NYC born, Carolyn Compres is the author and Founder the C Statement and a contributor to Taste The Style. She's a Fashion Merchandising student, wife and mama of two who feeds on chocolate and vino. She's an amazing example of a young mum with an exquisite sense of style and our Influencer Focus this week! We caught up with Carolyn and talked about current go-to items, her personal style and all that behind-the-scenes-work that goes in maintaining a blog today.


What compelled you to start a blog?#500050"> 

I had always wanted to do it but it wasn’t until I gave birth to my first daughter and had to spend a lot of my time at home that I did it. I didn’t feel like I could be at an office from 9-5 because my daughter was too young and I just couldn’t do leave her (first baby problems). Doing this really made me think of things I could do from home and that I was still passionate about, and it occurred to me that I had always wanted to blog. I had a lot of fears, especially the fear of being judged but I got passed them and did it. I am extremely glad I did because I couldn’t be happier with what I have accomplished in a year.#500050"> 

What's your relationship with fashion? How did it start and what motivates you to keep at it?

Ever since I was a little girl I was extremely passionate about dressing up. I guess it started by seeing my mom and looking at her dress up, it just made me really interested in fashion. I used to collect Vogue Magazines back when I lived in the Dominican Republic and I knew I wanted to dress like those people I saw on the magazines. It’s not hard to keep motivated at it because I feel it comes naturally but sometimes I get a ‘fashion block’ just like writers do and that’s when it becomes a little harder.#500050"> 

How would you define your personal style? Do you have any icons people accounts that you follow?#500050"> 

I don’t have a definition for my personal style. I would like to think I am a chameleon, I am willing to try anything at all and I guess that what makes my style. When it comes to inspiration, my biggest inspiration is everyone and everything I see on the streets of NY. Instagram accounts that inspire me are @alwaysjudging and @mirandamakaroff. Both very different styles, but they inspire me in so many ways on a daily basis.#500050"> 

What do you enjoy most about mixing and matching high street with high end clothing i.e. from YOOX?#500050"> 

To me, it has always been about the clothing. It doesn’t matter what brands I am shopping or how much does it cost, all that matters is that I like it and I think that’s what I love about it. Using clothes that you are genuinely proud of wearing and not because someone is paying you or because it is socially acceptable to wear it.#500050"> 

Can you give us 3 styling rules that you abide by?#500050"> 

I don’t think there are any rules in fashion and that’s what I love about it. You should wear whatever you feel like wearing and forget about the rules.#500050"> 

What are your current go-to items when getting ready in the morning?#500050"> 

My current go-to items in the morning are my white Mango boots, my Gucci belt, and my Tory Burch sweater (Its freezing in NY).#500050"> 

What's the biggest misconception about having your own blog?#500050"> 

I think the biggest misconception about having a blog is that you need to wear certain items, or that you need to follow certain rules. Be yourself, be confident, and don’t give a shit about what others think.#500050"> 

What's your morning routine? (makeup beauty styling breakfast)#500050"> 

I love skin care, and it’s something I want to talk a lot more about with my audience. Although it might sound vain, but your face is so important because everything you do with it people will see. There is no covering up, although makeup helps it isn’t magic. That’s why having a good beauty routine is important, I am still learning about my face therefor not claiming to know anything about it but the most important thing about my morning routine is my skincare routine, I wash my face with Avène : Cleanance Gel, then I tone with Caudalie: Beauty Elixir, then I essence with SK-II: Facial Treatment Essence, then I use a serum from the Glossier 3 pack and then moisturize with Avène: Cleanance Expert, and finish with Milk Makeup’s: Cooling Water for under eye puffiness and  Sunshine Skin Tint which contains both SPF and a little bit of preservative free foundation. I am not a breakfast person but I always have a Starbucks Grande Nonfat Capuccino to go!

What projects are you working on now?#500050"> 

There are many exciting projects on the works. A lot of brand collaborations coming at the end of the month and then there are other personal projects I am little too superstitious to tell just yet.

