Are you party ready for New Year's night?

Before you say anything else, the answer is NO. No, it is not too early to think about what you are going to wear on the New Year’s Party, especially if you want to be in the sexiest and the most effective version of yourself this year. These things take work! You need something glamorous, sexy, and attractive and you need shoes and makeup to match it. It goes without saying you should lay off the cookies. Here is a list of things you need for this New Year’s Party.

Make it a whole day thing
You can never hope to be glamorous and amazingly fresh and sexy if you are dead tired from the day of running around and doing chores. Plan the whole day around yourself to be perfect. This means that you should plan a breakfast with your girls, book a beauty treatment or manicure for the afternoon and do whatever makes you happy and relaxed. That will definitely show.

Choose the style
There are several keywords that you should be thinking while planning your attire for this New Year’s Party: black, red, gold, lace, glitter, elegant, sexy, and glamorous. Now think about them and think about the dress that incorporates some or all of them. If you have a little, glittery dress with sexy pumps on your mind, you are definitely getting the grip of the situation. Try and incorporate these things with the style that suits you best. I always follow that rule: if I’m showing off legs, I’m covering the top. It really is too much to reveal both upper and lower body.

ASOS - Goldie outsider sequin dress
Zara - Basic kimono jacket
Topshop - Rare metal tow sandals
Faith - Black leather patterned envelope clutch bag

Makeup is important
If you are not going to go over the top with makeup on New Year’s Eve, then when are you going to do it? It is the perfect night to get away with it. All those long eyelashes that you’ve been wanting to try on, and that sparkling makeup that really has no good purpose – well, go with it! Have fun with it and make it festive.

Accessorize out of the box
Sparkle, glitter, snowflakes, silver stars and fairy dust are allowed on this fun and crazy night. If you are not so crazy about glittering all over the place, you can just use one detail and still make the whole of your creation festive. A sliver purse and glittery pumps on all black outfit will be just what you need to make ordinary dress a perfect New Year’s Dress. Surprise people with your creativity and accessorize like anything is allowed, because for this evening – it is! This year, don’t forget to show off some curves, but still keep it classy. Think about the roaring twenties and the elegant, still sexy times. They are just the perfect inspiration for the elegant and glamorous style that you are looking for this year.

Haircare: How to look after your hair?

You may have read this title and thought 'of course i know how to look after my hair'. But as a woman i know there are a lot of us out there that dont know how or just generally don't look after there hair. So, this is your chance now to take a little advice on what you should and shouldn't do because i know i regretted not listening when i was told.

So, we all like to experiment with our hair, whether it be dying it a crazy colour or curling it into an afro... we've all been there! But these things believe it or not, do actually cause your hair more damage than you may realise. Firstly...

I think we all remember the time that the first pair of GHD's went on sale, every girl was going a little crazy! Waves were not cool for us girls. Every time we straighten our hair, the perfectly healthy hair strands we have get burnt and damaged, i kid you not. So, put down your straighteners for a while (or if you cant, don't use them so often) and refresh your hair of its natural oils, i promise you will notice a difference. If you are a hair straightener addict and cant, use heat protection treatments. Any expert will tell you (or lecture you) that in order to prevent your hair getting damanged and breaking, you NEED to apply some kind of heat protecting hair care treatment before putting a high heat on your hair. I think most people will agree, Tigi Bed Head is always a favourite. Not to pricey and works great. This is a brilliant heat protector and de-frizzer, that i would say works best on damp hair before drying.

Hair Cut 
This will be short and sweet as its the most obvious thing. If you have long hair, it is important to get your hair cut regularly in order to keep it looking healthy. The older your hair gets, the more fragile it is. They generally say on average every 6-8 weeks. Don't ever feel like because your hair feels smooth it doesn't need cutting, you may be wrong and end up damaging your hair.

How important is your hair to you? 

