I can’t lie guys, I’m happy with the reads on my blog at the moment. No, it’s not millions but believe me, I didn’t imagine that anyone would stop off here. There is apparently a blog created very 3 minutes in this massive world we live in and sometimes you can’t help but thing that that you’re going to get swallowed up in the entire thing and not get noticed. However, I can proudly say that I have a small but amazing group of people who often shout me out and feedback on my site and I really appreciate that.

I realised the other day that even though I’ve had this site for a number of years now, I’ve never really shared any fun facts about myself. I did of course attempt a T.M.I Tag but honestly I didn’t really enjoy it. I’m trying to get more visual and have taken to doing more live streams which are proving pretty popular but I still struggle with YouTube. I have untold respect for Youtubers it really does look easy from the outside but it really isn’t. I’m just more comfortable with taking pictures and writing so will jump in and out of the video world until I find my footing.

So to make this process a little more interesting, I’ve decided to share 33 facts about me as that’s how old I am. (Yes, I know I don’t look it :)) Get to know me a little better.


  1. Yes I really am 33 and I’m 34 next April!

  8. I can’t swim! (this is on my bucket list though, I hope to learn by the age of 100 at least. You’ll often find me paddling in the shallow end taking pictures.
  9. I’m 1/2 Jamaican, 1/2 Bajan
  10. I’m in LOVE with affordable fashion and genuinely love confusing people when they hear how cheap my clothes are. But please note, I’ve got nothing against high end brands so if you want to send me an LV I’m all game.
  11. I hate romance films with a passion! I’m not anti romance though I just hate watching the mushy stuff, particularly in the cinema.

About this look…

I thought I’d throw one more thing into the mix and throw in this look for extra measure. As you must be aware of my now, I love everything5pounds.com. I’m unsure why they have taken so long to sponsor me but to be honest, it’s only a matter of time. I picked up this gorgeous set two months ago when I vowed to stop online shopping but succumbed after around 5 minutes and bought 5 things! It’s not in stock anymore which is a shame but there are similar looks on their site and I can honestly say the quality of their clothes is impressive and they never fail to deliver.

The feedback on this look has been CRAZY. Instagram is fast becoming my favourite platform because the feedback is instant. The top and bottom was £5 each. I completed the look with my massive clear shades from Roman Road market, E15- London and my boxfresh Nikes from Sports Direct.


I Hope you enjoyed this! Look out for more posts like this one and #MyMusicMyMood which I’m bringing back to sashashantel.com


Sasha Shantel X Love Leggings #LiveInLove

I hadn’t heard of this brand before they reached out to me for a collaboration. But I can honestly say that I was missing out as I have never worn a pair of jeans so comfortable; and I mean NEVER! I practically shot this look then returned home and wore it at home too. That’s the kind of comfortable I am referring to.

Orange Is The Colour

I’ve never ever purchased an orange blazer before. In fact; I don’t really own much orange clothing. But there is something really amazing about this orange blazer. I have your typical black and blue blazers, I also own yellow and green blazers, but nothing beats my new fave. I had already planned my all white ensemble and knew that the blazer would make it a LOOK. But, I honestly was not ready for this.

Stunting In My Green Shein Suit

Don’t I honestly look like a Jazz musician in this suit? lol; but I absolutely love it! I really wanted to try something a LOT different from my norm. Fashion is about pushing boundaries and not always sticking to your comfort zone. This suit couldn’t be further from my comfort zone. A bright green, not tight fitting suit teamed with big black boots. I never felt so free in this easy and effortless look.
