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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Forever Crazy London

Forever Crazy London

Legendary Parisian cabaret Le Crazy Horse has opened its doors on the Southbank London and I was invited to attend a performance of their latest show, “Forever Crazy”. Walking in the beautiful, purpose-built Spiegeltent, you’re immediately transported into the naughty world of cabaret, with its plush velvet seats, 2 bars serving champagne and cocktails, mirrors and gold everywhere. The 90-minute show features a bunch of different routines by the 10 dancers – from perfectly coordinated group dances to solo performances […]

Firenze4Ever Style Lab Part 2: The Rock Chick

Firenze4Ever Style Lab Part 2: The Rock Chick

For the second look of my Firenze4Ever Style Lab, I chose something completely different to the first. Whilst browsing Luisa Via Roma for some ideas, a pair of Converse caught my eye – a bit worn and dirty looking with studs, just the way I like them – and as with the first look, the rest just followed naturally. Every rock chick needs a pair of black skinny jeans (J. Brand), badass sunglasses (Linda Farrow), a touch of leather (Givenchy […]

Selfridges’ Big Roof Top Tea & Golf Party

Selfridges’ Big Roof Top Tea & Golf Party

Not in my wildest dreams could I have dreamt something more amazing than putting a golf ball over a lilac cake-shaped Tower Bridge on the rooftop of Selfridges, but well, I did. Before I left on a blissful sunny holiday last week, I got to go to the opening of the coolest place to be this summer, the Selfridges Big Rooftop Tea and Golf Party and it is every bit as amazing as it sounds. As part of Selfridges‘ Big […]

24 hours in Paris with Farfetch.com to celebrate the launch of The Playlist

24 hours in Paris with Farfetch.com to celebrate the launch of The Playlist

Last week I spent a perfect 24 hours in Paris with the lovely team from Farfetch to celebrate the launch of The Playlist, a new project in which they’ve collaborated with six of the world’s best independent music shops and two emerging bands to celebrate the spirit of independent music stores worldwide and the ever-evolving relationship between music and fashion. To mark the launch, Farfetch asked both bands – S.C.U.M. and Singtank – to create a fashion film with them, […]

Ice-Watch launch F*** Me I’m Famous range

Ice-Watch launch F*** Me I’m Famous range

A few weeks ago (when there was still glorious sunshine… remember that?) I went to the launch of the Ice-Watch collaboration with Cathy Guetta (as in, David’s wife), who run the popular F*** Me I’m Famous clubnight in Ibiza every summer. Cathy transformed designed 6 watches: 4 colourful rubber ones with bright graphics for the daytime, and 2 classic black and white ones for the evening. On the rooftop terrace of the lovely Aqua Nueva we were treated to a […]

Win tickets to Kipling’s exclusive 25th Birthday Party!

Win tickets to Kipling’s exclusive 25th Birthday Party!

So this is a little bit last minute, but I’ve been given 2 tickets to tomorrow’s (Jan 26th) big party to celebrate Kipling’s 25th anniversary. To kick off the celebrations, Kipling have chosen 8 artists from all around the world for a product remix project. The project, called “Play with Bags”, saw the artists take some Kipling classics, and cut, sewed, twisted and moulded them into little works of art. The bags were then captured by Belgian photographer Alex Salinas, […]

A festive night in with The Outnet

A festive night in with The Outnet

Last night I got to live most girls’ wildest dream: go to The Outnet HQ aka the Net-A-Porter offices, get my hair and make up done, and try on dreamy (discounted) designer gowns, shoes and accessories and pose for a photographer. Ok, I’m lying – I didn’t actually get dressed up because I wasn’t feeling very well and the last thing I wanted to do was have my picture taken, but pretty much everyone else did. We had eyelashes applied […]

People watching at Frieze Art Fair 2011

People watching at Frieze Art Fair 2011

Yesterday I attended the preview of the prestigious Frieze Art Fair in Regent’s Park. Here’s what you should know about art fairs: other than the fashion weeks they are the best place to spot Fashion with a capital F. Do you ever wonder who actually buys those incredible clothes and accessories you see on catwalks and in magazines? It’s the art folk. Well booted and accessorised, wearing some amazing – but always understated – designers, this is one of the […]

First and Forever with Dr. Martens

First and Forever with Dr. Martens

Last week I was invited to the plush Aubin Cinema in Shoreditch to the ‘premiere’ of a new short film to launch the new Dr. Martens “First and Forever” campaign, featuring models Agyness Deyn and Ash Stymest. In the short clip, almost like a trailer to a movie, Agyness hauntingly beautifully tells of her first heartbreak, shot by photographer Gavin Watson. It captures perfectly what Dr. Martens is about – youth subcultures and a little bit of rebelliousness – but […]
