Fashion Illustrator Of The Moment

Illustrator of the moment Cat Novak has worked with some heavy weight clients. She’s even worked with E! personality Ali Fedotowsky and right now her celebrity sketches, animations and supermodel illustrations have everybody obsessing over fashion and beauty from a new angle. Even ELLE are liking her Instagram pictures. Cat is a truly talented individual and recently I was privileged enough to interview her (check out the portrait illustration she kindly gave me). 1. You’ve worked with some incredible talent, from BERTA bridal to to E!…

Get A Fresh Skin Breeze On Your Way Through Town

You’ll have seen recently on Twitter that I’ve been raving about a Skinbreeze facial that I had at North London’s Beauty Rehab. After reading all about it in InStyle, New! magazine, MailOnline and Cosmpolitan etc, I was thrilled to be given the opportunity to try it out. Trust me, if it’s good enough for the most vain man on TV – (MIC’s Spencer Matthews), Binky Felstead, Louise Thompson, TOWIE’s Bobby Norris, Lewis Bloor and James Diags, even glamour…

And They Lived Happily Ever After

I couldn’t leave the engagement story at that so here’s what happened afterwards and what we did on our final day in Rome. So after THAT eventful moment, we of course rang our family and decided to go celebrate with some bubbles and good music (above). Only we could manage to stumble across the only bar/club to play US hip hop and RNB with throw backs to Sean Paul and early Drake in Rome. Waking up the…

Forget The Eyes, It’s All About The Lip

Time to take a break from engagement and love because for those living in this glorious fast past fashion capital of the UK (London), you would be hard pressed to not know it was National Lipstick Day recently. Thousands all over the country were using social media to upload their green, blue, black and orange lips. Although I’ve in the past been partial to a black lipstick or a clementine hue (more on that next…

An Exploration Of Real Love

Falling in love is one of those weird things in life. It can on occasion be glamorised, exploited commercially and is everywhere in the media. You only have to look at films, TV programmes, books and magazines to see it’s a common, important theme. Love can consume you, make you happy and according to Google, in 2012 it was the most searched question on their engine. Questions about love can arise surrounding authenticity (is Kimye real or…

The Engagement

So it’s official, Daniel and I are going to be married and I’m without doubt the happiest girl in the world! For those who follow me on Instagram and Twitter, you’ll know that it all took place during a romantic break to Italy’s capital city, Rome. It took me completely by surprise. Before a trip to Paris earlier this year, Daniel stood inside St Pancras and told me categorically that he would not be proposing…

When In Rome

You may have noticed that I haven’t been active much recently. For many reasons; work load, a trip to Rome and best of all – I’m engaged! I can’t wait to share all of the fantastic details with you but first I had to write a little introductory post on my trip to Rome. As a treat for my fabulous boyfriend (now fiancé), I booked a long weekend to this historical, glamorous city; just for the two…

We’re All Mad Here | Afternoon Tea

Life doesn’t get much better than when you’re sat out in the sun in the garden of one of London’s most fabulously surreal hotels, sipping on peppermint and chilli tea with a cake in the other hand. The Sanderson hotel is undoubtably one of the most wonderful hotels in London and with its true ‘escapism’ feel, you wouldn’t think you’re actually only a stones throw away from Tottenham Court Road and London’s busiest shopping streets. The hotels…

That Girl Just Hit Me With Her Armani Bags!

Ladies you know the struggle. The struggle is real. Payday shopping on Regent Street means heavy bags, chipped nails, arm ache and endless apologies to passers by as you squeeze (slash, heavily push) past them laden down with your shopping, knocking everyone out of the way en route. Any fashionista knows that every shopping trip needs at least one coffee stop too (or at least one cocktail stop at Aqua in Argyll Street if you’re me) and…

Well, Aren’t You Charming?

When on holiday, unless you’re filming for a reality series on E! chances are you’re likely to leave the diamonds and pearls at home and bask in the sunlight wearing either minimal gold pieces or jewellery made from thread and charms. Well when it came to the latter, I couldn’t wait to show off my new goodies from the unlikeliest of places (for me), Etsy. It was at breakfast while waiting for a fashion client…

While I Was Sleeping

After a beautiful holiday together in Turkey, my love had the amazing opportunity to head off to Crete with his Philadelphian friend Josh and his super cool parents Robs and Jax. Although sad to see him go and obviously completely jealous of the hot weather and view from their private villa, I was secretly pleased for some time alone. Pampering and takeaways, jeez somebody pass me the Dominos menu, quick! Now I’ve known the girls…

How To Bring Fornasetti Into The Home

Ever since I bought place in little old London one year ago, I’ve been obsessed with anything white and grey. My lounge is white and grey, my bedroom is white and grey, hell even my clothes are now white and grey. Pair with this my obsession for nice smells (perfume, Jo Malone diffusers and pretty much anything from The White Company) and we have ourselves a path to the beautiful Fornasetti candles. Now, they’re £115 each so…
