So our first YouTube video is up and it’s been really nice that some of you have left some kind comments about how its nice to hear my voice and to hear what I sound like, truely thank you for that ❤
Now honestly, having managed to click a million times (ok, not a million more like 20 times) on the video whilst failing miserably to configure my channel, I couldn’t help but cringe because to me, my voice sounds super weird… it is quite amazing what adding one camera can do to my pitch and to my silent twitching & tourettes, but I am hoping that you have all been through something similar at one point or another and so you will bear with me until I get it talking down to a fine T…I mean, how wide does my mouth need to open for me to be able to speak? If that is what I look like when I talk, what must I look like when I eat? How Beyonce manages to sing Halo with all her pearly white teeth shinning and without a tonsil insight is truly beyond me… One thing is for sure, I’m going to have to get tips and learn from other people’s mistakes, starting with a general rule of no bacon sandwiches, because I mean look at what happened to poor old Ed Miliband (leader of the opposition) when someone did the dirty on him and filmed him eating his on camera…
Now, the other day when we were walking around London dressed as Bad Ass Rebels, I couldn’t help notice that all the Christmas trees were left abandoned lying in the road in front of all the houses, it just felt a bit sad because I realized that Christmas had well and truly finished. So, today as I am hauled up inside trying to avoid the rain, I wanted to share with you some pictures that we took just after Christmas when we went Ice Skating at Somerset House the place where London Fashion Week is held and which is next to my old uni King’s College London 🙂
Somerset House always looks really stunning around Christmas time and I would definitely recommend people to go there for ice skating as it was not only in the film Love Actually, but its also very central and decorated with beautiful lights. An ideal place to enjoy an incredible collection of paintings by the old masters and impressionists, whilst also spending a sparkling, white Christmas in London. This year, Fortnum & Masons, once the official confectioners to the Queen and established since 1707, had their own private tea rooms and had also decorated the large fur tree in front of the ice ring in a really beautiful way. I really like going into their store in Piccadilly Circus and seeing what magical wonders and creations they have in their food court, so it was really nice being within rolling distance of their amazing cakes and food!
This last month and especially around Christmas time I was really loving sequins, so I decided to wear an embellished top from All Saints. It’s very cleverly made, because the fabric is quite sheer but different layers are knotted at the back mean that is isn’t see through and remains light and cascading. The neck line is low but not revealing and the back is closed at the top of the neck but floats open when you move. It isn’t black but onyx or dark grey and the silver and gold delicate beading really make it perfect to dress up any look. Its one that is great to wear throughout the day, adding a little touch of glamour to a day outfit whilst having the potential to be dressed up for a night out on the town. I combined it with my black ripped Primark Jeans that were perfect for skating in as they are not too precious to me, some retro platform rainbow sneakers and a foam black blazer that I bought my Mum for £3 from Primark and which I then borrowed 😉 Today was day for accessories, and so I wore two hand made evil eye bracelets that I got sent to me from Istanbul and lots of silver rings.
