It’s only three more days until the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and I’ve kicked off my celebrations early, running around London to various Diamond and British heritage themed events. There are too many to blog about them all – I do have a day job – but I thought I’d share a few highlights over the coming days. Last year I was introduced to a gorgeously eclectic swimwear … Continue reading FASHION: Paolita At Portman Village Jubilee Street Party
I’ve been so busy recently I haven’t had time for blogging, so as a mini post I thought I’d share how you can get a FREE mini Manicure with London College Of Beauty on May 10 by registering HERE. The students are trying to break a world record for most manicures done in one day and need 3000 volunteers! Enjoy x Continue reading BEAUTY: Nail It

As promised I’ve finally posted the outfit that went with my Petra K inspired hair. I’m obsessed with this outfit and have been wearing it far too much!

As for the shoes… they’re surprisingly comfortable (thanks to the dozens of people who asked if my feet … Continue reading FASHION/PERSONAL STYLE: Zara and Yuki Tokyo

I regained some balance and played in the snow for the rest of the evening before venturing out on sunday in my cosy Miwa By Yuki Tassle Jumper to explore the winter wonderland. I love this jumper so much, … Continue reading ESCAPES: Snow Baby!
I took a little trip to fairytale land over Christmas, also known as Prague in the Czech Republic. Unfortunately it wasn’t destined to be a white Christmas but none the less I was prepared for cold weather and suitably layered up. Inspired by the guards at the Royal Palace, and by the copious amounts of fur seen on the Prague streets, I put together this … Continue reading FASHION/PERSONAL STYLE: Fur, Faux, Foe
My flatmates recently organised a little “non competitive” bowling outing to All Star Lanes in Brick Lane London where we enjoyed 50’s style shakes and a turn on the lanes. I planned myself a little 50’s outfit and the super talent Tara O’Hehir took these cute pics of me attempting to bowl. Sadly bowling shoes aren’t as cute as they used to be, check out these velcro … Continue reading FASHION/PERSONAL STYLE: Bowl Me Over
One much delayed blog post later and we return to Paris, weighed down once again with alcohol, this time Le Quesnoy cider, and several tonnes of nougat. It being two weeks since these events happened I am finding it hard to visualise Paris from the dim and dreary London streets now at my window. That evening we arrived back in Paris, we headed to the … Continue reading ESCAPES: Paris Take Two
