I am a huge advocate of African Fashion, I believe Africa is the new frontier for fashion and there are a lot of great talents in Africa. Which is why I was excited to attend the Africa Fashion Week London event. The event promotes and cultivates African and African-inspired design talent. read more

I love No Bake Energy Balls, they are super easy to make and grab out of the fridge, they travel great and they taste like a treat. What I love the most about them is that you can mix it however you like to suit your taste, but in general, they are made from just a few simple ingredients that you always have on hand. I have been trying a lot of recipes with oats recently because they are high in fibre and keep you fuller for longer and this recipe for healthy oat energy balls is a winner. All the ingredients were mixed together in just a few minutes, and as someone with a sweet tooth, they are a great, healthy snack. read more

Returning to where it all started, I was doing an impromptu shoot with my sister at the location where I shot my first blog post and we were joking about all the bad content we put out when I first began. This conversation got me thinking about all the blogger mistakes I have made and I’m sure many bloggers have made as well. So I decided to put together a list of the 5 biggest mistakes I’ve made as a blogger & how you can avoid them.
What are sisters for if you can’t raid their wardrobes from time to time?
I just turned 22 and it definitely snuck up on me. You never realise how quickly life is moving until your birthday comes around. I’ve lost friends, gained friends, fallen in love and made mistakes, both big and small. For the first time in a long time, I am feeling optimistic about getting older and I am finally embracing all the highs and lows that come with being an adult. I usually don’t look forward to my birthday because my birthday is usually a sad reminder that I am not where I thought I would be at certain points in my life. My biggest fear in life is not achieving everything I want to achieve. However, this year I have decided to embrace my new age and acknowledge the fact that everyone else is still figuring it out.
Here are my 22 lessons in 22 Years:
The No. 21 brand is one that I have been eyeing up for a very long time. The designer Alessandro Dell’Acqua combines elements of tailoring with a feminine, Italian sensibility. The No.21 brand is well known for its unique details such as the signature bow tie, embellishments and cool prints. The silhouettes are quite reserved and sophisticated and that is what drew me to the brand. The knotted satin sandals have become a favourite for me this season and so I wanted to do a review on my new favourite shoes.

Internships are a funny one, most internships are unpaid and interns are usually overworked. However, they are also a great opportunity for you to ‘learn’ and also try out different roles for short periods of time. I have heard so many horror stories about internships and how people have been taken advantage of for no pay or very little pay. There are so many issues with fashion internships, but, taking on a few internships early in your career is a great way to gain experience as well as figure out what your interests are.
PROS: Great on your CV | Confidence boost and great for making contacts | Possible paid role at the end if you’re good | Great Learning experience | Little commitment – can always leave if unhappy.
CONS: Full-time job commitments & hours without the pay | Waste of time if the role is not what you expected. read more
