SNOWOMAN

SINCE LAST WEEK EVERY MORNING ON THE RADIO THEY'VE BEEN BLABBING ON ABOUT HOW IT'S MEANT TO SNOW, WELL FINALLY TODAY THE FLAKES FELL. IT WAS, WELL, PRETTY AND HOW PERFECT FOR IT TO GRACE US LITERALLY ON THE EVE OF DECEMBER. WE COULD ACTUALLY, FOR ONCE, BE HAVING A 'WHITE CHRISTMAS'. TOOK A QUICK SNAP OF MY 1ST DAY SNOW ATTIRE WHERE MY TOPSHOP WINTER ACCESSORIES TOOK CENTER STAGE AND ALTHOUGH THE SNOWFLAKES LANDING ON MY EYELASHES PREVENTED ME FROM WALKING IN A STRAIGHT LINE, I STILL LIKED TO HAVE THOUGHT I MADE A PRETTY COOL WINTER BUNNY.

P.S. THAT JACKET I CAN TELL YOU'VE GOT YOUR EYE ON, IS A LITTLE EXCLUSIVE SNEAK PREVIEW DESIGNED BY A BUDDY OF MINE WHO HAS MANY OTHER WONDERS UP HIS VARSITY SLEEVES...SOON COME.

ALWAYS COCA-COLA

PICKED UP A £1.50 COCA-COLA LIP SMACKER AT THE TILL POINT IN PRIMARK THE OTHER WEEK AND IT SMELLS JUST LIKE THE FIRST CLICK OF THE CAN, D.VINE. MY HONEY STICK HAD CONVENIENTLY JUST RUN OUT SO THIS BOTTLE POPPED JUST IN TIME. REMINDED ME OF THAT CLASSIC COLA CHRISTMAS AD TOO, 'HOLIDAYS ARE COMING, HOLIDAYS ARE COMING' AND WITH THE MISTLETOE HERE, YOU KNOW IT'S TIME TO SMEAR.

GOOD NEWS

ONE MORE THING BEFORE I SIGN OUT. GOLDEN GRAHAMS ARE BACK. THE CEREAL HAD BEEN DISCONTINUED IN THE UK DUE TO THE COST OF PRODUCTION AND LOW DEMAND. LOW DEMAND MY ASS, THE CINNAMON/HONEY/BROWN SUGAR FLAVOUR WAS MY MORNING COMFORT CRUNCH IN A BOWL. AT ABOUT 3PM (LIE IN) TODAY, I WAS ABLE TO TASTE THAT COMFORTING CRUNCH ONCE AGAIN WHEN I OPENED THE CUPBOARD AND THOUGHT I WAS STILL DREAMING. I ASKED MY MUM WHERE THE HELL SHE GOT THEM, SHE TOLD ME £2.49 IN TESCO. THANKYOU GOD, THANKYOU MUM AND THANKYOU TESCO.

WAVING THE FLAG FOR THE WEEKEND

LAST NIGHT I VALIANTLY WORE MY TOPSHOP FLAG HOTPANTS (REMINISCENT OF WONDER WOMAN AND THE GAGA/BEYONCÉ TELEPHONE DANCE SCENE) AND WE VENTURED OUT TO SHOREDITCH TO HIT WORK IT. AFTER WAITING AN HOUR IN THE F'ING COLD WE JAMMED TO THE BEST IN THROWBACK MUSIC WITH A HEAD TO HEAD WHITNEY AND 2PAC SPECIAL. THERE WAS A WHOLE LOTTA 'CALIFORNIA LOVE' IN THE ROOM AND WAITING IN THE QUEUE WAS 'NOT RIGHT BUT IT'S OK' COZ THE NIGHT TURNED OUT TO BE SOOO MUCH MORE THEN JUST, ALRIGHT. 

