The beginning of a new year is always exciting. A clean slate. Time to start over, work on new dreams and be inspired again.
Below are some of my favourite January items in one of my favourite areas Holland Park, W11.
So ignore the chill, dust off your finery, polish your best shoes and live life like it’s a catwalk.
It’s the start of a new year. A new beginning. Everything will change.
You will open the book. It’s page are blank. The book is called Opportunity.
-Edith Lovejoy Pierce
Beauty begins the moment you decide to be yourself
Be brave. Take risks. Nothing can substitute experience.
I want it all- and I would like it delivered!
Give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the world.

In Honour of Bettie Page
Photos by Eamon McCabe
Bettie Page, often referred to as ‘Queen of Pinups,’ was a 1950’s icon and has influenced artists for generations. She started off as a ‘camera club’ model and soon gained popularity as Miss January 1955 for Playboy. She started modelling after moving to New York City and soon posed for infamous photographers Bunny Yeager and Irvine Klaw whilst she was widely known in magazines Wink and Beauty Parade. Here is my shoot by Eamon McCabe wearing her trademark black bangs with a dash of vintage glamour…
“The interesting thing about Bettie that I discovered was to leave mystery. She always retained a little mystery. Let there be some unknowns.”
“I was never the girl next door.”
“It suggested forbidden fruit as well as apple pie.”
-Playboy Magazine on Bettie Page
“I never kept up with the fashions. I believed in wearing what I thought looked good on me.”
Darling Bettie in 1956
