So here is what I have been loving lately… These are a few of my favourite things!
First of all, I don’t want to sound like I am showing off, but I am so excited I own a Cartier Love ring! I love this ring and I have been swooning over it for a while now. In fact, I kept going into the shop to visit it, not to buy, just to visit it! I am incredibly lucky my boyfriend bought it for me recently as a birthday gift! I have been wearing it every day, either alone or layered up with other jewellery! I love it and I know I will have it forever!
I have been a fan of Emma Block’s beautiful illustrations for a few years now. When I saw she had a give away on her blog to win prints, I entered but I never thought I would be lucky enough to win… but I did!! I am so super happy with them, they are the most beautiful prints and I am so happy to have won them! Check out Emma’s blog and Etsy shop, both are a treat for the eyes!
I used to think Thomas Sabo was all about charms and cherries, but over the last few seasons, the brand has really moved on and become really quite cool!
I went to their press day recently and I loved their whole AW14 collection, I can’t wait for it to launch later this year! In the mean time, I have this amazing little spike pendant, which I think is really subtle with a little edge. When I am not sure what jewellery to wear, I find myself putting this on. It looks cool alone as a delicate, yet tough necklace. It also looks really cool layered up with other pendants too.
I love watches. They look great, I love the tradition and craftsmanship behind them too. I think they look great and say a lot about a persons style. My boyfriend wears a beautiful Omega watch (just like Daniel Craig in James Bond) and I wear a beautiful Rotary Watch. I love this watch, it is really cool, really beautiful and I get so many compliments on it!
I am a yogurt-oholic these days, I can’t get enough of it. If you get a good one, it is just as satisfying as ice cream but without the guilt! I have recently been hooked on The Collective Dairy’s amazing yogurts and yogurt drinks. These are the most luxe and creamy treats ever; Luscious Lemon yogurts, Creme Brûlée Yogurt, they are so creamy and so tasty! They have just launched their new Yogurt drinks and they are also delicious, somewhere between a smoothie and a yogurt drink and totally tasty and healthy. A perfect mid-morning or mid-afternoon treat! Love!
Can you describe your first ever pair of Dr Martens? Of course you can! We all can! Mine were black Mary Janes and I thought they were awesome! That’s the thing about Docs, we all own them or have owned them and we all love them. Have you ever heard anyone complain Docs are ugly? Or poor quality? No, nor me. Docs are great and they really are a great British brand. I have recently got an amazing pair of new Docs from Cloggs Footwear which I absolutely adore. They are copper coloured shoes, I think they look really cool and really slick! They are comfortable, practical and really cool! I love the colour and finish of them too!
Satchels are still a huge trend, but I have a thing for what I describe as ‘a classic satchel with a twist’. I love my Original Satchel Store leather tote bag which has satchel style detailing. It is bigger than a satchel, and it is also a tote bag, but the detailing on it, gives a nod to the satchel trend. I’m wearing them here with my Charlotte Olympia Taurus shoes… which I also love!
Who doesn’t look snooping around other people’s homes? I know I do and Todd Selby’s new book, Fashionable Selby gives you an insight into some of the worlds most fashionable and fabulous homes and studios! This is probably my favourite coffee table book ever! Highly recommended, every page is a new source of fashion and life inspiration, I love this book!
