MFW: Marni SS12 live streaming

I’ll be hosting a live stream of the Marni SS12 show on Sunday 25th September at 10.45am Milan time (9.45am BST)!

Come back tomorrow with a bug mug of tea and watch it right here – it’ll be the perfect hangover cure!

Speaking of hangovers I’m currently bed-bound after a great night out with my work colleagues, featuring good/bad karaoke, arguing with a strange old man who tried to gatecrash the party, and falling asleep in the loo for 2 hours (classy I know). Thankfully Grey’s Anatomy is back to get me through this, thankfully I have a multitude of goodies from my M&S goody bag, and thankfully Chris is so amazing he went to get me pizza for breakfast.

London Aquarium

I’m heading to a couple of LFW things on Friday, going to Manchester for the weekend (to see Adele *squee!*), and then popping to another LFW show on Monday. Clearly I’ve got a busy few days planned – and I’ve not even packed for my trip to the mothership yet – so I may be MIA for a while but I’ll still be tweeting at @ByBlahBlahBecky if you’re missing me… ;) In the meantime here’s (part of) what I got up to on my birthday last Wednesday.

Sea life

As I’ve mentioned very briefly already, Chris took me to the London Aquarium for my birthday. We spent 2 hours enthralled by Green Sea Turtles, sharks, crocodiles, ‘Nemos’, Big Bellied Seahorses, Foxface Rabbitfish (seriously), and of course the new Gentoo Penguins. My favourite were the rays, who are natural born show-offs and are just so adorable-ly playful.

It wasn’t what we had planned initially (damned trains) but I had such a lovely day and I’m always happy to be a tourist in London, despite the fact that I live here again now. (In other London antics, tonight Chris and I are attending a recording of Jonathon Ross’s new show and the guests include Stephen Fry and Hugh Jackman – I’m still struggling to get over the fact that if we’d gone 2 weeks ago I’d have been in the presence of SJP and Adele. Woe is me.)

Video: Fishy behaviour

Here’s some very simple footage I shot using my crappy old phone. I couldn’t resist the urge to overlay the video with a clichéd but wonderful Disney song…I’m sure you’ll have guessed which one (:

And the winner is…

The winner of my giveaway for 2 tickets for London Fashion Weekend, courtesy of Lavazza Coffee, is:

Adele of Into The Blonde!

Congratulations Adele, I hope you and your plus 1 have an amazing time! (:

Links á la Mode: The IFB Weekly Roundup

We’ve finally just had the internet installed in the new flat (3 weeks without wifi equals a crazy blogger) and I was thrilled to see I’ve made this week’s Links á la Mode. I’m looking forward to reading all of the other posts – along with 1039 unread Bloglovin’ posts…

Season of Change

Edited by: Meghan of WIT & Whimsy

One of my favorite parts about fashion is how the seasons influence our style. As summer winds down, and as this week’s Links a la Mode showcase, it appears we fashion bloggers are ready to usher in fall and embrace layering, new trends and an entirely new season full of ways to rework our wardrobes.

The IFB Weekly Roundup: LINKS À LA MODE: September 1st


Fashions Night Out at Shopbop: Chaser Tees, Vince, Tbags LA, Freecity, Obakki, Maison Scotch, Aiko, So Low, Joie, Siwy, Wilt tees, Cut 25, & UGGs.


If you would like to submit your link for next week’s Links à la Mode, please register first, then post your links HERE. The HTML code for this week will be found in the Links a la Mode group will be published later today. ~Jennine
