Florals, Capes & Kimonos

FASHION

A few years ago I was window-shopping with one of my best friends when I picked up another sparkly sequin jacket. She looked over at me and insisted I had enough. Sequins were not going to be in fashion forever. I disagreed. Fashion trends come and go…and always, somehow, come back. Reinvented, brighter, softer, sharper, and edgier, with oomph, glam and bejazz. I preached it as though I was conducting a powerful sermon on a Sunday morning. I’m pretty sure I even ended it with an Amen too. Channelling my Mother, I very recently turned around and said those four…

Slogan T-Shirts & Fluffy Feet

FASHION

Board games are meant to be fun…until you decide to play Monopoly. The one board game that can make and break relationships. Everyone is a master realtor when this board game comes out. About fifteen years ago, my family and I were sitting around the table for a game of Monopoly. It was going to be one of those long drawn out Sundays, until the football came on and my grandfather would hand over his winnings to my sister and the game would be over, just as the whistle was blown for kick off on the pitch. She would be left…

Making it happen for M.Gemi

FASHION

I have this weakness for pointed flats. There, I said it. I have friends who have amazing collections of high heels by Christian Louboutin, Jimmy Choo, Prada, YSL, the list goes on…but I’m a collector of beautiful comfortable flat shoes. Mainly because I live in London and haven’t mastered the Carrie Bradshaw walk around the city in heels look, or maybe because I sometimes look like a baby gazelle trying to walk for the first time! I learnt the hard way, that when they aren’t made of leather, your toes have little chance of surviving the day, but when you…

Arigato Axel Arigato!

FASHION

Over a decade of living in the UK, I think I have finally found my go to all year round shoes. I have gone through countless winters wearing flat shoes, to the dismay of my nearest and dearest. Call it the trials and tribulations of finding the perfect pair of boots, but that’s for another post. Sneakers, specifically Axel Arigato sneakers! Yes, that’s right, the rubber sole has really made a massive comeback. Now I might be late to the Sneaker party, but maybe I hadn’t found the perfect pair. All the big brands have introduced sneakers into their lines,…

Stepping into Spring in a Maxi Dress

FASHION

I spent the morning staring out at grey clouds, two birds hopping across the grass in the garden, and my toes tucked under the radiator against the wall. Deep down inside I was willing the flowers to start blooming, the rain to stop and for brighter, sunnier, and warmer days to be upon us. Spring where are you? Lo and behold last week started with sunshine and warmth. It’s still the early days of Spring where it’s not quite warm enough to leave the house without a light coat or warm cardigan, but you’re dying to wear blush nudes, maxi…

Louis Vuitton Meets Anya Hindmarch

FASHION

Louis Vuitton meets Anya Hindmarch in a new exciting way in my handbag collection. I love both the brands individually, but never thought of combining the two into one special handbag…until now! The luxury handbag market has grown at such a rapid rate, and styles and trends are forever changing. It’s sometimes hard to keep up. First you covet handbags covered in monograms and logos; then the trends change to simple classic designs, with barely seen logos, radiating understated luxury. Whatever your preference, you can personalise and dress up your handbags with accessories for your accessories. Bag charms, stickers, twilly’s and…

Crazy for Cashmere Sweaters

FASHION

My absolute favourite material in the world is cashmere and I am crazy for cashmere sweaters. I’m a complete sucker for it, whether it’s Spring, Summer, Autumn or Winter. If I see cashmere, my shopping radar is on and any form of restraint flies straight out the window. I love how soft and delicate cashmere sweaters feels against your skin and the amount of warmth that comes from such a light fabric. The best part about cashmere sweaters is how well you can layer it in the Winter, but still wear it in Spring. The obsession began when I would borrow…
