Harrods Sale

Christmas is over but there is still room for celebration. The arrival of the new year is just around the corner and the Harrods sale is on. Now, to me this is amazing news! It is always a good idea to do a bit of shopping before you wave farewell to 2014. Enjoy!!

Neville's Island at the Duke of York's Theatre

A couple of weeks ago, I visited the theatre and saw a truly suberb comedy that I enjoyed so much. Last time I laughed so much at the theatre was when I went to see The Importance of Being Earnest at the Harold Pinter Theatre. Neville's Island (which runs until 3rd January), follows the hilarious adventures of four out-of-condition, out-of-their depth businessmen on an out -of-control team-building experience.

Outside the theatre
Neville's island has arrived at the Duke of York's Theatre, starring Adrian Edmondson, Miles Jupp, Neil Morrissey and Robert Webb. The play is written by Tim Firth and directed by Angus Jackson. This production marks the play's return to the West End, 20 years after it was first seen in London at the Apollo Theatre.

The impressive stage
Happy news: My ticket had been upgraded!!

Don't miss this wonderful play and watch out for the scene with the sausage! I nearly fell off my seat laughing!!!

Have a great week!!

Julia Roberts for Givenchy

Here I am, back to London after a short break in Greece where the weather felt like spring. I was drinking coffee by the sea and I was feeling like Easter was just in the corner. The moment I set foot in London, the dream got shattered and I am literally cold! Everyone around me is under the weather and I have to guard myself. After all, I have a Christmas do this coming Saturday that I cannot miss. 

While on holiday, I got the chance to read plenty of magazines - them being a nice company to my coffee interactions! I absolutely fell in love with Givenchy's spring/summer 2015 campaign, starring the iconic Julia Roberts. Ricardo Tisci has landed Roberts and the black and white images shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott are so powerful. I love the fact that Julia's signature 1000-watt smile has been cleverly replaced with an intense, hard-looking gaze.What do you think of the campaign?

Have a great day!!

Victoria, Victoria Beckham x Nails Inc.

This has been quite a successful year for Victoria Beckham. The opening of her first flagship store in Dover Street, London is counting a few months of life and I am a huge fan of her collections. I love the minimalistic lines, colours and simplicity of her designs. It's all about being comfortable, classy and feeling feminine at the same time. A little Victoria Beckham dress is really missing from my wardrobe, but we will get there...eventually!

The designer is expanding her empire via a nails collection created with Nails Inc. Two shades - the nude Bamboo White (my favorite) and the orangey Judo Red - will launch as a collaboration between Victoria Victoria Beckham and the British nail brand. 

Available on from December 8 or in store from February. 

Have a great Sunday loves!!

Happy Socks

One of my favorite winter accesories (hats aside) are socks. There is not a better feeling than wearing a funky pair of socks while being at home (no shoes allowed), sipping some coffee and reading a book in a lovely, warm corner. One of my favorite brands is Happy Socks and I love their limited edition collaborations.

Happy Socks, the Swedish accessories brand has just opened its first UK flagship store in Seven Dials, Covent Garden. HS create colourful knitted  socks in an almost endless aray of designs and vast colour spectrum. They make the perfect treat and gift, don't you think?

 The 600 sq ft store will stock the label's full collections including the Happy Socks x Snoop Dogg collaboration. 
Happy Friday everyone!!

At the Airport

On Tuesday I had an early flight to catch to Athens and I spent most of the night at Stansted Airport waiting patiently for the time to board. I was flying solo but I had by my side a couple of cups of coffee and "The Rosie Project" which by the way is hilarious!!

This is the second time that I am finding myself at an airport during the early hours (last time I was at Heathrow) and it is amazing how lively the atmosphere is there :-) Once you get used to your surroundings and given that you have a very strong coffee going down your system, you completely forget that it is 4 in the morning!

Airport essentials...
No sleep, no make up, but I have coffee instead :-)
Healthy power salad and coffee
Reading all about Don's dating adventures!
All I smell is Chanel
Les Extraits by Chanel
Chanel kisses
I am loving this lipstick (Rendez vous) by Chanel
I am planning to spend the next few days at the comfort of my house and a lot of chillin' will be involved. The weather in Greece is pretty amazing and I am trying to get used to the high temperatures (around 20 degrees) opposed to the low ones back in London. The other day, out of habit I got my gloves as I left the house, and people were laughing at me. This is not London, where my hands get attacked by the cruel cold, this is warm land :-)

I hope you are all well. Have a truly amazing day!!

Hello December :-)

December is finally here, a fact that brings us even closer to Christmas! Excited much?

This morning I am adding the final touches to my preparations for my early flight tomorrow and the pressure is on. My favorite Whistles dresses have been packed, along with comfortabe Lanvin flats and if I am forgetting anything, my sister's wardrobe will come to the rescue.

First things first, let's not forget the passport :-)
I always have a book with me when travelling... Such a bookworm!
Chanel essentials...
I have a busy day ahead of me, but my mind will eventually be put to rest once I step foot at the airport.

Have a great week everyone and an even greater month!!
