    So it’s been 3 weeks since wearing a mask in shops went from a ‘er… you may wanna do this’ to a ‘you’re gonna have to do this’ in the UK (better late than never, eh?) and while I’m all about staying safe, there is a slight problem: *deep breath* maskscanbekindaugly *exhales* there, I said it. The minute I heard the announcement, I set out a 10-day action plan to find the most stylish masks out there, and since I’m since sharing is caring, I thought I’d share some of my top picks with you!

    So I’ve heard the sun’s meant to be back this week (I mean, it’s about time – he’s had what, like… a three week holiday?) and one of my favourite things about gorgeous summer weather is spending time outside, especially now that y’know… we’re actually allowed to.

    Spring into style : floral vintage-inspired pieces I’m currently loving

    So spring is one of my favourite seasons, but I feel like we kind of… skipped it this year? The thing I love most  is, of course, the beautiful blooms, and now that we’re actually allowed to go outside and enjoy them, (at least, in the UK), I thought I’d put together a vintage-inspired look to give you all a second chance at Spring, ft. beautiful flower-inspired pieces in pretty, pastel hues.  Waiting for that second chance at Spring like… First up is this fantasy-like floral organza sleeve top – isn’t she a dream?

    ‘Sprinklings of Chocolate’: The problem with tokenism – A Black Woman’s Perspective

    Oh, haaaaaaaaaai! I’m back! Apologies being a little (okay, very) MIA for the last few months – I decided to take a little blogging break because I didn’t quite feel right posting photos of pretty dresses and ish at the peak of a pandemic. *Disclaimer* No judgement to those of you who have been creating content as I’ve loved seeing your super creative bedroom shoots, just my tiny box-sized room didn’t quite allow for that, so I decided to go completely off the (Insta) grid instead. Sitting down for that tokenism discussion like… Chocolate one-shouler polka dot midi dress: Pretty Little Thing Anyyyywaaaay… With the importance of Black Lives Matter movement being…

    5 Reasons why I love fashion… It’s not just about wearing pretty clothes!

    So, it was International Women’s Day a couple of days back and it got me thinking about some of the things that define me as a woman. One of the things that’s pretty close to the top of my list is… fashion. It might sound superficial, but it isn’t just about wearing pretty clothes (and shoes, and accessories, of course). For me, fashion was not only one of my first loves growing up,  but it’s also developed into a much bigger part of my identity over the years, so I thought I’d share a few reasons why that’s the case with you. The way you scratch your head when you…

    Well, it looks like the Western trend is still alive and kickin’ and being a huge fan of all things animal-inspired, I can’t say I’m too upset about this news.

    My kind of nude: Black girl friendly nudes for Valentine’s day, Galentines day and Every day in-between

    So, Missguided recently announced that they’ve started stocking nude underwear for a wider range of skin tones, and naturally I was pretty excited. My excitement was short-lived though, because when I went on their website, I realised that… Every. Single. Shade. Was. Shown. On. The. Same. Fair. Skinned. Model… Sigh. Now, don’t get me wrong – this isn’t personal. I’m not trying to create an ‘us vs. them’ dynamic where it’s cool to attack people because you’re frustrated by the lack of diversity, but here’s the thing: as a woman of colour, I can honestly tell you that there simply aren’t many things that come in our shade. So when they finally…

    Fabulous Furs in Fashion: Is wearing faux fur ethical?

    So Queen Elizabeth II recently made the switch to wearing faux fur (okay, kinda late, but better late than never) and it kind of got me thinking about the ethical side of things. Most of us have established that real fur is a big ‘no-no’ in the 21st century, but should faux fur have any real place in the fashion world either? To help me answer this question, I put together a look featuring some of my faux fur faves, and got to grips weighing up the pros and cons in the fabulously furry debate. Putting on my (furry) thinking hat like…  Pink pointed toe ankle boots: River Island (similar) Faux…
