Blush Board: Party Time

It’s been a while since I’ve put together a Blush Board, so I thought I’d put all of my pinning to good use for a party-centric piece. There’s lots more to come on Slappshop.com, but in the meantime, here’s a little inspiration to keep you going!

Blush’s Favourite Film Heroines – Get the Look

From Zoolander’s pout to Scarlett O’Hara’s velvet curtain dress, motion picture has long provided us with iconic style moments. Costume designers fill audiences with the urge to emulate the complex, flawed and painfully stylish protagonists of the silver screen. Who doesn’t long to don their best jewellery and an LBD for casual breakfast window shopping […]

Get the Look – Ballerina Style

What woman hasn’t felt the pull of ballet at some stage in her life? The music, the stage, the exquisite combination of femininity and strength; all pulled together with pretty French names, blush pinks and feathery layers of tulle. I first watched Swan Lake on Easter Sunday when I was five or six. High on […]

Blush Asks… Charlotte Mensah

It’s not often that I come away from an interview so pumped, but after my chat with Charlotte Mensah, I left feeling so inspired by somebody who had experienced personal tragedy at an early age, but instead of letting it knock her down, endeavoured to achieve so much. She’s won British Afro Hairdresser of the Year twice, […]

Blush’s Top 5 Beauty Looks @ London Fashion Week – AW16

London Fashion Week seems to have finished as quickly as it started and whilst there was lots of front row action going on: like Marc Jacobs flying in to see his protegé A.V Robertson and new kids on the scene Anais Gallagher and Lottie Moss carrying on what their fam started; this season backstage seemed to […]

Blush Loves… #Fringespo (Bangs are Back for Good, or at least until mine grow out!)

Sitting at home this Christmas, I found myself flicking through old Vogue magazines in the TV’s absence. Whilst I adore print and promised myself I’d never be lured in by the bright backlights of a tablet; every month I watch myself open the rather undesirable, but always enticing grey mail bag my monthly Vogue comes […]

Blush’s Favourite Fashion & Beauty Looks from 2014

2014 has been a crazy year. In the beauty world we got to grips with make-up again after seasons of fuss free hair and make-up barely there. This year was all about the bronze eye, teenage kohl and layering up on lashes. On the streets seemingly every star was spotted in their monogrammed Burberry blanket […]

Making the case for the cat eye – Kendall Jenner

Jenner, who had a remarkable debut season, for any model, walked for Marc Jacobs, Giles and Givenchy, many thanks to her family friend Riccardo Tisci and the fact that Love Editor Katie Grand is […]

Warpaint – Festival Beauty Inspiration

Spring means one thing in the minds of most fashion editors- crisp white or bold colour.  For Spring’s editorials, it seems make-up artists are ignoring the ‘no make-up make-up’ look lauded by the catwalk, because to be fair, where’s the fun in that? With Coachella in our minds, it feels like the best time to […]
