Illustrated OOTD

Saturday, 30 August 2014


Summer seems to have come to a grinding halt in London. But I can't help but be typically English and refuse to acknowledge the darker skies and ominous clouds, that have seemingly come to stay. This floral number from Asos is the perfect feel-good dress. It is so easy to transition from day to evening, adding jewels and heels and you are ready to go! Plus the figure enhancing design and fabric mean it is perfect for a cocktail fuelled, indulgent dinner! It creates Kim Kardashian-esque curves instead of unwanted lumps and bumps! The material is a thick scuba type fabric, but it isn't garish or itchy, instead it gives a smooth, hourglass silhouette.




I was lucky enough to be illustrated by the extremely talented Jessica Withey. Who has done the most glamorous and flattering drawing of me in this dress! Did anyone else read in the newspaper about the woman who spent £130,000 to look like a caracterure sketch of her done on holiday?! Although I wouldn't go that far, I would like to say a huge thank you to Jessica for taking the time to draw little old me. I can not recommend her highly enough! 



My Top Five Summer Essentials

Sunday, 17 August 2014

I know I'm a bit late to the party, but I have been perfecting my summer essentials during my travels. And along the way I have found some magical "must have" products.


A Big Floppy Hat

I don't know about anyone else, but my face is the only part of my body that does not tan, it just burns! I have always covered up my face with some super high SPF and popped on a baseball cap. However, the recent trend in effortlessly chic big floppy hats has made stylishly shading my face a lot easier. For my recent trip to Hong Kong I popped this Oasis beauty in to my ASOS shopping bag. And lucky you guys it has now been reduced in the sale! Bargain. I particularly like the bow on the back, I think it gives a ladylike old Hollywood type feel to it.

Wednesday, 13 August 2014

I am so sorry to repeat the usual "I have been soooo busy.." excuse, but that is unfortunately, definitely the case! I have been a bit MIA these past couple of weeks, travelling as well as running around attending some fun events. But I am back! I thought I would share some snaps of what I have been up to :) I'll be back to my regular posting and already have some very exciting topics lined up for you guys, so stay tuned!



An Evening Of Ice Cream Indulgence With Häagen-Dazs

Thursday, 24 July 2014



On Monday evening I had the pleasure of being whisked (excuse the ice cream pun) away to an evening of deluxe ice cream indulgence with Häagen-Dazs. The sun was definitely shining in London and what better weather for an ice cream tasting treat! 






Luxuriously Detox Your Skin With Espa

Tuesday, 22 July 2014

In the past couple of weeks I have been having a sort of detox. This has included juicing and clearing out unwanted clothes (not only a fantastic excuse to go shopping! but also very rewarding to donate to local charity shops.) Alongside these activities I have introduced the Espa "Essential Cleansing Mask*" in to my skincare routine and as a result my skin has never looked better.





Vichy Launch @ The Ham Yard Hotel | OOTD

Thursday, 17 July 2014



On Monday evening I was treated to an evening of delights with Vichy, to celebrate the launch of their new product "Normaderm Night Detox." The event took place at the newly launched and super stylish Ham Yard hotel in Soho. The hotel's decor is luxurious with a contemporary and fun twist. I particularly enjoyed this neon light installation by the bar!





Bicester Village | OOTD

Wednesday, 9 July 2014

Today I had a spontaneous shopping trip to Bicester Village. I've been going to Bicester since it opened and you really can get amazing designer bargains there. It is always fun to browse Prada, Dior, Jimmy Choo, Gucci etc. and be comforted that there is some sort of discount. So really... those Jimmy Choos are a necessity? right?! Although, this time I was very well behaved and mainly window shopped.
