Hello sunny Wednesday's! 

I am not great a goodbyes, I'm not sure who is. But today I waved goodbye to my bestie blogger friend The Stylish Cupcake as she is heading back to her home country of Norway. Although goodbyes are not my forte, I rather enjoyed our last day together with the company of fashion friend, Bethany Park. 

The three of us embarked on finding a lovely cafe for breakfast, in which we were pleasantly surprised when we stumbled across Cafe Toi & Moi in Soho. I really recommend this cafe because the iced coffees are really out of this world. It is down to you to decided which flavour shot to have from almond, caramel.... vanilla. The decor is classic, classy London accompanied by a menu that also channels this ethos. 

Afterwards we wandered down to Hot ! Mess press day on Grape Street. This brand really has me hyped for summer holidays, with bright co-ord sets and bikinis. The collections illuminated the white room in London and matched the colourful iced teas and strawberry cocktails at the bar. 

What better way to introduce a new brand than record my experience...

Have a wonderful day. 



The last two weeks of May have led me to viewing some of the best clothing SS15 collections in central London. On this humid day, I found myself at the House of Fraser HQ wandering around there press rooms of both womenswear and homeware. 

A guide talked us through the new collections and history of the brands to give us a deeper insight into why and how HOF (House of fraser) have selected these items. 

After the event, Anita Fosen (The stylish cupcake) and I wandered down to Selfridges where we picked up some free lunch with a free flash makeover from Dior and then chilled out by the beautiful Marble Arch fountains! A good day? I think so.

Have a wonderful day! xxx

Summer Ball

Most universities and colleges in the UK celebrate graduation or finishing a year of uni with a dinner or summer ball. I have never studied abroad (as of yet) so let me know if you girls and guys do to!
Here in West London we celebrated with a over 12 hour day of music, beverages and friends, called the summer ball. Previous to the event, a main topic of conversation around campus orientated around outfits and evening wear. Our ball was spilt into two sections, the casual music festival in the daytime that moved into a formal evening of music acts and suits attire. 
Above is my daytime look that I choose primarily for comfort but also for the festival vibes that the details of the hem obtained. Then moving into the evening, I recycled a dress that I was gifted from Miss Guided for the Company Magazine Blog Awards 2014. Pale peach and perfect with heeled sandals, I was very happy with my outfits choices.
Here are a few snaps below, of two of my closest friends and Ryan (my boyfriend!)xxx


The summer shindig

Bohemian is always on the cards in the summer-time. A trend fashion failure would be to not include the almighty boho style and incorporate it into your daily fashion. Tassel bags, long sleeves and festival boots could come in handy over your summer antics, so my advice would be to start looking for your favourite items now!
Since finishing my first year of university, I have been indulged in plenty of summer shindigs. The dress featured above is from Style Moi and has accompanied me on my many of my fashion and social adventures.
I am keen to see your boho style over this summer and which key pieces are most popular. If you're a blogger please pop the links in the comments!
