Feeling Pinterest Perfect

I have gone and got myself a full head of highlights! Way back after my trip to Barcelona in 2014, I was pretty inspired by the hair colour of the Spanish girls. So of course, I had a go with a subtle version of the ombre trend. It was great, but after I let it grow out a new look was needed!

The balayage effect had taken hold and this was to be my new experiment. The result? I LOVE IT! Elena at Barron Salon, Muswell Hill has done a perfect job and I couldn't be happier.

Back from Malaga

A lot has happened in the past year and I know things will continue to change. My motto seems to be everything will work out in the end' and to be honest I think they're words to live by. Although the post relates to a trip from a month ago, I'm still posting this on a high. My holiday to Malaga with Jack was probably the best trip there so far! I've put together a little photo essay of my fave parts, it's been so good to be happily snapping away with my camera again. Jack and I managed to explore both Frigiliana and the city of Malaga - I couldn't believe how gorgeous these places were! All the architecture, cleanliness and beautiful mediterranean colours - I loved the Cathedral of Malaga in particular, although we didn't have time to go inside. Frigiliana was also enchanting, all the little streets and white washed houses! It's inspired me to maybe set up shop there one day...

Fresh Starts

It's been a while, I'm sorry. But I'm on my feet now and all ready to get going again. After a hectic start to the year I can now say I am officially living and loving London! 3 months in and I could not be happier; Highgate is such a beaut place and it's just really good to finally be here after such a long time planning and waiting. In other news I will sadly be moving on from Cath Kidston at the end of the month, but it was a good run. My next job will be based more on what I want and need to do in order to progress. Not gonna lie, I'm quite nervous and a bit scared about what will happen and whether I'll mess up and shit, but at the end of the day, I was offered the role for a reason so I just need to pull myself together I guess. I want to try and do more posts about the next chapter of my life here, it'll be good for me. You see due to personal circumstances my house was sold the other week and it was probably one of the most awful experiences I've ever gone through. In a way I was lucky enough not to have been there on the day of the move, but it was still heartbreaking talking to my family about it after and knowing that the place of my childhood now belongs to someone else. I just hope that the next family realise how wonderful that house is and will grow and enjoy life together within those walls. I left them a letter and hopefully they'll look after their new home as it looked after us. So it's a bit strange knowing that my flat is my official permanent residence. I wanted to move out and get on with the next bit of my life so here I am! I just pray I'll make mistakes and learn and make the most of this stage I'm at. It's scary, but I'm excited. To anyone out there thinking about taking the plunge and moving forward, do it. I promise it'll be the most exhilarating thing you do.

Museum Road

It is so hard to forget how incredibly beautiful the structure of Natural History Museum is when it's hit by the winter sun.

Autumn Layers

Well it's been a couple of months since my last post, but this summer has been a bit of a rollercoaster and if I'm being honest, I haven't had any inclination to write since I went to Rome. Also I've been working a lot and trying to get everything together so I can move to London in the New Year, which has been hard considering my parents are currently divorcing. It hurts, a hell of a lot more than I could ever imagine especially as to me, our family always seemed so close and tight knit, but I guess that wasn't the case. Luckily I have a huge support network from my close friends, so all I can do now is look forward to the future and get cracking with my plans for the year ahead.

I think in general though, this summer just gone was pretty good. Kicking it off we had the world cup, 2 months of pub crawls and praying Mexico to do well, which ended in tears when they lost to Holland (unfairly I might add). There was sunbathing and picnics on Primrose Hill with Jack, followed by our incredible trip to Rome. Then 3 weeks in Barcelona looking after 2 gorgeous little girls. And who was I to complain when I was running around on the beach nearly everyday?! Coming back home was a bit of a downer though, even if I did get a beaut tan, but I think since I've been home I'm just desperate to get back out in the sun and feel heat - maybe one day when I'm rich I'll get to do summer breaks all year round!

So here we are, settling into September at last. You can actually smell Autumn in the air now which is pretty sad, but it does mean layering up for my favourite season :) This year think big coats, big boots, pastels, pinks and blues, minimalistic greys and massive furs! Wonderful. I think Autumn/Winter is fashion's own season and allows us to go a bit crazy. Here are some of the looks I absolutely loved from the 2014 collections this year.

Calvin Klein

Mary Katrantzou
