OOTD| GREAT PLAINS JEANS


TOP-H&M
FUR GILET-PRIMARK
NECKLACE-TOPSHOP


I have a soft spot for leopard print, I'm not sure why but I am convinced that this elegant creature is my spirit animal, might explain the abundance of leopard print clothing I have in my collection! So, it is no surprise that when I was asked to choose an item from great plains, I immediately gravitated to these jeans. Now, there are two reasons why I love these jeans; there leopard print, but they are a washed out colour making them versatile and easy to style. The second reason I adore these jeans, is because they are SOFT! I am a denim snob, and will refuse to wear stiff and thick jeans. I opted for a size up than I usually go for, only because I have a huge derrière (I'd like to thank my Ghanaian blood for that). The fit was ok, but a a tiny bit loose on the waist and I had to roll the ends up, but this is only the result of me sizing up and being 5'5. 

All in all, I had fun styling the jeans, what do you think?

Many of you may remember the 28th October for the crazy storm that happened. I remember it for another reason, the Next blogger workshop(#nbnworkshop). Yes, the poor weather was not going to stop me from this event.. so I glammed up, braved the weather and headed over to The Hoxton Hotel for an exciting yet informative day!

As soon as I stepped into the hotel, I was in awe of the venue. It was totally different from any other event I had been to and resembled a swanky flat, which I have now decided will be my dream home! I was greated by bloggers Renee,Vanessa and Akey, as well as members of the Next team and Jam agency superstar Gemma, who was so cool in person! Gemma made me feel comfortable, but most importantly showed me to the breakfast spread. It was like she knew I had a weakness for breakfast pastries! Much love,girl!!

We were quickly divided into groups, to enjoy three workshops that focused on topics that are important for bloggers . These were Branding& Advertising,Photography & Film and SEO & Web design.

The Branding and Advertising workshop was hosted by Abimarvel, creator of the apartment and Emily from Fashion Foie Gras. This was one of my favourite workshop, maybe because I studied marketing at Uni and love everything to do with this subject. Anywho, this workshop focused on knowing your brand and effectively promoting yourself. It taught me to take risks, not to be scared and most importantly be polite to everyone, as you never know what will happen when you meet the right people! I really connected with this workshop as I really want to be a better blogger and use my skills to get my dream job as a social media executive. Not to mention I would like to take  the FBL network and #fblchat to the next stage! So this talk was very inspiring.

Next was the Photography and Film workshop hosted by Vivianna from Vivianna does make up and Lily from Lily Pebbles.  This was an exciting and informative workshop about photography basics, as well as tips about venturing into the world of Youtube.I have become a photography enthusiast as of late, and have recently ventured into Youtube.So this was very helpful!!

The final workshop  was SEO and Web design.Which was hosted by digital marketing aficionado,  Diego Puglisi from Green light digital and Faye from fashionbeautetc  I found that this was the most eye opening, I have a rough idea of the basis SEO but there is a lot more to it than I thought. The web design section was great, as we got tips on how to improve our design of our blogs.

As well as the workshops, Next and Jam provided a fun snapchat bingo competition,lush food,amazing goody bag and a really nice cocktail session after! All in all I had a great time and learnt loads. Thanks Next!

SHOES-NEW LOOK

Today is my 23rd Birthday and I decided to give you all a very special post about my Halloween shenanigans. It is very rare that you'll see me dressed up. I tend to find the whole thing a bit tedious tbh, I blame the lack of fancy dress parties in my childhood for my lack of enthusiasm. However, there is one time of year that I'll make excuses for, and that is Halloween! Can you believe I have only ever been to 2 Halloween parties! Now this is not because I was unpopular growing up, far from it! Growing up in  a Ghanaian household I wasn't really allowed to celebrate Halloween ..sad times. Now as an adult, I let my inner child take full advantage of this spooky season.

This year me and one of my besties, Humayra, were invited to a Halloween Housewarming, at our other best friends flat. Which was lush by the way! Anyway, we had a sick night. I would've taken pictures of the actual party but I was busy having soo much fun, so here is a pic of me and Humayra before the event! 

What do you think, do we look spookily gorgeous?(it is a new word I invented).
