Can we discuss the level of coolness of my new jacket? Let’s take a little moment to praise my favourite leather maker, Francis Leon’s new lust worthy pieces for heritage brand Barbour International! I’m teaming up with the jacket and coat specialist to bring you ‘A race fueled by style’, here is how it goes: We are challenging you all to a Six Days Trial, stop by Barbour International at Picadilly circus, or by participating House of Fraser stores and style up your favourite biker look in the photo booth! Then it’s simply the love of social media, shares and likes that gives you the chance to win the coolest pieces from Barbour’s current collection. I'll be waiting for your #BISDT inputs over at Barbour's site.

We are kicking off with an in-store event tomorrow at Barbour International in Picadilly Circus from 5-7pm. So come on down for drinks, goodie bags and a little meet and greet! See you tomorrow?

Well well well. Hey from Ibiza. The closing season was calling big time, so here we are. Stretching out some unrealistic dreams to the max, why does all good things have to come to an end....? Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened, they say. But, I am only human. Until next year, sunset paradise, unfortunately you never get the same moment twice.

PERNILLE CORYDON gold ring
PRADA shoes

Making the most of the last summer days in London with undiscovered rose gardens and seizing the beauty of our central Hyde Park. The pointy pumps get a rest whilst the streets still allows bare toes, these are the glorious in between days of bare legs and big coats. Ask any blogger and they’ll tell you every change of season is much appreciated, lucky me for living in the part of the world where I get to experience all four seasons. Look at me phasing the British weather. Because I’m happy.

‘’Keep your head heels and standards high’’


No need to ask me twice to create a story to illustrate the launch of Paco Rabanne’s beautiful, new One Million fragrance. I’ve been wearing the previous Lady Million since I can remember, but now the golden perfume that represents all things luxurious has been updated with the an intriguing ‘Eau My Gold’ fragrance. Can we take a moment to applaud the name?

While the perfume speaks loud, basking in it’s glamorous femininity, my version is a bit more subtle. My very own Golden Rule follows in the footsteps of nothing less than my beloved high heels. From the shoes I dreamt of as a child, the designer stilettos that I saved up to in my teens, on to the aesthetics that I eventually build a career around. Fellow shoe lovers will understand that those all important inches does not only help you walk tall, but it acts as a reminder on every step that the fighter in you can rise above any given situation. It both physically and mentally lifts you on to a higher level of live. That, if anything, is why I wear 5 inch and up heels even when I pop out to buy milk.

So if I managed to get awake some curiosity in you, click though and discover the golden lifestyle on Paco Rabanne’s 'Million Wall' where you’ll find images and inspirational quotes to live up to.

ZARA skirt
BALENCIAGA 'Padlock mini' bag
MONICA VINADER rings
JIMMY CHOO ‘Turner’ boots 

Following in the footprints of the ‘what-I-wors’ over London fashion week. For a casual Sunday, I got dressed in a deconstructed denim jacket by Eddy Anemian, winner of this year's H&M Design Award. This time last October I was phasing the collaboration with Minju Kim, the collection that sold out in a day, although it flew under the radar for most of us. But, this year, let’s be more organized and prepare to shop the collection in selected H&M stores 23.10.

Illustrated leather


CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTION 'So Kate' shoes

For fall, firm favorite McQ by Alexander McQueen has teamed up with Japanese manga artist Yoshiyasu Tamura for a collection of punchy, black and white, comic strip inspired pieces. The collaboration offers a whole series of all-over manga prints, but a marriage of a classic biker and illustrated bad-girl patches convinced me that there is still room for another leather jacket in my wardrobe. This one will for sure not be outplayed any time soon, come what may swanky new leathers. So, to not look too much like I’m about to ride off, the prettiest satin peplum on the market and, wait for it, the most perfect shoe man ever made; Let’s finally welcome the legendary ‘So Kate.’ My feet are crying bloody, but very happy tears.

Oh the melancholy


PRADA glasses
SAINT LAURENT bag

I'm suffering from a little something that could only be described as a post-wedding-depression. Last Saturday we celebrated my sisters beautiful wedding which could not have gone better! More on that later, but I have to admit the stress of running on a combined fashion week and Maid of Honor schedule has left me with a blank mind, although my head is filled with nothing but great memories. So, what now? I did not manage to talk myself into joining the Honeymoon, so instead I think a major blog catch up would be a good place to start.
