At the Ulanka Flagship store opening

THIS time last week I was trying on shoes and pigging out with the likes of Carrie, Tamara and Andreea whilst at Ulanka's first UK  flagship opening on 153 Oxford St. To say I fell head over heels (sorry, had to) would be an understatement. In the cold, rainy streets of London the (warm!) Spanish retailer stood out from miles away - or maybe that was just the Mediterranean food that that guided me. Either way, I couldn't wait to step inside. 

Offering well-known labels and personal favourites such as Vans, Converse and Birkenstock, Ulanka also sells a selection of shoes exclusive to their label. If you havn't already taken a sneak peak at my new shoes in my latest outfit, here's a little spoiler for you: I came home with the Natural Sur zebra flats. Ya rly. Me. In espadrilles. It's now a thing apparently. And trust me, I'll be coming back for the leopard pair (and about fourteen other pairs of shoes) soon enough. See you there?

What's in the April Love Me Beauty box

Beauty

IT terrifies me to think that we're already over a third of the way through 2014. I mean, really? The only plus side about time passing so quickly is having the Love Me Beauty box come through my door every month. Oh I know how to live.

April's box - just like all of the other boxes I've been sent - doesn't disappoint. I've been working on a little self/life makeover lately (when do I not say that?) so the fact that this box is full to the brim with hair care and oils makes me a very happy girl. I decided to choose Menu 3 which included a full-sized cleansing shampoo by Neal & Wolf (also known as the nicest smelling stuff ever), a full-sized moisturising oil and a nail polish in peachy orange shade. Say goodbye to the nude nails my friends, things are about to get wild.

Have you ever tried a monthly beauty box?

How I styled the 'Sports Luxe' Edit with John Lewis

Outfits

WHEN you're approached by John Lewis to style an outfit based on their latest Sports Luxe Edit, the outcome of the look is pretty obvious, for me anyway. I'm talking about my (almost) trademark sweats and vest combination that - at least in my mind - never seems to get old. Paired with the usual suspects (and with the addition of some new 'drilles) thrown over the shoulders and around the waist I guess you could say this is my idea of spring-meets-sport essemble. All that's missing is the personal trainer..although I suppose I have my boyfriend for that one. Anyone notice his name in the credits above? Bois got skillz.

How I spend my day in the country

Outfits

THERE really is no place like home - which is where I'll be for the next two weeks. I've had my first proper night's sleep in months (no thanks to my neighbours back in London) and woke up to a bed filled with cats. My own, of course - although all are welcome. 

This afternoon I've decided to leave my desk for a bit of fresh Cornish air, soon to be followed by a trip to le boyfriend's (who I haven't seen for nearly a month!) and a big all you can eat Chinese meal with his family. Not a bad day at all if you ask me. I wish I had something overly interesting and groundbreaking to say in this blog post, but since I've been asleep for the past eighteen hours not much has really happened. Instead, I'll leave you with yet another outfit featuring me in a dress. Until next time!

Twelve hours in Amsterdam with Team Creators

Travel

LAST FRIDAY I travelled to and from Amsterdam in less then 24 hours - I think that's a record? Either way I'm damn proud of myself for still being able to mentally function without sleep for nearly two days. As you may have already seen on the other CofD blogs, there are some changes coming to the site. Good changes! Over the past few days I've been working like a crazy woman behind my desk in preparation for the new plans I have for le blog (note the slight aesthetic changes ey ey) so if things get a little quiet on my end you'll know why. That being said, I'd love to know a little bit about what you'd like to see from me.

Leave any ideas (or questions) in the comments below!

PS. My Wardrobe is running an insane offer which gives you a free flight ticket to one of ten destinations (including good old Amsterdam) whenever you spend £100 or more online. Um..hell yes? Terms and conditions are here. Looks like I'll be back sooner rather than later then..
