Pretty Little Thing have worked with some of the coolest gals around, and now it's Hailey Baldwin's time to shine.

Resident 'It Girl' and fiancé of none other than Bieber himself, Hailey is one of the most sought after supermodels in town.

Who better to show off the gorgeous new Christmas campaign? We are SHOOKETH. The diamonds, the glitter, the sequins…we're already lusting over them.

CEO of the company, Umar Kamani, has revealed how delighted he is with having Hailey as the new face, and we don't blame him:

“We are so excited to be working with Hailey on our Christmas campaign. After such a successful year for the brand there wasn’t anyone else better suited to see our 2018 out with a bang. I have huge admiration for Hailey and her career as one of the most successful models in the industry."

"She has been such a pleasure to work with as the face of this collection and I can’t wait for you all to see this campaign when it launches early next week"

The campaign revolves around party season, featuring pieces dripping in diamantes for a dress code that's ultra glamorous. Get ready to unleash some heavy metal with crystal-embellished gowns and hardcore party dresses, we actually CANNOT WAIT.

If diamonds are forever ladies, these clothes will never be leaving your wardrobe. You'll be the first one spotted on the dancefloor with all of these glittery, shiny pieces that were made purely to stand out.

The collection features indulgent oversized blazer dresses, risky cut out minis and exploding sequin maxis, not to mention a dress for every Christmas party. Figure hugging jumpsuits, cycling shorts and crop tops also feature as part of the statement campaign.

The collection will be available in UK sizes 6-26, so it's got something for everyone. Get your eyes on the prize, huns.

The Biebs also made sure to leave a sneaky Instagram comment on Baldwin's post: 'Holy crap this is hot'. He's not wrong…

When this drops next Wednesday, you'll have to be prepared to grab it before it's gone. No doubt every gal in the universe will be drooling over the sequins, us included.

PrettyLittleThing starring Hailey Baldwin will launch exclusively on www.PrettyLittleThing.com on Tuesday 6th November.

OK, so we're not entirely sure how we feel about it being quite so Christmasy quite so early. 

November 6; we're only just over the excitement of Halloween when suddenly bags of yuletide delights and oodles of festive cheer has flooded shops, streets and homes.

Ho, ho, ho – or bah humbug?

Well, while another six weeks of glittery goodness and mulled wine-infused air might prove taxing, we're today feeling sufficiently good-humoured to embrace the spirit of the season.

And certainly, we couldn't help but get oh-so unreasonably giddy at the sight of the Brown Thomas Christmas window on Grafton Street.

Unveiled last night, this year the theme is Store Of Wonders. As BTs explains: "We have gone back to the simple pleasure of a great story well told and have decided to celebrate the art of storytelling.

"We are doing fairytales and enchanted stories with a Brown Thomas twist." 

Below, we bring you the gorgeous windows – which, it has to be said, are particularly stunning for 2015. In the meantime… 'jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way…'

Just when you thought it was safe to go to work again… you realise that the trains won't be running tomorrow morning.

Yup, a total of 41 Dart services, 45 Dublin Commuter services, 30 Cork Commuter services, and 42 Intercity/regional services will in all likelihood be cancelled (unless last-minute crises talks prove successful). Gulp!

Taking place from 6am to 9am as a result of industrial action by drivers, it's sure to cause commuters – to say the least – plenty of Friday mayhem. 

Trains that leave before the planned strike at 6am will continue to travel as normal, Irish Rail has confirmed. 

During a similar strike held last month, disgruntled passengers may remember that Hailo had one of its busiest mornings ever as thousands sought out alternative ways to get to work and college.

Today, the taxi company was encouraging anyone hitting the road before 9am tomorrow to plan their journey carefully.

From 7am to 10am it's also offering a helpful 20 percent off journeys – an incentive which proved hugely popular last time.

"The 20 percent discount codes will be displayed on our Facebook and Twitter profiles as soon as they are live," it added in a statement.

In addition, Dublin Bus, Bus Éireann and Luas tram services will all be operating normally – albeit at full capacity so make sure to allow extra time for our trip.

Hurrah for pumpkins! The giant veg have now hit supermarkets, getting us oh-so excited for Halloween.

But just WHAT should we do with the leftover sticky, sweet mess of orange flesh and that tough, waxy exterior? Because all too often it all just ends up in the bin come November 1.

Fear not! There are actually loads of different things you can do with your spooky pumpkin once Halloween concludes.

Here, SHEmazing! rounds up our favourites tricks…

 

1) In the kitchen:

Pumpkin fries are a delicious, healthier-alternative to their potato counterparts:

  • Cut the flesh into thick chips 1-2cm thick.
  • Wash and pat dry with kitchen roll before transferring to a bowl.
  • Sprinkle generously with salt and leave aside to draw out any excess water.
  • Place on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Lightly drizzle with a vegetable oil of your choice.
  • Bake at 200C for 40 minutes before serving immediately.

 

Roasted pumpkin hummus is a welcomed twist:

  • Cut the pumpkin flesh into cubes, drizzle with vegetable oil and bake on parchment paper for 35/40 minutes at 200C.
  • When cooled, add to a food processor. Top with a can of drained chickpeas, two cloves of garlic, two tablespoons of lemon juice and ground cumin to taste.
  • When the motor is running, add in about 60mls of virgin olive oil.
  • Remove and dress with chopped parsley and black pepper before serving.

     

2) In the bathroom:

Make a pumpkin spice body spruce to banish dry, rough skin as we head into the winter months:

  • Take a mixing bowl and add in 400g of brown sugar, 100g of white sugar and a sprinkle of ground cinnamon, nutmeg or clove. Mix together.
  • Gradually add in 100mls of almond or coconut oil until you have a damp, solid mass.
  • Transfer to a re-sealable jar and keep in the fridge for up to eight weeks.
  • Apply with exfoliating gloves to clean skin while in the shower and rinse afterwards.

 

3) In the water:

The more ambitious individual might fancy fashioning their giant pumpkin into a boat: a pumpkinfest in Maine in the US runs an annual water-based competition with participants racing in hollowed out pumpkins.

This year’s event, the 10th pumkin boat regatta, kicked off last week and will run until Monday. But don’t worry – the 2016 festival is already earmarked for 12 months’ time.

 

4) In the living room:

Painted pumpkin seeds can be dried out and used to create gorgeous Christmas tree decorations:

  • Wash the seeds, dry thoroughly and then toast on a low heat in the oven for 10 minutes. Leave these to sit overnight.
  • Take some cardboard and cut into Christmas tree shapes. Next glue the dried seeds to the template, with the pointed end facing downward to create a pinecone effect.
  • Allow the glue to dry before applying green, red, silver or gold spray-paint.
  • Finish with glitter or top with ribbons to hang from the tree.

 

5) In the party spirit:

Pumpkin-infused vodka or gin is a delightful as a seasonal liquor or in cocktails:

  • Dry roast pumpkin cubes on parchment paper for around 25/30minutes.
  • Decant 750mls of vodka or gin into a re-sealable jar and then add the pumpkin cubes, along with cloves, cinnamon and nutmeg.
  • Allow to sit for three weeks in a cool, dark place.
  • Strain out the liquid through a cheese cloth so you’re left with a clear, orange infusion.
  • Keep in the fridge and serve on its own or as part of a cocktail.

 

6) In the garden:

Simply rough chop any remaining pumpkin and work it into garden soil to act as a fertiliser. And why not sow your own for next year’s festivities?

Plant in late April in a greenhouse, conservatory or even on a window sill indoors, before transferring outside in late May or early June. Be careful not to over-water but use plenty of compost. Watch out for hungry slugs and snails too.
