If you love wearing silk shirts and dresses and delicate fabrics that seem to crease easily then you are probably in need of a steamer, and I have to share with you how impressed I was with the handheld Philips Steam & Go that I discovered during London Fashion Week at The Apartment. I’ve been considering getting a steamer for a while, especially one that could also be useful when travelling, so I was quite excited to put this handheld gizmo to the test on my most delicate items, which I usually just send to the dry cleaner to make
When I think of books from my childhood, anything by Roald Dahl comes to mind, especially Matilda, didn’t everyone hope one day they would magically have the power of telekinesis?!?

Anything that combines fashion and colouring in with a journal vibe grabs my attention, which is why ‘Map My Style’ is my latest book addiction. I do love it when I’ve got an outlet for my doodles, and more so when they revolve around fashion! By illustrator, Dom & Ink, I love that ‘Map My Style’ is part fashion journal, there are pages to share your love from bloggers to follow, favourite colour, as well as room to share fashion advice, your style crushes, and the best places to shop to find everything from denim and dresses to workwear and shoes.
