Get your beauty fix with Silverburn

Debenhams at Silverburn sure know how to throw a good breakfast! After being filled with pastries and smoothies we were talked through beauty trends and all I can say is get ready to love a bold lip and flawless skin because you will be seeing this look all season. 

If you are based in Glasgow head along to Silverburn to their Spring Fashion Fix event for a weekend of beauty, fashion advice and discounts from brands such as Arran Aeromatics, Boux Avenue, Oasis and more. As always Silverburn are environmentally conscious, this weekend they are hosting a beauty amnesty where you can take in 5 old beauty products and exchange them for a £10 voucher to spend in store. On top of that they have beauty counters providing tips on how to achieve the latest beauty looks, the key fashion trends of the season will be on display and they will have a colourist in to explain what colours will suit your complexion this season.

Debenhams ss15

If there is one press night I look forward to every season it's Debenhams. I love seeing what trends they'll have in and how they style the models always makes me want to go shopping!

For SS15 I'm all about sheer panelling and Debenhams have this is abundance! The Todd Lynn shirt dress is a wardrobe staple and can be layered up with jeans/gilets/skirts to make it super versatile. 

Since wedding season is around the corner it's ok that I'm drooling over floor length dresses, that mint green one with the feather cape? NEED! And as wedding season heralds in the start of swimwear season you'll all be wanting to grab a giant hat and sun yourself by the pool in a statement swimsuit, and nothing is going to beat this palm print beauty. 

Head to Debenhams for all your SS15 needs and you'll be the most stylish person at the pool, or the wedding....just don't mention it to the bride!

jump...for my love

You may have seen those handbags around recently as Cosmo found them as were a little bemused as to how a 2D cartoon handbag can exist. If you've been reading my blog you will know that I've loved Jump from Paper for a long time, their bags never fail to take an outfit to the next level! From double denim and pastel lace to aztec prints and oysters these 2D bags go with anything. 

Since the Glasgow Vintage Kilo Sale I have a new love for oversized shirts, and there is no better way to wear a denim shirt than with skinny jeans and creepers, the bag adds just the right amount of colour. And can we just talk about this amazing glittery ham necklace for a second?! By the super talented Love me Tender London it is an ode to glitter, with a little cheeky ham related twist thrown in for good measure.

Mothers day gift guide for Glasgow and Edinburgh

We all want to spoil our Mum on Mother's day and here are some full proof ways to make sure she feel's like the most special Mum ever.

1. FLOWERS! Come on people, everyone loves flowers and on Mother's day you need to make a little more effort than popping to Tesco on your way to see your Mum. Floral Menagerie is in my opinion the best florist in Glasgow, I would say that though as the lovely Lisa did the flowers for my wedding! You can pick them up yourself or get them delivered straight to your Mum. Unfortunately this service is only available in Glasgow so if you are based elsewhere then my advice is to google florists if you don't already have a favourite.

2. High tea. There are plenty places across the country that do amazing high tea but my favourite has to be the Blythswood Hotel in Glasgow. The decor is breath-taking and has a sense of old world glamour, the perfect excuse to get your Mum all dolled up and take her to the bar for a few cocktails after! The Blythswood are giving every Mum who dines with them on Mothers day a free glass of prosecco, what a better way to start the day?

3. Spa break. Ok so this one is in Edinburgh not Glasgow, but a Lush spa is worth getting on a train for! I'd recommend the 'good hour' treatment, an hour long deep tissue relaxing massage is the perfect pamper session for your Mum, and whilst your their why not treat yourself too! 

4. Even if your a little short on cash this month you can still spoil your Mum, bake her a cake! No I'm not joking, your Mum will love the fact that you've taken proper time out to make her something by hand, and if you're not a brilliant baker (like me) enlist one of your friends who's uber talented in the kitchen, split the cost of the ingredients and split the cake between your Mums! Perfect solution. These caramel and chocolate slices are amazing and choc full (see what I did there?) of superfoods so you and your Mum will be eating chocolate slices that are good for you!

5. Take your Mum to the Ballet! Or the theatre, or a Gig, or the Cinema....Get the point?Trust me when I say there's nothing more your Mum wants than to spend some time with you. The Scottish Ballet's latest offering is 'A Street Car Named Desire' showing in Edinburgh. Now it might not be showing on Mothers Day but what better present to hand over than one that means you'll be treating your Mum again?!

Enjoy Mothers Day!

50 shades of grey and a duck headed umbrella

Spring has definitely sprung and with it the showers have arrived with a vengeance. I love spring, the mornings are lighter, there are tiny babies of everything running around and the flowers are starting to bloom. All the rain can't dampen my spirits but sometimes it's best to take extra precautions, just in case it happens to be pouring when your feeling blue. My foolproof way of avoiding the rain induced blues? Invest in an adorable umbrella! The Original Duckhead umbrella is a classic design, and it comes in a multitude of colours, of course I went for baby pink! 

There is nothing like dressing for your mood and today I felt very upper east side, it's either the cape going to my head or I've been watching too many Gossip Girl re-runs. I decided to layer the cape with a 3/4 sleeve faux leather jacket & a boat neck jumper. Popping a statement necklace on makes the shirt collar stand out and brings out the gold in the jumper, bag and the belt. You can't go wrong with a pleated midi skirt, the boots are patent and have a cleated sole which make them perfect for stomping around in the rain.
