Happy New Year

Heels - £35 Missguided (here)
Spike Bracelet - £6 Diamond Petal (here)

This post is a little different to my normal post's as I only usually post what I actually wore out, I never just get dressed up to shoot pictures as I think fashion blogs should be about real wearable fashion.  

Tonight will be the first time since I was 18 not to go to a NYE rave or big party, I'm actually going to a small onsie party!  I found the concept of a onsie party a bit different, knowing that there will be a bunch of grown guys walking around in onsies will be a funny sight, so hey why not!

So this post is inspired as a 'would be' NYE outfit.  The sparkles and glitter is so new years eve.  I always go all out with my NYE outfits, it should be all about sparkles, bright colours and fun.  I actually bought this dress about two years ago, it was dirt cheap probably about £5, the sparkles drew me in!  I don't know why it's been sitting in my wardrobe all this time, I cant wait to actually wear it out now.

I hope you guys like my outfit, I'm sure all your outfits will be amazing!! I would like to wish you all a Happy New Year and hope you have a wonderful time whatever you do tonight.  See you in 2013.

Dress - Primark
Heels - Peacocks
Bag - £6 Priamrk
Body chain - £10 Aldo (in store) 

Every girl has there 'LDB' that they turn to when they have nothing to wear or want to keep it simple, this is mine.  I have actually had this dress for about 4 years and at only £13 it works wonders! it clinches everything in, only if the pictures were clearer the material is actually similar to a Herve Leger dress.

I wore this outfit on a night out on Saturday, I kept it simple with black and gold,  I haven't worn my body chain since Morocco with casual outfits, so I  wanted to try it with a dressy look. I hope you like it.

I wore this outfit on Sunday, I actually didn't wear it for long as I was on my way to a family photo shoot.  I didn't completely change out of the outfit, I wore the dress, I just took off the tights and jacket and changed into heels (you can see the heels in this post).  You might also recognise this dress  from the boat party post (here),  as you can see from this post I paired the dress with pieces that gave it a more day look.

The family photo shoot was amazing, about 15 of us came, yes my family is massive! it was such a great family day out.  I paid only £20 from a Groupon deal that would of normally cost £300 for such a big family!

I can't believe I haven't blogged for a week, were the heck did time go seriously!  I did however go to the gym more than usual last week (pat on the back) which kind of took over.

I wore this outfit to yet another surprise party I threw, I now think of myself as the surprise party guru, future career maybe??!  This time it was for my little brothers 23rd birthday in a Ugandan restaurant.  

I having been itching to wear this dress since I bought it back in January, its definitely a statement dress with the bright yellow colour and bold black slashes.  It fits like a treat, the only thing I probably will do is make it slightly shorter, maybe knee length before I wear it again.

Happy Monday everyone! I hope your week has got off to a good start :-)  This is what I wore on Friday to see the last installment of Twilight.  It is definitely a must see, I cant believe its finally over, oh how time flies.

I'm loving this over sized cardy from Missguided, its so comfy.  My new boots are going to be stuck to my feet for a while they are just so comfortable and give me a lot of height....perfect combination.

Look Magazine Feature

Look who we have here.. little old me in Look magazine! (no pun intended hehe) When I first started this blog almost a year ago I never would of thought to see my face in a magazine.  When I found out I wanted to scream the office down with all the excitement.  It's safe to say I couldn't wait to tell my friends and family.  I had such a fat grin on my face when I went to buy the magazine :-)

The feature was on how to wear Checkered items, you can see my post on it here.

Look what we have here... some outside shots! It felt really weird taking pictures outside again, I wish I could take them more often but when I get home its too dark.  This is what I wore yesterday during the day when I was out and about.  There is nothing I love more then throwing on a pair of jeans and  t shirt,  working in an office were you cant dress like this makes me miss it even more!

It was me and my boyfriends 8th, yes 8th anniversary yesterday, gosh time flies.  So in the evening I changed into something a bit more dressy and we headed for dinner at a Mexican restuarant and finally watched Skyfall which is amazing by the way!  Did you guys have a good weekend? x


Dress - £15 H&M

Heels - £12 Primark

Sorry I have been a bit MIA lately,I have had a lot going on with work, but what has mostly been keeping me busy was; until the weekend gone, planning a surprise party for my cousin.  I enjoy planning parties and even planned a surprise party for my mums 40th a couple years ago.  I planned a small dinner for 25 in a private room in Turkish restaurant   It was perfect, when the birthday girl walked in she was so shocked that she walked back out hehe best reaction ever!

This is what I wore to the dinner.  This H&M dressing is amazing, I fell in love the minute I saw it.  Maybe I'm a little too in love with it, but I could see it on the red carpet!  I added a neon bag and matching earrings also from H&M. I have a H&M near my work place so always buy in store, I just had a look on their site to provide links for each item but they don't have them online. I find this a lot on the H&M site which is quite frustrating  but all items are in store now.

I have a few ideas of also wearing this dress a bit more casual with converses and litas, its definitely going to be one of my winter staples.

White Party

This post is so late! I have been coming home at 10 pm every day, hence no outfit post this week.  These pictures were taken at a faboulous white boat party I went to on the Thames for a friends birthday on Saturday.  I never realised untill this party that I only own one white dress!!  The party was amazing and being on a boat just added a glamourous element to it.  We kept joking to everyone that we were going to P diddys boat party haha

I hope you like what I wore.  I included some iPhone pictures at the bottom just so you can see how lovely it was on the boat and of course me getting my pose on.  I also love the picture of my cousin in her long white dress, doesn't she look like shes on a catwalk!

