31.07.2015- Beauty Buys: OGX Argan Oil Conditioner

I don't know about you, but for me the warmer summer weather tends to be synonymous with a bit of a haircare headache. Regular readers will know that my barnet's unruly at the best of times, but factor in a combination of humidity and an even more unpredictable than usual array of temperat…

29.07.2015- Audrey Hepburn: Portraits of an Icon

A few weeks ago, I was lucky enough to be invited along to the National Portrait Gallery for a very special view of their latest headline exhibition- Audrey Hepburn: Portraits of an Icon. As one of the most photographed subjects in history, Hepburn's status as an enduring style inspiration is …

27.07.2015- Summer Style: Making a Statement

For me, the arrival of summer provides a fantastic opportunity to inject a few more splashes of colour than usual into my wardrobe, as well as experiment with styling some old favourites in lots of different ways. As I touched on in my last post, the changeable weather of late (hello soggy weekend…

25.07.2015- What I Wore Today #225

I know it's a gripe which I'm sure I share far too often on these pages, but this topsy turvy weather doesn't half make it tricky to decide what to wear of a morning! Don't get me wrong, I love the sunny spells as much as the next person, but when it's muggy and there's a s…

23.07.2015- Beauty Buys: P20 Sun Protection

One of the most important aspects of any summer beauty routine is undoubtedly making sure that your skin is properly protected from the sun. We all know that looking like a lobster is no fun, and serious sunburn is something which can well and truly put the skids on your holiday- as well as potent…

21.07.2015- Summer Style: In Flight Fashion

Although there's no denying that the prospect of going away on holiday can result in some instant zen-like calm washing over you, sometimes the process of booking a trip, packing and making it to the airport in time can be a bit of a stress fest, particularly if you're contending with hand…

19.07.2015- On the Menu: Brunch at Bourne & Hollingsworth Buildings

It's become something of a badly kept secret around these parts that brunching is one of my favourite weekend activities, and I'm firmly convinced that a leisurely catch up over tea and toast/granola/eggs is one of the most enjoyable ways to round off the week. One dining destination which…

17.07.2015- What I Wore Today #224

Although day to day I tend to live in jeans and various combinations of blouses, t-shirts and jumpers (depending, of course, on the temperature!), sometimes it's brilliant to throw caution slightly to the wind and get a little bit creative with your sartorial choices. Regular readers will know…

15.07.2015- Beauty Buys: Summer Essentials

As I've mentioned a few times in the past, when summer arrives around these parts, I tend to keep my makeup pretty minimal, particularly when confronted with the prospect of battling my way down to the Tube in soaring temperatures (an experience which I'm convinced should be an Olympic-sty…

13.07.2015- Hampton Court Palace Flower Show

Last weekend heralded the arrival of a much anticipated event in my diary- the RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show! After absolutely falling in love with the event last year, and following my exploration of Chelsea back in May, heading back for the 25th anniversary show was an absolute must. I…

11.07.2015- Fresh Fashion: Finery London

I always tend to find that the change in seasons is the perfect opportunity to get to grips with a little bit of a wardrobe detox, and a few weekends ago I dedicated some time to sorting through my current crop of clothing. Whether it's packing away the winter essentials for another few months…

08.07.2015- On the Menu: Battersea Pie Station

Although I'm a real fan of seeking out new styles of cuisine, sometimes you can't beat some foodie home comforts, can you? Tucked away in Covent Garden Market, Battersea Pie Station is a foodie destination which has been on my 'to visit' list for ages, and a little while ago I fina…

06.07.2015- What I Wore Today #223

Phew! I'm sure I'm not the only one who struggled with the little heatwave which engulfed us last week (hottest July day ever...say whaaaat??!), and finding appropriate outfits for this weather has been a right old dilemma. Whilst I've got my fair share of shorts stashed away, they ten…

03.07.2015- Beauty Buys: Essie Summer Shades

As far as summer beauty goes, I tend to keep things as pared back as possible, particularly when it comes to avoiding products which have the potential to slide off as soon as the temperatures start to rocket (#publictransportproblems!) As a result, I don't tend to find myself reaching for col…

01.07.2015- My Month in Pictures: June

I feel like I start the sort of post in the same way every month, but once again I find myself completely agog at how quickly the last few weeks have flown by. Another month has gone in a flash and it seems that summer is well and truly kicking off in earnest now, with today predicted to be someth…
