Last Weekend, I was lucky enough to bag myself a ticket to the 2017 Stylist Live A Festival of Inspiration in London. And what an experience that was. I went with my two lovely ladies, Jennifer Amani and Priscilla Okpan from Kim Dave Designs.The expo was held at Olympia London, which is massive. There were a variety of talks for everyone but sadly I didn’t get to see any other then including the one from Freddie Harrel from SHE Unleashed and Big Hair No Care. I actually went very late and I stood in the queue for the cloak room for over 45 minutes which meant that I missed most of the talks that bronze tickets holders could see.
And although I missed the morning sessions, I got to try out the BaByliss Smooth & Wave Secret. I tried Gordon’s Gin for the first time which wasn’t as dry as I thought it’d would be. There was food, there was clothes, jewelry(Discovered a brand called Emily Mortimer Jewellery) and there was even a catwalk show of the hottest 2017 Autumn Winter trends. Plus there was live music. I am sure I didn’t get to see everything because by 2 pm that Saturday Olympia was packed full of people and it was hard to move so we left to get away from the crowd.
Overall, it was a great experience. I had a fun day out with friends and with the bf who was there taking pictures. If i was to go there again, I will make sure I get there when the doors open. I also tried to vlog on the day and it will be on my channel. In the meantime, don’t forget to check out my latest YouTube video here and subscribe to my channel to stay up to date with new uploads.

With the return of the latest season and it being the penultimate season, I thought I’d do a post dedicated to one of my all time favour teen dram apart from the vampire diaries etc. The gang are back and AD is spying on their every move, and the girls as per usual are trying to outsmart AD. Spencer being the smarty pants of the group takes the lead and the rest of the group tend to all fall in line apart from my TV counter twinnie, the unpredictable, sassy, funny and fashionable Hanna. I mean this girl may not be some people’s fav cause she’s not the smartest or the most together person of the group for me she is relate-able, and is constantly reminds me of myself, maybe not the rich spoilt princess from Rosewood kinda similarity, just her behaviour, she is strong, a fighter and she like all the other girls has had to deal with some of life’s tricks (or lessons if that’s what you call em) she is my one of my to bad-asses, she’s not afraid to stand up and speak out even when it may not be the perfect timing. She’s a dreamer and has even bagged herself Caleb ( a reformed bad boy ??) she’s loyal and is a true friend. Hanna and her mum have been through so much together which is kinda (similar to the relationship between my mum and I – since my mum and dad spilt up when I was younger my mummy and I have grown up together until my mum met my stepdad and now I have a little seven year old brother who’s the cutest kid you’ll ever meet ☺️). I really love the Hanna Marin character and if I lived in fictional Rosewood maybe we could have been sisters ???. I really cannot wait to see what this Season brings.
I am very, very, sad ? that it’s ending for now; you never know maybe just like Prison Break the TV show, ??it might be brought back.
Enough about my love for Hanna, who’s your favourite Rosewood babe or dude and why?? ☺️

For as long as I can remember, I have always shy away from being the centre of attention. I know you’re probably thinking, how can not love being the centre of attention if you are a wanna be blogger?? Because I struggle like most of you with self-confidence, like most days you will probably find me hiding behind tall people on the train trying to avoid eye contact with everyone It sounds very sad but it probably isn’t that bad. Even when i am walking down the road and someone is checking me out, I seriously turn around and see if someone’s behind me. And its beginning to over take my life, I walk without any confidence in my walk and having big noticeable boobs like me makes it even worse – I have on countless occasions wandered what life will look like as smaller boobed person because (i) I seriously struggle to find tops that fit me well without riding up to my chest (I have to actively put my tops down mostly all the time because they look very funny when they ride up to the chest) And (ii) I feel that social media actually does not seem to promote positive body image especially with the fashion world obsessed with what they regard as perfection I sometimes looks at myself and feel like I am not perfect; which is why I keep wanting to change things about myself. Guess what NO ONE IS PERFECT – there is always one thing that everyone would love to change about themselves which is why the body argumentation industry is ever growing and you have people who are addicted to plastic surgery.
I am currently working on getting these negative thoughts out my head because one thing I have learnt in my life is that I am not like everyone else, I do things when it’s my time to do that thing. And I have seen and met such amazing beautiful people inside and out that social media would not consider to be perfection +who wants to be like everyone else anyways. If everyone was the same life will be dull and boring.
If you like me struggle with accepting what you look like, just know that I am sure all the people you idolise struggle with this too – so try to stop stressing, you are beautifully and wonderfully made.
Have a fab day and please leave your comments below of your own personal struggles or your thoughts on this post. And i hope you like my little rant.
BTW – how cheesy is this post title 🙂
