H E A L I N G: ⁣How’s everyone doing so far today?⁣⁣Revisiting one of my favourite books by @theijeoma and almost every quote is relatable in the middle of this revolution that’s happening. ⁣⁣“1. You must let the pain visit.⁣2. You must allow it teach you.⁣3. You must not allow it overstay.”⁣⁣— Ijeoma Umebinyuo, Questions for Ada⁣⁣Pain comes in different forms. Pain can be quiet. Pain can sneak up on you. Remember it’s okay to feel overwhelmed and also okay to log off and recuperate. ⁣⁣What’s happening is painful but it is NECESSARY. It’s allowed so many black people to express years and years of pent up pain, anger and frustration.⁣⁣But remember to allow yourself to heal ✊🏾🙏🏾 ⁣ #blacklivesstillmatter

P U L L  U P: Morning ig fam. Diversity is a strength, not a threat ✊🏻✊🏼✊🏽✊🏾✊🏿 It’s amazing the support we’ve seen for #BlackLivesMatter over the last few days but let’s keep the momentum going. This is just the beginning. We’re not going to dismantle in a week, racism that has been in-built for decades and it’s going to take more than posting black squares on the feed. Let’s keep calling out BS where we see it. Here for @jackieaina ‘s call for brands to #pulluporshutup 🙌🏾 PS: I shared in my stories my example of a brand that needs to do better when it comes to matching up their actions with their words...

Colour Blocking Unlocked (The Secrets).

By Posted on 0 Comments 87 views
Add some colour to your manicure!

Colour blocking has for the most part been a no go fashion area. That’s because most people who dare to colour have ended up looking drastically like a poor imitation of a rainbow. But this summer you don’t need to worry about that! The secrets to colour blocking have been unlocked! Fashion experts (like us, lol) have found a way to mix contrasting colours to make them look appropriately eye catching.With stars like Kim Kardashian, Cheryl Cole and Rihanna leading the trend, colour blocking is obviously this summer’s MUST DARE!

  • The first thing to know about colour blocking is ALWAYS choose colours from different hues. Choosing colours from the same hue or shade does not work because one shade (usually the stronger shade) tends to wash out the other lighter one. Choose two strong colours from different hues. For example, purple and yellow, coral and jade, purple and coral. Two strong colours will always pop.

  • The next thing is do not pair your colour blocked ensemble with shoes or accessories in the same colour. It takes the outfit from cool and sexy to redundant and silly in one beat. Instead look for bright shoe (or clutch) shade in like say gold or turquoise.
  • Avoid over accessorizing when colour blocking. The colourful outfit is already attention grabbing enough on its own. Over accessorizing would very easily take it from classy to cheap.
  • The same goes with make up. Less is ALWAYS more. Light and natural looking make up works perfect with colour blocking. You can choose to accentuate your eyes or lips with a pop of colour but do not overdo it.
  • What next? you’re good to go (wow ’em!)
