The Red Statement Blazer

April 5, 2017

I for one am a sucker for a blazer; I have a dozen different colours/styles hung up in my wardrobe (or say packed in my suitcase, depending on where I am jetting off to).

And lets be honest, we all love the classic black blazer. I mean, it is sophisticated, timeless and forever classy…how can it ever do you wrong? BUT now summer is approaching I think it is time to give the loyal black blazer a well deserved rest and maybe swap it for a statement piece instead… how about RED?

This is one of favourite blazers I bought from Zara not so long along. I like to style around the blazer or even rock it as a suit (I have the matching trousers of course).

OHHH and I don’t suggest walking around in nothing but a bikini and your blazer… just like I did for one of my most recent photo shoots. It was a lot colder than it looks… trust me.

Classic Chanel

October 15, 2015

Classic Chanel

A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous

This year marks the revolutionary Chanel shoulder bag’s 60th anniversary, and it is just as popular now, if not more than it was in 1955.

I think I speak on behalf of billions of fashion-obsessed girls when I say a classic Chanel flap bag is something you aspire to own from birth. The bags are timeless, elegant and ooze high fashion glamour.

A classic Chanel bag is one of those must have items, like Louboutin heels or a Burberry trench.

 

‘I NEED this bag in my life’

 

Here are 10 reasons as to why you should own a Chanel flap bag.

  1. Chanel regularly increases it’s prices so the bags tend to hold their value well for years. This means that buying one now isn’t too risky and can be considered an investment.
  2. You can always sell the bag and recoup most, if not all of your money.
  3. Owning one makes you feel like you are in an exclusive elite.
  4. The flap bag has ‘inspired’ so many designers to date. If you are going to buy one, you might as well get the original.
  5. The Chanel flap bag in caviar leather will last a lifetime.
  6. The bags are still price-prohibitive so not everyone will be able to own one.
  7. The Chanel Boy Bag was a game changer
  8. There is a wait list for Chanel bags which no one speaks of.
  9. There are so many Vintage Chanel bags still available on the market because they never go out of fashion.
  10. It is Chanel!

New wave of brave brides

October 14, 2015

New wave of brave brides…

Something old, something new, something borrowed, something… see-through?

New York’s Bridal Fashion Week saw near-naked models strut down the runway in some rather risky designs. It seems the desire to wear these raunchy gowns have grown from the start of the year and now sheer translucent bridal gowns are being welcomed onto the isle. Some of the gowns have a deep plunging neckline, whilst others opt for super thigh high splits or even complete nipple exposure. It is one way to demand the crowds attention and another to push bridal wear into the next millennia.

Is it time to wave goodbye to the big puffy under skirts, long statement trains, lace veils and tiaras??? Surely not… but for those brave another to wear these daring gowns make sure you kitted out with nipple covers and maybe some heavy duty tit tape.

LCF fashion Show 15 Designer: Edda Grimes

July 15, 2015

London College of Fashion (LCF) Fashion Show 15

Here are a few behind the scenes shots of me modelling for Edda Grimes at the LCF Fashion Show 11/07/15

Text taken from: http://1ndependent15.co.uk/designers/womenswear/trompe-loeil-reborn/

Edda Gimnes’s illustrated monochromatic outfits, proved a punchy statement as models transformed into real life 3D fashion illustrations by manifesting a hand drawn 2D effect that surely left us wanting for more.

Using mainly a white canvas as the backdrop to her approach, thick black ‘pen lines’ stood out for all the right reasons amongst the overlooking crowd.

The work felt almost surreal as models who resembled moving imagery caught your eye at halt, details such as gloves, headwear and eyewear were all incorporated within the dress and suit designs.

This was my ‘first look’ of the day and I thoroughly enjoyed rocking this awesome outfit. I felt like a 3D re-vamped Audrey Hepburn. I thought the accessories i.e. hats, sunnies and gloves were a fab finishing statement and completed the look perfectly.

Helping Hands

June 24, 2015

Helping Hands

Every day at Victoria station, whether its on my way to work, the gym, lunch etc I pass at least 5 homeless people. I always carry food with me; 1) Because I am always hungry… and most importantly; 2) To make sure I can give it to someone who needs it more than I.

