McDonald's to Deliver


You know the feeling... you've got the hangover of all hangovers and all you want is a Big Mac, large fries and a full fat Coke. But you just can't seem to bring yourself out from your hungover slobbish state. You know the only thing that'll make your hangover better is a trip to McDonald's, but you just can't move. And this just makes matters worse.

But fear not, we will no longer have to put up with this because McDonald's have announced that they will finally start to home deliver! There is a God.

 For the first time, this summer the fast food giants shall be starting a trial run within the UK for home delivery. We will finally be able to enjoy our favourite meals without leaving the comfort of our own home and we can't wait.

"It is no secret we have been looking at the potential of delivery in recent months," a spokesperson told Cosmopolitan. "This service is offered in other markets around the world and its growth within the UK, continues to gather pace. Listening to our customers, we know that this is a route they would like us to explore, and I can confirm that we are looking to launch a small delivery pilot this summer. Specific locations to be included within this pilot are yet to be decided."

Already home delivering in China and Singapore, McDonald's are also expected to launch in America, Canada, France and Germany. It's about time they came to the UK.

We're already counting down the days.

Vogue Spain


We have been featured in an article in May's issue of Vogue Spain. The article looks into the life of a fit model and our director, Gemma, was asked about the fitting industry and what its takes to be a good fit model.

Even if you're not fluent in Spanish, like us, go grab your hands on a copy when it hits newsstands next week!

Balenciaga Channels IKEA

Recognise this bag? Do you feel like you have most definitely seen it before? That's probably because you have and you may even own on.

Balenciaga have recently launched their latest tote - see above - and we can't help but notice that it is almost identical to the trusty Ikea Frakta carrier bag that we have all certainly owned at some point.

 Whilst the Ikea carrier is made entirely out of platic with a price tag of 40p, the designer bag is a bit more up-market and made of fine Italian leather. And will set you back around £1,600.

So how did Ikea react to this news? Probably in the best way possible...


 Sales leader, Stella Monteiro told Today, "We are extremely flattered to seemingly be an inspiration for the latest catwalk designs for Balenciaga."

"Our Ikea Frakta tote is one of our most iconic products which are already owned and loved by millions - now many people truly can get the designer look for less."

We've got to give it to Ikea for this genius ad and response to Balenciaga. Now all we need to do is dig out our own or head straight to our local Ikea and get our hands on the latest 'it' bag.

The Helix Tattoo


The tattoo trend you're about to see everywhere...

Introducing the helix tattoo. A new alternative to the behind-the-ear tat that many people see as the go-to. No longer will you be needing earrings, when you can just have them permanently drawn on.


Delicate floral designs to minimalist lines that perfectly resemble earrings are fast becoming the next big thing.
If you're thinking that this is right up your street and already picking out designs, you might want to think again.

According to Joel Tron, Australian-based piercer and owner of Stone Heart Body Art in Sydney, when it comes to the design, it should be kept simple as they are prone to leaking and bleeding.

"Specifically, in regards to ear tattooing, when you inject the ink using a needle into tissue that's so thin, with very little dermis for the ink to reside in, what can often happen is the ink will just blow out," Tron told Elle Australia. "So you'll see a lot of ear cartilage tattoos that look good for the first three to six months, but just like wet paper with ink they slowly leak and bleed at the seams, and then the design quite often looks more like a blur that it does a picture."

If you're loving this but not committed to actually inking yourself, you could always grab your trusty liquid eyeliner and get creative. It'll cost you nothing and you can wipe it off if it's not your thing.

Bridal Week

Last week saw New York taken over with brides as Bridal Week came to town. Unlike your traditional wedding dress of sweetheart necklines and Chantilly lace, the Spring 18 shows were unlike anything we've seen before.

 Two pieces, black ribbons, elaborate jewels and extravagant veils, designers celebrated the changing styles of the modern day bride.

 If you're in the midst of planning a wedding or just want to look at pretty dress then keep scrolling to see our faves.

Vogue Spain

We've kept this a secret for a long time but we can finally say we're in VOGUE SPAIN!

Our director, Gemma, was interviewed about the fitting industry and what it takes to be a good fit model.

Now all we need to do is translate...


One of our fit bags has been spotted over in Ireland



We're on YouTube

Ta-da! We're on YouTube! 

Check out our new video where we tested out some of the latest products from drugstores and high-end brands to see which is best for fits.

Make sure you like, subscribe and share!


Last week we told you about some of the bizarre jean trends that have hit the market recently.

One we told you about was the partly plastic jeans, the ones with plastic patches over the knee.

