How to Make a Scrunchie

Scrunchies - the 80's and 90's favourite hair accessories are back with a vengeance. They've been seen on the heads of celebs Bella Hadid, Selina Gomez, J Lo and Margot Robbie apparently kept a few from her glorious wardrobe in "I Tonya". Balenciaga even offer a designer $225 branded leather scrunchie for more labelled fashion types.What I love about the scrunchie:1. It's good for your hair - no snagged elastic ripping your hair out.2. Co-ordinate your look - team your shoes and your scrunchie and win at accessorising an otherwise normcore outfit.3. Get the print on - feeling a floral Laura Ashley girl but always wear jeans and a jumper - you can channel your inner boho princess without feeling like you're going to float away.4. Get...

On Magazines

This week I had the joy to tuck myself away in a quiet corner of the house and indulge myself in reading a copy Vogue with a cup of Earl Grey. It seems a wonderfully indulgent thing to do these days but it's important to take time out to relax once in a while!Back in the olden days in London circa 1993 I'd spend a fortune on magazines and stock up every month. Vogue, Elle, ID, The Face and Dazed and Confused were my 90's magazines of choice. As a fashion student in London before the internet took over, Magazines were really the main source of trend forecasting for the fashion student. We'd also go to whatever Fashion Shows we could blag our way...
