Nothing like new additions to your jewellery collection. What makes it even more special is your friends gifting them to you and they know what you’d like!! Totally in love right now.

The ring and leather wrap-around bracelet is from Juicy Couture. Now this brand is quite controversial where some people call it “chavy” (non-english people please google the word :P) BUT!! In JC’s defence I would say I for one love most of their jewellery, may be not all of it but all the ones I’ve bought myself and I have been gifted I just LOVE them. Plus the pieces I’ve got don’t have any OTT branding on them so they’re great pieces and ones to keep! Yeah if you’re going to wear a JC tracksuit and UGG boots then I’m sorry but that would be classed as “chavy”. But you have to make sure you wear the brand the right way. FYI! you can never wear Paul’s Boutique the “right” way. That brand is “chavtastic” as it’s best! I think I’ve over done the word “chavy” in this post.

My bestie knows what works for me! 😉

If you’ve got cash to splash then you have designer options like Hermés, Chloe, Celine and Cartier etc. I have spotted the Hermés cuff bracelets quite a lot and it is on my wish list!

Check out a few I’ve spotted.

What arm candy have you been sporting lately? Do share! Till the next one xxxx

So!! How have my lovely followers/readers been recently? London is fast becoming the North/South Pole (whichever you prefer) and I am hoping one of these days it will actually snow in MY part of London rather than the measly ol’ frost!

Okay I am going to make a confession and I call it my guilty pleasure- Ireadtheentertainmentsectionofdailymaileveryday!! There!  I said it. I’m sure you get that my lack of spaces in that sentence was deliberate??

Any way, this post is going to cover the celebrity pictures I come across on the said paper.

Ok, so up first is our very own Liverpudlian, a famous WAG in her own right, Ms Alex Gerrard. I do like her style actually. She is always quite trendy and styles herself really well. It’s good she kept her makeup understated and focused on the eyes. I think anything more would’ve been an overkill. LOVE the Isabel Marant boots. Quite a few celebs have been seen wearing them around town. I love their red version too. They’re called the Isable Marant Berry boots with cut out appliqué. For £670 they’re definitely going to leave a dent in your bank account! To round off this look, I’m impartial to faux fur (not sure if it is fake in Alex’s case) and love the coat!

The next celeb is our very own X-factor judge, Tulisa not-going-to-try-spelling-lastname. Her style’s a bit hit and miss. Some times she looks nice and some times she does NOT!  Anyone who’s been following X-Factor would’ve been following the fashion choices of Tulisa. Needless to say, Nicole won hands down (not that I’m pitting them against each other……. On second thought, I AM!) One thing to remember about fierce footwear that Tulisa is wearing in this pic- DON’T wear chunky ankle boots if you’ve got slightly..um chubby is definitely not the right word here because she’s not…Actually she’s got short legs and these boots are making her legs look chunky. Not loving the dress, hairstyle, the belt around the waist with the gold studs…NO NO NO!

Moving on.

Ms Karolina K-k-k-k-urkova! One word for this look. FIERCE!!

Love the whole look. Very sharp, eye-popping colour, great way of breaking the look by adding black peep toe shoes and bag. And the best accessory of all- her dazzling smile! She ain’t a supermodel for nothing.

Talking of supermodels. The other Victoria’s Secret angel who’s been getting massive amount of coverage is Ms Miranda Kerr. She’s followed around by paparazzi while taking flights, juggling her motherly duties with the cutest baby of all, going to work or business meetings and STILL looking fabulous. I love her and her style. She makes all this look so effortless. When I’m a mummy, I still hope I keep my sense of style and figure (??).

Love the smart look of her outfit. The Givenchy bag is one of my favourites and so are the Miu Miu shades she’s rocking. I do love Miranda’s collection of sunnies. She’s got some cool pairs.

