Festive Giving

o easy to get wrapped up in stresses of Christmas, we forget that ultimately the holiday is about giving, sharing and kindness. If you still have last minute Christmas gifts to buy (and even if you haven't) then I urge you to donate to any of the very worthy charities below.  You can either do it your own name or in that of a friend or family member, who I'm sure would appreciate it as much an actual wrapped up gift under the tree.

Time for a Blog Giveaway

It feels as though it has been way too long since I last did a blog giveaway, so to make up for it I've pulled together the biggest assortment of goodies.  In the past, I've done giveaways featuring a single palette or a couple of small items but this time I wanted to do something a little bit more special.  I pulled together a big bundle of lovely prizes and I'm still adding to it, so there will be even more up for grabs than in the pictures.

Danone Light and Free

One of the many wonderful perks about blogging is getting invited to some fab events by really great brands.  When an invite from Danone pinged into my inbox to celebrate the launch of their new Light and Free yoghurt I knew immediately it was a must go. This is what I got up to. Read more

When One Chapter Closes

This is a bittersweet post for me as this is the last look I wore while still living in beautiful LA.  I wore it on my final big night out in LaLaLand, so it brings back super happy memories (most of which involve a lot of tequila!). Read more

Thoughts of the Month: What’s Next

One of the questions I get asked over and over again is why I spend so much time in LA, especially when I refer to myself as a "Londoner" or "London blogger" so often.  I wrote a "Thoughts of the Month" blogpost nearly a year ago touching on my reasons behind crossing the Atlantic and now seems like an apt time to re-address it since March will sadly be the last month I spend in Los Angeles before returning to my hometown, London, full time.  Now that this chapter is coming to an end I wanted to share my thoughts on what happens after you take the plunge.

Thoughts of the Month: Fashion Armour

The other day I found myself walking home from work with my head held higher and an extra spring in my step. It was all because I was wearing an outfit which made me extra confident and it got me thinking about the power of fashion. Read more

Five Favourite: Christmas Presents

I'm starting a new series on the blog called Five Favourites.  It pretty much says it in the name but the idea is to feature my five favourite/most recommended everything.  I hope it will give me the opportunity to talk about topics outside the realm of fashion and beauty which is my usual niche.  In this series I will also be touching on travel, restaurants, food, experiences and fitness to name a few.I thought as I had a few requests to do a "What I Got For Christmas..." post, I would combine it with this and do my "Five Favourite: Christmas Presents".

Thoughts of the Month: Personal Value

It's no secret I love fashion.  I began this blog as an outlet to talk about fashion, my style and my latest fashion acquisitions.  I choose to invest heavily in clothes, shoes and bags, partly because what I wear is an expression of who I am and partly because if I feel I look great on the outside then it makes me feel great on the inside.  Interestingly, I often get (judgemental) gasps from my friends, family and colleagues about my spending choices which they sometimes see as extravagant. Recently I got to thinking about how each of us choose to spend our hard earned money and what exactly is "personal value". Read more
