*extremely honest post* Not gonna lie this is the first year in my life (out of the 10 years I’ve been single) that I’ve actually TRULY been content being single, like really really content not just saying it because it’s the right thing to say. Two years ago I literally said with my mouth “I need a man to be happy” and I believed that with my whole heart. I said I’m only happy when I’m talking to someone. My bestie and sister tried to convince me but I wasn’t trying to hear it, I was like “It’s okay for you to say because you’ve both got a man” I didn’t want anyone to convince me that being single was okay, that it was a “great time to focus on yourself “ heck I’d been doing that for 8 years!! Can I just have a moment to be upset without being told how I should or should not be feeling?! Those feelings were real!!! But I’m not gonna lie that was the unhappiest and loneliest time of my life, looking back I’m cringing because I can’t imagine thinking like that right now. But it’s real and some of you are probably where I was at… The problem was I was simply tired of being alone, bringing home the bacon and frying it myself, not having anyone that supported my dreams and giving so much to other people and getting nothing back. I was beyond drained and I was draining myself even further by being so hard on myself. I didn’t truly understand self-love I really thought I did but when that lonely season hit me, it all went out of the window. In hindsight what that season has taught me is even though I want a man I don’t NEED a man, Nobody ever died from being single lol (debatable) But what I do NEED is Self Love and Gods love; Actually internalising how much God loves me and in turn being able to give myself the love, care and attention that I so desperately craved from others. Sorry for the long post, but it had to be said I’ve actually got an event on Tues 13th where I’ll be sharing more of my story (link in bio) but I wrote this to let you know that YOU ARE ENOUGH! People ask me all the time why are you still single? And my answer is simple: because I’m supposed to be. Gods timing is perfect 👌🏾 Photo taken at @rb_london Self Love event 💋

Every word counts, every image you put into their minds and hearts shape their reality. Feed them love, let them know it's okay to make mistakes. A boy with low self-esteem grows to become a man with no self-esteem. Encouragement is the key and motivation is the steering wheel. Your children will hear your voice forever. Make sure your voice is positvely powerful enough to make them feel strong. Look your children in their eyes. Hold them tight and slence all their fears. Give them enough space to fall, and let them know the power is in standing up! Unstoppable. Unstoppable. Unstoppable! Your children are your reflection, make sure that mirror shines bright. There may be days when they feel like putting their head down, and that's when your voice is needed the most. The power is in your hands. Give them one hundred percent of your heart, and I guarantee you, your children will make you smile forever! Conversations that build greatness.

Mexican Feast Recipe

Mexican Feast - Victoryforu

This is the first blog post on Victoryforu Fashion in 2018!

I know I have been slacking a bit but I have a good reason. I have been working on some crazy content for you all and here’s the first that I am happy to bring to you all… I cooked and filmed it and here’s the recipe for how to create the same.


  • 8 Chicken Breasts
  • Lean Minced Beef
  • Spinach
  • Mushrooms
  • 12 Tortilla wraps
  • Flour
  • All Purpose Seasoning
  • Mixed peppers
  • Onions
  • Garlic Olive Oil
  • Eggs
  • Smoked Tabasco
  • Old El Paso – Smoky BBQ seasoning
  • Lettuce
  • Cucumber
  • 6 Salad Tomatoes
  • (Optional) Salsa, sour cream, guacamole and cheese
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • Thickening agent or gravy granules


  1. Prepare all of the vegetables and meat. Make sure they are all cleaned and chopped to your liking.

For the Mince

  1. Dice the onions and sweat them in a small amount of the garlic olive oil.
  2. Once sweated, add the mince to the pot and brown.
  3. During the browning process, add salt and pepper to taste, the Smoky BBQ seasoning and smoked tabasco. Add more or less to get it to the perfect heat for you.
  4. Once the mince is cooked through, add a thickening agent or gravy granules to thicken the consistency that will be perfect to go into a wrap.

For the Chicken

  1. Cut the chicken into inch thick strips (Doesn’t have to be accurate) and season with salt, pepper, all-purpose seasoning, smoky BBQ seasoning. This will taste better once it has been left for an hour in the fridge or (if you have the time) overnight.
  2. Using vegetable oil, prepare the pan for shallow frying.
  3. Season your flour with salt, pepper, all-purpose and smoky bbq seasoning.
  4. Whisk the eggs and milk together
  5. Test a small piece of chicken for flavour once the oil is hot. Dip it in the egg mixture, then the flour and then into the oil.
  6. Once you have tasted it and it is to your liking, continue the process for the rest of the chicken. After they are golden brown, place the strips on a wire rack and place into the oven on a low heat to finish the cooking process for about 20 mins.


For The Spinach and Mushroom mixture

  1. Make sure they are both clean and chop the mushrooms into quarters.
  2. With a little bit of garlic oil, sauté the mushrooms.
  3. Add salt, pepper, smoked tabasco and the smoky BBQ seasoning to taste. You could add chillies for an extra kick.
  4. Once the mushrooms are almost cooked, wilt the spinach but make sure it doesn’t become soggy.

