There’s this popular saying that when life throws lemon at you that you should make lemonade. This was the case of a couple over the weekend. They decided to make lemonade out of the lemon Nature threw at them.

In case you don’t know, there was a heavy down pour of snow in some part of the US for some days. While a lot of people stayed in doors, the couple decided to do their pre-wedding shots in the snow.

Now they are so popular because of the photo shoot.

Stay with me, I am going somewhere with this story because it is not all about their sudden popularity…..

Did you hear or read about them? Check the gorgeous photo here.




You can never go wrong with pairing basics. On a day when you don’t know what to wear and no matter what the season is, turn to basics, they never let you down.


What is Basics ?


Basics are wardrobe staples or essential pieces in a functional wardrobe.

Some of the things I consider basics and I highly recommend that every one should have at least one of each in their closets include a denim, a classic white button down shirt, a black pair of pumps;low or high, a structured blazer and many more basics which you can see in my wardrobe essentials or wardrobe staple here.


HAPPY NEW YEAR ::: It’s the New Year, NOW LET GO !


Happy New Year Everyone !

I welcome you to a brand New Year, the year 2016.

How was 2015 for you?  Did you get all you hoped for? If you didn’t, you are not alone. Now, be thankful for what you got and for the things you didn’t get, it is now time to try again.

Give yourself a pat on the back for all you were able to do or achieve, forgive yourself for the mistakes you made and do everything possible not to dwell in your past.

If you need to, forgive yourself, let go, embrace the future and begin to work towards the greatness you have always wanted.

Trust me, you will do well only if you try, only if you don’t give up. Don’t quit, keep trying.

There is greatness inside of you.

I wish you the very best this year.




Memories they say last forever especially the good ones. Some of such memories are the pieces I have on in this post. It was when I had Daniel, my first son that I got this dress I have on and it was when I had Sammy, my second son that I got the pair of heels I have on and I have had them since then.

How long you may ask? It is been 9 long years for the heels and 11 long years for the dress. Too long right?  Because I cherish the memories this these two pieces bring, I will be keeping them forever please God.





It is my last day of work before Christmas and honestly if I could have my way I would have been finished by now. All the same, we have to do what we have to do. I know in my mind that it was going to be a short but busy day with last minute rush of shoppers & travellers trying to get home to be with their loved ones. I also had in my mind that there was going to be so much traffic.

On short but busy days like this, I love to spot an all black ensemble. Not only does it flatter the body or make you look slimmer, it is perfect for days when you want to feel like you didn’t try but look well put together.

Every other thing you need to know about black and wearing an all black ensemble and so many different look books can be found here.




The joy of Christmas is the reason why I decided red on red is the way to go for today’s post. Red as we all know is a christmas colour and aside that red symbolises happiness, passion, energy, strength and my favourite is LOVE amongst other things that red represents. This season is all about spending time with the people we love and care about, a time to merry, jolly, give and of course have so much fun.




Any one who has ever been a model would understand this look. By the way, I was once and I loved every moment of those days.

I know your next question will be why don’t you any more? My answer is always and hasn’t changed that in life, there is time for everything. For now, it is not time for modelling, may be in the future. I do pretend as if I am modelling in photo shoots though…lol.

On a model’s off duty day, all they want to do is relax and dress down with little or no make up on. The only thing they have time to do is to run errands and then prepare for their next “modelling gig” in whatever city they have to go to.

That is not to say models don’t glam up on their days off, they do indeed and they do it well too.

This look is also a perfect one for a casual Friday.




An elegant evening of party, great music, catch up conversation and great food calls for a subtle elegance and colour.

I went to enjoy some quality time the other evening and this was what I wore. This same dress was the one I wore here in Greece over the summer and I thought to wear it again and differently to the way I did the first time. Since the colour of the dress matches the christmas theme, I thought why not?

The dress also leaves so much room for me to eat as much without having to worry about my bulging tummy.




When I was looking for a title for this post, it wasn’t about the summer dresses we wore in the post but the personality of the one in the photos. I had the opportunity to meet Fumi in London recently. When I met her for the first time in person, it was as if we have been friends forever.

Not everyone can meet people for the first time in thier gym clothes but she did. That to me shows originality and confidence. When we got talking, original and confident are the two key words I can simply describe her with.
