Why go out when you can make the perfect hangout at home? Ok, that's a lie, a big one for that matter. By no means am I encouraging my readers to stay in all day/every day. Go on, get yourself out there, it's totally good for you.

However, on the occasion when you do feel like being housebound, adding some T.L.C into your own space will work in your favour. Nights in solo will be worth their while or even better, people will be coming over to your place in no time. Conclusion: good decor is guest friendly? Scented candles by Le Labo (new favourite) and Diptyque (classic) are always a winner and my personal advice to you is to pimp out your bed.  Add throws, blankets, pillows and make sure there is lots of it. Go all out and go all the way.

The search started around two years ago. The search for a Calvin Klein Jeans logo t-shirt. Simple, understated and completely effortless which is exactly why I like it. A throwback to the rawness of the nineties (see above, or any other Calvin Klein advert featuring a young Miss Moss) minus the chokers, buns, scrunchies and what have you not. A t-shirt like this sounds like it would be easy to come by but you got it, it wasn't. Not that long ago, a friend and I were sat on the underground and spotted an elderly Asian tourist wearing one. I gave my friend a quick nudge to question where this woman may have got her hands on one because I certainly couldn't.

Thankfully, this quite recently has changed. Incase you already didn't know, Calvin Klein Jeans have released a capsule collection sold exclusively on Mytheresa. The collection includes different versions of the iconic top; grey and white, hooded or cropped.

Style doesn't always necessarily relate to just what you wear. It can transcend into different aspects of design which probably explains why I am somebody who is quite into my spaces and homes. Take a look at Erin Wasson and her home. When it comes to decorating the indoors, less can definitely be more. White walls and wooden floors gives you a blank canvas to work with so you can add in whatever personal knick knacks you own. Rugs, antlers and frames being some of my faves.

Heels- Zara

My working environment is a particularly nice place where shoes are enjoyed. This can make fighting the temptation to purchase yet another pair of shoes (see most of my blog?) slightly challenging. After all, you wouldn't want to let a good outfit down with a dodgy choice in footwear now would you?

There is a lot of fun to be had in London and as much as I love living here, when a bank holiday weekend lies ahead of you, I think it's fair to say it's healthy to escape this metropolis every now and then. As a matter of fact, you would be surprised what the British Coast can offer (see above.) I was offered an extended invitation for a trip down to Plymouth which is just one train ride away via London Paddington. If you really want to have some fun join a friend who owns a boat (or if you don't, rent a boat), zip around the sea and try a water sport of your choice. Initially, the water might give you a slight chill but that's nothing a wetsuit won't fix. I'm not going to lie, wearing a wetsuit kind of made me feel like a Charlie's angel - and that is a good thing. And hey, if you are really feeling wild you can even have a shot at fishing. Whether it floats your boat or not, it sure is something you can't do in the city.

For starters, I didn't for see myself becoming a 'repost it' kind of gal. Maybe Dylan Rieder was the gateway and it's more than likely that you've seen this editorial before. Recently, I have been left in charge of decorating the pin board in the fashion cupboard at my work. Spending a significant amount of time in there, this has become quite a nice new edition to the room. Everything Tyrone Lebon photographs turns into gold. Pairing up with Vogue's Fashion Editor Francesca Burns in Los Angeles and these images hit the fashion jackpot. You probably don't need a reminder telling you that these images were first up on my pin list. Want to catch a behind-the-scenes-vid? It's just one click away. And FYI after watching I am seriously craving early hour pool diving.
