Well, hasn't this been a whirlwind of a year!? I can't quite believe it's September already, and had the sudden guilty feeling that I only blogged once last week. Apologies to anyone who is used to more content (hello, Mum) but I've got quite a bit on at the moment, and rarely share whats going on in my little world so I thought I would!
The summer had distinct ups and downs and after feeling under the weather (a combination of being pretty unwell and run down at points and then the other extreme; eating and drinking too much) I have decided to undergo a detox for 12 days. I'm 7 days in and (as you'll know if you follow me on Twitter) I'm pretty staggered at the result. I'm the most cynical person when it comes to dieting, in my book if you eat less and drink less you will ultimately weigh less - and vice versa. This Chris James Cleanse is insane, I've lost 6 inches and 7 pounds so far. Easy it isn't (it's essentially vegan and gluten free) but so worth it. Really changed the way I think about food, although I'd be lying if I said I wasn't fantasising over the pizza I'm going in inhale at the end of it. However, it feels fantastic to be able to shop for the autumn with confidence.
my favourite AW14 picks from Atterley Road
Ben and I are moving house this weekend. It's been a long-old process, we have redeveloped a former art gallery in Clapham into a flat. Turns out it takes a lot of work (!!!) but our new home is 99% ready and we cannot wait to get in. Best of all it has a super huge living space which I can blog to my heart's content in, which is good news as I have a couple of exciting collaborations coming up over the next couple of months (including a great competition with one of my favourite brands). So you'll see a lot more home related pins on Pinterest here, and I'm considering branching out and doing some posts around it too as we're putting a lot into decorating our home and the refurbishment itself might be interesting for some of you...
my favourite AW14 picks from Topshop
Work wise Pitch and Post is now up and running and in full swing, our campaign for Monica Vinader went live and we're now planning our next round of collabs which is extremely exciting. On top of that, we've got a big family wedding (which I will be Instagramming the sh*t out of as I know it's going to be beautiful - got my dress and my shoes sorted) and then there is London Fashion Week. I'm not the biggest fan of sitting ring side at the shows, it's all a bit of a farce and I'm never going to be one of those street style girls, but I do love the evening events and catching up with friends who are visiting over the weekend.
my favourite AW14 picks from Net A Porter
I hope you all have a great September and enjoy the start of autumn. For me it's my time for dressing, I love the layers and the thicker fabrics, above is my edit of favourite autumn buys from my favourite places at the moment: Atterley Road (this lace top and this jumpsuit/dress should be enough to convince you), Topshop (I mean these are just, wow) and Net A Porter - and a special mention to Club Monaco (Ralph Lauren's edgier monochrome sister, just opened up close to me on the Kings Road - this is a must have).
