A couple of weeks ago I worked on a campaign with Goodwin Smith to showcase their new The London Edit and I'm super excited to finally be able to show you the results. The London Edit is inspired by the city, made for the man - a collection of 12 shoes and boots in classic styles and colours. What I love most about this collection is that there is a style for everyone, with designs that are an entry into the incredible Goodwin Smith brand.
It's been a while since I've got out of London but yesterday I took a short staycation to Brighton on the Southern coast of England. There are some absolutely beautiful city, coast and country locations in our own backyard and I want to spend more time exploring and appreciating our own stunning country. Over the next few months, I'll be visiting and reviewing a number of different staycation locations, situating myself in Mercure hotels which are of a mid-range price point. For November I've headed to Brighton and in December I'll be travelling up to Scotland to visit Inverness and Aberdeen, so check back for my regular UK travel updates and hotel reviews.
Trying to stay fit and healthy over the winter months is something I've struggled with all of my life, along with pretty much every other 'normal' non #FitFam Londoner! Winter is party season, it's cold outside and it's just so easy to make excuses not to keep up with your fitness regime that we all had nailed in the summer. Well this year is different, I've booked myself up for a winter full of KOBOX classes as well as a monthly membership to British Military Fitness, which is outdoor high-intensity training plus I've still got my monthly membership to Virgin Active in Clapham Old Town. Yes I'm all or nothing when it comes to fitness and wellbeing! Wish me luck.
Whilst it might present a dozen or so compatibility issues, relationships aren't all fostered around the amount of zeros on your pay cheque. However, often many of the personality traits that define a one-percenter are the ones that you should be looking to imbibe. If they've made it to the top of the economical food chain, chances are they've had to knuckle down at some point during their lives. This could mean a lot of study, a lot of long hours, early mornings and no weekend breaks.
I was borderline to having a flight of fancy whilst proverbially window shopping around the luxury fashion websites over the weekend, Harvey Nichols, Mr Porter and Farfetch just to name a few. These sites have got quite the portfolio - their impressive stables famously house brands like Valentino, Saint Laurent, Givenchy and Comme des Garcons amongst others. I've put together a wish list below, let me know what you think of my picks in the comment box below.
