OSCARS 2016 - Best Dressed

Dear Readers,

Here are a selection of some of my favourite looks from the Oscars last night.  Alicia Vikander stole the show for me. Her elegance and class was incredibly endearing and the yellow of her dress suited her complexion so well. Vikander has a distinctly gentle nature and is definitely an actress to watch in 2016.
Alicia Vikander - Custom Louis Vuitton


Margot Robbie - TOM FORD
Emily Blunt - PRADA


Charlize Theron - CHRISTIAN DIOR


Jennifer Garner - VERSACE

Jennifer Lawrence - CHRISTIAN DIOR HAUTE COUTURE

Leo & Kate - RALPH LAUREN

Rachel McAdams - AUGUST GETTY

Saoirse Ronan - CALVIN KLEIN
Stay Sweet,

Mobile Journalism Assignment - 'With Love' Store in Billingshurst

Dear Readers,

It's that time again when you get to see my (slow) progress and witness my newest mobile journalism piece. As journalism becomes more dependent on the use of mobile technology, it is now a key part of the digital module for my course. 

So sit back, relax, and watch my attempt at a short 2 minute sequence of mobile footage.


As our assignment only required us to make 2 minutes of film, I thought it a shame and such a waste that I couldn't honour Gilly and her business With Love. I believe very strongly in supporting local businesses and so it felt right to me that I should post the full version for you all to watch. Again, many thanks to Gilly for offering up her time and lovely company for the making of this film.



Important Information:
With Love Address: 
82A High St. Billingshurst, RH14 9QS
Phone: 01403 780584

Stay Sweet,

Alice xx

The William Bray - Review

I was slightly skeptical upon arrival at The William Bray in Shere. I had eaten at the restaurant before and had previously enjoyed the experience. Since that evening, the Bray has changed hands and so my attention drew to whether or not the service and overall dining experience would differ in any way.

However, as soon as I walked through the doors, my apprehensions soon disappeared. Stripped back to minimalist warm mahogany furniture, the tables lay randomly within the dining area of the restaurant where endearing photographic images graced the walls.  

Quickly our drinks order was taken and bread was put on the table - something very few restaurants still do free of charge.

The service was impeccable and the staff were very welcoming and friendly. As it was my Dad's birthday he was given a complementary desert where the head chef came out and shook his hand. 

Overall the experience had the perfect balance of ambience and hubbub of kitchen staff and talkative voices from the low-lit tables.

Stay Sweet,

Make Do & Trend : Monochromatic Nature

Dear Readers,

I wanted to talk about a recent trend that I have seen slowly emerge into magazines and new advertising campaigns across the fashion stratosphere over the last few months. As the prospects of summer are now in our sights, high street and designer fashion lines across the country have been injecting Spring and even Summer pieces back into their stores.

This trend is earthy and warm. It invites us to imagine visions of deep orange toned safari plains and natural animal prints. Over the past year, tan and beige have become the new black; its effortlessness is here to stay. So when you think about what colour palette you choose for your new Spring/Summer wardrobe, think of one trend to embrace:
