The Webster Miami x Le Bon Marche Paris

The Webster x Le Bon Marche 6It seems there really is no rest in the world of fashion… we were just 10 days into the New Year and some of the biggest designers in the industry had already launched a limited edition capsule collection celebrating the collaboration of Miami’s famous concept store, The Webster, with the much-loved Le Bon Marche in Paris!

With a unique decor combining the iconic central escalators of Le Bon Marche and the exotic pink flamingoes of The Webster, the two stores are currently hosting a selection of iconic designer pieces re-invented to fit the ‘white’ theme. My virtual wishlist already includes a gorgeous Victoria Beckham figure-hugging dress, the classic Givenchy Shark bag with contrasting black stitching and Kure Bazaar‘s set of three white polishes in a signature gift box (the only realistically affordable item on my list!).

If you’re budget is looking very much like mine at the moment, you might prefer to stay away from the Capsule Blanche and head over to the LBM x The Webster collection instead (much safer!) where you’ll find flamingo print tote bags, keyrings, notebooks and even wallpaper!

The collaboration runs until the 21st of February both in Paris and Miami as well as online.

Ice Skating at Somerset House

Somerset House Ice SkatingSomerset House Ice SkatingSomerset House Ice SkatingWhen spending time in London during the lead up to Christmas, there are a few moments which everyone has to experience… and one of these is ice-skating and mulled wine at Somerset House. The windows at Selfridges and Harrods have to be seen, Christmas cupcakes from the Hummingbird Bakery are not to be missed but the beautiful ice-rink with the backdrop of Somerset House is one of my favourite winter moments!

Last week, I was lucky to have shared the experience with my beautiful mummy and Parisian boyfriend (he was absolutely loving all the British festivities!) and despite the fact that none of us actually made it out onto the ice, we had such a great time just taking in the merry atmosphere, drinking mulled wine and browsing all the tempting treats at the Christmas Arcade.

This year, the Somerset House Rink is hosted by Fortnum & Mason which means the après-skate shopping and entertainment are exceptionally good! There’s champagne and cream tea in the Fortnum’s Lodge, cocktails and fondues in the Skate Lounge and late-night shopping with a limited edition range of items available on-site only!

Book tickets online at Somerset House or find out more on the website.

On Set with International Bloggers for Italia Independent

Backstage film shoot Italia Independent Yay, I’ve been really excited to share this latest shoot with you guys and now I can finally tell you all about the sneaky pics that have been appearing on my Instagram and Twitter feeds.

A couple of weeks ago, I joined five international bloggers from across Europe for a film and photo shoot in the heart of Paris (literally) at the Notre Dame. The bloggers on set were the stunning Nikita (UK) of Meet Me in Paree, Leni (Germany) of the blog Style Kitchen, Laura (Italy) from The Old Now, Sophie and Pascal (France) from Venus is Naive and Luxsure and Alfredo (Spain) from Calamity Cool. We shot in beautiful locations from Notre Dame Catheral to the Ile Saint Louis and the ever cool Marais quarter and I really love how the photos turned out. The video is also super cute and I love how it’s filmed to look totally natural and free-spirited, check it out at the end of this post.

So… the reason behind this project? A unique flash sale with the ever cool sunglasses brand Italia Independent! If you haven’t heard of the brand yet, you’ll be hearing a lot more about it soon as blogger-come-celebrity Chiara Ferragni of The Blonde Salad has  just released a capsule collection in collaboration with the brand.

Check out the photos below and head over to vente-privee today for your summer sunnies!
