First day of London Fashion Week; I really loved the Bora Akusu show! It reminded me of the four seasons of Norway with inspiration of the Queen jubilee.
Last week I was invited to the preview event of the Lipsy Christmas Collection in London. I would describe the collection as a delicately embellished dream of winter pastels topped off with the ‘must have’ Christmas dresses that I think Lipsy are experts of.
The items will be available for purchase in December. For other products visit Lipsy
London has been full of all sorts of sports and all shades of pink! The Olympics has inspired London and the sun has come out to play too. As part of Team GB’s efforts to be the best, Stella McCartney has designed their kits and uniforms as well as doing a special shoot with Vogue and the USA Olympic team. Well done to Team GB for all the golds but now I’m rooting for the Dream Team in the basketball final! Xx
Last week Victoria`s Secret opened their first store in London Stratford, Westfield shopping center. Not only are the lingerie and products amazing, but the interior is simply heaven; Pink silk bows, photographies of all the beautiful angels on the walls, pink leather chairs and sofas and custom made furniture; simply pink everywhere you turn. That’s what I call retail therapy.
At the moment Victoria’s Secret is giving away this gorgeous limited edition tote bag worth £70 with every £50 purchase. They also have a range of items specially made for London including a new perfume called “London in love” (also available all over the US).

From one Victoria to another, its no secret why this company is simply best at bras! Did you know that Victoria’s Secret sells 400 million bras a year? Its all about the technology and of course the fact that they have been producing lingerie since 1977. As a proud member of the Angels team I want to share with you how you can find the perfect bra for your sexy little self.
The best thing to do is of course to go to your local Victoria’s Secret store and get a bra fitting. If there is not a Victoria’s Secret store in your country just follow these easy steps to find your correct size.
When you get a fitting in the store you will receive a “perfect fit card” where your name, size and preferences will be written down. It’s recommended to have a bra fitting every six months.
What do you want your bra to do for you? Choose between the different styles.
Now you can look at the different collections. All the collections come in different styles.
To find the perfect bra for you its smart to try on different collections. At Victoria`s Secret they will give you a set of bras in your size when you are in the fitting room for you to try on. Your favourite ones will then be written down on the “Perfect fit card” so you dont have to remember which ones they are. Keep it with you the next time you shop and simply ask for bras from your favourite collections.
Remember to take care of your bras, so hand-wash them and dry flat. Victoria`s Secret also produce detergent that is truly amazing, it is kind to your bras and smells amazing.

Have a great weekend, dolls!
Opening of the TOMS one for one store in Covent Garden.
My dear friends from class; Luke Craggs and Yael Lapiner, entered a competition where they created a window display for TOMS pop up shop in Covent Garden. They won a trip to TOMS head office in Los Angeles and they also get to have their windows displayed for two weeks each. They are very creative and sweet people who I really care about, so I am so happy they won this competition. Read more about the project HERE

“Høyer”is a high fashion luxury store chain in Norway. It was founded by Ørnulf Høyer, an inspiring man who also happens to be my former boss. I worked for Høyer before I moved to London to study at London College of Fashion. It was lovely to meet my old colleagues again, and have a snooze around all the amazing luxury retail.
