WHAT I’M READING.

I’m always one to have a book on the go, all does not sit well with me if I do not have a book to read. I will read ANYTHING. Obviously I have my favourite and least favourite genres, most of the time I like reading into people that I admire or who inspire me in some way. I’m currently reading Chanel: An Intimate Life by Lisa Chaney about Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel, and it’s brilliant. Really well researched and with plenty of depth; the book is a must read for anyone interested in fashion.

It goes through Chanel’s life story, from her dire upbringing, to her love affairs and her eventual mega-success and the accompanying photographs provide a visual insight into Gabrielle Chanel’s personal life.

I would thoroughly recommend it, I haven’t yet finished it, but really wanted to mention it on my blog as it’s definitely a book that I’m so so glad I bought!

How much I adore these boots from All Saints cannot be sufficiently described with human language. Okay, perhaps that’s taking my love for them a bit too far and seeing as I’m currently writing a blog post on them, it’s pointless trying to say I can’t find any words. But I do love them, very much. They are the Bonny Cuban boots in Taupe, they’ll go with everything, last for yonks and still stay classic. So why am i hesitating you may ask? Because they also come with a £165 price tag. urgh. So close and yet so far.

Education, health and justice are all things everybody deserves a right to. Everyone.

But in certain parts of our world, this is not apparent. Women especially are isolated in society due to lack of education, poor or no healthcare and a weak male-dominated justice system. Chime For Change is an organisation focusing on the awareness of lack of women’s rights in certain areas of the world. It is a global campaign to bring together women from all around the world to empower, inspire and influence anyone who’ll listen, and they should.

The organisation founded by Gucci creative director, Frida Ginanni, along with Beyonce and Salma Hayek have come together to organise a charity concert in London named ‘The Sound of Change’ on 1st June to raise money for this inspirational cause. Held at Twickenham Stadium, the concert will feature performances from artists such as Florence and the Machine, Ellie Goulding, HAIM, Iggy Azalea, John Legend, Timbaland, Rita Ora, Laura Pausini with of course a headlining performance from Queen Bey herself, as well as other acts to be announced.

The Sound of Change will be televised globally to ensure maximum coverage and exposure. More infomation on global broadcasting will be available nearer the time. Proceeds from all tickets sales will go to the organisation, underwritten by Gucci to ensure that all proceeds go to worthy projects and causes.
