I have been an avid subscriber to Glossybox for a while now. I love that it feels like Christmas every month when you receive that beautiful little box full of treats and surprises. I was upset when I received my January box and alas, this yummy smelling Jason lip balm was broken. I could not sample it....or attempt to eat it, as it smells a lot like after eights. Yum.
I left my review on the website, explaining that I loved the scent however it was broken so I could not use it. I thought nothing of it and a couple of weeks later I receive some mail and much to my surprise it was indeed a new working lip balm from the Glossybox team. I was thrilled and have been using it everyday since. It is now my go to lip balm. Sorry Carmex. My lips feel hydrated and delicious and I would honestly recommend this product to everyone.
I guess I'm trying to say thank you Glossybox.  

On my nails is Nail inc Porchester Square.

New York Fashion Week is almost over, which means it's almost time for London! I am very excited to be able to go to the Felder Felder show this coming Friday. It will be a treat to be watching the show rather than working it! Normally I am backstage throwing clothes on models, pinning clothes to models and squeezing shoes on models! So I am excited to be able to experience it from a seat!
Felder Felder have been one of my favourite designers for a while now, they are still fresh to the fashion world but I believe there is more and more demand to get a seat at their show, so I feel very lucky. They started their label in 2006 after graduating from Central St Martins and already have many devoted fans.
I love how they bring a dark rocky vibe into their collections but still keeping the shapes and styles feminine. I love the clash of soft against hard, the chiffon printed fabrics and the gorgeous collection of jackets they always seem to have!
If you are not making it to the show, do not fear as this year it will be streamed live through the London Fashion Week website. 2pm. Friday 15th February.
If you are yet to gaze your eyes among their collections, please do, I am sure you will not regret.

All others are my own.

I cannot begin to explain how amazing it was to get to meet the lady herself, let alone work personally with her on her first show in 30 years. Zandra Rhodes was pretty much the reason why I decided to go into fashion when I little. It was most definitely a once in a lifetime experience.
This show was a retrospective of her previous collections and it was an honour to be able to take part in a show like this. Zandra Rhodes herself even gave me a lesson on her secrets of ironing, she advised me to spit on the iron and if it sizzled, it was hot enough to start ironing. True story. However, I could not bring myself to do this with vintage Rhodes!
The show was packed, the queue was out the door, the clothes were beautiful and the shoes were insane.
Everything you would want from Paris.
