MY LEGO ADDICTION.... Brick me away, I mean blow me away...

Hello everyone???


YASSS I'm back... I find that ''YASSS'' word so funny especially when I say it out loud, if only you was here with me and you heard me saying it, you'd laugh to, well at least I hope you would looool.

Ok so, today's outfit was inspired by my love for Lego, this outfit of the day, is completely playful with a touch of that fun loving trait we can often loose as we get older, my white letter 'sorry not sorry' headband was actually a necklace yep i put it on my head just like that it became an alice-band well sort of, then i made the lego ring!!
Check out the lego ring i made for fashion youtuber here > @memekeeley <


A little while back I decided to take a trip down east london, to view the Lego exhibition in BrickLane and boy did I have fun, besides the obvious fact that Bricklane is another one of my favorite places to visit on my days out in London, as it has amazingly creative Street art/graffiti including a cartoon character theme ‘real’ car with a wrecking ball mashed in it, on top of the building O_o I know right you're probably reading this i'm crazy, like what the heck lol, but BrickLane is full of character, charisma and fantastic art, so no wonder why the Lego exhibition event was located in BrickLane no coincidence in the location name and the Art of Lego Exhibition in the same place...

…. As I walked into the Art Of Brick exhibition I had a severe adrenaline rush I was ready to be blown away I was talking to my myself like, ‘come on show me your best lego creation I wanna be blown away’… because as you may know by now I'm a Lego extremist.

I entered the first room in the event and everyone took a seat to watch a short film about the man behind all the lego creations... Nathan Sawaya, to be honest I watched it for a bit then I could not hold on any longer because my kid instincts started kicking in, so I quickly ran into the Lego artwork room next door… I was completely amazed....
I sincerely appreciated the amount of work that artist Nathan Sawaya, Put into his creative ideas and his immaculate building of the Lego pieces.
However I constantly walked through the exhibition wanting more, I wanted to see things that wasn't obvious things that not everybody would expect to see.. you know like the work of Boywonder if you haven't heard of him now is the time to excite your fashion senses with Lego bricks, yassss bricks and fashion.... Both artist are great and there is no comparison, but when i was in the exhibition I couldn’t help but feel the desire to become apart of the Lego art and we wasn’t allowed to touch (I have real tears) all I remember is every single person from adult to child wanted to touch every single piece of Lego art (of course i respected the fact that it took hours to build and that would be one of the reasons it wasn't supposed to be touched) I mean after all 90 per cent of adults/children played with Lego at some point in their life right? It was unbearable looool ‘Lego extremist here’ seriously I was kind of sad Hahahahaha, ok so back to Boywonder his Lego pieces excite me because I can become one with his art... I CAN wear it, touch it and feel it... is it me or is Lego meant to be felt touched and played with? Sigh

Anyway at the end of the exhibition there was a surprise ‘YOU COULD BUILD YOUR OWN LEGO YASSSSS’ but you couldn't take it with you... (Tears falling again and NO i didn't sneak out the door with any lego bricks OK lol) however I just sat and watch my little bear build his interpretation of really cute mini Lego people lol, it was a fun experience.
Would I go back? Eeerrrrmmm I don’t think so because I would most certainly and unavoidably not be able to beat my temptation of keeping my wondering hands to myself I would so, so, secretly touch at least seven of my favorite Lego pieces but the way how they have hired security guards on every corner of the exhibition yikes, I think that’s a no go lol.
I recommend you visit before it ends as everybody’s interpretation on art is different and its still an amazing stimulating experience…

London Fashion Week A\W2014... the experience was breath taking literally





Listen this day was a whirlwind and I’m just coming to grips with it now o_O flashing camera lights in your face at every turn and one of the most prominent sounds i could hear was, over 50 click click sounds per second, coming from multiple cameras grasping every inch of all the outfits worn at LFW14
I was completely thrilled to be a part of London fashion week 2014…


I didn’t intend on visiting London fashion week this year due to other commitments, but that was all about to change as I found myself designing a coat within hours before day 2 of London Fashion week A/W, yet again I found myself up all night with a 20mintue mental ‘’Manga Style Coat’’ concept, as I made this coat I felt like the manga character, Sara Pezzini I to had hardly ever have a rational explanation for the ‘’normal’’ world, The life of a designer aye.

Seriously once my coat was made all I remember was, running out the door.... sleep what’s sleep? boom camera lights action…. Or more like vogue, vogueeee let your body move for the cameras,sings madonna song at every turn,  looool and I mean at every turn how do celebrities do it? And would you believe I wore a facemask the whole time *dies of oxygen starvation* lol … all in the name of fashion baby lol I felt at home for once, everybody looked so fabulous walking around Somerset house all dressed up to kill.
So many creative outfits was being show cased by the real people of fashion the people from the streets. However I hardly got a chance to take pictures of people and or pictures of the catwalk show i blame my outfit! but i do have mini video footage of the catwalk shows on my >Instagram< >.<


The day was absolutely breathtaking, dear I say breath.. the struggle to breathe was real yo, thanks to my my buddie V with every turn she said ‘’you alright girl, pull the mask off for a sec and take a breath’’,  followed by ‘’I cant understand a word your saying’’ every time i tired to speak lol, damn we never giggled so much before in our life!

The mask wasn’t the only reason why I struggled to breathe, as we constantly got bombared by cameras and photographers, we amazing stumbled across a designer called Larry Tee, I briefly met him at London fashion week last year in 2013 and I instantly became a lover of the brand TZUJI if you don’t know get to know > TZUJI.com
One minute cameras was in my face the next I was in walking an talking to Larry Tee as we entered into his showroom, I was more than overwhelmed, me in a showroom full of larry tee's creations … catch me as I fall to the floor with garments from the TZUJI rail, in my arms ooooowwwwww the collection was called ''Save the human'' how ironic lol! Jokes joke I stood there in the showroom in shock for a minute then started snapping away at the 90/80s inspired Futuristic, colourful, robotic printed garments.


As I floated out of the TZUJI showroom on a fashion high, ahahahahaha boom I was in the Nasir Mazhar catwalk show, the was runway lit up with extremely bright lights and within seconds, POW out walked the coolest rad punked up 90s looking models wearing amazing bold printed brand entitled, ''Nasir Mazhar'' elastic waist/shoulder strap design featuring small fur details on some of the garments, talk about totally getting us ready for A/W with a dash of sporty spice’s character, this was sportsluxe at its best and yes I was still breathing believe it or not…. Imagine this was only day two stay tuned for my next blog post featuring day three at London Fashion Week  2014 SCREAMSSSSSS hint hint colour explosion!!
