Nail it with Rosie Fortescue!

If you’ve been following my blog, you’ll know I have an endless love affair with nail polishes (owning a few 200!), and this week I was fortunate enough to try out some cool nail products by Rosie Fortescue!

For those of you who don’t know who Rosie Fortescue is, she stars in reality series; Made in Chelsea – a major guilty pleasure of mine, and has had some of the most spectacular on screen dramas – my most favourite scene being when Rosie was exposed for having an affair with her best friends boyfriend -ABSOLUTE DRAMA!

Branching off of the MIC franchise, Rose has released a her own jewellery line and most recently; NAILED LONDON – her nail polish brand, which I was pleasantly surprised about and just needed to try!

NAILED LONDON 1

Nailed London is described as a fashion forward brand with a patented, revolutionary 3-step system, developed to closely match the look, feel, wear and gloss of a professional gel polish that provides superior longevity. This is an effect I love in nail polish as I adore super glossy or absolute matte finishes – I think it juts looks really chic, so I was intrigued to find out if it really played up to its promises.

The Nailed collection is also said to be inspired by catwalk looks with is not surprising as Rosie is an avid blogger and has been spotted at many a London Fashion Week.

Looking at her collection I picked out her Base Coat, Top Coat and a beautiful bubblegum/ Barbie pink – Booty Call because who doesn’t like one of those, ey! – along with a few other colours

When I first saw the colour of Booty Call I was in love, I’ve got a thing about pink, which is quite weird as it’s not my favourite colour, but I immediately prepped my nails (filed and buffed)

As I explained before in my previous nail post – I use Mavala’s nail strengthener and a 2 part fibre which helps protect your nail. I ditched the two part fibre and went in with the Nailed Base Coat – which was really easy to apply and dried quite quickly.

Next, my favourite bit… applying the colour! I went in with a thin first coat, and I found the varnish really smooth and easy to apply. The nail brush is tapered which allows it to go as close as possible to the cuticle without getting nail varnish everywhere. I followed  with a second coat and then the Top Coat, which was noticeably more shiny, although when it dried it was just normal.

NAILED

The colour and finish was beautiful – what do you think?, however, I found that the overall finish wasn’t gel-like at all, which was disappointing. On the plus side the varnish dried quite quickly, making it easier for me to get on with the rest of my day (as I was cheeky and did my nails at my desk at work)

After a couple days of wear I did notice a few chips here and there (but I do find my nails chip very easily), which you would definitely not get with shellac or professionally done gel nails, and the fact that the appearance of a gel finish was next to none, made the experience disappointing.

However, if you are looking for a new nail brand and are pulled in by one of her 28 shades, which is a quite vast range, I would definitely go for it, as I feel the colour selection is great and the names are cool and quirky.

What do you think, have you tried Rosie Fortescue’s NAILED LONDON range yet? Will you be? Let me know, I love interacting with you x

6 Beauty Products I Wish I NEVER Bought

Over the past few months I’ve accumulated  a lot of beauty products, LOADS of which I’m a fan of and would definitely repurchase, but there’s been a few that I’m just NOT feeling, no matter how much I try to use and get used to them, so I thought I’d share my experiences.

First off is Sleek’s Matte Me. I bought this lippie last month on my hunt to find the perfect matte lipstick – I’m actually obsessed with any matte look but I find it hard to find colours that sit well against my skin tone. I decided to give these a go, they were cheap and every one had been raving about them. I picked up Birthday Suit that had been sold out everywhere and Fandango Purple. However, these lippies looked terrible on me and felt really drying and papery on my lips – am I the only one? 

sleek matte lip

Next up is NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturiser. I’ve really got a love hate relationship with NARS, they have beautiful products that I would love to try, but their foundation shades just don’t cater to my skin tone, which leads me on to this product. I bought this tinted moisturiser for a holiday I was going on – I didn’t want to wear makeup, but I didn’t want to go bare faced, so I thought a tinted moisturiser would be the way to go. I bought this tinted moisturiser in Polynesia, which was the darkest they went up to (i don’t think they’ve got anything darker) but it definitely wasn’t my shade even after being recommended it in Selfridges. I was also disappointed with its coverage.

nars

One thing that really annoys me when applying makeup is my visible pores. It’s one thing I would definitely change if I could, but I’ve come to learn that no matter what I do, nothing tremendously improves their appearance. I bought this Garnier Smoothing Correcting Primer, and after reading what it could do for me, I was sold! I did notice a difference in it smoothing over my pores, making my makeup look that extra bit flawless, however, it made me super SHINY! – absolutely not a good look, especially as I suffer with oily skin.

