Are we still allowed to say Happy New Year? Whatevr. I’m saying it.

January for me has been momentous in many ways. Hence the lack of blog. I’m also a year older so celebrations have been keeping me busy. One celebration I’m actually blogging about now. My oldest and bestest friend Holly treated me a belated birthday treat, taking me for cream tea at ‘Forest’ above Selfridges and then to the HAIR exhibition at Somerset House. IMG_0216

I was in HEAVEN. The HAIR exhibition featured a mock up Chanel runway, endless issues of Vogue and deep insight into fashion shows over the years.

…We then had a very chic and relaxing stay at the K-West hotel & spa in Shepherds Bush. The K-West used to be a recording studio once upon a time and keeps to it’s ‘funky’ roots with a sassy design and modern features. Not to mention we had the best night sleep we’ve had in a while…

1. Bathroom at K West

We were given the huge Embassy suite for our stay (bed as big as your goals) – but my favourite part was the spa. The spa at the K-West actually has a SNOW paradise. So cool (literally).  It’s the only place in the UK to cater for the ‘hot/cold therapy’ alternating between steam and ice environments.

1. Snow Paradise - K Spa

How brill is that?! Admittedly I only lasted a minute in the snow room as I’m a huge wimp but trés exhilarating for sureThe other spa features included a huge hydrotherapy pool, sauna, steam room, and chill out cabins. Whata dream.

My outfit for the evening festivities! (top – Zara, Jeans – Versus Versace)

 It’s safe to say we were kept thoroughly entertained at the K-West Hotel with a great room, an amazing spa, a lively bar and a bangin’ eggs Benedict for breakfast.

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.Processed with VSCOcam with g3 preset

This dress is from Cinderella’s Prom in my hometown of Brighton. This is PURE prom in my opinion but I loved the Chloe vibes it had going on.  Had a real ethereal feel to it and fitted like a glove.

The next dress is actually from respected Indian designer Rocky Star. Obviously on the more expensive side – Beyonce, and the Pussycat Dolls to name a few has worn Rocky Star pieces. I can’t imagine many people have worn these dresses to proms – more like red carpets.

I adore the deep split to this dress and encrusted waistline. Definitely a more high fashion option. 

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.collageimg_5394

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.

Took my favourite new tee on a little outing to the city the other day. This T-Shirt so easy to just throw on over leggings paired with trainers but also looks like you made some effort with the hard-to-miss sequin asssss! I’m in love with it. I also spiced up this outfit with some hair studs and a choker made from recycled ribbon.

I’m so in love with my new Saint Laurent bandana. So today, I teamed it with my suede/leather cropped biker, Hook LDN sunnies and hand-me-down cowboy booties. The jeans are Maje and I’ve linked the top I’m wearing at the bottom.

Hey guys, so as most of you know – i’m currently in Los Angeles soaking up the sun, seeing friends and attending some very exciting meetings etc. And of COURSE blogging for you gorgeous followers. This blog post particularly excites me as i’m wearing my new favourite jacket from one of my fave designers Alice McCall. I’m completely obsessed with it. I’m ALSO wearing a shirt from one of my best pal’s upcoming t-shirt brand AndieXJane. The brand hasn’t been released yet but i’m sure people are going to love it – it has a James Perse vibe, chic and comfy basics. You can’t go wrong with a plain tee that fits like you came outta the womb wearing it.
