How to dress for work in Autumn

London
What better way to fight the autumnal blues than with a new workwear purchase? For most of us, myself included, the last thing we want to think about when getting ready for work in a crisp Fall morning is what to wear. So I partnered with Next to bring you a few styling ideas that can easily elevate your 9-to-5 ensemble. The selected pieces from the new collection tick all the right boxes: fit, quality and price.

When the nights draw in and the air gets chilly, what could be better than a large bowl of warming, full-flavoured soup? Settle in front of the fire, cosied-up on the sofa with one of my most-loved (and easy to cook, too) comfort food recipes - roasted tomato soup with mascarpone and basil.

Take it from me, ladies, dressing for a race event or polo match is easier than you think. I could fill an entire book with talk about equestrian dressing - there are so many pieces you could potentially wear. I've been inspired by my recent equestrian event with Joules at Burghley Horse Trials to write this piece and I'm hoping to give you some great starting styling tips. So read on, my lovelies!

Life is special – spend it well

Life is special – spend it well

Autumn is a time for change and a time for new beginnings, so what better than now to make a positive change in your life? After all, life is short so spend it well. It's time to start investing in yourself. Whether it’s investing in learning a new skill, developing yourself personally or professionally, refreshing your wardrobe or changing your style completely, you need to give to yourself first before you can give to others. Reconnect with what really matters, try new things and learn to say no if it doesn't make you feel extraordinary.

48 hours in Munich with BMW

Munich, Germany
A few weeks back I was invited by BMW on a very exciting press trip to Munich to celebrate the launch of their new BMW 4 Series Convertible. We arrived on a gloomy Tuesday morning and headed straight to our hotel, the uber-chic Flushing Meadows. One cup of coffee later, I was out exploring the beautiful city before the rain made an appearance.
Here’s what I bought from the sales

London
When my favourite high street and designer stores drop their prices, I'm always first in line - Topshop could-be-designer pieces and cult accessories for a fraction of the price? Yes please! From printed kimonos to pretty floral dresses and frayed denim jeans - the sales are literally bursting with lust-worthy pieces. And with up to 70% off selected pieces, there's really no excuse.