There's nothing like sharing your life with a special someone but there's even more to celebrate when you have your fabulousness only to rely on to survive and also have fun. On the other spectrum of Valentine's day, validating couples and co-dependency across the globe Single's Day is all about truly embracing your individuality, and pampering yourself. 


So whether you're in a relationship or not take the time tomorrow (it's a Saturday after all) to dedicated time for yours truly. Schedule a yoga lesson, read your favourite book, light some candles and do a DIY facial and beauty routine. Go for a long walk, or spend the day at a spa. At the end of the day make a note on all the things that made you especially happy and maybe consider dedicating a specific part of your week, day or month to indulge in those activities that make you happy. 

Head to our gallery for more inspiration and shop all the DIY wellness routine essentials from our exclusive edit below!

Happy Friday! We introduce you to a new instalment at Shopcade. Every week we will present an influencer, content creator or fashion muse that we find inspiring. #222222">This week we sat down with blogger and creator of Hues of White, Santina Harisson to talk about creating a blog in 2017, inspiration, morning routines and how to style denim! 

#222222">
#222222">What compelled you to start a blog? 

I founded huesofwhite.com in October 2016 as a way to express my love of Art, Beauty, Fashion and Lifestyle. You will find chronicles of my daily musings and personal styling on huesofwhite.com. I also want to make people feel beautiful, confident in what they are wearing and inspire my readers through visual content and affordable clothing. My blog for me, represents who I am, a colourful, fun, likes to try anything kind of girl! 
#222222">
#222222">What's your relationship with fashion? How did it start and what motivates you to keep at it? 

I’ve always admired fashion from a young age and use to really enjoy trying on my mum’s vintage clothing and putting a little of her Chanel red lipstick on and thinking just how much I loved clothes! As I’ve always been interested in fashion and interior, I wanted to create an outlet where I could express my love for this industry. So whilst talking to my friend in PR early last year, the concept of Hues of White came about and I haven’t looked back since! 
#222222">
#222222">How would you define your personal style? Do you have any icons people accounts that you follow?

My personal style is always evolving and the older I’m getting the better my decisions! I love to admire street styles and take note from these kind of girls. For me styling is all about working with what you currently have in your wardrobe whilst pushing yourself out of your comfort zone. My icons for inspiration are Lucy Williams, Aimee Song and Alexandra Spencer (she’s created the eclectic brand Realisation Par). Three different styles, three different takes on fashion but they wear things that identify to their personality! 

You have an affinity for denim. What makes it special? And what do you look for in a quality denim purchase? 

It’s no secret that I am a super huge fan of denim and they form an important piece to my wardrobe - I basically live in them if I’m honest! But what I think makes denim so special is that you can constantly find new ways to wear them. They are super versatile so I can wear the same pair in the day for a casual relaxed look and then completely transform them for an evening look, like these PAIGE jeans I am wearing from TRILOGY store, in London. I genuinely haven’t been able to take them off! The straight cut with raw hem is perfect for the AW17 trend and the quality of these are super sturdy so they don’t lose their fit. Which for me is the most important thing I look for when I purchase any kind of denim. 
#222222">
#222222">Can you give us 3 ways to style denim? 

To me, denim is the perfect base with which to pair anything that shows a little more or pushes you out of your comfort zone.
 

Going to work? Pair your jeans with a railroad-striped blazer and a T-shirt. It’s the perfect outfit equation for starting your day off right like I have here in my Paige Jeans from Trilogy Store. 

For a casual look, try pairing bold accessories like a red scarf or bag, plus a printed top. It’s a sure fire way to make your jeans feel fresh. 

Date Night? Slip on a pair of your statement heels teamed with either your favourite skinny or boyfriend style jeans, a lace top and you’re ready to start the night off right! 
#222222">
#222222">What's the biggest misconception about having your own blog? 

That it’s the easiest job in the world, because it’s far from that- it requires a lot of creative work and hours! 
#222222">
#222222">What's your morning routine like? 

