'She's My Little Rock & Roll' AW13 Collection from Jarlo

Inspired by rock muses of the 60s and 70s, Jarlo have launched their AW13 Collection featuring maxi dresses in lace and floaty chiffons alongside androgynous tailoring and sharp lines. Animal prints are mixed with vintage florals, sumptuous velvets and faux leather creating a glamorous yet wearable collection for the up-and-coming season. Jarlo's most recent collection is not only gorgeous, but it is also photographed and filmed beautifully which is why I wanted to share the video and a few images from the campaign, enjoy!

Week in Photos No.65

The past week has been eventful with the usual travelling to London for events and visiting Douglas, but one thing that isn't that usual for me is going to a festival (minus Holi Festival of Colours the other week). Douglas and I were very lucky to go to V Festival on behalf of Revlon (read post) and apart from a rainy first day, our second day was full of sun, music (of course) and lots of drink; I bumped into a few readers which is always nice and I had fun snapping photos of peoples festival fashion for Revlon's Festival Beauty Campaign even though it was pretty intimidating approaching people!

What's in My Makeup Bag?

The other week I bought a new makeup bag from Topshop (buy here) and me being the Instagram addict I am, I posted a photo of on my new purchase for the world to see. A popular request made in the comments was "can you film a What's in My Makeup Bag video" so not being somebody who likes to disappoint, I decided to film it for those of you who want to see what exactly is, in my makeup bag?!

My boohoo.com AW13 Picks with Fashtag • Part One



Last week I visited the Fashtag studio in Carnaby Street, London where the crew took me along to the boohoo.com showroom to have a look at their new collections for AW13. The collections featured 70s punk, florals, sports luxe and countryside chic, just to name a few elements from the new season designs. I selected a handful of my favourite pieces to style back at the Fashtag studio which was filmed as a two part series, so here is part one!

I'm a Revlon Festival Beauty Hunter at V Festival

Saying I am excited about this weekend would be an understatement. Not only am I going to my first ever festival, but I am going on behalf of Revlon as a Festival Beauty Hunter which means I'll be on the look out for the best fashion and beauty festival looks and snapping them for mine and Revlon's Instagram (@rhiannonashlee and @revlon_uk). I'll be going to V Festival at Hylands Park with my boyfriend, Douglas, so keep you're eyes peeled for us two (the crazy haired couple) and come say hi if you see us. I would love to meet you and maybe even take a photo of your festival (most likely fabulous) look!

Girlfriend vs Boyfriend

Douglas and I thought it was about time we filmed another video together and decided on a light-hearted theme after our last video being on the more serious side. We filmed a set of mini challenges against one another, including the cotton ball challenge and thumb wars. We filmed seven challenges in total, but who won the challenge overall?

Week in Photo No.64

I have had a great week this week, full of laughs, events and colour (quite literally). On wednesday, I visited the Candy Kittens pop up store in Chelsea, London where I had a chat with the owner himself, Jamie Laing, who is just as fun-loving as he seems in Made In Chelsea. I finished off a great week with the best weekend - Friday night was spent cuddled up on the sofa with Douglas watching The Perks of Being a Wallflower; Saturday we both headed up to London for Holi festival of Colours which was my first festival and was such a blast and Sunday we drove down to visit our friends Marzia and Felix (otherwise known as CutiePieMarzia and PewDiePie on YouTube) where we all went for Thai food, watched Grown Ups 2 at the cinema and played games on Brighton Pier until closing. The perfect double date!

Candy Kittens Bloggers Breakfast

A couple of days ago I visited the Candy Kittens summer pop up store along Kings Road in Chelsea, London where a handful of bloggers, including myself, were invited to check out the new store and merchandise whilst having a delicious breakfast and meeting the owner himself, Jamie Laing. Even though the store is only there until Sunday, it looked amazing and was decorated as fresh and fun as the brand itself. I am a huge fan of Candy Kittens so it was great to finally visit one of their pop up stores and have chat with Jamie about the brand. I hope you enjoy having a look at some photographs I snapped up on the day, alongside a quick video I thought you might all like.

Lush Haul + First Impressions

I did a spot of shopping whilst I was in Cambridgeshire last week, alright, I tell a lie, I did a lot of shopping and one of the shops that contributed to the damage was Lush. Until last week, I had never purchased anything from Lush because 1. I don't have a store in my town and 2. it always skipped my mind when I was close to one. I am really excited about my purchases and as I have never done as beauty haul on my YouTube, I thought I'd film a video to show you which items I bought and let you in on my initials thoughts on each product.

Non-Fashion/Beauty Wish List • August 2013

1. The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky (buy here)
I never thought I'd see the day I became one of those people who read on the tube between a couple of stops, because I have never been a great fan of reading, you see, yet I am now one of those people. After reading The Fault In Out Stars by John Green (buy here) I have really started to love reading, so as a lot of you have recommended I read The Perk of Being a Wallflower, I have added it to this months wish list.

Week in Photos No.63

This week has been nice and relaxed. I spent a week up in Cambridgeshire with, can you guess? Douglas! During the week we had a couple of nights out with his work crew; went for a lovely meal just the two of us; I did some retail therapy at the Grand Arcade in Cambridge whilst Doug worked and we drove to a beach in Norfolk where we played on the penny machines, went bowling (he beat me with almost double the points) and played crazy golf (which is my ultimate favourite - we drew which slightly angered my competitive crazy golfer alter ego), the usual british seaside activities. The rest of the week I have spent giving myself some me time: reading whilst in my favourite comfy clothes; people watching in coffee shops (Starbucks mostly) left with nothing but my thoughts; organising my work and tidying my bedroom which was certainly overdue.. I blame the fact I have too many clothes and not enough storage!

Check Smock Dress • Styling Saturday

1. Topshop: Enzyme Check Smock Dress, £36 (buy here)       2. iclothing: Elsie Cross Body Satchel, €45 (buy here)
3. Ciate: Nail Polish in Mango Martini at ASOS, £9 (buy here)      4. New Look: Jelly Sandals at ASOS, £9.99 (buy here)
I recently purchased this check dress from Topshop and have been playing around with ways to wear it, so I thought I'd feature it in this weeks Styling Saturday. I could have gone for my usual ankle boots and socks combo with a red nail and bowler hat (which would still look great with this dress) but I wanted to do something a little different this week - minus the smock dress as I'm always buying those.. what's a girl to do, ay?!

Wish List • August 2013

1. Topshop: Petite Daisy Print Dress, £46 (buy here)
I have had my eye on this gorgeous little number for months and I am determined to finally get my hands on it. Not only is it in a lovely vibrant red combined with a delicate daisy print (perfect for the summer) but it has a very classic cut which hugs your figure in all the right places, resulting in a flirty, feminine silhouette.
