Mahiki Madness

2012 has been a pretty big year on the birthday front for me and my friends – it’s time for the big     1 8!  We’ve celebrated a lot over the few months and this week, my friend Rosie decided to celebrate in style, so she booked all 8 of us a table at Mahiki!

Happy 18th Birthday Rosie

Mahiki is one of London’s best known nightclubs, with regular attendees being Prince Harry, Cheryl Cole and Nicole Sherzinger (to name a few).  It has a Hawaiian theme running throughout the club along with the infamous Mahiki Treasure Chest!  Unfortunately we didn't get a treasure chest, but we did manage this...
Our magmum belvedere bottle worth £385!!
Getting a bit too excited over the alcohol...

I wore a friends dress from Topshop with my much loved JC Litas (see my last post) and decided to curl my hair for a bit of a change!

Me and the gorgeous birthday girl!
The gang (minus Fia)
Me and my best friend Sarah

After an amazing night we bundled into taxis and went back to Rosie’s where we crawled into bed and woke up the next morning feeling slightly worse for wear... slightly being an understatement! 

So thankyou very much Mahiki for a brilliant night out and a banging headache in the morning, and here's to more birthday celebrations in 2013!

Lovely Litas

Hello there!

Today I’m writing about a new found love of mine that comes in the form of a pair of shoes... If you haven’t already guessed from the title, I finally managed to get my hands on a pair of Jeffery Campbell Litas!!
For those of you who don’t know what these shoes look like (have you been living under a rock?!) here they are in all their glory!

Jacket - H&M, Tshirt - Topshop, Jeans - Jack Wills, Necklace - Topshop

I picked these up when I went to New York with my family in August.  After hours of dragging my less than impressed family around endless shops, we ended up in Urban Outfitters (aka.  heaven) where I spotted these beauties! I’d been umm-ing and ahh-ing over getting these for ages because they are quite expensive and I’d have to pay shipping costs to get them in from abroad but I finally took the plunge and invested in them!  They cost me $212 which is roughly £132 - I know it’s a ridiculous amount of money to spend on a pair of shoes but seeing as I was in the USA and they're cheaper and simply amazing, I couldn't help myself!

Paddy my cat decided to join in with my photoshoot!

I love the spike detailing on the back of the shoes as it toughens up any outfit and makes them completely different to anything I already own.  Seeing as the shoes are quite a statement, I try to keep the rest of my outfit quite simple as you can see from the outfit above, but I’ve previously worn them with my favourite LBD and a red lip for a night out as well.

If you’re interested in buying them for yourself, you can get them from Office, Urban Outfitters or Motel as they have recently begun to stock them.

Happy shopping! 

Love Tara xo

Initial Introductions!

Hello everyone!

Welcome to Tara Says Bonjour! I’m Tara and 17, currently a student completing my A-levels at college. I’m beauty and fashion obsessed so I thought it was finally time to put my love into something worthwhile and fun! This is my first blog post and I’ve been debating for ages on what to write it on but it has taken me way too long to get my lovely blog up and running so I thought I’d just start off with an intro post!

I’m intending this blog to be all about what interests me, mainly fashion and beauty with a few posts about me thrown in... if you’re interested of course! I’ve been really scared about this first post on my blog but now hopefully that it’s finally up and running I’ll be posting as often as I can!

I hope you all enjoy reading my blog as it expands with more posts, I thought I’d keep the first one short and sweet so as not to bore you all to death!

Hope everyone’s having a lovely week and please subscribe to my blog to see more posts :)

Love, Tara xo