I’m sure you know by now that I’m in love with Nails Inc from my last nail inspired post. I received this Nails Inc Nail Polish in Uptown for Christmas, and I instantly fell in love. It truly is the perfect nude pink. I love it, but sadly it just doesn’t suit me 😦

nails inc

I think it would suit a fairer skin tone though, but to be completely honest, I just like looking at it *covers face in shame*

Carrying on with the whole lip pie saga, I recently found out that NYX is now available on ASOS- yes, hunny! I had heard so many people raving on social media about NYX products, saying they were really good and super affordable, so I thought I’d give them a go. I would never normally recommend buying lip gloss/ lipstick products online as you just don’t know if the colours you’re seeing are true to life, but I went with it anyway – more fool me!

NYX

I chose Prague in the soft matte creme and Merengue in the butter gloss, which really do look beautiful, but look terrible on me. Again I found the matte gloss felt papery on my lips – I think this is a sign that I stick to matte lipsticks as I just don’t find matte glosses are my cup of tea. Does anyone else have this problem?

The last item on my list is Decleor Aroma Night. This is a night balm, which you put on after cleansing your face. I found this product left my skin sooo hydrated and smooth, however, it STANK. The smell was just not pleasant and actually put me off, because it’s all over your face, you cant escape it lol. The only thing I could compare it to was black Liquorice, like those black jack sweets lol. I wouldn’t say this product was a complete fail, but I won’t be re-purchasing, simply because of the smell.

DECLEOR

So tell me, what products have you been loving and hating? Let me know x

My Hair Disaster!

This is all about the time I ended up with pink/blonde roots and burgundy ends! YES you read that right!

IMG_7127
This is the only photo I could find with my pink roots – but it doesn’t give it justice, thank god!

For us girls, our hair – as much as we like to deny it, is a big aspect of our appearance. We love to take care of it, colour it, cut it and play around with different styles, so when it goes wrong it’s very much a big deal – it’s kind of like having a big spot on your face – Everyone will pretend they don’t see something majorly wrong, but we all know the problem, its right…there! And sadly, it’s an unspoken etiquette that I’ve experienced all too well.

So if you didn’t already know, I’ve had dreadlocks for about 8 years (take a look at my recent hair post) – and very recently cut them into a lob – the length and weight of my hair was just too much.

Anywho, one day I decided to dye my hair red! I love seeing coloured dreads and I just wanted a change. Throughout my childhood my parents never really let me experiment with my hair, which is why I thought I’d finally give it a go.

Once I decided on the shade of red I wanted (I think it was postbox by Schwarzkopf), I visited my usual hairdresser, who I don’t actually think is a trained hair colour specialist, but I did it anyway and it looked bomb! I was so happy!DSC01245

Being a red head was all I imagined lol, I constantly got compliments, even got a new nickname – rasta red! But very soon I learned it was too much to maintain.
I was colouring my hair too often in order to keep its deep colour, which led to my hair becoming super damaged.

I decided to leave the colour for a few months, while treating my hair, using natural products and Jamaican Castor Oil, which really thickened up mu roots.

Skip forward, I had a holiday to Barbados coming up and wanted to have my hair colour popping again, so I booked an appointment to bleach my dark brown roots so the red colour would catch and then colour the rest of my hair.

Well. What a mistake that was.

You know when you sit in the chair and you just don’t feel confident. Like you know something’s up.

All I remember was looking in the mirror and seeing blondey/ginger roots. Errrrm is it meant to be like this? “Yeah, yeah it will be fine, just wait ‘til I put the colour on” – was what my hairdresser replied. To be honest I should have known it could only end badly.

Instead, I decided to stay put and watch my hair being put to the test.

You know when you just don’t know what to do – cry, laugh, refuse to pay?

I left the shop in utter shame, no confidence and a greasy head, smh!
My roots were pink with blonde baby hairs and burgundy ends, three tones in one.

I knew it was game over as everyone on the bus home was just giving me that sympathetic look.

I went to Barbados looking ‘interesting’ to say the least. Everyone told me it wasn’t as bad as I thought it was but talking to my sister about it, and now she actually admits that it was terrible – thanks sis x

I guess the moral of the story is go to a qualified colourist and listen to your gut feeling!

