DAY AT HOME


BODEN JUMPER / VINTAGE SKIRT / DANIEL WELLINGTON WATCH

How is everyone doing this fine Thursday?
Much of my work-time is spent in my favourite spot in London: my home! There's nothing like spending your coffee-break with your trusty favourite brew of choice, although I must admit it sometimes takes a bit overhand when I'm running to the kitchen and back every hour. I convince myself I become faster at typing though - it's an investment for sure!


A few of my new and old favourites. I've had a lot of requests, especially on my instagram, regarding which lipstick I'm using - it's the MAC Kinda Sexy, and honestly, it's such an amazing everyday colour. Although research is saying, that we girls tend to wear more makeup than actually suits us, I'm afraid this one stays on my lips for now.

HOPE YOU'RE HAVING A LOVELY DAY - AND GUESS WHAT? WEEKEND AFTER TOMORROW!! MORE HOMETIME!!

RED FRAMES



MAX&CO coat ASOS t-shirt / LEE jeans ALDO shoes (similar here) REISS bag MICHAEL KORS sunnies

My desire to put on a proper Autumn coat has been as huge as my candy cravings lately. It just doesn't seem to get cold here in London, and although October's already well over (yay for it being my birthday soon guuhuys!!) - I felt quite overdressed in my Autumn coat, not to mention completely melting in the Underground like halloumi on an Aussie Christmas barbecue. There's always that crazy complex of dressing accordingly for the weather and then how to dress before going on the tube - it's like Antarctica and the Bahamas. Okay, so I might be exaggerating just a bit, but you get the contrast and I really yet have to find an outfit that works for them both!

HOPE YOU HAD A LOVELY DAY

COFFEE HOUR



ZARA SHIRT / ZARA JEANS / VINTAGE SHIRT / REISS ANKLE BOOTS / DANIEL WELLINGTON WATCH

Saturday love to everyone out there, hoping you're all feeling relaxed and excited about the weekend. If you've been following along on twitter, you might have heard that I've been struggling a bit after a small incident with a water spill at my favourite café. Now if it wasn't because they simply mastered the art of iced coffees, they probably wouldn't find me coming back anytime soon. I've been quite unlucky with my equipment lately, but if there's one thing that doesn't fail me, it's that morning cuppa. Moving on, I've been completely crazy about these black REISS ponyskin ankle boots ever since I've got them. To be quite honest, I consider myself a very practical girl, but somehow these have managed to hit a soft spot with me and convinced me otherwise. Still standing!

HOPE YOU HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEKEND

UPDATE ON DARREN



An update from the post I did on Darren, a homeless man with such a kind heart walking around East London with his dog Autumn creating these amazing one off copper pieces. I was so lucky to have him make me the copper bracelet above, together with lots of small copper flowers as decoration which belong to his signature creations. To catch up on the story from the beginning if you missed out, please have a look here.

First of all, thanks to everyone who shares an interest in this project - if we have any chance of changing the world, taking part in our local environment and seeing how we can make a difference is there is always a good step. All of your comments and support has made me realize how possible it is for us to speak the voice of difference and for it to actually manifest into change.

Since meeting Darren, I've been incredibly keen to start this project with him, making his amazing one-off's available to buy online and for him to slowly get on his feet again. After he made me this bracelet, I gave him my name and number for him to call me on his very dated Nokia phone which he couldn't remember the number to. I reckon he must have lost it the first time, but when I weeks after found him again, with the message of all your lovely responses and your interests in supporting him, it was incredible to see how touched and happy he was. Once again I gave him my number, this time on a used paper cup.

I haven't seen him since and I think the number has been lost, or most likely that he can't afford the credit to contact me. I'm on the search yet again, and next time I find him I will make sure to act quickly as I know he is just as keen for this to happen as I am to get involved.

Darren is just one of many, many homeless, who often end up sleeping on the street. I've been collecting clothes to give to another East London homeless, Isa, and I thought, if any of you have unused clothes, blankets etc. which you no longer have use of, and you know someone in your local area could put to good use with the cold months ahead, I know it would be greatly appreciated.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR ALL BEING SO LOVELY AND SUPPORTIVE

AFTER DARK



REISS SHIRT / PANTS / COAT / BAG / BOOTS

Although you'll know me to to be much of a home body on a Friday night, there's nothing like a night out in East London in good company wearing a great outfit.  I recently had an awesome time hanging out with REISS and some other great blogger girls at The Hoxton. I've been having an urge for 70's lately hence the Annie Hall going on, and although I naively said I wouldn't wear black, I couldn't help myself when I found this combination. See the entire feature from our night here and my outfit is available here.

Thanks for doing my hair for the night, Safaa from Sassoon!