Mornings at home are my favourite, and I love that I get to start the day how I want (it’s the only part of the day where I can slow down and enjoy my time!) My morning ritual normally includes playing a little music to get the day started off positively and I love making my own breakfast which tends to be a super bowl of ACAI in some form, mixed with fruit and granola (which my kids love!) whilst sipping a cup or two of coffee! I don’t wear a lot of makeup, and always try to keep it to a minimum but my morning routine is generally made up of tried-and-true look of natural makeup and gently waved hair and prepping my skin with REN’s gentle cleansing gel and supplement moisturising cream. I can’t live without these and pop them along in my bag wherever I go. 
#222222">
#222222">What projects are you working on now? 

Every time I get approached for a collaboration or get offered a job, I feel like it's a stamp of approval because it means my opinion matters so the products I have been working on mean the world to me. I have just finished working with Trilogy Stores on the perfect pair of Denim Pants for AW17 (here) but I am currently working with DUNE London to show you three ways to wear this season’s hottest boot trend and three ways to dress up sneakers! I am also currently working on something super special with REN and Olivia Rubin. So watch this space!

Love this new feature! And I am obsessed with this outfit

A few days after she appeared on the cover of Vanity Fair proclaiming her love for her beau, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle made their first appearance together an an official event on the royal calendar (although they were forced to sit 18 seats apart due to royal protocol). The event was the opening of the Invictus Games in Toronto, Meghan's hometown. The Games, were created by Prince Harry and have been karmic to their relationship. They met for the first time last year when the royal was doing promotion in Canada. 


The couple, has managed to keep a relatively low profile since they first started dating in July 2016. Later, Harry confirmed their relationship in November 2016, and made a plea to the social media trolls to stop the "wave of abuse and harassment" against Meghan. 

Apart from Prince Harry, her charity work and being part of the very successful Suits cast for a few seasons now, Meghan Markle has an amazing sense of style: smart, eclectic and laid back. She can sport a pair of PVC leggings with a sweater and a white crisp shirt for afternoon drinks. In the daytime, we' ve seen her doing a very cool version of the double denim look, topped with ballerina pointy flats and a very hygge mohair trench coat. She also has a very modern take on business casual by pairing a matching grey blazer and shorts with sexy red pumps and duffle bag. 

For a weekend day out you'll see her in black dungarees over a stripped shirt offset by red pumps while she looked absolutely stunning in a red ethereal long dress for a premiere in LA.

Browse through our gallery for more inspiration and see how you can recreate Meghan Markle's top rated looks below!

These days, most of us sleep with our phones near us but this is really a habit we should get rid of.


Whether it’s because your phone is the last thing you check at night or the first thing you look at in the morning, or because you use it as an alarm or even as a torch when you wake up at night, research suggests you should stop doing so.

The first and obvious reason for this is that receiving messages and phone calls could wake you and disrupt your sleep rhythm, but it turns out that even putting your phone on silent can have negative effects on your sleep.

This is because mobile phones emit blue-light which can hinder the production of melatonin (the sleep-inducing hormone). It is mostly thought that this is happens because blue-light is similar to daylight, which leads our body to think it’s day time and therefore that we shouldn’t be sleeping.

But even if you switch your phone off entirely, excess exposure to the electromagnetic radiation given off by phones might lead to cancers and have negative effects on reproductive systems. The exact relationship is not yet clear, but one’s thing for sure: the more you can avoid exposing yourself to unnecessary radiation, the better!

So try turning your phone off tonight, and make sure you store it away outside your room! Sweet dreams…

Is he 'the one'? What even is 'the one'? Is the idea of having a perfect match, one 'love of your life', 'Mr Right' a little outdated? Well, yes, the Disney version is. Hate to break it to you but you're unlikey to find your soul mate the first time round. You'll kiss (bang) a few frogs, settle for a couple of safe bets and get your heart broken by a love rat, but there is still hope. 


