Sky Blue and White – #OOTD

My family and I went to a wedding today. I took the opportunity to try and create a new outfit and take some blog pics. I am sporting a light blue peplum top on top of a white bodycon dress. And of course, I am still rocking my natural hair with a cute gold headband.…

A girl can never have too many shoes - or at least that's what I've been told! In my experience, some boys have more shoes than I have ever known, but that is a story for another day. The British shoe company, Jones Bootmaker have been making classy shoes in London and the rest of the…

40 RANDOM FACTS ABOUT ME

I did this a year ago and now I’m doing 40 facts to add to it. I hope you find this at least mildly entertaining. I am the eldest of four children; I have two younger sisters and one younger brother. I have a pet dog called Rolfie. He is 9 months old and we’ve had…

Three Pretty Pink Gowns

I realised that I have a lot of pink clothing, specifically pink dresses so I decided to do a mini lookbook of the pink gowns. DRESS NUMBER ONE   This dress was purchased at Romeo and Juliet couture boutique, but because I didn't purchase it myself, I am not sure of the price or the availability of…

‘Use your talents’ monologue

I wrote this monologue as part of a production at my church.     Talents. Gifts. Smarts. Forte. They all mean the excellence. The brilliance. The intelligence. Ingenuity. Of God. Placed and positioned carefully and precisely in your life. For a reason. God is not random. God is not man to be random; without reason.…

No-Foundation March – the movement

Make-up is not for the insecure girls. As a kid, growing up, I watched my mum and aunties dress up and put on make-up to look their best for church on Sunday or for an outing. At eleven or twelve I had decided that you can only be beautiful if you put on ‘powder’ or…

Book review – Leona Lewis’ ‘Dreams’

  I’m not usually a fan of autobiographies or biographies, but Leona Lewis has single-handedly changed that idea with this one book – ‘Dreams’. Unlike, other celebs, Leona didn’t fill the book with a million-and-one facts about herself and her life, she briefly outlined her story of how she began to live her dreams, hence…

Make-up: Bits and Bobs

I love make up because it gives females freedom to look how they want to and express their individuality. I know a lot of people have the perception that make up makes people 'fake' or 'artificial' and girls who wear it, only wear it because they're 'insecure'. I genuinely believe this is incorrect because make…

Acrylic nails vs Gel nails

It’s been a widely discussed and debated subject amongst the female community; Acrylic nails or Gel nails? Which one is better? Acrylic nails are false nails that are made and shaped like a real nail, out of plastic. They are bonded to the natural nail usually with glue or a cohesive, to give the illusion…

Outfit: Peplum is the way

Quick fashion post day. Peplum. Wikipedia describes peplum as a 'short overskirt that is usually attached to a fitted jacket, blouse or dress'. Couldn't have said it better myself, to be perfectly honest. Peplum is the type of fashion item that never gets out of fashion, and can be worn in nearly any weather condition. As…

I met young MP Chuka Umunna and I was inspired

So, when it comes to politics, I usually have no view. I don't really know a lot about it, although I am starting to learn. My mum is a committed member of the Labour Party. Now when I say committed, I mean committed. Like, she goes campaigning with her ‘crew’ on frosty Saturday mornings –…

Team healthy living

People say I always have phases in life when I'm obsessed with a particular thing, activity, music, artist etc for a while, then I get bored of it and move on. As sad and childish as that makes me sound, it is so true. I'm laughing because on the 25th of September 2012, I wrote…
