SAG awards: Top 5 best dressed...and the ultimate fashion fail

5.Viola Davis

4.Rose Byrne


3. Michelle Williams 


2. Ashlee Simpson


1. Emma Stone

And the ultimate fashion fail...
Zoe Saldana

I just didn't like it. I really didn't. It's awful. Everyone seems to be giving this dress positive reviews which I find, quite frankly, shocking. IT LOOKS LIKE SHE'S WEARING A VEST TOP AND PONCHO FOR GOODNESS SAKE! This is hard for me to write, because I LOVE Zoe, everyone who knows me will tell you I go to see every one of her films. However, this doesn't cut it for me. I'm saying this, because I know she can do 10x better. Knock it out of the park next time Zoe!

Item of the day

River Island black stripe ponte jacket-£45

I love this jacket, it's quite ironic actually because my sister was just telling that she wanted a black striped blazer. I guess now i'll see if she really does read my blog! However,what I love the most about this jacket is the fact that it reminds me of the Jacket Ri-ri wore in the what's my name video. LUSH!

Get the Look: Rihanna

Last night Rihanna was snapped at the premier of "The Immortal World Tour" in a super cool biker chick ensemble. I loved it, especially with the red lipstick and the retro sunglasses...sigh, oh to have Rihanna's wardrobe...
 You know the deal, here's how to get a similar look for less.

FTFB has a new look!!!!!!!!!

Hi guys!

I've decided to update the design of my blog! Don't get me wrong Dynamic Views was terrific, but it didn't let me add any widgets and thus I decided it was time for a change. I hope you like the look, it's still the same blog only hopefully 100x better.

Happy reading,


Thoughts: Geek charming, surprisingly good!

Yesterday Geek Charming had its first showing in the UK, and I must say it was pretty awesome! I don't normally watch Disney channel films but after finding out Sarah Hyland (love her in Modern Family) was starring, I decided to give this one a go. The storyline was predictable, but heart warming and the fashion was surprisingly good. Sarah wardrobe was filled with bright colours and eye catching accessories, here are a few of my favourite looks!

Sasha Pieterse (that's Alison to all us PLL fans) also made an appearance as a "wannabe-rocker pink-streaked ex-best friend" character. She was nice in this, although I couldn't quite shake the memory of Ally.

Matt Prokop (Hyland's real life bf) also stars in this and gets a makeover that leaves him resembling Joe McElderry.

Oh, and did anyone notice Hyland's legs in this film? they were super skinny...and this is coming from someone who has skinny legs also. These were extreme. 

Nevertheless, I loved the film. Watch it if,like me, you have nothing better to do on a Friday night.

My top five all time favourite Disney songs!!

I'll admit I was feeling pretty nostalgic today, and had the urge to listen to all of my favourite Disney songs -you know the old stuff not the new rubbish that's spewed on our TV screens today. I'm 18 and i'm not afraid to admit that I shed a few tears when listening to some of these, they were literally my childhood I was obsessed with them when I was younger. So here are my top five picks, have a listen yourself! Oh, and let me know what your favourite Disney songs are!

5.  Aladdin a whole new world. 
This is a classic, and the carpet ride has to be the most romantic thing ever. Rest assured that this has been sung awfully in many a school audition

4. Mulan- I'll make a man out of you
LOVE, LOVE,LOVE this song!!! It's so uplifting and cheerful, the film is one of my all time favourites.

3.The Lion King- Hakuna matata
Lovely, and super funny- an absolute classic.

2. Mulan- Reflection
What can I say, this song is so amazing words cannot describe it's profoundness. The lyrics, the video, the message...perfection.

1. Pocahontas- Colours of the wind   
My absolute all time favourite song. I always shed a tear when I listen to this.

Top 5 "Newbie" Designers making waves on the red carpet

 Celebs will always be wearing the typical designers that we all know and love (Prada and Dior to name a few of my personal favs) however, this year a few new designers proved to be popular amongst the A Listers. Here are my top five...







Item of the day

ASOS-Spirithood Red Wolf Hood £99.00
It seems like everyone's wearing spirit hoods these days.I'll be honest, when I first saw them I wasn't too convinced and thought it was one of those typical "crazy" trends that always seem to pop up in London. However it's really grown on me, their cute and super warm definitely a must for this bi-polar English weather. 
On a side note...don't you think the model in this pick looks like jade from BNTM?  Glad to see her working!

Get the Look: Zooey Deschanel


It's official! Zooey Deschanel is my new girl crush! I love her kooky personality and her girl-next door sense of style, here's how you can create her look yourself!



H and M black and white blouse- £14.99
Miss Selfridge Navy button detail shorts- £30
Primark Black tights-£2.50 for a pack of three
River Island Black print cross body bag- £45
Debenhams black satin bow pumps- £15


Even Zooey has admitted she's "bangs and eyes" so if you really want to pull of the zooey look, make sure you have the signature bangs (that's fringe to us brits) to match.  For the extra volume try using Got2b Powder'ful Volumizing styling powder (£3 from tescos) and add the trusty coconut oil for that extra shine. 

Make up 

Now I'm no makeup guru, but this girl on youtube is pretty good. Follow her tips for that ultimate Zooey look!
