Eye Candy: Wimbledon 2015

July 15, 2015
David Beckham Wimbledon 2015

Wimbledon has become, like most events in the world, a place for celebs to be seen. This year, more than ever, it seemed like I was looking at pictures of red carpet an awards show rather than courtside at a sports event. Nevertheless, I ain’t complaining. For this gave me the opportunity to ogle at gorgeous men, wearing impeccable suits and acting like English gentlemen. I mean…that is the dream, isn’t it?

Top 5: Beautiful Celeb Kids

July 10, 2015
beautiful celebrity children

Celebrities seem to have it all – charisma, good looks and success written in their stars. It’s no surprise that their children seem to luck out too. And it seems like celeb kids are popping up all over the place, with one more beautiful than the other – here are 5 of those kids [and young adults] who’ve caught my eye.

Eve Hewson

Eve-Hewson

The blue-eyed daughter of Bono and Ali Hewson made her forray into acting in 2005 and has steadily been appearing in movies since. She doesn’t seem to have any musical inclinations like her father, yet. But here’s hoping. You can currently watch her on the series The Knick.

Aryan Khan

Come on, I had to represent some Bollywood on this list and the son of the King of Bollywood is the perfect inclusion. Aryan Khan, spawn of SRK, is only 18 years old. He currently studies in London but rumour has it that big time Bollywood producers are already vying to cast Aryan in his first film.

Kaia Gerber

As the daughter of Cindy Crawford and Randy Gerber, Kaia pretty much hit the gene-pool jackpot. Not only is she a ditto copy of her supermodel mom, the 13 year old [!] has just signed on with IMG Models and is making her Vogue debut soon.

Lily Rose Depp

Lily-Rose-Depp

Like Kaia, Lily Rose is the mirror image of her mother Vanessa Paradis with some of the mysterious charm of her father Johnny Depp thrown in. The 16 year old has been pretty elusive but caught the world’s attention this year when she attended the Chanel AW show with her mom in Paris and last week, when she walked the Chanel couture runway.

Lily Collins 

lily-collinsThe daughter of iconic singer Phil Collins and queen of eyebrows Lily Collins has become a well known actress over the last few years. With appearances in big films like The Blind Side and an interesting look, she is meant for big things.

Interior Infatuation: Malachite

July 8, 2015

Home decor has become an interest of mine ever since I got married and moved into my own place. I am constantly looking at interiors blogs and have a slightly scary obsession with Pinterest (see here). One interiors trend that has currently caught my eye is malachite. I love anything stone, crystal and texture incorporated into decor, and malachite is the perfect amalgamation of all those things. With it’s rich green colour and swirly pattern, the use of malachite (especially when paired up with gold or brass) gives off a very luxurious vibe.

For me, the best way to show off a little malachite would be with an oversized painting on an otherwise neutral wall or some gorgeous decorative boxes.

Weekend Playlist: Slow Jams

July 2, 2015
weekend playlist including usher, jhene aiko and miguel

Work-mode is off and the weekend is ON. I’m staying in this Thursday night, with no plans other than eating and enjoying some super chilled out tunes. I am currently obsessed with Miguel and all of his songs – I just love his sensual sound. I went from listening to him to Usher to the Fugees to Sam Smith. I know, it doesn’t really make sense. But one thing these songs do have in common is the relaxed mood they’ll put you in.

Share some of your favourite slow jams with me. I am always looking for recommendations.
