P A L A Z Z O







Outfit: Top Taupe - Missguided , Palazzo wide leg trousers - Missguided ,  Leopard Print Bag - Primark, Heels (although not quite visible) - Topshop


I am so happy to be the proud owner of these gorgeous Taniyah Paisley Print Palazzo Trousers.

I never thought I could pull off wide leg trousers as I am quite short, however, these fit just perfectly. The fact they are high waisted also increases their love factor. My collection of trousers/jeans are quite samey tbh (skinny or boyfriend fitting) so some diversity was much needed. An absolute wardrobe revive.

Paired with another favourite of mine by Missguided, the Magdelan Faux Suede Cut Out Top Taupe, this outfit was perfect for my weekend get away to the beautiful city that is Bath - staying at the breathtaking Combe Grove Manor Hotel.

Have an amazing week lovelies !!

Furry Chubbie

This is one post I really enjoyed shooting for. I have fun in most of my shoots but this shoot was extra fun! 

So today I bring to you the start of my AW14 looks , most importantly, Primark's 'Fur Chubbie'. I really don't know if that is what it is actually called as I have tried to google the name but nothing comes up. The name was written on my receipt for what could only be the fluffy/fur jacket and that kinda stuck because it made me and my friend chuckle.
It comes in several colours but the orange colour really stood out to me and of course, complimented my skin tone.  Besides how catwalk it looks, it is really warm and perfect for the transition between summer and autumn/winter. I think it is in store for about £20/£25, absolutely bloody fantastic.

I wanted a fun, vibrant background that really brought the colour out, but as you can tell, I couldn't choose between the green and the blue, so I chose both. 
I am really in love with this Chubbie. I might have to purchase it in another colour,  I heard Primark brought a burgundy colour out too quite recently.
                              Outfit: Fur Chubbie - Primark , Joni Jeans in Black - TopshopKnee High boots - eBay, Watch - Casio

I heard knee high boots are in this season. I found my perfect pair from eBay china for £11!! Would you believe it.


Have a good rest of your week dolls!

A S O S - S A L E







Aloha lovelies, hope you've all had a good start to the week,

this is a mega quick post showcasing my favourite bits and bobs that I picked up in the ASOS sale.  The sale continues (up to 70% off) so it's always a good idea to have a look.

ASOS Mac In Oversize Drape (comes in Grey and Green - £37.00 down from £75!!) - firstly, I didn't know if this drape would suit me as I am 5'4 and it looked like it would be for the taller woman. So to my surprise and delight, it fits perfectly. 

Just Female Stroke Skinny Jeans In Random Blue£28.00 down from £60 - lovely colour, amazing fit. 

Unfortunately, my favourite sale item, which is the ASOS PETITE Cami with Dramatic Drape Back in Winter Print - has sold out, BUT, I shall still tell you how lovely the print and the fit is and how I love the fact that it dresses up any bottoms creating the perfect weekend outfit.

Shoes purchased from eBay - you can find them here...

enjoy the rest of your week!!

R Y V I T A ®



What do you get when you mix Britain's most iconic crispbread provider with a legendary London-based designer known for his vibrant and modern designs?

You get an uber snazzy special edition Ryvita tin produced by the award winning and internationally acclaimed, Ben de Lisi.

Ben de Lisi is an American born fashion designer based in London and best known for designing the red evening dress worn by Kate Winslet at the Oscars in 2002 and his sell out collection at Debenhams.

Following the footsteps of the first designer tin by Kelly Hoppen which flew off the shelves, Ryvita, with the help of Ben de Lisi, moves into a fresh and dynamic new era set to take kitchen's everywhere by storm.

People are visual by nature, so to attract consumers, a well designed packaging is very important.  A visually striking design has a massive impact on how well a product will sell.
 In this case, Ryvita has totally nailed it. Although a somewhat simple design, the white background with the dashes of colour creates a bold, crisp, eye-catching tin set to be the main feature on worktops everywhere. Gone are the days of dull kitchen homewares and stale crispbread.

Lets face it, the tin is a must have if you love your Ryvita crispbreads and want to keep them crisp for longer. It is exclusively available to buy via the Ryvita website whilst stocks last - www.ryvita.co.uk

I am extremely honoured to have been gifted with the opportunity to present this to my readers. I love the Ryvita range so to play a small part of this exciting release is incredible. 

May I just add, the Ryvita Thins (pictured) are unbelievably moreish!! YUM.

Outfit: Playsuit - Cassadjoa , Heels - Topshop, Bag - Zara

Hey guys, Hope you have all had a lovely weekend!
Last week was mega stressful for me but thank God for weekends.

I decided to do a quick post on last night's outfit to dinner to showcase this Ankara playsuit made for me by the beautiful and oh so talented Cassadjoa. I have been meaning to blog this for a while now as it was made for me late last year. 

I am in love with modern African clothing and I am so excited that it is slowly but surely taking the fashion world by storm. The bright colours,  intricate detailing and diversity in the fabrics makes it a fashion win every time. I am always on the look out for affordable modern African items and designers so I was absolutely delighted when I discovered Cassadjoa. 

Please visit her Etsy shop: www.etsy.com/shop/CassadjoaFashion for pre-made and made to order pieces.

 Hopefully, modern African clothing and items will soon be a norm in High street stores!!

P.S.  on my instagram a few weeks back, I was talking about how quickly the Zara bag (pictured) sold out online. Anyway, I managed to finally find in Zara Norwich (good ol' home town), I was so excited when I saw it that I must have looked really strange running to it. It was also placed at an unfriendly height for a girl that is 5"4. After several attempts to jump and reach it, a kind gentleman must have felt sorry for me because he helped me without the need to ask (lol). 


This is my favourite bag ever and I haven't stopped using it since I bought it (Thank you ZARA!!!)
