Happy New Year everyone! How was your holidays?

What better way to celebrate the New Year with a birthday! I was really excited to do this 80's glam photoshoot - its been on my bucket list for a very long time. As you all know, I'm a huge fan of the 80's era, so I thought mixing that with a bit of glam would be the perfect shoot to do to celebrate my birthday and the New Year.

No matter how much older I get, I still feel young at heart and particularly with this year, I'm ready to really enjoy what this year will bring. Positive vibes, fun memories and success! I'm always working on my career and as always I will be sharing the journey with you guys.

I hope this year will bring you love peace and happiness! Have a wonderful New Year!

It's boot season! I have missed wearing boots, I do actually prefer them over heels - am I the only the only one who thinks this lol?

In collaboration with Femme Luxe , I paired these boots from Public Desire with the Knitwear range from Femme Luxe. Mustard and khaki is like the best partnership - the colours work so well for the
early Autumn trend.

I've heard a lot of people say Autumn is now their new favourite time of year. At first I was stuck with summer forever being the best time of year but Autumn too has its best bits especially those REALLY into fashion. The long boots come out, the fur jackets start to appear (of course faux fur) and the knitwear of every single colour you can think of start making their way to our fav online shops and boutiques. 

The feeling of being comfortable and fashionable is like having the best of both worlds. C'mon, I'm sure you remember a time where you wore a really pretty dress but couldn't sit properly or kept shifting it every 5 minutes? Yes, that was me once upon a time!

Femme Luxe have literally answered the very question I was having in summer...what should I wear for Autumn?? This dress is not only comfortable but the bright pop of orange finishes the look giving it a quirky but sophisticated Autumn look.

When you think of African Fashion, what comes to mind? Is it the vibrant colours that can be seen a mile away? Or the unique set of patterns that dominate the fabrics? Whichever it may be, Africa Fashion Week London is back for its 8th annual event!

Being a part of Africa Fashion Week London was every inch of a cultural celebration of African fashion, art and beauty. Hosted at the Freemasons  Hall in London, Africa Fashion Week London showcased hundreds of unique and vibrant collections from designers, models and stylists across the UK, Europe, US and Africa.

It was my second time coming to this event and I was honoured to interview models, designers, stylists and the public at the event to get a glimpse of what its like for them to be a part one of  Europe's largest fashion events. Across the historic hallways was filled with the public who seemed intrigued and excited to experience stands with traditional style Liputa (which is the name given to the patterned fabric from D.R. Congo) Ankra and other African materials all hanged up in eye-catching designs of bikinis, evening gowns, day dress and more.

The event concluded with the famous catwalk, putting on a display with hundreds of unique pieces , each designer bringing their own flavour and inspiration to their collections. Nothing was short of the imagination when it came to showcasing what Africa fashion is in 2018.   

With platforms like Africa Fashion Week London, its a vital way to bring to light some of the beauty to come out of the second largest continent in the world. For those living in London, we are fortunate enough to be spoiled for choice when it comes to the Africa market from traditional food, clothes and beauty products and after a successful weekend of African fashion, the futures seems vibrant for Africa Fashion Week London in its endless goal to celebrate and promote African businesses on a global market to create recognisable brands and in time, a positive social change in Africa.

Malibu Beach

After about 40 minutes drive on the motorway from Hollywood, Malibu Beach was the next destination! It was a really peaceful town; literally it was Sun, Sea and Beach.

Santa Monica is another beautiful area in California and was not too far off from Malibu. Visiting the amusement park was a lovely way to end the day after all the driving and walking around. This is definitely the place to visit if you're into arcade games and fun fair vibes. You do have to pay a fee to get in but its all worth it, wether you're with a group of friends, family or a date!

Now I have ALWAYS wanted to experience high school in the US so I loved bumping into Hollywood High School in Hollywood! Of course this school specialised in performing arts and we did see a mini band at the front gates.

Hollywood Walk of Fame

DREAM COME TRUE! Now for so so long, I had always wanted to see the King of Pop's Hollywood star. The struggle was real to try and locate it! We walked up and down the boulevard trying to figure out where it was, not knowing there was two Michael Jackson stars, one who was a radio personality and of course the Kind of Pop. Luckily, a nice man told us exactly where we could find Michael Jackson's star - right outside the Chinese Theatre in Hollywood Boulevard. This will definitely be framed at some point.
