    • Friday Fix: Nail This Year's Colour Trend

      Just as the attendees of last week's Coachella have finally recovered from their fun-filled antics Friday has come back round again, meaning it's time for Coachella Part 2!

      If we do say so ourselves, we had some major style envy from all of the usual suspects including Kate Bosworth, Alessandra Ambrosio and Kendall Jenner, although they probably saw last weekend as the fashion warm up! This week the trend stakes will be raised even higher and what better way to be ahead than to showcase the Pantone 'Colour of the Year' Marsala in any way possible.

      This rich colour, which can be classed as a dark red/burgundy shade, is the perfect way to set off a tan and contrast with the classic boho creams and browns that are often the go-to uniform of Coachella.

      If like us you want to stay away from darker clothing now Summer is on the way the best way to display your trend knowledge of this tone is to incorporate it into your beauty look, whether it's a dark stain on your lips or a pop on your nails.
      Personally, we think Chanel's Le Vernis in 639 Exception is perfection and flawless way to incorporate this craze into your Coachella wardrobe.

      Today is the ultimate FRIYAY!
      We've all worked a four day week and for all the music and fashion lovers out there this weekend gives us the excitement of the first key festival of the year - Coachella.

      From this afternoon countless celebrities, models, actresses and musicians will travel up to the Empire Polo Club in the Colorado Desert, California to party hard and watch an impressive line-up that includes Alesso, Duke Dumont, Drake, Clean Bandit, Florence and the Machine, Kasabian and Royal Blood - jealous much?
      However, Coachella has progressed from being just about the music, it's also all about what you wear.
      With Kendall Jenner, Alessandra Ambrosio and Rosie Huntington-Whitely setting the styles bar high last year it's important to make sure you nail that key boho-chic look if you are one of the people lucky enough to be attending.
      (See our Festival Fashions guide posted a couple of weeks ago if you need any last minute inspo!)

      To channel a cool and yet effortless festival look, we are without a doubt that Flash Tattoos are the way forward. Seen on the likes of Beyonce, Khloe Kardashian and Coachella Queen Vanessa Hudgens these jewellry-inspired tattoos come in a variety of styles and will help add that cool factor to your outfit.

    • Easter Detox - Tailored Exercise Routines

      The long weekend of over indulgence may seem a distant memory now we are back to the daily grind, but our bulging tummies are unfortunately providing a prominent reminder of the one-too-many meals we ate over the last five days. Oops!

      With Easter out the way it is time to turn our focus to Summer and with the lovely sunny weather serving as a polite reminder that bikini season is now right around the corner we thought we would lend a hand to your post-Easter exercise regime.
      As the saying goes 'This month's choices are next month's body.'

    • Friday Fix: Tasty Treats at Prawn on the Lawn

      This Friday, we thought it was time to turn our attentions away from our external appearance and show some care and attention to our insides as healthy eating is something we take pretty seriously at Melissa Odabash - after all how else are we going to get our bikini bodies in time for summer?
      We are also firm believer's in the importance of treating ourselves to a meal out, and fortunately being based in London we are spoilt for choice with wonderful restaurants which still keep our clean eating on track.

      One of our regular haunts is the infamous Prawn on the Lawn based in the bustling area of Islington.
