I write this blog post with a lot of happiness in my heart. There are times when you try so hard and it takes a long time to see the result of that hard work. I can’t emphasise how much there is the right time for things to happen. Unfortunately I can’t share in detail what brings me this sort of happiness however I want to encourage anyone reading, who is putting in a lot of hard work right now and not seeing the result to hang in there. It

I went shopping with an old friend who happened to be in town because she had a flight into London. Working as an air hostess certainly has its pecks. Seeing as we had not seen each-other in a long time, the plan was to have brunch and go shopping (my favourite sport). We made our way down to Bond Street the loud chime of the clock told me Selfridges was open…Our day could begin, I was keen to show her a part of Selfridges most people don’t know exists. We

For Victoria who was a bit bored of reading all the “floral” spring inspired blog posts. The seventies was when fashion became expressive. Think fringe pieces, tie and dye shirts and clogs. It was also the birth of the wedgies, one- piece swimsuits and jersey wrap dress. Hot pants, culottes, maxi evening gowns and even his/hers outfits were all the rage. I have put together a look that can be replicated using modern pieces with a nod to the 70’s. On the Fringe Click here to buy Click here to

It’s that time of the year; the sun is out very early sometimes as early as 6am. The thin curtains in my room mean I get a full beam of sun rays directly on my face.. Who needs an alarm when you’ve got sunshine? The birds are chirping, the air is crisp and life feels good. Yes it is spring, my favourite season as it’s not too hot, it’s not too cold, and it’s simply perfect. The time has come to transition from your thick winter coat to soft wonderful

I got introduced to designer Sabah Mauladad of Bibisab luxury neckwear  by my friend Victoria. With a well read education in fashion and decades of experience working with some of the leading names in luxury fashion, it’s no surprise that she has produced what I would describe as a refreshing unique addition to any wardrobe. When Victoria contacted me that Sabah was going to be attending London Fashion Week and needed a blogger to write about her collection, I was beyond delighted and simply couldn’t pass on the offer. Her collection

Dreaming in Blue

Dreams definitely can become reality. One lazy summer night I was having a glass of wine and hanging out with my friend Alex, for the first time, he opened up to me and told me his story. At 25 Alex was living in Romania having dropped out of university. One day he decided things had to change; he dedicated all his spare time to reading books and was self taught on code writing. Fast forward to 6years he is working with the leading global investment bank in the world as

In my every day to day life, I love to break the mould. If I feel a sudden desire to skip as I am walking, I skip. If there’s fantastic music playing in a bar whilst everyone is sat down being proper and formal, I would get up and dance. This doesn’t mean I am not aware of social ethics and the fact there’s a time and a place for most things, however it does mean I am unafraid to live and to feel. It’s so easy it these days

24 days to the end of 2014…Depending on when you are reading this blog post, the number of days might have changed slightly. However what’s apparent is the fact 2014 is quickly drawing to a halt. For me it’s almost the end to a chapter of what’s been the highs and lows of a phenomenal year. Today couldn’t be a more a perfect time to reflect and recap on 2014. Here are a few random facts about my year: I found my first grey hair (slowly waking up to the

Since the end of Halloween, the Christmas adverts have come in hard and fast. Some of it had me cooing and awing whilst some just put me in a right strop. Everywhere I turn there is a mention of Christmas: Gift ideas, travel deals, supermarket deals etc. Christmas has changed over the years. It has become over-commercialised and over-marketed but the one thing that hasn’t changed is it being the time of the year when friends and family come together and celebrate. One of my fondest memories growing up was
