The actual struggle it was to take these photos man, British weather will never be your friend, trust me! But anyway, the shearling coat has to be one of my favourites to rock at winter, it’s a timeless piece and I don’t see it ever going out of style.
Off topic but, I watched Black Panther last week and I absolutely LOVED it! Seeing it again this week.

First of all, Happy New Year?
So the big question is where have I been? Well after 10 months of opening and running my graphic design business, things have been going great, yes there have been ups and downs but overall it’s been a really good experience and life is all about learning and growing at the end of the day. But for the longest I’ve always wanted to expand it beyond graphic design though, to clothing more specifically. I mean, I’ve always had a love for style, wanted to be a fashion designer or work in the fashion industry doing some type of design. Learnt how to sew and took up textiles in school and learnt about the technical side of garment making. Seeing as I have a blog associated with said topic and have design experience, why not?
So My goal for 2018 is to expand my business and grow my blog even further.
Start small, work your way up!

Happy Friday! Excuse my lack of updates, I’ve been working on getting my business of the ground, and boy it’s no walk in the park! But I’m happier that I’ve ever been. Knowing that I own something and have my own creative vision on how I want my brand to look. Even if everything doesn’t work out, I at least tried on my terms. I mean, there is no harm in trying right? 🙂

Grey is one of the best neutral colours that works with any outfit really. It’s a staple colour and I think everyone should at least own something of it in their wardrobe. Also the weather here in the U.K. is grey by default and it’s been a bit cloudy for spring, which is no surprise, meh! Also I have officially started my graphic design business! Eightfold Studios is officially open for business and I couldn’t be more excited!! It’s taken a long time to get here but I’m seriously so happy and optimistic about it. If you really want something in life, just go and get it!! who’s stopping you other than yourself?

Excuse my lack of updates on here, but I’ve been super busy for the past weeks. As I’ve mentioned on my Instagram post I’m in the process of starting my own business. For the longest, It’s something that I’ve always wanted to do so why not? Time waits for no one tbh!
I’ve worked both and graphic design internships and corporate jobs and learnt and gain so much from those experiences but at the same time, deep down, I knew being my own boss was the way for me. I know that setting up a business is never easy and there is a lot that goes into it (especially a graphic design business!) but you just have to work hard, stay humble, make connections and create your own opportunities.
@Eightfold Studios will be launching soon! Please stay tuned!

Sorry for the delayed post, but I’m working on something that is really exciting! For me, it will be a bench mark and change in my life and I can’t wait to share and show the world!
