NOW WAIT A MINUTE.

BEYONCE 7:11

Bey dawg dropped a new video last night for new single 7/11 and both the song and the vid are absolute foolishness…in the best way possible!!!  Who doesn’t wanna spill alcohol with Bey, get that azz slapped by Bey, shake it off with Bey???

I love that the vid cost next to no dollas!  Living!!!  This bish is like Christmas morning, only with her you don’t know it’s coming.

I wonder how many vid-a-likes we’re going to see crop up!

See the vid after the jump!

BLOOMSBURY

CYRENA-MONIQUE-RADLEY-1

Me and Radley go waaaay back!  I’m kidding, we really only just properly met.  Radley to me was that person that everyone talks about, that you’ve seen before, but are not really sure what all the fuss is about.  Well, if you read my post here, you’ll know that I have a new found love and respect for the brand.

Meet my new bag, yes, it is a Radley bag!  I’m a convert!  She’s from the Bloomsbury collection, and it was a toss up between this one and the cute round “canteen” shaped messenger bag.  I love the minimal look of the collection; I went for the small grab bag as I wanted to add a different shape to my bag collection.  However the canteen is still calling me, I just can’t get enough!!

STYLE CRUSH: SOLANGE KNOWLES

SOLANGE BOWLING

This week’s Style Crush is non other than Solange Knowles! The princess of prints and champion of the natural hair styles.

The moment Solange stopped trying to fit in, stopped tyring to look like everybody else, and decided to be herself, get in her own lane – there was a shift.  She became her own person, and everybody started to look at her differently – not just as Beyoncé’s younger sister, but as Solange, the style icon.

It goes back to what i was saying here, don’t try to be someone you’re not just to get people to like you.

COURTYARD

CYRENA-MONIQUE-COURTYARD-1

I don’t know about wherever in the world you are, but the weather has been shite here!  Rainy day after rainy day, literally.  Today was the first day we had a dry day, although it was grey AF, we had to find some time in between errands and meetings to snap some pics!

I love, love, love a striped top, particularly a black and white one ( a navy and white can get it too).  It’s that time of the year where you can double up on your outerwear; I wore this longline tee with some ripped jeans, my leather jacket, and my camel overcoat.  I christened my new flats, they took inspiration from these Marni beauties; right now it ain’t about that Marni money, so we settle with the beloved Zara!

MODEL CRUSH: MARIA BORGES

ADRIANA DEGREAS SS15

This week’s Model Crush is Maria Borges; the Angolan born 5’11” model who names Riccardo Tisci, James Scully, and Katie Grand as her honorary Godparents.  Maria was discovered when she placed second in the Elite Model Look Angola 2010 and was promptly signed to Supreme Management in New York.  A moth later she was right in the thick of Fashion Week, booking 17 shows in her first season!

The model, famously know for her legs, has walked for Marc Jacobs, Tom Ford, Dior, and exclusively for Riccardo Tisci at Givenchy for 2 seasons!

Borges has posed semi nude for none other that Carine Roitfeld in CR Fashion Book (styled by Shiona Turini), featured on the cover of Vogue magazine, and has claimed her wings as a Victoria’s Secret angel.

The model is in no doubt about to claim that “super” status, but for now she is taking her career step by step.

MOTIVATION.

ASK FOR IT

This is soooo true, there have been so many things over the years that have happened, wishes come true, people coming into my life – after I’ve vocalised what I really want.

It’s one thing to think about it or wish for it, but once you vocalise it and really mean it – even if it’s just to yourself – a spark happens to set things in motion.  It also gives you the motivation to make it happen even more.

So go on, ask for it, put it out there, let the Universe take it on and send it back to you!

MANI MONDAY: ENGLISH ROSE

ENGLISH ROSE

Who isn’t still in love with a bit of pink?  Yes I’m still here obsessed with the ‘ol dusky shades, sooo…

This week’s nail art inspiration is “English Rose”, various shades of dreamy dusky pinks mixed with glitter, crystals, silver balls, studs, and chains.

BLOGGER CRUSH: THE HAUTE PURSUIT

addisonwhiteslitmaxibodycondress3

I have been obsessed with Vanessa Hong’s style since I first saw her blog, The Haute Pursuit, about 3 or 4 years ago.  Vanessa effortlessly mixes casual and sportswear pieces with high fashion, and has perfected this style to a fault.  Whether fully clothed or baring skin, her images are always sexy, outfits always flawless, and attitude 100% haute.

If you haven’t seen it already, check out her blog here.
