PARTY PLATFORMS

OKAY WHETHER IT'S YOUR BIRTHDAY OR NOT (HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY GIRL HAMIDA SHE FELL IN LOVE WITH THESE TODAY) THESE GOLD-SPIKED-MULTI-COLOURED-LASER-PRINT-SHOES FROM RIVER ISLAND DESERVE A CELEBRATION.

POT OF GLITTER

NAILS DID ON MY DAY OFF AND 'TEENAGE DREAM' BY OPI WAS MY COLOUR OF CHOICE. 3 COATS LATER THE SPARKLY IRIDESCENT PINK GAVE OFF A MAGICAL FAIRY DUST EFFECT AND UP AGAINST THE CHANDELIER IN THE BAR I WENT TO NEXT, IT WAS EVEN MORE SPELLBINDING.

PASSING THOUGHT

TODAY MY CARPET MADE ME FEEL AGITATED. JUST AS I LEAPT FOR THE HOOVER I THOUGHT TO MYSELF,

GLOBAL WARMING

IT COMES AS NO SURPRISE THAT THIS WEEKEND THERE'S A HEATWAVE IN LONDON. YEA, JUST AS YOU WAVED YOUR SUMMER WARDROBE A FAREWELL, WELCOME IT BACK WITH OPEN ARMS (WELL AT LEAST UNTIL MONDAY). SIZZLING STYLING COURTESY OF MY LATEST FASHION CRUSH ANNA TREVELYAN.

GIVE US THIS DAY...

OUR DAILY BREAD. I KNEW NOTHING OF 'APOLLO BROWN AND HASSAN MACKEY - HOUSE SHOES DAILY BREAD MIXTAPE' UNTIL 7AM THIS MORNING WHEN I ASKED THE STOCKROOM DUDE WHO WAS BLASTING IT WHAT I WAS HEARING...IT WAS MY EARLY MONDAY MORNING MUSICAL DISCOVERY AND WHAT MOST WOULD INSTANTLY RECOGNISE AS THAT 'REAL' HIP-HOP. TURN UP TRACK #5 FOR STARTERS.

CLEOPATRA, COMIN' ATCHA!

I SAID IT FOR THEIR A/W 2011 COLLECTION AND I'LL SAY IT AGAIN FOR THEIR S/S 2012 COLLECTION. IT'S THE TOPSHOP UNIQUE SHOW AT LONDON FASHION WEEK WHERE I'D LIKE TO HAVE TAKEN A FRONT ROW SEAT (PREFERABLY NEXT TO COWGIRL KELIS). THIS YEAR TS TOOK IT'S LEAD FROM ELIZABETH TAYLOR'S CLEOPATRA AND WAS INSPIRED BY THE GOLD AND GLAMOUR OF ANCIENT EGYPT. THE RESULT, A BOLD MIX OF HIEROGLYPH PRINTS AND LUXE SPORTSWEAR WITH A 90s URBAN HIP-HOP SPIN.

PRETTY PICTURE

POSTING THIS SNAP OF MY CUZZIE SIMPLY BECAUSE I THOUGHT IT WAS GORGEOUS. I COULD SEE IT AS THE COVER OF AN IBIZA CHILLOUT SESSIONS CD, IT DOES HAVE THAT EUPHORIC FEEL ABOUT IT.

MY 1ST NIGERIAN WEDDING

YESTERDAY EVENING I WAS BESTIE'S +1 AT A NIGERIAN WEDDING RECEPTION. BOGGLED SLIGHTLY AT WHAT TO WEAR, I RUSTLED UP A LIL THIGH HIGH NUMBER (YES I INSERTED THE SLIT MYSELF) POPPED A ROSE IN MY HAIR AND ACCESSORISED WITH A BRIGHT BLUE VINTAGE CLUTCH. IT WAS SUCH A SPECIAL EXPERIENCE. THE TRADITIONAL DRESS, MUSIC AND CUSTOMS WERE SO COLOURFUL AND YOU COULD FEEL THE JOY AND SPIRIT OF THE OCCASION ALL AROUND YOU. I THOROUGHLY ENJOYED WITNESSING A DIFFERENT CULTURE TO MY OWN CELEBRATING THEIR BIG DAY. THE ONLY DOWNSIDE...I DIDN'T CATCH THE BOUQUET.

NEWS OF MY PANTYHOSE

I LEFT THE HOUSE YESTERDAY WITH LADDERS IN MY TIGHTS. MY PAPS POINTED IT OUT AS IF I DIDN'T KNOW. DUUUH. ALONGSIDE MY DENIM SHORTS AND SNAKESKIN POLO IT WAS A 'CONSCIOUS FASHION DECISION'. HOW REBELLIOUS OF ME.

ENJOY THE SHOW

"AT ANY GIVEN MOMENT, SOMEONE SOMEWHERE COULD BE MAKING A FACE ABOUT YOU. BUT IT'S THE REVIEWS YOU GIVE YOURSELF THAT MATTER..."

FWB

SUNDAY NIGHT I WENT TO SEE FRIENDS WITH BENEFITS. THEY SAY EVERYONE NEEDS A FRIEND WITH BENEFITS AND JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE AND MILA KUNIS MADE THE IDEA MORE SO APPEALING. THE GORGEOUS BEINGS HAD SIZZLING ON-SCREEN CHEMISTRY AND WERE A JOY TO WATCH. I'D RECOMMEND YOU GO GET YOURSELF ONE...A CINEMA TICKET THAT IS.

NOVACANE

LOVE THIS BEWITCHING TRACK BY FRANK OCEAN AND APPRECIATE ALL THE REALNESS IN HIS LYRICS...

INDEED IT IS

SAW THIS STATEMENT ON A BAG AND WANTED TO SHARE IT WITH YOU ALL.

HOW DO YOU LIKE YOUR EGGS IN THE MORNING?

OPENED THE CUPBOARD TO FIND THE MOST DELIGHTFUL LOOKING EGG BOX I'VE EVER SEEN. I'M A SUCKER FOR PINK N PRETTY LABELS AND PACKAGING AND THIS ONE FROM ASDA SUPERMARKET CELEBRATES THE 15TH ANNIVERSARY FOR THE BREAST CANCER CARE CAMPAIGN, NOW THAT'S GOTTA BE SUNNY SIDE UP.

PORTUGAL IN PICTURES

I RETURN RELAXED AND A FEW SHADES DARKER THAN WHEN I LEFT. PRAIA DA LUZ IN THE ALGARVE WAS JAW DROPPINGLY BEAUTIFUL. THE INTENSE HEAT GOT TO MY BONES AND I FELT FREE. THE VIEWS AND LUSH LANDSCAPE WERE POSTCARD PERFECT. THE FOOD OOZED FRESHNESS, FRUIT LIKE IT FALLEN RIGHT OFF THE TREE AND ONTO MY PLATE. THE VILLA AND THE ART THAT IT HELD, INVITING AND HEARTFELT. A TRIP FOR MY MIND BODY AND SOUL!
