Recently in the office, we've been going crazy for Avocados!
The savoury fruit - (we thought it was a vegetable too) is not only great for your skin, hair, nails & heart, but it's tasty too!
So to motivate your Monday we're bringing you the 'Top 5 health benefits of eating avocados' - why we love them, and why they love us back!

Ahead of a weekend full of dresses, heels & champagne, a 'flawless' face has been the hot topic of our office.
We've heard the key to the perfect make up base is a good quality brush - so here's our Friday fix to help you achieve that sought after, naturally flawless finish.
Used and reccomended by Melissa Odabash herself, the Urban Decay Good Karma Optical Blurring Brush's dense, domed bristles distrubutes foundation evenly and flawlessly, creating the illusion of a perfect, clear complexion.
By using small circular movements to help buff foundation into your skin, you are able to achieve a naturally airbrushed effect to make skin appear smoother and fine lines are blurred.
This is why this brush is an essential for night out preparation, when lots of flash photography demands amazing-looking skin!
It does exactly what it says on the tin: 'Good Karma' - good things will come to those who buy!
And for those of you who don't already have this item in your make up bag, we suggest it be on your shopping list!

As the tumbleweed passes through Somerset House, the models get some sleep and everyone pack's up to do it all over again in Milan - we bring you our A/W 14 trend round up from London Fashion Week. Whether it be Apricot, Papaya or Tangerine, an array of Orange shades beamed across the catwalks, specifically in the form of Winter coats - the perfect way to brighten up the dreary Winter's of London. The Key: Don't let this bright colour put you off, just remember if you do go bold in orange - choose the right shade for your skin tone.
Porcelain skins can avoid looking too washed out by wearing the shade below the waist. However if you have cool tones - stay away from the red tints, Calvin Klein's true Orange skirt is perfect for you.
Olive skinned ladies look great in Apricot to emphasise their Mediterranean skin, just like Antipodium's Fur Collared Coat; and if you have dark skin? Well you will look good in any shade of Orange so take advantage and embrace this trend at full force!
Taking inspiration from Abstract art, Graphic prints were seen head to toe from Peter Pilotto and Roksanda Illinic.
Central Saint Martins taught Hiroko Nakajimi spread the graphic trend by incoorporating it into her knitwear designs, so go ahead and embrace your inner Mondrian this Winter with 'Go Graphic'.
The Key: Choose styles that focus their print on the most flattering part of your body; this way you will draw attention to your best bits and distract from any you're not so proud of!
Prom Queen and Jock are two characters we constantly see paired together, and this Autumn Winter, Ashish and Christopher Kane have taken that idea even further with some very glamorous Varisty inspired pieces.
The Varisty trend has popped up numerous times throughout the last year, but this time it's about finding a balance, making sure not to lose focus on your femininity in this look.
The Key: Sequins, glitter and pearls - the go-to embellishments from this look to keep things feminine. Push this trend with some feminine joggers, or keep it clean and smart with a body con midi skirt and minimalist heels.

Concluding this evening, New York fashion week has presented us with yet again, another schedule of trend accelerating fashion creatives. So without further ado, here is NYFW's Autumn Winter '14 trend alert; and this year, there was a clear winner from the flock. We've seen it all before, been there, done that, worn the t-shirt; but there's a reason this timeless trend is back again as New York Fashion Week goes mad for monochrome.
