I love, love, love an LBD (as those who follow me and my LBD-obsessed ways here, already know), but I do like to cheat on my go-to black with it's classic sister from another mister: red, adoring the whole spectrum from scarlet to ruby, peach, crimson russet and even oxblood and maroon.
As I mentioned in December 2015 (that seems so long ago now)! 2016 is the year of the collaboration for me, and that it is!
Tuesday was one of my life highlights. I was honoured to be asked to speak at Mosaic, a charity founded by HRH The Prince of Wales in 2007.
Holly McGlynn is a Dublin-born, London-living fashion photographer. A graduate from the prestigious Goldsmiths, University of London (where I also received my BA and MA from), she was nominated for the Irish Fashion Photographer of the Year 2014 and 2015.

Isn't March turning out to be luminously glorious in the UK? My family's certainly relishing in this window of unexpected sunshine, fully enjoying a more outdoorsy way of life after being cooped up for what feels like forever this winter, set free to roam around, a renewed spring (and a jump) in our step. Yay!
One of my oldest, closest (and most gorgeous) friends Emma is in London from LA over Christmas so this weekend was all about quality time together, catching up face to face (Skype can never compare but helps since she moved Stateside), Christmas shopping and of course partying in sparkly London town!
When Alexander was 3 weeks old, I was asked if I could pop by and give a lecture on my career as a writer/director at the Northern Film School/Leeds Metropolitan University. Despite being pretty sleep deprived and foggy headed, I agreed. You see overall I felt great-I was buzzing from the birth and physically and emotionally strong enough to go in for a couple of hours.
Dear London, Thank you for a very wonderful weekend. These few days together truly cemented our long standing love affair.