Like her, I love buying sunglasses. I mean, living in London where there’s hardly any sun, most of you would think it’s a bit much. But hey! can’t help it. So my favourite one at the moment is the leopard print one in the middle. These sunnies are part of Miu Miu’s Fall 2011 collection. If anyone of you out there who loves me and wants to buy something nice for me this Christmas then I wouldn’t mind mentioning the one in the middle is on my wish list. *hint* *hint*

Right! Next up is none other than the lady who holds the Best Derriere spot- Pippa Middleton. She snapped here heading to her friend’s wedding reception in Northern Ireland. I like her choice of outfit. She balanced the blue with a camel coloured hat and an orange bag. I’m glad she didn’t go too matchy-matchy! Love the fur around the shoulders. All in all, a well pulled together outfit.

While I am commenting on Ms Middleton, she was snapped walking arm in arm with her girlfriend. Her friend seems to be the risk taker and seems to be having fun with her outfit. Love the headpiece. I’m not sure if the flowers are part of her hat or they’re separate but either way, they’re are great attention grabber. I love how she’s matched the red clutch to the red flower in her hair and the way she’s cinched her waist with a belt. However, I do not like her choice of footwear. No matter how cold it is, I feel boots for a wedding are not appropriate footwear. You need to be a bit more formal which, sadly, these boots are not. But I definitely love the rest of the outfit.

Who has seen One Tree Hill? If you have then obviously you know about Sophia Bush. I am so used to seeing her in shoulder length slightly curly hair with a middle parting that the fringe is a nice change. It is definitely suiting her. And I like the casual-bordering-on-going-out look. I like the plaid print in her jacket finished with leather sleeves. A very versatile jacket that can be worn during the day or at night. I like.

Speaking of adding leather to the look, I admire Kristen Stewart’s looks. They are flawless every single time. I don’t know if I should credit her, her stylist of both of them. But they are doing an amazing job. I have been following her red carpet looks and there wasn’t one occasion where I could criticise her. Even in this look, it’s understated yet sharp. You don’t need to add anything else. Love the hair, the make up, the outfit and great job of ending the look with those red shoes. (I WANT THEM!)

There is no article about celebrity fashion without a mention of Ms Paltrow. A fashionista in her own right, this ageless beauty is a true fashion maven. Even on her flight back from Dubai, she is bringing home her effortless chic style. I love red! and I love the shape of this jacket. It looks really comfortable- loose sleeves, big collar and paired with skinny jeans; it really accentuates her figure really well. A bit of bling is always good so no wonder she needs those sunnies! And finished off that look with that bag- love the colour and it sits really well with the whole outfit. 10/10!!

And last but not the least. I mean all I can say to this is…

                                                                            BITCH PLEASE!!!!

Working the whole look doesn’t always refer to the clothes. It also refers to how you accessorise that whole look. Ever since I lost (read SOMEONE STOLE) my B&W C5 In ear headphones, I have been deprived of the musical experience my ears sooo badly deserve! And so like any normal person who wants a knowledgable opinion, I decided to search (google) the “intra webs” and voila! URBANEARS caught my eye straight away. Pardon me for browsing the UK Ask Men website but they had some good review about these babies!

“Style is key with these handsome headphones. Delightfully cushioned, these combine a cool, minimal design with matt rubbery texture and a subtle and comfy fabric headset. Add to that reasonable quality, full sound and a lightweight build and the result is a brilliant set of headphones suited to everyday use. For a sweet social feature, the ear cups also contain an extra headphone jack to plug in a second set, meaning you can share music with a friend/anyone who might require a bit of musical education.

And so I ordered the Plattan Plus Grape Headphones. Love the colour, love the simple design and LOVE the whole fun look. Let’s just wait and see how good they really are. All I know is “They betta WERK!!”

Their Plattan Harris Tweed version seems to be so popular, it has sold out already!! At £86 including shipping they don’t come cheap but if you want good music (which remains to be seen) AND style, then at least you’re getting the whole deal here compared to the Dre’s or the Bose. Plus they look more fun and cool!

Hah! A cheeky way to turning around that jacket potato joint Spud-u-like. Don’t sue me!! 😛

So tell me. Is it just Zara or every where I look, they’re going crazy about studs?! Well not that I am complaining because I am loving the details of studs on jackets, shoes and tops! Obviously I had to indulge in some stud-lovin’ too. Bought these beauties from Zara for £69.99. You should still be able to get your hand on one if you’re lucky!! Click here to buy the pair. xxx
