Every street, club, shop and magazine seems to be channeling Alexa's style, and why not, she is the epitome of effortless chic. This girl has the skill to achieve what very few can; to look like you have not tried, and to look good with it. Having an indie boyfriend on your arm also can't harm your style status... Now for those of you , who like me, want to add a little bit of 'Alexa' to our wardrobes you'll be pleased to know that there are some very easy style tips to abide by. Firstly, Alexa never wears tights, bare legs are a given. Secondly, long pendents are worn with anything and everything. Then there's the matter of the cut of the clothes; Alexa always opts for classic cuts giving her a timeless look, this teamed with vintage accessories, a boyfriend blazer and bed-head hair finish the look. However what makes this girl's fashion sense so enviable is that she has such natural style and never ceases to amaze us with her ingenious piecing together of outfits, take the pink velvet Luella ruffle dress at the Elle Awards as a prime example. Alexa we adore thee.

I ventured to the Notting Hill branch last weekend and was confronted by queues of sugar-craving adults, who like me simply couldn't decide which delicious cake, cupcake, brownie, pie or cookie to choose from. I was torn between my old favourite, the red velvet cupcake and the daily special nutella cupcake. In the end I went for the nutella, which was divine, if not a little sickly sweet. Don't let the queues put you off, it is definitely worth the wait.
The delectable cupcakes are a dream of heaped buttercream icing, gorgeous colour, finished with dusting of sprinkles, You can also be assured that they are all cooked from scratch in-house.
The shop itself is a style haven with frosted windows, the inside is decorated in sumptuous cupcake shades of pink, brown and red that entice you in with even the merest glimpse of the treats on offer.
When you're in here, you're greatest life dilemma is not the newly announced recession but what flavour your cupcake will be. Indulgence never tasted so good.
