Fashion: Burberry x Henry Moore At Makers House

Burberry Exhibition London

For this year's London Fashion Week, Burberry impressed the industry with a very special treat. Like Louis Vuitton displayed its Series Three collection to the public for free in 2015 (Life Lately in London 4) or the legendary Alexander McQueen Savage Beauty exhibition, the British Luxury label showcased its brand new collection in an arty display at the uber cosmopolitan Makers House in Soho. The fashion exhibition was open to the public for one week only and completely commission free. 

In the midst of London's trendy Soho area, unnoticeable and blending perfectly into the surrounding brick, glass and edgy buildings, is Makers House - the key location for Burberry's Henry Moore Inspiration & Process exhibition. The warehouse with its stunning interior was perfect to celebrate the iconic style of Burberry which was inspired by the dynamic artwork of Moore. Its rough, industrial space underlined perfectly the composition of art and fashion, both arbitrary to each other but still so closely intertwined.

Lifestyle: My Wellbeing Events With John Lewis

What a week it has been! I've organised and executed my first, very own blogging events, learnt all about the benefits of green juicing and mastering the art of smoothie making, plus I met the inspirational Hayley Pedrick AND Lottie Murphy on the night and got to hang out with a lovely bunch of bloggers.

But let me start from the beginning: I've started 2017 with a new job in events in my company. My first few weeks of the year were therefore packed with planning two events for John Lewis which happened last Tuesday and Wednesday night.

Lifestyle: Blue Monday With PNY*

Blue Monday motivation

The weekend is over and it is Monday again - it's not just any Monday, but Blue Monday.

The concept of Blue Monday was first introduced in 2005 and today is meant to be the "most depressing day of the year". Blue Monday usually falls on the second or third Monday of January, whereas calculations for the happiest day of the year fall between 21-24th June. Depressing or not, it is still Monday and if you're like me mourning the end of the weekend and are in need of some motivation for the week then you should read on.

Fashion: 2017 Plans

New Look fashion blog post

Heya, how’s 2017 been treating you so far? Did you have a great start to the New Year? Mine started quietly as I didn’t go to any New Year’s Eve parties. Going into central wasn’t really an option for me either as I didn’t see the point of commuting 1h to Westminster, then having to wait a few hours in the cold for a 15-minute firework. So yeah, sat at home in the warmth, watched some telly, called my friends and family to wish them a Happy New Year at midnight and then went to bed. My next New Year’s will be more adventurous though as I’m currently planning my trip to Australia.

As my 2015 New Year - New Me reflections was quite a popular post, I thought I should share my personal review of 2016.

Fashion: Christmas Party

December is a bit of a weird month, don’t you think? The first half is dominated by hustle and bustle:  you have to finish your projects, keep deadlines and seal this important deal all before Christmas. Then follows the complete opposite – in the second half work usually slows down (because you know it’s Christmas), people become suddenly unavailable and anything urgent has to wait until the New Year.

Especially in the second half of December people love to eat, exchange presents, come together and socialise (even more than they already do in the rest of the year). Suddenly there are work breakfast invites popping up by the minute, Christmas cards circulate the office and the big highlight, the Christmas Party, is highly anticipated and THE topic of the office.

Lifestyle: eXchange iPad tablet jacket by Paperblanks

iPad air cover exchange paperblanks

Long have I struggled with myself if I should buy myself a case for my iPad. Given the fact that I barely use it and I'm generally very careful with my belongings, there wasn't really "the" need to have one. Plus, most of the models available have all been rather underwhelming and expensive if you ask me.

However, when Paperblanks released the eXchange series in autumn 2015, it was VERY hard to resist. The unique composition of an everyday item such as the case and Paperblanks' unmistakably signature print inspired by old manuscripts and world literature, remains a beloved all-time classic to me that not many stationery brands have achieved.

eXchange launched and I saw myself drooling over those tablet jackets but the heavy price tag of £50 kept me from buying. What do they say about the things we don't buy? Those will hunt us the most for the rest of our lives. An end had to be put to the misery this year, so my time came around when the Black Friday sale arrived. Hello 20% off! Not much, but still a nice touch to get a few £££ off the purchase. Fast forward two days and the eXchange Shiraz iPad Air tablet jacket together with an Edgar Allan Poe 2017 diary arrived fresh from Germany.