BASICALLY THE BEST BURGER

FRIDAY NIGHT AFTER MY USUAL ROUTINE OF WORK THEN MOSQUE I WAS INVITED TO DINNER BY MY BESTIE AND FAMILY TO BYRON. A BURGER BAR WHERE THE MEAT WAS FRESH, THE BUNS WERE SOFT, THE SERVICE WAS ON POINT AND THEY GOT EXTRA POINTS AND OVER EXCITEMENT FOR HAVING CREAM SODA ON THE MENU. AFTER MY MEAL I HAPPILY FILLED OUT A CUSTOMER COMMENTS CARD AND TOLD THEM THEY WERE 'WAY BETTER THAN THEIR NEIGHBOUR GBK'. TAKE A BITE OUTTA THAT.

SHE'S SO FLY LIKE THE BIRDS BE

WE'VE SEEN THE COCKATOO BIRDIE HAIR DO, NOW HERE'S THE SHOE. HARLEM'S PRINCESS, TEYANA TAYLOR WAS SPOTTED AT A JUICY COUTURE STORE IN BEVERLY HILLS THE OTHER NIGHT IN SOME STATEMENT STEPPING MOHAWK SUEDE SHOES A LA YSL. KEEPING THE OUTFIT LOW KEY SHE LET HER SHOES DO ALL THE 'HAWKING'.

TRY A TURBAN RELOADED

REMEMBER MY 'TRY A TURBAN' POST? WELL I GOT ONE AND I ERR, ROCKED ONE. TAKING MY LEAD FROM (PLUG ANOTHER PREVIOUS POST) 'DO I OR DON'T I LOOK LIKE' KOURTNEY KARDASHIAN, IT SAT COSILY WITH MY FUR JACKET AND A DITZY GRIN FOR GOOD MEASURE.

A FISH TALE

SORRY IT'S BEEN A TIRESOME, LATE COMING HOME, WORK THE NEXT DAY, COUPLA DAYS. YOU'RE NEVER FAR FROM MY THOUGHTS THOUGH, YOU DO KNOW THAT RITE? I'VE ALWAYS BEEN FASCINATED BY THIS VARIATION OF THE CLASSIC 'SCHOOL GIRL' PLAIT, IT'S CALLED A 'FISHTAIL PLAIT' AND RATHER REMINDS ME OF A MERMAID. SEXY AND EFFORTLESS WITH A TOUSLED MESSY FINISH, IT SEEMS LIKE A GOOD OPTION WHEN YOU'RE AT THAT TOO FRESH OR TOO GREASY HAIR STAGE (MINE USUALLY BEING THE LATTER - DRY SHAMPOO IS MY MAGIC IN A CAN). I'LL WEAR IT TO THE SIDE AND WHIP MY TAIL BACK AND FORTH.

THANK NICKI IT'S FRIDAY

TWO BIG NAMES IN THE GAME - MAC AND NICKI MINAJ ARE TEAMING UP TO RELEASE A SHADE OF LIMITED EDITION LIPSTCK CALLED 'PINK FRIDAY 4' INSPIRED BY THE SASSY RAP SUPERSTAR, HER PINK BARBIE-ESQUE LIPS AND HER DEBUT ALBUM 'PINK FRIDAY'. WHY PINK FRIDAY 4? WELL DUUUH, BECAUSE THE LIPPY WILL ONLY BE AVAILABLE TO PURCHASE ON 4 CONSECUTIVE FRIDAY'S STARTING FROM NOVEMBER 26TH THROUGH TILL DECEMBER 17TH. TRUE TO FORM, THE BARBIE HAD TO BE A BITCH ABOUT IT.

MEET NICO

LAST NIGHT MY ANIME OBSESSED FRIEND COMPARED ME TO THE 'ONE PIECE' MANGA CHARACTER 'NICO ROBIN'. YES I'VE GOT THE BROWN HAIR, FRINGE AND (SO I'VE BEEN TOLD) A CONSIDERABLE BOOTY FOR A LITTLE LADY BUT DEFINITELY LACKING IN THE BOOBS DEPARTMENT COMPARED TO MISS NICO HERE. STILL, I WASN'T OFFENDED, N FOR NISHA - N FOR NICO, SHE'S PRETTY HOT, CLEVER (SHE'S AN ARCHAEOLOGIST) AND FROM WHAT I'VE SEEN SHE BOASTS A STEAMY STREAK THAT BRINGS ALL THE BOYS TO THE YARD. FINE BY ME, ALTHOUGH FASHIONICO DOESN'T HAVE THE SAME RING TO IT DOES IT.

