BLAZING THE COLD WITH THE BLAZERS...

Today marks the beginning of Autumn in the UK, but it surely feels like it's winter already. The weather is hella cold here and it doesn't help that it rains almost every day. This is the kind of weather that has 'Depression' written all over it. Ha!!
Like every season, I get rid of some old pieces in my closet and replace with new budget-friendly pieces that catches my eye. All my Fall/Winter essentials are ready and still filling. I was glad when Rosegal reached out to shine a light on their blazers, because they're not only wardrobe essentials. - They're Fall/Winter perfect!
I am not going to bore you and preach about how to style blazers, because I know you're aware of how to style em. Having said that, if you haven't joined the blazer wagon, look no further. Visit this brand for versatility. No matter the style you're after, I'm sure you'll find something cool/chic and at a good price too. I can't stress enough about the quality of their clothes. -Definitely not Versace quality, but for the prices of their pieces, I can't fault them.

Links for the blazers above; HERE | HERE | HERE | HERE
So kick start the cold season with some Autumn budget-friendly pieces from Rosegal. Oh their summer sales is still ongoing. In addition to 33% off, use code RGEN to get extra 10% off your purchase.
On another note, how cheesy is the title of this post.? 
Are you ready for Autumn/Winter?
What can't you live without in these seasons (fashion-wise)?

OOTD: THE COMFORTABLE CASUAL AND REAL TALK...

Happy New Week, Beauties!
Hope Monday was or is good to you (depending on the time zone of where you reside). I woke up feeling quite energized and full of positivity which rarely happen on Mondays. I'm a work in progress, but of late I've been experiencing some inner peace that had eluded me for a long time. When it comes to happiness, we associate it as a destination in life. We feel like we need to achieve a goal, get that car, big house, marry, a luxury vacation and all the crazy ideas that pop up in our heads. - And this is a big mistake! 
Why do we think that?
Why can't we enjoy the moments and the small achievements we accomplish each day?
Anyways I thank God and I'm glad I'm grasping little knowledges like this. When one has been through things in their life, little knowledges like that can escape em.
Can you relate?
"Also that everyone should  eat and drink and take pleasure in all his toil-this is God's gift to man."
*Ecclesiastes 3:13*
Unto the outfit, this denim dress is one of my favourite. It's a great comfortable dress with a lovely detail. It can be dressed down or up which is a plus/factor when buying fashion. This Nasty Gal velvet sneaker is a recent purchase and I love it! 
Have a blessed week Beauties!

OOTD: KANYE ATTITUDE WITH DRAKE FEELINGS...

Happy Monday Beauties!
Hope everyone had a lovely weekend and ready for another busy week. I spent my weekend with the girls celebrating one of our friend who will be getting married in few weeks and relaxing.
Continuing my wishlist collaboration with Zaful, I want to review this roll-sleeve text print tee I got from them. Dope is the right word to describe it. What a way to make a statement right!!? 
The tee was in good condition when it arrived. There's absolutely nothing I can fault.
Keeping it effortlessly chic, I paired it with this Fashion Nova moto leggings which is all kinds of awesome. The heels is from JustFab which is an online subscription fashion retailer. Heard of them? I finished the look with the only black ladies bag I owe and my hat.
Share your thoughts...

Have a blessed week and don't forget that you're appreciated by me.

OOTD: HOW TO STYLE A CHECKERED SHIRT...

It can be called checkered, flannel, plaid or tartan print, but one thing is for sure, -this print has a statement feel to it. These type of shirts are so versatile and so effortless. Dressed up or down, there's a lot one can do with them.
Styling Tips
  • With Fall creeping in, you can style a checkered shirt by layering with a puffer or fur vest, cardigan and also some light coats.
  • It can be used as a layer up on top of a basic tee or dress.
  • It can be worn with different pants and skirts. You can choose to play it comfortable like mine or tuck it.
  • For a more classy and professional approach, it can be tucked into a good fitted pant or skirt. Layer with a nice tailored blazer and accessorize according to your liking.
  • It can be layered with a lovely sweater with the collar and sleeves out.
  • Last, but certainly not the least you can tie it around your waist or tie it in front to add a funky vibe to an outfit.

The styling options are endless if you ask me. 
How do you style a checkered shirt?

Somewhere around last two weeks, I decided to change my hair a bit by getting some braids done. After five days of getting it, my scalp was so itchy that I had it removed. The itch was so terrible that I couldn't cope anymore. Such a shame because I spent fifty pounds to have these done (lol!). Maybe its about time I try wigs. 
Ha!!

Hope everyone had a lovely weekend though. Wishing y'all a blessed week.

OOTD: SLAYING IN A YELLOW DRESS...

