Backstage Antics: Closing Ceremony…

Backstage Antics...Closing Ceremony


I know these photos are everywhere but I couldn’t resist. Absolutely loved the Spice Girls reunion last night!


Bronze, Silver or Gold?

With the 2012 Olympics still in full force and happening just a few minutes down the road from where I work, I couldn’t actually avoid writing a post on it. So here it goes…

When tickets first became available I was pretty indifferent on whether I got to go or not, but since that amazing opening ceremony, I, like a million other people I’m sure, are desperate to get my hands on one. Excitingly enough, I did manage to get a taste of the action when the Cycle Road Race made its way down my road – even if it did only last about 10 seconds!

Welcome to The Style Wire. I’m Laura, a 20 something, sun seeking, style stalking, culture vulture who grew up all the way over in South East Asia only to find myself now working in London. I know! – pretty much the opposite of sun seeking – but making the move West, almost 5 years ago, has been fun, inspiring, eye opening and life changing, so it seemed to make sense for me to start documenting it all.

This blog is just a way of sharing my interests in fashion, art, design, food, travel and much more.

Hope you enjoy it! x
