I was recently lucky enough to be invited on a trip to Morocco, a place I’ve always wanted to visit. The country didn’t disappoint- it was such a wonderful mix of different cultures and eras. I decided to try and capture the vintage glamour of the place on my lomography camera- I use the Diana F- here are some of the results. More
Well helloooo there, Fitting Talk readers! I hope you are keeping away the Winter blues as we are nearing the end of January…roll on Spring, I say!
I am really excited about Freya’s celebration of one of my favourite ever bras, the delicious, delectable and dependable Deco. Deco is my favourite Freya bra because it is reliable, supportive and so well shaped. I wear mine under t-shirts, sheer lined tops and yoga gear, and count it as my g0-to for daily comfort and support.
Well, I’ve been back from my summer holiday for nearly a month now, and I’ve only just managed to catch up with all the inevitable post-vacation emails/washing/general settling back in to the old routine. I had a fabulous break, but within days of returning I was feeling horribly stressed again, so I had a serious sit down to consider what bits about being on holiday made me so relaxed, and what elements of them I could try and hold on to in my everyday life. Here are some of the conclusions I came to- there are no earth shattering revelations but it’s sometimes easy to forget how the little things really improve our quality of life.
Hello Freya fans! My name’s Katie Antoniou and I’m thrilled to be one of Freya’s new bloggers. I’m actually about to head off on holiday to America, so I thought I’d write a quick blog post to introduce myself and give you a peek inside my luggage before I set off. Pictured are some of my hand luggage essentials for a long trip- starting in the top left and working clockwise:
Music: I like to have something new on my ipod for a long plane journey- at the moment I have Gabby Young and Other Animals’ new album which has been the soundtrack to my summer.
Luxe City Guides: I used to have a real aversion to travel guides; so many just send you straight to all the tourist sites, whereas I actually prefer to discover all the best local hang-outs. I was sent the Luxe limited edition bespoke White Linen summer collection recently- you get to choose which 5 city guides it includes- and was thrilled to see that the London guide book included all the spots I would recommend to someone visiting our capital. I took this to be a good sign that these guys actually know what they’re talking about, so I’m looking forward to discovering other cities with their insider knowledge!
Life has been manic lately. Trying to find the time to site down at the computer without someone telling they need a wee, or a drink, or so and so has taken there toy has become tough. I have also had lots of work commitments on top of a husband that has taken on extra work, so for the last four weeks I have had kids seven days a week and no break (an this week will make three!). I only tell you this because I have not stopped by for a few weeks and have missed the glamour and adult company that is Freya Fitting Talk.
So my last break was four weeks ago when I attended another conference in London. This one was aimed more at the Mummy market but had some fabulous speakers like Sarah Brown and Cherry Healey and Katie Hill all there. It was spread over two days and was full on with seminars you could attend, PR networking, photography workshops and of course an award ceremony.
It was inspiring and brain buzzing and exhausting but I really enjoyed it.
Of course the key thing about preparing for such events is the ‘What to wear scenario?”
I determined to wear heals on the Friday. I love shoes, is it one of my passions but the practicality of wearing these days is not so good, so they stay and look beautiful in the wardrobe, teasing me.
Out they came on Friday – my beautiful Office shoes in a nude colour. OMG how much have I forgotten what heels are like? To say my feet hurt by the end of the day was an understatement. I feared I might never walk again! They did look good though!
