Even the biggest health nuts are prone to these bad habits, but as we enter 2018 it's time to live your best life yet! There are all of those tiny things we tend to do without even noticing that are seriously diminishing our quality of life. But we can take back control by simply acknowledging them. Here are a few examples of no no's: 


1. Taking your smartphone everywhere: Even the bathroom because you get separation anxiety. We promise the world will not crumble if you don't have access to your phone for a few minutes. 

2. Holding on to grudges. It never helps to hold it in. Excuse the pun. Release your frustration and move on. You have more important things to do. 

3. You avoid confrontation. Just like the previous point, you have to express your issue to another person with regards to finding a solution. Problems don't go away by themselves unless we confront them head-on. 

4. You postpone health checkups. Yes it's boring and you rather spend your free time doing much more exciting things than waiting in line for your GP but early detection can save you. 

5. Binge-watching Friends on Netflix instead of meeting your actual friends. 

6. You rely on social media for a self-esteem boost: Blogger Leandra Medine said it best in a recent interview. "Posting on Instagram constantly is a cry for help. I used to post more often when I felt bad about myself." There's no button for self -esteem it takes time and social media are irrelevant. Instead, re-connect with your close friends and family for the perfect self-care boost!

The New Year comes round so quickly and with that I find myself thinking about spring... and oh how far away it is. The New Year seems to have thrown us further into the depths of winter. I find myself wanting to hibernate further into my coat. On the plus side perhaps that's reason enough to buy a new coat? I've been searching for a puffer jacket throughout winter and am yet to find my perfect match - a pastel pink perhaps? But there truly are so many out there from the reliable North Face to fast fashion ASOS. Image: Elle.com

Capes are still the focus of this Fall/Winter. Choose the fabric for you, my favorite mine is wool to wrap myself in the cold weather! #cape #jacket #streetstyle

This week Shopcade profiles Giorgina Clavarino, the influencer with the very poignant blog name entitled “Giorgina With an Eye”. The former Business school student talks to us about her dream closet, her collab with the playful Mira Mikati brand as she takes us through her morning routine and the elements that define her eclectic sense of personal style.


What compelled you to start a blog? I’m a hyperactive person, so unless I have 100 things to do I am not satisfied with what I have accomplished at the end of the day. The search for new challenges is what made me start my Fashion blog. In 2014, I was finishing my studies at Cass Business School in London and had lots of spare time, so I decided I would actively fill it up with something I was passionate about. I knew my studies at Cass were important because I’ve always dreamed of starting a business of my own one day. I also missed being more creative and having an outlet where I could just share what I loved, which is what my blog became. I had been following The Sartorialist for quite some time, and I loved how he shared photographs of street style in NY and loved how inspirational it was. I think this is what gave me the inspiration and the courage to test myself by starting a blog of my own, to share what I loved too!
#222222">
#222222">What's your relationship with fashion? How did it start and what motivates you to keep at it? I grew up in Milan, so fashion flows in everyone’s blood there. When you grow up in a city which is one of the world’s fashion capitals, you are indoctrinated with fashion from a young age. This probably explains why I was so into fashion since I was about 5. There is always the expectation to be flawless and up to speed with trends all the time. #222222">I think that the person that influenced my style the most however, has been my mother. She has always been a bit of a hippie, which is why since I was 10 I’ve loved wearing Minnetonka, boot cut jeans and have messy beachy hair. #222222">I remember my mother always used to buy stacks of magazines we would flick through together and rip off everything we loved and then make huge collages that I still have hanging in my bedroom in Milan. This then led to me creating my own scrap books, which I considered to be my own bespoke ‘Vogue’ editions, that my friends loved flicking through. The blog was then the evolution #222222">of the scrap book – a virtual version that I could share with more people. What keeps me going is my love for fashion. I know it sounds cheesy but it’s the truth. The creativity, the work, the influences that go behind the fashion industry, the way that you brand your products, the packaging, how you photograph it, the visions of the designers, the styling of the stylists, all the processes from beginning to end inspire me daily and are what motivates me to turn on my blog for a couple of hours a day and write something personal that made me think, laugh, smile, inspired that I want to share with other people. 
#222222">
#222222">How would you define your personal style? Do you have any icons people accounts that you follow? When I moved to London my style changed a lot. I love Italian style, but it’s often too timeless and never too daring. Exactly the opposite of what I am, I always love wearing flamboyant clothes, whether it’s wearing a funky hat, a colourful pair of trousers, glittery shoes, or socks. In London you are more liberal, you can experiment with styles and are constantly influenced by different street styles, which in fact are my major influence. I love what people are wearing in the streets, I look at photographs and often attempt to recreate with my twist on what they are wearing. I love doing lots of stuff myself too, whether #222222">its dissembling an old pair of Levi’s, or sewing things onto jackets, designing my own jewellery. My other influences are Frida Kahlo, because I loved how colourful and exuberant her style was. She wasn’t afraid of being different, or better, of being herself. Jane Birkin, as she taught me how to look effortlessly cool with a simple pair of jeans and blouse. Kate Moss, because she always risked and wore the sickest clothes, from leather pants to colourful coats. And finally, to be more contemporary, #222222">I love ‘The Man Repeller’ and Leandra Medine. It’s an account I closely follow on Instagram, as I love how she combines clothes and never takes herself too seriously.
#222222">
#222222">What do you enjoy most about mixing and matching high street with high-end clothing?Proving that style goes beyond the brands you are wearing.  
#222222">
#222222">How did the collab with Mira Mikati come about in Winter Wonderland? What are your favourite items from the latest collection and how would you style them? When I saw the collection I immediately imagined them to be captured in Winter Wonderland. Her clothes are so colourful that I wanted to put them in a fun and #222222">cool environment, that I could camouflage myself in. Every piece of Mira Mikati is very exuberant and colourful, so I would style them as I did on Instagram, with a simple pair of jeans to make the coats and jumpers stand out. I love colours in winter, but you must find a balance, so that the focus goes on the hero piece you are wearing e.g. the faux rainbow coat, or a yellow coat. 
#222222">
#222222">Can you give us 3 styling rules that you abide by? 
#222222">
#222222">1. Mom jeans 

