Festival Fashion

Festivals are the only reason I look forward to summer. A great chance to explore with fashion, eat more, spend quality time with fam & friends but most importantly watch live music for FREE :) Here I am in my fabulous fired-up skirt, biker jacket from H&M, hat from H&M and boot from Milano.

I attended Liverpool International Music Festival at Sefton Park. Follow the team on twitter and hastag #LIMF

Special thanks to Marsha Ambrosius and Neon Jungle for retweeting.

Summer Style

I love this spaghetti strap coral top from New Look because its easy to wear and just perfect for this season. I teamed this with a stretchy blue denim from H&M and black sandal by Red-herring for Debenhams. My bracelets were made in The Gambia.

Graduate, Female, Unhappily Single and Twenty something

At 17 yrs old, I had my life planned out just before leaving school. I was going to University to study Commerce (now referred to as Marketing) and perhaps do my Masters after completing my Bachelors degree. I would meet the love of my life at University and by 25 we would be married. By 27, we would have a baby and then take a year out to explore the world. Who would look after the baby? Well, that’s what grandparents are there for. My mother or mother-in law can look after our beautiful baby whilst me and my hand-some, successful husband go travelling the world. After a year of global exploration, we return home to work hard and save as much as we can so we can afford a dream home in sunny somewhere.

I finished school but poorly passed core subjects in my GSCEs so I had to retake them. Another year added to my plan but who cares. I was determine things would work out anyways. I suddenly took ill which lead to a year off education. After recovering, I decided to enrol at College where I spent 3 years studying Business, which meant starting University at 22. Bloody ridiculous I thought! Still determined to meet Mr Right and get married by 25 though.

Fast forward twelve years…one part of the plan came through. I went to University and gained two first class degrees- BA Business and Marketing and MSc Marketing Management. The rest? Well still working on that. I am now a graduate, unhappily single, female in my last 20s and still wishing for that hand-some single man to sweep me off my feet or maybe just put a ring on it.  

So what I’m I doing about been single? Nothing really, I guess that’s why I’m still single. I’ve been reflecting on my life lately and thought I’m actually not making an effort to meet the right person for me. I spend most of my time blogging, working on fashion projects, sleeping and just surfing social media. If you're a graduate, unhappily single, female, twenty something with no active plans to change your current 'single' status to 'in a relationship', it’s time to make a change for a change to happen. You don’t want to be unhappily single, female and thirty something. Do you?

2014 MTV Video Music Awards

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards. The only video music awards to have hosted artists who chose to wear outfit made with meat aka Lady Gaga or not very much on aka Amber Rose (who is not even an artist). So what exactly are they celebrating? Well, lets just say some load of shit called Pop music. But that's non of our business...we only judge fashion. Here we go..

Solange Knowles in @hm Studio Collection and Ariana Grande in a Leather outfit.

Love both outfits because they are different from what we normally see on both of them. Solange looks great as always. A new take on the 2-piece tailored capsule. Ariana is bridging a new style- showing maturity. 
Jordin Sparks and BF Jason Derulo look well loved up on the red carpet. Love the outfit. 
Kendall Jenner, Mylie Cyrus, Chanel Iman and Beyonce all channel the classic colour 'black' on the red carpet. How amazing was Beyonce's performance though? 
Rita Ora has been working sleepwear trend lately. Love this red dress on her. Very Marilyn Monroe. Demi Lovato looks stunning too. 
Charli! What were you thinking? 
Red carpet make-up we love......

Jennifer Lopez in @Versace, Amber Rose and Iggy Azelea take on Silver.

Jennifer Lopez looks good but there is nothing new about this. She's played it safe again!! Cannot understand what Amber Rose was thinking choosing this outfit. Not only is it tacky, it's just utterly outrageous. Just as we are trying to give her credit for changing a new chapter, she takes us back to square one. Really awful!! Iggy's dress is nice but not good on her. Maybe next time...

The reality star trio hit the red carpet yet again. Only this time, they mis-match their outfit. Kylie Jenner and Kim West should swap outfit. Kendall looks perfect!!
