#TLCOMP: My Sparkling Wish with Swarovski

Supermodel Miranda Kerr has collaborated with Swarovski and created a spirited collection of jewellery, each piece infused with a beautiful meaning just in time to share ‘My Sparkling Wish’ for this Christmas.  

The symbols Miranda has designed are all extremely sweet and there is definitely something which will resonate with everyone in the collection.  For me, the rose toned wings caught my eye.  It made me think of strength, of guardian Angels and the quote, ‘Angels can fly because they take themselves lightly’ came to my mind.  Regardless of how stressful a time I am having, this necklace can serve as a constant reminder of how I can get through any tough situation with some deep ol’breathing and by remembering that maybe, hopefully, there is some sort of higher power at work who’s got my back!

My rose gold toned necklace has been easily incorporated into my my wardrobe, and given its versatile elegance, it takes me from day to night with real ease, allowing me to sparkle all day long with its layered, pretty wings, regardless what I'm wearing. 

Aside from jewellery, SWAROVSKI would love to hear your sparkling wish for a loved one.  Follow @SwarovskiUK on Twitter and tweet your Christmas wish for a loved one using the hashtag #MySparklingWish and tagging @SwarovskiUK, for a chance to win a SWAROVSKI Christmas Hamper, including baubles, shimmer tea lights and pieces from the Miranda Kerr collection.  T&C apply.

Halloween 2013

Celebrating Halloween in the UK has become increasingly popular in the last few years (thank you Heidi Klum!) and now there is no shortage of thrills and chills to enjoy come October 31st.  With this ghoulish night fast approaching us (like a serial killer in a dark alley) costumes are now firmly on my mind.  Usually the ladies of London use this annual opportunity to leave as little to the imagination as possible... something spooky + clevage = (Sexy) Vampire/(Sexy) Cat/(Sexy) Skeleton/(Sexy) Devil, etc.  I however, would love to see more effort on the whole and witness some really spooky, stomach-churningly dramatic outfits on the big night;  a tormented zombie, a rabid hybrid werewolf, a two-headed cannibal, a VMA’s Miley Cyrus… Now THAT would be terrifying!

PFW: Stella McCartney SS'14

Amidst the modern tomboy aesthetic Stella McCartney has long been associated with, some lighter, more romantic designs were also displayed on the catwalk during this Paris Fashion Week.  J'adorrre these two delicate lingerie-laced SS’14 dresses (above) worn by supermodels Miranda Kerr and Cara Delevigne.

Miranda Kerr's Summer Style

Aussie supermodel and 'yummy mummy' Miranda Kerr is loving the New York summer and I am LOVING her polished off-duty street style.

Strolling through Manhattan last week (above) with her Balmain tote, Miranda looked gorgeous wearing a long printed shirt-dress, a classic panama hat, gold flats, and the same Miu Miu Hexagonal-frame sunglasses I have been lusting after (available at net-a-porter, £190).

The following day Miranda was photographed (below, with adorable Flynn) mixing a printed Topshop skirt with an Isabel Marant vest top, a patent raspberry coloured Louis Vuitton handbag, nude Alexander Wang block-heeled sandals and MORE Miu Miu sunglasses.

The British Victoria's Secret 2012 Invasion

Last night Cara Delevigne (above) and Jourdan Dunn (below right) joined fellow Brit, and seasoned Angel, Lily Donaldson (below left) at the 17th Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, at the Lexington Avenue Armory, in New York.   Walking alongside international beauties Miranda Kerr and Adriana Lima, the gorgeous young trio did us all proud this side of the pond, strutting their hot stuff amongst the usual abundance of feathers, sparkles, wings and hairspray.  With performances by Rihanna, Bruno Mars and Justin Bieber (who seemed particularly enamoured by the stripy striking Cara!) this year’s extravaganza was divided into four sections: Circus, Dangerous Liaisons, Pink is Me and Calender Girls.   

Adding force to this year’s Victoria's Secret British invasion, for the first time all of the Angels wore high heels created by the same label - British designer Nicholas Kirkwood.

Below:  Brazilian Angel Alessandro Ambrosio wowed the audience whilst wearing pink orchid wings and the diamond encrusted ‘Fantasy Bra’ – a steal at a mere $2.5 million.

And just when I thought I couldn’t adore Cara Delevigne any more, she arrived at Heathrow to fly to New York for the VS show wearing… a tiger onesie. Running around the airport, Cara posed for Jourdan Dunn's iPhone underneath her polished Burberry campaign beauty shots in the Duty Free section. The models immediately instagrammed the shots. I love.
