GET THE LOOK: THE CHOKER TREND

A photo posted by ✘υè ⚯͛ (@grumpymeg) on


The choker trend has been going quite strong for some time now. And it shows no signs of slowing down! At Colette by Colette Hayman, we can’t get enough of the 90s fashion staple. We can thank Drew Barrymore and Sarah Michelle Gellar for those 90s vibes!

Now with our current IT girls resurfacing the trend with a much-needed update (think Kendall Jenner, Hailey Baldwin, Gigi & Bella Hadid), the choker is now one of the most popular and easiest way to upgrade your style.

Unsure how to rock the trend? For casual looks, opt for leather-look, velvet or suede styles and simply pair with a denim jacket and a summer dress. For your evening look, opt for more embellished styles with diamantes to pair with literally any party dress. If you want to take it to the next level, you can even layer your chokers with other jewel to toughen up a feminine look.

Still unsure? We’ve made it super easy for you by showing you how the celebs rock the trend below. Style like a pro and get the look now xx

5 MINS WITH ASHLEY MAREE BEAUTY

Recently, we got the chance to chat with beauty and style blogger, Ashley Maree Beauty! Check out the low down below.

1. What are your top trends for summer?
My top trends for summer accessory-wise are cute dangly earrings, oversized sunnies, layering chokers, backpacks and mini bags. If I’m going out, a clutch is my number one necessity. Coming into summer, my favourite colours (besides the obvious lust for rose gold) are pastels.

My favourite summer makeup look is definitely dewy, bronze skin with copious amounts of highlighter. I do struggle with the natural makeup look which is supposedly a summer staple so I’d pair it up with some big lashes.

2. What is your ultimate dream bag?
This is a very hard question! Probably a mini bag in a blush pink with rose gold hardware, fine detailing and also a fluffy pom-pom. I’m obsessed with attaching them to my pouches and bags right now.

 3. Tell us about your Rose Gold Appreciation group!
Well my friend Emily (@themakeupgrub on Instagram) and I came up with a group called the “Rose Gold Addict Support Group” because we both had a mutual love for rose-gold décor, accessories and so forth. We thought this was a great way to share our cute finds with fellow addicts, which sounded like a good idea in reality but not really for our wallets. It was then decided we called the group “Marble and Rose Gold Addict Support Group” as a lot of us also adore the marble design.

4. What would you love to see more at Colette?
I would love to see maybe some rose gold and marble trinket trays, magnetic travel palettes for makeup, makeup brushes and LOTS of cute iPhone 7 Plus cases. I am also currently LOVING mini bags – I’ll take one in every colour please.

5. You can only pick one – rose gold or marble?
Oh my gosh, so difficult! It would have to be rose gold as I’m a magpie at heart. Give me something shiny and I’ll be happy.

Right now, Ashley Maree is running a Colette by Colette Hayman rose gold give away competition. To enter, check out her Instagram @ashleymareebeauty and you could win!

HOW TO KRIS KRINGLE 101

A photo posted by (@hellomandyb) on

Are you looking for new ideas to spice up a gift exchange at your office, with friends or even your annual Christmas lunch? We thought so!

If you are making your lists and checking them twice you will know its time for Kris Kringle aka Secret Santa time. The trick to perfecting Kris Kringle is to lay down a few ground rules to avoid any awkward gift swapping and that everyone has a merry time!

Here are our hot tips to make sure Kris Kringle goes smoothly:

1. Gather the troops! Ensure all employees are on board and get everyone hyped for the end of year festivities (this includes Christmas Carol jams in the office HQ, who doesn’t love a bit of Mariah Carey?!)

2. Set an amount and stick to it! Christmas is the time of giving for most of the world so ensure a cap is done to keep the game fair and people won’t feel uncomfortable about giving or receiving.

3. Make it mindful! Think of something practical instead of jokey! If all else fails there is nothing better than a new desk gadget or some cool stationary! Even a novelty mug, everyone needs one to have their daily tea or coffee in.

See below a few products that’ll add excitement to the traditional Kris Kringle game this year.