Well now, Topshop have taken this design a little further. Introducing their latest product... the MOTO Clear Plastic Straight Leg Jean, made entirely out of plastic.

Retailed at £55, the brand calls them 'out-of-the-ordinary' and 'guaranteed to get people talking.' The product description describes the jean as 'ideal as a statement piece for a festival or costume party.'

A statement piece at that. Probably not the best item of clothing to be wearing as Summer approaches for obvious reasons. But it would be interesting to see how well this product sells and more importantly what attention they would get if you were to be seen wearing these whilst doing your food shop. And if you're willing to part £55 for these, then credit to you


How amazing is Dani

Fashion Revolution Week


Today kickstarts Fashion Revolution Week, which was set up three years ago in rememberance of the Rana Plaza factory collapse in Bangladesh, where 1,138 garment factory workers were killed with a further 2,500 people injured.

In a bid to remember those that lost their lives for fast fashion with hopes to improve working conditions and wages of the 75 million garments workers across the world. The initiative runs between April 24th - 30th each year to raise awareness, push us consumers to ask brands, '2ho made my clothes?' and advocating for a more ethical and self-conscious industry.

Co-founded in London by designers Orsola de Castro and Carry Somers, the revolution has now spread to almost 100 countries with support from some of the biggest names within fashion including Stella McCartney and Lily Cole.

This years Fashion Revolution is encouraging brans to look into the wages they pay their workers.

"There's a difference between the minimum wage - set by countries - and the qulaity of life the living wage affords," says Melina Tually, the Australian and New Zealand co-ordinator of Fashion Revolution. "The minimum wage often isn't enough to cover someone's nutritional, health and education needs. It's difficult to settle on a common living wage across the world but it doesn't mean brands can't be trying."

So what can we do and how do we take part?

All you need to do is... take a label selfie, tag the brand and ask them #whomademyclothes on Twitter and Instagram.

Last year the hashtag through 70,000 posts reached 129 million people. Over 1,200 brands responded with links to their corporate social responsibility policy, detailed information and even phtotos of the garment workers.

 For all the information and how to get involved visit their website.

We've got some new bags for all our amazing models


Jeans Trend


The most common item of clothing, found in everyones wardrobe and worn by millions day in, day out. The classic blue jean, the mom jean, boyfriend jean... there's so many different styles suited to everyones taste. 

But recently, jeans seem to be going off in a whole new direction. First came the jeans that had clear panels over the knee, then came the extra zip on the bottom from Vetements x Levi, which allows you to unzip and expose your whole bottom - yep, these exactly exist... see below.


 And now, its got a whole lot weirder.


Introducing, half jeans. Seen here on American singer and actor, Ryan Destiny. Making it's debut at Coachella - of course - we're not so sure on this one. How did this idea come about, first of all? Did you buy them like this? Or did your creative juices start flowing and wanted to have the best outfit at Coachella? 

Not so sure if we're going to jump on the bandwagon with this one. Maybe this should stay at Coachella and never been seen again... 

Shaving Myths

Summer is fast approaching and it's getting warmer and warmer, which can only mean one thing for us girls... It's time to wave goodbye to tights and jeans and say hello to pretty Summer dresses and get those legs out - shaving season is upon us.

You can no longer get away with not shaving for days, maybe weeks upon end. After all, nobody wants to see a forrest growing on your legs whilst you bask in the British heat.

So, with that we've decided to put together some common shaving myths from Gillette, to get to the truth behind all our shaving problems.

Myth: Shaving every day causes hair to grow back thicker, darker and faster
Well, according to Gillette, shaving every morning or night does NOT cause hair to grow back quicker, thicker and darker! It's down to your genetics and hormones that determines how quick, thick or dark your hairs are.

Myth: Shaving cream isn't necessary
Shaving cream is necessary as it helps to shave. Using soap and water will only dry out the skin, whereas creams will provide a layer of protection against cuts. If you're not keen on shaving cream, opt for conditioner, it works exactly the same - and you'll always have some on hand.

Myth: It's okay to dry shave
WRONG! This will be painful and leave a mess. You don't want to be walking around with red spots all over your legs. Water and some form of gel or cream is necessary!

Myth: Shaving will take away my tan
This is going through everyones mind when it comes to shaving on holiday. And according to Gillette, this is false! You can't simply shave away a tan. In fact, shaving regularly whilst on holiday will enhance your tan by taking away the top layer of flaky, dead skin revealing your glow.

Myth: Pressing hard will give a closer shave
No, no, no - pressing hard will only cause nicks and cuts! To get the closest shave, use a light touch and don't go over the same area repeatedly.

There you have it! All your shaving fears gone, along with all your hairs.
