I really really love simplicity, to just have little going on is enough. Less is more (so they say).  I wore this outfit to a stylist event in Shoreditch were I met very lovely and inspiring individuals.

Stylist network event

I was invited to a stylist network event in Shoreditch recently. Admittedly, I was a bit apprehensive about attending the event, as I have never been to any similar kind of events before. I didn't know what to expect and what it would be like at all. However, I find myself at a point in my life where I am encouraging myself to be bolder and try new things. In the words of Nate  Berkus “You will enrich your life immeasurably if you approach it with a sense of wonder and discovery, and always challenge yourself to try new things”. So I went, and how glad I am that I did.

This event opened up a whole new world for me and at the perfect time to be honest as I am starting to have an interest and a passion for beauty, fashion and photography. I met such kind and inspiring people who are really passionate and working towards their goals in the fashion industry. There were many bloggers, stylists, photographers and even magazine companies. It was an extraordinary atmosphere to be in, where people were very supportive and helpful. I will definitely be attending more events like this!

Below are a few pictures I took to show you what the studio looked like (Very beautiful) and a few of the people that attended the event.

With love.. From Paris.

I know summer is the time most people choose to travel but on a recent surprise trip to beautiful Paris my heart warmed to the magic of a vacation taken in spring bloom. Paris is a famously picturesque city with a lot of culture, history, architecture and food, oh glorious food, to take in. Travelling around Paris is quite simple by metro, which is very much like the London underground. However, I recommend a walk around the city’s streets, which do not have the hustle and bustle of Central London. This is the best way to tune in to the city’s heartbeat and let your mind wander through the arrondissements. It’s definitely the perfect destination for those who LOVE shopping and site seeing. Well suited for a short city break, you can probably see most of the tourist sights of Paris in two days. All this beauty does come at a cost though. Paris is quite expensive especially if you like the finer things in life. The locals are very friendly and strangers always seem to talk to you, even though I have to admit I know very little French. 

Overall the trip was an amazing and unforgettable experience. The highlights for me were the ascent up the Eiffel Tower, Cath├ędrale Notre Dame de Paris, dining at some of the finest restaurants in Paris and seeing the amazing paintings at the Musee du Louvre.  It all left me with a smile that even dear old Mona Lisa would have been jealous of. 

Below are a few of many captured moments at my trip.
