Maxing it out in black and white

Hey peeps,

I have a question, is it me but don't you think the 'down' side to having a bank holiday is that you try to cram loads in that by the time you go back to work you are sooo tired, only to have to then fit 5 days work into 4 days ( well 3 days in my case as I also took off Tuesday).

I stepped out in this simple black and white ensemble today. If this outfit could talk it would tell you that I got ready in the fastest time ever! I'm talking 20 mins. My alarm didn't go off, so when it came to choosing what to wear I went for the first thing I saw when I opened one of my  wardrobes ( which was this skirt). 

The boots, well I tripped over them so that was obviously their way of begging me to wear them lol! I hate to be rude to any style of shoe, especially when they are as fierce as these. I added a pop of colour to my outfit- a purple lip ( and my pink, dip dye hair).

Cheers to the frickin weekend!! Xx

Ps: just in case you were wondering, I made it into work on time. :)

Be Box Photo shoot

After a few mad weeks of running around like a crazy woman, including a weekend away in Nice, social events and working on a really big project at work, I am back to my baby: my blog. Damn I have missed you! lol.

So first up, I have been meaning to put this up on the blog for agesssssss. A few months ago I worked (as a stylist) on a fantastic shoot for new beauty brand; Be Box.

Be box is a beauty box for women of colour, taking inspiration from the likes of glossy box, each month subscribers will receive a box full of 4-5 lush samples. These products will cater for various black skin tones and hair types. Be box (the box and the site) is due to launch in a few weeks but for now you can sign up to the newsletter at  for all the latest in fashion, celebrity news and new beauty products. I have and I'm hooked!!

The shoot was SOOOOOOOOOOOOO much fun!  I still remember rocking up to the shoot and hearing the soulful sounds of the fab Solange Knowles blaring out, I realised straight away that this was going to be one cool-ass shoot.

Below are some of the snaps from the shoot (courtesy BeBox). I styled all the models using products from my shop House of Shoena.

Britain's next top model finalist-Mulan

Look at that 'fro
