Bella Bradshaw?

Hi Guys,

i think i am going through a hair-volution and i am totalling loving it. I am your plain jane;  simple weave and braids kind of girl as i don’t like taking drastic risks with my hair. So I think i surprised myself when my hair stylist suggested i tried this style and i said yes after just 10 mins of persuasion. No complaints about looking fresh off the boat,  black version of slash the guitar player or worse a really bad Nollywood actress, like nothing!  My reaction and eagerness to try something new kinda shocked me too…

All in all it definitely has been a welcomed change.

Well as you can clearly tell that this hair got me all giddy and excited that i couldn’t help but put my carrie skirt on (that’s not what the skirts called but just go with it) sashaying down Regent street with the intro tune to sex and the city playing in my head and feeling like a less drama version of Miss Bradshaw….

i decided to take more cool night mode images and i am totally in love with them, i felt like the camera was just expressing my emotions through the colour blurs and soft focusing.

So i decided to opt for claws instead of my usual short simple manicure all thanks to my darling Tintin. they might look so good and stylish but these nails are a nightmare for a working woman like me. Even typing this post is taking longer than expected…what we do in the name of fashion ey?

Yet another black and white ensemble

Hi Guys,

Another sunday, yet another black and white ensemble… I have officially accepted the fact that this summer has been a mainly a summer of black and white for me. I just love the simplicity that comes with both hues and it’s a reflection of my being and nature at the moment as well. Life is so much easier when you keep it simple.

I am sure my knack for colourful ensembles will be back once its autumn/winter as nothing beats bright colours for me on a grey wintry afternoon.

Weird? i know, i am special like that…

IMG_7404Oh and i braided my hair, thought i needed a change. You like?

Can you feel the heat?

IMG_6533

The weather has been so kind to us in London its been pretty amazing. So amazing that it is hard to find the skin to fabric ratio balance. Its so hot that you cannot help but want to walk out with little or almost nothing on.

i have always had a problem when it comes to jumpsuits. Its either my derrière is too big/ my upper body is too long which equates to an uninvited camel toe or its just way too long and unflattering on me. So imagine my excitement when i stumbled on this beautiful jumpsuit in Zara which surprisingly fits pretty well and its a perfect equilibrium in terms of skin to fabric ratio…

London feels and looks different in the sun, it feels like the city is alive and happy, people even apologise when they bump into you in the streets (that never happens in the winter). I really hope the weather stays this way for the next couple of weeks…

Today was such a beautiful day, i think July certainly did get the memo in terms of what it should feel land look like but can you blame it? its my birthday week so the weather has no choice but “turn up” nicely.

Seems like white has definitely been the colour of choice for me this season which has been a pleasant surprise for me cos my brother always goes on about how i look horrible in white and how its so not my colour…so imagine how chuffed i feel when my camera begs to differ. The morale of the story is never let anyone make you feel you cannot make an outfit or a colour work for you and a Little white dress is a definite YAS! for your wardrobe.

HAPPY

Hi Guys,

i woke up with an entirely diff outfit in mind to wear to church yesterday and as i had a wedding reception to attend afterwards, i was hoping to get home for a quick change of outfit and head out ASAP. But that was certainly not the case. I woke up late and was in a mighty rush to make my intended service. I literally just went with the flow and allow the skater skirt inspire the rest of the look bearing in mind that a change of outfit wont be possible at the rate my day was going…but it turned out pretty cool.

Sunday Shenanigans

Hi Guys,

hope you all had a Fabtastic Sunday. Every other sunday my darling Tintin (thesohosister.com) and i always dine out for lunch and this sunday we decided to go to this little gem tucked in a tiny street in knightsbridge.IMG_4544

IMG_4658The food was an absolute delight and the restaurant was clean simple and elegant. I only managed to take just one picture in the restaurant for the fear of looking like a random freshie in a somewhat posh restaurant lol. However i would recommend this restaurant to anyone.

PS i still love my orange Zara jacket, 2years on it still looks as fabulous as the first day i found it.

A Belle of a day…

Hello guys,

it was 20 degrees on Wednesday and I had a lot to do. So I decided to dress for the weather but still look a tad bit smart. I spent half of my day in a film studio with my wonderful friend Baba Agba who is a photographer and now a film maker. We were working on an advert for my T-shirt line Mr Garbe (not to worry a well detailed post about MR Garbe will be up soon). It was super cool as i was the director on set…  cant wait for you guys to see the result. A Belle of a day

As most of my friends know i never take myself too seriously. After the shoot we decided to have a break and here i am with my wonderful little friend Toyin. She’s more like sister to be honest, messing around like we always do. She has an awesome blog and a mega style crush on me lol (don’t tell her i said that) but you guys really should check out her blog http://www.thesohosister.com_MG_4396

It was such a beautiful and productive day. The best part was the fact that I spent the day working and hanging out with people who mean a lot to me as friends and family, I couldn’t ask for a more wonderful day

Noir et Blanc

Hi guys,

Last week I fell in love, it was the kind of love you know it is definitely unshakable and real. there was no ifs or buts,  ‘oohs’ or ‘ahs’. it was a yes! I have to have you and after running helter skelter all around the west end in London to find you, you came home with me.

Guys words cannot explain how much I love my Leather biker jacket from the recent icons collection from H&M. Believe me when I say at a 100 quid for a 100 percent leather, it wasn’t a bargain it was broad daylight robbery Lol.

Okay I will stop being dramatic but I really have to stress how amazing this leather jacket is.

The cut is superb, like it’s a perfect fit no long arm nonsense as H&M usually does….will blame that on their Scandinavian heritage. and the design is just simple and fabulous.

I must warn you guys before hand as i will be wearing this jacket every chance i get this summer and beyond so expect more cameos from my lovely little gem on my blog.

Sunday Flow…

Hi guys,

its yet another sunday and its pretty cold in London town as always. My outfit wasn’t totally planned but i was so eager to wear my new wedged boots and the rest of the ensemble fell into place. The shoes are Stuart Weitzerman for Russell and Bromley, i got them on sale for £49 from a whooping £245. Guess you can understand my excitement a wee bit.

Image 9 Image 4 Image 7 Image 14 Image 2 Image 10 Image 11 Image 8 Image 15Church service was absolutely fantastic today, the message was simple and apt. If you are Christian, no matter where you find yourself always be a team player and not the critic. There is love in unity and there is only one Body of Christ. So no matter how dire the situation, there is strength in perseverance.

have a wonderful week guys

Bella
