I believe accessories are really a distinctive sign of one’s style and personality; this is why I have many tailor-made items with my name sewed on. When choosing a bag, start by deciding which dimensions and shape are the best fit for the occasion. I would suggest choosing “bold”, monochromatic bags that can be easily adapted to any look. In addition, I would avoid matching the colour of the dress with the shoes - I’d rather go for the fresh and contemporary effect of opposites. The bag that has accompanied me in most adventures is my Louis Vuitton Keepall, which I have personalised with my initials. Fidenza Village is the perfect place to purchase bags because it offers the greatest selection of brands and provides guests with the ideal accessory with the right price.

My favourite bags are those that can stand the test of time, those that don’t go out of fashion. I love finding authentic vintage pieces that look equally as chic today. Of course, occasionally I’ll indulge in a statement piece to channel the latest trend, but I still prefer a classic that can be passed from generation to generation. I collect a variety of different styles that can be worn for different occasions, from clutches and crossover bags to oversized totes. I love Loewe and Gucci for classics that never fail.

Push sartorial boundaries with a skinny jean that’s both traditional yet defined. The tight fit draws attention to your shoes, so ensure your footwear is on point with a classic pair of converse or a leather Chelsea boot.
Clean and refined, a pair of slim-fit skinnies can be worn however you like – roll them up, stack them down or crop them at the ankle. The distressed texture and light wash works best with basics, so add a white tee and leather slip-ons for effortless off-duty cool.

Skincare investmentAs I've got older, my list of skincare concerns has not only got longer but also more specific. A generic high-street chemists’ cleanser just doesn't cut it anymore, and if there's one thing you can justify investing in, it has got to be your skin. Long gone are the days of renewing my skincare routine every month, I’m now focused on finding holy grail products that I can rely on year after year. Think skin-loving elixirs, rejuvenating masks and miracle cleansers!
The triple effectAfter a long day at the office, there's nothing more exciting than removing all the of the day's grime, jumping straight into my pyjamas and forgetting about the beauty queen I felt like at 8 am. With that said, ensuring I’ve gone the extra mile and incorporated three crucial steps (cleanse, tone, moisturise) into my regime makes such a difference to my skin. If I use a night cream, serum or oil to treat myself, I really notice the results overnight. So, 2016 is going to be all about the ‘triple effect’ – an extra five minutes out of my evening to ensure my skin gets the pampering it deserves.
Time to give backI’m going to start volunteering this year - being wrapped up in such digital, materialistic lives means we often forget there are elderly people that aren't fortunate enough to have the simple but vital love from family and friends to get by. Dedicating even just an hour out of your week can make someone’s day and I think it’s really important to show older generations that they aren’t being left behind in this fast-paced age.
