Why are the majority of us so inclined to supported brands and people we do not know but when it comes to people we know, whether it be friends, family or associates, we turn a blind eye? I cannot and will not say I am completely guilt free in this. But, over the last few years I have really made a conscious effort to step up my game and buy from designers and independent brands that are home grown. I recently collaborated with Dolly House Clothing, a local business run by a fabulous woman named Donna who hand makes and prints or her designs from her home office. The effort and attention to detail on all her clothing is amazing and the African themed clothing and garments with an inspiring and empowering message are complimentary to my taste.  I love the way that she not only caters for women, but also makes garments for men, children and the home too.

Recently, I had the opportunity to wear two of Donna’s creations, an amazing tie-up detailed African print top and the POWER tee- which got a LOT of attention on my Instagram. The true question is, we like these brands but how many of us actively reach into our pockets and invest in their growth?

I say this as I was recently scrolling through my Instagram  explore page and saw another picture of Kylie Jenner, sitting in the midst of designer bags and it made me think, it has been everyday folk who have helped to heavily line her pockets and while she fast approaches billionaire status, when was the last time her audience supported themselves or their own? It’s a question which needs to be apart of a wider debate and perhaps I may pose the question on my Instagram stories and discuss in when I finally do give my YouTube a good go in 2020.

I loved both items and found them really easy to style just by simply changing my accessories; whether it be my shoes, bag, jewellery or all three, I would highly recommend her clothing and will be rocking them again in a later post.

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.
