All Black Everything

All Black Everything by theupgradeables featuring kohls purses


So recently, my friends and I have been doing this thing whereby we just wear all black just because we can really. So this is a look I just put together which is just quite a casual outfit I could wear to 6th form/school. Is black too dark or is it super sexy? Let me know... :-)

A/W Wishlist 2

A/W Wishlist 2 by theupgradeables featuring h&m coats

I must admit, having a job is not always a good thing because... 
1. You get paid - good thing right? Something wrong, well for me anyway
2. You start to look at things and think hmmm... " I can actually but this"
3. Pay Check comes in - finished on the day. 
Recently I've been feeling like this will be me very soon, so I'm hoping I can find an appropriate way to save my money whiles also being able to afford certain things. If anyone has any tips on how to save money, please let me know because I'm in desperate need of financial help even though I'm usually excellent with my money but now that I'm actually getting and making my own money... That's a whole different story. Help!
Well, I'm going to keep on dreaming for a while before the money comes in so, Enjoy.

Celebrity Style Inspiration: Khloe Kardashian

No Comments »

                              

It seems like quite a while since I've done a CSI (celebrity style inspiration post on here but today I thought, why don't I just blog today?

Now let me just start by saying Khloe Kardashian-Odum is so beautiful. Her style is so effortless yet simple and I'm really loving her hair right now as well. Although Kim is usually everyone's favourite, I'm starting to think Khloe is my favourite although I still really love Kim's style as well.
Anyway of my fan girling over Khloe, take a look at it your self...

New look Wishlist by theupgradeables featuring work boots

So this is my wishlist for New Look. New Look is a store that I've always loved because, it has trendy and comfortable clothing at affordable prices for young people. This month I'm hoping to purchase one of the two boots in my wishlist because it is the PERFECT dupe for the Jeffrey Campbell version which looks almost identical and at such as reasonable price.

So I'm not sure if I've said anything a bout getting a job at Next recently (Christmas temp) but after a long hard search for a job I finally got one. even though it can be quite tiring, I really enjoy is and I don't want it to be over :-(
Although I may not have enough money in my budget (yes I've started to budget my money but I don't think it will really work...) I'm hoping to get a couple of things and I may order a couple of items from shops such as Boohoo, eBay, Missguided etc. Here's my little wishlist if I did have a lot of money to spend. A girl can dream can't she?

Fashion 911 on Radio

No Comments »

            
Hi everyone, I hope everyone is doing well. I have some exciting news to announce that I've been holding onto for a while because things weren't official.
Well, am now apart of radio show and I'm a 'Fashion 911' radio host for that particular segment on a Ghanaian radio show called AmansanFM

I recently just started it so I'm still not quite perfect but I'm trying my best to improve my skills every week. Although, it's a Ghanaian radio show, I speak English on it but I will soon be mixing in a little bit of Twi (native Ghanaian language). Don't worry though, I will always translate what I will be saying.

I will be talking about the latest fashion trends in the industry for both men and women, styling tips for different seasons, issues and concerns about the fashion industry, and any affects of the fashion industry on human nature.

Just visit the website Amansan and press the play button in top right hand corner or i you have the TuneIn app you can just types 'AmansanFM' in the search tool. I hope you can all tune in and listen to me at around 12:30. The show starts at 11 and finishes at 1 so make sure you tune in for some interesting gossip, entertainment, music and fashion.

I will update you about the progress of the show very soon

Hey everyone, hope you're all doing well and you're all feeling good even in this horrible weather. I finally took my camera to get fixed so i should have some OOTD posts up soon and show you how I've been coping with outfits in this cold weather. I will also be doing some OOTD posts of my friend who has allowed me to take some street style pics of her from time to time so that should be interesting.
This is a a mini update through the eyes of Instagram so stay up to date with that if you want.