There are a lot of things i regret in life and not looking after my hair properly is one of them. Give yourself a couple of hours a week to pamper your hair, rehydrate it. It is just as important to do this as it is to moisturise your skin. Get down to Boots and find the best hair mask you can, you wont regret it when its left your hair feeling silky smooth and hydrated. Here's a hair mask i would recommend using... my own!

Coconut and honey hair mask, here's what you need:

1 tbsp Organic Coconut Oil
1 tbsp.Organic Raw Honey

Mix all the ingredients together and heat it up a little. Apply it all over to wet or dry hair (i suggest wet). Wrap your hair in a towel and leave it on for around 30 min's so it soaks in. Sit down, paint your nails and pamper yourself as much as you can whist waiting. Wash your hair out using your normal shampoo and conditioner it as normal also, you will notice the difference!

Peaches Geldof: A young life in pictures

The sad news of Peaches Geldof passing away, has certainly shocked everyone.  The daughter of Sir Bob Geldof and Paula Yates passed away at the very young age of 25. Leaving behind her two babies and beloved husband Thomas Cohen. It is such a tragedy to lose someone who was so young and so talented. She was only young, but she still managed to have a lot of success in her career and life. So this is her life...

She was born and raised in London, growing up in Chelsea. She is the second daughter of Bob Geldof and Paula Yates, having two sisters Fifi Trixibelle Geldof and Pixie Geldof. She also had a half sister named TigerLily Hutchence Geldof.

In 2004 she started her journalism career by writing a magazine column for Elle Girl, up until late 2005 when the magazine folded. She then went on to write a socio-political column for The Daily Telegraph, also writing articles for The Guardian on the side. In 2005 she then wrote and presented her own television show called Peaches Geldof: Teenage Mind and then Peaches Geldof: Teen America. Firthermore, in 2006 Peaches was ranked number 7 in the Tatlers list of top ten fashion icons, this making her the youngest person on the list. One year later she made her catwalk debut for PPQ at LFW. She then went onto become the face of Australian fashion line Dotti.

In 2009, Peaches was signed to a six figure modelling contract to which she became the face of the Miss Ultimo collection. The head of Ultimo underwear commented at the time saying "Peaches was the perfect choice for this campaign. Shes young, edgy with lashings of style".

Personal Life:
In 2008, she went on to marry Max Drummey, an American musician in the band Chester French. But the marriage only lasted a few months before the decided to end their relationship. In 2012 she then married Thomas Cohen, the lead singer of London band S.C.U.M. They married at the same church her parents had previously married and also where her mothers funeral was held. They have two sons together and were still happily together at the time of her passing,

Peaches mother Paula Yates died in September 2000, when Peaches was only 11 years of age.  The sudden death really hit Peaches hard and found it very hard to come to terms with it. In an interview with Elle magazine, she commented on how hard her life has been since her mothers passing, stating
"I remember the day my mother died, and its still hard to talk about it. I just blocked it out. I went to school the next day because my fathers mentality was 'keep calm and carry on;. So we all went to school and tried to act as if nothing had happened. But it had happened. I didn't grieve. I didn't cry at her funeral. I couldnt express anything because i was just numb to it all. I didn't start grieving for my mother properly until i was maybe 16."
She also commented on how close her and her mother were, missing her everyday knowing she cant see her again is the hardest thing. The final twitter post Peaches wrote was the day before her passing and it was a photograph of her as a baby in her mothers arms.

To lose your life at 25 years old, is naturally terrible. After losing her own mother at such a young age, Peaches often spoke about her childhood and teenage struggles. But the moment she had a family of her own, she's transformed. She transformed into a young, devoted wife and mother. Who cared for nothing more than her family. I didn't know Peaches, and i don't know as much about her work as a lot of people may. But what i do know is grieving is a hard thing for anyone. No one should lose someone so close to them that young and people of her age aren't made for heaven yet. She was another young girl taken to soon. Her family are in the thoughts of so many at the moment and i genuinely hope one day they can find peace. She made an impact on a lot of lives and that is what they have to hold onto.
