Ah, trends! Whether you love it or hate it, you can’t deny its existence. If you know anything about fashion and trends,  it is that it’s always recycled. You will also most likely know that trends come and go – bell bottoms today, skinny jeans tomorrow. The average life cycle of a trend is three to four months, it changes with the season. I’ve always been averse to trends because it encourages a fashion slave mentality. A fashion slave mentality is a breeding ground for capitalism. You just keep acquiring and

I attended my first ever silent disco by House of Oni last week and it was quite the experience. I like trying new things and meeting new people so when a friend suggested that we go to a silent disco on a Friday night, I only had two questions; where and when? What is a silent disco? A silent disco is a different kind of clubbing experience. When we arrived, the first thing we noticed at the entrance was how quiet it was. You could hear a pin drop. Completely

Even the most confident people have moments of self-doubt. You won’t be human if you didn’t. Clark Kent had moments of doubt and he was Superman. If you have moments where you worry that you’re not good enough, I want you to know that you’re not alone. There are millions, if not billions of women out there who go through this debilitating feeling on a daily basis. I’m not ashamed to say that I too sometimes suffer from self-doubt but it is crippling and it keeps you from making any

I see this everywhere, girl boss this, girl boss that. There is even a book by Sophia Amoruso called Girl Boss. Although I haven’t read the book, I can deduce what it’s about just from the title. Our aspirations as women are changing for the better. College education, getting a good job or starting a business are just some of the things women now prioritise in their lives. I am proud to say my generation – millennials – are doing big things and want more from life than to be

Those who know me well know that I’m a feminist. I’m not a radical feminist, my views on feminism are liberal – what I stand for is equality and justice for all. I guess that in theory makes me both feminist and egalitarian. As a woman, I believe that we are capable of doing what a man can do and should therefore not be discriminated against because of gender. Society teaches us that certain jobs are for women while others are for men. But society is wrong. And we must

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

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
