Bikini Babe

The summer slowly and sporadically blessed us with glorious weather which have managed to take full advantage of resulting in my glorious tan (woo woo!) and my many insect bites (booo).
Woo woo look at my tan

Despite my adverse feelings towards cold weather I am I will not morn the summer this year because I will be spending my birthday/ Thanks Giving (for my pals from the US) In Cancun baby!
Jamaica 2010 I worked hard on my abs so im showing em off!!

In my refusal to waste money on a summer wardrobe that I wouldn’t get to wear I decided to wait for the summer sales to purchase my holiday wardrobe and do lots of window shopping (And working on my bikini body) before committing to a purchase.

Take a look at some of my picks so far

This is not the 1st time the Paolita swimsuit has graced my blog and I am unapologetic about that because this swimsuit is AWESOME!!

Bikini Brazil according to some of the forums these styles of bikinis are very popular in Cancun, I don’t think I will be brave enough to rock those tiny weenie bottoms though lol!

This Savanna Bikini from Beach Cafe is fierce! I would intend to have more curves than the model

How cute is the corsage detail on this Salinas Rosette Ruffle Bandeau Bikini Set from  Asos

Pineapple print bikini set by Salinas from ASOS

No swimming allowed in this Just Cavalli Sequin Triangle Bikini from Asos, Posing only please

Totally loving the bold and almost tribal print on this River Island Black Paco Cut Out Swim Suit

On 1st sighting this Pouch Over Swimsuit from ASOS seems a little frumpy but it would very handy after a night of drinking and a morning pigging out at the buffet

Heels and a cocktail would be the perfect accessory for this girly halter ruffle bikini

This tassel bikini is so hot that I would even consider rocking the top with some jeans and heels on a night out (Am I too old for that??)

African Fashion Week London 2011

It’s a pity that such a wonderfully creative and productive weekend ended with such ugliness as those crazy riots.

Hoever I was pleased to have attended the first African Fashion Week London which was held at Gibson Hall in London.
Two days of fashion, culture and rubbing shoulders with many of the fashion elite.

Before I even watched on of of the shows I was already bowled over by the beautiful and colourful traditional  prints that the guest were wearing, which of late have been very trendy and could be purchased in various outlets such as ASOS but this was the real deal.

Fashion was defiantly taken seriously at this event!

With over 50 designers showcasing their work me and Ms Tagoe were front row (Most if the time lol) ready to be wowed.
Day 2

And for the most part we were not disappointed.

Due to over subscription of many of the shows unfortunately many guests, press and bloggers were denied entry to many of the shows (Well we still got in shhhh) I have to say this did not shock me as I had previously seen this happen at many of the London Fashion Week shows where they literally turned away hundreds of people. Yes I was pissed to be stuck waiting in heels when I should be ushered to a front row seat with a glass of champagne in my hand but hey I’m willing to suffer for my love of fashion within reason (I’m full of it aren’t I? Lol!)

Here are some of my pics
