Top, Leggings: Sweaty Betty, Trainers: New Balance



Last week I arrived at the Shard in London to attend yoga with the Farfetch team. For those who are unaware of Farfetch, they create an inspirational shopping experience to fashion forward consumers and house luxury avant-garde designer brands online and within their 400 fashion boutiques creating an innovative approach to merchandising and selling. Allowing their customers to shop handpicked exclusive pieces delivered from the boutique straight to their home.

Taking the train at 7am in the morning wearing yoga gear surrounded by city workers was very strange. But as soon as I arrived at the shard on the top floor to breathtaking iconic views 1,016ft high above ground level, it was totally worth it! I have done yoga a few times before, however working out with London as a back drop somehow just made me relax and really let go of any stresses and anxiety I had prior. Some of the moves were quite complex but the trainer really engaged with us and made us feel very comfortable. 

Yogasphere at The Shard was founded by Mandy Jharmat and Leo Lourdes and provide the highest weekly yoga sessions in the world. Plus for every client that attends a class, Yogasphere plants 10 trees, and for every one to one session taken they plant 50 trees. Their aim is to plant 1 billion trees through yoga! I love working out for a cause..... that in itself is definitely an incentive to attend yoga at The Shard.

Afterwards Farfetch provided a gorgeous and of course healthy breakfast for us all at the Shangri-La Hotel in our own private dining space. We had yogurts, smoked salmon, egg and other yummy treats with a selection of teas. I definitely ate too much but the food was soooo good, and it was such a great way to start my day. Thanks again to the Farfetch team and Yogasphere for such an enlightening and relaxing experience!

Top, Skirt, Clutch, FascinatorEarrings: Coast, Shoes: Topshop (old)


Last month I attended Ascot for the very first time, and I couldn't have attended with a better brand than Coast, their press team, and a few other bloggers. If you have ever attended Ascot, you will know that Coast is the go to brand on the high street for occassion wear, I can't tell you how many outfits we spotted there.

Being more of a glam dresser this suited me to a T! I absolutely love getting dressed up to attend events and the fact that I was surrounded by so many gorgeous well dressed women on Ladies Day was a fantastic experience. I have always been a lover for a midi skirt and so as soon as Coast told me that I would be dressed head to toe in the brand, I instantly had an idea of what I wanted to wear. Browsing the website I  fell in love with this Ameliana skirt, the colour composition initially drew me in and the length was just perfect. Coast invited me to their Oxford St store to have a personal styling session to pick out my outfit. I initially went for this beautiful yellow skirt, as the Ameliana skirt was sold out. A week later I spotted it in John Lewis and I had to have it as it's definitely a piece I will wear again and again...timeless! With so many rules and regulations to dressing for Ascot, there was so much to consider when planning my outfit. Luckily we were in the Windsor Enclosure which meant that I was able to wear an off shoulder top finishing off my look with pearl earrings, this cute bow bag and a black fascinator

We took the train to Ascot from London which took around 45mins and then a short 10min walk from the station to the racing grounds. On arrival we had a luscious picnic and of course I placed a few bets... I mean I couldn't go all the way to Acot and not place at least one bet! Luckily I went home even so it was a good day in the end! It was such a lovely experience, with sun, champagne, and the juiciest of strawberries. Thanks again to Coast and the press team!

Over a month ago you will recall my trip to Paris and the amazing hotel experience I had the pleasure of staying at Hotel Splendid Etoile. This cute romantic hotel is what I now call my parisian secret as it's centrally located in the 17th arrondissement within walking distance from the Champs E'lysees and Charles des Gualle Etoile metro.

On arrival the staff were exceptionally welcoming with a bottle of champagne, truffles and snacks which went down a treat after travelling from the UK. I stayed in their corner suite which had sensational views of the Arc D'Triomphe and a balcony that wraps around the apartment. The room consisted of duck egg blue and hints of orange decor with a large closet in the hall way, ideal for a fashionable array of outfits. The marbled en-suite also had access to the balcony and views of paris. 

Along with a restaurant, bar, free wifi and dry cleaning available it has all you need for a comfortable stay. I can truly say that this hotel is by far one of my favourite destinations to stay in Paris. A special thank you to all the staff at Hotel Splendid Etoile as you truly made my experience in Paris a most memorable one.
