Pyjama party

By Tamara Corin, March 10, 2016

It's not often I will allocate space to write about a trend that is so fashion (darling!) that you need to be in the business to pull it off, but outdoor boudoir elegance is huge this season and can't go unnoticed. I have found a short cut that works and ensures you can carry off the look whatever your lifestyle. Your main aim is to try to avoid looking like you did when you rolled out of bed.

Candy coated

By Tamara Corin, March 3, 2016

Although there is still a chill in the air, the days are getting noticeably longer. This means one thing: spring is in the air. Well, almost. This is the time to consider rethinking the all-black winter uniform you've lived in for the past six months and to inject some subtle colour into your look. Pantone hits of sherbet shades are high on the menu for next season.

The strobe effect

By Tamara Corin, February 18, 2016

Like most trends these days, it begins with the Kardashian girls. Highlighting or strobing, as the beauty pack like to call it, became a craze in 2015 set off by Kim Kardashian's Instagram post of her make-up being applied with a map of colours to emphasise specific areas of her face.

Red alert

By Tamara Corin, February 11, 2016

When questioning a group of friends about what they associate with the colour red, love was surprisingly low on the list. However, power, danger, passion and stop were all words that were brought up several times over.

Snow chic: it's a wrap

By Tamara Corin, February 4, 2016

One wouldn't normally choose extra-padded jackets and oversized goggles as a look for the sophisticated, let alone the minus temperatures that play havoc on your skin and hair. Mountain style takes some planning. So before you jet off to white snow and beautiful surroundings, ensure you're kitted out like a pro, but a fashionable one.

Mono mania

By Tamara Corin, January 29, 2016

I love colour. Nothing beats a bright red lip or a flash of metallic, but it seems I’m alone in my thinking. Monochrome fashion has remained on the fashion power list since Twiggy’s 1960s days and it hasn’t declined. Perhaps this is due to its unassuming and practical nature or maybe it’s just the lazy girl’s way of dressing.

Cotton on to denim

By Tamara Corin, January 14, 2016

Denim is a godsend of a fabric. We all have at least one piece of denim clothing hanging in our wardrobe - no matter what your age, style or shape. Although denim is the most versatile of fabrics, the denim skirt can cause many style dilemmas. Get the wrong length and you'll be looking more frumpy than yummy mummy. I see this mistake time and time again.

Protect and perfect

By Tamara Corin, January 7, 2016

Just because your skin is hidden underneath layers of woollies, opaque tights and cosy coats need not mean you neglect your skin for an entire season. In fact, the colder the weather, the more your skin craves a deeper skincare routine. It's about three things: hydration, nourishment and pampering. Get the latter right and you'll be coming back for more.

A clean sweep

By Tamara Corin, December 31, 2015

January 1 is a funny old day. Either you’ve woken up with a hangover or simply vowed that this year will be the year to shed that frustrating half a stone or get fit, shape up, whatever you want to call it. With New Year wishes in the air, you can’t help but get mixed up in the whole New Year, new you, mantra.
