    So I just wanted to talk about a campaign I was recently introduced. The campaign called ‘I Can Never Be Too Much’ is for design house Georg Jensen and stars five strong females who have defied conventions and risen to the tops of their industries. A completely different approach to design brand advertising – it’s so revitalising to see a campaign video with a serious message as opposed pouts and poses.

    I think this Georg Jensen campaign is particularly significant  at this moment in time – with the current news such as Donald Trump’s presidential reign and the on-going fight for equal wages as well as many other problems us women face all over the world due to simply being stereotyped not as ‘able’ as men. Which is completely false obviously. susannebier_2

    Whilst researching into this campaign I also found out some interesting facts that you guys might want to take in:

    • Women are TOTALLY underrepresented in Parliament and Government – although 2016 is the record number for women in UK government, still only 29% are women.  Pretty poor for a ‘record number’. 
    • Women on average comprise about 30% of the workforce at the world’s largest tech companies, including Google, Microsoft, Twitter and Facebook.
    • Women are far more likely to be the victims of human trafficking – a HUGE 80% are girls. 
    • Female soldiers face rape and harassment – between one fifth and one half of female veterans were sexually harassed while on active duty, and women are more likely to leave with PTSD from rape than from actual fighting
    • Women overall are at a greater risk of rape and domestic violence – In fact, women between the ages of 15 and 44 are at a greater risk of experiencing rape or domestic violence than cancer, car accidents, war or malaria, according to the World Bank. And as much as 70% of women worldwide experience violence during their life.

    Lets RAISE these percentages of women in the workplace, reduce the percentages of rape, trafficking and abuse (altogether – it’s just as abominable for a man to go through that) and start making the world more aware that men and women are EQUAL and just as ABLE as each other. Let’s make more campaigns like Georg Jensen’s viral and show everyone these incredible women doing these ‘usually’ stereotyped ‘man-orientated’ jobs. These strong woman have showed that you can defy conventions and rise to the top of your game!

    As many of you may know – I have been an ‘Evelina’ friend for about 2 years now. The Evelina is the children’s hospital in St Thomas’ Hospital, Westminster who treat children with all kinds of health conditions. It’s the UK’s leading hospital for paediatric heart services. The hospital treats children of all ages; from babies in the womb through to young adulthood. I absolutely love visiting the children and have tried to visit as often as I can – many children have been at the Evelina undergoing treatment for a while and it makes such a difference to their day to have a new face play with them, make them smile and even just talk to them. img_7539 It’s so rewarding. I also participate in fundraising ideas for the hospital. One of which (The Evelina London Sample Sale) is taking place on Friday!

    The Evelina London sample sale consists of clothes donated by leading women’s fashion brand ‘Warehouse’. Every penny goes towards improving care for sick children at the Evelina London. Clothes are sample stock and sold at just £5 per item, meaning that shoppers can purchase a new winter wardrobe at a right bargain!

    I was lucky enough to take the first peek through the items and take some photos to show you guys! I’ve photographed some of my favourite bits and my gosh – there is a lot! From thick winter coats to glitzy party dresses, you will be getting the best deal in town whilst supporting a great cause. If you like what you see from my photographs, then pop down to the Evelina on Friday and get your hands on some of these gorgeous garments. And of course – there’s bundles more than what’s pictured on here..! Every item sold will go towards improving care for sick children.. from life saving research and the latest medical equipment, to the little things that help make a stay in hospital less scary for young patients.

    Friday 11th November, 10:30am – 2:30pm. Atrium, Evelina London Children’s Hospital, Westminster Bridge Road, London, SE1 7EH.  img_7586Coat and hat from the sample sale…love!img_7587img_7588img_7583Love this gold detail dress!img_7590img_7596img_7595img_7597img_7600img_7592img_7601…And I ADORE this drop-back, grey,chiffon maxi dress! Perfect for the christmas season.

    FACT: Winter is super great for chic, long coats and furry jackets but NOT great for all our cute tops and crops. 

    So I got sent this lace, camisole from Goldie and whilst I absolutely loved it – it had me thinking ‘how can I show this off without having to drown it in a huge coat?’. Then I thought – ‘Ugh, I wish my furry roll neck jumper was cropped so i could sling it over the top to keep warm but still see the cute top’ … bingggggggo. LETS CUT THE JUMPER! And here were our results.. cute right?

