Nostalgia Thursday

Healthy food-blogging sisters, Jasmine and Melissa Hemsley have been making news recently with their fabulous free-from refined sugar, grains and gluten recipe book, 'The Art of Eating Well'.

Jasmine was a model at Anusha's first photo shoot, back in summer 2004. We featured her in two more shoots in the early years, and she played a part in defining the look of Anusha - a look that's continued to this day. Here's Jasmine wearing a beautiful SS04 Clarissa Hulse dress (remember the time when Clarissa used to make clothing?):

And here she is on the AW04 Anusha front page:

I'm back!

"Where have you been?" I hear you cry! Well, after a blog break enjoying a bit of time with my gorgeous toddler, Alice, I'm back – just in time to celebrate Anusha's 10th anniversary. TEN YEARS! What an amazing decade. Tears, tantrums, stress, sleepless nights. Oh, and lots of fun, too! (It's true – running a business is like bringing up a baby!)

Last summer, we rejigged Anusha to concentrate on jewellery and accessories. When we launched our collection of bridal earringsnecklaces and bracelets, it proved so popular that we decided to expand the range and add lots of sparkly hair combs, tiaras and pins. You'll see the full collection here.  

Weddings have been a big focus for our family this year, too: here's a snap of me and Alice at my sister's fabulous do in May. I wore a Ghost Sylvia dress, with jewellery from Anusha's new wedding collection, of course!

We had an amazing time at the inflatable Colourscape Moonorooni in the Holbourne yesterday. Alice absolutely loved it!

All stacked up

Today I'm wearing a stack of little bracelets – along with my favourite Anusha Olotta twisted bead and disc cuff – in a mix of silver, khaki and turquoise. When stacking bracelets, balance is important - blending similar styles, various sizes and coordinated colour palettes can work well. 

However, have fun – just grab the first bracelets you find in your jewellery box, and have a play around!

Anusha intern, Emma Reynolds, gives us her round-up of make-up trends for SS13

With the weather finally brightening up, it can only mean one thing – spring is upon us! To match this light and pretty season, it’s time to revamp your make-up collection in favour of the colourful new SS13 catwalk trends. 
Eyes have been a particularly heavy focus-point, throughout all four Fashion Weeks, with models parading coloured liner, jewelled lids and extra-long lashes down the runway. While the majority of us aren’t fortunate enough to have an expert make-up artist at our disposal – don’t despair because this look is totally attainable at home! Steal Cara Delevingne’s bright-eyed look, with a decent pair of false eyelashes, which are reusable and easy to apply (team with a hint of smudged eyeliner under the lash-line for that cool, ’90s-grunge look.
For brows, the ’60s thick-browed, filled-in look, complements the overall appearance. 
Meanwhile, creamy, dreamy matte lips are also a big make-up trend for SS13. From bubblegum pink and bright fuchsia, to velvety scarlet shades, these super-feminine and vibrant tones are perfect for moving towards the new season. Remember though – the only way to wear these bright colours is matte!

For cheeks, it’s all about the pinks for that subtle, fresh-faced glow. To keep things on-trend, opt for pink and pretty rose tints, as seen by models in Bottega Veneta, Marni and Topshop Unique – you can even make multiple-use of your lipstick by applying the same colour to your cheeks, for that English Rose look.
So overall – an easy-to-attain supermodel-look, which can be worn from day-to-night. An exciting season for beauty!
