Bargain Of The Month

The Warehouse Oulet will be closing at the beginning of March. You'll still be able to purchase bits online but it's not the same as shopping in store. How am I going to manage....this shop hooks me up with the hottest fashion trends. I picked up these trousers and they fit like a glove.

Chanel Iman Models For Vogue Spain

I have never been a big Chanel Iman fan but she's beginning to grow on me (I think I'm watching too many episodes of America's Next Top Model). She sure knows how to model and at the mere age of 20 she is doing well for herself. She's appeared in The Victoria Secret’s Fashion Show, modelled for Cover Girl, Gap, DKNY you name it. I love the floral designs and statement jewellry in the pictures below. Strike a pose!

What to watch on TV?

It's the season for hibernating as the weather outside is dire plus its way too cold! So what else is left to do but enjoy the comfort of your nice warm house and watch TV. I've recently jumped onto the Glee bandwagon as everyone on the face of the planet is talking about it. I watched it for the first time on Sunday and I'm now officially hooked. Season 6 of Desperate Housewives returns tonight- good times! And I've recently got back into Heroes’ again. Hoorah for American programming!

Week 15 Of My Journey Geting To New York.

This week I signed all tenancy agreements and now I just have to pay off the rent whoody whooo! Now that accommodation is finalised, I really need to get a job placement secured. I think this will be the most challenging aspect of this trip.

I managed to put some more money into my NYC savings this week which is always good thing. I’m hoping that I can save at least £400 a month it’s a bit of feat as my earnings have gone down but hopefully I’ll find another source of income.

Thankfully the weekend shifts I’ve been doing since September, that I was quick to turn my nose up too have been extended till March. These shifts have really been a God send and enabled me to pay off my debts and put some money aside.

I’ve been in a thoughtful mood this week with regards to what I want to achieve from my 5 weeks in New York. At first it was to get to a job offer and then I’d move to America and live happily ever after (Is there such thing?). Upon reflection what I’d really like from this trip is for my work ethic to be like none other. I’m tired of just doing enough to coast by, I know my potential and I need to start showing it! I want more confidence to grow even more! I want to come out of my comfort zone, scary but in the end life changing. I want to leave a lasting impression with every single company I work for. This is something I didn’t do in 2008. Most importantly I don’t want to come back with regrets, wishing I’d done this and that. I need to give New York a good run and really got for it!

Best Dressead At The S.A.G Awards

Kate Hudson in a backless, white, Emilio Pucci floor length dress.

I LOVE this dress, the length, the colour and the cut 10/10. I wish I could wear a back less dress, but it's just not an option. They look so sexy without baring too much flesh- very classy!!!

Diane Kruger wearing a custom Jason Wu creation.

I like the mustard colour of the dress and the statement red lipstick. One shouldered dresses are still big this season so Diane is bang on trend with this creation. Simple jewellery and mini clutch completes this look.

Lea Michelle in a green Catherine Malandrino dress.

This dress is divine and the cut is so flattering on Lea. Mariah take note this is how you wear a low cut dress without exposing too much cleavage. Simple tiffany jewellery keeps this looks simple, not even a clutch bag can be seen.

Drew Barrymore in in a navy blue, Monique Lhuillier strapless.

Drew Barrymore strikes again! I love a colour and this royal blue dress really stands out against the red carpet. Drew Barrymore is blossoming nicely! However I don't like the dramatic, asymmetrically hemmed tier. Hair and make-up again looks flawless.

Jennifer Carpenter in a sleeved white mini dress.

Jennifer opted for a short dress and manages to carry it off. I still want a long sleeved mini dress. I like the raised structured shoulders and folded over pleat design on the front. I don't normally like white and black but this style is a breath of fresh air amongst the typical ball gown styles.

Gabourey Sidibe in a cobalt blue sleeved dress.

I prefer this look on Gabourey to last weeks Golden Globes dress. I love cobalt blue that alone gets a point. This dress is more flattering and the sleeves give the illusion that she has a shawl on. Her hair and make-up looks nice and she looks more confident this week.
