JPEG not RAW


 Long sleeve tshirt // Primark similar (here)
Necklaces Primark ( similar here)
Tailored jogger trousers // Boohoo
Puffer jacket // Aliexpress
Trainers// Vans - Sk8 Hi from Schuh



 Hi guys,

Welcome back to my blog. I've noticed that all of my blog posts always start of with an apology for being MIA, but yeah lol. I am sorry.

This background and outfit go together so well. It is probably one of my favourite pictures, but too bad. I accidentally shot this in JPEG and not raw. It's making these picture look like I took it with my phone or something and I really dislike that. But what can I do lol? I'm too busy and too lazy to re-shoot an outfit, plus my personal photographer who I have taught quite well (my little brother), is very impatient and only likes taking pictures of me for personal gain ( personal gain as in a little photo-shoot with the boys in return) lol.

But anyways, enough with the random story\rant lol. So winter is coming and its coming really hard. It's bloody freezing lately but with this puffer jacket, Its kind of impossible to freeze lol. Its very padded, the hood is huge, it has a batwing and I like the crop/ cut of the jacket. The only downside is that it is a quarter sleeved jacket instead of having full sleeves. I've worn it so much that it has makeup and dye stains all over it, and so I've ordered another one as it it only £19.50
I wore these really nice boohoo jogger trousers with a simple, plain t shirt that I had bought from the Men's section of Primark and matched it with my very uncomfortable Sk8 Hi Vans.
(excuse the wig, it was a hot.mess.com)

Thank you very much for reading this post, & I will see you in the next one. Bye!

Room decor haul

Hello everybody, welcome back to my blog!

It's been such a long time since I've done a haul but to get back into it, I will do a home wear haul.

So many things have happened to me lately but I will probably talk about that in my other post because this post is going to be only about room decor/ home wear. This time last year I told you guys that me and my siblings swapped rooms before I left for uni. I wanted to make this room different from the last one.

I was supposed to have a room tour video or picture post (which ever you guys want, or both maybe?) but I can't as my room is not fully done yet. I still need new floors, new curtains, some shelves, paint my doors, more decorative pieces need to be purchased and also, some corners of my room are not fully painted but so far, so good. 

But for now, please enjoy these few decorative pieces that I bought for my room.

                                                                                                                                                                   

   1. Ugly ass plant that I really regret spending my money on. Oh btw, it's from Primark. This faux plant looks very faux & I regret spending my £5 on this lol. It doesn't look that bad in this angle but trust me, in real life it is (you can also see the Styrofoam that holds the flowers in place, ew) . Once I buy my shelve, I will put it on there but if I am still not feeling it, then I will have to give it to my brother who is also currently redecorating. I should have listened to my mum when she told me not to buy this. Never buy decorations when you don't have a concept for your room guys!


   2.  High pile rug // IKEA. I absolutely love this rug, It brings my room together and grey is also               my accent colour for my room. The rug was £10. (the rings do not come included)


3. Candles // Primark. I have never in my life, been into candles until I bought these two candles from Primark. I burn candles whenever I come back straight from uni. I bought the sea salt & lavender one only because of the tin/ packaging, so that I can put my rings in them. If it was not for the packaging, I would have never bought it because I hate the smell of lavender. It smells like old people and toilet stuff  *shrugs shoulders*.  The other one (the white marble candle) I bought because it looks and smells nice, I forgot what the scent was. I think it was sandalwood with something, not sure what it was.  If I finish the wax for the white candle, should I use the candle holder for another faux plant or not? because I was planning to not buy anymore faux plants and succulents for my room.


4. Another faux plant // Primark. Guys, look how beautiful and real this plant looks. The stones, the plant pot, everything is perfect. I absolutely love this. Now, this was worth the £5. This plant makes the other one look really cheap and ugly. 


    5. Monstera leaf (faux) // IKEA. I feel like you guys got the picture from when I included a lot of                     rooms that had monstera leaves on this blog post, I am so obsessed with them lol, I actually bought two. £3.50 for one leaf, I didn't mind paying, because to me they look real. 
           

6. Vase // IKEA. I love the colour, the height and most importantly, its abnormal shape. It was originally £15, then it went down to £8 and then I got it at £4. Bargain!







I really hope that you enjoyed this post, & I will see you in my next one. Bye!

Hello guys, welcome back to my blog!

So, second year of uni has just started and I have been quiet busy with that. I was ready for second year during the summer but now that I've started, I'm kind of scared lol. All of my lecturers are not failing to state that second year is going to be extra hard and by them saying that, it's making me feel very uneasy and nervous lol. Kinda feel like giving up. kinda feel like pushing through and getting good grades this year too. Week 1 of uni was more of an introduction while week 2 is already lowkey serious lol. I just had my 9am lecture and now, I am currently on my one hour break, contemplating life. Wish me luck on my university career lol.

Thank you for reading this post, and I will see you in my next one. Bye!

How can somebody be so rude?!




Hi guys, welcome back to my blog!

