Edgy, Original and Luxurious Handbags. Meet ROMYGOLD!

Monday 27 September 2010

You're in for a treat Little Rawrers. I've only gone and discovered one of the HAWTEST handbag designers right now!

Launched in 2009, ROMYGOLD has shaped the meaning of affordable luxury with their timeless, yet on-trend, handbags. Each bag combines style, everlasting shapes, subtle detail and the highest quality, distressed and embossed leathers.

Signature elements include the ‘slash’ and ‘slit’ leather, stud, grommet and zipper detailing and knotted finishes.


Like magnetism, I'm drawn to this. Ultimate biker chic, the perfect size and you just know Gaga would want to borrow it. Studded Heaven also available in Camel, Chocolate, Off-white, Navy & White...


The hawt little sister of the STUD HOBO, perfect to accessorize with that favourite party dress ;) You can buy it in black, white, camel & with gold/gunmetal studs.

In 2009, Lisa and Romy were simply two close friends with a love of fashion. Avid shoppers who grew weary of the high-end, expensive luxury market (sound familiar!? ;), they set out to design bags that were chic and edgy at reasonable prices.


AHHH! Something tells me our favourite Charley 5.0 Angels would be ALL over this! Denim & studs are my two favourite things on the entire planet. Yes, I'm in love with this. Can I has!?

One of the few lines that refuses to sacrifice style for affordability –starting their luxury line at $275 and keeping styles under $700.


Okay, this finish rocks hard! My personal favourite is this messenger style (imagine with skinnies and a graphic tee) but it's available in various colours, styles and shapes...


This red leather is delicious. A more adventurous alternative to black & a clutch that would really make an outfit. Speaking of hawt clutches...


Also available in vibrant red, I'd say this is my favourite of the clutches! Statement making or what!? LOVE.

Now as you know, we love style-stalking celebs...

ROMYGOLD has garnered a loyal celebrity following with Fergie, Kim Kardashian, Kirstin Cavallari, Vanessa Hudgens and Whitney Port as well as being featured in mags such as InStyle, Life & Style, Lucky, and Women's Health.

A favourite among editors and stylists, the line can be found on their official website www.romygold.com as well as luxury boutiques and specialty retailers including Bergdorf Goodman, Saks Fifth Avenue, Intermix, Harvey Nichols and shopbop.com.

ROMYGOLD is edgy, original, luxurious and totally hawt. I love that if you buy one of their bags, yes it's guaranteed to get you noticed, but only a fashionista in the know would be able to work out the designer. Muhahahaha!

Rare, hawt fashion- just what T loves. XoX

Be sure to stalk them on Twitter & Facebook for all the latest ROMYGOLD news.

Monday 20 September 2010

Lauren Moshi is one of those brands I just absolutely ADORE. I like to think of them as Wildfox's crazy cousin. Young, fun and uber cool!

Their new collection is just to die for. Check some of my favourites out:

1st October is Jeans For Genes Day! What will you wear?!

No comments

Sooooo, I'm SUPER excited because for the first time ever, my workplace is participating in Jeans For Genes Day on 1st October! This means I get to lose the boring officewear and step into my fave denims for the day, and all for charidee!

Jeans For Genes are the UK children's charity that aims to change the world for children with genetic disorders. Individually, genetic disorders are rare but together they affect 1 in 25 children born in the UK - that's more than 30,000 babies each year. Their associated health problems mean that genetic disorders are the biggest killer of children aged 14 years and under.
Jeans for Genes provides funding for the care and support of children with genetic disorders. They also help to fund research into genetics and the development of effective treatments and cures. Each year they offer funding to a range of charities, read all about it here!

So, there's NO DOUBT that both me & T will be rocking the Charley 5.0 on 1st October! Charley 5.0 is our fave denim brand and thanks to the Angels, we have a lot to choose from! I think I'll be going for the Charley 5.0 3 Way Zip Denim Leggings, $156 from Shopbop, and I have a feeling T might head the same way!

OR, I might get the AMAZING Charley 5.0 Baby Snap Denim Leggings, £138 from Shopbop, out to play. Either way, I'll be making colleagues JEALZ!!

It would also be the shizz if the Charley 5.0 The Shirt, $88 from Revolve, that I am waiting for in the mail comes before Jeans For Genes Day, then I could double up on the Charley denim!

