I’ve put together three winter looks to help you slay warm this winter and what’s best about these looks is that they are very affordable. Under R1000 for a mini-winter wardrobe? Now, that’s what I call W-I-N-N-I-N-G!   Trench coat, sock boots – Mr Price Look 1 Trench coats are a staple winter look. A good trench coat will last you decades and can be passed on to your

Lately, I’ve had a few requests from aspiring bloggers asking me to give them some insight into the world of blogging. Like I’m an expert. Three years later and I’m still trying to figure this blogging thing out. But having been riding this pony for a while, I have learnt some invaluable lessons. Some of which I wish someone had told me about before I embarked on this journey. Here are some of the things no one ever tells you about blogging Blogging is a full-time job and requires commitment

Did you know that Softsheen and Redken developed the original Mizani brand? And in 2001, after existing as part of the Soft-Sheen Carson group in Chicago for over a decade, Mizani evolved into the L’Óreal Professional Products Division. I’ve known about Mizani for years but up until recently, I didn’t know it was made specifically for textured hair or that it is under the L’Óreal brand. My first time using Mizani was the middle of last year while I was in Nigeria. The stylist at the salon I frequented recommended the product

When it comes to dressing, most working women are looking for convenience. We want an outfit that can transform from day to night in seconds. We want to go from the boardroom to a night out on the town. Is there an outfit that can do that?  Yes, there is. In fact, there are many. We often waste time and precious brain power asking ourselves “What am I going to wear?” That decision to pick an outfit can be as quick as two minutes or a long and drawn out 45

Yes, keeping up appearances does come at a cost, just look at #visabae. This young Zimbabwean lady living in the UK asked her viewers/subscribers on Youtube to donate some money towards her visa application. Rutendo Tichiwangani aka RLT on Instagram and Youtube shared a 30-minute sob story on her Youtube channel, I have one month left, essentially asking people to donate  GBP 2300 in order for her to apply for indefinite stay in the UK. GBP 2300 is R39 000. In naira, that is an equivalent of  N 1 166

Not the act itself but the process:  Girl sees something she likes  Girl starts thinking of different ways to style it Girl buys item   I often

The AFI  Cape Town Fashion Week  2018 was abuzz with the who’s who in the fashion industry. The event was a mix of masterclasses, runway shows, pop-up shops and most importantly, culture. Unlike Paris Fashion Week, Lagos Fashion Week or SA Fashion week to name a few, Africa Fashion International (AFI) celebrates and recognises talent in fashion from the African continent. This year’s theme, #IamAfrica really captured the essence of the show. The schedule included fashion designers from various African countries including Nigeria, South Africa, Kenya, Tanzania, DRC, Ghana, Senegal and

It’s not the first time I’ve styled my shirt the “wrong way”. That is, back-to-front and I don’t think it will be last. There is one reason why women often feel like they don’t have enough clothes in their wardrobe even though they have plenty. That reason is, not knowing how to style.
