#273 - Hues Of Blue





Coat + Jumper - River Island // Jeans - Miss Selfridge // Boots - Office // Handbag - Karen Millen

Hello hello, hope you're all well! 

This blue jumper is my absolute fave. I've had it for about five years (maybe even longer?) and it comes out every winter and does a sterling job of keeping me toasty. I love the vibrant colour of it in contrast with the brown hues in this leopard print coat. In my eyes, they're a match made in heaven. 

This week has been pretty busy at work, but also exciting. On Monday I headed down to an art exhibition near Kings Cross, which I'd definitely recommend. It's called Radical Love and is a collection of artworks themed around the topic of female lust. What's really interesting is that the works have been created by 48 female artists from all over the world - many of whom are Muslim or of Arabic descent. We headed down there to interview some of the artists about what female lust means to them and their hopes for women in 2017. If you're interested, you can watch the vid and find out more about the exhibition here. 

Following the BAFTAs last weekend, I felt compelled to venture to the cinema and see some of the films that were shortlisted for - and, indeed, won - awards. Dan and I watched two new films this week (yes, we really pushed the boat out). The first, Lion, was so emotional that it physically hurt me to not bawl my eyes out. Then, yesterday, we went to see La La Land. They're two very different films, but I loved both of them. Lion - which we saw on Tuesday (Valentine's Day) - is this incredibly emotional tale of an adopted young man's search for his family and home, after he became lost in India aged five. Dev Patel plays a brilliant part in this and I had to try really hard not to start crying, mainly because I knew it would turn into ugly crying / full-on incontrollable sobbing for the remainder of the film. I had tears streaming involuntarily down my face, but thankfully I didn't go past the point of no return. On the opposite side of the spectrum, La La Land is the perfect remedy to all of the shit that's currently going on in the world. It's this feel-good, love story starring two absolute babes - Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling. There's singing, there's dancing, and I came out of it wanting to tap dance my way to Waitrose (now that's a sight you don't see everyday).

Anyway, that's all from me! It's time for a cuppa and quite possibly a biscuit. (Actually who am I kidding? I'm definitely going to have a biscuit.) Hope you're all having a wonderful weekend x

  2. Here is the truth: a good lifestyle shopping online brand is more than just promoting a way of life; it offers a product or service that provides consumers with an emotional attachment to a particular lifestyle. Fashion