We're not the only ones excited by Jeans For Genes Day, cool London boutique, Donna Ida, are running a denim drive in aid of JFG ! If you have any old or unwanted jeans you can bring them into any Donna Ida store and they will trade them for a £20 voucher off your next pair from them! Your old jeans will then be styled and sold at Donna Ida's concession in Lily Allen’s new store ‘Lucy in Disguise’ with 50% of the proceeds going to Jeans for Genes! Click here for more details :)

So if I had a £20 Donna Ida voucher to put towards a new pair of jeans, what would I choose.....

J Brand Houlihan in Vintage Navy, £245 at Donna Ida.

Mih jeans Vienna Two Tone, £145 at Donna Ida.

Superfine Super Swirl Black, £360 at Donna Ida.

They're all SO hot! Donna Ida stocks a ridiculous amount of denim hotness, plus tops and accessories and some great sales too! It's one of our fave boutiques, you can follow them on Twitter and Facebook for updates on everything denim! :)

Are you doing anything for Jeans For Genes this year? Let us, and them, know!

J - Rollin' in my 5.0 - finally in the office!

Shoes that give you legs like Heidi Klum? Is this a waking dream?!

No comments

Okay, so I am blatently writing this up because Cloggs are running one of their blog entry comps to win shoes, and I really am desperate to have a pair of todays prize, Reebok EasyTones!

In fact, it was only recently that I was discussing the new toning shoe craze with a friend. She said she wanted the Skechers Shape Ups, but I mocked her choice saying I'd MUCH rather have the Reebok EasyTones because they are after all a legendary sports brand, whilst Skechers make chunky fashion shoes for teen pop queens in my opinion. Of course you could go for FitFlops (their new Supertone shoe is pretty shizzy, especially in Pewter), but still, the shape and design of the Reebok's just look more suitable for actual light exercise as opposed to just taking a stroll to the corner shop, and I would like to have the option to do a light jog in them safe in the knowledge that my foot and leg muscles or bones weren't getting a hammering because I'm wearing a leisure shoe instead of a sports shoe!

These Reebok Easytone Go Outside II at £74.99, have a streamlined, sleek look in a cool colourway.

So, how do these miracle shoes work? Here's the science bit! EasyTone technology has pockets of moving air in the heel and forefoot that promote micro-instability. It improves muscle tone up to 28% in the glutes and up to 11% in the calves and hamstrings. In other words, a faster way to shapelier legs and a tight butt!

For a darker, Darth Vader style look, try the Easytone Reinspire II Black/Grey, £74.99!

So you want living proof that these bad boys work? 2 Words ladies (and gents!) - KELLY BROOK! Yes, Kelly loves her EasyTones and shows it in this vid!

So, you see, I really need a pair of these shoes so I can run around strutting my daily life stuff with the end result being a Kelly Brook behind and a red-faced friend who fell off her Wii Fit in some ridiculously shaped boat-like Skechers ;) Agreed? I thought so.

Check out more of the Easytone range here at Cloggs, who also stock FitFlop too :)

First Light Cosmetics - Amazing Minerals - REVIEW!

No comments

I was lucky enough to be sent some products to try from First Light Cosmetics, the official supplier to Britain's Next Top Model! They say that their name is 'a reflection of the freedom offered by this new generation of cosmetics that we hope will transform the way you use and think about make-up', and I have to agree!

The products are made from 100% pure minerals which means free of chemicals and preservatives that are used to “fill out” many other cosmetics. They are also hypo-allergenic, noncomedogenic and contain an SPF to protect from the daily sun. PLUS, they come sweetly packaged in pouches that are produced by women in the Mabinti Center in Tanzania, an economically disadvantaged part of the world which needs help to develop their own commercial enterprises. The aim is to empower people to become economically independent which is just fantastic :)

Tara is always singing the praises of mineral foundation, but I was yet to have a good experience with it. The ones I have tried have either been terrible colour matches and/or are difficult to blend, leaving me with patchy coverage - ugh! Until now...

First Light Cosmetics were kind enough to send me the Mineral Foundation, £12.99, the shade I chose was Winter Bloom. The range of shades for this product is extensive, yet so easy to figure out that I got it totally right first time! I tapped a little out into the lid and grabbed my fluffy kabuki, it went on like a dream! I didn't need to use a lot and can describe the texture as a light loose powder. As soon as the brush swept across my skin it disappeared, leaving a matte, natural looking finish which was surprisingly well covered! My skin is not perfect, I have small blemishes and I found they were covered just as well as they are when I use my liquid foundation, yet the colour and finish was much better. This result lasted ALL day, amazing staying power for a powder product! FLC Mineral Foundation has definitely converted me, I would buy this foundation in a second!

