Getting to know you: San Sebastian, Spain

I didn't know what to expect from my first hen-do abroad. Especially one that had a ban on anything penis related - too tacky. Our hen Abi is getting married in November and we would be fifteen women living in a three levelled Air B&B apartment a stone's throw from the beach . All arrangements were made by Abi's sister and sister-in-law to be - while we were keep in the dark to enjoy the surprises.

Boy was the entire trip full of one beautiful surprise after another. San Sebastian itself is a coastal gem on the Bay of Biscay in Spain's mountainous Basque Country. It's known for it's beaches Playa de la Concha and Playa de Ondarreta, framed by a picturesque bayfront promenade and world-renowned restaurants with local wines and bite-size regional specialities.

Cosmopolitan's #Fashfest Catwalk Show

I've been a busy bee at BrandAlley of late working on our partnership with Cosmopolitan Magazine and their #Fashfest catwalk event. Meeting out blogger guests Andreea from Dreaming of Chanel and Elena from Eat, Wear, Travel - we dined on lemon chicken skewers and mini fish pie before heading down to the main event area for apple vodka cocktails and photobooth fun finally joining our team at our table for the live catwalk show.

BrandAlley owned the catwalk with their City Slicker trend, styled by Senior Fashion Editor at Cosmo, Sairey Stemp. Sairey wanted to highlight the designer bag and sunglasses offering at BrandAlley in a sophisticated and smart way and we were thrilled with the results.

See more pics from the event below, what was your favourite look from the show?

Gold Photo Walk for Children's Cancer Awareness

I recently spotted on Instagram a bunch of creative people were organising a charity walk from West to East London, while raising awareness of childhood cancer. I love it when an online community comes together, especially for a good cause - so I decided to get involved.

Using the hashtags #goldphotowalk and #showyourgold, all participants were encouraged to wear yellow and gold to highlight the cause, a colour which is a symbol for childhood cancer awareness throughout the month of September.
