Company Blogging Forum 2013

Leather Jacket: PRIMARK
Top: H&M
Trousers: FOREVER 21
Necklace: TOPSHOP

As I am an avid reader of Company Magazine and literally get so excited for the drop of the magazine on my front door mat every month I decided to quickly grab myself a ticket to Company's Blogging Forum held at Kings College London.
I've been blogging for quite a few months now but still haven't quite mastered it and I thought whats better than actually being advised by the professionals in the industry into help making my blog better. My answer to that is absolutely nothing. With a panel consisting of Editor of Company Magazine Victoria White, Susie Lau aka Susie Bubble aka Style Bubble, Rhannion blogger for Fashion Rocks my Socks, Rox from Boohoo, Krista from Handpicked Media and Sally from Oh my Love I was definitely in for some good advice.
On arrival I was a nervous wreck considering I was by myself and thought I was going to be late after trekking it round London Bridge asking anybody and everybody where the hell the college was ( I even followed some girl because she looked fashionable and thought she might be going there too and turns out she did haha.) Nerves quickly went away when I started talking to the lovely blogger Siobhan from Ireland. We both quickly nabbed ourselves a glass of rose and wondered around the room looking at all the other eager bloggers (it was so lovely being in a room where everybody shares an interest in something and is keen to learn more.) Me and Siobhan didn't get to stand around for long before we met the lovely Natalie from Company Magazine and were whisked away outside to be shot for Company Street Style. The Fashion Team were so lovely and down to earth and me and one of the ladies even shared a common interest in buckled healed sandals. (We shared the blister stories too as we both had plasters at the ready.)

After the meet and great we entered the lecture theatre for an inspirational talk and a fab goodie bag topped off the excitement. Goodie bag exploring over and lusting over our Alice Temperly Filofax's , such wise words floated around the room and made me so eager to make my blog even better. It really helped me have someone who is actually in the industry tell me the best ways to blog, I know it seems like common sense with somethings but so many mistakes can be made and it has really helped me and given me confidence in my blogging.

Something that really stood out to me was from Sally for Oh My Love London "it's not necessarily about your follower numbers, it's more about how engaged your followers are". I may not have an amazing following but I hope that you enjoy my long rambles as much as I enjoy writing them.

Overall, it was a great night and even better that I got to personally meet Susie Lau who is such a great inspiration to me with my writing and journalistic skills.

Thank you Company magazine for supporting bloggers so much, you give so many opportunities to help people aspiring to thrive in the industry and it doesn't go unnoticed and thank you again for an amazing night. I better go get my blog on now haha!

Another two days at CAGECITY, another two outfits. Here is what I wore this week. I've been completely mixed up this week regarding weather and fashion what with the muggy weather we've been having. Exposing my ghostly pale legs was too much considering the forecast rain so I decided to don a pair of my summer trousers. I love these trousers, I bought them last year from H&M and I say they are my summer trousers but you can catch me wearing them in the winter with a thick black jumper. They are just so easy to wear especially paired with a plain top, they simply do the styling for you what with there bold floral print.

Even more grey clouds in the morning yesterday called for another fashion meltdown. Clothes everywhere, hot flushes were in fall swing but I finally just pulled on my trusty pair of high waisted black skinny jeans from Dorothy Perkins and my stripy monochrome t-shirt from H&M. Comfort at it's finest. Also I wore the same sandals on both days as they are literally my style savours at the moment, they are my white strap and buckled sandals from Primark, nothing sounds better then a Primark style bargain does it. Sometimes sandals really rub my feet or break, being Primark ones too I thought they most definitely would but I can honestly say that these sandals are rub free and seem to be very sturdy considering I wear them 24/7.
Enough about my outfits and moving into the serious business of work. Again this week at CAGECITY I've been in contact with some great bloggers which we are looking to collaborate with I can't wait to meet them they seem so lovely. Also I have been tweeting my little ass off and blogging blogging blogging. Check out my latest posts here for CAGECITY: end of exam style saviours and some Friday loving.
I have got to say if you are desperate for the killer unique post exam party dress I would definitely recommend this Finders Keepers 'You sent me T-shirt Dress' I've had my eye on it for far too long and it just teases me in the office with it's beautifulness.
Hope you've all had a great week and will have an even better weekend.

