December Lingerie of The Month

Colourful Classics...Stella McCartney's Clara Whispering.

 The Clara Whispering range is an all-time favourite and these stretch-lace underwire bras are sexy and comfortable, with stunning scalloped straps designed to be seen.
With a combination of silk and lace, this bra is an ultimate classic: super comfy and very sexy. If the bright orange and pink is too much colour for you, the simple nude and navy option is available.

Christmas Party Edit

Firstly I want to apologise for the lack of posts over the last few weeks, I was super busy with my university project deadline and spent all of my time sewing non-stop!

For the next few weeks I'll be posting a lot more regularly to help you all get into the Christmas spirit with gift ideas, winter warmers and more, starting with a party edit!

Last week was my sisters work Christmas party at Battersea Evolution, with the theme being 'New York, New York'.

The best part about having a sister is sharing clothes. We have an open wardrobe rule which means we both share anything and everything (there's a few T&Cs hehe). Nita wore my ASOS Premium dress whilst I wore a H&M dress which she bought recently.

November Swimwear of The Month

Biondi has always been a favourite brand of mine. Not only do they have the cutest boutique but also a lovely team behind the company and it's always good to pop in and catch up with everyone.

When I first interned two summers ago, one particular style caught my eye: the Nebu beaded set. Made from a metallic fabric and gold beads on the top, it's such a great bikini for showing off your tan!
I paired the set with a pair of statement Miu Miu cat-eye sunglasses in a red glitter.

Gifting Made Easy With Laura Mercier

Is it ever too early to start thinking about Christmas presents? 
I'm the kind of girl who knows exactly what she wants and isn't afraid to hint it... 

Working in Harvey Nichols definitely has its perks. I'm surrounded by the most incredible brands in the beauty department and always know when something new comes in.
Every year, there's one thing in particular that I watch out for, and its Laura Mercier's Christmas gift sets.

First up is something every girl needs in her handbag... 'Little Indulgences'a selection of Hand & Body cremes: Ambre Vanillé, Almond Coconut Milk, Crème Brûlée and Tarte au Citron. I recently gifted my friends one of these for her birthday and she looooooves it! 
You can buy it at Harvey Nichols here, and be quick as we are currently offering 15% off this set for our Christmas Shopping Party event which ends tomorrow!

October Lingerie of The Month

A modern take on a classic... behold Stella McCartney's Ava Dancing.

 This low cut, balconette bra is made from geometric mesh with a French Leavers trim.  I love how simple and sexy this set is, it's a feminine black classic every girl needs in their underwear drawer!
The mesh fabric looks amazing up close on the sheer, light cups and the thin straps feature cute black bows!

The cold-pressed juice craze has no sign of slowing down, so I thought I would give it a go and see what all the fuss was about!
I tried and tested 4 flavours of the Plenish cold-pressed organic juices. These colourful juices are made from fresh fruit and vegetables and rich in nutrients. Please note my reviews below are purely based on taste and appearance; I did not complete a Plenish cleanse or do 5:2 diet week.

Osman: Perfect 5

Another exclusive collection has landed at Harvey Nichols! This time it's Osman's Perfect Five..

I've posted below a few "behind the scenes' photos from the shoot, which was taken outside on the Fifth Floor terrace, as well as indoors in the stunning Style Concierge area.

This week I received tickets to the McQueen show which was playing at the Royal Haymarket. I've been obsessed with McQueen for years, he was such an influential designer and made a huge contribution to British fashion. I can get lost reading about his life, watching his ground-breaking collections shows and looking at artistic editorial spreads.

The luxurious interior makes you feel as though you've stepped into a time machine, with large gold framed mirrors, delicate wall lights and vintage wallpaper. 
The choreography was stunning, it felt exactly like what a McQueen show would be like. With stylised movement and balletic scene changes, there were also some interesting characters: a set of ginger twins (seen in 'The Outlook' AW99), the incredible ostrich feather dress (seen on Björk)  and a sample pair of the Armadillo boots (seen in 'Atlantis' SS10).

September Swimwear of The Month

Go for prints and colour this summer with Heidi Klein's Rio De Janeiro Rope. 
I love this print! It's one of my favourite bikinis and I think the hot pink looks amazing with a tan! I actually bought a different style brief as they were reversible with hot pink on one side and bright orange on the other.

Beauty Haul

Every pay day I love to work my way through the long list of beauty products I've spotted that month ... here's what caught my eye this time

Roller Lash
I received a sample of this before it came out with my Elle subscription, immediately fell in love and had to buy it as soon as I had the chance.

