Get the Look: Lipgloss & Chainmail

The noughties revival has been gently gaining pace since Kylie Jenner decided she was bringing back the Von Dutch cap. It was a little soon, but her intentions were spot on. We’ve since seen the return of plastic chokers, asymmetric hems and can you believe it, cowl necks. Kendall Jenner sealed the deal on her […]

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!

Get the Look – Trans-seasonal Trenches and Dusters

I can’t count the number of times I’ve received compliments on my trench coat. Perhaps it’s because, it is not a trench in the traditional sense of the word, but more of a utilitarian duster. It billows in the wind, has handy zipper pockets and is a seasonless graphite. Over the last couple of weeks, […]

Blush Loves: Skinny Scarves, Hair Ties and Chokers

My favourite season is upon us and I have to say I’m rather happy to see my 15 deniers again. Autumn/Winter, for me is the time you can have the most fun with your style. My Autumn style tends to be a twist on old classics. Silk blouses, skinny jeans and fur coats never fail […]

Get the Look – The White Jumpsuit

With a month left of sun it’s time to pull out all the stops. Wear that broderie anglaise playsuit that you’ve been far too precious with, or that bright sheer chiffon maxi you still haven’t found the right occasion for. Those high-waisted skinnies, can wait another month. I’m yet to actually purchase a jumpsuit; I […]

Get the Look – The High Pony – inspired by Prada AW15

Weddings, festivals, raves and beach days, summer calls for a host of hairstyles, but there’s one that’s seen a resurgence this season- the humble high pony. A schoolgirl favourite, the high ponytail is the perfect low maintenance look. For day or night, nothing is more nonchalant. So versatile is the easy up-do that Lily James […]

Get the Look – Neon

At this time of year there’s usually a micro trend that feeds into our collective subconscious and lets us know that summer’s on its way.  Last summer it was orange lipstick, this year it’s all about a flash of fluorescence. Neon has been popping up consistently since Gigi Hadid wore her colour-blocked triangle at the […]

Get the Look – Bold Lips for Bank Holiday

It’s bank holiday weekend and even though BBC says it will be raining I refuse to accept it. I will be in a pub garden somewhere with my sunnies on sipping on a cold pint of cider and black (I’m a classy bird!) Wherever you’ll be, I think this four day weekend calls for a […]

Blush loves… The Balmain sidey

If you’ve ever watched the Kardashians– and let’s face it, if you read Blush- you probably have, you’ll have also marvelled at the power of a parting. Whenever Kim, Khloe or Kourtney take to the camera to have their way too rational revaluation of whatever drama they’ve overcome that episode, you will often have gasped […]

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

Campaign Trailing – Berry Lips are Back for Givenchy Fall 2014

Berry lips have been off the radar for a while now, but for some reason last weekend- out of nowhere, I whipped out my Chanel, Rouge Coco Shine No.92. It was a sultry saturday evening, my eyes were a Nars shade of copper bronze, I’d caught the sun and it just seemed fitting. After a […]
