Beyoncè Wembley Stadium Review.

Opening the show instructing her fans to shout “I slay” Beyoncè was already encouraging 90,000 admirers to show confidence and be fierce. The influential singer and advocate for black lives matter performed her crowd-pleasing opening song Formation with her choreographed dance troupe marching behind her.

It is crazy to see how far she has come since Destiny’s Child growing as an artist and entertainer. A passionate and strong woman, the world has still carefully scrutinised her over the years from her age and pregnancy to Jay Z’s infidelity rumours. However Beyoncè always comes back fighting and as she fist pumps the air the strong message of independence and female empowerment echos through Wembley Stadium.

An expert storyteller Bey’s latest album Lemonade does just that. It tells a story of forgiveness, redemption, and combines her own personal experiences with black people’s suffering in America. Of course her set wouldn’t be complete without some older material from her previous albums Dangerously In Love and I Am Sasha Fierce alongside Destiny’s Child throwbacks.

A packed out stadium Beyoncè had her fans (also known as the Beyhive) bowing down to their Queen and all the females uniting to sing “Run the world (girls)”.  Labelled a modern day feminist she has inspired many to stand up and support one another.

Her beautiful a capella rendition of “me, myself and I” stuck a chord for many in the arena as she coincided it with an emotional speech about self importance, and striving to achieve a wonderful relationship with yourself.  She didn’t shy away from declaring her love to her Alabamian/Creole roots whilst playing a short clip of family images and videos. Beyoncè reminded us that we all our human and we should be proud of our heritage and who we are.

Even her interludes didn’t fail to impress; washing the crowd with purple lighting to pay homage to the late Prince. After a quick change into a glittering leotard her powerhouse vocals paid a poignant tribute singing “The beautiful ones” by the legend himself and purple confetti rained across the audience.

Survivor, freedom and halo were the last songs of the evening, and performing these accomplished dance routines in shallow water proved what a true, master show-woman she really is.

When life serves you lemons you make lemonade.

Coconut Lane and Ivy Park.

After making recent purchases from online store Coconut Lane and Beyonce’s fitness wear Ivy Park I decided to combine the two together to make a more substantial blog post.

If you follow me on social media platforms Twitter and Instagram you will know that I have been posting a lot about Coconut Lane and talking about their products and how you can get a discount code from me (I’m a coconut queen ambassador).

I have made a few previous purchases and I constantly scour the ‘new in’ section to see what goodies I can get because I never get bored of shopping. So when I saw the white marble patterned notebook I knew I had to have it. It matches my phone case and my nails and at the moment I can’t get enough of this design.

I love writing lists and doodling so this is the perfect accessory for any journalist and blogger. I will taking it on my vacation next week to write down notes and plans for the days ahead. Sure enough it will match the white and blue architecture of Mykonos.

Alongside my notebook I bought this rose gold pearlescent bracelet. It is adjustable and shines beautifully in the sun. The jewellery from Coconut Lane is really good value and is on trend. Many people have complimented me on the bracelet and now I can’t wait to buy the black version!

Beyonce’s new fitness range definitely hit the headlines last month and created huge excitement across social media. I myself was one of those excited people and fell into the hype and consumer trap of Queen Bee’s exercise wear.

I purchased a pair of black leggings from the collection online from JD sports and they arrived within three days. As a size 10 on the hips I originally ordered a size XS as I thought the leggings would have stretch. However when they arrived they were far too small, I couldn’t even get them past my knees! I exchanged them for a S and still they were too tight around the legs and bum meaning I had to change them again for a size M!

Considering Beyonce is a curvy woman I was surprised at how little give and stretch these leggings have. As someone who lifts weights and likes to practice yoga I can’t do either of those things wearing Beyonce’ leggings. Don’t get me wrong I’m a huge fan of Bey but this collection does make me question how much input she actually had in creating and designing this range.

On the plus side they make your legs and butt look great! They lift and tighten in all the right places and if you were to go for a light jog you could do so comfortably. Just remember to size up!
