Girl Crush… Rosie Huntington-Whiteley for Autograph

Rosie for Autograph 2014 – Silk Padded Plunge Bra £25 Silk Brazilian Knickers £12.50 (Antique Rose)

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has come leaps and bounds since walking for Victoria’s Secret. Needless to say the experience and understanding of the lingerie industry has lead her collaboration with Marks & Spencer.

Since the launch of the Rosie for Autograph line in 2012, stores have sold out nationwide of the beautiful, french inspired lingerie regularly. I’ve always been a fan of Huntington-Whiteley before the line was announced so hearing about it really excited me. I was eager to see if she would go down the Victoria Secret-esque, fun and quirky style or whether to keep it simple and elegant.. I’m very happy she chose the latter.

The first collection highlighted the main styles that would continue to feature throughout the following seasons; Padded balcony bras, all-in-one teddies, brazilian and high-waisted briefs and nighties.

Rosie for Autograph 2013 Range

Rosie has chosen her colour palettes and materials smartly, she has definitely learnt a lot from her previous lingerie experience. She uses soft colour palettes to compliment the skin tone, and delicate lace and silks to keep the lingerie luxurious and also comfortable. The great thing about this range is that it is an affordable indulgence..which is perfect! Most women lust after this style of lingerie but it always comes with a 3 figure price tag. It’s about time a high street retailer took the initiative to bring what the customer wants, to them. I think it was a perfect move for Marks and Spencer, as it has always been known to offer good quality underwear.

Rosie for Autograph 2014 – Silk Chiffon Bralet £19.50, Silk Chiffon Shorts £12.50

I feel this collaboration, and the introduction of Belinda Earl as style director, has allowed Marks and Spencer to become one of the leading trendsetting shops on the high street. It has definitely become somewhere I know I can go into and pick up a statement piece/perfect shoe/amazing underwear. So Ladies.. if your lost for something to treat your man to tomorrow, or maybe you fancy treating yourself (We all love to feel sexy, even if nobody sees!), you have to try this underwear. I guarantee you will be back!

(Psst!  M&S love a good 20% lingerie sale every now and again too!)

H&M’s new baby… & Other Stories..

Recently, I’ve had to bury my head in a mountain of books and papers, and knuckle down to complete an exam. We all know that this simply not true…endless days were spent procrastinating online and in magazines. One good thing that came out of it was my ever growing love for the new brand launched under the H&M group – & Other Stories.

Primarily based in Europe…(well they have a store in London..) they have created a brand that’s slightly more expensive than H&M, but provides exquisite shapes and colours that will suit just about everyone.

They have a great range of products from shirts, shoes and bags to underwear, makeup and swimwear. I love that they have stuck to their european style with a lot of delicate materials in subdued tones but have also created a lot of timeless bold prints and key pieces. They’re definitely a brand to dable in to keep your look fresh and perfect for the subtle on-trend accessory. They are going to be a brand that I will be investing in…Here are a few pieces i adore!

(this is the picture that stole my heart…I’ve always been a great fan of the printed pants and blazer and when I seen this in Grazia it was genuinely inspiring..)

(I’m going through a bit of an Emerald green obsession at the minute so when I saw this I immediately knew this brand was the one..)

(These are ticking those metallic box and two-tone boxes whilst encouraging my need to stray away from the ballet pump rut and stick to brogues and more structured shoes…)

(There’s no better way to brighten up your outfit than a good colour pop with your handbag, be it a clutch or a good daytime tote… I love the neon trimming!)

(I love the simplicity of their underwear too….I’m a sucker for a good matching set and when I seen the price for these beauties I was so happy! )

Have a look at their Tumblr and give them a like on Facebook…they’re great for uploading pictures of what they’re getting up to!

Is anyone else sick of seeing the same boxers on every guy they see? If its not Calvin Klein, it’s David Beckham or else some no namers from Primark or something. In steps DaDa…

Here’s a few guys who have taken it upon themselves to look at this product with the view of…well being the ones who actually wear it! They have come up with a unique blend of cotton and bamboo to produce probably the softest boxers I’ve ever felt.. They also pride themselves with their ethical stance on empowering the people who manufacture goods and also having 100% recyclable packaging.

They set up their business using the funding platform website Kickstarter.com and have a great video all about how they decided upon their product, so check it out :