Nice and Spicy lipliner
Let's just say I've been waiting for this for a while... Every time I head to the Mac department they never seem to have it. So glad I managed to get my hands on it!

Denim love

Denim is making a serious comeback, thank you Alexa!!
The 90s denim vibe is what it's all about this summer and we all fell in love with the denim playsuits, a-line skirts and cool dungarees from Alexa Chung's collaboration with AG Jeans which is out now.

July Lingerie of the Month

Simple pleasures are life's little treasures

 This month I've chosen the lovely Stella McCartney 'Millie Drawing' set as my lingerie of the month. The delicate lace contrasts perfectly with the sporty band and is super comfortable but still so pretty.

It also comes in classic nude and new season navy. The colour combinations are so fun to wear and look great under loose tank tops.

A Day at Wimbledon

On Friday I was invited to the men's semi-final of the Wimbledon Championship by the lovely Pringle family.

It was a hugely intense match which saw Djokovic beat Gasquet and soar into the finals, where he went onto beat Federer to be crowned Champion once again! I couldn't help but take photos of everything, the weather was perfect and the atmosphere was amazing!

Thursday, 9 July 2015


Each summer we all go crazy for Wimbledon. The big, green tennis balls and the giant screen go up at the Bluebird, Pimm's becomes our staple drink and we over indulge on strawberries and cream, while sporting our tennis whites. 
But its not always the players that get people talking.. it's what everyone is wearing. 

If you're lucky enough to have bagged yourself a ticket, I've put together two outfits which are sure to get you on the best dressed list...

There's something about Vivienne...

After a little jewellery clear-out I came across a Vivienne Westwood set I was gifted on my 19th birthday. I feel like I have neglected these gorgeous pieces and have decided to dedicate a blog post to them! 

They are perfect for an understated day look or as a delicate finish to an evening outfit.

Everyday Make-Up

A common mistake people make is applying too much make up during the day. 

I know we all wish we could be like Khloe Kardashian and have our very own glam squad who paint our faces till we are picture perfect. But the reality of it is: it's far too time-consuming. I mean who really has the time in the morning? I'd rather hit the snooze button!
What I'm using:

What's the time?

If you've ever found yourself deciding which watch to buy, whether for yourself or a friend, I may have just found the perfect brand.... 

Olivia Burton

A vintage yet modern brand that looks to traditional styles and catwalk trends when designing their collections. Olivia Burton watches are dainty, minimal and most importantly affordable. 

And if the lovely styles aren't enough, Olivia Burton is an affordable brand. The prices starting from a purse-friendly £65, so there is no reason at all why you shouldn't treat yourself or a friend to one!

This swimsuit is perfect for cocktails at the bar or lounging by the pool. The bright blue colours compliment the sun and the sea perfectly, and I love the crossover straps and the low back, I've paired this with my Miu Miu glitter cat-eye sunglasses.

Baking.... Brownies

It's no secret that I'm a food lover, especially when it comes to desserts. I will always go for a dessert over a starter on any menu! 

My favourite past time is baking... those of you who know me will know I love my late night baking sessions, and you can always rely on me for a delicious and healthy treat. Just ask the Harvey Nichols Stylists, they all love them!

One treat in particular which is insanely delicious is my dark chocolate brownies. When it comes to brownies, there are so many different recipes everywhere, with everyone using different ingredients and making them in their own special way. After experimenting with different recipes and mixing around ingredients, I have finally created my own:

Kerastase Review

Frizzy hair has always been a problem for me. From having a mini afro when I was younger, to the curls I have now - I always had to deal with frizz.
One question people with curly hair frequently get asked is "Why don't you brush your hair everyday?" The answer is simple: we all know when you brush those curls out the hair turns into a complete frizzball!

The weather was lovely, not a rain cloud in sight, I came at the perfect time.

Blog is back

Welcome to my blog! 

As a Stylist for Harvey Nichols, I'm lucky enough to have access to some amazing designers and the latest fun in fashion. I'll be posting my favourite looks from each week, the latest lifestyle trends and each month will dedicate a post to 'Lingerie/Swimwear of the Month'.

As you'll see, my style definitely varies and I love trying out new things. Key accessories, statement jewellery and bold make up can change an outfit completely, so I will be including the details of all the pieces in my posts. 

The blog will also be a glimpse into showcases, events and even the latest offers in store and online at Harvey Nichols.
