Washed Out

IMG_3156 - Copy Hi guys! How you doing? (in Wendy’s voice). Its quite cold out there so I am home chilling, not netflixing though, haven’t done that in ages. I was going through my photo archive and discovered this look I shelved the first time, I wasn’t feeling the black lippy on me , I thought it washed me out but seeing as I dont have any new style post, my friend and neighbor who usually takes me photos travelled (sad face) ,  I thought why not edit the photos creatively and blog it. The struggle to find content for the blog is real yall.

So who else watched the just ended celebrity big brother? The drama in that house was real, Tiff with her horny talks, Gemma and her Diva ways, Steph and her love lingo, I really wish her and Jeremy all the best , I hope she finds herself and stop being so love needy, I used to be like that myself, thank God I found my self worth. I am really going to miss all that entertainment now that its over but I guess its good its ended so I can dedicate that hour to finally reading that book I talked about in my New year goals. How are you doing with your resolution though? Its February already, get in on it if you haven’t already. Stay blessed. XX. Continue reading Washed Out

Product Review – LaCura Caviar Day and Night Cream

IMG_3227I dont know why I get pretty lazy when it comes to reviewing products, i actually review them in my head, they just never make it to the blog, I was almost going to do the same with this product but I thought hey! Nelo, that would be very unfair, infact one of the most awful thing you could ever do to your loyal readers. These products are so good and so affordable, It would be utterly unforgivable to keep it to myself.  Aldi only produces limited numbers at a time so it’s always sold out but the brochure says its coming back this thursday so I thought I better let you all know about so you can go get it and thank me later.

Windy, Rusty and Green

IMG_3272Winter came down in full force the past week, we had temperatures ranging from 1 – 5 deg cent, I know my friends in other parts of Europe will be like puhleeese but please allow me, it was quite cold for my ass out here, thankfully though, it seems to have gotten slightly better this week, I really hope it stays getting warmer and warmer, I am tired winter and winter fashion, the cold and all the layering that comes with it. This was one of the better days, quite windy but not as cold, I wanted a bit of color so whipped my Zara rusty red skirt and determined to stay away from black, I paired it with my Olive rollneck top, military jacket and Camel coat and somehow the colors went well together I think?

Www.fashionationline.com:

How To Wear The Slip Dress Trend Effortlessly

The slip dress is forecast to be one of the big trend of SS2016, as usual with fashion and trends, the Slip dress as outerwear is not exactly a new phenomenon, some celebrities have worn it on the red carpet but this is the first time , its going mainstream, its hitting the streets yall and I being the trendwhore that I am, see my post on 2015 major trends and my take on them here, have been giving it a look and thinking hmmm, how, how and how does one wear a slip and slay the hell outta it? Body on sleek or not.Stirring up the embers: Amber Heard marveled in a silky ember-hued dress while Reese Witherspoon went with a modest navy number at Tiffany & Co's Blue Book Collection celebration dinner in NYC on Wednesday: This is the image that immediately comes to mind when one thinks of donning the slip dress, the thin straps demand a no bra treatment, the way it drapes on the body is so unforgiving of any extra folds or flaps, it requires a model like figure complete with perky boobs and waist clavicles to pull this off.   Continue reading How To Wear The Slip Dress Trend Effortlessly

New Year REDsolutions

IMG_3318Happy New Year Once again my beautiful people, have you made your new year resolutions yet? Or do you belong to the class of peeps who dont think its necessary? Personally I think its cool to have milestones that you would love to cover in the new year so that time to time, you can always reference it and see how far you have come, however if you are the type that makes your resolutions monthly then coool, you are the perfect one!

When it comes to resolutions, I believe they should be realistic and practical, for example, you haven’t read a book in ages and suddenly your resolution is to read a book every week, comeon you know that’s not possible , once a month however is doable depending on how you apply yourself . So my resolutions for this year includes but not limited to;

  • Take a course in Photo Editing, my editing skill are so so low.
  • Read a book every month
  • Get my body back in shape
  • Shop Smartly ( Make a list of things I actually need  before shopping)
  • To Save , To Save, To Save!

Are you on board with the new year resolutions gang? Let me know what your are in the comment box.
