LEAN IN

I’m feeling particularly spritely at the moment and I’m trying harder to take the time for the occasional fist-pump and self pat on the back. I’m pretty sure it’s all down to my current read, “Lean In” by Sheryl Sandberg. The Facebook COO has written down her personal career story and I’m only half way through but already feeling completely empowered. She has an incredible way of looking at things and it’s really made me think about my own take on feminism and my own personal career path. I’d definitely recommend it!

I met up with the lovely Amber-Rose last week to take some snaps on Charlotte Street as I wanted to share some new pieces in my wardrobe. Charlotte Street is one of my favourite areas in London, especially for food! Right in the middle of the street is the Charlotte Street hotel, a beautiful location and a great spot for afternoon tea.

I picked up this blazer in Topshop and it’s quite different for me so I was unsure at first but I love it. It’s loose fitting with double breasted button details and a gorgeous bamboo print. It actually comes with matching shorts but I prefer to wear it with casual jeans and flats. I’m so happy the weather is improving in London, it means I can finally start wearing my Whistles flats – they’re so comfortable and go with everything!

I’m so in love with my new bag, it’s the Celine Nano Luggage Tote and I picked it up when I was in Paris for fashion week. The purchase was completely overshadowed by the fact that I saw Jessica Alba in the Celine store but it was a really special purchase and one I’d done a lot of research for beforehand. I’ll be filming a handbag collection soon where I’ll talk more about this bag in detail but I’m so happy with it and I’m glad I chose this one in the end. The tricolour makes it really interesting and I love the pop of blue!

NYX Butter Gloss in Tiramisu has been my staple nude lip gloss recently and it’s perfect for a subtle everyday lip. I’d love to know what you think of these photos? Would you like me to do more?

    Please don’t do any more. Ever again. What is with this new trend for bloggers to have professional pics whilst showing off their latest luxury bag that they ‘so carefully considered purchasing’? Please don’t all turn into Estee Lalonde, it’s a total snooze fest. And that blazer looks like curtains.

    I’ve heard a lot of good things about Lean In and it is definitely one in my wish list. Last year we set up a network for women at work where we support each other to develop and progress in our careers and it has really changed the meaning that feminism has for me. I hope you do a full video or post about the book and your thoughts on it.

    They are really nice photos and the quality is definitely evident, especially when you view them larger. However I’m not sure they add anything to my overall enjoyment of the blog, if you see what I mean? Just my opinion!

    I love the fact that you’re smiling a lot in these photos – you look happy and very natural, spontaneous. We don’t always see that in outfit shoots, so thumbs up for that! The Céline bag is super pretty and I love how it matches the outfit you’re wearing. It must have been such a cool experience to see Jessica Alba in the shop!
    As for the book, I don’t read non-fiction in general so that’s not the sort of book that I research and go for. However it must be so inspiring to read the story of a powerful, successful woman. We need more of these! 😀
