It's October, and this month has been made Breast Cancer awareness month. It is also black history month here in the UK even though it's barely celebrated, and not really made aware to others. I'm going to stop here before I get too deep into that topic as that's not what today's post is about. Today I'm joining other bloggers in the blogging community to raise awareness about breast cancer.
For this post I've worn a pink themed outfit, of course I've also put the weather and season into consideration; therefore bright neon pink is out of the question. Summer is over! And I'm not really a bright neon pink kinda gal. So I decided to make this post my own, by changing the colours up a bit. For this outfit I've gone with a dusty pink and burgundy.
Let's face it although it's mention practically everywhere, not a lot of people know much about breast cancer, in fact some people haven't got the slightest clue about it. Did you know that about 1 in 8 women in the UK get cancers. Every year 62,000 people in the UK are told something that changes their live and the lives of their families. Being diagnosed with a disease such as cancer is a nightmare some people relive over and over again.
Although I can go on and on about this. I just want you to join me in praying for the people out there suffering from this illness, and also donate to the cause of finding a cure for it. Let's fight this together. So that one day, everyone can flick their hair at the face of cancer. #BBCbigpink

Hey beauts, I'm back again. I've been away for the longest. I have literarily had a lot going on. Too much actually and I couldn't joggle blogging with everything else. I however must say that I have missed it dearly. Thank you for all those who messaged me, to ask what was going on and encourage me. God bless you all.
So I'm back and I'm better. Today I'm sharing with you my boss lady outfit.
It's autumn and this season it's all about suits; my favourite trend of A/W 17. You guys are going to be seeing a lot of suits on here. From day to night suit outfits, and casual to smart.
So lets get into this outfit shall we?
Sorry guys. This post is coming supper late for many reasons. Been so busy, and trying to get my act together lol. Anyways without further ado, let get into today's outfit. Summer, sadly, is coming to an end. Autumn is just around the corner. If you live in England then you'd see that summer is already long gone, because it's been nothing but rain, I haven't seen a sunny day in weeks. I bid the summer days goodbye with this transition into autumn (fall) outfit.
I got this jacket from BooHoo some months back. I was looking for a biker jacket in a bold colour. I had a black one, but used the life out of it, and it was time to let it go, hence my search for a new jacket. I loved this Jacket because of the black detailing of the zipper and black buttons.
Since we are still in a summer month and it's not as cold as autumn yet, (although it can be a little chilly when it starts to rain), I therefore paired this jacket with a short skirt and mesh top. The skirt is actually on the "too short" side for me, That's why I love the pleated side which is a little longer and flared out; which I think is really cute.
These shoe tho! These shoes are an embodiment of all things trending this season. From florals, to embroidery, embellishment and the tie/ lace up trend. I didn't wear these as much as I thought I would, but because of the design I feel like I will still be able to get some wear out of it during the next season.
That's it for this look guys. I hope you like it. Till next time x.

The weather has been funny lately. Just a couple of weekends ago, it was the hots it's ever been in England in 41 years. Now, the weather is back to the normal British, higgy-hagga weather. Sun one minute, cold the next. That's why I'm always prepare. Honestly, I literarily carry a light weight jacket or a scarf with me wherever I go, even in this "summer" weather. In England you just never know. I can't say I hate, cause I don't. I kinda like the unpredictability of the blessed climate.
Jumping to the outfit now. Today's outfit of the week is a navy inspired look. Next to the Italian inspired frills and florals, Strips are the next trending this summer. Strips came in like a flood last year and are still over flowing in stores, and I don't think the tide is going down anytime soon.
The sun was beaming HOT over the weekend. My Gawd! I loved and hated it. It was sunny and beautiful, but the heat was intense and at a point just burning. I felt uncomfortable and a little dizzy at times from dehydration, although I was consistently drinking water. The sun was soaking the water right out of me.
