Oh hey, look who is back wearing white again, meee, lol. I don’t know but there’s something about white that totally gets me, maybe its the way it makes my melanin pop? Or the way it reflects and bounces off the sun. We are currently experiencing heatwave in the UK here, the weather has been so blazing hot and I have been loving it. I know some people are moaning about it but honestly I don’t want it to end. I love the sun, it makes my heart sing. But then again, I visited a friend the other day in South Croydon and I honestly couldn’t believe how hot and humid his home was so I can totally understand if this person bitches about this weather, it was honestly unbearable, I couldn’t imagine lasting a day in that house in this weather.

Hey guys, its been a minute I came on here , I have been swamped with life, I am sure I must have mentioned it in the past but just incase I didnt, I am currently running a two year diploma programme in Childcare and I am just about to finish my first year so loads of assignments to wrap up, coupled with the children and a home to run, its been manic so I had to take a break here. I am still not done but I have submitted parts and hopefully will be done with the remnants by wednesday. I got a breather and thought I popped in to let yall know Im still here, still breathing, still styling just havent had the time to post as often as I used to.
Hope you are all good, staying safe and not entering any random man’s car, lol. I happened on this thread on twitter where a man was foul mouthing a young lady for not entering his car when he stopped to offer her a ride on his way to work. According to him, he innocently offered her a ride and she arrogantly turned him down thinking he was interested in her. The arrogance of that tweet in this age of kidnappers and what have you? Of all the reasons she could have turned down his offer, safety of course being paramount all his tiny ego could think of was that she thought he was interested in her? The worst part of this thread was the stupid senseless comments that ensued. Man I just can’t! Guys I have only just breezed in jare. I will see y’all soon. Please manage this outfit post I shot a while ago. I took the pictures at home, the lighting wasn’t so great but the co-ord set is gorgeous, got them from newlook.com.

A good short suits is definitely a necessity in your summer wardrobe this season. This trend is strong and not going anywhere soon and guess what I am loving it. If you love this trend but don’t want to buy new ones, you can definitely mix and match like I have done here. I also think think that the trick to pulling off this trend without suffocating in the heat is to go for breezy and lightweight fabric like linen. I would also suggest opting for bright pastel colours or white, I love whites in the summer.
The shorts and blazer I am wearing here are separates, they are both from Primark, the blazer comes with matching trousers, the linen shorts was bought separately but I thought they would go real well together, loved the extra factor the striped linen blazer gave the whole look, you could opt for flat sandals, mules, slides, pumps, whatever footwear will go so well with this look, its one of those you could either dress up or dress down depending on your choice of accessories. Are you feeling this look? P.S – I have a post on the Shorts suit trend here. Continue reading How to Wear – Shorts Suit for Summer
How cute is this denim shirt dress? I promise I have got knickers/shorts underneath as you would see if you scrolled further down. I got the shirt in a size 14 so that its oversized and a bit longer too. The material is floaty which makes it perfect for this season. Let me tell you a little about this denim dress, it was thrifted ( insert big grin). As soon as I saw it, I knew I had to have it and I just knew I was going to wear it with a big scarf, sunglasses and sandals. I went for the tan sandals because I love tan and denim. The bag was the icing on this look. I had just finished from picking up my daughter from school and as I like to do, I popped into the thrift store to see what they got, I promise you guys I wasn’t planning on buying nothing, I just wanted to window shop, I love to window shop, its one my top past time. So here I was casually checking out what they got when my sight rested on this beauty, the price was gooood, I knew I had to have it, resolve gone with the winds. I have wanted a bucket basket bag but didn’t want to splurge. As you all know it’s a serious trend right now but I especially love this one because of the stripes, it’s definitely unique, I am going to wear the heck out of it this season. I really loved this look and I hope you all love it too and it inspires you this week. Continue reading Denim Dress
Yasss move over little black dress, the new bae is here and she is the little yellow/mustard dress. If you didn’t know well now you know, I mean it’s been making moves here and there but after Amal Clooney showed up to the royal wedding in that Mustard yellow Stella McCartney number, the rest is history. This is officially the color of the season, it suits every skin tone and shade, it flatters everyone, its bold without being brash you know I mean? I have just been stocking up on them lately, This one from Boohoo is a treat, issa snack. I wore it to a barbecue the other day and I didnt have to worry about sucking in and all that jazz and the cinched waist meant that it still gave some curves yall. It really is the best outfit for when you want to be cute and still eat all the food at the party. Thank me later. Continue reading Move Over LBD, Hello Little Yellow Dress
We have been blessed with a very early summer here and I couldn’t be happier, this week for example, they said we were gonna have lots of rain and thunderstorm but the sun has been coming through and doing her thing although it rained cats and dogs on Tuesday and me and the girls were stuck in it for some good minutes. I don’t mind the rain when I am indoor, warm and cosy, a cup of tea and netflix to go, okay not netflix, more like youtube to go, I love watching youtube videos especially vlogs, hauls, makeup videos, routines a whole lot haha.
It’s also half term break here which is probably why I had the time to take this outfit photo yesterday and put them up today. I bought this Kimono recently from Boohoo, check out my haul video below and OMG! You guys, I am absolutely in love with it, it’s very lightweight and floaty and just the perfect throw on over tank tops and dresses, something I very much intend to live in this summer . I especially love the idea of this long floaty Kimono on denim cutoff and a tank top, I think its super stylish, very effortlessly chic which is my vibe always. Whats your summer go to outfit?

