MailOnline | A Response

It comes as a surprise to many that I don’t read MailOnline. I’ve never really had much desire to nor do I have any interest. There’s no particular reason, it’s just that if I have a spare few minutes it’s usually spent on Instagram or looking at my favourite blogs InTheFrow, L.E.M, Core Kitchen and Frock Me Im Famous. When I’m asked by friends “OMG did you see on sidebar of shame that….” No, I didn’t actually. It’s the…

What I Learned Working At Kurt Geiger

Picture the scene, I’m 20 years old, living in Bristol, studying at University and to afford Chanel skincare and makeup guilt-free, I would work shifts at Starbucks. At 10.30pm on my way out of Cribbs Causeway with my manager, I couldn’t help but notice a sign – KURT GEIGER – COMING SOON! “Oh amazing, Steve I’ll be handing my notice in soon ahaha, ahaha, aha” (half joking). A week and an interview later, I was shyly apologising and saying…

A Stunning Meal & View

Dining in London can either be a real treat or a real let down. Whether I’m splashing out on a meal for six or dining on a deal for two, one thing is for sure, ambiance, the view and the service is key. Well, the company and the food come a close second too. Now I’m no Giles Coren (an amazing food critic who I loved to read during my time at Sunday Times Style) but…

WIN! Kirk & Kirk Sunglasses Worth £300

Now I’m not one to shy away from a lilac clutch bag shaped like a milk carton (Skinnydip, price £25), an iridescent crop top or a high heeled mule. Hell, in true fashion victim style I’ve even been known to wear two watches on one wrist at once. When it comes to being seriously cool though, in my teens rather than channelling an inner Gwen Steffani I’d always try to be more sexy like Eva Mendes, usually failing dismally. Now…

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.

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…
