At first glance I thought this was Gwen Stefani but quickly realized this is the always fashion forward Heidi Klum... What do you think if her black and white ensemble? The cropped jacket is so chic and I love the red platform pumps, they totally complete the look with a punch of colour...

Ok I may have over indulged slightly but I found 3 amazing striped tops at H&M today! I found a red and white 3/4 puff sleeve tee, a black and white cute cap sleeve tee and and navy and cream long sleeve oversize tee... I had to have them all, is that greedy of me? For all 3 it was under $40 which is a bargain ad a half!!! Somehow I just don't feel guilty with all the outfit possibilities I have in mind, especially when I look at these lovely ladies in stripes too!

When I saw Lauren Conrad's outfit at the party for the series finale of The Hills I remembered why I adore her style! This sparkly mini dress is perfectly balanced with her nude pumps, she looks totally chic and fresh in this party perfect ensemble... I found her shoes in nude patent leather on the Aldo website, the style is called MOOS and they are only $80!! I think they have a spot in my closet calling their name...

If anyone can do the red carpet with va-va voom it's Angelina Jolie!! This is just another stunning look from her recent press tour for Salt... She is emulating old Hollywood glamour in this red Versace gown with her coveted pout in the same hue (this looks like Mac Russian Red lipstick which every girl needs to own!)... This look left me speechless, she is totally gorgeous~

I love this Valentino dress on Olivia and Zoe, they have both made it their own with the perfect shoes and accessories and they make this lace frock look totally chic and fresh... I actually don't have any lace in my wardrobe, I tend to shy away from it for fear of looking too eighties or old fashioned but these ladies have inspired me!! I am heading out for a little shopping with my lovely mum today so perhaps a romantic lace top or dress will catch my eye... I'll keep you posted, what do you think id lace a do or a don't??

I know I have a scarf addiction and I probably have over 60 at this point... but how could I resist these adorable scarves that I found on ebay today for $8 each and $5 shipping, with the exchange rate they were $20 total!! I love the white square fringe scarf with red paisley flowers, this will look awesome with a white tank and skinny jeans... I also totally love this pink leopard scarf, it is the perfect summer scarf that I will pair with an adorable black sundress and metallic gladiators... Check out the link if you are an ebay shopper too:

I bought two cute summer hats today, one is a fedora style and the other has more of a cowboy hat feel to it!! I can't wait to wear them, I have a few bbqs and a week at the beach coming up and I plan to enjoy them in style and properly topped!! Here are some of my favourite hat looks on some of my favourite celebs!! The added bonus, it's a great way to hide a bad hair day!!

I think every girl needs a pair of denim cutoffs in their summer wardrobe, don't you? They can vary in length as we can't all pull off the super shorty shorts that are out there!! I love the ones Rachel Bilson has been spotted wearing around town, they are the perfect length for her petite frame and they can be dressed up or down (I love them paired with her booties too!)... Not to mention they are a nice alternative to a sundress or skirt especially when it's too hot for your skinnies or boyfriend jeans... Check out Old Navy and The Gap right now for denim shorts, they are all on sale right now and there is a great variety of washes and styles to choose from!!

This was a recent bride that I had the pleasure of doing makeup for, Stacy is already a natural beauty but to create this elegant amazing look was so much fun! These are a few of my favourite pics of her from the wedding day... check out her gorgeous hair colour, she looked totally retro chic and this was before the dress was even on!!

These are two amazing makeup and hair looks on the lovely Jessica Alba! I adore a red stained lip but the smokey eyes and pale lip are so pretty too... What do you prefer for a night on the town? Oh the decisions us gals have to make sometimes!

I popped into the mall today and found a few great deals at Old Navy!! I bought this skirt for $15 and a cute ruffled tube dress for $20 in cobalt blue that will be great for the beach and 4 tanks for $7!! I tried on a few pairs of jeans (they are on for $25!!!) but unfortunately they just didn't work for me... I had limited time to shop today but everywhere I looked there were SALE signs... I must go back soon!!!

Ashley Greene is the latest breakout star from the Twilight movies and she is so stunning! We are seeing her all over magazine covers and at all the major red carpet events and she does not disappoint with her style and beauty... Ashley's hair colour is the perfect blend of warm honey highlights, I am coveting her long locks in this pic.. Looking at her hair makes me want to change it up and dye my hair again!! I love this soft loose curl ethereal look, its so romantic and effortlessly chic...

I am so in love with this cropped army green pant that all the celebs have been sporting around town... This is a fun take on a cargo pant, I love the tailored fit cuffed up and worn with a great pair of heels and a blazer... I have had my eye on an pair of olive crops at The Gap for a few weeks now but I've been waiting for them to go on sale, I think I may just have to splurge after seeing these pics now!! Are you loving this trend too??

I just bought the Summer Flutter collection by OPI... the colours are amazing!! I just painted my toes the bright pink Flower To Flower and it is the perfect punchy pink for summer... Catch Me In Your Net is a killer sea green metallic, Wing It is a pretty metallic purple and pink with a blue undertone and Flit A Bit is a creamy bright orange... I will manage to try them all before summer's end!! What colour are you sporting on your toes lately??

I just had to post these pics of Katy Perry, isn't she absolutely gorgeous?? She looks like a modern day pin-up girl, her makeup and hair are completely flawless and even though she has alot of makeup on she can totally pull it off ... I really like her with bangs better but the french braid is always cute and fun, looking at these pics makes me want to break out my false lashes and pile on the mascara!! I am also loving her super defined brows and matte pink lip, this is a look that every girl should try at least once...

Cameron Diaz has been walking alot of red carpets lately promoting her latest movie.... I am a huge fan of her style dressed up or down, I think she has an amazing body but I am on the fence on whether this dress works or not and I think it's all in the fit... What do you think, did Cam rock her green silk wrap dress last night? Her hair and makeup are killer though, I adore the red lip and glam do... Totally chic!

Sooo I may have made a trip to the mall today for a little summer deal shopping and let me say the trip was successful!! I bought 2 adorable pairs of shorts, 2 floaty boho tops and 3 pairs of cute metallic flip flops from Old Navy all on sale plus an additional 30% off for a grand total of $41.00... Woot!!... But my favourite deal of the day was this ruffle floral tube dress from American Eagle that I bought for just $24.95 (reg. $49.50)!! I can't wait to wear this, I tried it on with a thick brown leather waist belt and my favourite Nine West cognac wedge gladiator sandals and all I can say is "wowza!"... If you have a little cash to spare it is the time to shop, the summer sales are at their peak!!!

As much as I love everything about girly flirty clothing and I mean everything from pretty dresses to high waisted skirts to ruffled blouses at the end of the day I love my jeans... These are some of my favourite looks here, I love S.J.P and Rachel Bilson's boyfriend jeans and casual t-shirt looks and Kate Beckinsale is rocking her dark distressed skinnies and tank... When in doubt I always go for my jeans whether its a casual day with flats or a night on the town paired with stilettos, I think I am up to 12 pairs now... but there is always room for more! What are your favourite denim brands?

This is totally the perfect summer blush on actress Ali Larter... In the hot and humid weather you are better to try a cream or tint blush formula rather than a powder which tends to look a little harsh in the heat... Keep it super simple and blend your blush into the apples of your cheeks using your finger tips or a small makeup sponge (smile while your doing this to find your apples!) ... Benefit's all time best seller Benetint is a great product or try Cover Girl they carry a fantastic cream blush in 8 different shades... Use a pretty pink or peachy shade for summer and remember that less is more, you want to create a glow and not like a neon sign!!
