We had just about adjusted to the New Year and somehow it is already the end of February! How does that happen? At this time of year, it is easy to feel a little lacking in inspiration.
Katie Ecclestone from Intu has been in touch and has compiled a hit list of Springtime favourites to inspire you. From the ultra stylish L.A. siblings inspiring #LifeGoals, to all the ways they are staying mindful and motivated in 2016, read on to discover the 4 things that Katie & Intu are loving this Spring.
4 Springtime Favourites from Intu
London Fashion Week
How can we not love London Fashion Week? Once again it’s made us proud to be British and live in a city so rich with talent. What’s cropped up on our radar so far? We adored the slept-in sparkles in the smokey eyes with a smatter of gold glitter seen at Burberry and Alexander McQueen. It goes oh too perfectly with the lived-in, ornately adorned party hair we saw too. Consider us sold! We’re also big fans of Topshop Unique. Not only do we love getting a sneak-peak at what we’ll be lusting after next season, but the FROW is so celeb-packed it’s worth live streaming the show for that alone! Read the trends we’ll be wearing this SS16 and feel inspired.
The Streicher Sisters on Instagram
We’re currently enduring a serious case of life envy from not one beautiful lady, but three! Based in Los Angeles, the Streicher sisters are a triple threat of brains and beauty, who own a glamorous Beverly Hills salon and count a fistful of A-list celebs as loyal clients. Ashley Streicher is a hair stylist who’s worked with Emily Blunt and Mandy Moore (to name a few!), Jenn Streicher is an award-winning makeup artist and Kristie Streicher is the eyebrow queen. She invented a signature ‘Feathered brow’ and is responsible for Adele’s signature 25 album look – an ultra contemporary look we’re planning on copying from now on! If you’re not following the Streicher Sisters on instagram, you should be!
The Ultimate 2016 Hairspiration
Much like seemingly every other woman in the world, we’re a little obsessed with the ‘Lob’. Now sported by nearly all our celebrity faves, from Jennifer Lawrence to Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, we’re officially proclaiming it the 21st century version of ‘the Rachel’. The Lob, in case you’re unsure, is the long bob and it’s THE cut of the moment. Thinking of taking the plunge? Ask for a cut that finishes somewhere around your shoulders with long, choppy layers to add texture. Or if you’re still searching for ‘the one’, why not check out this roundup of 2016’s hottest hair trends for some inspiration?
A Mind & Body Makeover
What better time than Spring for a bit of a refresh? We’re all about trying to better ourselves. Right now, we’re reading books that’ll empower and learning practical tips to deal with stress – an apparently very modern problem that comedian and author Ruby Wax says requires a very human, practical solution. Plus, to ensure we’re fully rounded and exercising our bodies as well as our minds, we’re taking a look at the top five fitness events to conquer in 2016. See you at the starting line!
