Last week a mix of bloggers and journalists headed on the train to Bicester for the British Designers Collective. The classic hunky waiters waited on us hand and foot with cups of tea and a delightful breakfast in a box – can I just say that when you’re going from event to event to meetings [...]
It’s no lie that some women -and men- are deterred from cycling for vanity reasons. Bike riding is great, for many reasons, but it’s not always compatible with my life as a ~glamorous~ fashion writer (lol, jk). Ever arrived at a press day or a meeting with a designer rocking a triple threat of waxen [...]
Apparently the internet is saying today is Grilled Cheese Day. So I’m doing a recipe for grilled cheese, aka a cheese toastie if you’re from the UK. If the internet told me it was International Jump Off A Cliff Day you’d probs see my Instagrams of the nearing coastline.
Cheese toasties are the numero uno [...]
As someone who has spent a lot of time working around Fitzrovia and Oxford Street I fear that end of town. Unless I’ve got mega-mission I prefer to stay a little further down, so when the Regent Street peeps asked me to share my favourite haunts it was a no-brainer. A shopping trip ‘up west’ [...]
I never really get the fuss over Valentine’s Day, not least because I’m a miserable bastard, but it’s my birthday which means I neatly get to sidestep all the tacky gifts and overpriced flowers. It also means I can be the saviour of all my single/heartbroken/dead inside friends with a V-Day event that definitely isn’t [...]
A Topshop collaboration just before Fashion Week feels like a tradition now. This season we’re being treated to another helping of JW Anderson, and it seems he’s gone all school vibez. There’s a nice play between ‘good girl’ pieces like the revisited loafers and pleated skirt with a subversive, rebellious spirit that would have you [...]
Just before Christmas I was invited to take a look at Reiss’ SS13 collection, the light, drapey fabrics, fresh colours and mouthwatering prints were a welcome respite from super heavy knits, coats and scarves…
The Reiss team asked a handful of Handpicked (lol intended) bloggers including Disneyrollergirl, South Molton Style, Carina100 and SW Fashion to [...]

This weekend was family time as we had my uncle, his partner and cousin over from France. Whenever we have anyone come visit it’s always an excuse to go for a walk around Greenwich or the Docks, it’s so pretty [...]
This is the toughest bit of winter, right here. You’ve partied and eaten through Christmas, perhaps abstained through January and now it’s just gritted teeth until Spring decides to make an appearance.
Around this time my skin is just the pits, dry, dull and totally uninspiring and you know I’m all about the hydrashe. Vichy’s Idéalia [...]
Somewhere floating around You Tube is a really old video of me and La Rue impersonating a camel, it was in relation to a camel-coloured pair of shoes, but camels also excel at eyelashes. I’m a bit too much of a hippy to put glue on my eyelids and get extensions and too lazy to [...]
