Lying in my bed on the eve of 2013, I’m scrolling through a years worth of blog posts. Nostalgia is setting in. Pass the tissues. Highlights definitely include fashion week and twirling in the teacups at EuroDisney with Shini. A trip to Jamaica also ranks high on the best moments from the year. My favourite post I did this past year has got to be ‘A letter to my fellow bloggers’, wherein I write a letter addressing the misconceptions and lies that surround being a blogger. I loved reading everyone’s comments and thoughts in response to the post. Thanks so much for sticking with me through 2012. I can’t wait to see what’s in store for the year ahead.
Happy New Year. Here’s to it being a great one. *clinks glass*
With the weather turning slightly more chilly I’ve started pulling out the thick knits. I love this yellow fluffy jumper by Acne. The only problem? It sheds fluorescent fuzz onto everything and everyone that makes contact with it. I still love it though.

Do you remember the Topshop Unique show? It was awesome.
I’ve been obsessed with it ever since February. As you know, I’m trying to invest in quality functional wardrobe pieces. Like most people I (sadly) don’t have a bottomless budget. I like shopping from high street stores when I can find good pieces. This is why the Topshop show rocked my world so much this past season. The collection was freaky-naughty and stuffed full of pieces I’d love to have in my wardrobe.
Imagine my absolute over-the-moon insane excitement then when I caught wind of the fact that the collection is hitting store next week. Yes, next week. The team were kind enough to send this top over to me in Zurich to try out. Yes, it is amazing. I loved it from the moment I pulled the silky slouchy oversized little number out of its cardboard box. I rubbed it against my cheek and whispered, ‘you and me were born to be together.’ Okay. I didn’t actually do that. This is what you really need to know though: the Topshop Uniqe AW12 collection is hitting stores on Monday. This top will retail for £75 and if you want to be my twinsie you will get yourself one. I’ve already requested to have one put on hold because (sadly) the one I’m wearing has to be returned and, double-sady, there is no Topshop in Zurich.
p.s. I wore it into town the other day to check out all the sales… I perved big time on Trois Pommes and their Celine collection. #Drool
Fashion is a strange thing.
Brown leather. White linen cropped top. Bell bottom jeans. If you asked me a month ago, I’d laugh in your face at the mere mention of these items. Surely they are outdated and totally uncool. Well, wide legs have started creeping into my life. It’s scary but I’ve started having the desire to swap out my skinnies for trousers with a looser fit. Uh-oh. The tectonic plates of fashion are shifting… and I’m mildly scared. Errr… anyway. I love this white linen top. It has an elasticated waist and sits right at my belly button. Yeah, technically it’s belly baring but if you wear it with something high-waisted it looks like an ordinary top. I like. I’m still uncertain how I feel about baring my belly… it just doesn’t seem very lady like.
p.s. I’m mega addicted to my little collection of Tank Books. They are adora-bable and are operating as my go-to accessory… until I get a puppy.
Wearing: Paul & Joe Sister jacket, Koto Bolofo white linen top from Anthropologie, J Brand jeans, Moheda Toffeln clogs, Bottletop Luciana bag, Tank books Kafka edition and random friendship bracelet found at a market.

Please can we arrange for me to live inside a flower market?
There is nothing I love more than being in London on a sunny Sunday. Why? Because I love Columbia Road Flower Market (so much). When I was last in town I spent an unusually warm day lazing about the market. It was so crowded but I loved every minute. I wore a double printed look from Aubin & Wills which I love. It’s super soft and silky. Perfect for feeling easy and breezy but looking a bit put together.
p.s. yes, posing with a potted flower plant was essential (although highly cliche).
