So Spring Summer 2019 is in full bloom and the weather has been fantastic with the exception of a couple days here and there that has brought back some chills. However, I reckon if we survived cold winter days of minus 3 degrees then we can definitely survive a few chilly but brighter days.
For me personally, I have nothing to complain about as I came back from one of the best holiday ever, recently. I went to Freetown, Sierra Leone and I loved every minute of my 15 days out there.
If you follow me on Instagram then you would have noticed some of the things I have been up to as I lived on my stories. Honestly, there was very little that was not instagramable. From the beautiful beaches, to the tasty and healthy food, it was truly paradise.

Major fashion houses have added them to their collection for Autumn/Winter 2018/19.
London Fashion Week AW19 was one of the best as far as street style was concerned. It was a real pleasure to mingle with other creatives to show what London was all about in style. I personally think moving the event to Trauma Brewery in East London was inevitable seeing the direction the fashion scene was going.
When it comes to streetwear, London is one of the leading cities in the world with east London serving as the creative hub.
I was left a bit disappointed with the brands that showed this year. I did not feel inspired by most of the collections I saw.
