Pigeons & Peacocks




I was recently on the London College of Fashion website as I was requesting a Short Courses 2010 prospectus.
Whilst applying for one I noticed that there was also a form to sign up for their magazine.

The magazine is called 'Pigeons & Peacocks'.
I received my copy of Pigeons & Peacocks in the post last Friday and I'm really impressed.
I guess I was expecting it to be a small flimsy magazine, but it's the complete opposite.

Pigeons & Peacocks is crammed full of fashion photoshoots, interviews and
trend reports.
I highly recommend it.

You can request a copy by following this link and signing up.

What Katie Would Like - Part 2


I love this dress. It looks a lot nicer in real life!

These heels are amazing!


Quite simply because I adore Audrey Hepburn.
You get bags like this in Topshop that cost around 20 quid and this one only costs 6 quid! Bargain!

Again, you get purses like this in Topshop that cost 10 quid and this costs 4!

Back to brown


Cheryl Cole has dyed her hair back to brown after dying it red just under a month ago.

Definitely prefer it brunette!

What Katie Would Like - Part 1

Would love to add these bad boys to my shoe collection! Studded boots are bang on trend and the bright colour makes them stand out more.


I LOVE this dress from ASOS. Shame it costs 150 quid.

Doesn't look special from the front but it has a cut-out back and sequins drape over your back.
Love it.
Available at Topshop

Because you're worth it!

Cheryl Cole has been announced as the new brand spokesperson for L'Oreal.
Cheryl will also feature in it's campaign for their new hair care range Elvive Full Restore 5.
The new range is going to be launched in September and was developed after L'Oreal research found out that British women shared 5 common hair concerns.
Full Restore 5 aims to strengthen, soften, thicken, revitalise and add shine.
L'Oreal said they decided to choose Cheryl for the campaign as she is "glamorous, stylish and a talented young woman whose warmth and charm has captivated the nation and helped to establish her as an inspiration to women throughout the UK."

Topshop Cosmetics

Topshop have announced today that they will be launching a cosmetics line in 2010.
They've not released many details about the line but it'll be likely that they are getting an international make-up artist to work on the project.
The make-up range will secure Topshop's status as the one-stop shop for the latest trends in both fashion & beauty.
Kate Moss' new Autumn/Winter 2009 collection also launches in Topshop today!
