NUTHIN' BUT A 𝐆 THANG

CULT NY BEAUTY BRAND GLOSSIER LAID ON A PRETTY PINK POP-UP IN LONDON LAST WEEK. I ENTERED THE ROSE SCENTED SPACE AND INSTANTLY DELVED FACE FIRST INTO THE ARRAY OF PRODUCTS I'D PREVIOUSLY ONLY EVER SEEN IN CYBER WORLD. I NOW FULLY UNDERSTAND THE HYPE BEHIND THEIR BESTSELLER BOY BROWN WHICH IMMACULATELY FRAMED BY BIG BROWNS, CLOSELY FOLLOWED BY THEIR GLASSY LIP GLOSS WHICH LEFT ME WITH A SEDUCTIVE SMACKER (BOTH WERE COPPED WITHOUT A SECOND THOUGHT). SKIN FIRST, MAKEUP SECOND, SMILE ALWAYS - IT'S A MANTRA WE SHOULD ALL SINCERELY SWEAR BY.

THIS AIN'T NO FAKE LOVE

I USED MY LUNCH BREAK LIKE A WISE OWL AND CHECKED OUT THE BUZZ ON OPENING DAY AT OVO LONDON LAST WEEK. I'VE VISITED THE TORONTO STORE SO IT'S A REAL TREAT FOR DRAKE TO BLESS US WITH OUR 'VERY OWN' LOCAL SPOT IN SOHO. THE ACTUAL QUEUE WAS SOME STREETS AWAY AND ONE WHICH I DIDN'T HAVE TIME TO JOIN ON THIS OCCASION, WOES. BRB PAPI.

AND BREATH

STEVE JOBS ONCE SAID, 'SOMETIMES LIFE HITS YOU IN THE HEAD WITH A BRICK. DON'T LOSE FAITH'. JUGGLING A FEW UNCERTAINTIES, THIS RINGS TRUE FOR ME RIGHT NOW. WE WILL PREVAIL.

SMOKE SOME DRINK SOME

GENERAL THEME OF MY WEEKEND CONSISTED OF CARRIE ANTICS BELOW OH AND A LARGE HELPING OF FRIDAY NIGHT FISH N CHIPS, EXTRA VINEGAR.

NASTY GALS DO IT BETTER

THE SOPHIA AMORUSO EMPIRE HAS FINALLY LANDED IN LONDON AND SO I VISITED THE NASTY GAL POP UP STORE LAST WEEK. TYPICAL ME FELL FOR THE FETISH ANKLE BOOTIES FOLLOWED BY A 'GIRL BOSS' POSE IN THEIR MAKESHIFT CARPETED STUDIO. I WAS SNUG AS A BUG IN A RETAIL HAVEN RUG.

HIP HOP HONORS

QUEEN BEY GOT IT ABSOLUTELY SPOT ON AS 'THE ORIGINAL QUEEN BEE' IN HER RECENT INSTAGRAM HOMAGE. SLAYING DOUBLE C'S IN HER HAIR, DOUBLE D'S ON HER CHEST AND A DOUBLE THUMBS UP FROM ME.

DIRTY DISNEY

ORIGINALLY I WAS GOING TO WEAR A SKELETON BODYSUIT TO MY HALLOWEEN PARTY THIS YEAR BUT AFTER STUMBLING ACROSS A BARELY THERE POCAHONTAS/NATIVE AMERICAN COSTUME IN MY LOCAL TRAID CHARITY SHOP I WAS INSTANTLY SWAYED. A FEW QUID SPENT AND A HANDMADE NECKLACE LATER I WAS TRANSFORMED INTO POCA-FUN-TAS AND LIVED HAPPILY EVER AFTER.

RIHANNA x VOGUE ARABIA

FINE DINING

I CELEBRATED MY GIRL'S BIRTHDAY AT THE OPULENT ESSEX RESTAURANT SHEESH LAST WEEK. ALBEIT SURROUNDED BY CUTESY COUPLES, WE SOAKED UP THE HYPNOTIC LIVE JAZZ AND IMMERSED OURSELVES IN A TRULY ENCHANTING EVENING THAT OVERFLOWED WITH BELLINI'S AND BANTER.

KIM KARDASHIAN x VOGUE MEXICO

"I AM EMPOWERED BY MY BODY. I AM EMPOWERED BY MY SEXUALITY. I AM EMPOWERED BY FEELING COMFORTABLE IN MY SKIN. I AM EMPOWERED BY SHOWING THE WORLD MY FLAWS AND NOT BEING AFRAID OF WHAT ANYONE IS GOING TO SAY ABOUT ME."

SELFRIDGES x AWGE

"THE BODEGA IS SIGNIFICANT BECAUSE MINORITIES OWNED IT - HISPANICS, ARABS, AND KOREANS. OUTSIDE OF NEW YORK CITY, YOU DON’T EXPERIENCE THE WHOLE TRADITIONAL BODEGA FEEL. YOU DON’T SEE CATS LYING ON THE BREAD, OR ASLEEP ON THE RICE. ULTIMATELY, IT’S ABOUT INCLUSION. DIFFERENT ETHNIC MINORITIES COMING TOGETHER AND LIVING TOGETHER COHESIVELY - AND THIS HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR DECADES. THAT’S WHY I’M BRINGING THIS FUSION OF DIFFERENT CULTURES, MANIFESTED IN ONE AWGE BODEGA. IT IS GHETTO, BUT NOT TRASHY, WHICH IS VERY TRUE FOR NEW YORK CITY."

MONEY BAGS

ENTIRELY DRIPPING IN SWAROVSKI CRYSTALS, THE ALEXANDER WANG x JUDITH LEIBER DOLLAR DOLLAR BILL BAG GOT BITCHES OUT HERE LOOKING LIKE A BAG OF MONEY. DON'T ASK THEM FOR SPARE CHANGE.
