International Women's Day (8th March) has been celebrated since the early 1900"s a time of great expansion. Thousands of events are held around the world to inspire women and celebrate achievements. YouTube created the #DearMe campaign ahead of IWD as a way for women to write letters and make videos giving advice to their teenage selves. See what I would've written my younger self here.



How gorgeous is that Frida Kahlo cushion? It's from Ebay! I find the most amazing things on there. So...I'm trying to get my place a bit more organised and these are two items that are on my wishlist. As you know I love black and white decor with a hint of chrome or colour. I love this silver 5 drawer chest it's exactly the style I'm looking for but I'm sure I can find it for much less. I have also found some other alternatives. I no longer like the way my polishes are  stored in the plastic containers I have. The glass  cabinet I'm thinking of using to store some of my favourite pieces.

I love changing up decor every now and again and love this mish mash of prints and colours. I like when decor is able to come together without matching. I guess its that time of the year everybody's getting ready to spring clean and spruce things up. Hope you all have a great weekend, I've heard the weather's going to be great! :-)



How cute is my nephew for World Book Day? His costume was spontaneously designed by his auntie Izzy under her quick thinking and improvisation. Well done auntie Izzy! :-) I can't wait to show this picture and many others to my nephew when he's older. :-) I don't think I ever celebrated World Book Day not that I can remember...but I did do things like sponsored silence and victorians day etc. Did any of you celebrate World Book Day what did your kids / friends / family members dress up as? 


Can you believe it's March already? The 1st quarter of the year will soon be a distant memory...yikes! The beginning of the year always goes super quick for me. Did any of you make New Years resolutions? How's that going? Did you stick with it? I for one am excited as my birthday is next month...the big 30! I don't think I'll be doing anything spectacular I'm just happy to have made it to thirty. ( It's a big deal for me)

Let's not be deceived by this lovely weather we're having in London currently, it's still freezing! As I'm woken by the beaming sun in the morning it's easy for me to be deceived that it's warm outside but I'm still rocking Eskimo George (my winter coat). I love that we're approaching spring it's such a cheerful time. :-) I did too much walking yesterday and promised myself I would rest today as I knew the consequences of not letting myself heal properly. :-( I'm just getting really frustrated now as I want to vlog. Lol

A few days ago I dyed my roots shiny black - in the words of Joey from Friends, I was becoming too "wisdomous" haha...I was starting to sport the look of Rogue from X-Men. No Bueno!
It's the first time I tried this product and I absolutely loved it I will share my review in another post. I forgot how amazing jet black hair looks on me, I'm really happy my ends didn't dye using a method I use when I texlax. Btw if any of you are on Hairlista add me for my updates I've started documenting my journey properly again. :-) I'm really trying to be more organized I've even got a blog book now where I write all my ideas etc. Hope you're all having a great week so far. :-)
