Stylish, artistic, clever. No unfortunately I’m not talking about myself. These are the words i’d use to define designer Boky Lees current ‘Mirage’ Collection.
This colourful jewellery range varies from brooch kits to high trend chokers.
Each scaffolding inspired creation allows its wearer to customise the design using the pipes and interchangeable connection parts.
You can add your own creative flare, using a combination of colours to compliment many different outfits making these pieces both stylish and rewearable.
One of my personal favourites, the mien choker kit is an iconic statement piece. One that can be paired perfectly with a stylish athletic, colour clash style or add some edge to a plunge cut LWD for spring.
This quirky range is at the forefront of this seasons colour pop theme and items start at £178.
Unfortunately for us common folk, those sorts of prices are just not feesible. I have therefore scoured the online fashion world to find some Boky Lee inspired cheaper alternatives. There is always a way to be fashionable without breaking the bank right?

Happy St. Paddy’s day my fellow Irish men and women!
A day that commemorates Saint Patrick and the arrival of Christianity in Ireland.
Did you know that Saint Patrick’s day is celebrated in more countries than any other National day? Pretty cool huh, especially for such a small country.
I’m Irish of descent, yet i’ve still never managed to actually get myself to Ireland. Sorry excuse for a person I know.
Have no fear, I’m 100% heading to the green country this summer for a weekend. I’m just not sure where yet, any ideas?
Anyway wherever you are, lets celebrate the heritage and culture of this beautiful country. A culture of friendly, family orientated people who love a good drink. (Me included).
Grab yourself a Guinness, dress up in something green and cheers with a stranger.
You never know, you might just find your soulmate ha.
So you turn to your manager in the Insurance industry to ask if he would like to attend a Diversity Event, empowering more successful women in the workplace. To which Mr. Manager replies ‘ I don’t see the point in attending something about the equality of women, what is there to discuss? We have women that work here.’
This statement made by a man that authenticates the need and importance for events like the ‘Dive In Festival’ that took place throughout the city of London week.
The four day festival aims to expose the issues that we currently face in the Insurance industry and to tackle the lack of Diversity and Inclusion in the Insurance market head on. Seminars and networking events throughout the covered the topics of gender, race, unconscious bias, LGBT and mental illness.

1. You should avoid Getting holi gulal powder in your eyes. Although I had an unbelievable day at the Holi Festival of Colours on Saturday, I realised I made the mistake many holi colours virgins do, I never came prepared. The idea of the festival and its uniqueness is definitely not one to be missed, The Nervo ladies finished the night with a bang and the atmosphere was incredible.
1. I only eat ‘posh’ fish I have a hatred for fish. From a young age I just couldnt seem to stand the stuff, like literally can’t sit next to people eating it (especially really fishy fish like mackerel or tuna). It isn’t so much the taste but the smell of it really puts me off! I went to Buddha Bar in Knightsbridge this week and the food menu didn’t look to appealing to me. The majority of the list was fish, so I left it to the others to order and expected to stay hungry. To my surprise the food was actually amazing! I had tuna for the first time. I usually want to heave every time I smell it. However this was sliced tuna, it looked like ham and had no smell to it so was bearable for me.
It’s very rare that London hosts anything for free these days, let alone a festival, so when I got wind of the Chingford Weekender, held every year by Waltham Forest Council, it was just something that had to be added to my calendar.
