I was looking for the sleek style that I had in mind and thought that tan and black are a pretty classic look, definitely something that was worth giving a go. I added my Emilio Luca shoes from Brantano , also in tan, and carried my Lulu Guinness... This is a look that I've been wearing a lot recently as it can take me from day to night with ease and looks great whether I'm going for drinks with the girls, for supper with my man or popping to a meeting through the day.

It was now time for the talk. I booked to go see Tanya Burr speak who is a beauty, fashion, lifestyle YouTuber/blogger and also the cover girl for the December issue of Glamour Magazine. It was so interesting to hear her speak about her success and accomplishments in the beauty industry and it was very inspiring. If you haven’t already, make sure you check out her YouTube channel and blog. It was 4pm by the time I left the talk so I decided it was time for me to explore the ground floor. I chose to go for the smoky eye and the lovely makeup artist even showed me how to get the look myself.

The pop star says that the song's music video was like "rocket fuel" for its chart success. Dua Lipa’s music video for “New Rules” is singular among pop visuals this year, both ambitious in execution and immediately understandable in its base emotion. It’s also one of the biggest reasons that the song is now in the top 40 of the Billboard Hot 100 chart.Filmed in Miami and set at a hotel cheekily named The Confidante, the “New Rules” video begins in earnest with a close-up of the pop star...
