What I wore: Denim and african print

Hello and welcome. This is another what I wore blog post. 



The look
With my makeup I wanted something natural and simple. So I opted for a shimmery brown eye shadow from bare minerals and pinkish nudish for my lips. I lined my lips using barry m lip pencil in plum. I'm not too sure which foundation I used my guess will be l'oreal true match in dark coffee.


The outfit
I am wearing a Kente print Corset and a pair of wide leg high Waisted denim from cheap Monday which I purchased hed from asos a few years ago. I bought a couple skinny jeans from the same brand as well as they fitted me really well due to my small waist. But I seem to have gained a few pounds on my tights so now they get stuck there and do not go any further. *cries


I managed to create two different looks with this jeans. I bought the shoes from new look the bold colour from the shoes is in the same colour block as the cost so I feel it looks really nice. 


I did try to iron but I was in a hurry so I guess I have to try harder next time. 

Thanks for stopping by, until next time. It's bye from me.

Thrifted Transformation Project: Process

Hello and welcome. It has been a while since I made a post. I promise to keep the post coming. In this post I am introducing you to an outfit I put together. The top part of the outfit is made with Kente cloth which is a traditional Ghanaian print. This was a piece of cloth that came with a dress my grandad made for me a few years back. I am having to thrift that dress and will reveal it soon. The design and material I had in mind I watched YouTube to replicate a pattern however after putting it together I didn't like it as I felt it was too revealing and was thinking of throwing it away or taking it apart and using it for something else until I had an epiphany ๐Ÿ˜‚. (I've been wanting to use this word for some time now so here goes). I wanted to wear it as a top with various skirts.  I also had a few scuba fabrics I bought from ebay I wanted to make some skirt out of it to wear with the top. I bought lining for the scuba skirt however it didn't arrive s

Switching Up My Waredrope | Haul & Try On

Hello and welcome to my blog. I recently embarked on a fashion haul. My aunty was visiting from Ghana and I accompanied her to do most of her shopping. While with her she pointed out that I need to look good for work as this is were I tend to spend most of my time. I hackened unto her to buy a few things to try and switch up my waredrope. Also I had put on a few pounds and it was time to buy new sizes as my old cloths didn't fit. My old cloths believe it or not are in sizes 4 and 6 however now I can fit in an 8 and I feel I look a lot better. I did a few shopping in Primark were I bought 3 dresses in size UK8 all of which were full price item. The mustard dress fits fine and I love the colour however the other 2 are very tight even though they are size 8. I have not worn them yet so maybe they will loosen up -  this is what happens when you can't be bothered to try stuff on before you buy them๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿพ‍♀️. I also bought several trousers and tops from H&M,

What I Have Been Up To - Investing & Developing Now Skills

Hello and welcome. It's been a long time since I posted on here and a lot has changed. I have been a bit busy doing other things however I think I will be frequenting this blog going forward. One of my recent investment Now onto what I have been up to. A few months ago I invested in a sewing machine from amazon. I was happy to get a 0% interest and paid in installment. If you are in finance you know there's no such thing as 0% interest. Ha! I did manage to sew a dress and wore it for as a bridesmaid dress at a friend's wedding. The finishing was not good and I have learnt alot from that experience. The bridesmaid dress I made ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿฟ‍♀️ I have now moved on to my second, third and forth project and will share it with you in due time. I have decided to pick this up due to the uncertainties within the corporate world. So let's wait and see what I can deliver going forward. Currently in the process or making this circle skirt dress I am very ex