These are my genuine everyday products – I feel as though a lot of blogging sites cheat their readers by solely advertising products that they’ve been paid to. I would always want to be honest with you guys and hope these products can be a part of your life. ALSO, just a heads up – A lot of these products are discounted at the moment so grab them whilst you can!

    Another part of my beauty regime is my Beauty Box from ‘Look Fantastic’. Every month they send out a box of products worth £65. My last one was the ‘Jet Setter’ box and it’s so useful as you can find out what beauty products actually suit you without splashing out a load of cash on wasted items that end up not working with your skin type. It’s also very exciting when it comes in the post as you never know what’s going to be in the box!11140463-2144392532120434

    So here is part 2 of my Summer Dreams segment – with clothes from We Koko & jewels from Wild Hearts.

I’ve actually been stopped a few times in the street by people asking to touch it NO JOKE. IMG_3684IMG_3710IMG_3694IMG_3706IMG_3690IMG_3699IMG_3677IMG_3688IMG_3685IMG_3682Jacket – We Koko (Karizma), one piece – We Koko (Marian Eespaev), all jewellery – Wild Hearts

    Yesterday, I had the pleasure of being invited to view the Arcadia AW collections.  Arcadia run Topshop, Topman, Miss Selfridge, Dorothy Perkins, Wallis, to name a few. I was obviously particularly excited to sneak a preview of the Topshop collection and I was NOT disappointed – however, Miss Selfridge delivered an incredible collection and Dorothy Perkins particularly surprised me. The only bad news is that we have to wait for aaaaages until these incred designs hit the stores!

    TOPSHOPIMG_1784topshopIMG_1789IMG_1788Alot of the pieces from Topshop’s AW collection seems to theme around ‘pretty punk’. Grungy but still feminine and a LOT of pink. I absolutely love the sheer jumper with the bra underneath and all the writing over the pieces. I have always loved painted text on clothing.
    IMG_1799topshop1Every now and then, Topshop release a KILLER pair of leather trousers. GRAB them whilst they are there otherwise you will definitely regret it.
    topshop3I am absolutely loving the Carrie Bradshaw style shirt with the bralette over the top! Also another big trend that I’m seeing is the casual hoodie underneath a structured trench coat.
    IMG_1808IMG_1809Massive vintage vibes! RED LEATHER, high waisted trousers with 70’s style belts… oh my.
    IMG_1807IMG_1802IMG_1797So the dress above and below are definitely going to be in my wardrobe as soon as I can get my hands on them. I am absolutely in LOVE.
    IMG_1810IMG_1814Fur bomber jacket… NEXT LEVELS. 
    IMG_1813IMG_1815And finally, I’m going to end the Topshop collection with this period style dress. I have not stopped thinking about it since it first caught my eye. It is so elegant and the choker absolutely makes it.

    miss selfridgearcadia1Miss Selfridge has certainly delivered. With a clear theme of either floral or B&W chic the items are creative and drop dead gorrrrgeous. P.S. I NEED THE BEIGE SANDALS BELOW. 
    missselfridgemissselfridge2missselfridge1IMG_1749This coat absolutely screams 90’s/early 2000’s Miss Selfridge… I’m pretty certain they stocked this coat back then as it’s very familiar, maybe my mum had it or something… but I need it.
    missselfridge5Love the cropped element of this leopard print fur coat!
    IMG_1742Get in my wardrobe!!!!
    arcadiamissselfridge3IMG_1772These shoes are also my favourite from the day.. the shirts below I’m absolutely loving too. CHIC AF.

    dpIMG_1765Dorothy Perkins has COMPLETELY upped their game. With a whole new team of designers, I predict a whole new audience purchasing their clothes including myself. These Miu Miu inspired shoes stole the show from their collection and so did their other booties. IMG_1767IMG_1769Following Fendi’s lead – DP has also done a range of handbags with collectable/different style straps.



    The past week has been MEGA hence no blog post last week (I’m so sorry it will NEVER happen again!!). This post shall definitely make up for it!

    smudge4In my break during filming the other day I found this awesummm little vintage shop and ultimately found this JEM of a jacket. It might just be my favourite thing in my wardrobe at present. I paired it with a sheer leotard, a DIY choker and my new FURRY Stan Smith’s.  Links to items/similar options at the bottom!
    smudge6smudge5smudgesmudge9smudge11smudge8IMG_2037As this jacket is a one-of-a-kindddd kinda thang I’ve linked a similar badge style jacket that’s available to order now.
