My Weekend.

This is a little late but a while back I mentioned how I attended the 'blogshop' London course in Shoreditch. Well now I am finally getting round to posting a few pictures. Granted I have about 1000 pictures from the weekend but understand nobody would take pleasure in looking at all of them *I haven't even got round to it yet.

   I was lucky enough to spend the weekend at my Aunties flat just outside Nottinghill so enjoyed spending a few days just taking in the London atmosphere. I visited the David Hockney exhibition which was really good, definitely recommend. We went to a late showing which involved a free glass of vodka and coke and also meant the exhibition was lovely and quiet. I went out for numerous meals to wonderful restaurants , which is one thing I love about spending time with my Auntie. I get to go to lots of lovely places, and as you can see she has the most wonderful cats (Heri + Sami). I also took a trip to the electric cinema on Portobello road which was absolutely amazing, we saw 'The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel' and went for diner in a lovely french restaurant after. I couldn't get my head around the whole sofas in a cinema thing - WITH footrests!!! It was like heaven.

There is lots more to say but I always feel like I am rambling and nobody wants to know ha. Anyway hope everyone had a lovely week - yay it's the weekend!!!

Thought I would do a little wanted list for COS at the moment. I can't help but check the new in section and just stare in awe at all the beautiful clothes. The clothes are so timeless and classic I feel I can justify everything just by saying I can wear it for years and years. Maybe on my next trip to London I will treat myself to a little something for Spring. They just seem to get it so right with the colours, shapes and design of the garments. Below are links to all of the items incase anyone takes a shine to anything.

Satsuki Shibuya

While browsing online & I found this lovely brand stocking various home furnishings. Satsuki is the creator and is an LA born and raised graphic designer. Her love for nature sure comes through in her designs and prints. I definitely recommend checking her out if you are looking for a gift for someone or anything 'home' for yourselves. She stocks a variety of things from aprons, coasters to cushion covers. A really lovely brand, the only downside is she is based in LA so the postage might be a bit pricey and the wait is up to 8 weeks (I would say it is definitely worth the wait though).

That moment when you come across something on the internet and you instantly feel the need to share what you have discovered with every single person you speak to that day. Well today, that happened. I stumbled upon this brand 'ANVE'. Taking inspiration from Berlin all the way to Tokyo the brand offers simple, unique and classic designs. Offering an accessories and home-ware range there is plenty to choose from. The fold up bags are what instantly caught my eye. Coming in a range of colours they really are beautiful. I would describe them as different but what I mean is something you won't see somebody else rocking as you walk down the street or walk into a bar. The prices range from about 99 euros up to 230 euros for some of the home accessories. The good news is they ship all over the world. Below I have included some images off the website of the items they sell! Everybody needs to check them out - now!!! This is the website ---->

Wednesday Wants

Just a few bits from Topshop's new in section. The first thing I do every morning, even before checking facebook (not twitter, twitter is always first) is check the Topshop new in. I love seeing the new and exciting styles they have. I don't think I would wear any of these garments together in an outfit apart from the jacket and bag which are pretty versatile but they all just stood out as something I would wear either with jeans or the dress just with a pair of sandals. I have included links for all of the items below. I always love this time of year when the floral designs start coming in and brightening up the wardrobes.

Jigsaw - SPRNG!

Today I bring to you this wonderful video from Jigsaw. The video titled, 'Spring Jinks with Jigsaw' was directed by Scott Trindle and styled by Victoria Young. Something to get you feeling summery on this bright spring morning. Jigsaw has a really lovely combination of summery pieces this season, definitely worth checking out!

This Weekend.

So this weekend I ventured to London for a weekend of blogging. Bri + Angela are two wonderful ladies very well known in the world of creative design. Bri a freelance graphic designer and Angela a photographer; together they make the teachers of 'blogshop'. They are based in LA but have done a fair bit of travelling with blogshop over the past year. I will do a proper post about my weekend along with examples of my creations another time - but am currently in desperate need of sleep. I would definitely recommend this weekend to anybody wanting to create a platform for their blogs or just to take their blog to the next level aesthetically. Hopefully they will come back to London soon. I only hope they do a level 2 blogshop!!

As usual Coast's Spring 11' collection consists of a beautiful combination of classic and simple pieces. A brand that seems unable to do wrong. Their garments are so easy to wear, sophisticated and great quality. The only downside is the cost, however they do a cracking sale at the end of the season.

Wish List

Loving these two shirts both from H&M in store now. Perfect for the spring summer months. In my opinion there is nothing better than a fresh white shirt with dark skinny jeans, always looks very smart! H&M have been a real favourite of mine as of late, they seem to be getting in alot more 'fashion forward' pieces at really good prices. That european, Scandinavian look is definitely my go to look, simple yet stylish.

Happy St. David's Day to all the fellow welshies out there!


OOTD - first attempt.

So I thought I would give this a go. I had a lovely camera for my birthday along with many lenses and a tripod so I have no excuse really. Obviously I am not great at this just yet but hopefully as time goes by I shall improve!

Anyway down to the more interesting bits; This is my fresh cold spring day outfit where the sun is shining so you want to show off some colour but it is still cold enough to wear a nice faux fur hat.


The top is brand new so not yet on the website but I am sure it will appear in the blouses section at some point. Bang on trend bringing out the print which was seen throughout fashion week just gone. And the hat was bought around christmas time but the brown one is still in stock. 

This sort of hat is perfect for the spring weather where it is still quite cold and you still want to look fashionable whilst staying warm.

Hope you enjoy.
