Whilst London Fashion Week happened way back in September, for me it is still fresh in my mind. Not only because of the fabulous clothes that were being showcased, but because for the first time ever I was actually there! (Yes, you read that right). I was actually in attendance at two of the coolest shows at LFW: Peter Pilotto and Ashley Williams.

Now whilst I wasn't lucky enough to be a seated guest at the shows, I got the amazing opportunity to intern at both. I worked at a PR company in the build up to both shows, going around London delivering invites to all the VIPs, and greeted and seated the guests at the shows, held at the new Brewer Street location.

Hello again lovely readers! I must once again apologise for my long blogging absence, but I can assure you it was for good reason (I would never abandon my readers without one). So what is it that has kept me away from blogging for the past two months? Interning.
Last Friday was my last day of my press internship with Impulse PR, a fabulous fashion PR agency based in London specialising in jewellery and accessories. I can tell you, for someone who's jewellery collection consists almost entirely of Freedom at Topshop, (which is a client of Impulse), there was no better place for me to intern.

I have always had quite dry feet and so was on the look out for a good product to specifically take care of just that very problem, and this Body Shop purchase turned out to be just what I needed.

I have always had trouble with my skin so love it when I get the chance to test out new products. Cleansing brushes have been all the rage recently and to see if they live up to the hype, I've been testing out the Magnitone Lucid Cleansing & Exfoliation Brush* (£69.99) and here I am a week later to report my findings.

Ear drum bursting music, extreme mosh pits and mud up to your elbows. This could only mean one thing: festival season is truly upon us. 

Amongst the wellies, sunglasses, and flower hair accessories that get packed in your fest backpack, surely the first thing on your packing list - a tent comes in at a close second - has got to be dry shampoo. This product has been my absolute savour when I've had to go several days without giving my hair a wash. So if you're one of the lucky ones heading to Glastonbury this weekend, or any festival of your choosing this summer, here are my picks of the best dry shampoos to keep your hair looking and feeling fab.

Even if you don't know me, I like to think that by just looking at this mish-mash collection of items you can get a sense of my personal style. I'm not particularly girly, tending to stay away from a lot of colour and pattern.

Many people don't know that my hair is naturally wavy/curly because I never have enough time to let it dry naturally. I find myself having to resort to using a hair dryer which acts as a straightener and robs me of my natural style. So how do I achieve wavy/curly locks when I don't have a few spare hours in the morn to let it dry naturally or use a curling iron?

The Met Gala is easily the event where celebrities go all out with their outfits. It's the one chance a year that your fave celebs wear the craziest clothing and it deemed acceptable. Whilst there were some questionable outfit choices at last nights event, I am going to focus on my best dressed! So here we go...
Rosie Huntington-Whitely is showing of her AMAZE figure in this stunning Atelier Versace dress. If her ensemble wasn't sexy enough, she paired her look with slicked back hair and a dark lip. Round of applause for RHW? I think so.

Coming in at a close second for best day of my New York trip was day four. 

We started the day with shopping in SoHo where I picked up a vintage Zara skirt for an absolute bargain! We then visited to Factory PR in their new offices. The clothes of the brands the company represents were all laid out across several rooms, and the office even had a kitchen style are and funky sofas. I never thought a PR office could look so cool! (I'm also a sucker for exposed brick walls so that made the office even cooler). 

The day then took a slightly sombre turn with a trip to Ground Zero and the 9/11 Memorial Museum. When I visited New York previously back in 2008 the memorial was still under construction so it was absolutely breathtaking to see the finished product of years of hard work. I was so taken aback by how emotional I was, and my high emotions continued inside the Museum which I spent a good three hours in just taking in the magnitude of everything. I was reading every plaque, observing every artefact and object and listening to every video. I could have easily spent longer in there but my friends and I wanted to go up the Rockefeller Centre before it got too late.

 We got to the Rockefeller Centre at the perfect time. It had turned dark and the whole city was lit up and looked just magical. One thing is definitely true about New York - it has one of the best skylines in the world.

Now day three was probably the best day of the trip. It was a jam-packed day starting off at Central Park in the morning, followed by a tour of the Teen Vogue offices, and ending with a visit to the top of the Empire State Building. Now, does that not sound like an awesome day?1 (Hint: the only correct answer to that is YES). 
You don't realise quite just how big Central Park is until it takes you almost an hour to only wonder around the tiniest corner of it. Last time I was in New York was the summer of 2008, and this time it was winter so the park looked completely different to how I last saw it, but still just as beautiful. Last time I saw people on boats on the lakes and wondering around with ice creams, whereas this time round people were ice-skating and eating hot pretzels. (I myself couldn't resist getting a New York hot dog).
Next on the list: Teen Vogue. I honestly couldn't believe the fact we were about to visit the offices of one of the biggest and best magazines in the world. The offices are located in the new One World Trade Centre which is such a stunning and impressive building. I absolutely loved the tour of the offices, and it just reinforced my dream to work at a fashion magazine. The view wasn't half bad either.
Last on the list: the Empire State Building. I had also already visited this tourist attraction back in 2008, but the weather the day me and family went up it was quite foggy so we didn't get a very good look at the city. This time however was a different story. New York really is the most beautiful skyline in the world (or I am yet to see one that tops it).

So here it is people - day two of my New York adventure! We started the day off by heading down-town on the subway to catch the Staten Island ferry. It's a shame the ferry doesn't go closer to the Statue of Liberty, but luckily my camera has a pretty good zoom lens so I was able to get some good shots. I love how you can see right up the Hudson river and see NYC on one side and New Jersey on the other, and then if you turn the other way, you can see Brooklyn. 

Me and friends couldn't resist getting a Starbucks and slice of pizza for lunch. When in New York...
Afterwards, we headed to Battery Park which had some beautiful memorials and a beautiful view of the river with the Statue of Liberty in the background.

Let me just get out of the way now: Sorry for my recent blogging absence of late everyone! And hope you all had a lovely Christmas and New Year!

Now that's done, I've got some exciting things to share with you.. you ready?!

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to travel to NYC with my university. Now it would be a definite understatement to say that I fell in love with this place just a little bit. 

So I thought, I'd give you a little insight into what I got up to in my short six days there. So here is my New York photo diary - enjoy!
