Tis the season to be Merry. I have put a couple of festive looks together to celebrate my favourite time of the year. Who doesn't love dressing up for a cosy Christmas party and a glamorous New Year's EVE? All three looks feature Olivier Rousteings BALMATION collection, from the Balmain x H&M capsule collection... which by the way took the world by storm! I read that scuffles broke out on Regent Street in London as impatient shoppers jostled in for the launch, in Singapore hundreds queued up for more than 60 hours!!!! The social media effect certainly played a big part to this frenzy, as did the beautiful faces of GIGI, Jourdan and Kendall...Olivier Rousteings muses's.
This collection showcased glitter, velvet, beads and huge armour-like jewellery. Perfect for the festive season ahead of us.
My look, featuring the green sequin Balmain x H&M dress which I most probably would wear on a New Year's Eve party, as it is the only time of year where I can really get away with everything shiny...glitter, gold and gleaming. I especially love the skin tight silhouette of this dress as its ultra-feminine. The v-neckline's personally too deep for me, so I added a bandeau, for a more age appropriate look.
The PADDY WARWICK team has generously offered us teens in the French Riviera a chance to participate in a relay
Marathon run Nice to Cannes...to fundraise for 'Save the Children' charity.
'Save the Children' is the worlds leading charity organisation helping children:

In the midst of the present refugee crisis 'Save the Children' is helping children who originate from countries where the oppression, violence, poverty & conflict are unbearable and are fueling mass migration.
Many of these childrens lifes are bombarded by unimaginable losses & horror.
'Save the Children' charity rely on financial aid in order to be able to save these children's lives. Sadly 1 in 4 children arrive alone. Help is required urgently, the kids may not have a tomorrow.

