Lifestyle: Latest Blogger Events in London

Blogger Events London 2017

With Halloween and Christmas just around the corner, Q4 is one of the busiest seasons events-wise. London has never seen so many blogger events popping up: from private Halloween screenings to Christmas-themed parties, I had the pleasure to work and deliver two very fun and interesting events lately.

Mira Moments at Six Storeys

Mira is a luxury brand of bath and shower equipment – think shiny stainless steel showerheads and sleek glass shower screens. With the colder season approaching, we wanted to show bloggers and press how to enhance their everyday routine and integrate a much needed pampering Me Time to relax and unwind after work.

I’ve started working on the project back in April with a first draft of the idea, including some data-led research and five suitable venues that fit the client brief. However, after the research was presented, I never heard back if the idea was going to be realised and the project was suddenly put on hold. It wasn’t until later in the year, when the project came back slightly tweaked onto my desk and I was given a six-week turn-around to deliver the idea.

Fashion: David Clulow Style Event

ClulowStyle event

Hi there, when I came back from my last holiday in July, I had four events projects waiting for me in my inbox. Hence why blogging had to take a bit of a backseat these past few weeks but I'm excited to share the latest event with you that I've organised and delivered for David Clulow. 

David Clulow is a luxurious optician with branches all over London. They are specialists in eye care, offering comprehensive eye tests and selling mostly frames by high-end labels such as Ray-Ban, Gucci, Dolce & Gabbana and Prada. 80% of medical eye conditions can be detected by regular checks, so it is vital to have your eyes tested every two years. It was, therefore, a core theme at the event to raise awareness for precautionary eye care and to introduce the stylish brand to influencer.

Lifestyle: Exploring Brussels In A Day

brussels day trip travelling in europe

City breaks have never been as popular as they are now. Our world is so well connected these days that it is easy to get on a train after work on a Friday and just leave for the weekend. Come back on a Sunday relaxed and with a bag full of lasting memories. The little escape usually takes no more than three days and is a welcome break from the mundane routine of a 9-5pm workweek. 

Having been on a city break to Amsterdam and Paris this year already, I was keen to explore another European capital and tick off my travel list. I always wanted to go to Brussels as I've never really visited Belgium properly. One of my colleagues visited the city not so long ago and said that you could easily view the sights within a day. Perfect, as there was no need in booking accommodation for the trip: wake up in the morning in my bed in London, spend the day in another country and fall back asleep at home in the UK - simple!

Said and done - I booked myself a ticket mid-week and ventured on a day trip to Brussels.

Fashion: Balenciaga's Shaping Fashion Exhibition

Balenciaga Shaping Fashion exhibition in London review

After Burberry's Henry Moore Exhibition at Makers House and Alexander McQueen's Savage Beauty, a new fashion exhibition has made it to London town: Cristobal Balenciaga's Shaping Fashion at the Victoria & Albert Museum is an absolute must! 

Shaping Fashion marks the centenary of the opening of Balenciaga's first fashion house in San Sebastian and the 80th anniversary of his famous second one in Paris. With a focus on the designer's most creative period, the 1950's and 60s, the exhibition opened officially a few weeks ago in May and will run until February 2018.

Shaping Fashion is the first ever UK exhibition showcasing Balenciaga's work and highlighting his influence on today's fashion industry, e.g. designs by Hussein Chalayan are on display, too. The reason to put emphasis on a later stage in Balenciaga's career was mainly as he produced a significant amount of bespoke designs for high-end clients. It was also the time in which Cristobal introduced iconic shapes to the fashion world that we can't live without today, such as the baby doll shape, the tunic, the shift dress and the sack.

Fashion: Oysho Summer Look

Oysho summer oufit ootd fashion post

Shopping belongs as much to a holiday as the extensive sightseeing. Whenever I'm abroad, I put a few hours aside to browse through the local High Street retailers in the hope to bring back home some fashion finds. My latest discovery is the Spanish fashion brand Oysho, which funnily enough, I found during my to trip Paris in France.

Fashion: Smart Casual With Gant*

Gant smart casual outfit fashion post

Oh, the weather has been absolutely magnificent lately in London and I'm happy we seem to get more than three days of sunshine and warmth this summer. I had the chance to enjoy a picnic at Greenwich Park with my friends and also relaxed on my balcony, as I moved into a shiny new place over the last few days. Yes - lots has happened these past few weeks and I now live in zone 3 which allows me to get to work within 40mins tops - bye, bye long commute and hello free time for blogging!

The new place is a bit smaller than my previous flat so I had to declutter and part from a few beloved pieces, but new space in the wardrobe means space for new stuff, right? At first, I felt overwhelmed when I got the news to move out, but now I feel relieved that it has happened and settling into a new environment feels like a fresh start.

I'm still settling in and a few things need to be sorted out in my new place, hence why I haven't had much time for blogging lately. With a shorter commute and the longer days in the summer though mean I will have a bit more time to invest into StyleLingua and I cannot wait to share soon another summer-inspired outfit with you.

The forecast for the coming weeks promises lots of warm weather and sunshine. Whilst it is tempting flip-flopping around all day in your comfy harem trousers, dressing smart casual for the office is another story. What can I wear to work? becomes then one of the major first world problems (followed by What's for lunch?).

Fashion: Costes Summer Outfit

Costes Summer Top Outfit of the Day

During my Amsterdam holidays, I spent some time shopping and, maybe it's just me, but I've noticed that the European High Street has become more and more globalised, don't you think? Whereas a few years ago, you may have only found e.g. Topshop in the UK, you now see their branches suddenly in Copenhagen or Amsterdam. Only and Vila, two established brands on the German High Street are just next door and there's, of course, the obligatory H&M and Primark, too. Standardised like everywhere else, it seems.

Amsterdam luckily has a few shopping areas in central so apart from the usual shops, you have the chance to see other areas with more - let's say it - local brands and retailers. Whilst I wandered around the familiar shops I was wondering if there were even any Dutch fashion brands left to discover or if they all had disappeared entirely from the High Street due to the stark international competition. I was not aware of any specific Dutch fashion brands in particular at the time but was keen on finding out. One thing I love doing whilst on holidays is to check out the local fashion landscape and look through foreign collections in the hope to take back home some unique pieces with me.
