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

It’s that time of year again when I can venture to the back of my wardrobe and pull out my FAVOURITE COAT EVERRRR… and then layer it on top of literally every single outfit I wear 😂 – I’m never letting this coat go, I swear.
This season is of course all about those autumn colours and neutral tones, but also about mixing and matching different textures and fabrics in similar shades. I’m loving ribbed knits for the cooler weather, and this wrap-front jumper from New Look is so versatile. I paired it with this suede midi skirt and some gorgeous lace-up heels, both from Missguided 🙂
Jumper: New Look
Suede Skirt: Missguided
This afternoon I attended a fashion event in central London, so want to look smart but also as the sun is shining I wanted to wear something summery!
First of all, to say I love my new heels is an understatement… I want to say a MASSIVE thank you to Ego Official for these lace-up beauties with such a unique honeycomb design 😍 !!
I’m a big fan of pastel shades at the moment, and these tailored trousers really caught my eye, because they’re not quite lilac or grey, they’re a mix of both colours… I paired it with a ribbed crop and a sleeveless trench – I love the suede look and feel of this jacket!

I want to say a big thank you to Australian-based ModelCo Cosmetics for sending me over some of their brand new products to try out and review!
Their newly launched product ‘2-in-1 Lash & Line’ is a mascara and liquid eyeliner combined into one product – perfect for when you’re doing your makeup on the go!!
As a model, over the years makeup artists have used lots of different makeup products on me, and you kind of get to know which brands work best for your face… I have often found liquid eyeliners to be either too watery, not thick/dark enough, or it doesn’t last throughout the day and starts to crumble…
So I’m naturally sceptical whenever I try out a new liquid eyeliner, but I have to say that the liquid eyeliner part of the 2-in-1 Lash & Line is the perfect consistency and it’s also very durable, so stays on your eyes all day without it drying out or smudging!
When trying the mascara part of the 2-in-1 product, I found it really lifted my lashes to make them look so much longer and gave them a natural looking curl. It isn’t too thick and doesn’t cake your lashes like some other mascaras do, but it’s not too thin either – I found that 1 coat is enough for an everyday natural look, but for the evening (photos below) I used 2 coats just to make my eyes look extra-defined 😉
I absolutely LOVE the 2-in-1 Lash & Line, it’s very easy to apply, brilliant quality, and so convenient to have 2 makeup products in 1, so it will definitely become a staple in my makeup bag from now on!

Skort Plunge Playsuit – RARE London
Lace up heels – Public Desire
Statement Necklace – Statement Wardrobe
If you’re looking for that stand out piece this summer, look no further than this gorgeous skort playsuit from RARE London! It has a tailored fit, so hugs all curves perfectly and the plunging neckline is so sophisticated 😍 For this shoot the stylist actually pinned the front of the playsuit to create a different look, but it looks just as great when the neckline is left as it is! (See below photo). Also The playsuit looks slightly red in these photos, but it’s actually a bright reddy-orange colour that’s really eye catching and perfect to take on holiday!

EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE so I’m off to Egypt tomorrow 😁🙌☀️🌴 so excited it’s unreal!!!! My suitcase is all packed and ready for the morning, and of course I had to pack this stunning ruche dress from AX Paris 😍👌 Not only is it khaki (my fave colour at the moment obvs) but the high neckline and tight fit is really slimming but emphasises those curves at the same time 😉
This series was shot on a rooftop in St. Paul’s overlooking breathtaking views of the city as the sun went down… All credit goes to the amazing @The.Banker – bloggers/models go give him a follow on Instagram!

I am so obsessed with these heels from Public Desire!! They are all this seasons trends rolled into one; lace ups, cut outs & knee high length – perfect for spring! For this shoot we did two looks by just changing the coat from my favourite Missguided camel coat to a gorgeous nude furry jacket from PLT to keep in with the neutral colour scheme of this outfit 🙂

This season is all about the lightweight jacket, and waterfall coats are a perfect finish to any outfit – (I want one in every colour!) This coat is from AX Paris, and adds such a classy feel to a very casual look such as ripped boyfriend jeans and a crop top 🙂 …I loved shooting in Knightsbridge as it was such a beautiful location, and of course working with one of my favourite photographers @The.Banker is always a pleasure! I would definitely recommend for fashion bloggers to work with him, as his work is stunning 🙂

Spring is definitely here, so that means lots of pastel colours! One of my spring essentials is definitely the lightweight coat/jacket… This pastel blue beauty courtesy of Miss Selfridge is only £59 – I paired mine with a basic vest top, ripped jeans and strappy heels, but it also looks great with a midi dress or a two-piece for a classy evening look! I also fell in love with this chain strap bag from New Look – the floral embroidery detail is perfect for spring 🙂

Last night I was invited to a showcase at Proud London celebrating the work and life of legendary fashion designer Alexander McQueen… I had an amazing night with some amazing people, and saw such beautiful artwork! I wore my comfy suede pointy flats on the train journey up to London and then changed into my lace-up heels – there’s no way I could’ve rushed around the underground in heels!! I kept my outfit simple with a khaki ribbed midi dress and my favourite camel coat (I swear I wear this coat everyday lol…it just compliments every outfit!) 😉
