Boohoo prize winner, Christine was over the moon when she won an all expenses paid trip to Paris over the Easter weekend. However what she didn’t know was that she would come back engaged! That’s right, we were very a excited office this morning at boohoo HQ, when we learnt Christine’s boyfriend popped the question in the most romantic city in the world and she said YES!
But what did Christine have to say about the experience? ’We had an amazing time in Paris. The four star hotel was lovely and all the staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel had themed rooms so we swapped rooms half way through our stay: our first room was Eiffel Tower themed and the second was based around the Arc de Triomphe. Both were brilliant!’
'We spent the first day shopping and found a shopping mall which had seven floors of designer shops. The second day we went to Monmatre in the morning, which is an old fashioned part filled with cobbled streets and artists. In the afternoon, we took the metro to the Eiffel Tower and walked up 800+ stairs then caught a lift all the way to the top and the views were great!'
'The third day my boyfriend took me to a jewellers and proposed to me! We picked out the ring together and are over the moon. Thank you all again for making our dream holiday become true!' Congratulations Christine from boohoo!
Do you think that you are an apple shape? If you are, you will have a rounded tummy and a larger chest. Monochrome is one of the biggest trends of Spring/Summer 2012 and is very wearable for you apple shapes out there. The best shape dress for you is the wrap dress as it gathers at the waist and skims over your tummy. The multi-directional stripes will draw the eye away from your tummy streamlining your figure.
Leeds born Laura Mosby, 23 from Rothwell has just scooped the prize of a lifetime with a new Fiat 500 courtesy of online fashion retailer boohoo.com
Laura who works as a receptionist for Rudding Park Harrogate is sure to be the talk of the town as she drives around in the car of her dreams, a boohoo electric pink Fiat 500. Laura simply entered a competition on the boohoo Facebook page to win the car and is now the very happy winner of the nifty little motor.
Laura says “My current car is in desperate need of a little TLC with a hefty repairs bill in the not so distant future, winning the car of my dreams means so much as a new car was financially out of the question. Winning the boohoo Fiat 500 has been a lifesaver for me. I’m a singer so my car takes me and my equipment between gigs and given how my old car was on its last legs, this car couldn’t come at a better time.
It is also allowing me to visit my best friend and her new baby who live in Hastings. My old car wouldn’t have made it so my first adventure is a road trip down south. I’m also attending a few festivals where I’m performing so look out for me in my bright pink boohoo car! I’ve even named her Bella-Boo – every good car needs a name!”
Didn’t win the car this time? Don’t worry - Fiat re also selling a bespoke boohoo Fiat 500! Check it our here.

Meet the girls that make up one of the biggest up and coming girl bands, StooShe: Courtney (middle), Alexandra (left) and Karis (right). We spoke to the girls last week to hear what they have to say about their style, music and what they are up to next!
Step One: Make sure your make-up is completed before you apply your lashes. A handy hint for those of you who have a steady hand is to apply your lashes before you apply your eyeliner. If not line your eyes before your lashes. Once you are happy with your make up, measure the lashes against your eye and trim if necessary.
Step Two: Now apply eyelash glue above your upper lash line and wait thirty seconds until the glue becomes tacky.
One of our favourite fashion bloggers, Tala Samman from MyFashDiary has pulled together some of her top Spring/Summer pieces from boohoo.com. Down to Tala: ‘The little white dress is just as essential as the little black dress. Plus, those red chunky heels are so comfortable, they give any outfit the perfect pop!’
If you are an apple shape, then you will have a rounded tummy, larger boobs and you will most probably have great legs. To make perfect prints work for you, try teaming a striped tailored jacket with the best shape denim for you, the bootcut jean. A tailored blazer will give you a great silhouette with strong shoulders and the jeans will even out your curves.
