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 »

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 »

Paris Je T’aime

PHOTO DIARY
March 6 2016

What’s only a train ride away from London, dotted with beautiful buildings, croissants and as they say “Capital de la mode”? Paris, duh! 😉 My friend Abi and I took a little trip across the channel to rediscover Paris and its beauty, and ofcourse to exercise our palettes and get a spot of shopping done.  Although I’m a heavy planner, I do love these spur of the moment trips from time to time, they remind me to make the most of my youth, flexibility and independence, and as Abi and I were saying, a time a will come were it… Read More »

My London Fashion Week Diary

FASHION, PHOTO DIARY
February 28 2016

Hey my lovelies, its been a while. Don’t worry I haven’t neglected you guys on this space, I’ve been away doing lots and lots of stuff but its good to be back blogging again after organising myself and putting a few things in order! What better way to kickstart and get some inspiration other than at LFW? It was fun this time around! I got to attend three shows and hangout at The Apartment (a central hub where I met fellow bloggers, brands and industry heads) in between. Here’s a little photo diary of my highlights this season! .:: Day 1 ::.… Read More »

Let’s catchup

Life, PHOTO DIARY
June 10 2015

I’ve been doing a lot more posting of pictures on my instagram, you know sometimes when you just want instant pictures to do the talking. I missed the little photo diary compilations of my favourite insta-posts, so here’s one today. I’m hoping to return to that point where sharing doesn’t feel so alien. One of the few cons of being the “Quiet” type*, you can get to a point where you feel trapped behind your silence, you forget what it’s like to be openly expressive and care free, not just with your opinions, but your creativity too. I want all that… Read More »

My Hair, Beauty & Style Secrets

October 26 2014

 Hello lovelies! So I thought it’d be fun (and hopefully helpful) to make this video, as I’ve discovered so many tricks that have been working so well for me, right from hair styles through to bras that work perfectly with various garments! I also had a little camera play, hence the shots! 😉 My top is a gorgeous number from Reiss. It reminds me of a dress that Beyonce wore to an awards show recently… white, lace, elegant…what more could you want? I hope you enjoy the video!  

Sometimes Phone Pics…

PHOTO DIARY
August 6 2014

I love that I can achieve such great shots with my little old iPhone! As much as I love to carry around my big DSLR, sometimes it’s more practical to have my phone on hand to capture those instant moments for my instagram and other social media. As I write this post, I’m sitting on my floor, in a pair of paint cladded leggings and tee! …I’ve been painting! Planned extensions and redecorations underway of my home, as well as a new home office. As you can imagine I’ve been running helter-skelter trying to find bits and pieces to fit… Read More »

L.A. Photo Diary

LA, PHOTO DIARY
July 17 2014

The last time I posted was right before I jetted off to LA, and boy that was a WHILE ago. If you follow me on Instagram or my Vlog Channel you’d have seen little peaks here and there into my trip, which was awesome. I spent the most part of it resting and just basking in the sun we get so little of here in Britain. I also took the liberty to slow down a little on vlogging/blogging after my week of YouTube events and networking. Shopping in Hollywood was amazing, beach days out in Malibu were relaxing and I… Read More »

It’s been one heck of a busy week and I’m planning on having a weekend with nothing but relaxation, catching up on my favourite blogs and a bit of netflix. Oh yes, the good life. Hope you have an awesome one too! 1. New Nudes. 2. Clean Bedroom = Happy Shirley! 3. I keep an inventory of all my lipsticks… soo many, so I don’t buy them over again by accident. 4. Nude… Read More »

I’m sat here editing some footage for my YouTube Channel, and I thought, hey I need to check in with you guys! How are you all? So, where do I even begin? It’s been a whirlwind of ups and downs this January (January Blues?). I’m currently riding the up wave! So yay! Lol!I’m working on some amazing content for my channel (and blog), been in and out of meetings and studios since mid-week last week and all I can say is I’m super excited to share some amazingness with you guys very soon. But, the start of the year wasn’t… Read More »
