S E L F L E S S  C A R E: Week 3 of lockdown and my nails have left the chat...🥴 I whined a little but then realised if all I’ve got to worry about during this pandemic is beauty treatments and nail appointments then I’m on the better end of all the shit that’s going on. Grateful for health and laughter 🤍  #StaySafe #HappyNewWeek

S M O O T H  O P E R A T O R:  3 weeks post my first laser hair removal treatment @birminghamprivateclinic and my legs are still smooth AF 🙌🏾 I haven’t needed even a quick trim since. ⁣My only regret is why didn’t I go this SOONER?! My first session dispelled a lot of misconceptions I’ve always had about laser treatments. ⁣⁣1. It can definitely be done on dark skin. ⁣2. You can still get your bikini area (full Hollywood 😜) done on your period as long as you are comfortable 🙌🏾👌🏾 ⁣⁣What a weight off my shower routine this has been especially as my regrowth  is normally super quick. Have you ever had laser treatment?  #ad #gifted #laserhairremoval

E M P T I E S: (SWIPE LEFT) Something different for the feed...🤍Thought it’d be helpful to put together a list of my #empties. There’s always a lot of different products being inboxed, advertised and shown in tutorials. But what are you actually using through and through? These are products I use on the regular and would definitely repurchase because they’re all so good!👌🏾 More empties on my stories (this is limited to 10 unfortunately) and all links to products are on my blog (link in bio). Let me know if you want to see more content like this regularly. What are your empties?? I love to know what everyone’s loving 🥰😍😍 xx .#SelfCareSunday #SkincareEmpties #beautyempties

Afric’Art: House of Farrah

By Posted on 1 Comment 43 views
Afric’art as the name suggests is a segment on my blog which I want to use to show case art in any form by Africans or Black people in general. Many of us do come do come across new and innovative ideas that really impress us but we lack a forum to share these discoveries or new finds. The shameful truth is that, this is part of  the main reason why for budding designers, artists, singers etc of black descent find it particularly extra challenging to succeed in into whatever competitive business atmosphere they are trying to burst into.  Afric’art is the place where you’ll read about all my latest finds, cravings and crushes. And because one man’s tea is another man’s dishwater, you’ll also find the less impressive or just mere odd ones. So the best of everything really.
My first post in this segment is going to be the the elegant fashion line House of Farrah which was created by Nigerian Fatimu Aliyu Garba.
House of Farrah specializes in classic, timeless and elegant pieces. Those are three words every lady wants to be described as. Farrah epitomizes luxury and exclusivity and produces only a very limited quantity for each piece which gives the brand that ‘rare gem’ quality. I first noticed the House of  Farrah’s designs at the ARISE fashion week in Lagos a few days ago and I must say it was one of, if not the best, collections that showcased at the ARISE fashion week. I would describe the looks as very ready-to-wear and yet classy.
This particular collection had a Grecian air about it which just made me to fall head over six inch heels with it even more. I practically drooledsover some of the pieces.
My verdict: Hats off (in fact wigs off) to you Fatima. You have succeeded in making a woman look sexy without necessarily having to dress her in skimpy clothing :p The only downside is the models look a tad bit under-styled to me. Hence  8/10.
Do you think I’ve rated Farrah fairly? What would you give the House of Farrah?
