The Girl In The Red Jumpsuit

Jacket: New Look  Sandal Heels: New Look    Jumpsuit: Wood Green 

Hey guys,

If you’re a resident in the UK then you know the different seasons we’ve been currently experiencing. One minute it’s sunny, the next it’s raining. Well luckily this day, I caught the sun and took advantage of the moment. Doing so, I wore a red jumpsuit which I must say is extremely comfortable regardless of the tight fit. It was paired with simplistic black sandal heels, and a white puffer jacket.

Unfortunately, I do not remember where the jumpsuit was purchased from but here are similar alternatives for you:

PETITE ROSALYN BANDEAU WIDE LEG JUMPSUIT

RED CREPE HIGH NECK TIE CULOTTE JUMPSUIT

RED WRAP BARDOT JUMPSUIT

WIDE LEG CHIFFON JUMPSUIT

OFF THE SHOULDER SHIRT + RIPPED JEANS

image00081TOP: Primark      JEANS: Topshop       BACKPACK: La Moda    TRAINERS: Footlocker    COAT: New Look

Since my schedule was rather hectic that day, I was going for a comfortable, simple but stylish look. I decided to sport the over the shoulder trend with an oversized shirt, ripped denim jeans and Nike TN’s. Of Course, my backpack had to follow me that day, it’s just practical!

After witnessing many celebrities, fashion bloggers and Youtubers in this off the shoulder trend,  I must say, I absolutely love it! Whether it’s a shirt, top or jacket, it just looks good!

Travel Diaries: Morocco

Last summer, a group of friends and I decided to go on a little holiday to Morocco! During my time in the country; I was able to learn a lot about their culture, visit such stunning places and do what I do best, eat. I honestly enjoyed every part of my vacation, very honoured to have captured the places I have visited and my experience in Morocco.

I hope you like the photographs as much as I enjoyed taking them!

Now this is different to any other post that I have ever done. Why? Well its a collaboration with another blogger/youtuber that goes by the name Carla Aurelie.

Guys when I say this girl is a character, it’s unbelievable. I think you’ll only understand once you watch her youtube videos, she’s hilarious. Fairly new to youtube, she currently has over 100 subscribers, more than 3000 views on her videos and several comments from others admiring both her style and personality.

What’s even better about it all is that we’re family! We decided to collaborate and take advantage of this moment since we haven’t seen each other in yearsss. So we met up, went out to eat and literally had a fun day out!

For this reason, my attire had to be just right! I wanted it to be comfortable, simple but also cute at the same time which is why I went for a bodysuit with a midi skirt, khaki coat and matching heeled boots from Solewish. Guys I really want more of these heels but damn they hurt lmfao. I recommend purchasing some insoles for them because they are some killer heels.

I’ve honestly come to the conclusion that these heels are for image, nothing else! Trying to sell us dreams.

Either way do check out my girls social media sites and YouTube channel, I promise you’ll love it!

How To Wear A Jumpsuit !

img_9953img_9954img_9991

Jumpsuit – Asos            Glasses – Walthamstow Mall            Trainers – Sports Direct

Choker – Asos                       Necklace – New Look

Hi loves,

I know its been a while since I’ve made a blog post but I’ve honestly been so busy! I’m constantly working which is tiring the hell out of me, writing for Yahoo Style and Solewish as well adds on to the stress as I’m trying my best to balance everything. I don’t know how our parents manage balance everything and make it look easy, honestly! On top of it all, I’m trying to go to the gym as often as I can which knocks me out immediately.

Its life though right? Just have to learn to manage it all and find a way to make it work for me which is something I’m trying to do now!

Enough of that though, it’s time to go back to the topic. My mum treated me to a nice day out the other day in Oxford Street where we were able to do some shoppinggg. Now everyone knows, shopping with your mum is the best as you can literally buy as many things as you want! So obviously for this reason, I had to make sure I looked cute and take advantage of the day by taking photographs for this blog. When I say I was receiving so many compliments on this outfit, had people ask where the jumpsuit was from etc. The way I kept grinning from ear to ear lmfao. The fit is amazing, I love the colour, it’s so comfortable and it was definitely worth £40! It was only right to match it with my pink choker and grey and pink trainers for it to compliment the look.

Wait we can’t forget about the glasses though, are they not stunning?! I bought two for £20 and lord they are worth it!

#BeautyInBlack Exhibition

Hi everyone,

Like I’ve mentioned in my previous post, this specific post is mainly about the BeautyInBlack exhibition by Dazhane Leah. For those who aren’t currently aware of who she may be, well let me just elaborate.

Dazhane Leah is a fashion blogger and photographer that is taking over all social media networks with her impeccable style and eye for detail. She is now recognised as the individual whose photography was featured on numerous media publications such as Essence Magazine, BBC, Elle Brazil, BlackBeauty et al. The photographs that permitted us all to mainly understand just how talented she is was the images that celebrated natural hair. Dazhane took advantage of the double exposure technique as she inserted flowers in afros, creating a breathtaking photo series that was considered as “the best spring natural hairstyles ever” by Essence. So when I found out she was having her first exhibition, it was only right to attend and witness the magic for myself. 

Now, not only did the exhibition feature Dazhane leah but also By Afrique, Sarah Owusu, Erin, Biher Tewelde, Adaeze, Efe, Sirious Film and Timothy Gaudencio. A talented bunch right?

The entertainers of the night

Unfortunately, I was late to the exhibition so was kind of unable to witness all of the performers of night. I did however get the opportunity to witness Nego True do his thing!

It was my first time seeing him live and I just want to say this man is amazing! For those who aren’t aware of him, he does spoken word and is truly very inspirational. The work of Nego True permits you to reflect on your actions and life, speaking on issues that we face today both individually and as a community. You see how his name is Nego True? Well he speaks the truth alright!

Definitely one of my favourites of the night. I recommend watching his videos on Youtube if you haven’t already and just wait to be amazed.

Now this man here is a very unique performer! When Dazhane first introduced Edsun, he walked past the crowd of people to the middle of the floor with no shoes on and looked like he was already in action. At first I thought he was going to be doing some sort of contemporary dance but nooooo, he started singing and oh yes he can! Edsun is definitely different from all the other artists that I have recently seen. He has a different sound and basically gives you a show. Like a true performer that he is, Edsun never broke out of character and interacted with the audience when necessary. I’m telling you now keep an eye on this individual, he is definitely on the rise!

Overall, I enjoyed myself and would attend another event Dazhane throws!

Jumpsuits & Ankle Boots

rai-5rai-4rai-9rai-7rai-8

Hellooo,

It’s been a while since I’ve uploaded something but that’s mainly because I’ve been occupied at work and honestly, I’ve been waiting for the Beauty In Black exhibition before uploading. Not only was I going to the BeautyInBlack exhibition but after that, I attended the InBloom party so it was quite a busy day. For the day, I wore this Missguided jumpsuit with black patent boots, gold watch and earrings. Firstly, this jumpsuit is so comfortable to wear! I was able to move and dance as much as I liked, trust me I wasn’t expecting that either but the fact that it’s also figure hugging makes it 100 x better! I love outfits that compliment my figure. I recommend all of you to get thissss, its worth it!

Even more, I will be posting a review on the #BeautyInBlack exhibition by Dazhane Leah that took place in Shoreditch. It will be uploaded very soon so keep an eye on that!

Thank you x
