Weekly round up #4 London, Blog events and eating all.the.food

Alternative Fashion Blogger Foxxtailz

Holy heck lads. What. A. Week. I’ve got so much to fill you in on from the last 7 days so I highly recommend a brew and a lot of snacks cos I think this is going to be a biggie and quite a photo heavy affair! It’s been a goodie and I’m 1000% thankful for it after my inbox being so quiet the last few weeks, things have started to pick up. This week was such a busy one it’s been freaking great to have a bit of a slow living weekend. Legit after all this food I’ve eaten this week I’m unsure how I’m going to fit into most of my wardrobe . . . . whoops! 

Work for me was short and sweet, I was only in for 3 and a half days as I made my first [I’m sure of many if it’s anything like last year] trips to London of 2019 for a couple of great events I’d been invited to as well as hanging out with my London Blog pals. Tuesday evening I headed to Eat by Chloe at Tower Bridge for the very first KOI footwear event with my pal Vicki - this is when the theme of eating all the food started, ain’t even mad about it. We were shown sneak peaks of the new SS19 collection and got to know more about the brand too all of course whilst eating a fuck tonne of Vegan food from Eat by Chloe FYI the chocolate cupcakes are INSANE. After the event was over I said bye to Vicki and headed off to meet Emilina and Kitty as I was staying over at Kitty’s that night.

Wednesday was another freaking great day. First on the agenda was heading to Farm Girl to meet Katie for brunch. I tried out the veggie “BLT” and holy wow I don’t think I have tasted anything as glorious as that. There was a whole gauc/coconut/mayo situation going on that I didn’t want to end. After we headed out to Vida Bakery down Brick Lane as I’d been bugging Kitty to take me so I could try out their freaking huge slices of rainbow cake. We were legit all over London that day - 1000% wasn’t mad about it.

Vida bakery was the dreamiest little cafe, just past Not Another Salon. Inside they had pastel interiors to die for including a rainbow stair case and super friendly staff.  The rainbow cake did not disappoint however I had to admit defeat and couldn’t finished it - you can bet your butt I gave it a good go, in my defence it was as big as my head.  Emilina came to meet us before we headed off to Gung Ho for the SS19 press day - the first event of the day. We were shown around the show room to view the new collections for SS19 before we headed over to Covent Garden for the Skinnydip event for the launch of the new Tangel Teezer collab. We only stayed at Skinny dip for an hour as it was so busy, the only picture I managed to get was a mirror selfie in the toilet [lol] I event forgot to grab a picture of my nails with the cute llama print. I had a very busy but very fun few days in London.

Even though I had eaten all the food this week, I decided I wasn’t done so on Saturday James and I headed to Wanderer food for Vegan Junk Food, we also ordered loaded fries and Mac N Cheese to share. Wanderer is in a converted church that also doubles as a music venue. Last Feb we saw Pale Waves there so when we go I always get them stuck in my head. After such a busy week I really wanted a slow weekend but to also do a bit of content creation so Sunday we spent an hour bulk shooting content and afterwards took ourselves off to Spoons for lunch and a Gin - a good balanced slow living weekend!

Other Cracking things that happened this week


  1. I FINALLY GOT BLOG WORK IN! The draught has gone and this week has been great for my blog. I’m so freaking pumped to show you the brands I’m working with, both old and new!
  2. I got invited to a blog event in Amsterdam, If anyone knows me, they know I have a huge fear of flying so the PR company very kindly agreed that I could go by Eurostar - Thank the Lord. Now I’m just waiting to see if James can come too. . . .
  3. I managed to get my hands on something from the Lazy Oaf Ester collab 
  4. I finally hit 10.1K on Instagram wahoo - took it’s sweet time

Things I’ve loved this week

  1. Sex Education on Netflix, I wasn’t too keen after the first episode but deiced to give it a chance, the more I watch it the more I love it but I do have some observations. Otis looks like a young Mr. Bean when he wears that brown suit to the dance. Where the heck is it set? And what year? Like everyone had a British accent but the school is like an American/British Hybrid PLUS the weather is always lush - that NEVER happens here.
  2. Berets. I still can’t get enough 
  3. Cream eggs. I’m supposed to be on a sugar detox but when it’s cream eggs season all plans of healthy eating go to shit
  4. Sugerdrugs skin care range, legit kept my period acne at bay that it took my by surprise when I came on.
  5. Zara bargains, I’ve tried really hard to not buy a bunch of stuff in the sales I don’t need and I think I did pretty well so far but this weekend I managed to grab James a denim jacket he’s wanted for an age for £16 from £70 and me a pair of zebra print jeans for £6. I also picked up a Devil Wears Prada sweater I haven’t been able to stop thinking about for weeks too . . . .

What I read this week

This week I’ve again only got 2 to share after finishing off Gossip Girl - mint series

  1. The secret - I didn’t even finish this. I ALWAYS finish a book no matter how bad it is but this one was awful. I hated the layout and I hated the writing style. I just thought it was a really crappy book. No rating for this one as I didn’t finish it
  2. China Rich Girlfriend, I’ve only just started this as I’d wasted my time with the secret. I Really loved the first book so I hope this one is just as good!
