LONDON FASHION WEEK AW20 BRINGS EIGHTIES FLAIR

Firstly, I am losing my voice. Not only from non-stop chat, but from the deluge of rain that swamped London Fashion Week AW20. It wasn’t so much about fashion than it was Storm Dennis taking over the catwalks. Yes, we all got drenched. But that did not phase the fash pack, including me, from getting to see a preview of next season. In my first blog post containing my highlights, I’m sharing some of high points from the catwalk in…

LONDON FASHION WEEK WITH TIPPERARY CRYSTAL ACCESSORIES

I’m just back from London Fashion Week where you might have seen that I was shooting a collaboration with Tipperary Crystal Accessories. I am a such a fan of dressing up every day outfits with jewellery, bags and sunglasses to transform even the most basic things in my wardrobe. With my stylist hat on, I think investing in some key pieces to wear with your Autumn Winter finery is a good way to start building your new season style. One…

A Stay At Leman Locke London

London is like a second home to me, and whether it’s for work or play, I love staying in nice places. Look, who doesn’t? Last week I was invited to stay at the beautiful location that is Leman Locke. Now this is no ordinary hotel. Imagine you were away on business Monday to Friday for several months; the whole staying in a hotel thing could get a bit tedious. Having to eat hotel breakfast, eat in restaurants every night of…

A stay at the Royal Garden Hotel Kensington

A stay at the Royal Garden Hotel Kensington

I am in London often, but I never really get to stay in London if you know what I mean. I stay with friends and family which is always a treat but sometimes it’s nice to be in a hotel right in the heart of it. I recently stayed at the five star Royal Garden Hotel, Kensington which was a really wonderful experience. The hotel is located a five minute walk from the tube station at High Street Kensington making…

My make up tutorial that’s not really a tutorial

My make up tutorial that’s not really a tutorial

Getting your make up right is always a challenge. I love playing around with it; now this is not a make up  tutorial in any shape or form, more a look at how I did my face this week and the products I love to get the look.   I also like to leave my images unedited. I haven’t got perfect skin, but there’s no point in claiming I do. So I leave my skin to do it’s thing and…

An afternoon with Jeremy Hackett

An afternoon with Jeremy Hackett

Nothing beats a good chat with someone who knows how to dress. And not just themselves. I mean humans. Jeremy Hackett is a fascinating person. His iconic British brand, Hackett, is a pioneer in menswear across the world. In Ireland, its South Anne Street store in Dublin is a form of escapism. From a bustling street you step onto a pristinely tiled floor and you are whisked away to a land full of exquisite tailoring and contemporary menswear. “I would…

Road test with Rockport.

Road test with Rockport.

I’m on such a shoe binge at the moment and on a recent trip to London I popped into the Rockport press day. To say that next season’s collection is a fusion of chic styles and comfort is an understatement. The selection of shoes, boots and sandals is just huge and it’s so refreshing to see a brand really embrace what we busy ladies need in a shoe, as well as adding splashes of much needed colour! Now, before I…
