Real girlfriends fix each others crown….

…Or in our case, fix each other’s baseball cap! I had such a lovely, productive and feel good catch up with my designer friend Dionne Da Costa of Bohemiannova at the stunning Aloft Hotel in Liverpool. I met Dionne about a year and a half ago at a Charity Fashion Show and we jelled straight away. Not only did I fall in love with Dionne’s beautiful designs, I also gained a friend for life. Make sure to grab a minute and check out her fabulous bespoke designs on her Facebook profile Dionne Da Costa.

Spending time with a close friend made me realise that the best kind of friendships are fierce lady friendships, where you aggressively believe in each other, defend one another and believe the other deserves the world.

The kind of friendship where one says; “That’s a horrible idea!”, “What time?”.

The kind of friendship where you don’t even have to ask if she’s got your best interests at heart.

The kind of friendship that isn’t about being there when it’s convenient; it’s about being there when it’s not.

The kind of friendship where time flies when you get together and leaves you with the biggest smile on your face and great memories.


I am truly lucky with a fabulous tribe of strong, hardworking and independent women, who like me, believe in the above mentioned vibes. However, getting back to the productive bit and the reason why Dionne and myself got together today. Dionne will be designing an incredible bespoke gown for an upcoming photo shoot in London later this month. The thing that excites me so much when I get together with a creative friend, is that ideas are always bouncing around to better ourselves and to help each other up that ladder of success. I am super excited Dionne and I will be working together on something special, involving a stunning piece of statement clothing. A must have in your wardrobe. An item that will scream classy, sassy yet trendy. Watch this space whilst myself and Dionne are working on this exciting new venture. I will keep you all posted.

If you have any suggestions for a piece of clothing or an accessory you would like to rock this coming autumn please let me know. I would love to hear your fashion tips and what garment and accessories makes you feel like a million dollars. In the meantime keep looking after your tribe!

Lots of love
