We Are Festival: Epic Sunday!

What a special bank holiday weekend.. And We Are Festival in Upminster on Sunday absolutely smashed it!

What at a great start to the festival season. I saw my all time love, Mr. Steve Angello, alongside many other house DJs that brought a whole day of music greatness.

The vibe was great, the day was hot, and I made lots of new and like minded festival going friends. Winning!

It’s a shame about the weather today, but I don’t really care as much now I’m back to work and sitting in an office ha.

Heres a few pics from my epic Sunday!

Kylie Jenner colour braids

Absolutely loving this look that Kylie Jenner rocked to Coachella on the weekend.

I daren’t say i would dye my hair all those colours, but it’s definitely gave me an idea for festival hair this summer… Chalk hair paint anyone?? 

I’m gonna grab these non-toxic ones I found, under a fiver too, winning! 

I can’t say I was a fan of the fashion attire though. Oh god that jacket.. Bit too oversized for me.

 
What were your thoughts on the outfit?

Affordable Fashion: Boky Lee Inspired

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.

 

Boky Lee gold Bracelet

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?

Colour tattoo chokers from etsy.com


You can’t customise these, but at 99p per piece you can buy the whole collection for under £10!

Check out this cute multicolour choker from Claires for just £5

This blue necklace if a similar shape is on £7.99 from New Look

For the same look but more comfortable wear, grab yourself one of these satin chokers from ebay. They come in 25 different colours!

This fab block bracelet from Amazon will turn any simple outfit into a striking ensemble.

Affordable but on trend fashion, now that’s what we love!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! 

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.

‘Why developing women leaders is critical to our success’

Dive In Festival for Insurance

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.

I attended two events on Tuesday that focused on ‘Why developing women leaders is critical to our success’. Continue reading “‘Why developing women leaders is critical to our success’”

3 things I learnt last week…

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.

3 things I learnt last week..

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.

But first, let me take a selfie..

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.
