Matthew Williamson Floral Armour Jacket
Personally I opted for this bow crop jacket from Topshop, as it's also nude so it hits two key trends in one.
And here it is on it's first night out..
Fearlessness and balance are the keys to statement jackets: don't be afraid to wear something a little more bright or detailed than usual BUT make sure you balance this out by keeping the rest of your outfit as plain as you can - block colours if possible. I plan to wear my new jacket with a black vest, black hareem pants, my trusted Mulberry Bayswater (also in black) and tan gladiator sandals.
Lots of love, Miss Colley x

I've had a month of ups and downs...the kind of month where you find out who your friends are, or more importantly, who your friends aren't. I saw a lot of different sides to people in a difficult situation designed to hurt me and a friend of mine who I have previously obsessed over on this very blog proved herself to be far from the person I thought she was. If I'm honest this totally knocked my confidence and challenged my trust in everyone around me. Luckily for me, the rest of my friends were as perfect as anyone could wish friends to be and I've emerged from the whole incident only slightly mentally scarred! On a serious note, a thought that kept me going through the whole drama was something once told to me by one of my besties Miss Rose Thomas. 'Everything will be okay in the end. If it's not okay, its not the end'. It might be just a little saying but for some reason it really stuck with me and I found myself relying it quite a lot.
And guess what? She was right. Everything worked out okay and life is back on track and if I dare say it.. better than ever. Haters will always be haters, just let them do their thing and do yours with your head held high and they'll just end up wasting their time. Plus, Colley loves attention anyway, they would have hurt me more by NOT talking about me!! So for now I'm doing like Breezy, chuckin my dueces up and saying..
'Nice try.. but it'll take a little more than that!'
To Becky, Rose, Claire, Emilee, Suzi, Brandon, Mo, Clem and my TWIN... I love you all x

On Thursday night my friend Rose came up to party at Whisky Mist with CEG, the company who brought Jay-Z to Merah for his high profile Brits after party. I'm not usually a fan of Whisky, but Thursday was a really good night, probably because I had all my girls around me and we were with some of the best hosts in London, as the club itself was full of kids and didn't impress me at all. I don't think I realised how drunk I was til I woke up the next day and wasn't surprised when I realised we were doing shots within 5 minutes of being in the club and still necking vodka from the bottle at 2am.
In terms of my outfit, I was pretty much sponsored by Topshop!
After a day of chilling, lunch and shopping, there were approximately a million options as to where me and Rose could go on Friday night. In the end we chose Millionheir PR at my favourite and much-visited club Merah. Having partied with Millionheir before and not been blown away, Friday night was like a second chance for them to show me how they get down...and they get DOWN. The vodka flowed from start to finish (and I mean finish, we were there when the LIGHTS CAME ON....cringe!!) and they popped Dom Perignon for our enjoyment. The vibe in Merah was unreal, most of the credit for this has to go to the DJ. I had such a good time, I always do with Rose but Friday was definitely one of our top 10 nights and I think she agrees!
I wore a fringed LBD and my faaaaavourite shoes!
On Saturday I packed my Abercrombies and Uggs and headed for the New Forest where I had planned to spend the rest of the weekend. My family have a gorgeous second home right near the beach and it was so relaxing to just chill out with an amazing view of the sea, go for long(ish) walks and spend time with my family..............
.............I lasted a whole 24 hours before I had to come back and party! Sunday's hotspot was Merah. My night was slightly affected by the fact that I got smacked in the face by a bottle of vodka by accident (people just tend to assume now that I like to drink from the bottle) and in shock I turned around and proceeded to walk straight into another bottle that somebody standing on the sofa behind me was holding. Brief unconsciousness, a few tears and a make up session later I was back partying in true form. It could only happen to me right! Pics will follow soon!

Situated on New Oxford Street, it's great location contributes to the popularity of the club which seems to have sprung from nowhere, however I think its the 6am license which seals the deal as it makes it ideal for people like myself who can find themselves bored by 2 or 3am and want a change of scenery. The new venue has no website, has not been widely advertised and there's basically no indication of its existence from the outside except a couple of doormen. This is because the club speaks for itself. Boasting 18 tables and a very sexy VIP area which is brightly lit compared to the rest of the club, the venue is impressive and conducent to a really good atmosphere.
Here's a pic of me and my lovely Becky. I wore a skirt from Topshop, body from American Apparel and my new Christian Audigier necklace (OBSESSED). My camera is currently MIA but when I find it in my not so tidy bedroom later I'll be uploading loads more pics!
I'd definitely recommend Runway as an after spot but I can see it's appeal as a sole destination too. I'm even considering it as a venue for my birthday so it must be good!

