My Denim Dilemma

fullsizeoutput_459bI’m sure I am not the only one who has had denim struggles since day dot. I have never had a pair of jeans that i’ve been content with ever. So last month I made it my mission to go on a hunt for a pair of jeans I love. Previously I have bought jeans from most high street stores, online stores and the classics like Levi’s however, none have been what I’ve been looking for.

I was aiming to find a variation of style and colour of jeans from black, grey to dark and light blue – including ripped non ripped, cropped and not cropped. I personally not a fan of ‘spray on’ skinny jeans.

Anyway what I found was my perfect pair of light blue jeans which were fitted well around the waist and good around the bum then a little more relaxed around the leg whilst still maintaining a fitted look and the perfect ankle (I roll up the bottom a bit to give a cropped look) these jeans remind me of the Copenhagen street style which was exactly what I was looking for. I found these jeans in Sandro (which I now love – the jackets, jumpers and denim in their shop was to die for, I wanted everything). They were supposed to be £175 but because I bought them at Bicester village they were only £100. However, they were in the sale so was actually only £49 which was similar to prices in high street shops like Topman so I definitely recommend heading to Bicester for a bargain.

I’m still on the hunt for some nice black and grey jeans but I will definitely be keeping an eye out on Sandro – their website doesn’t do them justice go visit a store!

My DNA story & Prejudism

Screen Shot 2018-05-28 at 11.05.58.png

Whilst I was not naïve and was aware I had very little English in me, I believed I knew all there was to know about my family and where I was from but, I was wrong. I wanted the Ancestry DNA kit for a while, the process includes spitting in a tube and posting it to America and waiting 6 weeks for the results – odd I know.

The kit was £79 and from my perspective was worth every penny. Not only does it trace what countries you originate from it also matches you to close and distant relatives that show similarities your DNA and links your data to family trees on the site.

My Results:

So I am basically a concoction of everywhere (apart from Africa and Far-East Asia – odd considering I have always been told my grandad was Madagascar – turns out he was in fact from an island in the Melanesia region in the Pacific).

What I love about this DNA test is that it shows you how all of us on this world are so similar and if you look hard enough we all are linked in one way or another. It proves to me that we are all part of one race and no one is better than another, I would love for those who have this superior mentality to other races and religions to do this test and get a shock that they themselves are part of a race which they can be so horrid towards. We are all on this world together so more love and less hate please.

Looking for a lunch spot in London?

Ok if you are ever in London and want a quick but chíc lunch you have to go to EatbyChloe in Covent Garden

It is a vegan fast food restaurant, the food was incredible and so were the vibes – especially the swing chairs. Very aesthetically pleasing

I loved everything we ordered, omg the ‘parmesan crust’ – Yum

I love you London and i’m definitely going to be back to ByChloe and try the meatball sub.

 

Thanks Sophie Bala for taking me to these fab places (and for the insta shots) xo

By the way this jumper was a bargain find in Bershka on sale. I love the way it fits and the whole style of it. A perfect spring hoodie for this time of year. All outfit details will be linked below….

The ‘tracksuit’ of dreams

I got this beauty from Zara. I had been wanting one for ages after I saw a blogger shooting it in Joe&Juice in London one day. Since I have searched everywhere for something similar and the closest I got was one in Dior which was extortionate.

I am in love with it for so many reasons:

1- It is sooo comfortable so it is a perfect airport outfit or for a long car journey

2- It isn’t like the ‘typical’ tracksuit you would in-vision It gives you comfort and style

3- It fits so well. Mine is a small which does fit well for me now but in the christmas period maybe a little bit on the small side – I blame the cheese board.

4- The CROPPED leg. I know I am about a year or two late to this trend but I don’t care i’m living for it

5- The matching navy and burgundy stripes on both the jacket and the bottoms. Which goes perfectly with my watch strap i’m currently wearing.

This tracksuit is more suitable for spring but I am finding it so hard to not wear it now in the colder months  especially here in England (I do but I freeze).

It is perfect teamed with a plain white t-shirt like I have here, I usually tuck it in. In terms of shoes low top trainers are my favourite. My all time favourite shoes to wear with this are my Gucci ace sneakers when I bought them it was literally for an outfit like this. Although I do love wear my classic vans with this outfit too.