I can obviously laugh at this now, but it’s taken so much for my hair to get back to normal, although I am thinking of colouring my hair again… what can I say, I’m a gluten for punishment.

I know I’m not alone though, what dire hair mishaps have you been through, I really want to hear your stories, I can’t be alone on this one. x

Liebster Award – I’ve Been Nominated!

I’ve been trying to write this post for 3 days now, life has just been hectic, but I’m so happy to finally be doing it!

The lovely Kat from Kat Today and Laura from Laura Living Life, kindly awarded me with the Liebster award – I’m still chuffed that people other than my mum and sister read my blog, so it’s amazing to me that Kat, all the way from Oz  and Laura found by little old blog in the sea of millions.

Im so grateful, that they had a peruse and thought of me when recommending me for this award – I haven’t been blogging for long so it’s nice for my content to be appreciated, so go check them out and show some love over on their blogs! They both have amazing style, great beauty reviews, and interesting opinion pieces… and Laura has some rather hilarious parenting posts, I love reading and i don’t even have a little one yet!

Over the past few weeks I’ve seen a lot about the Liebstar Award across many blogs I follow and across Twitter. It’s a brilliant idea to promote new blogs and get to know others within the blogging community, so I’m glad to get the chance to take the part in nominating my fave blogs – although a lot of them have already been nominated.

So the way this award is set up is that I answer questions sent over by Kat and Laura, and then nominate another 11 bloggers who I think are deserving of this award and send them 11 questions to answer! Lets get this show on the road…

Kats 11 questions for me:

Why did you start blogging?
I started blogging for many reasons. I’ve wanted to start a blog for years now, and I kept on putting it off – what did I have to offer that wasn’t out there already? After working nearly a year non stop 9-5 I was getting demotivated. My life was just wake up eat, work, eat, sleep (high importance for the eat bit lol) So i thought it was time I did something for myself. I’ve taken up so many hobbies in the last few months, but I never stuck to them as they weren’t things I was really passionate about. My boyfriend kept on encouraging me to blog, so I took the plunge. I was initially so nervous as I hated promoting my writing, but getting to know the blogging community – I love it!

What is your most prized possession?
I would have to say my phone, which is really sad when you think about it, but, it literally has everything I need to get through the day. If I happen to leave it at home by accident, I have to turn back and get it, no matter where I am. The more I type the more I’m realising how sad my dependence on my phone is– bring back the days when I didn’t care if I had credit to phone people much less tweet!

Which of your blog posts are you most proud of?
I have to say I’m proud of all of the blog posts I put out. To some reading my blog, they may have their faves, but, I do put a great amount of time and thought into every single post, so it’s nice when I get comments, like, retweets and all that jazz.

What do you admire most about yourself?
I have a great work ethic. I also get quite a few comments about my lips, which is weird but I like my lips so yeah…

What does a normal day in your life look like?
During the week my days are very monotonous. I wake up at 6:30, jump in the shower, get ready for work, leave my 7:15, drive to work, work, have lunch around 2:30 (this is normally have a soup/ pub lunch or a cheeky nandos), finish off some work tasks, drive home, get in around 7:30 chill with the fam for about an hour & have dinner, write a blog post/ join a twitter chat, FaceTime bae, then go sleep. Bored? Yeah, so am I!

Number one wardrobe essential?
For me it’s comfy pair of jeans. I live in jeans 24/7 so I always invest in good quality jeans. I love G star, but they’re quite pricey. Topshop is another favourite, but I do want to treat myself to a nice pair of levi’s

Best mistake you’ve ever made?
I have no idea- guess I’m just perfect!

What is a piece of advice you’d like to share?

  • Go for what you want in life.
  • If you don’t ask, you don’t get.
  • Don’t take peoples opinions about you seriously. People change, but as long as you know who you are everything else doesn’t matter.

Drink of choice?
For everyday I love a good Coffee, but, if I’m going out it has to be a refreshing Mojito or a fruity Asti – cant go wrong!

Beauty product you absolutely cannot go without?

My MAC Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation. THE best foundation I’ve bought to date – try it!

What inspires you?
So much –  My family, my boyfriend, friends, blogs, celebrities, Instagram, art, food (lol), music.

