Two parts wardrobe winner, one part Fifty Shades of Grey – the cage bra is just too cool to cover up. Who knew an extra piece of elastic (or two, or three…) would move the humble bra into a full fashion frenzy?
Paired with the softest of jersey tops, it’s off duty with a very desirable twist. It may still be cold outside but your lingerie doesn’t have to be…

Now that the social display of outblinging everyone during Christmas and New Year’s is over, I’m trading in my statement necklaces and cocktail rings for something more refined and discreet. Worn back with oversized sweatshirts, maxi mohair cardigans and the softest of soft jersey tshirts, my January bling will be minimalist but pack a maximalist punch.
When it comes to jewellery, there are only three types I like to wear – fine chain necklaces, midi rings and ear cuffs. Necklaces, I like to wear up to three at a time, and am always on the lookout for unique pendants, designed to invite you in and take a closer look. Midi rings, I like them pared back but with plenty of attitude! And my favourite type of jewellery of all, the ear cuff, small in stature but deliver such a bold statement – for me, its for the right ear only.
Uber-urban High Street brand Warehouse held their SS15 Press Day this month at the iconic Victoria House in Holborn, which provided the perfect backdrop to showcase their upcoming Spring/Summer collection and where Work, Play, Style and Relationships – the premise behind Warehouse’s Tales of the City philosophy, remained as the underlying theme throughout.
Guests were treated to bespoke goody bags where you were encouraged to pick up “free stuff” off the shelves as you wandered in and out of the curated rooms, DIY printed tshirts with YRStore and a sneak peek at the most exciting Warehouse collection to date!
Suede and leather, 70s fringing, Scandi styling all represented, as did palm prints, leaf motifs and the hero of the show – a real leather Western jacket dipped in pale pink and cream tones. Sat alongside the plywood fixings, the whole event was one concise, well thought out and expertly curated preview. Onwards to Spring Summer 2015!

This week, I made the switch to Samsung from Apple after winning Samsung’s latest Galaxy S5 phone and Note Pro 12.2 tablet in an online giveaway. Working in digital marketing, I’ve organised many competitions in my career. From sending a free bouquet of flowers for every 100th online customer to devising a fun, interactive way to enter to win a trip to Dubai, there’s definitely always a winner, but never had I thought it could be me!
I’m an Apple girl through and through – iMac at work, MacBook at home, iPod at the gym – and up until earlier this week, iPhone everywhere! While I’m sad to say adieu to my much-loved iPhone and Vans iPhone case, I realise it’s time to move on.
With the impending headache of me moving my life to Android now, there is a silver lining – with new tech comes new tech accessories!

October kicks off with Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and to help raise awareness and funds for the Breakthrough Breast Cancer charity, designers and high street favourites alike have created limited edition pink products for sale, proceeds of which go towards helping aid cancer research and patient care. Breast cancer is the most common cancer in the UK, with around 50,000 women and around 400 men diagnosed each year. This month, fashion favourites such as Stella & Dot, Stella McCartney, GHD, Warehouse and plenty more give you the chance to help and support this very worthwhile cause. Get a sneak peek at what’s in store this month…
