Face Lift!

In case you haven't already noticed, I've given my blog a bit of a face lift!
I had been unhappy with my 'Camera, Clothes etc' for a while and I couldn't put my finger on what I wanted to change, so I have decided to go for an entirely new look and name! 
'Camera, Clothes etc' is no more, and 'Hey There Good-Looking' has taken its place! It's still me blogging about more or less the same things, but I just fancied a fresh look! With 'Hey There Good-Looking' I want to broaden by posts to include more lifestyle and entertainment posts as well as fashion and photography. I am excited to begin blogging with a fresh face!
What do you think of my new look?

Nail Art

The other day I bought a black nail art pen, so this week I have been experimenting with nail designs. On my nails I went for a leopard design and on my sisters nails I tried to copy Zoey Deschanel's tuxedo nails that she had at the 2012 Golden Globe Awards.
What do you think?

Rihanna: Red Carpet Beauty at the Grammys

Singer Rihanna was hands down my favourite star on the red carpet that night! She wore a custom silk Armani gown as she arrived at the 54th Annual GRAMMY Awards, which was held at Staples Centre on February 12, 2012 in Los Angeles, California. The dress had a plunging neckline, which was complimented by a high slit, as well as a dramatically open back and a mermaid silhouette which showed of her gorgeous figure. She teamed her dress with gold jewellery, tousled hair and minimal make-up - simple and sexy!

What do you think of Rihanna's dress?

Next Big Thing: Emeli Sande

On Thursday, I went to see the lovely Emeli Sande at the intimate Borderline in Tottenham Court Road.
Sande first began turning heads as a songwriter, writing songs for Cheryl Cole, Leona Lewis and Tinie Tempah; Simon Cowell had claimed that he was her favourite writer around! Last year she released releasing her debut single Heaven which earnt her a MOBO nomination for Best Newcomer. I was blown away by how stunning her voice was, shes sounds exactly as she does on her records, if not better! It looks like 2012 is going to be her year - she's already won the 2012 Brits Critics Choice Award, who's previous recipients include Adele, Jessie J and Florence and the Machine. She is such a talent and is definitely one to watch out for!

This is my favourite song of hers:
Next To Me is her most recent release:

Style Crush: Rose Byrne

There are a handful of actresses who seem to have a certain sartorial star-power – no matter what they wear, it just looks so effortlessly cool. Kate Bosworth, Kate Moss, Rachel Bilson, Emma Stone, Gwyneth Paltrow... and now, Rose Byrne?

Australian actress Rose Byrne made her screen debut in 1994 with a small role in the film Dallas Doll. In 2000 she played a leading role in the Australian film The Goddess of 1967, which brought her a Venice Film Festival award for Best Actress.

She made her mark on the Hollywood movie scene in the epic movie Troy. Since then, she has been one of the brightest fixtures on the red carpet, and shows off some of the best fashion from the top designers. Since 2007, she has played Ellen Parsons in the series Damages, which has earned her two Golden Globe Awards nominations and two Emmy Awards nominations. In 2011, she cemented her star status as she starred in three box office hits, Insidious, X-Men: First Class and Bridesmaids.

Byrne has earned her right to be a style icon, not just for her spectacular hair, but also for her impressive outfit selections that make her the epitome of understated sophistication.

What I love about Byrne is that even when she wears a statement frock, she controls it in a chic way (so that the dress doesn’t wear her) and she takes risks! At the 2012 SAG Awards, Byrne shunned tradition and wore an embellished vintage Elie Saab jumpsuit on the red carpet; she said, "I saw this jumpsuit and tried it on about two years and when I saw it again, I thought I'm gonna rock this tonight," her risk paid off; she looked truly sensational! 

Byrne shows that you can experiment with statement outfits and bold colours/prints, and remain elegant and chic. 

I can't wait to see more of her on the red carpet this awards season!

Book worm

I have always been a keen reader, but since starting my A-levels, my huge workload has meant that I have been reading less, so one of my New Years resolutions was to start reading again. For Christmas my sisters bought me the complete Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. It's a pretty hefty book, but it has all the investigations and adventures of "the world's most popular detective". 
The fabulous Sherlock Holmes was born when author Doyle was at Edinburgh University studying medicine. One of his professors provided the model for one of his most famous creations. After his first Holmes publiction, A Study in Scarlet (1879), Holmes' popularity grew and Doyle went on to write many more novels about him. I have just completed the first story, A Study in Scarlet, which starts with Dr Watson moving in with amateur detective Holmes. After discovering a dead man at a deserted house, Watson is baffeld at the writing on the wall in blood and how the corpse has no mark of violence on it. The intriguing story follows Holmes’s brilliant analytical skills to uncover a trail of murder and revenge - addictive stuff!
Now I have eight more stories to go!
