Top 10 Favourite Beauty/Fashion Websites

I think 90% of my time online is spent jealously browsing gorgeous fashion blogs with a style sense I can't quite perfect, and filling online shopping baskets full of brightly coloured florals and the perfect skinny jeans.  Here are my top picks that I think you should check out!

Fashion Blogs
1. Cupcakes and Cashmere - Emily is my style idol.  Her romantic-bohemian-preppy style captures everything I love about fashion.  I have an embarrassing crush on her wardrobe. 
2. Style Scrapbook - Andy is just beautiful - with an eagle's eye for the perfect details to every outfit.  She's got a great casual style that is very wearable and chic.
