I Remember…Overpowered

Roisin Murphy Overpowered Released : 11 October 2007 In 2008 I lived in a lovely apartment in Toronto. Perfect area, great complex, friends in the building…It was perfection, except for my roomate who I had found on Craiglist after my original roomie moved across the country. He was an ‘actor-y actor’, he was a bit…

What I Wore Week of 29th February, 2016

I get into moods where I am sick of ALL of my clothes. There is a lot of repeating going on. I call it creative recycling, and I think it is working for me, but there are moments when I crave change. This usually results in a  bulk order from Asos (because who has time…

What I Wore : Week of 22nd, February 2016

When I was younger and wore heels out, surely they didn’t hurt as much as they do now. How could I have survived those nights out with all the dancing? Even after a bottle of prosecco, nowadays I still am hobbling around. It must be age. It has to be. These lace up heels I…

What I Wore : Week of 15th February, 2016

I usually get a good response when I wear my Coca-Cola t-shirt. I found it at Primark on Mare Street on Hackney. Have you been there? It’s a zoo. It’s actually great. It was on the t-shirt rack, in a heaping tangled mess aka the preferred visual merchandising technique at that location. It didn’t have a price…

Marrakech

  Living in London, Europe is of course a short train or plane ride away – but so is the majestic beauty of North Africa. I went on this couples trip in February 2014, and it was cultural, it was eye opening and it was fun! STAY Riad Dar Najat I had wanted to stay in the…

What I Wore : Week of 8th February, 2016

This was a good body week. Early on, I was feeling sexy and cute and wanted to show off some curves and swerves in my new grey skirt. I was also feeling like going into the archives on Thursday with that Justice shirt that brings back all the memories of 2008 when they did a…

What I Wore : Week of 1st February, 2016

The week of the 1st of February looks lazy. Wearing the same thing but not on Monday and Wednesday…wearing trying on Tuesday but not hard enough. I probably had a meeting on Thursday which explains trying to pull myself together. By Friday I just wanted to rep Toronto. If I could psychologically analyse this set…

What I Wore: Week of 25th January, 2016

In January you want to make an effort, you want to feel like this year will be different. I will be professional, I will wear lipstick, I will finally embrace being a grown up. By Friday I was in leopard print suspenders…so…yeah. Monday Black Turtleneck – Asos Grey Skirt – Asos Brogues – Clarkes Tuesday…

What I Wore : Week of 18th January, 2016

I went to El Salvador in 2005 and my mom had this beautiful alpaca sweater. I eyed it the whole trip and finally at the end of the week, I asked “Can I have that?” and she said, “Sure!” because moms are great like that. I wore that sweater day in and day out for…

Playlist 01 – UK House [workout]

  Working out. Going to the gym. The eternal struggle of fist world problem mankind. How do we lose weight? What is the one true answer? What if I do this class? What if I only eat potatoes for two weeks? Will a three day juice cleanse solve all of my problems? There is so…

What I Wore : Week of 4th January, 2016

My trip to Senegal over Christmas was inspirational. The sun, the sea, the music, the bright colours, the culture, the history… It was a new year and I was ready to hang on for dear life to the energy and emotion of the two weeks that had just passed. I came back to work on…

What I Wore : Week of 14th December, 2015

Working in advertising has its pros and cons. Cons are: long hours, crazy requests, big egos in the room, too much booze. Pros are: creative work environment, no dress code, too much booze… Take for example, the week before Christmas. Usually there are so many parties and not enough days in the week, and this…
