Nouveau

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.

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.

Hi Guys,

It was such a beautiful day on Sunday and i totally had no idea of what to wear so i decided to do the “first outfit to pop out of the closet” trick and it totally worked.

This Topshop dress is almost a year old and has been worn just once.Initially i wore my black tasselled leather loafers as i really did not want to wear such a short dress with heels to church. But after the service my darling Tintin (thesohosister.com) and i popped into Zara as they do have a sale on at the moment (which is pretty boring as most of the items are still expensive) to look for a specific bag i kinda fell in love with but didn’t want to pay full price for but instead, i found this lovely pink platform heels waiting patiently for me to give them a good home in my closet and i couldn’t say no.

It’s always exciting when you can revamp an outfit to create a totally different look and thats why i love this ensemble so much.

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.

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,

The weather was so pretty today i and i really didnt feel like  wearing a coat or dressing for the cold so i decided to wear one of my favourite mens jumper i got from Zara 2 seasons ago. I never really thought an asymmetrical skirt and wedge trainers would work well together till i tried it on and it totally did. Image 3Image 5Image 15 Image 22I hope you guys had a wonderful sunday…

Have a great week ahead.

Sunday Brunch.







after Church on sunday, my darling Tintin and i (www.thesohosister.com) decided to go grab lunch. Between musing around central london trying to find cuisine inspiration for our not so hungry bellies, we decided to have an impromptu photo shoot. I totally blame the silliness on hunger and Tintin, whenever i am around her the little child in me which is always dying to escape comes alive…its never a dull moment.IMG_3183IMG_3074IMG_3068IMG_3108IMG_3111Hope you all had a lovely sunday/weekend too…
