FRINGING IN A CORNER

So it's been a while not going to lie I've neglected this blog for a few months and I am actually feeling awful about it. Almost like a 'fake'. How can I put 'blogger' in the bio's of all of my social media platform but not actually do any blogging? URGHHH! Oh well, I'm back…

LOOKING BAD-ASS IN FLORAL – H&M

In todays post I'm sharing the love. In light of the new H&M Autumn Collection Campaign that aims to spotlight strong, fearless and independent woman by questioning femininity and showcasing women who are reclaiming and redefining what it means to be #LadyLike for themselves.

THE RE INVENTION

A couple of months back I introduced you to X Jewellery and showed you my custom bracelet that had me feeling all kinds of nostalgia. For today's post we're taking another look and showing you how I went about reinventing my bracelet by chopping and changing the links.

SMASHBOX

Hello ladies, today's post is all about lips, lips and more LIPS. We're all partial to a big, bright & bold lip in time for Summer. For today's look I've decided to compliment the tan I managed to bag myself whilst out in Egypt and gone for a matte, perfect hot pink using Smashbox's 'Be Legendary'…

TRYING TO GET FIT

Hi guys, today I'm following up my recent video with a little post all about how I'm really trying to get fit and healthy recently. As you guys know, I'm finding it very difficult to lose weight whilst I'm breastfeeding Hana because the CRAVINGS are real. Naturally I've put on a bit of weight during…

MUMMY FAVOURITES

Hi guys, I recently shared with you my 'mummy favourites' on my youtube channel that you can watch below. Naturally after filming comes a little 'selfie sesh' for the blog. Below you can see a pose and another, along with my makeup details for this look!

CHAOS IN CORNWALL

If you've been following my blogs for a while, you'll know that granny Judy lives in Cornwall, Bude & I do enjoy visiting from time to time. Since having Hana, 4 & a half months ago, I'm craving a break. Since I'm too chicken to get on a plane with her yet, this is the…

SOFT PINK GLAM

It's valentines day this Sunday and the only way I'm celebrating is by trying out a soft pink makeup look. Unfortunately me and Sid are soooo far from romantic, our idea of romance is passing the other the remote when it's two inches away from them. Or re heating a cup of tea because we…

DESIGNER ABAYAS, WHAT’S NEW?

It's been circulating ALL of my social media platform feeds ALL week, the news that Dolce & Gabbana's line of abbayas and scarves is set to release October 2016, so it's only polite for me to address it I suppose! I feel like I should be happy, ecstatic even, perhaps eternally grateful? That's what seems to be the general reaction to this news so far. But, I can't help but feel incredibly underwhelmed, possibly even a tiny bit insulted by the collection.

LEVIS VINTAGE

Ignore my socket plug things, this is me using my wall for outfit pictures when it's too dark and rainy to take them outside. UK bloggers you know what it's like. Onto outfit details, 'those levis that give you thighs' is what comes to mind. Not that I needed anymore thighs, however I've been waiting to wear these high waist levis vintage jeans ever since getting pregnant and my bump arrival.

TOM FORD

Tom Ford BEAUTY were kind enough to send me some new products to try and review for you, and of course I snapped up the chance because A) Tom Ford and B) MAKE UP YAY. All in all the 'extreme mascara', the 'eye defining pen', nail lacquer in 'bordeaux lust', the 'brow sculpting kit' & the 'violet fatale' lip colour. Of course I had a little play around with everything, set my camera on self timer

WATERFALL

DIY This look's all about that tweedy waterfall waistcoat we made together in my most recent youtube video. In case you missed it, I'll stick it down the bottom of this post so you can find out how to make your own.

MILKSHAKE

How'd you like pink? I like it, I like it A LOT. Especially when it's dusted pink, in fact dusted anything I love. I also love these textured HM scarves I can't seem to stop wearing, btw they've just released a new maroon/copper colour (I'll be posting a look with it soon obvs).

THE CLOTHING LINE

February 2015 I launched my debut clothing collection 'Dina Torkia' now sold out Hamdulilah. I spent a year working on with my husband Sid, back and forth to indonesia monitoring the manufactering process and working on the media for the launch of the collection.  I've just come across some BTS shots that Alessia Gammaorta (photographer…

POSTNATAL BLUES

I've come across the term 'postnatal depression' also known as 'postpartum depression' so many times, and more during my pregnancy than ever. Skimming through various info snippets here and there on all the pregnancy and maternity websites that I found myself glued to on most nights during my third trimester! Never really giving it much thought,…

A while back I filmed and put together a little DIY tutorial on how to make a basic maxi kaftan kimono for beginners. A very basic & hopefully easy step by step guide on making this super versatile wardrobe staple to add to your wardrobe! Below you can see me styling mine..

STYLE THE BUMP | BACK IN BUSINESS

I'm back! Okay that was a short sentence, in case you hadn't noticed I haven't posted on my blog for MONTHS now. Basically, MONTHS ago I closed it down in the hopes of bringing it back with a fresh look a couple of weeks later.. that then turned into several weeks, which turned to a month and then the most part of a year! In between all of that, I fell pregnant and forgot about it completely!
