Hello YouTube!

Do not adjust your screens, yes i really did grab life by her ovaries and i filmed and edited my first ever YouTube video, which I must say was a lot more fun than i expected it to be! iMovie is the bomb dot com! Anyway, here is a video of myself being slightly awkward and not really knowing what to do in front of a camera, so if you've ever wanted to put a voice to the face then here it is!

Before you sigh and say yet another YouTuber?! I solemnly swear to avoid any 'Primark Hauls' or 'What's In My Bag' videos, no shade to those type of video's as I sometimes enjoy them, but other people do them so much better than I would so I thought i would focus my channel on Natural Hair, Architecture, Art, Vintage goodies, and general vlogging (although currently work and university stuff has seriously destroyed my already lacking social life). There is a severe scarcity of Natural Haired Black UK YouTubers (I only know of FusionOfCultures, LizLizLive and Naturalbelle) I thought i'd do a few videos in regards to hair, as mine isn't particularly long, it'll be fairly easy to watch and adapt to the styles i've worn on the blog such as roller set's and twist out's. I'd also like  to document in video form, some things that are a little harder to photograph. So, if you like the sound of that, hit the subscribe button (wherever the hell it is, and leave your links below if you have a channel yourself!).

Hope you all have a lovely bank holiday weekend! I'm spending mine working *sob sob* 




Clothes are a funny thing. Monday to Friday you'll most probably see me sporting comfortable trousers, a pair of new balance trainers, and a long jacket or cardigan. But come the weekend and i practically dive head first into my wardrobe and really allow myself the simple pleasure of 'dressing up'. Although I was only going for lunch and a chingwag with Jess (who very kindly took these photos for me), I thought when on earth was the last time i threw some nice clothes on, did my hair nicely and threw on some makeup? Don't get me wrong, dressing up and looking fancy isn't some sort of prerequisite, but i'll be damned if i don't say, it's so so so much fun!

My entire outfit was very much based around my bag, which is stupendously cute if i might add. The shape, the size, how classic it is.. I was very much the heart-as-eyes-emoji when this arrived in the post, and i've taken it upon myself to wear it with every single fancy dress/outfit i've worn since it's arrival. It's love y'all. True love.

In other news, it is really hard balancing blogging whilst working and trying to get university work and portfolio's done. In fact, it is SUPER hard, so although i have a crap load of photos in my camera, i have little to no time to edit them and write up posts so apologies for my weird dippy in-n-out posting as of late! I still do read every single comment, even if i have yet to reply to them all! Give me a month or two and hopefully things will be a little less crazy, and speaking of less crazy… I should probably write an update to my 'Life After University' post, because boy do I have some stories to share!

As always, have a wonderful week, buy yourself some new lipstick, eat some pancakes, and be merry!

Sometimes in all my excitement, I'll forget i have some snaps on my memory card, and upon finding them i'll sometimes lapse into a little daydream about when they were taken, why etc, etc. I met up with Sherida a few weeks ago for a day of eating pancakes at The Breakfast Club (aka my second home), complaining about boys, intense retail therapy on Brick Lane to make up for complaining about boys, and general girl-power uplifting chats.

"That's the cool thing about blogging, sometimes someone will just send you an e-mail or a text and ask to meet for a coffee, and normally i'd follow my parent's advice about not meeting people on the internet because theres a 99.9% chance that they could possibly be an axe-murderer."

But i'm glad i took the chance with Sherida because she is 100% not an axe-murderer and she runs an incredible personal blog devoted to photography, her thoughts and splashes of colour, and it really reflects the type of person she is in real life, super bright, sunny and warm-spirited, just an awesome person to be with really. And every single time we meet up, we both leave feeling so uplifted and encouraged. Life can be a very lonely place at times, and it's a bit more lonely when you don't have many close friends irl, or a significant other, so i'm glad i've stuck by this little blog (even though i considered deleting it only a few days ago!) if not only for the kind people i'm meeting along the way.
