Last Sunday saw me getting crafty with the kids making – what for it – binoculars from toilet rolls!! I think I enjoyed myself more than the children but thankfully they have a great spirit and best of all imagination! They loved the end results ;0)

Hello everyone, I thought I would write a little update of the last few months as it’s been a while since my last styling diary entry. Thank you to Clare who flew to Geneva for me on a VERY last minute booking for a private jet company, it was a mad rush to call in all props (thank you Emily) but as far as I’m aware, the client is very happy and the shots look lovely. We have finished shooting ‘Cook on a Shoestring by the very talented Sophie Wright‘. I’m dying to show you some of the images from the shoot but I’m afraid it will have to wait until its released in October. The styling was so much fun, and with a team of 5 women we had quite a few giggles! Jemma Watts was the photographer and so we were based at her London Fields studio for 3 weeks, a great team and a great job. Below are a few pictures of my props area at the studio.
After this, we were straight onto the Adsa Look Book. It was a full on week with many shots to get through but again, we had such a great team and more laughs which helped us along the way. Jon Day was the photographer, and as always he produced some gorgeous shots. Below are a few pictures from behind the scenes at the shoot, including Lucy and the locations dog, Hector (everyone wanted to take him home!)
A few days after Asda finished, I flew to Amsterdam as a guest speaker for the 2012 Meet The Bloggers (may I point out that I was up at 4am for my flight, and then had to go straight to the venue to do the talk – I am pretty broken at this stage!) Now in it’s second year, the sell out event is the brainchild of Tulipa Media, the aim is for bloggers from all over Europe to meet and take part in a day of workshops and listen to key speakers inspiring and educating them about blogging. I was extremely flattered to be invited to tell my story and hold a workshop on Blog Styling including layout, content and reaching your audience. Frida Ramstedt was the first speaker, talking about how blogging has made her a millionaire (lots of advice can be found on the Meet The Bloggers website about this, including her top 10 tips) Also speaking at the event was the simply gorgeous Yvonne Eijkenduijn, who talked about products and blog styling/photography. And finally there was the lovely Danielle de Lange from The Style Files, who joined the three of us in a panel discussion. Everyone that I met was so friendly and full of enthusiasm; it was an amazing experience.
Last week we were shooting a Halloween feature for Pippa Jameson Interiors and 3M, this isn’t due to be published until September and so I can only show a few sneaky pics…

I have just been sorting through all of my press releases and brochures from BlogTourNYC (which are now 3 months old!) and found myself glued to the A/W Bloomingville collection. The fast growing wholesale company is based in Denmark and produces product for the home and garden. Their products are a mixture of scandi, french and industrial vintage and I LOVE it all!! This company works for me on so many levels; the originality, style, affordability, and ethical views are all to be commended. Contact Bloomingville directly to find your nearest stockist.

I can’t believe it’s been over a week since my last post, I have been back to back with jobs over the past few months and so sadly my little blog has suffered ;0(
I’ve been out propping for a private client this morning, and so it was off to Kings Road to begin my research. I always come here when I need to create a moodboard as you have everything you need (even though it takes forever to walk the length of Kings Road!) I start at Chelsea Harbour and then work my way back to Sloane Square via Osborne & Little and Anthropologie. Above is the beginnings of my moodboard, my client wants an earthy palette and is keen to have a little bit of sparkle (or rather ‘bling’) and so I thought the Rabanna wallpaper from Osborne & Little would be perfect, it has a subtle glint when it catches the light and adds depth and texture to the scheme. I’m also loving the new A/W ranges from John Lewis and so I am sure we’ll be spending a few pennies there! I always have my trusty colour scheme book which I picked up at Maison in Paris, it has a gorgeous selection of soft and muted colorways, very ‘Farrow & Ball’. It’s called Jeux de couleures 2.and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who puts together decorating schemes.
I couldn’t resist a little visit to Anthropologie (they have an amazing sale on at the moment). As usual, their display was fantastic, they had a selection of old school chairs suspended from the ceiling with a picture of her majesty as the centerpiece.
I had to take a picture of my favourite street in this area: Bywater Street, SW3 The pretty mews is home to stunning town houses painted in an array of pastel colours.
