The presenter and fashion icon found time in her busy schedule to design the pieces that are total on-trend must-haves for the new season.
Louise has injected her love of bright colour and 70s boho chic into the capsule range which has been inspired by fashion icons from different eras including Edie Sedewick, Bianca Jagger, Kate Bosworth and Miranda Kerr. Graphic lines, multiple colours and contrasting textures have been used to create platform sandals that are decidedly modern with the bags and jewellery also being able to hold their own in the fashion crowd.
There are two types of sandals in this collection, multi or wide strap, which will re-establish your love for super sleek high heels. The colour blocking trend has been infused into the designs for epic style stealing bliss! Leg lengthening and incredibly gorgeous these are the perfect summer shoes for weddings, garden parties and evening events. I can already see myself tottering about in them!

Although it’s officially British summer time, this dismal weather is getting rather monotonous and isn’t doing much for our moods. We’re meant to be experiencing beautiful sunshine everyday but instead have to settle for cloudy skies and blistering cold winds. Really not fun! So now is the perfect time to book that beach holiday you’ve been thinking about for the last couple of months and treat yourself to some gorgeous new swimwear to help you remain looking fabulous abroad!
Lifestyle brand Skiny recently launched its first swimwear range for SS13 with the campaign images featuring the beautiful Lizzy Jagger. Set against the wild and untamed setting of South Africa, the model can be seen frolicking in the spray of the ocean and sun kissed sand in a variety of Skiny’s on-trend wearable bikinis. Lizzy seemed right at home on the coast showcasing her endless limbs and wonderfully toned physique which are a brilliant union with the amazing summer designs. Each swimwear look has been complimented with a mix of bold jewellery, hippie inspired headwear and statement sunglasses reflecting a carefree laidback attitude - an ideal frame of mind when you laze about on the beach or by the pool.
Spring/Summer 2013 is already looking set to be an amazing year as this will see the launch of sunglasses brand Finest SEVEN’s collaboration with the amazing British designer duo Felder Felder.
Inspiration for the capsule line of beautiful sunglasses was drawn from the broken wings of a butterfly with acetate frames that are subtly winged in shape which gives the designs an almost vintage flare. This is in keeping with London based fashion label Felder Felder’s mainline SS13 collection which sees romantic silhouettes fused with soft dreamlike hues that will evoke your feminine side. The shapes, cut and designs compliment the sunglasses perfectly thanks to floaty, sheer fabrics and prints such as leopard. Empowering creations don’t swamp your shape but instead flatter and enhance it making you feel beautiful inside and out. Twin sisters Daniela and Annette Felder are the designers behind the gorgeous British brand and you can see their style influence incorporated into the sunglasses collection.
A unique colour palette for the accessories is made up of muted green, pastel pink, navy and broken butterfly wing print which is a nod to the scorched and ruined pictures taken by an old Polaroid SX70. This gives the sunglasses a classic style with a contemporary edge making for a lovely contrast. Sleek, sophisticated and oh-so-chic, these beauties will be all you need to complete your SS13 outfits thanks to the dramatic shape of the frames and versatile shades. Another fantastic collection which has the fashion world extremely excited.

The popularity of tattoos has grown significantly in the last decade, with celebs sporting what can now be considered iconic images of self expression. Tattoos are now no longer forms of rebellion or just for the hard nuts / armed services. Tattoos have become an art form to be admired.
David Beckham’s ‘Guardian Angel’ or Megan Fox’s portrait of Marilyn Monroe are two such tats that come to mind. However, a tattoo needs some TLC for it to look its best and now there is a new skincare range for tattoos, Forever Ink.
This is the UK’s first premium skincare range specifically created for the care of tattooed skin and has been developed by skincare specialists Forest Labs in conjunction with Louis Molloy.
Louis Molloy is regarded as the king of tattooists, responsible for some of the best celebrity tattoos, including Becks. Beckham has been known to cross the atlantic, just so Louis can work his magic.
I guess Mr Molloy knows his stuff when it comes to looking after Tattoos.
Forever Ink comes in two formats, Forever Ink balm is for use directly after a tattoo has been inked onto the body. It provides a unique combination of antibacterial manuka honey and vitamins B & E to moisturise, nourish and protect, helping to restore a healthy skin barrier.
For longer term maintenance, Forever Ink Shield has been designed specifically for the everyday care and protection of tattooed skin. The unique Ink Lock Technology actively seals in tattoo colour to preserve and enhance lifetime vibrancy, as well as nourishing and protecting with an SPF 45 factor.
Awesome! Finally a decent skin care range for tattoos! You can find out more HERE.
Forever Ink Balm ®: RRP: £6.99 (30g)
Forever Ink Shield®: RRP: £12.99 (50g)
Available online through boots.com and in-store at Independent Pharmacies and selected tattoo studios.
