Made By Co-Ge X AFiNC Designs

~Hey Everyone!

I'm super excited to share with you the creative talents of Metruth Kaselampo!

Designer/founder of AFiNC Designs and personal friend, she has an eclectic collection of bow ties and pocket squares, that fuse together perfectly the essence of African design and contemporary accessories.

I was lucky enough to be gifted one of her gorgeous 'Auburn Butterfly' bow ties, which finished off perfectly,  the preppy look I was going for this Sunday!

Have a check below at my mini photoshoot, and to find out more, you can find her blog HERE!

Made By Co-Ge Turns 2!

~Hey Everyone!

This is a rather humble birthday post where I just want to express, my joy and gratitude towards all of you loyal readers and followers, for supporting my blog in the past and supporting where I'm taking it in the future!


www.wildrocket.com

After the madness of the first few weeks, since moving back to Leeds, there should be some calm where I can begin to show you things I've slowly been working on and introduce the newest elements of the blog!

Looking forward to this next year with you all!

September Says...

~Hey Everyone!

It seems like ages since I wrote a post on here last! I feel that it's always important to make sure content on here has meaning and isn't just posted for ratings or posting sake. This summer I've had a lot of reflecting to do, in terms of life choices, future goals, ambitions and which direction I hope to take the blog in the next year. Juggling these things in particular has been harder for me this summer than any other and so for the minimal postings, I apologise!

I wanted to do a post today though, on the things this month that I am looking forward to and have enjoyed so far. I find that looking at the whole journey ahead can be daunting and sometimes causes me to run away from the big plan altogether. So, I'm looking at life with a fresh perspective and taking manageable chunks month by month, so that I can look back and see how far I've come without even realising! 

September Loves

  • Seeing all my friends again after a loooooong summer
  • Getting stuck into my uni project based on Identity in Hair
  • Wearing my autumnal coloured pompom earrings and taking them to the next level
  • Collaborating with like minded fashion-orientated individuals
  • MBCG Blog turning 2 on Wednesday!
  • Allowing the Blog to kick off this year with a BANG!

What has everyone else enjoyed/looking forward to this September?

The Pom-Pom Game : Summer Brights

~Hey Everyone!

I'm in the middle of a collaboration right now, which is involving some filming and a photo shoot with my pom pom earrings, but I thought I'd drop a few or my favourite shots for ya! 
Every time I seem to be in London the weather is always funky! Apart from on the day I did this shoot... haha not to worry, I think the shots came out pretty spectacularly, inside, anyhow!

Modelling for us is the fabtastic Charlene, hailing from the Gold Coast, Australia! Model potential 100%...











And with even more colours coming soon!! 

Credits to Courtnee for being an amazing photographer, stylist and all round creative soul!

All New Pom-Pom Earrings : Dusk

~Hey Everyone!

Just giving you a quick update on the new colours that are now featured on my Pom-Pom Earrings!

I'm calling these the 'Dusk' range because they remind me of summer sunsets and lazy evening BBQ's :










I've also been working on some other colours, which you'll see next week!

Birthdays, Banter and Black & White

~Hey Everyone!

Greetings and Salutations guys! I'm not sure why I'm so happy, but I'm not complaining! I think it's the finishing of my first year at Leeds College of Art, the immediate raise in the temperature, and the rediscovered freedom to blog, make and celebrate just being alive!

Yesterday, I attended my friend's birthday and it was such a nice, chilled out and laid back time. Everyone was in high spirits and the weather afforded us the luxury of celebrating in the garden too! Here's a public Happy Birthday, Manny! 

My outfit for the day was pretty relaxed in black and white, with a dash of red lippy and gold accessories.


Black Vest: Matalan
Cigarette Pants: H&M
Crop: Therapy
Shoes: ASOS
Earrings: Accessorize
Necklace: H&M
 After turning up to the house, I saw that Eni was also wearing black and white stripes in the form of a cute sleeveless shirt, so it was fitting that we did a blog post together!!



These have to be the hardest photos I've taken in a while- we were making each other laugh SO much throughout the whole of it, you guys are lucky there are any pictures at all! Banter with this girl is like no other!


How Beautiful is this pic?!?

 I think its time to stop using my phone for taking pictures! Look how crisp this iPhone quality is below!

Eni, Rebekah (wonderful photographer of the day) and I 
Guys, I've really been getting into the natural hair wave recently and have been thinking about doing a few posts that really celebrate some of the amazing styles that I've seen! I'm thinking about doing another giveaway with it also! So, keep your eyes peeled for a competition post!
