On Thursday the 4th of April I was kindly invited to attend the 'Zen Lifestyle' event where they were promoting their newly revamped salon. On my arrival I was greeted with by a lovely staff member who offered me a glass of champagne (which pretty much made my day), needless to say all of the staff were completely welcoming and friendly which set the atmosphere for me. Since this was my first blog event I had ever been to the anticipation was slightly sky rocketing, however as soon as I got there I immediately met some fellow bloggers who were just the loveliest ladies; I genuinely had a great laugh and a brilliant time at this event. I fell in love with the decor of the salon , the deep purple contrasting with the white generated a very chilled atmosphere. I was delighted with the service and with my goodie bag containing 'Zen', 'Murad' products; I will be sure to take a little trip again to the salon and it's a thumbs up from me!

Dress (asos). Cape (TKMAXX). Jumper (dorothy Perkins). Bag (dorothy perkins).
For tonight's outfit I decided to pair this chiffon shirt dress with a camel coloured jumper and teal green cape; which gives of a slight impression of a Mrs Sherlock..however since spring hasn't quite decided to make any sort of appearance in Scotland at the moment the cape coat is more than acceptable i'd say. I usually do my outfit shots during the daytime so I hope the lighting isn't too horrible. Anyway as far as my hair and makeup I kept it minimalistic using neutral tones as well as classical with the swiped eyeliner and tight curled hair.

Although my site is solely based around fashion aspects and style perspectives, I feel as though I don't boast quit enough about entertainment. When I say 'entertainment' I don't mean cirque du soleil; as intriguing as that is. I want my blog to generate a more broad outlook, my love of fashion has introduced me to many things including a deep admiration for the artistic entertainment industry. Since these basically go hand in hand with each other it makes me eager to blog more about things such as; behind the scenes, documentary's, biography's, etc. Inspiring entertainment is showcased through a plethora of networks, the most accessible alliance being the TV, internet subscriptions, and magazine sites. From these I indeed to collect as much research as possible to produce further recommendations, reviews and the general spiel for future posts.
To start with I have recently been watching a TV series called 'Lily Cole's Art Matters' which plays on 'Sky Arts' on Tuesdays at 8pm on British tellevision to 'Sky' customers. This TV series is already in it's 3rd episode in, however there are a few more episodes to still to air. Which you probably gathered from the main title the host of this show is Lily Cole. Lily is a renowned British model and former art history student (which helps for an interesting input throughout the show). Throughout the series Lily gets the chance to meet some of the worlds most acclaimed artists, including: Christo, Antony Gormley, Tacita Dean, Gabriel Orozco, Marc Quinn and Fiona Banner. She also gets to engage with these artist through which she discovers their perspective to what aspired them through their most celebrated work and commences on a journey through each artists next project (some of which have taken years to develop). This show is defiantly one to watch if you're interested in art and artists like the ones included as the show captures the essence of their work and has defiantly given me more of an insight to the genius behind the work; so to speak.
