To Jump or not to Jump – A matter of faith

Every now and then I like to blog about things other than fashion and this is one of those times. I know I know you all came here to read about how I put my outfits together but I need you all to lend me your eyes and your minds for five minutes so I can talk you about the importance of believing in yourself and having faith

“And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love” ! Corinthians 13:13 – There you have it, love wins all the time, but allow me to talk a bit about faith today.

As you guys know I have recently visited Croatia, specifically I went to Dubrovnik. You have to visit Dubrovnik to get a full idea of just how beautiful it really is. When you get there, and I really urge you to go there, the best place to get a bird’s eye view of the historic old town and its surroundings is at the top of the Srd hill (it’s a mountain, clearly me and the Croatians define things differently) . I kid you not when I say the views are breathtaking. On one side of Continue reading To Jump or not to Jump – A matter of faith

Venice – Bride of the sea

Late post alert! Late post alert! Late post alert!

I really need to up my game when it comes to sharing new articles. I seem to be at least a couple of weeks late these days. I’ll just blame it on my great work ethics in other areas.. side eye!

Anyway, here is another super quick post for all you travel buffs out there.

I went to Venice last month for a long weekend and i fell in love with this city. I have heard and read so many things about it but nothing prepared me for what i discovered. Then again, thats the magic of travelling. No matter what others tell you about a place, you can only fully appreciate it when you see it yourself. Continue reading Venice – Bride of the sea

Casual with a hint of class for Spring/summer

As you all know, summer is around the corner and for what it’s worth, the layers are falling off as fast as autumn leaves. As the temperature rises, naturally we wear less and gravitate more towards comfort. Even though the weather in Europe has taken a dive in the last couple of days, I thought it would be handy to do a quick post on spring/summer casual wear

For many people, the minute the word casual is mentioned, denim or tracksuit bottoms and trainers come to mind. Don’t get me wrong there is a place for the above but casual need not be that casual. The kind of casual I am talking about is one where you can walk into a classy bar and not feel out of place. IMG_7594I was away for a long weekend in Venice recently and I fully utilised the casual but classy look. I was able to pull off two different looks with changes to the top half of my outfits only Continue reading Casual with a hint of class for Spring/summer

Overnight bag: everything you need for a short trip

Travelling is one thing i love doing whenever i can. The fact that i live in London, which is relatively close to major cities in Europe is a blessing in itself. I did quite a bit of travelling in the last two years and this year will be no exception. This year, my first destination is Barcelona. In fact, i am sitting in my hotel room as i type this article this very minute. Literally walked in and thought i should drop a few lines. I absolutely love Barcelona for two main reasons which are food and architecture. Anyway don’t get me started on Barcelona yet, as this article is about what i carry with me when i travel for short trips.

If you travel as much as I do then you would have, at some point during your travels, arrived at your destination only to realize that you have forgotten an important item of use, and probably taken stuff you do not need at all. There is nothing more frustrating than packing your 200ml Terre d’Hermes or your 250ml Tom Ford tuscan leather (which may well be more expensive than your  flight), only to be told by airport security that you can’t take it with you as it exceeds the fluid limit allowed in your hand luggage. Ouch. This is generally caused by packing at the last minute or simply not planning your trip properly. Not only is it a massive inconvenience to not have the things you need with you, it has the potential to send your travel bill sky rocketing as you purchase these items.
