That Black And Scary Thing

For someone who recently discovered a new love in the colour black, I feel like I am a new me. Not that I have been someone other than my own self all along but I seem to have found a new and renewed me. I am always striving to have positive outlook on life and but now I find that I am comfortable with not only having simple and positive conversations with myself but I can also have deeper and scary conversations too.

Wearing Black Again

For a long time I have been avoiding wearing black as much as I could. Purely because I associated the colour with all the bad/unfortunate circumstances that happened in my life; mourning, failure and disappointment and the list can go on and on. Someone may ask “how does the colour have anything to do with me experiencing setbacks, is that not a part of life?”

Everything Grey and More

I never thought in my wildest dreams that I would fall in love with the grey colour. To me, the colour is associated with a lot with men’s wear especially formal wear or suits to be precise. Don’t get me wrong, I do know that there are lots of women’s clothing that come in the grey shade; all I am saying is that the colour is synonymous with men’s tailored wear. Besides my colours of choice are blues, browns and reds if I have to choose but grey, not really. After this though, I am sold on the colour. In fact, I hope to have blogged at least 5 grey looks by end of winter.

Have We Become A Society Of "I Know It All"?

I was having a conversation with someone the other day about people being so defensive about their space; what they do and say without listening to others or even trying to understand what is being said or pointed out to them. Have we become a society of “I know it all, you cannot tell me anything I do not already know; I have been there done that so who are you to tell me otherwise”?

Gone Are The Warmer Days

Goodday y’all
I miss the day I actually took these pictures; it is freaking cold nowadays hey. I know I always say Winter is my favourite season but boy, I do not think I anticipated it to be this cold early on in the season.

All My Favourite Colours In One Look

We are in the last month of Autumn and the weather is definitely on gear 2 readying for Winter. I always try to stick to colourful and bold patterns throughout the year generally; even when the day is gloomy and dreary, I choose to brighten up my days with the clothes on my back.

Forging On

Goodday y’all
Today’s post is a look that my younger brother loved photographing, I mean he took more than a 100 shots. Some of the best pictures I will be saving for a personal collage of the work we have been doing on this blog. To be quite honest, I loved this dress the first time I put it on and even to date it has been one of my favourites. I also bought it in a summery print that I will feature later on in the year. I accessorised it with simple shoes and clutch in colours that complement the dress as they are part of the gorgeous print. I hope you like the look as always.

Capsule Office Wear Wardrobe : Mr. Price

I often get questions on how I put together my outfits and where I buy my clothes. Then the questions will be followed with statements like; when they get to the store they get lost and do not see any cute items or they get overwhelmed when walking into the store. I thought I should a start a series where I will show what I would buy for an office wear capsule wardrobe from A particular store. In this way, I will be catering for different price points because as-is, people’s budgets are different. I am doing this as I am assuming that almost everyone who follows my blog has similar style or like some items I wear.

A Day In My Office Wear 7: Pleated Skirt And Blazer

Pleated skirts have been on trend for about a couple of years now. But I feel like metallic and the nude pink ones have been making the rounds and taking it a step above all other colours. I am still to see one person who rocked these and looked like they are lost or belong to a different planet or era.

Leather And Denim

Hello family! Time is passing by and I feel like I will wake up tomorrow and it will be 2018. Nonetheless one has to enjoy the little and simplest things that life has to offer. I am learning as I get old that one has to focus on the positives; then life will be easier, it will be simpler. How was your Easter? I am hoping you celebrated it well with your family.

Happy Easter 2017

Happy Easter weekend friends and family! Life is a little busy and this time is one of those that we have to sit down and unwind with family. This year’s Easter is a little different for me because my family is scattered around the country attending to commitments that could not be pushed to a later date. Needless to say, we still manage to catch up daily to remind each other of the importance of family. How is your Easter going? How are you spending it?

Burnt Orange And Nude For Lunch

Goodday family! Burnt orange is synonymous with Autumn and Winter, hence I thought this dress is befitting to make an appearance around this time. The weather has been slowly transitioning to colder days but we still have those days where we can get away with easy breezy airy dresses.

Playful Polka Dot Dress Worn Formally

Goodday family. I am so glad to be back on the platform that allows me to be just me. Where I can speak my mind without hesitation nor reservation. Today's post is centered around a playful yet formal enough look for the office. I wore this outfit to work a couple of weeks back and I deemed it fitting to share it with you.

My Personal Style

Over the last couple of years I have been trying to define my personal style and how I would like that to mould the way the world sees me. It has been a journey of many misses and of hits too to be quite honest. Now I think I am at a point where I can say I have found my personal style. One’s style is not necessarily what looks good on everyone or what is currently in fashion/trending; but what works for the individual. Fashion and style is not the same thing but they are in the same family and they complement each other. Through fashion you can find your own style. Style is when you take a piece of clothing (fashion) and you make it your own. How you wear it and it brings out your best features, now that is style.

