Moments of pleasure (Brought to you by Magnum)

September 16, 2017

Hi guys,

I hope you are all having a good week/ weekend. I’m so excited to share this post with you – Cooper has finally made an appearance on the blog!!! I can’t believe we’ve had him 4 months and he’s only making an appearance now! How CUTE is he!!! I think I may have to get him in all my blog shoots from now on haha.

As you can see from the smile on my face in all of these photos I loved shooting this, spending time on the couch with my puppy and eating ice-cream – what’s not to love! It’s something I didn’t do enough of until recently. Right before I finished my job, I was so busy and stressed that it killed me just to take some downtime. But it was something I so badly needed. Now I am two months into working for myself full time, and although I’m just as, if not more, busy I have gotten better at managing my time and knowing when you take a break.

We’re all so familiar with the term FOMO (i.e the fear of missing out) but I think we should consider the JOMO – the joy of missing out sometimes. There is nothing wrong with having a little bit more me time, or time to spend with your family and friends (and puppy in my case). Burning out is so common these days, you need to take the odd day/night to yourself. Switch on a rom-com, crack open a tub of Magnum ice-cream and enjoy some quiet time with Cooper (although don’t worry he didn’t actually get any of my Magnum ice-cream haha)! Continue Reading…

My First New York Fashion Week

September 13, 2017

Hi guys,

I’m just back from the BEST 5 days in New York at my first every New York Fashion Week. It was a dream come true for me: attending fashion shows, experiencing the backstage chaos and getting dressed up in whatever I wanted. I have attended other Fashion Weeks (London and Milan) but nothing will quite compare to New York for me – my favourite city! The street style, the atmosphere, the weather – everything was just out of this world.

My favourite shows of the week were: the Project Runway Finale with Jessica Alba, Heidi Klum and Zac Posen (how cool), Taoray Wang, Francesca Liberatone, TOME and John Paul Ataker (where I saw Taylor Hill and Karlie Kloss walk). Being backstage at TIBI was amazing as well, that show looked unreal!

It was a crazy busy few days, which I am recovering from now but I absolutely cannot wait to go back to NYFW and do it all over again another season. Being able to attend this time was a big milestone moment for me in my new career. It has made me so motivated and excited for what lies ahead.  Continue Reading…

Travel Skincare Saviours

September 5, 2017

Hi guys,

As you may know I have a pretty crazy month of travels this month. I was in Lisbon last week, New York for the weekend for Fashion week, London next weekend and Spain at the end of the month.

In 2017 in general I’ve been blessed with lots of exciting travel opportunities, you can read more about them here. The ONLY downside of all this amazing travelling is the toll it has taken on my skin. Everyone knows airplanes, sun and being out of your regular skincare routine does not do your skin any favours.

Up until this summer I’ve been so lucky with my skin, bar a touch of acne in my teenage years, my skin has always been pretty normal. However in the past few months I’ve found it to be extremely dry and flakey at times. I tried to rectify this with face masks and different moisturisers, which in turn made my skin much too oily. I couldn’t win! Continue Reading…
