French & Grace, Brixton Village

On Saturday I continued with my rather gluttonous mission, to eat my way around Brixton Village, by visiting the much talked-about French & Grace. We climbed over boxes of wine to seat ourselves on one of the indoor tables and sampled the near-famous über wrap, consisting of a flatbread stuffed with lamb merguez, halloumi and hummus. I’m in agreement with Jay Raynor; a big thumbs up!

HD Brows - Brunette Brow Palette

I have long lusted after the thick, dark eyebrows belonging to the likes of Cara Delevingne, Arizona Muse and Bambi Northwood-Blyth. While I may not be quite as blessed as the in-demand models above, I have found the perfect product to help achieve the look with my own sparsely populated brows. HD Brows in Foxy is the perfect palette to fill and highlight the brow. Model bookers please form an orderly queue…

Topshop Lipsticks

Inspired by the great weather we've been having in London, I went to my local Topshop to purchase some bright summer lip colours. I ended up gorging on the lipsticks for at least an hour, with a hand full of tester marks, before leaving with 'Brighton Rock' and 'Whimsical'.

Petit Bateau Raincoat

I've been longing for a yellow fisherman-esque jacket for some time now, ever since I saw a stylish Scandi girl sporting one in my area. It's been over a year now but I seem to have found the perfect utilitarian style from Petit Bateau. Roll on pay day!

Azeala Banks, Dazed & Confused Cover

If you've walked past a newsstand today, it's more than likely that you would have done a double-take at Azealia Banks' debut cover for Dazed & Confused. The cover features the Harlem-raised rapper amid a teenager bedroom blowing up a raspeberry-coloured condom. It's the most striking cover that I've seen since Dazed & Confused featured a pint-sized Björk. The notoriety of the magazine and songstress will continue to rise as the issue has been banned in seven countries and counting...

Dalston Eastern Curve Garden

If the sun is shining, you long to escape the crowded parks, and you find yourself in East London then head down to the Dalston Eastern Curve Garden. The gardens are the perfect urban oasis and you'll hardly notice the hustle and bustle of the Kingsland Road once you're there. Take your book and enjoy the walled garden!

The Return of the Susanna Boot by Chloe

For months now I have been coveting the Susanna boots from Chloé. The Susanna style prompted huge waiting lists and sold out in a flash. However, fear not, they have recently been reissued so be quick!

These beautiful studded biker boots are on the feet of every fashionista alike these days from Sienna Miller to Kate Bosworth; as soon as I saw them I needed to know how I could have them in my life. Sadly, they retail at £850 which means that I may have to make do with the Office knock-off…

Beach Volleyball Fever, London 201

If you follow me on Twitter you can probably tell that I’ve become a little obsessed with the Olympics. I’ve managed to get my hands on three last minute tickets for London 2012: women’s hockey, beach volleyball and indoor volleyball. Last night was the turn of beach volleyball at Horse Guards Parade, and what an event it was! The electric atmosphere, musical interludes, dance troupe, commentary and Mexican waves made it one of the most enjoyable sporting events I’ve been to in a long time!
