New Start

Someone mentioned my blog to me today and at first I started to think... 'What blog? I don't have a blog!'

Then I suddenly remembered, I haven't posted here for over a year and think nows the time to get started again. I'm not setting out to dominate the blogging world, I'll be happy for even just one person somewhere in the world to have a little read.

I'm going to talk about the things that interest me, from books, tv and film to fashion, shopping and travelling to music and all sorts of other things.

I will be back soon with my first REAL post!

The Search Is On...

... to find my wedding song.

This is without a doubt one of the hardest decisions I've so far in my life been faced with. I don't want any of the typical cheesy love songs that are endlessly played at weddings but something unique yet still having a special feeling to it.

We've had ideas but nothing that sticks. He wants and thinks we are using an Alicia Keys song but to be perfectly honest, she is being so overplayed at the moment that she is driving me crazy and that is not how I want to feel at my wedding.

So for now I have no song but I will keep you posted... Any ideas are welcome!

Goodbye New York, Hello London

London Fashion Week was opened last night with Naomi Campbell's Fashion For Relief, (which I'll talk about later) and I am really excited about seeing what certain designers have in their new collections. In particular I am looking forward to Twenty8Twelve, Vivienne Westwood's Red Label, Mulberry and Burberry Prorsum. I always love their collections so cannot wait to see what is new.

Then bring on Paris Fashion Week where some of my true favourite designers will be showcased including John Galliano, Stella McCartney, Alexander McQueen and Elie Saab. I cannot wait.

So... here are some highlights from New York. I'd be here forever if I named everything I like but I particularly like the collections by Ralph Lauren and Badgley Mischka. I was also quite pleasantly surprised by The Row (The Olsen Twins line).

^ ^ ^

Two designs from the same designer and from the same show and yet they couldn't be more different. This is why Badgeley Mischka immediately caught my eye, I love designers who can create such a variety of looks in one collection. The dress I can instantly imagine appearing on a Red Carpet at some stage in the near future.

^ ^ ^

What I love about Ralph Lauren's new collection is that it is different from anything I've seen from him. He has a bohemian feel about it mixed with a hint of romanticism. I love the layered look he's created and the use of different materials.

^ ^ ^

To be honest I've never really liked Mary Kate and Ashley but then again I can't fault their sense in fashion. Yes I know they have made huge mistakes more than most but when they put their minds to it, it can be great.

I really loved their designs for their label The Row. I loved the simplicity of them and yet they managed to maintain a certain edge to them.

Song of the Moment

My absolute favourite song right now is Lemar's The Way Love Goes. He is back on full form and I reckon it could well be one of his best to date. The song is so catchy and his voice just sounds so amazing

I can't believe he is releasing a greatest hits album already though, I hope this doesn't mean the end of him.
