Style Diaries

It's no secret that Tantrum believe that the real trailblazers of the fashion world are the kids on the street (yes, you beauts, we're talking about YOU guys!) 
From London to Tokyo and all the places in between, it's the well-dressed, anything-but-average Joes that are overtaking celebrities as our personal style icons. And it appears that Simone Werle seems to think so too, with the release of her book, 'Style Diaries'. 

The immensely colourful little book features some of the most prevalent fashion bloggers worldwide and gives us a quirky insight into their individual style as well as offbeat, bitesize little chunks of info about them, their personalities and their lives. 

Showcasing almost 50 different bloggers from Vienna to L.A, 'Style Diaries' is sort of like a miniature fashion bible, providing countless amounts of fashion-spiration to the masses. And believe us, this is one book that's well worth keeping in your bedside drawer. 

Style Diaries by Simone Werle is published by Prestel and available here

Taking Back Sunday: taking back music for good.

When we heard Taking Back Sunday were releasing another album we headed straight for their back catalogue to tide us through the wait - but the waiting is no more, and not a moment too soon. Their self titled fifth album is a triumphant return to what the band do best - anthemic rock.

First single El Paso (above) gave a taster of what to expect, with a killer tune and the trademark TBS swagger, and songs like Sad Savior and Call Me In The Morning take things a little slower without losing an inch of that attitude . One of our favourite things about this band is that the songs are more than skin deep, with lyrics that look pretty on paper, but with real bite in the heat of the song, and this album continues that awesome tradition.

Highlights definitely have to be This Is All Now - which showcase seductive vocals and a stadium worthy chorus - and Best Places To Be A Mom, with its guitar driven melody and headbanging potential.

Taking Back Sunday is an outstanding album in a stellar back catalogue, proving that this is still a band to be reckoned with.

We all know, no matter what age you are, good skin is always in style. Us girls are always on the lookout for that trusted skincare range that will nurture our skin, help prevent premature ageing (eek!) and brighten up all those tired, dull and lifeless days. Not to mention the effects of those late nights!

Elemis, the leading British skincare brand, have taken the hassle out of skincare with their gorgeous new 'freshskin' range designed specifically for young skin. From the extensive research that's gone into developing this range to the show-stopping bright fuchsia packaging, we think 'freshskin' is an absolute winner. Elemis have been helping keep adult faces looking fresh for years now, so we're really psyched that they think young skin deserves special treatment too.

We have teamed up with Elemis to offer one lucky reader an amazing prize of all of their wonderful ‘freshskin’ products. To be in with a chance of winning, simply follow Tantrum on twitter and tweet the following message "I want to keep my skin looking sweet and fresh with @elemisfreshskin & @tantrummagazine !".
