These picks from House of Fraser balance out day to night pretty well, the patterned Mango dress is the easy day option and pretty cute with the Peter Pan collar to top it off. The striped French Connection dress is so very me - I have a thing for stripes - but the glitter means I can take it out into the night. And finally, the TFNC dress, a brand which I always spot great stuff from but am yet to own anything by them. I love the swing look of this dress, casual night or easy day, I just think it would fall beautifully.
And, to go with all the above, I would more than happily pick the Michael Kors Jet Set tote - my lust have bag for the past year or so now. Would be the perfect go with everything, chuck everything in handbag, without being too brash 'hey I'm a designer bag' bag.
Heading to a completely casual 35degree week in Austin, Texas as this post goes up! Hoping to track down some more staple dresses, skirts, designer bags and maybe see some sights... If there's time.

The praises of Moroccanoil run far and wide - that liquid gold has the power to instantly transform pretty much everybody's hair. The Moroccanoil Shampoo* & Conditioner* had me thinking there may be a slightly less concentrated version to keep on top of any dry hair problems.
I've said it before - and most likely will again - my thin hair can't handle much moisture. The concentrated moroccan oil is perfect if applied solely to the very tips of my hair, anything else and it needs a wash almost instantly. The shampoo and conditioner is stellar in its moisturising qualities. You're left with the same can't stop touching it hair and it lasts until the next wash.
I normally wash my hair every other day, but using these had me washing it daily because of the moisturise overload. I trialled it on a friend with thicker locks and she absolutely loved it. It instantly soothed her dried out, long overdue for a cut hair and there was no problem with an overload of moisture.
Basically, for those with seriously dry hair or that are blessed with a thick head of hair - these will be perfect for easy moisture. Thin hair might struggle with the infinite moisture injection, so should maybe keep these for an intense treatment instead.

It's that time of the year again, NE1's Newcastle Fashion Week is back!
If you've been around North of London for a while, you'll know that I've been heavily involved with the run up to the week each year, 2013 been no different.
Today is the launch day, after our amazing exclusive party last night from our Mercedes Benz sponsor, today sees the first event, Newcastle Fashion Weekend.
Two days of shopping, demonstrations, catwalks and some great guests. I'm particularly excited to see Poppy Dinsey & Victoria White with the rest of our panels.
We then have Martini Manicure Monday at Fat Buddha, the always amazing Northumbria fashion show at the Baltic and the third year for our Fashion Front Row event. Thursday has a day devoted to Eldon Square, followed by our own Royal Wedding event at the Theatre Royal - all squeezed in before Saturday's closing party!
We also have the exclusive - and very cute - Electrik Sheep designed t-shirts this year. Exclusive to Fenwicks, as always, with one of my favourite designs thus far.
So, any North Easters head down to Newcastle city centre for the events! Full line up is on the Get Into Newcastle site and of course the NFW Facebook page.
Head to the Northumbria Student's Union today & tomorrow for our first event!
