Ever heard of Anna Lomax? She's got one of those names that rolls off the tongue and makes you feel like surely you've met her before - in an East London underground club or on the streets of Brick Lane - even though you probably haven't. But it's not the plausible sense of deja vu that makes Ms Lomax so unforgettable it's her art pieces, an amalgamation of bizarre influences from pound shops and junk to today's pop culture. The South London illustration graduate has already racked up an impressive client list since her transition into the professional world in 2007, including Nike, Topshop, Selfridges and Garage Magazine.

Her pieces are fantastic, seriously cool. They seem to make no sense at all but make complete sense entirely. A modern Alice-in-Wonderland-whimsical spin on everyday objects and the world today. I think that what I love so much about her work is the fashion influences. Her art is aesthetically pleasing from the point of view of inspiration - like it belongs on some kind of mood board, a fashion students dream, alongside conceptual pictures of buildings and blooming flowers. It's not the kind of art you pay an extortionate price for, hang in your front room and pay no notice to from thereon forward - a symbol of status and wealth rather than an eye for the fantastical. It's the kind of art that makes you want to put on that fuchsia lipstick because Why not, it's a Wednesday? It's the kind of art that makes you want to wear neon trousers to work because casual Friday should be every day. Ultimately, it's my kind of art. And, since I'm an outspoken, opinionated Loudmouth, it should be your kind of art too. Just saying.

My love affair with Missguided continues. After seeing their hotter than hot Project Ibiza campaign, I'm all revved up for summer. Who doesn't want to parade around and pose amongst smoke bombs on a sexy Balearic island? I for one am wholeheartedly for those kinds of activities. Although I will not be sunning myself on the white isle this year, I will be looking to the Missguided edit for fashspiration. A little tanning oil and a prime spot in Hyde Park will do just as good.

This season I'm pioneering 3 key trends: oriental flair, neon pop and urban cool. I'm thinking floaty kimono style jackets, sports jerseys and super stunning maxis. So, here's my edit from the go to brand for all of you darlings and divas out there. If you're looking for insta-cool, you're looking in the right place.

It is undeniably a fact that every living, breathing, normally functioning woman will at some point inadvertently find herself browsing the virtual shelves of Asos looking for something shiny and new to top off the day - which is exactly what I was doing this fine Friday, when I discovered the joy of Funky Bling. Brainchild of Tatum Mazzilli (cool name, huh?), the accessories are punchy, fun and just the right amount of acid rave 90s thug to be supa-dupa cool. Think Jenny from the Block bling bling with an extra side of sassy and a twist of ghetto fabulous flava. Did I mention they're embellished with Swarovski crystals? I just can't get enough and I've fallen hard for their fabulicious headgear. The Billy Badass bandanas are edgy enough to make any festival outfit killer and the neon pop beanies make me want to join a girl gang and become best friends with Brooke Candy. Ok, so maybe that's unlikely but it never hurt to play dress up.