Yep I said it. It's shit. My intial reaction was 'AMAZING' but after watching once I realised I actually felt no desire to watch it again. Watch it here yourself and see what you think.
These were my problems...I don't see why she has to be half naked, she's not sexy. I don't know what lesbians or prisons have to do with telephones or clubs and I definitely don't think Beyonce does weird as well as Gaga. At all. In fact, Gaga is so weird that Beyonce actually fades into the background slightly and I don't like it. You've got to be pretty weird to outshine Beyonce's sex appeal.
Apart from that, the video's too long, I lost interest every time the song paused for the latest update of the pointless story and 'You've been a very bad girl Gaga' is so creepy that it will definitely give me nightmares at some point in my life. Aside from these issues, the video is in my opinion testimony that product placement in music videos should be illegal! Yes it's classic crazy Gaga and I do like the 'woman power' fantasy concept at times but I'd rather watch a simple, sexy Beyonce video than sit through Gaga's latest offering again. I don't hate it, I'm just not under the Gaga spell. Some have touted it as 'the successor to Michael Jackson's Thriller' - as if. She is innovative and controversial but she's definitely not there yet. The video is an explosion of violence, sex, irony and colour, yet somehow it's still dull. Succinctly put, the video by the pair is 10 minutes of visual diarrhea and I'm still waiting for Gaga to win me over.

We arrived at Amika early, but no one could have anticipated the huge queues outside - the P Diddy hype had spread across London like wildfire (thanks mainly to the invention of Blackberry!) As I stood outside I saw so many people hanging around the door trying to blag their way in without queueing or paying, 90% of whom were sent all the way to the back of the ever-growing queue after being told in no uncertain terms that if everyone else was going to stand in line, they would have to aswell. Now, I'm definitely not a fan of queueing and it was pretty damn cold outside, but the second I arrived at the venue I could see that the contacts I had inside the club were stressed out of their minds trying to organise such a busy night. I don't get why people don't realise that EVERYBODY knows someone. Some girls I saw wasted almost half an hour hanging around in the cold calling some unknown promoter who was 'definitely inside' and 'said we wouldn't have to queue.' So what love? These same girls did the walk of shame to the back and waited for over an HOUR. Now that's slipping! There's less shame in queueing if you ask me.
Anyway, the vibe inside was amazing - we had some drinks in the main room and then went into VIP with Mr 'Partywhore' Joe Caulfield. It was at this point in the night where I received what I have to say was the most amazing and sexual kiss on the cheek of my entire life from the Partywhore, what a lucky girl.....! I drank my usual vodka and cranberry and was showing Clem's brother Ernest some dance moves on the sofas until I realised that the VIP room was pretty empty compared to earlier in the night. That's when I realised that I'd missed the arrival of Diddy, who, contrary to the belief of cynics and haters alike, had made the appearance that Clemface promised. I went to the main room where I saw Diddy going hard in a roped off section in the main room and decided in true Miss Colley fashion that THAT is where I needed to be. I somehow made my way to the front, spotted Clem and the lovely Mo Samba and was allowed onto Diddy's table to party with the star. Diddy had tooo many bottles of Moet and Ace of Spades and I even got to hold one of his sparklers. It was pretty amazing. At one point I found myself right next to him and took my chance for a pic. So here it is, the party princess and Mr P Diddy himself. Dont hate bitches xxx

She was just my holiday pics of the day but wow I love this girl. She's my best friend, the most beautiful girl in the world and the best thing that has ever happened to me. She's like my soul mate and I can't wait to celebrate her birthday with her this weekend. We've had sad times and really fun times (more of the latter) including random after parties followed by days on yachts, but she's always there for me when I need her. She's my angel.
Friday..wet look leggings and a lace body
Saturday..suede fringed hotpants and a black body
My weekend was pretty much INSANE. I worked out that I spent 20 hours partying and 20 hours in bed asleep. FYI this is not enough sleep for one weekend! And my feet hurt. But I had such an amazing time celebrating my sister's birthday on Friday and my girl Rose's birthday on Saturday.
On Saturday my lovely Southampton beauties had planned to come and party in Movida for Rose Thomas's birthday and all was going to plan until I got a phonecall saying they had broken down on the M3 on the way here! As any friend would I abandoned my pre-party beauty session and jumped in the car with no eye make up and one set of nails painted to go and rescue them. The girls still looked amazing despite being stood on the side of the road for over an HOUR. Now that's what I call fabulous. We had a party in the car on the way up to central and eventually arrived at Movida after midnight. (After a quick make up session in the car for me!) We had an amazing time partying with MillionHeir PR and I think the story proves how dedicated we are to our partying ways!