Hi everyone, I feel like the world’s worst fashion blogger right now, my views have plummeted and I know its all my fault. Consistency is really the key to nailing this blogging thing you know, forget everything you have read, it doesn’t matter how fabulous your style is, if you are not consistent, your views go down.
Aint nobody got time to be checking for you if you are not checking for yourself. It’s that simple, I have had this look sitting there for a while but have just been too lazy/busy to post it. I think Instagram is also to blame for the slow posts you know, these days, once the pic is taken, one is quick to post one or two on Insta and then get too lazy to post it on the blog but I am going to try and change and hopefully I get you all to come back. I am going to challenge myself to post once a day for seven days, starting today actually. I swear this is so on the spot. I literally came up with this idea right now. Gosh am I crazy or what? But guess? I am going to see it through. So yeah lets do this. I have so many post Ideas I have been sleeping on hopefully this challenge gets me to sit up and DO.
Now how have you all been? Wore this outfit two weeks ago when the weather was so hot and good, this week we have gone back to Winter, its so cold right now, I am literally depressed. I can’t even understand this crazy weather. Anyhoo we still going to get up and get shit done. Have a love week fam and don’t forget you can do anything you set your hearts on, you are the boss!

According to a recent report, one in four British adult is obese, this is definitely alarming. What may be the cause of this, one is forced to wonder, at least I am. I have also noticed that this year more than ever, self-love is quite a thing but I fear that as with things when they trend, they get abused and I have started to see that happening already. Continue reading Is Self Love The New Synonym For Obesity?
Double denim aka Canadian suit is one of those styles that will never go out of style, its a classic, you can dress it up or down, sex it up or make it preppy. Its suits all ages – both young and old, can be adapted in variety of ways. I recently got this skirt from Primark, I have a video on my recent primark haul here but you know what I am going to do a primark haul post too for those of you who do not have the patience or the data to watch videos.
For spring, its still a bit chilly here, I styled the skirt with a tank and an oversized denim jacket, my hubby’s jacket actually, seriously the easiest and best way to get the perfect oversized jacket is to raid the men’s section, the quality is usually better too. I am still about that cinched waist life as you may have seen from my latest posts here so I grabbed this big ass belt I am wearing for the first time since I bought it last year.
Another reason I love denim so much is its non discriminatory style, this banger goes with everything but for this look I have opted tanned boots and finished it off with this lil cute glasses I got off ebay. I hope you guys love the look, I apologize for the silence on the blog, I have been swamped with school work and mum life but its the holiday now and I hope to do better. Happy Easter holiday fam, see you all soonest xx. Continue reading Double Denim girl
Polka dots are one of those styles that will always be trendy, it never goes out of style, season after season, its a classic. As usual, I was casually browsing/window shopping at HM when I spotted this dress, I knew I had to get it, it was also discounted, I got it for half the price. I think the discount was the tipping point, it was originally £35 but I ended up paying £17.50 for it, YAASSS! I am such a bargain head I swear. Continue reading As Classic as a Polkadot