Think of 'the one' as being 'the right one' rather than 'the perfect one'. Because there's no such thing as perfect. You're not a Disney Princess- that sounds harsh, but you ain't. Can you talk to animals, swing down buildings by your hair or heal broken legs with your magic locks? Nah, you can't. And if you could you'd hopefully be a superhero not some princess searching for their prince. So, since you're not a Disney Princess, you're not going to find your Prince Charming. 

The one, in reality, is your best friend who you'd happily spend the rest of your life with- there will be fights, tears and heartbreak, but if they're the one you'll both love and support each other through it all. 

1. You Make Sacrifices For Each Other 

You make sacrifices for one another, and your life together, but never try and change each other. 

2. You Feel Comfortable Planning

The thought of planning a holiday with your last fella filled you with dread, but with this one you're happy to make plans months, christ even years, into the future. 

3. You Share Similar Values 

No, this doesn't mean you have to agree on everything. After all, opposites do attract, but only in regards to personality quirks and passions, not core values. If you don't agree on kids/marriage/politics and other big lifestyle factors, then you won't work out. It's all well and good loving one another, but if one of you sees kids as a deal breaker and the other doesn't then maybe it's time to face the music. 

4. Love Is The Easy Party 

He's the one when you realise that being in love is the easy part, and the rest of having a relationship is the hard part. It's the daily squabbles about washing up, bills and who last cleaned the bathroom that take work, if he's the one then the loving and supporting one another is the easy part, and life is the hard bit. 

5. He's Your Bestie 

You tell him everything, you don't keep secrets, you're not embarrassed to express your feelings and he's the first person you want to tell about your day. Grab onto that kind of love, it'll last a lot longer than the dude with really good abs who doesn't care about that amazing sandwich you ate for lunch.

No-one's perfect, but that's no excuse to be unreasonably jealous. Us girls are out here tryna shake the 'psycho girlfriend' tag, so help the team and reign in your jealous behaviour a little. If you do these 6 things, then you are a jealous girlfriend. And no, not the kind of jealous where it's justified or shows you care, the kind where 'stalker' pops to mind. 


1. You FB Stalk Every Girl He's Dated

...and you stalk them on a regular basis. If you know she went to Paris this weekend, then you've gone way too far. A inquisitive look on your significant other's ex girlfriend's page is normal, not healthy, but normal- to check it daily, and find out even detail about her isn't. There's a reason she's in the past, and that they're not together anymore, so give yourself more credit. 

2. You Check When He's Online

WhatsApp and FB messenger are your BFFs because they tell you when he was last active, and therefore if he's ignoring you. Ok, he shouldn't be avoiding your convos but maybe it's for innocent reasons. Or maybe it's because you're an OTT jealous GF who won't let him live. 

3. You Lie To Make Him Jealous

So in reality the only guy who hit on you today was the homeless dude who hangs around your neighbourhood, but the version you tell him, it may as well have been Brad Pitt's younger, better looking, brother. Or you lie and say your ex has hit you up. He should already know how lucky he is, jealousy isn't the right way to bring that out of him. Would it make you feel lucky if his ex wanted him back? Or would it make you feel insecure and angry? Yeah, thought so. 

4. You Read Into Everything He Does

A friend of mine legitimately uses the 'Find Your Friends' app to stalk her boyfriend's whereabouts. She plans how long his journey home takes to make sure he isn't lying about where he's been. Seriously, not normal or ok. Your other half has a life, and you need to let them live. Imagine how annoying and controlling it would be if someone asked you 100 questions every time you went to the shops.

5. You've Created Fake Profiles 

Please, please, please don't do this. If you don't trust them to this extent then the relationship is never going to work, and you need to call it quits. And work on yourself. Seriously. 

6. You Snoop 

Looked through his phone multiple times? Even rummaged through his trash? Get excited when you get the opportunity to do these things? Then take a long hard look at yourself, because you need a reality check. This is invasion of privacy. This is you ruining the trust, not him.