For the mixed peppers

  1. Chop your peppers into strips and begin to sweat them in the pan with onions.
  2. Add salt, pepper and smoked tabasco taste.
  3. Turn down the heat so everything will soften and the flavours will come together.

Final Assembly

Because I am literally useless at wrapping tortillas, Here’s a video to help you assemble the perfect one:

Whip up a nice salad, add the condiments you want and then you’ll have the perfect Mexican feast for your friends and family.

I hope you have enjoyed this. Make sure you check out the video I filmed with my friends making this.

Avoid the cold: 4 outfits that will keep you warm and stylish

I am still in shock about that it snowed in the UK.

I acted like a child for the first 4 hours… then I realised that I would have to ride my bike in the snow the next day… And needless to say, I have dropped off my bike a good couple of times due to black ice. I am so glad no one was around to see my clumsiness.

But if any good came out of the snow, it was the inspiration to wrote this blog post. I thought it would be the opportune time to take some content in the snow and create 4 different outfits that will keep you warm and stylish this winter.

Not everything in this post is still available in stores so I will provide you with alternatives to help you make it your own.

Look 1: Jack Frost

I was 100% trying to channel Jack Frost and Frozone with his outfit with the silver, white and blue hues. And I have to say, I think I have accomplished that.

The base of this look was a Silver Top from ASOS (Which I am so in love with!) and I decided to add a white sleeveless hoodie from Topman to separate the silver of the top and the jacket from Forever 21. The little additions of blue with the cropped chinos from ASOS and the spiky blue hat completed my look.

Shop the alternatives here:

Silver Leather Jacket Alternative
White hoodie alternative

Look 2: Winter Warmer

Now, this look was quite outside of my comfort zone initially. It’s quite low key in comparison to what I would usually wear. However, I loved it in the end, so much so that I thought I’d (foolishly) challenge my model friend Addis Miller (Go and follow him!) to a who wore it better contest on Instagram so make sure you go and vote.

Go and comment on both of our Instagrams and follow us both. To vote for me, comment ‘👑’ (The Crown Emoji) and to vote for Addis, comment ‘💪’ (The Flex Emoji) and we’ll see who you prefer!

We both have on the same top who is now reduced to £7 from ASOS (A great gift for Christmas) and I adopted the warmer brown tones with my bulky and warm brown leather jacket and off-white bomber jacket from ASOS with my cropped chinos.  The warmer tones look great and also feels amazing. Investing in an insulated coat will really be a great value for money.

Leather Jacket Alternative

Look 3: Christmas Jumper Chic

Adding a bit more Christmas cheer back to the looks, a festive printed jumper can go a long way with this outfit. Using the jumper as the statement and framing it in white, you can create a look that’s an absolute masterpiece.

The longline shirt from ASOS is the perfect length to add more interesting lines to the look as well.

Look 4: Chilled Night out

For a more relaxed look, I went with my usual white dungarees from boohooman with a sleeveless khaki shirt and red plaid sweatshirt on top a white super longline T-shirt from ASOS. This creates a slouchy yet stylish silhouette. My beanie was lovingly knitted my Myssy Farmi, a Finnish brand I met earlier this year and my shoes are from Dogeek!

All of these looks are affordable looks that you can recreate with some of the alternatives I’ve suggested or by simply using my looks as inspiration.

I hope you have enjoyed this post and don’t forget to go and vote on Instagram. I’m excited to hear your opinions on who wore it better.
God bless.

Let your voice be heard – Libya needs our help!

​You may or may not know about the atrocities happening in Libya. The frightening things is that you probably are unaware of this as it hasn’t been on any major news platforms. – Sign to get parliament talking about this atrocity!

Libya is in Crisis and many people are dying, being raped, mutilated etc in the Libyan slave trade.
​ -Sign this to get help Libya have a voice!

It’ll take a few seconds to sign these petitions. Let your voice be heard. Shine a light on slavery and let’s unite as humanity to end this. – Send a letter to the US ambassador!
I pray that God shows us what to do on this time of crisis.

This will shared to both my blogs because I believe that we cannot be silent in times like these.

My Honest Review: Quick Fix Facials

I have been using Quick Fix Facials for about 2-3 months and I have to say I am very impressed. I have very problematic skin (As I have discussed on Victoryforu) so to find something that worked for my skin was extremely helpful.

These three are my personal favourites and are the ones that are almost finished – deffo need to reorder soon. I also love the Overnight Miracle Mask which smells divine!

Calming Clay Mask – I used this on my problematic areas around my mouth and nose which are the most sensitive.

Collagen Lift Mask – Perfect to use a night before a big event, this is actually what I used to get ready for the Oxford Fashion Studio shows in London.

Mega Moisture Mask – I used this over the problematic areas as well which helped to replenish the moisture lost after a long day.

