Step Out In Style with Femme Luxe

Hey lovelies!

As you know, I've been working with Femme Luxe for a little while now and I absolutely love, love, love their clothing. I feel like they're always super on-trend and their fits are great for curvier figures.

I am obsessed with the new khaki loungewear set - the bottoms are so freaking comfortable and it's the perfect co-ord to chill in style.

The emerald dress is also a favourite of mine as I rarely ever wear green but I love this rich, classy shade. As for the nude option, it just screams Kim K vibes and I'm all the way here for it!

Let me know what you think! xoxo

'Tis the Season to Slay! (FemmeLuxe Collab)

Hey lovelies!

I hope you're all in great festive spirits and either munching on some mince pies (I hate them) or sipping something anything alcoholic.

December is always a month I look forward to since I'm a Christmas Eve baby, so it should be the littest month for me, essentially. 

When I got these beauties from FemmeLuxe I was so pleased, once again, with the fit and quality of the clothing. I definitely think FemmeLuxe is the perfect place for you ladies to shop at for all your cute gear this Christmas as it's so affordable yet so trendy.

Do let me know if you've picked up some cute things from there and show me pics!


Satin printed Shirt Dress - very Versace-esque!

Gorgeous slinky midi-length Bodycon Dress - lovely neutral for the season.

Cosy Oversized Cropped Sweatshirt with Faux Leather Leggings - very much on trend, I've seen literally everyyyy influencer rock a pair of leggings like these for this season.

Winter Neutrals with Femme Luxe

Hey lovelies!

I hope all of you are keeping well and didn't miss me too much ;)

This year has been challenging for many personal reasons but also a year filled with a lot of personal growth and self-development. As I've been taking a few trips to Switzerland to clear my mind and relax, I decided as I'm back in London it would be great to get back into the blogging scene. What better way than to start with a collaboration with the amazing Femme Luxe.

I feel like I've been out the blogging game for a little while so I wasn't sure how I'd feel but as soon as I tried these babies on, I just loved the concept of dressing up and it helped that I was genuinely impressed with the clothing I received. Not only do I feel the pieces are good quality but they also are very much on-trend with the neutrals theme this Winter.

Also, being completely honest, I am always a little bit anxious to venture out and try clothing from new brands due to my shape and wondering if the pieces would fit my size 16 frame in a good way. However, I was really surprised that everything fitted me amazingly as I went for both oversized/tight looks.

Ladies, do let me know what you think of the below looks and let me know if you try out any pieces from Femme Luxe yourselves as I would highly recommend if you're looking for affordable, stylish, Instagrammable looks <3

Lovely figure-hugging cream jumper, perfect for teaming with leggings or cycle shorts for a night out.

Gorgeous flowy black satin dress which I felt looked so expensive in person.

Simple but flattering oversized sweat mini-dress.

Comfy, stretchy black loungewear co-ord which hugged my curves perfectly.

Goodbye London, Hello Switzerland!


For the last couple of weeks I've been exploring Switzerland!

This break really has taught me a lot about myself and the way we have become such a materialistic society - sure it's nice to have nice things but the most important lesson in life is to re-connect with parents and all thanks to the Lord, I have been given this chance to take a break from life and re-charge my batteries.

Sometimes we get so caught up with London life (bills, bills, bills) that we all need time to take a step back and re-evaluate what is important to us in life. This break has taught me more than ever who my best friends are, who I can rely on and what kind of direction I want my life to lead. I am grateful to my father for allowing me to stay with him and whilst on this break, I've been doing more and more writing, reading and going for walks by the jaw-dropping lake.

The fresh air and peaceful way of living here has taught me one of two things: 1) We all should look after our environment more! London has a lot to learn when it comes to sustainability as recycling is taken very seriously here - outside the biggest supermarket chains (Migros, for one) you will see clearly-labelled areas to dispense your plastics. It's so inspiring to see the way people live here - the streets are spotless and everyone is healthy and active. Sometimes London life makes us sluggish but here, I have learnt it's so important to go out and appreciate God's gifts no matter where you are in the world.

