TTB & Nosyeux

We were contacted recently by the wonderful guys over at Nosyeux. They are an online platform with an interesting concept - To try and better understand the liason between fashion and daily life. They pose the same three questions to different bloggers and the result is quite interesting. See what we both had to say HERE

A few weeks ago we were invited to Metrocentres Fashion Live Event. Fashion shows took place over 4 days and showcased the high street spring summer collections including the likes of ZARA,Topshop, New Look and Monsoon. We had an amazing day watching the shows, meeting the style team and we now have extremley long wish lists. The highstreet has far too many beautiful pieces on offer this season!
Tomorrow we are heading to the Metrocentre again to cover another exciting event. Elite Model Look UK, the search for fashions next face. The search is responsible for launching the careers of Cindy Crawford, Gisele Bunchen, Constance Jablonski and most recently Nyasha Matonhodze.
We will keep you updated on the event via twitter, make sure you follow us @TWICETHEBLOG

Over the weekend we were lucky enough to be invited to the Metrocentre 'Fashion Live' Fashion show and felt it the perfect occasion to take our new neon purchases out for a spin.
It was such an impressive event, the staging for the show was fantastic and they even had a styling pod with stylists on hand in case you wanted a little wardrobe advice/ revamp- had we not been so flustered we may well have got involved, there were some beautiful pieces there!
We were treated so well and given some wonderful goodie bags and front row seats for the show.
The Metrocentre is the biggest shopping centre in Europe, its sheer magnitude is beyond impressive and the shops it houses are some of our favourites - Zara playing a large part in that!
 Having it in our home city and being asked to attend the show and be part of it was a real honour for us.
 Thank you so much to Sally and the girls for making us feel so welcome and giving us the best seats in the house.

Worth A Lust - H&M Neon Accessories

Heels & Necklace - H&M

If you have stopped by either of our individual blogs lately you might have noticed we share a mutal love for the brighter things in life. 
The past month has been a washout here in Newcastle but H&M have provided us with some beautiful flashes of neon to keep us feeling summery - Phew! 
These neon heels are sheer perfection, we both managed to snap up a pair before the rush and at £24.99 they are a steal! As for the necklace....we will be wearing this with everything!

One sure thing to brighten up your day when it's raining cats and dogs? Why, your best friend of course!
Sporting the kind of brights that would awaken the dead, we braved the monsoon and found ourselves a nice little sheltered spot whilst en route to our local coffee shop/ hang out for chats of the fashion based variety and to consume copious amounts of caffeine.
Two things were discussed;

1. The way in which an item of clothing you first thought to be semi-acceptable, suddenly becomes your most favourite item. Ever. Fickle fashion is a funny thing!

2. The excitement of Raf Simon's recent move to Dior and the possibilities it holds!

 Also, 'staring etiquette'.
We don't know about you guys, but whenever we pull up a pew to take some snaps we suddenly acquire three or four people, out of no where, standing and staring like we're some kind of freak show?! Now we would never just gawp, open mouthed at someone taking a picture, it's very rude and such a foreign concept to us that every time it happened we couldn't help but burst out laughing!
Answer: Occupational hazard.

Worth A Lust - Ginta Lapina Puerto Rican Vogue April 2012

Puerto Rican Vogue: Ginta Lapina

This WAL post is all kinds of perfect.
The Givenchy steel- capped heels, the Chanel tweeds and the Peplum polka dot/ snakeskin combo.
It's like some kind of Sugar spun, candy coloured dream that we do not want to wake up from!

Trendy twins...

The Lovely Ana Farais of Trendy Twins blog did an absolutely beautiful feature on us where she created a montage that showcased a few of our outfits from the archives of our own respective blogs, which showed (more than we even realised) how in-tune we really are!
You can read the feature here, it is in Portuguese but you can translate it very easily with the modern-day marvel that is the internet.
