It's the only show I look forward to at London Fashion Week, to the point that I do that annoying thing of talking really fast and generally flapping about in excitement before and during. I'm an Orla Kiely fangirl through and through. I embarrassingly hovered around next to the lady herself...

Going to the cinema together at the weekend is our favourite pastime – I'm always medium popcorn and he is always large, preferably accompanied by a peach flavour ice tea (unfortunately that's usually only in Portugal!). This time around we went to see Horrible Bosses, which was pretty funny....

That being said, there are some very pretty things indeed so it's worth a peek! I've put up some practically new items that I just didn't wear enough, or didn't fit anymore, including some pretty dresses, a Luella top, Family Affairs shorts and the amazing Dear Creatures dress above. Ahh!...

The busyness continues over the weekend too, as I'm helping Miguel shoot a short film set in 40s London – I'll try and get a few snaps to show you! Anyway, onto the pictures. I'm a complete sucker for the colours that are all over the high street at the moment – the Autumnal mustards,...

That certainly doesn't stop me buying them though – if I spot a dress that has a unique collar..or perhaps a cat on it..then it must be mine. I've long adored unique pieces, opting to spend that little bit more on a frock from an independent designer, or altering a vintage piece to just the...

And after living in London for the past couple of years, I couldn't help but think that if I brought any of my friends along, they'd find it rather odd – all the "ohh-arr"ing and cider drinking. Still, I suppose each county must have it's own, slightly embarrassing (but loveable all the...

I was 15, he was 16, and we bonded over Photoshop and our other geeky tendencies. I don't tend to mention him too often on here aside from that he takes a lot of the pictures of me, but he's the best friend that I could ever ask for, and I'd like to thank him so much for all the help he gives...

doesn't time fly? Now, I remember when I started the blog there were certain conventional posts that popped up everywhere, and "What's in My Bag" was definitely one of them – how many of you have one of these posts in your archives?! I see you nodding! I posted my first over two years ago (I...

The 70s a-line shape made me feel a bit short, especially as I pictured wearing it casually with a cropped tee, so on a whim I cut off several inches *gulp* and it came out okay, thank goodness! With the leftover suede I made up a few bows – they remind me of the ones they sell in American...

" Sometimes I get annoyed with how predictable my penchant for super girly styling is – come on Carrie, another hazy photoshoot you love with pretty girls in pretty dresses posing in tall grass? Yup, guilty. I suppose when you find a style that suits you it seems sensible to stick with it,...
