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.
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.
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 😂😂😂
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 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!

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.

(And the beginning of London Fashion Week – more to come soon) and I have absolutely loved it! Granted, I wasn’t there soaking up the sights and sounds of NYC but I am here to share some of my fashion week faves. The header image for this blog post includes Karlie Kloss closing the show at Brandon Maxwell, Slick Woods walking in the Fenty X Puma show and Gigi Hadid (who pretty much was in every show) opening Prabal Gurung. Let’s jump into the brilliance that was (and is) New York Fashion Week.
(Disclaimer: all images without the Victoryforu logo were not edited by me and do not belong to me!)
My friends at Oxford Fashion Studio absolutely slayed NYFW with no apologies, featuring designers such as Heroes 4 Heroes, Gina Cas, Manola Hawaii and Vanessa Gounden. Make sure you check out their live videos for a full look at all of their amazing designers:
Oxford Fashion Studio will continue to grow and become a fashion power house. Make sure you remember their name.
If you know me well enough, you know that I am a dancer. If not check out my Youtube Channel – Shameless plug, I know. But when dance and fashion come together as the culmination of self-expression like at the Desigual show, I have to completely say, “I am in Love!”
I remember saying this as soon as I saw a short snippet of them on Instagram. And here is some of what I saw, you know just ICYMI all:

And the reviews have been so good. Rihanna did not come to play! Her risky, no-prisoners attitude transcends her music, fashion and acting careers. Whether you like her or not, Badgalriri is undoubtedly slaying the game.
The Urban designs also involved both men and women which for a menswear lover like me really intrigued me, I believe that Rihanna really has a skilled eye for design:
Do I need to say anymore? The British fashion powerhouse absolutely killed it in NYC:
Happy Anniversary to the Haute Street Style Genius! Here’s to 20 more years of amazing, crazy, innovative style!

“Grant me the strength to change the things I cannot accept.” is how Gurung’s politically charged began. Freeing the nipple, empowering women and completely showing us all how it is done is what he does best.
Even though there are so many oustanding designers, these are just a handful of some of my favourites from NYFW! Next Stop: London Fashion Week.
I’m so excited for the upcoming fashion weeks. So much so that I’ll be sharing my favourite moments from last seasons & what I’m looking forward to this season over on my Instagram.
Make sure you’re following @victoriousdarius to keep updated.
Step 2: White Dungarees from Boohoo Man (Currently not available so White Jeans will do)
Step 3: White High Tops from Electric Styles
This is a great look where you want to make a statement and personally, I feel like white makes my skin look really healthy hence why if you see me I will probably be in white or a bright colour.
Look 2 – Casual Monochrome
Similar rules as Look 1, but with the contrast of Black. I wore my Black and White tribal print joggers from Forever 21 (No longer available) however, any black jeans or joggers will work perfectly. Don’t forget these #Unique sunnies from Hashtag Sunglasses. Enter Code ‘NewShades4You’ for 10% off your purchase!
Look 3 – Hint of Red
Excuse my face in this one 😂
Black & White look amazing with pretty much anything but red is a power colour. Style the white T-Shirt and Black Jeans with these beautiful Red Brogues from Shoe Embassy. And add some shades like mine from Street Affaires.
Look 4 – Marching into battle
There’s a lot more colour in this fit which I love. Starting with the ASOS white Tee base, layer on a sleeveless khaki shirt like mine from Forever 21 (No Longer Available) then add this Black and Gold Bracelet from ASOS for some extra colour and match them with some Gold Sunnies like mine from H&M. Grey Jeans are becoming a favourite of mine lately, they just work with a lot of things. And finally some brightly coloured Adidas Superstars.
And those are my looks all based on this amazing T-shirt from ASOS that I am completely in love with. I got it in 2XL, even though I am an XL, to make it baggier and to emphasise the drop shoulder more.
Welcome back to the Blog. Long time no speak. Let’s Talk about Black Girls Rock!
Before getting into the style, I just want to address something. This is something that we should all be watching, no matter your gender, religion, colour or orientation. It is amazing and if you have never seen it before, Catch it on replay on BET.
Now time for the style!
(Disclaimer: All Images found on google.com)
The Host – Taraji P Henson
The Actress and Activist hosted the show and wore 5 different outfits throughout the night. A queen can never have too many outfit changes right? She started on the Red Carpet in dark blue cut-out gown by David Koma. Her looks all celebrated her curves and inner and outer beauty!
Young Gift and Black – Yara Shahidi
The graceful, powerful and knowledgeable Yara Shahidi stunned in this Purple Elie Saab gown. Her style is great but her confident, calm & collected personality is even better. She accepted her award so graciously and spoke so eloquently. Congratulations on getting into Harvard!
I’m still yet to watch insecure but I already know how amazing it is. Love this light and airy gown from Aleksandra Dojcinovic, it’s extremely flattering on her!
The beautiful young star is changing the world by standing against bullying and is standing for equality. Looking absolutely stunning in this Ong Oag Pairam dress.
These are just a few of my favourite looks from Black Girls Rock. What were your favourite looks?
But beyond the looks, Black Girls Rock is a powerful movement that is truly amazing. Every speech inspired me to get better and go further and watching this always gives me a higher level of respect for my grandmothers, aunties and my mum!
I look forward to see how the Celebrants and M.A.D girls progress.
