My Space - Eva, The London Darling

There are some blogs that just stand out for their brilliant design and sheer prettiness. They have gorgeous pictures that is complimented with savvy writing as well as sexy plug ins. Pretty Stylish London is one of those blogs, barely a year old it has established itself as one of the leaders in fashion and beauty. Meet Eva, the London Darling who is the beauty and brains behind Pretty Stylish London.

Describe the concept of Pretty Stylish London.
I like to describe Pretty Stylish London as a yummy, sweet cupcake of a blog, with plenty of fashion, a dollop of beauty and asprinkling of dates for your diary. There's a generous helping of hotel reviews and spas. The aim is to make it 'the new Daily Candy' for Londoners and jet setters visiting the capital, with my own personal adventures thrown in for good measure.

Where do you scribe?
At home in my office, nothing fancy just a desk, chair and a couple of units. :-)

Why that place?
It's where I'm the most focused, when I come into the office, I get into work mode quicker, as long as I don't log on to twitter - big distraction!

What is on your desk at the moment?
Latest issue of Marie Claire, a couple of old issues of Vogue and Harper's Bazaar that I've kept for inspiration. A photo of myself and hubby on the big day, my trusted Blackberries and a few ciante pots of nail colours.

What form of inspiration do you have on the wall or desk ie photos, magazine cuttings or extracts?
I have a noticeboard that I pin cuttings and illustrations on, I also have a stack of magazines I keep in the bottom of my desk, some are three-four years old but I loved a particular fashion shoot or an articles so I've archived it. A lot of my inspiration is stored on my coveted apple iMac. I have folders that I drag and drop stuff from the net.

Do you keep a tidy office or are you a messy worker?
Oh I'm a bit of both, it's not so messy that I'm tripping over things, but I do have times where I'm struggling to find my keyboard!
