I really have to be honest here and say Paris has never before appealed to me like it does for so many people. I like the city and its food and architecture but something always seems to be missing. I simply can’t lay a finger on why I feel that way. I have been to Paris so many times that I have lost count but just kept having the feeling of not enjoying it as I should. I joked the last time I was there that for some bizarre reason, every time I go to Paris, something unexpected happens that ruins my trip.
So when I told my blogger friend Lamich Kirabo that I was visiting Paris, she was absolutely sure I would love it this time around. Not the least because we were planning a collaboration.
I have never been to Paris Fashion Week before and now that I have been, the question on my mind is why have I not been before.
Paris and London have always had the sibling rivalry which goes back for centuries. As a Londoner myself, I automatically default to siding with London whenever there is a lighthearted banter about the two cities.
However, if fashion weeks are anything to go by then I can honestly say that Paris got this one. Paris fashion week is bigger, bolder, longer and have more big fashion houses than London. But anyway, I better shut up and allow you guys to enjoy the photos.

Cultured in Culture, or The Crowd – My people, or Standing out “with” the crowd or so many other titles I could have given this post looking at the photos my sister took of me on holiday in Freetown.
The idea to do this shoot was borne out of a strong desire to capture Freetown or even the people in a way that is very unassuming and unrehearsed. I had no desire to take photos at the plush side of town whether along the peninsular where you will find some of the most beautiful beaches in the world or indeed on the beautiful hills to the west of town. Government Wharf itself has a long and interesting history but I won’t go into it now. Partly because I do not know much of the history but yeah lets just leave that along shall we lol. So I will leave that to the history buffs out there to dissect.
Now where was I? oh yeah the reason for shooting at the Wharf. I personally think the Wharf represent the true hustle and bustle of Freetown in a way very few places do. It shows a people with unique individual stories that come together for a common purpose. The purpose of buying or to selling, rendering a service or solicit one, to see or to be seen. To chisel Continue reading Cultured in Culture | Government wharf, Freetown→
Ok this post is going to be super shot. And I don’t mean one of those posts in the past I promised to keep shot but ended up making long through describing how shot it was gonna be lol.
Anyone that know me in person knows that I absolutely love Paul Smith shoes. I mean Paul Smith is one of my favourite British designers so I guess it makes sense that I love his shoes. However, I did not realise I had this many shoes from Mr Smith until I added these beautiful derby into the collection. The last three receipts of shoes have all come from the same store, can you imagine?
