Blush Loves… Paris

I stepped off the metro, on the first Thursday in February to the smell of croissant. I followed my offline Citymapper to my hotel a four minute walk away, undoubtedly looking like the tourist I so clearly was- dressed in a giant hat, wide legged trousers, a blazer, and once-upon-a-time white Reeboks, peeking out at […]

Look of the day – Amber Heard & Rosie H-W

When it’s cold and rainy outside, it’s hard to look chic, yet somehow Amber Heard makes it look easy. The American model and actress was pictured out in New York yesterday in skinny jeans and front-zipped ankle boots, a grey and white chunky scarf and a belted, wool trench coat. Heard kept the look effortless […]

Winter Revival – White Nails

White nails were a huge trend last summer, but for some reason I wasn’t feeling it- I’m more of a tropical nail girl in summer. They were seen on everyone from Rihanna to Miley Cyrus, they graced red carpets, campaigns and street style blogs.  It seemed the trend had disappeared along with summer’s warmth, until […]

Although this season and next, are all about a more pared-back look, bronzer is the key to adding dimension to the face- whether you’re creating contours or highlighting. I first discovered bronzer at 18, around the age I fell in […]

Look of the day- Kate Moss & Lindsey Wixson

It’s been a while, and for that I am sorry. The SAG awards proved unfruitful in the style stakes so the Blush’s first 2013 post has been saved by a couple of Supers.   One- an icon, a Brit, a veteran; the other- an all-American sweetheart with a killer pout and trademark gap.    Notorious […]
