You can always copy something if you really love it. 3. Gather quotes and meet Jewellers This sounds easy, but it's not straight forward if you are designing your own ring. If you manage to buy something in a store, then brilliant! But you could probably have saved 50% buying it wholesale....

I can't actually remember the last time I wore heels to work (no one in my team wears them either and we are all short), and even though I long to be one of "those girls" who can wear high heels all day long and look fabulous for it, I just can't do it. Tell me, are you team 'flats' or...

But my opinion of the brand started to change after seeing it featured by fashion bloggers (mainly Scandinavian) who loved the brand for it's wardrobe staples. Considering my wardrobe was missing most of these staples, it's little wonder that I didn't know the joy of COS. This year, I have...

Back in October I was invited to be photographed as part of British photographer, Sam Pelly's exhibition on the people of Notting Hill. The exhibition is due to launch at his studio in Notting Hill in February 2011 and features people from all walks of life - from the wealthy to homeless...

Light Weight Creme de Corps: The light weight version of Creme de Corps, I really loved this. It's quite expensive but I would buy it again as it soaks into my skin and doesn't leave a frangrance (no clashing with your perfume). I don't like heavy body moisturisers as I live in opaque tights...

The trees don't change colour unless you visit specific areas that have deciduous trees - and certainly not where I grew up surrounded by national forest. Over the past four years, autumn has become my favourite season in England partly due to the novelty factor. I love watching the trees...

The trainers at their Notting Hill studio are flawless - I like them all! They're not your typical trainers, and show a genuine interest in each member of their class. They're also the type of trainers who have degrees in Sports Science (and charisma to boot)...not a certificate from some...

Mr Porter is my long-suffering boyfriend also happens to be my Notting Hill Girl photographer (not by choice I might add). I wish I could take a 'behind the scenes' because normally it involves an argument (or two) on the streets of Notting Hill because neither of us really know how to use...
