MASSIVE TOPSHOP FAIL.


Well, I’m all for abit of change but not only is the new Topshop.com a massive copy of AllSaints.com (in design, layout, font, colour palette etc…) they’ve obviously not even proofed their website before launching it to LIVE. I had a massive ROFL at the copycat website this morning when I saw the blurb above and just had to share! I have a massive bug bear with spelling and mistakes!

Basically, when you click on NEW IN>SHOES it brings up the above page…. only the text is supposed to be for a Shorts category, not Shoes. But hold on, that’s not even the cherry on the cake! The cherry comes in the form of the blurb being, apparently, meant for TOPMAN.COM!

I wonder how long it is before they notice their #TopshopFail?

Aggy Takes A Tumble: TWICE.


So Naomi Campbell arranges a catwalk to raise money for Haiti and Aggyness Deyn felt the need to pay homage to the great supermodel – by falling down the runway; TWICE.

Naomi Campbell once fell on the runway whilst wearing Vivienne Westwood heels….

Watch the clip below of Aggy taking her two tumbles… LOL.

I know it’s probably quite mean, but I can’t stop laughing at this clip! Sorry aggz.

Brittany Murphy Dies Aged 32.


According the The Times, Brittany Murphy passed away this morning in LA, aged just 32. Brittany has reportedly died from a full cardiac arrest. I’m sure more details will follow sooner rather than later. A sad year for celebrity deaths this year.

Christmas Party Fancy Dress: CLUELESS.


SO! As many people know already, Jess, Hannah and I are going to the work Christmas Party dressed as the oh-so-lovely ladies from cult teen move, CLUELESS. Jess is going as Amber, Hannah is Cher and I’m going as Tai played originally by Brittany Murphy. We had planned this well over a week ago.

I was watching Clueless clips online this afternoon, then found a site that streamed the entire film. The streaming stopped working at 63 minutes, so while the film was loading, I logged into Twitter. I saw Brittany Murphy was trending – MASSIVE COINCIDENCE anyway no? Then found she was trending as ‘Brittany Murphy RIP’. Absolutely mental. Brittany died this morning in LA after a full cardiac arrest. She was aged 32.

We will indeed still be going to the party as the Clueless girls and I will endeavour to wear black knee high socks in tribute to the young actress, Brittany Murphy.

Thoughts?

What a busy busy week! Just got in from a wonderful bicycle ride…


camdenbikeride

We’ve just got in from a lovely bicycle ride along the canal to Camden and back. We had an amazing picnic courtesy of Marks and Spencers in Regents Park and a Iced Latte a la Starbucks. Thanks! Had a crazily busy week this past week, lots to report on which I will indeed do so in due course!

So as aforementioned, work has been super busy! And I think this week will be even busier! Especially as its Bank Holiday Monday today, so we only have a 4 day week! Excellent! Loving work though, lots to do and it’s all very varied which keeps me very quiet… hah.

It’s been Notting Hill Carnival this weekend, we stayed away from it this year after getting lost in the crowds and high rise flats last year! Oh and the small matter of a dodgy stomach for 3 days straight after very dodgy Jerk Chicken! Sad times!

So expect several blog posts this evening as I’m having a proper catch up! Also, keep an eye out for my eBay posts, got 2 1/2 bin bags of brand new/nearly new clothes, shoes and accessories!

Ms. Judy Pink.

Uh-Oh someones cheating…


Picture 843

I was reading last nights London Lite en route to a Blog evening at the Prince of Wales Pub, Kentish Town, when I noticed that this page…

The 2 girls, who I have highlighted with my red arrows, are wearing exactly the same playsuit…

The main image girl, who actually, in my opionion wears it better, states she purchased the jumpsuit at Warehouse for £25.

The second girl, states she purchased the jumpsuit from Primark at £12.

It is a canny cheap looking jumpsuit, and a jumpsuit, in any material in Warehouse is not going to be cheaper than say £45?

From this we learn, honesty is the best policy. Don’t lie, or hide, where you purchased your clothes. You’ll always get found out. Also, shame on you London Lite, you should do your research/go to specsavers!

Our first lady of fashion; please enter Gabrielle Chanel.



I am some what fascinated and, slightly obsessed by the life and loves of Gabrielle Chanel; known to most as COCO CHANEL.

Gabrielle Chanel the founder of French Fashion House, CHANEL, had the ability to capture what a woman really wanted to wear – to feel liberated and in luxury… at an expense of course.

Chanel was also very articulate; as can be seen from her many many enchanting and insightful quotations…

“Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.”

A fashion that does not reach the streets is not a fashion.”

“A woman has the age she deserves.”

“Don’t spend time beating on a wall, hoping to transform it into a door.”

“Dress shabbily and they remember the dress; dress impeccably and they remember the woman.”

“Fashion fades, only style remains the same.”

“Fashion has become a joke. The designers have forgotten that there are women inside the dresses. Most women dress for men and want to be admired. But they must also be able to move, to get into a car without bursting their seams! Clothes must have a natural shape.”

“Fashion is architecture: it is a matter of proportions.”

“Fashion is made to become unfashionable.”

“How many cares one loses when one decides not to be something but to be someone.”

“In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different.”

“I don’t understand how a woman can leave the house without fixing herself up a little – if only out of politeness. And then, you never know, maybe that’s the day she has a date with destiny. And it’s best to be as pretty as possible for destiny.”

“I invented my life by taking for granted that everything I did not like would have an opposite, which I would like.”

“Luxury must be comfortable, otherwise it is not luxury.”

“Innovation! One cannot be forever innovating. I want to create classics.”

“Since everything is in our heads, we had better not lose them.”

The best color in the whole world, is the one that looks good, on you!”

“Where should one use perfume?” a young woman asked. “Wherever one wants to be kissed,” I said.”

All these quotations are so legendary and thoughful. Coco Chanel is a wonderful individual who lived a very fulfilled and supreme life… leaving other peoples lives supreme and very fulfilled… including my very own life. Thank You Madame Gabrielle.
