OUTFIT | PATTERNS AND SEQUINS


Some of you may know that I work at Bestseller Wholesale, a Danish fashion company that owns several brands. One of the brands we own is called Vero Moda and of recent it has become one of my fave brands. 

It's really fun working in a hands on role for a company that has so many nice pieces that you can use to express your own style.
As time goes on, I continue to discover more about myself, what I like, what I don't like and grow into my own personal taste. It's all really fun how it all happens. Sometimes, I literally just wake up with an idea, a question or an outfit in my mind. Sometimes I actually just dream about it! (lol).

For a very long time now, I've been reading and learning about some interesting things ranging from fashion, marketing, spirituality which are all enriching my mind.
It is really good to learn about your craft but also develop your inner self. 
We are all still learning and every experience has amazing lessons that we can all learn from and I am so grateful for them all. 
I have personally grown so much already in the first half of this year and I get so excited from the thought of not knowing what is going to happen/change next, but it's pretty comforting knowing that everything will work out.

I hope you've all been well! Enjoy your day! My is competition coming soon! :P

FASHION | MALIBU RUM X SARA ULGER SS14

I just love the newly designed Malibu bottle! 

I have been seeing it everywhere in stores whist shopping around and I also spotted it at a fashion event that I recently attended. 

I was able to get a little more information on the inspiration behind the designs on the bottle only to learn that they were designed by the lovely Sera Ulger. 
Malibu Rum teamed up with the talented designer to launch a limited bottle edition range inspired by her vibrant and colorful designs.

It is so great to see Malibu once again showcasing continued support of up-and-coming British designers. Previous collaborations include nail artist, Sophie Harris-Greenslade and illustrator, Nikki Farquharson.

To celebrate the collaboration, Malibu Rum have given Sera the opportunity to design an exclusive capsule collection, which will feature the limited edition feather print and includes four structured dresses, a bikini and a swimsuit.
I really want to get my hands on her swimwear range, as seen on Mademoiselle Robot's blog post, so I can sport it on my holiday away this summer. 

* GIVEAWAY ALERT - Malibu have been absolutely amazing and offered me the opportunity to run a lovely competition for my readers! Someone lucky will win a piece from Malibu X Sera Ulger's collection so stay tuned for an upcoming post! *

PRESS DAY | A-LINE LONDON



A little while ago I received a lovely invite from the A-Line, a fashion brand based in London providing sleek women's wear. 
A-Line are all about using natural fabrics to achieve elegant yet urban inspired pieces. , so I was really excited to see their current and new collections for the following season.

I travelled down after work one evening with my best friend (They were so lovely to let me bring her along!) and I was really honoured to be able to meet with the founder Anne-Sophie Kohler, who was wearing some designs from her current collection (pictured above). 

Throughout the night there was champagne, guest appearances and beautiful treats. I also met the lovely, Annette from Hot Happenings, a fellow fashion blogger. Everyone was so lovely and it was great to unwind with some more fashion after a day at work.

Thank you Alessia from A-Line for inviting me and showing me the lovely collection!
