Smile...I know you don't want to.


The cold weather can be a little disheartening when deciding what to wear. There's that dress or skirt you brought in the sales, that you have been dying to find any poor excuse to wear, don't worry you still can.

My Cuban Experience..

My time in Cuba...

Nothing could have mentally neither physically prepared me for the indescribable experience that I would encounter visiting the forgotten island of Cuba. A place overloaded with culture, every corner I turned presented a picture perfect opportunity, an amateur photographer I might be but none of that matters when your in Cuba.  After a nine hour flight, I was desperate to see the island and boy was I not at all disappointed!

We arrived in Varadero, Matanzas for the first part of a trip. Renowned for its modern shopping centres, authentic markets and the 12 mile beach resort. If you visit Varadero (which I INISIT you do) stay at Quatro Palma ( Starfish resort) you have the beach on your doorstep, complete with water sports and 24 hours bars. 
I spent most my time at the beach because well... look at it, need I explain?

Varadero Beach

Swimsuit: Marks and spencers

The melanin power is apparent from the moment you get off the plane, something I definitely wasn't used to.

Bikini: Missguided

I love a good beat but with the heat levels that high (38 degrees), my (anastasia beverly hills) gleam highlighter and an ombre lip was my go to look. But in the evening, that was a different story. 

The Quatro Palma hotel hosts a number of restaurants, one being a traditional Italian and although the views and food were spectacular, the mosquito overload was not. 

The Sights to see

There is so much too see and so much to discover.

Travelling with adults definitely has its advantages, they organised the excursions and mini trips (so happy they did).

 We visited the renowned cities in Cuba including Cienfuegos & Santci, Santa Clara (The resting place of Che Guevara) along with Trinidad and the Valley De Los Ingenios. 

One word: Life-changing.

Santa Clara: the city dedicated to the countries hero Che Guevara

I didn't know much about Guevara, until I visited Santa Clara. I never anticipated the overwhelming feeling that overcame me when visiting his memorial. I realised that Che was not just a Cuban hero but a hero to many Africans, including my Dad.

Too cute not to shoot.

Frills and Leather Combos 

This season have fun with your outfits adding colour and texture when you can...

Like kensington, keep it understated and fresh with pastel blues. 

Leather Trousers: Zara 

 Im definitely having fun this winter, playing around with shapes and textures.

Say no to bad hair days this winter, get the perfect hat to keep you warm and looking cute.


Styling London begins...

Please, please, please. Don't ever ask me to describe my style because I really have no clue how to describe it! 

Hair By Lake Sanu

My mood changes so often that I can't help but reflect that in my clothes and my wigs!

T-shirt: Primark

Chocker: ASOS  

For now I will say its at times minimal but spontaneous and always with a classy finish.

Shoes: DrMartens Chelsea Boot

Chocker: SoDuhGirls 

Jeans: ASOS

See? That makes no sense, but oh well. I hope by you following me you will figure out that I just wear what I feel. 
But I have to accept that for now Net-a-porter won't be hearing from me.

I did have to remind myself that even with all the money in the world, and all the designer connections you may have...you can still make an Alexander Mqueen dress look like a cheap knock off (as seen WAY TOO MUCH on Instagram).

Somehow it works for them and thats okay...its my job to make my style and lifestyle work for me which is exactly what I will do on this blog.
