The Ethnicity Awards 2022 was in full swing with star studded guests and nominee's gracing the red carpet to celebrate Black, Asian and Ethnic Minority groups in the TV, Sports and Arts industry who have achieved outstanding achievements. With Judi Love hosting this years event, I was fortunate enough to   attend and interview some of the guests and nominees at the Mayfair, London.

The National Social Media Awards 2022 was in full swing with hundreds of brands, creatives, influencers and  business owners attending this years highly anticipated event held at Proud Cabaret. NSMA, which is currently in its 2nd year,  was about recognising and celebrating the achievements  of those in the world of social media.

With performances from Jas Douglas and Lika Osipova  along with nominees and VIP guests, it was a highly buzzed evening and there's no doubt that most attendees had a memorable night. Speaking to BBC Appreciate star and presenter Kayode Damali (pictured above) on the red carpet, he mentioned how social media has progressed in many ways since his student days..."for me I remember the first tine when I used social media when I was a student to get elected as Vice President of my Student's Union, and at the time we only had Facebook so I went ham on Facebook!"

Many other guests expressed how much social media had played a part on how much 'easier' it was to promote their careers, no matter the profession and in more ways has had a 'positive' impact. Much more was said from many other VIP guests so stay tuned as the official interviews from the NSMA red carpet will be be released 4th November 2022.

The BFI London Film Festival was in full swing and across London, many events were held in honour of the film industry featuring UK talent across the board.

I had the amazing opportunity to attend there Empire of Light UK premiere and it was actually my first time ever attending a red carpet for BFI! Many actors, directors and screenwriters were in attendance and the full Empire of Light cast came along with the likes of Olivia Coleman and Michael Ward. Even though there were hundreds of guests,  getting to the event, walking the red carpet and taking our seats was smooth sailing. 

The film itself was a slow burner, set in the 80s and directed by Academy Award winning, Sam Mendes. Without revealing too much here, check out the synopsis on the official IMBD page!

 Hey guys! I know it's been a  long while since you've last heard from me on Blogger but I've definitely been busy with some things that I would love to share with you all. 

First up, I took my first trip in 2 years to Dubai! Landing in the UAE was a surreal moment, especially since the heat was quite intense but so, so needed. 

After spending a week in this futuristic yet culturally strong city, I vlogged the whole trip (bearing in mind, holding a camera up in 30 degree heat was a mission in itself) and put it all in a 10 min plus video to show you all the best bit of my holiday.

I will be sharing more information about my trip, from fun things to do in Dubai and also the local laws and customs to be aware of if you do decide to visit.

Stay tuned for those post but in the meantime, stay connected with all my other social media platforms!



 



The first edition of the National Social Media Awards was in full swing and it happened in the heart of London. With star studded guests in attendance, I spoke to comedian and entrepreneur Big Narstie, BBC Apprentice star Kayodee and actress Gaia Romilly Wise to name a few! Check out the rest of the interviews from NSMA!

There is a reason why so many people enjoy traveling. It opens you up to new experiences, pushes you out of your comfort zone, expands your horizons, and is an overall great time. Whether visiting Big Ben in the United Kingdom or the Taj Mahal in India, you have the option to see sights that are only recognisable to you because of the history books you had in high school. 


Now, there is the running joke that almost all of the poisonous animals and spiders are down in Australia, but do not worry too much about that. There are so many things to do in Australia, and be rest assured, those black widow spiders are not looking to interrupt your dinner date or your visit to the beach. So visit Australia! You will have a great time, especially if you consider doing these four activities:


See The Sydney Harbour


The Sydney Harbour is the most iconic spot in Australia due to its awesome beaches and the famous Sydney Opera House. On Australia.com, the Sydney Harbour is described as, “Sydney Harbour is an aquatic playground for Sydneysiders, with more than 240 kilometres (150 miles) of shoreline, punctuated by unspoiled beaches, picturesque gardens, and pockets of natural bush.” 


Interested yet? Of course you are; Sydney Harbour is a fantastic spot to visit. 


Visit Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park


With unique geographical formations, this rare national park is a cool place to visit. From here, you can take guided tours, look at the rock art of past generations, go bird watching, and more. It is a beautiful spot that you would regret not visiting if you ever make the trek to the place down under. 


Melbourne’s Laneways


The Laneways of Melbourne are, in a word, awesome. For example, one of the laneways, named ACDC Lane after the famous rock band, “contain(s) cafés, restaurants and clubs as well as an installation by Lou Weis and Jan Van Schaik called 'Over Logo', and numerous other works of street art.”


What is even cooler about ACDC Lane is that two days after a significant fire in 2008, the laneway hosted an all-ages rock concert among the burned buildings. Talk about cool. 


The only issue with Melbourne’s Laneways is the fact that they are a long while from the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park. Driving from Melbourne to Uluru is 25 hours away, so you may need to purchase a plane ticket if you plan on visiting both. 



Go On An Adventure Tour


Want to go see some kangaroos and koalas in their natural habitat? Take an adventure tour! You get the opportunity to truly take in the nature of Australia through animals or geographic locations, like the rock at the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park. 




For the UK folks, lockdown seems like its coming to an end!

With bars and restaurants opening up, it seems like the perfect time to put together a spring/summer looks to give you gals some ideas on what to wear for the special occasion. Whether it's a birthday party or a  wedding occasion, the bold green blazer works best for that statement look without having to do too much with accessories. A simple heel and small side bag will completely the look. The second preppy look will go perfectly for a daytime brunch with the girls; go the extra mile by wearing vintage sunglasses and or a nostalgia side bag. 

In the meantime, have a wonderful start to this new season and don't forget to LIKE, COMMENT and SUBSCRIBE!
