She’s one sassy chick and we love her. Kelly Eastwood of The London Chatter (or more fondly referred to as TLC) is a total babe. Raised in Kenya, Kelly rocks safari chic khaki as well as she works Matthew Williamson frocks. This playful gal is all about the fun and it’s reflected in her style. She loves a spot of personalised.. sporting everything from a Missoma engraved bar necklace to a monogrammed Dona Ida denim jump suit (at our Lucy Williams ‘North Star’ collection Launch Party). Her taste is colourfully eclectic and her blogging voice is addictive – We can guarantee genuine ROFL’ing. Kelly, a former actress, started her blog The London Chatter almost four years ago. Now a Notting Hill native, Kelly’s blog is all about her London life and fashion faves, and she has just been given her own dedicated column in Hello! Fashion Monthly, aptly called 'Kelly's Style Chat'. Always a pleasure to work with, we asked Kelly to answer a few questions on love, lust and all things Valentine’s. Find Kelly here.
What will you be doing for Valentine’s Day?
Not sure. If anyone's secretly in love with me, now would be the time to holler y'all.
What does love mean to you?
Acceptance. With a healthy dose of butterflies and back tickles.
What is your perfect date?
An adventure and some margaritas.
What advice would you give men when gifting on Valentine’s Day?
Go big, or go home... alone. Just kidding (kind of). Get up early and make pancakes. Chicks love pancakes.
What is the best advice in love you have ever received and who from?
An ex boyfriend's grandmother, who I was ridiculously fond of, once told me what was important was not that a man loved you, or wanted you, but that he cherished you - big difference.
What is the most romantic gesture you have ever had?
Being taken to Heathrow with a packed bag, not knowing where I was going for the week would be right up there. Having said that, one boyfriend brought me a cup of tea every morning we spent together which goes to show it's not always about the grand gestures, just the everyday sweetness (and caffeine.)
This chick brings major sass, fantastic chat and serious love life advice whenever we sit down for a catch up. Oh and colour. Did I mention how colourful she is? – Inside and out...
We were super excited to show Kels the new collections and so we mooched over to her TO-DIE-FOR Notting Hill pad for a catch-up over a cuppa and since we love her style we thought we better get a few snaps too! As you know, we love seeing how others wear Missoma… what pieces catch their eye, how they style it and layer it. We threw a whole load of Nexus at Kelly and she styled it up her way. Expert layering saw Kelly mash together her fave pieces. There is a special art to layering necklaces. SHE NAILED IT. Oh and seeing as her pad is just so beautiful… we took the opportunity to take a few pictures of that too!
MASSIVE thanks to Kelly for her endless love and support!
Kelly’s aptly named blog, ‘The London Chatter’ is as colourful as her and MUST be checked out. IMMEDIATELY… HERE. We can guarantee genuine ROFL’ing.
