goblin guide to Paris


Susanne B's charming Paris apartment, good location & good wifi, what more can you ask for?


Helmut Newton at The Grand Palais. Small but worth it. Epic queues.



 Hippie Market(21 rue du Temple)in Le Marais, one of the better curated vintage shops in the area. This means everything was laid out nicely and you get to say hey to these two pals. But wander across the road to the less tidy shop and rummage for a couple of hours you may come away with 2 leather jackets, 4 silk scarves and a terry toweling dress for about £30.

A walk through Père Lachaise Cemetery on a rainy afternoon makes for good relaxation time.

Laduree(21 rue Bonaparte)for mid afternoon snack and a proper cuppa.



lola&grace Unlock London Launch

Last Friday saw the launch of Unlock London at Westfield Stratford City, we celebrated with a little breakfast and a lot of chat. I even managed to pick up some new jewellery for my trip to Paris this weekend. 

The Unlock London installation included a cute little sweet shop, a secret disco complete with dressing up box (hence the wigs), a mini cinema showing fashion films all day and photo booth.Just had to use your key that was given to you in store to unlock all the fun.

Don't worry, you haven't missed out, the lola&grace Unlock London campaign will continue on during the month of April with more prizes to be won, chosen by myself, fifi lapin, Le Cool and Pop Justice.


a night in Paris

what does one pack for a weekend in Paris? 

Hermione De Paula SS12 shorts of course, available from Shop at Bluebird

nothing says Paris like something new and silky from the new Comptoir Des Cotonniers SS12 collection right?

finished off with these Superga flatforms, perfect for spending the day walking from gallery to gallery (bakery to bar)

how do you say Addison Lee in French?


check out all the fabulous munch Los Angeles had to offer me



This Thursday see's the anticipated launch of the new lola&grace store in Westfield Stratford (and there was you thinking it couldn't get much better after PinkBerry) 

If you're an early bird like me, get down quick as the  first 50 will have the chance to bring in your old jewellery which will be recycled in exchange for £50 lola&grace voucher to be spent in-store. Who doesn't like new gems?

For all you others that can't drag yourselves out of bed too early, don't worry there's exciting things going on all day. Between 2pm – 5pm, my pal from back in the day, Illustrated Nail Inc will be keeping the nails looking as fresh as the jewelery. 

Need some help deciding how to pair your jewelery? Mademoiselle Robot will be around to show you how the professionals style it up.

Top of the cupcake game, LOLA's cupcakes will be there on hand keeping party goers full of cake!

Then the most important part, at 6pm the party goes in and I will be live on the decks. Free drinks. yummy canapes and Destiny's Child, can you think of a better way to spend a Thursday? 


My Work - Duran Duran, Girl Panic, Music Promo Video.

I freelanced for Harpers Bazaar on this insane collaboration between themselves, Duran Duran and Swarovski Elements.

This has to be the biggest and most intense productions I have ever worked on. 

Shot in the Summer over 3 days at The Savoy, London, the team, headed by Vanessa Coyle made Fashion History. 

It wasn't all work and no play, have a look at 

the behind the scenes video to see how much fun 

we had whilst making it.

All up in the kitchen in my heels, dinner time

this video is everything

blue suede swag

Adidas had a little press preview for their AW collection which dropped last Saturday.

I brought these fly bitches with me.

 aztec and prints for AW and some colour block t shirts that remind me of a pantone chart.

But it was a pair of blue suede shoes that stole my heart, can't resist a classic gum sole.

This jacket was getting a lot of love, but the best thing about the collection was the brilliant finish and stitching on each item.
