This week has all been about seeing shows at London Fashion Week. I knew it was going to be a hard week as it’s just over a year since my husband past away. He was a catwalk photographer so I could alway spot him in the ‘pit’ when he  was shooting a show and we’dContinue reading

I’m very results oriented but there are some things, many things that I’ve been procrastinating about this year, and I know that getting organised will help me move forward. I have lots to sort out since my husband’s death and it’s true that in grief you don’t have the strength or energy to face most things. ButContinue reading

Who are your heros? I’m very fortunate as try to surround myself with people I admire. I seek them out. Zig Ziglar quote, “You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with” After my husband died one of my friends suggested I see a nutritionist. I wasn’t quite sure why but IContinue reading

My dad has always called it D&D – discipline and desire, I’m not sure whether he realised it or not but it became my personal motto. Unfortunately the things I Iike to do, for myself get pushed aside when I’m busy  – which is why I wanted to do Natalie’s 10 Day Freedom Plan Blog Challenge. I thought itContinue reading

We all have something that we’re good at, a superpower but we don’t always know what it is. It’s important to stop and look at the things we’re good at and enjoy doing. It might be obvious what you’re good at but sometimes it might be your underlying skill set that would make you good at several thingsContinue reading

Vision boards. Do you believe if you commit a vision to paper, create a moodboard in detail, and share the vision with your team that it will become true? I do this every week with moodboards for photoshoots and our moodboards become a reality. So what if you create vision or moodboard for your life would that work?  IContinue reading

After you lose someone you love, you redefine and rediscover yourself. This year I have to check in with myself regularly and remind myself to do new things, to keep doing fashion shoots, to go to the gym and just to just keep going. Even if there are moment that I feel like why bother, I know I justContinue reading

This past year I’ve found it hard to blog. Grief really messes with your concentration and focusing is really a challenge. The other difficulty was grief and fashion just don’t seem to go together but they are both a big part of my daily life right now and I’ve wanted to find a way forContinue reading

One of my friends shared a very kind piece of advice. She lost her mum nine years ago. I’ve known her for years and she never mentioned this before. There are so many of my friends who have lost family members & close friends who never mentioned it and I never thought to ask…before. When youContinue reading

In a few days it will be the first anniversary of my husband’s death. I’m not sure what one does. I don’t how to prepare or what to expect. Throughout the year we remember those we lost but a death anniversary triggers our emotions. I didn’t know what to expect but I thought I’d cover myselfContinue reading

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