Laura’s 11 questions for me:

How long have you been blogging and what made you start?
I’ve been blogging for less that 3 weeks!I’ve wanted to start a blog for years now, and I kept on putting it off – what did I have to offer that wasn’t out there already? After working nearly a year non stop 9-5 I was getting demotivated. My life was just wake up eat, work, eat, sleep (high importance for the eat bit lol) So i thought it was time I did something for myself. I’ve taken up so many hobbies in the last few months, but I never stuck to them as they weren’t things I was really passionate about. My boyfriend kept on encouraging me to blog, so I took the plunge. I was initially so nervous as I hated promoting my writing, but getting to know the blogging community – I love it!

Describe yourself in 3 words?
Confident. Kind. Reserved.

Where do you see yourself in five years time?
I see myself in a better job, with a  successful blog, travelling the world with my boyfriend who better be my husband – hint hint lol (I am joking, really)

What is your favourite holy grail product?
So I would say my MAC Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation, and my Body Shop Camomile Makeup Remover.

High street or highend fashion?
High Street. I can’t afford high end. Yet!

What is your favourite meal?
That’s so hard, I LOVE food! It has to be Spaghetti Bolognese

Who are your top 3 Vloggers?
Another Girl’s Life, Tasha Green & Samantha Maria – Cant get enough of ’em!

Who are your top 3 bloggers?
Another Girl’s Life, Gracie Victory & Coco’s Tea Party

Where is one place you would like to visit?
I would love to visit either Jamaica or Ghana next, they’ve been on my list for too long!

If a celebrity had to play your life, who would you want it to be?
I have no idea! Tessa Thompson or a young Lauryn Hill from Sister Act 2 days

So now it’s my turn to nominate 11 bloggers… I choose

ASOS Wish List

One thing I love to do when insomnia hits is online shopping. It doesn’t help that I stare endlessly into my bright phone screen when I need to go to sleep – and it’s definitely not so good on my bank balance either! But ASOS is my go-to app on my phone when boredom strikes.

Recently I have been struggling with what to wear, not just to work, but even on the weekends and quite frankly it’s just not cool – Is anyone else in a style rut? My wardrobe is a shambles at the moment. I have a very outgoing personality, however, my clothes don’t really reflect that. I’m starting to feel as though I need some friends who are stylists, as I obviously don’t know how to dress!

I’m guilty of buying clothes for a specific occasion and never wearing them again, so, after one to many times my wardrobe has made me late to work, I’m deciding to consciously buy clothing items, which will help me save money in the long run and help me pick out a stylish, somewhat trendy outfit for every day life, more easily.

My wardrobe is in dire need of a revamp, and as Spring is literally round the corner, I decided to build a ASOS wish list filled with timeless pieces and a few statement threads that I know can be styled with other already existing pieces in my wardrobe.

I currently live in jeans and anything black or grey 24/7, so I’m hoping to wear a bit more colour throughout Spring, I’ve got a strange obsession with pink at the moment too, and I say strange because I don’t view myself as a girly girl, but pink hues at the moment are EVERYTHING to me… anyway, here’s what I’ve been lusting after.

Slide1

I’m a simple kind of gal as you can probably tell from my wish list, but I do love a splash of colour now and again, so let me know if you have any pieces you would recommend, also what’s your favourite store? I feel like I live in anything ASOS/ Topshop – it’s just the easiest option X

Nail Your Style – My Fave Nail Polishes for Spring!

Nail Your Style - My Fave Nail Varnishes

Can you believe there are exactly 24 days until it’s officially Spring – where has the time gone?

Spring has nearly sprung and while the weather has been transitioning, so has our beauty and fashion style. We’re taking on more fresh colours and putting away dark shades – although I do love rocking an Ox Blood shade at any time of the year! So of course this should be applied to the little details we love to take care of, like our nails.

I’m a huge collector of nail varnishes and nail products. No, seriously. After a major clean out of stale, gloopy polishes, I now have about 200 nail varnish bottles in my room right now – so let me take you through a few of my favourite nail hues that I’m loving at the moment, and of which can be perfectly worn with the onset of spring in sight.nails3

First off, is my Mavala Nail Care Set is tha bomb! I usually use these products before my choosing my actual polish shade, as these help to repair and strengthen my nails. After shaping and buffering my nails, I’ll coat them in Mavala’s Scientifique – a nail hardener, then go in with a two step nylon fibre base – which has a rough texture, and seal which acts as another protective layer. I really do recommend these products as they have helped keep my nails in good shape after they became damaged and very brittle – too many trips to the nail salon 😦

nails5

Next, I go in with my fave shade of the moment. This week it’s Essie’s – Jamaica Me Crazy. The name of this polish alone is what drew me to buy it – I do love a cheesy play on words – but I think the real reason is that I’m having holiday blues, can’t stand this British weather at the moment… the shade is super cute too lol!

