What I Wore | ASOS | Club L

Hello and welcome to my blog. In this post I will be writing about my my birthday look last year.


I envisioned everything before purchasing the dress, the shoes and the piece of hair I added to mine. In this shoot I wore my own hair as i had a strong edge to wear my own hair. If you have plaits, it will look really nice on it too. Another garment I envisioned with this look was a fur coat of some sort, however I couldn't find one. I might just redo this again soon. 


I wanted to go bold and stand out with the colours. I must have seen the dress a couple of times while browsing on ASOS. So I opted for this velvet goldfish-mustardish colour dress from ASOS. The brand is Club L in UK size 8. I fit in this size perfectly now as I am usually a 4 or 6.

"... in everything that you do, do it with all your might because in the grave there no  work, device wisdom and knowledge"
The shoes are called truffle also from ASOS. The shoes can be quite difficult to walk in however if you do not make sudden movement, you should be fine and stable most of the time.

I have seen this mustard colour combination with black alot so this was my time to try and be different. The colour shoes I thought were electric blue, gold and red. 


I got the makeup done by a friend so it looks better last year than this year but it still works out fine in my opinion. Please picture below.

Last years look
I loved the boldness of the colours from the dress to the shoes and the lipstick. Whereas it is not overly daring, you can wear this to some summer parties even to summer weddings as a guest. Why because summer is approaching and we want to look our best.

Check out my YouTube video for this look in the beginning of this post and let me know what you would have done differently.

I Made My First Wig With Lace Closure

Hello and welcome to my blog. In this post I will be writing about some of the things I have been up to, particularly things to do with hair.
I had this routine where I braided my hair and kept it for about a maximum of 3 months, took it down, treated my scalp and then follow the cycle again.
To be honest I was a bit tired of this process as it took a little over 10 hours to braid the hair and the thought of taking it down was a bit daunting too.

The initial plan was to have a friend construct a wig for me however because she lives a bit too far from me I gather this courage and awoke the wild side of me to fantasize about the idea of making my own wig.


And I did 😁. I purchased the equipment from aliexpress.com together with two set of hair:  1) Two 14 inches bundles and a 12inches  closure; 2) Three 10 inches bundles and 8 inches closure. I bought both of these from aliexpress. 


To be able to do this I watched a few videos from peakmill, estelive and Ashley Bedeck on YouTube. I made what I…

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.

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.

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.
I am very excited to showcase all my works on here so stay tuned!

Until next time, enjoy life through exploring other opportunities.
