#NYFW SS16-Pretty Dresses & Fishermen’s Hats

For the past few seasons, I’ve found fashion week to be a bit mundane, and repetitive, we keep having the same arguments and going round the same circles, New York is too long, London too short and typical, by the time we get to Paris its all so tediously messy, and somewhere along the line […]

The Fashion Victim

You remember in school when you were the last kid to come in on anything cool, and by the time you did, the other kids already moved on to the next cool thing, which left you forever trying to play catch up? It’s like that for me with music; not to long ago I listened, really listened to the words of […]

Brunch with Chuck

A few days ago, I bought my first pair of White converse! I’ve always wanted a pair of white converse you see, I have it in other colours; pink, wine, blue, black…but not in white and every time I see a girl wearing a pair I immediately want one. Well last week my first pair […]

The September Issue

The September Issue of any magazine is the crowning glory of its year, the defining issue, it draws in the big advertisers, big brands and inspires reader fanfare. It is important, in some ways political, topical, and the cause of many a fuss. The September Issue separates the players from the settlers; it is fashion’s new year, the new […]

Happy Ever After.

One of my best friends is getting married and its all very dramatic, everything is happening at once and it almost feels like a quiet storm is brewing, somewhere in the near future the collision will be cataclysmic and it will take no prisoners. To that end, planning a wedding is not for the faint […]

Vagabond- See in Paris; Beauté Congo 1926-2015

One thing I love about Paris is the endlessness of it- there is always something to see, do, be, go. It is a city brimming with art and inspiration so much so, one can never be bored in Paris. On a recent jaunt my sister and I were lucky enough to catch the Beauté Congo Exhibition presented by […]

Vagabond; Paris is always a good idea

One can never grow tired of Paris for it stays with you long after you leave. Time in Paris is always a good idea and time well spent, all that is beautiful and divine. Above ground, the beauty comes right at you. I love going to Paris, love taking in some part of the city […]

Vagabond; Lagos- Heart and Soul

Lagos. There is no place like Lagos. Until May of this year I hadn’t been back home for too long a time, so I’d forgotten how hectic and hot it can be. Compared to the laid-back pace of everyday life in London, Lagos is a shock to the system, a rude jolt that hits you the minute […]

Hell You Talmbout- Janelle Monae & Wondaland

Over the past few months the world has witnessed racism and disregard for black men and women in America. Police brutality, media stupidity and worse, legal justification for these atrocities. Racism, it is alive and well in America, do not be deceived. When a young boy cannot walk home without fear of his life, a […]

Dior and I

Over the past few months, I’ve had something akin to a block, creatively speaking, life got in the way of my creativity and I let some things fall by the way side. Last weekend I was bent on rectifying that; I moved my room around, this always helps navigate my brain in a way, and then […]

Of all the months of the year, September is most fulfilling. Tired old August, for whom the sun never shone, fades away along with memories of the summer that never was. September is the promise of good things to come, endings and beginnings; school starts, holidays end, work resumes. New books, new toys, new tricks, […]

Brunch with a view- Duck & Waffle

Some days brunch will be a warm brioche and coffee in bed, other days pancakes on a rainy sunday morning making a mess in the kitchen. On rare days, when the sun is shining, the peak of summer and you have pretty dresses still unworn, brunch should be in the up in the air with […]

Stationery- The Perfect Notebook

I have a thing for stationery. Correction, I am OBSESSED with stationery, and over the past month I have spent about £100 on notebooks. Forget the fact that I already have a box and half full of notebooks from Burberry to Smythsons, no matter how many notebooks I have, It’s never enough, for nothing warms my heart […]
