catch up

I'm sorry for the lack of posting, things have been insanely busy for me. If you read the 'currently' section to the right hand side of the blog you'll know i've been travelling into London everyday for work experience at Sugar Magazine. It was a great experience, I was treated very well, I even got to write some bits and pieces which were then given to the features editor who said she may use some stuff as she liked it so much! I also got to meet the editor Annabell who was super friendly. Me and some other work experience girls helped her pick which photos of one of the hottest and most talked about celebs of the year to buy for use in a future issue. Cant tell you who but keep looking out for future Sugar issues!


The Sugar offices are at Marble Arch, allowing for several shopping trips on lunch breaks and I picked up this gorgeous River Island bag. NB - the photo does not do it just justice.


On my last day I was given a pink goodie bag of treats by Sugar to say thanks for helping out which i thought was really sweet. I got tonnes of CDs like Katy Perry and Girls Aloud, some teen books and beauty products, a selection of which is in the photo below. The green stuff in the pink pot is green hair dye, will probably save that for Halloween...


I know its not autumn yet but with the total lack of sunshine and dreary english weather I cant help thinking ahead to my winter wardrobe. I haven't owned a leather jacket since I was 11 but I feel now is the time for me to embrace the biker jacket once more. In these 'credit crunch' times it will probably have to be a faux leather jacket and as it will have to last through to January a cropped jacket is probably not a good option either...

Haven't found any jackets that have caught my eye as yet but here are some of my favourite celeb leather looks. I like how Kristen teams hers with yellow, makes it pop.



Have you seen any nice leather jackets on sale anywhere? Do you own the perfect leather jacket? If so where is it from? I must know!!!

Wow, it must've been great experience, and really lucky about the free stuff. I practically grew up on Sugar magazine. I absolutely love it a fwe years back.

It must feel amazing to work with such a magazine! And I think is also my time to find a leather jacket, but as you, I haven't seem good ones, maybe they are not out yet.

If I were you I'd check out New Look, Oasis and Topshop for leather jackets.
