Celebrity Trend: Givenchy's $350 Rottweiler tee/hoodie

This year it has been on trend and celebrities such as Khloe Kardashian, Kylie Jenner and Nicole Richie were all spotted wearing the latest craze - Givenchy's $350 Rottweiler tee, Nicole has on a hoodie with the same Rottweiler design and I actually prefer that. It seems to be that even though it can seem a little cliché wearing the animal printed tee's there is something that their target audience and they seem to enjoy and get a thrill out of wearing them. It's not just women getting in on the trend and last year Kayne West donned a Riccardo Tisci-designed Givenchy Rottweiler top to an event. The same tee was also worn by Rihanna and Liv Tyler.

Amanda's Winter Wardrobe


I have been thinking about doing feature posts on my friend's styles for a while now but never actually got round to it due to been so busy with college work. I have now got back into things and I thought I'd make a start of it by doing a week on  my friend Amanda's winter wardrobe. I know a lot of people are against tights/leggings with shorts, but when in winter(especially living in Scotland) and you want to wear gotta wear the tights/leggings underneath to keep warm! 

Amanda has on a blue anorak, yellow knitted hat, purple knitted scarf, purple jumper, denim shorts with grey knitted leggings and black high-top wedged heels. If you are looking for hats/scarfs then you can check out my Wrapping Up for Winter Post and you I said some good sites like River Island, New Look where you will definitely find them and the knitted leggings. 

The reason I chose to post about this outfit choice was because a lot of people just think Jeans are the only type of clothing that will keep you warm in the winter, I'm not saying they won't but you can still keep in style and wrap up warm and this outfit makes that statement.

Best Dressed: MTV EMAs

Rita Ora had on a stunning red laced Marchesa gown that ruffled down at the bottom into a huge skirt and had a long train at the back.

Taylor Swift looked very elegant in a silver clingy dress that had a short train at the back and was full of detailed patterns at the top, there was also two cut outs at the sides that had sheer lace over it.

Alicia Keys had on quite a simple but gorgeous dress that done wonders for her figure, Alicia had on Stella McCartney's 'optical illusion' dress that was green, black and had two sheer panels at the sides. She matched it with a pair of silver heels.

It was the MTV EMA's recently and I have chosen my three best ladies of the night - Rita Ora, Taylor Swift and Alicia Keys. Congrats to Taylor who won three awards for 'Best Female Act', 'Best Live Act' and 'Best Look'.

Dakota Fanning covers InStyle Magazine for December Issue

Dakota Fanning is covering this month's InStyle Magazine, she is talking about various things in the magazine  her co-star Kristen Stewart, how she has managed to stay so humble and 'normal' in the movie industry and why she is drawn to her chosen genre of films. On Kristen Stewart's affair, she defends her by saying 'Why do you think you are the authority to judge people’s experiences?' and goes into further discussion. Also while chatting to InStyle through her photoshoot she says that the reason she has not went ''downhill'' like actors such as Lindsay Lohan and Macaulay Culkin is because 'The pure love of what I do. Making movies.' Dakota has been the centre of some controversy in the past such as the Marc Jacobs perfume Ad for "Oh Lola" it was banned in the UK after the Advertising Standards Authority judged that 'the ad could be seen to sexualize a child.' Dakota also discusses why she is drawn to such dramatic or sometimes distrubing roles in films which leads to some people questioning whether she's right for the role because of her age.

Emma Stone's Revlon Lipstick Butter and Lipstick Balm Stain

I know this isn't fashion, but why not add a little beauty into my blog..the perfect first post would be on Emma Stone of course, who just recently has being doing some work with Revlon on make-up. Emma is such a stunning girl and a lot of girls look up to her like myself so it was good to see her getting into something like this because normally I'm not a fan of the whole "celebrity" make-up stuff because it normally is crap and doesn't last but I wanted to give this a shot as I heard so many good review's. I was in Boots today and I was doing some testers and I honestly fell in-love with the bright pinks more than any other colour and started to get petrified as I thought there was no way that colour would suit me but surprisingly it actually did. 

I bought the Revlon - Just Bitten Kissable Lip Balm Stain : "LoveSick" and it really does stay on for longer than I thought it would, normally with lipstick at least once a girl gets it in her teeth and it's nasty, but with this crayon like design you can put it on perfectly to suit you as you are in control of the crayon. As someone said in a comment on the website "Great for lipstick-shy" because a lot of people are afraid of bold colours but this one gives you a nice glossy feel but doesn't stick on your hair!

I also bought the Revlon - ColorBurst Lip Butter : "Sweet Tart" The buttery texture makes it as a lipstick, lip balm and lip gloss all in one, it is very moisturising and has very good pigmentation. As you can see above it isn't that bright but again it stays on for longer, in the picture above it looks like quite a light pink but it's not actually, it's quite bright more like fuschia. 

Both Priced at £8

The picture above is the packaging it comes in and I definitely recommend to all and not just beauty geeks!

I know it's not that nice to be zoomed up into somebody's lips but I just thought it might give more girls a better idea of whether or not if it's their thing to buy.

Black Studded Bag - Primark : £12

I wanted to post about my new bag I bought last week from Primark, I actually found this online and it was priced at £30 on this random site I can't actually remember where from to be honest but I just love it! It's black with studs down the side and at the top near the handle. It can be carried on your shoulders with less than what a normal women would carry in their bag haha(ain't gonna happen) so moving on..It's a bag to be held by the arm. I am not a fan of these because I have notebooks and stuff from college but I thought I would give it a go and actually stop wearing my leopard print bag!! Wow...BIG step for me guys! I know it is quite simple in a way but it did really stand out for me! 

£12/ Primark

SPOILER: Blake Lively shoots Wedding scenes for final season of 'Gossip Girl', I know this is such a MAJOR spoiler for fans and many fans of the show will now know who she's getting married too but I thought I would rub his face out in paint and hands(haha) just in case you might start to guess and be right- If you do know then please do NOT post  a comment with the character's name or Actor's, If some fans prefer to wait then I want to respect their choice, especially as it's the final season. Moving on to the real reason of this post was Serena's wedding dress, just wow, Blake Lively looked absolutely stunning shooting these scenes in a long stunning gold and cream strapless dress, complete with corset top and princess-style tulle skirt. I cannot wait to see these scenes but will be very sad as this is the end.

Willa Holland talks about her new role in new superhero show 'Arrow'

O.C fans will know her as Kaitlin Cooper or Gossip Girl fans will know her as outspoken model called Agnes Andrews and in both shows she was no disappointment. I enjoyed her in both shows myself and she certainly adds something different which she will take with her to new superhero show 'Arrow' - Willa plays Thea Queen.

She told Jezebel Magazine: "The fact it was based on a DC Comics book, and the fact that I would get to play a superhero. I don't want to spoil anything... but every episode gets more and more awesome." 

Willa plays the younger supportive sister of Oliver (leading character) and although she does not have to wear a superhero costume, she still wanted to be in good shape. She told Jezebel Magazine: "Now I do Pilates and just try to keep my body in motion-walking around doesn't really do enough, so I have to do something else.

Arrow is shown on SKY1 in the UK, Mondays at 8pm and I will definitely be watching it. - The trailer is below if you want to have a sneak peek to see if you might be interested.
