The Monochrome Effect.

So these pictures were taken at the stroke of midnight -well ok, around 10 past- on Christmas day. You see, my mamma's birthday is Christmas Eve and every year we go out to a resturant to celebrate, and usually (it is a surprise if we are not) we are the last to leave. *cue a loud 'Merry Christmas' celebration with the staff* haha. 

I went for the black and white look and a real high bun that had my head toppling over! I received so many compliments from my family and mum's friends-I got the sophisticated stylish look down to a T they said :D I must say the lipstick finished it off!
The clutch was a great steal that I found at at car boot sale in Kingston-it only cost me £1.50!! I need to use it more often! Haha!
My necklace was brought in a Chinese subway market, near the university I was studying at last year (can JUST get away with saying last year haha) in Shanghai. It was love at first sight as its intricate detail was admirable (I wore it before in this old post) and I knew it had to be mine- that was a steal too! As I managed to haggle it down to £4!

Shirt and Skirt- Pirmark (!)
Necklace worn as collar- from a Chinese subway
Clutch-Car Boot sale (£1.50)
We went to a Vietnamese restaurant in Hoxton called 'Anh Dao' and we had a great time. (That area is know as Pho mile- so there are lots of Vietnamese restaurant to choose from, my mum went to this one before and loved it). Ordering lots and lots of starters that made us full, but somehow we had space for the mains. I got the classic Pho- and it was delicious. And then the night ended with the staff playing an Vietnamese version of 'Happy Birthday' that was funny as it went on for a while- the manger even said to us don't blow out the candles yet, the song hasn't finished. All in all, a wonderful night was had by all, especially my mother. May God continue to bless her. 

With the beautiful birthday girl!
So I hope you lovelies had a wonderful Christmas- I spent it with family stuffing my face, watching television whilst being comfy in a Spiderman onsie!! :D

HAPPY NEW YEAR GUYS! Let's make it a great one!

Until next time, stay blessed.

This London girl is back in town!!

I'm back! And it feels great! Haha! I've miss blogging, so it's great to be back on the fashion blogging scene! ... Enjoy!

I've been back in the U.K for a few weeks now (I was in Rwanda for 10 weeks), and I have been 'appreciating the chill', whilst going out now and then. 
These pictures were taken at the Hillsong Carols concert in Wembley Arena that took place last week. I went with my friend Maria-it was so nice seeing her after so long, and bless her for agreeing to take pictures for me. You see, I would post more, but sometimes I just don't have someone willing to take shots for me *cue sad music*, or I am simply alone, but come the new year, I will do my utmost to blog as often as I can for you guys! 
Bomber jacket- Monsoon.
Leotard- Primark.
Skirt- F21.
Shoes- Primark.
Rucsack- Primark.
Neckalce- F21.
Earrings- Craft store in Rwanda.
Lipstick-Mac, Ruby Woo (of course).
I brought these earrings in Rwanda and I love them- not because they are purple but because of the workmanship that went into making them- and they were a bargain!

Regarding the outfit, I kept it simple with #allblackeverything. But I didn't want it completely that way- I love my color. Especially purple. So I rocked my new bomber jacket from Monsoon. It was love at first sight. It was my welcome back gift from the mamma. Thanks! :D It is so comfy and warm -it's padded, which is definitely needed in this current weather. I love the pattern too- it's busy which I like, all the colors compliment each other and I love the finish it gives off. I decided to take my rucksack out for a ride too. I brought it for my travels and I love it-it's simply slick and stylish!

I had such a wonderful, blessed time at the concert. I always go to Hillsong Carols if I'm in the country, wouldn't miss it for the world! Such a great way to celebrate the birth of our Lord- I especially loved the   'Silent Night' take on Beyoncé's 'Crazy in Love'. Haha- got me dancing!

Until next time, stay blessed.
