    So we’re officially two days into summer (for those of you who like to do things by the book anyway).

    As you may have guessed if you follow me on Instagram, I’m a bit of a flower fanatic. Pair this with my (relatively recent) obsession with pink, and it’s pretty easy to see why Spring is my new favourite season, and why during a recent trip to Primarni I fell in love with what can only be described as the dress of dreeeeeeeams. They may be sooooooo 90’s, but slip dresses are deffo making a comeback for SS19. Not being one to pass up on a good ol’ fashion throwback, I put together a look showing you how to style ’em for Spring, along with my top 5 picks for…

    Blooms ‘n Blossoms: My top 5 floral blouses for those Instagram-worthy blossom tree snaps! 🌸🌸

    So yesterday was an absolute beaut of the day (thank you, Mr Sun!),  which almost makes up for the fact that we lost a WHOLE HOUR of sleep this morning. If you love your bed anywhere near as much as I do, you’ll realise just how much of a big deal this is, but you know what they say: every cloud has a silver lining! We’ve got an extra hour of daylight to look forward to every day (and justify slightly premature transitional season outfits), so yay!

    Shades of Snake: The best snake print pieces for gals who like a s-s-s-lither of animal print in their lives! 🐍🐍

    Call me colour-crazy, but even though I love neutrals as much as the next girl (actually, probably quite a lot less, if I’m being honest), there’s something about them that has this way of making an outfit look… blah. You’ll probs know by now that brights are more my kinda thing, but every once in a while, I feel like I just wanna give the colour wheel a lil’ chill ya know? How to solve this style struggle? Throw in some poppin’ prints (namely a bit of animal), and voila- instant blah to bangin’ upgrade. Now, I’m not usually the biggest animal print fan, but snakeskin is that babe I’ll…

    Self-Love: It Starts With you: My top 5 tips on starting your journey towards loving yourself! 🌹❤️

    It’s been almost a whole year since I started my self-love journey, and I can’t really put my finger on what triggered it, but I can picture the exact moment when I started the journey to that happy little town called ‘Loving Yourself’. And when I say ‘picture’, I mean it literally. It all started with a selfie: Sounds bonkers, right? But it’s true. Up until the moment I snapped this pic, I’d spent the best part of about 12 years basically thinking I was the most butters thing ever to grace the earth. And then, all of a sudden, I found myself looking at a photo of myself and…

    Candyfloss Dream: The best cosy, candy-like pieces for ladies with a bit of a style sweet tooth! 🍬🍰🎂

    So for the millionth time this week, we’ve woken up to another frickin’ freezing morning… brrr! It’s that kind of cold where you hop in your car and your fingers are numb within about two seconds of touching your the steering wheel (is this just me who has this problem?) All you wanna do is wrap yourself in a giant cocoon of heated, pink candyfloss…. so me being me, that’s exactly what I did! It’s been almost a whole month since I featured my gorgeous pink fur coat and I was starting to get withdrawal symptoms, so I thought it was about time I gave it another whirl! I’ve put…

    Chocolate Drops: My top 5 tall-girl-friendly knitwear pieces… for that sweater dress slay or hot chocolate hibernation life! 🍫🍫

    So, it looks like we’re back to those sub-zero temperatures again… Y’know- the ones where it’s absolutely FREEZING, but you’ve left your gloves at home (or lost one like this silly gal did yesterday). All you wanna do is just tuck your hands into your sleeves and burrow into the cosy cocoon of an oversized jumper- But ah wait… you’re a tall woman, so none of the cute, cosy jumpers fit properly and you’re stuck with a knitted 3/4 sleeve crop top… in one degree weather (yaaaaaaaaaaay!) Every tall woman knows cold weather dressing can be a complete nightmare, but since I’m taking my new role as your Angel Godmother very seriously…

    Check On It: How to make prints winter-worthy for girls who love a little bit of colour! 👧🏿💛

    I’m sure I’m not the only colour lover who’s constantly looking for ways to inject some ‘bam!’ into my autumn/winter wardrobe… without it being too ‘in your face’. One of the best ways to do this? Go for poppin’ prints rather than solid blocks of colour, for a more subtle, laid-back vibe. In the words of Beyonce, when it doubt, ‘Check On It’… and since no one ever dares questions Queen B, I simply said ‘yes, maam!’ and put together an adorable semi-casual look, perfect for any fellow colour fan! To get stuck straight in,  I popped on this beautiful Cameo Rose check shirt. This is the one to end every. other. check. shirt. you. have.…

    Black, White, and Splashes of Culture 🇳🇬💛❤️🇬🇧

    I feel like I’m beginning to make a bit of a name for myself for being fashionably late for… well, pretty much everything. Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ll probably know that October was Black History Month, and there were so many amazing events across the UK celebrating Black history and culture in all its wonderfully colourful beauty. I was lucky enough to attend ‘Africa on the Square‘ for the first time this year and girrrrrl, let me tell you: it was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. From fashion and music, to food and everything in-between, there was something for everyone… I even managed to find some vegan jollof rice, complete with…
