#WEDNESDAYSGOALS//😊 Wednesdays got me all excited! 🤩 I’m just waiting for the sample of my new “BLACK IS BACK” colour range. --- I’ve been so used to the uniform of the City of London, the traditional black shoes, coat, suit and bag, that I wanted to rebel. I was determined not to use the colour black as a dominate colour in any of my designs. ---- Instead, I use colours that clashed or even jarred. I rock n rolled my designs with neon golds, sparkle and texture, bling and blang… ---- So no, it’s not that I dislike using black in my designs. My fellow designer friends use black so beautifully… check them out here @iivishop ---- But soon to be revealed and I can’t wait.🤩 ---- The BLACK is BACK range is a limited edition line of exclusive backpacks – we’re making TEN. Yep only 10! You see our designs are not just for the rich n famous, we want everyone to experience something specially made for them. ---- Pre –orders doors are opening soon Or head to @narivaboutique or email@example.com
#10THINGSABOUTME//🌼 Hey I'm Marie-Claire and I think its about time to introduce myself - here's 10 things about me: 1) I’m a handbag 🎒designer, who loves old tat and bright colours 2) I have a large collection of hats 🎩 and headscarves and the main reason why I live in hats/or scarves is because I can’t be bothered to style my hair 😬 3) You can find me in one of four places, the hair dresser getting yet another a cut, the woodland park run 🏃🏾♀️🏃🏾♀️- which is a 10K running path off the Holloway Road or cycling through the mean back streets of London. The reason they’re Mean Street is ‘cos in the last 10 years, everyone has jumped on bikes or scooters and let’s just say the cycling etiquette has changed 😬 and finally at my sons school gates trying to dodge the head teacher 4) I love to do the running man to 80s hip hop, #RUNDMC, #LLCOOLJ✅💕 5) I love avocado with everything sorry @heyisthatme 😬 6) If I’m not woken up at 5am from my toddler boy, then I’m a natural early 5:30am riser 7) My partner is a Scientist and spends most of his days listening to my ideas re design the house, his son’s stories about working with Inspector Gadjet or helping Captain Barnacles of Octonauts build an Octopod while scribbling hieroglyphics mathematical symbols or coding in to his work book. 8) I love the sound of coffee shop natter and love to sit and watch the world go by 9) I’ve a football team of brothers and sisters and I spend a great deal of my time travelling the world to see said brothers and sisters and their families. Oz is next stop! 10) I wanna be Oprah when I grow up

#BUSTINGOUTYOURMOVESFOR2018 TBT this was me, or part of me, sipping my rum and coke in sunny Mexico, Mezcalito Beach East Cozumel to be exact. My toddler boy is completely distracted, at play and had been for about 4 hours - not once did he come back asking for the Ipad or TV, or even 'mummy can you come play with me?' #beachlifeisdabest. We're told that this part of the island had no electricity, but powered on solar power. Possible nightmare for teenagers right! but heaven for anyone that wants a compete recharge. ---- January is my month of reflection or stillness as I like to call it, I'm not really into setting new year resolutions.
