Elephant Parade and Give Away Time!!!

Elephant by Lulu Guiness ;)

I miss the sunshine and open space of LA but London is where my heart is. I love London for many reasons and yesterday the elephants in random places were added to the list.

Elephant Parade is a conservation campaign to bring attention to the plight of the endangered Asian elephant. 250 painted elephants can be found all over London.... I actually plan to visit them all and maybe buy a mini gold one for my new flat. I had my lunch in Soho Sq with two of them yesterday and then I came across this sexy fella on my way home in Carnaby St.

Give Away Time!!!!!!

I have a cute collection of goodies to give away to my wonderful readers to say thank you for all the support and lovely comments.
  • 'Elf' Lip Stain 
  • 'Elf' Nail Polish
  • 'Collection London' T. Shirt
  • Hair Clip from 'Bow!'
  • 'Butterfly Twist' ballet pumps.
For a chance to win follow the blog on bloglovin (or blogger if you prefer) and leave a comment on this post with your name and email address. I'll announce the winner  on Monday so you have all weekend to enter.

  9. i love elephants! they did a similar project to this around christmas time, and had an ice polar bear in trafalgar square. it melted for a week i think, and it was to raise awareness about global warming etc.
    count me in for the giveaway! :D xo

  39. It's great how you are able to incorporate everyday brands with designer brands and make it look like a million bucks! Many people often have the misconception that certain celebrities only can wear this brand, and only can wear that brand and can never be seen in 'day to day brands'. Love that you are able to use both ! and show people it is possible to still dress fantastic and mix and match vintage, high end, and middle.
    Love also how you are able to incorporate everything around you as inspiration, and show this through your style!

  61. That's really similar to the Go SuperLambanana and Go Penguins they've done in Liverpool lately, loads of fun hunting them all out in the city! When I graduated they had a "SuperLambanana BA (Hons)" and it had on the exact same robes as me, made for dead good graduation photos!