2. A pair of ‘70s converse that will go with almost everything 

3. A lipstick that lifts every outfit 
#222222">
#222222">Whose closet would you raid if you had the chance? Probably Leandra Medine. 
#222222">
#222222">What's the biggest misconception about having your own blog? That it’s easy! 
#222222">
#222222">What's your morning routine? I never wear lots of make-up, as I am too lazy and always too late to spend too much time on it. When I wake up though I always wash my face with Clinique Anti-Blemish Solution face wash, then clean my face with Kiehl’s Cucumber Herbal Toner and apply Clinique Anti-Blemish hydrant visage. I then add a very thin layer of Light Wonder by Charlotte Tilbury to give that fresh glow for the day and a bit of waterproof mascara by Eyeko. To finish I spray a bit of Twilly d’Hermes to be perfumed all day. I usually then have breakfast at work, which is either salmon on toast and a cappuccino or bread and Nutella. Life is too short to eat healthy all the time, especially in the mornings! 
#222222">
#222222">What projects are you working on now? Big projects are still TBC! So stay tuned to discover more in 2018!

Christmas is the time to get cosy and for me this extends to the home. I don't just enjoy dressing myself in sequins and velvet but my bedroom is covered in fairy lights, festive scented candles, anything really that sparkles. I love this home look by Anthropologie (image from their Instagram @antropologieeu). This is totally snug from the furry stockings to the festive garland and golden trees. I also love the touch of fairy lights in the fire place. This is a great way to get around have a closed fireplace. Fairy lights or candles decorate the the space warmly and aptly. A perfect Christmas setting.

Emphasis on the faux please! A faux fur stole s both very affordable and it instantly gives you the Hollywood vibe. I was walking around the stores recently and saw that in almost every store I went to there was a colourful faux fur stole. I’m guessing this is the trendiest winter accessory. I couldn’t help myself but do an impulse buying on faux fur stoles. What can I do? I’m a fashion addict! Yet, affordable pieces are just everyones favourite. And this purchase can do more to an outfit than you can imagine. I wore a simple coat with the white and black colour block faux fur stole that I bought and I looked ultra-luxe in seconds. Give this trend a try, I’m sure after your first buy you will want to get all colours that are out there! #fauxfur #stole #fauxfurstole #accessories #winter #fashion #trend #streetstyle #shopping #fashionaddict #shopaholic

Temperly London designs the most beautiful, vibrant pieces. I love this catwalk look for s/s18; how to do sequins in summer. At this time of year I love to adorn myself in sequins but as the days grow longer and I switch my mulled wine for Pimms I would rarely think about sequins. Temperly London proves that we can still sparkle in summer. The autumnal tones are traded for pastels and a heavy boot a sandal. The new way to shine in summer. Image: Instagram @temperlylondon

After much debate with myself, a lot of #Shopcade and #Pinterest searching and scrolling #BeautyBay for the perfect #Morphe palette I decided to dress up as a unicorn for Halloween. This was such a fun look to create. I worked purples and pinks into the crease of my eyes before highlighting the lid with a pigmented gold. A slick of black liner and some #Eyelure lashes and my unicorn eyes were complete. I then contoured my face with deep purple blended with pink and of course covered my face in glitter. Isn't that what all unicorns do? I would love another excuse to try this with different colours. There is no wrong way with fancy dress make up and the more colour (and glitter) the better.

