Easiest make-up ever


For someone who loves beauty products, I keep my make-up super low-key during the day usually. But like most London gals, the make-up application I do in the morning is pretty much always on the move (coffee comes first… priorities y’know). So as I’m rushing out the door, here’s the make-up must-haves I grab on the […]

You gotta go to Mexico


When you’ve got a travel bucket list longer than your arm, the picking-where-to-go-next struggle is real (but nicest dilemma to have ever though, right?). Eventually, after a couple of weeks of debate, Mexico came out as the winner – and it might be one of the best decisions we’ve made this year. Reunited with the […]

Styled by Stylist


Confession time – secretly I’ve always wanted to be a model. Which is all good, except for the part where I don’t look like one. And well, I’m obviously not model proportions either. So I put that little fantasy to the back of my mind, occasionally indulging in what being in my favourite magazine would […]

Four days in New York


Of places I’ve always wanted to go, New York was just… never really one of them. But when life presents you an opportunity, I’m of the belief that you should never turn it down. (There are exceptions to that rule of course.) Last summer one of my dearest friends offered me the chance to go visit her in Manhattan. So […]

My kind of paradise


Sun-drenched beaches, endless palm trees and an ocean of crystal clear water – the very essence of a fantasy. It’s an idea so far removed from the to-do lists and Oyster card journeys that dictate our stressful daily lives that I didn’t dare imagine that such a place could truly exist… how wrong I was. For […]

The art of flowers


For me, a happy home begins with an abundance of flowers. Which is exactly why I like to give them as gifts – nothing brightens someone’s day quite like beautiful blooms. But who wants a bunch that look like they’ve come from a petrol station? I like to give my flowers a personal touch. This bouquet, rather glamorously, started life […]

Three days in Paris


Everyone has a place they spend their whole life wanting to visit, for me that was Paris. So what better excuse than a birthday to book an impromptu visit to the City of Lights.  Setting off from a freezing and drizzly London before sunrise, we seemed to sleepwalk our way onto the Eurostar at St.Pancras; it felt […]

Nike is en pointe


As a lover of all things ballet, I couldn’t help but be interested when I saw that Nike had launched their very own take on the ballet shoe. Designed to be the kind of shoe that will take you from the barre to sun salutations at a yoga class, Nike have cleverly created a multi-tasking […]

H&M Pledges Healthy Models Only


H&M has announced that it only wants to feature ‘healthy’ models to promote their clothes in future. The high street favourite has been criticised before for their use of underweight girls so the move demonstrates a desire to reflect a look as diverse as that of their customers around the world. After the recent launch […]

How Chanel Proves Their Power on Pinterest


You know when you’ve created a power brand? When the internet does your social media for you. In a recent study on Pinterest, Chanel came out top of all the luxury brands despite not even having an active account. The brand managed an average of 400 pins and more than 3,600 repins per day, most of […]
