Happy HUMP DAY beautiful people!! This hump day marks the return of the London Girl!! Whoooo! I have to say writing this post is AMAZEBALLS, as I love my London Girls and personally really enjoy reading what they have written. Hope you are all having a fabulous day in London and wherever else in the world you are reading this from.
So last night when I was thinking who will mark the return of the London Girl I thought it would be this particular person since I only saw them on Saturday. Then I got thinking what on earth will I write about them since I know them via a friend. Well I would say this London Girl very much reminds me of Jessica Alba, the girl next door who is easy going, fun relaxed, up for a laugh and has her head screwed on.
I’d call MI5 and get them to brief me on all the big secrets! After that I would put laws into place to stop the ridiculous wealth divide we have – how can we have footballers (who are a waste of space most of the time) earning so much more than nurses, policemen and firemen?
How would you describe your style?
Quite girly and conservative but (hopefully!) stylish too! That’s what I am aiming for anyway…
Are you a designer or high street girl?
Have you had any fashion splurges or bargain finds?
My biggest splurge was my Marc Jacobs handbag – I love that bag!
What is your favourite clothes shop?
What is the romantic thing someone has done for you?
Probably driving 200 miles after work to take me out for dinner and then going straight back again for work the next day
What’s your favourite part of London?
I love Borough market! Apart from that I like being anywhere which is close to the river and which has green spaces, so Putney and Fulham are perfect for me!
Where or what would you recommend for a first date?
I like the idea of Sunday lunch in a cosy pub somewhere….maybe there would be some board games thrown into the equation too!
Where do you go to let loose with your girls?
Fez club! I love that place!
Where have you recently gone on holiday to escape the big smoke of London?
Just back from skiing in France, I love getting out on the slopes every year as it is so peaceful! That is until the après ski begins….
What’s your life philosophy?
Not really a philosophy but I like the saying ‘If you can keep your head when all around you have lost theirs, then you probably haven’t understood the seriousness of the situation’
Hope you all have a fabulous day and thank you v. much to this week’s London Girl.

In life you have to dance to your own beat and make life choices that suit your here and now. It is so easy to get swept up in what everyone else is doing and their life choices but it’s far better to follow your own path and do as your heart desires. After all you only you live with the emotions of your decision so always remember folks dance to your own beat.
Have a fabulous sunny Tuesday everyone.
Live, love and learn
Ola beautiful people.
The sun is well and truly shining on my beloved London and I am loving it!
For those of you who read my crazy, random tweet feeds, you would have seen earlier on today I tweeted ‘We all have wings, we just need to learn to fly with them’. This is officially my motto for the month of May which starts tomorrow.
I think in life we are all gifted with wings to take us on amazing adventures and journeys it is just a case of learning how to fly to get to our chosen destination. Sometimes fear or not knowing where we are going prevents us from making that journey, but sometimes it is the doubt that we don’t have the wings in the first place to make the journey that holds us back. I have
sometimes often lost or forgotten I have wings along life’s pathway. This happens most often when I have stumbled, fallen and crawled through my journey. But then when the chips are really down I have looked to the side and remembered my wings and started to flap away until I am flying again. So whenever your life chips are down just remember you do have wings, you just need to learn/ remember how to fly with them.
Ps Make sure you check in on me tomorrow’s hump day Diarise It post to get the lowdown on a London Bar that puts the V back in Va Va Voom.

So I am back again in my colour of this year- RED! I love it. I think I will definitely be overdosing the year in it. I started 2013 in red and intend to dance the year through in it.
TGIF- I am so so pleased the weeeekennnd is here at last. Even though it is super freezing in London this weekend I am so going to make the most of it, got lots diarised, which I am sure I will be sharing with you next week.