Hello Shorter hair! so yeah my extensions lasted only a week and a half! As much as I loved them they always start feeling heavy and I always miss my own hair, it was fun while it lasted.  I took the plunge and dip dyed my own hair.  I love it, but as I thought it has taken a toll on my ends and their super dry at the moment,  Hopefully a few conditioning sessions will do the job.

I wore this yesterday to run a few errands, it was raining like mad yesterday, as you can see my umbrella has made a little appearance in my bag, probably not the last one either...sigh.

I love this crop top, and since I wore it in May in this post here, I have been wanting to wear it again.  When I bought this peplum skirt the idea for this outfit came straight away, all I needed was somewhere to go!

I wore this on Saturday to celebrate Uganda's 50th Independence, I may not have mentioned before but I'm half Ugandan.

Hey guys, hope your all well! As you may have noticed I have added some extensions to my hair.  I have been wanting to dip dye my ends, but there dry as it is and didn't want to risk damaging them.  When I decided to get extensions I thought why not change it up even more and go really long! when my hair is out it covers my whole back.  

This is what I wore to work today, my most relaxed look at work.  I didn't sleep at home last night, which was very last minute. with no fresh clothes to wear to work, I took the opportunity to raid through my cousins wardrobe and borrowed her lovely checkered top.

Allure Eyebrow Embroidery

Finally getting down to what everyone have been asking me - my eyebrows. I like to think i'm pretty good at shaping and drawing brows. I'm not born with perfect, full brows so i've have been shaping and drawing my brows myself ever since i started applying makeup? It's all about practice and knowing exactly what looks good on you. So last month, Allure Beauty, eyebrow embroidery specialists, sent me an email and invited me down for an eyebrow embroidery session. I hesitated, of course, since i really like drawing my own brows but the thought of having fuller brows everyday the moment i wake up is what made me decided to just go for it.


Allure Beauty's latest outlet at City Square Mall marks the 3rd outlet to date. It is bigger, better with a very luxurious and elegant feel. It has a spa like ambience in a saloon setting.


This is my brows when it's not drawn. I'm not 'hairless' there but it isn't defined and full enough for me!


So first, they applied the numbing cream around and on my brows and left it for 30 mins....

I was then taught about how brows should be aligned on our face. Allure uses The Golden Ratio to bring balance and proportion to the face which harmonizes the rest of the features together. I knew about this method of determining my brow arch and all and it was the same method i used to shape my brows too so i was really happy and relieved to know that i have doing it the right way all these while hahaha

IMG_8449 IMG_8568

My therapist then trim and draw my brows according to The Golden Ratio and to my satisfaction before proceeding to the treatment room for embroidery. I like how my brows always look but i also want a versatile shape that i can lightly draw over on days i feel like changing up the look so i requested for a similar brow shape to the one i always draw on myself, which thankfully, the therapist also felt that i suit that shape too.

In the treatment room getting ready for my brows to be embroidered! I love how the brows look like here. Gonna make them semi-permanent! Eyebrow embroidery lasts for about 2 years depending on individual.

Right after treatment!

Above 3 photos are taken with my naked brows (and face). Now i do not have to draw my brows on my off-work days anymore! I still do have to draw them during photoshoots because i require them to be slightly darker because of harsh lights and/or during times when i want my brows to be thicker or have a higher arch! Love how versatile it is!

Pain wise, i would say it's about 1/10? Definitely not like tattoo-ing. It just feels like somebody scratching your brows really hard. Oh and your brows are gonna be really dark and unnatural for about a week before it fades off into a lighter, natural shade! Honestly speaking, it was a tough week for me. I couldn't stand how fierce i looked but thank god time flies!

This is how my brows looked like before embroidery, when i still do draw my brows. Not much difference right? :D So for those who have been asking me about my brows... I can't help you when i don't know you. I can't shape or draw them for you. You can only either keep practicing like how i always tell you guys to (don't give up!) or you can give this a try!

And just a tip for those of you who are interested in doing eyebrow embroidery, i know a lot of people are into the korean brows (think thick and straight) right? Do NOT ever ask your therapist to create that shape for you. Neither do you get them to embroidery a really sultry looking, high arch brow because i promise you're gonna regret. Go for something that is more versatile, one that you will look good leaving it naked as it is and also be able to draw on it to make the arch higher or make it thicker and straighter any time you want. :)

I still like drawing my brows though even after getting it embroidered. Sometimes i think i'm obsessed with brows. I secretly takes pride in my own brows LOL. I also do have to tidy them up (pluck and trim) every now and then but it's way easier to do it now because the shape of the brow is already there!

Prices for eyebrow embroidery (treatments ranges from basic embroidery to angelic embroidery) at Allure Beauty ranges from S$198 to S$2800.

I did the Allure Signature Embroidery and it ranges from S$1380 to S$1880 depending on the therapist chosen. Right now Allure is offering you guys S$100 OFF Allure Beauty Signature Eyebrow Embroidery. Offer only applicable to senior therapists and prices are before GST. Promotion ends 31 Dec 2013.
