nice france 2

*These pictures are from my Summer holiday in August 2013 in Nice, France. I looked so tanned and worry-free! LOL. I need that sun back in my life. This UK negative temperatures ain’t doing my skin any justice at all. Plus my hair was till relaxed. Damn I was all about the creamy crack back then…Oh, well. I picked these pics because I was quite happy with the scenery we were able to capture here.

Today’s post isn’t really a rant (I haven’t thought of a better word, yet) more-so a post where other bloggers can share their photography and editing tips.

OOTD: All White + Mesanga Fashion House Design

By Posted on 16 6.1K

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 …

Summer Vacay: La Sirène Noire (Nice Day 1)

I’ve been aching for a well-deserved holiday for a while now. And finally got deserved it – thanks boo!
South of France was our choice destination. Our sojourn was split between Nice and Monte-Carlo, Monaco. Nice looks like movie set and Monaco is just…heaven. The scenery is everything. I’m hurting and still not over the fact that I’m back in good ol’ Birmingham but it’ll do for now. One thing I have to mention before I go on to uploading the vacay pics – it is burning hot. I’m a stern believer in black don’t crack, black don’t sunburn, all that stuff. But like hell we do! Five days of hard core sunshine and sea breeze and I’m tan as a loafer. Loving it!

We arrived pretty early on the first day so I hit the streets as soon as I’d put away my luggage. I was …

OOTD: Last Day of Summer

Aside: Went to see Skyfall last night at the Odeon and it was GRRREATTT. I now respect Javier Bardem on a whole new level. As for Daniel Craig, amazeballs. He’s never looked more fit. Great acting, perfect cast, amazing movie, unforgettable villain.
 
Now before you go ahead and think ‘Is she bonkers?’ when you spy my outfit of the day, lemme explain. I took these pictures a few weeks go when, believe it or not England still enjoyed a few days of unrelenting warmth and sunshine. I’d had my eye on a pair of ripped washed denim shorts at Miss Selfridge for weeks and finally got them. But the chance to wear them never presented itself. Then I stumbled on an article titled ’20 Worst Buys’ which was about the things that women buy the most but never end up wearing. The super short denim shorts was one of them. Grrrr. …

OOTD: All Black Errthang

As colourful as I might seem, I do love me some neutrals and black is defo one of my favourite colours. I mean come on, who doesn’t love black? First off, do you know that black goes well on EVERYBODY? Now, that’s what I call unbiased. 

We all know a few things about black, like the fact that it is slimming and everyone needs a little black dress in their closet.

But do you know that black is the most fashionable colour? Scratch that. Black IS fashion. Ever heard of the snowclone phrase, X (insert any colour) is the new black? The colloquialism “X is the new black” is a reference to the latest trend or fad that is considered a wardrobe basic for the duration of the trend, on the basis that black is always fashionable.

Think Chanel …
