Writing this post from Lagos, Nigeria where i am spending my Christmas break. Got here like 3 days ago and the weather has been so nice. Its great to be able to escape the horrible cold for at least 2 weeks. Having fun spending the holidays with my family and friends even though i have to write 14,000 words by the 16 Jan for my course.

Love this skirt, was made by our seamstress in Nigeria who is amazing. As soon as we got to Nigeria, my mum called her over to make us some more stuff. I asked her to make a boxing kitten inspired dress and a skirt i saw on A Pair and A Spare. So far I got the boxing kitten inspired dress which i'm wearing tomorrow. Will show you guys soon :)

Its Christmas eve so im off to make some delicious food with my aunty for our Christmas lunch tomorrow! Have a great Christmas day everyone!

Strictly Gershwin.

I planned to put up this post about a month and then totally forgot I never did it. So this morning whilst procrastinating (oh so typical!) I found these hiding in a folder on my desktop. Perfect reason to stop preparing a presentation that is due for monday :-/ ... On to the post:

Over the summer Lola, a super fan of old Hollywood musicals, convinced me and our friend laura to buy tickets for this spectacular show.
Everything was done to perfection from the music to the dancing but the highlight was the costumes. GLITTER EVERYWHERE! It made me want to run home with a stick of crazy glue and a jar of the sparkly stuff.

Lace Dress

This is the second time i've used this background which is in the living room of our house and i love it. It's quite annoying taking pictures in the dark and it gets dark so quickly now so this is perfect. Hope you guys like it :) Had a very dressed down day for lectures and what not. I just love this dress on it own.


This year, I'm actually quite excited for Christmas to come round. I can't wait to see family and friends I've missed. So I've been busy buying Christmas presents and things to take on holiday. While I was in town I found a clearance office shop and decided to go check it out. While i was rooting around the extremely messy shop, I found these Jeffrey Campbell's from last season which I wanted for my 21st but they sold out so quickly. Tried them on with fingers crossed and luckily they were my size. Got them for only £25 so happy times. I shall probably wear them to death.

Have a Lovely week,

Lola xx
