National Football Centre at St. George’s Park in Staffordshire today (October 9th) it will mark the hard work of head groundsman Alan Ferguson and his 12 staff to get 12 pitches to a peak level of perfection.

Set in National Forest, the site covers 330 acres and includes two hotels, a sports science facility and FA offices. The 12 pitches include 10 natural and two synthetic . . . and the synthetic indoor facility is the largest in the UK.

Alan, formerly Head Groundsman of Ipswich Town FC, has masterminded the three stages of development -construction, operational and completion.

“It has been an enormous project to co-ordinate all of the grass areas as well as the utilities, floodlighting and irrigation but we have come through the construction side and are now in the operational phase,” says Alan.

St. Georges Park is unique in that it offers four different pitch profiles; a Desso GrassMaster (grass plus artificial fibres), plus four fibresand, five natural turf and two 3G synthetic surfaces.

“Since the initial renovation the pitches have not been affected particularly by the poor weather as they are well constructed and well-drained,” says Alan. “The worst areas are the surroundings which have been too wet to fully landscape.” To make the project run smoothly Alan targeted specific companies and suppliers to work with. These companies were cor reliability, back-up support and expertise.
Kate and wills arrived in style by helicopter, and met the England foot all squad before opening the stadium, they then enjoyed an historical match on the new pitch. Kate wore a beautiful grey coat from one of her favourite stores reiss.

Top tips to make the most of your wardrobe this spring.   With the clocks going forward this weekend to welcome the start of spring, now is the perfect time to delve into your wardrobe to rediscover clothes from seasons gone by.  Research by home furnishing experts IKEA reveals that on average Brits are hoarding £1,212 worth of clothes in their wardrobes and the official arrival of spring on 21st March is the perfect time to uncover these hidden gems. Despite having wardrobes filled with the latest fashion, almost half of Brits claim to be bored with their clothes and only 3% say they feel excited about choosing a different outfit each day. A third also admit to wearing only 10% of their outfits, resulting in £1,090 worth of clothes left hanging on the rails untouched. According to the survey, we are not making the most of the clothes we already own and the lack of excitement around the contents of our wardrobes is due to poor organisation, as almost half of the nation describes the state of their wardrobe as ‘unorganised chaos’. Almost a quarter admit to grabbing the first thing that comes to hand each morning with a further 23% rotating the same old trusted outfits over and over again.  There are simple, affordable steps that can get your clothes in order this spring.

Bedrooms expert Pippa Swain commented, “Our research shows that despite having a wealth of outfits to choose from, Brits are often left feeling frustrated and uninspired by the contents of their wardrobes. Instead of buying new clothes, money savvy Brits should invest in storage solutions that help rediscover the items they once loved. ”

Grace Woodward

Celebrity stylist Grace Woodward has teamed up with IKEA to give some top tips on how to spring clean and reorganise your wardrobe chaos, she comments: “Just as you have many different roles to play in a day, so does your wardrobe. It needs to organise your clothes, hang them properly, show off your best bits and keep all those things you’d rather forget cleverly hidden away.. The key to great styling and feeling confident about what you wear all starts with your wardrobe – the home of your fabulous fashion and source of inspiration”.

Grace Woodard’s Top Tips for getting the most out of your wardrobe:

1. Clarity is Key: One of the worst wardrobe habits is hoarding clothes that we never wear, I recommend clearing out your wardrobe every year considering the season coming.  If it doesn’t fit or can’t be worked it into an outfit then you need to get rid!

 2. Hang with pride: Once you have de-cluttered the next step is reorganising! It’s important to make the most  of the space within your wardrobe, never over fill – you don’t have to hang everything. .

3. You Are Your Canvas: Making a great outfit is like painting, you are using colour and texture to create something interesting to look at. People think they don’t have time but if you know where to reach in and grab those little extras like accessories then your look becomes more interesting.

4. Kick Off: I encourage people to have a shoe to suit every mood, but we are emotional multifaceted creatures and so the shoe collection can get quite large. Shoe racks and boxes are the key to footloose and fancy free self-expression – a total must for good shoe care too.   Boxes with clear fronts, help keep dust away and make it easy to choose the right pair for your outfit.

summer is on its way-apparently- so we had better get our summer wardrobes in order.

MUI MUI spring/summer 2012

The catwalks of London, Paris and New York fashion week, showed as it’s  usual an

MULBERRY spring/summer 2012

eclectic array of fashions, from a collection of designers, but a few trends are shining out already, and are definitely being translated into the high street stores.

Lace fabrics, and single prints grand enough to use as statement wallpaper are the biggest shout this summer, and this year the catwalks seemed to take us back to the two piece and layered look, so skirts, trousers and blouses, dresses with jackets, and dresses with design separation at the waist.

The lace trend is the biggest of them all this season, and the more intricate the better, Channel, Mui Mui, and Vera Wang all show lace in their collections, and it can now be seen in the hight street stores including at, Zara, H&M, New Look and Next.

single prints were scattered throughout most of the catwalk collections, and bring us a bit of class and glamour to our wardrobes this summer.

GUCCI summer 2012

The Channel and Gucci collections were full of two piece outfits, making the waist a focal point, and again the high street has picked up this trend pretty quick and filled its shelves with blouses, jackets, tailored pants and pencil skirts. So get mix and matching ladies, and you won’t go wrong.
