Zatchels x Hello Kitty

Last week Zatchels unveiled its latest collaboration this time with one of my favourite characters, Hello Kitty. British fashion brand Zatchels renowned for their desirable satchels have teamed up with Hello Kitty as part of the Hello Kitty Loves UK Manufacturing initiative for 2012 to produce this debut collection of handmade bags featuring my favourite feline. They're the perfect fashion accessory for all Hello Kitty fans!

The satchels will be available in three sizes: 11.5", 13" and 14.5" ranging from £110-130. You can customise your satchel adding a handle and detachable straps. The purple bows design is my favourite in the collection. 

The saddle bags are available in small at £65 and a larger size costing £75. I love the design on the polka dot bag with Hello Kitty peeking out from behind one of her signature bows! 

The Kitty Town Barrel Bag features Hello Kitty's world and has a contrasting bright pink strap. It's priced at a more purse friendly £55.

The bags will be available online soon and in selected retailers across the UK.

What do you think of the collaboration?

Kardashian Kollection

This week saw reality TV's most famous sisters hit the UK to launch their 'Kardashian Kollection' for Dorothy Perkins. The Kardashian super brand has turned its hand to fashion with the girls collaborating with the high street retailer to design the Kollection comprising their signature styles in time for the Christmas party season.

Renowned for their bodycon style the Kollection features figure hugging dresses alongside feminine blouses and tailored shorts and jackets. The girls influence can be seen throughout the line with lots of gold, sequins and animal prints.

If you want to snap up a piece of Kim's style, admire Kourtney's wardrobe or see yourself as more of a Khloe this Kollection is for you!

Purple Mesh Dress - £40                              Cream Collar Blouse - £35

Animal Pussybow Blouse - £35                         Black Tux Shorts - £30

Black Sequin Jacket - £50                                 Green V Neck Dress - £40

Gold Pleat Dress - £40                         Gold Glitter Clutch - £30

Nude Lace Skirt - £35                          Smoke Print Crop Blazer - £50

Although the Kollection won't appeal to all tastes I was pleasantly surprised when I first saw the lookbook and it wasn't all skin-tight dresses! I love the mixture of lace, prints, sequins and flashes of metallic with lots of the above items creeping on to my wishlist. I most admire Kourtney's glamorous style but think I'm a bit of a Khloe too with my love of animal prints! 

The Kollection is available in sizes 8-16 at a range of selected Dorothy Perkins stores and online.

Which Kardashian sister's style do you most admire?

Tried and Tested... Cloud Nine Hair Iron

After a recent incident with my trusty GHDs (..thankfully they were able to be fixed!) I decided it was time to invest in some Cloud Nine Hair Irons. I'd been considering buying some for a while since my hairdresser first recommended them to me and I'm really glad I did!

Cloud Nine hair stylers were developed by the creators of the original GHDs. As well as leaving my hair super straight and shiny whenever my hairdresser used them the main attraction for me was the temperature control. As much as I love my GHDs I can't help but worry they're frying my hair. The Cloud Nine Irons feature a one touch temperature control switch ranging from low-100° to high-20 and I find the mid setting of 150° is hot enough to straighten my hair. 

The Irons heat up in under 20 seconds which is ideal if you're short of time in a morning! The glossy black ceramic plates leave my hair looking shiny and staying straight all day. Since I've started using them I've had numerous compliments on my hair with people saying how sleek it looks and even asking if I've had it cut.. so they pass the test in my eyes! 

Another handy feature of the Cloud Nine Irons is the protective heat guard that comes with them. The heat guard can be fitted onto the Irons whilst they are still hot meaning you can pack them away if needs be without having to wait for them to cool down. 

They are fitted with worldwide voltage and come with an extra two pin European plug meaning there's no problems with taking them on holiday! 

The Original Iron is priced at £129.95, there is also a Wide Iron for £129.95 ideal for thicker hair and the Micro Iron ideal for shorter hair styles is £54.95.

Have you tried Cloud Nine Hair Irons?
