Beyoncé's New House of Deréon Campaign

Long time readers of this blog will know that I am a that HUUUUUUUUUUUUUGE Beyoncé fan.

The woman can do no wrong in my book; talented, beautiful, kind, genuine, amazing! Considering I am such a big fan of this woman, I was surprised at myself that I have never bought anything from Beyoncé's clothing line, House of Deréon. I think the clothes are gorgeous, just not really my style.

Well, now that the campaign shots for the new season's collection have been released, I can say, without a shadow of a doubt, that I will be indulging in this line!

In these beautiful shots, Beyoncé struts through the desert, channelling a seriously cool rock and roll spirit - cut away dresses, animal print maxis and leather jackets - too cool!

This collection looks sexy, stylish and the perfect amount of diva/rock star! Beyoncé thank you for yet another reason to worship you!

What do you think of the campaign shots? Enjoy x

Belle of the Ball and Bump!


As you may (or may not have) noticed, I haven’t been a very good blogger recently, with only two or three posts a week. Very bad blogger!

I’m so sorry for the lack of posts, but I promise I have a very good reason, which I have had to keep very secret…until now that is.

And the reason? Well, I’m three months pregnant! I am so excited (as is hubby) but I have had to keep it very quiet, as I am quite supersticious, and didn’t want to make anything public until I had my 12 week scan, which I did yesterday. Happily, everything is looking great with little Titch (oh, that’s what we’re calling the bump) and I was finally able to announce our fabulous news with all our friends and family – and of course facebook, making it properly official now!

So the first few weeks I was very tired, feeling sick and just not up to much, hence my terrible blogging etiquette. I was basically getting home from work and falling asleep on the couch at 8pm – so rock and roll.

I’m feeling a lot better now and just really excited, so I will try and resume normal blogging activity. It just feels really nice that I am able to share the news at last – it’s been a very long 8 weeks!

I’m not going to make this a pregnancy related fashion blog now, I will keep up my regular fashion and beauty posts and news, but I might throw in a bit of maternity fashion into the mix, as I want to keep it relative to what I am going through.

In the meantime, here is the first picture of Titch – it’s a bit dark because Titch was very squirmy and jumping around a lot, so they couldn’t get a brilliant photo, but I’ve pointed out what’s what below. X

Thursday's Wish List

I love it when the first drops of the autumn collections start hitting the high street.

I'm not going to lie, I'm kind of over summer. It feels like it's been muggy for months, and I am so ready to start rocking a new wardrobe for AW12. I miss tights, boots, chunky knits and gorgeous winter coats.

Everyone always seems to think that I am mental, but I really do like the colder months more than summer. I think the clothes are just so much nicer, the styles are always much more exciting. So, that being said, I've been doing a little window shopping and have made a wish list...for this week anyway ;^) and yes those are the boots from Office that EVERY blogger is lusting after...well, they are pretty damn gorgeous!

So here is my list. Have you started planning your new season wardrobe already? Enjoy x

Coat Topshop £110
Ring River Island £4
Jumper dress River Island £40
Floral dress Topshop £46
Boots Office £80
Dot by Marc Jacobs 100mls £63