The green-eyed monster is not a cute look, yes we're all guilty of occasionally getting carried away but if these 6 points are familiar to you, and frequent, then you're an out of control jealous girlfriend. Check yo'self before you wreck yo'self babe.

If you've clicked on this article because you think you might be dating a f*ck boy, then you probably are. But don't worry gal, it's happened to the best of us. Make absolutely sure by seeing which of these 10 tell tale signs your other half is guilty of:


1. He doesn't believe in labels. 

You'll see each other most evenings, you've met his parents and friends but he doesn't call you his girlfriend. Even though you are, apart from you're not. You'll tell yourself he got hurt in a past relationship, or that it's better because there's less pressure and you can just chill. 

No hu-uunny. No. He does this, so that when you see him texting another girl, you can't freak out because you're not technically official or exclusive. Plus, it means he doesn't have to take any responsibility because you "were never officially together". 

2. He is a completely different person with his friends.

Everyone changes their personality slightly depending on who they're around, for instance I try and control my swearing when I'm with the grandparents. But the fella you're dating changes his personality completely. In private he might be sweet, caring and not an absolute douche. Yet when he's with his friends he turns into an idiot. 

Lad culture is not ok, and if he becomes an ignorant arse when around his 'boys', get out. You'll tell yourself that the real him is the one you see in private, but you don't know that. If he has that side to him, then girl, you don't want that in your life. 

3. In public he acts like he barely knows you.

A classic f*ck boy move is to not introduce you to people when you're out together, or call you his "friend". You need a partner who wants to scream your name from the rooftops. 

4. Every single one of his ex's he calls "crazy".

He thinks all his ex girlfriends were psychopaths, and that nothing that happened in his past relationships were his fault. Yet when you meet one of them she seems lovely, or friends of friends vouch that she's sane and just doesn't like being cheated on. They all wronged him in some way, and he acts like the victim. Gal, hate to break it to you, but mathematically they probably weren't all crazy, maybe he is...

5. He has zero ambition. 

He may have a job, but he hates it and blames the world for that fact. It's not his fault that he flunked his degree or hasn't been promoted- no it's the evil, cruel world that's victimising him. 

6. He is obsessed with how many people you've slept with.

He brags openly that he has bedded dozens of lady friends. You on the other hand don't see the point of 'numbers', because you are a functioning human being who has mentally matured over the age of 16. However, he won't drop it. 

If you cave and tell him, no number will ever be right. 2 and he'll call you a prude, 20 and he'll say some disgusting quote like "A key that opens many locks is a good key, but a lock that is opened by many keys is a bad key". Literally doesn't that saying just make you want to vomit and despair for the world. 

7. He uses the word "slut". 

This rule doesn't just apply to f*ck boys, if anyone in your life uses the word "slut" then cut them off. Honestly, just not ok. Side note, he will not hesitate in calling a woman a "slut" and branding her actions wrong but in the same vein will boast about all the "sluts he's banged". 

8. He is weirdly possessive with his phone.

Phones are private, and yes you should never break that trust and look through someone's phone. However, being jumpy every time he gets a text, shielding his password like he's typing in his pin at a cash point and taking it literally everywhere with him is not normal behaviour. F*ck boy alert. 

9. He goes M.I.A a lot. 

Sometimes he'll just randomly not speak or see you for a week at a time, and then pop back up in your life. Or never pop back up and then you find out he has a new girlfriend. Yeah, he's weighing up his options and keeping you in his roster. What a f*uck boy move.

10. He asks for nudes a lot and sends unsolicited dick pics. 

A classic f*ck boy tactic, why is this still a thing? I'm pretty sure an unsolicited dick pic has never worked on a woman. Also, if he's asking you for nudes he is probably asking 20 other girls too in the hopes that one of them responds. Ew. 

Any or most of these sound familiar? Then you, my friend, have got a f*ck boy on your hands. Once a f*ck boy, always a f*ck boy. So get rid, or just link him this article and I'm sure he'll get the picture...