Normally I do two layers, one thin first layer, then a second thicker layer to make the colour really pop. (I rarely use a base coat as I already use the Mavala products before any actual nail varnish and I find it just get too thick otherwise and takes forever to dry)

As I do my nails on a weekly basis – It’s way too time consuming to paint my nails more than that – I do have a cute selection of nail colours that I feel compliment the time of year.

I’m really loving pink/berry tones as they look great against my skin tone and are perfect for the time of year, but if I’m feeling a bit daring, the electric blue and hot red are definite options.

Nails Inc-Victoria | Essie-Fifth Avenue | OFAT-Tuberose| Essie-It’s Genius! | Essie-Jamaica Me Crazy! | Nails Inc- Devonshire Close | Nails Inc- Baker Street | Nails Inc-Victoria +Albert

When I’m really in the mood I finish with a lovely top coat – Nails Inc’s Top Coat Kensington Caviar… but let me warn you… its stinks!

What nail colours do you love at the moment? Have you found any hues perfect for spring?

Not that I need to but, I would love to find some more colours and branch to different brands – as you can see I’m a hardcore fan of Nails Inc and Essie!

My Top 10 Tunes!

SONY DSC

With the release of such good tunes recently, it’s only fitting that I let you in on my top 10 favourite tunes right now. I just love, love, love a tune with good base, so these wireless noise cancelling Bose headphones are doing it for me right now. I’m a massive fan of Hip Hop and RnB, so whether I’m driving about, chilling at home or trying to focus at work, better believe I’m listening to these tunes!

SONY DSC

  1. Rihanna -Work
    It would be a crime not to have this as my top 10! For about 2 weeks now this song has been on replay in my car, it’s a good hype tune and wakes me up preparing me for a long day at work. The music video was released too and I’m just getting pure Bajan vibes, you can be sure to catch me doing a little whine in my seat too! Don’t you just love the chemistry between Drake and Rihanna?
  2. Drake – Summer Sixteen 
    If you have not heard this tune, where have you been, under a rock? I’m on and off with Drake, but this song is great for getting pumped and if you wan a just get gassed.
  3. Kanye West  – Real Friends
    I’ve heard a lot of mixed reviews about Kanye’s latest album but I’m feeling a few songs off of TLOP (The Life of Pablo)  I mean, who doesn’t love to love Kanye – or love to hate him! On a real though, this song had me in my thoughts and feelings – who are you real friends? Are you a real friend?

SONY DSC

4. Kanye West – Ultralight Beam
This song is just beautiful, powerful. Kirk Franklin, Chance the Rapper, Kelly Price & The Dream all on one track. This is a God dream!

5. Beyonce -Formation 
I mean do I really have to explain why I love this song *Flicks locs*

6. The Game – Do It To You 
Would you let The Game do it you? After listening to this song you might! I’m in love with The Game, I went to his concert a few weeks ago in Camden and it was ‘different’ to say the least. I hadn’t heard of this song until after though, and if you’ve seen his #FineNi**aFriday posts on Instagram you know what to expect!

7. KANO – GarageSkank
I’m new to Grime, but Kano is a legend, and from the song you can genuinely tell he had fun recording this track. It shows off his talent and cheeky side.

8. PARTYNEXTDOOR -Break From Toronto
This is one of those songs that you wish was longer. I have to listen to this about 3 times on repeat to get my fix lol

SONY DSC

9. D’Angelo – Betray My Heart
Forgot about D’Angelo? He didn’t win a Grammy this year for nothing

10. Chris Brown – Back To Sleep
The beat, the lyrics, damn Chris, come and set me back to sleep!

What tunes are you loving right now?  Leave me a comment, I always enjoy finding new music x

 

What’s In My Bag

 

FINAL

I’m so nosey, I just love reading and watching What’s in my Bag posts, so thought I’d do one myself!

After about a year’s worth of deliberation, trying to decide what bag I wanted to buy next, my siblings had, had enough of my indecisiveness and made the decision for me, they were kind enough to buy me a Michael Kors Camille Satchel for Christmas!

