#AngelAddiction

thierry-mugler-angel-addiction-campaign-perfume-smile-lipstick-music-love

In life, we all have those little guilty pleasures that feed our happiness. It could be your favourite dress, a sneaky bar of chocolate or even a person. These addictions can wrap us up into a little safety blanket, like your favourite toy when you were child. Thierry Mugler have launched a new campaign alongside their perfume Angel and their Angel icon Georgia May Jagger called #AngelAddiction to discover the relationship between people and their addictions. After working with Thierry Mugler on their #AngelTribes campaign, I was flattered to be invited again to work with them by showing you my addictions from my past, present and future.

The sentiment of this programme stems from the very addictive universe of Angel: a fascinating world made of dreams, imaginary journeys, sweets and sensual delights. Daring & curious, Angel enchants and brings to life an irrepressible desire of giving way to the temptation. When you wear Angel, immediately it takes effect, capturing your senses and creating a feeling of a magic between the Mugler woman and the scent; there lies the real addiction.

Happiness- I have always tried to be a happy person, as I love the way it makes you feel. Even when you’re down, if you force yourself to see the positives, it can change your day around. That feeling of being truly whole and content was something I cherished from a young age and will probably continue for years to come.

Music- Music has always been a big part of my life. It has got me through some good and some not so good times, has been my comforter but also a mood changer. If there’s a certain beat or line that I love, I will repeat it to death (much to my parent’s annoyance)!

Lipstick- Don’t even get me started! I absolutely adore lipstick; reds, pinks, purples…I love them all! Recently I’ve been addicted to Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Black Cherry (a stunning deep purple) and Mac Matte Ruby Woo (a classic pillarbox blue-based red).

Matters of the heart- Every girl dreams of finding her prince one day. You get a few frogs along the way, but regardless of how many times you get hurt, you always come back for more. I’m extremely happy at the moment, and that feeling you get when you’re with someone special is very addictive. And I guess that is what will captivate me in the future, being with someone that makes me feel that same excitement and happiness every single day.

Perfume- Just before I head out the door, I always grab a bottle of perfume for that little lift I need to complete my look. When I was younger I adored the Kylie Minogue fragrances, but recently I’ve been reaching for Angel and Alien Eau Extraordinaire by Thierry Mugler as they are so strong and empowering yet with a touch of femininity and glamour.

OOTD: Skin and Bone

Winter is well and truly setting in in the UK, although there have been some days where all I've needed is a jumper and a thick cardigan and I'm good to go! As we're heading towards Crimbo I thought I'd stock up on some winter warmers to get me through the inevitable minus degree temperatures heading our way. Oasap solved my problem by sending me some great knits; a skeleton jumper and and Aztec print cardigan! And I have not stopped wearing them!

The print on this cardigan is awesome; I'm loving large prints at the moment for winter. It has a thick collar and even though it has three-quarter length sleeves it still keeps you toasty warm! I've been layering it with jumpers (like my skeleton one) to keep the chill of my wrists which adds a great layering detail. This has been great to throw on when going out so its really versatile and was much appreciated on Bonfire Night!

I've been pairing the cardigan and the jumper together a lot recently as they prints clash so well!

I have been so in love with this jumper! It was a shame that it didn't arrive for Halloween, but I'm one of those people that will rock a bit of skeleton love all year round (harping back to my goth phase circa 2006). The material feels quite thin but keeps you surprisingly warm too! It's been great to dress up with heeled boots and denim as well as with leggings and fluffy socks on chilled days as the slightly oversized look is great to snuggle in.

Both knits are fab for mixing textures with, like this Ukulele lace skirt and New Look leather boots. I'm cracking out my fave scarf too as the pink adds a pop of colour (my fave styling trick) and I was actually plenty warm enough like this!

The little details

So this post is mainly a photo based post about my favourite accessories I've been wearing this year! Some of the items are quite summery (and I know if you look out the window, it is definitely not that sunny!) but I really love these photos that my lovely friend Emma took of me and really wanted to share them. So here we are! Hope you like them :)

Last day at LFW

Tuesday 16th September was my last day at LFW and this day was quite a nice quiet day to end on. When I arrived at Freemasons Hall I did not have to que and managed to get a seat with Aura for the Dioralop show. There were some gorgeous pieces in this show that I want quite a lot...some pieces were more wearable than others but still stood out in oversized layered silhouettes despite the lack of colour. The models' bodies were loosely strapped up in thick straps and were teamed with structured sleeveless coats and customized tailored trousers. One of my favourite looks was a 3 piece suit (jacket, shirt and trousers) in the signature Dioralop print.

This jacket has been sitting waiting for its moment to shine and I thought my last day at LFW would be the perfect opportunity to wear it! It certainly did me proud...I got street-styled in it! It was a very surreal moment (I guess the whole week was a surreal moment!) but after being put on the spot to do multiple poses and my mind going completely blank of any whatsoever, I managed to get into the swing of it! I will try and get my hands on the photos so if I do I'll add them to this post. 

After the show I headed over to Somerset House to have a look at some of the collections on display inside and to have a walk around. I spent quite a while exploring and chatting to all the exciting brands inside...

These gorgeous trinkets are from the designer fine jewelry brand Ruifier. All their pieces are handmade and are delicate yet showstoppers in their own right! The beautiful geometric shapes are decorated with stunning stones that are so sparkly! Just look at the photo below- it's one of my favourite photos I've ever taken as the lighting is just so dramatic it really shows off the ring in all its glory!

Where do I even start with these Hemsley bags?!?!?! I spent a good 5 minutes just taking in how beautiful they are! These luxury leather bags are so cool; I love the boxy shapes and the variety of colours! And the beauty doesn't just stop of the outside...inside you have so many compartments, even for your phone and tablet! You seriously get a lot of bag for your money.

After exploring the inside of Somerset House I ventured outside and bumped into some old and some new faces! I spent a while with the hilarious Grabble lot who were out showing off their swanky new app (which I seriously suggest you check out- it's like the Tinder of shopping) and then I bumped into Becca Rose again! I hadn't seen her since the River Island press day so it was lovely to catch up with her. And she introduced me to the lovely Tasha Green, Paige Joanna and Charlotte Clothier who were all so sweet and looked absolutely stunning!

And that is the end of my adventures at LFW! I hope you've enjoyed it as much as I have! For my first year there, it was so exciting and was one of the most fun experiences I've ever had! Here's to AW15 in February!

What was your favourite designer from SS15?