Secondly, FLC sent me the Mineral Eye Light, £9.99. A soft, light emitting loose powder for concealing puffiness, redness and dark circles while diminishing signs of fatigue. The jar is small but you don't need a lot at all, I simply dabbed it under my eyes from my fingertip. I barely had to blend before the area looked noticeably brighter, as if I had used a highlighter concealer pen, but more natural (I've always found the pens to look either very 'white' or too 'tan' under my eyes). Again, the look lasted all day and I didn't have to reapply once. Love it.

Last but not least, FLC treated me to their Mineral Eyeshadow in Bali Sunset, £5.99. Bali Sunset is a warm, light green shot through with gold, stunning to be honest and a colour I don't actually have anything like in my vast collection or eyeshadows! Being loose powder, I applied it with a soft brush first and was pleasantly surprised at how pigmented it was even when stroked onto the lid lightly, pressing it onto the lid with a sponge applicator just made it POP hard - amazing. Staying power was first rate, yes it faded slightly through the day to look more gold into the night than green, but in such a pretty way I wasn't bothered, and most importantly it DID NOT CREASE!! The colour range is beautiful, with Midnight Mauve standing out as a potential next purchase!

So overall, I'm LOVING First Light Cosmetics! You should definitely give these products a whirl, why not try some sample sizes at £1.50 with free postage? With the choice of then deducting the price of up to 2 samples against the purchase of a full size jar, there's not much to lose!

You can follow FLC on Twitter and Facebook for updates and giveaways!

BIG thanks to First Light Cosmetics for letting me try their wares, consider me converted guys!

J - Finally mineralising her mush ;)

SPIRIT HOODS - Possibly the best headwear in the world right now, and ever?!

Sunday 19 September 2010

So if you've never seen them, SpiritHoods are AMAZING animal inspired hood wraps with SOUL!

They come in full styles (with scarf and mittens attached) starting at $119 or 'half' hat styles that start at just $59, and just have me SO excited for winter! Made with only quality faux fur so as good as they look and feel, you can be sure that no furry friends are harmed in the name of fashion! Each hood is handmade and therefore no two are the same! It's just like furry couture! I LOVE the way they describe each item on the webby, giving each one a personality description to help you decide which hood your spirit belongs in!

There's SO many to choose from on the online store, here's a few of my faves but I HIGHLY suggest you go check the full range out at SPIRIT HOODS STAT!

Leopard, $99 - Intelligent, Free Spirited, Leader.

Night Hawk - $79Intuitive - Wise - Protective.

Panda 1/2, $49 - Balance, Solitude, Strength.

Husky, $99 - Brave - Adventurous - Loyal

These are just a snippet from the range, there's SO many more to see including Zebra, Husky and Bear to name but a few! There are Spirithoods for men too, so if your other half is a bit of an animal, have a look and pick him one out!

I am absolutely desperate for one of these! I'd love the Black Jaguar or Black Cat Half, being a sucker for a pretty kitty! I won't be able to sleep tonight now. SH, I totally blame you for my dark circles tomorrow!

They also believe in the conservation and protection of both the planet and its animals, and to help give back they actively donate a portion of the online proceeds to several non-profit organizations dedicated to wildlife conservation, they call this Product Blue and it makes for an interesting read, so if you can, please try to buy from the official online store if you are choosing a Product Blue style and help the precious animals that you are emulating! :)

Which one are you?

J - Strength of the bear, speed of a cougar...oh no sorry, that was Braveheart. I'm purr of a kitty ;)

Call Me Superman Baby, I'm Looking For A Cape...

I want a cape! I ideally want the GORGEOUS Chloe cape I featured on our main page this week but as I'm not currently a rich girl, I have to settle.

I first fell in love with capes when Gwen Stefani's L.A.M.B. Fall 2005 Collection dropped (the best LAMB collection EVER).

Source: 1
Vintage Cape by L.A.M.B.

I'm gutted I didn't buy one at the time, but it's 5 years on & I'm now on the hunt for the perfect alternative!

Cooper & Stollbrand for ASOS Checked Cape, £200- ASOS.

