Today/Someday: Spring Skirts Edition

Whilst it may still be hideously cloudy and ever so slightly winter-esque here in England, don't let that stop you from prepping your wardrobe for spring! After my last Today/Someday post went down so well, I've decided to bring you another one, this time showcasing the very best of the ultimate spring staple: the skirt. Whether it's a macaroon-worthy lacey pastel affair you're after, or a structured, geometric colour block is more your thing, I've got you covered! And if spring doesn't show up, just remember to throw on a pair of tights!

Happy shopping! xo

Fashion Week Face Off: Paris or London?

With today's Miu Miu, Vuitton & McQueen shows marking the end of Paris Fashion Week; it's time to bid farewell to fashion month once again. No longer will our Instagram feeds be filled with Valencia-filtered first looks of new collections straight-off-the-runway, or street style from our favourite editors and envy-inducing #fromwhereistand shots from 'The Big 4' cities. Nope - it's time for those 'reserved for fashion week' accessories to go back into storage as schedules once again free up from running from show-to-show...

...or if you're like me, it simply means you'll actually look up from your phone once in a while, rather than constantly refreshing Twitter to see what theatrics Chanel managed to pull off this time. 

Whether you've been attending shows or living it all vicariously through the internet like me, you've probably noticed a few distinctions between the various cities. This is something that really interests me; how little nuances of the culture seep through into the elite troupe of editors and bloggers who travel from city to city. The lovely people at Stylight have created these incredibly ingenious and fun graphics which I think perfectly encompass those little distinctions between life at PFW & LFW. 

Check out my favourites after the jump!

Read/Wear/Listen/Want ¦ February

It's that time again! February was a busy month as expected - a whirlwind of my first exam, pancakes and dissertation research; all fuelled by hefty amounts of Valentine's chocolate.

I'll be quite honest - I have no idea what's going to happen blog-wise for the month ahead with my dissertation is due April 2nd, and numerous assignments due the preceding weeks! I do have numerous posts planned - it's just a case of whether I'll find the time to take photographs and write them up. So if things go a bit quiet - that's why.

beauty: NARS lip pencils in Palais Royal & Bahama

fabuleuse, toujours ¦ NARS Cosmetics Lip Pencils in Palais Royal and Bahama
My mum was generous enough to pick up these beauties on her recent trip to America, and I absolutely couldn't wait to try them out - especially after reading so much about NARS and having yet to actually try anything from them! Based on these products, I have mixed feelings so far, but they're generally positive...
