SNOW...

It has been snowing non-stop here! I absolutely enjoyed the first few days of snowy London. I couldn't get over how beautiful it all looked. I went for a random walk with the parents over the weekend and my mum and dad were really excited to get their hands on my new Canon DSLR and take a few pictures of me in the snow. It was so funny watching them try to play around with all the complicated settings and having them tell me how to pose. My mum really got into it, she really thought it was a grand photoshoot, haha! I love these pics though, they did a great job. We then headed home for some hot chocies, perfect!

BLACK & GOLD

Here's a little preview of some of my recent purchases. 
My new obsession = Black Heeled Shoes and (as always) gold accessories. I've been excited playing around with them all week and I am loving combining the two colours so much. 
My favourite piece is the gold hair cuff (It's only £5 on sale in Topshop). 
I wore it to work one day with my hair slicked back into a  tight side-part pony tail and the cuff neatly clipped over the hair band. My make up was very minimal - classic winged eyeliner and Ruby Woo by MAC, on my lips.
Looking back over the week, I must say, it has been both fun and relaxing for me. I've had time to catch up on much needed sleep, read and spend time with my loved ones. 
Last weekend, I went for a night out with my lovely blogging pals, Aysha, Safira and Joanna. I forgot to bring my camera out with me that evening for pictures to show you all, (duh!) but we had such a lovely time. 
Yesterday, I went to see R'n'b star, Miguel, perform in concert with my friends in London and he was amazing (Pics are on my Instagram)! 
I sported my Gogo Phillips gold curb bracelet, gold earrings, chunky gold medallion lion curb chain, with a black peplum top, black skinny jeans, black suede loafer pumps and Diva MAC lippy. 
It's official guys... I am in love with black and gold!

BOLD LIPS


Happy new year all!
I'm so happy to be beginning a new year already. 2012 was an amazing year with wonderful experiences and achievements for me and I hope you all can say the same for yourselves.
There were so many new 'finds and obssessions' that I duscovered in 2012 and I know they will perhaps stick around for a very long time. One of them that I have definitely brought into the new year, is my little girly obsession with lip sticks. I never used to experiment with brighter and bolder colours even though I loved them, perhaps because of my confidence and the fact that I thought these colours would never really suit me. My brightest lippy purchase in 2012 was 'Ruby Woo by MAC'. But since then I have grown to realise that it's completely fine to express yourself and wear whatever you truly love, who cares if people don't like it, ey!
These are my three fave lippy's at the moment that I grown to love since my Ruby Woo epidemic lol! & I love them! There will be new lipstick additions this year and I will definitely show you all!

1. Diva by MAC - Worn on nights out with friends and sometimes in the office when I feel a lil random
2. Urban Rose by Sleek - Worn out to dinners and outings with friends
3. Hug Me by MAC - Worn in the daytime and to work applied lightly for subtle feel

MINI PICTURE DIARY



It's been a short while lovlies! I hope you all have been well. Just thought I'd post a little picture diary and update you with what I had been getting up to. December and November were great months for me. Although I was incredibly busy in the office, I was able to do so much with friends, family and network at amazing PR and fashion events and dinners with my fellow blogging friends. 


Highlights were the bloggers lunch arranged by the lovely Julie and Safira, attending Debenhams and New Look press days and celebrations on NYE with friends!

*Random*: I really love Azealia Banks new track 'BBD' ^_^

I'm on Instagram :D follow me - @ToluFashD
