Theo Fennell collaborated with Gemfields the world’s leading coloured gemstone producer on new the Emerald Suite. Each piece took up to 65 hours to make by the Theo Fennell craftsmen including a setter, mounter, deep engraver and polisher in London at their Fulham Road workshop. I love Theo Fennell’s designs because there is always a story behind them, not matter how beautiful the stone is, it is the design that creates a story and making the stone that much more desirable.
The one of a kind pieces showcase two extremely rare Gemfields Zambian Emerald Beads: the 18ct White Gold Ring showcases a 38.70ct Emerald Bead in a pave diamond setting, topped with a 0.42ct ruby, while the matching 18ct necklace features a staggering 65.30ct Gemfields Emerald Bead suspended on an 18ct white gold and diamond chain.

There is always something exciting about seeing a film set. I don’t know what film this is but jut seeing crashed cars, extras hanging about and even telephone boxes where they are not usually excites the imagination!

I love London – it’s one of the best places to be a tourist and when you live in a city sometimes it’s really hard to stop and just enjoy it. We’re so busy we sometimes forget that we live in one of the most exciting cities in the world. I love London because of the fashion but I also really love London because of the architecture. Sometimes it’s just important to take a day off, especially when the sun is shining, and enjoy where you live and no matter where you live you can still look at it with fresh eyes and enjoy it from a tourist’s point of view!

Lulu Guinness teamed up with street artist Joseph Steele who has been hailed as the new Damien Hirst for The Lulu Guinness Paint Project. The event took place at the Old Sorting Office on Oxford Street with "explosions" happening through out the evening. I arrived for the first explosion. There was quite a bit of anticipation in the crowd as no one really knew what to expect but we all gathered at 21.15 and suddenly there was a huge bang and out of the canon shot red paint, hitting the The Hug and Hold clutchs.
This isn’t Joseph’s first explosion: he’s dressed two full size mannequins and then blew them up with a combination of gloss paint, he’s blasted copper hoping to create a flower type shape and my favourite was that he set fire to one of his "failed works". Lulu and Joseph met through the London agency CrimeLAB part of Beautiful Crime, who organize collaborations between artists and brands.
Lulu and Joseph will create 180 bags, selling 3 of them on eBay with proceeds going to The Art Room, a charity that does art therapy to help children.

Lots of celebrities including the very cute Talia Storm and Tessie Hartmann.
Me and Courtney Blackman!
It was quite a popular event as there was a constant queue!
Update: Just passed a shop this morning and saw that the painted bags already on display!
