Earlier this month, Alexandra was left shaken when her phone was stolen out of her hand while she was in Shoreditch.
The Love Island star took to Instagram to admit she was left ‘shaken’ following the robbery, but reassured her fans she is currently feeling ‘okay’.
Make-up artist Alexandra insisted she’s ‘thankful that a weapon wasn’t involved’ during the terrifying mugging and urged her followers to ‘be careful’ as she claimed similar incidents have become more frequent in east London in recent weeks.
The fitness enthusiast wrote: ‘Just got mugged in Shoreditch by a guy on a bicycle whilst walking down the street. I’m okay’, before directing friends and family to contact her via her manager.
But the influencer insisted she wanted to look at the brighter side of the situation while sending the robber ‘love and light’.
Alexandra added: ‘I pray that the guy who stole my phone is able to make some money from my handset (if that was his intention), as clearly he is struggling to have to go to such measures. I wish him nothing but love and light.
‘I’m going to enjoy being a little further disconnected for the rest of the today. Tomorrow is one of the biggest days of my life, so I’m going to go for a walk and reflect on my journey and how it’s got me here.
‘I will count my blessings. I will seek the good in this situation. Time to switch off & replenish my energy cause lord knows I need it! I hope you’re ready for what’s coming…’
