Every year Innocent smoothies hold the Big Knit where they pop little wooly hats on their bottles to raise money to help keep old people warm in winter. So far they’ve raised over a million pounds for Age UK. This year they asked me if I’d design a hat to go on one of the bottles and I jumped at the opportunity. I made a little bear with a mustache and a read bandana over it’s eyes. The hats hit shelves in stores next Wednesday so if you see one be sure to snatch it up. 25p from each bottle sold go directly to Age UK.
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.
I love this season’s Asos Africa collection. The bold prints, grey marled tops and slouchy shapes are straight up my street. The black and white houndstooth outfit is my absolute favourite. I love the peplum shaped jacket and the flared out shorts.
The collection has definitely got me craving a bit of an Asos shopping spree.
I’m sitting in a cafe in Zurich watching the rain come pelting down. It’s cold and winter is clearly on its way. Despite the frosty weather I’ve been thinking back to the trip I took to Jamaica a couple of months ago. I couldn’t resist reliving it through this post. I had such an incredible time – lying on the beach all day reading books and drinking strawberry daiquiris. It was absolute perfection.
This time last week I was in Berlin shooting the look book for German based cashmere brand Muriee. We had loads of fun, ate tons of cookies and spent one day walking around the city taking street style type photos. This is my favourite outfit that I wore on the day. Just a simple outfit with wide legged jeans and a super cuddly tan coloured cashmere jumper. The best part of the look though was the pink beanie that had cute little ears. I love the idea of taking something as classic as a cashmere hat and making it youthful and fun.
