Yo Yo it’s Friday Biatches and there’s no one more excited about that than me! Helloooo Lay in.  This week's been long but I have some mega exciting news on the career front that I will be sharing with you very soon so it’s not been all bad, actually in fact it’s been bloody fantastic!  Watch this space…

I went for double denim (longstanding fave), my superstars (apologies for wearing them with everything!) and an old Topshop caged body which I totally forgot I had (dontcha just love it when that happens!).  

Repping a total 90’s vibe with this look which is so me, doesn't matter what look I am going for it always has a 90’s throw back edge, my fave era evs.

Trainer wishlists with Lyst

Now I don’t know about you but I am a real list maker, I have all sorts of notebooks for various lists such as my blog, work and then just a general to-do list.  Outfit planning normally falls into both To-do and blog notebooks as it’s all about planning looks for shoots and of course planning outfits for weekends out with the girls! 
All incredibly important don’t you know. 

I was recently contacted by Lyst who are a fashion site offering their customers some where to shop designers and stores all in one place!   As well as this there are options to create lists of things you want to buy, follow your favourite brands and be the first to see the newest trends and latest looks.  I was all over the list making aspect of the site as I am currently on the hunt for some new trainers! 

The sun is currently determining my footwear as its too hot for boots and maybe still a little to breezy for sandals so that calls for a new trainer purchase!  I currently have all the usual suspects, the Adidas Superstars, Converse, Superga’s, Nike Air Max and New Balance.

 So I turned to Lyst for Inspo…

Come payday I'll be heading straight over to my 'Trainer Hype' lyst and will be purchasing one of the above, the question is, which trainer?

Pocket London with Shopa

Hello Hello!  Hope everyone's weekend has been a good one!  
I had my lovely friend Amy come to stay with me and we enjoyed a very nice time indeed.  Friday we dined out at Arepa which is a fabulous Venezuelan restaurant in Haggerston then Saturday was spent mooching around Hackney enjoying Prosecco in London Fields and food from Broadway Market.  A perfect Saturday.

 I was recently contacted by Shopaa shopping platform connecting retailers with customers offering an easy online shopping experience from a selection of brands!  Shopa got in touch and asked me to style up a piece from MIC Louise Thompson's brand Pocket London and I am in love with this sweatshirt!  Its the perfect Summer jumper - cropped, lightweight with a cool and colourful print.  Styled with ripped jeans, chunky boots, scrunchie and my obligatory gold accessories it oozes a 90's vibe.

She popped the Question!


Hello lovely people, obvious opening question  - Are you all enjoying the SUN!!! 
 London has come alive this past week and I for one am certainly revelling in this glorious weather, I even walked a bit of the way to work last night and this morning!  The kick I have in my step today is not just down to the weather but also down to the fact that last night my best friend of 17 years asked me to be her CHIEF BRIDESMAID!  I was in complete shock as her and her fiancĂ© drove up to London to surprise me and pop the question, now that’s pure friendship in my eyes and I was totally honoured.  Roll on 2017!
 Now I have shared my happy news I also thought I would share Tuesday outfit, god love the light evenings as I can now snap my work looks!  Skirts, brogues and slogan Tee’s are the focus of this look actually, this whole week has been a mix up of skirts with various different shoe styles.  I’s waaaaay too hot for trousers on the dreaded central line tube!
 What have you guys been wearing now the suns out, I need to start updating my Summer wardrobe so let me know your favourite Summer pieces!

London Life

So I thought this post was about due as 8 months ago I moved to London and can honestly say it was the best move and decision I have ever made.  London is everything everyone says it is, fast paced, hectic, smelly, loud, expensive...   

I spend every morning and every night under the arm pit of some hairy man (sadly, never a hot man).  Once the suffocating commute is done I am rushing down the street tutting at the slow walkers as I make my way to work.  I am 40 minutes early, but yes I am still rushing, because in London everyone rushes.  Once the rushing is done I get into work, do what I need to do before breaking the daily slog up with trip out for lunch.  
Usually spending money in Pret, Itsu or at a new smoothie place it's then back to to the office until 6pm.  The rushing and commuting takes place again and its home to my lovely housemates, I'll eat, blog and then finally go to bed, absolutely exhausted.  Then repeat.

However...

Everyday I see something new whether its a cool piece of wall-art or amazing street style inspo.

I've tried foods I would never have even touched before (no joke I now eat avocado, quinoa and Buckwheat).

I have made new friends who have now become very good friends (and excellent boozing buddies)

The monthly oyster card ticket - with this card all travel at the weekend is basically free (it's not but it feels like it is).

I can officially say I work in fashion.

There is always something to do.

There are the coolest vintage shops, hidden car-boots and vintage market stalls ever in London.

My local pub shuts at 2am every Friday and Saturday night and its a proper good East End London boozer, oh and it's award winning to!

There are better places to take blog pics, better roads, houses, graffiti, walls whatever back drop you fancy London's got it.

I can finally go to Blog events with minimal drama and no expensive train ticket.

It's cultural and interesting and forces you to learn about people and things you would never have needed to before.

I regularly meet people with the same interests as me... blogging, shopping, photography, drinking *ahem*

Anyway the list could go on trust me, but I just wanted to jot a couple of notes down about our wonderful capital and my experience of moving to it.  If your thinking of moving here then do it, don't wait, do it.  I waited until I was 28 and my only regret is not doing it sooner.

#OOTD

Happy Friday seems to be the most appropriate way to start this post, knowing I don't have to set an alarm tomorrow is literally the best feeling ever.  Although I have nothing to get up for I am still having a quiet one tonight, it's 10pm and I am already in bed, absolute party animal, I know.  

I'll keep this short and sweet as I am insanely tired but here's a quick shot of what I wore this week when I went out and over indulged in famous Brick Lane curry.  
Thank god the outfit was baggy...
