Said Cafe in Soho: The perfect cup of Hot Chocolate!

If you need to escape on a rainy day, nip into Said, the new branch of a long-established Rome chocolate shop at 41 Broadwick Street in the heart of Soho. It's small and cosy, there are tiled floors and the wall to ceiling is decorated with beautiful chromed brass, iron and steel chocolate moulds shaped as stars, shells, rabbits, and Easter eggs. While sitting on milk canister stools you can have fresh strawberries  dipped in white, milk and dark chocolate sauces or the perfect piece...

Boxpark Shoreditch

Today I went to visit several markets as I was looking for some sports socks for a shoot that I'm styling, so I went to Cheshire Street just off  Brick Lane but the sock vendor was all out of white socks so I thought I'd head off to Petticoat Market to look for socks but decided to take a break for lunch and stopped at Boxpark. It's usually busy on a Sunday but today is very busy because it's actually 20C  and sunny. Everyone just seems in a better mood and is chilled sitting in the sun...

Stylist Stuff dreams of Emeralds

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...

Filming in Spitalfields

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...

Playing the Tourist

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...

The Lulu Guinness Paint Project with Joseph Steele

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,...

Fashion Scout’s Ones to Watch Hair & Makeup Test

One of the most important parts of doing a fashion show is the hair and make up test. Today we did the hair and makeup test for Fashion Scout's Ones to Watch designers: Patrick Li, Yeashin, and Yulia Kondranina. To prepare for their show over the past few months the designers have been collecting images of hair and makeup looks that they like and that inspire them. It's a group show so the models are shared, and this season everyone has some ideas that overlap so there isn't any great need to...

Corrie Nielsen SS13 Florilegium – The Gathering of Flowers

I met Corrie Nielsen a few seasons ago and I knew that I wanted to work with her and be part of her team. This season Corrie collaborated with the Royal Botanic Gardens and was able to see Kew’s seed libraries, original documentation of Charles Darwin, galleries and a vast catalogue of images. The moodboard in Corrie's studio is a whole wall covered with photographs of flowers and plants that she photographed at Kew Gardens - it's beautiful. A simple way to show flowers is...

Afternoon Tea Wenlock – London’s Offical Mascot

If you've been walking around London you've passed by these odd but charming characters. Wenlock and Mandeville are the London 2012 Olympic mascots. Wenlock is made of steel from a steelworks in Bolton and is named after the Shropshire town of Much Wenlock. It is thought that the Wenlock Games, founded around the mid 19th Century acted as a predecessor to the modern Olympic Games. If you look carefully Wenlock's eye is a camera,and he has a taxi light on his head with his initial in...

The Retro Powder Room

I love the retro powder room. These images are from One Whitehall Place, The Royal Horseguards Hotel. The chaise long, the mirrors and the vanity desks give you the impression that you're in a time forgotten or a film set and you just want to have dramatic event or intense girly conversation like Marilyn Monroe in How To Marry A Millionaire, 1953, with Betty Grable and Lauren Bacall . How to Marry a Millionaire (1953)...

Natasha Law Illustrates Tweets on the Samsung Galaxy Note

This morning I tweeted about prepping for a shoot and hunting for leopard (print), and this illustration is the result! As part of the Samsung Galaxy Note twitter campaign they're having different illustrators illustrate your tweets. My tweet was illustrated by Natasha Law, who's done commissions for Vogue, Mulberry, Harrods and Globe Trotter. Love the pic! It's quite an interesting product - just being able to illustrate your ideas and send them off to a client! [youtube...

Parker Ingenuity Pen!

One of the simple pleasures in life is having a new writing pen, especially for London Fashion Week. I was lucky enough to receive a Parker Ingenuity pen, which is brown with rose gold - beautiful! It's has a hybrid flexible writing tip which moulds to ones writing style - it's a like a fountain pen with none of the mess or worry about spilling ink. I wish I wrote beautifuly (like my mum) as my handwriting is a bit messy but somehow it just seems nicer with a beautiful pen. It's...

The Fashion Cupboard

This is my new fashion cupboard at Phoenix Magazine! I'm quite excited as the whole office is being renovated at the moment and I had been hoping that this office would become our new fashion cupboard, and now it...
