Chasing the primary colours of Primrose Hill

Primrose Hill is a prime location to watch the London city skyline. We decided to make the most of the day light saving this weekend when the clocks were forwarded by an hour to allow for some more sunshine, atleast according to our clocks. So we thought to discover the primary elements of nature in London by exploring this famous and popular North London neighbourhood.

Musing in the Mews

Why do some leaves turn red during autumn? Is it because they are angry at the prospect of an incoming chilly winter soon precipitating their decoupling from the mother trees?

A New Peacoat

One of my favorite things about the inevitable cold of winter is that I get to treat me to a new coat to warm me up, every year. So, it’s my 8th year in London meaning this Peacoat is the 8th coat in my wardrobe.

Welcoming the Chinese New Year of the Sheep

The future ahead is not bright. It is actually red and a very bright red. Because red is the colour of China, the Chinese flag and one of the luckiest colours used in all festivals and important events in the Chinese world. Team Onetimefashionista is fully on board this emergence of the red horizon on the anvil and I had been enriching my Mandarin language arsenal for a while now in a bid to conquer China very soon with words ofcourse. So I got myself enrolled with GoChinEasy Academy in London to attend regular Chinese classes to formalise my immersion into zhong wen. We have a meetup.com group which arranges from time to time, social events and tours around London with a touch of Chinese in almost everything. The latest was a dinner and a walking tour around China town to celebrate the arrival of the Chinese New Year of the Sheep.

Winter Outdoor Work-out Wear

My fashionistas, going for an outdoor run or brisk walk in your local park when it’s nearly 5 degrees outside might not seem like your idea of a quality time together with your partner or a friend on weekends. The treadmill offers warmth, but exercising outdoors breaks up the monotony of the gym, increases calorie burn, and can also help performance increase. For the same reason, last Saturday, my beautographer and I decided to skip the gym in the morning, instead we chose to brisk walk in the nearest park to spend a beautiful sunny Winter morning together. It is important that you are dressed-up right when working out outdoor during Winter season. This post featuring how I’ve dressed up for walking in the park on a cold yet sunny Winter morning and here I’m sharing few cold-weather tips for exercising outdoors, and you’ll find that Winter workouts aren’t as daunting as you think.

Lets Talk Fashion Blogging at the London Bloggers Meetup

On 1st of December Monday the team Onetimefashionista  attended the London Bloggers Meetup at Big Chill House in London Kings Cross area where the topic in focus was ‘Telling a Fashion Story Through Blogging’. It was the first of its kind that this Meetup group arranged something on Fashion Blogging and we must say they were hugely successful. Attended by some 20-30 bloggers and enthusiasts who braved the December chilly evening to descend at the Big Chill House (appropriate name indeed) to share experiences on fashion blogging. The good thing was that bloggers from other disciplines such as technology, lifestyle, food etc. also joined the forum to hear out the fashion bloggers.
