I love a check (not quite as much as I love a stripe) but with all the gorgeous print popping up I thought I would share some of my favourite finds with you, and if you like them too, you can shop them right from here!

This one may blow the budget slightly but hey, who said we couldn’t window shop!?! Dress Matches

All this check does get me excited for winter, and at the rate we going here in London it wont be long until we start lighting those fires, cracking open the red wine and getting our check on, whether it’s a rug, a poncho, a scarf or a game of chess!

Have a happy weekend everyone.


Handbag essentials

I think I would feel like I’m doing myself no favours what so ever if I left the house without all these bad boys in my handbag for a day at work. Those hot days in the city can be brutal especially when traipsing in and out of the tube stations, you find yourself arriving at work feeling less than fresh.  Not only do you feel like you have run to work in your clothes and you could do with a second shower by 9am but your hair also looks like you haven’t washed it for 5 days. The sunglasses are there to help with that glare bright and early and save your eyes from the harsh UV rays.  These mirrored sunnies of course also look super hot! The Oribe dry texturising spray will put the volume back into your locks and ensure it is smelling fresh and clean again.  A spritz of your favourite scent is a MUST for feeling confident when chatting to your work colleagues and for after work social events. Help revive your skin with a healthy looking glow with my favourite bronzer which gives you the perfect amount of colour no matter what your skin tone, this Chanel bronzer is the best I have come across.  I find at the end of the day there is nothing better than stepping out the office and swapping your killer heels or closed shoes for a pair of comfortable flip flops to walk home in, having the feet free will instantaneously cool down your whole body.  And the scarf…if the unpredictable weather hits then turn to a neutral toned scarf, it is the perfect accessory to wrap around any outfit.  Especially for after work drinks. Scarves are also investment pieces and I believe buying a few good quality timeless print scarves can be used for decades to come (also a great gift).
