Yesterday I went for lunch with Laura, Katie, Emma and Zoe and met with Estee Lauder to discuss the launch of their summer collection - Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess. Y’all might know that Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Perfume is my favourite scent of all time. But its limited edition 
and only ever comes out in the summer. We went to The Boundary in Shorditch which didn’t feel like we were in Shorditch. It’s a rooftop bar/bistro which over looks urban East London. I had Steak and Chips (very lovely) and a fair few of their Blackberry Mojitos (v. good). I went for a wander around Boxpark and then headed back home to spritz Bronze Goddess on myself and listen to Get Lucky.


This is the dress that I wore to The Brits (#humblebrag) but I haven’t actually worn it since. It’s actually surprisingly wearable for something so jazzy when it’s dressed down a bit with a black blazer and a hat. It's pretty loud but perfect for sunny East London days!

If you didn’t know it’s my birthday on Sunday (as well as Easter Sunday) but I don’t have any plans at the moment. I think Im going to head over to my friends house to chill and waste time! I kinda hate birthday and I really feel like Im getting older and older these days. I’m going to be 24 years old which feels like I'm getting awfully old. Sigh!
