It’s all about tan, man

Whilst I try and get over my obsession with pink, I’m becoming equally as involved with all things tan.

I’m on the hunt for a tan suede jacket so my best friend Pinterest is helping me out and inspiring me as always. I wish I wasn’t so addicted, I might have more of a life… *ahem*

I love the whole 70s vibe and actually remember my dad having THE coolest suede bomber jacket. It sucks he got rid of it.

It all comes round again doesn’t it?

Check out my top picks for all things tan, man.

Kendall Jenner’s landed THE hottest Vogue cover and people are going cray

Kendall Jenner, sister of Kim and best friend of Cara, has just landed her first proper Vogue cover. “Proper”, because she has technically graced the cover previously, if only on a 52-page special for subscribers on models who use social media.

At long last one of the most controversial models of the moment, and someone who is probably sick to death of being told that she’s not a “real” supermodel, gets some credit for all her hard work.

Naturally, the entire Kardashian clan (and Ryan Seacrest, for some reason) were on hand to congratulate her, with the help of balloon letters, selfies and giant photos of her own face.

A little background info on the cover: Despite repeated calls from die-hard Vogue fans who believe that fash-un magazines feature only fash-un models and fash-un people living fash-un lives, the world’s best known fash-un monthly has strived to keep up with the IT models of recent years.

As a result, we’ve seen everyone from Kimye (complete with wedding dress) to Kate Upton doing their best statuesque pose on the cover. The argument is always the same; these people aren’t *real* models or artists, their very existence should appal Vogue and its high-calibre readership.

To these people, Kendall is the antithesis of everything Vogue. She shouldn’t be anywhere near the cover – let alone on the all-important September issue.

Throughout the interview, Kendall pleads to be “taken seriously” and insists that her multimillion-dollar modelling career is “not a joke or a stunt”, but the article itself send a conflicting message.

Subject matter revolves predominantly around growing up in the spotlight, her famous sisters and her dad’s sex transition. This is another thing that’s rattled the cage of Vogue fans.

Possibly writing with the aim of riling up fashion fanatics even further, Vogue published a line comparing Ken-J to Linda Evangelista, one of the most admired supermodels of all time.

Talk about rubbing salt into the wound. But then again, is it really Vogue’s fault that people are so salty over a single magazine cover? No, Kendall might not be the perfect supermodel – but she gets people talking in a way that a safe option like Edie Campbell, Gisele or (God forbid) yet ANOTHER Kate Moss cover would not.

If anyone can prove that all press is good press, it’s the Kardashian clan. And hey, at least it isn’t Kylie.

Millie Mackintosh gets body shamed for hairy legs

When Millie Mackintosh posted a photo from her holiday in a French ski resort we weren’t expecting to see an argument about body shaming and feminism.

But that’s exactly what happened when the reality star posted a photo of her legs on Instagram.

//instagram.com/p/BHoc6DcgRl0/embed/

One user wrote: “How hairy are her thighs?”

Another, named Kelah O’Neil, wrote: “She didn’t shave her legs uh oh she’s losing my brownie points.”

Lorna Barlow simply posted: “Hairy dog legs.”

Most of the posts supported Millie, with many women saying they didn’t shave their thighs either.

One wrote: “Seriously, some of you need to take a long, hard, serious look in the mirror and sort yourselves out!!!! Women tearing down other women. Gross.”

Don’t worry Millie, we don’t shave that high either…

8 of the prettiest wallpaper prints around

Sometimes, a lick of paint just won’t do.

We all love a feature wall, but that doesn’t necessarily need to mean a bright, garish print or a wall full of frames and art.

The folks at Murals Wallpaper have got you guys (or walls) covered. You can even get your own photographs blown up! Now, that’s memorabilia.

Take a look through these beauties…

Almond-Branches (1)

I love the ancient, oriental feel of this print. Yet, somehow it still feels modern and timeless.

Sun-Kissed-Jungle

The leaf print can be seen in fashion and interior design magazine around at the moment! I love the tropical feel. I would feel like I was in The Jungle Book! Thumbs up.

Polka-Dots

The polkadot print isn’t one that ever seems to date. This wallpaper is such a fun concept. It’d be great in a home office or kids playroom! Don’t forget, clashing patterns – love them.

Tropical-Vintage-Trees

Travel to California with this awesome print. The filter gives it a retro twist. Pop a blow-up paddling pool in the room to really make you feel like you’re on hol. Ha!

Indigo-Ombre

It’s not just hair getting the ombre treatment! This indigo dip-dye style theme is so subtle, rather calming and sophisticated too. This colour would look lovely with a bright pop of orange!

fjord

How gorgeous is this photograph? This completely takes you to another world, it’s like you’re literally floating on water. You would need to keep the room simple and tidy so as not to overcrowd the room. Let the wall do the talking.

Textures-Clean-White-Brick

The exposed brick theme is seen throughout Sweet Nothings. I can’t get enough of it. This is brilliant as it takes half the time creating a real brick wall would. Pair with industrial-style art, copper lamps and grey furnishings to really bring the look to life.

classic-world-map

This one is probably my favourite. As I’ve recently come back from travelling, (no, I don’t know why I came back) it really makes me relish every single place I’ve explored and what it meant to me. The muted colours on this map mean that adding colour to the room won’t ruin the vibe. You could also mark off all the places you’ve been and have some fun with it!
