Purple Haze: Nicole Richie for Paper Magazine

The lovely Nicole Richie has just appeared on the cover of the May issue of Paper magazine with Coveteur. The photo shoot took place in the back garden of her Hollywood home in which she flaunts her lilac hair, personal style and her perfect life. During the accompanying interview, Nicole discusses her lifestyle, her parenting, her home and of course her garden. Don't take notice of her purple hair and tattoos... She is still very much a traditional mom.

In the interview, she discusses her daily routine in which she gets up at half 5 in the morning to have her alone time. The 32-year-old is a mother of two, 6-year-old daughter Harlow and 4-year-old Son Sparrow, spends this alone time in the garden where she grows a variety of vegetables and fruits.

"We have apple trees, blueberry trees, lemon trees, strawberries, butter lettuce, arugula, sugar snap peas, tomatoes, carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, kale, spinach, mint, thyme, oregano and sage." It is clearly evident that her whole family take care of themselves and make sure the food they put into their bodies are extremely healthy.

This is one of my favourite photo, in which it shows off her amazing purple hair... She took the plunge to colour her hair a few months ago, and since then she has been the hair inspiration of many girls around the world. If you ever felt bored with your hair, this interview might just enhance that feeling.

Nicole on L.A style.... "I love L.A style because seasons don't really play a role. I'm able to wear whatever I want, whenever I want. It gives me the opportunity to experiment and try new looks" I love this.... This type of attitude is clearer in bigger cities, nobody cares what you wear!

Spring has most certainly sprung, and that is evident from the colours not only in the flowers in the back but in the amazing colours she is wearing. She looks radiant in Valentino, Oscar de la Renta and Marchesa.

The former super party girl and "Simple Life" reality star, has come full circle and has become a distinguished designer, model and hollywood star. Have a sneak peek at some of the behind the scene pictures she shared on her blog and instagram pages. She has become a "grown-up", as she said and has done it her way and found her freedom through her style and brand.

Wedding Personal Style Post

So my lovely grandparents, Michael and Joyce, got married on Thursday evening. Both being in their 60's and getting married is kinda cute. Their service was on in the Salthill Hotel in Galway. The entire service was so personal to them- it had their favourite songs played between readings and they wrote their own vows. They beamed at each other the whole ay through..... They are very much in love.

The weather was fab and my sister and I took a few snaps in the house before we left. Rhianna wore a dress she bought from River Island and a little cardigan she got in a shop calld Alook, which can be found in the Eyre Square shopping Centre. Her flats were from Penneys/ Primark.

I wore a dress that I had brought last year for my 21st birthday and a matching cardigan, both of which I bought in Oasis in Cork city. My strappy wedges were from Penneys/ Primark. I got them a few weeks ago and they were a bargain.... I'm sure they will be coming back im stock because they practically ran off the shelves.

Make up selfie- I got my amazing pink lipstick in Claire's accessories in Galway. It's bright colour matched my belt and handbag perfectly. I wore brown eyeshadow and plenty of mascara to make my eyes pop a little.

I got to wear my sunglasses which doesn't happen a lot in Ireland. My dad got them for me as a gift in Spain. They are super comfy and are always my 'go-to' pair.

My hair was done by my amazing friend and soon-to-be super hairstylist to the stars, Sophie- who did some amazing curls with the GHD and pinned back the sides. I probably should have left them down because that would have been perfect to hide my tears during the service and speeches.

This is the detail of my dress. It's very oriental with old Asian houses and gardens in the pattern, along with some river scenes. This is an amazing dress for summer, it can be worn with sandals which is always a bonus.

My nail polish is 'Models Own' and the colour is grapejuice. This was a great colour and the polish lasted unchipped for about two days and thats good for me.

My jewellery for the night was just a few rings and a bright pink bangle, nothing flashy. The eagle ring is from H&M and came in a packet with two others. The "love" midi ring is from River Island and is still in stock in the Galway shop last I checked.

I ended up changing my shoes into these stunning blue sandals from New Look. My little sister owns them, she got them last week and wore them for about an hour before she took them off. Poor thing couldn't walk anymore- I took full advantage of them.... Plus they matched my outfit.

And of course, champagne on arrival was a perk. I love this part of the evening.

Anyways, hope you enjoyed the post

Coachella 2014: The Style, Weekend 1

So it's that time of year again, when Coachella valleys are filled with music and my soul weeps because it is another year that has past in which I was not there. It's one of those festivals where celebrities come to watch other celebrities play music and set the fashion trends for the up and coming summer festival season.... If some of these celebrity styles don't influence your summer look something is terribly wrong with this situation.

Its a place where some unfortunate people don't have much mirror space for their make up application but they still manage to look amazing! Celebrities being celebrities, have make up artist and stylists in their campsite or should i say in the Guess hotel, but these are the people we look towards to set the festival trends.

Jared Leto, rocked out in his festival gear, and looked the part wearing great patterns.

This head piece may not have been worn on a celebrity head but it was too cute not to include in the post.... I'm heading to Longitude in July, purely to see Disclosure and the 1975 but if I could find a headband like this I would be in my element.

Cut off jean shorts were a massive trend this year like they are every year, wore here by Sarah Hyland with a cut out t-shirt and a cute lace bralet.

Kate Bosworth, the queen of festival style arrived in this little number making every girl very jealous of her stunning figure.

Jared Leto look number 2, really shows why he is my best dressed celebrity. Those pants make me one very big green eyed monster- i want a pair. And the mix matched patterns, animal print and tartan, really look amazing. Love him.... Love this style.

The two Jenner ladies were very close to getting crowded best dressed... Kylie in my opinion looked the better of the two lovely ladies, with that lace bodice and the flower garland on her head. But her older sister did win out on one or two of the outfit wars, more pictures below.

Katy Perry and her green hair, I'm not sure about the colour to be honest, it reminds me of a blonde dye-job gone wrong.

Kellan Lutz wore this outfit on day 3.... What a stud.

Eeeeck this friendship is so amazing that there are no words.

Alessandra Ambrosio's nails made me very jealous, I love the black out line.

Sienna, Poppy and Cara, all in one photo, enjoying a good giggle in the sun.

Part one of two..... Coachella style.... Giving inspiration to girls all around the world, and making us all jealous at the same time.
