Welcome to the 60’s

To celebrate Hairspray the Musical coming to town, we decided to see if we could bring the 60’s style into 2016. We do love a challenge! We grabbed our make up, hair straighteners and all the hairspray we could find and set about creating two 60’s inspired hair and make up looks.

The transition from the delicate ladylike looks of the 1950’s to the fancy-free 1960’s trends was epic, with the 1960’s giving us mini skirts, mods and brilliant bobs. Idols such as Audrey Hepburn, Brigitte Bardot and Edie Sedgwick introduced bold, graphic flicked eyeliner, pretty pale skin (hooray!) and nude lips. The soft nude lips were a real contrast from the popular red lip of the 1950’s and helped to emphasize the exaggerated eyes, which were heavy on the black mascara and fake lashes. A lot like today, the cheekbones were accentuated with a highlighter and a light rosy blush was applied.

In regards to hair, along with the famous beehives and bouffants, luckily for us hair was also worn long throughout the 1960’s, sometimes with a lift, thanks to some harsh backcombing and a ton of hairspray! I (Victoria) love a good ol’ beehive, but unfortunately I don’t really have the skills when it comes to updo’s, so instead I pulled the top of my hair into a small quiff fixed with an oversized gingham bow from Beau xoxo. To create the ringlet effect on the lengths, I used a really simple but effective trick and put my hair in a high bun for the morning, spritzing it with Rush hairspray to help add volume and twirling around my fingertips after taking it out of the bun. Bonza! Jo parted her hair into a gorgeous side parting, pulled the rest of the top of her hair back, and used Batiste dry shampoo to add volume. She then straightened the lengths to create a chic 60’s style.

To create our looks we both used Monu professional primerRimmel lasting foundation in Ivory and Bobbi Brown’s brow kit in brunette, because we love to rock a dark brow. Jo used an NYX eye-shadow in Girl Talk shade, her eyeliner is from Accessorize and her beautiful blush is from Laura Mercier and it is in the shade coral red. To finish the look she used NYX lipgloss in angel food cake. Yum! I focused on my eyes and used Supercat liner from Soap and Glory and lashings of Benefit’s roller lash mascara. For my face I used Benefit’s wonderful high beam highlighter and Bath and Unwind’s Fratboy blush. My lips sparkled thanks to Bobbi Brown’s pink apricot shimmer lipstick.

Harington’s Hotel Spa Day, Bath

Harrington's Hotel Spa Day, Bath | She and Hem | #lbloggers Harrington's Hotel Spa Day, Bath | She and Hem | #lbloggers  Harrington's Hotel Spa Day, Bath | She and Hem | #lbloggers Harrington's Hotel Spa Day, Bath | She and Hem | #lbloggers  Harrington's Hotel Spa Day, Bath | She and Hem | #lbloggers Harrington's Hotel Spa Day, Bath | She and Hem | #lbloggers Harrington's Hotel Spa Day, Bath | She and Hem | #lbloggers

It is pretty much impossible to have a bad time in Bath. The architecture is stunning and the range of eateries are out of this world. We consider ourselves to be ever so lucky that it is just a mere 12 minutes from Bristol on the train!

As you can imagine, we were extremely excited last month when an invite popped into our inbox from Harington’s Hotel asking if we’d like to go along to a relaxing spa day in the fair city. A spa day you say? Who could refuse? We spent the next week or so looking forward to bubbling jacuzzi’s, sweltering steam rooms and lounging for hours in the sauna. The reality was a little different, as despite their outdoor hot tub being particularly lovely, it was an exceptionally chilly day! Bravo to the girls who jumped straight in though!

Whilst they bubbled away we did what we do best and sampled as much food and drink as humanly possible. Winner! And we were very well catered for indeed with trays of delicious canapes, an incredible hot chocolate bar and boxes a plenty of the very-posh-indeed Charlotte Brunswick handmade chocolates! Crikey!

After a tour of some of the unique rooms in the hotel, we sat down for a cheeky espresso martini before heading off to view a couple of the hotel’s separate apartments, located just a couple of minutes walk from the main hotel. Their location is absolutely perfect, right in the very centre of the city and their interiors are just smashing. Almost as smashing as the delicious afternoon tea which rounded off a lovely day with some of our favourite local bloggers. Cakes, scones and sandwiches…oh my!