THIS DROVE ME WILD

TV IS USUALLY A BORE TO ME AND I'M A TRUE CHANNEL FLICKER BUT THIS HERE NEW AD CAMPAIGN FOR VOLKSWAGEN POLO CALLED 'LAST TANGO IN COMPTON' INSTANTLY PAUSED MY FINGER AND HAD ME IN AWE. IT FEATURES TWO OF THE WORLD'S BEST TANGO DANCERS, GASPAR GODOY AND MANUELA ROSSI DOING THE SEXIEST TANGO DANCE I'VE SEEN TO 'DON'T STOP' BY HIP HOP ARTIST ROC C. WITH THE STRAPLINE 'TOUGH. BEAUTIFUL. POLO', THIS INTERTWINING, BREATHTAKING AND EXTRA CLOSE BODILY CONTACT SEQUENCE AGAINST A HIP HOP BEAT WORKED WONDERS FOR ME AND COINCIDENTALLY ENOUGH I DRIVE A POLO TOO.

I LIKE THE WAY YOU MOVE

TODAY I'M EXCITED. IN AN HOUR FROM NOW I'LL BE TAKING INSTRUCTIONS AT A HIP HOP DANCE CLASS. I'VE ALWAYS FANCIED A BIT OF THAT J LO FLASHDANCE ROUTINE LIKE IN THE I'M GLAD VIDEO AND I NEEDED A MID WEEK SHAKE UP, SO WHAT BETTER WAY? APPARENTLY, AT £8 THESE CLASSES ARE CONFIDENCE BUILDING AND FUN, I CAN GET A WORK OUT AND LEARN SOME MOVES I MIGHT WANT TO USE ON A SATURDAY NIGHT. A WONDERFUL ALL ROUNDER IF YOU ASK ME. RIGHT, TAKING SOME TIPS FROM REGULAR WORKER OUTERS NICOLE, AMBER, KIM OR MADONNA I'VE GOT TO FIND SOME DAZZLING DANCEWEAR (EXCLUDING THE DESIGNER HANDBAG) AND OFF I GO TO RAISE DA ROOF.

WATCH HIM 'HYPNOTIZE U'

PHARRELL WILLIAMS POUTS RATHER BEAUTIFULLY HERE FOR THIS MONTH'S PAPER MAGAZINE, MMMM THOSE LIPS. I'D REALLY LIKE TO HAVE MY LIPS ON HIS LIPS AND WE COULD GET ALL SUCKY SUCKY. OK, SNAP OUT OF IT. JUST THOUGHT YOU GUYS MIGHT LIKE TO STARE AT THIS PHOTOGRAPH FOR A FEW MINUTES (OR HOURS) AND FALL INTO YOUR OWN FANTASY.

MOST 'VALUABLE' PLAYER

TODAY I'M GOING TO WEAR A ONE ARMED FUR SHRUG TO A...BASKETBALL GAME. OK KIM, REALLY? OOH YES, NOT FORGETTING HER OTHER FRONT ROW GLAMOUR PROPS, HERMES BAG - CHECK AND LOUBOUTIN BOOTS - CHECK. FAUX OR NOT ANYONE (INCLUDING KHLOE HERE) WOULD LOOK KINDA DULL SITTING NEXT TO KIM IN HER FURRY ARM GLOVE. SHE PULLS IT OFF THOUGH. IT'D BE A SLAM DUNK WITH FUNK.

