Most people spend their Valentine's either on a cute date with their partner, or crying into a tub of ice cream. I, however, did neither. On Friday 14th February, I was lucky enough to attend a blogging event at the fabulous Danish eyewear company CrossEyes in London.

CrossEyes is possibly the coolest eyewear brand ever focusing on style rather than price. I was especially impressed with the wooden sunglasses and glasses. With a varied range of colours and styles, there is a pair to suit everyone, and it's definitely value for money!

Set out in an equally stylish space, the company's staff were on hand to help and are clearly passionate about the brand and it's concept.

I am in love with CrossEyes and you should be too!

Zooey Deschanel. Actress. Singer. Designer?

I absolutely fell in love with Zooey as Jess in the hilarious sitcom New Girl. However, before this career defining role, she had supporting roles in films Almost Famous, The Good Girl, Elf, The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, Failure to Launch, Yes Man and (500) Days of Summer. Quite an impressive list. But this kooky Californian truly found international fame in the form of Jessica Day. A teacher looking for a new apartment after breaking up with her boyfriend moves in with three guys, and becomes the 'new girl' in the loft. On top of all the awards she has won and been nominated for, Zooey also finds time to do music with M. Ward, creating the unique sound of She & Him. So what's next for this accomplished star? Fashion, designing a capsule collection for Tommy Hilfiger.
