Bloggers Love fashion week pre-party.

Now who doesn't love a party? A party before the party is even better! I attended the Bloggers Love fashion week pre-party on Monday. As with all Bloggers Love events, it's a great chance to meet bloggers and get to know established and up and coming brands. The atmosphere was very chilled as there were various areas for us bloggers to explore- from photography to speed dating to borrowing clothes- it was a great warm up event for the main attraction. Bring it on! Plus! The candy bar was yummy!
Admittedly, I wasn't snap, snap, snapping away- I was DRENCHED! Actually, that is an understatement! I do not know how my large coat allowed me to get so soaked! You'll think I didn't have one- I mean, look at my jeans! Haha!
Anyways, thanks Bloggers Love for a lovely event! xx
Thanks Roxanne Campbell for the nails. Lush! 

Crop top: ASOS
Jeans: TK Maxx
Heels: Primark (...I know!) Very Ted Baker-esque. 

Until next time,

Crazy Bear.

I've realised that I have not done a food post in a while. Apologies. Anyways, here is one for you. Sort of. Haha! Over the weekend a lovely friend and church sister celebrated her 30th's birthday party at 'Crazy Bear' in Fitzrovia. It was fab! Just like you Stacey :D
From the decor, to the lighting and interior of the toilets, the place felt very exclusive and the ambiance was just right. We were situated downstairs where the bar is located and 'small plates' are served.
I got sushi (California roll, of course) and tempura prawn. Both delicious! The cocktails were awesome. I purposefully ordered at the bar because of how it is designed- had not seen anything like it- the bartenders were on level with the table! Haha!
Anyways, I recommend going here for a sophisticated birthday dinner/ meet up with friends or that special date! Come with money too!! They don't joke when it comes to that! Haha!
 
With the beautiful birthday girl. She's the best in the business when it comes to eyelashes- check out her website here.  
The restrooms!! Glitter and hidden doors!!
 
Bathroom selfie! 
 
The night didn't end there... we headed over to Heron Tower and got some deserts at Duck and Waffle! ... More please!
 
The infamous view from the lift.
 

HAPPY BIRTHDAY Stacey! Love ya! God bless xx

What I wore:
Dress: River Island.
Clutch: Car boot sale (£1.50)

Craxy Bear.

Jump into it.

Jumpsuits are such easy to wear outfits. Don't you think? They may make you look 'odd' or in a adult baby grow, but it's all about how you style it, eh?! This awesome find from Primark (!) is uber comfy!! I love a bit of kahki too- taking me back to my army cadet days. Haha! Paired with these 'flower power' wedges from ASOS, I'm all good to go for the summer. But we all know we never have a 'summer summer', so a coat is essential. I love my multi colour crazy print coat from RI, I wear it too often!
This jumpsuit would also look good with a statement necklace and a high ponytail, and heels!! More of an elegant evening look! 

Jumpsuit- Primark
Wedges- ASOS
Bag- Ted Baker

Africa: day and night.

I've mentioned numerous times on my blog that I love designing clothes, I love being unique with fashion! This here is something I got made whilst out in Rwanda (click here to check out my time there. I miss you Rwanda) and it's just so awesome! Our dressmaker was the best. I need her back in my life! Pronto!
In the first couple of pictures, I'm wearing the sweater over the peplum dress- it's a great day time look, paired with my flatform jellies. I love rocking this sweater with jeans too, super casual look.
Off comes the sweater to reveal the peplum dress in all its glory for a sensual night time look! It's formal, so would look good for a dinner or even in the office! I love it, and paired with heels- you're good to go on that night out!
Can we have a hand for the print??!! I must say, Rwanda has some awesome prints and I know I only skimmed the surface of what they had to offer!! 
Have you got any authentic African print clothes? I would love to see your designs!!

Until next time,

Teen Choice Awards: My 10 best dressed.

This past weekend saw the Teen Choice Award in LA. Boy, did it look fun! Oh to be a teen again... Sorry, I digress. The young celebrities rocked colourful and fun outfits, with co-ords being popular... clearly they are confident folk! Here's my top ten!
TEN
I'm loving Zendaya's new look. Cute and edgy. Matches her dress too! The bow back detail is sweet and it's a cool candy pink colour with classy cut outs. A+ for teen sass! It's oozing from you Zendaya!
NINE
This dress is okay I guess. I'm just loving the colour blocking and the palette. It's very summery and easy going. I reckon a high ponytail would suit this dress best. 
EIGHT
Love this co-ord suit. Chloe looks awesome in it! Great pairing with the barley there sandals too. The red and black, with this blod print are working well together and the simple bandeaux top works just fine! 
SEVEN
I would like to wear this dress in my 40s! Haha! Or now. The miss match of the print is lush! With the black as a backdrop, it's allowing the other colours to pop. Perfect shoe choice too! Picking one colour from the dress. The white stripes also gives it added boldness!! 
SIX
Ahhh this is cute. For some reason I'm thinking graceful swan haha! I love the shape and the colours. I love flower prints too, so all these ingredients are win win!!
FIVE
Kendall! You are looking stunning! This number is white hot! Seriously, girl is looking like she just came off the catwalk. Love! Great hair styling too. It's giving the jumpsuit its moment. The sheer panels mixed it up, which is always a plus.
FOUR
This outfit is simple, yes, but it's in the details. I love the hem and gold detailing of the skirt and the shoes! I have been looking for lace up shoes like this for a while (still on the lookout btw) and these, with this outfit, is just right!!
THREE
Another white hot number! This time, with lace. I love a good two piece, I do. This one is fab, with the heels and lippy. Lace is always sexy and feminine and it's done right here! Looking good Shay! 
TWO
Jordin you look ah-maze-ing! Seriously, your skin with this print...100% ! Haha! I love! The pants are high waisted too! The simple shoes works with this to a T. Perfect hair style choice too.
ONE
I just LOVE this print! I'm a sucker for a good print! This is so unique and cool! I WANT!! Nina looks great! I mean, it looks like a work of art, right?! This picture is not really giving it justice, but regardless, I'm loving it! Great shoes and hairstyle choice too. Is this affordable? If so, gimme gimme gimme! Haha!

What do you think?? Do you agree?

Until next time,

Barbie by Anne-Sophie Cochevelou.

*Seriously sorry for the lack of posts lately, been quite busy with things, life!*
I originally wanted to call this post 'Barbie earrings ... and then some. By Anne-Sophie Cochevelou'. But that was too long. Because, as you can see, Anne-Sophie does more than just Barbie earrings. The extravagant creative takes Barbie apart and tears her to pieces. Literally. And what she comes up with will surprise you...she plays with Ken and Lego too! I saw her showcasing her awesome collection at the recent Ram Place Fashion Market, and I could not leave without getting something. So I got a custom pair of Barbie earrings- with some purple in the mix (of course)! Pretty cool right? (Scary to some! Haha!). Check them out below!!
So cool!!!I'm just looking for the right event to wear them to! ... So unique! Here's more of her unique work, from earrings to necklaces to pendents- Anne-Sophie can make it for you!
 Check out these pictures Anne-Sophie took whilst making the earrings!
Anne-Sophie with the finished earrings!! LOVE!
Me rocking them with a purple jumper to match!!
THANKS! Anne-Sophie!! xx
