The sun has arrived, and a new light is cast into our homes, calling for a fresh look at our interiors.

Last year I had an Australian landlord. He was laid back, always asking me 'how're you going?' and never concerned about anything but the Ashes. Caslazur has the same vibe; her girl is cool and calm. She turns heads, not because she looks a million dollars, but because her clothes have it all worked out.

WTF?! It's made from 100% Polyester - something I thought was easily washable?! If I'm paying £550 for for an item of clothing, surely a basic requirement is that it's able to be cleaned so it can be worn again?!

That new berry coloured jumper and leather bomber jacket you've just bought, didn't end up on the high street by accident. Both trends were planned out by trend forecasters years ago and wowed on the catwalks back at the start of this year.

I'm on the 1 train in NYC, I literally can't move, the train is taking what feels like forever and the AC isn't working again. It's a good job I'm 6ft 3 and have my own air up here - New York Fashion Week has begun and I'm going to be a part of it.
