Notting Hill Carnival

Posted in In the Press Inspiration Fashion   |  By jones + jones


This weekend is London Notting Hill Carnival, the 2015 parade celebrates 'Emergence of Carnival'. The carnival first started back in 1966 and since has attracted around 1 million people, making it one of the largest street festivals in the world. The parade will take place on the streets of Notting Hill, Kensington and Chelsea. 

We love the creativity of the outfits, colours and decorations, definietly a picture esque moment. Everything from the dancing to the music to the food makes the Nottinghil Carnival a fun day out. We wonder what famous faces we"ll see this year, one of our faves from last year was Cara Delevingne, the model was getting into the festival spirit dressing in bright floral attire, a floral headpiece, and bright tone eyeshadow. 

Here at Jones and Jones we're celebrating by offering our customers 25% off! Use our code CARNIVAL25, offer starts Friday28th August and ends Thursday 3rd September so hurry. 

We're secretly hoping Rihanna will make an appearance at this years Notting Hill Carnival, earlier on in the year she celebrated the carnival in her hometown of Barbados. Heare are the We Found Love singer's best carnival looks to date. 


Boybands Throughout the Ages

Posted in In the Press   |  By jones + jones

At the beginning of this week our favourite UK boyband announced their split which will take place early next year. Although the four heart-throbs insist they are only taking a break and will join forces again and release another album after a year of going their seperate ways, how much can we really believe this?

It's only from boy band history that we have to believe this may be the end for the young lads. Its throughout the music industry that when bands announce a break they do not reform, some examples include, Take That, Backstreet Boys, New Kids on the Block and N Sync. However these boy bands reunited many years later and joined together to do a reunion tour to mark an anniversay. Abit closer to home, British boyband Take That released 2 albums after reuniting nearly over a decade since their split and gained phenomenon success, with singles and tours. 

The boys first found fame on Xfactor back in 2010 and since have had worldwide fame selling over billions of records in the UK and overseas as well as selling out tickets arena tickets. Earlier on in the year the 5th bad member Zayn Malik announced his decision to leave to become a solo artist, whilst the rest of the band quoted they would still continue on as a foursome and Zayn leaving would not mean the end for them. 

Here at the Jones and Jones office we all have our favourite One Direction member, whose yours?

Indian Summer

Posted in Inspiration Fashion   |  By jones + jones

 

It's wedding season, and I'm sure we all got our fair few of invites this summer. I was recently invited to an Indian Wedding and it was an amazing once in a lifetime experience, everything from the bright colours to decorations to the food was outstanding. 

The wedding took place in a temple, a beautiful ceremomy in a grand temple and welcoming guests. Later in the evening was the wedding party, a gorgeous decorated hall with a DJ and entertainment. The couple thought of everything, a magician, photo booth and live statues to keep guest occupied whilst waiting for the couples arrival.Tables were filled with party favours, chocolates and sweets wrapped up with the couples initials branded on it. Mini moroccon jewlerry boxes and big grand candle centre pieces.

I was in complete awe of the outfits, the women looked fabulous in their bright and colourful dresses, from gowns to sari's the embellishment and design was immaculate. It was either go big or dont bother at all, jewlerry was bold and dazzling, heavy earrings, choker neckalces and tons of bangles. You can never be dressed up too much at an Indian Wedding. 

 

 

The New Hair Trend - The Hun

Posted in Beauty   |  By jones + jones

The half bun, also known as The Hun, has become our favourite Pre-Fall style. Having been spotted on every a-lister from Margot Robbie to Khloe Kardashian, we cant help but fall in love. With everyone asking why we think this style is so great, we wanted to try and win you over too! To start the style is effortlessly cool and super easy to achieve. If you having a bad hair day this is the perfect updo for you! 

We think this style is both practical and pretty. You can opt for a neat Hun like Kate Middleton or go shabby chic like Sienna Miller. This style does work best when your hair is slightly dirty and has texture, we want to see you rocking The Hun!
