A FRESH PERSPECTIVE

A FRESH PERSPECTIVE

– WHY YOUR LATE TWENTIES ARE A STRUGGLE – Those wrinkles that you think are far away for your future self to deal with start appearing causing you minor anxiety every time you look in the mirror. You haven’t grown up yet and you really start to think it’s about time causing you to make a shopping list that no longer consists of heels and Prosecco but houses, cars and a retirement plan.  Self doubt. You suddenly become a machine, drilling in girlboss mantras at least ten times a day as everyone from class of 99 have a house, car,…

HOW TO BE A SAVVY SHOPPER

HOW TO BE A SAVVY SHOPPER

– HOW I LEARNT TO MAKE THE MOST  OUT OF MY WARDROBE – A year ago I was in a situation where I was moving out of a place I had been based for seven years. It suddenly became very obvious to me that I was a hoarder of clothes as I pondered over the prospect of carting them across London to my new abode. I had four rails of clothes and two bookshelves worth of shoes and it was time to move them! It came down to the questions – did I wear them and did I really want them?…

THE ART OF WOMANHOOD

THE ART OF WOMANHOOD

I started adolescent life in an all girls school – whoever invented ALL girl schools….seriously?!?! During the key years of my life, I learnt that girls were bitchy, mean, two-faced and occasionally violent. As soon as I hit sixteen I transferred to the local boys school where I was one of a handful of girls who roamed the corridors of a male populated school. The dream, some might say, though I didn’t do it for the obvious reasons I did it to escape the backlash of ferocious cats and by cats I mean hormonal teenage girls. I spent the younger…

ROCKING THE RIVIERA

ROCKING THE RIVIERA

– WHEN PINSTRIPES ARE NECESSARY – From recent events in the news I was a little skeptical about travelling to the French Riviera and for the first time I was a nervous flyer. However one twitter poll later and I was convinced that Nice needed my support and I also didn’t want to be scared to go on an adventure. I spend most summers in Cannes and four years ago I worked out there so I have quite an attachment to the French Riviera.  Having not read ‘How To Be Parisian’ I am not too clued up on how to be fabulously…

STYLING THIN HAIR

STYLING THIN HAIR

– THE PERFECT PRODUCT TO COMBAT FINE, LIMP, HAIR – When the cards in life were being dealt great hair wasn’t one of them for me. My hair is thin and lifeless, which is why most of the time it’s just up in a bun. Extensions are sometimes the answer but I’m always so conscious of the clips or bonds and I am very aware of how freaked out the male species are by detachable hair. After an array of different options I gave up on anything fake – the sewn in weave (Stella), the clip-ins (Horace), the fake pony…

GOOD OLD BLIGHTY

GOOD OLD BLIGHTY

BRITISH SUMMER /ˈbrɪt.ɪʃ sʌm.ə.taɪm/ A non-existent term that British people use to describe a mythical time of year. Usually associated with dreamers, in particular those who dream of hotter climes. So British Summer time is over, it lasted approximately one week and now we can all get excited about Autumn.  Jokes aside – what exactly do we wear in British Summer time? The weather is so confusing! Most of the year its pretty simple…it’s cold and pack a brolly. But, in the Summer good old Blighty can throw anything at us so how are our wardrobes possibly meant to tackle that? I…

MONOCHROME LOW-DOWN

MONOCHROME LOW-DOWN

– THIS SUMMER’S MONOCHROME LOW-DOWN – Firstly let’s face it, you can probably tell by my blog I’m an absolute sucker for all things monochrome! I’ve always associated monochrome with city chic and the colder months. However I found that adopting a lace overlay really sets of a summer tone to the overall look – which is exactly what I did here. I’ve been an Olivia Palermo super fan since she graced my TV screen in the Elle accessories department in MTV The City and with that said I became obsessed with accessorising. The way she draws an outfit together…