As I have mentioned before, my skin is one of my biggest insecurities. To find something natural, cruelty-free and affordable that actually helps my skin to look better is so good. I highly recommend purchasing Quick Fix Facials especially if you’re a teen on a budget like me.

I also recommend multi-masking, especially if you have combination skin like me. My current situation is Exfoliating Scrub on my nose and forehead,  Collagen Lift on my cheeks, Anti-blemish Mud under my eyes and Mega Moisture everywhere else.

Is my skin perfect? Not by any means. But I have noticed a glow that wasn’t on my skin before. My biggest recommendation for using the Facials is finding an exfoliating sponge to open your pores before use and to wash it off after use. It really helped to produce a better result for me.

There isn’t a product in this range that I wouldn’t recommend. There is truly something for everyone! Make sure you check Quick Fix Facials out now. Free UK delivery when you spend over £10 and each Facial is £4.99… I don’t think I need to persuade you anymore 😂😂😂

Just go get it!

My Oxford Fashion Studio Experience

With only one day of Fashion Month left, 😢 I thought it would be best to tell you about my Oxford Fashion Studio experience.

As you saw in August, I had the time to sit down with the amazing OFS team, if you haven’t seen that video, Make sure you check it out now:

I am proud to say that I have been helping with OFS for the last 3 years and it has helped me to gain confidence, expand my reach and interview some extraordinary people.

I hope you enjoy this short LFW interviews video I have created:

Let’s have a look at some of the amazing styles that were featured in the OFS London Show:

My LFW reflections

London Fashion Week is well and truly done.

In Fact, it’s actually Milan Fashion Week (I am behind, I know haha) but I always like to have a little look back at all the great things I was able to see. Due to unforeseen circumstances, I wasn’t able to attend as many shows as I would have liked to, however, I am happy, alive and here to report about my favourites.

I hope you enjoy my latest vlog from London Fashion Week with Oxford Fashion Studio who have recently had their first-ever runway show in Milan. I have to say I am insanely proud of them!

My highlights were OFS (obviously), Teatum Jones especially Kelly Knox, Tommy Hilfiger, Adidas X Hailey Baldwin, JULIEN MACDONALD (Shooketh), Halpern and Ralph & Russo. And I’ll be explaining why I loved them all so much!

Most of which will be shared somewhere on my Instagram! But I will discuss my 4 favourites right here!

Oxford Fashion Studio

As you saw from my vlog, I got some super cool backstage footage.  A full runway video will be coming soon so watch this space!

Teatum Jones

Teatum Jones seriously does diversity well. Race, Disability, Gender, they really are an inclusive brand that has clean lines, structured pieces and a modest palette of pastels and neutrals. Absolutely love it. And Kelly Knox!

As you may have seen on my Instagram recently, I expressed why Kelly is such a great role model, inspiration & friend. Make sure you go and check it out!

@itskellyknox made my night yesterday on Twitter. For someone who I've never met face to face, I really connect and am encouraged by this amazing woman. Despite the odds she has pushed through into places where she can represent the beauty inside of her and be an example to all that Disability doesn't make you dis-abled. Your abilities are simply different to mine. The reason you all see me talk about her a lot is for this reason: I started speaking to Kelly when I was looking for inspirational women to write about for an article that I was hoping to be published (Sadly it wasn't published) but unfortunately her son was unwell at the time and then subsequently she contracted the sake illness. Once I knew this, I began to pray for her and her family and in due time she got better. Our friendship started from the moment we said hello. I hope and pray that you will continue to grow, to learn, to inspire others just like you've inspired me. She's someone who I esteem highly and truly believe will become a supermodel legend like @cindycrawford @iamnaomicampbell and all the amazing ladies who walked in last night's @versace_official show as a tribute to Gianni. Before you decide to scroll away from this post, please just do one thing for me: Go and show @itskellyknox some love and give her a follow! God bless you Kelly! #KellyKnox #defygravity #beauty #representation #beautiful #breakdownthosewalls #fashionblogger #styleblogger #fashionista #fblogger #instagood #aintnofearhere #loveconquersall #GodLovesYou #VictoryforuFashion Victorious Everyday.

Tommy Now/ Tommy X Gigi

For their first time showing in the UK, Tommy Hilfiger took London by Storm! With 90’s rocker/punk vibes running through both collections, the Rock Circus brought the fire on and off the runway.

The beautiful Hadids were reunited on the runway, (#FamilyGoals) Bella donning it in a hoodie dress, Anwar in a Geometric jumper and striped turtleneck and Gigi slaying her own creation. The runway was adorned with supermodel elite such as Jourdan Dunn, Lucky Blue Smith, Sara Sampaio, Presley Gerber, Hailey Baldwin.

The rocky show had amazing people such as Cameron Dallas, Lewis Hamilton, Neymar Jr, Ali Gordon, Jim Chapman, Caroline Daur and so many other insanely talented people were sat in the Frow.

Julien Macdonald

As you can probably tell by my capitalisation of his name, I really love Julien Macdonald!