I absolutely adore this. If I wore it, I think I'd say "It's elementary Dear Watson!" at least once a day. Too cool.

Emory Cape by Alice + Olivia, $495-Shopbop.

Do Alice + Olivia ever get it wrong? The shoulder embellishment adds a modern twist to this classic woollen cape. It even comes with a hood? YUM.

Boxy Piped Cardi, £55- Warehouse.

Oh how I wish this was longer! It's a mini cardi cape. It's gorgeous and ridiculously affordable. I'm definitely buying it.

Military Cape, £75- Warehouse.

ATTENTION! I've seen this in store and it's super cute. Classic & smart, guaranteed to remain in style.

Zip detail cape, £65- Warehouse.

Perfect for Autumn, I'm not sure if this would keep you warm in the chilly British winter though! I'm a HUGE khaki fan & I think the zip-up arm holes are a funky little detail.

Candy, £195- Reiss.

Quick! Hide this from J. The perfect rockstar cape. Quilt stitch detail on the front with an asymmetrical zip. I'm in love. Perhaps this cape was made for us!?

Duffle Cape, £75- Oasis.

Duffle coats always make me think of Paddington Bear. Another classic black cape but this time with a detachable hood, allowing you to change your look slightly. Smart yet still cute!

Hmmm, so after discovering all of these gorgeous capes, I'm now finding it tricky to pick a favourite!? I do quite fancy the thought of pretending to be Sherlock Holmes...But I do wish I was a rockstar. Thoughts!?

T (wannabe superwoman!) <3

Gorgeous Jewellery ALERT! Tiger Lily Jewellery.

No comments
Native Californian and Malibu resident Heather Gardner presents Tiger Lily, a jewellery line that blends nature's beauty within a modern trend-setting composition.

It was named after the Tiger Lily, a wildflower that rarely blossoms near streams in the canyons of Malibu. It was selected as the company's name in honor of Gardner's love for the natural beauty of this Earth.

Each Collection is carefully designed to represent the purest core of a woman who is both a tiger and a lily in the mental, emotional, and physical sense; a woman who is exhilarated by adventure and exploration but also envelopes herself in the elegance and glamour that life offers.

Below are some of my favourite picks:

Sierra Smoky Quartz Earring, $200- Tiger Lily.
The smokey quartz gemstones are gold edged and dangle from two Swarovski Golden Shadow crystals.

These earrings are absolutely exquisite. Ideal for adding a touch of sophistication to any outfit.

Large Ethiopian Base Metal Single Strand Necklace, $50- Tiger Lily.

Available in Brass, Silver Toned & Copper:

Perfect for layering! One of the awesome things about Tiger Lily jewellery, is that it all fits so well with each other. The more you layer, the hotter it looks!

As a global traveller (like me!) and outdoor adventurer, Gardner seeks to capture the essence of the world's beauty in her designs.

The colour palate of the minerals, gemstones, and crystal selected reflect the colors she has discovered in the places that inspire her most.

One of the Tiger Lily bestsellers is this delicate crystal necklace:

Signature Swarovski Large Crystal Necklace, from $165- Tiger Lily.

Available in a variety of beautiful colours:

You can customize the length and you can also buy it in a smaller size, if you're looking for something a little more subtle. However for me, it's all about the glitz and glam.

Again, fantastic for layering with other Tiger Lily pieces, this extremely sweet necklace can also double as a bracelet if you want to mix it up a little!

Boho Tusk Necklace, from $200- Tiger Lily.

Vanessa Hudgens likes this Tusk Necklace so much, that she's been spotted in it twice! I love how it looks great with a graphic tee with jeans and then for an evening look...

Double Chain Ivory Feather Boho Necklace, $235- Tiger Lily.

...She wears it with the same necklace in Tortoise in a shorter length and the Double Chain Ivory Feather Boho Necklace. When worn over a gorgeous maxi dress the whole look changes, she looks beautiful and perfectly accessorized! TL really is so versatile.

They are also committed to global awareness and action!

That means no spending guilt. If you purchase their jewellery not only will you be totally stylin', you will giving to those less fortunate than us.

Be sure to check out their full collection on their official website. They are also stocked by one of our favourite online boutiques in the UK- BunnyHug! Follow them on both Twitter & Facebook for all the latest Tiger Lily news.

T has a new jewellery obsession! Thank you Tiger Lily! XoX
