Eagle-eyed readers (or totally blind and dim even) will know
I work for high street retailer Warehouse, ensconced in their Shoreditch head
office. As such I am always among the first to know about the exciting campaigns and marketing projects for Warehouse.
This year’s SS14 campaign is SUPER EXCITING! Really. It’s
called Fashion Shooters and it’s all about empowering young women to get behind
the lens, pick up those cameras and become the next generation of female
Pretty refreshing, in a world that’s all about how you look
in front of the camera and how many likes your selfie gets; learning about the
art of photography seems so appealing in comparison.
Supermodel (and fellow half-Dane) Helena Christensen was selected
for her expertise on both sides of the lens to shoot the first 12 images of the
fashion shooters campaign. And the 13th shot? That’s up to YOU!
Maybe not YOU, but a selected few lucky customers will get the opportunity to
shoot the 13th shot, mentored by Helena.
The best bit about Fashion Shooters, though, is the FASHION
SHOOTERS FESTIVAL. A day of fashion, photography, food, drink and music in
association with fashion heavyweights Elle Magazine.
Soooo – as you can imagine, we’ve all been waaaaaaay beyond
busy in Warehouse HQ! If you want to see the fruits of our labours, attend the
festival and/or enter the competition to shoot with Helena Christensen then
How amazing does Georgia Maylook in the new Thomas Sabo campaign? I love the new direction they’re going
in, especially the new selection of ‘Karma’ beads (who remembers those?).
The new Thomas Sabo KarmaCollection features 72 jewellery beads representing positive energy, joie de
vivre and fortune. The collection also features two new 925 sterling silver
bracelets and a necklace to hold the beads. Meaning you can mix and match to
suit your personality; great!
The weather has totally taken a turn for the better... I'm outside again! Whoop. I've had a really mad couple of weeks and been super busy so I'll keep this brief as I need to do a shed-load of 'life admin'. I'll tell you all about the Bafta Parties, Hunger launch and the Elle Style Awards (!) where I was reporting from the red carpet. Seamlessly, I leave you with me in my very RED suit*. X
Feb 14th saw lots of fashiony love in the air (Valentine's day got totally overshadowed) with London Fashion Week AW14 beginning.
Now, I love hanging out down at Somerset House as much as the next fashionista. It's the central hub of LFW; a place to see and be seen and an absolutely stunning venue steeped in history Tragically, this beautiful listed venue had cobbles. Lots of ankle-breaking cobbles.
Having tried in the past to manoeuvre them in heels unsuccessfully in the past, I've realise that no matter what you're wearing, the impact is somewhat lost if you're walking like a new-born giraffe.
So I'm THAT GIRL who always has super comfy shoes in her bag. Ugg boots are the undisputed kings of comfort and there is nothing tat will put a smile on your face like slipping a throbbing foot into its soft sheepskin interior. Bliss.
Luckily for me, they're also having a bit of a fashion resurgence with celebs such as Bip Ling and Suki Waterhouse favouring the mini style you see above.
