Style for Life with Judith Keys


AnYone who follows me on instagram will know that I am guilty of posting regular pictures of the meals I make. I am always looking up new recipes and researching new ‘superfoods’ to try as I pretend I’m a top chef. recently I have started buying kale, a form of cabbage, which has been nicknamed ‘queen of the greens’. The health benefits of kale are endless; it is very high in many essential nutrients and has zero fat along with being low in calories. I tend to cook and serve it alongside fish or meat then drizzle with a little soy sauce and sesame seeds. I have also recently been adding it to smoothies along with frozen and fresh fruit for a real health kick. Who said students couldn’t be healthy?


AS a celebrity obsessed nation, one thing that always grabs our attention is a famous pregnancy and we spend the next nine months analysing how they dress their bump. The reality star and girlfriend of Kanye West, Kim Kardashian has been getting a lot of negative attention in the press regarding her pregnancy shape and appearance. I don’t like to judge but I do think she has made quite a few disastrous choices when it comes to maternity wear. Unless you’re supermodel tall with a neat bump, let’s face it wearing a tight orange leather dress is never going to look flattering. I think Kim K needs to take some style tips from other pregnant celebrities such a Rochelle Humes, Channing Tatum’s wife Jenna Dewan and of course not forgetting Kate Middleton. They have perfected the casual laid back look often accessorizing with a floppy hat and always get it right with creating a lady-like demure look for the evenings.

are dominating footwear for Spring Summer 2013. Yes that does mean no more blistered and crippled feet and walking like a giraffe on ice, it’s time for comfort and sophistication. from classic white courts to bright colour block sandals they look great worn with anything from skinny jeans to a pretty summer dress.

After years of practically living in skinny jeans it’s safe to say I’m ready for a change. So for the past few months I have been scraping >> together my pennies and building up a nice little wardrobe of

trousers. they have been my best friend in those panic ‘What do I wear?’ situations when the dress code is ‘smart casual’ or when there is a last minute night out and you haven’t tanned or shaved your legs. (We have all been there.) I absolutely love a laid back tailored look so I tend to look for a fitted, high waisted style with a tapered leg. I team them with anything from a buttoned up shirt and blazer to a tucked in baggy t-shirt and woolly jumper. You will see a lot of monochrome and neutral styles on the high street, which are great for dressing up or down but do not be afraid of th the brighter and floral patterns as these make a great statement and I can guarantee many compliments. I have selected some of my favourite trousers that I have my eye on.
