Presenting The Shopcade 2014 Competition Winners!

JEANNINE-DEC-8.12.2014-winners

Earlier this year, we launched three competitions for our loyal following of @Shopcade members to win several amazing prizes for themselves and even for their BFFs! Giving them a shout-out here, we hope they’ve enjoyed the fruits of their labour and we can’t wait to organise even more competitions so more of you can join in the fun!

First up, there’s @jelly-babyvalentino who scooped the prize for our #JDSports competition with her winning #kingoftrainers pic. Brightly lit and well-framed, this well-accessorised girl knew how to catch our eye with her poised yet focused look. Taking home a brand new pair of kicks from JD Sports, we’re in no doubt @jelly-babyvalentino’s slick taste in styling will make her the coolest girl on the block! 

Next, our Bank Fashion wishlist winner @serenasboard put together the winning #BankFashion @Shopcade list which you can check out here. Having styled a combo of slogan and graphic print tees, an on-trend biker and varsity jacket, some converse hi-tops and even menswear pieces she’d like to mix and match, @serenasboard certainly knows how to put the £100 prize to use! With her ‘Wants’ list on Shopcade bursting with the latest grunge and rocker chick looks, we can’t wait to see what other lists she’ll put together.

Last but not least, the lucky winner of our @Shopcade and #F&F competition #FlipTheGrade is none other than @chloebrookes-h. Submitting a #selfie of herself with her BFF in a fabulous prom pose, her winning look gained 169 likes from friends and fellow Shopcaders. Pictured in a stunning sparkling floor-length ball gown with a white clutch purse, @chloebrookes-h is certainly pretty for prom. As her reward, she bagged a day out with her BFF’s as well as £150 from F&F. Not bad, huh?!

For what’s hot on @Shopcade right now, check out our Christmas Gifts lists for friends, family and even your co-workers!

It’s mid July and most of us are about to be set free from school, uni or work to go on our annual holidays! We caught up with Fashion blogger Sarah Ashcroft over milkshake and cupcakes as she tells us her summer plans and how to stay stylish!

So… what are your summer plans, Sarah?

“I’m starting with Cape Verde with my boyfriend and then Turkey with the family. Plans are total relaxation! Sunbathing, laying by the pool and boat rides- though quad bikes have been scheduled in there at some point! I’m also keeping a summer style diary to keep the blog up-to-date”.

What summer trends are you loving right now?

“Everything pink! Loving pastels, co-ords, tropical prints and a bit of neon”

sarahashcroft12

Any summer survival tips you can share with us?

“No-one likes spending their holiday burning and having to dodge the sun. For the past few years I have had a few sessions on a sunbed before going away, which has really helped prepare my skin and get use to some exposure before hitting the sun!”

What’s your favourite drink in the summer?
“My favourite cocktail is an elderflower and cucumber Martini, though I enjoy a cold pint in the sunshine and I love a glass of champagne”.

If taking yourself to Parklife and having a brilliant time isn’t an excuse enough to head to an after party, well how about Scuba celebrating 10 years as Hotflush boss with a headline performance for Drop The Mustard and Ben UFO, who will play a back to back set with Midland.

OK, you’ve got all your excuses right there, get planning your weekend ahead and find the full line-up and tickets here! And if Parklife is new to you then get with the programme and grab your tickets here.
