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. 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. Coat and hat from the sample sale…love!Love this gold detail dress!…And I ADORE this drop-back, grey,chiffon maxi dress! Perfect for the christmas season.
With love from me and baby BB! My gorgeous little friend I met on my latest visit xTweet
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?
Tottttaaaallly crushing on this new brand I found on Instagram called iamkoko based in LA. They sent me two incredible pieces that they source from vintage stores and customise. One being this Guns ‘N’ Roses tee and the other being the most dreamiest Playboy t-shirt you’ve ever seen. I’m a sucker for some vintage Playboy and it certainly made me happy seeing that little surprise. Expect a blog post on that tee soooon! They also sent over some super cool chokers including this denim one. So dreaaammy. I based my outfit around the tee and accessorised with my incredible Duposh bag, my trusty oversized cardigan from glamorous and my knee highs! My Duposh bag is definitely one of my favourite accessories this season. Made in Amsterdam, they are blinged up to the max in the most classy and sophisticated way. Who wouldn’t want a bag with crystal FANGS? Vampire chic or what!
Okay – so here’s a post I thought I would NEVER do. Ball-gowns, prom dresses?
Now, I’m certainly not your glitz and glam, floor length, diamanté, demure kinda gal. I wore a basic, clean cut, emerald dress from Topshop Unique to my own prom. The thought of wearing something sparkly and encrusted with diamonds has always cringed me out and screamed ‘tacky’. However, I was forced to try something different last week.
I know what you’re thinking… why are we talking about proms in SEPTEMBER? Well, it was the last episode of my TV series and there was a prom being held at the college. As soon as I was told I had to get a prom dress I thought ‘Great, now’s the time to step out of my comfort zone and try something new!’. I mean – when would I ever get the chance to have a prom again? I wanted to have fun with it and see what it was like to be one of those girls who go dress shopping for the most outrageous dress and for it to be like a scene from ‘Say yes to the dress’. And as it was going to be on TV – you HAVE to go all out in order for it to be noticed.
Here’s 3 dresses I found on my search to become Prom Queen. Maybe you’re reading this just for fun or even to draw inspiration for your prom next year – it’s never too early to search for the perfect dress.
Last up we have iconic prom label – Jovani purchased from Dress 2 Party. With a hefty price tag, prom go-ers still fail to resist these dresses and I can see why. To add to this glamorous look I had the help of amazing make up artist Laura Louise and hair stylist Steph from ZXAAR HAIR. Click their names to be directed to their sites. You may want to book them for your prom next year 😉
Happy Saturday! After a long seven months of full-on filming, I have finally wrapped my series. Theres been laughs, tears and a hell of a lot of drama but it’s all over for now and my blog will finally be back in action. This means more outfit posts than ever!
In between the madness of wrapping up my series, I managed to enjoy just a little bit of fashion week! I was invited to the insane Julien Macdonald show to start off my shows and it did naaaat disappoint.
With Hailey Baldwin opening and closing the show it was set to be sassy from the word go. Here were some of my favourite looks.
I attended some amazing other shows but we would be here all day with the photos and comments on how much I loved everything from the zippers on the jackets to the lining of the shoes. I quite frankly appreciate everything when it comes to fashion week. Here are some of my favourite looks from my LFW wardrobe.

Have ya missed me? I thought I’d do a pretty casual post for you all, something you’re able to copy yourself and easily purchase from the high street. But still keeps you looking like the top dolllla, gold hermes birkin that you are and deserve to be of course.
Following from Monday’s post here is another look including shoes from the FLAWLESS Terry De Havilland. These gorgeous goldies are from his actual couture collection online. They are the heel form of my gold wedges. Honestly the detail on these shoes are insane. I’m also wearing a jumper from Fan Club Clothing – we all know how perfect this jumper is for me. My love affair with cowboys jus’ keeps growing.

Hey babes’, I’ve had to come to terms lately with the fact that I’m only going to be able to post when I’m able to. If that makes any sense at all – haha. Everything is crazy at the moment filming a brand new TV show for a pretty big channel and filming is everyday! By the time I grab my blogging camera these days, it’s always bloooody dark outside. Anyway, I’ve found two AMAZING new brands that I love. The first being Terry De Havilland. His footwear is remarkable and tick all three of the most important boxes – UNIQUE, MAJOR HIGH QUALITY AND ACTUALLY COMFORTABLE! I’m serious. If you keep up with my instagram, I shared a photo of my TDH gold wedges that I wore in Barcelona… I walked around the city in them all day with no hassle. This shoe collection is so beautiful and each pair are so insanely individual I had to have them all!! The shoes I’m wearing in this post is Terry De Havilland’s collection with ASOS (see – even asos know!). I also discovered a brand called Fan Club Clothing. They produce really cute slogan stuff but not ya basic slogans! It’s all pretty retro (which is perfect for moi) and american themed. Full details of this look is at the bottom of the post!Shades – VOW London, Tee – Fan Club Clothing, Skirt – Topshop, Shoes – Terry De Havilland X asos, Choker – Zara.Tweet
