Wow how are we two months into 2017 already?! The last few months have been an absolute whirlwind! Usually January is quite quiet for modelling work as it’s straight after Christmas, but it has been non-stop! I’ve been so lucky to work with some amazing brands, inspiring designers, and talented makeup artists
& photographers.. and I can’t wait to show you guys what we’ve been working on!
I do have to apologise that I haven’t been able to blog for so long (October 2016…OOPS!) as modelling work has just taken over my diary so far this year. But I am going to ensure that I make more time for blogging this year, as I’m always getting messages on my Instagram and other social medias asking where my outfits are from, and I love being able to share my work and outfit details with you all 🙂

I’m actually obsessed with absolutely EVERYTHING on www.OhPolly.Com! Their pieces are so figure flattering, and are all double-lined and made of thick jersey fabric… (so say goodbye to those pesky VPLs and chuck out those thin leggings that go see-through!!)
I have always loved high-waisted leggings as I feel they accentuate your natural curves, and this pair are not only stretchy, but they hold you in at the waist too 😉 I would wear this as a casual outfit as above, or glammed up with a pair of strappy heels and a smart jacket or flowy trench coat for a night on the town 🙂

Wow what a whirlwind 2016 has been so far! This year has flown by so quickly and I can’t believe the amazing opportunities I’ve been lucky enough to experience 🙂
I have been busy with modelling (and some acting work 🙊) so I haven’t had any time to post on my blog since March! This is terrible of me to leave it so long, especially as I love blogging… so I promise I will be posting more regularly – both fashion blogging and updates on my modelling work 🙂
If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know that I do a lot of Asian modelling work… I love doing e-commerce and beauty shoots also, but my favourite jobs are always the Asian style shoots! I love getting dressed up in such beautifully embellished outfits with the SPARKLIEST jewellery and accessories, and the makeup is always absolutely stunning!
Last week I was lucky enough to work with the world’s leading Asian wedding publication; Asiana Magazine for their Autumn/Winter issue. Here’s some behind the scenes snaps – I can’t wait until the campaign is out in the shops!
Here’s some more campaign shoots I’ve been working on recently 🙂 x

So I met up with my fave @The.Banker in London last week as we had some meetings to go to, but of course we found some time to shoot!!
I’m loving the relaxed sports luxe style that can be seen all over the high street this season, and this satin bomber from MissPap is everrrryyyythinggg 😍 Anyone who knows me is already aware how obsessed I am with neutral colours, and I love the casual style of this jacket and how easy it is to put with anything in my wardrobe!

With Spring approaching I’m so obsessed with fresh neutral tones, and even though it’s still FREEEEEZING out here… it’s NEVER too cold for a midi dress!! This beauty from MissPap is such a staple for your wardrobe, and can be dressed up or down for either a glam or more casual look 🙂

It’s no secret that at the moment I have a slight obsession with suede – and this long line coat from PLT is not only versatile, but is so warm too! It’s the perfect Autumn cover up and layers beautifully over a chunky knit like this one, that can be worn as a mini dress or even as a long top over a pair of jeans 🙂

A good wrap dress is always a staple in my wardrobe, and this burgundy beaut from MissPap has got to be my new fave 🙊 Complete with ruching detail and batwing style long sleeves, it’s the perfect party dress for Autumn/Winter!

I am loving all of these Autumn colours out on the high street at the moment! Rust orange is giving me liiiiiiiife right now, and this suede sleeveless trench jacket from RARE London is goes perfectly on top of any outfit – jeans, leggings, a midi dress, etc, and hugs your figure perfectly!
