Vashi Diamonds Private Viewing

Christmas is fast approaching and it is known to be this special time of the year for a vast number of proposals so I though it would be a good idea to check out some of the diamond jewelry hot in town right now!

After all, diamonds are a girl’s best friend!

I was invited to join the private viewing of Vashi diamond and precious stone collection held at Tart Bar near Barbican in London.

Vashi has been recognised as the industry leader with a number of TV, radio and press reviews, and celebrities like Cheryl Cole and Rita Ora wearing his bespoke pieces.

The event brought together bloggers, designers and diamonds lovers, it was a perfect opportunities to try those beautiful pieces on. I certainly took full advantage!

Bloggers Love Hub event – 3rd November – Mahiki

On Monday, 3rd November I attended Bloggers Love Hub event organised by Danielle at the celebrity hotspot – Mahiki in London. The event brought together a number of fabulous brands and bloggers.

P1060062

The event brought together a number of fabulous brands and bloggers. The idea behind the get-together was for the bloggers to chat, exchange tips and meet with up-and-coming brands, of course.

I decided to wear this vibrant green Rokanda Ilinicic skirt and JOSEPH navy cashmere cropped jumper I featured recently on the blog.I teamed the outfit with this 3.1 Phillip Lim Minute clutch Bag in a demure midnight navy and these CHLOÉ calf leather two tone Moccasins. I popped on my favourite Links of London Watch Over Me necklace to finish the look.

There were the familiar faces like Yukimi Yau and Nadja Baxter.

The central part of the event was the fashion show orchestrated by Eva Cammarata – a womenswear designer who already showcased in New York, London and Paris. Her collection exploded with bold colours and unique textiles, and digital prints.

My favourite piece was the unusual calf-length, strapless print knit dress.

P1060117

One of the beauty brands I really liked was the Charcoal-Spa. Represented by Claire Hultton, the make offers a fantastic range detoxifying skin products including the salt scrubs, face masks and soaps that cleanse skin removing the daily built-up of impurities. Beautifully packaged, they make a perfect present!

I love leather so D-Jewelsus – up and coming brand was right up my alley. The label offers beautifully crafted leather jewellery & accessory designs and custom-made ones.

I loved the colour blocking trapezoid pieces as well the combination of leather with calf skin. These show stopping designs will certainly get you to stand out from the crowd!

P1060111

I also had a chance to meet Byron Rawlings from The Blogger Programme – the largest social platforms for bloggers, brands and publishers that facilitates initial contact and collaboration.

Later on I met one of the most amazing and experienced bloggers and U-Tubers – Leanne Lim Walker who was full of good advice for a fairly new blogger like myself. All the tips and feedback were greatly appreciated!

Fall in love with green…

As the new season sets in, I tend to favour a new hue so it is it about time to move on from my summer absolute favourite – peppermint to a bright shade of green.

This Roksanda Ilincic skirt epitomises what I love about the vibrancy of green and the volume of design. I picked it up on my all time favourite Yoox sale, still available if it takes your fancy:)

P1040537

It is made of cool wool which makes the fabric feel almost textured or embossed. The skirt features a captivating billowing structure cinched in waist with a black nylon band to highlight the waistline and a raw exposed zip at the back.

P1040571

P1040546

Navy is a great dark alternative to black and is more complimentary in its depth of colour.

P1040566

I find navy works very well as a base for green so I have opted for that JOSEPH navy cashmere cropped jumper I picked up on BrandAlley.

P1040535

it is a must for every wardrobe, made from luxuriously soft, lightweight cashmere, it is the perfect layering piece. I wear it with a silk shirt with contrast yellow collar for office as well!

I love the flattering crew neckline and cropped design.

P1040562

I teamed the outfit with this 3.1 Phillip Lim 31 Minute clutch Bag in a demure midnight navy. Timeless, chic and very modern – it is a great day-to-night clutch!

P1040528

I am a big fan of the fold-over structure and the hand holder that allows you to adjust its size depending on your needs are on a day!

P1040532
The zipped opening makes sure you do not lose anything while on on the go or even on a dance floor:)

I love shoes and finding out how new styles work for my my outfits always excites me so I ventured into not-so-frequented moccasin style.

P1040525

These CHLOÉ calf leather two tone Moccasins I got on a recent Yoox sale are just gorgeous.

P1040517

I applaud the towering block heel,  polished leather and metal applications!

P1040522

P1040514

I popped on my favourite Links of London Watch Over Me necklace and I am ready to rock my new look!

Here is the lovely JOSEPH Bi-Colour Stretch-Twill Dress, still available at MatchesFashion.comP1020183P1020187I love the graphic monochrome silk-crepe asymmetric front panel overlay and the 1960s-style shift silhouette giving that uber cool retro feel.
P1020201P1020200This gorgeous  A-line shift dress  is somehow re-imagined in an modern, structured, silk-weave with slight stretch and concealed shoulder zip.
