A Day at the Polo with Links of London

This time a couple of weeks ago I had absolutely no expect what to expect from the polo, all I knew was this it was a bit like croquet but played on horses by Prince William's mates. The lovely people at Links of London invited me along to the Audi Polo at Chester Racecourse to join them for the day, to educate me in the ways of the game!

As it happens, none of us were really sure of the rules of polo... But we settled down in the beautiful hospitality marquee with the sun shining down on us for a three course meal complete with a quick lesson about polo and the history behind it. Turns out it's a rather odd game, it's made up of four 7 minute quarters, there is no gender split so men and women can play against each other and half way through all of the spectators head out onto the pitch to stamp down all the bits of turf that have come up. Told you it was a bit odd!

We spent the day soaking up the sunshine, chatting endlessly about everything from shoes to new boyfriends, trying out gourmet marshmallows, being treated to a beautiful Links of London diamond bracelet, making new friends and eating delicious food. It was just what I needed at the end of a very busy week at the office! Thank you to Links of London and Trace Publicity for having me, it was such a lovely day.

Links of London have also teamed up with Make a Wish and will be donating 10% off every sale from their Hope range, which you can find here.

It's The Man's birthday tomorrow and I am stupid excited about heading to The French for lunch, watch out for food porn over on my Instagram and twitter, if that's your kind of thing!

Pink and Lace at London Fashion Week

After a very long and tiring London Fashion Week, I'm home and settled wearing my favourite oversized sweatshirt poring over my hundreds of photos from the long weekend, absolute bliss.

It's been about five years since my first season at London Fashion Week (see my first outfit on Refinery29 here!) so my outfits have got more and more practical over the years so they tend to be far from street style worthy, sensible(ish) shoes and definitely comfortable. This was my outfit for the third day, I opted for layering a pink swing dress from Missguided layered with my favourite black lace dress from Three Floor. I kind of love the effect of wearing the two at the same time with the little peek of lace underneath!

Statement jewellery is really not my thing so I opted for subtle, but luxurious pieces including my new Diamond Essentials bracelet that was given to me by the lovely girls at Links of London.

I'm also finally happy with my hair! I got fed up of growing out my fringe and cut my full fringe back in, I'm so much happier with my big helmet of hair back!

Time to get back to real life, work and celebrating The Man's birthday this weekend at The French in Manchester, cannot wait!

Checking in from London Fashion Week


After weeks of planning, stressing and shopping, London Fashion Week finally arrived and in true LFW style, it's now nearly over! I'll post properly about everything when I'm home but I just wanted to post a few snaps of what I've been doing in and around Somerset House.

You can keep up to date with snapshots on my Instagram, Coggles Instagram and you can read my London Fashion Week show reports over on I've also included some links below to the highlights of London Fashion Week so far:
I'll be back to normal posting including a more thorough LFW post next week, now it's time to carry on writing, uploading and preparing for an afternoon at the Paul Smith, Vivienne Westwood and Belstaff shows.
