Mula Clothing 3rd Year Anniversary! 

4th June 2016 What a day...

When I got the message that my partner in crime photographer Ryan Prince was covering the 3rd Year Anniversary for Mula Cake Clothing and I was invited as a blogger, I knew exactly what time it was.

3 Years since Mula Cake Clothing began, they celebrated with the community the 3rd year anniversary with a family fun day (and night) in the heart of South Norwood Recreational Park.

Unsure of what to expect I was prepared!! Kitted with my jumpers and jacket (the usual, unknowing of course the weather was planning do a U turn). Had my comfy shoes, £20 in my purse (which was more than enough) and a notebook should I need it.

We was blessed with a hot, not a drop of rain Family fun day.....
And family fun it was.

With a variety of bouncy castles to keep the kids super busy, a rodeo which I was SO tempted to join, and so much more in this blog post I will be highlighting a few of my wonderful experiences on the day.

Kids Activities 
As much as a 23 year old young lady like myself likes to act adult, I could not help myself. With face painting available, sweets galore, the bouncy castles, my inner child was having a sweet day. No pun intended.

The food
It's not an event until there's a cloud of smoke followed by smell, followed by massive queues. Mission accomplished.
I was blessed with some tasty Jerk chicken, even managed to take some home. Winning!!!

The Refreshments
Now I have never had a shaved ice snow cone.  Serious.
It wasn't until I was faced with SNOW BALLZ.
He suggested I have the ocean breeze and he had my heart. A nice welcome, a laugh and a flavourful ice cone. What a brilliant friendly stall.

By the second half of the day, when I needed further refreshing *ahem* I went on a hunt.
And found myself a fruit juice stall. FRESH BOOST
He offered me Orange, Carrot, Apple, Beetroot & Ginger all for £3.30.
Now I will not lie, it wasn't the nicest drink in the world, but I felt so healthy with my fresh bright juice. Made the experience so much more au natural.

Love a good juice...

Next we have: The Mula cake
Here we get to the Mula Cake Clothing side of things.
It's all in the name. Cake!!
And it did not disappoint.
With a cake baking competition where the public can taste and vote. How can we go wrong!!
The cakes were seriously nice, and all under one tent, never had so much cake in my life.
If this is what it's like this year, count me in for the next....
In case you are wondering it was a tie, both 2BADDA & NUTTIN BUT DELICIOUS came on top. Cakelicious
Pictures below of the winners, and the cakes displayed in the competition.
WARNING: You will get cravings
2 BADDA - WINNER
NUTTIN BUT DELICIOUS - Last Years Winner










And finally: The Mula Cake Clothing
We have but of course the main event, the reason we all came together.
3 years of Mula Cake Clothing, below we have the clothes and bits of the fashion show, which was so much fun by the way.
Photographers & Videographers at hand, the crowd surrounding the red carpet, music pumping. We had a fun fast paced fashion show.
Even though I was hoping for a freeby t-shirt (joke), Mula Cake Clothing is now definitely on my radar. Catch me wearing it very soon.
Enjoy the pics below.









Thank you to Mula Cake Clothing team for having us, to cover a small part of the event. We would love to be around for the next one, bigger and better. X

POP BRIXTON???

What do we think of it?


I have been fully aware of the controversy surrounding Pop Brixton, and since having visited over Easter, I felt compelled to write a quick piece on the new hotspot in Brixton.
With gentrification on the tip of every tongue, as well as peaceful protests & community marches taking places it is no secret that London is changing.

But who says this is a bad thing....

As a recent creative offering services to the local community, I was so excited to be accepted by Pop Brixton. To be there working with the new crowd I had heard so much about however had me feeling a bit funny, as though I was adding to the controversy.
I thought about the controversy for one minute, and then I didn't bother.
I was so excited to take the jobs that I didn't care, and what a great night it was!!

To break it down, POP BRIXTON is a new space in the heart of Brixton, built on metal containers, it is a new cool, young, (I won't say hipster) place to be. It hosts many small businesses, live band nights, great new events, two of which I was going to work at.
My services include fast illustrations for the public, or face & body painting. In this case I would be face & body painting for the HOLI festival which was a massive hit, creating unique designs for the punters. Following this I worked on the EASTER Monday with the families and once again a huge hit! A great busy Easter for the start of my business.

However a part of me felt like a hypocrite, not that I am a dedicated protestor... not at all...
But I am aware gentrification is happening, and as a born & raised Londoner bang in the middle of Stockwell & Clapham I see it happening all around me.
With the new private buildings coming around, offering accomodation well out of our reach we see the phrase actively occuring "New people in, old people out".
My feelings were conflicted shall I say.
The reason for this post is to bring to light the reality that is POP BRIXTON.
It is not a place that consumes Brixton as though taking over, it does not maliciously discriminate on it's visitors. It is not a location where you can feel uncomfortable when entering.
It does however open its doors to new businesses to use the space as pop up stores, it hosts a variety of days & nights for the variety of the public. It requires all pop up stores to play a role in actively giving back to the community via workshops. It gives singers & groups a platform to be seen by the many,
It also gives opportunity to a young and starting out artist trying something new, and being given the opportunity to work at a new popular place. (Me)

And for that I am very thankful.

As opposed to seeing it as a negative taking over, I now see it a positive, just an addition to Brixton, an alternative. And when we have issues such as the arches being closed down, I realise Pop Brixton is the least of their worries. And after having done further research I realise the space used was given by the government with unused ground, meaning no one was inconvenienced. But ofcourse someone will always be inconvenienced, because that's life.

If you are still unsure on Pop Brixton, I encourage you to visit the location and make up your own mind...
For now I am merely grateful, and look forward to one day returning...
Not to mention the food there was DELICIOUS!
