I Know Girls Love Beyonce...

Beyonce is literally dominating all aspects of all and any possible industry right now & I wouldn't be surprised if she eventually took over the world. I for one would not resist her leadership! Do I love the woman? YES!

Last week, not only was the Beyonce for H&M Summer campaign video released, but I was granted the great opportunity to see her in concert live at the LG Arena, Birmingham! Never have I been so excited in my life. That week actually sent my heart into overdrive!

Getting the opportunity to see her live made my admiration for her grow. Mother, Wife, Daughter, Business woman and worldwide icon, she holds it all down! It's almost like she was this myth and legend that I can now admit t being real. Her work ethic is only one that I can aspire to gain myself.

I did attempt to record some footage of the show, but the storage on my phone was literally so full no matter how much I deleted, videos would only last a few seconds. Sad times!
I'll still upload them, but like I said, the quality won't be amazing! Sorry!
Also, please excuse me singing in the background haha I couldn't stop myself!

Beyonce singing 1+1

Beyonce having a nice little chat with us. Check her attempt at a British accent out!

My friend Louise & I, waiting for Queen B to come on stage.
Could my cheeks get any bigger?!

Who doesn't love Beyonce? If the answer to that is 'me', then please refer yourself into a psychiatric ward. You need help!
Just sayin' :)

New Endeavours

So, yesterday was a day full of revelations and new beginnings for me. I woke feeling fresher and happier than I have been and had a hot head full of ideas and opportunities. I'd say it had something to do with my little night time conversation with the big GOD the night before and a little alone time. The result? I've taken up a few more hobbies!

As you may or may not know, I have a minor obsession over jewellery and so it only felt right that I should at least attempt to learn how to make it. I've been wanting to do this for a good few years now and so I decided to just go for it and buy the necessary basic tools off Ebay. I'm still waiting a few more components to arrive, but as soon as they do I'm ready and raring to get stuck in!

I've also joined a free online language learning website in order to teach myself Italian! Another interest I've been looking toward for some time now. It's called Busuu.com if you want to check it out! I've not commenced as of yet though, but i'll let you know when I do!

I'll keep you updated with how they go. Wish me luck!

Nottingham BBloggers Meet Up.

 So last Saturday, Saadiya, Gavina and I attended the Nottingham BBloggers meet up! It was so nice to be able to spend a day with people who have the same interests as you! Such a great platform for sharing and spreading ideas and getting yourself known!

Below are a few pictures from throughout the day. I must confess though, some have been stolen from fellow bloggers as my camera has broken :(. I did take a few on my phone but the quality really isn't that great.
This was my OOTD. All black eerrythingg with a little splash of neon colour!
Dress - ASOS, Jacket & Necklace - H&M, Bag - Florence
Trend Tv (Gavina, Saadiya and I) with Rebekah, of happyrebekah.blogspot.co.uk

Me, trolling through the rails of COWVintage. I found some very cute shorts which I will try to post up once my camera is back up and running!

Lovely random image of Saadiya, Rebekah and Kae-Toya having chats and photographs!

Here is Gavina photgraphing Alice, of alicesstylenotes.blogspot.co.uk

And again, with Kae-Toya, of miakhymai.blogspot.co.uk

Last but not least we have the wonderfully cooky,  Carmen, of  www.maidenofwood.com .
She had the most amazing hair and glasses which I was quite positively fascinated by.
Be sure to check out all the blogs! It's lovely to see how widespread and local the blogging world really is.

So it's no secret that i'm a lover of a good hat! Snapbacks, beanies, bowlers and trilbies all find themselves situated in my wardrobe! And I have just found a new hat to obsess over!

A small lifestyle brand from London, Underated Co. are producing uniquely printed, patterned and slogan clothing  for all you urban trend setters out there. I've already purchased one of their leopard print dope snapbacks, and now have my eye on their floral print strapback!

Look how pwetty!
Great option if you're into snap and strap backs but worry about looking too boyish!
The floral print really adds a softer more girly touch.
They've also some great Givenchy-ess printed t-shirts and sweat shirts but at £50 a pop I won't be buying them quite as freely as their cheaper priced head wear  However, if you sign up t their mailing list, or follow them on Instagram, they're always throwing out discount codes and special offers!

This Athens print tee is sold out unfortunately :(
But I've signed up to the mailing list for when it comes back in stock. I think it would look great tucked into some high-waisted bottoms or tied up as a crop.

This is my leopard print snapback with dope written across the back and underated written under the peak.
I love it! Unlike the overplayed 'Obey', 'New Era' etc snapbacks that everyone has, no one has this!
And it's perfect for bad hair & gym days!

Check out their website here.
Or visit them at Underateco.com