Fashion week peaks over Saturday and Sunday and we all get consumed by the mania. Over the weekend, myself and the French Shopcade Editor went to a whopping 20 shows/presentations. Running from BFC to Freemasons hall, we navigated our way through the protests- PETA were campaigning outside the venues on both days.

On Saturday our favourite shows were Ashley Isham, which always gives us serious Club Tropicana vibes and Han Wen, where the 80s punk vibes caught our eye. 

On Sunday the highlights included Jamie We Huang (swoon over those shoes). Pam Hogg, like every season, stole the show- Fearne Cotton and Alice Dellal walked, and accompanied the designer for the finale, where they scattered rose petals on the audience. Then, in a quick dash across London, we went to the David Koma show. It couldn't have been more different from Pam Hogg, but was equally as breathtaking. You know it's going to be a good collection when Olivia Palermo sits FROW.  

Scroll the gallery above to see our fave moments, and make sure to keep up with us on social media for more insights...

Valentine's Day can be shit. We've all been there- single, sad and drunk. But these stories courtesy of Reddit (of course) really make your bad V-day look like a walk in the park...


1. "I'm single. On Valentine's day this year I treated myself to a new vibrator and got a bad UTI from using it. Last year my date turned down a blow job mid-blow job and told me he wanted to be friends" - happy_valentines_day 

2. "Last Valentine's Day, my husband told me he had never loved me. It was the day that started our separation. On his way home back to another state, he stopped by and saw his ex" - kb13733

3. "Mine is from three years ago when my then boyfriend had to run into his house to get something after we were done with dinner, and I thought he was getting me something nice like chocolate or a stuffed animal...and he ended up coming out with some acne medication that he thought would help me. I said, "I don't think this is the right day to give me this..." - thehappyhaps 

4. "I was married 2/14/87. I was served divorce papers 2/14/2010. Fuck Valentines day forever man" - JenBubbie

5. "I brought myself flowers because I knew my BF at the time wouldn't do it. Instead of thinking 'I should try not to be a douchebag all the time and maybe be a little more romantic', he got mad at me wanting flowers in the first place". - waddupcheese

6. "So here I am, a 20 year old socially awkward swede with barely any experience with girls. However, for some strange reason yesterday (13th) I grew the balls to ask a girl out for Valentines. Not only did she say yes, she ended up going home with me and spent the night. This is where the story begins...See, some of you redditors believe you are socially awkward, allow me to laugh. The first time I share my bed with a girl, I end up dreaming about going to the bathroom to pee. "What's this warm sensation?" I ask myself. "My waist is so warm!". Suddenly wake up from girl shouting and yelling....Oh god, I had PEED MY FUCKING BED. I'M TWENTY YEARS OLD AND I JUST WET MY BED. please allow me to die". - sociallyawkwardvikin 


So, there you have it. Have these made you feel better about yourself?

W Mag's new shoot, entitled 'Salute To 5 Powerful Women' includes JLO, Donatella Versace, Kate Moss, Taraji P. Henson and Jessica Chastain. And it's everything. See the incredible images above and read below for the interview highlights... 


JLO: Women Get More Confident As They Get Older 

"I have no patience for anything that's not real, just no bulls*t"

"I think living and pushing outside your comfort zone is the only way to be happy, ultimately."

"I've gotten comfortable knowing what I am good at, and how to do it" 

"Men in their 20s are very confident and cocky, and women are super insecure. And then it flips: men get super insecure, and women get comfortable in their own skin, in a way that makes them more beautiful....I just appreciate myself in a way I didn't when I was that age. And it's not about perfection. I like the scars I have". 

Kate Moss is Proudly Naked at 42 

"From the beginning, photographers always got me to take my clothes off, even though I don't like my body at all. I just had to get comfortable with being naked". 

"Fashion can be cutthroat, but we love it" "I want to please the person behind the camera. I'm a hard worker. And I like the process of creating an image". 

Taraji On Success in Her Forties 

"It's supposed to be over for me at 46, but here I am. I'm a late bloomer, and I'm okay with that. Know why? Late bloomers last loooong" 

"Growing up, math and science was for boys. I wasn't allowed to have that dream. I don't want another little girl believing she can't be a rocket scientist. Fuck that!" 

Donatella On the Power of Fashion 

"The power to keep on going forward. I have to succeed in showing women that we can do more, that we are stronger than men." 

"I cast different models on my catwalk because there is not just one kind of woman. You can't make a revolution for just one woman!" 

Jessica Chastain is the Heroine Women Deserve

"In our society, women are valued for their sexual attraction. I'd like to get away from the sex symbol idea of what beauty is. Actually, that's probably the farthest thing form beauty, because it's makeup and hair, it's pouty lips- it's not real" 

"We're not supposed to be ambitious, we're not supposed to be 'over prepared'"
