Woman Empowered

Tuesday, 11 July 2017

Be empowered and empower others. It is always nice to see women especially uplifting each other. Us women have had to work 10 times as hard to get to as far as men, a lot of progress in terms of gender equality has definitely taken place within the last 100 years, but come on, are you telling me it has taken that long for change to happen and we are nowhere next done yet? Crazy right?

For this reason I find it really important for us women to support each other. I mean if we can't even come together to support each other how are we then supposed to form a united front? I mean after all together we are stronger!

Here are few things I do to empower those around me everyday:

Links of London

Thursday, 29 June 2017

For those of you that don't know, Links of London is a jewellery brand founded in 1990 but later acquired by Folli Follie (a global jewellery group) in 2006 so the brand is pretty accessible worldwide. 

In a recent collaboration with links of London, I absolutely love my sweetie bracelet. To me what separates it from your average bracelet is the ability to personalise it which makes it more special. I use Jewellery to accessorise my outfits and the fact that I am able to add charms which have personal meaning to me adds sentimental value to the jewellery. So far I have two charms on my bracelet, a globe charm and a compass charm. I am very passionate about both. To me they both somehow symbolise my love for travelling in exploring the world. The compass charm also symbolises me being a free spirit, I feel i'm the kind of person who just goes with the flow and sees what direction fate wants to take me. 

What I look for in jewellery is a piece that is versatile, I see jewellery as an investment and after spending all that money you want to be able to wear it with pretty much anything right? I don't know about you guys but I do! My sweetie bracelet is just that. As well as being worn on its own, it is perfect for stacking. I have worn my bracelet with my watches, rings and other bracelets for a more modernised feel. As I was able to accessorise it with charms of both silver and gold, I feel this made the bracelet a lot more transferable as I am able to mix it in with both plain gold or plain silver jewellery styles. 

Below is how I have styled my sweetie bracelet. Let me know your thoughts! 

Sunshine Yellow

Wednesday, 21 June 2017

Yesterday was the hottest day of the year so far! I was absolutely boiling, and little could be done to ease my discomfort. The only thing I could do was stay hydrated. Its such a pity that although when I would get hold of cold water it would turn warm within a few minutes. 

Despite the weather bothering me, I actually had a lovely day. I spent it with my friend jannine, we shot our outfits then headed of to a NastyGal event hosted at WAH nails in Soho. I really liked the NastyGal collection and would definitely love to own some of the pieces. 

We then went on to get our nails done, which was very well needed in my case. I usually paint my own nails or at least I try but they obviously don't come out that great. They always seems to look as though they are turning out well until I have to do my right hand, so I think in my case it is best to leave it to the professionals.

Anyways, enough of my ranting, I hope you like my outfit pictures, My sandals have now gone on sale, I am a bit annoyed because I only got them last week but I guess it's good news if any of you guys like it. Let me know you thoughts!
