Favourite places in London are Chelsea for lunch and Embankment for dinner. There are 2 surprising things about Robert. Firstly his height, he is 6ft 6 and a half.

Nikoleta Petrof is job hunting and would like to do something creative. When she lived in Greece she worked in Marketing and has her own blog create in marteting. One of her surprises was that she was getting married in a few weeks, back home in Greece. Her fiancé also told me she likes to dance but only in the house with no-one watching. Her favourite place in London is Oxford Street and in Greece is Santorini. She is wearing a Heel dress, T from Primark and her tights and shoes are from Greece.

Louise Carmichael and Duncan McCormick told me the story of how they met. Louise was out for the night with her sister had just had a an argument with her. Louise decided to leave and literally on the way out the door of the Electric Ballroom in Camden she bumped into Duncan who spoke to her. Normally she said she would have just carried on but he convinced her to stay, they clicked straight away and the rest is history. So not so surprisingly their favourite place in London is Camden. Louise is a Brand Merchandiser for Topshop and Duncan is a musician. His grandfather was the 1st and he says maybe the only Opera singer to come from Trinidad, probably where Duncan gets his love of music. Louise is wearing a T, belt and shoes from Topshop, her skirt is American Apparel and bag is vintage. Duncan says Louise styles him and everything he is wearing is from Topshop, except his hat, which is H&M.

Her head wrap is from Shepherds Bush market and her beautiful jewellery is from Made a fantastic fair-trade company. Originally from Uganda and after working in the fashion trade for 15 years Helen told me she would like to be Pharmacist. When I asked her if she had done anything about following her dream I was surprised by her answer that infact she is at the stage where she is applying for a post as a Pharmacist having completed all her qualifications.
