Spending the day with my blogger friend Luna meant in the natural scheme of things the day turned into a spontaneous photo shoot  Lobster lunch at Big Easy with margaritas ensured we were fuelled for our Chelsea strutting       I have realised over time, that my style is all about being chic with an extra edge, my Zara off shoulder top with a white contrast shirt underneath paired with thigh high boots  and my Zara chunky chain city bag tied the whole look together effortlessly. Zara flower studded chocker gave

If you’ve been following my blog, you will know that I love putting black and white outfits together. However this time I thought I will have a bit of fun with a checkered pattern. (Hence the pun in the title) I promise it wasn’t just to show off 🙂     I couldn’t help but throw on  my Topshop floral duster jacket for both practicality and warmth     This contrast asymmetric skirt from Missguided was an absolute steal paired priced at £8 paired with my Burberry Cape, gave my ensemble a

So this year, I turned 26, still 21 in my head… Anyways over the last few months I have come to the realisation who I am has certainly changed. Comparing the version of myself in my early 20s with the late 20’something Barbara there is a significant difference. I will list a few things that are certainly different. My tolerance level has drastically decreased. I no longer have the patience for toxic people, toxic situation, toxic relationships, toxic attitudes, toxic conversation. I simply put on my MJ black studded gloves on and do the moon walk away from all the

Hey everyone, sorry it has been a while and I went MIA. I have been inundated and extremely preoccupied with my job, plus sometimes it is good to take a break from something so that one can come back with a renewed mind, You might notice a few changes with the site, this is the hard-work of my amazing friend Alex who gifted me with this theme as my birthday present then further went ahead to help me install it. It is not quite where I want it to be

It’s that time of the year; the sun is out very early sometimes as early as 6am. The thin curtains in my room mean I get a full beam of sun rays directly on my face.. Who needs an alarm when you’ve got sunshine? The birds are chirping, the air is crisp and life feels good. Yes it is spring, my favourite season as it’s not too hot, it’s not too cold, and it’s simply perfect. The time has come to transition from your thick winter coat to soft wonderful

I got introduced to designer Sabah Mauladad of Bibisab luxury neckwear  by my friend Victoria. With a well read education in fashion and decades of experience working with some of the leading names in luxury fashion, it’s no surprise that she has produced what I would describe as a refreshing unique addition to any wardrobe. When Victoria contacted me that Sabah was going to be attending London Fashion Week and needed a blogger to write about her collection, I was beyond delighted and simply couldn’t pass on the offer. Her collection

In my every day to day life, I love to break the mould. If I feel a sudden desire to skip as I am walking, I skip. If there’s fantastic music playing in a bar whilst everyone is sat down being proper and formal, I would get up and dance. This doesn’t mean I am not aware of social ethics and the fact there’s a time and a place for most things, however it does mean I am unafraid to live and to feel. It’s so easy it these days

24 days to the end of 2014…Depending on when you are reading this blog post, the number of days might have changed slightly. However what’s apparent is the fact 2014 is quickly drawing to a halt. For me it’s almost the end to a chapter of what’s been the highs and lows of a phenomenal year. Today couldn’t be a more a perfect time to reflect and recap on 2014. Here are a few random facts about my year: I found my first grey hair (slowly waking up to the

Its autumn in the UK, the leaves are dropping and the air is a lot cooler. I am starting to get into hibernation mode, where I stay in, watch lots of movies and eat a lot of food. Winter isn’t my favourite time of the year as no matter how many layers I wear, I still feel the cold. Usually I would play with prints and colours in my outfits, but this time I decided to step “outofmybox” with an all black ensemble. 🙂 I have been caught in the

Sometimes I realise that things don’t always go to plan. Initially I set out to put up a blog post at least once a week. But you quickly realise, life gets busy especially in the last leg of summer when everyone is making the most of the last ray of sunshine before the dreaded cold dark winter days makes an appearance. So on Sunday morning, I grabbed my wonderful friend Alex and we seized the opportunity of what was a beautiful summer morning headed down to Blackheath village and took