Today I have been going around the station dropping off food packages to every homeless person possible. As my current office

and place of day to day work is located very close to an organisation named ‘The Passage’, which is on St Vincent’s Centre, Carlisle Place, London. I have decided to donate to this organisation. ‘The Passage’ runs London’s largest voluntary sector resource centre for homeless and vulnerable people: each day they help up to 200 men and women. 

The 40-bed hostel, Passage House, was officially opened on 1 March 2000. In the year 1st April to 31st March 2013, 23 residents completed a planned move on. They welcome and treat clients with respect and dignity, and find out what they need and want. They offer professional and appropriate advice and help according to the client’s needs and aspirations. An action plan is agreed with clients which is time limited with the aim of supporting clients out of homelessness.

It costs over 4million a year to The Passage going, only 40% is funded from statutory sources; the rest comes from donations from individuals, church organisations, charitable trusts and companies.

I think this organisation is fantastic and I am very happy to get behind it.

It was packed with fashionistas, stylists, press, magazine editors, bloggers, celebs, MUA’s and a whole bunch of awesome people. The DJ played all the the right tracks to get everyone in the party mood; it was a great atmosphere.

The photo booth was definitely the highlight of my night… I am a serious sucker for a fancy dress photo booth – what is there not to LOVE?!!!

When in doubt leather it out… *Arts Club*

January 19, 2015
arts club

On a ‘Hump Day’ evening I found myself dancing the night away at the Arts Club, Dover Street.

The live band/singers were just fantastic at Arts Club. I wish I had known the name of the group! They managed to get everyone up out of their seats and busting some shameless moves on the dance floor.

Even though my friends and I had a table of alcohol (ahhh)… I kept up my Dry January regime and ordered several Peter Rabbit’s (Beetroot, Orange and Carrot juice) – this kept my energy levels high for a few hours… well, it was that or the fact I had also consumed a few sugary treats consisting of coconut sorbet and a bunch of Art’s chocolates…

Shop the look: Zara leather skirt, Zara blouse and Stuart Weitzman Highland boots. Perfect for a day and night look 🙂

Fully recommend Arts Club in Dover Street!

Prague Castle

December 2, 2014

Prague Castle – My visit and experience

Prague Castle – the ancient symbol of the Czech state – is the most significant Czech monument and one of the most important cultural institutions.

Prague Castle is definitely a magical place to visit; especially in the Winter. I really enjoyed my trip to the castle and the architectural is a must see; very beautiful decor and atmosphere. I was also lucky enough to see the change of the guards at noon; this was pretty cool.

It is a lovely building steeped in history; luckily my entire tour was accompanied by the Director of the foreign Department from the Office of the President of the Republic PaedDr. Hynek Ravi. In short, I was told the history of the Castle throughout the duration of the tour whilst the Director also shared a couple of humorous stories related to the castle’s history.

I was also lucky enough to visit the rooms which tourists are not allowed access to.

Halloween Happy

November 18, 2014

My inspiration for Halloweeeeeeeen – KATY PERRY

My outfit was a cross between Cup Cake Katy and Whipped Cream Katy… Both outfits appeared in her video for California Girls!

I coloured my hair blue with some hair dye from SuperDrug. For my makeup I used a NARS & Benefit Foundation, Benefit Brows Kit, NARS Bronzer, MAC Blusher, YSL Touche Éclat, Double Lashes from ELURE, Benefit Mascara, MAC Red Lips & I drew on some thick flicks on my eye lids using a Loreal Eyeliner.

My friend Sarah dressed as a Skeleton 😛 Who knew her mum was a face paint pro!?!

We had a makeup artist at the house party in Knightsbridge so I was able to get some cute love hearts and lollipops painted on my body plus some funky facial glitter art!

I had a wicked night with great people!

RSPCA Christmas Market

November 17, 2014

On Saturday 14th November I was happy to support the RSPCA at their annual Christmas Market. This year the event was held inside the Leybourne Animal Centre which I thought was a great idea especially as the animals were able to get involved and meet lots of new people.

As an ambassador for the RSPCA, my friend Tanya and I had a few pictures at the centre to promote this great cause. We both raised the most funds for our chosen charity RSPCA in the year we competed for the Miss Earth Title. Tanya won the award in 2011 and myself in 2013.

The centre was open from 11am – 4pm.

There was a raffle, Santa’s Grotto, Lucky Dips, Tea and Cakes, Stalls selling books, gifts, second hand animal items and lots more.

All proceeds go directly to the centre.  http://www.rspca.org.uk/home
