The White Coat


Dress - Zara
Coat - Zara
Shoes - Zara (old)

Hi Guys!

I'm in a very happy mood - maybe because I've had Gourmet burger twice this week already (I'm craven you know lol), but in general things are really looking up and are getting better and better for me, and I honestly couldn't be more thankful. The outfit this week is what I call my quick and easy outfit. You can never go wrong with black and white, so I threw on this LBD before I had to pelt out the door for a meeting.

This dress is great for a warm day, and is made from a stretch rib fabric so it's comfortable for when you are doing a lot of travelling or back and forth in between meetings. Earlier on in the day I had this on with flats for a casual look, and in the evening I switched to my beautiful block heels for my Mr man to take me out to dinner. 

The white coat is a fabulous throw over piece from my favourite shop Zara which adds drama to a simple look, honestly the quality of their clothes for the price is just amazing! 

Finally ladies, if you where an outfit like this then you better walk with purpose, smile and  be feirce!
Have a good week xx :)

Summer Look Book!

Hi All!

Just Sharing my Summer look book with you - Enjoy! :)


Tuesday 25 July 2017



Crotchet Bralet - Topshop
Joni Jeans - Topshop
Flats - H&M (old)

OMG! After years of seeing Afro Punk pictures on Instagram and Tumblr, my friend and I spontaneously decided  to go to the one in London - and I'm so glad we did - I LOVED IT!
It was so refreshing to walk in and see hundreds of black folk expressing their individuality through colours, eccentric fashion and embracing their roots by rocking Ankara, whilst sporting locs, box braids and afros - needless to say I was in my element and the versatility in the shades of melanin and hairstyles brought a smile to my face.

Held at the 'Print works' studios luckily most of the event was held indoors because chile the British weather decided to open the skies and send a down pour of rain which would've been a disaster for my afro, which luckily stayed looking cute for the whole day :)

Upon arrival there were an array of stalls selling African jewellery, clothing, hand painted bags, Ankara covered stationery, shea butter (etc). One of my favourite stalls was a lovely stand of colourful greeting and birthday cards.

Some of my favourite looks of the day included this fabulous couple, who came dressed looking regal in orange ensembles looking like they just came straight out of Wakanda in black panter. My other favoutrite looks were from these two lovely ladies I met, who came all the way from Holland just for Afro Punk (left).

There was literally something for everyone, whether it was a live performance from the likes of JME  ,Corrine Bailey Rae or 'The Internet', a DJ set, a live artist painting a mural, or food, it was just positive vibes all round for the entire day, everyone was lovely.

All in all it was a great day, I was actually sad when it was over, the event made me realise how important events like these are and that we need so many more of them in London. I will definitely be going to Afro punk again, next year I'm planning to go to the one in Paris, but for now the memories of Afro Punk London will stay with me. :) xxx

My Quad Biking Adventure!

Hi Guys!

Usually I'm the girliest of girls - you know - I don't like to sweat, I love to wear heels, I'd much prefer to go to the spa than do a sports day, and I stereo typically like pink (nothing wrong with that), BUT I also have an adventurous to me, which tends to come out even more when I'm on holiday. Last time I went to Turkey, I went jet skiing, to the markets & looked at waterfalls. However this time me and my sis decided to kick it up a notch and try something different - quad biking! And I loved it! :)

Admittedly it was a bit challenging at first, it was a baking 35 degrees, the organisers didn't provide goggles so all I had were my sunglasses to shield my eyes from the blasts of sand that kept going into my face, and I accidentally careered off the track at one point and went flying! (Literally!). Luckily I was fine, and once I got the hang of it I felt like I was such a boss lol. I was thinking to myself girl you should be in tomb raider.

After racing around the tracks, going round lots of bends and arching my back to vogue for the photographer so that my pictures came out cute, it was time for a ride along the beach and a quick dip in the sea, which I was soooo grateful for because it was piping hot!

Overall it was amazing! My top tips to anyone going quad biking in another country are:

1.) Where clothes you don't mind getting dirty, because your clothes WILL be full of dust afterwards
2.) Make sure you bring your own goggles just in case, sunglasses will only protect directly in front of your eyes, but not underneath or the sides of them.
3.) Where a lot of sun cream, there is no shade at all when quad biking which lasts about 2 hours so keep your skin safe
4.) Bring a hair band to tie your hair up
5.) Smile for the camera!
