WOWOWOWOOWOWOW. I AM IN AWE. I loveeeee both of these outfits. The styling, hair, make-up (FYI, blood red lips are my current fave) to the gold sandals. Words cannot describe how much I LOVE Rita Ora's outfits at this year's MOBO Awards, held in Liverpool.

Two very different looks but both as amazing as each other. I want to know who her stylist is and I want to work with them NOW!

A/W 2012 McQ by Alexander McQueen floral dress

I have been staring incessantly at these photographs to get some inspiration for my upcoming Christmas parties, but let's face it I'll never look as good as the Ora here!

What do you think of Rita's look?

"It's vintage...from the 80s"

Any avid followers of my blog and Twitter may have noticed I made a recent TV appearance on The Graham Norton Show...IN THE RED CHAIR. Gulp.

After applying for the show after a dare from my friend at work, I thought 'Oh I'll never get picked' lo and behold I get a call from the Producer on the Saturday asking me and my friends to come down the next day. I get there and after getting in to the studio, had to tell my story in front of the 7 other red chair candidates. After hearing the variety of stories, I confirmed to myself that I wouldn't be selected and to just enjoy the show. OH HOW I WAS WRONG.

I was chosen and was a bag of nerves (as you can see by clicking here). On the upside a fair amount of airtime was spent on my outfit - namely my 'Quality Street' vintage jacket from a shop in Glasgow, along with my black H&M dress, chiffon Zara top and chunky Miss Selfridge gem bracelet. Not to mention my staple flowers in my hair, Russian Red MAC lippy and re-dyed red hair.

It was a lot of fun and I found Graham Norton to be as friendly as he appears on TV. Hope you  all enjoy reveling in my sheer embarrassment, which FYI was in front of Daniel, Craig, Judi Dench, Javier Bardem and of Monsters and Men - EEK!

Chatting to Graham


Oh Daniel Craig is watching me. Hope I'm looking good!

Off I go - WHOOSH!

Happy Friday!
