Kente. (+ Modcloth Feature, Yay!)

Wednesday, 27 July 2011

Hey my lovelies, hope you're all having a good evening (Morning, or afternoon, wherever you are!)! :)

Just wanted to share my excitement about being featured as Modcloth Blogger of the Moment! Yay! Some of my current favourites have been found through MBM, and I was so flattered when I was approached by them to be featured! They were also kind enough to name a Dress after me! Ahh! So chuffed!

Also, here's a shot of my Outfit from an ACS Cultural Ball I attended some months back. The photos were just released, and I wanted to show you the dress and clutch I made! The shoes are my beloved Zara Court Shoes! :)

I really want to hop on my sewing machine and sew more after seeing this picture!
Do I feel a DIY post coming up? Hehe! :D ..xo

I'm so happy to have a loving family that love and care for me. I'm happy to have a select few friends who encourage me, and who are real enough to tell me how it is, but with my best interests at heart.
I'm happy to be of good health. I'm happy I have the opportunity to get a good education. I'm happy that I have Love. I'm happy that I have God.

I'm overwhelmed with the love and support that come from the people that read this blog and follow my other networks. Thanks for sharing my journey with me. :)

Just felt like I needed to count my blessings, as often, too much time is spent worrying, and it only takes a moment to remember that there are still good things in my life. xo

Nice, Mavala. ( + Half Moon Nails Tutorial)

Monday, 25 July 2011

I was doing my routine nail polish change and thought to do something a little different. I had seen a few photos of Rihanna and some others sporting this Half Moon Nail Look, and I wanted to try it. It's my first time, so it's not as perfect, but I still like it. I filmed a tutorial of how to do it, just in case you wanted to give it a go! :)

This polish is a lovely orangey/red from Mavala. I love the texture, and applying it was simple and fuss free! At only £2.99 a bottle, I'd say it's a very pocket friendly nail polish! I really like it! :)

Rust & Lace.

Wednesday, 20 July 2011

These Rust trousers are one of my recent buys (nabbed it in the Topshop sale!). I've paired it with one of my new lace beauties, with the peter pan collar. So cute! I just couldn't resist buying it! I have lots of outfits formed in my head with it already! Would you like a Lookbook featuring them? :)

Oh and guys, I haven't been soo excited about a pair of shoes since those Zara Court shoes... These Urban Outfitters Patent Loafers are my new Love! Hehe!

I know I've been lacking with the posts, thanks to that thing we call Life. But not to worry, I'm a bit more organised now, so yay for new posts! I still have to do the giveaway so keep your eyes peeled! 

Thanks for reading, hope you're having a good week!

70's Shift Dress + Leopard Print Wedges.

Saturday, 9 July 2011

I've got Strawberry legs, as Raven Symone calls it. Haha! I used to be so conscious about them, the scars, birth marks and the goddam knees! But I came to love them! They are a Perfect Imperfection. :)

Here's a dress I purchased recently from Topshop! It reminds me of those shift dresses the girls used to wear in the 70s! I paired it with these killer leopard print wedges and one of my mum's old clutches! You like?

From Me to You.

Thursday, 7 July 2011

Ooo I'm one happy bunny this morning!! I woke up to some great news! I'm going to ride this happy feeling for as long as I can! :D

Here's what I wore yesterday! This top is so me - I love polka dots! I paired it with this midi skirt I got from Mango in their sale recently. I was off to town to run a few errands and the like, and I knew I would be paying a visit to the Cinema, so kept the outfit simple and practical, but styled it up a bit with a gold watch, red satchel (I adore this!) and oxford brogues. 

Hope you're all well! :) ..xo
