With the incredible summer of sport that just passed, you’d be hard pushed to not want to get active somehow. But if you’re not a professional athlete with endorsements and sponsorship deals, the challenge is how to fit it into your life in a realistic way.

You know when you reach adulthood, do you get a little jealous of the back-to-school season, ’cause kids get to buy a bunch of new clothes to get them ready for the new term? That’s not just me, right? Well, as we segue into Autumn/Winter, you’re probably thinking about jazzing up your work wardrobe. We can’t let school kids out shine us. So, you know how I love my readers and love for you all to look supafly all the time, right? Ya huh. So, to help keep you in stylish threads, I’m offering you the chance to win a £200 Austin Reed shopping spree! Woo hoo!

Last week, I heard about, Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has to Travel, a new documentary about the legendary fashion editor of Harpers Bazaar and Vogue, and vowed see it immediately. Lucky I found out about it when I did because it’s only showing for a number of blink-and-you’ll-miss-it dates in the UK. I treated myself to a viewing at the Curzon Mayfair on Saturday afternoon and have felt inspired and creative ever since. I cannot recommend this film to you enough.

Well it looks like there will never come a time where Knomo bags don’t make it onto my favourite things list. NEVAH! I don’t know how they keep bettering themselves, but they do. Yes I know, I’ve written about them before here and here, but their Autumn/Winter range is now out and this bag, the ‘Alice’ as it’s known, will be my new staple accessory du jour (and all of the jours most likely for the rest of time). Doesn’t look like your average laptop bag, does it? Of course it doesn’t, because it’s filled not only with my laptop, but a whole bunch of awesomeness. Check it out…

I love finding a bit of fashion greatness in unexpected places. You know, those bargain fashion finds, that just happen to pop up at the most unexpected of times. My mother and I are huge fans of shopping in dress exchanges – if you’re unfamiliar with the concept, these are basically consignment stores where rich ladies take their designers duds that they no longer want. It just so happens on a mother-daughter day out, we came across this skirt and Lordy Lord, what an incredible fashion find it was.

Probably since the camera was first invented, there was some woman saying ‘Wait! Let me just retouch my lippy!’ before allowing the shot to be taken. And so, through the ages, women have shied away from the lens and a new study by Photobox confirms that the laydeez are just not fans of the snapshot. So, what are the underlying reasons why?

I was recently featured as one of eleven bloggers from around the world to be interviewed on what fashion means to us over on The Global Girl. Click here to check it out.

It’s no secret that I love me some Wolford. I’ve worked fairly closely with them over the past year and a half with a view to getting them more involved with blogging and social media. So it gives me great pleasure to announce that I’ll be hosting the first ever Wolford blogger event on August 30th at Westfield London where I’ll introduce their pretty fantastical Autumn/Winter collection. I’m insanely excited about it, not simply because I love the brand, but to be able to share this with other bloggers I admire and respect. WAH Nails will be there to make people’s fingertips look supafly, DJ Radi Dadi will be spinning some tuneage, champagne, canapes and plenty of fun times will be had.
So stay tuned – I’ll obviously be talking about it in the coming week and live tweeting, Instagraming etc from the event itself so you can all be there with me.
Definitely one for the #HosieryPorn lovers!
*Please note: This is an invite only blogger event*

As a resident of East London, it’s been hard to avoid the buzz about PUMA YARD. The past few weeks I’ve seen PUMA YARD murals popping up all over Shoreditch. My curiosity was peaked. What was this mysterious YARD they were referring to? Where was it? And most importantly, when could I go? Anticipation built and then finally, all was revealed as it opened its doors on Friday. So, I took a stroll down Brick Lane to the Old Truman Brewery to get a slice of this YARD action.

It’s the summer of sport! And with so much awesomeness happening over the next few weeks, Puma have brought me on board to do a spot of blogging for them. They have a great sports/lifestyle space on Brick Lane called Puma Yard and as I’m an East London resident, they wanted to get a feel for what life’s like for me as I live, work and play in this part of the city. So, keep an eye out here and over on Puma.com and Puma.com/YARD for updates. Exciting times!
