A Day in my Life at London Fashion Week

fashion blog post lfw

I’m really quite ill at the moment – a cough-cold turned into what I think was flu which then developed into some kind of horrendous sickness bug. Throw in a few extra maladies which I won’t go into and you have a thoroughly broken-down Ruth. I feel as though my body has given up on me this week and it’s most disconcerting. I write this with a pounding head and an emergency bucket to the side of me (the cat is currently asleep in it, but it’s clean, thank goodness) and I couldn’t be less glamorous. I can barely move more than my arms so I’m doing a cheat’s post today and giving you the vlog that I made for London Fashion Week. I filmed an entire day (the Saturday) so that you could get a taste of the hectic atmosphere and the energy behind the shows.

The jumper I’m wearing above is from Gant – I borrowed it from Halpern PR’s showroom because I was freezing but you can see more of that if you watch the video. If you’re reading via email then you’ll need to click here to view the vlog.

    Hope you are feeling better today, Ruth. It WILL pass. Just surrender to it. We rush around so much these days we forget we are human and sometimes the body just says ‘enough’. Gold star to Mr. Bear! Love this vlog. Really gives an idea of the atmosphere. Great red lip too! Mxox

    I didn’t know debilitating viruses were included in the LFW goody bags. How thoughtful. Not. To hell with the blog, just take care of you.

    Just recently found your blog through Sprinkle of Glitter (loved you two together!).
    You are truly lovely inside and out. Especially enjoyed your birthday and Christmas fragrance guide vlogs. Thank you so much for sharing.
    Hope you’re feeling better soon.

    Hope you are taking proper care of yourself! I know Mr. Bear must be as upset about you being ill as the rest of us are. XX
