I may be resistant to trends because they are impractical and detrimental to one’s finances but there are some trends I am obsessed with and that make sense. The deconstructed shirt is one such trend. I have been wanting to try it out since I discovered it. I love shirts and actually wish I had more shirts in my wardrobe. Aside from dresses, shirts are my go-to on days I don’t want to think too much about what I’m going to wear. Shirts can be styled in three different ways;

Our lives get so busy and we’re constantly on the go that we forget that some time out is actually needed and is the best thing we can do for ourselves. Two months ago, I did the unexpected and asked my boss for leave – two months unpaid leave. Two months is a long time to go without earning a salary but I knew something had to give. I was either going to suffer being broke for a while or work myself to a mental breakdown – the former seemed

Say goodbye to ombre lips, two-toned lips are the latest and hottest beauty trend. I first spotted this trend on Instagram and it immediately grabbed my attention. The lips, not unlike the eyes are the focal point of your face. I’m that girl who aims to buy the brightest, boldest and most unique lip colour at the shop. Anything from purple, blue, pink or black, I’ve got. So, the two-toned lips trend instantly became a ‘ must try’  for me. The two-tone lips trend involves using two different shade/colour of

Affordable skin care products that work is not a myth. You can enjoy great skin using products that won’t break the bank. About two and a half years ago, I started to experience severe breakouts on my face. These breakouts, I realised were caused by my diet, too much sugar in the form of chocolates, ice-cream and biscuits. Not wanting to cut these things from my diet, I realised I needed to up my skincare game and so, I did. I started by first going back on the contraceptive pill

As I grow older and no doubt wiser, I find that I give a lot more thought to how I dress and how I’m perceived by the way that I dress. This is something that didn’t bother me so much until my late twenties and more so now that I’m 30. When your friends are getting married and having babies, you know your days of dressing sexy are over or are they? What does it mean to dress your age? Are there certain items of clothing you can’t wear once

Ah, autumn is here, and soon it will be winter. It’s darker, it’s colder, the leaves are a beautiful mix of gold and rust and it’s the perfect time for a wardrobe update. This is my favourite time of the year style wise. You don’t have to try very hard to look uber stylish during the colder seasons, just throw on a jacket, maybe even a scarf and boots and you look elegant. And of course, Superbalist has delivered the ultimate Autumn/Winter jacket collection for the season by style queens

I don’t like being called a fashion blogger, I prefer the term, style blogger. The reason is because a fashion blogger is more about fashion and trends and a style blogger is a broader term which encompasses both fashion and style. A style blogger isn’t obsessed with getting the latest and trendiest thing, they are rather concerned with personal style, knowing how to dress for your body shape and breaking the boundaries of fashion. I am by no means a breaker of boundaries but I can say, I know how to

I’m not usually one to follow trends but there are quite a few that I’m loving at the moment and fishnet stocking is one of them. Ever since this trend resurfaced sometime last year, I knew I had to own a pair. I searched high and low for them in South Africa but none of the major stores like The Lot, Top Shop, H&M or Zara stocked them so I ended up ordering from ASOS UK which was not a very good experience. Based on my experience, I doubt I’ll ever

I rarely attend weddings but when I do, I make sure I wear the best. Deciding on what to wear, as a guest to a wedding can be quite nerve-wracking. I never want to be under-dressed to a wedding, it’s just not a good look. When you’re invited to a wedding, you most likely know many months’ in advance, minimum of one month, so you have plenty of time to save to buy the perfect outfit if you have nothing suitable in your wardrobe. Showing up in a simple outfit

It’s Valentine’s month and what better time to talk about love? Love is a beautiful thing and arguably the best feeling in the world. Everyone wants love but not everyone is fortunate enough to experience it. There is a reason why movies like The Notebook, Titanic and The Holiday to name a few are so popular. Although love isn’t just portrayed in the movies, it is alluded to in many of the books we read and in the songs we listen to. Love is fantastic when it is good, but
