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

Umba: Handcrafted With Love

One thing I love about blogging is the fact that you get to encounter and interact with some of the most creative people. There are more innovative people out there than we can ever imagine. One of them is the creative brain and magic hands behind Umba. Umba is an African textile jewelry and accessory line using only high quality african wax and ankara wax fabrics which I stumbled upon on Facebook. The handcrafted designs are unique, the fabric is out of this world, every piece is a stand out. There was no way I could resist doing a blog post on it.

 

About the brand.

Umba ~ Origin Swahili (V) to create, make, or mold. 
Umba is an African textile jewelry line that only uses high quality African Ankara wax fabric. Ankara African fabrics are expressed culturally through rich vibrant patterns and colorful designs. n the creator’s own words, “the world we live in often dictates what we should wear, we respond by crafting timeless pieces that evolve every generation. Umba ensures that each piece created is created using time, patience, and positive energy. Every piece of jewelry from Umba is handcrafted and custom made, NO two pieces are ever identical. Life is full of duplications; why not complement yourself with something unique and original? At Umba we embrace, individuality, comfort, and fun. Become your own trendsetter…..Dream. Embrace.Explore. Dare. “

The Brain behind the Brand.

Owner and designer Chelsie “Chloe” Hart, established Umba in the summer of 2012. Umba is a manifestation of visions, dreams, and inspirations. Early on, Chelsie took a deep interest in African culture and fashion. While attending VCU, her interest was sparked by being emerged in an extreme multicultural environment. On Chelsie’s 25th birthday, she recalls a vivid vision of an accessory line featuring a core of African fabric in every original piece. And from this vision, Umba slowly began to take form and is now blooming into a full jewelry/accessory line and much more. The basis of Umba is modernized African culture, tradition, and fashion. Chelsie is currently bringing this inspiring vision to life in her hometown, which is located in the beautiful state of Virginia.