Tom Hiddleston has finally broken his silence on his relationship with Taylor Swift, in a candid interview with GQ. Read the following extract, and prepare to fall in love with Tom *even* more... 

“Taylor is an amazing woman,” reads the prepared statement Tom Hiddleston has memorized and is now giving me at The Bull & Last, where his voice has gone low. “She’s generous and kind and lovely, and we had the best time.” But I didn’t ask that, I say. I asked something else. 

So I wait, and he says, “Of course it was real.” 

“The truth is, it was the Fourth of July and a public holiday and we were playing a game and I slipped and hurt my back. And I wanted to protect the graze from the sun and said, ’Does anyone have a T-shirt?’ And one of her friends said, ’I’ve got this.’ ” 

The friend pulled out the "I ♥ T.S." tank top that Taylor’s friends are contractually obligated to own. “And we all laughed about it. It was a joke.” So that’s his statement on the entire relationship: an explanation of the tank top. “It was a joke,” he repeats. “Among friends.” 

“I have to be so psychologically strong about not letting other people’s interpretations about my life affect my life. A relationship exists between two people. We will always know what it was. The narratives that are out there altogether have been extrapolated from pictures that were taken without consent or permission, with no context. Nobody had the context for that story. And I’m still trying to work out a way of having a personal life and protecting it, but also without hiding. So the hardest thing is that that was a joke among friends on the Fourth of July.” 

He still isn’t looking at me. The last piece of my steak is now poised on his fork in mid-air. He is so sad, and I can’t take it anymore, so I put my hand on his and I say, “Tom, Tom, it’s okay. You don’t have to talk about the tank top anymore. I got it. I understand. I’ll tell the world.” 

But he can’t stop talking about it. He literally cannot stop talking about it. “I don’t know,” he says. “I just, I was surprised. I was just surprised that it got so much attention. The tank top became an emblem of this thing.” It’s hard to tell me this, he says. He wants to trust me. He wants to trust that the world won’t use this to embarrass him again, but he doesn’t know. He just knows it will follow him until he talks about it. And anyway, none of this has anything to do with the person he fell in love with. 

“I only know the woman I met. She’s incredible.” But, man, all those cameras. “A relationship in the limelight… A relationship always takes work. A relationship in the limelight takes work. And it’s not just the limelight. It’s everything else.” He wanted a regular relationship. So did she, he says she said. “So we decided to go out for dinner, we decided to travel.”

After Sunday night's Screen Actors Guild Awards, winners struck a defiant tone against Trump's sweeping immigration ban. From emotional personal reflections to battle cries, all the speeches united in their disdain for Trump's latest policy: halting of immigrants from seven predominantly Muslim nations. 


Julia Louis-Dreyfus, while accepting another feather in her cap for Veep, made a gripping comment about the same. "I'm an American patriot. And I love this country. And because I love this country, I am horrified by its blemishes. This immigrant ban is a blemish, and it is un-American." As the daughter of an immigrant who fled religious persecution in Nazi-occupied France, Louis-Dreyfus' words shook the room. 

Taraji P. Henson, whose film Hidden Figures snagged the award for Best Movie Ensemble, was quick to add to the discourse. "This story is about unity," said Henson, alongside her costars Octavia Spencer and Janelle Monae. ''This story is about what happens when we put our differences aside and we come together as a human race. We win. Love wins. Every time." 

But the most moving speech of all came from Mahershala Ali, who won best supporting actor for his acclaimed performance in Moonlight. Ali said the film, about a shy, gay Miami boy's hard life, holds lessons of acceptance. "We see what happens when you persecute people," Ali said. "The fold into themselves." Ali said his own relationship with his mother exemplified tolerance. The son of Protestant minister, Ali converted to Islam 17 years ago. But despite their clear differences, he says that love is stronger. "We put things to the side," Ali said of their differences. "I'm able to see her. She's able to see me. We love each other. The love has grown. That stuff is minutia. It's not that important."