Officially In The 30s

The weekend is upon us and I could not be any more excited. I feel like my mind has been on overdrive and I am constantly thinking and planning my life away. It can be a good thing but it can also be a bad thing as too much of planning tends to leave no opportunity for spontaneous and unplanned fun.

Reinventing Oneself

As I write this post, I reflect on my quest to being a well rounded woman. A woman after her own dreams and aspirations; a home maker; a partner and all that God desires me to be. Change is something that I often preach about but when the time comes to act on it, I am reluctant to act.  I have been thinking long and hard that I am not happy about certain things in my life. I am learning more and more, especially now as an adult that reinventing oneself should be a norm. It should live in me, it should be a part of my everyday, and it should be something I never forget to do because I would have forgotten who I am. So how am I going to see this change through? How are we going to see this change through?

A Day In My Office Wear! Post 6

Good day loves. I have been thinking long and hard about publishing consistently. Now that the blog is growing and has a steady and consistent following, I think it is time that I have a set date for publishing posts. Last year sometime I mentioned that I would like to publish every 3 to 4 days but the challenge with that is it ends up becoming random dates and I cannot keep up with it. So now the new publishing days will be every Tuesday and Saturday and bonus post to be on some Thursdays. This translates to a guaranteed 7 minimum number posts in a month; and I am working towards that. Should there be a change in the schedule for that week, I will let you know on my social media as life is life and anything can happen. I hope you welcome this new change.

What I Am Loving For Autumn And Winter 2017: Outerwear

Hello friends and family! It is that time of the year where I have to take out the Autumn and Winter wear out of storage and prepare for the change in seasons. If it were up to me, there would only be 2 seasons in a year, and that would be the latter. Every other year, I have to spruce up my wardrobe and get rid of old outerwear. Can you believe that I still have jackets, coats and knitwear from my varsity days? Now I am seeking to replace some of those pieces as they are barely recognisable from the way they used to be. So herewith are my favourites from what is in stores now. I went for pieces that I believe are versatile and can take me from one season to another. The colours are on the neutral side and are items that can be dressed up or down. From casual to smart to dressy-real dressy. These items come in multiple colours so panic not when you see my choices. These colours are in line with the ones I want to replace in my wardrobe. The links are on the labels of the items

My Savings And Debt Free Journey Whilst Still Enjoying Simple Things In Life

Last year I wrote a blog post about changing my spending habits and this is still relevant even today. Saving and spending less was one of my resolutions for 2016 and even in 2017 I am still on that tip; to buy what I need and items that I will be able to wear multiple times and most importantly to save more. This is linked to another resolution that I never mentioned but is high on my priority list and that is “being debt free”.

Enjoying The Last Few Days Of Summer

Hello Guys! We are finally into the last few days of summer and I could not be more excited. I must say that I have nothing against sunny days because some outfits are only justifiable only worn in that weather(Disclaimer lol). Even though today is officially the first day of autumn, the weather is still very much on the spring and summer tip. I mean it will still take a good number of days if not weeks to fully transition into autumn; but as mentioned in previous posts, I just prefer chilly days as the weather affords me the luxury of bringing out my outer wear.

Challenges With The New Equipment

Oh my goodness what did I get myself into. I have underestimated the learning I would have to do before I can have great pictures. The fact that it has been gloomy and raining everyday has also not helped at all. I bought the Canon 600D and my word; I am so lost between Aperture, Exposure, White Balance and Focus Modes. I thought this was a nice startup DSLR and it would be easier to learn but I have been finding myself so helpless.  There are few things that can make me feel like this and this equipment is one of them.

A Little Different For The Office

We are still celebrating the month of love and why not pull in a couple of looks that ooze just that. I have always been one to experiment with colour, prints and patterns; and this look is no different from the latter. I wore this look to the office a couple of weeks back and it received a lot of positive feedback to a point where even I could not let it go to waste. Even though I found it a bit daring and different to wear to the office, I thought I should share it with you and hear what you think about it.

Happy Valentine's Day 2017

I wish I had a profound message for you today, but surprisingly so I have none. It is hard to believe right? Valentine’s Day is not everyone’s cup of tea and I acknowledge that. There are those that are for it and believe in what this day signifies; and others that could care less for it.

Love And Happiness Is A Choice

I have been getting lots of questions from friends and family asking me how I knew my partner was the one. And to be quite frank, I did not know that he was the one. All I knew is that he and I shared similar values. Then I chose love!

Thank You For Caring

Greetings dear friends and family! I have no excuse as to why I have not been posting lately as I had posts that I wrote last year and just never got around to publishing them. But to be quite honest, life has just been throwing curve balls left, right and center hence I was drained and had no energy at all. But I am happy to say that things are normalising and you can expect better content than last year.

2017 Our Year!

Compliments of the New Season to you and yours! I know I have not been consistent but I have been enjoying the best life could give and somehow my being is refusing to snap out of it. I am still a bit tired and drained, even when I get enough sleep I still don’t feel like my rejuvenated self. How were your holidays?
