The Stigma of Leopard

23 Aug 2016 - I love a bit of leopard print. Not too much, or you risk looking ridiculous, but (and I don’t think it’s just me) I have to admit that the stigma it carries does enter my head, that it’s tacky, that you shouldn’t wear it after the age of thirty or even, as I just recently amusingly heard, that you must not wear it before 6pm.

Summer Beach Trends: Gold

08 Jul 2016 - Our favourite beach trend for this summer is gold temporary tattoos. They have been huge for the last year, of course - we've seen them on Melanie, of course (she has her own collection with Glim Glam), but also Beyonce, Little Mix, Selena Gomez and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley have been popping up all over Instagram, gilded and adorned, and now the holidays are starting, we'll be seeing a lot more in the coming months.

Melanie’s Favourite Bikinis

01 Jul 2016 - I have an obsession with bikinis. I buy them all year round, in season and out of season. Some girls love handbags, some girls are into shoes, my thing is definitely bikinis. I do ask a lot of my bikinis, they need to be functional, fashionable, durable and well cut. Bikini sizes are always a little bit all over the place, you never really know how they’ll fit. I find that you need to try on lots and when you get used to a certain brand, you know what size you require. Once I find a brand I like, I just keep going back for more.

Beach Cover-Up

28 Jun 2016 - I do have rules about my beach cover-ups. I never wear maxi dresses to the beach or poolside. I know they look beautiful, but for me they're not very practical. I always get too hot in them and they stick to my legs so I always go for shorter and looser beach cover-ups. I always match my bikini to the cover-ups, so I choose bikinis first and then match the dresses to bikinis.
