On a lovely Sunday a week ago I took a lovely walk around Dulwich Park and had a tasty Italian lunch with my cousins, I've recently been working very hard and it felt great to go out for a Sunday walk and bond with the family. And of course I had to take some blog photos!
Lately I've wanted to have more fun with fashion, in winter it gets harder to fully express my style because I'd much rather cover up. But on this day the chill wasn't gonna stop me, I bought this off the shoulder top from Monki a few weeks ago after visiting FrameStore - a very cool production studio, they created the visual effects for Gravity the Film! Anyway I digress, I love this top because it's makes any outfit look dare I say "shexy", I paired it with my favourite embroidered jeans from Daisy Street they add a bit of fun to my wardrobe and old skool vans that go with anything and everything. Fashion should be fun and I'm becoming a little more expressive with my wardrobe hope you can too.
To end this post I wanted to touch on mental health, it's incredibly important to check in with yourself daily to see how you feel. And whatever the feeling have the courage to work on it if it needs attention, putting your mental health first will benefit other parts of your life.
I have been trying to take better care of myself physically, mentally and spiritually - sometimes I neglect myself and I can let stress takeover, often forgetting to Stop, Relax and give Gratitude.
It feels good to be back

Today I had a dream that I reconnected with an old friend I haven't seen for a while, in the dream we sat and talked about what we had been up to and how much we missed each-other. He smiled just like he used to, his eyes lighting up and the creases in his smile making way for his pearly white teeth.
Dreams are like that, they give you hope and a sense of freedom, I personally dream all the time mainly about people, events and needing a wee. This month has been a pretty special one, since I was a little girl I've always wanted to live my dreams, for reality to touch and merge with them, for the first time, it is. I've been working really hard and pushing myself in more ways than I have ever done, by the time I'm home I have sore feet and tired eyes and set my clock for 5am again to do it all tomorrow. What ever your dreams are they are worth fighting for, put in a little extra effort, believe in the magic of life and possibilities, leap from your dream into reality.
Above I'm wearing my favourite pink culottes from Zara, I paired them with a white vest and white cut-out boots for a little edge, I love how headscarfs look so my mum kindly showed me how to tie this one. I started my new internship too as you know I was at AOL for two months and now I'm interning at Ogilvy and Mather - it's great to be learning new things and expanding my creative outlets. Hope you do something you're proud of this week !
Hey beautiful people, I have some exciting news! I just published a blog post on Huffington Post about my hair journey and what I wish I knew before going Natural! You can read it here
Remember what I said about going out of your comfort zone? I feel like I need to pinch myself, let me know what you think <3
After being ill last week i'm happy to be back in full health and kicking butt! It's so funny because we take our health for-granted until we don't have it, so if you are healthy and well take a moment to give some gratitude. Personally I hate having summer flu's so I'm happy to be back at work and creating new content. Here's a photo I made today featuring a future post, I've been learning photoshop - i'm still rusty but thought I'd share this with you. It feels good to be out of my comfort zone and learning something new! If theres anything new you want to try, challenge yourself this week! Go On! Hope you enjoy this weeks playlist!
