Hi My Lovelies!
After much persuasion my mum & I have started our Youtube channel! It's called MADDtalk! This is a video that many people said we should do because of our success with weightloss. I went from a size 12 to a size 8 from changing a few small things in my diet & drinking a slim shake that we talk about in the video! My mum also lost a great amount of weight doing the same thing! If you know anyone that could benefit from our tips please share this video with them & also please subscribe if you like what you see!

The Kitchen BBC2! 'Gogglebox with food'!

Hi my darlings!

Oh my goodness I missed you all so much, haven't blogged in a while & its just because everything has been a bit manic at the moment & now I can finally tell you why! Crazy, crazy, crazy! But hey, I've come back with a force! I've got something pretty cool to tell you about! My mum, little brother & I will be featured on a new documentary series tomorrow! I wasn't allowed to talk about the show while we were filming it but I'm allowed to talk now!
We will be going on the radio to talk about the show in the morning, we have to wake up at 5am for a 7am start, so I'm off to bed soon but wanted to post this first! The show is called 'The Kitchen' & it's a documentary style programme similar to Channel 4's Gogglebox, only it's in the kitchen. It shows what different families eat, talk about & get up to in the heart of the home!
So I would love you all to watch darlings! Monday 5th October - BBC2 - 9PM!
Here's lots more info about the show: MEET THE LOVELY OTHER FAMILIES!

Skort Alert!

Hi Fashionistas!


If you read my last post you will know that I was going to change my blog name, well I have finally decided on a name now and it's F.B.I 'A blog where I investigate all things fashion!'
I hope you like the new name my lovelies! So lets talk about what I'm wearing shall we? So this outfit is literally HEAD to TOE Primark! I do love a bit of primark! Some of the bargains are actually pretty insane & this outfit is one of them! Primark don't have a website to purchase online (which is annoying) so I cant link any of the items but they were all recent purchases so if you like anything go & get it quick!
The Beatles T-Shirt - £3 - Primark
Yellow Skort - £6 - Primark
Monochrome Heels - £15 - Primark
Monochrome Satchel - £5 - Primark
Is that crazy or is it crazy? I felt so summery wearing this outfit & it's my first pair or skorts ever!
North American
plural noun: skorts
  1. a pair of shorts with a flap across the front (and sometimes also the back) to give the appearance of a skirt.
 I must admit, when I first saw skorts were trending I didn't like them at all & I refused to get a pair! However, after seeing this yellow ones in primark I have definitely been convinced! I'm all for a good old skort! Here's some of my faves that I've found online!

So what do you think about Skorts? Do you have a pair? Or several? Are you a skort addict? Let me know & come back soon to F.B.I!
     Lots Of Fashionable Love,

Hi My Darlings!

When I got ready this morning I felt like having a 'all black everything' moment, which is very rare for me as I love colour! So I decided to rock these incredible PVC trousers I grabbed from a vintage shop & paired it with a black t-shirt! Such a simple look, yet I still think it makes quite a big statement! Especially with these PVC trousers as I do think they are LOVE or HATE but I clearly love them!
High waisted PVC trousers - £22 - COW vintage (Manchester)
'Do Epic Chic' T-shirt - £10 - CLICK HERE!
Strappy Heels - NOW ON SALE £12.59 - CLICK HERE!
So that's a FULL outfit total of just under £45! That's a pretty good bargain if you ask me! So what do you think of these PVC pants? Do you LOVE THEM or think "No, Imani these are a fashion fail!"

Let me know!

By Lauren Pope Collection! #ItsByLP

Hi readers, I've missed you oh so much! I've moved house in the last couple of weeks & re-located my office space & work so everything has been hectic, hectic, hectic! I'm not complaining though as I feel like this year I've really been able to live my dream & I know that it's onwards & upwards from here!

A few weeks ago I was invited to the amazing launch party for Lauren Popes new collection with so I was so excited to take lots of pics so I could blog about the fabulous day! I'm a big fan of Lauren's style & TOWIE so it was a pleasure to meet her in the flesh & my goodness, she is gorgeous!

When I first arrived at the Sanctum Soho hotel it was absolutely stunning! I went upstairs to the event which was on the rooftop of the hotel & it literally felt like I was in an exotic destination! The sun was shining, luckily! & we also got to try some exotic fruit that was shipped from Thailand! Now I'm not talking about your bog standard granny smith apple, I'm talking Dragon Fruit, Lychee & other fruits I could never pronounce! So that was something fun & interactive that everyone got to do! We also had a few cocktails & chatted while we waited for Lauren to arrive! Once she did it was a pleasure to meet her, she talked with all the bloggers there, took pics with us & was just a complete darling! We then watched the catwalk show for the new collection which was fabulous! All the items had a beautiful summery theme. There were a lot of pastel colours & of course loads of co-ord sets which Lauren has clearly been loving at the moment! Everything was super feminine & girly but she also incorporated women's tailoring into the collection! There were a few suit pieces which I'm completely obsessed with, Lydia Bright arrived in the pastel blue trouser & blazer suit & of course she looked fab in it!

Here's some pics I took on the day!

My favourite piece from the collection!

double denim

Hi Darlings!

Today was a Double Denim kinda day! I decided to throw on my two favourite vintage items that I absolutely love! I grabbed these amazing shorts from a vintage pop up shop I went to a few months ago, as soon as I saw them I was completely in love with the design. I'm so obsessed with the denim stripes on the one side, so I was so happy they were my size because a lot of the time vintage clothing comes in super large sizes! The denim jacket was my little brothers when he was 5! So when he got too big to wear it I decided I could rock it as a cropped style jacket (but really its a kids jacket! shhh... don't tell anyone!) 

