Gold & Marble

October 25, 2014

interior-1

I am a huge fan of gold and marble accents in interior, which we are playing a lot on in our new home. I particularly like it in kitchens and bathrooms; I love the combinations of soft grey with the shiny brass look.

Whilst counting down the weeks until we can move in, here are some of my favourites interior pics – many of which I used when designing our very own kitchen.

Enjoy!

Smokey Eyes

Bobbi Brown Smokey Eyes Collection 

When it comes to party make-up, anything with the word smokey or shimmer in it (preferably combined), I am pretty much sold. My make-up is very paired back and neutral during the day, so when nightime falls and I have somewhere (preferably fabulous) to go to, I bring out the more glamorous side of me.

My Style : After Dark with REISS

REISS-2

I am all about day-to-night outfits, but every now and again its fun to step out of my comfort zone and glam it up a notch. The best part of a big night out is often the time before, preparing with a soak in the bath, getting my hair and nails ready, and most importantly – choosing my outfit.

On My Mind: Day-to-Night

October 19, 2014

Nike Trainers / Topshop Jeans / Mango Jumper / Daniel Wellington Watch / MSGM Coat / Whistles Heels  / Hush T-Shirt / Atterley Road Bag  

Autumn is well and truly here, and I for one cant wait to get my wool coats outs (this one from MSGM is pretty much perfection!). With the right coat, you can dress up, or play down any outfit – just replace your trusted Nike kicks for these fab suede heels from Whistles. Play with a bit of colour, with this super fresh red jumper, and add some clean and minimal accessories – the perfect day-to-evening outfit.

Happy Sunday peeps!

It will be completely separate from this blog, and the website is officially launching this January.

In the meantime, here is a quick overview of what its all about!

Excuse the lack of content and more frequent updates – I am currently a bit of a nomad, travelling a lot and living out of a suitcase here and there, whilst waiting for our new place in London to be done up!

Black.co.uk Cashmere Scarf / Y.A.S Leather Jacket (similar here on sale) / Urban Outfitters Jeans / Prada Bag / Zara Jumper / Zara Shoes

The weather is certainly cooling down, and I am embracing being all wrapped up in thicker layers and scarves. I recently invested in this dream of a navy cashmere scarf from Black – its so soft, big and warming – love it! A classic investment for my autumn/winter wardrobe.

AESOP x A.P.C Fine Fabric Care

October 8, 2014

I LOVE AESOP…

So you can imagine the joy of having so many of their boutiques whilst in Sydney a few months back (being an Australian brand)! Whilst exploring the amazing Paddington area (a must-go for small boutiques and local designers) – I found one of my favourite ones so far. I could literally have bought the entire shop, but due to our already overweight luggage, I settled for one item; their Fine Fabric Care – created exclusively by A.P.C for AESOP.

I am always doing so much hand wash, and this super luxe and insanely delicious liquid, has done wonders for all my silk and cashmere pieces – leaving them super soft and smelling lush.

A little every day luxury like this goes such a long way… and worth every penny (plus the extra weight in our luggage!).

Enjoy,
