I’ve been itching to let you all in on these amazing products I’ve fallen in love with recently! It’s summertime (although the cool and cloudy weather today is making me question this, sun better come out tomorrow) and holiday season too, and they are serving very well! ~ ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS “Sweets” Glow Kit | £30.00 (sourcing link!) ~ Oh and what a glow this kit gives!!! My favourite is “Taffy”, it’s so soft and warm on my skin. I apply it using a fan brush onto my cheek plain, centre of my nose and above my lips for the… Read More »

BOUX AVENUE Lisbon bikini top | BOUX AVENUE Lisbon bikini briefs Hello my loves! Welcome back to my blog. Every time I pay a visit to Boux Avenue, I’m greeted with such lovely and helpful staff and I usually end up spending a good hour or so perusing their rails for gorgeous swimwear, nightwear and lingerie. I recently went away, and I took some of my fave swimwear pieces along with me, and when I was contacted by them asking for us to collaborate, ofcourse I jumped for joy! This brand has been a favourite of mine for years. I hope you like… Read More »

7 Things I’m Loving Right Now

Life, PHOTO DIARY
June 9 2016

1. Waking up at 5 am. I’ve become such an early bird (in every sense of the phrase, and by that I mean I’m dozing off by 9pm…NO MATTER where I am! In the car, on the couch, in the Club! Lol! My friends have dubbed me Sleepy, as in the Dwarf from Snow White, and to be honest with you, I don’t mind!). I get to bed early and I’m up early! And just like the French say… “La vie appartient à ceux qui se lèvent tôt.” which in English means “Life belongs to those who rise early!” So… Read More »

Colour Therapy | Spring/Summer Lookbook

FASHION, LOOKBOOK
May 16 2016

I absolutely enjoyed creating this Lookbook. From thinking up the concept of colour therapy to putting the outfits together. I love to give all of my energy to anything I create, and it sometimes takes a little time, but I’m always happy to have you all share in the excitement of bringing these ideas to life. Amongst all the amazing things that I have been getting up to in the past couple of months, I have been taking some time every now and then to heal from a number of emotional problems I’ve had that stemmed from massive changes in… Read More »

Postcard from Mallorca

PHOTO DIARY, VACATION
May 6 2016

Just looking through my photos from Mallorca and wanting to plan another holiday! If you missed the Vlog on my Channel, here’s a photo diary of the trip! We stayed at the Hotel Astoria Playa, a lovely hotel in Alcudia. It was pure heaven. The all white decor coupled with the calm ambience made for a perfect getaway to recharge. I went with my sister Kezia and we truly had a good time. We enjoyed their delicious breakfast every morning, sunbathed by the pool and enjoyed complimentary drinks! The hosts were extremely hospitable, and I will definitely be staying there when next… Read More »

5 Feel Good Habits to Form

WELLBEING
April 4 2016

Hey everyone! So a bit of a different post to the usual fashion and beauty. As Spring is here, I know a lot of us will be doing a whole bunch of Spring cleaning, re-organising and re-focusing, and I thought “how about starting a conversation on doing all these internally too?”. And that’s where I came up with the idea of sharing 5 Feel Good Habits to Form. Here they are… 1. Walk more. Not only is it something anyone can do, it is also very beneficial when it comes to remaining present and taking in the atmosphere and nature.… Read More »

Kimono

FASHION, OUTFITS
March 26 2016

ZARA Kimono | ZARA Trousers | LIPSY Bralet | H&M Bra | OFFICE Heels This Spring, I’m edging more towards pieces that not only have an effortless appeal, but have a fluidity about them. I love the easiness of this Kimono-Trouser combo from Zara. It’s jacquard print decorated so beautifully on the fabric reminds me of those traditional Kimonos from Japan, but with a softness of feel. I thought to complement it with a lace bralet and rose detailed clutch. The shoes, not photographed, were simple minimal heels. Mind you my height meant the fabric still flowed to the ground, but I loved… Read More »
