I've been stocking up on maternity clothes since I was 7 weeks pregnant and now at almost 18 weeks am finally able to fit into them! I absolutely love maternity wear, pretty much everything is stretchy.

These three collections take street influences, from classic 90's hip hop style, Kawaii and the gritty London realness that is the Tube, and turn them into super cool, easy to wear, edgy fashion for men and women, that references London, New York and Tokyo style.

It's a bold High Summer look that's currently populating high street stores and designer boutiques alike, particularly in the form of holiday kimonos, but choose your weapons wisely and the pieces you pick up now will see you through next season too.

All you summer lovers out there seem to be taking over the city with your outdoor sports. Whether it's the Olympic legacy, part of holiday fitness plans or just fun with friends, everyone seems to be taking advantage of London's parks, lidos and streets to get out and get into something sporty.

From high end to high street, there are some great choices so step outside your jeans comfort zone and try some other denim styles. A shirt dress, these skate shoes and super hot denim heels are topping my wish list this weekend.

I wasn't even sure if it was real, but if it was, how did it work? Was it actually as two dimensional as it looked? How would you fit anything inside? I confess, I became a little obsessed and, as I was in the States at the time I hunted down every listed Jump from Paper stockist in New York.

I love cold, winter weather but these never ending grey skies are getting me down. Yellow is one of those cheery colours that just makes everything a bit better and brighter. Associated with optimism, happiness and sunshine, it's a great pop colour to wear right now.

The store also employs an ethical message as it is originally a charity. With 50 shops with over 20 years in charity retailing, their mission statement is to help turn aound the lives of 'vulnerable and marginalised children and young people in Romania'.

St Piece: It's All in the Print

It's experimentation that is the key to St Piece gaining so much attention in just over a year, being a varied group of artists, graphic designers and architects; they're a broad church so to speak, unlike similar studios.

Weekend Shopping: Covetable Tech Covers

With the news buzzing about WhatsApp's sale to Facebook, my thoughts turned to tech accessories. As a devoted Apple fan, I make no apologies for the extreme bias towards items that fit their products in my selection below although most pouches can also be used for other tablets, as well as in place of a regular clutch bag to pop your phone and other bits into.

As I write this I am sat by a radiator, covered in a blanket, wearing a thick jersey onesie, sheepskin-lined boots and this giant Monki scarf, and I am STILL COLD. So, it's handy I've been busying myself with finding new fashion pieces to root out this weekend.

From Dolce and Gabbana's big cat bike to bracelets that bite, we're thinking all things animal on the accessories front this fall. Spotted on the Fall/Winter 2013-2014 runways, we saw Burberry keep it classic while Versace gave stripes and spots a multicoloured make-over.

Manners maketh the man, or so the saying goes. You could probably get by without them but, even if you were perfect in every other way, ill manners would mean you wouldn't get very far. I believe the same is true of accessories; they maketh the outfit.

If I learnt one lesson from travelling the world, it was just how unpredictable the weather can be. It didn't matter where we were either - the rain and thunder seemed to follow us around wherever we went.

I'd never thought about ankle accessories as actually being a 'thing'. Of course they are. And, whilst you can easily go DIY, my favourite range is one by Wolford who bring out gaiters (accessories which can be worn around the ankles or wrists) every season.

On Time, and on the Ball

What makes us buy what we do? The product itself, or the strength of the brand that it comes from? The answer of course is the influence of both. It is in our nature that we warm to a brand that tells a story and we can relate to. We also do this if it appeals either in an aspirational way, or to the benefit of our lifestyle.

For those uninitiated into the world of tailoring, it can seem rather intimidating. There are so many 'rules'. Everyone has an opinion; friends, colleagues, family members, even random people on the street. Whilst there is plenty of scope to get it catastrophically wrong, it's easier than you think to get it right.
