John Legend and Sam Smith duet for Comic relief

Two of my favourite singers doing a duet!! It gave me goosebumps AND its for a good cause, they will perform the track live in march the 13th at Comic Relief in London so put it in your diaries! Smith says,

I recently visited a Comic Relief-funded project in my hometown which supports the young LGBT community in London. I’m extremely proud that my single will help raise money for projects like this and many others in the UK and across Africa.

Amazing ❤

Nine West

Nine West’s gorgeous SS15 launch was a breath of fresh air and really got us in the mood for Spring. The terrace was transformed into a summery garden adorned with fabulous women’s shoes. Whatever the occasion, we love that Nine West is sure to have something suitable, be it wedding shoes, office shoes, party wedges or a cute pair of summer sandals. The dancers injected more fun into the event and the key trend pieces certainly did the same for Nine West’s SS15 collection.

The La Feme theme had great pieces for a night out on the town. Stiletto spikes embellished with crystals or the statement 3D florals  were mesmerizing. The Apprentice style had great shoes for the office or to complete a classic look, they were definitely our favourite and we could not get enough of our customised pair pictured below initialled Z.B. The World Tour pieces definitely spoke to the traveller within, the braided details and buckled booties certainly had an artisanal touch. The Exhibitionist shoes were exactly that, loud and screaming for all eyes on them, they were like leather and canvas Toms shoes, the prints and playful slip-ons will be sure have you standing out from the crowd. We enjoyed trying on the array of hats, if you still haven’t found your head-gear for the races, head to Nine West!

The Cove Rotana

I spent an amazing day at The Cove Rotana in Ras Al Khaimah, it was blissful! Each villa has its own pool and the resort has bigger shared pools as well, the infinity pool was stunning and the backdrop of the Arabian Gulf was just divine. Walking around the resort, you feel as though you are in a Spanish or Italian Town on the seaside. You walk through the cobbled streets lined with villas to get to the restaurants, swimming pools or to make your way to the beach. A lot cheaper then 5 star beach resorts in Dubai and I also thought it was nicer than most of them! I would highly recommend a stay there if you are in RAK! Here are some snaps:

Love Has No Labels

Earlier this year I posted this song Same Love in the music tab saying how much I love the lyrics for it and that we should be more accepting and less judgemental. I love how this video demonstrates it perfectly! Have a great weekend everyone!

Modcloth Swimwear

It’s always a good excuse to get ready for summer with some sexy swimwear! We have found a fabulous online store, Modcloth, which has the most gorgeous 60’s inspired swimming costumes. Actually they have an amazing collection of vintage inspired clothes but we fell head over heels for the swimsuits. The designs are really flattering and accommodate all shapes and sizes, we love the high waisted bikinis, ruched tankini’s and cute dress costumes and they even have plus sized swimwear which is a bonus! We love a little modesty and these classy numbers are right down our street, we love what they have done with the one piece bathing suits too. Here are some of our favourite pieces:

Timberland SS15 Fashion Show

We ended February on a complete high at the Timberland SS15 Fashion show in the desert. It was rumoured to be something like a desert safari  with the slogan Lets Get Lost and dress-code being “rugged traveller”. We were all taken there in coaches and as we approached, our coach buzzed with talk of people wondering where this sandy road led to? We soon reached a very rustic resort, however it wasn’t quite as rustic as a camp which was great. The old style buildings added a touch of Arabian Heritage and made it more luxurious while keeping it authentic. There were a lot more people then we imagined and the Timberland sign rested in the sand-dunes while bloggers and other attendees posed with it. It was very clearly branded and as soon as you arrived you knew what the event was about. The wine reception and stage set-up, forecast a good time and that is exactly what it was!

The Fashion show was the main event, we loved how the catwalk was nestled in the wilderness of the desert and the audience sat on the walls either side of it. It began shortly after we were seated and unfortunately the styling did not cater to the crowd. We know Timberland is an adventure brand, popular amongst travellers but they could have definitely done a better job to make there clothes more appealing, it was just a bit of a bore, nothing noteworthy.There were some nice pieces in their collection and hopefully at their next show they will find a way to showcase them in a more stylish way.

All-in-all it was an amazing evening! The setting somehow made everyone more affable, there was this sense of all being on an adventure together and we witnessed more socialising then usual which was really interesting, cliques dispersed through the evening and the dance-floor was packed. We can’t wait to get lost again!
