Bomber Jacket - all you need right now

Happy Sunday everyone!

I hope you all got to enjoy the lovely weather we had over the last couple of days! 

If there's one thing your wardrobe needs right now, it's a bomber/baseball jacket! 

After a long winter of wearing neutral colours I just couldn't help myself but to fall for this pink one - to me pink is such a feel good colour and perfect for spring/summer! 

I love the "sports luxe" feel about this jacket and it adds just the right amount of cool to my usual boyfriend / stand smith combo!

Calligraphy Workshop with Lamplighter London

Calligraphy workshop with Nib+Ink, Nib+ink book, Lampligher London

Happy Weekend everyone! 

Yesterday I attended a modern Calligraphy Workshop held by the lovely Chiara Perano of Lamplighter London.

Calligraphy was one of the things I've always wanted to try but was always a little worried as my handwriting is really not the best!

The workshop was set at Habitat's gallery in Chelsea which was turned into something that would make for the perfect Pinterest pin - just dreamy!

We've started out with the black ink tracing over calligraphy guides a few times to get a feel for the shapes of the letters and how to hold the nib the right way. 

Once I got the hang of pressing harder on the down strokes, and more lightly on the up strokes it started to become really fun and quite relaxing!


After we all gave our best on the paper it was time for some snacks, shake out our fingers and some serious picture taking! 

 I really loved the scandi style open sandwiches and the cakes were as delicious as they looked.

Based on Chiara's new book "Nib + Ink" she has created her own neon pink ink (how exciting!) which we got to try next!  

Writing with pink ink requires a slight slower pen movement,  which made writing a little easier for me and I shall be writing in neon pink ink from now on! 
 

We got to keep the nib, ink and a copy of her lovely book, and I think I found myself a new hobby. 

The "Nib + Ink" book is a great way to start with Calligraphy or to perfect your skills with plenty practice sheets and great tips.

Thank you for the lovely afternoon and taking such good care of us!

Happy Thursday everyone! I hope you are all having a great day! 

This shearling jacket has to be one of my favourite Zara buys, next to these cool boyfriend jeans and oversize jumper. 

As much as I love my Stan Smith trainers, I felt like I needed another pair of white trainers and these   Adidas Superstar trainers  have been on my wishlist since my teenage days!

Happy Tuesday everyone and happy Women's Day! 

I've always had a thing for bold prints and colours and when I saw this gorgeous All Things Mochi cape, it was love at first sight! 

If you follow my Instagram you will see that I live in flats but I love wearing these Stuart Weitzman overknee boots, which are surprisingly comfortable (considering the heel and all)! 

To finish off this look I've added these gorgeous Carat London pieces - this jewellery brand is my latest discovery! I love their beautiful and fun designs.

LFW bag essentials

Happy Wednesday everyone! 


During Fashion Week I like to keep my bag as small and light as possible so there's only room for some key items. 

One of my key items are sunglasses - LFW week means long days and short nights so I'm more than happy to cover my tired eyes with these cool Taylor Morris sunnies. 

Being hydrated is really important to stay fit during these hectic couple of days and Vita Coco is the perfect refreshment. 

I'm really obsessed with the perfumes from Miller Harris and this rose scent puts me instantly in a good mood. 

During winter months my hands get really dry so I make sure I'll always have a tube of MalĂ©e hand cream with me. 

Last but not least we have some bright, red lipstick - you just never know what life throws at you. 

Thank you Vita Coco for sending over this cute, personalised kit - these coconut water boxes were true life savers.

With mother's day just around the corner I've teamed up with Aspinal of London to show you some lovely gift ideas! 

First up is this cute and elegant heart coin purse which is perfect for holding all her coins and it's a sweet reminder every time she reaches for that purse.

 

This stylish and sleek IPad mini sleeve is the perfect accessory for any tech-savy mum. The case can be personalised with up to four initials which adds a lovely personal touch to it.

Happy Tuesday everyone! 

Yesterday I took over the La Redoute Instagram account for day 4 of LFW and after a very hectic weekend it was all about being casual but chic. 

I've decided to stick with something I'd usually wear and went for a stripey jumper, boyfriend jeans, trainers and this gorgeous black coat - which is currently on sale!

I'm so glad I went for trainers and this lovely tan cross body bag bag as LFW means always a lot of rushing around.
