My blog posts have been a little few and far between lately, so as a quick explanation, here's a little of what I've been getting up to when I've not been here...

At Work: 

Settling into my role and getting my thinking cap on. Tweeting, facebooking and blogging. Emailing customers and styling products. Packing orders and drinking hot chocolate. Answering phones and lusting over new stock.

At Play: 

Eating breakfast at Bills and exploring Brighton. Learning how to make cosmopolitans and befriending bartenders. Baking cookies and drinking champaign. Making new friends and laughing with old ones. Going to gigs and swooning over rockstars. Staying in hotels and sampling rum. 

Curling up with someone special and feeling on top of the world.

Outfit : Weekend Kicks

During the working week I love making an effort with my wardrobe- tailored trousers, skirts and dresses.... so when the weekend comes around I usually have one thing on my mind: denim. Over the years I've acquired a few pairs of jeans and, lets face it, they are a staple in everyone's wardrobe. A couple of weeks ago I indulged myself in a casual look, teaming a ripped skinny pair with white converse and a bobble top. I threw my hair in a top-knot and added some sunnies for a laid back Saturday look.

Top: Warehouse
Necklace: Topshop
Jeans: River Island
Trainers: Converse

Do you have a go-to weekend look?

Creative Sweets

Hands up who uses Adobe's Creative Suite? This one's for you....

 One of my incredibly talented friends Tom O'Malley has combined his expert design skills and quick wit to come up with 'Creative Sweets' wallpapers. Put together on a rather slick website, you can download free versions for your iPhone / iPad OR go old-school and buy yourself an actual print, (I know novel right?), either way these designs are pretty damn "sweet' (see what I did there?!?)

 To see more of Tom's skillz check out his website.

This is just one of many cool projects my friends are constantly thinking up, and I'll be blogging their genius ideas more and more over the next few months, so stay tuned..... 

Do any of you have any super talented friends?

Just a minute.... September


(really must start doing these in the appropriate month, not a week or so into the next one...)

Making: Brownies and cookies, getting back into the baking habit :)

Watching: Submarine- not what I expected, but was a very good film with a great soundtrack.

Reading: Alek Wek's biography, a fantastic read for anyone interested in fashion and the world of modelling.

Listening: Austra, Ben Howard, Radiohead and Peggy Sue's new album.

Buying: Green maxi skirt, men's necklaces, oh and drinks. Lots and lots of drinks.

Loving: LIFE! I'm so happy right now it's actually a little sickening. I'm one of those happy people singing to herself on the tube.

Song of the week.....

James Vincent McMorrow- where have you been all my life? This song makes me weak at the knees.

Have been a little emotionally slutty with music recently, falling in love far too easily..... I kinda like it though.

Have you fallen for any tracks recently?

Work Wishlist

One of the problems with working in the fashion industry is the CONSTANT temptation. All day long at Question Air I am packing beautiful clothing and sending them off to lucky customers. With every fold of tissue paper my heart breaks a little more *sob*

To make matters worse, over the last couple of weeks I've had the chance to work in one of the boutiques and have tried on, and consequently fallen in love with, several pieces.

With this in mind, here is my current wishlist from work....

This is the piece I am most likely to purchase, the fabric hangs so beautifully and I just can not get over the pretty print. 

A brand I've heard described as 'the cashmere of denim' Goldsign make the softest, stretchiest denim I have ever felt. They fit like a dream and will last forever. A true denim investment.

I've always wanted a cape in my life, and I love the heritage element of this one.

This is begging to be worn with cropped chinos, heels and an oversized envelope clutch *sigh*

Another pair of ankle boots have stolen my heart- obsessed with the studding detail.

I love a bit of tie dye, and YFB certainly knows how to do it. I want to wear this in Autumn with a chunky knit and block heeled ankle boots.

Do any of you have this kind of work related issue? 

PS Question Air are currently having a 3 day flash sale with some serious bargains! Take a look here if you're interested :)