It’s fair to say we were quite full by the time we left but as we sat on the train home we discovered some fudge courtesy of Sarah’s Heavenly Fudge – along with a small porcelain bath tub of course – in our goody bag. You’ll be relieved to hear that we found some extra room.

Black, White and Red all over

We are loving the many colourful stripes of 2016 but there’s something so classically stylish about keeping things monochrome. It’s just such a delightfully versatile print dontcha think? However, being us, we like to throw in a few bright bold colours when putting together any outfit. Let’s make those black and white stripes really pop!

Black, White and Red all over | Boden | She and HemBlack, White and Red all over | Boden | She and HemBlack, White and Red all over | Boden | She and HemBlack, White and Red all over | Boden | She and Hem

We each styled the beautiful box pleated Maggie Ottoman Skirt from Boden*. The skirt is available in both mini and midi lengths and is in the most gorgeous heavy jersey material (zero ironing required – bonus!), plus it has pockets and you know how much we love a pocket!

I (Jo) plumped for the mini length which I was pleased to discover isn’t realllly so mini and hits just above the knee making it work appropriate! Hoorah. I teamed it with a yellow Visual Cashmere jumper, also from Boden*, which I thought helped make quite a nice transitional outfit thanks to the 3/4 sleeves. FYI these photos were taken on the one day of the year that the sun was out in full force so I got a bit carried away and thought Spring had arrived! The white polkadot tights are from UKTights (although they don’t seem to exist anywhere in the world – if anyone knows where I can get another pair please leave a comment!) and my black boots are an old pair from THE WHITEPEPPER. I finished off by tying a polkadot scarf round my head which was in no way whatsoever a cunning ploy just to hide my roots.

Victoria is totally rocking the midi length with gusto (we both agreed we feel much more comfortable in some sort of heel when wearing anything this length) and when teamed with Boden’s* poppy red Everyday Jumper those stripes become extra eye-catching. It’s such a good look – so much so in fact that Victoria ended up wearing a variation of this outfit to London Fashion Week….but that’s a post for another day. She kept her tights nude and finished off with those amazing Orla Kiely for Clarks shoes that make me so jealous whenever I see them. Oh Orla, please please please do more high-street collaborations!

If you can find a more exciting pair of flats (good luck!), send those links my way, or drop them in the comments below. Whatever kind of shoe I’m looking for, I can always find something I like on ASOS, especially when it comes to the more colourful option.

BLINGSTER BRONTO rainbow fun sunglases | Spangle | She and Hem
BLINGSTER BRONTO Rainbow Rims | £48 | Spangled

Last week I asked on Twitter if anyone knew where I could find a pair of really fun sunglasses ready for London Fashion Week, and the lovely and wise @cloveroverover pointed me in the direction of Spangled. My goodness, I’ve never such a bright, original and eye-popping collection. As a not so secret Jurassic Park fan, I thought these yellow and blue dinotastic specs were pretty roar-some, with some truly TRex-cellent colouring. Popping these bad boys on will ensure you get a raptor-ous reception, wherever you go. 

Rounded sunglasses | Mango | She and Hem
Rounded Sunglasses | £19.99 | Mango

Sometimes I feel confident enough to wear multicoloured glasses with plastic dinosaurs and sequins on, but other times I just want to hide behind the largest sunglasses I can find and watch the world go by. These rounded Mango frames are perfect for the latter. They are just as striking, but in a completely different, more refined way. With that delicate and glorious shade of gold, I’m sold. 

Grey structured winged tote handbag | River Island | She and Hem
Grey Structured Winged Tote Handbag | £47.00 | River Island

How cute is this structured winged tote from River Island? Very is the answer. I just can’t take my eyes off it!

Apothecary Print Travel Wallet | Yumi | She and Hem
Apothecary Print Travel Wallet | £32.00 | Yumi

Last, but not least, is this cheeky little find from Yumi. Now, we’ve written about Yumi quite a few times, but in the past we’ve focused on their boots, coats and dresses. I’ve sinced discovered they also so blooming great accessories, like this quirky travel wallet. With items this great, I predict that you’ll be seeing a lot more of Yumi in future Accessories to Murder posts! 

