Kick Start the New Year with Fashion Cotton On BODY Active

 

 

Cotton On BODY further cements its position as the go-to lifestyle brand, taking the lead with its new ‘collections by sport’ active range, hitting stores in January. Knowing the BODY girl will be celebrating this festive season, the game changing collection will help kick start the New Year with serious athleticism, plenty of style and motivation to take on 2015.

The range puts a sporty twist on activewear by catering for any arena in which the BODY girl might find herself working up a sweat; at the gym, studio, club or in day-to-day life. It features BODY’s core active pieces as well as everyday basics, with a focus on stripes, hints of bold colour and varsity prints.

‘Collections by sport’ has everything a girl needs to keep fit; from the best high-performance workout bra to essential tights that features moisture wicking technology. It fuses undone styling with technical sportswear.

The Trend

Taking inspiration from the ‘normcore’ fashion trend, combining ‘normal’ and ‘hardcore’, ‘collections by sport’ features a scaled back colour palette to enhance the less-is-more approach, with minimal prints and splashes of blue and red. “Normcore is the biggest trend in fashion right now – we’ve taken it and added the Body touch, with pops of colour and stripes, to create the ultimate sportluxe wear.

“We wanted to create a collection that keeps girls motivated to stick to their New Year’s Resolutions, all year round. The beauty of this range is that it has the ability to take you from the sporting field, to Pilates and then off to brunch,” said Stephanie Keen, Cotton On Body activewear buyer.

A Chunk of Gold Accessories

Gold has been a part of my fashion diet forever. I just can’t seem to get enough of it! Gold accessories are the Biggest trend this season warming up your wardrobe. It empowers your outfit in a flash. With all the right pieces you can magically transform yourself into something new.

Adorn yourself with this HOT Trend of gold necklaces. They are seen at ACCESSORIZE!

 Here are some tips to find the right gold fashion accessories:

Check the level of gold colour. Beware of neck-wear pieces looking more orange in colour than gold.

Weight is important; you don’t want to feel weighed down, especially if you will be sporting it the entire day. Remember to keep your pieces in cool, dark storage places. Gold may tarnish easily in humidity.

For me quality is essential; you don’t want it crumbling off your neck, while Mr. Hottie is watching.

Here are my MUST Have’s Gold Fashion Necklaces:

Another Reason to Shop at ACCESSORIZE!

Jessie J -Elle-Style-Awards-2014

I cannot express the same for Jessie J – her slashed coral dress looks like it has gone thru the shredder. Those thigh-high boots and wig was just over the top.

A Night of Thrills with Madame Zingara

Nachi-Madame Zingara

I was privileged to join the IS team at their annual year-end function at Madame Zingara. The theme of the evening was “After Forever Tour” and captured the audience with an electrifying energy beyond your wildest dreams. I felt like royalty entering the venue on the red carpet, and soon was whisked away into a fairy-tale forest filled with magic and excitement. The costumes were breath-taking, with loads of sparkle, glitter and flamboyance. They have an in-house shop which can give you an instant make-over with face paintings and accessories giving you a taste of the fantasy. Their wide variety of crazy performers can keep you amused from the time you enter to the very end. I met the likes of the mummies, walking plants and the largest ostrich I have ever seen.

Lady in White

Also, I’m not too sure what the lady in the white lace was meant to be but she…but all too stunning. Once seated, you are informed by the waiters (also known as fairies) about the four course menu. My favorite meal was the chocolate chilli steak. Just writing about it makes my mouth water. One of my highlights for the evening was the singers, I have their song buzzing in my ears – “Diamonds are a girl’s best friend”. Another highlight was the ladies who came dressed in the cobalt. I was very impressed with myself that my blog made an impact. Thank you ladies xxx! For your support I will be giving a prize for the best Cobalt dress – Shakira you knocked my socks off, looking totally hot! You deserve a little something special :)
