TOPSHOP Jeans, Tee & Jacket / ASOS Heels / ZARA Bag / BANANA REPUBLIC Sunglasses

Just the other day I was thinking how i've reduced my wardrobe to the bare basics and the colour scheme that flows through is that of black, white, grey and neutrals. I like it this way, for now. I feel like as time goes by (and as the season changes), I may pop some colour here and there. But in all honesty, I can only do colour in small doses. I feel too loud when I wear too much of it, so it'll only be on those days when I want to make a statement with my outfit. But for everyday, I'm cool with keeping it fresh and simple.

Here I'm wearing a pair of ripped skinnys, a trusty tee, threw on a grey leather jacket and pulled everything together with my current favourite heels. Isn't this crocodile pattern leather bag (new buy!) just gorgeous?!

ZARA Leather Trousers / H&M Shirt / ASOS Heels / ZARA Bag

Well well well, the month of March zoomed by so quickly and it feels like just yesterday I set myself my YouTube challenge (for those of you who aren't familiar with my YouTube channel, I set myself a challenge to upload three times a week), and boy what a challenge it has been. That also meant that I had to sacrifice blogging time to filming and editing, which in itself is no little task, but one I do enjoy. I couldn't be happier that all the hard work is paying off, and as I mentioned on Facebook the other day, positive results are flowing! I have so many exciting projects coming up, and you'll all be in on them soon.

I am looking forward to blogging again, because in all honesty I've missed it. Now that I have a new YouTube schedule (1-2 times a week),  I'll have more time to blog. I'll probably also post a round up or photo diary at the end of the week, but I wanted to get in the swing of posting my outfits first. :)

So today, I thought I'd go for an all black outfit. I went out to lunch with a friend of mine and mooched around the shops a little, so thought it simple enough for this occasion. I love these leather pair of trousers, I usually have trouble finding a good pair, but these fit me perfectly!

What have you all been up to? 
Hope you've had a good weekend.

TOPSHOP Jeans & Jacket // H&M Tee & Ring // LOUBOUTIN Pigalle Heels // DOROTHY PERKINS Clutch // NEW LOOK Sunglasses // RIVER ISLAND Watch

White Jeans and I have become very good friends. I remember a time when I absolutely hated how they looked on me, but it wasn't until I found this pair, that I began to fall in love with them.
They're a nice remix to my classic black ones, and perfect for those days when I want to do neutrals.

Today I paired them with a simple grey boyfriend tee, and one of my favourite jackets, this faux fur gem from Topshop. To pull everything together, I chose a pair of nude pumps.

A beauty tip I once heard is that you should carry around a pair of sunglasses, sunshine or rain, as it not only helps to protect your eye area from sun damage, but it also stops you from squinting so much in bright light and windy conditions!
Lots of squinting may mean premature wrinkles and crow's feet, er...

I've had the best seats this past week for London Fashion Week... streaming from my bed! Haha!
I wasn't too keen on all the madness (terrible winds, my weave, cobbles and heels) this time around, but I did feel like I was right there in the middle of it all, thanks to the internet!

What have you been up to?

New In

Friday, 31 January 2014


Ahh yellow. What a cheerful colour!

Here a few bits I've bought recently. I was feeling like my wardrobe needed and injection of colour! 
This lovely jumper is from French Connection's new collection. I love the ribbed detail, it's great layered with a plain white shirt, and light enough to wear in the spring!
The platform heels are a steal from Topshop's January Sale, down to £10 from £56... will be rocking these when the weather warms up a little, or maybe on a super brave day this winter! Ha!
I also picked up some makeup from MAC, a new pink lippy (loving pink lips!), highlighter for my cheeks and my favourite night out lashes! Also wanted to try the Real Techniques Starter Set, I already have the Core Collection Set which I really love, so wanted to give this one a go!
The hat you can just about see, is a new one from H&M. (Worn here!)

Tuesday, 28 January 2014


I'm sat here editing some footage for my YouTube Channel, and I thought, hey I need to check in with you guys! How are you all?

So, where do I even begin? It's been a whirlwind of ups and downs this January (January Blues?). I'm currently riding the up wave! So yay! Lol!
I'm working on some amazing content for my channel (and blog), been in and out of meetings and studios since mid-week last week and all I can say is I'm super excited to share some amazingness with you guys very soon.

But, the start of the year wasn't great for me. If you follow me on Twitter/Instagram you may have had a glimpse of how I'd been feeling. I was a little lost and unsure what my next steps would be, and felt drained. So I took some time off from everything and everyone to spend in silence and solitude. I prayed, meditated and also hit the gym. It was a really wonderful experience, and I've never felt better. I'd definitely recommend having some 'Me-time' every so often, just to recharge and listen to your inner voice that is sometimes suppressed by the many voices around you.

Also, I realised it was time to let go of toxic friendships. It can be very, very hard to, but let me tell you, at some point you have to let go of people that are weighing you down. Life is too short!
Be free to feel how you want, when you want. Do what makes you happy. Immerse yourself in things that inspire you. And don't let anyone tell you you're not allowed to.
And always be grateful for those people in your life that love you unconditionally, when you're up or down, right or wrong!
