Dream Closet ft MakeSpace

Monday, 25 July 2016

We have all had those dreams, when we were younger of what we wanted our own apartments/homes/closets would be like and now that I am getting older, I keep thinking more and more about it,financially speaking of course.

Also, i'm sure we have all walked into a store and thought
"This is how I want my closet to be like."

For me, this is with Urban Outfitters. Every time I walk in to any of their stores in UK, US...etc , I just love the rustic, urban, street vibes that they incorporate in each shop.
Here is a prime example of some of their stores around the globe;

But If I had to choose now of what would be like, this is how it be;

I love the idea of clothes hung up on metal racks and shoes placed on wooden shelves, for the reason that it makes me feel like i'm living in a loft in Brooklyn, New York

Another thing I could add to my dream closet is a chill out space, with bean bags, small tv and stereo, so you could chill out, while you are thinking about what to wear next.

Here are a few of my must haves for my wardrobe;

Jackets : Denim Jacket and Varsity Jacket
Trousers: Mom Jeams, Plain Skinnys and Leather Trousers
Skirts: Leather Skirt, Pencil Skirt and Maxi Skirt
Tops: Plaid Shirt, 90s Inpired T-shirts, Tribal Tank Tops
Dresses/Jumpsuits: Maxi Dress, Tribal Jumpsuit or Romper
Shoes: Timberlands, Converse, Vans, Sandals, Chunky Heels
Bags : Backpacks; Denim and Leather, Tribal Clutch

But in order for me to get my dream closet, I have be able to maintain the one I already have!
Luckily with MakeSpace, they can help with sorting your belongings, while you find the right space.

This is how it works;

They will be opening soon in BostonPhiladelphia, San Francisco,  North Virginia and Maryland.

My message to you 

To finish off this short post I want to say this;
 I strongly believe that in life you get to point where you can love yourself for all your flaws and be proud of what you can do. Having this mentality will allow you to share this with someone who loves you for you, even if its family and significant other.

So this song by J. Cole puts things in perspective for me and that our lives are the most important thing and we should live our lives in the best possible way by Loving ourselves and our family & friends, do good to other people and have faith in God/ Allah!

Here are a few quotes I will leave you with and his video for Love Yourz.

"No such thing is  as a life that's better than yours."

"For what's money without happiness?Or hard times without the people you love.

Though I'm not sure what's 'bout to happen nextI asked for strength from the Lord up above"

Wireless Festival 2016 Experience

Sunday, 10 July 2016

This year I was having such a hard time deciding on which concert I wanted to attend. There was Beyonce's Formation World Tour, Rihanna Anti Tour and Wireless Festival.

I thought the best thing to do was to wait a few months, just to see what would happen until the summertime. Luckily The Weeknd dropped out of Rihanna's Tour. which meant that tour was crossed off my list and I was left with Beyonce's and Wireless Festival. I went back and forth deciding and ended up attending Wireless Festival for a day. I just thought that I am paying the same price to see 7x People, than to see 1x person. 

So on Saturday morning, the day 2nd day of Wireless Festival, me and my cousin woke up at 7AM to go to Finsbury Park at 8AM and wait until they open gates, just so we could stand at the front.  When we arrived, there wasn't too many people. But at as the hours went by, more and more and more people began to arrive and when the gates opened at 11AM, there was extreme rush to the stage and we did our best get the best spot. 

Unfortunately, we managed to get the front of the main stage. But we were very close to a crane with a camera at the end. This meant most of my pictures would have to be head shots or somewhat blocked with the camera/crane. 
(Please excuse the crane/camera in some of my pictures)
