Summer in LA has started heating up, so finding easy cotton pieces to combat the temperatures is key. And when I began my hunt for a pretty Summery dress, I found the online shop - Les Femmes. Not only was everything curated exactly to my taste (the logo alone is perfection), but it helped break me of a very bad habit that online shopping has given me.

Big brand online shopping. I'm definitely guilty of visiting sites that have thousands of items, and then hunting through page after page until I find something I like. It's basically like browsing through a giant department store and seeing if I can find something that fits me. Sites like ASOS, and ZARA, and Topshop all give me that feeling, but it's a lazy choice to sort through pages of styles and hope that a piece will be 'me'. And while I'm not totally knocking shopping like that (it's still great when you need a bridesmaid dress in a specific color, or are hunting for cool weather pieces), it's not how I shop IRL. 

If I want to do some shopping in LA, I visit boutiques, vintage stores, and small curated shops. It's more personal, and I feel more comfortable. So if that's how I shop in person, why wasn't I doing that online? Again - probably laziness. So I'm trying to break that habit. To gravitate towards shops that feel like that perfect boutique around the corner, and Les Femmes is just that. They have a commitment to carrying labels that use sustainable fabrics, and believe in the philosophy of slow fashion.

I want to move towards this idea - of slow fashion - and slowly weed out those brands and stores that don't fit that philosophy. I'm not saying I'll be perfect at this, it's a hard transition, and I'll probably still occasionally cave and shop a big brand store. But doing less of that, and more of this, will make such a difference in my closet.

    Mayweather vs McGregor Fight Date, Time and TV Channel: Our guide reveals what you really need to know about the year’s biggest boxing showdown.

  6. The family had developed their Canelo vs ggg live fight country's finest two amateur boxers, twins trained in self-defence by their elder brothers during a war-torn upbringing. Only one could represent Kazakhstan at the 2004 Olympics and their parents, disregarding the younger twin's superiority, chose the eldest solely based on age.

    Max Golovkin's boxing career ended with that decision. Aged 22, he was the best prospect in Kazakhstan and won every tournament he entered - unless he stepped aside for his twin to share the limelight. That twin, Gennady, was now heading to the Olympics armed with just a handful of Max's in-ring ability.

    Karaganda, in local tongue, translates as "black city". The coal industry in Kazakhstan's fourth-largest city provided a humble Canelo vs ggg income for locals but, under Soviet rule, also meant the area was exploited for what little it was worth. A nearby military base meant the people of Karaganda had two choices for employment - the mines or the army.

    Is everyone in Karaganda bred tough? "Yes, absolutely," Gennady Golovkin exclusively told Sky Sports. "I like the people of Karaganda. People are smart, they are true people - not fake."His father was a miner but his two elder brothers joined the army.

    Vadim and Sergey taught their younger, twin brothers how to defend themselves with their fists - Gennady and Max became a handful buoyed by a fascination with late-night American boxing, idolising Sugar Canelo vs Golovkin Ray Robinson.Vadim and Sergey died in action in the early-1990s with no explanation offered for their disappearance. Gennady and Max, now the elder statesmen in the family, took their fighting skills to amateur boxing tournaments across Eastern Europe.

    "He was very good, he was much better than me," Gennady remembered of his twin. Some claim, considering Gennady had 350 amateur bouts and lost just five. Just before the Olympic Games he said 'okay, maybe you try first'," Gennady recalled. "I said 'no, I'll try second'." The 2004 Games in Athens provided the Golovkin twins with bigger worries than nearly one thousand combined previous opponents.