Happy hump day everyone!! I have lost count of how many hump days we have had this year so far, but I cannot believe it is nearly the end of Feb! Insane! So I am super excited for the downhill climb this week, as I am looking forward to spending time with one of my closet BFFs on Saturday and having a Sunday pottering session with the BF and some friends.
So hump day means one thing LONDON GIRL. I met this week’s London Girl in 2008 in Law School as we were in the same class. She is a really kind, amazingly dedicated, attractive woman. I have not ever told her this but she actually reminds me of Rachel Weisz. Hope you enjoy this weeks interview.
Happy Valentine’s day all. Whether you ae single or coupled I hope you all have a fabulous day whatever your plans are.
So for those of you who follow my random tweets, you will know that I have labelled the month of February #Lovefebruary (no prizes for been a creative genius). So in the spirit of #lovefebruay I thought I would capture from my London Girl’s what is the most romantic thing someone has done for them.
Seems there ae lots of Mr Romantics out there who are romantic all year round.
Well I went to look for my wedding dress; it was the first day I had taken the plunge to go shopping for what is probably one of the most important outfits a girl can buy. My fiancé knew how nervous I was about this, so before I went he made me a Wedding Dress Shopping Survival Kit, which included one red rose, one box of tissues, 2 packets of sweets and a beautiful card, which read “Can’t wait to Marry You” Made my day even more special.
Well I have to say my other half’s no Romeo… does allowing you the remote control count?! But without sombering the mood – him walking out of work to be with me when my Mum died, as they were not allowing him the time off and him in turn receiving a disciplinary is something I will never forget.
… I guess I could list some really clichéd shit here. Don’t get me wrong, I can fantasize about grand gestures my prince charming could do for me as much as the next girl, but I actually think the everyday, ordinary gestures can sometimes feel the most romantic. Having someone listen to you, treat you well by respecting you and loving you for who you are, both the good and bad. That in its purest form has been some of the most romantic instances thus far for me.
Well on my 2nd date with my now Fiancé, he took me away on a private plane ( I actually kid you not!) to a race meeting in France. – I left my jacket In one of the marquees (when I say “my” I mean my sisters Ralph Lauren horse coat which I slyly borrowed) he went to retrieve it and was gone for ages. Later on in the relationship he admitted to roping to waiters in to help him find it otherwise he’d kick off! Bless!
After recently buying our first home my boyfriend flew us off to Budapest to say thank you for me organising everything as he was working a lot throughout the stressful 4 months it took. We stayed at the Sofitel Hotel opposite the Chain Bridge. It is somewhere I would never have thought of visiting but it was amazing and the hotel Spa was just as fantastic!
My ex boyfriend was really hung over, so decided to take me shopping in Chelsea. He bought me a couple of things in Karen Millen to make up for his hangover.
My relationships have always been very passionate with many romantic gestures being made by all involved. whilst I would say that I have more stories than most about secret liaisons, being swept off my feet and boyfriends turning up in the middle of the night simply to declare undying love for me, I have to say the nicest thing someone has done for me is simply to really care about me, putting me first in everything they do. It doesn’t cost anything but is a hard thing to find in someone.
Being taken for dinner eating a japanese taster menu on christmas eve with the fountains and music playing at burj khalifa in dubai and being proposed to! Japense was our first date and he talked about life before us, the future and the dreams the entire night and then popped the question!!!!
Being whisked away to Brazil for Christmas and New Year. Watching the fireworks on Copacabana was unforgettable! (and slightly terrifying all at the same time- it’s a little disconcerting to be in a sea of 2 million people all on one beach)
Firstly I’d like to say it’s the little things that really mean a lot to me!! Of course they could write a song and look lovingly into my eyes as they sing it to me on a beach in the Caribbean!! Notably, an ex boyfriend saw the whole idea of sending cards and writing cards as pointless. He never really did it and didn’t expect them in return; whereas I’m completely opposite and like receiving and writing cards for my loved ones. So it surprised me then that for my Birthday and Christmas he sent me a card, and wrote very sweet and personal messages about how he felt about me inside them. This made me feel very treasured!
Live, love and learn always.
