A brand I'm loving is Aeron – especially its knitwear collection from last season. One of my resolutions this year is to buy more staple pieces for my wardrobe and, while I’ll always love colour, I’m leaning towards simpler shapes and classic tailoring. This brand is the perfect place to start if you want great quality basics.
One under-the-radar brand everyone should know is Rua Carlota. It’s based in London and the pieces are made from pre-loved and deadstock materials which are then repurposed. You’re bound to find something to add interest to your wardrobe.
The JW Anderson store in Soho is one of my favourite places to shop. The staff are great and the collections always excite me. I never leave empty handed. One of my more recent purchases was this pink and blue bumper baguette bag. I cannot recommend it enough – such a fun piece.
SSENSE is great for online shopping. I really like that it stocks a lot of smaller designers. The collections also include a lot of unisex pieces, which speaks to my personal style.
A go-to evening and event dress brand is Andreeva. I wore one of its dresses to an event last summer and just loved how fun it was in a room full of neutral outfits. That said, I have worn the new Skims winter collection dress on repeat and don't think I’ve ever felt this confident. It’s the most flattering piece I own and I will definitely be investing in other colours.
My favourite winter piece is the Uncle Studios mohair knit vest and matching scarf. It's seriously soft. I’m very much a texture person, as soon as something feels itchy, it’s gone from my wardrobe.
A good facial oil is a winter beauty essential. I’ve been loving the Monday Muse one for over two years now. I have combination, acne-prone skin and it’s worked wonders in preventing flare ups. I use it sparingly and alternate it with the Sunday Riley CEO facial oil.
The Charlotte Tilbury highlighters are my favourite beauty discovery. From the stunning texture to the colour, I’m obsessed. I love a natural and glow-y make-up look, and I hate when a highlighter feels heavy or overpowering. This is neither and gives your skin the loveliest sheen.
I love following @DanielleMarcan for beauty inspiration. She’s extremely talented and a wizard when it comes to make-up. Whenever I feel a little inspired to do something fun with my make-up, I always check out her Instagram or TikTok first.
My favourite budget beauty buy are the Garnier sheet masks. Every time I do a food shop, I pick at least three more of them up because they’re just that good. I like the Nutri Bomb milky sheet masks best – perfect before or after a night out.
I change up my haircare regularly. Right now, I love the Wella Professionals Care Colour Motion shampoo and conditioner. I have thick, long hair that gets quite dry, so this has been the perfect remedy. I’ll often switch between a couple of hair masks but I really rate Maria Nila Repair, the Oribe moisture mask or the watermelon scented one by Garnier. I also love Ouai’s Leave In Conditioner or the Colour Wow Dream Coat to keep frizz at bay.
A perfect self-care Sunday usually includes applying my Tatcha Violet C Face Mask, before getting into a bath filled with the Susanne Kaufmann Bath oil. I then apply my Costa Brazil body oil afterwards – the scent and texture feel so luxe.
CULTURE & LIFESTYLE
New York is my favourite city in the world. I feel like my soul comes alive as soon as I touch down at JFK. I recently used Plum Guide to find a place to stay and also think AirBnb is always worth a look. I enjoy staying at Nomo Soho – it’s never overcrowded, the food is amazing and the views are perfect from every room. My dream holiday destination would probably be Costa Rica. I’ve wanted to go for years and, while I don’t have concrete plans yet, I’m getting ready to bite the bullet.
For a London staycation, I love The Londoner. I’ve stayed there a few times and even celebrated New Year’s Eve there. The restaurants are spectacular, the interiors feel cosy but also sexy and cool – plus it’s in Leicester Square so everything is within walking distance.
I can’t choose between Instagram and TikTok. Recently, I’ve loved following @TinVcb for fashion inspiration. We have similar approaches to personal style, so she’s been my go-to. For interiors, I find myself on @DennisVonNazareth every day. His taste in interiors is incredible and I wish I had his apartment. When it comes to travel, a recent find is @Silvi_Lubilubi. I have half of her page bookmarked for future travels. If you need a bit of glamour in your life, you should follow @AmbikaDhr – her TikTok videos are so tasteful and stylish, she’s amazing at what she does.
The NearlyWeds podcast makes me cry with laughter. I then scroll on TikTok and Jamie and Sophie’s clips make me laugh even more. I can’t say I’m massively looking forward to the wedding – mainly because I’m not ready for that podcast to end.