Vintage Denim Shorts - Harper & Lewis Vintage Store (Located in Birmingham Bullring) - £15
Black Strappy Stilettos - Blue Inc - £17.99 CLICK HERE!
Black Bralet - Primark - £4

What do you think about double denim? Some people think it's a big 'no no' to wear two denim items at once, well I don't have any rules! I think anything is acceptable when it comes to fashion! Thanks for visiting me here at Fashion&Tingz, come back soon wont ya!

Check out Harper & Lewis online store! Loads of vintage goodness to choose from including levi shorts, motorbike jackets, flannel shirts & more!

Hi Lovelies! I'm writing this with a big smile on my face because I'm sitting in the garden with the sun beaming down on me & it feels great! If I close my eyes I can imagine being somewhere tropical like Hawaii but its a big disappointment once I open them & all I can see around me is my over grown garden bushes! I desperately need to travel somewhere nice soon, my mum is looking into cruises for next year so that would be beautiful if we decide to do that, I'll keep you updated!

All this heat has made me pull out my summer dresses that I haven't even looked at for ages! I think we are going to have a really long summer & I'm so excited because its about time we saw some heat!

The dress I'm wearing is from a car boot sale & I've been dying to wear it! I loved the leopard detail on the dress so I decided to pair it with my leopard heels from
I also discovered an incredible jewellery company that I am totally obsessed with! Most of the jewellery I wear on my blog is very 'Statementy' & heavy because that's my style! But when I came across I was completely IN LOVE with practically every piece from their collection! It's so different to what I usually wear but I love their attention to detail & the vintage twist in their pieces! It's super feminine & I'm slightly obsessed with them at the minute! I've got two stunning items so far & I'm planning on expanding my collection very soon! 

Printed Summer Dress - £4 - Bedfordshire Car Boot Sale
Leopard Platform Heels - £5 -
Gold Chain Handbag - This was a gift & I'm not cheeky enough to ask the price!
Gold Chain Belt - £3 - H&M sale
'Winging My Way Back To You' Necklace - £18.50 - Eclectic Eccentricity Click Here!

Here is a little sneak peak of my other item from that will be featured on my blog soon! It's the stunning Phebe Vintage Opal Head Chain How cute is the packaging? So tell me ladies... Have you got any Eclectic Eccentricity jewellery? Please let me know what you are loving from their site as I think they have helped me to change my style of jewellery slightly, all of a sudden I'm yearning for simple, detailed feminine pieces! Instead of chunky oversized gold!

See you all again soon for more fab fashion posts! Tweet me, I wanna hear from you!

Hiya! I hope my UK readers are enjoying the warmer? Maybe I should take that back because one day its completely bucketing with rain & the next day it's boiling, like today! So I suppose when you see the sun you have to enjoy it while it lasts & that's exactly what I did today! I had a little look through my wardrobe & decided to wear something that screamed summer & I went for my red jersey which I love! I've got quite a few basketball style tops but I think this is my fave because of the length & colour! When it get's even hotter maybe I can wear it as a dress? or am I pushing it? Ok, perhaps with some shorts then!
Today I felt like wearing my amazing skinny jeans that I wore to Manchester Fashion Week! I always find it difficult to find jeans that fit perfectly but these are definately my favourite pair, if I could wear them everyday then I would! Perhaps I'll buy a few pairs so I can do that! I tried on fake nails today for the FIRST time in my whole life! I'm so not into the fake nail thing, I just find it pretty annoying & time consuming, so grabbing some quick stick on nails seemed like a fun thing to try! I think it was mainly the zig zag pattern that drew me towards them! I love bold patterns so in the end I bought 3 packs with 3 different designs! I know, 3 packs! I just threw myself right into the fake nail world! The first few hours were extremely embarrassing... it took me about 3 minutes to get some money out of my purse whilst the lady at the Tesco tills thought it was just hilarious! I couldn't text, I could barely do my hair & infact I asked my 9 year old brother to help me! Yep I know, I ought to be ashamed to call myself a female!

Red Jersey - £6 - london market - Similar Here!
Shredded Skinny Jeans - £22.99 - Blue Inc. Click Here!
Zebra Print Heels - £10 - Primark - Similar Here!
Chunky Statement Necklace - ZARA - Sold Out
Zig Zag Nails - £1 - Primark Beauty (Absolute Bargain!)

I think I need to get a few summer dresses & embrace the warmer weather fully! I must admit though, deep down I'm most definitely NOT a dress girl & certainly not a fake nail girl! I was a tomboy when I was younger & only started wearing dresses & skirts when I was 16! I literally hated my legs but as you get older you learn to be grateful with what you have & just generally become more confident in your own skin! So I will be showing a bit more leg in my up coming posts! Ohh la la... But deep down, I'm a still a tomboy at heart! I actually love baggy clothes & jeans! I also have been known to shop in the men's section more than once!
So let me know what your looking forward to this summer! I'm looking forward to getting a few pairs of denim shorts which is literally so out of character for me! I NEVER wear shorts, its just a big NO NO for me but like I said, It's good to be comfortable & happy with yourself. Most of us would love to change something! Some of us want to be thinner, or have bigger boobs or smaller boobs in my case! Some of us want longer hair or longer legs but this year I've decided that I don't want anything different to what I've already been given!
Let's make a promise to ourselves ladies, let's love who we are, fully!