Oh happy day, Beauties!
Hope all is well with everyone.
Summer is nearly over! Are you mad as I am? While Fall is a beautiful season, I'm not a fan of the cold and the early darkness. The things that keep me sane during these seasons are assorted teas and fashion. - And this yellow dress couldn't have come any quicker!
This is an Asymmetric Patchwork Turtleneck Bodycon Dress from my collaboration with Ericdress here. Collaborating with these brands in China, one never knows what to expect. We're always skeptical about the quality of the clothes because of how affordable they are. Having said that, this dress arrived in a pretty good condition. The fabric is good with the right amount of stretch which is great for a curvy body like mine. The fabric has a sweater thickness to it which is perfect for Fall/Winter.
Now onto the negative side. The dress arrived with some black stains on the neck area. I haven't washed it yet, but I hope it disappears when I do. Aside that all is good!

Thanks for stopping by this blog. Have a wonderful day.

REVIEW: CLEAR SKIN WITH MARY KAY MIRACLE SET...

Howdy Beauties!?
Welcome to my first ever beauty collaboration and review. Friends to this blog know that I'm not or wasn't too keen when it comes to beauty matters. I'm the 'get a bangin clothes, accessories, shoes and outta the door' kinda gurl. With inspirations from beauty bloggers and nagging friends, the wasn't has changed. I've created time to pamper my skin now and then. My skin has moments of its own, but trying different products definitely helps.
It was pure joy when a Mary Kay consultant contacted me to review their Timewise Miracle Set, a Foundation and Cleansing Brush. I've been using these for awhile now -- today's review is about the timewise miracle set.
The set includes the 3-in-1 Cleanser, Age-Fighting Moisturizer, Night Solution and Day Solution Sunscreen.
How To Use It: Basically, make this your morning and evening routine. In the morning; 
  • Wash your face, then using a bit of the Cleanser, gently massage that on every angle of your face for few minutes. Wash and pat face dry.
  • Apply small amount of the Day Solution Sunscreen first and follow up with the  Age-Fighting Moisturizer. Done!
In the evening, repeat the same routine, but omit the Day Solution Sunscreen and use the Night Solution instead.
Verdict: Like I stated above, my skin has a mind of its own. It chooses when to cooperate and which products it dances to. Thank God this miracle set was one of the lucky ones. Consistently using these products left my skin so soft and blemishes free. It controlled  fine lines, blackheads and definitely made improvement. The smell isn't overpowering which was a plus for me. I can't fault these at all. Worked for me! This is my first time trying Mary Kay products and I'm sold.

Have you used Mary Kay products before? If no, what beauty products are working miracles for you?

My personal style screams comfort, effortless-chic and fun. While I like to try my hand on trends sometimes, its only the trends that are worth trying. - And nothing screams fun like mixing prints and colours. 
When Rum & Coco asked me to choose two items from their website, this striped blouse caught my eye and it wasn't a disappointment when it arrived. The material has enough stretch which is always a plus. I love the quality.

SUMMER VIBES WITH ZAFUL...

What comes to mind when you hear summer?
Personally, summer means relaxing in comfortable fashion, treating yourself to yummy simple food/drinks and doing all the things that one enjoys doing. In fact I wish everyone was off during summer but, unfortunately its not the case. Ha!
Having said the above, lets get into summer vibes with Zaful. The brand has been making waves in the fashion world with their budget friendly trendy pieces. There's something about their fashion that's so relaxing but, speaks volume at the same time.
If you're a friend to this blog, then you know that I've eventually decided to learn how to swim. - And that means I've to wear a swimwear which I don't know how that's going to turn out. I'll be going on a holiday in few days which is also a good reason to go ham on summer pieces. After watching YouTubers review their palm tree swimsuit, I had to check em out and as you can see from the above photo, its beach paradise! The whole palm tree print on it makes this swimsuit so appealing/cute. Next to it is this white lace crop top and shorts which I thought will be perfect for lounging around with le bae or prancing around with confidence in town. The top is off-shoulder which is a statement in itself.
Below are two bold and beautiful dresses and statement tops that I absolutely love. Summer and florals are always a marriage made in fashion world. The thigh-high slit on the second dress makes it a perfect date night number. A little sexiness never hurt nobody!
The white shirt with floral applique is an absolute fashion trend this season. So clean with a touch of feminine edge. 
Did anyone say Kanye West? Ha! I mean you either hate him or love him but, one thing I know is everyone got a little bit of Kanye attitude in em.

OOTD: STYLING THE KIMONO TREND...

Welcome to another #ootd post. Its been a minute since I did an outfit post. My photographer buddy is currently very busy hence the luck of outfit posts.
A summer closet isn't ready until you inject a kimono into it. The traditional Japanese wear which has been westernized to the T is disturbing the fashion world this summer. The effortless nature of the garment makes it hard to resist. Kimonos come in different sizes, styles, patterns and prints, -and they can practically be paired with anything and everything. It can be a statement piece or you can take a casual approach to styling it.
I got this kimono from Shein awhile ago but, unfortunately its soldout. I was drawn to it by the details on the sleeves. So beautiful! I wore this to a party.

Anyways...Beauties!
Hope the week has started off well for you. I'm patiently waiting for vacation and I'm off till September. This is one of the reasons why I love being in the education sector. It creates room for bonding with my son doing fun things.
How's summer at your end?
Have a blessed week, beauties!

