A Day at RHS Hampton Court Flower Show 2018 | London Lifestyle

RHS Hampton Court Flower Show 2018 | London Lifestyle

I recently visited the 2018 RHS Flower Show at Hampton Court Palace and the experience was a bloomin' botanical treat from start to finish.

There were countless show gardens full of beautiful plants, workshops and talks by a range of experts and celebrity gardeners, food stalls and music acts - also a huge market to purchase plants, herbs, succulents and just about every gardening gadget you could think of.

The June Review

Syon Park Foodies Festival

I'm writing this one very late. Lately the days have blurred beyond belief and I don't know whether I'm coming or going at the moment!

On the plus side, I had some lovely days out last month - highlights included a sunny day out at a Street Food Festival in Syon Park, a fabulous night out watching Drag mother and daughter Alyssa Edwards and Shangela werk it at the Clapham Grand, terrible karaoke with my work team, a boat trip from Richmond and a lovely day brunching and sipping cocktails for a friend's birthday. 

Cue the rambling section of the post...

Embracing The Man Repeller Style

Man repeller styleMan repeller style

Over the years I've struggled to define my personal style.

In my teens and early twenties I went through phases of trying to replicate the Brit-cool looks of Kate Moss and Alexa Chung before leaping to the boho end of the spectrum and trawling ebay for floaty, floral vintage dresses and bags inspired by the Olsen twins. 

These days, you'll mostly find me in a combo of the following: mom jeans, oversized shirts, culottes, slogan tees, midi skirts, blazers, trainers. Comfort is key for my style but I do still like to make a statement. Whether that's through recreating a 'look' which has inspired me or by mixing in a statement item with wardrobe staples.
