We had fun creating this super simple, easy and effective manicure that even the least ambidextrous person will be able to complete!
This cute look only requires one coat of sheer pink polish (and basecoat + topcoat if you so wish) so dries uber quick, perfect for those people who just have to have their nails painted but are short on time. The glitter tip? Easy as pie! Simply dap the brush along the tip of your nail until the desired amount of glitter is achieved (note: this doesn't have to be neat, it all adds to the effect!).

As the seasons change so do our wardrobes, and with the sun shining for fewer and fewer hours each day we must reluctantly put away those summer dresses and swap them out for a warmer alternative.
While the thought of a Winter full of rain, wind and snow may not be all that appealing, we can have fun experimenting with the styling possibilities of Autumn. Mixing and matching your existing summer pieces with winter ones can allow for layered up ensembles featuring cute jackets, coats, scarves and even beanies. All of which can be stripped back if the weather so kindly decides to give you a sneak peak back at the summer that was.
We've put together three of our favourite transeasonal looks that should keep you cosy when the chill hits but cool when the sun shines...

Paris Fashion Week has just passed and with this we have been seeing a plethora of street style snaps from various events around the city... Now, is it just us or do Parisian women seem to be just born with an immaculate sense of style?! Their classic styling is the envy of millions of women around the world...
We found this super cute book recently published called "Paris Street Style" written by Isabelle Thomas and Frederique Veysset. The book compiles interviews, quotes, illustrations and photographs from various sources in the fashion industry and everyday women to create an inspirational fashion bible of classic French style.
If you're looking to pick up some tips from fashionistas on the street we recommend checking out Street Peeper, a beautiful blog dedicated to street style snaps from all over the world.

Baroque style is a hot trend this Winter, having seen it popping up on and off the runway and both here and abroad we are loving this modern take. Our Art of Romance collection features the Baroque style in various printed pants, tops and sequin detailing. This trend is rooted in rich history which lends itself to plush velvet, metallic accents and jewel toned hues. Reminiscent of Kings and Queens from times gone by, we love that this can add that luxurious royal touch to any outfit. Check out a few of our favourite pieces above.

Macarons have been stealing the thunder of the cupcake as of late and it's only recently that we have given baking these little treats a go for ourselves. Notoriously difficult to make, we headed to the queen of home baking and craft – Martha Stewart. We found her recipe for French Macarons to be a winner (see result above), while a little finicky they are totally worth it! (Remember to convert the US oven temperatures!). We think these would be the perfect little Valentine’s gift for your special someone, they are so darn adorable and cost effective to make yourself so why not give them a go. If you want some further inspiration be sure to check out Pinterest...

We recently stumbled upon this fab little website named The Every Girl. Now, we have a bit of a blog obsession in the office and we love pinging links back and forth to each other with the latest posts from a range of sites (read: Cat photos, mostly!), so when we discovered this little gem we were very excited…
The Every Girl is a website that is - for every girl, it features write ups of entrepreneurial women, financial advice, entertaining ideas, fashion tips and beauty tutorials all accompanied by some gorgeous photography. One of our favourite features on the site is the Handbook which features how-to guides on very useful topics such as How to Budget and Pantry Essentials.
We love that this blog is focused on encouraging and nurturing success among women in any field they choose to be in – a value strongly held by the Max Foundation. This is one website worth checking out, Forbes even ranked it in Top 10 Sites for Millennial Women in 2012 – so go go go!