SUMMER TRENDS WISHLIST WITH ROSEGAL...


Howdy Beauties?
Happy July!
I apologise for my absence here. The arrow on life somewhat turned downhill which was kinda depressing. Something happened that I've never experienced before but, lets get into that in a more personal post next.
Now lets talk about summer and the beautiful things that comes with it.
How's the weather at your end? For a minute the weather in UK was top notch hot but, as always it has the last laugh. - Nonetheless we won't let that hinder us from wearing stylish sleeveless denim dresseswhite mermaid dresses and any other summer trendy pieces brands have to offer. With a holiday coming up soon the hunt for summer staples is real.
Denim is a timeless essential that will never go away but, the buzz this season has been nothing short of interesting and amazing. - From denim chokers, to the pinafore trend and over-sized rugged denim jackets, brands are going wild.
Another trend that's buzzing are off-the-shoulder and ruffles. Embroidered, floral, playful, exaggerated, simple, romantic, -you name it and you'll find it!
When it comes to how to wear these trends, I believe its about individual styling but, I'll say, tone down on the accessories. Let the clothes do the talking because they bring enough drama with it.
Like me, if you're on the lookout for affordable summer ensemble or going on a holiday and need some cute pieces, Rosegal offers free world wide shipping on all orders. The brand caters for plus size ladies as well. I took upon myself to check some reviews on Youtube and all the ones I watched were positive.

LIFESTYLE: MY WEEKS IN PHOTOS...

Thank you for choosing to visit this blog. You're really appreciated! -And on that note, welcome to June! We're blessed to be alive, because not everybody we started this year with is here with us. Don't let fear cripple you to try and live.
Hello Beauties!
Howdy?
Greetings from Germany! I kick-started June with a mini holiday to Frankfurt for few days. This was very needed as I haven't taken any time off this year. This is my first time here and I must say, its definitely a rich city. As the home of European Central Bank, this is a financial and business hub. Architecture-wise, I describe this city as a city of versatility, because of the mix of contemporary architecture. Amazing! There's a great atmosphere and the people are friendly. I could go on and on, but all I can say is that visit if you've the chance.
Before travelling, I received some Mary Kay products to review which by the way are doing wonders to my blackness. Stay tune for my first proper beauty review soon. Ha!
These images basically sums up how the past couple of days have been.
Enjoy!
What have you been up to?
Wishing us all a blessed June. May God keep us protected and grant us strength to accomplish our goals.
Happy Weekend!

CURRENT LUST LISTS...

Not a day goes by without a fashion lover lusting on something (fashion-wise) to add to the million things that they already have collecting dust in their wardrobe. As stupid and greedy as it sounds, its something they can't help, but to do. Ha! It is like someone who loves to eat. They always have food on their mind.
One of the hobbies in my spare time is to window-shop online. It sounds harmless until I find pieces that appeals to me. - Then my bank account starts yelling for help. Lol!
On a good day with clear mind, the good Lord will wave all my responsibilities in my mind, and things will be left in the shopping basket. Now on a stressful day, responsibilities will be overlooked and things will be bought, because shopping is therapeutic when stressed. Lol!
Can you relate?
Minding my own business, Ericdress got in contact to do a wishlist. I thought it was easy until I visited their site and spent hours of hours crushing on almost every piece. It was torture basically! As we can't have everything in this world, the girl had to narrow her lists down to these trendy pieces you see right here.
What's there not to love! 
The prices are very affordable. You can get ten percent off your order using the code INS10. Nothing like style on budget!
Are you familiar with this brand? 

I hope the week has started off well.
Keep it moving no matter what.

OOTD: WERKIN IT IN STRIPES AND MIX OF ANIMAL PRINTS...

Stripes in my mind is one of the classiest patterns and they never go out of style. The pattern can be kept simple by pairing it with solid colours or you can up the volume by pairing it with other prints. No matter how you choose to style it, make it yours and make sure you're comfortable in it. 
I played a little with my styling by pairing the dress with two different animal prints which worked well for me. Absolutely chic in an effortless way.

Hope the week is going well for you.
Thank God we've made it to another month.

OOTD: KEEPING IT CLASSY IN THE RUFFLE TREND...

Lets be honest and say, ruffles have been around for a long time, but of course the unknown fashion gurus who think they're powerful enough to dictate what the world should wear have decided that this should be the IT trend this season. Ha!! - And we'll pretend to be gullible and go along with it. Lol! 
Having said the above, there's nothing to not to love about ruffles or frills and bell sleeves. They're fun, but give this edgy, statement, romantic and chic vibe, -depending on what you wear and how you style it.
I put my spin on the trend by keeping it simply classy. In the first outfit, I put the 'chill' on the polka dots frill hem skirt (added a casual feel to it). In the second outfit, I opted to pair the crispy clean bell sleeve blouse with a feisty red leather skirt which was just five pounds from Zara. It couldn't get any classier than that.
The link to both tops can be found HERE.
Waya say?
Have blessed days ahead, Beauties!
