Rose gold is a beautiful metallic shade that I am just obsessed with! I love that the alloy looks great whether it is shiny and new, or rustic. However, I do prefer the more deeper toned rose gold.
Rose gold actually became popular in Russia during the 19th century, and was formerly called Russian Gold. It was also popular during the Victorian era, however it was not until the 1920s that the alloy became trendy with the introduction of the iconic Cartier trinity ring. (Read more about rose gold here.)
Rose gold looks just as amazing in the home as it does on. My favourite looks are pairing the metal with pastels and dark colours. The key is to keep everything simple and let the rose gold features do the talking. You don't have to make any drastic changes, simple accents here and there look great too.

Greenwich is a beautiful place to be in the summer, no wonder it is always filled with tourists from all over. There is a nice mix of old and new in the area, particularly in Greenwich cutty sark and surrounding areas. With buildings such as the Quuen's House and the Old Royal Naval College, Greenwich has a great architectural heritage and royal links.
There are many things to do, from long walks in the park, to shopping for books in independent and chain bookshops, new and vintage clothes, visiting maritime museum, cutty sark and of course the famous Greenwich Market.
Funny enough, despite all the interesting things to do in Greenwich, you will most likely find me in Gourmet Burger Kitchen, it is my weakness! But, with more time on my hands now, I will exploring more of what I would call a local treasure.
There are many events held in greenwich, especially in the summer. You too could host your own events. It has amazing transport links, a rich history and beautiful buildings. With the help of Eventbrite, you could host your own event, click here to find out more.

On Saturday, I went to the Marie Claire @ Work Live event. It was amazing! I am so happy that I found out about the event back in March and booked it straightaway. It was really inspiring to hear the women speak about what they do, especially how they started off in their respective careers and businesses. Technology was a prevalent theme, which is not surprising as it is pretty much everywhere. There was a session on the pros and cons of technology, and it was interesting to hear the different opinions of the speakers. The speakers were presenter Claudia Winkleman, (she is hilarious), Chloe Mackintosh, who is the co-founder of Made.com, Lucie Sarif of Lady Geek and Kathryn Parson of Decoded, as well as Marie Claire's Editor in Chief Trish Halpin. The summary of the session can be found here.
There were different sessions covering different topics. I decided to go to the fashion masterclass, which was sponsored by Karen Millen, how to grow your business and go from A to B - fast and CV in a social world.
Fashion Masterclass with Karen Millen
I'm in the process of launching my start up so the business session was very helpful. The speakers were Sarah Curran of VeryExclusive, Cassandra Stavrou of Proppercorn, Jenny Halpen of Halpen PR, Clare Hopkins of Balance Me and the deputy editor of Marie Claire, Miranda McMinn. They spoke about financing and growing your business, making negotiations and not being afraid to fail. There is a proper write up of the session on the website which can be found here.
There was a pop up arranged by the sponsors and partners. Of course, I had to check out the Karen Millen pop up. I loved everything! I am a sucker for simple tailored pieces with an amazing cut, and they offer just that. When I land that dream job, I will definitely investing in some of their pieces for my workwear wardrobe.
To end the event there was a session by the key note speaker who happened to be Miriam Gonzàlez Duràntez. She spoke about inspiring others, touching on equality and inspiring girls to be the best they can be. She is currently recruiting women to lend an hour of their time per year to visit a school and inspire the girls, mentoring and teaching them of opportunities available to them. You can read write up of the talk here and more about the scheme here.
Again, it was an amazing event and I left with so many goodies! I'm feeling really inspired, which is definitely a great way to start the week!
