Manchester

24 hours in Manchester…

I recently spend 24 hours in Manchester visiting my sister, and I was so surprised by how my I enjoyed. First and foremost, let’s talk about the Intu Trafford Center shopping mall. THE most amazing mall I’ve ever seen/been to in my life. Not to mention, that I found a stall with the best candy floss I’ve tasted. My sister and I haven’t spent much time together before this trip, so it was nice to do a bit of retail therapy, get lunch, and take busses and ubers all over Manchester for a day.

Later that night, we went mini golfing at the Roxy Ballroom, which was one of the hardest mini golf coursed I’ve done, but it was so fun and I really enjoyed it.

Over the summer, I was apart of a photoshoot for an up and coming local skincare brand, created by a lovely friend of mine. The shoot was so dreamy and the photos came out so beautiful, that I wanted to share them on here, as I can’t post them all on instagram haha. So have a look through and enjoy.

Golden Birthday

Looking back on one of the best days..

On September 20th (yes I’m extremely late haha) I celebrated my 20th birthday, which was also my Golden Birthday! It was one of the most special birthdays I’ve ever had and I felt so grateful and loved, even though I’m 1000’s of miles away from the rest of my friends and family. Sadly this was also my first day of school, but I made the most of the day and still enjoyed it.
To start the day, I had breakfast at The Grand cafe in Green Park with my parents, and rushed to class after. After class, we went to Wildwood in Covent Garden, and to Milk Train for dessert (MY FAV). Throughout the day other little things happened that made me feel really special but I’ll spare you all the details. Needless to say, it was just a really good day.

The Attic

One of my favorite shoots to create and model for..

Over the summer, I styled a 90’s/early 2000s inspired photoshoot and I enjoyed it so much. I’ve been modeling since i was 14 years old, and I love every bit of it. The photoshoots, the networking, the fashion shows, the list goes on. But I also love the creative side behind the scenes: styling, creative direction, etc. So I try to do collaborations with local photographers as much as I can. Here are some of my favorite shots from the shoot below.

Enjoy! XO- Ally

Velvet Lady

What I wore to the Miss Cayman Islands Universe pageant

I really loved this look. This is what I wore to the Miss Cayman Islands Universe pageant a few days ago. Believe it or not, I bought this suit on sale at Topshop! Definitely one of my best sale finds to date lol. Underneath, I wore a little ribbed bralette from Pink and my simple everyday accessories.

Chelsea Flower Show

Here are some photos of the beautiful displays at the Chelsea Flower Show

Here are some photos of the beautiful displays at the Chelsea Flower Show in Sloane Square. The theme this year was ocean conservation themed so there were jellyfish, dolphins, turtles, octopus and more made entirely of plants/flowers!

Regent’s Park

Spent my Easter at the prettiest park..

I spent my Easter this year at this beautiful park I randomly came across while exploring. Regent’s Park is a popular leisure spot for Londoners on their holidays and days off. Because it’s spring, the beautiful flowers have bloomed and it was one of the prettiest places I’ve ever been to.

Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams exhibit

My favorite pieces from the Dior exhibit at the V&A

In March I attended the Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams exhibit at the V&A museum. It was definitely one of the most amazing exhibits I’ve ever been to and I’m so glad I got to go. The exhibit featured garments made by all of the former creative directors, and the current creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri. Here are some of my favorite pieces from the exhibition!
