Classy Time – Jord Watches

I last bought a watch about 10 years ago – a haphazard purchase in Heathrow airport waiting to board a flight and move to Tokyo. It was a D&G watch, it made me feel fancy. Watches are hard to pick. Like handbags, I feel like they say so much about you and your style. So,...

Bangs Meets Never Underdressed

A month or so ago, I was asked to be part of a photo shoot for Never Underdressed. They had set about the rather ambitious task of picking out the best dresses for the Spring/Summer season. Sounds easy enough, but this was no half-assed approach my friends. Oh no! They called in over 2000 dresses...

Body Confidence Wobbles

I love my body. I really do. The more I’ve gotten into fitness over the past few years, the more appreciation I have for it. But last week, I experienced a bit of a wobble in my body confidence and it hit me like a ton of bricks. I became overwhelmed with emotions I haven’t...

Bangs & a Bun x New York Times

  Last week I was contacted by the New York Times to write a short piece for their website. Let’s file that first sentence there under ‘Things I Never Thought I’d Say’. Anyhoo, they were doing a piece about how casual American fashion is and wanted me to chip in with my thoughts. See, about...

Why You Should Be a Mentor

I never thought I would be a mentor to anyone. It’s a nice idea, but I didn’t think I had anything in particular to offer. Over the past couple of years though, I’ve kind of stumbled into it and without really realising it, it has become the area of my life that I’m most passionate...

How Will You Handle Going Grey?

Last weekend, I was getting my haircut. I’ve had the same hairdresser since I was 17 and we were discussing how my hair had changed. Just then, he found two silver strands of hair nestled in my fringe. He made a move to yank them out. ‘No! Don’t!’ I said. ‘I’ve been cultivating those!’ The...

I Heart Liebeskind Bags

I first came across Liebeskind handbags somewhere online and found them utterly swoon-worthy. Try as I might though, I couldn’t find them in any shops. It’s a German label and ze Germans get it so right in the fashion stakes as far as I’m concerned. Anyhoo, I’d daydream over the bags online sometimes, then when...
