SICK AND NOT THE GOOD KIND

This isn't just any sick bag. It's a classic white, disposable M&S 'sick sack' (doesn't the word 'sack' make it ten times more stomach-wrenching?). You only get this bad boy if you happen to vomit up your guts in M&S. The first aider actually came into the cubicle with me and then led me to the taxi rank. Marks & Sparks = awesome customer service.

Here are some updates before I do a MONSTER POST with all my new clothes (there are lots):

1. You may have gathered this, but I am bed-blogging thanks to a nasty sickness bug I contracted a couple of days ago. I am consequently green of face, sans make-up and certainly not bloggable. I'm also missing the Drapers party tonight. Sucks.

2. The other day I thought I saw a baby carrying a tiny Louis Vuitton bag but it turns out its mother was carrying both it and a tiny Louis Vuitton bag. Still, creeped me out for a good ten minutes.

3. I bought a leopard print coat and red skinny jeans. I intend to wear this AS SOON as October hits with a beehive and lots and lots of black kohl. I wannabe an Isabel Marant girl.

4. I still haven't tried falafel - is that weird?

5. My latest purchase? A cream, cable knit jumper from Topshop that Ali McGraw would have totally worn in Love Story.

Now, YOUR turn.

London is hot. I write this in a heat-induced delirium (might also account for the trippy photos). Tried to find something remotely interesting to say but my brain is fried. It's too hot to cook or even move but I managed to muster up the energy to open a can of peaches in syrup. YUM. Now I'm listening to Nuttin Nuh Go So on repeat.

Oh yeah. I'm wearing a Topshop dress, Primark bag, Talullah Tu ring, Topshop friendship bracelet, Michael Kors watch and Essie Lilacism nail polish.

MORE MARL

Yep, I busted out the sweatpants again. They look slightly clingtastic here, but I promise you that in real life they are suitably slouchy. I forgot I had this Marc by Marc t-shirt until I discovered it at the back of my wardrobe and, well, you know how I much grey marl on grey marl. I bought this t-shirt when the Marc Jacobs shop opened on Mount Street. I ran along with my small change and could only afford this sweet tee. No regrets.

I know what you're thinking. And yes, that is Nouvelle Vague polish and a Chanel tattoo - I am a tween in a 23 year old body.

A VOTE FOR ME IS A VOTE FOR...CHANGE?

There once was a girl called Natalie who dreamed of going to Paris... Twirling around the Eiffel Tower, skipping down the Left Bank, dancing along the Champs-Élysées... Years went by and at the ripe old age of 23 she found herself no closer to her beloved Paris. Then along came the lovely ladies of French boutique Sarenza, who offered luckless Natalie a pair of magic slippers (some little black ankle boots to be exact) and the chance to win a trip to the city of her dreams.

But she can't do it alone... She needs your vote! It's easy - just click here and vote for me! Pwease?

WELL, LOOK WHO IT IS

Sorry for my hiatus - I have a new job which has been keeping me very busy indeed. You didn't think I was gone forever, did you? You can't get rid of me that easily.

When online shoes boutique Sarenza asked me to take part in their blogging competition, I was a little cynical - but as soon as I lay my eyes on the delicious Doddy boot by French brand Jonak, I couldn't resist. I've been looking for a boot like this since last Autumn - a cross between a Chelsea and a cowboy boots - and these fit the bill exactly. The metal toe is a bonus. It was a hard choice between the black leather and the brown suede but as always, I opted for black.

I wore my new boots to my cousin's hen party with a neon skirt and shoulder pad top I bagged in the Cos sale, plus ASOS necklace, H&M bag and finger nails painted Essie Clambake - the PERFECT shade of orange/red.

P.s. You can vote for me on the Sarenza blog from tomorrow, if you so desire...
