Grab your 5 a day!

As most of you will be aware one of the key trends this Spring/Summer is fruit but not the kind you might find in your kitchen bowl. I'm talking about fabulous kitsch fruit jewellery. Miu Miu and Prada are leading us in the fruit race and Net-A-Porter have sold out of their fabulous Swarovski Crystal Apple Earrings. (I'm hoping that these will be back in stock very very soon and I can channel my inner Cheryl Cole and look as beautiful as her in them!)

Until these Miu Miu ones become available again, the high street have their healthy options to choose from and your New Year's healthy eating plan will soon become very easy with these. Apples seem to be key but any fruit works so don't be afraid to pile on the bananas, apples and strawberries!

ASOS Apple Rhinestone Ring £15

Topshop Apple Pendant £8.50

Accessorize Strawberry Pendant £5

And for the very brave these fabulous Charlotte Olympia heels are sure to draw attention when you step out in Spring. Perfect with a colour block shift dress. *DROOL*

Happy New Year!

Hi Guys

A very Happy New Year to you all and I really hope you enjoyed your various celebrations. I spent the night ogling over Mark Ronson for all of five minutes. We arrived late for his set so I only caught the last part - still felt like I was in heaven though!!

So 2011 eh? I have a list of New Year's Resolutions as long as my arm and am definitely going to try my best to stick to them. One of the biggest ones being to blog more often. The aim of 'These Girls Turn Heads' was originally to take photos of girls who caught my eye whilst I was out and about around London town. Sometimes its hard to approach people and ask for a photo of them without them thinking you are a complete weirdo. But this year I am determined to shake of the nerves and get papping around the streets of London.

On another note, before Christmas I kept telling myself that no matter what I would be forceful in my sale shopping this year but unfortunately I got quite ill with the dreaded flu bug that was going around. Bleurgh. I managed some shopping on ASOS (nothing quite like browsing the sales through the comfort of your own bed) and picked up the gorgeous Curve Peter Pan Collar dress I've been lusting after for a while. I let the hype (and flu) dye down before I hit Oxford Street and when I did I have to say it wasn't as hellish as I thought it might be! I managed to get a beautiful sequin lace top from Topshop (couldn't believe it actually fit me) and a beautiful 70s-esque Kimono. I am in serious love with this top and it's perfect for me because I hate showing my arms!!

And this is me in this beauty on New Year's Eve, paired with this gorgeous gold leaf dress from the Evans sale - a bargain at £25.

I'm also very excited about the London Blogger Meet on February 5th that Carla and Lauren are organising! Very much looking forward to meeting everyone.

Here's to a very happy and healthy 2011 for you all