It would mean a lot to me as well as the children in need https://www.youcaring.com/save-the-children-international-443792 CLICK HERE to DONATE xxx Tara
Hey there beautiful people of the cyber world!! Another runway inspired lookbook fresh of the LFW runway. Bella Hadid looked absolutely divine when she strutted her stuff on the Topshop runway. All things Mod and Retro was what Topshop was creating... I think it's to die for. I screenshot Bella Hadid's look and then thought why not recreate it with the pieces I already have in my good 'ol closet. So here it is, literally looks like I was having a ball during this shoot but it was so chilly and windy that I was surprised that my sis even got one cool shot haha. My baby blue fur jacket & the pony printed shirt is from Zara.I purchased earrings from a beautiful little jewellery store in Delhi, India. They are a deep red colour and embellished with intricate gold flowers. My button up denim skirt & my new sock boots are from Topshop. It's the year of the boot according to Topshop... especially the retro booties. A fluffy/faux-fur jacket or vest,a button up skirt, ankle boots and a ruby lip are perfect elements to recreate the a la mode retro look. xx
So excited about this blog post! Why? Because these are one of my all time favourite looks from the runways. This look is inspired by the 2013 Fall Dolce&Gabbana collection. Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana found inspiration from old churches and the Byzantine-era. Mosaics from Sicily's Monreale Cathedral provided the starting point for the collection, which was as gilded with religious iconography.
The models who participated in this Dolce & Gabbana show were topped with gilded crowns. If the jewel-encrusted apparel did not drive home the monarchical theme of the Fall 2013 line, these adornments certainly did. Paired with these outfits were an assortment of haute couture accessories, seen in the deep red flats and drooping and chunky gold earrings. Just watching the catwalk videos, low buns, black crochet, intricate lace and bejewelled crowns and jewellery and The Rose was everything to the collection.
So I asked myself...How could I recreate this look on a teen budget? Spread across fashion magazines, celebrities such as Lady Gaga, Katy Perry and many more were sporting some jaw-dropping pieces from this particular collection. So why not try it out myself?
The crochet blackdress I have on is from a little boutique in Juan-Les-Pins. Got it at a fraction of its usual price because of the end-of-Summer closing down sales. I fell in love with it instantly and inspired me to recreate the D&G look.
The thin straps, thick black crochet and heart shaped neckline is a dupe of what you could get off the D&G runway. My cross necklace and the ruby red and gold plated chunky cross earrings were the perfect match for this outfit.I found both these pieces, during my summer vacation, in a tiny shop off the bustling streets of Bangkok and can also be found on ASOS and Topshop. My black peep-toes are from Chanel but can easily be purchased for less on the high street. For me the hair and makeup was the most fun to recreate the look D&G Runway look. So here I sported a slick, middle parted low bun, matt lipstick from LimeCrime, shade: wicked... my fave Autumn color yet. Stefano's favourite childhood memory of his own mother is The Rose scent of her red lipstick. Thats why Dolce&Gabbana's lipsticks are uniquely fragrant.
Added a little bit of highlight and contour et VOILA! The rustic, sun kissed italian vibe shone through this outfit. And yes, i had to add a little grain and B&W to my pics to make it look antique. This collection was an immaculate conception!
Hope you enjoy this Lookbook. One more post to follow. Have an awesome day xxx T
Hi!Just wanted to dedicate a little blog post to my fave set of claws... all covered in glitter. I have always wanted to get a set of acrylic nails and finally got them done in Thailand! They made me feel so glamorous and sassy. These nails were my jewellery...it blinged my look!
Hey there! POUF! POUF! POUF!
My bag is definitely a lot happier with her new friend Mr.Pouf...aka Bagbug to some. I first spotted the little fashion creature on Kylie J.'s forest green Fendi girl bag. It made her outfit look less formal and more fun. I couldn't help but purchase a lil Pouf for myself. I chose a dusty pink shaded creature, my sis picked a crisp white one and we just love them. There are a variety of funky Puffs sold on the high streets, for way cheaper. Checkout ...River Island, Etsy... Adopt a Bagbug, its Kylie fashionable. xx
Hello beautiful people of the internet. After my crazy summer travels, its great getting back into my routine...I'm ready to do what I love most... aka writing about things I enjoy in life. This ones especially for my followers in the Southern Hemisphere...Australia, South Africa and Asia, who will be welcoming their 2015 Summer. My craze this Summer has been all about the one piece 'baywatch swimsuit' made famous by Pamela Anderson from 'Baywatch'. I'm all about comebacks!! The high cut sides lengthen and flatter your legs and gives you a sleek athletic appearance, the low back "scoops" emphasises your summers sun-kissed skin. Oh and lets not forget it also looks super-cool lying on a lilo and sipping on a fresh coconut by the pool! VINTAGE! When I first watched the re-runs of Baywatch starring the gorgeous Pamela Anderson, I think I had my first girl-crush, what a bae?! Ever since, I've been searching for a plain black one: and trust me I spent endless hours on Asos, Nasty Gal, Misguided, Top Shop...I mean lets not name all the online brands I went on....embarrassing. There are SO MANY CHOICES out there!!?! I was searching for the perfect one-piece, not too high cut or too low scooped in the front and back, that I could also wear as a body suit styled with a denim skirt or mom jeans. Love the silhouette it gives an outfit. I was trying out some random outfits at Topshop in the fabulous Dubai Mall (heaven on earth for a fashion lover)and my mum came into my dressing room and was like "Hey, don't you think that this would look cute on you?". She picked out an all black, ribbed, low back bay watch swimuit that was literally perfect to wear as a bodysuit! How she knew I was looking for something exactly like that? I don't know. But hey: not all heroes wear capes haha. Go find yourself a bay watch swimsuit. Not only are they very retro but are so easy to throw on and for us here in Europe, going into Autumn, you can use them as a bodysuit. I will! Oh and a big Happy Birthday to Queen B xxx T
This summer I decided to document my holidays using my 8mm camera. A digital diary of my love for food, concrete jungles, city lights,art and family.

Lots of love xxx
