Secondhand Shopping in Pimlico For a stylist I actually don’t shop very much, or at least I don’t think I shop as much as I’d like to. When I’m visiting another country I alway try and fit some shopping in, but in London it happens a bit more haphazardly. Recently my sister in-law was visiting and weContinue reading

One of the amazing parts about my job is that I get to work with some very talented people. I first met Rachel Toledo (formerly Rachel Wood, as she was recently married) over a decade ago and we worked together on numerous projects from catwalk shows to celebrities. Rachel was always easy to work with, sheContinue reading

So many people were sympathetic when my husband died, we are all shocked when someone we know dies and we want to share our condolences. People want to be kind but they fumble and most of us don’t know what to say, and no ones really knows how vulnerable you are when the person you’re in love withContinue reading

This year I will have moved twice. After my husband died I didn’t want to stay in our flat. He unexpectedly died at home and I found him, I never stayed there over night again. I gave away all our furniture, our bed, sofa, tables, lamps, even the toaster to different charities. I kept my teacupsContinue reading

I was on radio show a few weeks back with DJ, Tasty Lopez (aka. Laura Noir) and Something About Magazine editor, Alexandra Zagslsky, with our host Karen Munnis of FashionRadio for K2K. We talked about fashion, Glastonbury, denim, dj sets, and social media and how its influenced our work. It was so much fun listening to one another’s stories andContinue reading

My heart is racing and is does’t seem to be slowing down. I’m not sure if I’m living in panic mode or it’s just this moment – this particular moment. I can not believe this day is here. I tried to anticipate it, to prepare to make plans but some how I couldn’t and theyContinue reading

This year at Graduate Fashion Week you can see that there is more thought put into the styling – which is great but good styling can also make bad things look good, so sometime it’s important to look past the styling and just see the collections! There were lots of accessories on the catwalk on DayContinue reading

I’m very excited about this issue of Candid Magazine with milliner Stephen Jones gracing our cover. I rarely feel that I’m doing shoots that I truly love and really want to be doing (I’m planning on changing that this year), but this shoot was something that I’ve wanted to do for a long time! Plus I love hats andContinue reading

I thought a holiday would give me a break. I love my work and never feel the need to get away from it, especially when I travel as I’m always looking for things that will inspire my creativity and keep driving me to explore new ideas. What I didn’t understand until I was sitting onContinue reading

Sometimes it’s just good to have a change of location and experience another point of view.  I can step out of my hotel room of the Mövenpick Resort & Spa El Gouna, (Egypt) right onto the beach. It’s my new office for the next few days as I’m busy prepping for next week, as it’s quite busyContinue reading

Holiday I’m off to the airport. It’s not for work this time which somehow would be so much easier. It’s not an unusual thing to go on a holiday. It’s rather normal but life now is my new normal and no matter which way you look at it, it’s hard. Today is my first soloContinue reading

There’s nothing like coming home after a long day of work and staying at a hotel. I was staying at the newly refurbished Gainsborough Bath Spa Hotel. From 1824 -1932 it was the United Hospital and later became home to Bath College until 2005. From the moment I walked through the doors the service was impeccable almost overly attentive butContinue reading

This is my 5th season styling catwalk shows at Bath in Fashion and in a few short years it’s grown into an international event without loosing any of the charm that Bath has to offer!  There are over 50 events happening from May 18th-24th. I’m so excited about the talk with author Ben Wild, “A Life in Fashion: TheContinue reading

When I got married I didn’t know that my face would hurt from smiling and after my husband’s death I didn’t know that it would hurt from crying. Seven months after my husband’s death I still wake up with a tear stained face and I can feel the salt stained tears tighten on my skin. It’sContinue reading

Step 1 – Massage and Aroma Therapy No one tells you about the physical pain of grief. Actually no one really tells you anything about grief, and it’s impossible and pointless to prepare. It’s like a secret club but once you’re in, you’re in and there’s no turning back. Grief is overwhelming. For weeks IContinue reading

Survivor’s Guilt This is a place I never expected to be. Guilty for having fleeting moments of happiness. My husband always said that we would live into our 80’s and die within days of one another, like his grandparents did. He was a true romantic. It did sound nice – but it was always something way, way inContinue reading

Valentine’s Day Until Death Do Us Part Until death do us part – you don’t stop loving someone when they die. You might be heart broken but you don’t stop loving them. Recently someone told me that I have suffered an utterly profound and devastating loss and yes, I thought to myself I really have.Continue reading
