Las Vegas with WWD MAGIC – Part 1

Las Vegas with WWD MAGIC – Part 1

A couple of weeks ago, I was flown to Las Vegas to be part of WWD MAGIC‘s official blogging team. WWD MAGIC is the biggest fashion trade show in the world, which brings together brands from all around the planet. Myself and a 14 other U.S. and international bloggers were invited to attend, host panels, blog and generally enjoy the incredible atmosphere, whilst also discovering Las Vegas a little bit more. I flew out with 2 other UK bloggers, the […]

The Color Run 2013 London

The Color Run 2013 London

Earlier this year I started running, a journey I’ve been sharing with you all along the way. Yes, I’m still rubbish at it, but I’m still running and I’m loving it. I love it so much I even started a whole new website about it – check out Fashercise if you haven’t yet! Look. I’m still figuring out how to run 2 totally different websites all by myself , and it isn’t easy. So although I already wrote in depth […]

Ted Baker AW13

Ted Baker AW13

Not that I’ve not been loving the sunny weather lately, but I must admit that when it comes to fashion, I always prefer winter. Layers! Thick fabrics! Dark colours! So despite the sweltering heat outside, I was pretty excited to catch Ted Baker’s AW13 collection on the catwalk last week. This season had a bit of a travel theme (“take the scenic route”) and featured both the men’s and women’s collections. There was a slight 20′s, 40′s and 60′s vibe, […]

Henley Royal Regatta with Mahiki Coconut

Henley Royal Regatta with Mahiki Coconut

In my decade in the UK, I’ve never actually experience a traditional boat race, so when Mahiki Coconut Liqueur invited me to go to the Henley Royal Regatta, I of course jumped at the opportunity. London nightclub Mahiki sets up camp for the week at the Regatta every year and myself and a couple of other journalists were given the VIP treatment on a sunsoaked afternoon, with a cocktail masterclass learning to make Mahiki’s trademark cocktails, nibbles, celebspotting and dancing. Fun to say […]

A day at the tennis with Evian

A day at the tennis with Evian

  After a treasure hunt around London and not one but two nights at the BAFTA’s, I’ve learned that when an invite from Evian lands in my inbox, I am bound to have an incredible experience. This invite asked if I fancied going to the pre-Wimbledon BNP Paribas Tennis Classic tournament at the stately Hurlingham Club to enjoy some big names in tennis playing friendly matches, a fashion show hosted by My Wardrobe, a delicious lunch, oh and… would I […]

#BadoitExpress Pop Up Picnic Restaurant

#BadoitExpress Pop Up Picnic Restaurant

Organising a picnic in London in summer doesn’t come without risk. For a minute there, I thought it would rain all over the world’s first pop up picnic restaurant hosted by sparkling water brand Badoit, but the weather gods were kind and spared us from a soggy meal – and what a meal it was. Following the success of last year’s Badoit Express in Paris – where Michelin starred chef Thierry Marx turned a commuter train into a free fine […]

Win a BAFTA goodiebag with Evian!

Win a BAFTA goodiebag with Evian!

For the second time in a couple of months, I was invited to attend the BAFTA’s by one of the sponsors, Evian (see what happened last time here). This time it was the turn of the TV BAFTA’s , held at the Royal Festival Hall on the South Bank. This time I opted for a dress I had hanging in my wardrobe, a one-shouldered jersey French Connection dress and simple jewellery and hair. Of course, the British weather played havoc […]

British Designers Collective 2013

British Designers Collective 2013

  Last week saw the opening of the fourth edition of the British Designers Collective pop up boutique at Bicester Village, hosted by girl-of-the-moment Rita Ora. The collective UK fashion press gathered early last Thursday at Marylebone Station to catch a very special British Designers Collective train to Bicester Village, complete with the most delicious breakfast boxes served by male models (not your average train ride!). Upon arrival, Rita Ora (dressed in Roksanda Illincic) was joined by a number of […]

A night at the BAFTA’s with Evian!

A night at the BAFTA’s with Evian!

After years of watching awards ceremonies on tv, I finally got to experience what it was really like when Evian invited me and a couple of other bloggers to attend the 2013 BAFTA’s with them a couple of weeks ago. In my years in the fashion industry, I’ve seen my fair share of celebrities, have gone to numerous glamorous events, so I didn’t think I could get starstruck anymore. WRONG! The BAFTA’s bring glamorous on a whole new level. Never […]

O2 Future Timeline

O2 Future Timeline

To celebrate the launch of O2′s new Pay & Go Go Go tariff where you get more benefits as time goes on , they’ve created a “Future Timeline“, which functions a little like a Facebook timeline, only going forward instead of backwards. To launch Future Timeline, I was asked to predict future fashion trends in a video alongside prominent music, film, sports and art bloggers. I had to pinpoint some key trends for this summer and bury them in a […]

24 Hours In Amsterdam With SuperTrash

24 Hours In Amsterdam With SuperTrash

During Amsterdam Fashion Week (yes, it’s a real thing, look it up), Dutch label SuperTrash held a spectacular show to celebrate its new AW13 collection and I was invited to come along for the ride. SuperTrash may not be a familiar name to you (yet), but it’s a household name in the Netherlands and even Belgium. Now they have set their sights on conquering the UK, having opened their first boutique on South Molton Street just a couple of months ago. So that […]

Evian Live Young

Evian Live Young

Evian’s motto is “Live Young”, and so this January they popped up around London with fun ideas to get people to live and act young again. Pink, foamy Evian swings were installed right outside Canary Wharf tube station and a giant seesaw appeared in Finsbury Avenue Square to the confusion and delight of the commuters. Taking it one step further, Evian took me and Abi on a daylong treasure hunt around London to unleash the inner child in us. We started […]
