Style Update: Repurposing a coat as a dress

posted on: Sunday, 23 July 2017

It seems, these days, I'm only drawn to items of clothing that can function as a 2 for 1 sort of scenario. Take this coat, as an example. Yes, that's a coat. Only when I saw it on the model online, I immediately saw the potential of this coat to be the perfect dress. Don't get me wrong, it was still going to serve as a coat, and perfect for layering, come pre-fall. But, I wanted to give it a purpose now. And so, a dress was born.

Lumity: The anti-aging skin fuel

posted on: Saturday, 22 July 2017

At the age of 37, I will just go ahead and say that I'm pretty much willing to try absolutely anything when it comes to the game of anti-ageing. It's not that I don't appreciate and value getting older and wiser (I hope), but I also really want to make sure I'm looking after myself in the best way I possibly can. Lumity anti-ageing supplement has been on my radar for a while now. I've seen it on friends' bathroom shelves, read about it in magazines and heard many a woman speak about it over brunch. However, I'm rubbish at remembering to take pills, so I didn't think it was something I would ever get into. Never say never. 

Now, I've always heard that the most important part of your beauty regime is actually the fuel you are putting into your body. My grandmother always said our bodies were like cars, we need to fuel ourselves with premium gasoline to see the best results. She'd always joke that if you put a less than magnificent fuel in the engine, you'd get a less than stellar result in the way the machine is run. Lumity is the premium gasoline, in this instance. It's an investment in allowing your body to run at it's best. How, you ask? Well....

Style Update: A pinstriped superhero cape

This outfit won't be for everyone. I'm just coming out and saying that now. When my best friend was shooting the picture he said, "I love this... it's the most editorial look you've done yet." Danger, Will Robinson. I do think sometimes people say "editorial" in the place of "risk taker" when it comes to sartorial choices. But that's neither here nor there.

Helping Henry Holland bring about change with BRITA

posted on: Friday, 21 July 2017

Here's a fact I'm pretty sure will immediately blow your mind: 7.7 billion single-use plastic water bottles are chucked into the sea and into landfills every single year. And here's my own admission. I know I'm part of the problem. I have probably used a plastic water bottle at least every other day for the past three years, and when I heard this fact I felt absolutely sick to my stomach. I had to keep my stomach in check however, as I was hearing it from the mouth of an absolute fashion babe- Henry Holland of House of Holland. I sat down with Henry last month to talk about his latest collaboration and he hit me with this number to kick things off in our conversation. He wasn't saying it to scare me, he was sharing it to kick my butt into action. Did you know that it's currently estimated that there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish by the time we reach year 2050? Yeah, that was the second tough reality pill I had to swallow. But, that's just a prediction if we don't make an effort for change. And this is where you come in.
