The weather has been good to us in London this week with loads of sunshine, but I’m still stuck on wearing dark colours. The sun crept up on us out of nowhere and I was caught off guard, I’m yet to do my summer shopping so whatever I found on my clothes rail just had to do. I feel like I never know what to wear, and you know what they say: when in doubt, wear black – so I did.

What I’ve been pondering on this week…

Every once in a while, when I take a break from running around like a headless chicken – I sometimes think about the effects of not walking the path God has set for me. Every single time this comes to mind, I’ve always just thought about what it means for me personally rather than considering how it impacts those around me.

The truth is others are waiting on you to inspire them, to clear the path for them or simply make the first move. You’re the stepping-stone to someone else’s greatness. By not stepping out, you’re not just hindering your own future or growth but also, directly and indirectly, affecting millions of others’. If you don’t get in shape and become the greatness God has created you to be, the world will miss out on what you have to offer. Be less afraid, say goodbye to procrastination and be the best you possibly can be, if not for yourself then do it for those who are waiting on you.



It’s me and the twinny’s birthday today. I remember talking about it at the very beginning of the year as if it were really far away and all of sudden, here we are.

I’m so happy we’ve been able to see another year, I’m grateful for the support system we have – our friends and family are really the bomb! They do so much to ensure we’re happy, and genuinely go out of they way to make sure we’re okay.

There’s nothing we love more than laughing and chilling with the people we love, and I thank God we’ve been able to do that from day one. Though there have been some very difficult and challenging times he’s pulled us through like a boss stronger than ever.

I look forward to what the future has in store for us knowing only the best is yet to come. Love you sister Linda – here’s to another 25 years (and many more) with you.




On the morning of this shoot, I just was not feeling well enough to get out of my bed, let alone put on makeup and find something nice to wear. But I remembered the promise I made to myself as last year came to a close, I wanted to be consistent and really go for this blogging thing. Not only did I see myself doing it long term, but it helped develop a lot of skills I would need for work or the future.

Often it’s so easy to give in when the going gets tough, when we’re asked to step out of our comfort zone to make something happen. The decision to do so happens within seconds – not because we don’t want to better ourselves but because a lot of us seek instant gratification instead of working for a delayed gratification, which is far more rewarding than the latter.

Making the decision to got out and shoot for this post meant I was one step closer to making my long term goal happen. You may not see a difference now – but remember that nothing will come to you unless you make the decision to go for it; every step counts even if it doesn’t seem like it.

So I had planned to have this post up on the first of January - you know, New Year new me and all that. But for some reason I just didn’t feel ready to come back, I wasn’t ready to commit, I knew if I returned to blogging I would have to be consistent. And that scared me a little, I didn’t know if I would be able to keep it up. But I knew I had to give it a try, I really enjoyed blogging and that was enough to get me back on here.

I re-evaluated my content and I wanted it to reflect all my interests. Though I love style, (and will still be doing a lot of posts on it) I will be venturing out and doing posts on other areas of my life - such as my faith, travels, food and many other things that aren't coming to mind right now. So I guess you can now call this a lifestyle blog, and I hope you’ll stick around for the journey.

Hope you’ve had a great start to the year. God Bless.

I have been slacking massively with my blog, and it turns out I just needed inspiration from some of my favourite bloggers.

Over the summer I decided to cut my hair, as I wanted a change and also a low maintenance style that was easily manageable. Little did I know that going short required more time and effort than any other style I have had, but I’ve learnt to work with it. Having realised that the pixie cut lifestyle is not for me; I guess I can look forward to trying other things.

I realise this outfit looks rather boring and is nothing out of the ordinary, but I really like the simplicity of the dress – plus I have been trying to refine my style and keep it basic, instead of over complicating it. As the weather continues to cool, and single layers fail to keep me warm, I’m sure I will be featuring a lot more pieces in my outfits.