I’m so finicky with the types of bags that I buy. When I do finally buy one, I use it the time, so I guess it’s worth me taking my time right?

As you can see from the pic, I have A LOT in my bag, and actually have to clean it out daily, because I hoard so much.

But enough of that, let’s take a snoop around this bad boy! The first item in my bag is my Makeup Pouch. I carry this with me all the time. To be completely honest with you, I never really touch up my makeup throughout the day but, it’s always nice to carry -just in case, especially if I’m off out after work or staying at my boyfriends. If you want to see it’s contents check out my February Face post 😉

Next, I’ve got some nail stuff. I hate when my nails chip throughout the day and for some reason, it always happens. So instead of looking at my crusty nails at work and getting annoyed throughout the day, I decided to start carrying around Nails Inc’s Express Nail Varnish Remover as it’s easy and there’s no mess or gaffing with cotton pads and nail varnish removerand a nail varnish colour. I’ve actually become the go-to girl in my office if anyone needs a nail touch up lol. I’m currently loving; Tuberose by OFAT & It’s Genius by Essie.

NAIL STUFF

Along with my mini manicure set, I HAVE to have some hand cream. This is not even an option for me, I go through about 2-3 hand creams a month – I cant stand ashy hands on myself or others – a bit of cream never hurt anyone! This one is from Lush, the cream sinks into you hands and makes the supple – but I won’t go into that too much as I’ve got a Lush haul coming soon 😉

PERF

I have to carry around a scent or spritz, and at the moment I’m obsessed with Tom Ford’s Velvet Orchid,  Oh ma gahd, this scent is divine, it’s definitely seductive, it’s fresh, feminine and floral, I love it. And let me just say, it’s sooooo much better than black orchid – I don’t know why everyone lied about loving that scent, it was awful.

I live in the UK, so its a necessity to have an umbrella. This one has lasted me years though, it’s by Windbreaker so it doesn’t turn inside out, when the wind decided to attack, plus it’s got a little torch on the bottom which is a cute addition.

Always have to carry paracetamol.

PARA

I’ve got a thing about dry skin, I can’t stand it. I apply Carmex about 2000 times a day. so this is always in my bag, along with a few other lip products.

BOOKS

One of my New Year’s resolutions were to get organised, so I bought a diary which I carry everywhere now. On the topic of books, I’ve been reading the Kray Twins biography and it is so good, heard good reviews about the films, but need to finish the book first – you know what they say, the books always better!

Bose headphones are my life! Literally the best headphones ever. I love listening to music, and I like my base, so these are ideal. On the topic of music, what are your favourite playlists on Spotify? I’ve got Make Out Jams, R&B Jams 100, Grime Shutdown and Hip Hop Top Tracks on replay all the time when I’m driving.

Everything else in my bag are just my necessities, house & car keys, purse and gum.

I hope you enjoyed having a snoop, what are you carrying around daily?

Peircing & Tattoos: I’ve got no out of the ordinary piercing, I only have my ears pierced. As for tattoos, I do not have any yet but love the idea of getting a Mandala, although, I occasionally feel the best self expression is to be part of the minority and not get one *shrugs*.
Righty or Lefty: Righty
Dream Holiday: I would love to take a year out of reality and travel the world. i would visit places like; Australia, Kenya, Ghana, Hawaii, Jamaica, Brazil – basically anywhere that’s HOT
My First Concert: The first ever concert I went to was to see Drake in 2010. I’ve been to a few concerts and my favourite act has surprisingly been Snoop Dogg at Wireless.
My Favourite Film: This is the hardest question anyone could ask me. In my house we can watch a movie on repeat for weeks on end. So i’ll list a few; Inception, When Harry Met Sally, Sister Act 2, Brown Sugar and most recently CREED. I just love a good movie.
Favourite TV Show: I’ma a sucker for American Reality TV, series, political dramas and sitcoms. I love; Scandal, Modern Family, GIRLS…
Songs: Think Adorn by Miguel may be my favourite song EVER
Favourite Book: The Great Gatsby & Americanah – If you haven’t read, please do!
Magazines: I used to read magazines a lot, but i’ve cut down due to hoarding loads of copies in my bedroom. I currently enjoy reading Stylist and ES and the occasional Porter magazines on my commute to work though.
Style Icons: I would never class myself as being even minutely fashionable but I do love Rihanna and Karrueche’s style.
