Everyone loves a wardrobe update. Whether it’s needed or wanted there’s just something exciting about new clothes. It becomes a bit embarrassing when your friends know what’s in your wardrobe as well as you do. You find yourself saying “I’m going to wear that pink dress with frills that I wore to Liz’s birthday party and Adeola’s wedding”. Or your tone becomes apologetic when you hear the dreaded question “what are you wearing?” and you say almost begrudgingly, “my black and white dress”. You don’t say much more than that

Let’s be real for a minute, the blogosphere is a ridiculously saturated and competitive industry. This makes it difficult to stand out because everyone is doing the same damn thing. But what sets a blogger apart are the collaborations – brand collaborations to be exact. Think of it this way, you can have a degree but without a job, you can’t classify yourself as a working professional or employed – you are unemployed. Same with bloggers. You are not a legitimate blogger until you begin to get those collaborations. Bloggers

A soft glam makeup look is different from a ‘glam’  or an ‘everyday’ makeup look. The smokey eye look is so 1999, the most replicated makeup look in the beauty world is the soft glam look.   This makeup look can be worn on a normal day, runnings errands, out with friends or even to a wedding.  While a glam look is strictly for special occasions and an everyday makeup look would be subtle enough to wear to work. I am by no means a makeup expert but I’m that girl

Are you single and searching? Or, in a relationship but frequently go on date-nights with your man? If your answer is yes to either of these questions then I’ve got T-H-E perfect, sexy date-night outfitS for you. But if you don’t like to show your legs then you might want to give this one a miss – sorry. The assumption is that making an ‘effort’ and looking sexy on a first date makes you look desperate and sends off the wrong signal. But is that really true? I personally think

I don’t have to wait until Wednesday to wear pink. I wear pink any day I feel like it and lately, it’s been all the time. I have always loved the colour pink but my love for it has become more intense lately.  So much so that if I see anything pink, my instinct is to immediately get it. Okay, enough about me. I want to turn this on you for a second, indulge me. When are you too old wear pink? Are you ever too old to wear pink?

It’s winter over here in South Africa. Some days are cold and my joints hurt and some days you forget it’s winter and the weather is sunny and beautiful. This, of course, makes it easy for me to dorn my summer clothes like this lavender mesh skirt. The mesh trend is currently a favourite of mine. I love anything lace or see-through. It’s kinda sexy, kinda daring, just like me. This skirt actually came with a lavender lining but I removed it for this see-through effect. I have a similar

Good skin care has become an important part of my daily routine these days. I think it has something to do with getting older. After the age of 25, there are certain skincare ingredients that should be included on your cosmetics list. Because the older you get, the more obsessed you become with looking young and these products help to ward off the signs of ageing. God forbid I start to get wrinkles. I want youthful, supple skin for life – who doesn’t? I don’t have the perfect skin but

The pleated skirt is one of my favourite style of skirts to wear. And with the recent drop in temperature, it is the perfect countermeasure to keep your legs warm against the winter chill. Pleated skirts are au courant and popularly worn by celebrities, fashion bloggers and influencers. Bonus? It comes in many different fun colours. If that’s not reason enough to become a fan, here are 6 reasons why the pleated skirt is a sartorial favourite: It creates the illusion of curves If you’re keen to add curves where

How would you style these boots? This was the question I asked some of my followers on Instagram on Thursday. Ankle boots are a must-have for every fashion blogger/influencer/ ‘It girl’ or anyone worth their salt in the fashion and style industry. My favourite clothing and accessories are those that you can style in a myriad of ways. The ankle boot is no exception. You can style your ankle boots with a skirt, dress, jeans, shorts – whatever you like – and still look like a total badass. This is