QUILT CLASSICS

I'VE ALWAYS HAD A THING FOR QUILTED THINGS. TO ME, IT'S GOT THAT LOOK OF LUXURY AND QUALITY. AFTER SEEING THIS JACKET ON NICKI MINAJ RECENTLY, MY LOVE FOR ALL THINGS QUILTED WAS REAFFIRMED AND I GOT MY GOOGLE ON. TURNS OUT IT'S BY DESIGNERS KTZ (SHORT FOR KOKON TO ZAI, JAPANESE FOR EAST TO WEST) A PAIR OF PARIS TO LONDON FASHION MAGIC MAKERS, WHO, FROM WHAT I'VE DISCOVERED, HAVE PRETTY UNIQUE PIECES WITH A TWIST OF STREET THAT JUST SCREAM COOL. NICKI'S BEJEWELED JACKED IS EVEN PART OF A FULL LEATHERY RANGE - SKIRT, DRESS AND BOOTIES. JUST LIKE WHEN YOU GET A QUILT COVER WITH A SHEET AND PILLOW CASE, WHAT A TREAT.

LADY LONG LEGS

NICKED THIS PIC FROM MY BESTIE ALIYA (SHE SPECIFICALLY TOLD ME I SHOULD TELL YOU HER NAME THIS TIME) WHO, WHEN HOLIDAYING IN SOUTH AFRICA, DISCOVERED THIS GRIDDED CANVAS PHOTOGRAPH OF, WELL, A HOT NAKED MAMA WHO'S LEGS QUITE LITERALLY GO ON (QUE OUTKAST MS. JACKSON) 'FOREVER, FOREVER EVER, FOREVER EVER...'

IN ANOTHER DIMENTION

I'M PARTIAL TO A BIT OF PRETTY POLISH BUT 3D NAILS - I SIMPLY FIND THEM FASCINATING TO STARE AT. FORGET TAPPING A TOUCHSCREEN OR PERHAPS PICKING YOUR NOSTRILS, THESE NAILS ARE DELECTABLE PIECES OF ART IN THEIR OWN RIGHT AND MUST BE HANDLED WITH CARE. CASSIE'S TRIED HER 'HANDS' AT THEM AND EVEN MANAGED TO PASTE ON A PARISIAN EIFFEL TOWER TRINKET. JUST LIKE YOU'VE DIPPED YOUR FINGERS IN A CANDY JAR, THIS JAPANESE BORN NAIL CRAZE WILL HAVE THEM SAYING MORE THAN 'KONNICHIWA'.

LOOKING DEVILISH IN A BLUE DRESS

RIHANNA, NOT ABLE TO MAKE IT TO HER BFF KATY PERRY'S WEDDING, MANAGED TO FIND SOME TIME FOR SUPPER WITH THE NEWLYWED AFTER THE MTV EUROPE MUSIC AWARDS ON SUNDAY NIGHT. SHE WAS SEEN WEARING A SUPER STUNNING 2011 EMILIO PUCCI ELECTRIC BLUE MINI DRESS EMBELLISHED WITH TASSELS AND SEXY OPEN BACK DETAILING - STROLLING PAST THAT YELLOW GRAFFITI WALL REALLY SET IT OFF TOO! JUST COZ I'M NICE LIKE THAT, I FOUND A COUPLE OF HIGH STREET SIMILARS COURTESY OF ASOS AND MOTEL ROCKS. MAY THEY BEGIN TO INSPIRE YOU.

I LOVE A MAN IN A LETTERMAN

WAY BACK WHEN, LETTERMAN OR VARSITY JACKETS, AS THEY'RE SOMETIMES CALLED, WERE ONLY WORN BY COLLEGE STUDENTS AND HIGH SCHOOL ATHLETES. NOW, THIS RETRO AMERICAN SPORTS JACKET IS PRETTY MUCH A STAPLE PIECE IN ANY FASHION SAVVY WARDROBE. THE HIGH STREETS ARE FLOODED WITH THEM AND CELEBRITIES MJ TO PRESENT DAY HAVE EMBRACED THEM - IF STYLED CORRECTLY (LESS AVIREX HOOD APPEAL AND MORE MOS DEF APPEAL) THIS CROSS-GENDER REVIVAL IS OUTERWEAR'S BARE ESSENTIAL.

