I was all set for Autumn and then realised it was going to be 22 degrees this weekend! 😬 Oh well, I'm still trying to get a bit strategic about my shopping and I've shared my experience with @klarna over on the blog. There's also a link to a competition where you could win £500 towards your AW17 wardrobe. Think of all the pastel goodness you could buy! 💕🌸🎀🛍 | AD http://ift.tt/2z6Btzr

Just call me the flower girl. 🌸🌷🌺 Fun fact, at the age of 4 I was the flower girl at my parents wedding. I was in my own world and forgot to follow my mum up the aisle (it's not even like I had social media to distract me). Highlights included stealing my Dad's chicken from his plate and hijacking the stage with the other kids. 😂 #abmautumn http://ift.tt/2gaQmfY

The LFW Staycation - I Want You To Know

Meet the Sofitel London St James, it's a hotel filled with Coco Chanel inspired decor and the best breakfast buffet ever #ad: https://buff.ly/2fRgVmX

There's a new post about that time I pretended I had a Central London postcode thanks to @sofitellondon. Can I wake up here everyday please? 😍 I wore a velvet suit to try and coordinate with the decor, plus I went a little bit overboard at the breakfast buffet. 🍾 #sofitellondon #allthepastries #ad http://ift.tt/2xphB9d

Still in denial about Autumn and the fact that I'll be swapping bare ankles for 100 deniers soon. 😭😭😭 Have you bought much for the new season? To be honest I'm a bit apprehensive about all the high-waisted denim and potentially looking like Simon Cowell. Any tips? 🤔 #dresscolourfully http://ift.tt/2geBry6

Some Things I Realised In My 20s…

This was meant to go live on the morning of my birthday but hey ho, organisation still isn't one of my best points after 30 years on this earth. In my defence, having almost two months to digest everything has actually helped me compose these reflections. Like I mentioned in my Budapest post, at 29 I found myself stressing out about birthday celebrations as well as worrying that I hadn't ticked enough off my vague '30 before 30' list.

So @NIVEA_uk have asked me how I deal with skin issues and to be honest I'm in denial. 😬 I'm always chopping and changing my products, forgetting to drink water and picking the odd spot. Oops. Now I'm 30, I think it's time to start figuring out exactly what it needs. It's overwhelming, so the first thing I'm trying is a daily SPF by way of the NIVEA Q10 day cream. Luckily it doesn't leave a white residue like others I've tried, no one wants to look like a ghost! 😂 #ad #NIVEA #MySkinMyWay #LetsTalkSkin http://ift.tt/2yGBCZV

Oh hello new bedside table! ❤ I got a little bit overexcited when I spotted this at @myhomesense recently, it's exactly what I'd been looking for! There's a few more interior updates over on the blog, plus musings about the perfect pastel chair I left behind. #ad #homesensefinds http://ift.tt/2x8VNDA

How I Figured Out My Interior Style & Updated My Rented Bedroom

With Homesense UK Time for another room refresh! It’s funny, I’ve been trying to rethink the way I shop for clothes for a while but it’s only fairly recently that I’ve started to do the same with homeware. When I lived with my parents, I kept buying the most random items of furniture to house all the stuff I couldn’t bear to part with. [ 638 more words ]

Kristabel Loves #10: The September Reading List

Well hello there! Do I dare start this post with another statement on the passing of time? I’m really not ready to put double glazing film on my windows again. I know that some of you are all about the changing leaves and Pumpkin Spice lattes, but Autumn tends to be the season where I panic and look at my long-lost resolutions. [ 424 more words ]

Houston, we have a problem, my stripy jumper collection is getting out of control! I think this is number 5? 😬 I don't do things by halves, also watched 6 episodes of Insecure last night.

#SCHWARZKOPFcreators: All change, all change! 💁🏾 For this month's post, I'm reconnecting with dry shampoo, which is so necessary if you're all about that wig life. I love being able to do my hair in minutes and #got2b 'Rockin' It' by @schwarzkopf allows me to preserve #MYstyle. There's no excuse for me being late because of my barnet now, (though I did chuckle at the Lauren Hill 'I need to align my energy with my time' meme). 😂 #ad http://ift.tt/2yvjJ10

Had so much fun with these gals at the #CarnabyFashFest launch today! 👯 If you spot this pink taxi at London Fashion Week Festival you're in for a treat, there's free talks, workshops and giveaways until Sunday! See more in my Stories! 💜 @carnabylondon #ad http://ift.tt/2jO2rJc

A Weekend In Hamburg

Fun fact, my most visited country is Germany. Ever since my aunt moved there when I was 8, I've loved seeing the mixture of traditional villages, bustling cities and gorgeous woodland (also I’ll always remember getting stuck on a zip wiring platform). When I was invited to visit Hamburg last weekend, I was curious to see what it was about. I didn't know much about the port city (and hadn't seen it much on the gram), so was keen to give it a chance. [ 651 more words ]

