I love french restaurant group Aubaine, so when they asked me to collab with them on a limited edition fashion week cake I was like obviously yes, please, thank you, awesome! It was difficult at first..so many cake visions flashing before my eyes.
I mean there was just not enough cake in my life..
So it started with tasting and ideas. I was first thinking a raw food cake, then a friend pointed out no thats wrong and silly. ( Sorry Planet Organic, I still love you) so then it had to be chocolate. But with a kind of light fruity edge. So then the Aubaine chef says in a french accent ‘Passionfruit oui?’ passionfruit- obviously! So enter the flourless, chocolate, passionfruit cake! Complete with crystal diamonds ( owning a jewellery e-commerce company and all i had to get some embellishment in there somewhere!) this light humble, slab of deliciousness you need to try once in your life!
To New York’s latest hot spot, Bodega Negra last week for my 23rd Birthday, where a few close friends braved the snow storms to come celebrate with me. We delved into frozen margis and their next level guac. Im a big Bodega fan in London so when a friend mentioned they just opened at The Dream Downtown I had to check it out and where better to bid farewell to 22 than my favourite Mexican joint. @PiersHA, @MarissaMontgomery, @PGDip @SerenaSuitcase and more dear friends all came and partied and munched away on the delcious steak tacos and out of this world tuna.
But by far the best bit was the melting chocolate orb, this amazing dessert doubled up as my bday cake, with the melting white chocolate dome revealing a delicious fondant inside. HELLO!
THANK YOU @BodegaNegraNYC
I arrived in freezing but sunny metropolis of NYC yesterday for fashion week. A packed few days ahead of meeting new jewellery designers for MYFLASHTRASH.COM seeing some shows and catching up with friends.
So to Gotham Hall Last night for the first event in my diary the Peter Pilotto for Target launch. This amazing collab is full of the cutest shorts, crop tops, dresses, palazzo pants basically everything you need for your summer wardrobe. TO DIE FOR.
1) Models posed on this rad digital installation, with Pharell’s HAPPY blasting out
2) There was a ridiculously amazing Marie Antoinette style buffet complete with full pies. No one dared.
3) Instead people like to eat Iphone Cases with cute burgers on them

4) The venue was incredible, constructed in 1922 as the HQ of The Grenwich Savings bank is like a beautiful art deco amphitheater.
5) Everyone looked cute and Harley wore a dress with eyes on it which was like NEXT LEVEL cute.
