Jayne’s Kitschen


She’s in parties

August 14, 2013

And oh my what a party it was! Last weekend I traveled to London to attend Jayne’s birthday party at Roadhouse in Covent Garden and it was great fun. Jayne had decided we should all be dressed in tv or film characters so we all went in fancy dress.

Jayne looked amazing in her Poison Ivy costume. No wonder she is a beauty blogger, she is great with make up! If you want to look at her page, she blogs at Jayne’s Kitschen.

We rode the train in our costumes and we got lots of attention (some of it unwanted, who needs dirty catcalls? Boo!)

We finally made it to the venue and some more people were waiting for us. The place is quite big, has a huge bar, a wide selection of cocktails (and a happy hour until 7:30) and a live band. I spent the night drinking Strawberry Daiquiris and it was good. The decoration is a mix of Americana (lots of neon signs from gas stations and the such) and varied motifs on the projections – some with pin ups and others like Kraftwerk above, having fun fun fun at the autobahn. It was lovely to meet some of Jayne’s friends and a few giggles and a bit of a dance was had by everyone.

This one was taken at the end of the night as I was feeling a little bit chilly. So, this is what I wore to the party. Mask, Asos skirt, black peter pan collared top and Dr Martens boots, all via Ebay, bag from Target. I was called Batgirl, Catwoman… but none of those guesses were right. Can you guess who my character was? See it after the jump!

Summer Dreamers

Remember a few weeks ago when I went to London to help out with the new Mod Dolly look book? The photos were finally released and I can share them with you. I’m very happy to be part of interesting and fun projects such as this and so grateful to Amy to let me participate.

The photos were taken by Amy He and the models are bloggers Jayne ofJayne’s Kitschen and Emily of Emily Divine. I helped out with the styling and assistance. You can shop the looks on the Mod Dolly website here. In the meantime, enjoy the photos! See all of them on the Facebook page and click like, while you’re at it, yay!



Mod Dolly look book – behind the scenes

June 12, 2013

Last Saturday I went once again down to London to help my friend Amy with a photoshoot, for the new look book for her brand Mod Dolly. This time we had two models to work with – bloggers Jayne of Jayne’s Kitschen and Emily of Emily Divine, as well as Tilly of Tilly-Jayne. You can also find Tilly’s behind the scenes photos here.

The weather was glorious that day and we spent the perfect day frolicking around Kensington Gardens, a part of London I had never visited before. I hope you enjoy the photos, I will share the look book once it is ready.

We had a couple of little helpers… They were also very keen on helping us on our dieting as they kept trying to steal our food!

I wish we had more days like this!