When Hamburg looks a bit like Amsterdam. ❤️ It's no surprise that the Speicherstadt area I s a UNESCO world heritage site, it's beautiful! I've ticked off a fair few on my travels, Hué, Sintra and most recently Budapest. Where should I head to next? ✈️#theprettycities #meinhamburg http://ift.tt/2wVwWl4

Yay I cycled 15km in Hamburg today and survived! 🚴🏾‍♀️ We dodged stalls at the old fish market and headed towards the quainter houses of Blankenese. I may have spotted a pastel one that I liked.... 💕 @mein_hamburg #meinhamburg http://ift.tt/2wSGv42

How To Spend A Chilled 72 Hours In Budapest

Szia! Are you even a blogger if the Szechenyi thermal baths aren’t on your Instagram feed? The Hungarian capital seems to be the destination of choice for us internetty folk, but I’ve always had it in the back of my mind since part of my extended family hails from there. In reality it was only after hearing about the good weather and reasonable prices, that I finally added it to my must-visit list. [ 1,585 more word ]

Who else is prone to eating in their room all the time?! No more! 🙈 It's so much nicer having mealtimes away from my screen and I need to use the living room more often. Even though I'm in denial about Autumn, I'm excited for more random conversations, relaxing nights in and faux-supperclubs with my housemates. Yes, I might even start sharing my food. 😂 If you fancy sharing how you live and relax, then make sure you use #IKEAatmine and #WonderfulEveryday. #ad @ikeauk http://ift.tt/2eL9ltz

Take me back to sunny Budapest! ☀️ I'm throwing it back to #KbelsBudaBday on the blog and sharing my thoughts on organising a milestone birthday. 🎉 I'd love to know your thoughts! Do you feel pressure to plan the perfect day or are you a little more chilled with Netflix and a takeaway? 🍕 #linkinbio http://ift.tt/2xcA1yv

How To Celebrate A Milestone Birthday (If You’re Freaking Out A Bit)…

More birthday musings! Can you tell that this is just a ploy to keep the well wishes coming in until at least November? Even though I’m still trying to milk the fact that I’ve aged another year, I wasn’t feeling this way a few months ago. You see, I’m the kind of person that puts unnecessary pressure on myself when it comes to birthdays. [ 662 more words ]

My Twenty-Something Wardrobe Essentials

If I haven’t gone on about it for long enough, I’m 30 now! It’s been two weeks since my birthday and I’m in that weird limbo period where saying your new age is always a bit weird. I don’t really feel any different, so I’ll probably still be consuming all of that twenty-something content (hello Teen Vogue) whilst attempting this adulting malarkey for real. [ 872 more words ]

For this month's #SCHWARZKOPFcreators post, it's all about my roots. 🇯🇲 I'm of Jamaican heritage born in the U.K, but recently took an ancestry test which links me to West Africa, particularly Benin, Cameroon, Togo, Nigeria and Ghana. 🇧🇯 🇨🇲 🇹🇬 🇳🇬 🇬🇭 These Fulani braids hail from the region and they're my favourite ones yet, regal, intricate and so versatile. I don't think I'll ever want to take them out! @schwarzkopf #MYstory #ad http://ift.tt/2vKH0tn

When you rent with housemates, sometimes it's tricky to get your communal areas sorted (I swear we've still got board games from 1987 for some reason). 😂 I filmed some videos with @ikeauk a few weeks ago and showed them my multifunctional living room. I use it for eating, relaxing in front of the tv and as an occasional photography studio. It probably helps that there's lots of Pinterest-y plants to use as props, all I need to do is keep them alive! 🌿️ Share how you relax using #IKEAatmine and #WonderfulEveryday, always looking for more interiors inspo! #ad @ikeauk http://ift.tt/2wPc0xg

The Széchenyi Spa in Budapest. 💛 Apparently we missed a trick by just sticking to the outside pools and I wish I'd got the £15 massage (I blame the hangover). 😭 Still we had fun, Lucy tried to teach me how to swim and I did my best Ex On The Beach impression... 😂😂😂 #KbelsBudaBday http://ift.tt/2vfz73w

Last week's celebrations. 🎉🥂👯😘 A massive thanks to @shinythoughts for making me book this trip away when I was um-ing and ah-ing.

Thanks for all the birthday love yesterday! 🎉 We've been ticking foodie recommendations off the list and Mazel Tov didn't disappoint. Chicken shawarma, chicken in the hummus (we ordered the wrong thing but ate it anyway) and the best chips ever.
