If you’re anything like us, you’ve been won over by the new series that everybody seems to be talking about – Glee! We’d never really thought of ourselves as the kind of people who’d enjoy a programme that is predominantly about high school kids singing and dancing, but it has become a guilty pleasure that we look forward to every week.
Focusing on a group of misfits hoping to enter the Glee nationals, this show has fast become a viewers’ favourite. The characters all have their own endearing quirkiness’; some could even be described as crazy. And with enough love triangles to make your head spin, you fall in love with a different character every week.
But don’t be fooled into thinking it’s another ‘High School Musical’ – far from it. The show is big on plot, rather than just singing, the musical aspect just adds a little something extra to this already brilliant series.
The cast have even managed to score themselves a number one with Don’t Stop Believin’, as well as helping Journey’s original version back into the top ten.
Now we may just have to start our own glee club. In the meantime we’ll just stick the soundtrack on and belt the songs out when nobody can hear. If only we had Rachel’s set of lungs…

To me, there isn’t a better accessory than a watch. A person wearing a watch signifies organisation, drive, and most importantly, a keen eye for accessories. After years of lusting after my Dad’s watch and the gorgeous creations over at Chanel, I truly thought no other watch could compare.So whilst browsing through the SWATCH website, I was more than thrilled to see that they’ve released a new collection of watches androgynous enough to suit both men and women, whilst still looking quirky and high fashion.
The collection, an update to their ‘chrono’ watch collection, consists of five new additions - red, purple, green, navy, and my personal favourite, white. The white watch in particular looks the perfect substitute for the sought-after white Chanel watches, adding more of a playful and ‘young’ twist to the idea of a ‘classic’ shape of watch. The overall theme is a bit nautical, a bit 80’s and another part masculine, whilst still being extremely wearable and fun.

Worn piled up on your wrist, or played down for an interview, the Swatch watches add just the right amount of personality to an outfit. I’ll certainly be snapping up a Chrono Swatch Watch!

We've seen dresses made out of some pretty random things before, (I knew a girl once who rocked up to a fancy dress party in an outfit made entirely out of a bin liner.) but William Tempest has made recycled fashion chic again, all with the help of Ms. Moss.
The pair have joined forces all in the name of Sport Relief with William designing a dress for Kate to do what she does best - that's model in case you had forgotten.
The dress itself however is not your average designer frock. The beautiful creation has been crafted from mosquito nets! The young fashion designer hopes to raise awareness of the dangers and prevention of malaria in Africa and that the simple purchase of a mosquito net can make all the difference.
“I was shocked to hear that one child dies from malaria in Africa every 30 seconds, that’s why I was happy to be involved in this important project for Sport Relief.” Kate explains, “William Tempest’s dress, which incorporates recycled malaria nets is absolutely gorgeous, I loved wearing it and working with William.”
There's even a chance to get your hands on this fabulous dress, as it will be auctioned off at a later date to raise money for the charity. Visit sportrelief.com for more info

It seems the question is no longer Team Edward or Team Jacob, there’s a new love triangle in town. Barbie’s got herself a new love interest in Darren, a new rival for Barbie’s long time beau Ken.
And Darren may just have the edge on Ken. Decked in an outfit chosen especially for him by Jay-Z from Rocawear, he has a “cool” British accent due to him being exclusive to Selfridges throughout the whole of March. Apparently he’s great at sports and geography too!
Much as we’d hate to break Ken and Barbie up, we think Darren’s pretty cool!
Get to Selfridges to buy yours before they all sell out (don’t pretend you don’t want to!).
