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

B R E A T H E: One thing I am loving about staying in all day is get to let my skin breathe and take a break from wearing daily makeup. Getting my money’s worth from all the hyaluronic acid masks I’ve been hoarding 👐🏽 💦 #stayhydrated

OOTD: Ankara (Crème Of The Crop)

ankara 6

It’s Friday ABYers! How come Fridays at work always feels the longest though? Sheeesh! I have been feeling this week

sofar so I wanted to top if off with a fiercely colourful outfit of the day ;)You must know that crop tops have been in for the most part of the year. But yours truly hasn’t been spotted in one yet. I mean I do try to stick to a morning exercise routine most weeks but I am still not keen on flashing my not-yet washboard abs :/ 

Well, Gina of TeakAfrique was having none of that. She contacted me and wanted me to review one of their ankara designs. I knew I was in for a challenge when I opened the nicely wrapped gift package and found one midi skirt and two crop tops!

So I braced myself and…et voilà! What do you think of the results? Should I rock crop tops more often or quietly put that tummy away?

**Is it me or can I see a possible six pack peeking out???!! My Blogilates sessions have not been going to waste 😉  You should check out Casey’s channel. The sweating is real, but muscle I must build!

I really love these pieces by Teak Afrique. It’s always a joy to own anything in African print. Plus I love yellow! The skirt has a skater silhouette and features an elasticated band and two wide front pockets . The top is in bralet form and I must say it fits true to size. It provides major support so I didn’t even need a bra! I’m wearing a UK size 8 for both items. That is about a US 4.

The warm temperatures are on and off but when they are on they go strong! So I will be getting a lot of wear out my ankara bralet and matching skirt. Thanks Ayamo Gina and the rest of the team at TeakAfrique. Purchase this set from here. Browse other Teak Afrique items on their Etsy shop here.
