Their most recent collaboration is one that I love – Amanda de Cadenet x Warby Parker, which is a small range of 2 frames.  The designs are named for her twin children.

These oversized frames come in jet black – Amanda de Cadenet x Warby Parker Ella Glasses





This frame was named after Amanda’s daughter – Ella, It is an optical frame in Jet Black with bold, gold accents on the frame’s temple. Personally, I am a huge fan of this frame, and not just because it’s black! This frame is a style that I would generally lean toward and is something I would wear myself.  I find that it is a classic, sleek and a borderline sexy frame that really can given an outfit edge and class. This frame really does have the ability to complete any look – be it edgy, clean and classic or to just add a little bit of fun.


Time to look pretty in pink – Amanda de Cadenet x Warby Parker Silvan Glasses



Silvan is a frame that comes in both an optical and sunnies frame. It is in a beautiful shade of peony and is perfect for those seeking a more creative/ artistic / care free look whilst seeming effortlessly chic.  Now generally I am not one for any colour other black ( it’s becoming a bit of a problem, come to think of it! ) however, with that being said, I do love the subtlety of this shade – it isn’t too bold or “in your face” but still manages to grab your attention. I think that if you’re someone who is scared to try colour/  or is contemplating trying it? I would opt for this. It’s still classic/ chic and in the same shape/ style Ella’s frame.

Paw Patrol - birthday invitation

It was my nephews 3rd birthday party on the 11th February.  2 weeks before his birthday I phoned my sister in law to find out if I must do his invite.  I had found it strange that I hadn't been asked to do it yet (Because I always do the invites in my family.) 

She was totally undecided about the theme (dinosaurs, Paw-Patrol or Cars.)  I had no idea who, what or where Paw-Patrol was, so I did some Pinterest searching and found the most incredible Paw-Patrol party ideas, I saved millions of ideas and sent them to her to get her excited about the theme. It was then decided that Paw-Patrol it is. Here is an example of a Paw-Patrol invitation.

Shoe style: Suede Sneakers


Other than in the rain or snow, there really is never a bad time or season to wear suede sneakers and the funny thing about sneaker trends is that they often aren't new styles — rather, they're old standbys being revived. Every year there’s a standout sneaker style that defines street style. Last year it was all about simple white sneakers, but for 2017, it's all about updating the sleek leather material for a luxe suede sneaker. The textured detail adds an elevated look to a casual shoe style. Puma's suede platform sneaker is fresh shoe style with a platform sole and with the pop colour in suede is a cool statement for a more classic weekend outfit. 

One of the most important things you should take away from this article is how to protect your suede.  Suede is one of those materials because it's naturally porous (it's not treated like leather) and doesn't have any natural water-repelling qualities. 
First you need to wait until the suede is dry before you tackle it with a brush or cloth – when suede is wet the bristles are fragile and rubbing at them will cause tear in the fabric, and liquids can stain the fabric, cause it to change shape and even cause the dye to run. Taking care of suede shoes is fairly straight forward; you don’t polish suede, you use the suede brush gently, sweeping in short, gentle strokes to freshen up the nap of the fabric, if you can try follow the grain of the fabric.  Use shoe trees to maintain shape and resole when needed.

THE ONE SHOULDER FASHION TREND

YOUR NEXT FAVOURITE WARDROBE PIECE

With 2016 being the year of the off-the-shoulder, 2017 is kicking off with a little more clavicle coverage in the form of the one-shoulder design. Showing off just the right amount of skin, the look took spring and summer by storm. One Shoulder is something that I always liked, it creates such a pretty silhouette, whether it's a dress or a top. 

Here are some tips on how to make this trend work for you:

Whether it's trendy magenta or classic black, choose a solid-coloured one-shoulder piece if you're feeling nervous about the style. You can still look for chic accents, such as beading or ruffles, to give your solid colour some punch, but don't be afraid to go basic at first.

Nothing looks classier than a one-shoulder top paired with straight leg or palazzo style pants.  Stick to matching neutral shades for a chic, understated look or go for contrasting colours to truly make an impact.

Celebrities have been rocking one-shoulder dresses with hot belts to showcase their waists and keep their styles far from frumpy.

A fabulous pair of shoes and a great bag are all you need with a one-shouldered dress. If you're going to wear jewellery, try a cocktail ring or glitzy earrings - you don't want a necklace competing with your neckline!

This is a style that is made to be seen, not layered over. Shoulders are pretty universally attractive, so show it off! If you need to keep warm, try an open blazer, cardigan, or bomber jacket so your cute threads can still be seen.

Like most items of clothing, all one-shoulder tops fit differently, so you're going to want to try on a variety of options before making your pick. Sometimes the necklines can hit at the wrong places or fit uncomfortably. There are lots of options within this look, from the traditional grecian style to one full sleeve or even a solo spaghetti strap. Pick what speaks to you and go from there!

Pick your bra wisely! One-shoulder styles demand a strapless bra. Those colourful bandeau bras you might have in your closet from last spring also work well under one-shoulder tops. Your bare shoulder provides the beauty of this look - don't clutter it with a bra strap!
