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. The results Have been incredible! I could literally notice a difference after my first session. 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!

Straight up Sass

Hey darling's, 

Wanna know my first step to being sassy? STOP over thinking your outfits! I know that may sound easier said than done, but the majority of the time all I will do is decide on the type of look I am going for dependant on where/what I'm going to and put together some pieces in my head. Nine times out of ten this is usually my method of styling an outfit rather than standing around all of my clothes and having to decided there and then what I'm after. Once I have an idea of what look I'm going for in my head it's much easier for me to head over to my wardrobe and pick out an outfit.

So I've had this T-shirt dress from Pretty Little Thing just sitting in my wardrobe for months now because admittedly I had slightly forgotten I had it! I decided to wear it to the London Lifestyle Awards shortlist event at Mahiki last week so we scheduled a shoot before the event began. If you haven't already check out my post featuring the event here.

As you can tell we were extremely lucky with the weather on this day so it was a super fun street shoot with on of my favourite photographers. We started off treating ourselves to some Prosecco before shooting so we could catch up in the sun, anyway I digress. T-Shirt, Ankle Boots, Fluffy jacket, Cat Eye Sunglasses and BAM! Sassy AF. Easy right? Let's slay together!

Stay sassy, xoxo

LFW Bloggers Sass

Hey loves, 

Who else is as excited for the much anticipated London Fashion Week next month as much as I am?!

Last season I had the pleasure of attending an exclusive bloggers breakfast and hangout hosted by the fabulous The Blogger Programme. First of all, starting your day with a delicious breakfast over the most gorgeous table setting, having girly chats with like minded ladies was certainly my definition of #squadgoals.

Not only were we treated to a special breakfast, the morning also consisted of being absolutely spoilt by gifts from gorgeous brands such as Superdry, Public Desire, Nine Lives, and Orelia London to name a few. The duration of the day then went on to transform into an absolute dream where we were treated to a special salon experience getting our hair and nails done by the ultimate glam squad, also being joined by a plethora of brands which were showcasing products from their new lines.

Anyway I'm so ready to get my Sass on for London Fashion Week, just you wait for what's in store ;)

Stay Sassy, xoxo
