Sandra Bland


Two weeks ago today Sandra Bland was found dead in her cell in a Waller County Jail after being arrested for an argument after a minor traffic breach.

Since hearing of her death many theories have come about as to how she died and whether she was actually alive when her mugshot was taken. Official reports say she commited suicide but there are many reasons to believe that she may have been murdered. I really hope the truth comes out. Sandra was a civil rights activist and an advocate of the #BlackLivesMatter movement. 

I'm not going to act like I'm a fully fledged expert on all race issues in the world but as a black woman it absolutely haunts and disgusts me the way she dies and the way her case has been handled so far.

I really hope we can keep Sandra Bland's name alive and we find out what actually did happen to her because no one deserves to be forgotten after being treated so horribly.

OOTD: Boohoo Plus Flocked Print Shift Dress



Dress: Boohoo
Boots: New Look (similar)

I recently went to the cinema with some friends to see Captain America 2 (which was amazing!) and I wore this dress I recently purchased from Boohoo. It was only £20 and I couldn’t resist not buying it. For the price it is a really good price and more than worth it. I love the daisy design on the dress and the quilted fabric material. 

 I sized up to a size 22 because I knew that it wouldn't be that generous and I’m glad I did as there isn't much stretch to the material of the dress however it is quite big around the neckline which is slightly annoying.

I basically live in these boots that I bought from New Look last year. I have wide feet but I bought these boots in a regular fit and did hurt quite a bit when I first got them but I've worn them in since buying them and they are incredibly comfortable now.

Which other items on Boohoo have caught your eye recently?
