BEAUTY MISSGUIDE – GOLDEN GIRL

Wanna look like you’ve just stepped off a flight back from your holidays? Check out our top tips on how to get that Bahama mama look and dress to make the most of it!

How to Tan in Summer

Tanning tip – If you’re out partying this weekend, start your prep early!

For the ultimate medium toned tan, all you need is a St. Moriz Medium Mousse and a slick of the St. Moriz Instant Wash Off Body Tan before you start getting ready to really enhance your glow – whilst keeping your look chic and natural. Keep your tan fresh by moisturising daily with an oil free moisturiser to make your look last. Double check you’ve moisturised top-to-toe before you apply your tan, paying attention to the danger zones – aka wrists, elbows, ankles, knees and feet – anywhere that may be dry and make your fake tan obvious! Remember – let moisturiser fully sink in before you apply any tan to avoid major streakage!

Tanning for summer

Nail tip – Choose a warm toned pink or purple, when you’ve got a subtle matte golden glow you can go OTT on the nail art!

Clothes – Lighter shades can accentuate tanned skin, like warm pale shades of brown, light blues, pinks and purples. We’re loving the Sienna Slinky Crossover Back Midi Dress – the perfect shape for showing off tanned limbs. Avoid gold tones and shades of tan as they blend in with golden skin.

BLOGGER INTERVIEW: 1 FINE DAI

Visa Lom is the badass chick behind the blog 1 Fine Dai. Her killer style gives us serious wardrobe envy and we’re obsessed with her monochrome vibes. We wanted to know more about the babe behind the blog so got in touch to discuss all things blog-related… 

Hi Visa! We totally love your look and check in on the blog on a daily basis. So tell us, what’s the story behind 1 Fine Dai?

It started out as a place to keep a log of all my outfits, just as an archive to look back through.

 Can you sum up your blogs content in one sentence?

The content mainly focuses on OOTDS and product reviews.

 Where did the name 1 Fine Dai come from?

It was completely random and I just stuck with it. 

Do you find it hard to juggle your blogging with work and social life?

Somewhat, but I try not to let it affect my life by only blogging when I have the time, or when I really feel the need to.
 

Where does you outfit inspiration come from?

A lot of it comes from tumblr, and of course fellow bloggers. 

What social media platforms do you think works best for blogging and increasing followers?

When I started out I found that blogger was the best platform for blogging, due to its relative ease of use. I also found Tumblr to be a great platform to complement my blog by increasing the potential reader pool and increasing followers. 

What’s the most challenging thing about blogging for you?

Finding the time to do so and figuring out new ideas to keep the blog fresh and interesting. 

What’s the biggest perk to blogging?

Building relationships with other bloggers. It’s really rewarding when you can connect with others who share the same interests.

 Can you give us a few tips on blog photography?

Good lighting and learning what conditions work best for your camera are crucial. Photo editing is also a must if you don’t have the best of cameras. 

What’s the one piece in your wardrobe you couldn’t live without?

As cliché as it is, it’s gotta be a pair of black skinny jeans. They can be worn and styled in so many different ways.

 

What’s the one beauty product you couldn’t live without?

Sunscreen, since I am pretty sensitive to the sun!


Why do you think blogging is becoming so popular?

I think it’s because the Internet, along with social media has become more prevalent, making blogging one of the best outlets to share personal opinions and ideas. 

How do you cope with negative feedback or comments on social networking sites?

If it’s constructive, I take it into consideration and see where I could make positive changes. If the comments are not constructive, I just move on. I think its best to not dwell on it.

What advice would you give to aspiring bloggers?

Blog because you enjoy it. And don’t feel discouraged if you don’t have as many readers or visitors as you’d like or expect.

HOW TO START A FASHION BLOG

We’re always crushing hard on our fave bloggers with their smokin’ style and killer writing skills.  But, being a fashion blogger isn’t all about looking fierce and travelling the world.  Wanna be the next Llymlrs or Kavita?  We’ve got the tips and tricks to get your blog up and running.

