This is How We Do It

Music / Ramblings

So. I’m flying to Los Angeles tomorrow. TOMORROW. The adventure begins.

This blog post is dedicated to Montell Jordan – This Is How We Do It.

A song that signifies everything about it being friday night, wanting to get down with ya homies and of course, being in LA. (I’m determined to play this as our intro as we hit the club tomorrow night (In LA.. did i mention?)


Safe to say that I’m really ready to get out of this city. It’s raining, cold, work is getting on top of me and I just need space to breathe. It couldn’t come any sooner.

It seems I now actually have an audience- hello everyone! Welcome to the part of the internet that exclusively contains my pointless ramblings.

I’ve been very busy lately. Everything is going GREAT with the magazine ( if you haven’t checked it out already…. Work is good, sometimes I wake up and I really don’t want to go anywhere which is new- but I think it’s just a part of settling in. Full time work is a killer though.

Most nights I just come home and nod off before my friends get home. We’re all working now (yay!) but it means we’re all a lot busier. :(

So I fly out tomorrow and I haven’t packed let alone exchanged my pounds into dolla dolla bill$ yaaaa’lll (another Montell Jordan reference) Instead here I sit in the office pretty much just thinking about all the things I should be doing- without actually doing them.

In other news, I cut my hair! WOO! I reckon a few months now and it’ll be my ideal. Nearly all of the color has grown out.

It’s going a bit wild though…

bruh See this? It’s the face of exhaustion. I AM EXHAUSTED.



Aaaanyway. I need to make like I’m at least doing something productive, like actual work, seeing as I am- at work- y’know…

Oh and, You’re welcome: * apologies for the creepy photo, close your eyes and vibe with it.

Peace & Love and all dat stuuuhhff

This City

comments 2

I love this city. I love everything about it. I love who I am spending my time with and I love who I am sharing my experiences with. Sometimes I take it for granted, but I am fat with love.


Sat by the river with B this evening. Life is good.

Peace and love and all that stuff

Hello again (Late Upload)

Well. I’m currently nursing a hangover at work- my fault, obviously.

Went to the Nike Women Colour Block launch at 198 last night. It was sponsored by patrón, need I say more?

So fancy.

It was a nice night all around though. Good conversations and lots of free alcohol (and canapés, let’s not forget about those)

It’s like we planned the Afros haha.

In other news. Life is going well but I need a holiday. LA can’t come any sooner.

Feeling better now. I need to be up for work early tomorrow so I’ll make this quick.

Watching Alice in Wonderland to send me off to sleep. Not the cartoon version though, the really trippy newer version. It’s quite weird actually :S

Aaaanyway. Today I pigged out on nandos and I’m still full. Indulging in camomile tea to send me to the land of sleep. Hopefully I don’t see any smiling cheshire cats in my dreams.

Watched the BET awards today. Especially liked the celebration of some of the greats, Lionel Richie, James Brown and Maya Angelou to name a few. Chilled with H too and feel back to myself again. <3

Hot water bottle is ready now. God, I’m such an old woman… Hopefully my posts will become more interesting when I get back to work tomorrow.

Oooh, and check out some snaps from the art fair I went to this weekend with B.

Peace and loooove and all that stuff.



It’s 8am.

It’s 8am and I have to be up for work in, well, now. But I’ve woken up feeling like utter shit so I’ll be working from home today.

You’d think this was a bonus but if you’re genuinely feeling ill, not just fake ill like most people tell their employers, then you actually don’t feel like doing any work at all.

ICYMI- last night’s sunset was beautiful


My body still hurts all over. What is going on with me? I remember “sick days” when you were a kid, they were so fun.

This springs to mind:


Oh those were the days…

For now- I’m headed back to sleep. Up later to do some work *yay*

Peace and Love and all that stuff.

I’ve moved.

4ormat was a terrible platform for a personal blog, I’ve realised. (After paying for it, like an idiot.)

So. Here I am- Hello WordPress. Hopefully you’ll welcome me with open arms.


Here’s a cool photo of something I saw today:

It’s by Kaws, a NY based artist who also happens to be favoured by one of my favourite people.

Here’s some more:

Very cool giant cartoon dude. (looking kind of sad)

They remind me of characters from Sonic the Hedgehog. :)

This was at the Frieze London Art Fair. Very fun. Nice way to spend your Saturday.

Oh- not forgetting Sushi. Always a bonus.

Now I’m hungry again. Except its 1am and I have work in the morning.

I’ll post again tomorrow. Seeing as depite being incredibly busy I can’t quite seem to get off the internet. I like it here.

Peace and Love and all that stuff. x
