Chilled Friday Nights

Sometimes, every now and then you just need a chilled night in, snuggled under the duvet with a lorry load of chocolate, a good book and netflix.  It's no secret I love a good night out but when it comes down to it, I'm a geek at heart and these day's staying in is just as high on my agenda as going out.  

If I am not going out then the minute I step through my front door it's literally bra off, hair up and PJ's on.  People that chill in jeans BLOW MY MIND. I need to be comfy and warm, so come this time of year it's fluffy sock and slipper combo at the ready (sooo fash-un darling). 

One blustery September afternoon I was contacted by Tommy Tou, and as if my slipper magic was very kindly sent a pair of cosy, sheepskin slipper mules. They knew the time had come for me to upgrade from the flip flop to the slipper. Yes, I wear flip flops around the house in the summer.

So this is how my Friday night set-up is looking so far, I have some friends from back home visiting which I am absolutely buzzing about - however, hopefully they'll bring their own slippers.

LFW Outfit Day 3

This post marks the end of my fashion week outfits, I did do the whole 5 days but only managed to snap 3 of my looks, which you can see HERE and HERE, not forgetting my funny outtakes from Fashion Week, which you can read/laugh at HERE.

So, for the final fash week look I kept it super-chilled - I donned my favorite ASOS jeans, teaming them with a pair of comfy Boohoo boots and my new Lindex scarf. This outfit verged on the border of laziness which was mainly due to the hangover I was battling with. 
God love a pair dark sunglasses.

The not so glamorous side to Fashion Week

Let's be honest, Fashion Week sounds a lot more glamorous than it really is because in reality it's not; instead, think sore feet, queuing, torrential rain and above all, major outfit pressure. As a blogger, I of course document and share the good stuff, but as someone who doesn't take herself to seriously and is always up for LOL's I thought why not share the bad, the ugly and the damn right funny side of fashion week. So, welcome to My Fashion Week - The Outtakes Post...

Coffee breaks between shows resulted in a major latte spillage #Glam

Day 1 was a complete wash out. Only Megs and Lizzy could look so wonderful hiding from the rain!

Remember me mentioning sore feet? Well Lizzy fell victim to the blister, thankfully she had a more comfortable choice of footwear on hand. #Glam

Street style was on point on the streets of soho this season.

 No we don't eat in posh hotels and restaurants, we go all out in Yo Sushi, after all it was Blue September! #FWIS

Another wonderful food establishment played host to our drunken food cravings. This was the night when I was only meant to stay for 1 *ahem.

After the earlier coffee spillage I mentioned dried out, we were sadly left with an attractive stain #Glam

Fashion Week isn't Fashion Week if you don't pick a spot and then have to stop to wait 10 minutes for it to stop bleeding. Linds still manages to look gorgeous whilst doing this though!

When you're taking outfit posts and then a bin lorry typically turns into the side road you decided to shoot down. Good job CarmenAmberLolliMegs and Laura knew what to do. #StrikeAPose

Loved the back drop to Fashion Week this season.

When your pal needs an eye drop hit on route to a show. Carms I'm always here for you suga. #Glam

Another food stop, naturally Pret A Manger had to feature in our Fashion Week. #HungryBloggers

Nothing rounds of Fashion Week like a Sainbury's own microwavable lasgne, garlic bread and Kinder bueno. #Glam

Well I hope you like my funny take on Fashion Week, because if you can't laugh at yourself and be a total idiot with your friends then you're just missing out in my eyes. 

Fashion Week was a blast and I was very lucky to see some amazing shows which you can check out over on my Instagram, but snapping at the usually unseen moments of one of the most glamorous week's of the year added a major fun factor to my week.

P.S I hope my lovely friends who were featured in this post will still continue to be my lovely friends!

LFW Day 2 Outfit

I attended the whole 5 days of fashion week and managed to snap 3 out if 5 of my outfits, not bad going considering I was working it this season. So here I bring you - from the pit of my bed, in a very hungover state - my outfit from day 2.  I can't stay and chat, mainly due to the fact my brain is a little crumpled and minus a few thousand brain cells following the copious amount of vodka consumed last night so I'll make this a quick one...

I need to tell you all about Lindex, a Swedish brand that is a combination of Zara and H&M - Zara quality, H&M prices.  Their first London store opened in Westfield Stratford this year and has quickly become a go-to for me for on-trend must-haves as well as the classic staples. 

I rocked my new Lindex suede immitation skirt with denim and a socks and sandal combo, adding in a metallic scrunchie, obligitory gold hoops and a neck-tie to complete the look.

A birthday morning with Radley...

Good morning lovely people! So today marks my 2nd full day as a 29 year old (what the actual F) and I am still in shock that I am nearing the end of my twenties (again, what the actual F).  

When I was 16 I assumed that by the time I was old at say, 29 - an age that is old to a 16-year-old - I would be shacked up with 2 kids and a lager lout hubby, but no, that route was not meant to be. Instead, I am living the dream in London with awesome housemates, a fabulous job for an even more fabulous company (Yes Endource!), enjoying gin cocktails with my truly amazing friends, events with brands that I love and just generally taking in all the city has to offer. 

So even though I haven't stumbled across the love of my life just yet - although if he could hurry along sooner rather than later that would be much appreciated (love gods - I hope you heard that semi-desperate plea) or bought a house OR had a baby - all things that you want to do by the time you're 30, let's be honest, I must take a minute to take that pressure jacket off and remember all the fab things I have done, do and enjoy!

So with that PMA in mind I started my birthday in style and very luckily enjoyed a morning with Radley celebrating the rather lovely Keats Grove Collection. Myself and a collection of gorgeous bloggers started the morning at Keats House, which for those of you that don't know is the home of John Keats the English romantic poet.  The house sits on Keats Grove in the very beautiful Hampstead Heath which is the inspiration behind the collection.  

We began the morning by snapping away in true blogger style before being treated to a tour of the house, a lovely flashback in time where we all found ourselves getting lost in the tragic yet amazing story of John Keats. With the tour done, it was onto a calligraphy lesson with the incredible Megan, whose handwriting skills were second to none.  When our time at Keats House had come to an end the morning was finished off in the stylish Aubaine where I enjoyed the most divinely tasting eggs, bacon and avocado toast! 

So basically I just want to say a very BIG thank you to the amazing Radley who made my birthday morning a very enjoyable morning indeed.