Self-care has a different meaning for us all - as an "old soul", I tend to gravitate towards lakes and quite places for meditation and reflection. Sometimes, remembering the basics like having a nice hot bath and listening to your favourite tunes (oh, and for me jotting down my thoughts in my diary) is all we need to re-set.

Here are a few pics...

Dress: Pretty Little Thing (I love PLT for their Shape and Curve sections where I can find items that fit my body shape  well).

The Swiss are known for their watches after all!

Postcard-esque scenery (Weggis).

Local street-art - who knows what this means but I live for it!

The Perfect Valentines Gift! : Personalised Elie Beaumont Watch Review

Disclaimer: Item sent for review purposes. All opinions are truthful.

Hey lovelies!

This is an official warning that there is just two weeks left until Valentines Day! Whether or not you think the day is a load of faff, there's a good chance that your other half is still expecting a gift so unless you're willing to deal with the mood swings, you better get on it now...

Fear not! I have the perfect solution to save you from that last-minute gifting panic.

Personally Presented is an online store which specialises in personalised gifts for all ages. The site is packed with gorgeous gift options and the quick and hassle-free personalisation option means that you can add that special touch for your loved one in just a click. I love the idea of adding a personal message on a gift as it automatically transforms the item into a sentimental keepsake.

As I love fashion, I opted for this stunning Elie Beaumont Modern - Vintage Leather Watch in Black with White Dial. The watch itself is timeless and versatile for wear at work or special occasions. I mean, what doesn't black and rose gold go with, right?


My gift was presented in lovely minimalist packaging with an embossed box and a convenient leather pouch to protect my watch when not in use. Can we say #aesthetic?


The turn-around time from order to delivery was ridiculously quick and in just a few days, I received my stunning new watch. The speed was impressive to me as I expected a personalised gift to take a little longer but the service from Personally Presented was exceptional as they kept me up to date with all the dispatch info.

Duh ;)
Overall, I would definitely recommend Personally Presented if you're looking for a Valentines Day gift for your special someone as the options are affordable and I believe that a personalised gift is incredibly unique and meaningful... you can't go wrong! Plus, I have a special discount for you guys: use therebirthoffashion.net-10 at checkout (don't say I don't treat you!) xoxo

Know Cosmetics Review: Flawless Makeup Exists!

Disclaimer: Products sent for review purposes. All opinions are truthful.

Hey everyone! 

I hope you lovelies had an awesome Christmas and New Years! (I'm still waiting on someone to arrive to my flat with an IV detox à la The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills). 

I wanted to share these gorgeous products from Know Cosmetics with you guys... 

Previously available in Sephora (when are we getting a London one pls?), you can now purchase their range in the UK. Overall, the concept of the brand = essential, 'universal' products created to offer makeup fixes/hacks.

Sometimes we just need a little extra help when it comes to our makeup. Perhaps we're in a rush and can't be bothered to put in an hour's worth of effort but still want a flawless finish... this is where Know Cosmetics is a lifesaver! The range also offers items that I like to call the 'foundation products' to a quality makeup look. I don't know about you but I've definitely had days where I've woken up and almost heaved at my dark circles so I can appreciate No Dark Shadows, for instance, and we all know how some good under-eye concealer can take you from hungover af to slay all day. 



My favourite out of the range has to be No Bleeding Lips as this works especially well as a lip liner for all shades to give you that cleaned up look. Moreover, it's perfect for when you can't find the right liner shade for that vampy new liquid lipstick you bought. I can definitely see this becoming a cult product in my collection.

No Thin Lips is also good product for adding some volume to your lips. I've used plumpers in the past and thankfully, the sting on this one is very manageable which is a pro. What I love about this product too is that it doesn't leave your lips feeling sticky but rather moisturised and hydrated.

No Bare Brows is a universal brow pencil with two sides - a dark side to fill in and a white side to highlight/clean up. It also comes with a sharpener cap & brush cap. I think this is the product I would use the least as I prefer creams/pomades but nevertheless, it's still a handy duo pencil to carry in your handbag and it's less faffing around.

Have you tried Know Cosmetics? Let me know what you think! xoxo
