On the 25th of October I was invited down to Schuh on Market Street in Manchester – to check out their new refurbished store. If your a local to Manchester you know what the original Schuh was like they did have quite a broad range of shoes, if you thought that was good wait till you step into the store now.
On arrival, the store was popping with customers eager to shop their wide range of shoes. As soon as I walked in I knew this was going be my new spot to pick up my kicks from. There is such a great selection from trainers to boots, they have a section for kids and all the top brands from Timberland, Doc Martens to UGG.
Schuh also had legendary tattoo artist, Demon Dance providing free Dr. Martens customisation which looked insane. Not to mention their Doc Martens range itself, they have so many different pairs to choose from there is definitely something for everyone. As winter is kicking in there is no better time to purchase a pair of Docs!
Obviously I had to have a look at the trainers and see what would catch my eye. I’ve been wanting a pair of Puma style runners for the longest time, the colour-ways they have in-stock are insane. However, they are more of a summer shoe so SS20 catch your girl sporting a pair.
Another new release which caught my eye whilst I was there was the Air Force 1 Anthracite in black. I fell in love as soon as I laid my eyes on them! Sadly, they were out of my size 😦 My search didn’t stop there, because as soon as I spotted the black and white Nike Zoom 2Ks I had to try them on. When I tell you they are SO comfy, I’m not kidding it’s like they are a mattress for your feet. The decision was made, I wanted them so I got them – I cannot wait to style them.
If you haven’t already get yourself down to Schuh on Market Street, Manchester you won’t be disappointed. A huge thank you to Schuh for having me!
I know i’ve been AWOL but I’ve been creating content for my other platforms etc. However your girl is back. I thought I’d share with you what I got up to at Selfridges to prepare for Eid.
I got invited down to the Trafford Centre to visit the Beauty Insiders at Selfridges & Co. The beauty insiders counter is a concession where you can book yourself a treatment with a beauty brand whether that’s make up or skincare and get a 1 to 1 session.
I chose to get my make-up done, the lovely Leah introduced me to the new Natasha Denona Pallete and can I just say what a beautiful pallete it is. I opted for an orange smokey eye, and I was obsessed with the look Leah created. The beauty insiders counter is mazing if you want that intimate 1 on 1 session with a beauty expert.
I then headed up to the food hall, where I picked up some food from Ping Pan Asian. I love trying new foods and the garlic chicken and rice I’d totally recommend. There are so many choices, as well as it being halal. You can check them out on Instagram at: @ping_panasian and on Twitter at: @PPanasian
I filmed a little vlog of my day preparing for Eid so if you want to see what I got up to do go give it a watch.
NARS have launched another Orgasm collection this year, with a few new additions to the line. I got invited down to Selfridges Exchange Square for a masterclass demoing the products. If you want to hear about what I got up to, carry on reading.
Around 2 weeks ago I got invited down to The Whiskey Jar in the Northern Quater. This was to mark the start of Fashion Revolution week, and honour the six-year anniversary of the Rana Plaza disaster in Bangladesh which killed 1,134 people in the country’s worst industrial disaster.
The Bee Thrive a Manchester-based ethical and sustainable fashion brand hosted the event, where you could swap your fast fashion tees for its sustainable organic T-shirts. The event was booming with passionate individuals about the fashion industry. I was enlightened by so much information, it’s something we don’t think about consciously and I really think we should.
It was insightful to listen to the founder of the Bee Thrive Gemma Gratton and how her business idea came about as well as understanding the idea that every little change we make to our purchases and our wardrobes were helping a lot more than we think.
The event was also showcasing other brands such as Fabric for freedom which are a sustainable fashion brand who had their collection available – we honestly fell in love with some of the pieces.
The Bee Thrive also did a cat walk with pieces available in their new collection and can I just say I was obsessed with the jumpsuit. The pieces in the collection are so versatile and will live forever in your wardrobe for sure. SO do check the Bee Thrive by clicking here.
We also heard other stories on people who changed their lifestyle by not using plastic, it was crazy to hear how easy it is. For example, by not buying a water bottle from Sainsburys and just using a reusable water bottle.

Black Lips printed Oversized Long Sleeve Shirt Dress – This T-Shirt dress is an essential for all year round as you could style with a pair of boots in the summer of wear it as an oversized t-shirt like I did. I wanted to show you both ways I’d wear it, so for this dress I’d wear it as an oversized tee for that more casual look. I think tucked in to a pair of trousers/leather leggings/jeans this is such a look. You can dress this up easily with big earrings and a pair of heels. Or if you’re feeling casual some white trainers and a bomber jacket. Also, can I just add that the sleeves on this t-shirt are that extra big longer which I just love.
Black Give in to me Slogan Oversized T-shirt Dress – This t-shirt dress I styled it with a tape belt to snatch in the waist. I think this is so much more flattering with a belt and makes the outfit look a lot more put together. This could easily be dressed up with a pair of heels or dressed down by adding a denim jacket and a pair of trainers. No matter what the occasion you could wear this fit. This dress is a prefect dupe for a Givenchy T-Shirt so if you’re on a budget but want to look stylish I’d definitely recommend this. Again, the sleeves are that extra bit long giving you that extra comfort. I love how oversized this is so definitely size up if you want it baggier.
Grey High Neck Cropped Loungewear Set – You all know I’m a sucker for some good lounge wear. So, this co-ord is perfect to lounge around in. However, it could easily be dressed up add a leather jacket, some sunglasses and a small bag and your good to go. I love grey and this is the perfect shade and fits like a glove hugging your figure in all the right places. You know them days when you have to do all the errands, but you want to look stylish but be comfy – this outfit is made for them kind of days. I’d want the sleeves to be a little longer, just for that extra comfort.
Khaki Stripe Hooded Crop Sweater Jumper – You all know I live in hoodies, so I’m glad this is now in my collection. Hoodies are just so easy to wear; I love how this was styled on the model. Some black high waist jeans and a pair of white air force and your good to go. You could even layer with this hoodie which I think makes it so much more versatile. I think even a Calvin Klein bralette would look super cute under this hoodie almost like you haven’t thought about your fit when lowkey you’ve thought it all out. The sleeve length is that extra bit long which can I just say I’m obsessed with. The white stripes across the sleeves add that little bit more of a sportier vibe to the hoodie. As you all know I love streetwear and anything that little bit more street I’m here for. We all love a girl who looks like she plays all sports (couldn’t be me).
