They say what’s the point in resolutions we know they will all be broken by the end of January. I love New Years as it gives me a mental line that allows me to think of life as a fresh start. And also look at and cross out what I have or have not achieved in my previous years. 2012 was an eventful year to say the least but one thing it taught me is that life is short, very short.
I want to live life each day, I have. Tattoo saying carpe diem, it means cease the day in Latin. That’s what I will live up to. May 2013 be a great year for you all.
Just a few shots from the festive season. Spent Christmas on Scotland and nye in London.
Purple passion, as been all over the runway, i love this look an as i love vibrant colours on my lip this dark purple i must admit had me a little shy, but after trying the tester i coulnt resist buying it. I’m more for value,but i love how mac lipsticks do last. For some inspiration here are few pics,my own and also please you tube my video on how i got the look. dont be afraid to try it, it suits most skin tones.
on my lips: mac Rebel £14…find it here.
ALL HAIL QUEEN RIRI!
This woman can rock any hairstyle what so ever, that my dears takes true beauty and confidence. As much as people love to hate her I have a new found respect for this woman after watching her Oprah interview, not only was she candid, honest and real, she did not skirt around any questions, and a glimpse into how she’s still Robyn to everyone back home shows me how grounded she is. Not only do i now give her fashion credentials I also now respect her as someone to look up to and have doubt that queen b’s throne maybe getting taken in the near future.
Hope you’re all well, what did you guys think of Rihannas look at VMA’s last week??
Crazy as it seems I wanted to change up my style for the summer, I randomly got an undercut, it took a bit of persuasion from my younger sister and friend Somia. All in all I like how it turned out and it just looks a little different to my usual as it adds edge.
Hope all are well x x
Haven’t posted in a while little ensemble for Sunday picnic at Greenwich park xxx

Lots of lovely items are popping up this summer and so are trendsbut its good to balance out wardrobe staples with trend, either style is more important than fashion, be true who you are and dont follow the herd, but be a shepard, heres a list of similar items i put together whatever your budget.

Had to pop to law school today to tie a couple of ends, one reason I praise BPP is there acknowledgement that since the fees are so high they do bend free coffees and hot chocolate.
It’s hardly been a summer but I have taken to making shorts my fail safe go to in hot weather. That simple tshirt is one of my favourites. It goes with absolutely everything.

The weather behaving itself has allowed for more impromptu family outings. The thing about living in England is you must be prepare for all four seasons in one day and such is the reason why layering is handing for most Brit fashionistas.
Albeit this wknd was a good weekend and as we live by excel docklands we decided to take into the Olympic tourist attractions springing up and took a ride on the cable cars dubbed emirate airlines.
