We go quarterly and the magazine has gone national through Borders for this issue!  This issue is almost 50% bigger and the A5 size works very well as it’s perfect for housing the free 16 track cd. It’s rapidly becoming one of those magazines you want toContinue reading

Beth Ditto for Evans shot by Rankin! Sequines is everywhere this summer and this one is only £65 and the leggings are £18. I love this trend as it never really seems to go away. Love the domino print – it’s only £45! London is known for it’s great high street and Evans has alwaysContinue reading

La Roux

Catchy new single from La Roux – strong styling and art direction in this video! It’s refreshing to see this – a lot of music artists try to look like they don’t have a style because they don’t want to look like they’re trying too hard – but then they don’t stand out at all!

  I saw Louis De Gama‘s work quite a few years back at a London PR so I can’t tell you how happy I was to discover he’d recently opened a shop on Cheshire Street in East London. Louis is one of the most charming delightful people that I have had the pleasure to meet.Continue reading

The comp card is such a staple of the fashion industry – I think the last time I was at a mass casting for London Fashion Week I ended up holding 200 model comp cards (they get heavy!). Fashion Television has a great piece on the man who invented the comp card: Auro Varani: …andContinue reading

I love high heels and I usually feel like I’m schlepping when I’m wearing flats. Most days I’m running around preparing for shoots in flats or a small heels but when I go out it’s all about the shoes. I’m okay going out and standing around in heels it’s just at the end of theContinue reading

This week is a rare and wonderful time for me.  I’m actually taking a little time off. I say rare because I don’t remember the last time I went away somewhere and didn’t have a packed makeup kit with me to do for a job.  Like a lot of people who work freelance there isContinue reading

I love PJ Harvey – she’s one of those female music artists who really are one-of-a-kind. Her style is unique to her, and that has a lot to do with her body type but it also has to do with her attitude – a kind of aggressive vulnerability that few artists have duplicated. This isContinue reading

Irregular Choice held a party in their Carnaby Street store on Tuesday – it was a lot of fun! I have small feet and tend to like quirky shoes. I like interesting heels, textures and colours and I don’t like to spend a huge amount of money on shoes. I discovered Irregular Choice shoes aContinue reading

I went to the opening of the new exhibit at the Fashion and Textile Museum. I find the history of underwear so fascinating! At the exhibition you can see the first patented bra from 1915, and anti-cellulite knickers and a bust-firming bra. It’s interesting when I’m shopping for something like vintage 50’s prom dresses –Continue reading

I’ve decided that I need to embrace colour. Don’t get me wrong I don’t wallow in black all day long, nor do I wear muted grey hues when I feel a little on the ‘wacky’ side. But I don’t embrace colour like I ought to. Extreme colour is the way forward and it’s time IContinue reading

Primark – or "Primarni" as I like to refer it as, is the Marmite of shopping – You Love it or Hate it. I’m guilty as charged for the Love it team. I like the ease of popping in to buy a cheap vest top for the gym or a little black dress for work.Continue reading

I recently have been collecting many trinket necklaces. Odds and sods have been an obsession of mine for quite a while, but now to my delight I realise there are so many more pieces I can find to make quirky accessories! Spoons – now who really thought one year ago a teaspoon would be evenContinue reading

OH. MY. GOD Check out David Beckham and his pants. Just when you think ‘Pah,David Beckham he’s like soooo 1998’ he goes and wows us with his new advertising campaign for Emporio Armani. Yesterday at lunch time he unveiled the advertising campaign at Selfridges in London, where girls flocked like moths to a burning, red-hotContinue reading