Birthday Celebrations

On Thursday it was my 19th birthday and after working so much lately it was lovely to have a few days break to just chill with my family, boyfriend and friends. Cliche I know but it was lovely. On my birthday me and the boy went to Las Iguanas, after such a lovely trip there a few weeks back I had to take him to experience also and making it just in time before Happy Hour finished the cocktail pitchers went down a treat too before we moved upstairs into the restaurant. If you are heading there anytime soon I would definitely recommend the Mango Collins if you're looking for a tropical burst in your drink. A night of giggles, good food and drink it was definitely a birthday to remember. On the night I decided to wear to my new Forever 21 outfit and Topshop blazer. I've been looking for black trousers with a white stripe down them for ages- the H&M were an awkward size but likely routing around in the Forever 21 sale I grabbed a bargain and the orange top paired with it turns a simple monochrome outfit into something much more summery. Oh and I couldn't help but sport my River Island heeled sandals too for that dressy/ casual approach to my evening attire.
Friday night was a complete switch, I dolled myself up in Zara floral dress, hair in rollers, fake eyelashes and tan, the lot, throw in my best friends and it was a great night out in London. After a complete drama at Vodka Revolutions Leadenhall ( I would advise everyone not to go here, unless you can deal with rude bouncers and false advertisements) we headed for Light Bar which is situated near Liverpool Street. Way too dressed up for the bar but when the drinks came a flowing and the dance moves were busted out I could have been wearing a bin liner and I would have still had a great time oh I danced the night away to house music. I would definitely recommend this bar to anyone who is looking for a relaxed but fun night out. If you just want to chill with your mates you can sit downstairs but if your bones start to jig and you are coming so intoxicated that your dance moves are starting to resemble your Dads then head upstairs to party the night away.

So here's a few snaps of my birthday celebrations, thank you for everyone who joined me on them.

Cagecity Internship

Sorry for the late post regarding my internship diary with Cagecity its been a busy week what with my birthday celebrations and the recovery process of it haha. It was a short week for me at Cagecity as I worked from home on one of my days. I spent my two days at Cagecity researching for bloggers again and emailing various ones.
At Cagecity we are soon to be starting our blogger collaboration, we are selecting amazing London bloggers to come and be featured in our clothing. They will get the chance to have a photo shoot and style themselves head to toe in Cagecity and then be featured on our blog. Sounds fun doesn't it? Having been in contact with some brilliant bloggers I can't wait to meet them. I've found some truly inspirational blogs lately and it is just making me strive to make mine better. I may not have an amazing camera, I'm a dreadful model but I am driven to make my blog the best it can be, even if that does mean I've got to teach myself some modelling techniques haha, maybe I'll be Britain's Next Top Model when I get to the end of this (Elle Macpherson prepare yourself). One thing is for sure though, after seeing some exceptional photography skills money is already entering into my savings account as I am starting to save for an SLR camera. Does anybody have any suggestions of what one to get? Preferably ones that don't break my bank account I am student after all.
If you are a London blogger though and wish to collaborate with Cagecity then email me at and we are still accepting affiliates so also contact me at that email too.
Blogging discussion over and moving onto my outfit, what with the typical British weather we've been having this past week (sorry I thought it was June obviously the weather didn't get that memo) I decided to wear my new Aztec jumper I bought off Ebay. It was such a brilliant find and even better for only £11. I adore the colours on it and it is very light weight so I don't feel like I'm dressing up for winter. Pairing it with black jeans I opted for the casual look this week and
putting on my new £4 gold necklace for a touch of structure and uniqueness to my look I felt like the bargain style Queen. As for my second day that was spent on my sofa in PJ's blasting Kisstory and scrolling the Internet researching.

