Hey darlings,

Wanna know what I've been getting up to for the past few months? Welllllll... I decided to start the process of laser hair removal. Now let's be honest, for those of you who also prefer to be smooth and hairless the process of constant shaving, waxing etc can be rather tedious. Now before I get into the details I want to make it very clear that I completely respect those of you who prefer to stay au natural, it's all down to personal preference and regardless a woman/man's body should be respected.

So, I had been contemplating the laser hair removal route for a few years now however I'd read about some horror stories/rumours that had slightly put me off. However further research lead me to come across Pulse Light Clinic who offer a range of skin treatments specialising in laser treatments such as laser hair removal.

The benefits of laser hair removal:

1. Reduction of ingrown hairs

2. Smoother skin

3. Not having to shave or wax

4. Less irritation to the skin

5. Permanent hair reduction

6. Reduces excessive hair growth (PCOS)

7. Smaller pores & easy stress free body

The way laser hair removal works is by the laser targeting the melanin in the dark hair follicle, to which the hair follicle is destroyed through a process called Photothermolysis. But as a lady with dark skin which obviously means high levels of melanin this was a concern, which then lead me to wonder "how on earth is that supposed to be safe if used on dark skin?" However after speaking with Pulse light clinic and reading into the treatment it was brought to my attention that newer laser machines have been designed to detect dark skin from the hair follicle, resulting in successful treatments for people with dark skin too. The most recommended laser for dark skin is the Gentle Max Pro.

I quickly booked my consultation a their Tottenham Court Road clinic which is free of charge including a patch test, after 48 hours I was ready to start my laser hair removal treatment. So far I have had 4 sessions for my under arms and the results gave been incredible. I could see a difference after my first session and I probably will only need one or two more. The recommended amount of sessions are up to eight dependant on the persons hair every six weeks. Head over to their website here for further info about laser hair removal and their range of services they have on offer. Keep your eyes peeled for news about what area I'll be moving onto next! 

Stay sassy, xoxo

London Lifestyle Awards 2017

Hey darlings, 

It's here, it's arrived! On Tuesday 14th November I attended the London Lifestyle Awards which has most definitely earned its right to be London's best night of the year. In attendance were London's best businesses, entrepreneur's and public figures. Their seventh year welcomed the awards on an even bigger and better scale hosted at London's multi award winning events venue The Brewery where guests arrived suited, booted and of course sassy. The dress code was so rightly stated as 'Dress for the Press' . The evening commenced with a drinks reception followed by fine dining which then lead on to the very much anticipated awards ceremony. We then celebrated and danced the night away with a special after party to conclude.

This year I opted for a sassy mermaid vibe in my gorgeous silk gown with lace detail and sassy slit. Party season is in full swing and this is the perfect statement number for those of you who are feeling extra sassy. Team with velvet heels and a matching red lip. To steal my look visit House of CB for the gown here, and the velvet heels from JustFab here. Happy shopping!

Dazzled Sass

Hello darlings, 

I've been feeling extremely inspired by a recent trip and felt no better way than to express this through a supercalafragisliticwhatevertherestis colourful outfit. I got this jazzy number from Dazzle & Jolt who specialise in the most colourful and sassiest patterned designs you ever did see! Check them out more of their stuff here. I oh so nearly teamed this outfit with a pair of new high heeled ankle boots I recently received, but a last minute change of mind led me to think "f•ck it, who am I kidding right now?" - my feet are still sore AF from London Fashion Week and your girl needed a gat damn break.

I instead decided to team this outfit with a pair of my 'Old Skool' Vans for a classic yet simple finish. If you haven't already then I suggest investing in a pair, they are comfiest pair of shoes I own and will literally suit anybody. Get yours here!

FYI "It's October 3rd", so if you're not planning on watching Mean Girls this evening and sipping on a milkshake then you'll be missing out on being personally victimised by Regina George. Even I can't risk experiencing that kind of FOMO. That is all...

Stay Sassy, xoxo

Bestival Colour Sass

Hello darlings,

To top off this amazing summer I was lucky enough to be invited back to Bestival this year to show off my sassy festival outfits. Freshly located in it's new home Lulworth castle in beautiful Dorset the journey from London was much more straight forward and quicker! 

This years theme was 'The Year of Colour' and we were graced with headliners Dizzee Rascal, A Tribe Called Quest, Rag'N'Bone Man, Danny Brown, The XX, Ray BLK and many more talents.

Now you know I had make the most of my experience so of course I had to opt for glamping as usual. There are a selection of of glamping companies to stay with in the boutique campsite so in light of this years theme 'The Year of Colour' I made a no brainer decision to stay with Podpads. Their range of beautifully coloured accommodation comes in a range of wooden sheds and tipi's to suit various parties and budgets.

Their facilities also include free phone charging, free tea and coffee, dedicated luxury showers, free hair dryers and straighteners in the pamper section, free car parking and more!

If you were keeping up with my Instagram story and Snapchat you would have seen my live video showing you around our gorgeous Luxury Luxpad which came fully decked out with wooden beds, electricity, windows, comfy bedding, pillows and lamps. Now that is what I call the perfect kind of glamping for a Festival Queen! Their staff couldn't have been any friendlier and welcoming throughout my stay. 

Are you planning on going to any festivals next summer and want to feel like a festival Queen? Check out what festivals Podpads will be at and treat yourself to a fun and comfy stay in their colourful boutique village. Highly recommend!

As much as I absolutely love festivals the non stop dancing and fun can start to tire anybody out! This is why I made sure to bring my Vivid Matcha green tea sachets to take daily as part of my get up and get ready routine which I showcased on my Instagram story each day. Their sachets were the perfect tasty addition to my festival essentials, all you need to do is add hot water and voila! (I usually add a teaspoon of honey with mine.)

Why not just have a coffee or an energy a drink you ask? Well here's what's so special about Vivid Matcha green tea: It serves as an energy efficient drink made with natural nutrients and antioxidants sourced from Kagoshima in Japan. It's main purpose is to maintain and boost your mental energy, boost your metabolism, keep you in a good mood due to it encouraging the release of serotonin and dopamine in your body. Not forgetting it contains vitamins that are great for your overall wellbeing. Sounds great right? Get yours here.

This year I really wanted to take pride in my Festival Queen status so I decided to team up with talented Calfornia based designer Marisa Nicole who owns RML Designs. RML Designs which stands for 'Rich Mahogany Life' specialise in the craziest custom rave/festival wear. The custom bra's even came fitted with flashing LED lights because you know I just had to be EXTRA AF. Shop their products here.

Bestival you were amazing for my second year in a row (despite the weather), I fully approve of your beautiful new home and I'm already missing being in the field dancing the night away covered in glitter. I'm slightly saddened by the fact that festival season is now official over but I'm already looking forward to doing it all again next year! If you missed out this year I hope you enjoyed watching my daily adventures across my channels.

P.s. Mother nature - next year can you please hold off on the rain? Mud is not sassy and my outfits are. Cheers darling.

Stay Sassy, xoxo
