The Ankara Blazer.....

January 11, 2017



Happy Wednesday!

One of the things that I cherish most about my life is being african. There is so much beauty, and uniqueness in every culture in Africa, from the different types of food, to the different prints and colors of the traditional clothing we wear.

Since clothing is a form of identity, I believe that one of the many things that sets Africans apart are the fabrics that we use for clothing such as this blazer.
So today, I decided to show you all how I style my African-print blazer, because it can be quite difficult to style them sometimes.



I received this blazer as a gift and I just love it, especially the colors. I love pairing this blazer with neutral colors because of how colorful it is, and also it looks better with neutral colors.
For this look, I decided to pair it with a black legging, tank, and boots. For my accessories, I decided to wear gold earrings to compliment the blazer.







Ankara Blazers can also be styled with an all-white outfit or any of the colors in the print.

Happy Sunday!

Today's post is about these essentials I think every fashion girl should have in their closet this season. Why? Because these pieces are so versatile and can be worn year round. Shirt-dresses are great to wear by it self or can be paired with the leather leggings and leather jacket for more of a fierce look.

SHIRT-DRESS 

SWEATERS 

PANTS/SKIRT

JACKETS

The #1 Must-try Glam Bag.......

January 06, 2017

Happy Friday Everyone! 


Welcome back to another monthly beauty-bag subscription review. Last year, I shared my review on the Allure Beauty Box here, which is also a monthly subscription box. 

In December, I subscribed to the Ipsy Glam Bag, just to find out the rave about it, and also for their adorable makeup bags. This beauty-bag is $10 a month, and you can cancel your subscription at anytime with no charge at all. Each month, you get 5 different products ranging from makeup, haircare, and skincare. 

I like it because it is a more convenient way to try different products without breaking the bank. I was impressed with how quickly the bag arrived, however I was not impressed with a few of the products I received.

The Glam Bag.....

One thing I like about the Ipsy Glam Bag is that every month, you get a new makeup bag, which can be used as gifts or for traveling.


The Products.....

So far I have not tried all the products yet, however scroll down to see my review on the products that I have tried.






HIT:

  • NYX Prismatic Eyeshadow: this eyeshadow is absolutely gorgeous, from its pigmentation to color. The eyeshadow is in the shade Fireball.

MISS:

  • The HIKARI eyeliner is such a miss! This eyeliner is not as pigmented or dark as eyeliners usually are. Also, the color is horrible!

QUESTIONABLES:

  • The MAKE moonlight primer: I am not so sure about this product. I think it works well; I will monitor how well it works and I will let y'all know.

That is all for today. Please leave questions or comments and let me know if you plan on trying out this beauty subscription bag. 

Have an awesome weekend!!
