Merhaba! If you follow me on snapchat and Instagram, you’ll know I’m currently headed to an ickle place called Reyhanli in the south of Turkey to do some volunteer work and help out with whatever really. From what I know and have seen/creeped, a majority of people in and around the area are victims of the Syrian crisis, potentially refugees, and there are loads of cute children whom I want to hug endlessly! *(you’ll more than likely get a more detailed description of what I’m doing once I get there!) The organization itself is called ‘SKT welfare’ based in the UK and they operate on a 100% donation policy which I love love love. I went to uni for Intl. Development and loved every second of what I learned, but the hypocrisy of some NGO’s and charitable organizations who raise loads of money for those in need but fail to deliver it in its entirety is always mind boggling. (err Grenfell Tower, where’d it all go?) but anyways, I’m super excited and looking forward to have that ‘on-the-grounds’ experience and just share whatever I can offer to do my bit for humanity really. I wanted to go into development to… View Post

unisex trainers. that is all. Aldo has come out with the Aldo Mx trainers in a range of pretty must-have shades of the season! [white, black, soft pink, light grey, beige, light tealy green, and red] Literally a trainer which looks slick AF without the extras, just a chic clean-cut shoe with which the styling options are endless! They’re categorized by women/mens in terms of sizes, but the shoe style itself stays exactly the same which is super neat! (cue couple ootds #twinning) I was sent the white pair by the lovelies at Aldo, and tbh my eyes had to adjust to how impeccably white they looked in the box haha (my converse are due for a wash) mamas main concern was how I was going to wear them without getting them dirty lawl. Styled them with this gorg two-piece from Zara which had me feeling pretty shofishticated when I tried it on (I know its spelt incorrectly..!); don’t quite own a ‘suit’ per say in me wardrobe, which I convinced myself every teacher should have (right?!) et voila! Also super in love with me belt bag and felt it added to the street-chic look/vibe thingamajig I was going for… View Post

Another Huw Roman piece coming at you today! (click here incase you missed the first piece!) Envision a unique, upscaled upgrade to the everyday shirtdress, and you’ve got this gorgeous lightweight beauty! This is the Raglan Shirt Dress, made from a beautiful material called ‘oxijewel’ developed by one of Japan’s most reputable fabric makers, Toray. It’s extremely lightweight which makes it super comfortable alongside being super practical because a) loads of room to move within, and b) pockets!! It’s also got a bit of a ballooning bulge if you will (in a good way!) which gives it this voluminous elegance as you walk. Super intentional lol as the bulge falls vertically rather than out from the side in order to provide that depth effect! Absolutely in love with the sleeves on this; the bulge effect carries into the sleeves a tad, tapering down into a thickish cuff which is beaut! Hopefully you’ve had a chance to check out Haute Elan by now! In case you haven’t, it’s literally ‘the’ spot for the latest in all things modest fashion! Housing over 200 designers from all over the world, they ship to customers in 220 countries and offer a seamless shopping experience across desktops, mobiles… View Post

I present you Huw Roman Inc., an up-and-coming modest wear fashion company out of Tokyo aspiring to provide quality and comfort to women all over the world. The Huw Roman woman is a woman with strong moral principles, one who is honest, intellectual, sophisticated, delicate, independent, chic, charming, modern and who has a lot of faith in oneself. (Am I allowed to be slightly flattered?!) The core concept behind the brand is also based upon these characteristics, with “粋” (Iki) – representing delicacy, individuality and chicness and”薫” (Kaoru) representing the atmosphere of illusion, nuance, romanticism, and reality. I was sent this beautiful kimono sleeve jacket alongside another piece (you’ll see it soon promise!) and I kid you not, even my 98 year-old grandmother insisted on having a feel because yes, it looked that gorgeous. The magic lies in the material which features an uneven grosgrain fabric which is thin, glossy, and rich in texture. Using grosgrain allows the appearance of a more causal and relaxing look; so although the sleeves appear to be a kimono sleeve, it’s been designed in such a way that they gradually widen in shape towards the cuff. It also features a beautiful back slit kept together with a black… View Post

Mumbai was one of those secret ‘don’t tell mum until you’re back’ kind of trips, only because I’d just got back from Nepal a couple weeks prior and mum had gone through the routine ‘okay you’re back now chill out for a bit and save some money’ spiel so you get my drift yea?! India’s always been on my list but I swore to never go alone or in a group of girls what with it being blasted in the media at one point about female travellers being attacked etc etc etc. and if I went it would be to see the Taj first, but things don’t always work out they way you’d like them to do they lol one visa rejection later plus multiple counts of stressing, we were off to Mumbai for 3 days! I introduce to you Ms. Amani and Ms. Julie, two lovelies with whom I work with, and bloody 3 days in Mumbai being Julie’s mad idea lol but its them random ones that make you glad you went for it isn’t it! We nearly missed our connecting flight in Dubai (I’ve never had to run for a flight til this point, thanks guys!) but… View Post
