OUTFIT | CUTE LIL MINI


I love this cute little mini skirt. It has a lovely Christmassy touch with all its metallic detailing and although I hardly ever wear skirts, I couldn't let this one go. 
I'm really into simple and minimalistic colours at the moment, so I paired it with a comfy knitted jumper. I've had these boots for a very long time, they’re from eBay. They were originally featured in my “Black & Gold” blog post a while ago.

I love this outfit because it’s so comfortable and versatile, as you can wear it in the night and the day. Don’t worry; I added some winter layering pieces to stay warm :-)

I was caught off guard in the last pic! Ha, I'm not sure what I was doing but hey! Thank you to the photographer :D

HAUL | MISSGUIDED'S PEACE + LOVE COLLECTION


"Peace + Love captures the art of beautiful simplicity. Confident and knowing in essence, its clean aesthetic is evocative of peace. It's physical nature constructed with a higher premium and assembled with love. Each item is limited edition and exclusive to Missguided. Introducing the re-birth of the Peace + Love collection"

Missguided have launched a brand new capsule collection just in time for Christmas period and I absolutely love every single piece!
I particularly love the minimalist colours used and beautiful silhouettes each piece creates. Each piece is named after a top super model and evokes a sense of simplicity.
The overall collection gives off a very unique & masculine but chic aura and I couldn't wait to experience some garments one on one.

I decided to order two of my fave pieces from the collection after drooling over them for some time.
I chose the "Tor Leatherette Bralette" and the "Daria Loose Fit Jumpsuit" in Matte Grey. I was also able to get Free Next Day delivery which was an awesome plus*!
When I received the items I was very surprised and pleased with their quality. It is evident that the pieces are indeed made with higher premium materials and constructed with true love.

I can't wait to style each piece! Do you guys have any suggestions for some pieces that I could use to complete an outfit with what I bought?

OUTFIT | SILENCE IS THE SLEEP THAT NOURISHES WISDOM


Hello everyone! How have you all been? I hope that you all enjoyed your weekends.

I'm so excited to be blogging once again on FM, it's been a little while. I know I've been very silent on here but I do look forward to sharing a few bits on here with you!

It was always on my mind to update my blog a lot sooner but I never ever got round to it (naughty). It's crazy how the months have just flown by! What have you all been up to?

Just a little update for you all; although I've been silent, I've been learning A LOT! I've been planning a few exciting ventures, attending great lectures/events, learning how to speak Mandarin, whilst working full-time in my new role as a Marketing Manager for a B2B company (Business to Business). I must say, the past few months have been very fun. I'm much more excited to see what next year has to offer.

Last week, I also attended a press day event for the new on-line brand "Cage City" (read more here). It was so great to meet the team, take some pics and learn more about what they represent.

I also did a little bit of a haul (post coming soon) and found this holographic clutch in Toppers! I know it's looks a little Sci-Fi but I just can't get enough of it. It was only £15 so I grabbed it straight away.

I have some great posts coming up for you all BUT what would you guys like to see more of on my blog? Perhaps your ideas can inspire more posts!

PRESS DAY | CAGE CITY AW13 & SS14


I was so happy to receive an invite to attend the press day for the new on-line store, Cage City last week. I had seen them on Twitter and I looked forward to learning a little more about them.

Cage City are a brand that represents our inner young and ‘stylish free spirit’. They showcase the best in one off, vintage and handmade clothes all designed by up and coming creative designers .

The event was held in Charing Cross in the Underground Galleries. The location really reflected the brand and the designers collections perfectly. The team were extremely friendly, I met with Lois who showed me through the collection and explained more about the brand.  They had both their AW13 & SS14 collections on display for us all to look through and take some pics. I loved the quirky twist that all their pieces had and I was able to pick out a few that I liked (photographed).

There was so much to do like create your own custom beanie hat, get your nails painted with cool nail decals and of course have a few drinks & mingle. 
I spent a (little) while helping myself to their vintage-style pick and mix sweet selection (Typical Tolu). Who remembers Fizz Wiz dipping lollipops in the picture above? I used to love these! They also gave me a lovely goody bag which had some cute bits and bobs inside.

Here are 5 items that I have picked from their site that I would definitely rock. Click to see what they look like - what do you guys think?

