Coachella: Best Looks that Coach us to Look Ooh La La

Please don't get me started; I'd sooo rather be at Coachella right now! The sunny weather, tanned skin, easy-breezy way-of-life, and flowers in my hair, lots and lots of them. Instead of yearning and daydreaming of the day I get to experience this hippie-inspired festival, I get to drool over all best looks which paraded through the crowd at Coachella instead.

So consequently, I present to you my favourite styles at Coachella 2014.

I thought Kendall Jenner, Selena Gomez and Paris Hilton looked easy-breezy-beautiful, adopting the statement jewellery and patterned-flowery clothing of a true hippie wonderfully:

Chanel Iman and Julianne Hough emphasised on an elegant and classic look yet still focusing on the hippie themed style perfectly. They both looked drop-dead gorgeous:

Someone I refuse to be humble about, my hunky husband Jared Leto never letting me down and showing me the reasons why I did (will) marry him:

Even though all these looks are effortlessly beautiful, none of them beats the queen of Coachella, the one-and-only, my favourite celebrity hippie, Vanessa Hudgens. She is undoubtedly the first person I look up when Coachella is on, because even when her look is bad, it's good:

So there you have it, my favourite looks at Coachella 2014. Hopefully next year I'll be pouncing around this hippie fest (with Jared Leto by my side), but until then which looks were your favourite or least favourite at this years Coachella?

Lots of love,

Breakfast Blues

My favourite meal of the day; Breakfast. The breaking of the fast, without it I'm miserable, literally! I 'splurge' on my breakfast, as I believe in the age old saying that breakfast is the most important meal of the day! I truly push on the fact that it is, by all means, a necessity to have one moment of absolute solitude and tranquility before you head on off to your busy day! And what better way to accomplish that than by spending a few minutes in the morning with a hot date, breakfast.

"But I'm too busy for breakfast!" If Audrey Hepburn has time to get dolled up and venture down to Tiffany and Co. to eat her breakfast then you inevitably have time to get out of bed and into your kitchen! Wake up that half an hour early, prepare it the night before and refrigerate it, sleep earlier, do anything that could give you that bit more time in the morning. We take it for granted, breakfast is there we just have to grab it! So eat, it's simple and easy, eat, eat and eat some more. Then let the day come at you like a gale force wind, but you'll be prepared since you're tummy is full and you're mind is nourished.

One of my top breakfast meals is white scrambled eggs with smoked salmon and spinach on top of granary toast! A breakfast filled with delicious protein and iron. I also include a green tea and carrot juice. Carrot juice has many benefits but one of the most important is the vital antioxidant called beta carotene; It helps the skin, is a rich source of vitamin A and fights of certain cancers! Hello healthy breakfast at its best. 

If you're looking for something a little more sweet than savoury in the morning then why not opt for another one of my favourites: brown toast with honey and blueberries! Honey is the healthy type of sugar and it has been said that one must eat a cup of blueberries a day, as they are full of antioxidants. Two birds one stone? It's messy, fun and extremely tasty!

So what's your favourite breakfast meal? Sweet or savoury? Coffee or tea? 

Hopefully these tempting treats will convince you to kick-start your day in the right direction!
Until next time,

A Springy Spring Special

Oh beautiful, colourful, blissful spring, how I've missed you and your hippie inspiring feel for all things beautiful! Yes, it's that time of year again! The flowers are blooming, the sun is shining and everyone is just that little bit more friendly and happy! Oh spring, you embrace me with nothing but love.... and flowers in my hair.

Anyone care to pick me up and drive down the coast of California with flowers in our hair and the Beach Boys playing on full blast? Or maybe actually venture off to a beach and find some actual beach boys?

If it isn't yet obvious I am head-over-heals in love with flowers:

They fill me with absolutely joy and smiles, and put the verb sprung in spring. Who ever walked around a park and wasn't embraced with the beautiful, natural colours of mother-nature? If you haven't than it isn't spring, and if it isn't spring then you're probably sitting by your desk desperately waiting for that glorious season to appear as it pours with rain and whilst you shiver on your chair because the heating just happens to be broken during the coldest day of the year. Have patience, for the rainbow will soon appear!

Tip of the day: If you're in desperate need for that wavy, beach haired look (which adds that extra oomph to the flowers you'll soon include) wash your hair before you sleep, brush it out and use an oil. I like to use Kerastase Elixir K Ultime and Kerastase Ciment Thermique, as well as adding volume and natural shine it also smells of spring which only adds to the overall goodness of the season! Once you're hair has dried tie it up in a ponytail (I don't like to leave the top rubber-band too tight, as it tends to shape the top part of my hair funnily) and plait it. Finally get some beauty rest, in order to wake up fresh with wavy goodness and hopefully, if my fairy god-mother answers my prayers, natural cherry-blossoms growing out from your hair! 
Please do share your best spring-tips, as I'd love to know what makes spring that little bit more special for you.

Until Next time my Helianthemum Apenninum's (the binomial name for the delicate white rockrose),

Love Rebecca
