Growing up in Devon the only magazine I would save up to buy would be POP; it’s been my favourite since can remember. I remember the blogger collaboration they pioneered back in 2009, just a year after I had started my blog and was avidly reading other blogs online. It felt like a really exciting turning point that I was desperate to be involved in; so you can imagine how ridiculously excited I was to be approached by POP a few months back, to help pioneer the launch of their new online site The POP along with YOOX.
The new segment, coined #POPSHOPPING see’s bloggers styling their top picks from YOOX for the new Pop site, shooting on film using Fuji Films Instax. It was across digital platforms including Pinterest, newsletters and instagram, as well as appearing in the brand new issue of Pop magazine itself (squeel!). Thank you so much to Stephanie for making the whole experience a blast, and to POP and YOOX!
See my interview with Pop on Yoox and make sure you go out and buy the new issue!
Excited about getting back on board with spring time (bare legs!), as London has taken a surprise turn with blossom trees coming out in bloom and a warm-ish snap. I can get back to throwing on my favourite basics without worrying how any layers of hairy knits are going to keep me warm, and wearing white without being on the look out for rogue buses and giant puddles!
Won Hundred has been my favourite for a long time, ever since discovering it through Varg when I first moved to London, I was hooked on the Danish sensibilities. Now Formula, a new online boutique stocking up and comers and established labels alike, has taken the helm at introducing me to the brands and pieces I need in my wardrobe this summer. Peridot London (as championed in my last post), Veja and See by Chloe just to name a few; and Francis Leon, in coming months. It launches today so check it out now.

The new website is officially live! I’ve been threatening to do a huge giveaway for a while now, so here it is. I know it won’t disappoint! I’m so excited to have teamed up with hair giants, Bumble and bumble, to offer some pretty uhhmazing stuff. I always use their products for my shows and editorial shoots, so it made total sense to team up with them for my first giveaway for the new site, and with items I use on a daily basis.
There are two sets of prizes, first is the Charlie May ostrich leather tee with Bumble and bumble quenching shampoo and conditioner, thickening creme and surf spray (This is available worldwide!). And, the second is two tickets to see our catwalk show at London Fashion Week, 15th September! As well as Bumble and bumble Mending shampoo and conditioner, surf spray and texture creme (this is available to UK residents only who are in London for fashion week.) Unfortunately I cannot provide travel!
All you have to do is sign up to our newsletter and follow Girl a la Mode on BlogLovin’. Just leave a comment below to say which prizes you’re going for (you can vote for both!) Competition will close on Wednesday morning, along with the free worldwide shipping for the new site. I wish you all good luck!
