British Fashion Awards.

It's been ages since I have posted one of these. So this week we saw the British Fashion Awards. I love the fact that we get to celebrate British fashion in all its glory. The competition was so high this year (and I can imagine it getting more and more difficult as time goes on. Glad I'm not the judge!) that everybody deserves to win. 

I loved the fact that Jourdan Dunn won British model of the Year. Congratulations!! 

The red carpet was filled with a lot of competition, the main contestants being black, prints and sheer lace. I absolutely love sheer lace and live the fact that it is in again as I felt it went a little quiet for a short period but has come back. My favourites coming from Tanya Burr and Cheryl Fernandez Versini. And who could forget one of my favourite power couples, the Beckhams, sporting matching Burberry outfits. 

So here are just some of my favourite looks from the event;
Jourdan Dunn in a Mugler gown and Jimmy Choos

David and Victoria Beckham both in Burberry

Rosie Hunnington - Whiteley in Burberry

Cheryl Fernandez Versini wore a bespoke Topshop dress with Sergio Rossi boots 
and jewellery by Monica Vinader and Eddie Borgo.

Welcome Gigi

Gosh where did the time go? I swear October was here like two minutes ago. 

This was meant to be an October favouorites piece but to be honest, there was only one thing taking the center stage in this post so I changed it slightly. 

I would like to introduce everyone to Gigi. This is the newest member of my family. She arrived towards the end of October and I have not been able to put her down ever since. 


I bought it second hand, after a lot of research and I couldn't be happier. The reason why I bought the mini version is because all my bags are either really big or just not always practical. I always feel that the bigger the bag, the more stuff I tend to put in it. Trust me when I say, I pack everything. Worst of all, I am a little neat freak and my bag has to be in order. I hate just throwing things in. 

But now with this small bag, I cannot do that and it has become a challenge. 

It was quite difficult going from a big bag to a small bag and eliminating stuff became really difficult (even now I still worry that I have not got enough in my bag). But it also meant that I could de-clutter. It's quite therapeutic. I love a bag that I can wear in different styles; whether it be on the shoulder, holding it, on my wrist or across the the body like a messenger. With Winter now upon us and Christmas just around the corner, having a bag that I can wear across my body is perfect for all those shopping bags that I would need to carry.
