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

OOTD: Golden

gold sequin nye outfit a

Living my life like it’s golden by Jill Scott is one of my favourite songs. It’s all about living in the moment and treasuring every moment. Living in every moment like it’s your last. It’s New Years Eve and of course sequins and bold metallics serve as the perfect elements for a perfect night out look. But this is more than just an NYE outfit idea. However flamboyant you decide to look tonight. Let it be more than just an outfit. Let it be your attitude. Let it be your voice. Make your personality stand out as much as that sparkly dress…

This year has been full of ups and downs and lots of surprises too! Last month I lost my Aunt. She was my mum’s older sister and the hurt was immense. She’s one of the funniest people I’ve ever known. We were so close that I used to tell my mum not to feel irreplaceable because I had my Aunty Frida, hahaha. But life always has the last laugh. On boxing day I heard shocking news about one of my classmates who died in a fatal car crash. I am still in shock. He was so young and enthusiastic. Things like that put your life decisions into perspective.

New year resolutions are overrated but this year if I’ve learnt one thing, it’s that life is about seizing every moment. Never procrastinate. If you want to do something, go for it. NOW. Take a chance. There’s no guarantee that chance will ever present itself again.

I don’t mean to sound downbeat on NYE but that will be my mantra in 2016.

And of course I’ve had the most amazing year for which I am thankful for. My blog has grown immensely. I’ve collaborated with brands that I looked up to, how cool is that??! My style has been evolving and I’ve gained a new found confidence. I’ve even uploaded my first YouTube video. Something I have been too timid to do, but I’m getting past that now. Granted the video quality/content are not on pro levels yet, but I’m getting there. My next video is looking soooo much better already. thanks to all your lovely feedback.

I’m also starting a brand new job in the new year as a Digital Development Officer, so excited! God is good oh!

And speaking of blessings, I got my 2015 statistics report from the WordPress team. My blog was viewed a whopping 1.1 million times this year and I owe a massive thank you to Moji of Mojintouch, Dana Fashina of I’ve Got Cake, Abrielle of No Rule, Just Style, Jackie of Style My Dreams and the famous ‘anonymous’ commenter E. I need to find out who they are! Y’all are too sweet. Thank you 🙂

    Happy new year. I so love your opening statement about let what you wear speak about your attitude towards life which is so important as with this is mind it will align your life in that direction. So sorry about your aunt and friend may their souls rest in peace. Life is so short and we should enjoy and cease every opportunity that come our way. Congrats on all your successes in 2015 and I believe greater things are in store for 2016. You look amazing and keep shining bright.