This blog post is going to be a mini story/rant about something that happened to me a few days ago. So, on the 23rd of September, Me, my mother, uncle and auntie took a trip to Birmingham. I had a wonderful day. We shopped, we explored and we did so many other fun things until this happened...

So, what had happened was that I was throwing some litter in the bin. I was in the bin zone (bin zone is a little square/ rectangle marking around the bin, allowing anybody that wants to throw litter in the bin to be out of other people's way and to only be in that zone) and this random, rude, uneducated, imbecile decided to hold onto my jacket and then he DRAGGED me OUT of the bin area with force(mind you, HIS foot was half in the bin zone). Because his foot and a little bit of his body was half in the bin zone, when he dragged me out of there, I ended up landing fully in front of him. So now that I am in front of him, He then decided to take both of his filthy hands to then PUSH ME out of the way. After that, he decides to take two steps away from me just to mumble something rude under his breath & after he mumbled under his breath, he starts speaking out loud and he says "MOVE OUT THE FUCKING WAY, CAN YOU? YOU'RE IN MY FUCKING WAY"

I got disrespected 4 times by him in the space of 5 minutes.


  1. HE DRAGGED ME OUT OF THE BIN AREA WITH SO MUCH AGGRESSION
  2. HE THEN USES HIS HANDS TO PUSH ME OUT OF THE WAY
  3. MUMBLES SOMETHING RUDE & OFFENSIVE ABOUT ME UNDER HIS BREATH
  4. HE THEN STARTS TO SPEAK LOUDLY AND SAYS "MOVE OUT THE FUCKING WAY, CAN YOU? YOU'RE IN MY FUCKING WAY"


How rude. I never felt so violated in my life. This man really dragged me as if I was a bloody 5p bag. I honestly was so flabbergasted at the whole situation, I needed to come back to earth because that was some uncultivated behaviour. I honestly wanted to cuss him out ( I did, but in my head) but I didn't because I would have just looked stupid. as he said all of those things to me, he was walking really fast (it just shows how much he isn't about that life). Birmingham city centre on an afternoon / evening is always so packed, so if I decided to shout curse words, anybody could have thought that I was directing those words to them or I would have just looked crazy lol. He probably wouldn't have heard them either. I honestly wanted to throw hands....... but I didn't lol. He honestly ruined my day, it wasn't even funny. Like, I was angry throughout my whole train journey.

But yeah, comment down below and tell me how you would have handled this situation.


thanks for reading & I will see you in my next post. Bye!

Femme en rouge Pt. 3



Mesh top \\ H&M
T shirt \\ H&M
Jeans \\ Primark
Court heels \\ Primark

Hello everyone, & welcome back to my blog!

I am so sorry for not updating my blog or Instagram in like over 3 weeks. My laptop was stopped working and so I had to take it to the repair shop. They said that my laptop has become too old and they recommended me to buy a new one since I need a lot of space for my assignments and so that it also isn't too slow for me. the laptop still works though, and so I gave it to my siblings and got a new one instead. I also haven't been updating on Instagram because for some reason, the app would always stop working and it would shut down. I had to install and uninstall the app 2 times ,but I am back now on both my blog and Instagram!

This is my last outfit for the colour series as it is no longer summer and because I don't think I have anymore colourful clothes lol. So, I am wearing a mesh top that I got from H&M with a t shirt  underneath it. I also got it from H&M. I wore my favourite jeans from Primark with my block heel court shoes, also from Primark.

Thank you for reading this post, and will see you in the next post, bye!

Femme en rouge pt.2

Trousers // Boohoo.com
Necklace & earring set // Accesorize
Mules // ? (similar here)


Hello everyone and welcome back to my blog!

This is part two of my red colour series. The only bright colour that I own in my wardrobe is red ( I feel like I say this all the times lol, but the thing is that I literally only own red as a bright colour in my wardrobe)
which is why I really wanted to challenge myself with this colour and my style too. I feel like my red outfits from this colour series has brought out my feminine side so far. I am wearing this lovely flared, spanish inspired top that I got from Primark, it was on sale for £1. I also wore pinstriped trousers from Boohoo to go with this outfit.


Thank you for reading this post & I will see you in my next one, bye!

Femme en rouge pt.1


 Ruffled shift dress // Primark (similar here, here, here, here & here)
Earrings // Accesorize
Heeled boots // Hidden Fashion

Hi guys, welcome back to my blog.

I know this is isn't really colourful, but I am wearing this ruffled floral shift dress that I got from Primark and my favourite heeled boots from Hidden. I am not really a dress kind of girl, in fact, I really feel uncomfortable when I wear them and I just don't feel like myself. Dresses are very feminine but I am nowhere near that lol. I don't own many dresses, I can legit count all of my dresses on one hand lol. But anyways, it was so hot In Brussels that day and so I decided to put on this dress and I even wore big dangly earrings (also not like myself lol) to complete the outfit.


Thank you for reading & I will see you in my next post, bye!
