The White Stripes.

(And The Blue Stripes…)

A veritable wardrobe staple, and clear classic, the button down has a place in everyone's wardrobe no matter the age, shape, size or gender, and I think it's one of the best things to throw on when you're in a wardrobe conundrum because it's so easy to dress up or down with the help of acessories. Today's particular look is very much a dressed-down-i'm-running-around-central-london-help look, with the classic shirt, this one a bargain that I picked up in H&M during Easter, and my favourite jeans EVER, The high waisted American Apparel pair, that give even the rare black girl with an ironing board butt, a perfectly peachy toosh.

Wednesday, 20 July 2016

Hello! Hello! I hope you're all enjoying the rare glorious sunshine we're having right now, I'm currently melting as I type this and desperately trying to cool down with ice cream and cold coffee. Onto something exciting though! I've collaborated with Three to present a Rose Gold iPhone SE giveaway, hooray! As a veteran iPhone user and proud apple addict, I can truly say that my iPhone is my right hand man. Everything and I mean everything i need to keep my day running smoothly is on there; from iBooks to Instagram, from UNUM (R.I.P Vscocam *sob sob*) to E-mails, everything is on there.

An Introduction To: The Afro Hair & Skin Co.

"To Bloom, Flow & Flourish…"

I e-met Ibi Meier-Oruitemeka, a few years ago after doing an interview on her blog, and I distinctly remember her excitement regarding her project in creating hand crafted, organic and natural products with UK based and locally sourced ingredients. I was just as excited as she is, as it seems there aren't as many hair options over here in the UK as they are in the US, particularly in regards to more natural and hand made products. A few years, a lot of hard work and some incredible branding later, The Afro Hair & Skin Co. was born.

The New Classic.

The new classic - Dress wise, not Iggy Azalea wise. I've become low-key OBSESSED with the idea of some sort of capsule wardrobe, don't get me wrong, I'm not about to part with my kitschy vintage jumpers just yet, but there is something so… clean about having a de-cluttered wardrobe filled with items that can be interchanged day in day out, and worn with other things with ease, irrespective of the weather. It feels like you're getting more value for your money in the long run, and I think it allows you to have a more 'refined' sense of style, forcing you to think quality over quantity. I am a classic dresser for the most part anyway, and try my hardest not to be swayed by too many high street trends (anyone remember the American Apparel disco pants and the Jeffrey Campbell Lita's? - Total blogger trend buy's for me!) Any dress that is of midi length and  nips in at the waist, will forever be a staple in my wardrobe and I am particularly keen on The Shirt Dress, having worn it layered in Winter, and  with a colourful head wrap in Summer, it is simply a staple and a true classic in my wardrobe, and the Sophia shirt dress is right up my alley with it's a - line nipped in at the waist fit, and it's short sleeves, perfect for a light cardigan in Spring, or a heavy vintage jumper with mustard tights and some boots in the colder weather...

She Loves Dresses...

Thursday, 23 June 2016


And so do I!

I love the internet. For providing me with hours of silly entertainment via Buzzfeed quizzes, videos of cats backflipping, and of course connecting with people from all over the globe. And one connection in particular stands out, because I've seen a blog friend grow and blossom into an incredibly talented designer and seamstress and it's so nice to see people do what they are truly passionate about. Jenny, also known as 'She Loves Dresses' is brilliant because she champions diversity in her brand and is aware that women come in all sorts of sizes, colours, shapes and heights and works with these to her advantage! I love to see others do what they are truly passionate about, and support them in whatever way I can #GIRLBOSSESUNITE, and only since doing little bits and pieces of my own freelance work have I realised how incredibly stressful working for yourself can be! So hats off to Jenny and so many others who are working so hard to provide quality, handmade pieces <3
