American Eagle Outfitters Denim Pop-Up

American Eagle Outfitters Denim Pop-Up

I remember when Old Street tube station used to be that bit of the underground that confused the hell out of me, seriously how many exits does it need, but in recent years it has become a hotspot for some cool fashion pop-ups. Earlier in the summer Cambridge Satchel Company gave it a festival vibe and now American Eagle Outfitters are showing off their denim collections.

Open until September 20, American Eagle Outfitters has all of its denim favourites on offer for both men and women. It’s basically denim overload, rows and rows of jeans from bleached blue to deep indigo, and black. They also have ever style imaginable including skinnies, flares, bootcut, straight cut, and even boyfriend, which come in every finish possible from the fashionably ripped, distressed, patchwork, and glossy to the good old American blue denim.

Tips For Travelling Solo

Tips For Travelling Solo

Today, I’m off to Kuala Lumpur as part of a Malaysia blogger influencer exchange programme with Malaysia Airlines. I’m excited, I’m nervous and so, so giddy, it is strange having such fear as well as happy emotions. I’m a little nervous as I’m flying alone, and most of my time in Malaysia will be just me, myself and I. This will be my first trip travelling solo, I’m excited for the challenge, but also at the back of my mind I’m worried about my safety, enjoying myself, as well as silly things like eating alone. If I was going to Paris, New York or LA I wouldn’t be as nervous, but this will be my first trip to Asia, I have to be honest I’m not sure what to expect, except maybe humid weather.

But even with a few worries, I’m looking forward to a bit of self discovery, and proving to myself that I can travel and experience a new place on my own. It was only when I realised I wasn’t the only one who thought travelling alone was a little daunting that I thought it would be great idea to ask a few of my fabulous well-travelled friends, who do this travelling solo thing all the time for their tips and tricks to making the most of my first solitary outing.

Anthony Nolan #IGiveASpit Campaign

Anthony Nolan #IGiveASpit Campaign

Fashionista Barbie is much more than just fashion, over the past five and a half years it really has developed into a fashion and lifestyle hub that I’m so proud of, and your wonderful feedback shows that I’m heading in the right direction. The growth of my blog has also meant that I have the ability to share and get behind some great causes, like Anthony Nolan’s #IGiveASpit campaign that I want to share today.

Anthony Nolan is all about saving the lives of people with blood cancer and the charity is currently working on highlighting the urgent need for more stem cell donors. The #IGiveASpit campaign is urging people to sign up to its stem cell register, especially young donors between the ages of 16 and 30, in particular men, as they produce more stem cells than women, but make up just 15% of the register, as well as calling on more donors from black and minority ethnic backgrounds.
