Fashion: All White For Amanda Wakeley LFW

Luxemme Amanda Wakeley SS16 London Fashion Week
Hi ladies, how are you? Do you know the following?: It's Saturday night, you've got nothing else planned bar snuggling up on your settee (maybe watch some Netflix) and suddenly, an email pops up in your inbox, which quite unexpectedly changes the entire course of your evening? Well, it has happened to me last weekend, when my friend Laura sent me a quick message asking me if I wanted to join her for the Amanda Wakeley Fashion Show. OMG course I did!

Lifestyle: Life Lately In London 3

Life and Style From London
I can't believe how fast another busy, yet super amazing week in London has gone by. I feel like I've experienced a lot more in the last two months of living here than I have in the past two years. It is incredible! So this week I made an appearance on the red carpet, attended my second London Fashion Week show, went for a job interview, tried and tested a very healthy breakfast cereal AND had a sneak peek at Karl Lagerfeld's AW15 collection (and the weekend isn't even over yet!).

SammyDress Hollow Dress Flare and Fit
Hi ladies, how are you? Last week, Karen got invited by River Island to attend this year's Cosmopolitan FashFest. She was allowed a plus one and have a guess whom she asked to come along!?! #bigsmile. The four day FashFest event ended with an epic fashion show on Thursday night, so it was time for us to dress up for a glamourous night out.

Lifestyle: Life Lately In London 2

London Fashion Week London Eye London Rough Runner

Hi everyone, how was your weekend? Did you have some time to relax and enjoy the magnificent weather? I did and I feel this has been one of my busiest weekends I had so far in London. But let’s start at the beginning.

Saturday


The morning was spent at the Rough Runner event held in Clapham Common. Our friends from Wolverhampton came down to join Alex for the 5k obstacle run in the park. Due to health reasons, I couldn’t run with them, but I still felt part of the experience as I volunteered to be their photographer. I would wait at every obstacle and then cheer and motivate them whilst taking some snaps on my Nikon. This way, I felt still involved in the action and excitement. It was also a lot of fun watching Alex struggling with the obstacles whereas our friend Pete, who is a personal fitness trainer, effortlessly managed every challenge. #cheekysmile

Fashion: Street Art Meets Black Chic

Street Art Bankside London Fashion
Karen and I attended last week's Blogger Fashion Week (BLFW) organised by Danielle from the Bloggers Hangout. The venue was a lovely loft at the OXO tower overlooking the Thames. We meet fellow bloggers and chatted to amazing brands. I really enjoyed the event as the venue was perfect and attendances were asked to dress to the code: Black Chic.

Lifestyle: The Dismaland Disaster

Dismaland

Hi everyone, ever since the news about Banksy’s Dismaland went viral on social media, I wanted to go. Not only am I a big fan of art, but visiting an anti-version of Disneyland, with an arty and society criticising twist excited me for weeks. After a long, draining and nerve-wracking chase for the tickets, my visit happened today and I can’t tell you how upset, angry and disappointed I am. I do mean it honestly and not in the literal sense how the place likes to market itself as being the most depressing place on earth.

Lifestyle: Blogging Events - Are They Worth It?

Blogging events - are they worth it
Hi ladies, what a week it has been! I’ve been to 8 blogging events within less than six days. Yes - 8! You may ask yourself how I managed, and more importantly, why would I do that. Before I updated my blog’s profile to ‘London-based’, opportunities to attend events were rare. It has all changed now and the invitations came flying in. I wanted to make the most out of an experience which I usually don't have. That's why I went extreme and attended one networking event after another. What is it like to go to a press conference? Who will I meet at a blogger party? Is it worth meeting up with a PR agency? 

My week has been super crazy. It was busy, it was fun, it was tiring, it was simply fantastic and I don’t regret a single moment of my marathon. My little crash course in blogging and networking events has been an experience which I’d like to share with you.

Fashion: Boho Autumn Style

autumn boho fashion
Hi ladies, how are you? With the closure of the Magnum store this Sunday, summer officially comes to end. I can’t believe how dry and sunny the weather has been here in London with a warm, crystal clear air. Autumn is here and it’s going to be nicer than the non-existent British summer.

When I say autumn, I can’t deny how excited I am for days to come that require cosy knitwear and layers. Like last year, ponchos and blanket wraps will be my go-to fashion item in 2015 and I had the chance to wear it already. Though my woolly capes have to wait until chilly October, I used this very light version from George at ASDA* for today’s ootd.

Lifestyle: I'm Turning Pro Brush Kit By L.A.B. 2

I'm Turning Pro brush kit Lab2Beauty

Hi ladies, how are you? I'm very excited to share with you the latest addition to my make-up bag. I was recently sent the stunning I'm Turning Pro L.A.B. 2 brush kit* which aims to address beauty professionals and beginners alike. 

When it comes to beauty I'm a total greeny. Somehow I missed that period in my teens when you hang out with your best girly friends and get all excited about the latest products. I got more into beauty in my mid-twenties, still a massive gap to fill and no bestie around to give me some lessons. So my basic knowledge is mostly based on blogger tutorials. Thanks, internet!

Luckily there are make-up brands out there who take people like me with little beauty knowledge into consideration when they design a new product. It goes without saying that I got super excited when the L.A.B. 2 I'm Turning Pro Kit landed on my desk.

Fashion: Summer In The City. Dresden OOTD

Hippie Chic leather watch

It's summertime! It may rain and be cold in the UK, but summer hasn't stopped at home in Germany. Since the end of May, the weather has been phenomenal. We had lots of sunshine and barely any temperatures falling down the 25-degree mark. Just the way I like it! I went home for an extended bank holiday weekend to spend the time with my parents. During my stay, I did some sightseeing in Berlin and Dresden.

Dresden is the capital of the county Saxony and also known as the 'Florence by the river Elbe'. This is because of its historic scenery which includes the Frauenkirche, Dresden castle and Opera House. The Zwinger, a baroque unit that hosts the antique treasures of Saxonian emperors and kings, has a beautiful garden. It was here where I sat down by the fountains and enjoyed a hot summer's day.

Fashion: Sky Garden OOTD

Sky Garden OOTD Fashion Post
Hi ladies, how are you? I revisited Sky Garden in Fenchurch Street and this time the weather couldn’t have been more perfect. Together with my friend Izas we enjoyed the warm and sunny afternoon on the viewing platform and also used the opportunity for a quick outfit shoot. Hope you’ll enjoy.
