ELLE Editorial: Seasoned Traveller

August 25, 2015

I’m so excited to share my latest editorial with you, I’ve shot a lot during my 6 years as a model and this ELLE editorial for their September issue has to be one of my favourites of all time. I’m not really sure why, (besides the obviously fact that the photography, styling, hair and make up are beyond perfection) but I think it’s because of the the overall feeling the editorial makes me feel when I look at the images. I feel like I’m looking at some sort of Emma alter-ego, in a good way.

Traveling to Paris with the ELLE team was an absolute dream and I am forever grateful to everyone involved in making it happen, especially ELLE’s editor Emilie Gambade. We worked hard, we shopped and we ate like queens.

P.S don’t forget to get this month’s ELLE SA magazine to see the full story. ELLE interviews Kristina Bazan, one of the world’s most influential fashionistas,  about her dreams, goals, what inspires her and what she see’s for herself in the future.

Bag Envy

August 11, 2015

bag envy .001

After buying my first Chanel bag a few weeks ago in Paris, well actually my first designer bag, I have become obsessed with owning a second one. Problem is I simply can not make up my mind.

Above are my top six bags I’m currently lusting. Some have been on my lust list for years and others just this season. I generally opt for more neutral tones and I doubt I’ll want to be carrying around a brightly coloured handbag in 20 years time, because yes, they are timeless and I will be carrying it around when I’m forty.

Which one’s your favourite? Leave me a comment and let me know.


1.) Chloe Drew bag, €1600.20
2.) YSL Classic Small Sac De Jour bag, € 1.990
3.) Celine Box Bag, €2800.00
4.) Prada Saffiano Cuir Double bag, €2667.00
5.) Chloe Faye bag, $1154
6.) Louis Vuitton Speedy bag, $970.00

Summer Daze with My Theresa

May 20, 2015


I do love an all white story. The simplicity, the elegance, the sophistication, it’s just too beautiful. I felt like a real princess wearing dresses from Saint Laurent to Balmain complete with dainty gold jewels and sparkly head pieces.

I’ve been following Justin O’Shea, the buying director of My Theresa, on social media for some time now so was over the moon when my agency called to let me know I’d be working for the company. I had a second “insta” moment when Valentino posted one of the images from the editorial on his Instagram. It’s silly I know but come on, it’s Valentino!

If I could afford any of these pieces I would of loved to have taken home the Saint Laurent collared maxi dress and Miu Miu head piece (ft. below).


P.S You can shop the story on My Theresa right here.

The New Sporty: By Night

January 22, 2015

So on Tuesday I posted “The New Sporty: By Day” and today’s look post is a follow through from the previous: How to carry to sporty look through to the evening. If you haven’t seen “The New Sporty: By Day” yet click here.

Taking your day look to a night look doesn’t have to be complicated and time consuming. It’s often just a matter of swopping out a few items of clothing. Is this case I swopped the Chanel backpack for a slick white clutch and my reversible hoody for a tailored blazer.

What are your tips for quick day to night swops?
