Sitting at my office desk, a mail notification popped up on my screen, I had been sent a link for a Eurostar deal for a £29 one way ticket. It was a no-brainer as to which destination I was going to book, seeing as I had only recently travelled to Paris. There was only one advice bestowed unto me by  friends, and it was a day in Bruges was an absolute must! Bags lightly packed, passport and tickets safely tucked away, I was ready to explore.

Be More…See More (Italy)

The New Year is fast running ahead of itself with the second month of the year already upon us. One thing for certain is that setting resolutions is a pivotal part of how we start the year. In 2016, my resolution was simple and somewhat realistic – to be more and to see more… A friend asked during a conversation what I was going to be more of? my playful response was “to be more fabulous!” 1.To be more patient (a real test of my level of patience,  is when I am

70’s Belle

Celebrities like Victoria Beckham, Sofia Vergara and Nicole Richie just to name a few of my style icons have further fuelled my lust for flared jeans. For the longest time, I knew I wanted a pair however in true Barbara fashion, just getting a dark wash flared denim wasn’t going to cut the mustard it had to be a different.   I couldn’t believe my fashion luck when I saw this ripped 70’s inspired flared ripped denim trousers on Zara in the sale section at a price of £6.00. I

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

Let’s see a show of hands if you have a dress that was bought for a specific occasion and since you wore it on that special day it has been hidden in the dark abyss also known as back of the wardrobe/closet. I mentioned in last week’s post (click here to read it) I meticulously plan my birthday to a tee with what to wear being of the optimum importance. My green and olive tulle dress was one of the 2 outfits  I bought for my 24th birthday celebration to afternoon

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

I was super excited when I bought this dungarees from Pretty Little Things online website. However, what I was unsure about was how a pair of dungarees would look on me as the last time I saw myself in one, when mother bought me a denim style pair at the age of 12. I proceeded cautiously with held breath as I keyed in my debit card details… This was either going to be a moment of fashion genius or an epic fashion fail     Am sure we all too familiar with

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

I write this blog post with a lot of happiness in my heart. There are times when you try so hard and it takes a long time to see the result of that hard work. I can’t emphasise how much there is the right time for things to happen. Unfortunately I can’t share in detail what brings me this sort of happiness however I want to encourage anyone reading, who is putting in a lot of hard work right now and not seeing the result to hang in there. It

I went shopping with an old friend who happened to be in town because she had a flight into London. Working as an air hostess certainly has its pecks. Seeing as we had not seen each-other in a long time, the plan was to have brunch and go shopping (my favourite sport). We made our way down to Bond Street the loud chime of the clock told me Selfridges was open…Our day could begin, I was keen to show her a part of Selfridges most people don’t know exists. We
