“Day to night beauty” has to be up there with “wardrobe staples” in terms of big fat fashion cliches. But, like many big fat fashion cliches, it is an actual thing and a bloody useful one sometimes too. After all, who the hell has the time or can remotely be bothered to take off all their makeup and start over come sunset? Not me, that’s for sure! Thankfully with a little help from Bourjois I didn’t have to…

London Fashion Week SS17

Better late than never, eh! If I could insert an emoji here it would be one of shame and shiftiness. Maybe even the monkey-covering-eyes which I never, ever use because frankly it’s pretty lame. Not as lame, however, as posting your London Fashion Week SS17 looks two months after the event. I reckon these outfits are still worth sharing, but you guys should really be the judge of that…

Fashion week is many fantastic things; fabulous, fascinating, exhilarating, inspiring, memorable, sometimes even moving… The list could go on. It’s also exhausting, intense and extremely high pressure. It demands a lot of you and, more importantly, of your wardrobe and makeup. Say you’ve found the perfect colour popping lip to match the killer ensemble you’ll be legging around in for hours on hours on hours. The last thing you want is to have to constantly worry about your traffic stopping fuchsia pout fading to a paltry pink. After all, no one wants…

And so, mes amies, it’s time for the final instalment of my Bucharest travel diaries. What an adventure it’s been! Most people in my position would probably have condensed the whole thing into a couple of posts but you know that’s never going to be the case with me. Believe it or not I did actually try to keep things succinct, yet here we are on number three… Of the travel element at least. There’s a fair bit of fashion and beauty stuff from our Romanian excursion still to come. For now, I’m going…

It is far, far too freezing an October morning to be reminiscing on what I wore in the glorious heat of New York Fashion Week! Mere minutes ago I was sipping a piping hot coffee, thinking about how gorgeous a crisp, chilly day it was and fantasising about new knitwear. One look at these pics, however, and all I want is H-E-A-T…

The phrase “wardrobe staple” is one we hear a hell of a lot. It’s used for everything from trench coats and Breton striped tees to cashmere sweaters, LBD’s, Edie Parker customised clutches and some frankly bizarre pieces like sparkly crop tops and Christmas jumpers. One item that is most definitely, undeniably a wardrobe staple is the denim skirt. Last month, I teamed up with Kate Spade New York to do a little styling with one of their AW16 numbers…

Time for the second instalment of my Romanian adventures, mes amies! Aaaaaand once again I’m overwhelmed by the urge to get away ASAP; purely for work oriented, non personal lols motivated purposes of course. Anyway, as I mentioned in my previous travel diary there is a lot to do, see and enjoy in the city and we tried our damnedest to make the most of that. So, Bucharest Pt.2 let’s go…
