MTV Video Music Awards Red Carpet looks

Leave a Comment
I wanted September 1st to mark the date of my return to the blogging world... Since the burglary it's been a constant back and forth with the insurance company and so far I still haven't managed to get a replacement camera or laptop... However, as I type this from my (little) iPhone, I couldn't resist posting my favourite red carpet outfits from the MTV VMA's 2015. 
There were lots of really nice pieces, but here are my top 6...

Emily Ratajkowski wearing Altuzarra top and matching skirt

Gigi Hadid, wearing Emilia Wickstead

Taylor Swift, wearing Top and matching trousers by Ashish and gorgeous Christian Louboutin shoes

Hailee Steinfeld wearing Stella McCartney

...And a bonus!
Sorry (not sorry) this is epic! Ha!


Let me know your top 5 red carpet looks from the mtv vmas 2015.

I was robbed!

I uploaded a video last week about my return to YouTube after an unexpected delay.
I excitedly explained all I have planned for my channel; how the set backs only served to allow me more time to film/ edit great new content. Content I was proud of and looking forward to sharing...

...I returned home a few nights ago, to find that my house had been broken in to. they stole my laptop and camera- everything I need to record/ edit all my music, video and blog content. Including my art/ illustration portfolio.

The things taken, were specific to what I do... My career and business. (My other valuables were untouched)!
I can't further comment on that for now but it seems I won't be able to upload for a while...

This situation is horrible and I won't lie, when I saw what had happened and realised that countless hours of my work had been stolen. I sobbed... Its not about "stuff"- It's the violation of somebody going through your things and just taking whatever they want. I felt uncomfortable in my own home- I wouldn't wish this on anyone!

However!! I know that something great is coming out of this and I'm definitely not going to live in fear or defeat or sadness.
I am smiling as I write this because

I am BOLD and more determined than ever!xx



My Updated Shoe Collection

Leave a Comment

A few years ago, I did a YouTube video featuring my shoe collection. It was so long ago that I decided to do an updated version. 
 It was really fun but tiring to shoot due to the hours of awkward pose positions lol!

Here are some stills from the video...



I've had these red shoes from ebay for a while and I still get a great reception every time I wear them. Despite the fact that they are extremely uncomfortable!



When I saw these shoes in Schuh, I could hardly contain my excitement!! THEN when I found out they were on sale for £14, I nearly keeled over! 
The sequin detail took some getting used to, but the stack block platform heel and sole- more than made up for it!!




The chunky heels above are from New Look are so comfy. They remind me of summer.
They're simple but the colour adds a touch of stand out vibrance.


I gave details on these bad boys in a previous post about DiY Shoes



Check my previous post DIY Studded Shoes for more info about these shoes



These gladiator heels from NewLook have just the right amount of Rock chick edge


These denim shoes by Jeffrey Campbell are just beautiful! I love the spike detail and banana heel.


Check out the video for a more detailed look at the shoes and to listen to my upcoming single! 



Watch the video below to see my initial shoe collection. Throw back!!!xx


Fashion Fix: Red Alert!

Leave a Comment


For my channel relaunch debut, I wanted to start off a little... softly softly. So I kept the outfit kind of simple with this vintage red shirt and (tiny) zara skirt which was previously unworn...
During the editing process however, I wanted a way to liven up an otherwise tame looking video. So I opted for this tribal inspired pattern theme. I created the shapes in photoshop and for me it achieved the desired effect.





Shirt, Vintage
Skirt, Zara
Belt, River Island
Necklace, Primark
Boots, eBay
Hair, Eva's Wigs


The fabulous hair featured in the video is from Eva's wigs. Click here for an in depth review.

It took a while to edit this video... 
Have a look and tell me what you think!xx



Project 104

Leave a Comment

Project 104 is a brand I discovered during a press day at Utter Couture.
As soon as I walked into the room, it was the first collection I noticed.
I was immediately captivated by the kitsch designs and felt the nostalgic nod to my childhood. A throwback to those girlie swimming costumes I used to pine for; A cross between an oufit fit for Barbie and Baz Luhrmanns 1996 hit movie Romeo and Juliet.

My intrigue increased when I found out that the whole collection is limited edition.
The name 'Project 104' comes from the fact that the company produce only 104 pieces of each item. So you feel like you are wearing a piece of collectable art.

The fusion of art and fashion is evident throughout all the collections. I decided to produce my own piece of art work based on one of my favourite pieces called 'Loverpool' from the Paradise Found collection.



Here is Project 104's own description of the Loverpool swim suit;
Based on tacky tourist T-shirts from fictitious destinations
Project 104's Paradise Found collection is proud to invite you to:

LOVERPOOL 

Travel package seven night stay at gangstas habit dice resort

Including:
Visit to the Baby Butterfly Sanctury
Waterfall rafting through Loverpool rainforest
Rejuvenation at the Lemonade Lakes


Below is the new Collection My Body, My Shrine.

Hey Lovelies!

So my sisters Rachiannah and Gwyneth have started a Hair company called PoP HA!R Culture. 
As the new Creative director, my role is to create the visual branding and this image is one of many photos I took for them on our shoot a few days ago. 

The whole theme is vibrant and captures their personalities so well, I'm really happy with it!
I will post more images when they are done but I couldn't resist giving you guys a little sneak peek!

DIY Shoe #2 Spikes

Leave a Comment
Following on from my previous post, here are another pair of shoes I embellished. I bought these shoes from Nine West quite a few years ago. I really liked the heel but I wasn't so keen on the front and had been meaning to do something different to them. So I decided to add spikes to add extra detail.



 I marked where I would place the studs using a blue eye pencil. And then used a belt hole puncher to create all of the holes for the spikes to go through.


It was quite consuming but definitely worth it, as I'm really happy with the results.





DIY Shoes!

(Still from upcoming video)

I just love unusual shoes. If I have a pair that I find a little on the plain side, sometimes I will customize them to make them a little different.
I bought these shoes on eBay and they're very simple and nice but I wanted to vamp them up a bit to go with an outfit I was wearing for my birthday celebration a while back. I may repurchase these and keep that pair plain because the style is so classic.



I added some extra dazzle by stitching some old accessories to the heel.



The ankle boots below are the first pair of footwear I ever customised.


For more ideas, here's a video I shot a few years ago on how to transform your shoes...
