OUTFIT | SILENCE IS THE SLEEP THAT NOURISHES WISDOM


Hello everyone! How have you all been? I hope that you all enjoyed your weekends.

I'm so excited to be blogging once again on FM, it's been a little while. I know I've been very silent on here but I do look forward to sharing a few bits on here with you!

It was always on my mind to update my blog a lot sooner but I never ever got round to it (naughty). It's crazy how the months have just flown by! What have you all been up to?

Just a little update for you all; although I've been silent, I've been learning A LOT! I've been planning a few exciting ventures, attending great lectures/events, learning how to speak Mandarin, whilst working full-time in my new role as a Marketing Manager for a B2B company (Business to Business). I must say, the past few months have been very fun. I'm much more excited to see what next year has to offer.

Last week, I also attended a press day event for the new on-line brand "Cage City" (read more here). It was so great to meet the team, take some pics and learn more about what they represent.

I also did a little bit of a haul (post coming soon) and found this holographic clutch in Toppers! I know it's looks a little Sci-Fi but I just can't get enough of it. It was only £15 so I grabbed it straight away.

I have some great posts coming up for you all BUT what would you guys like to see more of on my blog? Perhaps your ideas can inspire more posts!

PRESS DAY | CAGE CITY AW13 & SS14


I was so happy to receive an invite to attend the press day for the new on-line store, Cage City last week. I had seen them on Twitter and I looked forward to learning a little more about them.

Cage City are a brand that represents our inner young and ‘stylish free spirit’. They showcase the best in one off, vintage and handmade clothes all designed by up and coming creative designers .

The event was held in Charing Cross in the Underground Galleries. The location really reflected the brand and the designers collections perfectly. The team were extremely friendly, I met with Lois who showed me through the collection and explained more about the brand.  They had both their AW13 & SS14 collections on display for us all to look through and take some pics. I loved the quirky twist that all their pieces had and I was able to pick out a few that I liked (photographed).

There was so much to do like create your own custom beanie hat, get your nails painted with cool nail decals and of course have a few drinks & mingle. 
I spent a (little) while helping myself to their vintage-style pick and mix sweet selection (Typical Tolu). Who remembers Fizz Wiz dipping lollipops in the picture above? I used to love these! They also gave me a lovely goody bag which had some cute bits and bobs inside.

Here are 5 items that I have picked from their site that I would definitely rock. Click to see what they look like - what do you guys think?

2 Galatica Dress by Style Stalker
4 Frontin Maxi Dress by Style Stalker