Getting Started

Think you’re killing it in the style stakes but no idea how to get your blog up and running?  We’ll have you sparking a Facebook frenzy in no time with these top tips to getting started.

How to become a fashion blogger

1. Picking the Right Name – We’re taking tips from the pros on this one.  Choose a name that encapsulates your personality and sets you apart from the rest.  Some of our faves include: Native Fox, The Haute Pursuit and Melon Lady.

Choosing the Right Platform for Your Blog

2. Choosing the Right Platform – If you’re a blogging newbie, pick a platform that’s easy to use and doesn’t need a lot of knowledge to get started.  Blogger is a fave with fashion bloggers as it’s free, easy to customise and simple to set up.

If you’re a a bit of a blogger pro like high street fashion lover Lily Melrose, you might want to try your hand at a self-hosted blog on a platform like WordPress.  You’ll have 100% control of your blog but you’ll need to create your own logo and have a theme added to the back end, so be prepared to hire a designer if you don’t know how to do it yourself.

defining your blog content

3. Defining Content – Stand out from the crowd with super-hot styling and a personality to match. Beaming blogger babe Lucy of Lulutrixabelle.com shows us how it’s done with clashing prints and cool co-ords combos.  Experiment with your blog posts and find your unique voice. It’s a saturated community so you don’t want to offer the same as everyone else.

Schedule Content for your Blog

4. Have a Plan – Being successful isn’t just about having a lust-have look.  Give your readers a reason to visit your blog by keeping it fresh with regular content.  Teen blogger Tolly Dolly Posh shows us how with her super-organised whiteboard and planning schedule.  Learn from your audience, give them what they want and just you’ll be a Twitter sensation in no time.

Come back next week when we’ll be giving you hints on how you can write great content that’ll have your readers coming back for more…

DESIGN DIARIES: EMMA LOUISE BLACKETT

A few months ago, we invited students at Manchester Metropolitan University to design what they saw as a summer essential for 2014.  We promised the best an internship at MGHQ and told them that the winning design would be created and sold onsite.  We were blown away by the entries but there could only be one winner.  This is Emma Blackett’s story on the inspiration behind her design and a diary of her time at Missguided…

Designing for Missguided

The competition

Studying fashion design and technology at Manchester Metropolitan University lets me hear about fashion competitions easily, especially if the brand’s head office is based in Manchester. One of my tutors posted a link to the Missguided competition.  The brief?  To design the ultimate SS14 festival piece that would be produced and sold on the Missguided website. I thought this was an amazing opportunity, not only because the winning design would have your name featured next to it, but you would also win a week’s internship at Missguided’s head office and even get £500 to spend on their website! After reading the brief I thought that I better start researching festival outfits on Missguided’s website, as well as competitor’s websites and prediction forecast sites.

Festival Design Inspiration

Co-ords Design Inspiration

Inspiration

Coachella festival had just finished and photos of everyone’s outfits were on every prediction forecast website. Looking through images of what each person wore really put me in the festival mood especially since I was going to Manchester’s Parklife! There were lots of tropical, fruity and conversational prints on co-ords, shorts and playsuits which looked really fun. I also loved the little lace trims that kept popping up on people’s outfits. These images gave me the inspiration to design a co-ord set in a cool pineapple print which features eyelash lace detail on the sides of the shorts.

Winning Internship Design

Winning the competition!

A week after I emailed my design to Missguided, I got an email from the Marketing team letting me know that I had won! A couple of weeks later they sent me photos of my outfit and now it is online ready to sell to the public!! Yesterday was my first day as an intern at Missguided. I love the outfit after trying it on for the first time last night. They both work really well as separates and as a co-ord set. It’ll be perfect to pack for my holiday in two weeks time travelling around Thailand and Cambodia! Now I have to wait and see what the rest of this week as a design intern will bring.
