The weather situation in London right now is in dire straits, but I'm convinced that the best antidote to this much rain is "optimistic shopping". I've been smothering myself in pastel colours and lashings of my new favourite bronzer & plummy mascara and hoping that the next time I look out of the window I'll see sunshine.

What's been putting a smile on your face during these April showers?

LOCATION: Cirque Du Soir, Ganton Street.

An exciting collection of designers showcased their wares in a quirky, circus themed club. I sipped on a white wine spritzer whilst chatting to some of the lovely designers who were eager to introduce their collections.


A truly unique customisation concept: Delicate and bespoke jewellery that symbolises a few bars of your favourite piece of music. Salima is classically trained and explained how the 5 level music stave was the inspiration for her elegant bracelets, necklaces and rings. I absolutely loved this "Music" collection and each piece was beautifully made.

Zeynep Tosun's collection was a breath of fresh air and I kept going back to her rails for a triple-take at her bright and beautiful pieces. She has worked with the Alberta Ferreti design team and collaborated with Jonathan Saunders and is definitely a rising star to keep an eye on. Her unique prints, bold use of patent leather and unusual metal detailing make this collection truly outstanding and I am very excited to see what she does next.

A small collection of bright jeans and this super-awesome Michael Jackson red leather jacket with glittering sleeves. Can you imagine this over a white tee and black skinnies? BAM!

Both fiercely sexy and seriously high-performance fitness wear designed for a totally kick-ass workout. Miss Matahari was an absolute darling and told me about the theme of empowerment that she had in mind with this collection whilst pointing out the glimpses of beading detail, hot pink pieces and light-reflective strips that made this collection a feast for the eyes.  This collection was the BOMB and I would feel like superwoman working out in her pieces. 


Chanel tweed meets Olivia Palermo meets alluring secretary meets Alexander Wang jersey and leather piping. I'd like this whole collection to be my wardrobe, please.

Last but certainly not least - Cleo B, a British brand founded by Cleo Barbour. The theme of this collection was what I would describe as Sixties With Swagger, showcased perfectly by creative and brave use of musical imagery. Surprisingly bold details cropped up as accents on flats, as a bag in itself, as cutouts on boots and even as an amazing heel on their shoes. I'd never heard of Cleo B before but I loved this collection and really hope that it will be available for purchase in their boutique. Wouldn't these pieces be perfect for everything from editorials to young starlets on the red carpet?

A big THANK YOU to Katch PR for inviting me :)

What do you think of the collections?


❤ What I've been loving lately ❤


I know, I've been totally MIA for a while: recovering from LFW, hanging out with all my lovely friends who have all decided to move to London (city of champions), applying for jobs, taking part in a European Havaianas campaign, chilling with my fam, attending a press day or two and just generally reminding myself why I love the UK.
