Chilled Evening

July 17 2013

I’m sprawled across my floor with a bunch of chilled things to do this evening! Cleopatra is playing and I’m admiring Miss Taylor’s costumes and makeup… can we just have a moment to appreciate this amazing movie?  I’m also flipping through this month’s InStyle and grabbing so much inspiration! I was reading an article about colour and I began to think how fun it would be to incorporate more of it into my wardrobe and makeup looks! I’ve become so comfortable with my go-to classic black/white – with a pop of red 😉 – palette and even though I loooove… Read More »

Little White Dress

June 15 2013

ZARA Dress / ZARA Heels / H&M Clutch / RIVER ISLAND Watch / H&M Rings I attended a garden party on a roof terrace in Covent Garden yesterday, along with a few other YouTubers and Bloggers! With cocktails, delicious sandwiches and cupcakes, there was a lot of fun to be had! The theme was Secret Garden so I chose to wear this beautiful dress I’ve been dying to wear ever since I purchased it. It’s flowy and girly and I felt like such a little lady in it! I paired it with some red heels and a black clutch. Black,… Read More »

Camera Play

March 8 2013

What better way to test out my new setup for filming and photographing my tutorials by just goofing around and snapping away in the process!? Haha! ^.^ Have a super weekend everyone! On my lips: Cherry Lipliner & Ruby Woo Lipstick, both by MAC. Bodysuit from Primark.

Capturing moments.

December 18 2012

We’re half way through December and the time is fast approaching, if not already here, to reflect on the past year. A lot has changed since the beginning of the year, but I’m so grateful for all the experiences I’ve had and learnt from. I’m looking forward to what the next year will bring.  My Instagram Challenge has been going well, although I must admit, it has been a real challenge: remembering to snap away in between meetings and my busy schedule, and also making sure I’ve got the right shot! Haha! But that’s what it’s all about isn’t it?… Read More »

Hello Nelly UK!

April 7 2012

Do you know what? I absolutely love to relax in my bed on a cool and calm evening like this, writing a post with the hazy sound of soul music in the background. I’m scratching my head wondering why I haven’t been doing it a lot lately! Here’s the deal, I think I’ve been caught up in other social mediums that I’ve forgotten how beautifully therapeutic it is to just write a blog post…sort it out Shirls! Anyway here’s what I got up to on Thursday evening! I was invited down to the marvellous W Hotel in Soho by’s… Read More »

Mellow Yellow

December 27 2011

London at night is beautiful. I find myself on occasion, taking long strolls through the city as if I were visiting for the first time, getting lost in all the wonderful scenery and architecture. Lots to photograph for sure! I was born here, and I’ve known London all my life, but I feel like there are still places to be discovered, people to see, and great experiences to have… I got this yellow dress from Topshop last week, so flowy, so silky, so lovely! I adore it. Really loving the pops of colour at the moment. Getting quite tired of… Read More »

Summer Afternoon, Photo diary.

August 1 2011

A beautiful summer’s afternoon, with a cloudless sky and the sun shining as bright as ever, spent with amazing people.. My sister Kezia, my friend Titi and I spent the afternoon at Hyde Park yesterday, just soaking up the sun and having a jolly good time. Titi brought along her awesome home made cocktail and we enjoyed it with snacks, while jamming to Kezia’s impressive music playlist. Each song brought with it memories and we talked for ages about them. It was lovely. Hope you had a good weekend too! xo What I’m Wearing Top : H&M Skirt : Topshop… Read More »
