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.…

Jones Bootmaker Shoes Wishlist*

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…

‘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…

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…

Who do you think influences you more – your family or your friends?

So, I’d like to discuss the idea that nowadays friends and peers influence teenagers more than their families do. Is that true? And if so, why is that? I mean, surely the people who birthed you, looked after you and everything in that nature should be the people you look up to the most. I…

How to Deal with Stress in 3 Simple Steps

I’d like to think I’m a relatively calm person. I’m as calm as a teenage student can be in life, really. But, I know a lot of people who are the opposite of me and completely fall under the pressure of stress. I really know how to handle stress because I used to stress out…

Strut in Studded Collars

If you want a versatile accessory that you can wear for a night out, as well as to college, then studded collars are for you. They make a real statement, whether worn under a jumper or with a girly dress. The actual studded collar fashion trend started back in 2009 by fashion giants, Prada, but…
