Classic Girl Crush: J.Lo edition

Hola! Let’s talk about Jennifer Lopez for a minute. Girlfriend is 42, that’s FORTY TWO years old. Wow.


My girl crush on Jenny from the Block probably started around 2000 when she started releasing (in my opinion) all the classics, ‘I’m Real’, ‘If You Had My Love’, ‘Let’s Get Loud’ and not forgetting ‘Love Don’t Cost a Thing’ – the video for which, as if you needed refreshing, featured J.Lo strip off all her finery and end up in just her FINE-ry on the beach. It also had that sweet dance breakdown near the end. I was in love.

Fast forward to ‘Jenny From the Block’ i.e the Bennifer days. I spent all my time running round in a string vest, cropped velour sweatpants, jaunty caps, frosted make-up and most worryingly high-heeled cat boots. I wish I had a photo to show you I truly do. ‘All I Have’ is still my karaoke go to. Rap and all.


I liked to think I looked a little something like this, I probably looked more like a horrific accident in a Claire’s  Accessories.

 Fast, fast forward to recent times (we don’t talk of the Marc Antony wilderness years) and as documented above, J.Lo has never looked more incredible. I don’t bandy the word goddess around easily but…you don’t get to be the legs of Venus for nothing, amirite?  This final set of pictures, I feel, sum up what Jennifer Lopes IS, what she means to me and what she does best. It’s sparkly, it’s silky, it’s short, it’s not for the shy and retiring. It is LA LOPEZ.


Tell me your favourite J.Lo look in the comments! Besos.


Girl Crush – Music Edition

There has been an explosion of talented, stylish and individual female singers on the scene in recent months, and here are a few of my favourites…


Lana Del Rey – Lana is my queen. Those lips, that hair, that voice. She is sultry, sexy and rocks a retro Americana vibe better than anyone else I’ve ever seen.

Marina (of the Diamonds) Although she made her debut a few years ago, I love 2012’s version, with the candy floss hair, beauty marks and 50s pastel styling. Now, I love an eyelash and this girl ROCKS an eyelash!


Rita Ora – Like Rihanna Mark II. Our Rita is everything Ri-Ri ain’t. Grungy without being dirty, edgy without being trashy and stylish without being a fashion victim. I see big things for this girl in the future, and she’s dating Rob Kardashian…clever girl.


What they don’t tell you in the guidebooks…

Heading to Barcelona soon, hope this comes in handy!

¡Biba España!

Just a few rules I’ve learned so far. I think it’s interesting to compare/contrast with/to American etiquette, or how there are some things on here we’d never even consider.

  1. Do not walk inside of a house barefoot. It’s considered very rude.
  2. Do not eat while walking. You will receive confused stares. (Fast food and eating on-the-go does not exist here.) Spaniards believe that there is always time to take a moment to eat. If you don’t have the time, then by golly, you make it!
  3. Do not say “sorry” too much. It annoys the Spaniards. They make fun of how often Americans apologize.
  4. Do not yawn. EVER!!!!!! (Very, very rude)
  5. Always let the older person take your seat on a bus if there are no seats available.
  6. Do not tip the waiter at a restaurant, or if you feel like you must, just round the change up.
  7. Ladies, ignore the…
