size? reebok classic world wide exclusive purple oasis pack release information

british seaside inspired brand shore projects follow up on their hugely successful first release of their innovative interchangeable straps, with the polka dot collection for summer 2014.

with simplistic features and modern day quality materials, the styles are effortless. shore projects have been one to watch for me since the brands debut and as soon as i saw the polka dot preview i was smitten!

shore projects watches polka dot summer collection straps accessories british designshore projects watches are designed for everyday wear, the timeless pieces have an interchangeable strap mechanism, to allow you to mix and match colour palettes and now patterns until your hearts content. i love this feature, as it allows your watch to feel even more unique to yourself. 

i've been wearing my portland everyday since i received it, before i was never really a watch wearer - but i find to be such a beautiful accessory and i am always complimented and asked about it.

last week i received a bumper parcel from the shore projects team, containing the complete polka dot collection. i was absolutely over the moon with the care parcel and so thankful for to the team for their continued generosity.

the new look leather polka straps are exceptional quality and with a price point of £20, completely affordable.

pretty in patta pt.2 - SS'14 SSS women's editorial



patta summer collection womens lookbook

creative directors ace dia and voilette esmeraida have shot part II of their women's patta editorial featuring some iconic garments from the brands latest spring/summer collection, which is available online now - the story follows on from the last editorial the pair worked on, which can be seen here. the editorial follows on from the 'girls in streetwear' concept which we are seeing more and more of, the shots capture the feminine edge to the style.

the shots look fresh faced, which is lovely as we head into the warmer months. the girls style the product wonderfully - giving a fresh look to the pieces, and springing to mind my own styling ideas for the collection. i love how everything is kept super feminine, with a bit of tomboy attitude. key pieces which i've had my eye on for a while are the lilac crew neck, along with the half stripe tee - which is sadly sold out now!

check out violette's and ace's instagram account for future work, along with the official patta account.

your tea : 14 day detox!

yourtea 14 day detox review - detox, healthy eating, cleanse, antioxidant

a few weeks ago, the team over at yourtea.com sent me over a 14 day detox to try out. tiny tea uses a heap of chinese medicine herbs, based upon ancient medicinal purposes to ease bloating, aid digestion and give you a boost of energy!

i suffer with exhaustion, anxiety and generally feeling a bit flat through the working week - so i jumped at the chance of being able to test the tea out! through the day i am a water drinker, with the odd cup of yorkshire tea - i love green tea, but find when drinking it to detox it can fall bland on your palette.

i drank 3 cups of the tea a day, over the 14 day period and thoroughly enjoyed it. it tasted lovely, now i've finished the 14 day pack i'm quite sad - other teas just do not taste the same! 

i did feel a difference in my energy levels and how i felt in myself, gone was the sluggish feeling of a monday morning - and it really did feel like it was helping my body to work! i love detox programmes and cleansing, but there is always the worry of it upsetting your body too much. i found yourtea.com's tiny tea to be gentle on my tummy, not using any shock chemicals to jump start it! come payday i'll be purchasing another pack, as i just cant do without!

check out the brands webstore here, along with their instagram which showcases some wonderful feedback!

outfit of the day: grey friday


outfit of the day asics ronnie fieg kith moxham otto shore projects daily watches portland stussy urban outfitters dress lookbook

i’ve been embracing the summer sales this week, because who doesn’t love picking up something you’ve had your eye on for FOREVER for 70% off?





I managed to pick up the urban outfitters x stussy football jersey dress for £30! i went for a large, so I could keep it oversized. the fit is perfect, the length just comes above my knee – I’m 5’’7 so sometimes struggle with dresses coming up slightly short and the quality is really lovely.

i’ve worn it twice this week (can’t keep myself away from it) and today decided to style it up with lots of grey accessories! i decided to go for my asics x Ronnie fieg gel lyte iii ‘flamingos’, my beloved shore projects portland with the grey strap and my moxham otto.

this dress is honestly so easy to wear, I hope stussy release more in the summer months!

house of vans london

house of vans london press release first look preview london waterloo station

opening on august 9th, inside one of londons most iconic spaces, is the house of vans. champions of creativity, individuality and community, the event space follows in the waffle footsteps of house of vans brooklyn. Yet the british take on the event takes a new route of its own, with a incredible 3000sqm venue which provides a space like no other – in infamous old vic tunnels!

the amazing permanent venue will be a home for music, creativity and of course skating. It will double as a music space, artist lab, cafĂ© and cinema – and is open to all as a home for individuality and completely free.

vans have opened up the venue to exhibit artistic talent from across the globe, with the opportunity for artists in residence to hold workshops for locals along with visitors of the great city! constructed of 5 incredible tunnels, the space promises to be a hive of activity – certainly somewhere to go to feel inspired to create something amazing.

intern essentials - land that summer placement!

intern essentials how to help post information post


after my internship working at a number a names* for 4 months as a press and showroom intern in London, i thought i would try write up a post with some (i hope) tips and tricks of how to hopefully get yourself that dream internship and get the most out of it you possibly can! so, here we go!...'intern essentials'.... 

so how do you get yourself that internship?

first step - apply. basically, the trick is not to give up. find brands, companies,  studios, stores you want to work for, look in their vacancies section and go through and search for anyones email you feel is relavent and drop them a mail, explaining that your interested in any internships they may have, or have in the future. don't be afraid to email someone, because really what is the worst they can say? no? which really isn't the worst thing is it! and at the end of the day, if you don't ask you don't get anywhere but be polite, don't be too pushy and remember although you may love that brand more than anything you are there to do a job, be focused and represent that brand professionally at all times. so, talk about what you have been doing, briefly what you want to learn and some key skills and interests.

with the big companies and fashion houses 7 times out of 10 you may not hear anything back, or a 'no' email but don't let yourself get down about it. busy people don't always have time for no, or no thank you emails. the first internship i had i sent out about 15 emails a day for 3 weeks, it's hard graft and constant but just turn into a machine with it and you will get somewhere in the end. it pays to be organised, maybe list who you have contacted, then you can always send a follow up email but remember don't be too pushy! confidence and drive is good but there sometimes is a fine line, be professional.

alife for puma - summer capsule


streetwear giants alife have joined with puma for a summer 2014 capsule collection, in spirit of the world cup.

the three piece capsule features a special edition pair of evospeed 1.3 football boots, matching boot bag and a complimenting football jersey. the collection releases alongside other collaborations with bape, colette and kith for the puma brand, in celebration of the summer of football. a repeat alife pattern keeps things cohesive with red and blue accents though-out. the capsule collection features the simplistic and bold alife edge with the high performance sports element represented by puma perfectly.

i love the collection, i'm really feeling brands mixing in football jerseys to their releases at the moment! i think an oversize jersey matched with a skirt or joggers is the perfect casual summer outfit, and the ideal way to wear your teams colours and represent your favourite brand at the same time!

the bundle is available online now at alife, priced at $340.
