Perfect Places to pop the question

Whether you’re hoping for a proposal this Valentine’s Day or
you’re taking the leap on 29 February, here’s where to go!

Lake Loveliness
Derwentwater in the Lake District is one of Visit England’s top five places to propose and it’s not hard to see why with its dramatic mountains and beautiful lakes. Hire a boat, row out to a secluded spot and go to The Cottage In The Wood. (Rooms including breakfast start from £115 a night;
thecottageinthewood.co.uk.)

Cornish Charm
Welsh poet Dylan Thomas described Mousehole (pronounced ‘Mowzel’) in Cornwall as “the loveliest village in England”, and we agree. Pack a Champagne picnic for a beachside engagement, then book into Chapel House PZ in Penzance for sea views and design-led decor. (Rooms from £150 per night; chapelhousepz.co.uk.)

Highland Fling
Take a day trip to the most northern part of the UK – the Shetland Islands – for a date to remember. Fly to Lerwick and make for a secluded beach like West Voe with its white sands and perhaps only a puffin or two for company. Afterwards, pop into Frankie’s Fish & Chips in Brae – voted 2015 best fish and chips in the UK – before flying home. (Daily fights are via Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Glasgow. Visit shetland.org/plan/how-to-get-here/fight.)

Primrose Perfection
In a survey by Hotels.com, Primrose Hill in London was voted as the most romantic place in the UK. Grab a bench at the top on a clear sunny day and pop the question. Nearby gastropub York & Albany is owned by celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay and the hotel rooms are ideal for an overnight stay with style. (Double rooms from £150 per night on a room only basis; gordonramsayrestaurants.com/york-and-albany.)

Celebs give their best ‘Blue Steel’ at premiere

Wow! This strapless bodycon dress is dazzling.

Kirsten Wiig 

The American actress’ black mini dress looks vintage, everything looks pretty with a bow on!

Millie Mackintosh

Millie looks gorgeous in this black maxi dress. Perfect 90’s vintage.

Neelam Gill

Neelam is an up and coming British model so she needs to make a good impression. She’s got it right with her grey maxi dress. I love it!

Celeb Party Outfits At Superbowl 50

The Superbowl isn’t just about sport – it’s all about the party atmosphere and what people are wearing to celebrate! As it’s one of the biggest events in America’s sporting calendar, parties happened all across San Francisco where the game was held.

And as the focus was on sport, celebs had to show off to ensure they got attention over the football. Here are the Top 5 Super Celeb Looks:

Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga was one of the biggest stars of the night as she sang the National Anthem before the big game. I love a trouser suit and although you do need some guts to pull off a red one, it is the colour of love as Valentine’s Day is coming up.

Beyonce

Beyonce was performing, which is why she’s wearing a skimpy outfit, but I loved her leather jacket. You could wear a good quality leather jacket anywhere and it would last you all year as it also looks great with skater dresses in the summer. As for black hotpants – if they’re good enough for Beyonce….

Adriana Lima

The Victoria’s Secret model got into the Superbowl spirit at Vanity Fair’s party in a black mini dress. If you’re not sure what to wear to a party then a black dress fits every scenario. And the leather jacket, taking a note from Beyonce’s book, helps her to stand out even more for the right reasons.

 January Jones

A flowing white dress isn’t just a summer thing! The Mad Men actress looks super stylish in her white dress, showing off a slight boho edge. With everyone else in black, red or leather, it’s good January has chosen white. The faux fur jacket adds an air of luxury, don’t you think?

Alicia Keys

Alicia performed at one of the Superbowl parties and looked like a true rock chick with her leather skirt and black t-shirt. This is both feminine and fierce – I really like it.

Who do you think looked best?

Celebrities Party After Dad’s Army Premiere

Dad’s Army is a cult classic so lots of celebs turned up to support the cast and crew at the premiere in London’s Leicester Square. Despite the rain, everyone made a real effort to look glam. There’s no point in going out if you’re not looking and feeling your best, is there?

Colour blocking was the biggest trend of the night as all the stars opted for outfits in one bold, bright colour. As Dry January is almost over and Valentine’s Day is coming up, let’s have a look at some of the best outfits that are guaranteed to impress your mates and dates.

(1) Catherine Zeta Jones

Catherine’s outfit reminded me of what Rosie Huntington Whiteley wore down the catwalk in Paris. A blue maxi dress suits blondes and brunettes alike and helps alert the fact that you’re at a party.

(2) Millie Mackintosh

Who said you can’t get noticed in black? Millie’s zip detail jumpsuit showed off her glowing tan and she danced the night away at Annabel’s nightclub.

(3) Emily Atack

Emily also opted for black at the premiere, but stood out as her maxi dress was so Princess-like. I do like a long-sleeve maxi dress at this time of year. It will keep you warm so you may not need a coat and it looks really elegant.

(4) Princess Eugenie

Princess Eugenie showed that she is  a fun royal in a leather dress. She wore it well! I’ve noticed a great selection of PU dresses and PU skirts right now, which really catch the eye.

(5) Rosie Fortescue

Made In Chelsea’s Rosie showed off her fashion blogger credentials in a green dress. The midnight green is a warm colour, which lifts even pale skin and I like the midi length.

What outfit would you most like to wear?

Sweet 2016 Dreams

Sixteen switches for the new year. They’re so easy, you can do them while you sleep. Well, before bed…

1. Leave-in conditioner

Put onto dry, parched ends to nourish your hair.

2.  The silk secret

Cotton pillowcases can cause hair to frizz. Swap to silk ones to help reduce unnecessary breakage. 

3. Braid before bed

Wake to mermaid-style locks without the heat damage. Plait damp hair before bed and remember that the smaller the section, the tighter the wave.

4. Hand cream

Smother a generous layer of hydrating lotion on your hands and feet.

5. Zap zits

Soothe spots while you sleep by applying tea tree oil on your blemishes. Its disinfecting properties will help reduce redness and won’t strip your skin of its natural oils.

6. Root cause

Avoid waking up to flat hair caused by greasy roots and use a dry shampoo before bed. Spritz under the hair, close to the roots and scrunch in until the white powder disappears.

7. Brush your lips

Gently exfoliate your lips with your toothbrush and then lock in moisture with an enriching balm.

8. Cold creams

Applying eye cream prior to nodding off is no secret, but how about keeping the product in the fridge? The cooling effect will help to reduce puffiness and comfort your weary peepers.

9. Try a humidifier

For softer skin, use a humidifier. It adds moisture to the air, so it’s perfect for when the heating is on.

10. Rest easy

Make sure to get at least eight hours of shut-eye a night. Aim to turn off your phone and tablet screens 60 minutes before turning in. They emit blue light which can disturb your sleep pattern.

11. Cleanse

Don’t drop off without removing your make-up. It can attract blemish-causing bacteria.

12. All white

Once a week, dip your toothbrush into some bicarbonate of soda, polish your teeth and rinse. Do it before bed for the best results.

13. Hair mare

Keep your locks off your face while you snooze to prevent breakouts.

14. Oil up

Suffer from hard hangnails? Massage cuticle oil onto your nail beds for total rehydration.

15. Night cream

Whatever your age, use a night lotion or a restorative serum on cleansed skin. These products are able to work their magic without any disruption from cosmetics, the sun and pollution.

 16. Joint care

Zones like your knees, elbows and any other areas that are prone to excessive dryness will benefit from an overnight hydrating hit.
