Style Note: The Isabella Oliver Cape

Posted by London Darling

Yesterday was one of those cold and breezy days in London when you really need something warm and snug to wrap up in. And what better way to wrap up than in a cape. It's the perfect alternative to a winter coat. I received this beautiful one as a Christmas Gift from one of my favourite labels Isabella Oliver.

London Fashion Week Diary: BODYAMR

Posted by London Darling

The BODYAMR show was one that I was particularly looking forward to, and it was well worth the wait. The signature draping that I love still played a huge role in the collection as an abundance of luxe fabrics and beaded embellishment.

Beauty Buzz: Liz Earle Naturally Active Skincare

Posted by London Darling

I recently changed my beauty regime to include the Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser, the Instant Boost Skin Tonic and Skin Repair Moisturiser. It's been just six days, and already I've seen a noticeable difference in the clarity of my complexion and the texture of my skin.

Carrie Bradshaw - Sex and the City
Mr. Big and Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and the City

Are you self-confessed Sex and the City junkie? I'll admit that I can watch the reruns to the high heavens. I have the movie proudly displayed in my DVD collection and I still swoon over the Carrie's style. Despite the show's end, it seems that the fictional fashionista continues to ride high on the best dressed list and one of the key accessories allowing us to tap into Ms. Bradshaw's style is the identity necklace.

Carrie necklace,

Made popular by the episode where Carrie finds her lost necklace at the bottom of her clutch bag in Paris, it remains one of the most googled jewellery pieces in the UK, often referred to as the "Carrie necklace". The delicate reference of your name, gracing the collarbone has a certain bespoke appeal and when worn simply, provides a sophisticated finish to your look. I wear mine with small stud earrings and usually with a plain white tee or a pretty cashmere top. Subtlety in colour and style helps pull the look together I think. Customised necklaces are available from £19.95 at

To finish on a nostalgic note, let's take a look at that SATC episode where Carrie finds her identity again! Love it.