Cagecity Internship

Just another two days at Cagecity and what brilliant two days they have been, I've been blogging, researching and blogging a bit more and boy do I love it. I've been in contact with some wicked bloggers and have been so inspired by some of them.
Here's what I've been wearing to work and because we've been blessed by the sun it had to happen at some point this year my legs are actually out. Pasty I know, some fake tan may be in order but who cares because the sun is shining and I'm donning my new shades like the summer baby I am no one can wipe the smile off my face. I say this but on my way home from work last night I got stuck in the train doors. Now there is no way you can style yourself out of that one because I turned into some helpless mess while about ten struggled to open the doors for me. Think that has to go down in history as one of my most embarrassing moments. So too all you interns out there who are trekking it on the train a word of warning to you train doors wait for no one and the bloody hurt when they trap you.
Transport for London hate over and back to Cagecity if any of you lovely fashion bloggers wish to be an affiliate for Cagecity contact for more details and don't forget to check out Cagecity's Love Friday post
Have a great weekend chicks will you be raving or behaving?

House of Halo's

Last night after not seeing some of my university girls for what seems like ages we headed down to The Bloggers Love House of Halo's event at The Penthouse Leicester Square. This being my first bloggers event I didn't know what to expect, but greeted by friendly faces, exquisite accessories and breath taking London views I couldn't have been happier, not to mention the free bar, Dermalogica gifts sets and nail bar that definitely did not go a miss.
Arlene Barclay, the face behind House of Halo's is known as the only hair accessory designer that is striving to supply the fashion industry with couture hair accessories that appear as art. Emeli Sande was quick to notice this and was honoured to wear her own handcrafted House of Halos' necklaces and now Barclay is seeking an investor to launch the brand worldwide.
Moving back to the event, there were various tables scattered around the room with jewel encrusted crowns, beaded necklaces and hair accessories, I had serious accessory envy- the craftsmanship was excellent from Barclay. I only wish Barclay was around to mingle with the bloggers and discuss her beautiful designs but we did get to see her walk proudly out after the fashion show of the various accessories.
Feeling very patriarchal with the royal jewelled crowns on show, the event boasted elegance and uniqueness with the hand-crafted accessories, the detail of every item is so dainty you can tell Barclay slaves over these and it is definitely worth it.
Head over to House of Halo's official site to witness for yourself Barclay beautiful creations.

Cagecity Internship

This week has been so hectic- boyfriend coming back from Uni and getting ready to start my internship as Cagecity's blogger. I've undergone many work experiences before but have got to say I felt so welcome at Cagecity and I've only been there two days. Internships always get bad publicity, the stereotypical view of you will be the companies skivvy but I can honestly say Cagecity have made me feel so involved in their new brand and whats more exciting is I'm there when Cagecity are at the beginning and it will be so lovely to see them grow into something big. From writing blog posts to researching fashion bloggers to collaborate with the online site I've never felt so inspired.
When I take on work experience in the fashion industry, I don't know about you but I always stress over what I'm going to wear to work, for instance is what I'm wearing fashionable enough? Is it suitable for work? Will they like what I'm wearing? It's just that thing with fashion it comes with set judgements but here at Cagecity I've never felt so relaxed about my style. Cagecity's ethos is to not take yourself too seriously with fashion- don't be a slave to it, just have fun and be yourself. There's no threatening elitist fashion atmosphere, Cagecity is just a down to earth, hard working company that is definitely going places.
So after my two very first inspiring days at Cagecity I can't wait to get back to work next week.
Check out Cagecity's site here, you'll find some wicked clothes and its just been payday, so go spoil yourself:
Also check out my latest blog post for them:
So here's what I wore on my first two days. Keep following my blog each week to follow my internship.
