Makeup Mondaze - Emoji Face





Using emojis has become a language in itself. You send a heart to express your love for someone or something, you send a kiss to smooch someone and we all know what the aubergine means. 

So I decided it was time to stick emojis on my FACE since that's how I express myself most of the time on social media.

I love playing around with glitter and stickers, especially during festival season. 

You can get these from ebay here

Pineapple Party: VEGAN LEATHER MADE FROM PINEAPPLES




O M G !

In case you haven't noticed already I am totally pineapple crazed. They're just the best thing in the whole World. Their beauty inside and out never seizes to amaze me every single time I see one in the flesh. Any pineapple print and I go weak at the knees. From pineapple stationary to an oven glove, you get my jist!

So anyway the moment the news popped up on my Facebook feed that vegan leather can now be made from pineapples I freaked! I was like YOU SEEEEEE they're the best thing in the whole wide World. I love wearing leather don't get me wrong but this is just the coolest alternative to wearing leather without having a guilty conscience and also not having to sweat in PVC for the already turned vegan fashionistas. 

From what I gather, the cruelty-free alternative is made from the fibres found in pineapple leaves, making it bio-degradable. The best would be if everything made from this amazing invention also comes with the smell of pineapples. 

 I'd trade my All Saints leather jacket in for a vegan one made from PINEAPPLES any day! 

I'm sold!

Piñatex all the way!

Silver Rings, Silver Chokers: Current Jewellery Favourites






I go through phases of being a gold and silver girl. Anyone else? Sometimes I even mix them up! SIN I hear you say?! I just like the pirate look ok?! Haha. No but seriously, the winter time is usually when I wear my silver the most, since my hands are lovely and pale when it's cold (not!) and look better with cool tones aka. SILVER!

I thought I would share some of my current favourites since I get a fair few questions about where they're all from. I am in love with all my jewels of course but these are the rings that I've been reaching for the most in my morning getting ready daze.

Bare with me as they all have stories ! 

From the top left:

1. I bought this at a flea market for €2 in Cologne when I was visiting my boyfriend when we both lived in Germany on our Erasmus year. Total bargain and I don't know why but  I feel a bit witchy when I wear it. In a good way.


2. This is one of my all time favourite rings. I wear it on my left thumb. It's from my friends' jewellery brand: Gypsy East Jewels. It's the first time I spotted labrodite crystal. Now it's something that stands out to me all the time when I walk into crystal shops.

3. Again, this was bought at Mauermark Fleamarket in Berlin (where I lived and half of me is from, which half I'm not sure haha funny joke Mena !)
If you're ever in Berlin on a Sunday please go to Mauerpark. You won't be disappointed. There's so much food, jewellery, clothes, quirkiness and entertainment including Kareoke!
**This is not only a beautiful statement piece of jewellery hand made by an amazing jeweller but also created as part of a collection in loving memory of Jacquline Boulton where £15 will be donated to a mental illness charity. You can read more about it on the page if you click the link.

From the bottom left:

4. This was kindly given to me on my last birthday by two of my bessies. It's from Oliver Bonas and Still available to buy online here

5, 6 & 7. Are all from a boutique shop in Ibiza bought over the last few years. I love little gems on delicate silver bands although I am kind of also a lover of chunky. Depends on my mood entirely :)

The last two choker necklaces were recently very kindly sent to me by the coolest Instagram brand. I can't wait to wear my Sassy Cult chokers! They're totally fun and festival vibes.

What are you favourite rings? I'd love to see.

Hula Hooping with Marawa's Majorettes at OnBlackheath Festival


I'm really getting in the mood for summer now. I was going through old footage the other day whilst searching my hard drive for travel pics and came across some footage from my performance at OnBlackheath festival. So I decided to turn the footage into a mini after movie.

Here it is in case you haven't yet watched it.
It was a magical weekend and the best end to an awesome summer!
