Nada Adelle

She’s a beautiful fashion blogger and model but don’t let the cute face and curly locks fool you. This young day is both beauty and brains. Nada is from Manchester and holds a degree in Law, she’s a massive face on the web and her fans love her (70 thousand of them on Instagram).

 She made my job amazingly easy even though this was her first ever Lingerie shoot.

I must say i had a fantastic team and the synergy was fantastic.

Anyways i think i should rest my fingers and let the pictures do the talking….

Lola Rae For Blanck Digital

 

 

 

Aside from being a freelance stylist, i am the fashion editor for an online magazine; http://www.blanckdigital.com

Blanck is an online fashion magazine with a heartbeat, and that heart is Africa… the Last issue was the freedom issue with the underlining question ‘what does freedom meant to you?’ We had four covers for the issue and one of the celebrity featured was aspiring songstress Lola Rae.

Initially, as the shoot was a beauty inspired feature, the moodboard i created  for this shoot was very colorful, bright and summery. That was thrown out the window as we decided to strip her bare and build her look up.

I love how simple, somewhat raw and delicate she looks in some of these images…

Lola Rae is a natural in front of the camera and she evidently photographs well. Some of the images here did not make it into the magazine so you’re literally getting an exclusive on my blog lol.

If you have the time, head on to blanckdigital.com, check out the site and the magazine as i would love to know what you think.

Hello, 

so remember i told you guys that i was moving house, well what i failed to mention or add to that info is that most of my clothes and belongings are in storage. This only made me come to the conclusion that i need new clothes. i mean i cannot go out about without clothing…All that said i would like you to welcome my 2 new favourite piece of clothing; my lovely shorts and my well long deserved stilettos.

As i am sure, most of us fashionista will always say that the best stiletto to buy is the Christian Louboutin Pigalle. in as much as i love Mr Louboutin’s amazing art he calls shoes, the Pigalle is a far cry from comfortable. It’s not just the height you have to deal with, the arch of the shoe is so disproportionate to the height you feel like you’re on your tiptoes standing, on a stilt 90 percent of the time. it is least to say that those shoes are bloody uncomfortable and i wouldn’t trust a woman who calls them comfortable or walk a mile in them (i know, i have trust issues)

All that said, i have found the love of my stiletto life and his name is Nouveau, his daddy is Stuart Weitzerman and the man has a soft sport for comfort and elegance. S trust me when i say this is a match made in shoe heaven.

9 to 5…

Hi Guys,

i know i have been quiet of late and my blog has been missing a post or 2, i do apologise and i blame it all on work and my chaotic life. I have been doing a lot of styling gigs of late, so much that the past 3-4  weekends has been from one shoot to another. To make matters worse i had to move house so most of my stuff is in storage…its all a big mess if i am totally honest.  I promise as soon as images are out i will post them up for you guys to see, a little insight into my creative work isnt a bad idea right?

Well, all that said, todays post is dedicated to the outfit i wear on Tuesday to friday; my work uniform.

I work in a retail store in London as a part time sales associate. It is the only job that gives me enough freedom and leeway to pursue my dream as a creative consultant and if i am totally honest, i actually enjoy working in retail as it kinda keeps me in the field i would love to be great at and give me the avenue to meet people from different places and works of life, even famous ones…

For security reasons i cannot really tell you where i work for the fear of stalkers is the beginning of wisdom.

However i am happy to share with you guys what i look like on most weekdays although i did tweak it a little with the hat and Louboutins (imagine running up and down the stairs in those), i am usually in a pair of boots or mid heels.

i would love to know what you guys wear for 9/5, lets make it a thing.

3 Bloggers 1 night.

HI Guys,

last night i attended an event by Sideview magazine (www.sideviewmagazine.com). The event; 3bloggers one night which is part of the magazines 5th year anniversary took place in Kentish town in London. It was a small cosy event with an intimate crowd and i was there alongside 2 other bloggers to talk about the importance of fashion bloggers in the fashion world.

I was pretty nervous at first but i think i got a hang of it once i got the ball rolling and the crowd was really kind to me so i guess i aced it.

I met a bunch of really cool people and it was a great vibe all through…

It was a lovely night, i even made a new friend/fan, his name is Tony and he literally said he had to have his picture taken with me as i am so beautiful. He even dragged me across the street to make sure he had it taken underneath the Kentish town Graffiti. He was such a sweetheart.

Image 1A massive thank you to the Side view magazine team for having me and thank you to all who came.

PS: no black in sight (well the handbag doest count) Guess the curse is broken, Somebody shout hallelujah!!!!

Ok Bye

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?

Good Old British Seaside

 

Hi guys,

 

IMG_0625

 

l spent my weekend in Cornwall, a last minute.com random getaway decision for my darling Tintins birthday. It was the perfect getaway i needed from all the stress of work and personal palaver… a time out in a little cottage by the sea, surrounded by happy people was what the doctor ordered.

During the day, we went to the beach for a little dip before we decided on going  coast tailing which involved rock climbing and cliff jumping really…

 I totally enjoyed coast tailing, the adrenaline flowing through my veins and the salt water finding its way into my brain must have resulted in me having a momentarily state of highness cos that is the only way i could justify jumping off  a cliff  which is between 60-70 metres high without flinching.

It isn’t normal to be excited and eager to jump off a cliff that high instantaneously.

We had a lovely dinner in the evening at one of the undoubtedly the best crab shack i have been to in my life so far. Like it literally put any sea food platter i have ever had in London to shame, even the fries were so fresh crunchy with the right amount of potato fluff… i haven’t tasted fried potatoes that good in a restaurant in a hot minute.

All in all the weather was fantastic, it was good vibes all through and i m starting to fall in love with how beautiful everything seems in the sun especially in England.  I cannot wait to explore most of the coasts england has to offer and the cuisine of course .

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…
