NOTTING HILL GATE & OTHER DRUGS

Hello,

I wanna start by thanking Valerie Ejiero for taking this journey of mine on another level. I have to admit, London can be a bit harsh when it comes to finding people that have the same vision as you do. Thankfully, Val followed me all the way to Notting Hill, trying to put into pictures how it really felt to be there. A colorful mind will always give you a colorful life. Well...imagine living in a colorful neighborhood such as the famous Notting Hill. (by the way, if you haven't seen the movie yet.. stop everything and watch it)

I know I said South Kensington is my favorite area in London but Notting Hill is like, ten minutes away so it's kind of the same thing! The coffee shops will steal your eyes and the cute shops your money! (this was a joke haha...)

It's always fun to go and explore the city you live in. If it happens to be London, or if it happens for you to have the chance to come and visit it, you have to go to Notting Hill and stop by my favorite cafe called Farm Girl. Taking the breakfast or brunch there is pure gold. I am not a vegetarian but if you are, you are gonna love it even more. I promise. This was just an extra point, as if this place wasn't good enough!

If you don't believe me, watch this 'behind the scenes' video that Val made for her YouTube channel: https://youtu.be/JaQtPlqu8UA 

It's really interesting to see how everything is actually happening when you're wandering around, taking pictures and tourists are probably thinking you're someone BIG and they stop and stare! Ahaha <3

And if you know me, you know my outfit wasn't going anywhere close to complete without a little pink. Especially cause this area pretty much is, pink! I hope you'll be more inspired after seeing these pictures, our video and my total look overall because we really had fun and we enjoyed ourselves! <3 BIG UP FOR VALERIE!

Wanna see more from London? Make sure you follow me on Instagram (biu_braicu). I post daily on my stories and I do my best to post on the platform as often as I can too! <3

See you soon,

BB

A DIFFERENT CHRISTMAS

Hey guys,

I am writing these words wearing pyjamas, drinking mint tea and staring at the window because it's snowing... <3 I LOVE WINTER! Don't you? I know you do! I've been dreaming about this moment for quite a while now and I'm happy to finally be here, living it. Since last Christmas.. my life took a different turn up, in a good way! I now live in London, I study drama (this isn't knew) and every year I come back here I like to look back on what I have accomplished in the year that has just passed.

It really is the most wonderful time of the year. For me Christmas means family and my family is everything for me. I'm always apart from them and it can be hard but it makes it even more special when we are together. Cherish the moments with your loved ones.. <3 It's Christmas Eve!! What are you gonna wear for Christmas? I recommend this type of outfit for a Christmas dinner in or out with friends or family. It's very comfy and it'll make you feel like a snowflake! I thought it would be nice to wear something else, other than red or green with sequins. This outfit is so so simplistic and easy to achieve.

You might have noticed that I really like to wear faux furs. This fur is from Jakke Ldn and I've been obsessing over it ever since I got it. I love their brand for many reasons but mostly because they're #FreeFromFur. The sweater and the pants are kind of a mix&match from Zara and they're so wintery and cozy that you can pretend to be Winter itself ahahah! Dare to combine colors that may look like they don't go together, they may go very well! Then...add a glimpse of color, like the colorful heeled boots with flowery prints on them. <3

I truly wish you a Merry Christmas with your loved ones, enjoy the little moments!

Happy Holidays,

BB
