• Collectif Summer Party!

    Hey everyone, long time no see! I hope you are enjoying the (not so) summery weather here in Blighty at the moment and are in the mood to *que Bridesmaids reference* partaayyyyyyy! Today I have a very exciting post for you all, which comes in the form of a summer party that my best friend (*waves* Hey, Krystal!) and I attended last weekend on Sunday. Although the weather wasn’t exactly what you’d call summery, the party was booming, the drinks were flowing and the people were dancing late into the evening. The party was held at the fabulous Cuban themed Gabeto Bar in Camden and was organised by the wonderful…

  • The Audrey Hepburn Tag (By Shirinatra)

    Hello Everyone, welcome back to my blog. I hope you are all doing well, and that you are ready to celebrate Audrey Day! (Although its almost over #mybad) For those of you who arent aware of the significance of todays date, it actually marks 90 years since the birth of Audrey Hepburn who was born 4th May 1929! Sadly, although Audrey is no longer with us, her legacy as a beauty/fashion icon, movie star and humanitarian still live on today, which is why when I saw that Shirin (or Shirinatra on YouTube and Instagram) created this tag in her latest video, (linked below this post) I knew I had to…

  • Dior at the Berkeley: Pret-a-Portea Afternoon Tea

    Welcome back everyone! Since London is suitably consumed by Dior Fever at the moment, I figured it would be insulting not to visit the Berkeley Hotel in Knightsbridge to try out their new Dior afternoon tea, wouldn’t you agree? Following the success of the V&A’s stunning Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams exhibition (link to that post below), London has not disappointed Dior fans, as galleries with stunning Dior pictures were shown earlier this year (Proud Galleries blog post below) talks and lectures about the fashion house seem to be popping up all over, and of course it would not be a suitable British tribute to the House of Dior without…

  • Agatha Christie’s ‘Witness for the Prosecution’: Review

    Hello, Hello! Welcome back everyone to another post. Today I shall be reviewing something different, and that something is the play ‘Witness for the Prosecution’ which is currently running at London County Hall. For those of you who arent in the know about this play or story, Witness for the Prosecution was written by the Queen of Crime Agatha Christie in 1925 and was originally called ‘Traitors Hands’. The story was renamed in 1933, when it was published in a collection of stories called ‘The Hound of Death’ and to this day you can still only read it in a collection due to the length of the story. The story…

  • A Week With Marilyn: Photographic Exhibition

    Hello Everyone! Today’s post is a photographically inspired one, from my recent visit to the ‘A Week With Marilyn’ photographic exhibition at Galerie Prints in Wimbledon. Showcasing a selection of beautiful pictures of the Hollywood starlet, Galerie Prints, in collaboration with the Getty Archives, showcased a collection of Ed Feingersh photographs from his week with Marilyn in 1955 as she went about her usual weekly routine in NYC. The exhibition provides fans of Marilyn with some gorgeous and rarely seen photographs, and as its free….to visit why on earth wouldn’t you want to pop down and see it? I hope you enjoy some of the photographs I took on my…

  • The Dior Collection: Proud Central (Gallery)

    Hello Everyone! Long time no see eh? Today’s post is more of a photo themed edition, as I am sharing with you my pictures from Proud Galleries (recently opened) ‘Dior Collection’. Located literally just around the corner from the National Gallery, the Proud Gallery is a photographic gallery which features a collection of pictures from a colourful array of past figures, such as; The Kennedy’s, The Beatles, Bowie, The Stones… to name just a few! I first heard about the gallery when I saw an advertisement for their recent Audrey Hepburn Photo Exhibition back in 2018 which I loved, so when I saw that they were going to be hosting…

  • The Aftermath: Film Review

    Hi Everyone, Welcome back, I hope you are all well and in the mood for a good ol’ period drama review today! Now…..as you all know I am a massive period drama nerd, so big I would go as far to say that I couldn’t survive without them. I love everything about them, from the gorgeous costumes and people, to the period setting and the historical backdrops in which they are set. So when I saw the trailer to The Aftermath last year on YouTube, I knew there was NO WAY I could miss seeing it – Kiera Knightley + Post-War setting = perfection. Kiera is of course, the QUEEN…

  • Photo Diary: Trip to Koln

    Hello Everyone! How are you all doing ? I am currently sitting at my desk, with a freshly made cup of tea, my record player playing the soundtrack to Babylon Berlin (thought it was suitable for writing this post ) and I thought to myself … what better time to get this post written? So, get yourselves ready and comfortable for today’s Photo Diary of Koln! As my Mum works in a school, her only real time off is in the school holidays, so when we realised February half term was coming up we decided to book a overnight trip away… but where? We gave it some thought however, it…

  • Call The Midwife Tour: A Day at Chatham Dockyard

    Hello, Hello! Today’s post is a weird one, as it is a reupload from my old blog ‘Elisha’s Vintage Emporium’ onto this one in celebration of the finale of the EIGHTH series, thats right eighth! Tonight on BBC One at 8pm. I absolutely adore everything about Call the Midwife, and it is such a cosy Sunday night period drama to watch, I’m not sure what I’ll do with my weekends after tonight boo 🙁 Anyways, enough whining, I hope you enjoy this repost! Off we go, back in time to last May…… Well guys, well, well, well. Guess who has no job, has finished university and is sitting on her…

  • Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams Exhibition at the V&A

    Hello! Hello! Welcome back to the blog everyone, I hope you are all doing very well and are as excited for today’s post as I am! Now, I would like to start by saying that I am by no means a fashionista and ‘in the know’ about what’s in what’s out and what’s shaking it all about in the fashion world! however, I do really enjoy fashion, especially if its vintage (of course!) so when I heard that the Christian Dior exhibition that I had visited at the Musee des arts Decoratifs back in Paris in 2017, was coming to London I honestly almost fainted with excitement! The exhibition was…
