Baby's Got a Brand New Bag

Kate Bosworth

Emma Watson

Emma Hill and her team have given us all a brand new Mulberry bag to lust after. They describe the Carter as a ‘stand-out day-to-evening bag.’ It comes in a choice of three delicious finishes: super-soft suede, tactile croc nappa and the intricate snake-embossed printed leather.

Carter has been spotted on the arm of a few celebrity fans, including Kirsten Dunst, Kate Bosworth, Lily Donaldson and Emma Watson.

It looks like a really versatile bag – it would be a fab for work and play. I want! I want!

Bic ‘Just Live Your Summer’ Party – Wednesday 20th July

Bic’s summer party provided welcome relief from the horrific weather in London! An oasis of colour and fun in Covent Garden, there were vibrant cocktails, those nibbly Garra Rufa fish pedicures, Zumba trials and a colour analysis corner.

I passed on Zumba (too high heels, more interested in cocktails and chatting!) and the nibbly fish (I’m super ticklish and didn’t want to flood the venue by kicking water everywhere) but both were fun to watch.

My favourite bit of the evening was the Colour Me Beautiful consultation with the lovely Angi Jones. Angi held lots of different coloured swatches to see what suited. Some were not surprises (I already love wearing electric blue, for example) but I’ll definitely be trying to wear more chocolate and green! If you want to have a colour analysis with Angi, it costs £125 and you get a wallet of swatches to take away with you – it’s a worthy investment in style! You can book an appointment with her through her website:

On another note, I shaved my legs with the Soleil Bella shaver this morning and my pins have never felt smoother – let’s just hope this weather improves so we can get them out more!

Sophy Robson Nails

LOVE Sophy's site! Nail inspiration ahoy!

Forever 21 Comes to London

I am super excited about the UK launch of American fast-fashion shop Forever 21.

My friends Sarah, Laurel and I went to the launch last night which was held at the Old Sorting Office on New Oxford Street. The massive venue was styled to look like a Californian funfair, complete with a fast food stand, beers, cocktails and roller skaters. The brand’s new face, Bip Ling DJ-ed and the catwalk show was actually a series of amazingly futuristic holograms. Beam me up Scottie, I’ll be the first one in this shop (it opens for business July 27th).

A Very Seductive Showcase

On Tuesday 19th June, Bip Ling DJ-ed at an underwear showcase by Lingerie Français, the association of premium French lingerie.

The event for press and media (attended by yours truly) was held at the Swarovski Lounge and focused on the haute couture corsetry of Simone Pérèle (my favourite), the classic sensuality of Lise Charmel, the specialised fit of Empreinte and the modern and audacious Princess Tam Tam.

Celebrities in attendance included Charlotte and BB from Dirty Sexy Things – the fab new TV modelling show.

Suzi Kemp

I saw Suzi Kemp's work at 'First Thursdays' (where galleries are open in the East End and there are free beers). Thought her work was fun (and very affordable to boot).

Feeling Fearne

Looking much like a bobbed version of Twiggy, there’s no denying the sixties influence behind Fearne Cotton’s latest collection for Loving the blue shift.

Burberry's New Body

"© Copyright Burberry/Testino"

I opened the Metro this morning and my eyes were met with Rosie Huntingdon-Whiteley languishing naked beneath a carefully draped, rose gold satin trench. Few things have made me question my sexuality of late but this was definitely borderline.

The reason for this rather risqué campaign? The model is launching ‘Burberry Body,’ the brand’s new fragrance.

Christopher Bailey says:

"Burberry Body is the most exciting launch that we have ever created and captures the iconic spirit of the brand today in a striking and sensual way. Rosie's effortless style and her staggering beauty made her the natural choice as the first Burberry Body."

And Rosie:

''It’s a huge honour to be working with Burberry again, a brand that put my career on the map and helped launch me. To be asked to be the first 'Burberry Body' is an amazing compliment.''

I predict a media stir similar to that of the Brooke Shields/Calvin Klein collaboration (“nothing comes between me and my Calvins”).

Bet some other things will be stirring too…

I Love House of Sunny!

House of Sunny's first collection, sponsored by TIGI, drew in an unprecedented crowd of over 800 followers. Top photographer Wayne John shot the featured collection’s Look Book. The line’s key piece was used for the Tigi campaign by JIV. Italian Vogue picked up on the buzz and the label hit an ultimate high when the fashion bible featured the brand. The label’s future was quoted as looking ‘bright’ and named as 'The House of the Rising Sun'.

Sunny says, “The clothes are made with something very special and we sell them to ladies who understand this. They are exclusive pieces that are stooped in impact and sincerity, but only if you understand them. Fashion is very personal. Like you hang a painting on the wall, it’s an idea of hanging a piece on you”.

The Pyjama Store

It might be a sign I’m getting older, but at the moment (when I’m not working late, flat-hunting or partying) I like nothing better than coming home, putting my pyjamas on and getting into a freshly-made bed. I defy any hard-working girl to deny they love this too. What can tilt the level of this enjoyment to climax? Why, a brand new pair of PJs of course! The Pyjama Store have lots of lovely ones and they’re on sale at the moment – back of the net zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

How Fabulous!

Sarah (of and I made our heady debut in Fabulous Magazine lately. We're the ones in the circle and yes, I am the one grabbing for a canape as if my life depended on it. Classy.

We received our fifteen minutes for attending a blogging event at Fabulous HQ. It was great fun; we got our hair and make-up (they used MUA products) done, dressed up in New Look threads (in honour of their Style the Nation TV program) and then took part in a fashion show. I had one too many and began to think various one-legged poses would be a good idea. They were not, obviously. I will leave these shots to your imagination and leave you with some (slightly) more sedate images.
