Diamonds are Forever

So the Diamond Jubilee weekend is upon us, so i thought i'd do a little guide to what's on the market to help you celebrate in true style.

Everything you will ever need to feel patriotic but well on trend, can be found at Motel Rocks - a brand i'm a proud student ambassador for. They've created the fab union jack print in brights and pastels, so there really is something for everyone.

The base for these garments is white, so will go with a multitude of skintones and keep you cool on this (hopefully) warm long weekend! Whether you want to flash a bit of skin or cover up a little more, there's plenty of option with these garments. Why not rock a classic Motel mini in the gorgeous, super flattering form of the Zoe dress. The racer style straps keep it flattering whether you're broad or slim and the classic bodycon material skims any dirty secrets! If that's not quite up your street (party), why not pair the fab Vicky dip gem vest with a pair of jeans or shorts, giving a more subtle Jubilee style but equally patriotic, and on trend. If not there's always the Union Jack print leggings and body and if you're feeling really brave why not pair them together for the ultimate Jubilee outfit! Go on, i dare ya!

If you happen to be in London on Tuesday 5th June keep an eye out for the Motel Rocks army in the big parade. You won't be able to miss them because they'll be sporting the fab Motel Union Jack Print. They'll be joining thousands of people during the parade and will be handing out flyers and Motel Rocks goodie bags, as well as taking snaps for live coverage on their social media sites, so go add them on Twitter for all the latest Jubilee pics!

Are you celebrating in the garden, or in the street, this weekend? Well, if you are there are all sorts of products you can use to get your party into full Jubilee swing!

Here's everything you'll need for a fab street party! You can't throw any outdoors event without some bunting and why not decorate for the occasion with this fab union jack bunting from Marks & Spencer? Why not go all out and get matching tumblers, cake stand and tea/coffee/sugar canisters? I adore the 'right royal knees up' scatter cushion - you could use them for sitting on the ground, for making your garden furniture far more comfortable or just for decorating your garden. The deckchair has actually been produced for the Olympics we'll be hosting this Summer, but i think it's perfect for any outdoor occasion and can be used multiple times during the Summer months. If your garden party plans are ruined by the rain why not decorate your house with these fab king of hearts cushions and pour a right royal cup of tea out of this gorgeous vintage style teapot.

How will you be spending your Jubilee weekend?
