Describe your blog in three words.
Sassy, smiley, black.

Who are your favourite London bloggers?
Camilla from Into The Fold, Remi from Hands of Style, Charnah from Iheartchxr, Lizzy from Shot From The Street and Charlotte from Iamcharlottemartin, to name just a few.

Which are your three favourite London brands?
Definitely Asos, Monki and Finery London.

What were your favourite moments or shows from LFW this season?
Jeremy Scott’s collections are always so wrong that they’re right. I am also a big fan of Yulia Kondranina and Ashish’s collections this season.

What is the one item from your wardrobe you would save in a fire?
My black pointed heeled boots from Asos. They probably would be on my feet, so I’d literally just run out of the burning house a happy woman!

Which beauty products couldn’t you live without?
Blistex lip balm is my holy grail, alongside my Nars Creamy Concealer, which is also amazing.

Which cities have you visited recently, and which are your favourites to shop in?
I haven’t travelled much this year, but New York City is probably my favourite place to go shopping.

Where do you like to shop in London?
I love the charity shops in Camden, Mornington Crescent to be precise. I also love Soho for quirky jewellery, and the East End Thrift Store for insanely cheap coats.

Where is your favourite place to eat in London?
I love DF Mexico in the Old Truman Brewery.

Aside from shopping, what are your favourite things to do in London?
Shoot blog posts and wander around markets!
