LFW: Tom Ford Autumn/Winter 2014

Last night I was invited to the Tom Ford fashion show and just one word… “Addicted” (scroll down now and click play before you look through my favourite looks – this song was playing during the show and I haven’t been able to get it out of my head since). The show was a mixture(…)

Hotel Review: Conrad Algarve, Portugal

So a few weeks ago (wow, doesn’t time fly?) I was invited to go to Portugal for my boyfriend’s father’s 65th birthday! What an amazing weekend we had! Although, we probably would have a great time regardless where we were staying, the weekend was certainly made all the better by the stunning hotel. view of(…)

Hotel Review: Rome Cavalieri, Waldorf Astoria in Rome, Italy

I spent the last weekend in Rome for my best friend’s wedding (I will post about it in parts because it doesn’t deserve just the one post!)

NYFW: Marchesa Spring/Summer 2013 Collection

Marchesa designers Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig were inspired by India this season. Rich colors, elaborate beadwork, intricate embroidery, exposed midriffs and draped fabric exposing a single shoulder were seen on the runway of this beautiful collection. The designers managed to give a 1960s spin on the exotic clothes, which I’m sure will make this collection a red-carper(…)
