Chunky trainers – the best new buys

Chunky trainers – the best new buys

Fashion  |  Ashford

Up until recently, it was all about the streamlined elegance of Adidas’ Stan Smith but, skip to 2018 the chunky trainers trend is sweeping through the fashion pack. It all started with Balenciaga’s Triple S – a big hit for the brand and one of the most popular luxury sneakers of the last year.

Favourite London coffee spots you’ll want to Instagram

Favourite London coffee spots you’ll want to Instagram

Lifestyle  |  London
I have scoured the streets of the city to bring you the best London coffee spots you'll want to Instagram right now. Don't get me wrong - a perfectly crafted cappuccino is a must, but equally as important, at least to me, is the aesthetic. It's downright essential if you spend a lot of time in a place, right? I've made my way through a majority of London's coffee spots, so I'm sharing my favourite 7 that not only offer an amazing selection of coffees, food, and pastries but are also beautifully decorated. That's an Instagram win-win.

A complete guide to buying jewellery

A complete guide to buying jewellery

Fashion  |  London
With the festive season fast approaching, now is the perfect time to buy something significant for that special person in your life. I think Astley Clarke's jewellery is hard to beat when it comes to their extensive selection of products, across all prices and finishes. However, for something that is more purse-friendly I love Asos and & Other Stories for beautiful, trend-led pieces that will last more than just one season. This post was inspired by the recent launch of Astley Clarke's Icon Nova collection - which I had the pleasure to wear during this shoot. The new 14kt rose gold jewellery collection is incredibly elegant and precious (as you'd expect) and inspired by astral explosions frozen in time.

My Fall wardrobe purchases

My Fall wardrobe purchases

Fashion  |  London
Dark mornings and cold nights are upon us - whether we like it or not, so it's time to start planning our Fall wardrobe. Now, before you go on a shopping frenzy, I suggest going through your existing wardrobe and sell (or even better donate to a charity) anything that doesn't fit you any longer or that hasn't been worn in the past year. I, personally give a lot away or sell them on Depop. Then go online and see what styles and trends are in this season. I prefer to invest in classic, timeless pieces that will save me time and money in the long run - like a well-fitted coat, a pair of boots or a dress that I could wear for various occasions.

Oh, we’re having a baby…
I've had my 12-week scan, everyone knows our wonderful news, and now the reality is sinking in. We're going to have a baby!  The first few months of pregnancy is a wonderful period. My baby is growing faster now than at any other time and my morning sickness and fatigue are now a thing of the past. Our gender reveal party is getting closer and my to-do list is getting longer.  I can't even explain in words what I felt on the morning of the 2nd of June when I found out that I'm pregnant. I was bursting with excitement, but there was also an overwhelming feeling of not knowing what to do first or where to start. I also shed a few tears when I shared the exciting news with my husband.
