Body Image x Confidence | Video

Leave a Comment
I'm back again with another video!

Today it's a bit of a long one where I'm discussing the issue of body image and how to acquire confidence. Now, this video is a bit rambly and I basically could have said everything I had wanted to say in 10 minutes, but I'm still getting used to the whole video malarky so apologies!

Anywhoo, I hope you guys like this video and are able to connect with it on some level; among all the rambling, there's a message in there somewhere!

STYLE | Just Playin' Around

Although I do love a good jump and playsuit every now and again, I don't seem to have a lot in my collection, largely due to the excessive amount of 'gatherage' of material that I seem to get around the crotch area which is pretty annoying! This summer however, I am determined to at least wear a few as they are so comfortable to slouch about in. I picked up this play-suit from ASOS Curve a couple of months ago which has unfortunately just gone out of stock as of yesterday (poo!) and teamed it with my New Look chunky heels, Primark backback and New Look jacket. As you can see when it comes to my style posts, I tend to wear loads of items over and over again; I mean if you're going to pay money, why not get as much usage out of them as possible, right?

Making it drizzle with Legal & General!

Leave a Comment
I don't know about you guys but when it comes to board games, I can be exceptionally competitive. My game of choice? The one and only Monopoly. Up until lately (ahem...), I had never lost a game due to my savvy and somewhat wise investment decisions *straightens moustache*, so when I found out that Joe's Blogs and Legal & General were setting up a games and pizza night at their offices, I knew I had to be all in!



Once we arrived, we quickly got ourselves in groups of 6-8 and with the pizza and prosecco on tap, the games began.


Because I was in such a large group, I tried to tuck my competitiveness in a little but I'm pretty sure you could still see a bit! We had some ruthless people in our group who clung onto their properties for dear life which was hilarious, but it really does bring home how much of a Lion's Den investing can be; having to be shrewd to a degree and having a keen eye on the current climate before making your move.


Although I'm sad to report that I didn't win, I had such a great time playing along and meeting other bloggers! It was amazing to catch up with Hollie and Katie again, as well as the guys over at Joe's Bloggers; thank you so for such a fun night and to catch up with more stories and photos from the evening, check out #LandGGamesNight on Twitter!

STYLE | Denim on Denim

There's something about this whole look that screams "TOURIST!" to me, but I love it. I have completely fallen in love with these Simply Be  Lucy Jeans*; they are honestly the most comfortable pair of jeans I own! I love that they are high waisted and are tight around the calves, just what I like.

Fashion Fair Beauty Highlighter - Golden Lights

4 comments
Fashion Fair has always been a staple in my household for as long as I can remember. Back in the early 90s when hardly any brands catered for black women, Fashion Fair cosmetics was the go-to brand for my Mother and the other female members of my family.

To be completely honest, Fashion Fair had never been on my radar when it came to shopping for the latest makeup finds; the packaging and branding of the products I felt appealed more to consumers within my Mother's demographic than mine, however It seems that over the years they have had a bit of a rebranding (specifically the font of the brand name) and have changed some of their formulas around.

Today we're talking about the Fashion Fair Beauty Highlighter in Golden Lights* which I was kindly sent by the Fashion Fair team while on a quest to find dark skin-friendly highlighters. In terms of the packaging, aesthetically there isn't much to be said; the brand have kept the same copper/brown colour theme they have always had, but have changed the font as I stated above, which I actually quite like! It's a lot more modern than the serif that used to be in place. In my opinion, serif font has NO place on makeup packaging, but that's just me!

The actual powder is described as 'a multi purpose shimmer powder which adds a gentle glow'.
The powder is a light copper, almost rose gold in colour and is very finely milled; we love a good finely milled powder over here so the texture alone gets a big thumbs up from me. The texture is also pretty soft, almost cream-like and applies/blends effortlessly into the skin, which great pigmentation. I've found that light hands are needed upon application, as it's very easy to be transformed into 'disco ball circa 1976' and nobody wants that LOL. 

So far I've only really used it along the top of my "cheekbones", so I can't comment on the multi-usage yet, however you can bet that I'll be having fun trying it out this Summer. I've been on such a highlighter frenzy since discovering that I could ACTUALLY wear them and not look like Krusty the Clown and I'd definitely say that the Golden Lights highlighter is up there with one of my favourites already. Price point wise, I think the product is worth the £16 as you get more bang for your buck; because it's so pigmented, only a little is needed. This is a shade that I feel would suit most, if not all skin tones and is very dark-skinned friendly! Why don't you give it a go?

Available from £16.00 at Debenhams.

Have you tried this highlighter?
