Rod Stewart will forever be my personal fashion icon. Looking back at his style file—primarily his on-stage outfits with band The Faces (accompanied by band member Ronnie Wood) and finally, solo—you can see the rock star was never afraid of a bold look. The leopard print-loving singer has always been eccentric with his fashion choices and clearly gets a kick out of playing dress-up. He’s worn it all—crop tops, wild prints, metallic spandex, you name it. My Dad might have wanted to dress like Stewart in the '70s, but I want to dress like him now.


Head over to Who What Wear to see me break down his most iconic looks, including Rod-esque pieces you can shop now. When it comes to style, Some Guys Have All The Luck.

I’ve noticed cactus water cropping up on the ingredient lists of my favourite skincare brands of late.

We all know how popular cactis have become of late thanks to the greenery interiors trend, and anyone who’s suffered sunburn knows how soothing the aloe plant can be. But just what can cactus water do for our skin regime day to day? I've got all the inside info, as well as the best products to shop - on Byrdie.co.uk today.

Is it just me, or is Instagram full of arty flat lays featuring an array of tempting earrings lately? If your lobes are feeling a bit lonely, I've got good news - the kind of not-so-simple jumbo earrings you need are everywhere, and at every price. No need to shell out for a whole new outfit, just one addition to your wardrobe (if you have the self-control to limit yourself to just one pair, of course) can make all the difference.


An XXL pair can breathe new life into last season’s dresses like no other accessory. You may have tried tassels and considered crystals, but for this season, earrings are appearing even bigger and bolder. Nothing is considered OTT in a bad way, with oversized styles reigning supreme—the search term "larger than life earrings" is currently trending on Pinterest, with a rise of 945% in saves year over year.


You can shop my edit of the hottest earrings to buy, on Who What Wear now. Don't blame me if you buy 10 pairs!

They say art imitates life - but in this case, it’s the other way around. Our wardrobes are taking a lead from the art world right now, its simplistic portrait sketches to be precise. I’ve noticed many of our most-watched bloggers and street style stars are adding face prints to their wardrobe repertoire of late. Call it the Luke Edward Hall effect, but this has happened in tandem with this Camden-based artist popping up on every fashionistas Instagram feed right now, and his work is certainly echoed in that of this fashion trend. Two of our most stylish ladies to follow - Laura Jackson and Pandora Sykes, have both posted the artist’s coveted ceramics and prints, providing both interiors and fashion goals in one swoop. Always appreciated.

Tai chi might conjure up visions of elderly people in a park or simply slowly moving your hands in soft waves–but there’s much more to it than that. The practice is having a moment, as searches are up 189% on Pinterest. I tried a class and can tell you it’s both calming and challenging in equal measures. To learn more, I spoke to clinical acupuncturist Feras, who has been practising tai chi for over 25 years. He’s an indoor student of Master Ma Bao Guo and Master Hui Kit Wah, and a senior instructor within the Taoist Arts Organisation.


To find everything you need to know before a class, what to expect from a class, the health benefits and more - head over to Byrdie, now.

Amongst all its faults, sometimes Instagram throws up a real gem. I’m not sure how long I’d been Insta-stalking Emma Low, creator of Pot Yer Tits Away Luv — I was captivated by her handcrafted creations and trusty sidekick, Lady the cat. A few DMs later we spoke about all things boobs, business and beyond.


You can read the full interview on Bricks Magazine, trust me - it's a gudden.
