IF YOU'RE EVER IN ZURICH...

Henrici cafe in Niederdorf Zurich

If you're ever in Zurich you must do two things. #1: Tweet at me so we can hang out. #2: Skip over to Henricis in Niederdorf for a caffeine injection. Cafe Henrici is my favourite - they have the best coffee around and the most amazing frappes ever. Frappes are like frappuccinos only without all the sugar and added flavours. They are heavenly and you'll be addicted to them after your first sip. Trust.

After you're done, wander through Niederdorf and down to the lake. While there you can dangle your feet above the water and tempt fate by seeing how close you can get your toes to the swans.

We spent a day in St Paul de Vence wandering around the old cobblestoned pathways when I was in France last week. It's a gorgeous medieval town and is definitely worth a visit if you ever happen to find yourself in southeastern France with nothing to do for a day. I wore this new little red dress from River Island. I love the simple shape and little floral details . Worn with old battered Converse it feels a little grungy, which I like.

Blogging on the-go for Company Magazine

A couple of months ago I took some photos for a feature in Company magazine. The article was about where you blog from and my position was blogging on the go. Since I travel quite a lot it's super important to be mobile. I was featured alongside Isabelle, Charlie and Ivania. Along with the photos I also answered a few questions for the article:

Tell us a bit about yourself: I'm a digital and fashion consultant. I live in Zurich but work mostly in London. I started The Style Crusader almost three years ago- it started out as just a bit of fun but quickly turned into something I loved. I blog about all my adventures - from fashion week to coffee dates.

What are your essential blogging companions? My camera and laptop. I use a Canon 550D and a MacBook Air; both are perfect because their super convenient when traveling.

Explain a little about your space: My space is pretty minimal - I don't like having lots of clutter around me.

What makes your location good for blogging? My location changes constantly. I travel a lot for work, which means I always have new locations to capture and I find them all really inspiring.

Why do you blog on the go? I'm constantly on the move so have t blog from random places - trains, stations, cafes, hotels rooms. I blog from wherever I happen to be.

Name three things you can't blog without: Photoshop, coffee and an idea.

Recent inspirations? I'm addicted to Pinterest and Tumblr. I also find daily life pretty inspirational - there's beauty everywhere, you just have to slow down to see it.

Three tracks you're blogging to: Meet Me Halfway by the Futureheads, Ayo Technology by Milow and Doo Wop by Lauryn Hill.

HI FROM BERLIN...

I've just spent the entire day walking around Berlin with the lovely people behind cashmere brand Muriee. We're here in Germany shooting the look book and doing street style photography for their autumn/winter campaign. It's absolutely freezing and the whole city looks incredibly autumnal with red and yellow leaves covering the streets.

I hope wherever you are you're having a beautiful weekend. xx

ARMY GREEN FROM TBA...

I'm currently completely obsessed with this coat from TBA. It's a boxy fit with contrasting leather panels, which I love. It also has shearling around the neck which gives it an even cosier feel. Lately I've been wearing it with mens knitwear underneath and skinny jeans.

Wearing: TBA Petra coat, Jaeger jumper, 7 for all Mankind jeans, Converse and American Apparel bag.

SUNDAYS WERE MADE FOR FLOWER MARKETS...

I love being in London on a Sunday.

Whenever I am I make sure to hop over to Columbia Road for the flower market. It has the absolute best atmosphere and the most insanely priced flowers I've ever seen. If I lived in London I'd be filling my flat with them every week. Hope you're having a wonderful weekend. xx

Wearing: American Apparel tri-blend tank top, Whistles skirt, Converse and Dolce & Gabbana sunglasses.

THE VIEW FROM STOCKHOLM...

Sweden is unbelievably quiet and relaxed.

I spent the weekend in Stockholm at the Rival Hotel and it was absolutely gorgeous. It's located just next to a park and has a delicious cafe and flower shop outside. I spent most of the time eating candy and wandering into shops. Not a bad way to spend a holiday.

ON STRUGGLING TO FIND INSPIRATION...

Please tell me I'm not the only one that feels in a bit of a funk.

Normally I have no lack of inspiration. In fact, the problem I face is that I'm inspired by too much. There is beauty everywhere - even in the most unlikely of places. Online there is inspiration catapulting around at a million miles a second. I think what I'm suffering from is over saturation.

Lately I don't want to be online. I'm sort of disenchanted with looking at blogs and scrolling through Pinterest. I want to sit outside with a beautiful magazine and flick through the pages with my fingers. I want to sit with people in real life and talk to them in person rather than on Twitter. I want to bake cookies. I want to be in the sun. I don't want to click and I don't want to re-pin. I don't want to sit in front of a computer screen. I want to devour a magazine, rip out the pages and tape them into a notebook. So that's what I've been doing...

This nostalgia is spreading like wildfire into all aspects of my life. I suddenly want to get a sewing machine so that I can make Jil Sander inspired clutch bags. I also want to get my hands on some old school looking running shoes. This pair by Converse are mega adorable. Anything with a late '80s/early '90s vibe is working for me right now... bring on the Spice Girls and resurrect the pog.