Until next week, keep accessorizing!

Hello and welcome to the 21st Accessories to Murder! Pop the fizz and celebrate, we are 21 today! Not only that, but we are focusing on all things Valentine’s Day this week AND I’ve found the perfect pair of pink heart tights! Are you ready to delve into the world of amazing cupidly good accessories? Excellent! Without further ado, here are the accessories that have made it onto this week’s She and Hem’s Most Wanted.

Accessories to Murder | She and Hem | Valentine's Day | Heart Earrings

Accessories to Murder | She and Hem | Valentine's Day | Heart Watch
Red Strap Heart Dial Watch | £40.00 | Oasis

Girl, you know what time it is. It’s time to head to Oasis to crush on their new accessories, of course!

Just watch out for all the compliments.

This vintage washed weekend jumper from Urban Outfitters looks perfect for snuggling up on the sofa, and the gorgeous embroidery ensure that it’s totally acceptable to team it with jeans and head out to celebrate just how great the weekend is. Now, I don’t mean Canadian singer, songwriter and producer The Weeknd, although I’m reliably informed that he’s quite good too.

Accessories to Murder | She and Hem | Valentine's Day | Heart Tights
Sheer Luxe Heart Tights | £22 | American Apparel

You’ll look so perfect standing there in these American Apparel underwear heart tights!  I’ve got so many pairs of black heart tights, but I’ve never been able to find a pair with pink hearts on, so I’m pretty stoked about these gems. Eat your heart out competitors, I’ll be heading to American Apparel for all of my tights needs this season!

Accessories to Murder | She and Hem | Valentine's Day | Heart Bag
Heart Cross Body Bag | £26 | Skinnydip via Selfridges

Whilst on my long search for the dreamiest heart shaped bag, there were many strong contenders. Primark have an excellent black sparkly version, as featured on our Instagram last week, but it is Skinnydip’s heart bag that wins the coveted final place on She and Hem’s Most Wanted this week. Although this is quite plain for Skinnydip, if you want a subtle nod to Valentine’s Day without going OTT (like I probably will be), then I think this is The One.

Until next week, keep accessorizing!

Stripe a Pose

Stripe a Pose | She and Hem | Boden

If you follow us on Instagram, you may have spotted a couple of weeks ago that we took part in Boden’s Hue Monday campaign (read their blog post here) which saw us embrace (literally) allllllll the colours in a bid to combat the year’s most dreary day. We took rather a lot of photos for the occasion and liked them so much we thought we would share them on here too.

Stripe a Pose | She and Hem | BodenStripe a Pose | She and Hem | BodenStripe a Pose | She and Hem | BodenStripe a Pose | She and Hem | BodenStripe a Pose | She and Hem | Boden

Boden have got so many fabulous and colourful pieces for SS16 but we were both really keen to style some stripes, as they are going to be big news this season. Thankfully this fab multi coloured print was available in both a tunic style dress and a top so we took a visit to twin town and loved it so much we are probably going to move there! We were both a little nervous at first about stripes (in all shapes and sizes) but we are now well aboard this particular trend train. Expect to see us striping a pose in a twin town near you! Speaking of matchy matchy, how gorgeous is the Amanda bag? Phwoar. Some silver sparkles and a rose mac later and we were hot to trot! No blues in these hues!

This lace skater dress from Ted Baker is simply stunning.

The skirt is pleated too, how trendy.

Break out your hearts, roses and stupid cupid accessories -it’s time to get soppy guys. These new Valentine’s dresses from Emily and Fin will be more than just a February fling!

If you hadn’t noticed, it’s flippin’ freezing (brrrr) at the moment but thankfully both the Scarlett Heart* and Bed of Roses* lend themselves to being paired with winter warmers. Victoria has teamed her ravishing red frock with a black cardigan from M&S, a black belt, polka-dot tights from UKTights* and black flats from F&F. I (Jo) have also embraced all things black (to match my heart – jokes) by layering my rosy number over a sparkly black thermal top from M&S, a black belt, tights from M&S and Topshop pumps. My glittery heart bag is from good ol’ Primark. The roses were a gift from a passing handsome stranger*
