The humble off the shoulder top is back, and it’s most recent incarnation is all kinds of cool. With it’s beachy vibes and exposed décolletage it’s slouchy, relaxed and just a little bit sexy…
I’ve always had a penchant for good cocktails (surprise, surprise) but it’s only really been since Sam and I moved to Paris this year that we have gotten into making our own. Whiskey Sour Friday’s, Bloody Mary Sunday’s… You get the idea.
There’s something just so satisfying about nailing the perfect drink come cocktail hour. And this past week it has been all about experimenting with the newest concoction to our rotation, Ciroc Vodka’s Summer Punch. Fruity and sweet (but with a decent kick), it’s the kind of drink which requires plenty of ice and a balmy summers eve…
And in the name developing my cocktail repertoire, I’m off to UK soon for the London Riviera Ciroc pop up where the aim of the game is to learn how to mix drinks like a boss at their School of Mixology. Tom Cruise eat your heart out.

When it comes to fashion, there are few concepts more popular than ‘borrowing from the boys’. And to be fair it rings true, I always reach for Sam’s oversized shirts and slouchy knits before my own. Thankfully, British knitwear designer John Smedley has wised up to our wardrobe thievery and created a unisex capsule collection that looks as good on girls as it does our male counterparts. As simple as it is concise, the four piece collection hits all the notes with minimal colour-ways (navy and grey) and two relaxed styles in the most delicious honeycomb merino wool.
So good I managed to persuade my better half to get in front of the camera for once…

The longstanding wardrobe staple is being chopped up and re-done. Denim is no longer just about skinny cuts and 501’s… Flared, frayed, distressed, wear it any way you want.
