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 😂. (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

What I Wore | Makeup & Outfit | ASOS | Primark

Hello and welcome to my blog. This is another what I wore. First I will give you some spiritual food. The scripture today was taken from Colossians 1:29 and 2 - 11. The summary of what was taught to us was to be careful of philosophy of man which has no life in it. And also praying as we may or may not know is a spiritual battle as Paul talks about in his praying for the people in Colosse.  The look Today I used my L A Girl Pro Foundation in Rich Cocoa. For concealer, I mixed MAC studio fix concealer in NW45 and L A Girl Pro concealer in fawn. I used Ben nye powder in to in topaz. For my eye shadow I used MUAs eye shadow pallette Nautral obsession colour 13 on the outer corners of my eyelids and 23 on the lids. I also applied a it of colour 17 in the corners of my eyes. In the outer corner to darken it a bit I applied a bit of the matte obsessed from the Ultimate undressed palette. For a face powder I used MACs studio fix in NW 45. I really like the finish look

The Natural Hair Journey Continues: Box Braiding My Own Hair

Hello and welcome. This is a hair post. I remember in secondary school, my friends would corn row my hair when my hair is not in braids. I wore braids most of the time and due to this my hair grew really long. My mum would usually braid my hair and so I rarely went to the hairstylist to plait my hair. In recent years I have been braiding my own hair. Partly due to the fact that I cannot be bothered to go and get it done. The thought of sitting for so long just haunts me and hurts my ever growing butt * sweeps hair to side. Also I notice that  In addition to this, although it does not look uber professional its cheap because I only have to buy the hair. I usually keep it in for about 2 months and I prefer not to over manipulate the hair.  When I first went natural I went to a lady to cornrow my hair and she put a hot comb through my precious natural hair like the world was at her mercy. From then I decided to do my own hair because it seemed like man