ART OVER FOOD? THAT'S A FIRST.

FRIDAY NIGHT AFTER AN OVERWHELMING WEEK AT WORK THAT RANGED FROM TRAVELLING BETWEEN RICHMOND, KINGSTON, UXBRIDGE, WOKING AND READING I NEEDED TO GATHER MY THOUGHTS AND REFLECT WITH SOME GOOD OLD FASHIONED PRAYER AT THE MOSQUE. BUT BEFORE DOING SO, I MET MY BESTIE AT THE KENSINGTON CREPERIE WHERE SHE INDULGED IN A CREPE AND I INDULGED IN THE BANKSY-ESQUE POP ART STYLE PAINTINGS THAT HUNG IN THE ADJOINING ICE CREAM PARLOUR. THE ARTIST GOES BY THE NAME OF JASON WHITE AND AFTER MUCH RESEARCH I COULDN'T FIND A SITE.

WHAT A SMACKER

YOU'VE ALL HEARD OF VASELINE AND YOU'VE ALL HEARD OF COCOA BUTTER - PUT THEM TOGETHER AND YOU HAVE A MATCH MADE IN BEAUTY HEAVEN. VASELINE HAVE LAUNCHED A NEW LIP THERAPY TIN TO ADD TO THEIR EXISTING COLLECTION AND THIS ONE BY FAR SMELLS THE MOST DELISH (TRUST ME I'VE TRIED THE LOT). WITH IT'S DIVINE CHOCOLATY SCENT AND RETRO STYLE TIN, IT DOES THE JOB FASHIONABLY WELL. THIS BIT'S SOUNDS LIKE A NEW DANCEHALL CRAZE BUT, GO TO BOOTS, DELVE YOUR FINGER IN AND START SMEARING...

GINGER-BEST LATTE

TIS THE SEASON I WAIT ALL YEAR FOR, I REJOICE WHEN I TAKE THAT FIRST SIP AND SULK WHEN I TAKE MY LAST...THE STARBUCKS GINGERBREAD LATTE IS BACK. HALLELUJAH. I'M USUALLY LOYAL TO THE (HAS TO BE EXTRA HOT) CHAI TEA LATTE. BUT THIS STRICTLY CHRISTMAS COFFEE TAKES PRIORITY NOW. IT HAS THE FLAVOUR AND AROMA OF A FRESHLY BAKED GINGERBREAD MAN SWIRLED WITH SMOOTH ESPRESSO COFFEE, VELVETY STEAMED MILK AND A WHIRLING OF WHIPPED CREAM. THIS DRINK MAKES ME DIZZY.

LIVE BELIEVING, DREAMS ARE FOR WEAVING

THIS SONG IS A STRENGTH SONG! I'D SING IT WHEN I WAS YOUNGER WITH ALL MY HEART AND IT ALWAYS UPLIFTED ME - JUST LISTEN TO THOSE LYRICS, MAN OH MAN DIANA KNOWS WHAT SHE'S TALKING ABOUT. I REMEMBERED IT TODAY PARTICULARLY AND I JUST WANTED TO SHARE IT WITH YOU...

TRY A TURBAN

DITCH THE WOOLLY HATS THIS WINTER AND KEEP YOUR HEAD UNDER WRAPS IN A TURBAN. YEP I'M SERIOUS, THIS TREND IS ON THE RISE. YOU'D USUALLY RECOGNISE THIS ACCESSORY FOR ITS RELIGIOUS PURPOSE PARTICULARLY IN THE SIKH COMMUNITY, BUT THEY'VE BEEN AN INTERESTING CHOICE OF HEADWEAR FOR THE S/S 2011 RUNWAYS AND ON CELEBS ALIKE. SO IF YOU WANT TO MAKE A BOLD FASHION STATEMENT OR ADD A VINTAGE TOUCH TO PERK UP AN OUTFIT THEN DON'T TOTALLY 'BAN' THE TURBAN.
