The Social Geek to attend the Holi Festival of Colour. She had booked a makeup tutorial session with Illamasqua on one of days and thought to myself "what am I gonna do with myself during those period." Prior to this I had no love whatsoever for beauty and makeup. I was just used to my usual foundation, eyeliner, mascara and lippy routine and didn't think of broaden my horizon. However I went in with her, being the good friend that I am (I'm looking at you Shabs) and watching her being taught all these tips and tricks on how to beautify her face even more really awoken the beauty goddess in me. Not long till we got back had I spent over £100 on make-up which I blamed her for of course. I try to experiment over the weekend when I don't have to venture outside with few tips and tricks I've been learning over the web. I'm a long way away from being a 'beautygeek' but my love for beauty grows day by day (and so does by Pinterest board).

OMG guys LOOK! I'm wearing trousers/pants. Scroll through my outfits and you will find not one look of me wearing trousers. I'm always in either in a skirt or dress and the occasional shorts once in a while. On 'non-outfit post' days is no different either. I have a total of about 5 pairs of jeans and trousers. Its not that I don't like them, its just for me it is so damn hard to find the right pair that fit me. I'm a UK 10 on the waist and 12 on the thighs and since they don't come ins those sizes, I just give up on looking for them. Once in a blue moon I come across one that fits me well to which I sing my praises to the brand.

I love reading about fashion collaborations – the potential of two or more brands coming together and creating exciting and innovative pieces really get me excited. The Vans X Della collaboration is even more exciting for me because one of the brands is from my home country Ghana. Vans, I’m sure you’ve all heard off. Della is a socially-responsible LA-based company employing more than 50 women in the developing villages of Ghana, West Africa. They started off originally creating accessories and then branched off into clothing. Della specialises in handcrafted, one-of-a-kind textiles made with sustainable materials from the Volta Region of Ghana and every purchase of a Della product helps provide jobs, skills training, weekly literacy classes etc. to the over 50 women employed in Ghana.

The last time I went clothes shopping was Boxing Day last year and since then have given myself a no shopping ban for 6 months. I've been really good but of course it doesn't help when I keep getting newsletters from various stores and brands with tantalising deals, discounts and new products. Its even worse when they make the emails more personal and not a generic one. One click leads me straight to their website and then its soo damn hard to leave. I recently found myself on George, a clothing and footwear brand owned by British supermarket chain Asda. If my memory serves me right, you can also find the George brand in some Walmart stores across the globe. I shop there quite often and my last purchase was the top and skirt from this look.

Look last week, and went to Uncle Google to find out more. The shirt-skirt as it called is basically wearing your long sleeved button shirt as a skirt. You can also try it with short sleeves but adding a belt to secure the waist. Whoever started this is quite frankly a genius and should be awarded. I for one I'm going to give this a try and see how I get on. Is this something you will be wearing? If so I would love to see them so comment below with your links or tweet me.
