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

OOTD: All White + Mesanga Fashion House Design

Continuing with the theme from my last Outfit Of The Day of repping for Camer talent, I present Mesanga Fashion House

Some weeks ago, the talented and lovely Cameroonian designer Yve Mesanga sent me over this beautiful jacket in one of my favourite colours; blue. You have read about MFH before in my previous post on the African Fashion Week New York runway show where they slayed a few months back. I’ve been more than excited to wear this blazer as it’s so rare to find African designs anywhere in Birmingham. 

I finally got the chance to showcase this amazing blazer. I opted for all white, so I let the bright blazer be the showstopper of the outfit. This MFH piece boasts a rouched shoulder detail, two pockets in contrasting African print and its lapels are lined with the same fabric.It’s such a great piece to own because there’s so many ways to wear it. I already know what I’m gonna wear this with next 🙂 If you like what you see, there’s much more exclusively on the Mesanga Fashion House site

On a totally unrelated note: As I was taking pictures for this blog post, guess who sashayed by on a quiet Sunday afternoon almost unnoticed by me; Omotola Jalade aka Omosexy herself! 

I almost didn’t recognize her because she looked super casual and relaxed. And then I was like, hold up, it’s Omotola! I asked her for a picture but she took one look at my camera and said; “Hey, it’s a professional camera. Chei, I’m not dressed up now. But I’ll give you a hug though.”:(  My mom’s going to be so jealous. #ihuggedyourphave. Mwahahaha!

That made my Sunday. What made yours?

    The ankara detailing on the jacket adds all the glam you need! Keeping it simple with the all white look was a smart & fashionable move. LOVE IT!!! 🙂
