Hi guys, it’s finally Friday, it took us a while but we got here in the end. I’m opening this post with a picture I took on Monday before absolutely throwing myself onto a mountain of work (which I still have loads to do) and ending it with a cute Friday night dress and the quite possibly, sassiest phone case you will ever be able to get your hands on.
I’ve been all over the shop these last two weeks, back and forth from London doing various things which you will soon be able to see here on the blog. It’s always so crazy before fashion week, honestly I feel like all year it’s quiet and then the months leading up to fashion week, BAM all the press shows, all the campaigns, all the networking events and product launches come at once.
When I feel overwhelmed by things as well, everything comes to a holt.
I just lose my focus. Currently Love Island is on which doesn’t help at all, I was in London for a while so when I came back, oh my god, I just binged watched 5 episodes even though I had heaps and heaps of work to do.
Sorry international readers, but Kem coming in with Chyna? that is MUGGY!
Anyway, I am trying to get my fitness back on track (again, this may or may not also have something to do with Love Island) so this weekend I am going to hit the gym. I’ve got my whey protein, my IBCAA+ and other things which I hope are going to work miracles. If they don’t then I’m just going to have to get a refund because I definitely ordered ‘slim’ at the counter, not ‘mum-tum’ and ‘second chin’.
On a happy Friday end note, I have a discount code at the moment for Coconut Lane so if you like anything in these two pictures then you can use my code “labelsandlondon20′ for 20% off. That includes my phone case, my sunglasses also worn by Amber on Love Island and the notebook.
Last week I lost my 50 shades of Grey virginity and watched it for the very first time (I know, where have I been) and on the same week I gave that sexy London spot 23 Paul Street a visit.
The place oozes with sophistication and sexiness from its low lighting to its tasteful decor. It’s the type of house that I’m convinced is where high powered, living, breathing, existing Christian Grey’s in the city come out to play.
It is there where I met USA sex expert Megwyn Whyte who gave a small group of us a presentation and picked our brains on why sexual health is so important.
The most interesting fact I remember is that it can actually help introduce a wider variety of face expressions as you communicate. Of course, there’s also lowered blood pressure and stress reduction (you know, if you need an additional reason).
It was the launch party of Satisfyer who have finally landed here in the UK following a successful number of years in the states.
Truthfully, I’ve never been a fan of sex toys. In my opinion, they over focus on creating kitschy products that resemble a male sexual organ and less on its purpose. And if you have a partner and he has the real Mccoy then it’s pretty redundant.
And what if you like girls? Why would you buy something that you’re quite possibly repulsed by?
This New York based company are pleasantly and surprisingly none of those things and focus their brand around health and wellness. Satisfyer have not let all the gimmick that comes along with the sex industry cloud their objective and set out to simply produce products that correlate with the female anatomy.
The Satisfyer Pro, their bestseller is practically contactless and requires no batteries and no physical insertion whatsoever. Yup, an innovative step away from 60’s kitsch that will not intimidate or emasculate your partner.
But don’t just take my word for it, check out their reviews in Elle, Cosmopolitan, Women’s Health and Glamour Magazine here on their page. www.satisfyer.com
Don’t you just hate the office dress code smart/casual? What even is that?
I can wear jeans but a hoody is pushing it? I can wear jeans and a suit jacket? I should wear a pencil skirt with trainers?
If you’re not sure take a peek at what other employees are wearing when you arrive for your interview.
If in doubt, go for a straight leg jean. Why? Because the cut still resembles a standard pair of office trousers. Pair it with a plain logo-free top and voila smart/casual nailed down. But (and this is a tougher than it sounds) what should you wear on your feet?
Trainers are fine on a weekend but are too casual for a day at the office.
Stilettos are an overkill, unless it’s cocktail hour/a staff party I would leave those babies at home.
Also, have you ever tried a round toe shoe with straight leg jeans? Try it… They look like grandma’s ‘Hush Puppies’ right?
You want to be taken seriously, like you take pride in your appearance but not seriously enough for it to take priority over your role.
Enter pointy mules.
Straight leg jeans look neat with a slim point peaking underneath because the hem of your jeans will hang just above it rather than sit and slouch on your shoe.
Choose one with a kitten heal, it’s understated, comfortable enough to carry out day-to-day tasks and will lift the end of your jeans slightly off the ground to elongate your legs.
Both of the shoes featured here can be obtained below.
I’ve been seeing these novelty watermelon accessories everywhere lately guys. Watermelon handbags, lilos, pillows, pencil cases, beach towels. They are everywhere so surely you’ve seen them too?
I love it, who doesn’t live for watermelon in the summer? It sounds ridiculous but this phone case does literally brightens up my day.
It’s larger than the phone so people say that it looks like I’m holding a clutch most of the time. The downside is that it won’t fit in your back pocket… but if you have a handbag then it’s a win or if you don’t have one, then you have what looks like a savvy clutch in your hand.