1 Going for Baroque Jumper  by Mink Pink
2 Galatica Dress by Style Stalker
4 Frontin Maxi Dress by Style Stalker
5 Triple Swirl Shirt by Evil Twin

Visit their website at: CageCity. Let me know your feedback :-)

OUTFIT | STAR GALAXY


This dress is super cute! I love the print and the cut and guess where it's from? Topshop (obviously!)
As you all know, I have an unhealthy obsession with Topshop, especially their Tall range.
I got this in a size 10 and it was perfect. The weather has been perfect for dresses and I'm so happy that we have actually had a wonderful summer!

With Autumn soon approaching, it's made me realise that the year has gone by so fast! There's so much that I've achieved this year but I'm determined to clear my bucket list, so I've been working away at that!

On top of that, I'm already thinking about London Fashion Week and have recently been contacted by a few companies, so I'm very excited to attend and take some pics for the blog!

Hope that you have all been well!?

OUTFIT | SHARP AS A KNIFE


I loveee this bright “skort” ("Skirt/Short") piece from Zara! I’ve seen images of it floating around on the blogosphere and I really liked its clean lines & unique cut. 

 I’ve only seen it in two other colours (White & Blue) but I loved the orange. It was also very reasonably priced and I was really surprised! I paired it with my knitted jumper that I got from my last holiday to Portugal, for a lil bit of texture.

I think I’m doing reasonably well with my ‘wear more bright colours’ challenge that I set myself ha!

This week has been rather fun for me, I’ve started at my new job as the manager of marketing and advertising for a really cool brand. It’s been great so far! The dress code is smart but with a casual/stylish edge, so hopefully I’ll be able to buy some clothes... For ‘work’ purposes obviously! Any excuse ey? J

Hoping you are all well today!

STYLE | TODAY I WISH I WORE

Untitled #44

Stay on trend and keep it simple this summer with some cool white brights!

I am really loving white pieces at the moment, particularly white shoes. They're such breath of fresh air and add a clean finish to any outfit. 
This is definitely a more of a calm, dressed down look perfect for a casual summers day. In this heat, there is absolutely no need to layer on clothes. So, I'm looking to keep it simple with the outfits and makeup this season.

I have a few more cheeky outfit posts from a recent haul. Looking forward to showing you all soon.

OUTFIT | LEATHER LOVING


The simplicity and edginess of this is black "pleather" dress I found in Toppers recently really grabbed my attention. No questions asked, I just picked it up and headed for the tills (terrible I know). 

I rarely find cool pieces that are great quality and customised to fit tall girls, so I always jump at the opportunity. It sits ever so perfectly above the knee and I really like the loose fit. It's very soft and surprisingly comfortable (even though it looks the complete opposite). 

Happy Monday! I hope you are all enjoying the beautiful weather!

OUTFIT | SUMMER BRIGHTS

Hi Everyone,
 
Hope you are all enjoying the lovely sunshine. I’m so happy that the weather has finally decided to behave itself and treat us all to some heat!
This year, I’ve been trying to come out of my little comfort zone with my outfit choices, so I promised myself to wear all of my fave pieces before the sunshine fades away.
As you all know, I do love my dark/neutral colours for outfits and make up looks. I’ve become so comfortable with these colours over the years, so I thought I’d go for a little change this summer, be brave and sport some bright/fun colours.
 
As soon as I saw these shorts, I fell in love and picked them up straight away! They’re so girly and flirty, plus they are very different to colours that I normally choose. What do you guys think? Summer brights are definitely the way forward this season! J

MAKE UP | LET'S GET NAKEY!


Hello Beautiful People!

It's been a little while! I took a little break from blogging and attending events/press-days so that I could focus on life, work and loads of other exciting things. It's is lovely to be back *happy dance*. 
I've missed coming on here to express myself, talk with you all and being inspired by so many other amazing blogs.

I just wanted to show you guys my fave make up look from my "go-to" palette of the minute by Urban Decay's Naked 2. 
I've had this little baby for a little while and I've been experimenting with loads of looks. 
But my favorite is this one that I've created. It's rather natural and has a touch of glam. This is normally the look I go for on an evening/night out with friends.

I've also been showing of my natural hair and getting used to it's beautiful (and stubborn) texture. Everyday I find myself falling more and more in love with it. I love to change my hair around often so I'm currently researching cool hairstyles for afro hair. I've been playing around with different natural hair oils and creams, which I also plan to show you all soon. 

How have you all been!? I've missed you all :D
If you guys have any ideas let me know and I'll try my best to make a blog post on it.
