I accidentally fell into the sales at Zadig and Voltaire on Saturday, dangerous territory, as this is one of my favourite shops, the one on South Molton Street has the coolest wallpaper.
After a heavy day of shopping, it was time for another Launch party, this time, the creme of watch makers and official timekeepers of the Olympics, opened Omega House. A temporary members club, which membership is by invitation only is for Omega's guests during the Olympics. The impressive members club situated on 1 Greek Street in Soho was designed to an extremely high standard with every room reflecting different Omega collections. The event was attended by an impressive guest list, including Nicole Kidman, Eddie Redmayne (my future husband!) and many more! During the games they will be hosting various VIP parties and events, I'll be heading there again on Wednesday for another party.. oh dear Berocca at the ready for Thursday!!!

Finally I have ended with my favourite of all... Flat Cap in my opinion the Caviar of coffee places, forget fancy cafes with fashionable industrial lighting and wooden floors, this is just a cart and is all about the coffee! Run by Brazilian Fabio Ferreria, who knows his regular clients by name, asking after their health and family, whenever he sees them! His coffee is exquisite and has deep amaretto tones! You will find him in Borough Market and Westminster, well worth a visit!
London is packed with some amazing coffee shops from all over the world, these are only a few of my favourites.. which are yours?
Enjoy my caffeine highs!

If you're anything like me, I get bored of my wardrobe so often and this unhealthy attitude is a killer on the bank balance! Therefore, I've started recycling old items and giving them a much needed face lift!
I started with this old shirt which I actually used to sleep in! It was so long, I thought about turning into a kind of shirt dress, perfect for evenings out with the girlies or holidays with my vintage white shorts!
Replace the buttons with something slightly more interesting to match the silk..
Jazzing up old items is a great way to revamp your wardrobe, little things which are easy to do like replacing buttons on shirts or jackets to dying jeans makes a big difference and will prologue your desire to whip out that credit card and attack the highstreet.. well at least for a week or so!!

Today I spotted this beautiful gazellesque creature wandering through Soho. Wearing leather trousers with a tweed jersey jacket, I love this use of contrasting materials... tres chic!
With large headphone casually slung round her delicate neck, leather, tweed, this chick has an awesome style. She photographed beautifully, no guessing this little stylish lady was a model!

No, before start wondering, Burberry haven't started making 'little green' aliens.. this is the new addition to my clutch collection and although a previous season, I simply adore it.
This morning waking up to another dull day in London, I grabbed my new patent clutch to add some va va voom to my day and outfit! From the SS11 Burberry Prorsum collection, this bag sold incredibly well and was part of a wonderfully bright collection of patent leather clutches in bright orange, neon pink and this green!
I am wearing: Denim shirt; Topshop, Top; D&G; Leggings; Burberry Prorsum; Bag; Burberry Prorsum, and booties; Ash!

Standing in the penthouse of the Verge Mayfair's new luxury apartments sipping champagne and leaning against the Italian sourced Herringbone wallpaper, I found myself thinking.. yep I could live like this...
With views over Oxford Street these are the new luxury Mayfair apartments to hit the property and fashion scene, with interiors designed by the extremely talented Freddie van Zevenbergen.
The apartments, set in the heart of fashion land, just off Bond Street and Oxford Street are the shopaholics dream! I couldn't help but do a spot of Style Stalking while looking over spectacular views of central London.
I loved Anna's style, wearing one of the new Zara AW12 studded leather jackets, I can so imagine this chick living in the divine studio apartment, with the flat screen TV, which when needed, rises out of the marble tops and turns 360 degrees, so that you can watch it from anywhere in the room. Swoooon!
I've always been a bit of a property geek and these apartments really hit every button, they were designed to such a high level that you couldn't help but think.. one day .. one day !!! But sadly while I'm in the fashion industry those days are a fair bit away. With the studio priced at 1.6 million, I think I may have to cut back on the shoe shopping if I'm going to be sleeping in that bed anytime soon!!!
