NEW LOOK Dress / H&M Rings / RIVER ISLAND Watch / BARRY M ‘Coral’ Polish
How lovely it would be to have someone to photograph the many outfits I’ve been sporting recently, outside in the open! *Sigh* My siblings are so busy these days, and I haven’t had the time to take to the streets, my tripod and remote control in hand to do it myself! But one of these days I will. For the time being, I’ll film, and update the blog with indoor shots. Hope you don’t mind too much! 🙂

I’ve been listening to this song by K. Roosevelt on repeat for the last couple of days! I just love the sound, beat and his voice! He sounds like a mix of Frank Ocean and Trey Songz! Oh and you need to turn up the bass to really feeeel it.

I’ve also uploaded a Hair Update/Review (Here) for those that have had questions about my hair, and a Makeup Tutorial (Here) for this look!

Hope you’ve had a wonderful weekend! And enjoy the bank holiday tomorrow, my UK peeps!

    Love this dress, paired with that coral nail polish! There’s just something about leopard and red/coral that go so well together!

    I just hope that telling you that you’re looking gorgeous as always, doesn’t make me sound as creepy as I feel when I say it in me head! I especially love the gold accessories. I love gold jewelry.
