LONDON FASHION WEEK: DAY 5

Backstage at Anya Hindmarch...

Backstage at Ryan Lo...

By the time day 5 of fashion week rolled round I was ready for my onesie and a lot of sleep truth be told! It's funny because most people that I spoke to during fashion week always seem to say that by day 3/4 they are ready for it to be over, however, I am so glad that day 5 happened as I had a really fun day in the end!

I arrived backstage at the Anya Hindmarch show just after 9am and I absolutely have to admit I had no idea just how amazing the new collection was going to me. Me and my colleague Erica where practically squealing over the bags (as well as getting far too excited watching the run-through, and taking selfies in front of the set no less!). We luckily managed to sneak in and watch the show which involved a rotating catwalk, neon teacups and dancers in glow in the dark skeleton outfits - yes it really was that amazing!

After watching the show I headed off to the Ryan Lo presentation which was being held in the Topshop showspace, the collection/hair and makeup was all mermaid inspired (which I was loving!). The glitter pots from MAC used on the eyes were incredible, Bumble and bumble did the hair for the show and they had two looks, one was a bun folded under and the other was a half up do with crimped/wavy hair which I loved.

So, thats's a wrap on my LFW posts - it was a great season as always, roll on February!

LONDON FASHION WEEK: DAY 4 - STYLE HUB WITH TONI & GUY


I was invited down to the  Toni & Guy Hair Meet Wardrobe style hub to get me fashion week ready for day four. When I arrived I was greeted by the lovely team and whisked off to a station to get my hurrrrr did (major hands up emoji moment). At the fast hair bar they had four styles to choose from; classic, glamour, creative and casual - all of which where inspired by this years shows. I opted for the creative style as I love me a messy bun, this one was with a bit of a twist (literally) as several sections were plaited - I absolutely loved it and got so many compliments on my hair throughout the day.

It was also so nice to have my hair off my face as I was working backstage again for the Huishan Zhang and Timur Kim shows. Day four was a fairly laid back show and I had a bit of time in between shows so I popped down to The Apartment and also grabbed some dinner from The Breakfast Club in Hoxton - it was my first ever visit and it was amazing!

Psssst, I'm going to be working with  Toni & Guy Hair Meet Wardrobe for an upcoming collaboration so expect to see more soon!

LIFESTYLE: ROOM REFRESH FOR AUTUMN


A few months back I decided that it was time my bedroom needed a little refresh – nothing too drastic just a few changes to spruce it up. As I’m self employed I work from home a couple of days a week so it was important for me to keep the office side of my room separate but I still wanted to add lots of homely touches to the new look. As you can see there is still a fair way to go - I'm going to be finishing off my office space within the next few weeks, complete with wall hangings and pictures so I'll make sure I do an updated post on that for you all. 

So, where is everything from?...

Bedding: 

Monochrom cushion: 'Stockholm' from Ikea
Turqoise cushion: Wilko
Bedside table: 'Hemnes' from Ikea


Hanging space:

Rail: 'Mulig' clothes rack from Ikea (only £6.50!!)

Office space:

Throw (draped over chair): 'Tejn' from Ikea
Zig zag notebook: Primark
Mirrored jewellery box: *Debenhams
White make up pots: 'Skurar' from Ikea

So there we have it, my Autumn bedroom update! If you’re trying to refresh your room on a budget like I did then I would keep it simple with paint, curtains and bedding as you can always brighten the room with pops of colour through decorative accessories.

For me it’s always the finishing touches that ‘make’ a room, and you can pick these up super cheap from high street stores such as Debenhams, IkeaArgos and so many more - don't forget to also check out some of the big supermarkets such as Asda, Tesco and Sainsburys as they do some great homeware too. If you have a little more money to splurge on decorating and refreshing your room then I would highly recommend Laura Ashley as they have some incredible pieces - I also did a room refresh blog posts over on their blog which you can check out here.

What do you think of my room update?

LONDON FASHION WEEK: DAY 3

What I wore: Jumper: Quiz | Jeans: Oasis | Coat: Linea at House of Fraser | Bag: Therapy at House of Fraser | Trainers: BANK fashion

Backstage at Charlie May...
 Backstage at Pringle...

Day 3 of LFW for little old hungover me consisted of working backstage at Charlie May, Rejina Pyo and Pringle of Scotland with Bumble and bumble. I'd been out on Saturday night celebrating my birthday with my girlfriends over burgers and (many) cocktails, so Sunday I was feeling a little bit fragile! Luckily my backstage showtimes started around 4pm so after a hugeeeee roast dinner I headed off to day 3 of LFW...

My day started at backstage with the Charlie May presentation, I've always been a big fan of Charlie's collections with classic shapes and colour palettes I feel her collection is always so wearable. Once all the girls were finished in hair and makeup I got the chance to hang around for the run through which was great then I had to dash off to Rejina Pyo - which again was another beautiful presentation!

I finished the day off with Pringle of Scotland which was one of my favourite collections of the season, it was so delicate and beautiful - I loved it! It was incredible to be backstage and to see the collection first hand as well as the moodboard and inspiration behind the collection. I didn't hang around to watch the show as I needed to catch my train but I'm so glad I got to experience the backstage!

Some of my favourite runway looks from Pringle of Scotland...


What was your highlight of day 3?
