Easter treats from Shopa.com: How to earn cash rewards through shopping!

As Easter Sunday approaches what better way to celebrate than by going shopping! But forget your traditional Chocolate eggs and Easter bunnies as I’ve found a fashionable way to update your wardrobe for less via Shopa.com.

The brand new revolutionary website has just launched, creating an online store which allows its users to combine both shopping and social media. You can do this by following other customers with similar tastes, helping you find your own style inspiration by mixing a haven of luxury goods against a back drop of all your favourite high street stores and up-coming brands. Plus Shopa.com keeps you up-to-date on the most trending items via social media, letting you purchase them instantly whilst sharing with all your friends. All you have to do is create a virtual Shopa profile and customise your feed with your favourite brands… And the best part? You earn cash rewards every time a friend or follower purchases the items you recommend!

Joining in and thinking outside the box I’ll be keeping my post New Year’s diet right on track by rocking this fab “Fryday” T-shirt from Adolescent Clothing instead of traditional fish ‘n’ chips for dinner on Good Friday; teaming the look with a pair of Current/Elliot skinny ripped jeans and colourful kicks from Nike. However, if the weather does adhere to spring-like temperatures with the sun shining through I can always add a metallic mini skirt (courtesy of Marc Jacobs) and a pair of strappy flats by Chloe for a glam spin on summer.

But you have to be quick as Adolescent’s super-cool logo tees and jumpers are flying out fast due to their limited availability and won’t be around for much longer.

The Black Friday Discount Codes You Need To Know!

Adopted from our American cousins, Black Friday is the Friday following Thanksgiving Day when shopping prices are slashed (similar to those on Boxing Day) across both online and high street retailers.

If you’re thinking of getting a head start for Christmas or need any new homeware attire then my advice is to jump aboard and hit the shops early tomorrow! However most retailers have clocked onto the dates and have started their own sales early, even prolonging discounts until Tuesday (hurrah!). Most savvy shoppers though will know the best option to beat the car park and store queues is to shop online; although just be prepared for some of your favourite websites to potentially crash if consumer sales hit an all time high!

Here is my latest list of Black Friday discount codes for all your favourite online stores…. Happy Shopping!

SS13 Trends: Neon Hues

For spring/summer 2013 designers literally used every print and colour under the sun to adorn their collections with and none stood out more than the neon trend.

A flashback from the 90s neon hues used to incorporated yellow acid happy face tees and glow sticks but are now back with a bang in a sophisticated style becoming more grown up, sassy and tailored. Fashion houses such as Simone Rocha, Paul Smith, Gucci, Osman and Diane von Furstenberg to name a few all opted for fuchsia pink, acid greens and yellows alongside burnt orange shades to help pack a fashion punch to their designs.

Whether it was shown on billowing blouses, laced panels, high-end tailoring or frills, fluoro fashion is back and hitting a store near you.

If you don’t think you can pull off the look then think again. Online and high street retailers have brought out some great options for SS13 and here are just a few of my fav pieces that I’ve spotted…

 

Team daytime work pants with accents of neon via statement jewellery or workplace heels; or go full on for a day at the races, a wedding or special occasion in a neon inspired dress.

If you don’t want to be too bulchy about the look then just add smaller pieces into your outfit with a ring, earrings or clutch bag.

Happy Shopping!

Isabel Marant For H&M

Our fav high street / designer collaborator is back with a bang and this time its the turn of super-genius French designer Isabel Marant.

Isabel Marant For H&M

Isabel Marant For H&M0

The Parisian designer’s appointment was announced earlier today and is set to bring a mix of her urban boho and chic rock ‘n’ roll attitude to a brand new range for H&M.

The collection won’t be available until the 14th November (sucre bleu!) but will be based in over 250 stores worldwide and sold online so we can all (hopefully) get a piece of this genuine French range. Inspired by her signature style Marant will apparently be creating a collection of clothing and accessories for both women and teenagers as well as (for the very first time) a collection for men!

Marant herself has also commented that: “I am flattered by this collaboration: H&M works with the best designers and this invitation is an exciting honour. I aim at creating something real, that women want to wear in their everyday lives, with a certain carelessness, which I think is very Parisian: you dress up, but do not pay too much attention and still look sexy. The collection is infused with this kind of easiness and attitude. Everything can be mixed following one’s own instincts: my take on fashion is all about personality”.

Très exciting.

That’s right folks our fav songstress Rihanna has just announced that she is set to collaborate with high street chain River Island to design her first EVER clothing range.

Riri first visited the UK-based store back in February and it seems the designs not only caught her eye but were also quickly added to her wardrobe as she has since been spotted out in some of the brands pieces. According to River Island’s Style Insider blog Riri approached THEM to collaborate and knowing her style we can only imagine how colourful and fabulous the collection will be.

Speaking about the collaboration Rihanna noted: “I’ve been wanting to design my own collection for some time. River Island is the perfect partner for me to collaborate with and working with a British, family run business also really appealed to me. I find London really inspiring and River Island loves to have fun with clothes. I’m looking forward to working with them and creating something really special.”

Rihanna’s collection for River Island will launch in Spring 2013.

Friday Fashion Fix: Zara mini shopper handbag

Zara mini-shopper sale handbagWe all know that Zara has been storming the high street this year with its fabulous designs incorporating studded collars and cool chino’s with good quality and prices.

My favourite is this uber cute die-cast mini shopper bag complete with punched out holes and nifty handle in one of this season’s biggest colours: bright yellow. The bag also comes in electric blue, bright mint, coral and fuchsia pink all for just £49.99….

Happy shopping!!

Friday Fashion Fix: Steve Madden for New Look

Am literally so excited it’s Friday! After a manic work week it’s a lovely weekend planned with a Turkish inspired meal out with my girlfriends tonight and then on to a hen do tomorrow for an old work colleague – who in true style will be hosting a vintage afternoon tea followed by cocktails.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Therefore with so many events to stop off at I have been looking for the perfect heels to team with my weekend outfits, and they come in the form of shoe designer Steve Madden. I am already a massive fan of his collections (hoarding an assortment of my own) and now this clever chap has collaborated with New Look to bring an affordable range to the high street (and online).

Choose from  a selection of bright colours and on-trend prints as well as classic black heels to match with a party dress for a glam night out. Aside from this he has also thrown into the mix casual day wear soles with a mixture of mid heels and embellished sandals; what more can you ask for?

My favourites are these gorge folk inspired wedges and his classic LBH (little black heels) with diamonte t-bar. Prices start from around £49.99.
