What Happened When I Met Sex & The City Author

‘Cheating isn’t funny but viewed from afar the cheater maybe be’…. So said Candace Bushnell in a recent tweet. Follow her on Twitter and you’ll find lots of comments and mumbles undoubtably synonymous with the world famous, Manolo wearing, New York City darling, Carrie Bradshaw. For those who live under a rock, Candace Bushnell is the brains behind Carrie, Charlotte, Sam and Miranda; the group of best friends in Sex and the City. Recently, I…

Why Everyday Should Be A Shoesday

If you follow my Instagram and Twitter, you’ll have seen that I’ve been uploading lots of pictures of outfits that I’ve put together to pair with five different sets of shoes from new online retailer, ShoesDays.co.uk. For those who aren’t familiar with the company, they offer affordable, fashionable shoes to suit those who love flats, sandals, boots, straps and like me, the highest of heels. Aside from their own branded goods, they even stock Dunlop slippers, a collection from…

Let’s Talk About Anxiety

If you have symptoms that include worry, fear and tension or are always irritable or unable to concentrate, forget what people say about you being a total over reactor because chances are you have anxiety. Now anxiety comes in all forms and in terms of measurability, there’s a spectrum from a rather mild, healthy size to more serious and potentially harmful.  Personally, I do suffer with anxiety, costing me hundreds on massage bills and uncomfortable sleeping…

Stationer Of The Moment | Dimitria Jordan

Thud! The latest copy of GQ Style lands on my desk. Argh, it looks amazing! These moments of anticipation, excitement and joy are a regular occurrence in my day job. I utterly love it when a new copy comes my way. Working at Condé Nast means I get that pleasure of pouring over the latest issue of GQ, Vogue, Glamour etc on a monthly basis. Now we all know that familiar, delightful feeling when we get a fresh magazine… that…

An Escape To Foodie Heaven In Somerset

As much as I love the hustle and bustle of London, my job and my home in the busy North of the city, I’m a firm believer in a work/life balance. Being from a village in South Wales, growing up I was surrounded by families, grass and yes – even trees! Believe me, when you’ve lived in London for seven years, concrete and glass buildings in lieu of actual shrubbery becomes a familiar habitat so I…

When Estée Lauder Taught Me How To Do Makeup

Having been invited to meet the Estée Lauder team at their new pop up in Shoreditch’s Boxpark, last night I went to say hi to the PR girls and check out the new ranges. As well as a shift in demand for men, trends in makeup are huge news and thankfully not as intimidating as fashion trends. It’s generally not difficult and there’s little room for error meaning you can’t really get it wrong. After a meet and greet I…

GQ Men of the Year 2015

Sometimes in life there are those real ‘Dear Diary’ moments. For me, it was actually the entire week, last week. After a fun time with Ann Summers (see here), an amazing weekend away (review on Ston Easton coming soon) and then the biggest event of the Condé Nast and GQ calendar (hosting a table at GQ Men Of The Year), it really was a week to remember. On top of this, I managed to squeeze in a…

Come In To My Space

Like millions of fashion obsessed, I recently took a peek inside American, Phillip Lim’s New York City loft. Not in the flesh I hasten to add but in an article. After 18 months of renovations, Phillip Lim can now tick off ‘Get Amazing Accommodation’ off his bucket list. That’s as well as ticking off ‘Own Insane Brand Worth $100 Million In Annual Revenue’ (3.1 Phillip Lim) and ‘Be Stocked In All The Amazing Department Stores’.…

A Discussion On Happiness

Following a four year stint in Bristol and five and a half years spent, (translation partying) in South London (Clapham, Brixton, Putney – you know, those places where non-Londoner’s usually go first of all), I now live in North London. My entire family live in South Wales (where I am originally from) and naturally, my friends are now dispersed everywhere. My best friends now live in Australia, the Middle East or ‘up North’ with probably only a…

What I Really Think Of Ann Summers

As part of my day job I have access to the future. No really, I really do! Anybody who works in the magazine industry will know that we work on titles up to three months in advance. So guess what. That insane December issue that you can’t wait to get your hands on? We’re working it right now. Not only editorially – even brands and advertisers are already sending in their objectives for Xmas and…

Alexander Wang x Dosomething.org

People say there are both selfish and selfless reasons as to why people give to charity. Whether it’s out of guilt, personal interest or to make you feel better, everyone knows that raising awareness or giving to charity is always a worthwhile cause. I try to give whenever possible; deductions automatically taken from my salary, a money box en route to the tube station or a guy on the street asking me to text a…

Glowing Rays & New Makeup Looks

I’ve enjoyed playing with makeup since I was about 18 years old. As a young teen I was banned from wearing any makeup to school whatsoever so low and behold, I ended up obsessed with severe blacker-than-black eyeliners, deep red lipsticks, huge fake lashes and a variety of different shaped eyebrows by the time I went to Uni. I could tell you the numbers and names of each of the L’Oréal Infallible lipsticks and could talk you…

I’m Going Back To School

It’s September and my first thought along with many others is ‘what the deuce?’. Yesterday Daniel and I took a trip to Upper Street, Angel (by the way, for those foodies among us try out Gallipoli Café and Bistro for the amazing food, shisha and outdoor area) and from our cosy little car we could see the trees a range of brown, yellow and green. It’s such a comforting feeling seeing the leaves turn. It reminds me…
